SoundEagle🦅 added a quote:

The ISEA Model Identifying Human-Nature Relationships with respect to Sound, Music and Noise“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” — Lawrence Pearsall Jacks, Education through Recreation (1932), p. 1

The contemporary tertiary education system and some of the intramural politics and bottom-line approaches operating at universities can be detrimental and even hostile to academic research, especially multidisciplinary undertakings. There are both limits and segregations imposed on intellectual liberty with respect to research territories and knowledge demarcations, beyond which there are barely scant platforms and rare opportunities to generate some debates, discussions or studies on issues never, seldom or inadequately debated or contested before. Since demonstrating a substantial engagement with existing literature and critiquing contested areas of thought are enshrined and mandatory, those areas that have not been researched or contested would tend to be much less favoured or noticed, if not automatically consigned to or considered as non-academic or second-rate materials. In other words, there are significant barriers to becoming maverick and holistic in one’s academic life, and to functioning as an exemplary liberal scholar, in addition to the added risk of being ignored, abandoned, consigned or ostracised as anachronistic proponents or promulgators of erudition and education. It is unfortunate that those who conduct research at colleges, universities or other tertiary institutions face constant pressure to have clearly defined research topics and agendas, which are supposed or expected to be concentrated on and shaped by the most contested, recognized or commensurable areas that comply or align well with the prevailing paradigm, academic climate and intellectual zeitgeist, in which ideas, data, models, methodologies and theories are created, examined, refined and fought over and over again by peers and rivals, and repeatedly quoted with zest by fellow scholars and aspiring students to show that they are up there with the most consequential leaders. Contests are usually fought contiguously, with rivals coming from within a discipline and focussing on specialism and micro-topics. At the multidisciplinary level, the dins and roars of such contests are few and far between, as fault lines seldom straddle continents of knowledge. Even when they do, they are often dismissed, misunderstood or ignored rather than examined or contested. The upshot is that academic research is increasingly reduced to playing an intramural game for “points” that earn coterie repute and disputable expectation, where conditions conducive to unbridled, exploratory or revolutionary ways of conducting research or investigation have become very illusive, even more so as colleges and universities opt to operate under the model of mass education and customer satisfaction, all too often underfunded, overburdened, vocationalized and instrumentalized, becoming more performance-managed, metricized, casualized and marketized under the pervasive influence of privatisation, consumerism, audit culture, managerialism and neoliberal orthodoxy.[❆]

The rich affordances and features available on this website constitute a multipronged approach for circumventing the many restrictions and conventions imposed by academic journals whose contents are often hidden behind paywalls, insofar as self-publishing certainly presents numerous advantages, which, when combined with the dynamic nature of webpages offering contents that can be freely viewed and shared by visitors and commenters, are attractive to the likes of SoundEagle🦅 who has been an inveterate freethinker, teacher and communicator.

Apart from the accessibility of academic works as mentioned earlier, this website and its 📑Posts and Pages📃 have also been meticulously invested with tools and presentational details to mitigate other extant issues that remain to be addressed by scholarly publications. Academic papers published in most if not all conventional journals tend to be highly limited in scope, format and feature, mostly presented in monochrome or greyscale and rarely in colour; cannot include large or complicated illustrations, maps, charts, schematics and/or statistics; unable to incorporate audiovisual contents, videos, animations, pop-ups, hyperlinks, comments, revisions, extensions, user interfaces and other real-time, dynamic or interactive components, let alone social media integration; and ill-suited or ill-prepared to deal with highly innovative, interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary works, not to mention that there continue to be few or no referees and reviewers qualified or knowledgeable enough to evaluate them properly and cogently without intellectual oversight and bias.

The longest 📑Posts and Pages📃 are effectively multimedia publications meant for serving users as versatile and comprehensive enchiridions or reference books. Well-formatted and in-depth discussions, analyses and conclusions aside, they contain plenty of hyperlinks, tooltips, quotations, charts, tables, illustrations, animations, infographics and bullet-point summaries as well as navigational menus. Each book-length 📑Post or Page📃 simultaneously exhibits the features and combines the functions of a long-form essay, investigative research, academic dissertation, scholarly monograph and dynamic web document.

The 📑Posts and Pages📃 featured on this website are not inclusive of earlier publications, older academic oeuvres, dissertations and theses as well as unpublished works.

You are welcome to taste the fruits of SoundEagle🦅’s labour, which are meant to be delivered in all their bespoke glories to your satisfaction so as to fulfil your high expectation with flying colours whilst offering you engaging experience of SoundEagle🦅’s intellectual home, sonic nest, musical den and artistic eyrie via the synergy of excogitation, cerebration and intellection.

  1. Every man is his own master.
    Man must know what he has to do.
    Man is time in his little time
    The soul and spirit is within us and not out there.
    The human being lives, experiences the soul – body – unity.
    The soul sends each person their own dream, this vision, which everyone has to work on for themselves to gain new insight.
    Every human being is unique.
    No one can see inside another person.
    Every human being is responsible for his own actions and omissions.
    Everyone must be able to justify their way of life to themselves.
    Man can know little.
    Humans have a duty to be aware of what they are doing.
    Man must know what the left hand wants and with the right hand dare to do better every day.

      Welcome! Thank you for complimenting SoundEagle🦅 with respect to showcasing a fine quotation of great import to commence this special post. Here are more from the sagacious mind of Lawrence Pearsall Jacks:

      • The spirit of fellowship, with its attendant cheerfulness, is in the air. It is comparatively easy to love one’s neighbor when we realize that he and we are common servants and common sufferers in the same cause. A deep breath of that spirit has passed into the life of England. No doubt the same thing has happened elsewhere.
        • “The Peacefulness of Being at War.” in The New Republic (11 September 1915), p. 152.
      • A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.
        • Education through Recreation (1932), p. 1.
      • The mechanical mind has a passion for control — of everything except itself. Beyond the control it has won over the forces of nature it would now win control over the forces of society of stating the problem and producing the solution, with social machinery to correspond.
        • Revolt Against Mechanism (1933).
      • I had been virtually a Unitarian (as I still am) but without knowing it. The experience of being among Unitarians who did know what they were, and attached much importance to it, was entirely novel to me, but I soon fell into their ways and found it easy to go forward on their road, the more so because the other roads became closed to me.
        • The Confession of an Octogenarian (1942), p. 99.
      • “Spirit” is matter seen in a stronger light. What else did Malebranche mean when he spoke of “seeing all things in God”? Existence is a mystery because the light of it is inexhaustible.
        • Near the Brink: Observations of a Nonagenarian (1952). p. 17.

        You are very welcome. Showcasing your works is always a pleasure. As you have already realized, the three of us (including Sue Dreamwalker) do care about others very much, even when we have a lot on our plates to deal with.

        Using podcasts to deliver the content of 📑Posts and Pages📃 can be quite effective when well done, not to mention that audio books are considerably trendy nowadays. Whilst turning some 📑Posts and Pages📃 into audio recordings may not be entirely out of the question in the future, such a multifaceted creature as SoundEagle🦅 is prone to giving much higher priority and preference to multimedia.

        Happy December to you very soon!

      • Hi SoundEagle,
        I have found that since recording my posts, there’s lots more interest. Most people are on phones when they search so audio is a good option for them. I noticed that some people just go down the line of my posts, listening to one after another – so some of the older posts get noticed – again. (Of course we’d prefer everyone use a PC when viewing our websites!!) I first began doing podcasting as a test, to prepare for doing audio for my books. (Which is still on the table – but I will get to it!) I’d be great to hear your posts! So, all in good time! You too, happy December!!

      • Dear Donna

        In a real sense, producing audio recordings manually through human-voice narrations is already superfluous, considering that high-quality text-to-speech converters are freely available for (integrating with) word-processors, web browsers and various computing devices such as desktop and laptop computers, smartphones and tablets. The main factors driving the development of text-to-speech synthesis are well-explained by SoundEagle🦅 in this expansive, technically written book-length post entitled The Quotation Fallacy “💬” as follows:

        Last but not the least, the textual suppression in every pictorial quote resulting from the practice of embedding quotation within a graphic or image is the utter bane for millions of those who are (legally) blind, visually impaired, illiterate or have a learning disability, since these people have no viable and reliable way of “reading” the visually embedded quotation that sighted and literate folks can optically decipher from the image or photo with ease. Many people who are compromised in seeing, reading or learning routinely rely on some form of assistive technology that renders text and image content as speech or braille output, such as speech synthesizer (also known as text-to-voice converter or text-to-speech system), screen reader, or refreshable braille display (also called braille terminal), to navigate and comprehend on-screen data normally presented for sighted and literate users via the graphical user interface, the main interface for human-machine interaction. Web browsers, word processors, email programmes, icons and windows are some of the most essential computer applications regularly deployed by users of assistive technology. Given that pictorial quotes are graphics drawn on the screen at particular positions, there is no purely textual representation of the graphical contents of the display that can be converted into speech or braille output, unless the punctiliousness of the author of a web document has ensured the presence of alternative text in the form of alt="" to include the intended quotations within the respective alt attributes of the <img> elements used to embed the corresponding graphics in the source HTML or XHTML document. Otherwise, the quotations contained in pictorial quotes always remain “invisible”, inaccessible and non-existent to users of speech synthesizer, screen reader or braille terminal. Such issues caused by textual suppression also remain unsolvable when pictorial quotes are presented on printed materials. In summary, pictorial quotes have fallen short on meeting the noble and inclusive goal of web accessibility, which is to remove barriers to communication and interaction that numerous people face in the physical world, especially people with compromised hearing, movement, sight and cognitive ability, by providing equal access and equal opportunity to people with diverse abilities, on the basis that access to information and communications technologies, including the world wide web, has been defined as a basic human right in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD).

        The aforementioned issues also happen to be constituting some of the critical reasons as to why using pictorial quotes is highly problematic, as partially explained in a long comment submitted by SoundEagle🦅 to Sue Dreamwalker’s latest post entitled “The Collective Gathering of Truth”. These issues are often not known by the general public and the average bloggers. The full explanation and the solutions are available to you in the said post. Should you be interested, clicking the following title can instantly transport you to the post.

        The Quotation Fallacy “💬”

        On arriving at the post, you can locate the solutions to solving those issues by searching for the paragraph that commence as follows:

        To circumvent the two disadvantages of pictorial quotes, namely, the visual defacement of images and the textual suppression of quotations, and also to enhance web accessibility, SoundEagle🦅ೋღஜஇ has sought to present quotations above their respective images to preserve and honour them in good faith, as can be seen in the Illustrated Quotations showing Inspirational and Thought-Provoking Quotes at the end of this post.…

        A number of bloggers have really benefited from adopting the recommended solutions. This particular post turns out to be SoundEagle🦅’s most popular post, garnering around 256 comments and 755 likes from visiting readers.

        In any case, an important lesson that can be learnt by us is that uncritically accepting, following or giving into certain prevailing trends such as the conversion to audio books/recordings, the inclusion of pictorial quotes, and the over-reliance on small portable devices such as mobile phones to access even information that should have been properly or decently presented on larger computing devices, can invariably tamper with our better judgement and blind us towards many pitfalls or problems. As a result, we shall do very well to err on the side of caution and humility if not sagacity.

      • Hi SoundEagle – I get it! So the quotation writing should be separate from the picture for best optimization of search engines and readability. It’s be so easy to let a computer translate voice to text for me – however, my choice is to let my voice speak. Actually, it’s important for me to speak. I like the emphasis I get to place on certain words to make a point. They are doing so much to transhumanize us – I’m not going to make it easier for them!?

        Thank you for your input into quotation display. I confess, I post on Pinterest every day to get some web traffic to my blog. Sometimes I make my own quotes – so I’ll keep all this in mind the next time I do!

        Thank you for your reply. As satisfied as we may be with our own vocal renditions, we are unlikely to be able to produce satisfactory and consistent results in different accents and languages, not to mention that we are mere flesh and blood, tiring easily from the long toil of producing audio recordings whereas speech synthesizing machines can continue to perform indefinitely.

        There are highly customisable text-to-speech converters out there. For example, a free-to-use online version is provided by Clipchamp whose text-to-speech generator contains professional voiceover features including 170 lifelike voices (in a range of accents, ages and even feminine, masculine and neutral tones to tailor for various brands and needs), each available in 70 languages and 3 different voiceover speeds. In other words, the accent, pace and intonation can be adjusted to various degrees.

        You are very welcome to add comments in good time as you embark on your epic reading of the aforementioned post entitled The Quotation Fallacy “💬”. Though the post is very long and encyclopaedic, the navigational menus located at both the top and bottom can help you to jump instantly to the major sections of the post so that you can more easily resume reading from any point at your discretion.

        It will be very illuminating indeed to be informed by you later as to which sections of The Quotation Fallacy “💬” resonate with you the most and why, as well as which Illustrated Quotations are your favourites.

    • Dear Michaël

      Welcome! Thank you for complimenting SoundEagle🦅 for having the indefatigable dedication to maintaining a ostensibly unique blog, whose prodigious level of customization plus creative and bespoke integration of multimodal affordances and multimedia presentations require a high degree of imagination, creativity, experimentation and self-reliance in the service of pursuing truth, knowledge and consilience via interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity as well as erudition and sophistication where they are desirable, appropriate or necessary to achieve certain criteria or purposes, as you can amply observe from visiting this website in situ. Given that you have engaged SoundEagle🦅 on the basis of your appreciation of the sagacious mind of Lawrence Pearsall Jacks, you are hereby being rewarded with more thought-provoking statements from the same quotee:

  10. “La vita in sé non ha significato. La vita è un’opportunità per creare significato. Il significato non deve essere scoperto: deve essere creato. Troverai un significato solo se lo crei. Non è lì da qualche parte dietro i cespugli, quindi puoi andare a cercarlo un po’ e trovarlo. Non è lì come una roccia che troverai. È una poesia da comporre, è una canzone da cantare, è una danza da ballare.

    Il significato è una danza, non una roccia. Il significato è musica. Lo troverai solo se lo crei. Ricordalo.”

    Pensiero che mi riflette molto. Grazie.

    • Dear hgamma

      Please be informed that SoundEagle🦅 has never mentioned to you anything about plagiarism, illegally copied knowledge, intellectual property, or penalties. There seems to be considerable misunderstandings on your part regarding SoundEagle🦅’s previous reply to your first comment, considering that English is not your first language. Using Google translation or other similar language translation online can easily lead you astray, especially when the source language is highly technical or erudite.

      For example, the word “fine” that refers to fine quotations is an adjective for signifying that the quotations are good, satisfactory, worthy of or eliciting admiration, of very high quality, or very good of its kind.

      In other context, “fine” (such as a parking fine) is a noun that means a sum of money exacted as a penalty by a court of law or other authority.

      Moreover, “fine” can be used as a verb, meaning to punish someone for an illegal or illicit act by mandating that they pay a sum of money. For example: She was fined £1500 for driving offences.

      “Fine” is also a French brandy of high quality made from distilled wine rather than from pomace.

      Lastly, “fine” is used in musical directions to indicate the place where a piece of music finishes — when this is not at the end of the score but at the end of an earlier section that is repeated at the end of the piece.

      Please kindly refrain from using Google translation or other similar language translation to dicipher SoundEagle🦅’s comments. Consulting someone who is competent in both German and high-level written English is much preferrable. Thank you for your understanding.

      Yours sincerely,Rose Greeting‍

      • Zitat:
        Bitte beachten Sie, dass SoundEagle🦅 Ihnen gegenüber niemals etwas über Plagiate, illegal kopiertes Wissen, geistiges Eigentum oder Strafen erwähnt hat. Es scheint Ihrerseits erhebliche Missverständnisse bezüglich der vorherigen Antwort von SoundEagle🦅 auf Ihren ersten Kommentar zu geben, wenn man bedenkt, dass Englisch nicht Ihre Muttersprache ist. Die Verwendung von Google-Übersetzungen oder anderen ähnlichen Sprachübersetzungen im Internet kann Sie leicht in die Irre führen, insbesondere wenn die Ausgangssprache sehr technisch oder gelehrt ist.
        Zum Beispiel ist das Wort „gut“, das sich auf gute Zitate bezieht, ein Adjektiv, um anzuzeigen, dass die Zitate gut, zufriedenstellend, bewundernswert oder bewundernswert, von sehr hoher Qualität oder sehr gut in ihrer Art sind.
        In einem anderen Zusammenhang ist „Geldstrafe“ (z. B. eine Parkstrafe) ein Substantiv, das eine Geldsumme bedeutet, die von einem Gericht oder einer anderen Behörde als Strafe verlangt wird.
        Darüber hinaus kann „fine“ als Verb verwendet werden, was bedeutet, jemanden für eine illegale oder unerlaubte Handlung zu bestrafen, indem man ihn zur Zahlung einer Geldsumme auffordert.
        Zum Beispiel: Sie wurde wegen Verkehrsdelikten mit einer Geldstrafe von 1500 £ belegt.
        „Fine“ ist auch ein französischer Brandy von hoher Qualität, der aus destilliertem Wein und nicht aus Trester hergestellt wird.
        Schließlich wird „fein“ in Musikanweisungen verwendet, um die Stelle anzuzeigen, an der ein Musikstück endet (wenn dies nicht am Ende der Partitur, sondern am Ende eines früheren Abschnitts ist, der am Ende des Stücks wiederholt wird).
        Bitte verwenden Sie keine Google-Übersetzung oder andere ähnliche Sprachübersetzungen, um die Kommentare von SoundEagle🦅 zu entschlüsseln. Es ist viel besser, einen englischen Muttersprachler zu konsultieren, der sowohl Deutsch als auch schriftliches Englisch auf hohem Niveau beherrscht. Danke für Ihr Verständnis.
