Self Worth and Self Realization

I feel like this is going to be one of those sappy posts where I try to make myself, or who ever is reading this feel good. If not that, the initial presumption, based off the title, will give that pre-conceived perception of what this post might be about. And, well, it might be exactly…

People Are Weird.

The one thing I’ve learned over the past several months more than anything is this: People are weird. Now, this doesn’t seem like a surprising thing to say because let’s face it; people are weird. There are a lot of weird people out there. But the truth of the matter is this, most of the time, your…

Life, Friends, and Self-Development

The past few days I got to spend time with a really good friend. I haven’t known them for long, but it’s one of those people that, although you haven’t known known for years, it feels like you have. And, well, we talked a lot, mostly about people, life, and things in general, often diving unusually…

Young, Dumb, and Stupid Decisions.

I haven’t written for over a month, almost 2 months, and I’m fully aware of this. I’ll just be transparent to whoever is reading this and say it’s because I really haven’t felt like writing. But I have my reason for this, too. In short, life is weird. I don’t really know how to say…

There are quite a few number of atheists, specifically, new-atheists, who have this notion of religion in that they believe that it was an unnecessary by-product by way of what is called a “Genetic Fallacy”. Basically, it’s the idea that just because a certain trait or characteristic, even way of acting in the world, doesn’t…

Horus and Jesus Christ: A Transformation Story.

I don’t know if anyone actually closely follows my blog, but if you do, I want to say a few things. First, I apologize I haven’t been writing these past few days, and it’s not because I didn’t have anything to write about, but rather, I didn’t yet know how I wanted to write it.…

The Death of Expertise

I just finished a book called The Death of Expertise by Tom Nichols in which he brings up a compelling argument of the consequences of a post-internet era where all the information you can want or need is readily available, whether factual or not. But that’s not his only case. He also brings up several points, namely,…

The Origins and History of Consciousness: The Uroboros and The Great Mother

n the past few days, I’ve been thinking quite a lot lately. It’s not that uncommon for me to think deeply about a particular topic, but this time it’s been quite different for whatever reason, so I thought I’d finally write about it. I will mention ahead of time, there will likely be parts that…

The Righteous Mind

I’ve been reading a book, actually listening to one, though I am reading one, called “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt. It’s a fascinating book, one that covers a wide variety of topics and themes, but the overarching theme is all about moral psychology, specifically, three different aspects of it. He breaks down his book…
