It’s better to be alone than being lonely in a relationship

A relationship used to be a goal in my life. Like many other people, I prefer to be alone nowadays. I’m not sure when I’ve changed my mind. I suppose dating failures explain the how and the why. Dating appears to be a game or a leisure activity rather than anything serious. Perhaps, I’ve given up although I doubt that. I’ve just accepted reality. If anyone serious...

Emptiness of existence

Last Monday’s blog mentioned the apparent emptiness of existence that I seemed to witness during my Italian trip. It scared - and still scares - me. Actually, I had already felt that notion during my 2014 trip to the Dominican Republic, my 2017 blog.

Its subtitle was another clear message: "The country’s self-image as tolerant, decent and hard-working is being smashed. It’s only going to get worse". My main thought was: what is the difference...

The builder versus hunter/gatherer hypothesis

On 28 June 2023, a scientific article caused breaking news: The Myth of Man the Hunter: Women’s contribution to the hunt across ethnographic contexts. The article fitted well in (gender) discussions on men vs women. The outcome was simple: early women were hunters as well. Usually, computer games show simple societies: from hunter/gatherer towards builders &...
