Technological Paradigms

Something should be said in the future about the nature of the modular citizen in relation to concepts of government, and intellectual categories; I find this stimulating in relation to combinatorial thought, and social science. Much is underused in the boundary between social thinking and technology and philosophy--- the typical answer is to be a generalist to the point of nausea, but that is not the only warranted response---there is another category, of the intellectual integrator, or perhaps "process mechanist" that is not always hard science, but interprets qualities for their influences within scientific or logical domains; This influence is broadly sociological in its capacity, but not its source of thought;

Some writers have abandoned the epiphany as a source of reference and relavence; Simple tools like rhyming and categories can inspire ideas like "the second zero" which may seem redundant, but are actually powerful tools, like the drill or the hammer (not to speak stupidly of these, but rather to use them as political thought experiments).

What is not notorious about the most notorious genius serves utilities beyond common sense, and still extraordinary, still, as if by ultimatum, ordinary: Nietzsche is like this; I find his aphorisms have a sociological sense that was not well reflected while he was alive. Madness is a tool for thought, he understood better than many others; it is this kind of double-negative resourcefulness that prospers in the field of "pseudo-culture"; that formative path where philosophy may prosper as a way of life::
