A.I.. vs Human nature

69 years ago Alan Turing came up with the idea of the Turing test to tell when an A.I. Has intelligence indistinguishable from our own. This morning I began to think about, if enough computational power was available and the code was written, what differences would there be between machines and humans. I was first …

The Not so United Kingdom

I think the title of this blog says it all, but I want you to know what I mean by this. Right now I would say the UK is heading down a rabbit hole at an ever increasing pace. Society is divided in so many different ways. I feel like equality and political correctness is …

Fightback: Part 2 of n

Yesterday was… interesting. I went and started an 8 session mindfulness course. It got me to do some meditation that I haven’t done for a long while. And it was damn good timing. I was struggling a lot yesterday, physically and emotionally. So much of me was aching. My stomach constantly felt like I was …

Fightback: part 1 of n

After I finished writing my last post I was feeling pretty optimistic, and that doesn’t happen very often. Unfortunately someone sent me something and I read one line and it flattened the optimism. To be honest it knocked me for six. It made me question a lot of things. Now I’m not going to go …

The paving of my road

Do you ever feel like you have so much to say and yet you just can’t find the words to say it? I’ve been trying to write this blog post for a while now but the words just won’t come. So I apologise for the bluntness of this blog, and as I do not know …

The Beauty of Photography

Taking photos is definitely one of my greatest passions. There is no other feeling like it when you have a DSLR in your hands and you’re capturing a moment that shall never happen again. There’s so many different types of photography its hard to choose which is my most favourite. I guess it just comes …

Physical vs Emotional

In the news and in society we hear all the time about physical self harm, but we never hear about emotional self harm. When we think about self harm we think about people cutting themselves or eating disorders. Sometimes we may even think about people putting themselves in risky situations. Be honest with yourself though, …

Influencing People

This is a topic I’ve struggled with for some time. Generally, we want other people to choose options that they wish to choose. We don’t want them to do something purely because we think it’s right. We want them to decide it’s right. For instance, when I was thinking of leaving work, several people said …

The Several Faces of Everyone

We all have several faces that’s acceptable. We have our face at home, and we also have ourselves at work. These are just two examples of when it is acceptable to show different sides of ourselves. But yet we then moan when people show a different side of themselves to different people. We seem to …

Optimistic Pessimism

Well last night Marcia asked if I had done any more blog posts and I said I hadn’t been in the right frame of mind to do so. She suggested I do a post about being positive and thinking positive. I pointed out that it was me she was talking to and that just doesn’t …
