It Is Pointless Sweating to Get the Superfluous

In the letter IV [Letters to Lucilius], Seneca discusses the correct attitude to be taken towards life and death, because the two are indissoluble indeed. In so doing, he also tells us how to understand “possession”, directing our attention to its essential characteristic, which always implies the possibility of loss. It is not worth living as if our happiness depended on attachment to things or to life itself: on the contrary, the opposite is true, and that is that a serene life depends on the awareness of its transientness. Thus, we can live a better life in quality, without paying

How to Reduce Weight with Philosophy

Here’s how. Stimulated by a friend’s question, we start with two quotes from Diogenes: What’s the best time for dinner? “If one is rich, whenever he wants, if one is poor, when he can.” “If only it was easy to make hunger disappear by rubbing your belly as it is with sex.” You are following a diet that has greatly reduced the amount of food you can eat, now you complain that you have to abstain from eating as much food as you like and that hunger torments you. First, I ask you to look carefully at the reasons why

The Courage to Look into the Eyes of a Reptilian

By Maurizio Bisogno Conspiracy theories are innumerable or almost. This field is highly productive, and every theory always hides “something” it does not say. In essence, we can say that there are conspirators, conspiracy theorists and critics of the aforementioned approaches. The foremost common criticism of conspiracy theories perhaps is that which associates them with a collapse of rationalism. This will drag us all to the underside of the most bizarre irrationalism which may end any rational consensus on how the planet on which we live works. For critics of this type we’d be within the presence of an outbreak

What is that you are actually earning?

We continue with this article the reflection on how much you are actually earning and how to evaluate it correctly. Thousands and thousands of people, who are earning the same amount of money as you are, keep their job to survive; they fatten the bank accounts of high level managers and stockholders. As the years go by, you realize that to realize something slightly more interesting, for example to buy a new car or send your children to a good school, or buy a house, you will have to enter the debt spiral, if you are not been already caught

The true nature of the human body

If your consciousness has solidified in the body, then your reality can only be material, solid, fixed, and its laws are inevitable for you. Our body has its reasons. This body has its needs that we can not ignore. The senses are the doors to our mind. But the body functions somewhat independently from the mind. The body is itself thinking. The brain isn’t the seat of all thoughts. The thought is generated in that part of the body where is your consciousness. The body does not give you peace of mind until you have satisfied his demands. The only
