sun rays into forest“I Am One of the Searchers”  There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know. Unless it be to share our laughter.

We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, not prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls; that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to have to prove ourselves to another or compete for love.

For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers,

for lonely men and women

who dare to ask from life everything

good and beautiful. It is for those who

are too gentle to live among wolves.

A Writer’s Diary
Virginia Woolf – Part #1

Explaining
in Virginia Woolf’s words,
the major reasons why
it is an essential means
to learn writing
by keeping a writer’s diary.

It exercises your mind,
no censorship,
and someday
you can use
to create
your own
autobiography.

In “The Writer’s Diary,”
Virginia Woolf, herself,
wrote unedited,
free flow,
stream of consciousness
and is
quite intelligent.

In the opening,
some words
from Leonard Woolf,
Virginia Woolf’s husband.

I find
a real
understanding
of
Virginia Woolf.

I feel
as if I can
hear her voice
speaking
through
her words.

The excerpts
will be
an ongoing
presentation
of
Virginia
Woolf.

OMINOUS? PERSONS OF INTEREST

Transparent Machines

We want safety. We Want privacy. Do we need to give up one for the other? Is it frightening to know others know all the superficial things about us? What does it matter? Our inner being is always changing. Much too difficult to follow by any intangible object. What are we protecting our selves from?

How We Read Each Other’s Minds

How We Read Each Other’s Minds

Rebecca Saxe: How we read each other’s minds

Sensing the motives and feelings of others is a natural
talent for humans. But how do we do it? Here, Rebecca
Saxe shares fascinating lab work that uncovers how the
brain thinks about other peoples’ thoughts — and judges
their actions.

Alan Greenspan said: “I know you think you understand
what you thought I said but I am not sure you realize
what you heard is not what I meant.”

Three things about the project:

1. Special brain

2. Development of the system

3. Difference between people

Special brain region: It is where you think thoughts.

Kids learn that other people can have beliefs that
are different then their own.

No. 1 Kid leaves a cheese sandwich on a Pirate chest
A wind comes along & blows away the cheese sandwich
onto the grass.

No. 2 Kid comes along. He loves cheese sandwiches too.
He has a cheese sandwich and takes a bite of it.
He decides he needs to go to do something so he puts
his cheese sandwich on the Pirate chest.

No. 1 Kid returns with his soda he goes to eat his
cheese sandwich. Which cheese sandwich does he take.
He takes the cheese sandwich on the Pirate chest.
Was he bad for taking No. 2 Kid’s cheese sandwich?

No. 2 Kid sees that Kid No. 1 taking his cheese
sandwich. What should he think?

Grace & a friend were taken on a tour of a chemical
factory & they were taking a break. Her friend said
she wanted a cup of coffee with some sugar.

What if Grace no. 1 when she went to get the coffee she
sees that there are two packets, one labelled poison.
Grace puts the packet of poison in her friend’s cup of
coffee & gave it to her friend.

It turns out the packet was not really poison.

Grace once again is on a tour with her friend &
her friend wants a cup of coffee. Grace goes for the
coffee & this time picks a packet that says sugar on
it & puts the packet into her friend coffee. She gives
her the cup of coffee.

It turns out that the sugar was actually
poison this time after all. Her friend dies.

How much is Grace to blame for either act?

One she puts poison in the coffee but it turns
out not to be poison.

Two she puts a packet she thinks is sugar into
the coffee & it turns out to be poison.

She tried to do harm when no harm was actually done.

And then she does harm with no intention to do harm.

What kind of punishment should Grace receive?

People feel it less ok when the person dies.

How responsible is she for either act?

We have a special brain system to be able to think
about other peoples thoughts. Judging other people.
Differences in adults. We develop this from the time
of childhood into adults. Developing moral judgements.

“The fact remains that getting people right is not what
living is all about anyway, it is getting them wrong, that is
living. Getting them wrong & wrong & wrong & then on
careful consideration, getting them wrong again.”
— Philip Roth

Onora O’Neill: What We Don’t Know About Trust

Video Published on Sep 25, 2013
Trust is on the decline, and we need to rebuild it. That’s a commonly heard suggestion for making a better world … but, says philosopher Onora O’Neill, we don’t really understand what we’re suggesting. She flips the question, showing us that our three most common ideas about trust are actually misdirected.
