It attains reality for us as it plays out in experience, sometimes faintly, sometimes with resonance, sometimes with shock as we note the disjunctures between truth and beauty that sully and disfigure both.

Keats is seen as a romantic but the very best romantics are realists as well.

Keats understands and therefore Triadic Philosophy understands that there is finally no index of reality that is not in essence a spectrum that goes from the very height that we can aspire to to the very depths of what we allow.

The sacrifice!

Truth may cry forth but when it lacks beauty it is not really truth.

Beauty may be emblazoned all about, but when it is false, when it lacks truth, it is dross.

Tell that to those who defend what we have had forever as a rightful ethic.

True ethics does not tolerate “the sacrifice” as the heart of Reality.

Sacrifice is beautiful only as it creates the basis for lives that are not crushed and macerated by the evil forces of the mindless and the selfish.

Nonviolence.
