I had a terrible weekend group course put on by a practice where a successful "natural" counsellor was trying to turn over the business to her assistant, who was just trying to do what had worked for what looked most similar to her, but she had no clue. My best counsellor is also a "n...

^ Dude..."Billy the Kid" was a dude! You must have him confused with Calamity Jane, or with Annie Oakley. What is the confusion? Men went for improved weapons, while women trusted their wiles. Annie Oakley did exhibitions, not executions. You were talking about relative amounts of brute f...

No, the women were far from powerless. Ma nature is not that mean. The biggest difference in power was that the women could not brag about what they did, because it was either of only local concern, or involved deception rather than force. In the US, women got the vote because public prosecutors wa...

Deep in our pre-verbal, hard-wired brains, we have two separate and distinct moral codes that can make us "feel right" when applied, whatever the evidence says. One code is for use within the home, which is a sheltered facility for raising children, who start off almost helpless, and a da...

I have come to the conclusion that I should avoid all remotely controversial topics in future and dumb myself down, perhaps just talk about celebrities, shopping etc. I just had a bait and switch happen to me in the last hour. A friend was messaging about how she wanted to euthanise herself because...

There seems to be more "with us or against us" going around. I can't be neutral about one group while supporting another that is underprivileged in different ways. I was considered extremely progressive most of my life, but now, I get several kinds of prejudice applied to me without an eye...

I was recently reflecting that I never used to see progressive bigots, but they are common now. I think that ever since dogma took over the social sciences people have been trying to project and defend ever less grounded self-images and social theories. The acceleration of intolerance over the last...

I have safely assumed that everyone has at least one crazy idea. One astronomer of quite shattering eminence thought that our nostrils pointed down to save us from inhaling space dust, as if he had never seen dust floating in a beam of sunlight, or other noses, mouth-breathing, sleeping, or wind. I ...

I have often had my ideas stolen e.g. at work meetings when I quietly state a solution to a problem, then someone (usually a man I'd sad to say) overhears my idea and loudly presents the idea as their own. Then he is celebrated and cheered for 'having such a brilliant idea.' When it was mine all al...

Perception can also be tricky - we see what we expect to see more than we look afresh. However, there is also a problem with just what we are willing to see. I think that for a frightening number of people, the highest truth is not the one that can be proven in a lab, but the story that brings the m...
