Reading is dead

What a bold assertion – ‘Reading is dead’? I’ll explain what I mean as I go on. Experiences in the last few years have led me to conclude that people actually: Don’t read Don’t find information to read of their own volition. Even if they read, quickly report ‘It’s confusing‘Read More

For the love of cliché

I’m pretty sure some will be jumping on the net to read up what cliché means. Nobody is getting a dissertation here today. To start off net-crawlers, go here to read up. The one that has been getting to me more in the last 2 years is ‘.. to beRead More

Dogs and lower animals may solve complex problems

Yep. That’s what I was told in a real FTF conversation tonight 2021-09-04 between 20:00 and 21:20PM. Some must wonder why I even engage in those kinds of discussions. Well, I discover how the average human being thinks. It’s stupid basically – the patterns of thought – and the grossRead More

This proves it!

From an online forum is the following. DB: Well done! What is a blaeberry?! CW – replying to DB: For those who don’t know howto – select word with mouse, right click, then click search option that appears. For those who don’t know how to select text: left click mouse,Read More

Mindmaps and diagrams

As some will know, I’m very fond of creating mindmaps and flowcharts. I think they provide a very flexible way of looking at how things flow and interact. Sometimes I’m not sure of how exactly my ideas would come together. So, I’d put them into a mindmap and move thingsRead More

Ordinary world – I will learn to survive

In your youth you enjoy a song for the way it sounds. Across many songs from the 70s and 80s, I realise that I had not paid much attention to lyrics. In my later years I discover much deeper meanings. I now pay attention to the ‘words’. The 80s wasRead More

The support people seek

Lately I’ve been thinking about ‘support’. As always I ask, “What does it mean?” What do people think it means? What people don’t consider in providing or receiving support is that it can be dysfunctional or destructive. The reasons why the latter are almost never considered or weighed in theRead More

Calm detachment – four ends of the rope

Lots of people make decisions that are driven by emotions, and wrapped in emotion.  Just to be clear, I’m not saying that such decisions are necessarily wrong. It is well known from Damasio’s research that emotions are an activator of some sort. Whilst emotions can drive actions and decisions, decision-makingRead More

Manipulation

This is not an academic exploration of what manipulation means. Read that again. You don’t get a ‘balanced perspective’. You get unbalanced originality. If you don’t like that bugger off now! The trouble with words is that people want perfect definitions. The reality is that, it is rare for wordsRead More
