Idiocracy (4)

The recent interview with Gad Saad in the Dutch Financial Times made me realize that "our era of stupidity", which seems to be culminating into an idiocracy (my blogs), mostly relates to the Truth (my blogs) rather than any other of the 7 Belief systems (2015 version, 2019 update). Please take a look at my diagram. My diagram above connects several of my blogs:- the...

Idiocracy

A recent article in The Guardian referred to a 2006 "dystopian science fiction comedy", called Idiocracy, which ranks 6.6 on IMDb. Back then, I thought that its title was kind of funny. More and more, I'm wondering if this title is reflecting a part of our reality. At times, it feels that people's beliefs are moving from extreme to absurd. Especially in...

I knew I was walking a tightrope and assumed that I would be able to stay within my safety zone. My calculation was wrong and I've never worked a single day since mid 2013. There's another way of looking at...

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,...
