meditation 1: Starting Out
§0: situation: at a turning point of the inquiry
traditionally, one begins a report on the results of a philosophical inquiry with a preamble addressing traditional philosophical concerns regarding the starting point for philosophical inquiry; but, this roadtrip lacks a definite starting point; for, I2 did not realize that I2 had already started until I2 I2 began noticing turning points indicating that I2 was already well underway.
presumably, every turning point is also a starting point for something new; but, I2 don't know that. nevertheless, at this turning point, having become aware of already being underway, I2 take the inquiry on a new tack just by attempting to move foward by reviewing my findings thus far.
