    Your Ying And My Yang Should Do Lunch :)

    People often get so hung up on one way or another rather than realizing that not only is it whatever it is, but that it's okay to like things or not things as long as you put it into perspective of the great big whole and respect others' perspectives. Yin and Yang...opposites...

    Archetypes, Symbols, & That Feeling "you're In The Right Place At The Right Time"

    Hopefully you're not in the right place at the wrong time. Or the wrong place at the right time. If you think you are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Get out of there now! I'm not sure if what i dwell on is philosophy per se. Spirituality? The Tao, perhaps. Was Buddha a...

    Good And Evil

    Conspiracy Theories

    After a conversation with a fellow EPer on the subject of David Icke, I began thinking about the nature of conspiracy theory... First of all, I don't despise Icke. I like Icke. I don't believe he's a con artist because his story is not a product... he does not sell Snake Oil, he...

    Energy, Time And Quality

    Energy and time are belonging to each other. If I give food to the birds I give them energy but also time because they can save time for looking for food. If I travel with a spaceshuttle to a black hole in the universe time will be very slooow there. Because the black hole has so...

    Morality Free Zone

    Morality is the distinction of rights and wrongs in choices, with the aim of a more enlightened outcome of any situation. The inherit problem with morality is that every noun can be assigned the value of "Evil" or "Good". Now this alone is a contradiction that leaves grey areas...

    Money, Gold, Words, Action

    If you go down the timeline you may accept that there was a time without money and a time without gold and a time without words. The first human beings have surely talked to each other but they didn't need money nor did they need gold. But true is also that long before any human...
