Life “Out There” And Here
June 21, 2018

The kind of thing I love to learn about – because it is humbling and awe-inspiring, but which also begs the question Peter Gabriel asked: Why are we not more interested in the intelligent life beyond our own species that’s here on Earth? And if you think we are, you are technically right, but spiritually? The way we treat the rest of life on Earth, I would say our interest is largely exploitative, and that’s not the kind of interest I am talking about, because if it qualifies under the same heading as “interest”, life out there should be damn glad light years separate us – and we had better be glad life such as ours, out there, cannot reach us.

THE CANDLE
May 21, 2018

It took thirteen billion years for the human race to arrive, and here we are on a planet that occupies a “Goldilocks Zone” of miraculous perfection–a planet that has no habitable neighbors for light years
 

We are, quite simply, the greatest accomplishment known to us in the universe, and we achieved enlightenment and industry in only the last several thousand years. However, we are steady on a violent and irresponsible course of self-destruction, and causing great pain and suffering along the way

We inhabit a world that shows a ‘universe-defying’ diversity of life, in a solar system devoid of such. We are just beginning – as a space faring species, but space travel should be for knowledge… however–more and more, it seems it is going to have to be for survival–which is a shame of epochal proportions

We must save our species and as many others as we can. We must dramatically alert more of the world–China, India, and the already biosphere-tanking mega-polluters: America, Europe, and Australia… to the urgency of this cause, not just its fact of being

We must garner a level of ubiquitous agreement on the awareness of what I call the Veritas Maximus, or Maximum Truth, and we must dispel the misinformation obscuring it

Why They Criticize Stephen Hawking
March 14, 2018

180314001250-stephen-hawking-smiling-1979-restricted-exlarge-169people criticize hawking because intelligence scares them, when it should comfort themーbut it doesn’t, because intelligence takes courage; when you are willfully ignorant, you cannot easily make those connectionsーand you become unintelligentーmeaning you can’t recognize intelligence (or truth, or morality or much else). And the reason this chain of events is taking place is many of these people have to justify their world view, which does not square with reason, common sense or, for that matter, the genius they become a part of – such as that of scientists and other honest people, like Hawking.
