Effort and struggle for serious people, towards the goals of fun and profit doing well by doing good.
Intersubjectivity is achievable at all only
by rounds of specific conjecture and refutation.
novel ideas and careful salient details depends upon the exacting negotiation
of reciprocal incomprehension, fallibility and inevitable misunderstanding, until such
incomprehension or misunderstanding is located, identified,
referenced, contexted and then bridged and finally resolved.
Creativity, as well, is the process of conjecture, of association, of finding or imagining connections even amid utter random chaos, in experience of external reality or by the process of inner life alike, and then by some means of filtration and choosing amid the results.
Investigation or reality testing, in particular, is the process of elimination via systematic doubt. Again, a process of pattern creation and recognition towards the negotiation of incomprehension, but in partnership with an indifferent universe.
To this end, as sapient social beings, our own meaningful exchange of disagreement is the practice of argument/debate/polemic, serving the purpose of filtration via the attack and defense of competing viable hypotheses in the hurly-burly process of Evolutionary Epistemology towards the survival of fitter ideas in the ongoing advance of better understanding.
Indeed, there will be very little on FoolQuest.com that will not, and of necessity, demand painstaking engagement in the negotiation of reciprocal incomprehension via critical thinking, following the logic and working out context, simply as the minimum real literacy requirement, which must go beyond merely parsing the most basic syntax. And this may be due, more than anything, to my own overreach.
Because, as always, the challenge of writing anything at all new, and nevertheless to really speak to the reader and hold their attention, includes adequate explanation without belaboring the obvious.
Indeed, FoolQuest.com is a showcase for a range of collaborative project proposals, conjecture and ambition ranging from the serious and challengingly difficult Entrepreneurial or grass roots Activist concepts to collaborative fiction writing just as an amusement. Hence, if participation in any at all such appeals to you, then, just perhaps, you may have found your way to the right place online.
