On the Nature of Philosophical Contemplation
by Lee Duane FitzSimmons
There are many ways in which one may speculate on various philosophical notions. First, one can take a basic idea and then play with it until it becomes something that is perceived as being profound and helpful. This is one of the more common themes that is generally employed when an individual undertakes any sort of philosophical speculation. By using this method, it becomes a rather pleasant activity to let the mind wander and create the various ideas that make up the existential and ethical fabric of one's existence.
Finally, it is possible to make up a brand new concept. Some would argue that this is not possible. However, it would be conceivable that something almost entirely new could be created if there were enough conditions placed on the core tenets of the basic idea used in the conceptualization process. By placing conditions and exemptions that weed out exceptions to the principles that make up the vital foundation of the idea, it becomes very easy to make up completely new types of speculations about a wide variety of philosophical topics. However, it should be realized that most flawed philosophical speculations result from a lack of conditions placed on the core aspects of newly created philosophical notions. Proper usages of correct conditions allow all exceptions to be covered so that new conceptualizations may be universally complete and apodictic.
When performed correctly, these kinds of speculations allow for the further development of the imaginative forces of the intellect. When performed correctly, these kinds of speculations also allow for the further manipulation of the practical realms. When performed correctly, these kinds of speculations allow for a far greater expression of the soul.
