Comfortably numb

Have I become ‘comfortably numb’? I have not! But many others have. To explore song meanings see here. There are some – unknowing to themselves – who have become ‘comfortably numb’. To what? To the suffering of people with mental and physical health disabilities. No surprises there, cuz the disabledRead More

When the Earth has an itch?

I’ve been observing the Earth for some time – I’d say for approximately 40 years or so. Before that I was pretty much ‘asleep’ – yuh know, busy and wrapped up with so much other stuff. It has occurred to me, especially in the last 20 years, how we areRead More

What I’ve done

Just to be clear, I’ve done nothing more than try to help people to open their own eyes. But the problem is not with ‘the eyes’; it is with the brain or mind. One cannot open a brain or mind, even if one could pry open people’s eyes. This thoughtRead More

EXTREME STUPIDITY

Righhhhhtt!! So you might say I’m on a roll on this preoccupation with stupidity. Not surprising really, when you think that there is a fictional character living within me, which I often refer too as ‘stupid’ – and with whom occasionally I end up in ‘stupid’ heated debates out here.Read More

Stupidity – an invincible force.

Just to be clear – not because I deal with human stupidity – yet again – means that I’m saying that anybody who reads this is stupid! So stupid are people in general, I need to say this! The finest expose on human stupidity – as I recently discovered, isRead More

Disturbed

As this is social media of some sort, I expect all sorts of inferences about my ‘personality’, for posting this. I have a very wide taste in music from Classical to all sorts of ‘heavy metal’ and ‘acid rock’. Just be clear, I do not condone or promote the useRead More

Kobayashi Maru

If you think this is going to be straightforward, you are in the wrong place. This is not really going to be about the Kobayashi Maru. At first I will give a brief description of what the Kobayashi Maru is about. This is not really about sci-fi. In essence itRead More

Captain Walker almost diagnosed with respect as a sleep walker

I mentioned this situation in my previous blog, where I was almost diagnosed with sleep walking by a hotel manager. Some may have thought that I was joking. I wasn’t! The explanatory theories will preoccupy many – as if I can’t conjure up these too! The facts: I’m at aRead More

What does it mean to be human?

This is not an easy issue to address. It must be about the balance of human strengths and weaknesses. The mindmaps below represent a few months of thinking in the background, based on years of experience. They are not meant to be exhaustive. Mindmaps may be updated at any time. Read More

Intrinsic value – what a week!

Well I kid you not – it’s been a crazy week, ending up with me preoccupying myself as I do with uncommon stuff such as ‘intrinsic value’ (again).  I was in London, and I do not wish to be stalked about where in London I might have been – thankRead More
