Preamble to a Novella The Suprahumans had long been the progenitors of nature and the masters of macroreality, which we call 'reality'. Possessing radically advanced metabrains, the Suprahumans are countless evolutionary leap, bounds and shuffles ahead of we mere humans, which they call 'Lipoids', possessing primitive protobrains. After thousands of... Continue reading

Well, it has been quite some time since I've posted... but then, real life beckoned. The interesting thing to note, now sinking back into my armchair with my MacBook, is the number of sheer retards on DALnet. It's a strange and bizarre thing, but since the advent of the God... Continue reading

So last night I was hanging around with some anarcha-feminists watching Star Trek: the Next Generation. It's always a cheap thrill to when the earlier episodes involve Counsellor Troy materializing in a miniskirt and pouting her lips ever so slightly as she explains to Captain Picard (without a tincture of...

In a recent post by Adam Tinworth, as to God's place in education, I have spent some time pondering a contention of one speaker, in particular.

Ah, left off on an interesting, albeit sullen, note. I tend to think that values based on beliefs is a cogent argument... until one assumes our values, be they alike, must all come from the same place in order to be valid.

If you have a chance to interject -- be it "that" kind of symposium -- perhaps ask why religion is culturally invigorating and art isn't. I mean, sure there's a way to enrich children without those kind of dogmatic overtones.

Well, off to a cracking start, thus far. I do believe interfaith schools will never flourish in urban areas; population density seems to play a factor in interfaith relations... so much so that interest groups are feasible in these areas. However, small-town interfaith relations, I would hope, would work in terms of multifarious immersion. It's not all that different to faith as it is to big city life vs. small town life: small groups find common ground, large groups diversify. Is any of this yet coming up?

That is like the funniest thing since Keanu Reeves got cast in the Matrix! (or any leading role, for that matter) It's just nice to see comedy be formulaic rather than a string of haphazard mishaps, ie. both lead roles in Speed! :D
