Meditations #4

But it may be said, perhaps, that, although the senses occasionally mislead us respecting minute objects, and such as are so far removed from us as to be beyond the reach of close observation, there are yet many other of their informations (presentations), of the truth of which it is manifestly impossible to doubt; as for example, that I am in this place, seated by the fire, clothed in a winter dressing gown, that I hold in my hands this piece of paper, with other intimations of the same nature.

Militant Optimism is not a "Good" Idea

Seriously, I do not know how many times, and how many ways I will write and rewrite this essay to try to make the point clear. Somebody has to pay for you to be optimistic. People just do not understand the indirect consequences of their actions. As long as their optimism seems to keep them happy, that is as far as they see. They cannot understand when this optimism gathers in group-think to support the sacred gem, it demands indirectly a hardcore exclusion.

My Personal Motives and Development

There is many dimensions to these essays I am writing. There are a string of essays that must necessarily be written, and they are essays articulating my motives. Naturally I have been focused on what men "ought" to do, and actually I am articulating my own crystalline structure simultaneously. When I speak about the "ought" for men, I am speaking about myself also, as power is not above the law. What is it that I hope to achieve? And finally, realistically, what is it that I think will happen?

On the Construction of Superior Minds

I felt it necessary to write this essay, because as I read the giant minds of the past, I realize that they do not say things simply enough sometimes. At the rate, which we are growing intellectually today, they certainly do not necessarily say things with the right kind of punch, and brevity that we are accustomed to.Here are some ideas about how I constructed the system I use now to understand the world and to talk about why these steps were necessary to understanding that which is most important, the future synthesis of humanity.

All things are infinite in number and smallness

All things were together, infinite both in number and in smallness; for the small also was infinite. And when they were all together, nothing was clear and distinct because of their smallness; for air and aether comprehended all things, both being infinite; for these are present in everything, and are greatest both as to number and as to greatness.

Euthydemus

Translated by Benjamin Jowett

Crito. Who was the person, Socrates, with whom you were talking yesterday at the Lyceum? There was such a crowd around you that I could not get within hearing, but I caught a sight of him over their heads, and I made out, as I thought, that he was a stranger with whom you were talking: who was he?

Socrates. There were two, Crito; which of them do you mean?
