Welcome

Still thinking? If you are here by accident then feel free to wander around. There is very little in the way of straight lines in the content or intention of the content makers. In fact, should straight lines exist, please feel free to point this out as it would identify a flaw in the process.

Stillthinking is a place to sit and ponder the issues of the world. A rather eclectic mix of incidental issues, mainstream analysis and philosophical ponderings ranging from philosophy, argument, religion, political processes and modes of thought right through to Life, the Universe, and Everything.

We are basically looking at why we do what we do, and why we think what we think. If that is all too much then maybe it would be best to come back later, after you have updated your Facebook Wall, Twittered the fact that your nose is running and SMS’d two relatively unknown acquaintances – just to stay in touch. If all of those activities sound good then maybe you should stay a while, pour yourself a cup of your favourite something, and spend some time just thinking about your world. It could be that you are a victim of infobesity, or the Crackberry or some such scourge, and a little pondering might be the medicine you need.

We are here to share thoughts and challenge ideas, leaving our preconceptions and biases back in the school pencil-cases where we found them. A little bit of passion is welcomed, anarchy is mildly tolerated, and the Site Creator relishes the role of Virtual Dictator. All-in-all, it’s more a work in progress…

A progress that has lingered on the web for over 9 years now, in one form or another. Old posts are most likely just as relevant as new posts. The issues under consideration are not transient, and you are welcome to trawl through those older notes to see if this statement holds true.

 

Feel free to send a note with any feedback…

Your Name (required). Mind you, this is the internet, so the chances are that you don't really want to use that, do you? That's ok, we are all strangers here. Feel free to use a pretend name.

Your words of wisdom - please include the phrase "i am not spam but if i am then i am very clever spam". The Incredibly Clever Automatic Spam Checker will sometimes be a little over-zealous, so it's helpful if you make it clear that you are a human being and that you exist... Actually, if you can do that then we'll post it to the site, 'cause that'd rank you right up there with Descartes or Nietzsche, wouldn't it..?
