About Modal Philosophy

According to it itself, those who master its precepts are likely to become wealthy.  My question is concerning motivations.

 

Why do I write?

–so that I can I appreciate the following silence better.

–to become more entwined in definitions.

–to outline the structures and separations I’ve unknowingly accepted, the ones that transform or even govern my every perception.  It is thus some of these mysterious definitions are founded.  What can be said it seems is quite certainly at least partially a lie.  How sad to think that:  I hope I’m wrong.  I hope that one does equal one, that the cracked egg is the same thing as the whole egg in the carton–because if it doesn’t then the whole edifice of Reality may come toppling down at any moment.  But I fear.  I fear greatly; for one sign of great danger is when the people see the images made of things rather than the things themselves, and that time has come.

 

Truth, that is, isn’t something we seek modernly.  We run from it.
