Pythagoras said that this world was like a stage,
Whereon many play their parts; the lookers-on, the sage
Philosophers are, saith he, whose part is to learn
The manners of all nations, and the good from the bad to discern
.Damon and Pythias (written in 1564, published in 1571).
Well, I have consciously chosen to approach these posts tangentially, rather than say, an overt pedagogical methodology or some gestalt type process, in order to round the squared so-to-speak.
As you may or may not be aware; a rolling stone gathers no moss (tips hat to Alan Watt), and so, even though these ‘cryptic’ posts are presented in a visual koan style, it is very much my desire that the reader come to their own conclusions and general understanding of the content based upon the experience and what they themselves bring to the table.
I will say however, that I did manage to watch the show presented in the clip this morning, and subsequently felt the need to provide an appropriate image of a grand chessboard within the context of one of its historical antecedents.
