One of the amazing things about writing a blog is the connections it makes

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a class from Upstate NY. They had been discussing nature activities that kids and adults can enjoy and had come across my blog. One of the children sent me a link to a website that he thought I might be interested so I’m going to share it with you.

Herding Millennials — a new agenda for tech?

Another little “deviation from the normal” post.

Starring yet again Caralyn (thanks for the tip), with hat tips to Velda & Josepha. This is a particular threesome of intelligent thinkers (see the linked-to posts for more about some of their intelligent thoughts) I totally hope they will collaborate and exchange ideas — not only with each other, but also with all of us… the global commmunity… of things, or beings, or whatever (haha, well just don’t “nevermind” 😉 ).

Caralyn’s post addresses a new REALLY BIG SHOW on Netflix (actually more than one, but do go ahead and read all about it on her post) … called “The Social Dilemma”. I haven’t watched it — I’m not that kind of consumer… I will listen to you, but if you start treating me like your slave, well then I don’t care about what you think you have that’s worthy of me paying attention to (because in my humble opinion it simply isn’t … at least not in that case). Whatever (yes, do nevermind 😉 ).

Well, so the question this persuasion geek is pushing (see Tristan Harris’ website for more details) is: Should we trust these algorithm-gurus who have been fucking up so royally for decades … should they now be trusted to program algorithms, computer programs, silicon chips — whatever — for the “guidance” of our kids? Um, some of you might remember this (be sure to click the “watch” link if you don’t 😉 ). In other words: HELL, NO!!

What we need is HUMAN INTELLIGENCE, nature, natural processes, evolution, whatever — NOT “Humane AI”. Just say no to having some 1000 elite narcissists programming what you are thinking, doing, whatever!

Um, with that, back to our… regularly… scheduled… whatever (nevermind).

What is happening to the human race when hugs and handshakes are frowned upon or a threat of being arrested is hanging over our heads?

Recently a commenter stated how badly she missed hugs. My response? I’ve not stopped hugging those I love so why have you? I am not afraid to touch other people. I am love not fear. As long as I live upon this earth I will live from a state of love, not fear.

I would love to meet other people who feel a connection with Spirituality, Nature and Creativity

Keywords: acceptance, anti violence, blog introduction, hate free, spiritual blog, spiritual friends, spirituality

My motivation for starting a Spiritual blog is partly to share with others but mainly to try and connect with like minded people actually. I have always considered myself a very spiritual person and it is weird keeping that out of my creative blog. However I know that some people are very put off by other’s sharing their spiritual experiences and therefore I wanted to keep it seperate so as to not offend anyone.
