Negative scanner & old film rolls

I received a negative scanner recently as a present and dug into some film rolls, some old and some recent. It was the missing piece to continue working with film photography. I have analog cameras, and the film rolls are affordable priced, the development of film is affordable too. But photo development was the tricky bit and ...

On and Off of Consciousness?

Sunday, April 24, 2016 0 , Permalink

You can't have destiny sometimes and most of the time your "free will". The same way nothing conscious can come to existence from something without consciousness. What can ignite consciousness in billions of years of random movement to later form a conscious being? If there is something that ignited that "first consciousness" then that ignition ...

Oblivion – Sci-Fi Dystopia & Love Through Reincarnation

The film Oblivion by Joseph Kosinski had passed under my radar for the three years it’s been out. I finally saw it and really found it to be a relevant film, regarding artificial intelligence, use of drones, alien invasion, secret space programs and generally a well made post apocalyptic film. Also in the area of ...

Infancy of the AI robots vs humans war to come

The other day at my parents place I switches on ‘Robbie’, the robot vacuum cleaner. Florens is always curious about the robot, following it with her full attention. While initially somewhat afraid, she later does’t react if the robot drives into her. What I’m seeing here is two worlds in their infancy, one is my ...

We are unique

Ever since I was a child and watched space documentaries, somewhere someone always had to point out something along the line that “in the vast and endless space, we are just a fantastic coincidence and really insignificant”. Later I always heard this pop up in conversations here and there when someone would say “it doesn’t ...

God Wins (and you lose)

Here's a new track with an edited music video from the 1966 film Daisies by Věra Chytilová. I wrote the lyrics some years ago and finally finished a version of song with the twelve string guitar, shaker and some crunch to the mic for the vocals. Download it from my Bandcamp   https://youtu.be/KsEhWo5LQQ8   God wins and you lose, God ...

Immanuel Kant – Morallagen om böjelser och utilitarism

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 0 , Permalink

Vad är skillnaden mellan att motiveras av böjelse jämfört med en morallag, i detta fallet Kants morallag? Varför är det bättre att motiveras av det senare än det förra enligt Kant? Toppen på Kants moralpyramid utgörs av det kategoriska imperativet - det är den högsta viljans princip som bör styr viljan hos alla förnuftiga varelser. Samtidigt ...
