Ingredients vs mix

The oxymoron of government innovation

Several governments are busy reigning in the power of private businesses. On July 5, Bloomberg claimed that "[] what’s clear is that Beijing is looking for a way to control data collected by private companies, and is willing to shut them down if necessary."

The AND/OR dilemma (2)

In August 2015, I wrote part one of this blog. It was probably my first blog about dualism (my blogs) without even realising this. Much later, I wrote two blogs on the same topic and/but from a different perspective: Why life is (not) digital (my blogs of 2017 and 2021).

Recently, I have been joking that this virus might be a divorced female with a vengeance. Considering the number of Trump's divorces, his age, and his disbelief in the virus, something must be happening...

I still remember a brief moment several years ago, when I suddenly saw the interconnectedness of everything in my mind. During my cleaning, I also noticed a recent...
