Architectonic 2019

I wrote the original architectonic to structure and order the entirety of my philosophical beliefs.

There is also have a grander goal of structuring and ordering the entirety of philosophical thought by encapsulating every thought concept into an outline. An architectonic. I hope I can accomplish this with total clarity.

It's not easy, there are a lot of concepts that are similar or overlap and for every positive concept there is also a negative concept that might be left out of an outline like this.

The primary changes for 2019 are breaking out Purpose and further developing my thoughts on Aesthetics.
