on the futility of grand theory part ii

There is a universal truth out there, somewhere, but we've only managed to grab slivers of it, and we (humanity) all have different names for it. The problem is that each conceptual empire wishes to lay claim to "the truth" by squashing others in their quest for hegemony.

These concepts are diversionary—they seek to remove us from this moment where the real can be found and experienced.

ac patriot noted that such a denial of grand theory demonstrates a lack of cerebral sentience and intellectual curiosity on the part of the individual who chooses not to ask why. Maybe a refusal to ask why Is an affront to science. But some scientists can be just as dogmatic in their approach to the world as religious fundamentalists. Chill out already...

Wisdom is not dependent on knowledge and facts. Neither science nor religious dogma can tackle and express the complexities of the human heart. But music, art, and poetry can...

to sum it up I believe there is a truth, just not the truth.

Get it?


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
