Those who believe that humans have an "immortal soul" must be able to explain how this soul (or mind...
brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I've read a theory that consciousness is out there, external to the brain which works like a TV transmitter to conduct consciousness into our bodies. This would mean that when the brain is damaged, it struggles as a transmitter to function but consciousness is still intact, just not getting through. Then when we die, consciousness continues, not needing a transmitter anymore.
I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like.

brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
Capitalism is great for promoting ingenuity and high standards but the inequality between the haves and the have-nots is far too wide. Social democracy has no issues with capitalism but tries to lessen the inequality between the two.

Ian Dury and the Blockheads. - Sex and Drugs and Rock n Roll. Live on TOTP 1977. [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
A talented man. I saw the Blockheads at a venue called the Stardust in Dublin where dozens of people were burned to death just a few years later. They played very well but my lingering memory was the aggression that came from the stage and permeated the air. Perhaps it was part of their persona; I just don't know.
So, it's Friday... what's up in your world?

We might gradually recede from memory into universal consciousness but for all we know it might be a good thing. The going, going, gone theme of the poem is very nicely developed. Another good one!
I heard on the radio that the average American uses three rolls of toilet paper a week.

Why blame the voodoo medicine man in Africa?
brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
He preaches the Prosperity Gospel. I think that's a really perverted twist on scripture.
If you are an athiest, is not life itself just a philosophy?

Two great people. Stephen is well-known so enough said. Gay Byrne is local Irish talent but he almost single-handedly brought Ireland into the 20th century at a time when we were dominated by the Catholic Church. He did it through a weekly TV show called The Late Late Show.

Why did an ancient Egyptian king erase all gods but Aten? | Aeon Essays
brentan comments on Feb 21, 2019:
I dunno. I thought it sounded reasonable to understand the situation of Hebrews and Egyptians living together in Egypt as the basis for some shared history. The commonalities, Moses being ethnically Hebrew and culturally Egyptian, the one true god, circumcision and the significance of the colour blue might indicate one came for the other.The last two, I accept, might have been shared across a huge number of cultures.The Hebrew exodus might have been the flight from Egypt (but not necessarily as the Bible writers tell it) after the priests rebelled in Egypt and went back to their old gods.
A question I saw elsewhere online today.

A sense of awe is very beneficial for our health and happiness according to a recent study.
brentan comments on Feb 21, 2019:
I remember a time when Americans expressed awe almost to the point of cliché. I can understand it after my first view of Snoqualmie Falls and the Columbian dam. You don’t hear so many positive expressions anymore as the country struggles with a new kind of civil war. My sense of awe comes from the arts these days – the perceptions of ‘inspired’ writers, musicians and other artists. But what about the benefits of feeling small in the face of the universe? And would the converse mean that the search for individuality and fame is a bad thing?

I want your opinions. Do you guys think what Israel is doing to Palestine is right?
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
I don't. I live in a country where part of it was planted with foreigners and the natives expelled to make room for them. The Jews should understand this too because the northern part of their country was deported and the land planted by foreigners too. But a sense of your own self-righteousness seems to trump justice very time.

Does anyone find that healthy sexual expression and openness is currently taking a unfortunate hit ...
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
If you're right, I better be more careful. I've never understood my sexuality better than I do these days and it's more complicated than I ever suspected. I tend to talk about it quite freely because of all the advice they gave about how it's good for me and good for others who might think they're the only ones dealing with these issues. But you may well be right and I'm damned if I understand why we might be going backwards instead of forwards. It's as if society is going forward legally and backwards on the street.

I'm using Alexa for a while and never thought of it like that. I have a choice of a few names so I use the name Echo for the second one, for no particular reason. But I believe the article's premise because I keep getting the feeling that every time law progresses social justice, the behaviour it's trying to improve gets channeled in a different way, sometimes underground.
