The above is a sampling from the work in progress Triadic Philosophy, a Kindle book. I have set the price at $9.99 and it will not change although the book will grow substantially. As it does, Kindle users will be able to download the latest version (by managing their Kindle). This is an alternative mode of expressing thought and it could only occur in the context of cyber-space. This is a book that is literally being played out on Twitter. While it is meant to strike at the heart of dualistic philosophy, it is also meant to be a clear and useful iteration of thinking that is universal in relevance. Triadic Philosophy will not be able, as it grows, to be relegated to any group or category or school of thought whatsoever. We are beyond that. You can sample more of Triadic Philosophy and purchase or borrow the book (if a Kindle Prime member) by clicking the image below.

Not everything about Facebook comes up roses. Here are a few posts that suggest what gives me pause about the entity.
More fathoming of Facebook. I doubt that even with the film about Facebook we are even close to understanding what might lie at the root of Facebook’s power. That rootage lies in the understanding of what creates revolutions. I do not claim to have made this link in any serious way. But my intuition is that it has to do with the role of the middle class in generating democratic revolutions and with Facebook’s ethos in that respect. It would be a supreme irony in today’s killing the middle class environment if the ultimate power in the world was, er, bourgeois power. Or should I say bourgeois conversion with a nod to Leadbelly.
Selected from of recent posts and slideshows about the social network.
In general Facebook is as significant on the Web as any named entity. And the Web is on its way to becoming the way we create our world.
Twitter Tip: Paring Down Your Following List
Tweepi is presently the only utility I use to manage my Twitter activity. You can pare down the number of folk you follow according to multiple criteria. Reducing the number of people you follow is a choice, not a necessity. Eliminating persons you follow who do not follow you back is likewise a choice.
I value followers who retweet or reply to my tweets. I list these as Folk you should follow. I use these lists to find salient tweets to pass on. You can find these lists at https://twitter.com/stephencrose
