I saw a death corpse that wasn’t dead.

The bus was packed with people. I was standing, ignoring the other tens of commuters dealing with traffic on their own, personal ways. As for me, I was doing what I usually do in traffic, listen to an audio book; “The Selfish Gene” by Richard Dawkins was the one. Our senses have evolved for millions …

Can we predict the future? And should we believe those who say so?

Imagine you can choose to have a special mental ability. Predicting the future and influencing other’s behaviour might be two of the best ones out there. Ditching the behaviour one out, how possible is it for humans to predict the future to any extent, and if it’s not possible, why are there so many people …

The Lovers and The Call. A Short Story.

  “How can you say such a frightening thing!?”, she exclaimed, wide-eyed and gaping, focusing on his dark, deep eyes that looked at her with the utmost care. She started to stand up from the sofa they were both in. He tried to hold on to her hands, not forcing her to stay but without …

On distractions, memory and ideas.

I don’t know what’s the matter with people: they don’t learn by understanding; they learn by some other way—by rote, or something. Their knowledge is so fragile! — Richards Feynman I’ve stumbled upon a book, or should I say that the book stumbled upon me, called “The Pleasure Of Finding Things Out” by Richard Feynman. The …

Imagine a perfect, happy world. Now, imagine the opposite.

Imagine a world of happiness. Everyone has what they wish for, what they need, what they want. There is no need for food, shelter, security or entertainment. Picture a society highly divided between high class, middle class, and low-class citizens, every individual being born on their “caste” and not able to, under any circumstances, escape …

My thoughts on The Analyst by John Katzenbach

I’ve been wanting to read The Analyst for years but I never quite got to it. When I recently asked on social media for suggestions of books to read next, this book was mentioned a few times, so there you go. “Happy fifty-third birthday, Doctor. Welcome to the first day of your death”. Imagine that …

I found myself between the sword and the wall. Should I be brave or wise?

There’s this interesting phrase that goes “I found myself between the sword and the wall” that I heard many times in my childhood in cartoons and comics. As a kid I had a wild imagination, as most kids do, and my mind could only create this scenario of myself being literally in between a sword …

Mumbling and bleeding. Bleeding and mumbling.

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed. Ernest Hemingway What we love about quotes from the masters is the truth in them. Today’s a good day to bleed a little. What about? Not the slightest idea. But that’s kind of the point, isn’t it? Our mind is too small …

I will never be able to love my fellow men as I love my daughter, but I can learn to respect them in their differences.

Today I read this: What was I made for, if not to carry love like a torch in the dark and ignite every heart I touch? I stopped for a moment to realise the importance and the true meaning of this sentence. “What was I made for, if not to carry love like a torch”. …

Thoughts on “In Conversation With God” by Neale Donald Walsch.

This book is can be highly, highly controversial and the value it brings to a reader depends mostly on the already made assumptions and wisdom of such reader. As any religion-related topic, this book taps strongly into already-made beliefs. Most people, by age 20 or later, already have an strong opinion regarding religion, spiritualism, God, …
