Situationalism

Postby Fixed Cross » Sat Aug 19, 2017 12:18 am

James once mockingly proposed "situationalism" to Silhouettes "experientialism". It is in fact a far more sensible idea though, which can actually be directly tied into science, because Special Relativity is basically the conclusion that we need to take the situation into account if we want to measure the objects with respect to each other.

It gets more interesting as a prescriptive tool; before we study something, we establish it as a situation, which must include our planning to study it.

Every atom is a situation.

There are many such situations involved in this screen producing the situation of all our screens producing a model of this situation on it. Are there similarities between these situations? Yes - the atom has a core, and the situation of us looking at the atomic model has that model, and by implication the idea of the atom, as its core.

1.
a curve or geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole. Fractals are useful in modeling structures (such as eroded coastlines or snowflakes) in which similar patterns recur at progressively smaller scales, and in describing partly random or chaotic phenomena such as crystal growth, fluid turbulence, and galaxy formation.

I've been guided somewhat by William Blake's quote: "I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create". Just change 'system' for 'style'. - Bill

I just deleted what was here, a reply to anther thread.
Maybe I should have left it in place, as it was quite an apt demonstration of the ontology of situations, how manifestly evident they are as natures, beings.

Qhuack it, Ill quote it.

That in turn is a comment on the political situation in Europe, where a clearly superior society dominates a circumference of lesser, once-great societies.
That is to say that there are several smaller situations of lesser (substance/power/selfvalue/integrity/intelligence) attached as buffoons to a central situation to which the same laws do not apply.

The center of (larger) Germany itself is also very interesting, but a little bit too interesting for that situation to be touched on from this particular situation right here, on your fucking screen, and now in your brain, you dumb fuck.

Situationalism. Remember that shit.

Fuck Zen.

zen is a situation, though.
It is as a situation quite apt.
Unfuck it.

Zen is a man staring at a wall and liking it.
