Illusion of Chance

January 9th, 2016 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #
There is no such thing as luck, no such thing as chance.  Someone always made it happen, whether intentionally or by accident.  If not yourself, then you are letting someone else control your fate.

Terrorists Among Syrian Refugees

November 15th, 2015 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #
Looks like the ISIS Trojan Horse scenario I mentioned in September is playing out with the mass migration of refugees to Europe.  Terrible news this past Friday, but can't say it was unexpected.  It was also literally spelled out by ISIS as what they intended to do (flood Europe with migrants and hide among them).

The news here at least acknowledges that rather than treat it as a completely unpredictable event like they often do: http://edition.cnn.com/2015/11...

Just hope the Western world takes the vulnerability of opening up to mass immigration a little more seriously now, but it seems like politicians these days have worked themselves into a corner where they must always do the most short-term, emotionally righteous decision rather than think things through on a longer term, more rational perspective.  The problem is they're always reacting to events instead of thinking one step ahead.  It's almost as if they'd rather endure crisis after crisis together rather than make the tough call against the herd to prevent one.  No matter what they do now with the immigration issue (close, tighten, whatever), whoever wanted to sneak in is already in, and they need to start looking past that.

Buried Memories

Another dream I had that played out like a movie.  Seems to be how all my ideas to come to me now.
================================
I am living off in the country side for some time.  There, I have a small isolated plot of land that I planted a farm on and regularly tend to for fun, but the house near it is pretty high tech and is where I do a bunch of more serious work for coding and other hobbies.  One day, some guy shows up while I'm out on my farm and tries to tell me I ought to work for his company and get a real job or something.  He starts telling me how it will be good experience to build resume and get real software skills, etc so I don't have to live on a farm anymore.  I ask if he knows what I actually do, and he says he can't tell, which just annoys the heck out of me that he'd dare even tell me what I should do with my life.  I show him that my farm is actually also a grave for past lives I've had and previous bodies I've...[More]

Helping vs Changing Goals

You don't help someone by telling them to change their goal.  If you're going to help them, help them achieve it.
