Thinkers’ Corner features theoretical essays on everything from politics to the paranormal, science to religion, crime to love, offering a different way of thinking best described as Rational Holism.

TRUTH?

We like to think of knowledge as truth, but if this is so why does it keep changing? Looking at the various knowledge systems throughout history it becomes clear that knowledge is really an intellectual reflection of how we see the universe. And from that knowledge comes control – hence, society also becomes a reflection of the universe.

FIRESIDE PHILOSOPHY
Mini-site on patterns specialists miss. Bedfellow to specialization, it offers ideas not truths, ‘cos there’s only one truth – there isn’t one. See Eye On the World for current affairs posts, and World History for how we got here.

QUESTIONS  SCIENCE  MORALITY  REALITY
LOVE  KNOWLEDGE  GRADUATES  ILLNESS
MADNESS  DEATH  RELIGION

All the philosophy in all the world is not worth the spilling of a drop of blood.

This is why a Godly society had a particular order, meaning and direction. The universe was ordered by God. Today it is very different. The universe is chaotic and the result of chance. Hence, order, meaning and direction seem to be disappearing.

HOW WE THINK

But there’s another element to knowledge. It decides how we think. A religious society is more holistic, looking at things as a whole. In our fragmented universe, this overview has gone, leaving us with a specialized form of knowledge.
This is why the Renaissance Man has disappeared. And whilst this may provide great benefits, I’m sure a holistic view alongside the specialized could help us towards a much more balanced view of knowledge. I wonder if the universe will change any time soon to allow this?
