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

For now it is a new, old afternoon. Entangled within natural layers of visual vernacular observance, dreams remain tethered to something antediluvian.
“Well, the future for me is already a thing of the past.” – Bob Dylan
Positioning all things in the universe as animated, some ancient Greek philosophers were hylozoists. Thales, Anaximenes, and Heraclitus taught that all material objects are alive, without necessarily possessing sensations or experiences. The Stoics believed that a world soul was the vital force of existence. In this way, spirit may be a universal and primordial feature.
“Knowledge is not a passion from without the mind, but an active exertion of the inward strength, vigor and power of the mind, displaying itself from within.” – Ralph Cudworth

Surprisingly, bananas are the most consumed fruit in the United States. Although not indigenous to Mexico, banana exports have risen rapidly in recent years. The production of bananas for export came with colonialism, promoted as bringing ‘modernity’ to tropical regions by making beneficial use of otherwise worthless jungle.
“Time flies like an arrow – but fruit flies like a banana.” – Terry Wogan
Two simultaneous facts profoundly interpenetrate consciousness. In this way, the temporal orders in which phenomena arrange do not allow arbitrariness. We naturally differentiate present sensation from the remembrance of past sensations. Within the domain of perception, the apprehension of time is relatively unequivocal.
“To doubt everything, or, to believe everything, are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.” – Henri Poincaré
Most every event or seemingly random circumstance, including common human decisions and actions, are the inevitable and necessary consequence of previously existing causes.
“As weird as it may seem, I enjoy doing laundry and watering my plants, very normal things like that.” – Kimberly Schlapman
The ideal of disembodied enlightenment is found lurking in cryptic ground patterns, even as expectations slant the determinations. Time necessarily involves temporal relations having an intrinsic direction.
“There is a kind of memory in nature: what happens now is influenced by what happened before.” – Rupert Sheldrake

Seeing what might be going on, a memo is released from the lake, reflecting on the strong and uncompromising. Using the planet as a prop, the form of everything changes and moves, but time itself is immutable.
“Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.” – Jimi Hendrix
Stealthily positioned in a postmodern landscape, infinite variability prevails in a field of similarity as aspects of a private sectarian world.
“So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You’re like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know…..” – Walter Sobchak
Comfortably imbibing surrounding things – an amalgam of austere objects and images – power and influence have a vast reach. Despite a great refinement, in fact, very little is real. We each have our own version of events.
“When one creates a psychedelic film, one need not create a film that shows the visions of a person who has taken a pill; rather, one needs to manufacture the pill.” – Alejandro Jodorowsky
