The nature of the flow of thought

An unusual individual has given free-willing consent to publishing this conversation. Some will be obsessed with XY’s and JS’s characteristics, identities and when all this happened – which is to miss other important things in this conversation. Human thought/thinking is a sequence of ideas and assertions using language. Its flowRead 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

Time wasting junk

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been on an e-cleaning binge! That means I’ve been sorting out loads of electronic files of all types and cleaning up electronic messages. Did I say ‘electronic messages‘? Just checking. Yes – I did! Some fool wants to know what does ‘electronic messages’ mean.Read More

EXTREME STUPIDITY

Righhhhhtt!! So you might say I’m on a roll on this preoccupation with stupidity. Not surprising really, when you think that there is a fictional character living within me, which I often refer too as ‘stupid’ – and with whom occasionally I end up in ‘stupid’ heated debates out here.Read More

I mentioned this situation in my previous blog, where I was almost diagnosed with sleep walking by a hotel manager. Some may have thought that I was joking. I wasn’t! The explanatory theories will preoccupy many – as if I can’t conjure up these too! The facts: I’m at aRead More

It’s official: people are stupid!

Well, well – it’s been a funny old day! LOL. I was just at a meat market in a big city and in a 60-second conversation with a meat trader – he told me “..people are stupid! They don’t know what they’re doing or where they’re going.” This chap ownsRead More

Everybody

The following I’ve been told about ‘everybody’. Everybody: Needs somebody. Needs friends and confidants. Gets sick at some point. Is born and dies. Has good in their hearts. Is capable of evil. Breaths air, sleeps, eats, drinks water, and goes to the toilet. Has brains. Is free to do whatRead More

Who is Jordan Peterson – or anybody else?

Jordan Peterson shot into international fame recently, in the last two years especially. So now ‘everybody’ is asking, “Who is Jordan Peterson?” If you (whoever you may be) thinks this post is gonna tell you, then you might as well leap off a cliff right now.  I’m more concerned withRead More
