Hello and welcome to my blog. With a touch of luck this post will be followed every week by a short essay, and additional readers. I hope to create & record my philosophy piecemeal , so that by considering, typing, and reviewing it can develop. Also that it can be discussed & debated, as an excellent avenue of philosophical fitness. Finally, that as much good as is in my philosophy is somehow equivalent to how far it spreads. Close to the core of my philosophy is the notion of imperfection, please carry that in mind as you read.
The name, house of pawns, is from an old gaming account. It is a spin from house of cards, which are notoriously hard to construct. This is how good philosophy feels, a collection of small words (pawns) used to create some larger idea (house). Words are not only their dictionary definition (cards) but also a part of the working schema (house) each of us holds inside our minds. We all pass pawns between us, words built from 26 almost equal letters. We hope these pawns can better our ourselves, our causes and the various houses we make or recreate. The metaphor continues and dives deep down into a rabbit hole.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, this place is for my words. Don’t take too specific a perspective on the truth. A good lie can do a lot of good an ugly truth cannot, there are better ways to do bad things. I hope my ideas & schema are good enough to help you and yours. Ideas & emotions are the most freely shared of all things, and I hope to make better the grand & global pool of thoughts & feelings.
