Peculiar Angles of Observation

. . . I do not see how it is possible that creatures in such different positions and with such different powers as human individuals are, should have exactly the same functions nor should we be expected to work out identical solutions. Each, from his peculiar angle of observation, takes in a certain sphere of fact and trouble, which each must deal with in a unique manner.
– William James
American Philosopher and Psychologist, leader of the philosophical movement of Pragmatism, 1842-1910

Downtown Contrast

Downtown Salt Lake City has undergone some major reconstruction efforts in the last few years. The newer buildings form a stark contrast between the city’s older structures. Many of the latter have fallen into disuse or are awaiting demolition to make way for more “improvements”.

As I walked along the downtown streets the other day, I came upon what I felt was a striking illustration and visual perspective of the transience of our environment – both natural and manufactured. It caused me to reflect on how we tend to celebrate the death of our past, despite what we lose in the process.
