The philosophy of philosophy

Basically, the foundation of all philosophy is mankind’s innate curiosity to gain an insight into his remote past, to establish the innate purpose of life and to attempt to create models for the future of mankind resulting from a keen study of the past and the present. However, the depth and quality of any philosophy would depend on the coherence of the ideas presented as functions of the pellucidity of the mind of the thinker in question and his subsequent Enlightenment – a peculiar talent to tap into the Superconscious that is the primordial source of all intellectual and divine knowledge.

Great philosophers become immortalized by the virtue of their original and valuable expositions that they make. As such, their ideas are usually developed in great detail and explored in great depth thanks to their ability to tap the quietude of the innate Awareness where all wisdom originates since that is the best observer of all around us.

The most enlightened philosophers make invaluable contribution to the current and future civilizations in terms of understanding the more elegant aspects of life. This becomes possible due to their innate coherence and fecundity which becomes evident every time they set their minds on a new idea. This reminds me of the philosopher’s stone and its symbolical meaning in the quest for supreme Enlightenment. It is a concept very close in demeanor with what am pointing to here.

The work of an Awakened philosopher has a certain elusive profound unity and as such it’s geared towards developing a primary intuition – philosophical intuition.

The architecture of philosophy

The best way to approach philosophical works is to penetrate to the very heart of the corpus – that is, to take a comfortable seat in the philosopher’s mind. This way, such a great work goes under a subtle transformation where the coherence and importance of all it elements become suddenly perceptible with a natural-like ease.

With such an approach replete in skillful means, everything converges to a single point, to which one begins to feel drawn closer and closer to the true intended meaning of the work. There is no human knowledge or philosophy that has ever come from a different universe since we are all portions of the same divinity. The problem is that we see other people as exclusively separate from our persons and that way we quickly disparage their ideas without giving them a second glance.

  1. …a consistency proof for [any] system … can be carried out only by means of modes of inference that are not formalized in the system … itself.
    Kurt Gödel… Therefore one can adopt a philosophy like a chosen child as a choice, just as others can adopt their own children.

  2. Man, this was tough to read. I couldn’t understand what you were getting at. For example,

    “However, the depth and quality of any philosophy would depend on the coherence of the ideas presented as functions of the pellucidity of the mind of the thinker in question and his subsequent Enlightenment – a peculiar talent to tap into the Superconscious that is the primordial source of all intellectual and divine knowledge.”

    I am someone you’d want to write for, as I have been reading philosophy since I was 8years old; I must say, this is more obscure than the critique of pure reason.

    Don’t get me wrong, you’re a good writer; however, you’re writing in academse, as Steven Pinker calls it. I read the entire thing twice, and I still do not see how you outlined a philosophy of philosophy.

    cheers!

  3. Hahaha! Exactly, that’s the point. My interest is not philosophy at all, but to kill it completely and retain the essence of enlightenment. I have a question for you: what do you think was supposed to be the climax of all western philosophy? Where or to what was it all supposed to lead?

    Thanks for your comment and sincerity. My devotion is not for philosophy or popular logic but rather the essence of Nirvana and spiritual awakening.

  4. I presume you mean the end goal of western philosophy? I don’t think there is an end goal. Philosophy, as I understand it, is the love of knowledge. Not once have I picked up a book and said, “this book will reign authority over its subject, and all who disagree are wrong; for this book is infallible”. In general, I pick up a book to develop new ways of thinking about something in the world.

    For example, I have recently been reading information theory literature, and it made me realize that there are plenty of parallels between neuroscience and economics.

    Quite honestly, philosophy is just fun.

    And with that said, I think philosophy and enlightenment can be friends. I’ve read Osho, Confucius, Lao Tzu, and Alan Watts. From these thinkers, I concluded that enlightenment is doing what’s fun. Not planning to have fun in the future, but having fun now. (I don’t buy into the metaphysical claims about nothingness, and for good reason).

  5. Favouritism causes such unfair heartache in children that I can’t agree with you.
    I don’t like the idea of causing children to have a hidden Negative win/lose agenda. It can cause Psychotic self preservation and lack of empathy, and the great Love they have to give stays trapped inside their ACHING HEART (SOUL).
    Encourageing each unique child to blossom makes sense to me, so, in the future, a child might ask a Teacher, ”what does favouritism mean’? amongst other things, and become an understanding Parent and a great Teacher,

  6. I do agree with much of what you were saying in the article. I have recently began thinking in this way and going that path, and in fact I have even written on here a bit about it. I think more people need to know about this concept of deeper thinking.

  7. To kill philosophy you would destroy enlightenment. Don’t you need logic and understanding in order for you to achieve nirvana? The basic fundamentals of philosophy is to understand the nature of knowledge, reality and existence.
