I 8767 ll keep reading and maybe edit or add on a change of feelings if I have one. But I can 8767 t help but feel the author is grasping at straws in an attempt to paint Lucas in a favorable light after what is almost universally considered one of the greatest disappointments in film history.
There is one misunderstanding which it is important to avoid when considering Locke’s anti-nativism. The misunderstanding is, in part, suggested by Locke’s claim that the mind is like a tabula rasa (a blank slate) prior to sense experience. This makes it sound as though the mind is nothing prior to the advent of ideas. In fact, Locke’s position is much more nuanced. He makes it clear that the mind has any number of inherent capacities, predispositions, and inclinations prior to receiving any ideas from sensation. His anti-nativist point is just that none of these is triggered or exercised until the mind receives ideas from sensation.
Locke defines a quality as a power that a body has to produce ideas in us. So a simple object like a baked potato which can produce ideas of brownness, heat, ovular shape, solidity, and determinate size must have a series of corresponding qualities. There must be something in the potato which gives us the idea of brown, something in the potato which gives us the idea of ovular shape, and so on. The primary/secondary quality distinction claims that some of these qualities are very different from others.
Now you get it. It's the people, not the message. People can find peace in a religion or whatever, regardless of what others have done in the past in it's name. Was that so hard? Or is that not spelled out enough for you?

But I regard the freeing of the human mind from its severe physical limitations of scope and duration as the necessary next step in evolution. Evolution, in my view, represents the purpose of life. That is, the purpose of life and of our lives is to evolve. The Singularity then is not a grave danger to be avoided. In my view, this next paradigm shift represents the goal of our civilization.
There is one very important piece of the puzzle missing from this commentary: the role of public schools in indoctrinating children away from Christianity and toward hedonism. More than a decade ago, it was reported that 67 percent of public high school students were fully on board with homosexual 8775 rights. 8776 No wonder! When children are bombarded with these messages, and when they want to please teachers and administrators in positions of power and authority over them, they learn very quickly where their bread is buttered. They dummy up and go with the flow, as if they really ever had any alternative direction at all to consider. This whole g-movement was force-fed on the and then Democrat presidents largely enforced it with anti-Christian judicial nominations.
I really wonder how The Force Awakens and the sequel trilogy will fit into this. If ring composition was Lucas 8767 s intent and he wrote the story treatments for the sequels, then perhaps it still will be connected. If the prequels are the Yin and the originals the Yang, then perhaps the sequels will be the Third Way, as it 8767 s more spiritual in tone. It doesn 8767 t need to do all the reverse-copying stuff as well, since the Third Way transcends the Yin/Yang conflict. I 8767 d be interested in a follow-up to this in 7575 examining Episodes VII-IX in this same light.
