A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

“Open Mind” and “Closed Mind”

There is a dangerous little catch phrase which advises you to keep an “open mind.”

This is a very ambiguous term — as demonstrated by a man who once accused a famous politician of having “a wide open mind.”

That term is an anti-concept: it is usually taken to mean an objective, unbiased approach to ideas, but it is used as a call for perpetual skepticism, for holding no firm convictions and granting plausibility to anything.

A “closed mind” is usually taken to mean the attitude of a man impervious to ideas, arguments, facts and logic, who clings stubbornly to some mixture of unwarranted assumptions, fashionable catch phrases, tribal prejudices — and emotions. But this is not a “closed” mind, it is a passive one. It is a mind that has dispensed with (or never acquired) the practice of thinking or judging, and feels threatened by any request to consider anything.

What objectivity and the study of philosophy require is not an “open mind,” but an active mind — a mind able and eagerly willing to examine ideas, but to examine them critically. An active mind does not grant equal status to truth and falsehood; it does not remain floating forever in a stagnant vacuum of neutrality and uncertainty; by assuming the responsibility of judgment, it reaches firm convictions and holds to them. Since it is able to prove its convictions, an active mind achieves an unassailable certainty in confrontations with assailants — a certainty untainted by spots of blind faith, approximation, evasion and fear.

The message is that more can be achieved and attained with an active mind. This applies to the many arenas where humans navigate. This may be on an individual, personal level. This may be viable in a community, country, nation, world level. 

So much more can be achieved with an active mind. A mind that is guided by love, acceptance, tolerance, equality, fairness and justice. 

Exactly what is needed now to rebuild what we, as humans have destroyed. The hope is there waiting for us to make it work.

The possibilities are endless!! Endless like our humanity, endless like our world, endless like the Universe!

Google Doodle for today …. John Venn’s 180th birthday!!

~~August 4, 2014~~ 

John Venn, (4 August 1834 – 4 April 1923) was an English logician and philosopher. He is famous for introducing the Venn diagram, which is used in many fields, including set theory, probability, logic, statistics, and computer science.

~~Life and career~~

John Venn was born on 4 August 1834 in Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire to Martha Sykes and Rev. Henry Venn, who was the rector of the parish of Drypool. His mother died when he was three years old. Venn was descended from a long line of church evangelicals, including his grandfather John Venn.

He began his education in London joining Sir Roger Cholmeley’s School, now known as Highgate School,with his brother Henry in September 1846. He moved on to Islington proprietary school and in October 1853 he went to Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. In 1857, he obtained his degree in mathematics and became a fellow. He would follow his family vocation and become an Anglican priest, ordained in 1859, serving first at the church in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, and later in Mortlake, Surrey.

In 1862, he returned to Cambridge University as a lecturer in moral science, studying and teaching logic and probability theory.

In 1868, he married Susanna Carnegie Edmonstone with whom he had one son, John Archibald Venn.

In 1883, he resigned from the clergy having concluded that Anglicanism was incompatible with his philosophical beliefs. In that same year, Venn was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and was awarded a Sc.D. by Cambridge.

He died on 4 April 1923; the cause of his death was not specified.

Google has created an interactive doodle to mark the 180th birthday of John Venn.

The internet giant has devised one of its iconic moving illustrations to commemorate the life of the philosopher, best known for creating the Venn diagram.

In the diagram, circles are used to visually and logically sort groups to illustrate their relationships to each other.

For example, one circle may contain things that are mammals.

The other circle may contain things that have wings.

The overlapping space that both circles occupy would consist of mammals that have wings.

The doodle allows internet users to choose two circles, which then overlap.
