Congratulations. You're officially a square.
It's alright though. Somebody out there is bound to pick up what I'm puttin' down.
Are you talkin' to me, huh? Are you talkin' to me?
If so, I'm too stupid to understand.
Some kind of zen-koan maybe?
Or "square" as the opposite of "hip" like in 60's lingo?
Not me! Are you stoned or something?
If you classify me as the geometric form square, I bet you have some trouble of explaining that paradigm even to yourself not to mention communicating that to others.
I don´t mean anything like somebody is a square if somebody says that when meaning a regular square.
Or maybe you have a coherent world view there, so please feel free to use it. I don't have to.
It is the language yes. But more than language.
For example where were the individual colors before monkeys started to see them in order not to eat raw fruit?
Nowhere. The evolutionary need to split wavelengts to colors created the colors. (and even the thing wavelenght is a modern way to isolate, split or should I say divide the world)
However, if you and I rode a time machine to where color vision had not yeat been evolved, or if we just talk about that time, sure there is colors. We carry our own way to split or divide the world. But it is us, not an universal truth. Both are true. There were colors and the were no colors.
I bet intelligent animals like whales in their marine environment have a totally different way of dividing the world than us. And their bits of the world are just as true than ours. Many truths, but only one set of facts from each viewpoint or question.
You can ask nonsense questions though. Western philosophy went to Hell when Socrates and Plato dreamed that there was only one ontological truth somewhere out there. What would be the instrument to measure such a thing? It ain't like asking a real question like what is the temperature of the Sun. There is no way to measure, to get an answer to that philosophical bogus question, so that One Truth does not exist.
But Western philosophy became sort of theology searching for that "one truth". As disgusting as religion and justification for people to be controlled by some "wise men" or know-it-all dictatorships.
To piss people of Im going to quote JESUS
but from the Gospel of Thomas.
I don´t know if Jesus actually said that, but it sure sounds like zen. With no moral or otherwordly dogma in there like in the Gospel versions of the same incident.
.(1) Jesus saw infants being suckled.
(2) He said to his disciples:
"These little ones being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom."
(3) They said to him: "Then will we enter the kingdom as little ones?"
(4) Jesus said to them: "When you make the two into one,
and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside
and the above like the below –
(5) that is, to make the male and the female into a single one,
so that the male will not be male and the female will not be female –
(6) and when you make eyes instead of an eye
and a hand instead of a hand and a foot instead of a foot,
an image instead of an image, (7) then you will enter [the kingdom]."
