While remaining an inexpressible representation, the concept of the universal is abstractly considered in itself.
“To have an intuition is to express. It is nothing else! (nothing more, but nothing less) than to express.” – Benedetto Croce
When approaching any event, it is impossible to totally eliminate preconceived opinions based on reason or actual prior experience. Nevertheless, memory ensures each moment is ripe for creative invention as a function of free interpretation.
“The first thing we must do, and first of all in immediate reflective self-experience, is to take the conscious life, completely without prejudice, just as what it quite immediately gives itself, as itself, to be.” – Edmund Husserl
There are two types of empirical reality. The first is an external existence independent of any observation. The second is the way everything is real to a living subject within the consciousness of experience. Time is the connecting modality between these two realms.
“Interpretation reaches no end.” – Karl Jaspers
Stipulation sets comprising a fundamental infrastructure exist partly in exterior actual space and partly in interior psychological space. On the situational border, aesthetics validates the power and practicality of the unverifiable.
“Perception is a continuum, a precipitation of event fragments decaying in time.” – Victor Burgin
Means of entry
Probing limitations by capturing infrared radiation, photography is capable of rendering an actuality that is otherwise invisible to human sensation. This technologic capability is a hyperesthetic, albeit partial, window into that vast realm of realty that is normally hidden from view: the noumena. Such an illustration inhabits the vague territory that resides between science and philosophy.
“Such supposed anitheses as ‘abstract’ and ‘representation’ have seldom been adequate to the task of formulating relevant distinctions among the determining commitments of modern art, however familiar they may have become in the literary scaffolding erected around it.” – Charles Harrison
Field of reference
Low-level wetlands in the early spring offer an interesting perspective on niche ecosystems. Later in the summer, due to advanced vegetative growth, this area will be impenetrable.
“The proposed measure of realism is the probability of confusing the representation with the represented.” – Nelson Goodman
Limitless in its application, aesthetics is the bridge between intellectual reason and practical action. We can analyze form and content in their internal relations, and in this way exhibit our concept of reality in its partial manifestation. Duration is the succession of instantaneous indivisible moments.
“Time is known to me as an abstraction from the passage of events.” – Alfred North Whitehead
Productive imagination supports visceral experience as the objects perceived and perceiving subject fuse in a perceptual performance. In this act, Kant believed that the free play of imagination evokes much thought without the possibility of settling on any specific thought or concept. Of course, this belief is itself is a concept and so must not be part of imaginative free play.
“We are conscious of universal objects in acts which differ essentially from those in which we are conscious of individual objects.” – Edmund Husserl
Volatility shifting as an ever-progressive flux seems to operate within a larger predicable structure. Planning decisions rely on this perceived pattern predictability, while adaptability allows for contingency response. The aesthetic life spills over into all affairs, imbuing events with wonder.
“The sensible world consequently presents, so far as the general experience of mankind goes, the appearance of strict regulation.” – Bertram C. A. Windle
Definite structure reaction
The unconscious is an extremely dynamic entity that fosters much intellectual complexity. Difficulties unavoidably ensue whenever the mind seeks the unknown and imperceptible. In this regard, much of the unconscious involves things in us, which if they came to consciousness, would in no way differ from known mental content. This includes everything known but not currently thought, everything previously aware but forgotten, everything sensed but ignored, everything involuntarily felt, thought, remembered, desired, and acted upon, and all things mentally formulating that will sometime in the future come to consciousness. This last distinction is the process of intuition.
“What nature leaves imperfect, the art perfects.” – Carl Jung
