Nose aligned to work

Look at your nose

Your nose is a nose of poetry, and if you read further, you can see how.

First look at your nose for a little. Close one eye and you may see a blurred profile. Go on and divide (mentally) the profile you may see, into our main spans, here called F, O, I, and R.

Tick tack Tao scheming further divide each span of the Tao ascent into five lays, and I typically make do with presenting only from the F and O spans. F starts with 1 within your nostril and ends with 5 in the open, under your nose. O starts with 6 (at the nose-tip) and ends with 10 further up along the nose-ridge. I starts with 11 and ends with 15, and R begins with 16 and ends with 20. That is the whole ascent route involved.

F. The F part (steps 1-5) is filled with family learning, assimilating things, and being instructed. More details: [More]

O. The O part of living reaches the middle of the nose ridge (Koan-like assessment). To attain to the O section is to gain some Tao (way, means, handling routines that pay off). It involves accomplishing deals, dealings, handling things by routines (ways, modes, accomplishments) or rather on-going drill. and one goal in this is to keep calm. The O part deals with labour and appropriate ways at times. After you have arrived at some Tao or large enough Tao outlets, you can try to be culinary and artistic without offending the boss.

I. About the middle of the nose ridge is where the next main stretch sets in - the I part of the ascent route. The nose ridge in this profile picture corresponds with the Tao line between outer (yin) and inner (yang). This span (11-15) suits management and organisers. Also, many bosses get bitter for lack of understanding how things work.

R. The R part starts about where you knit the eyebrows. I rarely tell from this stage for self-helpers.

The fairy tale route to success your nose shows. It is pretty much in step with the structuralism of Algirdas Greimas. [cf. Moof, Sts]

Figurative expressions need to be deciphered to be put to good use. If so, maybe this applies: "There's nothing as useful as a good theory," said Kurt Levin. [Sop 11]

F-O simplified

Tick: Beads 1, 2: Of cogency most often. Basic insider rooting and some basic premises for further work, and a family to grow up in is fit. To get repeatedly very well instructed is fit.

Tack: Beads 3, 4: Of stringency. Finding one's grounding assets and going on to make life even better by sifting and straining some of them. It implies personal hammering-out of items and features and tools, being well versed, having some shelter, hopefully.

Tao: Beads 5-10: Of apt application with tact. Applying foregoing assets with topmost care. Having to do with probably suitable measures of dealings and work. Outfit that suits you. Seem frivolous enough to get a hearty welcome. Giving no offence most often, according to some round scheme of living.

Beyond F-O: The Fourth: Beads 11-16 (ca) deal with pieces of some canon more often than not.

Quite like poetry

The poet describes what is possible as though it were both likely and necessary. (Aristotle).

Good poetry may enrich your mind. Poetry is an ancient mode of expression. Part of its effect stems from your conjuring up pictures or images from within through it.

Homer's two classics, for example, are in the form of poems. In his Poetics, Aristotle compares poetry to history, and states that poetry is more philosophic than history and thus of greater intrinsic worth.

Poetry conquers or hovers by its reliance upon the line as a formal unit, by its heightened vocabulary, and by freedom of syntax. It can encompass many a mode: narrative, concise and pithy (aphoristic) dramatic with a satiric flair or not, very descriptive, tersely didactic, offhand erotic, and suggestive and personal. There are many others.

Neat and handy people sift what looks interesting or significant so as to make meaning out of more as they go on.

Culinary and skilled use of language allows for poetry too. Poetry has many means to its disposal.

Of Tao poems

A tick tack tao essay is rooted in gentle, rewarding Taoism - where yin and yang meet there is a so-called contact line called Tao (way). It is considered a way of outlets.

The tick tack tao program borders on poetry if it is not, and may further be turned into didactic poetry and poetry of other kinds by metres that go along with it. That poetry may irritate some, should not be the fault of poetry.

Tick tack tao essay-tables allow us to form both gist-poems that instruct and others that entertain in various ways. Tick tack tao poetry could counteract regressions too.

There is often help in being able to describe or suggest what could be going on and is about to happen.

Tick tack tao essays are designed for "anyone", for no one in particular.

Through sound deals, sound help could be had.

While you apply a novel teaching, bear in mind the responsibilities as a mountain climber - he or she is on some ascent route too: One step at a time, "safety first", no reckless moves in an upwards slope. One is to master the steps, make a cogent route, try and stay adequate or polite, and live on.

A frisk, polite, and candid-looking style can help upbringing a lot.

There is much to learn from artists about presentation.

A tick tack tao essay is a more or less terse serialisation scenario. Possible gains had from it, are had are by way of accession for most part. It suggests you build on top of former accomplishments, one step (lay) at a time - something like that.

And if things do not work your way, no matter how hard and well you try, your conditions may have to be altered. A kiss may do the trick when you are young.

Not impossible

The tick tack tao scheme allows for putting output of poets and others to good use too. Impossible? Not so. Take a good look: [Link]

Loose enough training programs in dealing with life on top of poet lives and outputs are now facts. What is more, you can learn to philosophise on top of poets, writers, philosophers and others through tick tack tao, and get accomplished in solid-looking marketing by it.

Strands let themselves be braided and knit and criss-crossed according to the design and its concomitant presentation metres, all thanks to the built-in connections of the groundwork.

There is a good reason for designing huge date reserves that appear like simple primers, but teem with acrostic measures. But bear in mind that what is divulged about the presentational tick tack tao system till now, is just a part of it, and not the whole cymbernetic system.

The number one aim is to master some area. That is no small accomplishment, in case. You have to think well to cope, all in all, unless others help you. Schooling is also for that. Tick tack tao scenarios help us to arrive at fresh metaphors quite often.

What has hitherto been quite fragmented and compartementalised assertions and knowledge bits allow themseves to be grouped according to the structuralist design that is embedded in the tick tack tao route of accomplishments: mental or outer - or both, preferably.

The generalised matrix-founded design, simple and cogent as it is, allows sound, cognitive schemata to be built rather easily against being outsmarted too.

Most of these claims can be studied and perhaps tested. Above it, do not believe anything but maintain calm reserve and integrity as you seek to find out of things, if you so will.

Handy solvency standards

There is a good reason to find out just what could be meant when we say this and that is okay, or good to look at. These things matter to clarify a long way, minding that some modern values are on the glide, and many values are vastly relative.

The Epicurean stand of making delight last the life through, is probably all right a long way. Tim O'Keefe (2010) says,

Epicureanism was one of the major philosophical systems . . . in the Hellenistic world; Epicurean communities flourished for hundreds of years after Epicurus' death; and the rediscovery of Epicurus' philosophy helped shape the scientific revolution. (p 7)

For almost all Greek philosophers of the time, the fundamental questions of ethics were (i) what is the highest good and (ii) how do you attain it. (p 107)

Epicurean hedonism turns out to be the pursuit of tranquillity, attained primarily by shedding the vain and empty desires that lead to anxiety and by leading a moderately ascetic life (p 107)

That reason best fulfils the purpose inherent in our nature, and that the happiest life is acting in ways that are rational - Epicurus would reject all this argument. (Cf. p 112)

The pain of getting an abscessed tooth drilled is bad but worth undergoing. (p 114)

Aristotle would attack the whole procedure of looking at infants to find out what people ultimately desire. After all, infants are immature [and] limited, with a limited range of desires, and . . . adults strive for a much wider range of things than merely their own pleasure. (p 115)

While corpses are free from pain and anxiety, there is a large difference between being unconscious and being tranquil. Corpses do not take delight in being free from fear, while we can. (p 121)

Epicurus' thinking on pleasure takes as its starting-point Plato's discussion of pleasure and pain in the Philebus. According to Socrates, pain is the perceived disruption to or dissolution of an organism's natural, healthy state. Pleasure is the perceived process of restoration of the organism toward its natural, healthy state. (p 122 The beer a friend is offering me now will bring me pleasure, and that pleasure is good. But because I have a job interview an hour hence, I should not choose this pleasure, as it would be more than outweighed by the pains caused by my not receiving the job and feeling great self-loathing. (p 122)

Vain and empty desires have no natural limit. Indeed, they tend to increase . . . and are thus very difficult to satisfy. (p 125)

Having just the basic desires, living simply and fulfilling them, and facing the future serenely. Would it not get stale? Epicurus would probably reply that such a life would be boring to many people, but that is because they are corrupt. (p 127)

In order to attain happiness, . . . practical wisdom regarding the consequences of our actions and the limits of our desires is not enough. . . . And if you are ignorant about the nature of the universe, you . . . need natural science to understand the true causes of natural phenomena. (p 133)

Epicurus says that the process of learning philosophy is pleasant. (p 134)

Epicureans can make a very strong case for the importance of friendship and of treating your friends well. (p 154)

Regardless of what Epicureans hold or do not hold (it may be difficult to decide), a thing can be be looked on as "good" if it puts decency or dignity in the first place, allows fair play, humour instead of combats and wars out of greed or drives to debase and degrade others.


Poetry Metre

Now comes a way to form teaching poetry by the tick tack tao design. Sort your points or choose a tick tack tao essay - any such essay should be fit for the purpose. Then select a line or two from the beads ("stations", lays) in this order:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (etc).

There you are. The basic approach is a simple as that. The quality of the poem is another matter. It depends on such as your skill in putting parts together. Maybe you find it fit to fuse a few points from the same "bead" too. If so, try it out. You are quite free. Have some fun!

Launced Example

The tick tack Tao table-essay serves to form teaching poems too, as far as we like. From the essay on a previous page we get, for example:

Manifesting Unaided

Unaided is seldom welcome and consolidated,

Up to snuff,

Handy and things.

Yet, manifesting oneself neatly is a main side to living,

Manifesting oneself well

Along broad lines too.

You may add rhymes and metres as you like. In blank verse - this is - it is not asked for or needed. Read more about the art of making such poetry: [Kusas]


Noses and Systems

"It is a great advantage for a system of philosophy to be substantially true." - Sophia Loren

"Philosophers . . . Few of them would be genuinely happy as pirates or burglars. Accordingly, they invent systems which make the future calculable, at least in its main outlines."- Bertrand Russell

"Our vision of what's important is exactly the same today, bringing together the best systems and the best software to empower people with rich information solutions."- Bill Gates

"Beware of a system where misses are penalised."

"No matter how fast your system runs, you may eventually come to think of it as slow."

"Any system that depends on reliability is unreliable."

"A system is a network of interdependent components that work together to try to accomplish the aim of the system. A system must have an aim. Without the aim, there is no system."- W. Edwards Deming

"Foolproof systems don't take into account the ingenuity of fools."- Gene Brown

"Is the system going to flatten you out and deny you your humanity, or are you going to be able to make use of the system to the attainment of human purposes?"- Joseph Campbell
