Minimalism

This term is often associated with an artform, in visual design as well as in music, where everything is scaled down to as few elements as possible. You may remember Philip Glass the composer who created Powaquatsi and Einstein on the beach, just to mention a few of his works. Now for some years minimalism […]

Valerian and the city of a thousand planets

This is definately a movie that I can recommend to anyone who enjoys scifi-movies. I discovered it recently quite by chance, watched the trailer and noticed that Luc Besson wrote, directed and produced it. He also made The fifth element which is quite a favourite of mine. So, I avoided reading any of the critics […]

Perceptions

I enjoy scientific and philosophical theories of the intricate compositions of this world and the universe. It is always enjoyable reading. Learning about the latest discoveries drawn from mathematical, physical and spiritual points of view. It is mere speculation though. However exciting and adventurous these findings may be. As I see it it is all […]

Retrocausality

Now there’s a term you don’t encounter every day. Simply put it means that the effect temporarily precedes its cause. Well, that is a bit of a mindbender isn’t it when looking at it from the 3-d perspective where time flows in a linear form forward. That is what we are used to and have […]

Quantum Physics and memes.

With our senses we are picking up data from our surroundings through our receptors in the mind/brain and possibly through receptors in our cell-environment too. And we are also emitting or transmitting energy, data and information the very same way to the energy-field, space or matrix if you like. And if everything is connected with […]

Non-linear time

Interesting concept – non-linear time. In some ways linear time itself is an interesting idea. Non-linear time however includes the mindboggling perspective of everything being in existance all at once. Future is in this scenario right here alongside the present and past. Which means that any and all of these timeperspectives are malleable – changeable. […]

Stories

I have been fascinated by stories since I can remember. From a really young age I would ask my parents and grandparents what it was like when they were young. I use to love, and still do,  hearing the stories they could remember from their childhood and youth about themselves and also what they could […]

The now

I have a wristwatch, analogue, no batteries, no numbers to indicate progression of time just lines in their place. A gift from my father some years back and I love it. I wind it every night and it keeps time perfectly. I prefer this antigue time-keeper to my modernday cellphone when it comes to checking […]

Just a thought

I am doing research for an article on intelligence, learning and the brain at the moment. And it is fascinating stuff, to say the least, especially in the light of the fact that we are so far away from even being able to define and pinpoint a thought in the physical brain. It does amaze […]

Ramanujan

I really enjoy watching movies that are based on real life-stories. And I have seen a fair amount of these over the years. They are incredibly educational. And with each and everyone of them I have added new knowledge and new interests to my reservoir. There are of course those stories that are founded in […]

Value of (some) human life

We have literally been flooded with images of the aftermaths of hurricanes, massive rainfalls and human tragedies across the globe. While I am all for getting the news out there, so to speak, I do wonder a bit what lies behind the amount of coverage an incident gets. August 13th. a terror attack kills 13 […]

Jazz

Ben Webster on saxophone filling the air with soft jazz, Nina Simone and her unforgettable voice opening ever so slightly to worlds gone by and Erroll Garner, Al de Meola, Mills Brothers, Andrew Sisters and, and, and……………need I say more. The music of masters, a time forever existing in some corner of my memories and […]
