Peace in the Middle East and Mechanical Spiders

16th of Aug 2014

Today I was hanging out with my girlfriend, ranting about various subjects, and the conversation turned toward the Middle East. Specifically, how best to bring peace to that area. An intriguing idea was brought up.

Perfection and Philosophy

6th of Aug 2014

(Note: My hosting service migrated my site to another server yesterday, and it locked out the site. Apologies to anyone who stopped by.)

Every so often, I write a post with the philosophy tag and I'm always uncomfortable doing so. Philosophy is so much more than stating an opinion or simplified approach to life. It's examining ideas, ideas in action, and the implications/results of ideas. A single, reasonably sized blog post can't do much more than introduce an idea (and maybe support the idea with a few illustrative examples). Not much insight can be found or shared, especially compared to the Dialogues, Summa Theologica or any other major philosophical work.

Examining a Life

16th of Jul 2014

One of the perennial refrains of spiritual wisdom is that life is not about finding a box, and then spending the rest of your life fitting into that box. It's about discovering (and being) who you are, then trusting life to guide you where you fit. One of those aphorisms that people love to quote to appear profound, but is very difficult to achieve in practice. I have a hard time applying that to my writing, not least because of my artistic temperament.
