Hacking reality

I’m obviously on a roll, with the topic of reality. From mid-June I’ve looked at various aspects of ‘reality’ from psychological and philosophical perspectives. Tough – I’m not providing links to those posts. What – everybody wants to be spoon fed. It ain’t happening! So – in the last weekRead More

Why is reality a hard place?

Reality is a topic I’ve visited before on this blog. However, having searched the site I find that I have not explored ‘why reality is a hard place’. A few days ago I explored the blur between fantasy and reality. In that post I explained how I saw reality. So,Read More

The Dealer

The Dealer is a song with profound meanings for ‘everybody’. Some fool – the resident in the back of my mind  – is likely to ask ‘What does it mean for you?‘.  Tough – I’m not important nor are my feelings or past. I don’t tick like that. I’ll lookRead More

The Perfect Mate

This is an exploration Star Trek Next Generation Season 5 Episode 21 – The Perfect Mate. I strongly recommend viewing it in full (Netflix) before reading this commentary – because this is a movie spoiler. You have been warned. And the preview video below (no sound other than music), mayRead More

COVID laziness

Laziness is a topic I’ve touched on many times before. The recent pandemic of COVID-19 has brought out some interesting features about laziness. I’ll make some sweeping generalisations about people (which means there are bound to be exceptions aplenty). The most startling of all is that when people are paidRead More

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

Blinding lights!

Ooops… terrible – I’ve got hooked on this song: Blinding Lights by The Weeknd. Fiiiiine – most people have never heard of them – even though the song is rated the best so far for 2020! Keep listening to Mr Trump – instead. I’m so not interested in the band,Read More

A fairy tale of lies

Some will become obsessed with the video below, and unearthing my supposed underlying motivations for posting it. I well know that others will invoke their own suppositions which will form their reality foisted up on me e.g. “you’re just  obsessed with her.. don’t tell lies!“.  I’ll leave that right there, cuzRead More

How do people value other people?

In these COVID-19 times it has become more obvious how people value the company of other people. Socialisation is a very big issue. People will risk their lives to attend fast food outlets, DIYs, beaches etc – when the lockdown has not be properly lifted. This made me think deeper.Read More

Virus teaches people about the true essentials of life – or not

I am thankful for the COVID-19 virus attack on the world – though many lives will be lost – a terrible cost – because we will be taught as a society a different sort of social contract with our leaders, and people around us. We also will be reminded aboutRead More
