Living Life Through Multiple Lenses - A Pluralist's Perspective and a planksip Möbius

Oh what a tangled web we weave, said the cannon to the fodder. Who pays the price for consequentialism, the iterative "improvement" without a Telos? Lens grinders and perspectives blurred to the point the pluralist is so right, its wrong! What's left when everyone gets a turn at Truth and the Classics are discarded in ignorant self-aggrandizement and in the age "spirit" of sharing? Whatever that means!

Interesting Perspective

Inspired by José Saramago's quote, "Perhaps it is the language that chooses the writers it needs, making use of them so that each might express a tiny part of what it is." The titled responsion is "Interesting Perspective". What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

A meta-language with deterministic tendencies is an interesting perspective. Let's for a moment agree that it's absolutely not true, in this case, is there any value to this perspective? If your answer is no, there is no value to an untrue statement, then I will ask you, what is the meta for?

Physics, Sex and the Reason Why

Inspired by Richard Feynman's quote, "Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it." The titled responsion is "Physics, Sex, and the Reason Why". What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

If you replace the sexual in Sexual Selection with Physics and reverse the order you get Selection Physics. This makes no sense as far as I can see, yet the select act of "doing" physics is a pleasurable act worth doing on a daily basis. Will it make you blind? Probably not, so do what you do!
