Dichotomy Transcendence and the Mensa Mind

Twin Pillars of Human Thought
Those of us who took a college philosophy course first learned about the duality of human thought when philosophers characterized the work of Aristotle and Plato as “The Twin Pillars of Western Civilization.” The concepts of Aristotelian and Platonic thought supported all institutions and accomplishments of the human race, even before history began. Long before Aristotle and Plato began thinking and writing, these two thought paradigms began to lift primitive man out of chaos.
Here are some examples of how these linear and nonlinear intellectual systems have been labeled over the centuries:

  • Aristotle balancing Plato
  • Science balancing the Arts
  • Logic balancing Intuition
  • Logistics balancing Creativity
  • Male balancing Female
  • Rational balancing Emotional
  • Thinking balancing Feeling
  • Applied Science balancing Theoretical Science
In recent times the plethora of technological blessings provided by applied science has encouraged modern humanity to emphasize the linear support for civilization, at the expense of non-linear balance, resulting in a dangerous cognitive tilt within our modern culture. By their very nature, pillars must be co-equal in order to maintain stable support.
