"Le monde est un livre, et ceux qui ne voyagent pas, n'en lisent qu'une page."
Saw this sign in a hotel lobby in Bordeaux, France and liked the #philosophy of it so much that I had one made when I got home, and hung it in my foyer entrance:

Making Public | #Synchronicityofparasites @Zinedepo/Motel Spatie, 17-5-2019

Motel Spatie is located in a part of an abandoned shopping mall. The mall had been built in 1965 as one of the first European adoptions of the American shopping mall concept. Motel Spatie is a DIY space founded in 2010 on the principles and with the attitude of squatter culture, never mind squatting having been outlawed in the Netherlands by the neoliberal Rutte government.

Musings on American culture


The ratio content/commercial on American television is pretty low compared to France’s or, I’m guessing, all of Europe’s. At first, I wondered how the American people could put up with such an imbalance, and then I realized that they simply don’t know better. American television is ubiquitous in the world, but the opposite isn’t true.

My next thought was the about American television executives who, surely, knew better, and still decided to go with the lowest content ratio possible, probably because they could get away with it.

Maybe this is the heart of the American culture: going for the maximum personal profit regardless of any morals or ethics as long as you can get away with it. Granted, it isn’t that new, original or radical an idea, but I found it interesting that it can somewhat be inferred from the overall abysmal quality of American television programming.

Kapitalismus bedeutet

Jeder hat das Recht seine eigenen Fehler zu machen.

Ob Grosse oder kleine Fehler.

Man darf dem Individuum nicht das Recht nehmen scheisse zu sein. (scheinbar)

Und so kriegen wir halt eine Welt mit einer Menschheit die praktisch beinahe nur noch scheisse ist und sich unkonstruktiv verhält.

Gratulation allen Beteiligten.

Dark Matter


Dark matter is a form of matter that is thought to account for approximately 85% of the matter in the universe and about a quarter of its total energy density. Most experts think dark matter to be ubiquitous in the universe. Dark matter is called dark because it does not appear to interact with observable electromagnetic radiation, such as light.

Left to you, Gentle Reader, to compare and contrast the properties of Dark Matter with the Five Laws of Stupidity.

Repetitive Shapes


At the beginning of May, in #Soweto, #South-Africa. Two guys were working on bicycles, and I captured them when they both were lying on the floor because it was for them the best way to reach the part of the cycle which needed maintenance.
I am not sure they were aware they were repeating the same shape - not exactly the same, as the feet of the second guy are crossed - but the situation attracted my attention. I was just thinking... we like to believe we are unique, but we have so much in common with many other guys, that we indistinctly repeat the same shapes and attitudes. I believe we also share same needs as all of us are part of the same humanity.

Why weren't there any mathematics professors in the Stone Age ? And why did we evolve a capacity for rational thought but at the same time such ferocious stupidity ? This review of a review has the answers !

diese Welt wird nicht am Klimawandel oder Atomenergie unter gehen sondern an sozialer Inkompetenz

Es ist ein so wichtiger Satz, dass ich auch mehrere Blogeinträge mit gleichen Inhalt verfasste:

diese Welt wird nicht am Klimawandel oder Atomenergie unter gehen sondern an sozialer Inkompetenz
  • Erklärung:
Diese Welt = die Menschen gemachte Welt auf diesem Planeten

Alle Probleme welche die Spezies bedrohen waren vorhersehbar, aber da sich die Menschheit auf kein nachhaltiges Konzept ja noch nicht mal auf eine Kommunikationsmittel einigen konnte (aus vom Kapitalismus gezielt gezüchteten individualistischen egoismen) riskiert man das Überlebenden der ganzen Spezies.

Nach dem Motto: wenn jeder an sich denkt ist doch an alle gedacht, oder etwa nicht?

Homo sei Sapiens.

Kapitalismus ist kollektiver Egoismus

Ihr habt lange genug mit euren Egoismen auf diese Endzeit hingearbeitet und doch weigert ihr euch vor euren Kindern zu sterben.

Eltern sollten ihre Kinder nicht überleben.

This is a fascinating story, read by a soothing male voice on YouTube. It's about 17 minutes long and you can read the text at the same time if you wish. I became aware of it while listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Very Bad Wizards, where Tamlr and Dave discuss it in depth; both being professors in the fields of philosophy and psychology repectively. You can find their related podcast episode online as well.
Let me know what you think of the story or about their conversation...

Genesis and Genetics, philosophy and fiction


Wonderful and devastating is Emanuel Swedenborg's book, with a quite misleading title, De cultu et amore Dei, "On the worship and love of God."
Wonderful because it provides scientific observations and conjectures on the origin of the universe and of the species, as well as on the structures of biology and psychology, interwoven with free interpretations of the Bible and forays into Christian theology. His pattern of the universe comes after Descartes', an author he often refers to, mostly in order to refute him. But much more relevant is the fact that Swedenborg's dynamic, evolutionary hypotheses are worked out earlier than the Laplace-Kant model, not to speak of Darwin. Unusually numerous are the quotations from Greek mythology. Satan gnostically plays a cosmic, even biological role that he will lose in Swedenborg's following works. As for the Bible, his exegesis fluctuates between scientific/psychological explanations, symbolism, and brilliant literary variations that aim at a direct competition with Milton's... show more

What Can Matter Be? A philosophical approach.EU2017....
The Electric Universe emphasizes that mass is not to be confused with matter, and it suggests a way of understanding the observed effects of mass. This leaves the question: what then is matter? To recognize matter is to attribute presence to an object. Understanding this process can loosen our grip on settled assumptions that otherwise appear incontrovertible. The talk is in three parts: I. From ancient Greek philosophy; II. From the science behind perception; and III. To the paradox that is the presence of matter.
Born in Ireland and living in Switzerland, Peter Moddel works with students and teachers, facilitating their endeavors through the recognition of the mind’s structures that guide individual ways of learning. As a passionate amateur astronomer, from Palomar times onward he followed the work of Halton Arp. Philosophical reflection grounded in observation rather than in ideas forms the basis of Peter’s thinking. The role of consciousness has been the common thread of his search for solutions t
