Limits of The Binary

Triadic thinking is hardly nes. Both Kant and Hegel thought in threes. But Charles Sanders Peirce is spent almost his entire life elaborating on firsts, seconds and thirds. And I believe his work will come to fruition in the millenium now unfolding, moving us beyond what might be called the binary culture.

The posts below may help stimulate thought on the subject.

When Will a Binary Film Think in Threes?

When Will A Binary Film Think in Threes? We will know the age of Peirce has dawned when binary films and binary living gives way to thinking based on threes.


If there Was No More War

Still old men send young to do their ill-conceived bidding. Thought still refuses to step past the binary. Liquid society seems to stifle coherent movement. The music of gadgets is games then silence.Hell remains mostly concealed until it touches us.

Charity and Capitalism

The two posts below get to a favorite topic. The link between charity and capitalism. Thought starters mainly.

Naked Charity

Naked Charity. Charity (Philanthropy) and Capitalism Are A Lethal Brew Creating Global Triage, Pity-Based Values and Hypocrisy-Based Morality. The Greg Mortenson story is just the same old-same old that persists till eyes are opened


After Green – Moribund Capitalists

An After Green thought-starter. United States capitalism is largely unresponsive to the imperative to move to a post-oil, post-automobile economy.

Loving Lady Gaga and Other Posts

Earnest and centered and disciplined are the first three adjectives that pop into my mind as I consider a 25-year-old who strikes me as wise beyond her years. I do not believe in life stages and feel our entire world is escaping the straitjackets of past definitions. I think the good Lady understands this and simply does what anyone else in synch with unfolding reality does.

Here are the very first posts I did relating to this emerging phenomenon.

More Lady Gaga Posts

Lady Gaga is as much a new phenomenon as Facebook. And the zeitgeist is not that different between the two. Both deal with the changing face of community in today’s world. We are moving toward entirely new definitions that move from blood and ethnicity toward common values and aesthetics.

Here is a small collection of posts I’ve done over the last several months regarding Lady Gaga.

Mildred Purse subjects Charlie Sheen to the four rhetorical anchors of most poetry.

Mildred has a massive fund of knowledge which she willingly shares with all who will listen. She shuns celebrity and sees Lady Gaga as her channel for proper celebrity behavior. She says look beneath the surface and you will find a person who thinks.

And here are a selection of takes on the good lady that suggest the nature and scope of her impact.

To which I say, Bon Voyage!

Three Analytical Mel Gibson Posts and a Note on His Current Film

Mel Gibson delivers melancholy performance in ‘The Beaver’: “Mel Gibson’s private life hangs like a specter over the early scenes in ‘The Beaver.’
But rather quickly, the story of a deeply depressed husband, father and businessman tips the scales, and you begin seeing troubled Walter Black instead of troubled Mel Gibson.”
