Form, Essence

A good way to sum up one of the subthreads of the previous post is that I was working so hard on avoiding "form without essence" that I was basically falling into an "essence without form" trap. The real goal should be to make form reflect essence always.

Both form and essence are empty of self-existence...
but that's not my reason for being here, here being, in this case, your blog... I read your comment on Kos re: pre-Hitler germany, thought you might be interested in reading "A Chorus of Stones" by Susan Griffin. Great book, great stuff on H. Himmler that gives lots of insight into the Nazi mind, how someone could grow up to be that person, do those horrible things, etc. Fascinating insights.

Happy blogging!
