Maori Warrior Epistemology (Triangulation of Meaning; Body, Mind & Spirit).
Epistemology as viewed by the Maori Warrior as an ancient stream of knowledge that continues through (living & dying) like the sacred staff, illuminating insights and wisdoms through lived experiences. Maori Epistemology is a spiritual principle that nests itself in a wider and wider space of Truth in deeper and deeper dimensions. The Triangulation of Meaning; the synergy of Body, Mind & Spirit, then lends itself to the quantum (authentic) leap into new ways of viewing reality and challenging what is perceived as time, space and knowing – where the eternal struggle of forms objective, subjective and cultural are in direct collision. Genuine knowledge must be experienced directly, as it assists in the organisation of Triangulation to become the Architects of meaning shaping spaces yet unseen.
