I’m Dale Udall, a self-taught GenX philosopher and Grey-tribe quokka. For twenty years, I’ve been living my life informed by an original naive philosophy I call Triessentialism. I plan to start making it public under this persona on this site, to distance the philosophy from all the other footprints I’ve left on the Internet.
Triessentialism is a fractal ontology. It can be used for philosophical realizations and reorganization. I’ve applied it to ethics, erisology, AI safety, economics, music theory, marketing, sociology, self-help psychology, and more.
I believe it could revolutionize the field of teaching people like myself on the autism spectrum how to thrive in society, and not just fail at passing as normal.
I believe it could bring some balance to our public discourse through greater inter-tribe understanding, for those willing to listen and think.
I believe it exists as the hidden bedrock of all solid, time-tested institutions and systems, and I consider myself a paleontologist of philosophy, finding the bones of the past, not an inventor.
My favorite fiction authors from my youth are Isaac Asimov and C.S. Lewis, and my favorite fiction authors in adulthood are Matthew Woodring Stover, Robert Heinlein, George Orwell, and comic book writer Joe Kelly. I’ve read and enjoyed HPMOR, Worm, The Last Unicorn and Watership Down. I’m an idealist and a romantic in the colloquial senses of those terms.
Well this is quite a tantalizing introduction.
Thank you. I’m currently playing with Excalidraw to create basic diagrams, since Venn diagrams are the best way to introduce the concepts. In fact, whenever I describe it with words, my goal is to simulate these Venns in my listeners’ minds, so I’m better off just plopping them into the post.
Now I just have to figure out the best way to include these drawings in the posts. SVG? PNG? Excalidraw native JSON? I’m lurking and reading the faqs to figure that out.
When I turn it into a blog, it might be best to have my own little wiki because of the way my content and terminology are interconnected.
