.. ugh. Hard to escape it. :P

Janis Kenderdine :D you have a way with words – and reminded me of my linguistics class (which was one of my favorites in Hampshire) – This is the distinction I keep tripping over in research: Forms/shapes/what-it-is-regardless-of-us-being-here and Function/purpose/how-does-this-apply-to-me. I don’t think of it as a duality, but we are steeped in duality so it has been tricky to find ideas that aren’t simply modified dualism. Heck, even the idea of ideas (perfected forms in the mind) is dualistic… and so is the word ‘form’ even… ugh. Hard to escape it. :P
