Saying nice things–by Scrooge!

It’s that time of year when I’ve been receiving the odd season’s greetings – and have been forced to send one or two to various folk. Yes – you got that. People and people on behalf of organisations are emailing me over the last two weeks to say “Seasons Greetings”,Read More

The power of attitude

What is attitude? Where and how does it arise? What is it’s power? Does it have power? What is power? A power is anything that has influence over our being. So I have the power to direct myself to type this, therefore I am in power at this point. IfRead More

Of cat love–human love–and Dawkins.

If you’re expecting or looking for thoughts on loving cats or the love of cats, kindly depart now.  I’ve been thinking about my cat and his relationship to me (and vice versa – if you please), over the last several weeks. This has led me to think about how humansRead More

Can ‘robots’ acquire human rights?

This issue is explored extensively in certain Sci-Fi movies – and immediately many will have clicked on some other link, ruled by System 1 thinking. Those blessed with an innate or acquired portion of System 2 thinking may stay on a bit longer. Sci-Fi is only a stage upon whichRead More

How different

I’ve been out walking in fields. I stopped and looked at some sheep. 99% of them and their heads down – feeding. I had no reason to think that they were planning a terrorist attack on anyone. In fact I’ve never heard of sheep being arrested for terrorism or anyRead More

An amazing accident and coincidence

No – that’s not my railcard. It’s just a photo of some railcard I found on the net, for illustrative purposes. So what’s the story? I decided last night that some time today (14th August 2013), I’d attend the Great British Beer Festival.  So, I look for my railcard thatRead More

How to risk losing your religion?

A prison for your mind

Some…many, will never get it..they will glance fleetingly at this video…and say “SciFi is not my thing.. I don’t watch SciFi..never been into it..can’t stand it..  I’m not a SciFi person..you can’t get me to watch SciFi anything.” – thereby missing exactly the point – opting to remain imprisoned. NoRead More
