Phenomenology (noun): phe·​nom·​e·​nol·​o·​gy

Definition of phenomenology 

The study of the development of human consciousness and self-awareness; describes the formal structure of the objects of awareness and of awareness itself in abstraction from any claims concerning existence

The approach and conceptual reflection launch a redemptive ideology which states that each deviation of thought, and all perceptions hold a share in a surpassing entity.

The tangible commodities in direct experience are not my focus, on the contrary it is how objects and color interact when they are consciously perceived.  The interaction serves to prompt one into an ethical role.  What am I perceiving?  What does it mean, and more importantly, why am I perceiving sensory data in this fashion?  Rather than interrogating the substance, I am examining my self; the objects simply act as a vessel offering momentum towards self-actualization.  It is about who I am, and what I can make of it.

Phenomenology provides a bridge into a territory of knowledge that distinguishes validity from illusion.  The object of sensory intuition becomes tangible only when categorized through the interpretation of substance and cause.  It is my aim to emphasize the whole over its parts by exulting phenomena in terms of relations with others; we are created to be whole.
