Dailies: The Philosophy of Fields
1. The source of fear is the presumption of self-interest. 2. The past implies its mutability, and so the world means. 3. The dignity of life is ontological: Each life a world. 4. Despite the obvious: There is no forseeable future. Not understanding which, we suffer. 5. Brushstrokes: The 'limits' of abstraction is representation. 6. The mark of fear is selfishness. 7. As to logical form: The thought is biconditional. 8. Love is a bond, the elemental aspect of concepts. 9. Signifying as discontinuity, death can equally be cognized as release or cessation. 10. Meaning generalizes generality. 11. Art signifies ontology, so as to say: The effort of art is worlds. 12. The logic of divinity: A revelation can be believed, not trusted. 13. Difference forces possibility, and grounds it. 14. A miracle conceives the ordinary. 15. Simply, the thought walks the edge of understanding, the conceptual-temporal boundary. 16. The debris of generality: A cancer cure as irrelevant as religion. 17. Much as Zen: The thought resolves in silence. 18. Thought is war, as in the word. 19. Multiplying Kabbalah: Each thought a world. 20. That Shakespeare stopped writing: Hamlet as self- portrait. The Tempest saw Jamestown surviving and Galileo finding the moons of Jupiter. 21. The Leonardo effect, in terror of creativity. 22. Intimacy is the dyadic of fear. 23. The obfuscations of post-modernism: Insufficient of generality, ontological paradigms fail as ontological solutions. 24. Only the meaning of the world ends all forms of fear. 25. The thought is difficult, the alternative unbearable. 26. Art is subject, the world ground. 27. Alternatively, metaphorically, the thought implies the love of God. 28. Creativity, generality: To undo a not. 29. God, sunyata, nothingness are metaphors of futurity. 30. The past can be changed, and regained. 31. The thought has the power to end human pain: 45 minutes of focus, 45 minutes from now. 32. Owen: To be clay, and fired. 33. We are 45 minutes away from the end of pain. 34. Harold Jacobs, teacher and author: Say everything 3 times. 35. As Oedipus the Sphinx, the thought the world. 36. Shakespeare: The music decides the grammar. 'What should I stay.' 37. The thought addresses the individual, alone. 38. The penultimate words: 'It is done.' 39. Our tears are presumptive of reality: All future time. 40. The thought incinerates the cross, laying fear at our feet in ashes. 41. The meaning of the world is the logical aspect of God. 42. The thought ends the burdens of body by disenfranchising souls. 43. Philosophy follows Rommel, not allowing a foothold to fear. 44. The thought closes the book on the Bible. 45. Prison into paradise? Wait and see. 46. The thought is as serious as suffering, and equal to its claims. 47. It subdues, as Mozartean flutes, the ferocity of fear. 48. Power, impotence, are presumptions of value, antinomies of fear. 49. Metaphorically construed, the thought has a clearer claim than Christ as scepter and sense of worlds. 50. Existentialism: The illusion of responsible choice. 51. Russel's criterion: To feel at home in the world. And so to Dickenson's 'barefoot rank.' 52. The thought is the simpler alternative to suffering. 53. Newton, in the execution of legacy, was as vicious as Moses, the Buddha, Mohammed, Christ. In specificity and generality. 54. Morality measures fear, fear presumption. 55. Leadership: The dialectic of otherness, responsibility replacing vanity. 56. Much as music, the thought is centered is silence. 57. As Kierkegaardian Christianity, the thought is a radical cure. 58. Mythologically, only divinity can end it. 59. Wherein power? The white aura. 60. The primeval: Mass into line. 61. At long last, a sounder revelation has arrived. Enough to make vanity in vain. 62. That endless life does not solve the riddle of the world: Indeterminate life, justly understood, does. 63. 'My God . . . why hast thou forsaken me?': Christianity failed on the cross. 64. Among everything else, the thought is more powerful than chemical thermodynamics, more powerful than addiction. 65. The thought offers what? Absolute safety, unconditionally. 66. To whom would you deny the thought, from whom would you withhold its consolation, in the extremity of pain? Cancer victims? People, good people, burried alive in Turkey? Who? 67. The purport: Not to paint beauty, or argue others to death. To kill pain. 68. God or Devil: The thought is stronger. 69. Lucien Price, that 'Eternal life is not a duration, it is an intensity': The game is over, the intensity begun. 70. We see our former life for what it is: The paradigm of the camps. 71. The declaration of the thought: This, right here, right now, is Eden, not metaphorically, but in its full intensity, nor was it ever less. 72. The thought leads us back to Eden, all the way back. 73. Greater than Peru: The conquest of pain. 74. Phenomenology: The thought is existentialized in novelty. 75. Assimilated, everything burns new, glows with a primordial luster. 76. Stripped of misapprehension, here is Eden, Elysium, the eternal return. 77. Another summary. Hume implies: The future is indeterminate. Wittgenstein implies: The past is indeterminate. From which we can conclude: The present is indeterminate, sufficient to salvation. 78. Doubts that one's in heaven confirm that one's in hell. 79. The primary conjurer of doubt is pain. 80. The thought: What the race may not merit it unequivocally needs. 81. The Second Coming? The thought is stronger. 82. The Bible is not the word of God. The word of God is stronger. 83. To think science can influence philosophy is to understand neither, as made Russell a minor figure in his field. (Here, as everywhere, one serious mistake can do us in.) 84. Again: Everyone needs what no one deserves. And so the thought is available. 85. The thought is the strongest support for the God it supercedes. 86. How strong is the thought? It can end addiction without withdrawal. Including Browne's 'long habit of living.' 87. How many of our contemporaries are as cardinals, refusing to look through Galileo's telescope at the phases of Venus and the Jovian moons, to see that their theology is wrong? 88. More than logic, inductive or otherwise, science is aesthetics, as Newton, and Einstein, and Poincare, and Pascal all knew. And Keats poeticized. 89. How deep runs envy? Every physicist of rank would rather Einstein had not lived, than be, as they believe, consigned to his shadow. 90. Envy: In public regard, Michelangelo buried Donatello, and Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael could not bear each other's presence, assiduously avoiding contact in Florence and in Rome. 91. Hume's excoriation of causality: Every possible claim against the thought fell apart 2 centuries ago. 92. We cut through cant, now that solutions are in hand. 93. Ego implies a pervasive fear, that only the thought can resolve. 94. The significance, and power, of generality: The thought, in negativity, applies to everyone, everywhere. 95. For each action, a multiplicity of reasons, the harmonics of justification. 96. Healing makes a mockery of suffering. 97. The thought does more than heal, transfiguring life, including pain, beyond all recognition. 98. Es muss sein: The thought has more power than the Second Coming. 99. Life into Eden: What more could anyone want? 100. The thought and its power are to fulfill, not discredit, all that has come before.
