Achieved: Mission Impossible!

The photographs will be an instant distraction in this post. Yeah some saw a boiled or poached egg on plate, and will have thought ‘What’s great about that?!! FFS‘. Except that it isn’t ‘a boiled or poached egg’ in the usual sense of how eggs are boiled or poached (usingRead More

Attitudes

As usual this is not a lecture on attitude(s). This post is almost entirely about personal observations and my own thinking about the topic. There is a mindmap constructed after reading many sound references. In no way is this post a complete exploration of the topic. I can imagine IRead More

Placebo

Placebo is the name of a band. I’m not interested in the band, in this post. This is about the nature of the placebo (and related) effects. I’m not giving a definition on this occasion. Readers can jump on the net and find whatever definitions they like. I’m sharing someRead More

Change or not

A review of posts on this blog revealed that I have dealt with change before. In this post I aim to go deeper. This post is opinion only and not advice to any person. [See disclaimer at the end] Previous relevant posts (not a complete list): Emotion – the mainRead More

The nature of the flow of thought

An unusual individual has given free-willing consent to publishing this conversation.

Is planning a useless activity?

What a strange question? After all, everybody knows and believes that ‘planning‘ is a good thing and it must be useful. Having thought about things people say and what they do, I have to say that overall it is a useless activity. Should I say, “Don’t get me wrong…. “?Read More

What exactly is evidence?

I’ve touched on evidence before but I had not actually dealt with ‘what it is’. I also explored what ‘facts’ were. None of the following means to diminish the value of tangible evidence. In other posts I would have shown what people do with hard evidence when they do getRead More

Digging into logical fallacy

It’s usually a good idea to define what one is talking about. Fallacy is derived from the Latin word, fallacia which means trick, deceit or fraud. Logical fallacy is an argument containing faulty reasoning. Also note that ‘reasoning’ itself depends on applications of the rules of logic – which standRead More

Turning 10 seconds into 5 minutes

For a long time, I’ve been observing how little people read things. Ahhhhh… but what does ‘read‘ or ‘reading‘ mean? The best definition I’ve found is, “the cognitive process of understanding a written linguistic message.” In this post I’m referring to things that people ought to have read i.e. variousRead More

Audible v Scribd

This is for ‘bookworms’. 👀😂 If others don’t know what this means – tough, Google is not your friend! But I say be cautious. This is not a recommendation to purchase anything. I derive no advantages in the past present or future by sharing the above information.
