Black vs white vs the many shades of grey

Most people wear either black or white. Only some people wear grey. Grey is often considered a dull colour. It's the same with opinions: most have a micro or a macro focus. Few opinions are in between (ie, gray/grey). Why is grey (eg, colour, opinion) considered as dull? Why don't we like grey? People consider their skin colour as either black or white. However,...

2022 Conceptual Framework

There has been a diagram on my desktop since July 24. My initial version was published on LinkedIn (link) in response to someone else's diagram that I viewed as invalid. My August 26 version below is a major update. However, the macro scope is so big that I have trouble seeing its (true) perspective.

Recently, we are finally seeing lots of articles with...

Depression is not a chemical imbalance in the brain.

On 21 May 2013, at about 4PM, it felt as if someone pushed a button at the back of my head during a meeting at work. My body then refused to follow my brain's instructions. Anything not work-related was not a problem (eg, driving home). After listening to my story, my doctor did not prescribe medication. On 20 July 2022, University College London published a "major...
