The Urge To Create Systems
I am writing about my thoughts and I am aware of the urge to formulate a system that ties all these thoughts together. Perhaps an over arching system is there to be discovered. But I must also be aware that any system is possibly illusory. Although systems are helpful in terms of conceptualizing how groups of concepts fit together, it is possible to become a slave to the system whereby the system becomes more important than the concepts. Any system should be flexible. I would never want to discard a valid concept because it does not fit into a system.
