And I am drawn between.

I am an artist at heart, but with intellectual reflection. I am a philosopher in an artistic sense, rather than a ‘pure reason’ saint. My experience is not exclusionary. Hence my dilemma. In not only thought, but indeed act. Where it becomes the most difficult is in our Post-modern Marxist world of production. There is… Continue reading And I am drawn between.

Post-modernism’s Worth. 

When we are too close to an event, we talk about it as from a distance. That is, what we say is automatically distanced from the event, a maximum distance. The event is thus, by this occurrence, an object. As opposed to our psychotherapeutic model, the closer we are to an event, the more dishonest… Continue reading Post-modernism’s Worth.

The Significant Event: The Romance, Irony and the Veto.

Significance. What we can call the Romance is based upon and or around what I call the significant experience, which falls well in line with Alain Badiou's 'Event', what could then be called the significant event. The irony that surrounds this feature of being human concerns a confusion of the individual, between what arises of… Continue reading The Significant Event: The Romance, Irony and the Veto.

Whew! Those Impossible essays really get thick. So perhaps a rejoining to a more approachable speaking. But hold on! The ride is just getting fun. I have been interacting through comments and replies with Dave, who writes the blog called "Big Story Guide". Our conversation is quite wonderful, so, just as I used our conversation… Continue reading The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.

Post-post-modern-modernism: The Mistake of Irony; Or, The Ironic Mistake.

Perhaps a little bitty on postmodernism and the, what could be labeled of our current situation, post-post-modern-modernism. Here are a couple links that roughly define the conventional problem I will address in this essay. The first is a little less ridiculous than than the second. The first offers us an argument for why postmodernism is… Continue reading Post-post-modern-modernism: The Mistake of Irony; Or, The Ironic Mistake.

Extreme Dialectic: Spinoza and the Term (revisited).

"AS men are accustomed to call Divine the knowledge which transcends human understanding, so also do they style Divine, or the work of God, anything of which the cause is not generally known: for the masses think that the power and providence of God are most clearly displayed by events that are extraordinary and contrary… Continue reading Extreme Dialectic: Spinoza and the Term (revisited).

I subscribe to a blog called "Bigstoryguide" where he author is involved with a running commentary as he goes through the Bible. Yes, the whole Bible. His blog he calls 'Jesus's death to life project'. I think he just got to the New Testament. I am not a Christian; I am not religious nor prescribe… Continue reading Issues and Existence.
