Are we alone in this universe?

A lost world somewhere in space…

UFO stories are selling a lot. Many people claim that they have witnessed aliens somewhere. The most extreme of these stories are talking about abductions of people from alien spacecrafts, when they were hiking in a forest. The internet is crawling with these stories and they all include flying saucers, green people and other crazy stuff. You can find thousands of videos on YouTube that have all sorts of oddities in them. Well, they are probably fake, but they are still fun to watch. This is something that I’ve always wondered as an adult. Are we alone in this universe? Is there alien life somewhere in this vast cosmos? Let’s delve a little deeper into this.

The Witcher tale: A must read

Geralt of Rivia

“Two things only the greatest fools do: throw stones at hornets nests… and threaten a witcher”

Geralt of Rivia

These days, I’ve been reading the Witcher novels, which take place in a fictional world. I am so amazed by the story and the complexity of the characters, that I can’t stop reading about them. The world of the Witcher hosts mythical beasts such as Griffins, ghouls, dragons etc. Also, magic exists in this universe and there are sorcerers and witchers that can use their own spells and techniques against others. The central characters of the books are Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri. Geralt is a witcher that kills monsters for a living.

Insomnia: the modern curse

“Insomnia is a glamorous term for thoughts you forgot to have in the day”

Alain de Botton

Hello, today I’m gonna talk about an issue that concerns many many people, since insomnia messes up the lives of many adults. Our stressful lives contribute to this greatly, and it can be such a drag. Again, I have to state that I’m not a expert on the matter, but I do know a few things about it, since I had thousands of sleepless nights in my life. I could actually write a thesis on insomnia. What I’m about to tell you, are advice that I got from doctors and some stuff that I picked up along the way. As I told you previously, I used to be clinically depressed. People with this condition, often have sleeping issues. That was the case for me too.

A message to all depressed people

“life is too important to be taken seriously”

Oscar Wilde

Hello, I’ve been meaning to talk about this subject for a very long time. I finally got the chance to do it. At first, I was thinking of uploading a YouTube video about this, but I decided to write it down instead. This post is about all the tortured souls of this world (including the ones that suffer from clinical depression).

We live in hard times. We have lots of burdens on our backs and we are struggling with everyday’s problems. There are several things that contribute to this. The economic crisis, the decadence of our society, the lack of education etc. Whenever we have financial issues, things take the down turn. Whenever money is absent, lots of problems arise.

Is this world good or evil?

Weve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on…that’s who we really are

Sirius Black

Times have changed. The only permanent thing is change as Heraclitus had once said. Things have taken a down turn and we live in difficult times. If you talk with other people , you understand that they have lots of crap to deal with. There is a general dissatisfaction in the world and it is actually rare, to find someone that is happy in this whole mess. Since people aren’t fond of this situation, they complain a lot about this world. There are some cliches that they keep on saying. The most common ones are “this world is evil”, “humans are the worst creatures on the planet” etc. Some are even claiming that this world should be destroyed, in order to be “cleansed”. These opinions are not original at all, I’ve heard them many times myself. Is there any truth to these claims? Are these people right or they need to chill a little? Let’s delve a little deeper into this.

Good vs evil

The eternal battle

Morality Concerns Humanity, Not Gods .

— Albert Einstein

As this is the first time I’m posting something, I thought that it would be appropriate to talk a bit about morality. We will talk about ethical issues in many occasions, but in this post, we will define what is “good” and “evil”. The picture I have above, is a representation of the Yin and Yang, the famous Chinese symbol. I find this image very beautiful and chaotic, which is why I used it as the opening picture of this post. However, this is not the actual Yin and yang. The original symbol is this:

Yin and yang
