Re: The Center

we suppose beforehand that our processes of thought and conation are those of Nature, whereas they are a conditioned process with limited technique within our understanding: in no manner are we spontaneous - though other powers in us may simulate such when we are sufficiently automatic.

Re: Sailing the Seven Seas of Life

always has there been this subconscious doxology: "I believe in the Arabian Nights", or "in all my wishfull thinking", and this is certainly as near truth as any other truth - usually more so.Truth is - what we make truth.

Re: The Thinker of the Thought

things more fantabulous than themselves are expressed through Art when our selves are expressed in them. That would be a problem.

Re: The Thinker of the Thought

Poetic license is a fallacy for a reason. It allows the author to sidestep criticisms and fake depth. However, by framing your intention and message in simple, direct language -- or as a question -- you will be unable to engage in this fallacy. You will not be able to be pretentious. If you truly a...
