"#Philosophy . . . makes its appearance at a time when the spirit of a #people has worked its way out of . . . indifference and stolidity . . . [M]ind . . . proceeds from its social code of morals and the robustness of life to reflection and conception. The result of this is that it lays hold of and shakes this real, substantial kind of existence, this social morality and faith, and thus the period of #destruction commences. Further #progress is then made through the gathering up of thought within itself. It may be said that philosophy first commences when a people for the most part has left its concrete life, when separation and change of class have begun, and the people approach their fall; when a gulf has arisen between inward striving a and external reality, and the old forms of #religion , etc. are no longer satisfying; when mind manifests indifference to its living existence or rests unsatisfied therein, and moral life becomes dissolved. Then it is that mind takes refuge in the clear space of thought to create for itself a #kingdomofthought in opposition to the world of actuality. / Philosophy is then the #reconciliation following upon the destruction of that real world which thought has begun. When philosophy with its abstractions paints grey on grey, the freshness and life of youth has gone, the reconciliation is not a reconciliation in the actual, but in the #idealworld ."

#Federalists such as #JamesMadison , #AlexanderHamilton & #JohnAdams ("The #BillOfRights : The Fight to Secure America's #Liberties ", @SimonAndSchuster); and,
gospelers such as #MLK Jr. ("American #Gospel : God, the #FoundingFathers , and the Making of a Nation", @RandomHouse). The #USA is dead, long live the USA!

"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction." - Picasso - We are done destroying and have finished our first full length! We now move on to the next stage of mixing with @kevin_backroom in September. We can't goddamn wait for everyone to finally hear what we've been up to this past year and a half. Blasting off with something a little different. We've had so much fun enjoying the process. @jmsoaz @pcarpio87 @hudsonvalleyhikes #gyre#gyreband#music#destruction#creation#rocknroll#heavymetal
