This Week… The end of the beginning, Consciousness and no, crisps are not part of your 5 a day

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” Winston Churchill

“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” T. S. Eliot
“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.” Lao Tzu
“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.

“As a young person over the last few months I have seen a number of my peers and friends drop out of formal education. I felt uneasy on their behalf, questioning what they will now do. They reassured me they would find work, but they have faced rejection. My friends have become NEETs.” Interesting ideas piece by Trim Lamba on using technology to tackle social problems

Let’s all give him a big hand anyway… and get him haircut.
