my name is phillip

This is my little corner of the internet

I like books, music, cooking, Gardening, mountaineering, and building embedded systems

What have your concepts done for you lately?

Let everything be simple again

Our drive for knowledge and understanding
only makes the world more complex

what does it matter if you know all the facts?
what does it matter if the taxonomy is correct?
what does it matter if you use the perfect word?
words are only approximations, 
they can never capture the essence

Intellectually understanding principles and truths
does not help you live them

all that matters is it
the whole of it
the living and breathing and doing
here in the present
crackling with the energy of life

Drop your concepts
your empty search for learning
give in fully to your own experience
