Good

One of the true mysteries that I have pondered through the years is what good is. We talk about it all the time, and everybody, or most of us, wish to be good persons.  But do we know what good is?I know, because I have finally had a revelation reading the Platonic dialogue Protagoras. It […]

​In Europe, many people are disheartened by the development of the states and the societies in general. It is all going the wrong way.  So what do we do? Let me give you an example of my own life. I have just had a little daughter, the second in fact. Rakel and Esther, two Jewish […]

What is Israel really? To understand that, and truly remake the understanding of Israel. We need to reflect on the identity of Israel.  Israel was initiated as a Social-democratic state. After some time, as Socialism has vaned, Israel is now searching for a way to understand what Israel is today.  In this work, as a […]

I truly believe, that I am a good person. I might not be perfect, who are? But I have always tried to look at the world, and do what is good.  Doing good is somehting philosophers have discussed for millenia. Aristotle claims that good is a final epitomic virtue called happiness. Plato talks about the […]

Oxford

I keep thinking about Oxford. It kind of drags me towards it. Not the surface, not the jolly pubs in and around Oxford, but something deeper. When I was in Oxford. I was so fortunate to join a symposium in the church of saint Marys. A beautiful little church at the heart of Oxford. I […]

It has been a while since the beginning of the American election, and some of the issues that are close to my heart have lacked the attention that it deserves. I am only one solitary Jew, what am I to do? Anyway, the discussion of spirit has taken a leap in my own head. After […]

To be good

September 27th, 2016 No comments

To be spiritual, I believe the essence is about being a good person. The ethical discussion must therefor be at the heart of any person that believes himself to be a Christian, a Muslim or a Jew. It is like that, right? But the problem about being a moral person is the fact that the […]

The gospel of joy

In a very secular society, all virtue seem to disappear sometimes. There is very little “right or wrong”, there is confusion and the disappearance of traditional values. Well, I am very traditional in some ways. You know I am a family man, I truly love my wife, and strive everyday to make my little family […]

Mr. Zuckerberg asked at Facebook about thoughts concerning Facebook. What is the essence of it really, and how may it develop. This is not a critical essay, but an essay to lay a philosophical idea behind some of the UI development. Lets have a little tour back memory lane, to where it all started, that […]

When we talk about climate change, I have often been a little sceptical. Because even though nature is a place that I know I go to find G-d, the simplistic idea that all nature is intertwined and is G-d did not seem right to me. Let me give you an example. When I walked the […]

Good

When we are confronted with the chaos and the insecurity of a world that seems to lack meaning, it can be a good thing to take a step back and truly understand what we are good at, us humans. One of the problems of the Socialist revolution, was, that we forgot one very important thing […]

Ethics

Ethics is one of those fields that are really hard to understand. Let me give you an example. When Jesus Christ (the benevolent and spiritual jew) was crucified, he was crucified because he rejected all rules. It is written in the bible, that the Pharisees, some not some benevolent and less spiritual jews, condemned him […]

Philosophy

There is a lot of talking about “disruption” these days. How IT tech startups, and grownups are changing the way we see the world. As Apple, as Facebook, as Amazon, as Spotify. The same happens in the academic life. It has happened numerous times; Anaxagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau, Walden, Kierkegaard, Adam Smith, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, […]

The ten commandments

I think I have just solved the mystery AGAIN! You know, I have been pondering what it is to be good, after taking a long hike around Plato, Anaxagoras, metaphysics of the highest order. I realised that to be good is to emulate the spiritual world, and strive to remake G-ds realm here on earth. […]

Paradise

According to the wise clerics of the temple of Isis, we can see Isis as a victorious and tender yet beautiful virgin skipping over the earth on her wings of flight. Sometimes she is above, sometimes she is below. I have pondered about this dilemma and what those words really mean; as above so below. […]
