Thrust of argument: Don't just sit there watching the human race, yourself included, slide towards catastrophe.
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Start by reading the article in the references below.
Read about a low-risk "end of day" trading method designed for long and stable periods of economic activity.
Removal of resistance: Then apply some of what you gain from it - to your life.
Unification: Be scientific about it. Here, read some items about being scientific: How can you become more intelligent?
The key to science, according to Feynman.
Language, thought, communication.
Feynman, NASA, nukes, CBRN, GMOs, etc etc, exit pursued by climate change.
Are YOU unscientific? Are the papers and sites YOU read unscientific?
The Dumbing Down of Society.
Experiment is the sole judge of scientific 'truth.' (Feynman)
Pirsig said "We take a handful of sand from the endless landscape of awareness around us and call that handful of sand the world".
Pirsig on Jesus and Moses.
Pirsig on quality and art.
The Quality he was teaching was not just a part of reality, it was the whole thing.
"Contrary to the claims of biotech advocates, humans have indeed been harmed by consuming the output of genetic engineering. In fact, the technology's first ingestible product (a food supplement of the essential amino acid, L-tryptophan) caused dozens of deaths and seriously sickened thousands of people (permanently disabling many of them). Moreover, the evidence points to the genetic alteration as the most likely cause of the unusual contamination that rendered the supplement toxic."
Eating meat is more dangerous than you imagine.
Reality is not sharp around the edges. Reality is not certain.
Notes on 'The character of physical law, 1, the law of gravitation', a lecture by Richard Feynman, part of a series.
Sometimes the snow comes down in June, sometimes the sun goes round the moon, I see the passion in your eyes, sometimes it's all a big surprise. (Vanessa Williams)
Science is evidence based, business is profit based, the NHS is being fought over
Science wants to protect it, Business wants to own it and profit from it.
The belief in the existence of "race" is incredibly laughable and shallow.
Feynman, the empirical anarchist.
Elitism is not scientific and science is not elitist.
'.. Atoms - little particles that move around in perpetual motion, attracting each other when they are a little distance apart, but repelling upon being squeezed into one another.' (Feynman)
I wanna be with you when tomorrow comes (Eurythmics).
Therefore, things must be learned only to be unlearned again or, more likely, to be corrected. (Feynman)
Scientific method vs Business and Marketing.
Genocide of our food chain.
Feynman, item 1, about light, corpuscles, particles.
'All things are made of atoms.' (Feynman)
The universe is probabilistic.
'We are free to choose between the pro-big business party on the right and the pro-big business party on the right at the ballot box. We have all the freedom we could ask for. Stop whining, you dirty, ungrateful communist. We are free. Keep repeating: we are free.'
'This is not the intensity of a wave [..] but it is instead the chance that a particle comes as being counted by a photo-multiplier.' (Richard Feynman)
If it disagrees with experiment, it's wrong - says science, says Feynman.
