WHAT’S AT THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE?

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, November 20, 2022, In : Knowledge/Wisdom 

WITH all the new discoveries being made as astronomers and cosmologists work together in conjunction with the Hubble and James Webb space telescopes, we keep creeping closer, day by day to answering the supreme questions surrounding what our universe is all about, and what came before it. Personally, I love astronomy, and like Gregory Ranlin in William Maltese’s books/screenplays FLICKER 1 — https://www.amazon.com/dp/0984555242 — and FLICKER 2 — https://www.amazon.com/dp/0999693875 ...

WISE MEN DON’T GIVE BITCOINS

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, July 25, 2022, In : books 

I was musing today over the three wise men who followed the new star to a barnyard and gave, not the parents, but the newborn, gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And what the child later would have thought had they given gifts of bitcoins, samples of the latest fragrances and a tree to plant and save the planet. I wonder.


Typically, the gifts we give and receive are enmeshed in feelings, imagination and hope. As a child bitcoins, unseen as they are, wouldn’t have evoked any feelings o...

REALLY? Well, no, if you’re thinking a balmy paradise on Earth. That is, there’s no where I know left on Earth that isn’t directly or indirectly affected by Homo sapiens. And, hey, with temperatures rising this summer, I’m not sure everyone wants a place in the super-sun, or it’s obverse, a place in the super-cold snow-and-ice replete with bomb cyclones, thank you very much climate change. Or, if you disbelieve in science, then “meteorological extremism” — a very politically c...

WISHING WELL

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, November 9, 2021, In : books 

ALMOST everyone has approached water — in a well, around a fountain, under a bridge, in a brook or stream — and made a wish. But today, I want to muse about not the wishing well, but simply wishing well. Doing it right. Yesterday I posted about needs, wants, hopes and desires. Now it’s time to talk about how to wish well.


I don’t say this lightly. Not because of magic or compelling people to make a wish come true, but because, in the most basic sense, making a wish is all about direc...

COMMON SENSE

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, October 11, 2021, In : books 

OR should that read “Common Cents?” Certainly in today’s world money and power always “Trump” sense. But what I’m cogitating on is the first word, “common.” To me, common implies commonality, something we share with each other as humans, with animals as fellow animals, plants as, well, living things just living a bit slower, sometimes longer but certainly different from ourselves. I don’t think there’s much “common” sense left these days, replaced instead by “uncommo...
