The Transparent Becoming of World and Quantum Field Brain Dynamics – an initial look at the work of Gordon G. Globus

The ontology of metaphysics is so embedded in the way we think, so coiled within the very language that we must use, so protected, that we cannot get at it by a frontal approach. It is necessary to dwell in an author’s work to grasp the underlying ontological principles at work. In the between-two of… Continue reading The Transparent Becoming of World and Quantum Field Brain Dynamics – an initial look at the work of Gordon G. Globus

Agential Realism

“Moving away from the representationalist trap of geometrical optics, I shift the focus to physical optics, to questions of diffraction rather than reflection.” “What often appears as separate entities (and separate sets of concerns) with sharp edges does not actually entail a relation of absolute exteriority at all. Like the diffraction patterns illuminating the indefinite… Continue reading Agential Realism

A Few Statements To Think On

Consider the possibility that the following quotes, in their essential meaning, all say the same, and what that implies: “Christ is fully human and fully divine.” – Council of Trent “Whenever two or more of you gather in the name of love, I am already with you.” – Jesus, in the Gospels “If Jesus were… Continue reading A Few Statements To Think On

An Example of Science’s Failure at Philosophy

… Stephen Hawking goes wrong when, at the very beginning of his best-seller The Grand Design, he triumphantly proclaims that “philosophy is dead.”  With the latest advances in quantum physics and cosmology (M-theory), he claims, so-called experimental metaphysics has reached its apogee. Upon a closer look, of course, we soon discover that we are not quite… Continue reading An Example of Science’s Failure at Philosophy

The Origin of Human Evil: Why Belief is the Problem

The Origin of Human Evil Leaving aside natural evil, the evil of interest is that produced by the Self as part of its self-determination.  Having looked at the history of the ontology of evil, the common theme has to do with self-will.  However precisely how self-will can and does do evil, sometimes even unintentionally, is… Continue reading The Origin of Human Evil: Why Belief is the Problem

The Problem with Zizek’s Defense of the Cartesian Subject

“Perhaps Zizek’s most radical challenge to accepted theoretical opinion is his defense of the modern, Cartesian subject. Zizek knowingly and polemically positions his writings against virtually all other contemporary theorists, with the significant exception of Alain Badiou. But for Zizek, the Cartesian subject is not reducible to the fully self assured “master and possessor of… Continue reading The Problem with Zizek’s Defense of the Cartesian Subject
