QUOTES AND APHORISMS
AESTHETICS (the reality knew through our senses)
Apparent truth. Appearance and existence are one and the same, for that which
exists, appears. Therefore, in so far as it appears, appearance and truth coincide.
Of prophesy. Isn't a prophet someone who, in every field of knowledge, is able with more
vision to penetrate the law that governs becoming? Ken Hunter
Of becoming. In becoming being passes from potentiality (possibility) to reality by
realizing itself in the modes or laws of existence. A game, because it is in playing that
potentiality is expressed, its only objective being to "re-create" itself.
Apparent truth. Error does not exist except as
partial truth: bound by the physiognomic capacity of the observer.
Mental pathology. The "beyond" and the
spirit could only come about in the land of mirages, thus always remaining connected: to
thirst, optical illusions, physiological imbalances. Ken Hunter
Potentiality and actuality. Nought in potentiality is non-being* in actuality. *(in
italian: non-essere = not to be and/or non being) Ken Hunter
Scientific errors. The error of science is not so
much in the laws discovered, as in the lack of direction of those who apply them: in their
own failure to see the whole in each of its own parts. Ken Hunter
Points of view. Subjectivity is not so much an error as an inferior point of view.
Spectroscopy of knowledge. Modern astronomy is undoubtedly glaring proof: knowledge is
light, and from the study of it knowledge comes to us. Ken Hunter
Vicious circle. "... and just thinking about his own thought ..." a dog began
one day chasing his own tail. Ken Hunter
Transcendental aesthetics. From the magic of astrology to the science of astronomy: man
has read, and still reads the cosmos, looking to unlock the mystery of his own pre-scribed
fate. Ken Hunter
Retroactivity. If the law of creation did not re-create itself, could we non the less call
it by that name? Ken Hunter
The part and the whole. Each part, by realizing its own essence, plays its own part in
realizing the whole. Ken Hunter
Multiverse. The "beyond" is in fact another cosmic world: upon some lost planet
light years away from our trivial place. Ken Hunter
Transcendental aesthetics. Matter is merely the name chosen by Man for the definition of
an aesthetically ordered (transcendental idea) of qualities perceptible to the human
senses: the principal mental category of practical life. Ken Hunter
Historical perspectives. Time, which Man perceives as being linear in the brief span of
time available to him, could very well be circular. Ken Hunter
On participation. The whole is one, yet each
participates in it in his own way. Ken Hunter
Final revelations. Once he has unveiled all the paradoxical mysteries of the Cosmos, Man
will reveal the essence of his own mysterious fate. Ken Hunter
Historical perspectives. Just as curved space seems to Man to be flat, in the same way the
cosmic law seems to us, in a short span of time, to be rational, too.
Centering the shapeless. Since the void does not exist: can the universe display any form?
That's why its centre is consequently at every point of its own space.
Apparent truth. Just as the object is an apparition, so too is the knowledge appearing
from it. Ken Hunter
On divinity. What can be more divine* than the stars
and the sun? Yet they too become, are born and will pass. * (in italian: divine = shining,
from latin) Ken Hunter
Philosophical flaws. Any philosophy that is not able to explain the most insignificant or
repellent things in life, too, is in itself a trick. Ken Hunter
Paradoxical truth. The paradox is paradoxical only
for the old truth that it replaces. Ken Hunter
The paradox. "The knowledge that we do not
know". The only hypothetical knowledge granted to Man.
Re-vealing. Is it surprising that to unveil it is
necessary to re-veal*? * (in italian: s-vela = un-veil; ri-vela = re-veal = re-veil)
Being and becoming. Can man, the biproduct of a
cosmic cloud, be something more substancial than the cloud itself ? Ken Hunter
PSYCHOSOPHY ( psychology applied to philosophy )
Psychosophy. To explain the world by redoubling it is to redouble the difficulties; to
exchange the rising tension of life, the idea of future being, in order not to be "in
