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.

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.
