  • Different definitions of "basic needs"

    I’m right now in the “lucky” situation of getting paid by a customer, for some programming I did for them in the last months and weeks. The invoice is slightly overdue, but at least the money is coming (it’s needed over here …). In my experience as a year-long self-employed, it’s not clear if and […]

  • Way cool: Overland Missions

    It has been some time now that I searched the Internet again and again, for a group of people with the same style and interests as mine.

Do you think God could be found doing so? There’s a guy who preferred his pride to his girlfriend, and now […]

Sadly, without a video clip for now, as I currently have troubles uploading to JumpCut to edit the clip […]

  • Logicians also should accept themselves

    Decomposition as hindering being “intuitively human” Or: “Why logic is no valid maxim”. “Maxim”, for the context of this post, shall mean “the single, highest principle that guides all activity of a human being”. When conducting research in any aspect of analytic anthropology, an anthropological model arises according to which man is composed of components. […]
