So if I think about quanta, it seems to be like this: if I don’t write, there won’t be any option to read or not. For yes or no, there is always a condition beyond the dilemma. This condition is another yes or no, and it follows in another external state, and so on up to infinity, where the mind cannot grasp, even intuitively.
The juxtaposition of emotion and discourse should not be viewed as a yes or no dilemma. Both types of intelligence are part of the same whole, and one cannot exist without the other. The civilization of the thumb emotionally feels that we can do it without discursive intelligence. It falls into the trap of stupidity because it eliminates its part, kills the whole, deprives it of any reasoning ability by annihilating itself.
The category of winey bloggers cataloguing and describing only impressions does not consider the consequences, so they are more on the side of emotional intelligence. Hence its limitations and repeatability repeatedly, what is sour, what is sweet, what is woody, and what is full of dry tannins. Going beyond the scheme requires effort, and it means learning and getting to know the culture, not only the winey one. This applies to all representatives of the civilization of the thumb because here, I can see salvation for them in learning.
Hence, I find it helpful to be interested in everything that has been written about wines in the world, including the whole science. It should first of all be mastered so that It would have some sense – such a sign of courage to speak about a topic so important for humanity. Pessimism tells me that a self-centred man, being lazy, will instead recognize that the ultimate truth for him/her is the temporary revelations of his senses. That is, there is no need to learn in this regard.
It can be seen all around, in the insane doubt of the knowledge of wise people, in a sceptical approach to any scientific truth, in which we constantly hold some manipulation. In madly depriving us of the ability to discriminate in favour of consumption, that is, in fact, in favour of a hedonistic feeling of momentary impressions. It seems that the philosophers of the Enlightenment era were right who doubted human altruism and rationality. After all, we will always go wherever momentary pleasure kicks us.
