Seeking the Path: The Way Up and the Way Down

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 1:36 PM

From the Aug. 30 post "A Brief Introduction to Ideas,"
an epigraph from Four Quartets

Another view of the way up and the way down:

"Of course, presentation of the effect in the cause
is exactly what blending the Buddhist Monk's
two journeys provides. The cause is the dynamics
of the two input journeys; the effect is the existence
of a location on the path they occupy at the same time
of day. In the blend, the location and the encounter are
presented directly as part of the causal dynamics of motion."

“Art is another way to try to exercise your imagination
at connecting incongruous things,” Anthony Doerr said.
“It’s a way to say, hey, reader, let’s work together and
practice and train our imagination to connect things
that you don’t readily think of as connected.”

"This is the purpose of being alive, to find someone
who sharpens the corners of the world for you and
allows you to peer into the souls of your fellow man!"
