First of the Four
November 19th, 2011
Yeah, sometimes I like to make up words. (i.e. shugina, ...fek can't think of any others, just read previous posts and I'm sure you'll find some) Psychology and philosophy are the components of this concoction in case you were curious. While it incorporates the two though I would like to make it clear that it isn't a new idea but perhaps that by branding it under my terms I'll be able to further usher in this new era of innovation First Order stands for. Too much?
So what is the term all about and what does it cost me? Honestly the closest I could relate to it would be under the views of "first philosophy" as described by the philosopher Al-Kindi. Yes, it's a link because quite frankly I don't expect too many to search for him if it involves manually entering his name into a search engine and sifting through reputable sources for a snippet of something that'll probably be easily acertained through the convenience of context clues. Can you tell how far this post will be off the rails yet?
So, the study of wisdom isn't terribly new. One might very well classify it as philosophy itself. Though the term comes from the literal amalgam of "love" and "wisdom" as opposed to study--read orign of word. What mighty effect might such simple conventional connotations have upon the deliverance of such an epiphany you may inquire? (Alright, by this point I'm about ready to put a bullet in my head for having such unreasonable diarrhea of the keyboard)
Wisdom is more than knowledge. Wisdom can be seen as a sharp blade, perhaps even a katana. Honed for and immense amount of time, perfected, reformed, and eventually through unmistakably harsh labors, brought to fruition. Knowledge and experience, a sum that can and tends to far eclipse its parts. So then what of the study of it? Pscholosphy by definition then has to surpass the conventional compound and produce something far superior. Psycholosphy is the next step. Nothing as perverse as a synthetic wisdom but by all definitions a term that very well encompasses it.
Deconstruction of situation into the psychological elements at work then having their philosophical expression/progressions explored to an end that can produce an effect not dissimilar to clairvoyance. See, not simply the study of wisdom but its implications, deviations, derivatives, etc.. A way of thinking that can produce innovation--read innovators.
