In the end, it's all about survival! by weakmagneto on March 24th, 2012, 12:49 pm
Right now I am posting this blog from a tiny remote fly-in First Nation community, Latitude 53 N. The bandwidth here is limited, but I still have WIFI! YAAAY!

I had an interesting discussion the other day about survival. We considered the following situation, what if you were from a large urban city like Toronto, New York or LA and you had to survive in a small remote fly-in community with only people whose culture is unfamiliar to you. There is no running water or electricity. No store. You were given a small furnished house to stay in for a month. You had to supply everything else yourself. The nearest airport is 50 km away and you have to rely on rides that you arrange. What would you bring (remember freight is very expensive to travel up north and the amount you can take is limited)?

Then we considered another possible scenario, what if a person from a small northern fly-in First Nation community (who was familiar with smaller urban centres with populations of 10,000 and...

Harmonia Philosophica philosophy portals by skakos on November 24th, 2012, 10:57 pm

Main Harmonia Philosophica philosophy portals include:

1. http://harmoniaphilosophica.wordpress.com/

2. http://harmonia-philosophica.blogspot.gr/

They both try to show that the only way to reach the truth is to realize that only One exists. One is what makes all antitheseis disappear within the "belief in the illogical". Beause what we call "Logic" is a very dangerous illusion. Life is itself inherently illogical. We must forget how we think in order to truly think. Harmonia Philosophica shows how we can accoplish that, by showing the hidden domas behind every thought - religious and scientific alike. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater and greater things...

Masters dissertation. by Nick on May 5th, 2009, 9:39 am
The deadline for my masters dissertation is rapidly approaching. I am currently trying to go through my draft in order to tart it up and make it into a thirty page rollercoaster of emotions rather than the dull chronicle of what is meant to be a year's worth of work that it currently is. I wish that had I not been so lazy and actually managed to make a decent measurement before the Easter holiday (or during it) as was planned. I then could have spent more time writing it up until I was happy with it.

Getting it out of the way will be good though. In a mere 11 hours I'll be one step closer to graduating.
