Found this idea in a book about Deleuze. I share. Share, then.
This good old Plato had a funny idea.
To separate :
- the world of the perceptible in which we live
- the world of ideas where they are fixed for eternity
When we judge someone we compare a pure idea, an idea of perfection, with a reality.
Then we declare something.
Is what we see worthy of the general idea?
Well, then we can give a rating, a grade.
Problem is it doesn’t work like that.
There is no Sky of Ideas.
We all constantly want to escape that. We want to embark. We want to become. We search for sense, and meanings, and feelings. We dig. We watch. We cook and bake our life with what we find. We perpetually change. We hate to stay “the same”, to be put into boxes. We are alive and we want to try speeds and ways, to invent and to explore. We are simmering ourselves, and what we do… makes us understand a little more who we are and who we want to be; and this is called life.
There is no Sky of Ideas. Only possibilities.
Thanks for reading!
