Cruelty Knows Many Forms

This week I wish to discuss cruelty for there are many forms of this nasty vice that currently infect almost everything we encounter. Whenever I turn on a Cable News Network, no matter which one, there is one message always conveyed—it is the message of us verses them. It seems that news as we used to know it a decade or more ago has died. There appears to be an agenda that accompanies the news and colors it accordingly. Question: Is the us against them a form of cruelty? Robbers Cave Obviously I think so. There are many psychological experiments ...

Division and Hatred

In today’s spotlight I want to open up a discussion regarding the division developing in our country. In my book, Gotcha! The Subordination of Free Will, I fleshed out something Dewey Phyllis, former FBI and Chief of Police, shared. It is the story of how Soviet intelligence planned to corrupt American values and divide its people—a plan that dates back to the fifties. A Divided House Now fast forward to the more recent disclosures regarding the investigations into the Russian meddling in American affairs. It’s now publicly known that their agenda, whether messing with our elections, or baiting division with ...

Becoming Rational In Our Discourse

In this week’s spotlight I wish to explore the idea of rational discussion in an environment where emotion tends to rule thinking. If you stop and reflect on the last time you disagreed with someone, you can ask yourself an easy and obvious question: why? Now I don’t mean the obvious here, like I hate Trump and he/she likes him, or the movie was great and they hated it, etc. What I really mean is why does the person you disagreed with think the way they do? Maybe They Are Right! What we seem to lack is our ability to ...

Patience and Perseverence

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss patience. Lao Tse is credited with offering this advice, “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.” We live at a time when folks seem to rush to conclusions, and judgments, and are easily riled over the slightest disagreements. We don’t seem to have time to hear each other out or the patience to consider alternative options. Add to this the constant state of increased arousal driven in large by world events, the news, the pundits, and the daily pressures of life, and many ...

The Gift of Giving

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss giving. There are many forms of giving and they all lead to some interesting findings. For example, did you know that you’re hard wired in such a way that the brain’s reward centers light up, to use the words of neuro-scientists, when you do something as simple as write a check to a cause that you believe in? Think of that for a moment, the act of giving actually rewards you with the stress busting feel-good chemical known as endorphins. Did you also know that the act of giving has been shown ...

Possible Human!

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss possibilities. I truly think of the mind as the ultimate frontier. There are so many potentials possible that it is staggering to consider. Take for instance savant syndrome. What is it that happened when someone was struck in the head only to awake in the hospital a mathematical genius—seeing the world in fractal geometry? What mechanism makes it possible for an autistic child with a limited vocabulary to correctly read the mind of their therapist and type words unknown to them such as ‘synesthesia?’ How is it possible for a child who ...
