It is interesting how those who are most passionate about the idea that  we got here by evolution tend also to be the ones who put a pretty low priority on reproducing themselves.. It’s like the whole natural selection plan was invented just to culminate with their freedom to be free of the burdens of […]

How we ruin it.

You can bottle up a mighty whitewater river and put it on a shelf — But then it really loses the essence of it’s character. We do the same thing with “Life” when we try to terminate it on our own happiness. Life is meant to be enjoyed as it flows through us and into […]

Focus usually comes at a cost. If you focus up close, you lose clarity in the distance. And vice-versa. your peripheral vision fades if you focus too closely.

You know what is really interesting?  Near Death Experiences (NDE).  What do you think of the reports of people who died and then came back (i.e. were resusitated)?
