  • The Truth is not on Trial: The Religious Apology for Reality.

    Lets see if we can get anywhere. The issue is Truth. No other issue is significant. Other issues may exist, but then of these questions, the matter of existence is at issue. What is True is not in question; rather, where we have the question “What is Truth?” thereby do we have a misunderstanding of…

  • Faith And reality.

    “If I cannot rely on the world to be consistent (I do not mean willful consistency) I will not be able to function meaningfully in it.” This quote from This blog is a perfect statement of what I mean as ‘faith’ that functions for consciousness as a suture that holds the consistency of reality together. Faith functions…

  • A Brief Outline of the Bases of Object Orientation.

    A Brief Outline of the Bases of Object Orientation.

    I find often that philosophers love to complicate everything and then turn around and tell you its simple, and then write a paper that uses all sorts of jargon. 😉 I think many philosophers dont even know any more wtf they are talking about. One might want to say or think that object orientation came…

  • A Story.

    Dave at Big Story Guide is always wanting me to put my critical ideas in a story form. Well, here’s one for Dave that concerns my earlier post about irony:   First, irony. In short: The last thing one would expect. There are mundane comic kind of ironies, and then there also stretches a kind of ‘cosmic’…

  • Repost:One and Two: Politics, Governance, and Antagonism; and comment. 

    First the repost:  Perhaps it could be said that politics is that which occurs at that precise moment that we learn to count to Two.  If this were the case, then it would follow that not everything is political.  Everything can become political, but politics is something is something that must be made to be. …

  • Awareness: part 2

    Some one posted a comment to this post of mine, to which I replied, but then I made it into a new posting. You can check the comments of the original post  here:  “We will find, inevitably, as a kind, that the only things that change are the objects of our view, and not any…

  • The Role of the Hermit.

    The hermit is a conventional scapegoat. The categorization imposed upon a person allows the conventionally faithful their comfort in reality. “…the act of insaturation has to provide the opportunity to encounter beings capable of worrying you. Beings whose ontological status is still open but are nevertheless capable of making you do something, of unsettling you…Beings…

  • A Preliminary Situation of Latour’s [PRE] / [NET]

    The issue that concerns Latour shall be used here as an example of how The Philosophical Hack plays and how it can be applied. Note: Reality is a necessary situation, and Latour’s project, as well as Prof Sassen’s in my previous post,both which   stem toward an inclusion of what is either invisible and or…

  • 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…
