Can robots be our partners?

You probably recall C-3PO, the tall yellow human-like robot from Star Wars. He has a high voice and is always afraid of anything. He is harmless, isn't he? He could be your friend. Suppose, just suppose, that you would have watched a scene in which C-3PO killed another robot. Would you still trust C-3PO? This is the same reason why humans don't trust other...

The risk of love is loss

The risk of love is loss

Some weeks ago, I added a blog topic in my notes: Love & Loss. I've been staring at that topic ever since and didn't know what to make of it. I knew its meaning was not to write about a love lost.

I still cannot relate to it. Apparently, it's a (failed) paraphrase of a quote by writer C.S Lewis (1898-1963): “The price of freedom is loneliness. To be happy is to be...

Saviour complex

Recently, I connected to someone who is dealing with several issues. My help became an aphrodisiac to her. This should not come as a surprise as doctors and patients often develop relationships (eg, NCBI-2006, NCBI-2016, blog). With hindsight, I've been a magnet to people having problems. However, magnetism has a pull and a push force (my blogs of...
