a few posts back i wrote about my 'polarities' -- i think thats what i'm calling them -- the systems vs. whim thing.

my polarities (systems v. whims):
systems : knots, diagrams, directions, maps, math, schematics, music, text, physics, science, logic
whims : materials, emotions, representation/abstraction, experiences

in the book about robert irwin i've been reading, seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees, irwin has his own polarities that are actually kind of similar. i remember when i went to his lecture, he began with a powerpoint slide of these polarities, and i remember kicking myself for not writing them down, but hey they are in the book!

reason              logic
individual      community
intuition         intellect   
feeling            mental
