A sense of Wonder is properly the best thing to hold on to as we grow up as it makes life so much better later in life!

The Universe Used to be a Simple Place!

Leave a comment

I am near the end of Marcus Chown’s book ‘The Never-Ending Days of Being Dead’ which is described as the dispatches from the front line of science. That is it book on the current thinking of Scientist about Cosmology, the nature of the Universe and everything from a quantum to massive scale.

It makes very interesting reading especially when you think in my life time the way Scientist have thought about the Universe from microscopic to macroscopic scale have changed radically from a clear cut idea of Universe full of discreet bodies including Stars, Galaxies and the such which followed clear and well defined laws of Physics and so on to a Universe which is not so well defined because of the influence of Quantum Mechanics which could be part of a multidimensional space containing up to 11 dimensions. Even more strange our Universe could be one of many Universes floating in 5 dimensional space whose very nature looks nothing like the Universe around us!

All this is racially different to the view Scientist had when I was born in 1960s but all very exciting in so much in the new view of the Universe Scientists even have started to question the nature of intelligence, reality, our perception of reality even if we ever met aliens or what happens after we die.

I find all this very exciting and fascinating as it seams Science especially Cosmology has made great strives forward even in a world which has stagnated over the past decades both culturally and socially. If anything it shows just how bloody and single minded Scientist can be even if the world around them is stagnating!

It sort of gives me hope for our future as there are those Scientist out there who are doing pure scientific research into how our Universe works and not just for profit or so called benefit of humanity.

Unlike a growing majority of unenlightened modern people who see no place for such academic research as they do not think it has no relevance to the so called real world around them, I actually see it’s importance. In so much where did these people think have the technology they use everyday came from?

Not from purely research dome for profit as in the modern world but from pure academic research which happen to discover things which we have found useful.

It’s a shame our modern world is so blind to such things and only puts profit and money first and if it continues in this vain we will lose so much wonder of the world around us!

For the Love of the Spring

Leave a comment

It is for the first time in a long time I am enjoying Spring as the world around me blossoms back into life after Winter. I suspect it is because of the new house I live in and the fact that everyone and the dogs are far more relaxed even with the problems of life.

Also helps the new garden has been a big hit with ourselves and especially the dogs who are enjoying their new found space without disruption of activities, people and things which wound them up in the old place.

So, even with my depression playing up, I am loving Spring more than ever and for first time in a long time looking forward to the Summer.

Journal of a Lost Soul Part CCCLV

Leave a comment

I am having a nice peaceful Easter weekend avoiding the outside world mostly by choice though the outside world keeps poking it’s nose in when it is not wanted.

Though it has not been the most fun weekend or week to be truthful as my depression has decided to kick in just at a time when it can have the most effect when I am alone with my thoughts. But as always I will survive and hate the feeling the depression drags out of me.

The only god send being the company of our dogs who have been wonderful company and a nice connection to the world around me something much needed at the moment!

Depression: The Sneak Thief!

Leave a comment

At the moment life in the new house is going better than we expected though still a little difficult because of the fact we have moved home with all the upheavals that causes. There are always a number of niggling problems which are far from insurmountable and with a little work will be eventually solved but life is finally more settled for everyone in the new house.

But my depression currently is making feel as if everything is wrong and the problems are major ones which are going bring us down. On top of which I am starting to worry about things which may or may not happen as if I am almost willing something bad to happen to bring everything crashing to the ground again.

It not to say that will not happen as we have no real control over such things but someone who is not suffering depression would not worry about such things because they have no real control over it.

My depression currently is being a sneak thief taking those positive and settled feelings I should have about where I am currently in my life in so much we are finally living within our means and we finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.

All it leaves in it’s place is feelings of worry and anxiety over things which I have no real need to worry about, sometimes depression can be a difficult thing to live with!

The Modern World: A Paradise for Closed Minds!

Leave a comment

As I have gone through my life so far I have seen a great change in the world around me, this may be because I am growing older but I suspect it is more that our world has changed!

I have said before that our modern world now is a paradise and pitched towards a stupid populous rules by a few of slightly less stupid people but it is far worse than this as these people are closed minded to a point of being fearful of anything that is new.

It shows in the every day politics and religions of the world especially in the West which are now dominated by those who are conservative by nature who look backward to values which were even archaic decades ago. Such views including the sanctity of marriage, openly anti-homosexual and even extreme nationalism as shown in Eastern Ukraine recently by so called Pro-Russian Activists.

In the end our world around us is getting more closed minded and conservative to a point at some point it will stagnate and collapse much as the Roman Empire did in it’s time.

Those of us who are still open minded, passionate for change and the such should start to push the world forward again before it is too late!
