  • Expanding Empathy & The Moral Circle The human tendency to draw boundaries is pervasive. The moral circle is the boundary drawn around those entities in the world deemed worthy of moral consideration. "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein "Diogenes the Cynic declared himself to be the citizen not of one country but of the whole world. Stoic philosophers like Seneca and Marcus Aurelius also argued that our loyalty should be to the world community, not to the state in which we happen to be born. Voltaire, Goethe, and Schiller espoused similar ideals of world, rather than national, citizenship. Yet patriotism has proved difficult to dislodge from its high place among the conventionally accepted virtues. The explanation for this could be that patriotism rests, at least in part, on a biological basis; but the explanation could also be cultural. Culture can itself be a factor in the evolutionary process, those cultures prevailing which enhance the group's prospect of survival. The prevalence of patriotism could ...
  • The Fragility of Humanity (The Gravity of Love - Enigma) History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake. James Joyce "There lies before us, if we choose, continued progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we instead choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? We appeal, as human beings, to human beings: remember your humanity and forget the rest." -Albert Einstein (his last signed letter) "We all have to share a small planet and we need to learn how to live together." Hissa Hilal Saudi Poet Just as Socrates felt that is was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the *** of myths and half-truths to the unfettered realm of creative ***ysis and objective appraisal, we must see the need of having nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men to rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood. -Martin Luther King, letter from a Birmingham jail "Everywhere new technology and communications brings men and nations closer together, the concerns of one inevitably becomes the concerns of all. And our new closeness is stripping away the false masks, the illusion of differences which is the root of injustice and of hate and of war. Only earthbound man still clings to the dark and poisoning superstition that his world is bounded by the nearest hill, his universe ends at river shore, his common humanity is enclosed in the tight circle of those who share his town or his views and ...

  • Cosmic Connection: Neil deGrasse Tyson & Carl Sagan Frequently consider the connection of all things in the universe. We should not say I am an Athenian or I am a Roman but I am a citizen of the Universe. (Marcus Aurelius, Meditations) "There lies before us, if we choose, continued progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we instead choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? We appeal, as human beings, to human beings: remember your humanity and forget the rest." -Albert Einstein (his last signed letter) "There are some oddities in the perspective with which we see the world. The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be." Douglas Adams "I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky." Carl Sagan Man seems merely dust postponed: the sublime as an encounter pleasurable, intoxicating, even with human weakness in the face of strength, age and size of the universe. Alain de Botton "Is no one inspired by our present picture of the universe? Our poets do not write about it; our artists do not try to portray this remarkable thing. The value of science remains unsung by singers: you are reduced to hearing not a song or poem, but an evening lecture about it. This is not yet a scientific age." --Richard Feynman Just ...
  • The Road to Santiago by Heather Dale You know the drill... A townsman's life is even, like the dust upon the road; Not changing with the seasons — just fortune's fickle load. But sitting on my step and bending hide and thread to task, I saw the first man walking, I saw the first man walking, I saw the first of many walking past. In ones and twos they traveled; the first hints of the wave. With hat and stick and scallop they would go to see the grave Of the Saint who'd lived among us, a town he'd come to save As he walked along the road to Santiago. With pennies in their pockets and blisters on their feet, They'd come within their weariness, the humble and the meek, For while a day could bring them wages, these months would bring release From the road that they were walking, This road that they were walking, This road that led them forth in their belief. Soon the trickle was a torrent; then the torrent was a flood. And like Noah, how they laughed amid the gadflies and the mud. Oh, I wondered what they shared that made such disparate men beloved As they walked along the road to Santiago? One had come from Germany, and one from here in Spain, And one from near the Bosporus where Constantine had reigned. From every land they ventured forth, then ventured home again, And found a road worth walking, They found this road worth walking, For all agreed their roads were much the same. And so I laid my work aside — the day's long toils would keep, For, what was said "A man must sow if he intends to reap"? So with a ...
  • Buddha Machine - Mucilinda 3 1 CHAPTER II. Mucilinda. Thus have I heard. On a certain occasion, subsequent to his attainment of Buddhahood, the Blessed One dwelt at Uruvela, on the banks of the stream Neranjara at the foot of the Mucilinda tree. At that time, the Blessed One, having sat in an attitude of meditation for seven days, experienced the bliss of Emancipation. Now it came pass that a great cloud appeared, out of season, and for seven days rain fell, cold winds blew and darkness prevailed. And the Serpent King, Mucilinda, came forth from his hidden realm and winding his coils seven times around the body of the Blessed One, he formed with his serpent's hood a great canopy above the head of the Buddha, and he uttered these words to himself; "may no coldness touch the Blessed One, nor any heat, may no gadflies or gnats, or winds, or sunheat distress the Blessed One." And the Blessed One, at the close of the seventh day arose from that state of trance and Mucilinda, the Serpent King, seeing that the sky was clear and cloudless, loosed his coils from around the body of the Blessed One and concealing his own nature, took upon him the form of a youth and stood before the Blessed One with folded hands, worshipping him. And the Blessed One, in this connection, on that occasion, breathed forth this solemn utterance: "How sweet the solitude of the peaceful, of him who has heard and perceived the Truth! Happy to be without malice! restraintful towards all beings! Happy are the passion-free! Happy he who ...

  • A Dawn of Reason & Science In the sixth and fifth centuries BC a new kind of thinker appeared in Greek city-states, dedicated to finding the origins of the world and everything in it, using observation and reason rather than tradition and myth. We call these thinkers Presocratic philosophers, and recognize them as the first philosophers of the Western tradition, as well as the originators of scientific thinking. The Milesian or Ionian School. Miletus, on the coast of Ionia in Asia Minor, in the 6th century was a prosperous trading center with numerous colonies; its government was aristocratic, and no divinely-backed King or priesthood dominated society and learning. In order to explain the origin of things and the nature of change and motion, the philosophers in Miletus sought to discover or describe one primary, material substance as the base or elemental foundation of all natural objects and the source of all motion. Just as Socrates felt that is was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the *** of myths and half-truths to the unfettered realm of creative ***ysis and objective appraisal, we must see the need of having nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men to rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood. -Martin Luther King, letter from a Birmingham jail Xenophanes-And of course the clear and certain truth no man has seen, nor will ...

"There lies before us, if we choose, continued progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we instead choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? We appeal, as human beings, to human beings: remember your humanity and forget the rest." -Albert Einstein (his last signed letter) Just as Socrates felt that is was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the *** of myths and half-truths to the unfettered realm of creative ***ysis and objective appraisal, we must see the need of having nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men to rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood. -Martin Luther King, letter from a Birmingham jail Frequently consider the connection of all things in the universe. We should not say I am an Athenian or I am a Roman but I am a citizen of the Universe. (Marcus Aurelius, Meditations) "People have two modes of thought," concludes Solomon. "There's the intuitive gut-level mode, which is what most of us are in most of the time. And then there's a rational ***ytic mode, which takes effort and attention."

  • Revenge of the Gadflies
  • Local "Gadfly" John Bush Rails On Randi Shade and Austin City Council About the Status Quo John Bush of Texans for Accountable Government talks to the Austin City Council about their continual cementing of the status quo of ignoring the people, bending to the will of the "growth machine", and allowing the federal government to dictate local policy through the grant process. John also calls out Randi Shade, who is up for re-election in May 2011, for her referring to local fluoride activists as "Gadflies" in an interview with the Austin Bulldog about the recent Open Meetings Act controversy. Randi Shade: "I don't mind the gadflies on one topic. Like, the people who come every week on fluoride. They come every week and they say the same thing. But, if the fluoride people start talking about deer and about Water Treatment Plant 4, then it starts to get kind of confusing. So, we do have some people where they'll just sign up to speak on any issue, no matter what the issue. Then, it's hard to take them as seriously as they would want (us) to."

  • The Gods of Newport - John Jakes Get more information on this AudioBook download at: Written by: John Jakes In the late nine***th century, Newport, Rhode Island, was a cauldron of money, excess, and unapologetic greed, where reputations were made and lost in a whirlwind of parties and fancied slights. Giant marble mansions, lavish dinner parties, and vicious social climbing - is a summer playground of the very rich. Into this rarefied world comes infamous railroad mogul and robber baron Sam Driver. He wants his beautiful daughter to have the best Newport has to offer-even if that means breaking all the rules... and amid the glamour of yacht races, tennis matches, and costume balls raged undeclared class warfare, scandalous doings, even madness. In 1893, railroad mogul Sam Driver, one of the few surviving robber barons of the lawless years after the Civil War, knocks on the door of fabled Newport with his daughter, Jenny, determined not to be turned away. In the past, his "new money" was tainted by his rapacious reputation, and even now, an enemy with a pedigree of wealth and position vows to slam every door in Sam's face. But he is determined to win a place in the strange rarefied world of Newport's brief summer season, presided over by social gadflies Ward McAllister and the androgynous Harry Lehr, both of whom will assist the Drivers...for a price.
