Introspection

A recent Psyche article revealed something unexpected: "67 per cent of the men and 25 per cent of the women opted to intentionally shock themselves, rather than spend a short period of time alone with their thoughts." Hence, introspection is far from common (for men). Apparently, I'm an exception. There are two primal emotions in life: Fear and Love (eg, my 2016...

How do you help yourself?

At this time, someone may consider asking me: how do you help yourself? For some, this question will just be theoretical. For others, its answer will hopefully translate into a practical tool. My answer will primarily be helpful for the ones who want to survive. The ones in a victim role may say that they need or want help but their intentions will - sooner or later...

I assume that this IPCC report will soon lose the media battle for attention. Fear works better when it's close to you. The IPCC warning is "only" about forthcoming decades...

If Good does bad, does Good become Bad?

Suppose, just suppose, that you could travel back in time and kill baby Adolf Hitler. Forget about the Law of Unintended Consequences. Forget about doubt (eg, is it him?). The Greater Good theory would applaud your act. Criminal law would argue that you murdered a (still) innocent child. Hence, my question: if Good does bad, does Good become Bad? Some 15 years ago,...
