Human Humans and Human Animals

In no case is an animal activity to be interpreted in terms of higher psychological processes if it can be fairly interpreted in terms of processes which stand lower in the scale of psychological evolution and development.” Morgan’s Canon…

Dream And Reality, by Dove of Peace, an Iranian woman

"If you only live in the dream and not in the reality

then you will get lost in your imagination.

If you only live in the reality and not in the dream

then you will be lost in the materialistic world.

Make therefore your reality to a dream and…

An Iranian Woman Writes of Her Journey

"Tragedy after tragedy changed my life. Even though they changed me, but always, I have refused to be reduced by them... 

"I am an Iranian woman, a researcher, a learner, a lecturer and they call us the third generation and some call us the burnt generation, but I am very much alive! 

"I have been student my entire life, ... I started teaching at a college and became the youngest lecturer in the college, however my passion to gain more knowledge pushed me yet again behind the…

Learning Life Skills

Violence after violence impacted my development. Those episodes developed defenses in me and impacted the ways I think and feel and act. Why? Who benefited by the violence? Who paid the price for each experience? Do other families have such memories? What makes a family healthy? 

I am a citizen of the United States of America, a questioner, doubter, thinker, dreamer, visionary. I know the feeling of fear and helplessness.…

Blaming the victim?

Is culpability absolute or is there a sliding scale? Can the victim and the perpetrator share culpability? If commission of 1 crime always results in 1 culpability, but the perpetrator is only responsible for .8 culpability who owns the rest? What about in a 50/50 situation? 

Homicide law in the western rules reflects a wide variation in culpability as reflected in the types of murder: homicide, manslaughter, 1st degree, 2nd degree, involuntary, self defense, and so forth. These…

The Wisdom of Bertolt Brecht

Saturday morning.  My wife sleeps in because she can and I don’t because my sleep-in gene wigged out about 10 squares back.  Feed the cats, check email, scope out what’s going on with Atheist Nexus and Car and Driver Backfires and it’s not even 7:30 yet.  Okay, time for breakfast, then.  A bowl of Rice Chex and a glass of OJ later and eight o’clock is still at least 15 minutes away.  A quick check on YouTube tells me that not a whole lot new is going on there, but, out of somewhere in…

Irish Limerick

The altar boy the altar boy
The dirty little beast
He filled his ass with broken glass
And circumcised the priest

Tending the Epicurean Garden

My new book Tending the Epicurean Garden is now live on amazon. I am very thrilled that, after the many months of hard work that went into the book, I'm finally able to take others on this adventure with me to discover Epicureanism on its own terms.

There are sources on Epicureanism, but many are indirect and some are hostile. It's important for us in the Epicurean movement that…

Evaluating Threat

This is an incomplete thought experiment. It should go without saying that it isn't rigorous or backed up by anything except 'common sense', whatever that is. In this post I'll examine a scenario by changing variables individually in series. Is there an alternate interpretation of the scenario? Are there variables I haven't considered? …
