Quote of the Day

Spread the Word

“The ordinary modes of human thinking are magical, religious, social, and personal. We want our wishes to come true; we want the universe to care about us; we want the approval of those around us; we want to get even with that s.o.b who insulted us at the last tribal council. For most people, wanting to know the cold truth about the world is way, way down the list.”

JOHN DERBYSHIRE

In “ordinary times”, now long past some 2 years ago, I would have totally agreed with that quote. However, now is very, very different – at least for me. I DO want to know the “cold truth about the world”… It’s difficult to change something if you don’t know much about how it currently works.
