At first glance I believed the site The Philosophers' Mail to be a satire of some kind. I've been reading it every once in a while, and I still can't be sure. But it doesn't matter if it is. It's filled with insight, and it describe the unregistered connections we have in our brains. I love reading it. It's convenient to finally find an article that is on-topic for TMAP.
This particular article extolls fragility. The way I write and the things I focus on can certainly give the impression that I hate fragile things. This is not at all true.In fact, the main thing I value is success. I describe it often as "doing its job well". In the case of a fine glass, it could do no better than to be delicate. The scene where that glass performs is the play of self-control. Its job is to give you the tactile reminder that you have to focus on what you're doing, or you will make a fool of yourself.
