Proof positive that I speak in a foreign language.

This is England. They speak English over here. It is the national language. I live in England. I grew up speaking English in another land. It’s my only language. I then spend over 30 years living in England speaking the English I knew from another land (that was an EnglishRead More

What is thinking?

In other posts I’ve looked into various errors of thinking. However, I have not actually looked deeply enough into what thinking is. So I’m thinking about thinking. Most people think that, “It’s what humans do.” Some also think that animals think. I’ve often wondered about that because I’ve seen catsRead More

The truth is almost dead in a modern world

In general people say that they value the truth. However, when a would-be truth is unpalatable or does not fit with their individual values or knowledge-base, it is not allowed. I’m speaking in general of course, so unable to cater for obvious exceptions. The word ‘truth’ has become closer toRead More

Are self-help materials a waste of time?

The way most people will answer the question is like – ‘Well it depends…‘ or ‘They may help some people but not everybody‘. And that right there represents the market for people who will more than likely purchase self-help books (SHB). Now calm down – I’m not saying that SHBsRead More

They power of ‘they’.

For many years I’ve been referring to the power of the herd instinct. Nobody believes me of course – because I am a NOBODY! That’s fine cuz I don’t need people (the herd) to validate what I might say or think. History proves me right. In essence when people takeRead More

Motivation is a trap

In conversations with people, I often here the following kinds of statements: I’m just not motivated to do [blah blah]. I know I need to do it. It’s the right thing to do but I don’t have the discipline. I’m not organised. Maybe as time catches up I’ll find theRead More

Adults are actually children

Okay – so in this post I’m not going to go into the hard evidence (which I have), to support my perspective. Why? Because I’m not here to convince ‘everybody’ or ‘anybody’  of anything. My perspective is based on my real experience of people over the last few months inRead More

The nature of trust

If you who reads this thought you were gonna get a lecture on ‘trust’, you’re in the wrong place. Google is your friend – not me! I’ve done the Google thing and I’m not satisfied with what I read out there. So – I’m putting my own words to theRead More

From no longer a friend

I’ve lost count now, the number of posts I’ve made on the nature of ‘friends’ and ‘friendship’. I’ll hyperlink to some of them at the end. If you jump straight into the conversation below you’ll miss the context, which I explain in the next paragraph. The Story This is aRead More

Schrödinger’s microwave!

Some will have heard of Schrödinger’s Cat  and some will not have heard of it. Those who have not heard of it may reach for Google or YouTube – but they may be too dim to understand any of that. Oooo.. how condescending! You can’t speak reality these days onRead More
