A year of reflection.

It is nearing the end of 2012 and what a year for reflection it has been. It has been a time to re-evaluate myself and those around me. I have come to realise that the dissappointments I have struggeled with are my own failings and are...

Cheer up.!!!!!!

"Everything will be allright in the end. If it isn't allright, it is not the end"

The Universe (does it exist outside consciousness???)

"The integrated-information cohesion of collective consciousness both creates and interprets the universe from a human perspective. Collective consciousness is all there is and is eternal. Once collective consciousness ceases to exist, eternity is no...

The Capitalism Machine (Part 2)

5) The year is now 2067. Four years since John Ermington pressed the button in the then dusty corner of dingy room. The room is no longer the dull, shabby location it used to be. It is now part of a beautifully painted and decorated office building...

The Capitalism Machine.

The year is 2063-a world dominated by a relatively fair socialist philosophy and collection of government systems. A young, enthusiastic albeit somewhat greedy person enters an aging government building. In the corner of a dusty room on the top...

Collective consciousness & Epigenetics.

If as I believe, the expression of our 'evolved collective consciousness' makes us as humans the way we are in general with variability occuring both with differences in our DNA and that of influences of culture, geography, religion etc it is...

Capitalism-there must be a bettet way.

I am trying to think of a better, more equitable system then capitalism.  Why is it that some people may choose a career in a field that in the capitalist system is less valued than another ie a person may choose to be a child-care worker. In...

Letting go.

I have recently given a lot of thought to the concept of 'Letting go' as a means of growing in a new direction while removing triggers for deleterious thoughts and behaviour. It seems to me that we go through a series of crises as we travel life's...

Depression

I am at a loss as to why we leave it up to doctors to prescribe drugs for depression with the aim to just eliminating symptoms as if depression is a disease when actually I believe that depression is the subconscious being one step ahead of the...

debt based Capitalism

This is a bit different from my usual theme however as I work in the area community services and human need it always urkes me that we as a society still accept that banks can dictate their profitability on people without any compassionate realisation...

Human evolution (Still happening?)

There is a lot of talk in the scientific community to suggest that because we manipulate our own environment we are no longer subject to evolution by natural selection. I strongly dissagree with this belief as I see that our consciousness too is a...

Desire or Love? A survival Strategy.

Love is a many splendered thing. Where did the concept come from? The birds and the bees-I don't think so. Birds and bees and other life forms on our planet are preoccupied with survival and procreation, not a need to feel wanted and loved. Maybe...

Western World Economics.

I have been thinking lately that the western world's woes re economy could be to do with the way we percieve the value of money. It stands to reason that a economy relying on capitalistic principals relies heavily on debt. If all the money that exists...

Qantas v's Fair Wages and Conditions

We have heard a lot lately about how Qantas Australia found the need to ground the entire fleet based on their reasoning that the union pressure would be sufficient to cripple the organisation. The media and the government has treated this as a...

Oxytocin as Cancer Treatment.

It makes sense to me from a evolutionary point of view that serious consideration should be given to the way Oxytocin may have an effect on protecting the body from cancer, or may be used as a treatment. As Oxytocin is produced and delivered to the...

Germany 5% pay-cut

Maybe I am a bit thick or something but why is it that in our capitalistic based economies we punish the main revenue providers (low to middle income workers) when the economy has a downward hiccup. For example the latest idea to drop public sector...

To be Human

[FONT="Arial"][SIZE="4"]We are here because our Ovule survived, Our spermatozoon won the race, while natural selection favored our fecundity-nothing more, nothing less. A once in a lifetime achievement-the ultimate human success story. It is now our...

OZ interest Rates ?

This is definitely not my usual forum as I am fairly dumb when it comes to politics however I would be interested to hear from those better acquainted with the subject to shed some light on how by fiddling around with the interest rates the reserve...

Atheism-Ethics and morality

I must say I was not overly impressed to hear today-Easter Friday, that certain Christian leaders tended to blame atheism for the unpleasant happenings in the world of late as though Christians have a monopoly on Ethics and Morals when this is...

Evolved Collective Consciousness

I know I seem to talk a lot on this topic, I can't help myself, as I believe in it so much more all the time as I see things that happen in the world from day to day. I believe that this collective expression of our genetic makeup is a very powerful...

Circle or Ellipse ?

Intuitively, it seems to me that there can be no such thing as a circle in reality on this planet or maybe even elsewhere in the universe. Isn't it true that a circle is only an ellipse with the two foci brought together and combined. Even if the foci...

Thoughts or Book Answers ?

It appears that a lot of well educated people visit this site but there seems to be a lot of posts that could just as easily have come from an encyclopaedia. I don't think this does much to encourage intelligent conversation or to nurture 'Thoughts'...

Neanderthal genome ?

I was watching a television documentary where the DNA of Neanderthal man's remains are being studied for various reasons-one being to try to establish whether they interbred with or not. To support the possibility they used the analogy of two "separate...

Prokaryote or Eukaryote ?

I am interested in peoples views on why, it seems that a eukaryote life form was favored by natural selection when prokaryotes have been so successful. I understand that a eukaryote lifestyle enabled living forms to adventure into many different...
