Sleep

Couldn’t sleep last night. Perhaps I slept for too long and I’m making up for it. A 3 month stint is pretty long, and the associated rest. But as I have always said, from early childhood I believe, they are both excellent states, being awake and asleep, just with different sources of data. Maybe tonight […]

Wormholes

AI seems to be designed after our own intelligence, no longer artificial, but conscious. Perhaps there is something more to us than the mere routing of information we store in our brain. I like to think there is much more to us, but it seems that if you turn off the brain all human functions […]

Transgender

I was watching a television show recently called transgender, it was so profound, about people who felt different from how they were born. Their physicality was wrong and didn’t make sense to them. I couldn’t help but think of coma. It’s a curious effect of mine to no longer be able to control my body, […]

Existence

Well I’m back after a days respite, at beauty garden coffee shop now. My thought for the day, no, I express thoughts for my existence here, not the day. There is quite a backlog accumulating about all manner of things, I did consider daily blogs but am trying to normalise. If you believe that a […]

Thought

The other coffee shop today, next to the MRT. I feel I must blog, I sent a couple of invites to my blogging colleagues, it’s a great place here for the expression of thoughts. I do too much thinking, a human condition. I did stop for a time. I was immobilised, but blogging is making […]

Home

That’s a powerful word, home. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about today’s post, indeed we are like a parasite attacking our host, the planet, our home. It’s about time we woke up to ourselves and use the knowledge we have gleamed from our existence. We really do know quite a lot, atomic theory, […]

Greenhouse

I used to think about global warming constantly, and today. The disastrous effects of humanity on the planet earth. I mean are we really so self destructive? Should we continue to use coal and petrol for our power and destroy our planet? We are inventing alternatives all the time. Let’s continue to live a little […]

Heal

Another song come to mind, “no recovery, each day is a terrible discovery”. Probably you come here for a coffee with me to see how I’m recovering. I suspect it’s going as well as can be expected, I’m trying to think and walk again. It seems to be a very very very long process. Today […]

Philosophy

Well here I am again, the coffee shop. Philosophers. Just to name a few, Plato, Husserl, Jean Paul Sartre, I can almost remember Sartre, “being and nothingness” was a favourite work, can’t remember the detail but I studied it at university, Heidegger, all of them profound thinkers and writers. Goethe, Hesse, Berger, many people that […]

Egypt

My memory is appalling. “Memories that make no sense, memories in future tense”, a song I can’t get out of my head of late. I wonder what kind of person I have been in my life past, I can choose the future. Speaking of past requires memory, perhaps present doesn’t. Although present requires perception and […]

Appearances

Well I’m at the usual coffee shop, beauty garden, where is my friend who likes the paisley shirt? What’s on my mind? All of us take the immediacy of sight as our first input, sure we think about what we see, but it’s secondary. We often trouble about how we look, appearance is important to […]

Trust

It’s such a fundamental aspect of life to trust, very human indeed. I trust my family completely. A wife, mother and father and siblings cannot mean each other harm, and only hope that one succeeds in his endeavours. They are people that I know and implicitly trust. We are always suspicious of strangers, they might […]

Geld

It’s a German word geld, a very small difference from the English gold, it means money. Money is perhaps the most overwhelming of our inventions, another invention the economy, to assign value to everything and this principle is taking us over. I don’t really care for it but everyone says we need money. We assign […]

Empathy

I am thinking of writing a book one day. It would begin with this blog verbatim as the introduction, just to get the reader to sympathise with my thinking, to become acquainted with my mind. It doesn’t really make any difference to publish a book as the concepts are already published in this coffee shop, […]
