The journey of life on the trail of happiness

2021-08-09T17:51:45+00:00By |Philosophy|

Many times in life you come to a crossroad. A time and place to reflect, consider, and decide. Many of these crossroads have multiple directions, and are not simple this way or that way binary choices. Sometimes the path you take is one way, and there's no going back. Other times you might luck out and be able to go back to the crossroad and take a different path. Regardless, the path to happiness is one with many choices. Happiness is a choice, or a result of choices and careful reflection. We can only live each day on its own [READ MORE]

The Likelihood of Immortality

THE LIKELIHOOD OF IMMORTALITY: This is one of my ramblings about the possibility and likelihood of technological immortality based on statistical probability, Moore's Law, science, physics, evolution and everything. We'll start with the tech. LIFE EXTENSION MEDTECH:  Pharmaceuticals - Drugs. Mainly these are merely treatments for symptoms or preventative maintenance, not cures for diseases. Although there could be a “fountain of youth” type drug that allows a humanoid (or any carbon based biological entity) to survive very long periods of time. Though not immortal, the being (human or alien) could essentially live forever IF cellular repair and replacement could be [READ MORE]

An Explanation of All Things Mysterious

2021-09-06T19:00:01+00:00By |Astronomy, Cosmology, Inspiration, Philosophy, Physics, Science, Science Fiction, Universe|

This revelation explains all those great mysteries of old. Ancient knowledge, disconnected conundrums, curious coincidences, and suspicious secrets, hidden from view, yet sensible, all lurk under the surface of the deep sea of history, our perception of existence. Deep and dark secrets drowned in vaguery, obscured in the shadowy depths of the empty void of human ignorance and delusion. We seek answers to things which we truly do not wish to know, for if we discover the actual truth, it will by all accounts, destroy our feeble barriers of bliss, awaken our sleeping terrors and thrust us into a nightmare [READ MORE]

On Free Will

2021-08-09T17:52:53+00:00By |Philosophy|

On Free Will. The idea of determinism vs free will is an ancient, yet pointless debate based on a false dilemma. It’s a fallacy. I also think it's a useless waste of time to debate anything that likely will never have conclusive evidence which can prove or disprove it one way or the other empirically. “Either we have free will or we don't”, is a false dilemma because of relativity, time and space, cause and effect. It can be both and neither simultaneously. It doesn't have to be one or the other. Humans have a tendency to think in terms [READ MORE]

H*** speech is the price of free speech

Again...Facebook "glitches" conveniently when I'm commenting/posting a critique of a sensitive topic. It almost never glitches when I'm typing massive, long explainer posts that take me an hour to write. (and I post A LOT) It's ALWAYS when I'm criticizing a sensitive topic like racism, religion, xenophobia, etc. It's almost as if Facebook developers are deliberately censoring posts and blaming it on a technical issue with an error message popup. I'd believe it was a genuine bug in the site code IF and ONLY IF the "glitch" didn't consistently happen on sensitive and controversial topics. I know enough about how [READ MORE]

Is an altruistic humanity possible?

2021-08-09T17:53:51+00:00By |Philosophy|

I hate this greedy society we live in. Hate is not a strong enough word to describe the disdain I feel regarding the level of greed and ignorance of this society that we're forced to live in. My tolerance for it is gone. But yeah, it doesn't matter because I'm just some dumb schmuck that doesn't matter any more than anyone else who doesn't have money. I'm merely a peon in a peonage among other peons with no power. It's depressing how fucked up the world is, or rather, more correctly, how fucked up the monetary system is. The world [READ MORE]

Argument For For-Profit Charity

2021-08-09T17:54:19+00:00By |Philosophy|

THE ARGUMENT FOR FOR-PROFIT CHARITY by Eric Wichman Let me explain something that at first seems counterintuitive and selfish and greedy, but the more you look at it and understand it, the more it makes sense. Even the phrase "for-profit charity" sounds like it's fake, like it's a scam or at the least, it sounds as if there's some sinister ulterior motive. But it only sounds this way if you lack understanding of how money works. Understand that everything has a cost. Whether the cost is time, labor, or money, there is a cost to any given thing in a [READ MORE]

Why I Want To Be a Billionaire – It’s NOT what you think!

2021-08-09T17:57:11+00:00By |Philosophy|

Do you want to be rich? I do, but not for the reasons you might think. Let's get the bullshit out of the way so we can get to the real reason. I want to be richer than rich. I want to buy all those materialistic things just like anyone else. I want a big house, multiple houses, all over the world, a nice car, lots of nice cars, lots of land, nice clothes, and money in the bank. I want all those things that most people want. But I want more. I want to help people and to help [READ MORE]

Can We Really End World Poverty? I’m Crazy (Naive) Enough To Try

2021-08-09T17:58:30+00:00By |Philosophy|

As I sit here in Starbucks drinking my coffee, writing this article I realize, that technically, by definition and law, I am homeless. The people around me come and go, unknowingly walking by the homeless man next to them. As I gaze around the place I see a real homeless person, an older man, with a long scraggly beard, drinking his coffee, drawing a “HOMELESS: NEED HELP” sign on an old piece of cardboard he must have picked up outside. I realize that the disparity between us is great, but then again, maybe it’s not. I’m homeless but maybe not [READ MORE]

How To Kill The Beast That Enslaves You

We live in a system that doesn't give a shit about us and that would replace us within a few days if we dropped dead. They system uses us up like slaves and throws us away like trash when we're too old and injured and unhealthy to work anymore. I'm fed up with the system and how it works so I'm walking away from it. It's scary, it's a kind of an addiction I think. When things are going well it feels safe but once something happens in your life and you can't pay into the system anymore it turns [READ MORE]

Where In The World Did Our Humanity Go?

2021-08-09T17:59:13+00:00By |Philosophy|

The world is a bad place when you literally need money to live. In the old days you could find a piece of land, build a cabin, live off the land, work the land, grow your own food, raise your own livestock for food and generate your own water...and now even solar power. Now though it takes money. There are so many rules in place it forces you to work a job to pay into a system that will chew you up and spit you out the moment your usefulness is used up. The system doesn't give a shit about [READ MORE]

67 of My Favorite Quotes

While surfing the web I'm always running across quotes I like from successful, famous, and sometimes not so famous people. Here of some of them. "The only thing that makes sense is to strive for greater collective enlightenment." - Elon Musk "The single best piece of advice: Constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself." - Elon Musk "That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end [READ MORE]
