Resistance to Truth

Do we see what we feel or do we feel what we see?

is almost always because of threat. Real or imagined to one’s well-being. Naturally.

Well-being being with regard to ones’s health. Meaning ones’s state of: 1) physical; 2) mental; 3) psychological; 4) emotional; 5) social; 6) economic. Anyone or all.


the truth varies. There is short-term truth and long-term truth.

In the short-term truth often has a positive effect. Contrary to its long-term effect. In other words there is conflict between how one perceives Truth. Short or long term?


of one’s health and well-being depends upon (often) on desire. Said another way: Altering one’s state of mind (by any means) can make one feel good in the here-and-now. But, further on down the road lead to unhappiness. In many cases pain and sometimes death.


to truth is often the response. In other words “I see only what I want to see.”

Cognitive Bias

is what Psychologists call this tendency. This is in essence Evolutionary Psychology. Those mind/thinking prejudices that were life-saving in the short-term. Those proclivities that engendered our survival in an hostile and chaotic world. That world has changed. Thanks to us.

Killing from a distance

is the essential ability that fostered human domination of planet earth. [Sorry, laundry interruption.]

Killing from a distance is an evolved mechanism that required the brain to calculate time, distance, motion, and gravity instantly. I call it, “The Brady Effect”. [In reference to Tom Brady, the 44 year-old quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Who is the master of that – the integration of time, distance, motion, & gravity. (And maybe happiness?)]

That freak mutation of one strange, novel primate led to this:

A Planet,

world, and all its inhabitants being in grave danger (Climate change. Nuclear war. Artificial intelligence, etc.. ) Some say.

Where, What , When, Who, Why?

is the story.

And then along comes a virus. A virus just doing what all creatures do – trying to replicate itself. To survive. There is struggle and suffering. But and also a struggle for power and control. Was Nietzsche right? Or is Wright?

Who decides?

Who wins? And, why does it matter?
