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 makers, 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... Continue Reading →


'Ghosts in the Shell' is a film about the human brain transplanted into a robot. They are doing similar things today in medicine, amputees brains controlling artificial limbs. Things like manufactured arms and hands being controlled by the amputees nervous system. As the films subject suggests perhaps one day we will be able to transplant... Continue Reading →


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... Continue Reading →


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.

Perhaps one day... Continue Reading →

I'll take a... Continue Reading →

Just to add a remark... Continue Reading →


I hope everyone is having as good a day as me, I feel I'm tracking towards recovery after many setbacks. We must keep trying. By my experience there are so many setbacks in recovery from coma, it's been almost three years now and at last I can see a glimmer of light, my memory is... Continue Reading →
