The single difference between your and my perspective is yours is apparently still dualistically caught up in the current paradigm of fragmentary science as a means of inquiry, and mine is utterly integrative/integrating.
When you realize that the philosophical concept of grace is defined as and denotes the dynamic interaction/integration of everything including opposites to the point of thirdness greater oneness is when “the scales fall from one’s eyes” because for all of the interesting reality and randomness of life and living the actual reality of the cosmos including potentially oneself IS that thirdness greater oneness.
Vis economics the dynamically integrative nature of the complexity of such modern systems (as opposed to errant static equilibrium) exactly aligns with the above description of the concept of grace. As an aspect of grace is Gifting/freeness and that is an oppositional concept to the current monetary paradigm of Debt/burden Only (conceptual opposition is the primary signature of paradigm change) its integration into economic theory as the new paradigm is, or logically ought to be the leading candidate. But such is the fragmentary paradigm of science and the hypnotically unconscious nature of any current paradigm.
“Craig, I want to find common ground with you but it is not obvious where you are coming from. I’ve been a scientist, Edward a farmer, Ken an advocate etc. What have you been?”
One of my monikers on the internet is The Window Cleaner. That is both literally and metaphorically true as in Huxley’s “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.”
DT: If all we can see is the infinite, how can we talk meaningfully about anything else?
Me: We resolve that by utilizing Wisdom which includes science, which is the very process of Wisdom itself for discerning truths especially in opposing perspectives while deleting their respective untruths, and integrate it all with the pinnacle concept of Wisdom….which is grace….one of whose aspects is CONTINUAL integration of all relevant factors under examination. As R. Buckminster Fuller said: I Seem To Be a Verb. We are all verbs of varying levels of self awareness, and the state of grace is love and knowledge at every epistemological level from data to self knowledge…in action, in process.
