Critical thinking will set you free! « Hornbill Unleashed By Sim Kwang Yang Our mind and our heart are our most precious and free possessions, and yet all through life, we allow our minds and our hearts to be enslaved by others and ourselves. We can free ourselves from such external or self-enslavement only through critical thinking. The imperfect Wikipedia gives the following various definitions of “critical thinking”: “Critical thinking is purposeful and reflective judgment about what to believe or what to do in response to observations, written expressions, or arguments. What a mouthful of words. Essentially, critical thinking is not just a skill, and it is far more than skills in problem solving. Critical thinking is not just about finding means to an end, but thinking about the end also. Critical thinking begins with questions. Critical thinking is also about questioning our own questioning. In a logic class I attended over 35 years ago, I was taught many “illogical fallacies” commonly accepted by logicians for being illegitimate. Like this:
The hidden world under Antarctica: Researchers reveal what lies beneath the ice Researchers have revealed what actually lies under the western parts of the icy continent of Antarctica. There is a hidden world under Antarctica, in a new study, researchers have shown giant ‘wetlands’ 800 metres beneath the Ice in western Antarctica. Thanks to the Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling (WISSARD) project financed by the National Science Foundation (NSF) researchers are one step closer to discovering exactly what lies beneath the thick ice sheets covering most parts of the icy continent. Reports indicate that Lake Whillans — first discovered in 2007, covering a staggering area of 20sq miles— which lies beneath 800 meters of ice in Western Antarctica is eerily similar to a ‘wetland.’ Researchers hope that further studies will allow them to understand how sea levels rise, and how ice behaves in response to global warming. Two of the most interesting papers were those published in Geology and the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters.
Diamagnetic Gravity Vortexes Diamagnetic Gravity Vortexes by Richard LeFors Clark Waves of gravity pour from an extraordinary (and imaginary) cosmic accident —a head-on collision of two black holes approaching from left and right. Kenneth Eppley and Larry Smarr used a computer to calculate and draw contours of the variable curvature of space that constitutes the radiation. Such a collision would convert about a thousandth part of the rest-energy of the black holes into gravity waves. (Photo: L. THE EARTH GRID, HUMAN LEVITATION AND GRAVITY ANOMALIES Knowledge of the Earth Grid or "crystalline Earth" is very ancient and has been utilized by a number of civilizations. While the subject of the Earth Grid has by now been covered in a considerable number of publications, one point in the Grid, marked by a long and strange history, at the eastern tip of Lake Ontario, is worth special mention. Daniel Home is the world famous levitator of the 19th century who lived in this Lake Ontario Grid point area. Diagram 8 and 9
Anarchism: A history, origins and context Good evening everyone. This is my second of two papers I wrote this term which I've adapted over for this setting to share with ATS. My first one on Napoleon was written as a side thing, more than anything else. It turned into a serious effort only after I was gripped by the story itself. This is different, and this one was a serious and hard research effort from the start. Anarchism: A History, Origins and Context Anarchism is among the most commonly misunderstood world views which we see carried by people today. Pierre Joseph Proudhon Anarchism is first seen in use as a term in 1793 within the book “Inquiry Concerning Modern Justice” by William Godwin. One aspect that is seen early within the origins of Anarchism is a deep dislike and distrust for the communist system. Proudhon’s pivotal work and texts contributed the structure of ideas for what would become an influential movement. Michael Bakunin Karl Marx . . .onto America

TMU: The Hollow Earth Theory - Fact Or Fiction? Is there any truth to the hollow earth claims? Does the seismic data support the existence of there being a hollow interior to our planet in any way? We are just putting the information out there, its up to you to make up your mind about it. The Hollow Earth While most of us would like to coincide with the general idea that life evolves under only certain criteria we have been conditioned to understand, there are some who know the seeming void is teeming with consciousness … among the many other worlds that are, there may be a world that exists inside earth, subterranean cities where flourish descendants of advanced civilizations from an ancient time. The ones from Atlantis and Lemuria who retreated from the face of the planet escaping inevitable peril due to the great flood and the use of destructive nuclear technology are among the many other civilizations you will find down there! The first public scientific evidence occurred in 1947 when Rear Admiral Richard E. He writes, End Log .

The Reptilian Aliens and the Council of the 13 'Royal' Families Excerpts from Blue Blood, True Blood: Conflict & Creation The leader of the Earth's Illuminati is called the "Pindar". ... Excerpts from Blue Blood, True Blood: Conflict & Creation The leader of the Earth's Illuminati is called the "Pindar". The Pindar is a member of one of the 13 ruling Illuminati families, and is always male. The title, Pindar, is an abbreviated term for "Pinnacle of the Draco". Symbolically, this represents the top of power, control, creation, penetration, expansion, invasion, and fear. The holder of this rank reports to the purebred Reptilian leader in the inner Earth. Recently, there are reports that the Marquis de Libeaux is the Pindar, but this is disinformation. He is based in Germany near Frankfurt. Interestingly, there is a winery on the east end of Long Island, not far from Montauk Point, called Pindar Vineyards. This fits nicely into the plan, as this area will be a part of the capital district of the Earth/United Nations in the Empire State! Publicly, Mr.
Alchemy & The Philospher Stone Notre ennemi n'a pas de nom, ni de visage... Notre ennemi c'est l'Article 123 du Traité de Lisbonne Pour celles et ceux qui pensent encore que leur bulletin de vote peut changer les choses... Mais qui dirige réellement la France ? Peuples d'Europe, Jeunes et vieux, riches et pauvres, rasés ou barbus, cigales ou fourmis, ce message s’adresse à Tous et nous concerne Tous ! L’article 123 du Traité de Lisbonne précise que TOUS les États membres de la Communauté européenne n’ont plus le droit d’emprunter auprès de leur banque centrale. Ils sont dorénavant dans l’obligation d’emprunter auprès des marchés financiers, moyennant des intérêts. Descendant de la loi Pompidou-Giscard de 1973 et de l’article 104 du Traité de Maastricht, cet article est à l’origine de l’endettement et des sommes faramineuses engagées par l’état pour le remboursement d’une dette qui ne devrait pas exister. Les responsables de cette folie ? C’est nous… Nous, car nous avons laissé les hommes au pouvoir écrire les règles du pouvoir. Il est temps d’arrêter ce massacre.

CodeBangers | A collection of solutions for the bastard programming problems. FDR's Democratic Propaganda Today's progressive message-makers can learn a lot from Franklin Roosevelt's homey "fireside chats." On March 12, 1933, a week after his inauguration and in the midst of a monumental economic crisis, President Franklin Roosevelt took to the radio to address the nation. "My friends," he began in a calm, resonant voice, "I want to talk for a few minutes with the people of the United States about banking." About the Author Stephen Duncombe Stephen Duncombe, the author, most recently, of Dream: Re-Imagining Progressive Politics in an Age of Fantasy (New... Also by the Author The Paris Principle: politics are sooo hot. This was propaganda. There was no official propaganda program during the New Deal, just a hodgepodge of media efforts carried out by an alphabet soup of agencies. Many progressives today have an adverse reaction to propaganda: ours is a politics based in reason and rationality, not symbols and fantasy. Bill McKibben: A Green Corps Michael J.

How to Study Less by Learning Things Once You read over your notes. Then you read them over again. Then you read them over a third time. Then you take the test and are surprised at just how much you missed. Despite reading everything three times! A lot of study time is wasted because of one problem: you fail to learn things the first time around. Repeatedly going over the same information like putting a band-aid over a sieve. The key to reducing the amount of time you study is simple: learn things the first time you see them, instead of after dozens of repetitions. This is all easier said than done. Step One: Find the Holes If you want to repair a leaky brain, you need to figure out where the holes are. What from this section am I most likely to forget? When you identify weak points, you can invest more time in fixing those instead of wasting time with a blanket studying technique of all information. Step Two: Repair Weak Points Once you’ve identified potential weak-points, you should immediately seek to fix them. Memorizing?
