Reflections And Thoughts On Existence So Far

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 20:34:41 -0500

Whatever the cause and effect, I know that it is what I make it, and then some. This article is somewhat autobiography, and somewhat of an exposition of my philosophy of life, and a little more than that.

Let Your Intuition Take Care of You - Listen Intently, Summon and Solicit What Comes From Within

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 15:07:07 -0500

***Let your ability to intuit adventures, happenstances or new events guide you! Your intuition is what the Divine Creator gave you when you are unable to apply logic or sound reasoning to what your gut is feeling! My advice to myself as well as to others, because my eyes and hears need to hear and be reminded too, that just like our body heals without us knowing how or why, so does our mind and our heart heal, protect, respect, revere and take care of us too! We don't know all of the bolts and nuts that happen to restore our bodies and immune system, though we do know that the body and its systems are always and in all ways attempting to take care of us, and renew or restore us to better health- REMEMBER- that's what your intuition does for your mental and emotional health as well! Is not the Divine Creator a blessing! He created us to protect, defend, guide and understand everything even beyond what words or logic can express- SIMPLY ASTOUNDING!!!~

Don't Hold Back

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 13:45:06 -0500

Sometimes we know we are holding ourselves back. Sometimes we blame it on others, on situations or circumstances. Most of the time, with a little effort, we really can push through the obstructions. All it takes is a little awareness and a little... wait for it... courage.

Slay the Scarcity Monsters

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 13:44:45 -0500

I'm here to tell you one of the most important lessons I've ever learned in this lifetime, one I certainly didn't learn in school. Are you ready for this? Are you sitting down? Because this is BIG.

Seek the Light of Enlightenment From the Sun or From Sun Flares That Stare at You to Inspire You

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 07:00:16 -0500

***There is never really a good reason to let the light of kindness set before you have enjoyed the sunrise or experienced the enlightenment of sun flares that care about your well-being. It is in the flickers or flares of light that we toil in the soil and ground ourselves into the earth. Being or getting grounded into the earth is about as easy as planting a seed during the spring planting season. Plant seeds in fertile soil. Planning and planting comes with toil in the soil, effort and at long last harvest season readily comes under the flickers of pronounced sunlight! Our Heavenly father cares so much about you, more than you or me can even imagine! It is that amazing light that lets us live, eat, sleep, breathe and carry on like grand planters that planted winning seeds that can grow, plant or manifest anything that we value!~

The Game, That Game, And The Life

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 06:54:35 -0500

Winning is a state of mind and reality, not so much what is going on outside of us. It does not matter how we win or lose, but how we play the game is not just a bromide or foolish "old wife sentence", but, the most genuine of realities. I will explain my position.

Do You Know How Risky Your Life Is?

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 09:50:55 -0500

The risks keep increasing over time and make the human life more miserable and unpleasant. All these are self-created in the name of comfort and happiness. In other words, development comes at a heavy cost of life itself.

Resurrection Day - A Celebration of Agricultural Festivals and a Monumental Historical Milestone

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 08:44:57 -0500

***You may humbly agree with me, or at least avail me the opportunity to speak to the historical significance that the Resurrection represents; Just like Jonas was cast away in the belly of a great fish (whale to be exact), he did return and was restored, revived and deemed to be alive after three days- that was the first known resurrection. The most amazing, fulfilling and significant Resurrection came as the Messiah, or the one without sin, served as," The Propitiation of Sin," and was cast away in the heart of earth, that is so overwhelming to accept, though no less, accepted without (?) Question- at least by me.

Earth - A Beautiful, Bountiful, Wonderful and Remarkable Place to Live a Productively Colorful Life

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 08:08:19 -0500

***Be comfortable in the knowledge that you are remarkably appreciated by the Universe for all of your contributions and efforts. Our planet too was designed with passion with boundless awe-inspiring and remarkable appeal. An example, one of the Seven wonders of the world, the Egyptian Pyramids to name a few. The mountains, the hills, the daffodils; the ocean breezes, the Antarctic freezes, all wonderful and gloriously designed: Our beautiful,planet: Earth. It's one of kind, all ours and can only be enjoyed while living a life in peace, unity and enjoying the copious amounts of opportunities that engaging your own innate talents and passions can provide. (?)-Question what direction your life should take. This is the one and only true way to receive your best and highest personal outcome in response to internal questioning.:~)**What you perceive to be your highest calling was sent especially to you- check your mobile phone and see who sent it to you:The DM-(direct message), was sent directly from the Divine Creator. Your life purpose is to be happy, live life productively and to greet the planet daily by doing your very best personal, individual effort in everything that you engage.~

Jealousy Is a Fallacy - There Is Never a Reasonable Reason to Exhibit Jealousy Towards Another

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 07:10:36 -0500

*JEALOUSY IS A FALLACY THAT ONLY RECEIVES FUEL FOR THE FIRE BY A LACK OF EFFORT AND ENERGY. Getting off your duff is all that it requires for you to pick yourself up by your bootstraps, cut the procrastination crap- It's just as simple and easy as that! Get to work! Whether you WRITE AND DESIGN YOUR OWN BODY OF WORD WORKS AND CREATIONS, or sing and dance it's your passion- fashion your passion in the manner or form that works best for you! The world that you have created for yourself is watching you and it will greatly reward your renewed, in tune wonderful, original attempts and genuine effort tremendously!~

Perform the Role of Your Life Purpose As If Performing on a Broadway Studio

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 07:44:46 -0500

*To perform what you do naturally is always the most sincere performance that you can give or provide. Giving or performing for an engaging or receptive audience of great friends and well-wishers is exciting! A real life performance is sharing natural skills for the entire globe to see and recognize a brilliant and exceptional performance of outstanding attributes and capabilities as if seen onscreen. Performing is precisely what people and animals do! They enjoy performing for a broad stream of people, places and events, performed in their own way and appreciate their glamour respectively. The life cycle of the planets, plants and animals is the way that we live, survive and enjoy a more exuberant and colorful life-style. A Broadway performance witnessed live and in person is much better than studio quality. The same can be said about the lives that you and I live. We live life as if we are the main characters performing on a stage. It's captivating and the actions are very real for you and me and have a significant amount of expenses, costume changes, and even a few too many dress rehearsals!~

Life Is a Multi-Color Assortment of Pencils With Points and Colorful Experiences to Design & Create

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 21:12:38 -0500

**If we were to all view life like a box of multi-colored, assorted, interdependent, related, comfortable rainbow of beautiful, colorful, fabulous and diversified ways of achieving our means, then we could all get back to the business of life and live more happily! Just like there was once only black and white television, then BAM! there was color television. It caught on quickly, because it worked better and was a more natural way of viewing the world. It became the lasting trend and the new normal. Create a fun,new colorful outlook and watch your world and adventures soar to greater heights than ever experienced before. Welcome inclusion and diversity as the global way to prosper and make a more productive living~

Children Will Fix the Future of Our Current Mistakes for All Nations Around the World to Live & See

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 07:46:05 -0600

***Folks our children are watching us and they don't like the discord that they see. The next generation of our posterity is so much more aware of our fears, apprehensions, and anxiety and they will try extremely hard to help us and they do help us. If only we allowed them to do what they do naturally, which is to give and show love, care and compassion freely- The youth nowadays is more advanced and in tune with themselves and their emotional and physical needs. Finally, we, as the current generation, have an opportunity to breathe a sigh of relief! There are so many young people these days that don't know what life was like before the Internet or WiFi was ever available and it's really amazing. Why do I find it amazing, you ask? Because of the initiative of children everywhere, they find research, they write, they know how to find answers for others as well as for themselves. You might even venture to say that they work well in groups and are eager to share education and information with one another.~

Bull Hills Ascension Inspires Renewal of Mindset, Climb or Ascend Renewed Thoughts and Actions Daily

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 12:01:13 -0600

***Decide to climb and ascend a mountain or hill, or to challenge any feat or other perceived obstacle while on the climb to success. Know that you can overcome many mountains or valleys in the form of challenges that present themselves every year. For as long as we are alive, we have an opportunity to reap renewed abilities to see and experience life more fortuitously and organically. Let nature's organic way of meeting or surpassing challenges inspire you. Volcanoes serve a life-given purpose, natural fires serve a purpose, life and death serves a purpose, though not readily or easily seen on the surface. Natural events serve to preserve, conserve, restore, renew or to redirect the wind, land, water or elements of all the earth and its inhabitants, including me and you.~

Carry Your World of Online Activity in Honesty - Are Your Children Proud of How You Conduct Yourself

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 21:49:47 -0600

***Carry your world in honesty. Succeed successfully and peacefully in your online life by your own will of character, individual way of expression, attention-to-detail, hard work, honesty, integrity and ability to filter and deliver your words correctly. Quitters never win and Winners NEVER QUIT! ONLY A fool competes by plagiarism or by unlawful theft through stalking or spying into the private life of a poet or writer. Show your ability to work hard and avoid the greedy or deceitful need that can land you or your business in severe trouble. Keep yourself in alignment by knowing that the harbinger is coming, the judgment of honest actions will bare new fruit for you. Look for the signs of the harbinger by the positive things that keep happening while you are working or promoting your product or online service.

Keep Your Marbles - When Unfairly Challenged, Keep Your Sanity, Value It Like an Unbreakable Diamond

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 13:39:25 -0600

*** Be apprised that just like a marble can only be broken or shattered by another marble of similar form, so are you and so am I the strongest marbles in the bunch! When thinking of marbles,diamonds also come to mind. Diamonds whether circular, oval or sliced and chipped can only be cut by another diamond. **You are the brightest, most faceted fascinating diamond of the land and nobody or nothing can take your cut, color, clarity or carat away from you! Nobody can make you unwillingly toss your marbles in defeat. Seek victory! We are strong, bold, multi-faceted and shine brilliantly amidst burning embers of jealousy and flames of dishonesty, still we prevail! Diamonds come in many forms, just like marbles do. There are different sizes of marbles, different shapes, colors and also different values. I remember my older brother having a large bag full of marbles that had classifications by size and shape, and specific names like; boulders, big mothers and many more different names! Playing marbles is practice for playing the game that we call life. Keep on aiming at your mark, aiming with precision until SWOOSH! BAM! You hit the marbles/obstacles out of the park!

A Matter of Perception

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 18:21:46 -0600

*** As you enter the gates that lead to more self-understanding be aware that you may be shocked by what you discover. Recognizing the true nature of people and the way that they see a need for greed be apprised that they just may target you or me. Abnormal and heightened greed or stalking is mental illness or mental instability, the need for unfair or abnormal ways to gain control of someone is completely insane! Mental illness knows no boundaries and is known to cause others pain and heartache and is a game played by an insane way of thinking. Hurtful and painful actions are taken against a person that the insane feel can be easily exploited, sold, or made to hurt psychologically. Psychopathy is a real threat. All this is done by an insane way of processing jealousy, greed or covetousness towards another human being.. Making another person or other people suffer for no apparent or logical reason is an extreme example of the disease known as psychopathy Enter the gates that lead to understanding question things that are abnormal or out of character. Get answers and resolution for obscenely brazen actions taken against you for no apparently logical reason.~

History: My Philosophy On Life, Death And Geneaology

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 16:25:10 -0600

Some of us can have the greatest backgrounds, and it is a coin toss between living up to that background successfully or being total failures that do not make the mark, even. Some of us can have the worst possible backgrounds in life and all of the disadvantages and still become complete winners ourselves. The key is not in the genes, but in the persistence naturally within us all. Some use it, some do not.

They Talk About Sustainability - Really, What Intellectual Fraud And Hypocrisy

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 04:52:16 -0600

The buzz words today are quite interesting but so ill-defined that they can mean anything you want them too, allowing one to prove their point, no matter what their point is. In fact, it's getting so bad that when people use these terms, there is an unspoken rule that you are not allowed to challenge them on it or else you are a bigot, racist, homophobe, or some sort of hater. What are these words or terms I speak of? Well, let's discuss two of them shall we?

Cherry Blossoms Are an Awesome Example of the Power of Nature, Working and Growing in Fertile Soil

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 07:47:32 -0600

*** Cherry Blossoms are an awesome example of nature that's hard-at-work, birthing new ideas, thus potentially expanding into more understanding or growing and springing into action. Sometimes nature may recycle an event, remove dead weeds that are zapping your energy or restore a thought in the archives until the need to resurface arises. It takes a lot of effort and continuous motion to harvest an organic and joyfully happy garden. It takes movement and action to realize your dreams. Learn more methods for disarming and disabling self-imposed obstacles. Think of amazing feats or accomplishments that were achieved by regular, industrious, decisive individuals? They weren't any more special than me or you. The only difference was their mindset, and the fact that they took habitual action. They learned quickly to continue working. They didn't quit trying to be awesome in their attempts, no matter what others told them, this is what sets them apart and why they are known as the experts in their industry. They removed energy- zapping, brain-draining people, mindsets and habits from their daily lives. They cleaned out the weeds and got rid of the influence of sabotaging people, thoughts and allowed empowering thoughts and inclinations to guide them.~

*** Harvest, polish, plant and wear the jewel that serves you or identifies your attributes the best.

Follow your curiosity and harvest knowledge, attain patience, appreciate the pearls of wisdom gained by cultivating your life with vigor. Take the time to laugh a little bit more; enjoy the parody that we call life. The purposes of life pursuits are oftentimes hidden, unclear and not distinctly seen on the surface. The importance of cultivating, harvesting and knowing your life purpose is ultimately your decision alone. Whether accomplishing pursuits or dreams, do so intensely. Cultivating life is very similar to making a treasure find. What actions did you take that built character or sustained patience? It has been stated over and over again that life is a journey. Knowing that life is a journey,also be apprised that like all journeys there are a multitude of hills and valleys to climb.~

Life Is Like Climbing a Ladder to Success - Seek Heavenly Assistance, Climb Each Step With Dignity

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 07:10:24 -0600

***Life is really all about knowing that it takes time to climb every step before reaching the proverbial ladder to success. Embrace the learning curve, review your efforts, you will need to constantly fix, amend, correct or refocus your purpose. A lot of time, perseverance, hard work and consistently climbing and ascending one step at a time, is essential to reach the top of the mountain. You are not only climbing. you are learning and earning self-respect, integrity and well-rewarded experience along the journey.

Happiness (Being Unattached To Fear And "Normality")

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 20:48:23 -0600

Aristotle said that happiness is the highest cause and reality. I do not know what that means to you, but I do know what that means to me: It means living fearlessly free of what others think and eschewing normality in favor of a highly individualistic life that has no erroneous zones or comfort zones. I get the term "erroneous zones" from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, and the idea of the comfort zone from Abraham Maslow and his pyramid of human needs.

God Vs. Science and the Limits of Logic

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 18:25:03 -0600

Can logic discern the origin of existence? One would suppose logic could reveal important truths on this question. However, could this question pose a quandary so fundamental that logic falters? Now we may, and may often, buttress our core beliefs on the nature of God verses the reach of Science, with logic about the origin of existence. We should thus take a moment to check if logic provides a clear path to uncovering that origin.

He Who Hates, Hates Himself

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 11:21:47 -0600

But here's the catch, once you cross that boundary, once you fall into that bottomless well, there's no going back.

Could You Handle Being Alone For All Eternity?

We know that those put into solitary confinement in prison often lose their minds over time having no one to socialize with. That's unfortunate indeed, and it surely has something to do with the human psyche and our socialization with our fellow man. Not long ago, I had a conversation with an intellectual about the concept of an afterlife and how that might be possible where the consciousness continues. He pondered that if there was not a heaven where people go to be together, and there was only a continuation of the mind in the ether then would one be all alone for eternity, and if so, how could the mind cope with that? Good question.

Some Will Condemn Ayn Rand And Proselytize Plato

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 06:59:06 -0600

Many would say that Ayn Rand's philosophy is amiss and then point to Plato for their philosophical wisdom. Not long ago, I had such a conversation with a very well-educated fellow and think tanker type. He condemned Ayn Rand and took out of context an event in one of her stories that she was in favor or secret societies. Still, the thought that Ayn Rand would applaud 'secret societies' is a misread of her views. Remember Ayn Rand was very much against the elitists and socialists. I don't need to defend her, I don't really care, her legacy speaks for itself, but since you asked.

Before Criticizing Ayn Rand - Maybe You Might Better Understand Her Philosophy First?

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 07:04:51 -0600

Many have been told that Ayn Rand's objectivism is a flawed way to think. I actually disagree with such criticism, in fact, I find those who make such allegations first, off don't understand her philosophy very, have been brainwashed by socialist forces in education, and can't argue their points well enough to be taken seriously. So if you are in any of those categories, this article is for you.

The Secret of Secrets

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 06:58:51 -0600

The Chinese believe that "if you are my friend, you will share information and knowledge with me." And, perhaps this is why they don't feel so bad about stealing intellectual property, after all the US says China is a favored trading partner and friend. Think of it this way, would unnecessarily keep a secret from your spouse, unless maybe it was a security clearance duty to do so? Friends don't keep secrets from friends unless that information could hurt them. Let's talk shall we?

Life Only Gets Better When We Make It Better

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 16:58:38 -0600

We, as consciousness, are as happy and fulfilled as we make up our minds to be. With that said, I lifted the title of this article from a book I once read a few times by George Ivanovich Gurdjieff called "Life Is Real, Only Then, When "I Am"".

Change, Reformation, And New Thinking

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 06:54:34 -0600

This article is based on a concept I understand and have about life and existence. When situations get stagnant and do not work: Change, reformation and new thinking is forced upon you as a necessary function or death happens to you in some form if this change, reformation and new thinking is not accepted. Sure it all sounds like an extreme situation, but, is it not an extreme situation when change is needed?

Reality And Fantasy

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 18:24:11 -0600

I call this article reality and fantasy, with a genuine emphasis on reality because "what is" is genuinely relative unless you are perceiving honesty as it is in genuine objective reality, and "truth" is what we create from opinions and incomplete facts anyhow. I got inspired to write this article also by "the Bible of Nature" and not by all the man-made bibles written as "truths perceived". So, get your thinking caps on and do not just read, but understand.

Power (The Transcendence Of Space And TIme)

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 19:00:26 -0500

Life is as good or great as we make it. With that said, what we do with our time and our space is purely our business with the universe. Despite what religion and scientific "reality" may imply.

We Can Simply Live Our Lives in the Blink of an Eye When We Pay Attention to the Sounds of Nature

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 09:56:19 -0500

Soft, soothing, simple melodies that's what brings about peace and a tranquil atmosphere. Ever wonder what it is about humanity that responds so well to songs,words that rhyme and the serene sound of bubbling brooks? Well, I most certainly do. And without further ado, I will share my perspective with you... I humbly, or perhaps dumbly believe that with so much advancement in technology, we actually consider it a treat to listen to the soft, untamed sounds of nature. Or something that emulates what we seek in a natural setting. How can our lives be a little bit more simplified in the blink of any eye? If we just try to get back in touch with our inner child that craves to have a heyday and play in nature, the elements we can simply our lives in the blink of an eye.

Take Care of Him

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 15:21:30 -0500

The last thing Jacques wanted was to get involved in a relationship. When it came to romance, "I've been burned more often than a fireman," he said, grinning. With a head of thick curls and neatly-trimmed beard, Jacques was ruggedly handsome, and it was easy to see why women were attracted to him. But Jacques was adamant - he didn't want to fall in love! Unfortunately, he was about to learn a lesson: Nobody gives orders to the Universe, especially when the Universe has plans for you.

Forget About Nepotism In Government - What About After Graduation Private University Networking

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 07:07:51 -0500

Why isn't anyone talking about the lock-down that Harvard and Yale Graduates have on OUR government? Think about it - past, current and future presidents, elite multi-term members of the House and Senate, major department heads and even our supreme court. Check out their resumes sometime? Is this what our founding fathers had in mind - certainly not! How often have we been forced to choose between presidential candidates or Supreme Court Justices when the choices are all from the same schools? That is too much concentrated power, the revolving door is also a problem - Wall Street Firms and the CEOs of the largest corporations - controlling, well, controlling everything.

In the Face of Absurdity

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 10:14:41 -0500

Cable news broadcasts non-stop. While the constant political gyrations may depress, or entertain, but in the end inform, the reporting on the deep tragedies - on hunger, war, crime, devastation, natural disasters - touches and saddens us. But then comes a commercial, for maybe softer pillows. The incongruity, the suffering and death of real tragedies, followed by the cheering spokesperson for better pillows, likely assaults our mind. How do we deal with this absurdity? What response can we realistically have to the catastrophes the befall our fellow humans. Take a few minutes, consider some actions suggested in the article, and take measure of what you, and I, can and ought do.

The Work Of A Thinker Versus The Foolishness Of A Drifter

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 11:56:28 -0500

It may seem fun to drift joyfully through life "without a care in the world" and having nothing to do to earn anything, but there is not any real joy in that kind of existence, just resigned contentment that you will have it easy without having to "go up" or "grow up". Stopping the drifting, however hard or easy it may seem to do so is the start of going up and growing up wherever you are.

A Told Sentence To A Stranger Isn't Always A Sentence Wanted To Be Heard

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:33:41 -0500

Will the giver take a no or negative reply as discrimination, racism, hate or disgust? Will the recipient take the question as bothersome, snarkyness, intrusive or of no interest? Will they both take the encounter as socially acceptable, a new friendship and joyous? Will the masks of both be on or off so either becomes aware or not aware of the others true self? A sentence from one stranger to another can bring about a social feeling but what social feeling will be felt?

The Symbolic and Philosophical Meanings of The Parts of The Asante Stool

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 08:03:08 -0500

The stool is the central symbol of Akan politics among the Akans in the southern part of Ghana. It is the repository of all ancient traditions and the spirits of the ancestors. It is believed to symbolize the soul of the society. It serves as a symbolic link between the common people in the society and their leader who may be a king or chief. The Golden stool is said to contain the spirit of the Asante nation. It is used as a symbol of the unification of many Akan people under the Asante kingdom. The parts or components of the stool represent the elements that make up a perfect society. The female stool which is believed to be the first stool designed and produced in the Ghanaian society is the best example of a stool that makes up a perfect society. Therefore, our discussion will delve into the philosophical meanings behind each of the components or design parts of the female stool.

Honesty Will Set You Free, Not So Much The Truth: Reality

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 15:33:58 -0500

When I think about life, I do not think about the truth. The truth is what normal people think about to their own detriment. Honesty and reality are where it is at. If honesty and reality were not where it were at, then we would all have great instead of just boring, unsatisfying lives filled with the truth.

The Truth Seems Hard In Present Time, The Truth Is Easy In All Future Reality

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 06:54:56 -0500

Recently, I was faced with a dilemma. A reality that I would have to work and wait to get what I really want instead of "cash out" in the present for less. Well, I decided to work and wait, and "recently" is a time I could consider about twenty years ago.

Why Does God Allow Evil and Suffering?

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 12:50:43 -0500

God and evil. The issue vexes and bedevils us. Why would a benevolent, powerful God permit so much horrendous pain and malevolence? In a conversation, a believing Scholar lays out for a skeptical Sage a response. Our universe and our existence offer significant value, offers the Scholar, and we benefit from a comprehendable world and are blessed with a will free to follow our own course. And, continues the Scholar, in a real actuality, even an omnipotent God faces logical and physical constraints. The Sage ponders but in the end judges that God could have created better. The reader can decide their own view.

Heroes And Villains: Understanding The Criminal And Virtuous Minds

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 15:13:33 -0500

Criminals want the unearned, the virtuous genuinely want the earned. Without fear or ego properties, I say this: Reality always goes to the virtuous mind, however "easy" and "fun" at times life with the criminal mind may initially look or the person who honestly pays gets to play without fear of "skeletons in the closet" so to write.

We cannot expect happiness in the way we accept normally. Realistic happiness can be equated with effectiveness in life. Indeed, we cannot live beyond our genuine capacity and "play God".

In Support of Thomas Hobbes' 'Theory of Everything As Body in Motion'

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:58:12 -0500

EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD AS BODY IN MOTION - Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) argued systematically for materialism as a solution to the mind-body problem. Hobbes argued that everything in the world, including our thoughts and the states of our minds, can in principle be explained in terms of one thing and one thing only: matter in motion. Thoughts, for example, can be explained, he argued, as matter in motion in the brain.

The Good, And What It Has To Do With Reality

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 06:24:30 -0500

My interpretation of Plato saying is that "Normal humanity cannot be trusted to do the right thing." My interpretation of Aristotle saying is that "Greater humanity can be trusted to seek the highest cause for itself which is happiness." Which is true? Which is honest? Which is real? Even I grapple with these questions at times, especially when something tragic or miserable happens. But, I get this genuine answer that is realistic for me: Everyone wants the right thing to happen, but everyone wants personal happiness and peace also with that right thing.

Conspiracy Theorists

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 08:14:53 -0500

Just Thinking, I Will Take Action After I Do Think, Though

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 06:18:25 -0500

It is always good to take a moment to go inside and think deeply before taking an action. My Mother always says to think deeply twice and take action once sort of jokingly. But, the most powerful idea there is could be to take action after deep thought, though.

Everybody Has A Goal (Shadows Of The Soul)

Tue, 24 May 2016 05:56:08 -0500

Sure, the definite major purpose of life is to achieve what is needed and wanted in it, most definitely. Realistically though, we chase shadows of what we think is what we want before we get what we really want. This article is about being definite and realistic about what we need and want, whatever the situation, because goal achievement, not goal setting comes down to being definite.

Angels and the Flow of Communication

Wed, 11 May 2016 06:59:41 -0500

The concept of angels (or messengers) regards the flow of communication that are sent and received between players and related (although distant) areas within the entire system of game universes. What is most important about the idea of angels is the fact that they transmit messages or information about a player, an area within a field of play (reports), or an entire game universe in a state of play (status updates).

Individual and Team Play

Wed, 11 May 2016 06:57:17 -0500

The game of earth is a teaching reality and each player is a living game piece in a world defined by the universal intelligence network, which is the spiritual infrastructure underlying the physical universe. Man is the central game piece that the soul as player operates in the form of matter and energy through space and change. Man as a unique intersection of soul and animal must unite these two elements to shape a personality prepared for a totally immersive role-playing experience. In the game of earth, the mental, emotional and physical components of the experience drown the player in a foreign type of play.

Maps Within Games

Wed, 11 May 2016 06:52:14 -0500

Belief systems are maps or descriptive pronouncements concerning various paths through life. All of them emphasize some aspect of existence and magnify it throughout the whole. But each is only a piece of the puzzle and they individually represent one approach to soul development. All of them provide some portion of knowledge about soul progression on earth and offer players a sense of direction.

Experience, Illusion or Reality?

Mon, 09 May 2016 07:51:40 -0500

Game physics refers to the laws governing the programming of a game within a self-contained universe. It is these laws that govern how the players within the worlds of that universe experience the objects and the objects behavior of that universe. Game physics dictates the actions and reactions of the objects in its own world such as how objects of different densities interact. For example, what happens to objects when they are unsupported, do they float or fall? Game physics determines qualities in the field of play such as what constitutes friction, velocity, texture, collision effects, and atmospheric changes.

Assume Nothing

Mon, 09 May 2016 06:14:54 -0500

Perhaps you've heard the wise advice; "don't assume anything" or the "assume nothing" version? Well, let me tell you the latter is far wiser. You see, you can take the phrase "assume nothing" both figuratively and literally and it turns out to be both great advice and scientifically correct. Let me explain this in laymen's terms.

The Good Life Is The Honestly Lived Life

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 06:09:18 -0500

What do we all want out of life, even if we lie, cheat and steal? I can somehow answer that. In the end, we are all looking for an honest benefit, even if we do have a funny way about going and getting it.

"Being and Nothingness" - Existential Crisis

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 12:58:26 -0500

'If anyone had asked me what existence was, I would have answered, in good faith, that it was nothing, simply an empty form which was added to external things without changing anything in their nature' - Jean Paul Sartre. Have you ever pronounced your name?... and then pronounced it again, and again! And for so many times that you lost control of it and realized that it was no more connected to your material existence!... and the thought of losing yourself completely made you very cold, down to your heart that it started thumping so hard as to show that you somehow did exist!! That fear of 'not being' is one of the most inevitable fears of mankind and such a realization may be termed as existential crisis.

Consciousness and Time

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 11:30:13 -0500

Attention! Forward March!

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 06:20:44 -0500

Recently, I have been thinking about the past in a depressed way. Oh, I was that way a short time of course, but still, I realized that the present needs special attention. Thus, the title: "Attention! Forward March". In life, the future and the past should be kept free of worry, but the present should fully be lived in when it is happening.

A New Science-Art Solution to the Global Information and Communications Epidemic

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 06:18:24 -0500

American government appointed medical epidemiologists have the responsibility to protect the health and wellbeing of community development. They have identified the existence of a global 3D virus-like epidemic transmitted by the mass manufacture of information and communication devices, for which they have no antidote. By reexamining ancient Greek science several relevant mistakes have taken place that appear to contain information relevant to the workings of the antidote. This highly sensitive observation requires modern mechanistic science to synergize with the living neurological science presented to the world in Professor Guy Deutscher's 2012 book of the year titled, Through the Language Glass. Australian cancer researchers have published discoveries that appear to dovetail into Deutscher's upgrading of 19th Century linguistic color perception theory. Eminent Italian scientists and artists in 2016 have fused the Australian initiative into their own quantum art 21st Century Renaissance project and are taking the new knowledge to the world in the form of art exhibitions in prestigious galleries in Rome and Moscow.

If You Wanted To Crush Human Civilization, How Would One Go About Doing It?

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 06:03:14 -0500

So, here are some thoughts a Sci Fi Writer might go with when using the genre of an Alien Race taking over our planet. Such hypotheticals are interesting thought experiments. Okay so, let's begin with a few intellectual points of contention along these lines, shall we?

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend Me Your Ears (And Read With Your Minds)

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 12:40:48 -0600

Before I begin this article, I lifted this title off of a very bad Marlon Brando movie where he played Marc Anthony, the Roman statesman burying Caesar, not praising Caesar. There is a point to this. Some of the best and most memorable philosophical communications seem like the worst when they are heard, and are memorable long after they are heard or read.

How We Discover and Why It Matters

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 09:50:08 -0600

Science has lead to an increasing understanding of the world around us, and enormous improvements in our technology and living standards. But can science alone provide answers to our curiosity and questions? Or do we need other methods of discovery and exploration? Here in this article we explore methods of exploration, and whether and how they might augment science as humans seeks knowledge.
