Dualism-Trialism

Inequality and polarization

Recently, Belgian newspaper De Standaard published an article stating that a feeling of impoverishment pushes voters towards extremist sides. Hence, more inequality is responsible for more polarization in our societies. Also see my April 12 blog: Politics, a belief in (in)equality. For some time, I have noticed an increasing radicalization in the beliefs of...

Nature and God are two sides of the same coin (Spinoza)

The phrase above is from Baruch Spinoza's book Ethics (1677). In the Latin language, it was: "Deus sive Natura". Wiki: "For Spinoza the whole of the natural universe is made of one substance, God, or, what's the same, Nature, and its modifications (modes)." I suppose, this comes close to my views.

Love, Knowledge & Power, a f/m perspective

Several days ago, Bloomberg reported that men - again - took the bulk of Nobel prizes. This is - again - evidence that men are - in general - hungry for Power. I made a similar observation in my recent blog the power of sex. For a long time, I have been wondering about the Why (eg, anatomy). The Power domain of the 7 Belief systems includes: Data-Info (2019), Money...
