Reacting is natural and its easy to press buttons and make people do things, Pavlov’s dogs showed us that.

Thinking on the other hand is a learned process and has always been a luxury. Until now. We are now many billions of people and we need to react quickly. The difference is today we need coordinated change and we need to think deeply about our next move.

Will we pull off the transition from reacting to thinking? That is the ten billion person question.

Thinking is a learned process, these articles are some of the things I have been thinking about.


Thinking leads to facts; a good place to start in terms of understanding how to look at the universe.


Exceptional failure; deals with the problem of trying to be nice and use nice words.

Is science a faith; answers the question of a sweet 8 year old girl.

The problem of mindfulness ; for my friends Rolf and Ted.

Thinking about eternity; a short excerpt by Gene Wolfe from a book I have not read.

None of us is as dumb as all of us; much of this is a rewrite of an Atlantic article with my own spin added. I should finish this one.

Thinkin about Lying; Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint. Attributed to Markus Herz

Thinking about the big questions; the key to happiness, its all right here.

Thinking about Gender Shit; Understanding the Gender confused, the She/He/IT or Shit in your life.

Phoenix and Sasha teach Gender appreciation at a Nudist Camp: The Trans Gender faith all made so much sense until they took off thier pants and shirts, “Don’t look down”

Thinking about identity: If its all about your identity your probably a petty narcissistic little fool, perhaps even a Shit.
