I am considering whether to attend this discussion:

Roman Krznaric: The Vanishing Art of Seizing the Day

So, what are we going learn about and debate this time?

Five very different ways humankind has discovered over the centuries to seize the day - which we urgently need to revive.

Roman Krznaric is a favourite at the group. And he's back to update us on his latest research on living without regrets - by embracing carpe diem in five ways:

• opportunity

• hedonism

• presence

• spontaneity

• politics


Roman's talk

Q&A (the question with the most interest will be what we debate after the break)

Group debate (we'll break into groups of six or so)


Roman Krznaric is a social philosopher whose books, including Empathy, The Wonderbox and How to Find Fulfilling Work, have been published in more than 20 languages.  He is the founder of the world’s first Empathy Museum and of the digital Empathy Library. He is also a founding faculty member of The School of Life and on the faculty of Year Here.

The applications could be endless.. I will be trying these at home.

Where have they been all my life.. well, for the last few years at least

feel like my back is broken... it isn't, but it might as well be.. I don't like this pain.. never had it before, so I don't know why I've acquired it this time round.

Magnesium spray works on such pain, but I don't like the false sense of security that the reprieve brings, and so I use it sparingly/once a month at the very most.

I think you will find that it is not hatred of a single country. Rather of the West in general
Both in terms of what it has done in Iraq and in Syria..

...more like what it has done throughout history in general.. ruining nations and civilisations.. like kicking over sandcastles at the beach because they are too sensational, then exercising the concept known as culture-stealing.. and so it goes on ad infinitum.. reason why a Nubian temple looks like later Greco-Roman architecture.

The signing up process sounds like it could be longwinded, but I could be wrong... will check out the site.

Why does more energy not mean more time for one's-self? :-\

From Pub Med Journals: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/articles/19812695/

Full Article here: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0007334

Might be the same content as supplied by the Ukranian geneticist, but I haven't checked.. it may well be his research in the journal.

...and if you were going for animinity,

Or you can post as guest,  I don't believe you have to sign in to post on this site.
...I said autonomy, not anonymity.

...I don't think the guest function is working.

There is no moderation over at Philosophy Now only two robot mods who do no moderating at all. Despite
this the forum manages to function relatively well. There is hardly anyone there from ILP. The two forums
have virtually different members. You may think the magazine dull however the forum is entirely separate

I have heard mention of moderation over there, but I think it is more stealth than visible.. swoop in, swoop out.. job done.

There are plenty of names and posting styles I recognise, but what I do like is the large contingency of Brits.. and therefore relevant topics.. over there, but time restraints prohibits me from engaging more than I already have been.

So many people I know submit article after article to PN.. until one of them gets published. It seems to be the pinnacle of achievement for the hard-working and driven educated man or woman.

I have not confused this site with no other, but you seem to be confusing me as a moderator from elsewhere and me as a new member of this site. Can the two please be unentwined and seen as the separate entities that they are, because they are.

I did not sign up here to engage in threads like this, so I won't be further..

So much for me attempting to be under the radar.. like I am on PhilosophyNow.

So much for everyone is welcome here.. delete my account if you must.

Your view of me is odd and very off, but it's yours to have, and I would rather be afforded the luxury to post autonomously like everyone else.. and not be singled out.
