Dreams – Showing The Real Me?

Brain-scientists have discovered that during dreams, the brain is electrically active like when we are awake. However, it is active in a chemically different way. Certain chemicals present during waking are reduced by half during non-dream sleep and are absent altogether during dream sleep. And so, science explains dreaming as just a by-product of these chemical changes in the brain. This seems to link with the philosophical idea of materialism that the world of physical matter is the only world there is. This states that to understand anything, including subjective consciousness, we only need to see it in terms of physics and chemistry. In contrast, Sigmund Freud believed that the content of the dream is meaningful. He thought it reveals something in a disguised form about our unconsc...

Police Fight Against Defunding, Thin-Skinned Blue Line Showing Their True Colours

Since the police killing of George Floyd in May 2020 and the subsequent mass mobilizations for police defunding and abolition, the defund movement has continued to organize.

90% Of Being A Successful Father Is Showing Up

Woody Allen says 90% of success in life is showing up. That's definitely true for being a good father. Your wife delivers the baby, but the ball is in your end of the court, half of the time, after that. I was terrified when I brought my infant son home from the hospital. I looked at the tiny, six pound, six-ounce, boy and nearly panicked when I realized he was going to be living with me. I didn't know how to feed him, change him, or get him to stop crying. I was afraid to hold him. I was the ultimate newbie dad. I wasn't confident I'd be able to fill a father's shoes. I was a full-time, financially strapped, married, twenty-year old college student when my son was born. I had no money, and only one way to get any.
