Let it flow

Something broke inside me during the trip back from Germany. Initially, I assumed it was due to the prior night without sleep. Slowly, it dawned upon me that she and I lack a future together. I suppose that it's fair to say that our chemistry has slowly vanished until it was gone. I have been slow to accept the above. Probably because I was in denial. I preferred my...

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).

The human cycle of Change has an additional element: acceptance. The default human cycle of Change follows nature's default: deeds (ie, actions),...

When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do?

The statement above is usually (mis)attributed to economist John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946). Many - if not most - facts are time-boxed. A famous example is the 1609 controversy on heliocentrism: does the Earth rotate around the Sun (eg, Galileo Galilei) or vice versa (ie, the Roman Catholic Church)? Not changing your mind when the facts change, reveals the existence...
