The “Here & Now” Problem

0231 M 03022020

An English professor-of-thinking,
Dr Joad
of the pre-WW2 BBC Radio 4 ‘Brains Trust’ weekly half-hour
often found himself having to hold forth
the all-too-brief
yet “show-stopping”
Discussion-Rider
It all depends on what you mean by _ _ _ “
{‘Here’ … and then by ‘Now’ … ]”

and t was possibly another prof-of-thinking,
Bertrand Russell
who efined that to
“It actually all depends upon
what
is meant
by _ _ _ !!!”

Here are we now, then “communing” a thought or two;
I siting ‘talking’ for a few minutes
you sitting ‘listening’ for a similar ‘few-minutes’ :

we are both
“on Earth in the 21st century
and in its its week number 06
and its Monday morning’s 3rd hour”

surely we couldn’t be more “here & now” !


HERE & NOW
I open my ‘new’ life-guidance book
Mind Hacking by Jennifer Ferguson –
{within which Jennifer has already got me
pencilling-in
my Big-Intention to
“tidy my place; box-by-box, room by room” –
but which ‘I being sick and poorly’
am already finding I have not yet managed to begin -}”

WHATEVER


NOW WE ARE IN DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT
POSSIBLY ‘CONFLICTING’
“HERES & NOWS” –

ARE WE NOT ?
