Here’s Mote in Your Eye!

Why do I criticize the saw dust in my brother’s eye while there is a plank in mine? I ask myself this question, a version of another question from some famous person. This question came to me while I was reflecting upon a recent interaction with a friend of mine. I threw this friend under the bus […]

Self Defense

The Father of Psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, postulated “ego defense mechanisms.”   For example, the ego uses intellectualization to displace anxiety-producing thoughts with related “intellectual” thoughts.  The nasty thoughts are repressed into unconsciousness while acceptable intellectual thoughts are expressed freely. What if psychology itself is an intellectualization and defense mechanism against Self Realization? There is a […]

Off with the races!

Off with the races!

Does race exist?  If races are defined as genetically discrete groups, no. So say the scientists.  But yet the concept of race still persists.  Not only does it still persist, the concept is propagated – even by government.  Take a look at this recent census form. 2010 Census: Question on Race   A sound argument based […]

Scientists say that a giant meteorite, or asteroid, struck the ancient […]

Well, the probability of life in […]

Latent Inaccuracy of Everything (L.I.E.)

It’s all a lie.  Everything. Look at this screen.  Take a second to observe it.  What do you see?   … Wrong.   (WTF are you talking about?  You have no idea what I said!) But it’s not your fault.  It lied to you.  Everything lies to you. You’d be getting warmer if you said: […]

Too Lazy to Differentiate

I’m reading a publication about a data distribution system which proposes, to its advantage, to regionally segregate data servers by average user demographics in the region. It occurs to me that the reason for segregating people by race, creed, color, religion, sexual orientation, etc. is not because there’s an innate need to differentiate, but because […]
