Can I assume that everyone agrees? Doubtful. Certainly the contention that
there are universal values is noit settled. Likewise is there is a such a
thing as conscious (intentional) thought? And is there an inherent value in
thinking threes? What is a reasonable root triad for such? Lots of
questions including the direction implied in the remarks on pragmaticism.
As indicated Triadic Philosophy is hardly developed theoretically, though I
am working on it. I have tended to validate its premises on the basis of
experience somewhat in the matter I infer from reading the NA many times.
