The Only Organic Alternative to Consumerism

The Only Organic Alternative to Consumerism

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

- Sir Francis Bacon (1561–1626)

Round and Round We Go — What we Will Read Only My Schema Will Tell

The Only Organic Alternative to Consumerism

Inspired by Sir Francis Bacon (1561–1626)’s quote, “Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.” The titled responsion is making me hunger towards something better. What are your thoughts?

This objective approach to epistemology is informing and part of an ever expanding a priori truth; a.k.a. our individual yet collective pursuit of excellence. Consumption has killed entire societies because of an unknown vector [disease] but this is a matter of labeling what we don’t know. Now we know better. No better is the negation of knowledge, a skeptic’s fatal flaw, when inspiration and creativity are at odds, no prior experience correlate future outcomes. And yet we prevail. Thus far!

Hindsight Introspection

Inspired by Galileo Galilei (1564–1642)’s quote, “All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them”. The titled responsion is clairvoyent yet instructive.

Seek and ye shall find. Begin with a question that hasn’t been answered, and yes there are still many of those out there. My recommendation would be to question something with a consequence of utility. Sorting it all out is the aesthetic claim, function and work that you have in front of you. What are you waiting for?

A Sustainable Life Worth Living

Inspired by Thomas Paine (1737–1809)’s quote, “Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death”. The titled responsion is a marriage of sorts, a union with your principles.

It feels like we’re in the middle of a paradigm shift, moving out of a consumptive economy into a sustainable economy where the environment is taken into account when we “economize” the movement of people and the value that we produce. A valence of sorts towards biodiversity doesn’t have to be oppressive. As Socrates taught us almost 2,500 years ago, an individual’s life is about healing and preparing for death is a lifelong pursuit. Happiness is a byproduct, not a product you buy!
