Humanity's PFC Defined
The Love that moves the sun and the other stars.
- Dante Alighieri (1265-1321)
Humanity's PFC Defined
Inspired by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321)'s quote, "The Love that moves the sun and the other stars.", the FFA (free form association) thought exercise that I use in this titled responsion brings the Pre Frontal Cortex into the "forefront" of the conversation. Below is a continuation of this response.
The intellectualization of felt experience defines the particular kind of consciousness unique to humanity. The words to describe love and the language that emerges is a phenomenon, emergent and epiphenomenal. (Snippet Code: p.2HCAQDt)
Words To Live By?
Inspired by Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962)'s quote, "The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.", The titled responsion ends in a questionable tone. Elsewhere in this blog, we have a variance to this responsion 'sans' question mark and represents an interesting variation in the taxonomy and subsequent ontology of this blog's structure. The responsion is below expands on this sentiment in snippet forme...
From a pedestal, these endearing sentiments act as a simple prescription for a companion of sorts. Marilyn's mantra and selective measures are simple, her ideal man doesn't dote, he looks past your earthly beauty and directly into your psyche. The mythology of the soul is a beauty that makes Aphrodite jealous, a pious perspective towards the religion of True love, with a capital T. (Snippet Code: p.2Knllki)
And not understanding it to be For Sale
Inspired by Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)'s quote, "The highest activity a human being can attain is learning for understanding, because to understand is to be free.". The titled responsion is a reaction to Spinoza's use of the word "free", I realize that this particular use of "free" is related to a freedom of sorts and not a monetary transaction, thus the "not undertanding" that proceeds the pseudo transaction is rather a tongue-in-cheek title and subtle introductory banter if you will. And now for the second half of this interaction with Spinoza...
The wisdom is that everything has a cost and not without a rhetoric of sorts, I encourage everyone to develop an honest speech, convincing and compelling. Share with those less fortunate than you but beware they accept it on their own terms, not yours. (Snippet Code: p.2NTZWE5).
Its Called the Sun and If You Play With It You Will Go Blind
Inspired by Wallace Stevens (1879-1955)'s quote, "We say God and the imagination are one . . . How high that highest candle lights the dark.", the titled responsion is a crude and solipsistic exercise intended to relieve some tension. Building to a climax of sympathetic and parasympathetic biology mixed with an old wife's tale, the blinding light of the sun is another metaphor, thrown into the mix at the risk of mixing metaphors. An anathema or so I am told!
Blinding goodness that close to the sun will drop your winged ambitions faster than Daedalus' son on a stormy day. Our life source and heliocentric imagining is what makes your head spin. God is just another story, an internal truncation of a perfectible Goodness. (Snippet Code: p.2HA1X1W)
