Functional Fixedness

If you are stuck on learning for the sake of learning and lack understanding, the wisdom of Heraclitus (535-475 BC) may be for you. This back and forth gameplay of memory and recall is all about timing and selective association. What information are you learning and how do you anticipate you will use it in your future?

Smokescreen

If you attack my credentials and right to occupy my position I can defend myself and justify my existence with my actions, happiness and ability to respond to the obstacles and oppressive forces in my life. When you attack the foundation of society there is no response that I can give to dissuade you from your ideology, if your movement gains power I have no voice to object to the Marxist doctrine. Capitalism is problematic and an ideology of sorts, but the answer is hardly found anywhere near Frankfurt. Look to the jurisprudence and the laws of our land to determine whether or not any forme of objective oppression is silently implemented to oppress the masses for the good of the powerful.

Instrumental Inventory

Measuring the not-so-measurable is easier said than done.  How do you measure love, justice or goodness? The good in itself is a good a place as any and resonates with Plato's formes. For me, the virtuous act is one that habituates perfection towards your friends and people you love.

Dialectic on Empiricism

This measured conversation is on the court, so to speak. If we reverse what the mind's eye is prepared to comprehend we quickly approach nothingness and the essence of the null hypothesis beyond a reasonable doubt. So what's the alternative?

The Artful Utility of Aesthetics

On either side of utility lies Beauty, and as I have maintained elsewhere, the essence my aesthetics lies deep within the cellular level. Moving towards homeostasis and equilibrium the pain-pleasure pathway lights the subjective felt experience we question on a daily basis. The irony persists nightly as we lose ourselves in dream states, spindles and myelinations.

Utility is Functional

Utility and usefulness are combinatorial in nature. The essence of one defines the other with a subtle Existential reference to Nothingness. Functionally speaking this a circular conversation. To get to the origin story you must begin at the beginning and make sure you read the footnotes to Plato.
