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

Like 50,000 years ago

Some don’t like me studying the ‘humans’. That’s not news. And why? Well the humans do not like to be seen as they really are. A few things have come up in the last few months. The Future The humans believe that the future is a particular time. The realityRead 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

A new year brings new hope – for some

I realise that I haven’t said anything on this blog for quite some time.  I’ve been busy elsewhere of course. I need more hours in the day! Each year grows more and more interesting and challenging. The years seem to pass by even more quickly than before.  2016 was aRead More

Recently I’ve become re-addicted to Star Trek Voyager. In fact I had not seen Series 5 to 7 so it was just great to catch up. Voyager is like no other Star Trek spin off. Those who still recall and admire the original Star Trek and can’t unstick themselves fromRead More

As with any sort of inquiry or rambling, it’s important to delineate what one means – especially to avoid the ‘it depends’ and the ‘not necessarily’ groups of people. AsRead More

To be or not to be..

I never read English Literature in my early days. That’s sad. It was a choice between ‘Sciences’ and ‘Literature’ –  a very sad bifurcation over which I had no control. However, now in these later years I can appreciate what I missed.   “To be, or not to be: thatRead More

Nano.. Nano!!
