Starts with biology

Our biological being

and its existence in

the world is the most

fundamental part

of what we understand.

 

But then this being

Is assigned reference points

that we share with other

beings and are the next

layer of meaning in

correspondence with

biology.

 

This we call language.

 

And then from biology

and these common

reference points in the world

we abstract and form

categories and hierarchies

of meaning.

 

This we call thinking.

 

Then from biology

and reference points

and thinking,

we separate and specialise,

and assign new labels.

 

This call disciplines or fields,

which become knowledge.

 

And it has a history and

a collective order

that is twisting and

winding on.

 

But it all starts with

biology: the physical being

in the world, sustaining, perceiving,

adapting, generating, and relating.
