And why do I keep talking about it?
This is good. Be one with the Dao
The Neoplatonists, as I have discovered in the last year, and early Greek philosophers were concerned with how to live Iife such that they were oriented to the True, the Good, and the Beautiful, which they believe emanated from the One, and that in our life, our highest calling was to orient ourselves to the virtues and values that requires and live our lives in accordance with them. They designed lives and practices that were intended to align oneself and enhance this idea of a valueception. McGilchrist and the Greeks agree that something askin to the One, or the “sacred” is above values in some kind of hierarchy and that living into those values is how we orient ourselves to the sacred. Practices like dialectic into dialogos seem to be useful in enabling people to touch virtues in an almost palpable way. The Tao as you mention, also seems to be deeply concerned with this type of alignment as well, but avoids naming things, like we in the west do.
I like this analogy: "You look at the color blue and feel confident that you are perceiving some real quality of the world.. you can sense beauty, goodness, truth, purpose, and other values, and feel confident that you are perceiving some real quality of the world, not just a knot of arbitrary socio-biological emotional-intellectual rorschach blots." ...That view which claims that values are merely social constructions is most frequently associated with postmodernism. (I had just watched a video describing this striking contrast between the 'valueception' of process philosophers, and the 'value nihilism' of postmodernism.) https://youtu.be/dkKSNRNmnng
