Intelligence flourishes only in the ages when belief withers.
- Emil Cioran (1911-1995)
Eudaimonica is a fictional place of flourishing prosperity, negate the utopia for it does not exist beyond the ideal. The Platonic form of Eudaimonica is rugged, yet beautiful, sustainable yet scarce in resource, abundant in safety yet unpredictably human in nature. Sounds attainable and sustainable.
I don't close the door to belief, and skeptical isn't the right word. I actually feel sad for people trying to create new belief structures and angry when I see then trying to impose these beliefs on others. My vote is to similar to Emil Cioran, wither away, and intelligence will flourish. For anyone that makes the claim that intelligence can not embrace and support emotion, family, love and compassion I say, you are simply wrong!
The debates continue. A new movement here, a cult figure there. What are we all searching for? When you think of work, what exactly are you doing? What are the people around you? Is this a reality or an ideal? What happens with they align?
I have to get back to work. :)
