We need to find pain to heal it, but it should not be intentional.
There is a beautiful and ugly idea. Love hurts.
Laing the psychatrist said insanity is relative. I thought he was deeply wrong.
Insanity of the truth and insanity of the social system are different ideas.
In a sense, Laing is right.
1. The idea that information is split up into bits so people can understand it is a good one. This website has been reduced. Some sections have been taken out and others where development
was incomplete have been removed. This website is now more amenable to the original intention to translate it to Spanish, Arabic and Chinese. Conceptually the ideas in this website are
superadvanced. Even more advanced material will be contained in the companion website www.ethicalgalacticevacuations.ie, but is not yet set up. The material in the successor website is
bizarre. It contains very advanced theory and applications people can understand, but nobody else feels they ought to be.
2. BEC The Brighton Energy Co-operative website.
3. The Assayer A free scientific and other eBook website.

Hofstadter's rule: it always takes longer than you think, including factoring in Hofstadter's rule.
Adams's first rule of delay: It always takes precisely three and a half times as long as a reasonable estimate, unless there is gratuitous help, when the reasonable estimate is correct.
The main reason for the apparent difference between Hofstader's rule and the partly researched Adams's first rule is that Hofstadter's rule does not factor in distractions. These can be
cognitive or physical. Our transactions can be with computers. Computer systems seem considerably more badly designed than they were 40 years ago. We interact with people. In
interfacing with incompetent social systems, we are faced with managers selected by a class system that rewards indolence. As a further swipe at the wealthy, they derive their education
in same-sex schools which encourage same-sex relationships. We should find this attractive. Pupils at Eton are taught day-to-day movements of Roman Emperors. Frequently they are
unable to conceptualise a plug, much less how to fix one (I can't do the latter either). The result is that technical decisions are decided on fascist principles applied to technology which
amount to technological lunacy. The concern of fascist universities to teach management of social systems from the point of view of the maximisation of wealth rather than services,
results in decisions to protect embezzlements via global accountancy fraud which have no relationship to services, except that they should be reduced to save expenditure. So we have
worse services than we should. That may increase the time we spend unnecessarily on them.
Resequencing of distractions only improves these estimates by 5%.
Adams's second rule of delay: In a successful day you could complete 50% of your ambitions. You attempt 20% of them unsuccessfully.
Adams's Global Incompetence rule: Not only do you not know what you are doing, nor does anyone else.
Adams's Viability rule: You do not know what you are doing, but you know you are doing it.
Lastly we conclude with
Adams's Immersion principle: The more practice in doing what you don't know what you are doing happens, the better and better it gets, until finally you do it perfectly without
