I’m thinking a little about the nature of quality – as expressed by Philosophy – in particular by the author of Zen and the Art of motorcycle maintenance.
If quality is above subjective and objective, beyond categories – perhaps it simply means reaching some sort of standard but not a prescribed standard. Some kind of agreement that’s internal and external – not so lofty as harmony or platonic ideals – which according to him is a “setting” of quality in unchanging state, which isn’t wrong but is incomplete.
Closer to what Plato thought of as “good”.
But I could see some fascination about quality because it has a mythological beginning – historically in Greek thought. Perhaps that is why he feels that it is not me that create religion but religion that creates us. The qualities.
