  1. I read this and couldn't help sharing it here. Would be interested in the collective opinions. https://thelogicofscience.com/2016/04/12/dying-the-way-that-nature-intended-appeal-to-nature-fallacies/
  2. Hope everyone is staying safe in life under COVID. How is everyone doing?
  3. Im thinking of Wordsworth's Prelude. He said it was "the growth of a poet's mind.," so....
  4. So...given the current state of Trump America, is it possible for the country to sublate its current circumstances to a higher plateau of knowledge?
  5. Well not sure about that mate. Language shapes the way we see the world so if changes made in language last long enough they will soak into our consciousnesses and make us perceive the world differently, right?
  6. But don't people choose to be intimidated?
  7. Since it's your birthday.....happy birthday @Gord Barentsen!
  8. A colleague of mine saw this and passed it along to me and it seems very fitting for you @Gord Barentsen !! (not because you write erotica tho 😄) How my erotic article sparked a witch hunt WWW.TES.COM A raunchy article that he'd written for a website landed Guy Doza in trouble at school. Now he asks: do we have to surrender civil liberties to become teachers?
  9. Very cool...this saves the term "unique snowflake" for me which I began to hate when I heard it applied to everyone 😫
  10. A fractal generator which I thought is perfectly suitable for this site!
  11. Hogwash. DOnt we already have aesthetics everywhere in life? rituals? i can think of a million things wrong with this perspective which seems to take a narrow view on what "aesthetics is! Not everyone who has daily "rituals" is succumbing to a fascist will.
  12.

The first paragraph says it all "Australian universities hosting Chinese government-funded education centres have signed agreements explicitly stating they must comply with Beijing's decision-making authority over teaching at the facilities."
  13. Maybe but people arent open to dialogue anymore about subtletys in language. No one has the patience. so is it worth trying to convince people? or is it better just to get rid of the phrase and find other ways?
  14. An interesting article on how the brain corrects words with letters misplaced: Can Our Brains Really Read Jumbled Words as Long as The First And Last Letters Are Correct? WWW.SCIENCEALERT.COM
  15. Still reeling from the ScoMo debacle...

  16. and here I was thinking you always typed something up.....
  17. is there any reason I can't get in to POlitics & Religion? do I need to pay or apply for access?
  18. How do we distinguish them? everything is political but everything is language too right? anyway i think it's a good thing in the end. it's only a t-shirt and a slogan so I'm not sure it's worth all the ruffled feathers. ANd yes I realise people will whinge about freedom of speech and so forth but language isn't free and never has been! Oh there's also a Wikipedia article about this: It's OK to be white - Wikipedia EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG
