I’ve been chaotic my whole life, everything I’ve done wrong was trying to put some order in it.
Until I got an epiphany: I am the chaos, ’cause the universe is chaos.
People are afraid of the the chaos ’cause they are evil, thereat they need rules (order) to keep’em in line. What they don’t known (or pretend not to know) is that the order is just an excuse for them to be evil.
— Not my fault, only following orders.
That sentence enables bad people to do bad things. But that’s okay! Everything is gonna be alright as long as we follow the rules — or maybe not. …

One can pass through life unaware of the evil, but not untouched by it.
Evil is what happens when the shadow, choked by the superego’s tyranny, finds a way out to be.
Why is evil so bound to religion and morality? ’Cause it’s their side effect.
The religion and morality are the remaining of the society proto-norms, born from the prestige bias in many ways. So the evil is.
The prestige bias creates a distorted right-vs-wrong principle, nondetachably bound to the first impressions (principia). …

There’s a name in my ID, but that means nothing. Never did. I had two names when I was born: the first was Rogrigo.
Until I was 3, I simply couldn’t understand why there was a “D” in my written name. Someday my mother told me that my name wasn’t Rogrigo, but Rodrigo – that was the time when I broke up with that name for good.
My grandma used to call me Boddhi, that was my second name. She used to call my brother Boddhinho (Portuguese for Little Boddhi). …
I’ve read conflicting news about Covid-19 protocols, mostly contradicting WHO’s official reports. I decided to collect and share some data.
Why may you pay a hundred (or hundreds of) dollars for a famous band’s show, but only some quarters for a local band’s?
The answer lies on a kinda addiction, a psychopathology indeed: people can’t decide for themselves, they need someone to tell ’em which’s right and which’s wrong.
Without an authority telling what they must like, people get confused and lost.
So, back in 50’s, the Rock’n’Roll got exposed to the mainstream media, starting the first Rock’s boom, that lasted until the end of the 70’s.
That gave a lesson to the music industry: they needed to classify, label, and fit into a box every future musical expression, in order to control it. …
The worth concept is very subjective and private. Everyone has its own, and it diverges one from another.
Once I worked with a Linux kernel committer. The guy was a genius in several different ways. But he had a weakness: he failed under pressure.
He needed a stable and quiet environment to perform.
But in that time, another developer had reached an influence position in the company. That other guy’s qualities was light-years behind the first one’s, both in knowledge and in practice.
The “influencer”, besides his influence position, had another advantage: pressure wasn’t a problem for him. So he used his influence to convince the company’s board that cold blood under pressure was an employee’s required ability. …
In 2012 my first wife was dying of cancer, and I tried every treatment I could find. So I was looking for doctors and alternative healers.
When I told an oncologist about my desperate approach, he told me that every attempt on saving a life is valid.
I once went for a thoroughly recommended healing nun, using natural herbal medicines to treat and cure cancer.
She prescribed an iron and fiber rich vegetable-based juice, but under one condition: my wife should abandon all traditional treatments. The nun said she didn’t want her treatment results attributed to doctors’ medicines.
Thence I had no doubt: I stuck to the traditional doctors and left her behind. …
I’ve just seen a TV show named “Magic Number.” In the first episode, it tries to prove the Mathematics doesn’t exist itself, instead, it’s just a human mind’s creation.
The TV show presents as defence the complex numbers: the i (i² = -1, sometimes j) doesn’t exist in nature, so it just could be a human’s creation.
Now I’m showing my plea why Mathematics really exists, and at end I’m gonna argue against the complex numbers argument.
Let’s consider this: we got a rock – just a rock. Now we got another rock. How many rocks is there?
No way there’s other than two rocks. Well… you could break a rock…
All electrons in Universe are identical, it’s absolutely impossible to discern two electrons one from another. It’s called the Indistinguishability Problem.
Other particles, like protons, neutrinos and positrons show the same peculiarity.
That leaded John Archibald Wheeler to a crazy idea: what if every electron was all the same one? The “one electron” must exist through all the existence and back again, over and over. Maybe taking the long way home as positon, maybe sometimes through a shortcut in a dead dimension we barely understand.
That hypothesis possibly solves a lot of Quantum Physics questions – if not all of them, including the huge amounts of matter and antimatter during the first ages. …
If you say:
Why are conspiracy theories so attractive? Flat Earth, anti-vaccine, historical and science denialism…
All those conspiracy theories share a common aspect: they (awarely intend to) make you feel cleverer and special.
Everyone wanna find oneself special. Thinking that you know something that nobody else knows makes you feel special – or pretending that you know.
The hard truth is nobody’s special, there’s no concealed sooth or hidden great treat indeed.
Thereat every information that makes you feel special or cleverer tends to be false. On the other hand, that information that makes you say “That’s so simple! How could I’ve been so stupid?” …
