    Mind Games

    As I read the titles, stories, and things like profile names, I am so amazed at what people have come up with. The human mind is such a wonderful instrument, it is too bad not everyone uses theirs. The way people think of their subjects and names is so much like an art. The...

    Stentor, Or, My Amazing Mind Again

    I have been on the road for some time now. In some ways I yearn for the green green grass of home (except home aint got no grass), while in others I continue to enjoy my sojourn with new views - as my friend Barry Penney says - of what's around the next corner. The things I miss...

    Creative Or Destructive

    The Human mind can be perceived in a variety of ways. The struggle, the challenge, is coming to realize it can be the ultimate manifestation of positive creativity, destructively damaging, or even apathetic byproducts. For a long time I struggled with the question of morality in...

    I Realise That People Have Never Been As Ive Perceived Them.

    As a child I always thought there was good in the vast majority of humans,maybe a little harder to find in some than others.However,I have had experiences that force me to conclude that if this was ever true,it is no longer.And it saddens me to say this,I think it indicates that...

    I think we love with our minds.

    When a heart is transplanted from one body to the next it doesn't transfer the loves of that heart to the new body... The new body's person still loves their loves... So I thus feel we love with our minds... Our minds are powerful. What's even more powerful is our choice to...

    The Pharmaceutical Industry Is Perpetrating A Hoax

    Remember the ‘good old days’ when, if you were depressed or anxious, you’d just call your mother or your best friend and cry on their shoulder. They’d listen to you, maybe give you a little advice, and tell you that everything would be okay. You could rant and rave, and...

    The Biology Of Homo Sapiens Sapiens

    I love biology, to be more specific, I love the biology of humans. I am a tad bias when it comes to choosing between science and religion, but either way, if God or which ever larger than life entity created man, or the big bang, the human mind is an incredible thing. I would...
