    Vertical Analogy



    Most all RHP Member/Subscribers motivated to post in this forum have either played or watched baseball at some point in their lives. In baseball parlance, savvy diamond strategy has always been and still is to 'pitch and hit it where they ain't'. In terms of our mortal pilgrimage, which fields of human perception have always played out as our preferred fields of choice? Would venture to suggest Empiricism (experience it, see, touch, taste it) and Rationalism (figure it all out with the octane of your own brain power all by yourself... distinguishing yourself by going well beyond Descarte, Spinoza, Sartre, favorite authors, popular pundits, et al, in the process). What if it's the bottom of the 9th, bases loaded, the whole season at stake and the cleanup batter at the plate defies common wisdom by laying down a perfect first base line drag bunt (code named Faith Perception) and the entire infield is playing habitually back without a clue that in this game it isn't about the first two fields of human perception?

    I just thought I'd chime in to say the only experience I have of baseball is from reading Charlie Brown cartoons.

    Yes. True enough that, Duecer... especially when it comes to injecting lowest

    common denominator off topic comments and making waves of negativity.

    yes if you could stop doing that as well that would be helpful.

    but seriously, you couldn't have strained any harder to create such a ponderous analogy if you tried. Take it for negetivity if you wish, most peolpe would call it constructive criticism.

    Analogy came to mind during a morning swim, while talking with my new friend

    Joe and his young son Lucas who eats and drinks and sleeps baseball. That's all.

    Yeah... you are probably correct as usual. Next time maybe

    dumb everything down. Any comments on the thread topic?
