Heaven and Hell

The experience of physical reality requires the human sensors to feel “pressure”, be it the photon of light from a star, or the crushing weight of a huge stone, or even the sounds of rain – all experiences are the result of pressure on a sensor.

THE REAL VALUE OF MONEY

Money represents energy. Dealers would like you to believe otherwise. That is how they make their profits. Catch-phrases like ‘market-forces’, buying trends, hedge-funds, consumer confidence are all designed to give the money lender an air of authority.

Occam’s Razor is so convoluted as to appear to be the exact opposite. Ockham is not a person. It was a place the philosopher William (Franciscan priest […]

What is Intelligence?

This may surprise many, but it is the ability to propagate the species to its optimum benefit. If the species survives, the intelligence that enabled its survival is the greatest intelligence to be had. Think about it, no matter how much you know, if you cannot pass this knowledge on to another of your species […]
