As this site takes form as a body of work, it's important to take some time to think about how we want to organize it and where we can look for things in a cohesive manner. While ideally, we would like to be able to bring something of direct value to a large number of people, we have to stay focused on the things that we think bring the most impact initially. As this body of work grows, we can start to expand on that and start to create works which have more direct impact on a larger group of people.
The home page gives a brief description of all the individual sections, however it doesn't talk about the rationale behind the layout of these sections.
In regards to philosophy, we have a few chief concerns. The primary is an analysis of how we understand the world. This includes both a theory of understanding of how human belief behaves and also an analysis of what exactly is the best understanding of our place in the universe based on our current understanding of the world. We will delve into the ideas of how we develop wisdom and understanding through empirical evidence and statistical proof as we are incapable of ascertaining absolute truth. To truly get an understanding of life and humanity, we need to traverse all the different disciplines of study as they each exist to explain a small part of our reality. And in doing so, we will look at some of the current philosophical systems and investigate their purpose and the reason that they came to be.
The next concern is an the application of this perspective on the world and how it can be applicable to our own lives in how we approach situations and tackle challenges. We will talk about it means to be a good human and what we are called to do. We will look at what it means to lead and how we can take up a bigger role in the world. There are many hazards in that journey for which we must have discretion. We will discuss some of the major themes of these hazards and how to approach them.
The last major concern is of the systems that we build. This is the shape of the larger organism which we are a part of. While the organism of which we are a part of may seem colossal and unalterable to each of us individually, together we form the and collectively control the movement of this organism. We have to take a step back in order to see the collective behavior of these larger organisms and understand how we should architect its future.
While it's tantamount to find the underlying principals which guide us forward, often times it is compelling when we have concrete examples of how these ideas can be applied to the events shaping our world, to see these events through a lens with a longer perspective than the majority of media which is available to us. That's what the why we are writing the editorials.
While the mechanisms which govern individual action are relatively well developed, the mechanisms which govern larger organisms including companies and sovereignties are still in a state of flux. Individually, we do all have challenges which we need to overcome in our process of growth, but much of the path has been laid out. Unfortunately, that doesn't necessarily make following that path easy as the complexities of these larger organisms often create longer term stresses in individual groups of people. This exists in both the choices available to them and the expectations of different groups of people. Certain ideas and concepts put different groups at odds which stunt advancement and results in competition of a limited pool of resources instead of working to either expand that pool or increase the efficiency of utilization of these resources.
The projects begin with toy projects but lay the foundational groundwork for technologies which need to be advanced in order to address the deficiencies in contemporary organizations. Most of the documents capture the current state of publically available information on different systems and talks about overarching goals and concepts.
There is a plethora of knowledge in the world. There are certain foundational concepts which we need to understand and digest in order to tie seeming disparate knowledge and experiences together. Walking from the everyday experiences which we all have encounted in our journey as human beings, we walk up the chain of abstraction in order to understand how these abstract concepts tie everything together and can be utilized to explain different parts of the world.
