Being human and being

There are two fundamental aspects to being human, our physical being and our psychological being. Our physical being is driven by necessity, the necessities of life, at every level. Our inner being is driven by our sense (great or small) of quality of life. I am going to pick on and make an example ofContinue reading “Being human and being”

An appeal for help – Mike’s story, told by his dad.

I’m going to try and keep this as relevant to the appeal as possible but there is a story to be told here so no matter how much I try to do that, it’s going to be long but the hope is, by the time you’ve read it, you too will understand why it’s soContinue reading “An appeal for help – Mike’s story, told by his dad.”

It’s notContinue reading “A Vagabond Life”

Washing the brain washing

It’s a long and drawn out process… I was born not knowing that the universe had given me the free gift of life, my parents hadn’t realised this either, or, if they had, they never thought to mention it to me.

Junk Technology and Human Degradation

Any technology, including artificial intelligence, designed to interface with humans that does not take into account human error and fallibility is junk technology. Charging people for this failure is a growing problem and the imposition of increasingly excessive penalty charges is an affront to humanity.
