an individual pluralism of conceptual interests



Inevitably, aspirations become plural. The singularity of a life may have no comprehensive conception (to observers or readers), but obviously one’s life is a singularity.

But finding a comprehensive comprehension of my conceptual interests is less interesting to me, in the near term, than journeying on, which shared journaling expresses.

posting as themic point



Why not ‘themic’ instead of ‘thematic’?

I’ll make—I’m making—posts which are prospective sites (focal points) for under-elaborated conceptions (or unelaborated concepts) which will gain elaboration relative to later discussions elsewhere which use the conception and reference its focal point.

on “belief”



placeholder for upcoming development


Aug. 26

But my sense of “upcoming” three days ago got pushed into the future. Belief is apposite (funny word, to my ear) for thinking about confidence in the credibility of one’s stances prior to another person’s skepticism.
A position implies validity implicature that a positioner should feel confident about, before offering the position.

what’s ‘good’



It promises a better way, relative to other options. It’s an appellant metonym for the way to go.

Historically, the term tropes a concept of appropriateness: fitting, uniting—or fit uniting, fitting unitedness?—cohering?

Its vast range of meaning (52 sub-definitions)—its aura-tic nebulosity
(so dependent on context of use)—is basically and merely twofold:

1: attributive value: favoring, fitting, appealing; being sufficient, valid, or satisfactory

2: exemplary value: being admirable, respectable, or capable.

The better way orients (like a pole star) events of appropriation.

My several discussions of this (typically here—but also prospected in earlier years more casually) haven’t mentioned that interesting etymological and lexical character of ‘good’. So, here you have it,
brief and non-tedious.

ensouled worldliness of a singularity


This is part 14 of “soul of Self interest

High flourishing prospects the scalarity of engaged aspiration, beyond an appeal of exemplary humanity, beyond passed heuristics of some wholly flourishing interplay with pretentions of constellating proteany. Radiant gravity of futural Appeal is the point.
