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

Dream worlds

It’s one of those posts again. I just realised – even more – that the human being is content to live in a dream world. What’s that – somebody is bound to ask. Ok – so let me distract myself to explain. A dream world is  one where your ownRead More

The humans again!

I continue to despair for the human race. They seem incapable of distinguishing what is fact from what is inference. Yes – of course that is a generalisation. I can’t deal with each human  – some 6 Billion of them! Get real. If Joe says that Jane says – doesRead More

Thought for tomorrow

“Sympathy may twist logic but it cannot alter the laws of logic and the laws of physics.” – Captain Walker (July 2015).

Dislike of intensity

I’ve been thinking again – as I do – over the last few days, about another phenomenon amongst the humans. I will reference this back to myself because I draw on my experience of how people interact with me. But what is this ‘intensity’ to which I refer? I alwaysRead More

Why I despair for the human race..

I sometimes become despondent about the human race – for a number of reasons. I think to myself, that people of average intelligence surely must be able to read, understand, and apply some logic to what’s going on. Surely that sort of activity is what differentiates us from all otherRead More

Some differences

This will of course be expected to strain the brains of many folk who will go, “Sorry I don’t know anything about it.” And that’s the humans for you; if they know nothing about it then they don’t want to learn about it.

‘The Edge’ – no mistakes in the mind.

‘The Edge’ – is a film screened in 1997.  No – I’m not about to do a film review, so calm down. I had completely missed this film and only viewed last night on Lovefilm which is now ‘Amazon Prime’.  Recently I’ve become rather saddened that most Sci-Fi films theseRead More

And who are you?

Minor and strange encounters with the humans often fascinate me. I’m amused or even bewildered by their thinking and responses. Today another minor encounter, put me to think. I’m walking along on a pavement, on the side of a street (just to be clear), in my home town. A manRead More

Paint thinners

Right – why the devil would I want to write on or refer to ‘paint thinners’, on a sunny Sunday morning in my patch of the UK?!! Have I not anything better to do? Of course not! I decide as usual what’s better or best for me to do withRead More
