A  Christmas  Ornament  for  Amy  Adams —

Dark Fields*

A date in the previous post suggests a flashback to March 11, 2014,
and a post on that date titled "Dark Fields of the Republic"—

This uncredited translation of Plato is, Google Books tells us,
by “Francis MacDonald Cornfield.”  The name is an error,
but the error is illuminating —

Signs Movie Stills: Mel Gibson, Joaquin Phoenix, Patricia Kalember, M. Night Shyamalan

* See posts mentioning the novel with that title, republished as Limitless.

Limitless*

Filed under: General — m759 @ 11:00 AM

A phrase in the news recently,

"la métaphysique de l'illimité ,"

suggests a search for related material.

Found: The discussion of the metaphysics of the limitless
in Chapter Two, "The Quest: Philebus ," of Plato and the Good:
Illuminating the Darkling Vision
 
, by Rosemary Desjardins.

See, too, the Log24 post Ayn Sof  of January 7, 2011,
and A Document in Madness :

* The title is from the 2011 film version of
   the 2001 novel The Dark Fields .

A Dark and Stormy May 29th

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:13 PM

He had come a long way to this blue lawn,
and his dream must have seemed so close
that he could hardly fail to grasp it.
He did not know that it was already behind him,
somewhere back in that vast obscurity
beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic
rolled on under the night.

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

— Epigraph to Limitless: A Novel , by Alan Glynn

Glynn's novel was originally published in 2002 under the title
The Dark Fields

Compare and contrast —

Stephen King, 'IT,' plane, dark fields, school, bell, page 168, May 29

Stephen King's IT  was first published by Viking in 1986.

See as well the May 29th date mentioned by King.

Dark Fields
of the Republic

Today’s birthday: Ken Burns

Charley Reese on the republic:

“The republic died at Appomattox, and it’s been empire ever since.”

Charley Reese on Lincoln:

“Washington and Jefferson created the republic; Lincoln destroyed it.”

In closing…

A link in memory of Donald G. Higman, dead on Feb. 13, 2006, the day after Lincoln’s birthday:
