Why many don’t get The Secret

I’m often sad to see that many completely misunderstand the meaning of “The Secret”.   Many people misunderstand what it is teaching or promoting.

It’s not confirmation bias.   And it’s not promoting “delusionally positive thinking”.   It certainly does not advocate daydreaming and taking no action.   It’s not about just wishing for what you want.   There’s a lot more to it than that.  You must first *know* that you are worthy of having all that you want.   You must know that what you want is in alignment with good…. and that it is for the higher good of all that is.

It’s simply real magic.   But if you can’t open your mind to that concept…..   then, yes.    You’re absolutely correct.   It will never work….. for *you*.

I’ve been using it for many years now, and I guarantee that it absolutely works 100% of the time.    And it’s real…. not delusional.

Of course, if you think romance is simply an intoxicating drug like alcohol….. and that love is not real….  then you can never experience magic in your life.

Love is real.   Magic is real.   …..but it only exists if you truly *believe*.

This is probably why practitioners of the new religion of “science” ( often called scientism ) are so very sad.  They are unable to believe in *anything* that hasn’t had a recent study published in a religious magazine called a “scientific journal”.    For them, nothing else exists.  Nothing else is real.    Their perspective of reality is severely self-censored and limited….. like a horse wearing blinders.

All the best,

Why Men Lie and Cheat

Women should stop looking for a man who will be honest…..  and start looking at Why and How they are encouraging their men to lie….. by their own stubborn arrogant self-righteous judgemental attitudes of not accepting men as the dogs they are…. and not accepting men as the beings they naturally are.    Monogamy is extremely *not* natural.

If you allowed them to tell you who they really are….. and what they really want…. without judging them and acting all superior to them…. they would have no *reason* to lie.   And “cheating” wouldn’t be cheating….. if they could tell you honestly without your judging them and leaving them.

If your husband tells you that he wants to have sex with other women at any time… Will you accept that and agree?

If your answer is no…..   Then he will be lying to you….. you can be sure of that.

Because it is the nature of male human beings.

All men keep this a secret because otherwise they would be alone. Women don’t want to accept this fact.

That’s why they end up hurt….. again and again and again and again…. Throughout their lives.

Maybe it doesn’t sounds reasonable to you.   But it is 100% nature.

We are animals….. Smart animals.    But we are still animals.   We have basic needs.    We need air.   We need water.  We need sleep.  We need food.  ….and males need sex with a variety of partners…. as much as women need to breath air.

The @Uber App Needs Work

The app should show a stopwatch so I can visibly *see* how many minutes it’s been since I requested a car. I don’t remember the exact minute I requested it. If the driver seems to be going in ridiculous circles or in the wrong direction, I’d prefer to cancel and get a different driver. But if it’s been 5 minutes, I’ll be penalized for canceling.  If anything, it’s the driver who is driving in ridiculous circles or driving the complete wrong way for 15 minutes…. that we *should* be able to cancel without penalty.  We need a visible (accurate) counting timer on the main screen.  The original estimated time of arrival should also be displayed.    It should turn red when it’s been 5 minutes.  It should turn green again after its been more than 5 minutes longer than the original estimate ( when it’s free to cancel again ).

I also notice that your app now hides the driver’s rating under another layer. It used to show it right on the top screen. That’s bad. It needs to be visible at the moment he confirms the request… so I have the option of cancelling quickly if his rating is very low.

Thank God for Gavin

Gavin Andresen cares very deeply about Bitcoin. He’s just trying to warn us all that it will become unreliable if this problem continues to be ignored year after year. He’s done everything he can to get us to pay attention. And now, finally, I think he has succeeded in bringing the issue to the forefront of public discourse.

We should all be extremely grateful that we have him…. And for the work he has done and continues to do.

Obviously, his is a thankless job.

Nothing Better to Waste Your Money On?

” Surely the Department of Homeland Security has more pressing concerns than to fritter away precious time and resources on something that shouldn’t even be criminalized in the first place. ”

My comments on each of the major proposed solutions to the #bitcoin block size limit issue.

My comments on each of the major proposed solutions to the bitcoin block size limit issue.

This news item is good summary of the most talked about proposals.  ( see http://bw.gl/zj

•  Solution 1 is the best solution.

•  Solution 2 simply kicks the can down the road.

•  Solution 3 involves being a fortune teller.  But nobody can predict accurately enough.

•  Solution 4 makes sense.  Especially to readjust the block-size limit on the basis of the size of recent blocks over the past month…. or over the past week.

•  Solution 5 could work, but only if the miners vote — only. Because a vote of users or shareholders would have no authoritative power anyway. Miners have ultimate veto power. May as well let them vote and be done with it. Imagine users ( who are uneducated ) vote one way, and miners disagree. Miners simply will not use that software. Big mess.

•  Solution 6 sounds insane, ridiculous, scary, dangerous, and unnecessary.

What do you think?

Censorship or Civility?

Acting as moderator of various types of public forums, I’ve had to remove a few people once in a while.  I often receive criticism from some who seem to think that the concept of “free speech” means anyone has the right to say absolutely anything harmful or hurtful to anyone else.    I couldn’t disagree more.

Some “very smart” people have sadly, apparently, grown up in a world, or in a way, that has led them to believe that it’s somehow ok to be rude, impolite, condescending, or as in some cases…. outright attacking, mocking, ridiculing, bullying, trolling, etc.   The culture of the internet has helped create a virtual world where people think that it’s ok for adults to speak with each other the way they trash talk on youtube comments, and 4chan, and reddit.   But I was not raised that way.   I have a different value system about civil adults respecting each other.   Some might think it’s censorship.   But, for me at least, life is too short for me to read or hear such disrespectful stuff.   So it’s not censorship, it’s being a curator of the types of conversations and people one surrounds himself with…. at least to a very minimal standard of human decency and respect.  That’s all.

I suppose I wouldn’t do very well in the British Parliament.   ;-)
