Ego is a nominalist misnomer

1050. Ego is a nominalist misnomer.

1050a. We are will.

1050a1. Ego does not imply or encompass the higher self.

1050a2. Ego exists only in the imagination of psychology.

1050b. We are life.

1050c. We are freedom.

1050c1. We can forgive and seek forgiveness.

1050d.  Will and freedom enable us to choose the values we live by.

1050d1. Values range from the ugly and tawdry to the efficacious and beautiful.

1050e. As Albert Schweitzer said, “We are life that wills to live midst life that wills to live.”

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.

More Fathoming Facebook

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.
