Boldness Begets Genius

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)

Genius Begets Genius - Another planksip Möbius

Genius Begets Genius

Be bold my son, go out and conquer the world. Ordered thinking is the category of the day that I would like to discuss. All the begetting that began with the Bible and ends with, well, something new. But is it really new?

This competition is hard to confine, and yet the relational database of populations that point to the genius among us is really just a comparison. A worthwhile heuristic to use is that correlation doesn't mean causation. When someone's intelligence is categorized as being of a mensa-ish level, then the implications may or may not be greatness. Many a genius suffer a burden more extensive than the heard. Mentality is hardly an excuse.  Be bold in your actions. Genius may be more about the artful Praxis of Goodness than we imagine.

Content Co-Creation: Content Creation Worth Living

Depending on how you discovered planksip you may or may not have seen the content that we have created for other intellectuals and fellow thought leaders. Here are a few examples;

COVID & CLIMATE CHANGE CORRELATIONS WITH PROFESSOR STEVE KEEN

The pandemic is the warm-up exercise, the trial run in the mad scramble to form some sort of comprehensible and realistic response to deal with the accelerating warming of the climate and the biodiversity imbalance that we, as a species, have wrought on this planet. Work is an economic activity that, until now, is largely incompatible with the health of the planet. This channel explores these topics and more. Themed around the post-Keynesian economics of Professor Steve Keen, we have a solution. The question remains, will we change or blindly follow the doctrine of "business as usual"?

TALK IS THE BEST MEDICINE

PHILOSOPHY TALKS WITH BOB AND SCOTT

Philosophy Talks, With Bob And Scott, is a series of conversations about fundamental philosophical ideas, problems, and topics, from A to Z.

The aim of these conversations is to move us beyond the false dichotomy between Analytic philosophy and so-called “Continental” philosophy–as if there were no other relevant alternatives: but in fact, there is at least one–toward a broadly and radically Kantian philosophy of the future.

SCOTT & DAN'S HIGH ONTOLOGY

Jacob Bronowski’s poetic and crystal clear survey of humanity’s greatest moments of cognitive penetration will leave you flabbergasted. Jacob takes you behind the scenes and relives our greatest intellectual climaxes—from Australopithecus through quantum mechanics—in a way that is impossible to misunderstand.

Hosted by Scott & Dan’s High Ontology—a newly launched YouTube and Facebook podcast—we are inviting you to participate in the Live Event on the planksip.
