John Stuart Mill vs. John Rawls on Freedom

Here's my comparison on the principle of freedom by John Stuart Mill vs. John Rawls. Both are peaceful theories that seek to ensure liberty and justice. But I'll argue that Mill's view is longer lasting (universal) compared to that one of Rawls, which I find to be more narrow and specific for a certain time. John ...

Göteborg to Berlin, from the morning to the balcony

We're back in Berlin and this will be the last trip for the two of us alone and sort of first family trip. There's so many things we want to go back to from the last time and get deeper in, plus all the new places and things to see. Almost exactly to date, one ...

Dhammapada (full text + PDF + audiobook)

These texts are essentially inspiring and their wisdom is an endless gift. It consents of the things Buddha had said in response to some situations, throughout his life. Now I don't know if he kept a notebook by his side but we can be glad we have this piece of work. For all you who ...

Wealthy in true love from now on

Wealthy I am, because they will both run to me with open arms until the day I die. So I got reminded about the first times I heard Enjoy the Silence as a very young boy and wondered what it could be that I'll ever want in my arms. I feel it now when they are in ...

Our first family photo session

This was an amazing emotional, beautiful, visual and sonic experience of seeing our little baby in there. As it turns out we were two weeks early to the ultrasound scan. Meaning that we'll get to be there again in two weeks! That's great as we really enjoyed seeing our little baby in there. The baby ...

Ex Machina and the threat of artificial intelligence

We've had some films about artificial intelligence and singularity from the past years like Automata, Transcendence, Her and so on - Ex Machina continues along that track. All these movies have the same undertones of a biological human being falling in love, in some sense, with an AI. For good or worse I won't be discussing ...

Natural preparation of becoming a father and family man

It's still five months left until my love gives birth. Still I find the detoxifying experience very interesting within me, and her of course, us as a family. For each period of my life there was a shift and rearranging within priorities, focus and purification. When I was single there was a certain world view ...

Turning 30 and life unfolds

Recently I had a conversation about things of the past in ones life and how we feel about them today. We both agreed that acknowledging and going beyond everything that has happened is the only way to do it. Something that sort of makes every episode a curio. I find it a tumbling worm hole ...

Moralisk motivation

By Saturday, January 10, 2015 0 , Permalink 1

Beroende på vilken moral det gäller för en person är så behöver den inte tygla emotioner. Om en människa är förenad med sin moral och förenad helt i en viss princip så är det inte längre bojor. Det är då ett införlivande av ens ideal. Det är då som en moralisk eller principiell förändring hos ...

Ovo (drone rock)

Ovo (meaning 'this' in Bosnian) is a drone rock composition that I recorded in late 2009. The instruments used are a bas played with a bow, doubled binaural guitars, 12 string acoustic guitar as the rhythm, electric solo guitar and some echo effects. The video is collaged from public domain NASA clips. It's a mix of ...

Maggie McOmie in the sci-fi film THX 1138

Recently I watched the sci-fi film THX 1138 from 1971 by George Lucas and produced by Francis Ford Coppola. It's a dystopia in the Orwellian sense and has the typical 'one person breaks out' scenario going on. Very much ahead of its time and certainly not a blockbuster. But watching it in this day and ...

‘Speed of Delight’ live in Gävle

I’ve always wanted to play some kosmische dark ambient soundscapes in a church. So finally in Gävle through an event by IDKA and Lamour I did it. It’s a former Catholic church that was sold out. Apparently it’s been for sale for many years and is the oldest kept Catholic church in Sweden. I wonder ...

This is one of many interesting and documented mass UFO observations (12 at one point in the recording). A very valuable source declassified even though ...

Apollo 11 transcript – UFO incident about S-IVB

The Apollo 11 incident and the conversation about the S-IVB (Saturns third stage rocket) is now very known. When the astronauts asked for the position of the S-IVB to check if the UFO they were seeing outside could have been it - even though it was "left behind" two days prior to their request. I was reading ...
