When Fake News Divides

In this week’s spotlight I wish to address something we all hear a lot about today, and that is the idea of fake news. Now I’m not going to go down the road of Trumpian fake news, so relax if that concerns you. No, I’m more interested in bringing to your attention how the media can rush to judgment in ways that divide our country and contaminate our thinking about matters outside of the world of politics. Sensationalism We hear a lot today about the evils of Google, as this past weekend’s 60 Minutes show argued, or the Facebook scandal ...

Smart Toys

In this week’s spotlight I wish to remind you of some of the threats that exist in today’s world of ever advancing technology. In my book, Gotcha! The Subordination of Free Will, I addressed issues like televisions that watch you, automobiles that can be taken over remotely while you’re behind the wheel, devices that listen in to your conversations, free flashlight apps for your phone that track your every move, cloning devices that copy data from your computer or cell phone in an instant, and so forth. None of these devices are science fiction and they represent just the tip ...

The Impostor Syndrome

In today’s spotlight, I would like to discuss the impostor syndrome, or the idea that if others knew what you know about yourself, that somehow this would diminish or even discredit you. This complex, or syndrome, (also known as impostor phenomenon, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which people doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent, often internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud.” Many people hold themselves back from success because they fail to believe that they deserve it. As a result they can develop methods to avoid attention and allow those feelings ...

Who I Am and Who I Want to Be

In today’s spotlight I would like to discuss the notion of self. We all have a self-portrait of sorts—that is, we all know ourselves by some common measures like our name, marital status, home, occupation, etc., and we also all know ourselves in interior ways such as our likes, dislikes, proclivities, attitudes, ambitions, secrets, and so forth. As such, our identity is who we have come to know ourselves as. Constant Self? Now imagine that you lost your senses all together—would that change who you know yourself to be? Probably not. So what if you suddenly became an acquired savant ...

Control

Who’s In Control In this week’s spotlight I would like to discuss the difference between what we can control and what we can’t. We all know people who are, what is commonly referred to as, control freaks. Generally speaking, a control freak is a person who feels an obsessive need to exercise control over themselves and others, and to take command of any situation. To some extent, we are all somewhat inclined to be a bit of a control freak especially in light of the idea that we should be in control of ourselves—but just how much control do we ...

Ghosts and Ghouls: Real or Imagined

In today’s spotlight I would like to discuss the notion of ghosts and ghouls. Defining the difference between ghosts and ghouls may not be as straightforward as one might at first blush think. A ghost is generally defined as an apparition of a dead person that is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. Now, does that include a master, a guide, and/or an angel? The matter is unclear here. In other words, does a person have to be dead in order to be a disincarnate being appearing to you? As for a ...
