  • 'Sometimes I think everything generic is a god.'
    - -Nathan Coppedge, March 2017
  • 'Sometimes I think I am the first and last of all philosophers, not because I am necessarily the greatest of all possible ideas, but because not all ideas came into existence, and I am the only one I know to provide a coherent standard for their reality. Not only that, but the standard was so difficult to create, and so late in arriving, that like Aristotle's logic, there will be little alternative to accepyting the standard, or rejecting altogether the possibility of coherence. For me, philosophy begins, and may even end with coherence. But for those that reject coherence, there may even be other possible standards, but none is likely to be rigorous. Without coherence, in my view, philosophy lacks a standard.'
