Un Jour de Juillet

juillet.jpg

  Au milieu de journée où le ciel dégagé complétement Brillant de toutes ses forces, d’un estival chaud Le scintillement sur l’eau azure danse follement Les quelques vagues pataugent sans aucun mot Assis, les deux, sur ce bout de mur peu vieil Ses cheuveux blonds flottent au rythme de la bise Ses yeux bleus clairs…

Philosophy in a nutshell

philoheader.png

  Contemporary understanding of philosophy, from everyday wisdom to academic treatise, has grown over time as understanding of culture has for instance. Understanding the underlying principles of a statement leads to diversified response and, furthermore, to contentual contestation. Thereby, all groundbreaking philosophical ideas stem from discourse and criticism of previous views. Historical development of philosophy,…

Tree of knowledge

tree.jpg

  Nothing seems as arcane, academic and sophisticated as philosophy, the discipline of questioning truth and meaning, life and world, and not whatsoever else. Long is the tradition of the philosophizing man, since the youngest day of human thinking, many thoughts about us and our environment have grown, the seemingly more valid ones grew bigger…

“Gewiss sind das Sterne”

sterne.jpg

  Gewissheit, meiner grösster Feind. Und dabei sehnt es den Menschen stets nach Gewissheit. Wenn mir Gewissheit derart gegen den Magen geht, bin ich denn auch Mensch? Gewiss, ich bin mir selber auch zuwider, nur lernte ich zu scherzen. Aller Übel liegt Gewissheit zugrunde: Die Angst bei Kommendem, die Rache bei Verlorenem, die Hochmut bei…

Vis ad omnia: free energy

  First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win. ― Gandhi Energy means power. Power means comfort. Comfort means time. Time means fulfilment. We live in a time where meaningful use of energy seems limited by natural resources. The scarcity of natural resources asks for its equal…

Zara und L(i)eben

zarathustra.jpg

  Auszug aus Nietzsche: Biographie seines Denkens (2000) von Rüdiger Safranski. „Hat Nietzsche deshalb – weil er merkte, dass er das Entscheidende noch nicht richtig zur Sprache gebracht hat – Anfang 1885 noch ein viertes Zarathustra-Buch verfasst, obwohl er doch nach Beendigung des dritten Buches überzeugt war, mit seinem Zarathustra fertig zu sein? Doch auch…

Alphabet der Kuriosität

alphabet.jpg

  Die Mehrheit meiner Beiträge konzentrieren sich auf grundlegende, kuriosophische Anliegen: Die Farbenlehre und Kreativität als Lebensfreude und Schöpfungskraft, die konkurrenzlose Einheit von Mensch und Menschen, die Erziehung zur Maskenlosigkeit und Ehrlichkeit, sowie weitere Überzeugungen von weltlicher Schönheit. Ich hatte vor Kurzem die Gelegenheit eine Kinodarstellung von Alphabet mitzusehen. Es handelt sich dabei um ein…

Third World War: Already happening

wallstreet.jpg

  Only now, at very least when threatening our daily humble self, the extent of the global economic divergence strikes Western, particularly European, awareness. The West feels unconformable when things aren’t going to their plan. Recently, the in the meantime somewhat old-fashioned conflict between the West and East, between the Alliance and Eurasia is the…

  “Nichts ist aussen, nichts ist innen, denn was aussen ist, ist innen.” The Brothers Karamazov – The Downfall of Europe (1920) by Hermann Hesse, translated by Stephen Hudson.

Disturbing freedom

golden.jpg

  What often bothers me in everyday life is the normative barrier. One speaks of freedom of speech, and yet it has its limitations: Not every subject enjoys the same acceptance. Why is fundamental virtue such as curiosity, the desire to learn and to ask, punished with rejection and contempt? In a broader sense, why…

Von der kuriosophischen Symbolik

spacetree.jpg

  Der Wanderstock meiner Reise ist mittlerweile mit verschiedener Symbolik bestückt. Es handelt sich dabei um wiederkehrende rhetorische Metaphern, die sich durch meine Beiträge ziehen. Sie bilden sozusagen meinen inneren Willen, die, höchst persönlich, prophetische Überzeugung ab, und unterliegen somit meiner inhärenten, und auch namensgebenden, Neugier. Die folgende Abhandlung soll die kuriosophistische Symbolik zu entmystifizieren…
