Let us not babble like children. Rather, let our arguments be calculated and concise. Let us remember the inherent value that humanity has, careful not to degrade personhood. Attack arguments and ideologies, not individuals for their own sakes. #conservative #liberal #maga #trump #donaldtrump #republican #democrat #patriotism #unitedstatesofamerica #politicize #government #opinion #politics #politigram #rightwingism #rightwing #balance #freethinking #freethinker #newspeak #controlthepeople #freethepeople #respect #humanity #personhood #value #debate #logic
Reading in the train. || I was going to write something more general about Williams' essay on Egoism and Altruism, but I decided instead to share some thoughts on a particular comment he makes near the end of the essay. The general topic should in any case be familiar, if you've followed my posts about Nagel, Kant, Hume, Smith, etc. The comment follows a discussion about I-desires (desires whose propositional content requires an 'I') and non-I desires (whose P-content doesn’t). Williams remarks: "Rather more difficult, and not yet dealt with by the classification, is the case of desires for such things as posthumous fame, such as that of Herostratus, who, avidus malae famac as it is said, burned down the temple of Artemis at Ephesus to gain a niche in history." He then adds, in a footnote: "It is a nice point in the theory of reference, whether he succeeded; the only identification we have of him, so far as I know, is just this." Williams leaves it at that. Can it rightfully be called fame if all that remains in the annals of history is one's name and a single—albeit memorable—act? Isn't what we seek when we seek posthumous fame something more substantial, perhaps linked to our unique experiences, to our idiosyncratic psychology, to our individuality as a human being who has lived for some time? Ultimately, though, what does it matter? Is Plato better off than Herostratus? What would it even mean to say so? The latter has provided us with an interesting anecdote, shared among others by Williams in 1973 and by me in 2018, while Plato since his passing has consistently taught and inspired generations of people through his writings—yet they're both gone. Neither knows what happened after they left. Value to us is of no value to them. To want to benefit others after you’re gone is a kind of altruism, surely, but wonderful as that sentiment may be, it doesn’t seem to lie at the heart of the desire for posthumous fame. Perhaps what matters is the feeling of being somewhat-sure that someone will remember and continue to remember you, which is of course a very uncertain and fickle prospect; but one can at least try to increase the probability of remembrance, ...
Community resources. They are important for everyone to know and have. It’s important for everyone to be at least semi knowledgeable in regards to what resources and support is available within their community. That being said, it is paramount for doulas. *****potential TRIGGER-domestic violence*******Years ago, I worked for a co-op and we only took low income, DV survivors. My first birth was with a woman who was a survivor and was actively leaving her abuser. I was just shadowing at the time, but the doula I was shadowing was a box of resources. She had a place and a person for every concern and need our client had, and thankfully she drilled into my head how important an updated, thorough resource list is. While you might not be able to compile a comprehensive list in a day, a week, or even a few months, always be looking for new, good, intersectional, genuine resources. •••••• #mom #birth #pregnancy #childbirth #doula #birthwork #birthworker #resources #community #motherhood #womanhood #personhood #support

Some images from a small book I made called ‘Where We Found Our Metaphors’ inspired by a conversation between Krista Tippett and Michael McCarthy Ms.Tippett: Ok, sorry, right, I - 500 generations of what we call civilisation and the 50,000 generations when we were part of nature, and your argument is that that is “where we evolved; where we became what we are, where we learned to feel and react, “ “where the human imagination formed, “where we found our metaphors and similes.” And that’s - it’s not an idea that I had ever heard expressed that way, but as you lay it out, it - in the way you’re talking about it, it makes sense in my body, what you’re describing. That that is still defining us. Mr. McCarthy: The idea is not mine, and it’s not new. It’s about 40 years old. It’s a perception thy comes from evolutionary biology - that’s the neo-Darwinism of the late 20th century, and a particular branch of that, which is evolutionary psychology, which has been going, really, since about the 80’s. And the core perception of evolutionary psychology is that 50,000 generations that preceded us in the Pleistocene, which is the age of the Ice Ages, when we became what we are as part of the natural world - when we were wildlife, of you like; we don’t think of ourselves as wildlife anymore, but we were wildlife then - that those generations are more important for our psyches, even now, than the 500 generations of civilisation which have followed the invention of farming about 12,000 years ago. So that there is a legacy deep within us, a legacy of instinct, a legacy of inherited feelings, which may lie very deep in the tissues - it may lie underneath all the parts of civilisation which we are so familiar with on a daily basis, but it has not gone; that we might have left the natural world, most of us, but the natural world has not left us. #michaelmccarthy #kristatippett #words #nature #deeptime #ecology #wildlife #illustration #thoughtythings #drawing #beinghuman #nonpersonhood #personhood #nature

Dear all, this is my first post after April and I really miss working on Notebookush. Motherhood is the most challenging chapter of my life since I cannot retire from it. Also, motherhood is beautiful but its like a full time double shift work without salary, appreciation and sometimes no help, also it comes with a plethora of unsolicited advice and criticism and crying (but my family and friends tell me that everything gets better with time inshaAllah). Im sharing this post as I would have loved to continue my mystery boxes but i don't want my work to suffer so instead ill be starting something small scale soon but it would cater to journaling and mail related themes instead. If you'd be interested/not interested in it, please write 'yayy or nayy' in the comments section.
BREAKING THE CYCLE OF ABANDONMENT You can feel abandoned, yes. You can feel lonely, far from love and life and warmth. Others can trigger powerful feelings in you, yes. But strip away the word, the concept, the story, and return to the actuality of the living body. What does it feel like, this abandonment? How do you know you've been abandoned? Attend to the sensations surging now in your belly, chest, throat. Feel the fluttering, pulsating, stinging sensations. Let them grow in intensity, or dissipate, and move. Drench them with curious, loving attention. Give them space; soften around them. You've got to breathe into yourself now, friend, for nobody is here to breathe into you, and they cannot do that anyway. The dream of love has died; you are waking up to the reality of love. Love does not come from without. It never did. It was always within you. It was your power. It was always your job, you see, to love yourself, to not beg for love, or seek it externally, or wait for it, or try to hold onto it, but to drench yourself with it, moment by precious moment. Do not abandon yourself when you feel abandoned, for there is a pain worse than abandonment: the abandonment of self, the flight from presence. Blame doesn't work here. Focus on 'the one who abandoned you', and you are powerless. Break the cycle of abandonment, then. Focus on 'the abandoned one', this precious child within. Invite loving attention deep within the belly, heart, head. Breathe into the ground. Feel your own aliveness. You have not been abandoned. Life is here. Love is here. You are here. And from here, a new life grows. And as you learn to not abandon yourself, you will, in time, attract others who are not abandoning themselves either; others who will not abandon you. For now you cannot be abandoned: You refuse to abandon yourself. Abandonment is an old word for you now. Too dramatic for your body. Nobody can abandon you: they can only move to another place, with their pain. (Continued in comments) ➖
Brought into this world I suffered, had my body exploited and manipulated by abusive hands, had every baby I gave birth to ripped from me and I was left to mourn while the milk for my child was stolen from me through an aggressive and painful machine. My short life was spent in pain, misery, confusion and in mourning for the children I would never see again as I watched my friends endure the same fate. Not knowing my own mother I suffered and yearned for her and now the children who I had felt that same feeling of sadness and loss not being with their Mommy. Violence surrounded us our whole lives as we were mere machines brought into a system of oppression. Where are you my children, Mommy is here and she loves you. Don't be afraid. My body is weak, it's tired and pained. They know this and now I await something else. Shoved along into the truck, on our way to another place. It's noisy, dark and scary. No one cares. The tiniest bit of warmth and sun touches my face and for the first time, a glimpse of comfort only for a moment. "I love you, I'm sorry, We are trying" they say as we pause. It starts to get colder again, I can feel something awful inside like when they took my children away, only this time it is my friends. Screams, horror, sadness, violence. Here we are with those abusive hands one last time. My life and consciousness is now out of this world but I can see my very being spread in supermarkets and clothing stores with numbers attached to each part of me like what I had on my ear. My body: flesh, skin and milk was my life's worth, nothing more. I wasn't a women, a mother, a friend, an individual. I was something, not someone.

NEW ARTICLE - Beyond the Personality Test, Part 3 (Home and Calling): Do you ever feel pressured to figure out exactly who you should be? Do you try to build identities based on compelling qualities, only to watch each fade into the next in an endless cycle of confusion and immobility? Do you find it hard to listen to yourself and understand what you really want? In this continuation of our study on identity and personality, we arrive at the 2 fundamental parts of what you actually are: your “home” and “calling.” Knowing that you’re always both home and calling is the first step to solving any identity crisis for good.

This is an important clarification question. Some well-meaning pro-life advocates only focus on the fact that a fetus is biologically human, but that’s not always helpful. Sometimes people use the word "human" to mean a valuable person, and we need to be prepared to give an argument that every member of the human species is a valuable person. In reality, an acorn is a very young member of its species and an oak tree is simply a mature member of that same species. Acorns aren't oak trees in the same way that fetuses aren't *adults*. Adults and toddlers equally deserve the right to life, and similarly, adults and fetuses equally deserve the right to life. #WMPLL_biology #WMPLL_lifebegins #WMPLL_personhood #lifebeginsatfertilization #lifebeginsatconception #fetaldevelopment #embryology #biology #science #humanrace #humanfamily #philosophy #personhood #prolife #prolove #apologetics #listentounderstand #understanding #equalrights #equalvalue #equality

❤🙏 We are so grateful for the brief and the book! ICYMI, in May of this year, a judge on NY's highest court cited the philosophers' brief (along with CAF co-founder #TomRegan ) in an opinion seen as a historic mark of progress in the fight to secure fundamental legal rights for nonhuman #animals (search Fahey + nonhuman rights for more info). #Repost @cultureanimals with @get_repost ・・・ Since 2013, The @nonhuman.rights.project has been fighting for two captive chimps, Kiko and Tommy, and their rights to bodily liberty. “Chimpanzee Rights: The Philosophers’ Brief” is a book from a group of 14 renowned philosophers examining the four lines of reasoning the New York State courts used to deny these chimpanzees personhood: species, contract, community and capacities.

Forging material worlds and constructing memory . The Crystal Skull . Skull figure made of rock crystal. Late 19th century AD . Purchased by the British Museum from Tiffany of New York in the late 1890s, the skull had passed through many hands and was said by G. F. Kunz in 1890 to have originally been brought from Mexico by a Spanish officer 'sometime before the French occupation of Mexico'. . Past speculation has suggested that the skull is of Far Eastern origin, but at the time of its entry into the collections of the British Museum it had generally come to be accepted as being from pre-Hispanic Mexico. Attempts to verify this on technological grounds have not proved successful. Although the stylisation of the features of the skull is in general accord with other examples accepted as genuine Aztec or Mixtec carvings, the overall appearance does not present an obvious example of Aztec or any other Mesoamerican art style. When last examined by the British Museum Research Laboratory the conclusion was that some of the incised lines forming the teeth seemed more likely to have been cut with a jeweller's wheel than to have been produced by the techniques available to Aztec lapidaries. .

Making gods. Thinking about material memory and the (re)construction and performance of personhood... . The Turquoise Mosaics . Human skull covered with turquoise and lignite mosaic held in place with pine resin adhesive. The nasal cavity is lined with red thorny oyster shell (Spondylus princeps). The eyes are made of polished pyrite surrounded by white conch (strombus) shell. There is a lining made of deerskin and maguey (Agave) fibre on the interior and long deerskin straps which were originally painted red (traces of the iron rich ochre pigment remain). The skull is believed to represent Tezcatlipoca, or Smoking Mirror, and was probably worn as a back ornament. .

This is an example of the Equal Rights Argument. On all sides of the abortion debate, most people agree that those of us outside the womb have equal value. Ask what we have in common that makes us equal, and listen carefully to the answer. In this example, the proposed answer is that being aware of our surroundings is what makes us equal. But people who drink too much and pass out are temporarily not aware of their surroundings. This is important, because most people agree that people who are temporarily passed out deserve the right to life just as much as people who are awake. So being aware of our surroundings can't be what makes us equal. We think a good explanation for our equality is simply that we’re all living human organisms. A fetus is also a living human organism, so if we're correct, then the fetus is a person with the same value as you and us.

“We do not have to fight for our right to be useless. For we are able to see the usefulness of uselessness, and if we have fits of blindness, we have both nature and art to teach us that ambiguity. Likewise, we assent to purposeless play, humbly filling our pitchers at its well, and if doubt and vainglory beset us, we may practice a humble scrutiny of the processes of invention. For since most of our living is unconscious, play is like matchstrokes in the void, bringing into light the structures we behave by, illuminating for us, however briefly, our deep meanings. How grateful we must be to art as it helps us to grow to the size of our reality. How grateful to all mysteries that lead us toward our clairvoyance.” ~ Mary Caroline Richards, from “Centering: In Pottery, Poetry and the Person” #wholeness #art #play #humannature #personhood

#MotivationalMonday I see you, I accept you, you matter Regardless of what you are going through regardless of what’s in your past. Where we are here and now is what matters. Let’s regard each other mutually as human beings. Sometimes that’s all we need. Two different unrelated, friends have had this message shared with them in some form recently and shared it with me. I’m paying it forward, because it’s been clear we don’t share this enough with each other. When passing a homeless person instead of recoiling at their appearance/smell or ignoring them, see them, say,”hi” indulge them with open ears to hear their story or what they have to say and gain some wisdom, knowledge, compassion and understanding in exchange.

Last night I was in a little dark spot of sadness. I decided to share it on my stories & I’m super glad I did. . . Naming this hurt is a part of healing & reclaiming the pieces & places in my mind & body who have been twisted to fit some mythical norm of “ok.” . . So much movement has taken place in my life recently & im having to face on a much deeper / intimate level my compacted trauma with religious spaces, family dynamics and the worlds harm. . . It is a lot & I want to start sharing more not to ask for sympathy or empathy but to start a conversation. . . Mental health is so vital to our spiritual experience whether it be Christian or not - it plays an intricate role in our connection to the self. . . When someone consistently attacks the core of your being, you pick up narratives and language that was never intended to be bought into. . . Practicing extreme grace with myself as I put things down, pick things up and sift through the mess. . . There is a new calling and a new life emerging, but it hurts like hell to get there & I don’t want to fake this as an issue “buy into joy” ticket. Because I know I talk a lot about accessing joy as healing. And it is HEALING - but you have to do a lot of emotional weight lifting to love yourself, talk to yourself and find on an intimate level what joy is in your own journey. . . This doesn’t happen overnight & neither does trauma leaving our hurt places. . . I wanted to name that yesterday evening in my emotional place because it matters to tell hard truths just as much as the pretty ones. . . Be good to you today. Look in the mirror and tell yourself true things you aren’t getting elsewhere because you know the truth - search for it, dive for it, fight for it & then carry it around like a personal parade of joy in your bedroom. I know you can find it. I believe in you. - thanks, self. . . #honest #truth #trauma #religioustrauma #churchtoo #familydynamics #spirituality #gay #gaychristian #faithfullylgbt #loveislove #gospel #inclusion #personhood #youmatter #sad #grief #joy #godisjoy #dearself
So this is new! We're teaming up with @morrison.sydney to bring you sensitively illustrated short fiction. As soon as I read Kate Finegan's words via The Size of Texas, I saw Sydney's paintings in my mind. I think you'll understand when you see it all together. They are perfectly suited. Slide for an example of Sydney's work; she's working on something new especially for this collaborative project. ​Sydney Morrison is a Toronto based artist, writer and organizer. In 2017 she completed her BFA in Drawing & Painting at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Sydney works primarily with painting, photography, installation and prose, through which she tackles themes of nostalgia, grief, and constructed personhood. www.sydneymorrison.com
N E W B L O G . . “Our fear of change, of difference, has altered our ability to engage with the gospel in a way that moves forward Jesus’s teachings of reconciliation to our modern day. And, just as they were then, people are hurting, unable to thrive and ultimately dying at the hand of stagnant, immovable fear of the unknown.” . .

🌳This piece, entitled “Revealing Personhood: Sisterhood” has an amazing back story and I’m going to let Anne Emmons tell you about it! ❤️ “The work in this exhibit developed from an inquiry into the meaning of personhood, that is, the fulfillment of the unique potential within every human being. It is about people, as living icons or images, in various inner states of being, relationship to others and to the world. Western culture understands the person as an individual; I am interested in seeing the person, at once unique and in relation to others. Each one is situated in a more expansive identity than being seen alone. This viewpoint corresponds to a relational aesthetic, and extends the dialogue cross-culturally, beyond contemporary notions of individuality. As the common saying of South African peoples expresses,” A person is a person through a person.”My approach in this project originated from being intentional about searching out and honoring the intrinsic beauty of personhood, and about integrating artistic practice and sacred tradition. The images form from what is here and now, both hidden and revealed, using the silent language of the icon, in theory and in practice. The images of people whom I see and the interior portraits I make from intentional acts of seeing are joined in the crucible of the present moment. The immediacy of experiences in relationship are brought into the daily work; through this symbolic language, I work to reveal something of the deeper meaning of each human life. Through my art, I hope to dissolve the barrier between artistry and life. May this also say something of substance to the viewer.” 👏🏻 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #coloradochristianartists #anneemmons #art #artistsoninstagram #colorado #coloradoart #coloradoartist #christian #christianart #christianartist #painting #sisterhood #personhood #relationship #identity #portrait #portraitpainting #lovethis #gofollow
