On Fairytales, Romantic Fantasy and the Bourgeois

When in my twenties I belatedly came into real contact with the Punk movement and related underground anti bourgeois drug-taking communities and thought worlds, I immediately knew I wanted very little to do with this possible way of being, this psychic underbelly as I saw it… I aspired to the upper realms, in philosophy a …

The Hedonomatrix

Who said the road to hell, or at least dehumanisation, wasn’t fun? Late last night it coalesced in my mind as a coherent pattern, a syndrome. I christened it the Hedonomatrix. There may be other, better, names – I haven’t checked. By any name, it is now (to my mind) officially a Thing, as the …

Can we love excrement?

Oh dear!   Started the year with a well-intentioned little ebook close to my heart called ‘How to Love everyone and Everything – starting with a stone’,  (uploaded here as a free ebook: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/604151 ) and the first Facebook comment I got was, ‘It looks like a turd…’ Back to earth with a thud! But the friend …

Why do Christmas?

Ask this boy! 🙂     Grandson Bruno (here wearing my sparkly hat and glasses) is waiting patiently for his third Christmas  and the pine smell of the tree is already bringing magic into his house.  This is a year I decided to once again try hard to DO Christmas. Why? Because for once I …

Announcing 4phase – a new blog long overdue!

Yes, sorry a new blog has manifested itself – http://www.4phase.org Read the (short) story of its genesis there. Suffice to say I’m quietly excited. Finally a focus for ‘coming out’ to teach some of the wisdom I have gathered over the years on process and how things evolve, and how using that knowledge we can …

Homemaking, the Last Homely House, and the meaning of Life

Raewyn had a home day yesterday – we both had colds. It was sunny so we went outside and pruned the big appletree. It was good… Raewyn looked so nice up in the appletree I wanted to share this photo… I have been thinking about modern art, the agreement (seemingly) reflected in it that beauty …

Artistic nihilism: The Matrix, a miasma in the air, or addicts and drug pushers?

I am keen to begin this new phase, here at Studio 14 in the Quarry, where I will do art instead of multiple crafts and services. In spite of money worries, which most of the crafts have not helped anyway. In between petty concerns (such as attending to three boomerang pets) I’m having all sorts …

What is Art and why do it?

For about fifty years I’ve asked this question, off and on. Maybe I’d have done better off just to DO it, but… ‘the philosopher is strong in this one’. So, ‘Art’ was one thing I found very slippery to define, so I kept worrying away at it, even while I avoided doing it. (Acknowledgements required: When …

A new religion? declared at LoveQor

Thank you for following this blog, and bear with me: I’ve gone and refocused over at loveqor.com, where I’m imagining and hopefully pioneering, a new way of understanding the Logic of Love and its application to solve, well, all the main problems of the human world.  So, my latest vision and focus is now www.loveqor.com   This …

My Qor Philosophy

Well, the big stuff always goes to the background like mountains. We need to climb the darned things or at least one of them,  if we are ever to reach our peak… So, I was sick yesterday and as often happens to me, I started philosophising with unusual candour. I.e., reckless abandon and self-honesty. At …
