The solution is, however, quite simple: stop or silence smartphone notifications. Also see recent WSJ article: How fixing notifications changed my relationship with my phone. Our obsession with time efficiency has increasingly resulted in...

The micro to macro arrow: is growth irreversible?

Last week, a friend used an unfamiliar analogy. Once you're swimming in the deep pool (c.2.60m) then the children's pool (c.25cm) is no longer relevant.

Geopolitics

The oldest (known) city is some 11,000 years old (ie, Damascus). The oldest (known) country is some 2,500 years old, being: San Marino (301 BCE), or Japan (660 BCE) or China (221 BCE). See 2020 ThoughtCo. article. Much more recent is geopolitics, which (probably) started with WW I (1914-18). Geopolitics represents the global interconnectedness of Politics, one of...
