The Way of …

DOThe symbol is a syllable having the English pronunciation ‘DO’ meaning ‘The Way Of’ more commonly found in the Hanggul script. Practitioners are basically taught by guides or teachers who by years of learning have mastered the art. Success or enlightenement is said to be achieved when the mind and body join into one, where form are no longer form but part of the spirit that move body. One mind and body is Zen.

But, what does that symbol have to do with this blog? Am I supposed to reveal the mastery of a certain art? Certainly not…for I am no master.

AristotleWestern thought, originally were pretty much Aristotelian. So obvious that, the Greek civilization made a huge impression in the formation of western thought and it still considered a major influence as of today. Grammar and empiricism played a crucial part of the western thought. Intelligence bounded not by Zen but by connection of symbols with other symbols, forming a vast network of collections supported by empiricism.

Along the line, Baconianism crept-in to supplant the old structure paving the way to a new kind of thinking. Baconianism is now the major driving force of everything I see here, now.

Where will it go next? And what kind of new thinking will this generation rally up to?

Maybe this is it?
