And yet...
Squonk, you say, "Everything is conscious in my view...a

According to you, Everything has asthetic value (which is how you define
quality elsewhere), and one is supposed to expand "rationality towards its
aesthetic source" in order to find the unifying social guide.
If EVERYTHING has asthetic value, how can one use astheticism as a guide for
anything? Without a process of differintiation, how can pure astheticism act
as any kind of source of unification?
Certainly, you can say "pick the route with more quality." But when
individual views of the primary attributes and qualities of Quality differ
so hotly, what asthetic sense is to select which is supreme?

Without pure s/o rationality, there is no method for divining proper action
or resolution to conflict within a society.
High minded as your rhetoric sounds, you are merely repeating the useless
advice of a thousand medicine men and a million hippies: "Why don't we all
just get along?"
