Human beings form concepts by their inherent, inborn mental nature. Human concept formation, however, may proceed essentially automatically and unconsciously, or it may proceed under the direction of intentional, conscious guidance. Completely reality-based, intentional, conscious concept formation requires disciplined, honest mental effort.
Philosophy is often regarded as a mere intellectual curiosity, more concerned with playing games with language and arguments than with the practical and effective guidance of thought, belief, and activity. This view results in a sterile and essentially unproductive approach, more concerned with studying the works of previous “authorities” than with studying the only authority that matters: reality.
The more that one's philosophy is firmly anchored in reality, the more effectively and accurately will it guide one's understanding of the world, one's relationship to it, and one's activities within it. Reality itself must be the bedrock foundation of all valid philosophy, and thus it is the bedrock foundation of Scionics.
