Pre-determinants – your ignorance is bliss.

For some time I’ve been occupied with things that pre-determine what we think or do. I’ve often referred to patterns and cultures as pre-determinative. Then I looked into attitudes. As I go on, I think more about this. The uneducated and dim will obviously baulk at all this. After all,Read More

The kick – Arkell v Pressdram

This is a story that involved a fair amount of my time. If you’re the sort of person who has a dog to bathe, go do that. I’m so not interested in whether you who may read this has a dog or not. Points first summary: I interfaced with anRead More

I’m hounded by idiots

This post is of an anonymised online chat conversation I had on 14th October 2020. It went on for over 3 hours. I was doing other things in between. I was determined to learn something, though I knew I was dealing with idiots. The problem is that these idiots hadRead More

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

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

Fallacy: Relative Privation

As usual this is triggered by my interactions in the background, with one or two who are gluttons for punishment – with exceptionally thick callouses on their backs! 😂 Oh yes – the beatings over the years has caused this. Obviously they derive some ‘masochistic’ pleasure from this! Just toRead More

Problem solving

As usual, it’s some discussion in the background that motivates me to think deeply about these things. But I draw on my experience of how people approach problems in general. I’ve been trying to extract some broad themes across a range of ‘problems’. So, I’m not focusing on mathematical, ITRead More

The COVID push

To be clear at the outset, I do not like the COVID-19 virus. It has caused a large number of deaths, chronic disabilities and economic chaos.  Technology & work Right – once that’s out of the way, what I will say is that COVID has pushed all sorts ofRead More

Not enough time?

One of the commonest words I hear from my close circle of contacts is ‘later‘. The next is ‘I’ll check’ – like do I need to know?  Why not check first and then say ‘done it’? I don’t know. Jeeez! Maybe people feel they are being polite or  some nonsense.Read More
