Many people interested in observing their inner world are suffering from this feeling of living a mechanical life, they feel they’ve lost the potential to be spontaneous. I think it’s quite important to examine what actually spontaneity is.. or even better.. what is not a “spontaneous action”!

Acting according to a motive, according to a thought, an ideal, a stereotype, can’t be a spontaneous action.. Continue reading →

I feel i need to somehow create a code that will make it easy for me to communicate what is found in my mind. Lets be realistic. Words is all we have (especially behind our monitors) in order to communicate. And words are symbols, symbols of a thing.. but we need to be careful.. the word is not the thing, the description is never the described. We should take into consideration that words are only symbols.

Having said that, i will try to describe what i mean by using the word “intelligence”.

Today it was a music jamming day.. this is something we are experimenting on during the last 8 months with unexpected, surprising effects. But I will speak about that in another post. What happened today? We started playing but nothing was working fine.. I was feeling our bassist, Mimis was continuously getting out of the tempo. To keep the right tempo I was hitting my right foot down, at the same moment Ageliki, our percussionist, was trying to follow Mimis, Pantelis, the second guitarist didn’t bother with the whole situation and after a few minutes the whole magic disappeared.

Unexpected things happened a few hours ago.. It was 1.00 am and I was having a chat on FB.. a fellow called Kyriakos posted a text describing how important is the influence of parents to children. We’ve shared many comments and suddenly something strange happened.

Kyriakos: Maths put mind in order and make you realize that simple rational thought is the only solution for a problem.

George: I’m confused because.. ..I do see simple rational thought is the only way to solve a problem but the question is if there is no thought at all are there any problems at all? And if there are no problems we don’t even need thought, rational or neurotic. Continue reading →
