George Gamow–not forgotten

I just bought George Gamow’s book ‘One, Two, Three Infinity.’ I had been toying with the idea of buying this book for months. The book is/was important to me. At around the age of 12 – 17, I used to spend many hours after school reading and trying to understandRead More

Afterlife

Just listen.. or not.

Thought for tomorrow

“Throughout theological history we have been assured by religious leaders that if we perform certain rituals, repeat certain prayers or mantras, conform to certain patterns, suppress our desires, control our thoughts, sublimate our passions, limit our appetites and refrain from sexual indulgence, we shall, after sufficient torture of the mindRead More

Quasi-logic .. painful

“Free your mind from the known, then you are truly free!” –  Captain Walker 2011

Thought for tomorrow

Those who use rights as shields under which they may safely conspire to effect such destruction, risk having their rights stripped from them.Read More

Jiddu Krishnamurti – the reluctant ‘messiah’.

It has taken me about three-weeks of reading and listening to video material for 15 hours, to come to write this. So much in awe am I, about this great soul. I had read one of his books in my late teens and sadly did not realise at the timeRead More
