Chemistry

The word chemistry was quite often used during my recent viewing of Hallmark Christmas films; see my related blog. Defining chemistry is as hard as defining love. Both are container terms. The ancient Greek had at least 6 different words for love (eg, Wiki). Chemistry has at least 3 types. My diagram is the result of a conversation. Once again, she has inspired me....

How to deal with an information overload (2)

My recent blog, How to deal with an information overload, left me thinking on this topic. Our body, mind & soul have their own ways of dealing with the vastness of sensory stimuli (ie, hearing, sight, smell, taste, touch).

My blog title only expressed my feelings on this topic. With hindsight, I wondered about the damage to our mind. A December 2019 Forbes magazine article, Why Climate Alarmism Hurts...

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...
