Our Three Laws of Making

  1. When any presumed scientific authority states that something is possible to make, they are almost certainly right, and whenever such an authority states that something is impossible to make, they are in all probability wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of “The Possible” is to risk our time, talent, and treasure to venture just a little way beyond that into “The Impossible”.
  3. The associated risk of our ventures must be predicated on their potential for ensuring the fitness of our species to survive, with a virtuosity of execution that results in form and in function, scientific and artistic expressions so advanced as to appear indistinguishable from magic.

Inspired by The Three Laws of Arthur C. Clarke

Cultivated Naïveté within Empirical Philosophy

Though the evidence does not support Dewey’s assertion that “we cannot permanently divest ourselves of our intellectual habits”, the main point he makes does hold true and is a cardinal principle in my life. Within our culture of intersectional racialized class, my cultivated naïveté is almost always interpreted as a lack of intelligence and education.

Muirén Ní Sídach

“An empirical philosophy is, in any case, a kind of intellectual disrobing. We cannot permanently divest ourselves of the intellectual habits we take on and wear when we assimilate the culture of our own time and place.
But intelligent furthering of culture demands that we take some of them off, that we inspect them critically to see what they are made of and what wearing them does to us.
We cannot achieve recovery of primitive naïveté. But there is attainable a cultivated naïveté of eye, ear and thought.” 
John Dewey
