Thoasp: Thoughts of an Aspirationist

Thoasp sounds a little strange, huh? Good – that means it’s different than what we’re used to reading. The purpose of this blog is to share and expand on the possibilities stemming from personal direction, done by originating and inspiring thought. To start off, I’ll be clear about this post. To inspire requires a two…

Thought

First, A statement by Michael Scriven & Richard Paul, presented at the 8th Annual International Conference on Critical Thinking and Education Reform, Summer 1987. source Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing,…

Dream

Have you ever thought about how it feels to swim in emerald stardust? It’s so interesting that Paul Hardcastle created a song about it. How about the taste? The way it feels to breathe in the stardust, while swimming in the air… Did you know you can swim in the air in your imagination? Have…

Meta Ignorance

What a concept! Just considering it might send some off into the cosmic seas of laughter. To move beyond the concept of ignorance in relation to it – beyond ignorance might be knowledge, but it might also be more ignorance! I’m sure it depends on the purpose of acknowledging what is beyond ignorance, if anything…

Mind Feed

Every day, every living being consumes substance in order to retain life. Some choose to take care with the feed that we consume on a daily basis. Those little bits really add up – so much so that raw data on something such as obesity predicts the future (page 8) much, much farther than the…

A Demonstration for You!

It’s a wonderful thing to demonstrate truth, so how would the world recognize your truth if you don’t educate them by demonstrating it? While anything universal can be done through you, such as operating a car, or starting and stopping a fire, your truth may only be expressed through you – all others appear to…

Clear Waters

What does an untroubled water look like, anyway? Maybe it’s clear of debris, or maybe of sources of erosion regardless of the levels of debris? Can it take part in the weather cycle without losing all of its’ water? The human definition of clarity – to be clear. How would it differ from an AI’s…

Noise!

There are surprisingly several different definitions for this simple word. Its’ etymology shines some light on how it’s capable of being used, some of which would have others cocking their heads without the use of a search engine! One is praise, which is something I received on the first post of this blog: Thank you…

Project
