Government

After World War 2 the USA became a global leader trying to prevent such a conflict from happening again. To their credit they were interested in life which has become a global value, the preservation of life. There have been several skirmishes since but by and large humans have experienced stability with no equivalent war. [...]

Origin

A suspicion... Humans originated 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. Humans then became intelligent by this alien AI. The aliens were probably more hopeful birds would [...]

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 [...]

Home

'Home on my own, all alone' - words from a Not Drowning Waving song. Well I'm not exactly that, my wife is asleep. Mother is in hospital for a foot infection the result of her diabetes. Hospitals remind me of coma. Previously mother needed a toe amputated for a similar complaint, I sincerely hope her [...]
