“When life is hard, you have to change” sang Blind Melon, oddly in October

a morning noticed

music. it’s a touchstone. linking/locking me to times/places (Chris Isaak croons as those two flirt at The Whorehouse, Sunnyvale…), to peoples and events. Guess it has both the power to heal and the power to re-open old wounds – thus the dichotomy of living eh? What was the funny phrase Chris In the Morning used to refer to – thesis, hypothesis &??? – wait – it creeps up from the depths – helgalian dialectic? hmmm… off to google!

Dialectic or dialectics (Greek: διαλεκτική, dialektikḗ; related to dialogue), also known as the dialectical method, is at base a discourse between two or more people holding different points of view about a subject but wishing to establish the truth through reasoned methods of argumentation. Dialectic resembles debate, but the concept excludes subjective elements such as emotional appeal and the modern pejorative sense of rhetoric.[1][2] Dialectic may thus be contrasted with both the eristic, which refers to argument that aims to successfully dispute another’s argument (rather than searching for truth), or the didactic method, wherein one side of the conversation teaches the other. Dialectic is alternatively known as minor logic, as opposed to major logic or critique.


and now we know, eh? hmmm… still don’t have all three parts but it’s there I’m sure. huh. what kept us from learning these classic stances? thankfully there’s a war on critical thinking so… no big loss, eh?

Within Hegelianism, the word dialectic has the specialised meaning of a contradiction between ideas that serves as the determining factor in their relationship. Dialectic comprises three stages of development: first, the thesis, a statement of an idea; second, the antithesis, a reaction that contradicts or negates the thesis; and third, the synthesis, a statement through which the differences between the two points are resolved. Dialectical materialism, a theory or set of theories produced mainly by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, adapted the Hegelian dialectic into arguments regarding traditional materialism.

as above…

well – that clears things up – thanks Norther Exposure for the basic knowledge I need to exist in this world!

I hope I am not the only peep who trys and fails to find a path to a clearer focus, a better sense of the path

though I question the habits I’ve embraced over the lifetimes, I am happy that the accidental ‘skill’ of photography settled into my persona/character – it makes me smile thinking of the adventures for such pics.

//10:31p – learning things that should be an enjoyable adventure but alas my upbringing was not aligned in that way//

and so I’ve finished the ‘task’ – the vid is up, linked – and some words have been crafted. It’s not my best work sadly, but these times have left me flummoxed as to how to focus and get down to it. Maybe I’ll make a blog post about it all, eh?
