The world is an enormous place. And yet there are as many ideas as there are thinkers who make attempt to grapple that enormity and fit it in the palm of their hand. Perhaps we can think about the world on the level of experience. Or better yet, on the level of intellectualization. Either way one can begin to look at this universe and realize that it is out there. Or one can realize that we are part of it. Ever turning. Being.  Just as it had been when it was created. The benefit of poetry or the pallet of philosophy? Saint Thomas Aquinas says, “Because philosophy arises from awe, a philosopher is bound in his way to be a lover of myths and poetic fables. Poets and philosophers are alike in being big with wonder.” And that’s how I role.
