Health, Wealth & Self

Last week was a bad week for me. My health suddenly deteriorated, which scared me. My father died in 1994 at the age of almost 62. Slowly, I'm approaching his then-age. I'm eager to outlive him. My symptoms kind of reminded me of his cause of death. It has taken me about a week to recover, which felt long. Yesterday, I've had my first coffee, which still did not...

The SpaceTime dimension and the alternate Energy-Matter dimension

Last Wednesday, I received an epiphany. My diagram below is the result of that. I think, feel and believe that my epiphany is important. It captures my current understanding of my blog topics: Data / Info, Energy vs Matter, and the Spacetime dimension. Spacetime is the only known known dimension to us.

Our body is a network and so is everything else

The article's subtitle reads as follows: "You cannot be reduced to a body, a mind or a particular social role. An...

Here and Now

Here and Now

Last Thursday, I felt a little sad because I missed her presence. Allowing someone into your life has the downside that they will not always be around you. I was about to start blaming someone whose problems are keeping her away from me. Then I realised that my notion is absurd. I should stay in my Here & Now rather than a Now & There. Another dark side of...

Confident humility (2)

Confident humility (2)

Last Sunday, someone asked me about Monday's blog. In her view, confident humility is about a fight in which the soul wins from the ego. Her view makes sense. In my terminology, the Body (eg, heart), the Mind (eg, ego) and the Soul would be neatly aligned (my blogs). This would then give a kind and humble person (artist, lyrics, video, Wiki).When the ego inflates,...
