Triadic Philosophy - The Truth of Reality

Unless Reality is understood to be the beginning point
philosophy founders on the confusion between what is 
meta or methodological premise elaboration
and what is real 
Triadic Philosophy
holds that Reality
is more that what we have held to be real
(we hold most of what we "know" to be so)
Reality is also every sign thought or idea 
that rises in our minds
There is no distinction in Triadic Philosophy
between the thought of this keyboard I am tapping
which has material substance
and which most would concede to be real
and my idea of keyboards
or anything else that flits through my mind
nanosecond by nanosecond
It is all Reality
But that is NOT all
Reality is also the realm of
truths that we may not yet have thought 
signs we may not yet have perceived
and ideas we may not have thought of
It is at this point that Triadic Philosophy asserts
ontological premises
that are held to be consistent with logic and reason
and validated by experiment and experience
To give merely two examples
Will exists within Reality
Freedom exists within Reality
The truth 
(and reality for us and within us)  
of Reality
is the entire subject matter
of Triadic Philosophy

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
