Not only does our thinking present proof of our existence, but it is our thinking that draws the first draft, and subsequent drafts, of the map for our life journey. A philosopher from a long-ago age, Solomon once wrote, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” The claim, and the supporting evidence, suggests that we become what we think about. Who we are as beings is crafted by the ways in which we respond to external stimuli as well as the way we reflect upon and respond to that which has been, that which we hope will... Continue reading

Cogito ergo sum. I think. What an utterly exhausting curse it can be to exist as a thinking being. The thinking never ceases. The perception of a stimulus, the processing of the never-ending stream of stimuli, and the inevitable response to what we have perceived begins at some point soon after conception and never ends until the moment of our death. There is no respite. From the moment that a fetus is capable of cognitive activity until the last breath is taken, there is not a single moment in which we are not “thinking.” We are thinking even when we...

Cogito ergo sum. Though few among us are fluent in Latin, most of us with a degree of education have likely heard this phrase, in at least its English translation. “I think, therefore I am.” Or, more loosely translated, “I am thinking, therefore I exist.” Those more simple, or those younger, or those with a more abridged volume of life experience may find themselves proud and satisfied with their ability to quote this statement of supposed profundity by the seventeenth-century French Philosopher, Rene Descartes. However, for those of us who are more complex (some would exchange the word confused), more... Continue reading

Okay, given the economy we're in, it isn't what it used to be. But, one dollar in the hands of a million different people who are all committed to helping one another out with financial crises, or the funding of dreams, or major necessary and luxury purchases is still a powerful thing. A few years ago I woke up with one of those middle-of-the-night ideas. So many people are hurting financially. But also, so many people would like to make purchases or pursue dreams that are just financially out of reach. But what if they belonged to a worldwide community... Continue reading

Thank you for your interest in the story that is about to unfold. Though the tale you'll read here is fiction, I have a sense that it will not be too far removed from a reality that may soon be upon us. The story will unfold one page and one day at a time, allowing you to follow each installment with a brief time commitment. We will begin when there are one hundred individuals signed up as readers (subscribers). As soon as the 100th reader registers, a post will be written here (that will show up in your feed reader...

Hey Wil! Funny story. I'm sitting around here on a boring Saturday watching "I Love the 80's!"....all freaking afternoon....and I keep seeing this guy who looks familiar. I asked my wife who he was. She couldn't remember. So I googled the name and found out you're Wesley Crusher! Dang...loved that show. And loved your character. Great to find you blogging here. Just wanted to say hello. Be well and do good. Bill Huffhine www.alookbeyond.com
