Talking about BBC – Today Programme. And, ‘The Dustbin Stasi’.

A book detailing replies to the key questions in science and religion is due to be launched at The Royal Society. Reverend Dr John Polkinghorne, a former professor of physics at Cambridge University and fellow of the Royal Society, is publishing the top 51 responses which appear on his theological website. He discusses how religion can enter into a dialogue with science. Ref, The Citadel Of Self – The Nuclear Self. And, “Why is thought, being a secretion in the brain, more wonderful than gravity and the property of matter? It is our arrogance…our admiration of ourselves”. Charles Darwin (1809-1882) See, ‘Admiration’ in photos!

The Dustbin Stasi.
Civil Liberties in the Recession/Depression – our money (lost lots of our money in the Banking Crisis, and much more to go) and Council employees time will not be spent on this sort of nasty and creepingly pervasive nonsense. Regulation Investigatory Powers Act (RIP).  Ref, Stanley Milgram “Upping the Anti” or “You – too, can up the anti!”

What is wrong with nudity? Why are people embarrassed about their bodies? How and why did they get the way they are?

Horizon takes a group of volunteers and subjects them to a series of psychological and physical tests to challenge attitudes to the naked human form. The questions raised strike at the heart of human physical and social evolution.

Human beings are the only creatures that can be ‘naked’ – but why, how and when did people lose their fur? That question takes Horizon around the world to meet scientists from Africa to Florida, and they are finding answers in unexpected places: the chest hair of Finnish students, the genetic history of lice, and the sweat of an unusual monkey.

It turns out that something everyone takes for granted may hold the key to the success of the entire human species.

1. Intimacy
2. Subtleties of relationships
3. Meaning for others
4. Allowing a person discretion to explore inner feelings
5. Certain kinds of affronts (Compulsory Worship Law – Schools. Religion in Schools UK. ref, vulnerable/children, indoctrination – self-harming. Ideological indoctrination in schools, so on…)
“All five aspects of privacy singled out by Schoeman are in fact functional and contingent and certainly not necessary to all human beings at all times”. ‘The Domestic Influence’. Peter J Wilson ‘The Domestication Of The Human Species’. “Privacy is inextricably bound with giving and receiving attention”. ‘The Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew and the 5 sequential stages of human development, “a very persuasive one”. The first three stages are ‘unilineal’ (where the idea of memes or memetics of Dawkins is found to be a bit loose in its terminology) as in the evolution to Homo sapiens from Homo erectus. Based on ‘Origins of the Modern Mind’ Merlin Donald 1991 and refined by Colin Renfrew and later accepted by Donald.
1) Episodic Stage – Primate cognition 2) Mimetic Stage – 4 million to 400,000years (peaking with Homo erectus) 3) Mythic Stage – first use of complex language – 500,000 years to the present (peaking with Homo sapiens) 4) Material Symbolic Stage. Leslie White recognised this as defining the ‘importance in human culture’ (icons of religious faith, amongst the many other symbols) 5) Theoretic Stage. Donald calls this ‘institutionalised paradigmatic thought’ (writing – ‘massive external memory storage’). A better and more detailed explanation can be found in Colin Renfrew’s  fascinating book ‘Prehistory’. Writing this to try and clarify it in my own mind, as it must be (and in my great ignorance), the ground breaking formation of a basis (and) origin for all leaning! – stunning!
Equality Legislation could be invoked for superstition or the FSM – possibly (beyond that of our everyday and normal human reasoning).
Who knows ‘what’ in America – “not a lot of people” – amazing and so very embarrasing!
 Such amazing fun, satire, to be had in the UK – Everyone in the EU & the (sad) whole rest of the World, should move in to watch the most spectacular of “total bollocks”, first hand that has now so welcomely returned, being in a complete absence from our Little Bitty Islands for more than just a few hundred years. It’s May in Florence (Magic Roundabout), Alice (Wonderland) May of Brexit
Unfortunately, we have been preoccupied with lots of much more serious and such very boring stuff; like in the building of an Empire and then giving it all away! And, so very busy listening, very intently to the topical songs of the day – like this one

Of course, you trusted them, but, “Beware The Total Bollocks” – your mother & father, brothers & sisters, teachers & peers, so on… 1960’s – “Those Born Of The Vicious Lot” – ‘Mother’s little helper’ returns as drug-takers use more Valium as cheap alternative to heroin (+ Alcohol) “Desperate For Cash” / Did “They” Try It Out On You? – Sibling Sympathy / Family Plot” – “The Screw-Balls” & “The Moronic Plot” & “The Gov Plot” – “Is Global Warming Real”? Not if your classed as a “Moron” & are “stupid enough” to believe in the “Experts” Helping with the ‘Learning Disabled’, give them a “Test” – an “IQ Test” will do (for anyone in fact, even those with a UNI Degree. i.e., Post Grads in the USA)! Tell them that their score was really low (“moronic”, even) & that they will “never come to much”. Then tell other’s (Mother’s/Fathers/Relations), they, the ones tested given purposely (maliciously, so on…) “low results”, tried and did commit suicide (problems for the rest of their lives – “self-esteem”). Has it been done to you – a “duff-test” – or only in the 1950’s for gain. Those tests seem very popular now & coming out of the “Psycho Babble Culture” in the USA – MAKING LOTS OF MONEY! Has anything like this been tried out on you, or your family – is “Profiling” nearly the same & is it susceptible to many “easy menaces”? They know who they are; Educationalists (poss, extra money, so on…); Employers (poss, – “who don’t want you”; Family (poss, – money to screw out of a third party, so on…); Experts (poss, the Psycho Programme sales, so on…); Government (poss, to Dumb-you-down about “something”, so on…).

Hooked on – What is reality? “Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away” Philip K Dick (Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?). The wonderful book “iGEN”, it’s where we are going! Can’t stop emails with Celia Gollin, we have chatted together almost once a week for a year, so very interesting! Can’t stop emails with Celia, we have chatted together almost once a week for a year, so interesting!, (she taught music for many after Millfield, including your famous friend – a real rebel, over 70 now, Lizzy doesn’t mind!

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
