How different

20130818_172605_HDR_2I’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 any crime at all. They’re peace-loving animals in general. They don’t build bombs and planes and trains and factories etc. They just eat, breed if allowed to and die. Yes – I know humans do this too but we do the building of various machines, travel to the moon, send satellites to Mars etc – some pretty fancy stuff.

In fact there is no scientific evidence that many animals lower than some primates are self-aware. But the humans like to argue about this sort of thing – yuh know, how cats ‘think’ and dogs are aware of their soul etc. It’s a never-ending argument with fools and I made a resolution some time ago to avoid contact with fools.

But what has the field got to do with it. Well, the inventions of humans have ploughed and prepared that whole field. The humans can do far more stuff than other life forms, they can invent and create machines that give them far more power over the earth, the wind, and the sky etc.

Others are scratching their heads, whilst another lot are reaching for bottles of Valium and clutching their wallets, while lying spread eagle across their mattresses. I expect to be warned about ‘Bitcoin’ and crypto-currencies, ... Read more

What changes minds?

It was  00:30 2008-09-13 – when I decided to start writing this. Crazy? So what. I’ve been thinking about what changes people’s minds about things. For example what changes your mind about accepting something, believing something or doing something. Why the heck am I interested in that? Because of my statement that “The human mind ... Read more

What moves the humans

The humans (in large majorities) like to think that they are intelligent, can think for themselves, know what’s best for them individually, can analyse situations and make the best decisions. They are unlikely to admit widely – outside of close circles of trusted friends – that they are rather incompetent or deficient at lots of ... Read more

No virus required – ticking time-bombs.

I’ve just come across: Euro is a house of cards waiting to topple – Nigel Farage. On reading this the following thoughts came to my mind. The root of all this mess in Europe, is two things: corruption and greed. Simple but not simplistic. I drift on to more self-talk/think. As I’ve said before I ... Read more
