Example of Theological Scientism

You know those "if it was safe and could make this better... we must do it" arguments regarding GMO for better crops, or geoengineering for better climate and permanent changes in our bodies through bio-tech? It seems every day and age has some of that attitude, where science (or further back in history: religion) is ...

The Successor – A Weapon Engineer’s Parabola in Bosnian Minefields

Another film in the Italian focus at the Göteborg Film Festival is The Successor by Mattia Epifani. It's about reinvention of ones life, as seen from opposite perspectives relating to land mines. The main perspective is that of the weapons engineer, Alfieri Fontana, who inherited the company Tecnovar that made famous (infamous) mines. The documentary ...

Securing your children’s online footprints and integrity

Thursday, January 21, 2016 0 , , Permalink

Today children grow up with all the accessibility online possible. In my observations, more than most (if one can say so) adults really don't know or care about their online footprints and integrity when they use everything from desktop to mobile devices. These people do basic browsing and access social media, connecting and hooking up ...

Snowfall photography

Today I went out with my sister and her man to take some loving pregnant portraits. As it turned out, overnight lots of snow had fallen and the snowfall continues. I like how my sister has the clock hanging on her neck resting on the pregnant stomach. The baby is due to come any day ...

‘The Empyrean’ by John Frusciante still holds up with magic

In 2010 a drunken zen teacher told me about John Frusciante's album The Empyrean and how it was so powerful and subtle, hot John makes great guitar work that suits the music never blowing it over. He said he'd already listened through it many times discovering new sound aspects to it and he recommended me ...

Anatoly Fomenko (1945) is a mathematician and professor at the University of Moscow. But he is most famous for his controversial and revisionist work on history, called New Chronology. Here are some of his artwork that I really like, they sort of resonate with the sci-fi feeling of dystopia. Like the soundscape of Klaus Schulze's ...

Kytice – en drömsk mytologiskt vågad absurd värld

Kytice från 2000 är en tjeckisk film som är uppdelad i några klassiska tjeckiska berättelser skrivna av Karel Jaromír Erben. Det som på pappret skulle te sig som enkelspåriga berättelser i stil med arketypiska folkmyter, rycks i filmens elaborativa och vackra scener, samt tongången som är rätt nådlös, till en komplett och attraktiv visuell värld. ...

2016 Begins…

This year is going to be packed with events and adventures to look forward to. But it all lives of what happened in the past. Like a momentum that depends on taking every day to the fullest, burn it and let the ashes and manure from past mistakes nourish the future to come. Last year ...
