The Theory of Everything

What happened when the Big Bang occurred? Time and space started. What was there before the Big Bang? There must have been something that was not time and space bound because both started with the Big Bang. What is it? It cannot be nothing. Nothing cannot create everything. I think it was energy because energy is neither bounded by time nor by space.Energy can be destructive or constructive.

On Consciousness

The universe is one gigantic web of subsystems , which are interrelated. They're integrated in multiple ways and each is a subsystem of something bigger than itself. For instance, a human being is composed of the blood subsystem, the nervous subsystem, the muscle subsystem, etcetera. At the same time a human being is a subsystem of a family, which is a subsystem of community, and the community a subsystem of a nation. A nation is a subsystem of humanity, which is a subsystem of the planet , sharing it with other subsystems, the flora, fauna and the air and water subsystems.

Live as if Already Dead

I heard an expression: "Live as if you're already dead." It intrigued me. What does it mean to "live as if you're already dead"?What happens when you're dead? Nothing matters anymore. Nothing perturbs you. When you are dead, you're in eternity and there is no way to come back and fix the problems that you created when you were alive.

How to Fail - A Prescription

I have discovered how to accomplish failure... in marriage, in business, in our personal life... in practically anything we do. Just take things for granted.Take your spouse for granted. Take your children for granted. Take your work, your success, your health, your love, anything, take it all for granted. Then wait. Failure will follow.

These are people that, because of their intelligence level, are considered to be geniuses. He also ran the same PAEI testing with another group whose intelligence was known to be below genius level, and compared the results.

When to Stop Parenting 

Today, it's a different world. The children become "adults” early. They know the computer technology better than us. I could not operate the latest TV screens without them. I am constantly asking for help with the latest changes to my computer applications. I am the ignorant student. They are the knowledgeable teacher now. They're influenced by TV, by the social media, by external factors, school, their friends, the impact of the family and its control over their behavior is diminished significantly. Thus, they rebel earlier.

What is success?

My son was visiting me. Sitting next to the pool on my ranch, surrounded by the beautiful valley and the high mountains beyond, said: "Daddy, you made it." I've been thinking about what he said.

The Road to Hell

When we were in the garden of Eden we were not conscious. We were not even conscious that we were nude. We were ignorants in the garden of Eden. There is a benefit to being ignorant. One does not know enough to be worried about anything, so one is happy. Happily ignorant.
