  • Dementia and changes. June 13, 2019
    I conclude, by means of interacting with pilgrims here, in Santiago de Compostela, that all guys between sixty and eighty five are seriously scared about dementia. They were all born between 1958 and 1933. As a matter of fact, I’ve been recently thinking they could constitute some kind of “demented” movement, or “demented army”: Dementia […]

  • Barricades June 5, 2019
    I think it’s isn’t a time for reading or writing. I think it’s a time for barricades. Real fire, real struggle. I’m, personally, tired and  don’t trust any more on words.

  • Nanoparticle Additives in Your Food
    Processed food is the antithesis of a healthy diet for a number of different reasons, the addition of unregulated and often undisclosed chemicals being a significant one. Besides preservatives, emulsifiers, colors and flavors, which are generally listed, there are any number of others that do not have to be disclosed, as they’re considered “processing aids.”

  • A Cop, a Dog, and a Computer Walk into a Bar: Personhood & Moral Subjectivity June 19, 2019
    I’m mostly writing about morality because I would very much like to stop writing about morality. I say this because morality is, ultimately, a social construct — which isn’t to say that it’s nothing, but is to say that it’s malleable. It’s a feeling. You can’t whip out a morality-o-meter and measure morality. Even further,...
