  1. Axioms Against Cognitive Distortion

    Are you certain of this? Asking for a friend...
  2. What are you listening to?

  3. Which books sit on your nightstand?

    D's writings were pivotal experiences for me. My own familial experiences with religious and governmental power and misuse due to human nature resonated deeply with his insights in The Grand Inquisitor and Crime and Punishment. The Grand Inquisitor arrived after my Apostacy from fundamentalist christianity, and during the height of my study of human nature, social expression and familial conditioning. I was given The Brothers Karamosov during my second year at University. The insight and tone, flavored by D's penetrative insights of human nature (Crime and Punishment came next) were like encountering cool clear water on a desert hike.
  4. Transgender Q&A

    Always so convenient when they want and insist on government intrusion. And it's usually on other's lives, not their own.
  5. Which books sit on your nightstand?

    Life changing work. Incredible insight. Bohm's work with Krushnamurti spanned 35 years after he was ousted from the American physics scene by Oppenheimer and Einstein. He was simply too far ahead of them to be tolerated. One of my all time Heroes! I have a study I compiled some years ago on he and DT Suzuki, comparing their descriptions of life and cosmology. Many of their insights are nigh on word for word identical. Reminiscent of Fritjoff Capra's insights into the similarities of Quantum Theory, Taoist, Zen and Brahmanic Cosmology, in his seminal work The Tao of Physics.
  6. What is your main take away from the journey of life?

    The currency of life force is attention.

  15. Share myths, anecdotes, short stories etc.

    The basis of modern Christianity has no incentives at all for good deeds or works of the heart. It is a Grace based system of being saved by Faith alone. Through his works, not yours are ye saved. Ha! What you think and believe is all important. What you did in life, is nigh on worthless so long as you believe the right doctrines... eventually. (and that belies according to those who congregate and decide what doctrines/dogma that comprises)
