    Learn to Think! and the Quest for Freedom

    The human being is not only constantly developing in outer appearance, but also in his inner being. This crisis offers a special opportunity to look at this developing inner self. Questions about what is good or right, what is truth, what is truthfulness, what is the value of human beings and what is morality are questions that ... read more...

    Truth only becomes valuable with wisdom in our activity

    Truth only becomes valuable when there is wisdom in our activity. Indeed, our certainty with regard to the truthful standpoint is found only when we have had the courage to also take other standpoints and actually consider them. To take only our own standpoint, without honestly assessing the value of those of our fellow creature... read more...

    Learn to Think! and how to begin

    Because we have thoughts and because we can learn we think that we can think. We can absorb a great deal and put it into our memory and perhaps reproduce it, so we think: Yes, I can think! And in the course of life, we have formed opinions and judgements and we think that we have formed them ourselves, so we have the feeling tha... read more...

    Crisis habituation: getting used to it?

    After a year of social restrictions due to the corona measures and political turmoil due to affairs, you find that you need about a year to get used to a crisis. That can mean giving up and just resigning yourself to everything. But you can also take up life again and develop positivity. While the current crisis is stil... read more...

    Human experience of nature during Easter

    During the Easter season, when nature germinates from winter into a blossoming spring, and we turn our eye outward through the impulse of the self, we as humans feel strengthened and carried by the power that comes to us from nature. And just as we need nature to fill us with life force each year, nature needs our attention to t... read more...

    Future predictions abound, but the past seems to have to be swept away

    Because of everything that has happened in the past year, we seem to lose our attention to the daily figures and measures that the state imposes on us. Alongside the multitude of predictions for the future, it sometimes seems that our traditions from the past must be forgotten, wiped out, as if they were never there. No... read more...

    It is not left or right, but make or break!

    In today's political landscape, the classic qualification of left or right no longer serves much purpose for a voter. Whereas left-wing parties were usually socially oriented and right-wing parties more businesslike, in the current corona crisis parties are more distinguished by qualifications such as corona critica... read more...

    Cause and effect and the art of interpretation

    In thinking, it is important to see the relationship between a cause and its effect, so-called causality. But precisely becoming aware of the lack of such causality is also an important competency for the art of interpretation. If we look at the interpretation of facts and data in the current corona crisis, we see that, due to a... read more...

    Freedom: groupthinking and independent thinking

    We are increasingly seeing that individual people with strong opinions are, it seems, easily persuaded to conform to the prevailing idea of a group. Of course, it could be the advancing insight of that individual that makes him or her change their mind, but there are plenty of examples where the debate takes an unexpectedly surp... read more...

    COVID-19: humanity under siege

    The NOS published a report on an article that appeared in the German newspaper ‘Die Welt’ about released emails from March and April 2020 showing that government leaders asked questions to scientists in order to get a mental grip on the situation, which could help to plan measures of a preventive and repressive natur... read more...
