Recovery

Normal life resumes, yes my life is normal again. I have returned home to Singapore from my home of origin Germany. I love both places, Hessen in Germany (the photo) and Bukit Batok in Singapore. And I thought normality was a distant thing. To keep those that follow this blog informed of my progress, apart [...]

Wieder

Ich bin wieder da A return to my country of origin, Germany. A profound experience to be here again. Where I once lived and worked, where my parents come from. The home of my heart, perhaps my brain is partly Australian, but mostly German I think. One of the most important things in life is [...]

Origin

a thought ... Perhaps humans originate from aliens who invented AI for their own devices, computers made from organic matter, they didn't use metals. They then discovered planet Earth, humans were the best form of organic life here for their AI and so became intelligent. The aliens were probably more hopeful birds would accept their [...]

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Let's hope the new year brings continued recovery, getting closer to normality, I'm learning to walk again. As I've said many times we must keep using our brains and build new pathways, like we did when we were born. Be patient as neurological medicine says we can rebuild. So here's to another year of existence.

Discussion

Visiting Melbourne again, for Christmas. Been here for a while and I usually post about significant events for memory, and ideas for  other coma victims. Perhaps study helps recovery from coma. My mental functioning seems to be improving because of it, so much to remember. Not just memory but also logic. While I still don't [...]

Cinema

I loved film before coma so here is another post about an old film, perhaps I'm becoming normal. Stanley Kubrick was my favourite film maker, or perhaps Tarkovsky. We recently watched a Kubrick film again, "Eyes Wide Shut". Philosophically opposed to his classic "A Space Odyssey 2001" which was a story about aliens or maybe [...]

France

Congratulations to the people of France, they didn't turn their backs on the world in a time of globalization. Indeed the world has been changed through ships, planes and now technology which is making it a smaller place. The EU is a profound thing which prevents the us versus them mentality of nations which has caused many wars. Shame [...]

CNY

Happy lunar new year, the year of the rooster begins tomorrow... 'Gōng Xǐ Fā Cái' which means 'respectful happiness become wealthy' or 'happy new year' in Chinese. It's a massive event here in Singapore, a few days of public holiday and a unique thing called 'lo hei' or 'harvest fortune' where together with the people [...]

Westworld

And it would be great if the AI series Westworld went to the next dimension both literally and figuratively when it continues in the second series and suggests aliens have created humans and the material world we live in. When it talks of memory I am absorbed as I have lost mine. There are many profound [...]
