You must each time see as if it was the first time!


The word philosophy means love of wisdom, or love of learning.

To learn in philosophical sense is a continual movement, a continual renewal. It is not ”to have learned”, and see on the basis of that.

Usually we see on the basis of a memory about what we have learned, and have experienced; memory is the starting point. This is therefore not to see, not to learn in philosophical sense.

That something is learned in philosophical sense presupposes a mind, which each time learns anew.

There must be a creative emptiness.

The mind must therefore always be new and ready to learn, just like a child.

For that reason, it doesn´t interest the Philosophical Globetrotter to worship memory, but rather to observe, see and experience what really happens.

As a Philosophical Globetrotter you must try to be extremely aware, awake, so that the seen and learned don´t become a memory from which you see, and which in itself is a distortion.

You must each time see as if it was the first time!
