Reflections in August 2014 vol.1



In war in an age of war the act of ultimate defiance is to make another human being feel wonderful.

Testosterone, gestures of kindness are semen seeds. Men get busy, it will make you inherently happy and bear you many children.

Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). A doctrine that was supposed to be about deterrence, not prophecy. #Israel#Hamas#Palestine

Mimicry, the compulsion of humans to mirror their postures, facial expressions, and enemy war cries. Most posts on FB and Twitter. 

Better to deny the past in fear and embrace the present with courage than to embrace the past with courage and deny the present in fear.

“If you WANT #peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You TALK to your enemies.” Desmond Tutu. So who should be @ #Syria table? 

Will I ever see in my lifetime a rational decent Western policy that actually brings Muslim enemies together? #iran#Qatar#SaudiArabia

There is nothing that restores the soul as much as humans from a destroyed country singing with all their hearts. #Syria

What do you get when you put #Syrian Christians Muslims #Palestinians#jews in a Turkish bus on the way to nargeela ? Music

How do we design a future in which research is not the foundation of suppression of practice? Witness tobacco,climate denial. Witness #Syria
