I insist. What does God mean to you?Do atheists exist? Let’s answer the second question first: Whoever states that is an atheist, without any obvious reason, he or she is plain stupid. At best he/she is barely illiterate. The most appropriate answer for a person who is seeking the truth is that he studied, he researched, he thought some more and then reached a dead-end. The sincere people declare they are Agnostics, the stupids, Atheists. Ask someone if he believes in God. If he answers without a second thought that he is an Atheist [we shall not include the ones that simply like to tease], then rank him as an idiot and go on. I copy from an encyclopedia: This term (Agnosticism), as well as the relative term agnostic, were established by Thomas Huxley in 1869. News flash: The ancient people who inhabited Greece worshiped as God the Unknown God.
Thoughts, notes, posts!
So many have already said so much – including me-, about the soul! It brings to mind this Greek game that children play where they put their palms against each other and sing: Where is the ring? Search, search, you will not find it! You will not find the ring you are searching for! Replace the word ring with soul, and you’ll see my point. So in order to conclude the soul issue – and have at least my readers understand my scripts – since everyone uses the term soul according to his will, let’s say a few more things. At some point, at the beginning of creation, there was only one power, one energy and nothing else. And then something happened, and this overwhelming power woke up. And a second potentiality appeared from that power, confronting itself through condensation of its own elements. What happened when those two elements
Shakespeare wonders: To live or not to live? Neo – or One or better yet Zero – ask an even harder question: Since the One in question will live anyway, what color pill does he prefer? The blue of joy and peace, or the red that comes up with a plug on the neck? For those who didn’t get it, the question about the color of the pill comes from the movie Matrix, which I think every human under the age of seventy with a cell phone and a computer has watched! Any way to get back on the truck, the dilemma is simple: The world we live in is fake. It is multidimensional and is inhabited by many creatures. In our ten dimensions, you can find people, angels, demons, etc. Do we want to see the truth or do we prefer to look at everything through colorful glasses? Please,
The conspiracies and the human stupidity, walking arm to arm, have come to oppress us since at least conspiracies play a serious role in our lives finally. For human stupidity, there is no need to make the slightest hint. Stupidity lives and reigns and is conquering the whole world. But what happens in reality? Let’s start with the second. By the word stupidity, I am not referring to the various failures a person does in his life in his attempt to survive. At the same time, he also does multiple acts of wit. But there is an average that generally characterizes him. I would add that the average of earthly humanity and not of individual people, is probably low in the dipole of stupidity-wit. The result is that this does not allow him to have open horizons in the way his mind is working and falls victim to those who
Last year, I got invited to a super-deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech to what I assumed would be a hundred or so investment bankers. It was by far the largest fee I had ever been offered for a talk — about half my annual professor’s salary — all to deliver some insight on the subject of “the future of technology.” I’ve never liked talking about the future. The Q&A sessions always end up more like parlor games, where I’m asked to opine on the latest technology buzzwords as if they were ticker symbols for potential investments: blockchain, 3D printing, CRISPR. The audiences are rarely interested in learning about these technologies or their potential impacts beyond the binary choice of whether or not to invest in them. But money talks, so I took the gig. After I arrived, I was ushered into what I thought was the green
I’ve recently completed an extraordinary four weeks of research, writing and travel in Spain, ending in Barcelona after two weeks in Toledo, via a few days stay in both Zaragoza and Burgos. The pressure of unfamiliar places, the space to devote time to walking and soaking up the places, and writing, is perspective altering. A whole month away to dive deep into a passion is a privilege and a challenge and I can feel shifts taking place in how I view my use of time and the nature of my future work. Life, David Henry Thoreau tells us, is precious. We do not want to find ourselves at the end of it having not lived. So how do we know that we are living, that we are sucking out the marrow of life? For me it has to do with the courage to live as the person I want to
