1 — if you believe the story that it was passed to humans via a creature being eaten, explain why it just happens to occur now when the USA has been engaged in a culture and economic war with China? Why not decades ago? The Chinese have been eating all sorts of things you might find strange for a very long time … why now?Continue reading “A few thoughts on the coronavirus 2019/20”
Ok, this isn’t really psychic, but I thought that was an apt name for the article.
A hypothetical rock starts rolling down a hypothetical mountainside, slowly at first, then gathering speed it rolls through some mud which completely cakes the rock in an inch thick layer … and on this strange hypothetical mountain, it then encounters a patch of small broken sticks, then rolls across ice which freezes the mud and traps the sticks in it, then it rolls across gravel that gets stuck between all the sticks;
I was reading an article the other day about a woman who died as a consequence of flesh eating bacterium, and it made me think a few things which prompted this article.
Firstly, I will guarantee you that the world will continue to take the wrong approach to this unless they think in the way I’m about to suggest — hence the motivation to educate them before they make matters worse as they’ve been continuing to do so far … secondly I’ll bet a lot of people will deny what I’m about to say, and then it will later be proven correct.
What exactly is it we are referring to when we use the word “sky”?
If we think about it carefully:
the sky is an emergent object which only strictly speaking “exists” when you have an unobstructed view upwards towards a purely natural atmospheric and/or astronomical background.
So if i can see clouds, blue sky ( daylight ), or stars, I am seeing some aspect of the day-time or night-time sky. Continue reading “Blame shifting, brinkmanship, cowardice, ignorance, illiteracy, and laziness … versus “the sky is falling” – how do you find truth in a post truth world?”
In order for capitalism to “work” ( ie – not fail ) in any regard, its starting assumptions must most likely be either true, or not too far off the truth; they certainly can’t be utterly false and contradictory to reality, in some manner likely to cause total failure.
Now one of the defences not often spoken – but which must logically be implied by any defence of capitalism from a civil liberties, human rights, and individual freedom of expression perspective – is that:
- IF your offerings to the world have value;
- THEN you should be able to support yourself providing such;
- ELSE IF you are unable to support yourself;
- THEN clearly your offerings have no significant value.
Think about that for a minute. Continue reading “Flawed assumptions of capitalism”
As I walked home from the cafe where I sometimes go to do writing, I saw a tradesman’s car signage, and which stimulated the thought for this article.
How many houses exist in all the cities of the world? Many millions right? Of those houses in the wealthier cities, how many of them have roof guttering that collects leaves and other things that need to be cleared out so that the guttering doesn’t overflow into the ceiling or wall cavities, and doesn’t rust through? Of those houses, how many are owned &/or occupied by people unable ( or unwilling ) to get up and clear them from time to time? Well … enough to keep some roof guttering guys in work anyway.

If you want to get to the heart of any matter, you have to keep asking the question: ” … and where does that come from? “, until you get back to the source of things, and there’s no longer another deeper answer to the question.
In terms of economics, what is its foundation? Continue reading “Fundamental Economic Theorem”
Weird title I know … but it’s a metaphor, allow me to explain.
A lot of people are too simple minded to think about anything in great depth, and once they think they understand something, that’s often the end of their investigation. Continue reading “Evolution is not smashing things with hammers”
The purpose of this article is to propose my hypothesis on how the anarchic Open Empire Foundation framework will act to move people towards a vegan diet, without creating any law nor enforcement of law. Continue reading “Anarchically Ensured Veganism”

People just want a place to chill and sleep, food and to have a good time, but we have created this maze of insanity and control writing fictions on papers channeling most of our energy and efforts into creating even more of it. ~ Andrew Osagie
