Things solve themselves
Overgrown shreds of our memories emerge from rich corinthian leather. Within the complex interlocking of ecology, survival intricately executes. Humans have no privileged place in nature and are subject to organic controls.
“She had drawn the veil across the view toward the past; now she looked forward only.” – George R. Stewart
An ontological challenge located on the interface boundary is understood in terms of non-inferential sensation response.
“Instead of coming to have a concept of something because we have noticed that sort of thing, to have the ability to notice a sort of thing is already to have the concept of that sort of thing, and cannot account for it.” – Wilfrid Sellars
Merely to say
Sometimes ‘things-in-themselves’ are distinctly interesting in their presented space and time coordinates. Through aesthetic appraisement, metaphysics is capable of extending our knowledge of reality.
“To be is to be the value of a variable.” – Willard Van Orman Quine
Praxis delimits a field
Implicit transcendent element
The dynamics of the unconscious may be an intellectualization. Well-equipped concepts, in the process of formation, are in relation to functions that are more general. This rationalization is certainly one of the many features implicating aesthetic creation.
“Nature provides signifiers, and these signifiers organize human relations in a creative way, providing them with structures and shaping them.” – Jacques Lacan
Stepping out of line
Any time will do
For Schelling, every growth of nature has but one moment of perfect beauty, or flash of full existence. In this instant, it is what it is for eternity.
“Art, in that it presents the object in this moment, withdraws it from time, and causes it to display its pure being in the form of its eternal life.” – Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling
Accuracy does not work
Understanding its relevance
Extremes of absence
Aesthetic judgment bridges the gap between the observable and the possible. The transition is reasonable as the mind passes from the one to the other. Attempting to attain experience independence, indifference is unjustified.
“I like photography because it is a reality medium, unlike drawing which is unreal. I like to mess with reality … to bend reality.” – Storm Thorgerson
Coordinating substances and incidents alike, the intricate detail put into a transitional portal passively attracts attention pulled into the future. Rather than the basis for action, time emerges from action.
“It is extremely wholesome . . . to let the realities of life split upon an arbitrary interest. You transform something accidental into the absolute, and, as such, into the object of your admiration.” – Søren Kierkegaard
Falling all around
Been in between
Not every element of experience is describable. Of the moment, aesthetic practice can contemplate without the expectation of understanding. In this fashion, it all gets very intense.
“Extension, apart from its spatialization and temporalization, is that general scheme of relationships providing the capacity that many objects can be welded into the real unity of one experience.” – Alfred North Whitehead
Space and time are two necessary conditions for any perception to be experienced. Kant observes that rather than being universal concepts under which sensible things are categorized, space and time are singular concepts in which sensibilia begin to become knowledge.
“There are no differences in kind except in duration – while space is nothing other than the location, the environment, the totality of differences in degree.” – Gilles Deleuze
A distinction understood in terms of objects, Kant divides knowledge into sensitive and intellectual. Attending to the sensitive, form and matter interlace. Matter is what is given by the presence of sensible substance. Contributed by the knowing subject, form co-ordinates matter as the necessary condition of sensitive knowledge.
“Philosophy is not the reflection of a pre-existing truth, but, like art, the act of bringing truth into being.” – Maurice Merleau-Ponty
