Dimensions of Existence: Being Human and Being a Thing

Dimensions of Existence

I mentioned, in a recent blog, the need to formulate the dimensions of our existence.  I want to pursue this mystery about 'being human' now.

The existence of two realities is weighing on me every day in every way.  Do you remember C.P. Snow's famous Two Cultures lecture (and later book)?  That Science v Humanities debate came and went because it was targeted at UK society of 1959: over half a century ago.  In any case, the sciences are now doing fine, in the UK and everywhere.  The PR machine has been cranked up and is doing a fantastic job. 

However, there is now a conflict as to which reality is to be scientifically investigated.  It's fundamental to understanding being human, and it is emerging as a battle for pre-eminence.  I call the two realities: Psychosocial Reality and Empirical Reality.

Creativity, Having Ideas and Gripping Reality.

I've been correcting some minor typos today on the Taxonomy's framework for creativity, second section just posted.  I wonder if it will connect with people?  That set off musings…

Another New Start…

Warren Kinston 31. January 2012 10:42

another new startMy New Year’s Resolution…I will try out a blog: for the website and available on the website.  It took a few weeks to get the blog set up but I'm glad this is going out before the end of January (just).

It is going to be about TOP, my Project to put THEE online.  That means it will be about THEE, the taxonomy, and my current interests, frustrations, observations, reflections &c.  I will float ideas and findings not yet quite ready for formal posting.

I will also blog about the practicalities and realities of the website.

Probably, I will blog about anything that I might want to tell you if we were chatting over a cup of coffee during my mid-morning break, or having a glass of beer at the end of a long day.

It won’t be regular as clockwork, but I expect to do something every couple of days.

This is an adventure.  I’m not sure how it will go—but that is the way of adventures.
