Do You See What I See (in this rock)?

Take a moment to look at this picture I took of a rock from this cliff face on the St. Croix River. When we gaze upon the natural beauty of our world, we often see more than is actually there. Concentrate your visual perception and focus on the image below. Allow your imagination to carve a path in new directions. I let my mind wander as it attended to this picture and discovered a number of fascinating images within this rock. I’ve listed a few of my findings in the polls below the picture. Cast your vote to see if other readers encountered the same pictures within the picture that you spy with (or without) your mind’s eye.

The Pursuit of Self-Knowledge

He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.

These wise enlightened words come from the philosopher/author Lao Tzu (aka Laozi). I always strive to know myself, but I’m not sure if charging full steam ahead is the best path. Maybe it involves taking multiple paths, simultaneously, from different directions. I mean this figuratively, of course. As one moves through life, I believe a person should constantly consider perspectives from as many angles as possible. I assume that this awareness of the world, other than oneself, ties in directly with one’s self-knowledge and the ability of one’s senses to perceive. My experience as a being stems from my interaction with my environment, so understanding myself without considering these factors is impossible. Well, that’s how I see things from my perspective. In the pursuit of self-knowledge I face a dilemma: the truths which I experience can never fully be known to be true; thus, leaving me in a state of conditional cognition.

How do I know that what I know about myself is true?

Slang Flashcards: Set 2

Yo, dawgs! What up? If you’ve been chillin’ on conditional condition before, you probably know about the dope slang flashcards page (all props go to Knock Knock). Aiight, I’ve got quite a stash of these cards in the crib and thought that there’s no need to keep these on the D.L., so I’ve decided to share a few more with you from time to time. Why would I front, when I can bring it? Here’s set 2 (click a pic to see a close-up), but there’s more crunk ones to come down the line. Holla at me if you think these are all that. Peace!

Mourning the Loss of My Domain Name

It’s been over a year since I’ve posted anything. In the summer of 2010, I went a period of time without home access to the Internet and made little to no effort to get online. Big mistake! As a result of my blatant lack of respect for keeping up to date on my electronic communications I missed the opportunity to renew ownership of my blog domain name. Ouch!
