A roadside attraction that is oblivious to its charms opens up at high speed. All things move relative to one another except the speed of light that is perhaps an absolute universal frame of reference.
“Contrary to what phenomenology–which is always phenomenology of perception–has tried to make us believe, contrary to what our desire cannot fail to be tempted into believing, the thing itself always escapes.” – Jacques Derrida
From forest to prairie, stepping through a transitional zone is a marvelous transformation.
“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” – John Muir
Back in time
The accident of individual disposition determines a subjective relationship to actuality. In an adaptive mode, a basic functioning principle centers on creating a comfortable circumstance.
“One of the things life has taught me is that nothing is a matter of indifference if one has a moderately clear view of reality: everything, even what seems least important, produces effects that either help or harm.” – José Ortega y Gasset
Strong to severe
The intellect functions both in rational and nonrational ways, as the powers of sense perception are entangled by creativity. Thus a dramatic atmospheric anomaly on the horizon stimulates imagination to translate what is given into astonishment.
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” – Vivian Greene

Morality pertains to doing, making use of human free will, on which depends man’s action of being virtuous or evil. On the other hand, art pertains to making that depends on whether the artwork is excellent or awful.
“Art is intellectual by essence, as the odor of the rose pertains to the rose, or spark to fire. Art, or the proper virtue of working reason, is–in the realm of making–an intrinsic perfection of the intellect.” – Jacques Maritain
The power of inclement weather amplifies on the ocean shore, charging the thick air with sublime tension. Operating within an ominous domain is remunerative in and of itself.

An avenue of phenomenological investigation with respect to mental content and processing considers distinctions between internalism and externalism. Externalists characteristically maintain that differences in thought can be extra-phenomenally divergent. This is because sensational elements independent of phenomena form the basis of any phenomenal experience, implying a significant intuitional relationship between intentionality and exterior experience.
“From Brentano, Husserl drew the principle that all consciousness, by its very nature, is a consciousness ‘of’, in other words, is intentional.” – Christopher Macann
