Wealth of the Mind, Not the Bank Account

Unmediated concepts ... veil the relations between objects. ... They are, therefore, objects of knowledge, but the object which is known through them is not the capitalist system of production itself, but the ideology of its ruling class.

- György Lukács (1885-1971)

Wealth of the Mind, Not the Bank Account

Inspired by György Lukács (1885-1971)'s quote, "Unmediated concepts ... veil the relations between objects. ... They are, therefore, objects of knowledge, but the object which is known through them is not the capitalist system of production itself, but the ideology of its ruling class."

Unmediated self-interest is the charge Marxism accuses the powerful of wielding. Their proposal is to deconstruct all power structures of authority under the common and exaggerated threat of capitalism. The wealthy minded create a currency with an innate mechanism of inflation that pays nothing but a lifetime of dividends.

Common is a Subset of Knowledge

Inspired by John Locke (1632-1704)'s quote, "New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common."

Is emergent Phenomenology a forme of Existentialism? It is according to me, without historicity. Rhyme nor reason are the incipit origin of the idea, for this would be Platonic and Being so makes it an Ontology of sorts. The sorting function makes it beautiful and defines my particular brand of Aesthetics, a footnote to something new (again). Möbius!

Keep an Open Mind to Anyone Who Will Listen

Inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940)'s quote, "Whenever you feel like criticizing any one...just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."

​Criticism is easy from the lofty perch of one's perspective, entertaining a pluralistic sensibility isn't easy to do. Running multiple counterfactuals in counterpoint to your own epistemological ontology is a brain-bending exercise in convergent and divergent thought. The upside is understanding.

Open to being Open

Inspired by Sappho (630-570 BC)'s poem; Exhortation to Learning as translated by Willis Barnstone;

A handsome man guards his image a while;
a good man will one day take on beauty.

The neon lights within go out but once a lifetime. Let's try and make it a fruitful one. This knowledge and wisdom of being open to goodness is our default state. Try not to disrupt the trend and keep an open mind. How do you become the man you want to be? And is it a good man or a selfish man?
