Theo Verelst Diary Page

Thu may 31, 2001

I've decided after good example to write some diary pages with toughts and events.

Oh, in case anybody fails to understand, I'd like to remind them that these pages are copyrighted, and that everything found here may not be redistributed in any other way then over this direct link without my prior consent. That includes family, christianity, and other cheats. The simple reason is that it may well be that some people have been ill informed because they've spread illegal 'copies' of my materials even with modifications. Apart from my moral judgement, that is illegal, and will be treated as such by me. Make as many references to these pages as you like, make hardcopies, but only of the whole page, including the html-references, and without changing a iota or tittel...

And if not? I won't hesitate to use legal means to correct wrong that may be done otherwise. And I am serious. I usually am. I'm not sure I could get 'attempt to grave emotional assault' out of it, but infrigement on copyright rules is serious enough. And Jesus called upon us to respect the authorities of state, so christians would of course never do such a thing. Lying, imagine that.

I have 20 minutes at this point, so just some notes I think are worth sharing.

Social Observations

Yesterday late I was (still) reading quite a bit in the nanobio area, amoung other things brain research not just on rats and pigeons, which seems to suggest there are neurons in the visual motion detection area which thusfar can not be found to correlate a motion direction tested in their visual stimuli set, but also about sheep, and the effect of certain parts of their forbrain associated with social behaviour.

I'm not positively sure about the (historic) knowledge about special characteristics of sheep possibly having led to the particular choice in certain comparisons in the bible, but in the experiment, it seems the social behaviour in terms of recognition of the young of a mother was tested. It seems that humans in some social - connected brain areas have far less development than other mamals. I've mainly looked at sheep and found them look back sort of, stupid, sheepish (in dutch that's a double meaning, I'm sure), funny because they seem to have a mind of their own about it, sort of

When I observe various relations and social ungoings, I see possible forebodes of behaviour that unfortunately sets us quite apart from average and extreme (or lets call them new for the sake of argument, like in commercials) chimpansees.

In the past and more recently at times, I've met some that are capable and have to some extend be willing to exhibit and to some extend stay with behaviour that is the opposite, which I think is more along the lines of possible human behaviour that is worth striving for. I usually have assumed that some that I might like have such thinking as fundamental idea quite present in themselves, or why else would I bother, and I in normal life would not see much reason for otherwise.

Of course the last years I've been quite confronted with the idea that some are willing to go quite far to actually be against such idea, in practice, while it mainly costs them, and while it achieves nothing much worth while temporarily or in the end, and of course have been aware of clear causes having to do with differences of opinion and simply different truths concerning faith, or lets say the spiritual and who is considered God.

I think certain circumstances I see certain people in may well be the direct reason and cause for them to be (in my former opinion) limited, somewhat strange, unwilling to arrive at desirable relations, double, unclear, distant, extremely clearly unreal for some unclear reason, or in other ways not acceptable for what they sometimes maybe did want to suggest to be.

Some that have been willing and sometimes effectively been against such circumstances may have had a lot harder time than I have imagined, and considering I've filled megabytes about the ideas in the in my opinion wrong direction, at least some that for good reasons have done effort should not remain unmentioned as such.

Continuation of the above, and some remarks about the things I've looked at in the medical library, in addition to the nanopage.

Social observations continued

It has not been my conviction that the natural deprivaty of man and the presence of sin in this world must unavoidedly lead to only misery and the impossibility to lead at least a reasonably normal life. It still isn't realy, though I think getting back at some of the convictions I quite firmly held in mind
