Empiricism

September 2, 2014 § Leave a comment

Empiricism:

A way of knowing or understanding the world that relies directly or indirectly on what we experience through our senses (e.g. sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch); validation through experience.

This is a radically different approach than a religious or idea driven approach to life.

What is the sand, the ocean, the expanse of billions of gallons of water moving in and out day after day? What is her hair, her laugh, the universes inside her eyes?

Save experience, you will never know the depth of these miracles.

In a world of digitialization, of status updates and edited photos, there is little room for empiricism left.

The future belongs to those willing to get their hands dirty in the mud, grime, and mystery of experience.
