I would love to see the stats for what the public read these days. I love fiction from time to time, not having had the confidence to read 'heavier' material until I went to college as a mature student. I feel so much compassion for today's working people that I don't wonder if they spend their spare time with light material.

brentan comments on Nov 6, 2018:
I'm thinking how our recent referendum that removed blasphemy as a crime from our laws has been a cynical waste of time on the part of our politicians. I don't believe Muhammad was a pedophile. I want to say that first. Of course, that is not the point. It's a question of principle. Is it a violation of free speech? Second, there never was complete freedom of speech. Slander has always been an actionable offense. Can you slander a man who is dead for 1400 years? I read a case where the English politician Gladstone was accused of immorality committed before his death and his sons took the accuser to court and won their case. But Gladstone of course was not dead long when it happened, not like Muhammad. Maybe we can only conclude that peace on the streets of Europe was the prime concern of the judges.
United we stand.
brentan comments on Nov 6, 2018:
I think the reason for the great difficulty in uniting is biological, as if the genes do not believe humanity can continuously function and thrive without competition. If this picture is correct, then society is based on that fact and shows it in its competitive hierarchies. The thing that isn't definite is whether the genes are correct, or perhaps better to say, still correct. Maybe it's time to at least try. Oddly enough, that is what religion has been attempting to do since its inception.
Why do I keep doing this too myself? Anyone? Note: I'm also the one who lights the flames.

brentan comments on Nov 3, 2018:
I've been watching Jordon Peterson discuss this idea for some time now. I think that while order is used as the opposite of chaos, it's really about meaning. For me, the Buddhist idea is that the universe is a god and it's mind is the dharma. Perhaps the Western equivalent can't help giving this mind a character, a personality. On the other hand, studies in evolution show how the wondrous qualities of the universe and its inhabitants can come about over time. That might be the meaning of meaning - the ways (habits) of the universe that have ensured its continuance And the meaning of our lives? It might just be whatever meaning we put into them.

brentan comments on Nov 2, 2018:
What’s the man saying? The pull of gravity is too weak to correlate with the 3 +1 dimension universe? What do you do then? Multiply the existing pull of gravity to make it equal to the necessary pull of gravity. That will give us the correct amount of matter in the universe. It won’t tell us anything about dimensions. But light works in a different way. Light will diffuse faster in proportion to the number of dimensions that exist. In the 3 + 1 universe, the 3 dimensions gradually extend into the 4th dimension. What happens to light when the 3 dimensions extend into the 4th? What happens to light if there are 11 or even 25 dimensions? Is light the key to demonstrating 11 or more dimensions?
