The Cult of Reason was France's first established state-sponsored atheistic religion, intended as a replacement for Catholicism during the French Revolution. After holding sway for barely a year, in 1794 it was officially replaced by the rival Cult of the Supreme Being, promoted by Robespierre. Both cults were officially banned in 1801 by Napoleon Bonaparte … Continue reading Why Did The French Revolution Dared To Bore People?
Readers of that blog know I'm haunted by several persons. A friend, an uncle from my mother, and other people. It's hard to deny there's a kind of war going on. Sometimes it's difficult to see the war: East vs West or Man against Man? One thing is sure though: your allies will be critical … Continue reading What If The Dead Had Lost A Battle?
Today I was listening to one of my favourite songs (Cosmik Debris by Frank Zappa). As a former yoga practitioner, I remember the end of our 30 minutes session always finished by "Om Shanti" like in the song by Zappa. So I decided to investigate. Om Shanti is a mantra, greeting and parting salutation used … Continue reading Is The Universe About Vibration?
"It's Probably Me" is a song that was originally released in 1992 as an all-star collaboration by Sting featuring Eric Clapton, Michael Kamen and David Sanborn. As a musician or blogger, there should be an all-star game like in basketball. La creme de la creme battling for that precious trophy. Clapton, Sting and Kamen were … Continue reading How Sting And Eric Clapton Maybe Saved Humanity.
Lately I was a bit concerned because I don't have time to fully go through what I write. Writing 750 words almost daily is a difficult task: you have to have nice ideas, find the right songs, choose telling pictures for those who don't have time, make sure you are prepared if your blog becomes … Continue reading Should This Blog Need An Editor?
Today I want to talk about the laws of our universe. We've been here for 7 million years and we're still kind of stuck. Our scientists worked hard and there are some things interesting they found but today I want to be bold and I won't hedge: I think we are based on 2+2=5. Recently … Continue reading Why Are We Helpless In The Space Race?
The world's oldest motto. It sounds so bold that your ambition devours you and you end up with severe liver problems. Like most people in the Middle East. It seems that the return of the Christ was inevitable: with Israel not far away, prepare to do all the dirty work while they are reaping what … Continue reading Who Can Understand The World’s Oldest Motto?
This post was inspired by a song from Leonard Cohen called "Waiting for the Miracle". It seems someone finally got right the mystery of our universe: invaders. And now they are far away and decided to isolate and ruin humanity. I don't want to scare you with my trouble but there's something about blogging that … Continue reading Let’s Do Something Reasonable And Right.
Recently on my LinkedIn network, I noticed someone liking an article mentioning the famous accounting firm Ernst & Young will not consider success in school as a sign of success in life. I guess they must be right based on my experience: at the end of high school, I had my A-levels narrowly with an … Continue reading Why Don’t We Need Another Cheap Diploma?
Now's the time to talk about the numbers this blog has produced. They say life's a journey and not a destination. But I do think it's a journey and a destination. I must say I'm deeply concerned about the financial aspect of this blogging job. I spent 2000$ in advertising (all the other stuff I'm … Continue reading What Did This Blogging Journey Bring?
