As a matter of discernment, beauty is available to all people even in the most ordinary of circumstances.
“Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough.” – Richard Feynman
Wedged in space
Morns that pass by
Going back through images captured years earlier always excavates things overlooked. Creative development adopts and utilizes its changing criteria of meaning and truth.
“The ordinary consciousness conceives things as being, and studies them in quality, quantity, and measure. These immediate characteristics, however, soon show themselves to be not fixed but transient; and Essence is the result of their dialectic.” – Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Distinctively unique in resplendent neutrality, terminals are spaces of active transition.
“What you are you will carry with you.” – Louis L’Amour
Kant’s categories as underlying structures of cognition are forms and functions of judgment. Broadly speaking, cognition is the mental process of acquiring knowledge and comprehension via sensation, thought, and experience.
“Visual experience presents itself as a direct awareness of a complex physical structure.” – Wilfrid Sellars
Out in the street
Cross-town vignettes play-out on an intimate scale. Everyone is the center of his or her own microcosm.
“All you do is slow me down, and I got better things on the other side of town.” – Jimi Hendrix
Sweep of sand
Multi-modal signal processing is sanctioned on the beach, as adolescent preening successfully attracts attention in a compatable display.
“There’s never enough time to do nothing!” – Daniel Radcliffe
With discrete particle and continuous wave properties, light comes to you from all directions. Adding force fields to matter connects everything together in space and time.
“One step, two steps, three steps; like winds of time experience joy of centuries, when movements become revelations of the dance of destinies.” – Shah Asad Rizvi
Symbols for the abstract
Walk in the sun
Surrendering to the transformative powers of physical exertion, earthly ambitions fall away. Free movement in the open air can generate a plethora of stimulating ideas, engaging the mind and the spirit. Nietzsche walked to facilitate thought, while Kant walked to escape the ‘compulsion of thought.’
“Nature is a unity of diverse and opposing forces, a harmony of opposites.” – Heraclitus
Realm of forms
Mindful existence must continuously reconcile subjective and objective conditions. In Aristotle’s solution, form is located in particular individual objects, which explains coherence and objective probability. Nevertheless, he still had to resolve change versus permanence, and the viability of knowledge given limitation uncertainty.
“Science is a perception of the world around us. Science is a place where what you find in nature pleases you.” – Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar
Kant commits to the universal validity of the principle of causation as a condition of possible experience. Thus, experience is necessarily a temporal meandering. The subjective succession of apprehension manifests as objective states of affairs. An experience of objective successiveness correlates to a universal entitlement to draw conclusions about something preceding and constraining whatever is perceived as currently prevalent.
“Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will, it is always interesting.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
