As I continue to reflect on the nature of the incipient, other considerations come to mind. Anyone who accepts the reality of their limitation must learn to deal with provisional measures. One may want to balance my notions of the ultimate and the incipient with pragmatism. I do not think this is balanced. I think most of us medicate our condition with an illusion (subtle form of philosophy). We may not be trained as philosophers, but we attempt to achieve a “comfort bubble” and often employ some shallow philosophy in our efforts. I think pragmatism as a philosophy is useful. It allows one to make provisional plans, and enact provisional decisions. Still, our limitations limit us. Ours is a condition of absolute intellectual poverty. We cannot know that we know. We cannot know what we do not know. We are at the mercy of the ultimate.
