The Ontological Elephant

‘It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is’. President Bill Clinton explaining the teleology of a cigar at the Monica Lewinsky hearings. I liked Bill.

Just as Epistemology studies ‘Knowing’ while already in a state of Knowing, Ontology studies ‘Being’ while firmly resident in a state of Being.

It is the Elephant in the Room, the one we all agree to ignore.
