Fallacy: Relative Privation

As usual this is triggered by my interactions in the background, with one or two who are gluttons for punishment – with exceptionally thick callouses on their backs! 😂 Oh yes – the beatings over the years has caused this. Obviously they derive some ‘masochistic’ pleasure from this! Just toRead More

Problem solving

As usual, it’s some discussion in the background that motivates me to think deeply about these things. But I draw on my experience of how people approach problems in general. I’ve been trying to extract some broad themes across a range of ‘problems’. So, I’m not focusing on mathematical, ITRead More

The COVID push

To be clear at the outset, I do not like the COVID-19 virus. It has caused a large number of deaths, chronic disabilities and economic chaos.  Technology & work Right – once that’s out of the way, what I will say is that COVID has pushed all sorts ofRead More

Not enough time?

One of the commonest words I hear from my close circle of contacts is ‘later‘. The next is ‘I’ll check’ – like do I need to know?  Why not check first and then say ‘done it’? I don’t know. Jeeez! Maybe people feel they are being polite or  some nonsense.Read More

Productivity

To simpletons productivity means ‘producing something‘. In this post I’m looking into what productivity may mean. Of course, as per usual anything can mean anything to anybody – as it’s a free country! I’m not about to debate with morons and play with words – nor am I here toRead More

Why is reality a hard place?

Thought experiment and the blur between fantasy and reality

Right – so I don’t really know exactly why I come up with topics like these. It’s probably about ‘stuff’ that I’ve come across and have been thinking about for some time. Then something happens and I get some sort of inspiration to write. So, with the recent warm patchRead More

Jiddu Krishnamurti – the reluctant ‘messiah’.

This post was originally created on 02:56 AM 20th November 2011 – just over 8 years ago. It was retrieved from a database of the original website which I owned. It is now re-freshed to the current date, with only minor editing. Some initial clarifications only because this is someRead More

What the devil is health?

Well, in case somebody expects a lecture on this, they have another thing coming! Today – in the midst of rapid acceleration of COVID-19 infections and deaths worldwide, I decide to ask a few people ‘What is health?‘ I’m a bit naughty, asking stupidly simple questions like that. Not surprisinglyRead More

Evidence is a waste of time

This is NOT about all the lovely things people can and should do with evidence and related issues. This is about what the human mind tends to do with evidence that is unpalatable (causing discomfort etc): Doubt it. Avoid evaluating it. Rubbish it. Apply unsavoury labels to persons who reportRead More
