Flat Rock history via a road

Visiting Our Pastby Rob Neufeld Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock road             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane path to I-26 a mile away in the opposite direction.           …See More

Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

Multifarious Mind / for Henry

(Part of Living Poem)  

 

We need to abolish the term Better Angel

It’s not working Instead let’s try talking

About essential human nature  

 

What is it we most desire? Not revenge

But loving care and graceful movement

Through changeable environments

 

Yesterday you said Reality is subjective

Different for different entities What about basic

Reality? Is there a term for this?

 

I had to look it up A.N. Whitehead’s term

Actuality for objective things rather than

Things subject to interpretation.

 

By the way, I’m writing with a voice transcriber

Trying the app I might use later

And I like how sessions fall into stanzas.

 

Thanks to Henry for suggesting I record

My quote unquote wisdom I say record

As in out loud Not transcribe word for word.

 

Oh well We have a seed this present matter

About actual reality and does it even matter

If we know it as if that could actually happen

 

Watch how our minds fill up with several

Examples of the quest Two dimensional

Beings contemplating 3D in Flatland

 

People doubting trees falling in forests

So much occurring with no one’s knowledge

Mathematicians proving an inference

 

Scientists thinking to control the universe

People wanting to truly know friend or foe

And respond to them in ways that matter most

 

This brings us back to human nature How

Can it be that people have good souls

And yet become meek mad or foul?

 

There are enough puzzles to stymie a squid

You know I couldn’t go long without kid-

Ding Plus I want this poem to model how you think

 

A squirrel chases another around a tree trunk

Chirring they pause sensing the other’s movement

The pursuer runs off The pursued tops the treetop

 

Let’s consider the threads under review

Why is it so threatening to know the truth?

Is the denial of it the disease that causes ruin?

 

Is there a defeating aspect to truth detection

Seeing too much and sensing connections

And worrying if one’s filter is defective?

 

Which is why a squirrel is a perfect ploy

Diverting focus with its leap-taking plié

And providing the antidote to fear

                                                     Play
