Hermeneutical hormones for a new aesthetic

Tusar N. Mohapatra Says: December 7th, 2006 at 11:21 pm Not only has an organization an agency or a soul but also a destiny, pre-designed, if you like. Sri Aurobindo has discussed at length about the group-soul of a nation in his classic, The Human Cycle. The same applies to the evolution of an organization as well.

Hmmm, I’d ask for proof, otherwise it’s theory without substance, which equals belief and faith - just because Aurobindo says it’s so don’t mean it is, this is argument from authority. In any case Aurobindo is suggesting a location for the agency, the medium of soul realm (subtle). So I guess that Enron, British Tobacco, Halliburton, MacDonalds, WalMart, etc, all have a divine purpose and a group soul?
Tusar N. Mohapatra Says: December 8th, 2006 at 11:07 pm Daffodils are as much divine as the dredgers and the Infinite is under no compulsion to stop imagining and staying outside the walls of WalMart. Proof, like beauty, lies in the eyes of the beholder and all epistemological rigours, therefore, need to be tempered by suitable hermeneutical hormones so that a new aesthetic is perceived. In this subjective adventure we are all loners and have to plough our own furrows.
