I just came back from 5 days at the New Norcia Benedictibe Monastry guesthouse retreat. To say it did me good is an understatement. Rather than go into the overly private stuff I want to share some photographs I took while on my daily wonderings. I will probably use some
I am very interested in this whole debate around transhumanism. Aljazeera's The Stream ran a brief introductory overview which makes a lot of my previous links more accessible, although they have placed them all within this whole sphere of transhumanism (watch the video below). I'm not
