When I was writing about charlatans two weeks ago I completely neglected the fact that I did not even define that term. I just took it for granted while in fact it is really somewhat elusive, at least on the first sight. But once you cut through the fog, it becomes clear. It helps to … Continue reading How To Identify a Charlatan
There are a lot of movements and trends right now towards saving the planet, reducing energy consumption, reducing waste and all of that. A lot of it has to do with some 'higher' ethical values and it is all fine with me. There is some serious progress being done! But one has to remain realistic … Continue reading Why Being (Self)sustainable Is Impossible
When I began thinking about this subject I based my model on astrology and similar fields of prediction. But later on I realised that in most cases even seemingly serious fields like economics, politics or social sciences share the same flaw, only that they manage to mask it with superficial language and complex terminology. But … Continue reading Astrologists, Politicians and Other Charlatans
This is a subject that has fascinated me for a long long time and it is becoming even more interesting lately. After pondering this topic from the neurological and even technological point of view (as much as I can grasp any of those) my take on it is somewhat shifting into other directions and today … Continue reading On Artificial Intelligence

Firstly it was shotokan karate, then basketball, along with that mountain biking, then came running, later mountain biking again, now running again, this time long distance. So obviously I do read some books on the subjects, and quite recently … Continue reading A Short Note on Life

At that time I was still using Canon EOS 5D mk II as my primary camera and desperately waiting for Canon to release something new, something better than … Continue reading The Future is Mirrorless
Over the past years I've spent way too much time thinking about food, nutrition and everything that goes along with it. In that time I've adopted a whole-foods-pland-based lifestyle of mostly raw fruits and vegetables, which come from my own garden, at least when in season. I've experimented with different types of fasts, including prolonged … Continue reading But What Will I Eat Then?
This year I decided to spend my spring break in Morocco. It is a country that many of my friends have already visited so I kinda had to go there myself. And Infocona was kind enough to let me use their Fujifilm X-T2 camera with 18-55 2.8-4 lens in exchange for an honest review. Since … Continue reading A Week in Morocco with Fujifilm X-T2
This is my take on the famous Fermi paradox. For those who are not familiar with it, it goes like this: Our galaxy alone has billions of stars. We know that many (if not most) of them have planets orbiting around them. The number is so vast that even if only the tinies fraction developed … Continue reading But Where Are They?
During the last few years I had quite many encounters with classical and alternative medicine. Some for my own health, much more for the wellbeing of my loved ones. One thing I can say is that without taking responsibility for my health into my own hands, real health would not (and is not) possible. No … Continue reading On Medical Service
