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

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

It’s official: people are stupid!

Well, well – it’s been a funny old day! LOL. I was just at a meat market in a big city and in a 60-second conversation with a meat trader – he told me “..people are stupid! They don’t know what they’re doing or where they’re going.” This chap ownsRead More

Decisions and consequences

Why do people make decisions at all? What to cook, when to cook, what car to buy, what phone, what action to take, what job, when to give notice.. and so on. Life is full of decisions. Ultimately most people in their ordinary lives make decisions because they wish forRead More

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More

Now I get it.

For quite some time I’ve been looking at the rules of logic in relation to how people reason on various things. Repeatedly I came up with a gap between the rules of logic and the application of reasoning. In retrospect I discover that I unknowingly made an assumption, that ifRead More

Talking about time

I realised before that ‘time’ is perhaps the most important thing in life. It’s this simple: there is a time between birth and death. I declare that anybody who argues otherwise makes themselves out to be a fool. I’m not interested in how one (or ‘you’) measures time or aboutRead More

The problem of knowledge

As this is in the domain of social media, I shall be overly cautious and convoluted at times, so as to head off my words being twisted out of shape by ‘bent minds’.¬†First off, I am not saying that journals¬† are causing a problem! Next if I make what appearsRead More

Words?

Over the last year I’ve been observing that important thing called words. Yes – I mean spoken written and any other form of words. There is a problem. In this new ‘information era‘ people have been hanging on to words for dear life. Words have a way of being misunderstood,Read More

Musings over the past 6 months

It has been a terribly busy time. ‘Some’ immediately know, “..making money hand over fist” etc. It’s so amusing how people get ideas in their heads and before long that turns into reality. But strange is it not – that when it comes to really big ideas about making moneyRead More
