This document serves two functions. First, it is a way for me to look at the progression of my thought — and especially my philosophical perspectives concerning reality and the realities of experience: personal, corporate and spiritual — so that I have a clear enough reference point to develop things from in the future. It is a way of temporarily organizing the clutter in the garage of my mind so that I know where to find things when I want to use them again. I don’t think that my ideas on these matters are fully formed yet. Nonetheless, I have a feeling that the only way ahead for me is to get some of my thoughts down here and now and then to revise as things develop. Second, I am writing this essay in order to make available to others a sketch of the basic interpretive framework I use to make sense of things.
