On a Knowledge Expedition, there is no small amount of philosophizing. There are ample metaphysical discussions. And there is the operating of logic.
We hash around ideas and ideals; we inquire and deliberate.
Deliberation is a curious thing. Working things out through successive, iterative consensus-building. The rough consensus we crave.
The process also imposes limits and order on the field of the narrative we’re enacting. A set of rules and structures imposes a rhythm, so things progress. But it in this sense of the narrative being being limited – the del-liberation, so to speak – it takes a certain expanded view to be able to do that. But we do it up there on the side of that mountain. We do it.
We’re about the optionality of optionality.
