Natural Technology and Artificial Intelligence

Natural Technology and Artificial Intelligence


  Dearest readers, The biggest question of our time, I believe, is this: Will you take back your power and freedom, or do you agree to become the property of a corporation, essentially an enslaved cog in a machine? A.I. or artificial intelligence, in essence, is the use of artificial (not of nature or unnatural) […]

Remedies for loneliness: the importance of sharing and intimacy

Remedies for loneliness: the importance of sharing and intimacy


Dearest readers, An unforeseen and preventable tragedy recently occurred in my work place. One of my younger coworkers, M. (aged 27) took his own life during the holiday break. He was a quiet young man. Respectful, thoughtful, intelligent. A model employee who was always on time and who played by the rules. His college major […]

Barefoot and terrified: When did we become afraid of Mother Earth?


Dearest readers, A recent televised evening news broadcast announced the arrest of a woman at a North Carolina daycare center on charges of child abuse for breastfeeding another woman’s baby. When I heard this story, I thought about how fearful and mistrustful we humans are of one another. Especially in America. We are afraid to touch […]

Helping people stimulates the economy


Hello readers, The other day, I was watching Real Time with Bill Maher as he was interviewing Bernie Sanders. During this interview, Bernie said something extraordinary, which I have not heard him say during any other interview…and I have listened to a great many of his rally speeches and interviews. I am paraphrasing, but Bernie said […]

Why kindness matters


Hello readers! I am about 200 or so pages into book 2 of The Century Trilogy, “Winter of the World” by Ken Follett.  What is so compelling about Follett’s portrayal of our recent history in this epic series is how he helps the reader to see the primary motivating factors at work in human nature through […]

Thankful – thoughts on environment and culture


  Hello readers, Sometimes I fantasize about an America built on the principle of inter-connectedness of all things and beings.  I try to imagine a place where the schism of culture that is our European mono-theistic birthright never happened. Where man against nature was never a theme in literature or science. What might have happened […]

Experience of the real and NDEs (Near Death Experiences)


Hello readers, I’ve never personally been through an NDE (though I’ve had a few close calls in my life!)…but I’m fascinated with all explorations and perception of the real…and the limits of human experience, including intuition and extra-sensual experiences.  What does it mean to be human?  What does it mean to be alive?  How are […]

Does Duality Make Us Sick?


  Hello readers, From a very young age because of circumstances in my life causing me to be rejected by my family, I have spent a lot of time alone.  Introspective by nature anyway, this solitude caused me to think deeply about the meaning of my life and my place in this world.  Instinctively, my […]

Are you alone for the holidays?


Hello readers, Tradition holds that holiday celebrations are a time for families to come together.  For those whose family ties are broken for one reason or another, and for those of us who live in cultures in which caring for strangers, outcasts, and loners is little important other than symbolically, the holidays can be a […]
