I’m exploring several cohering theses in order to construct a foundation for sense-making and reasoning that builds upon a limited class of truths, and praxis motivated by that.

This past weekend was emotionally draining and I’m still reeling from the shock, but I’ve reached for the Stoic in me, as I do. This is how the Universe is. We have little control over how things turn out. We’re here for but a blink of an eye. The Universe doesn’t care.

I have a wonderful wine tasting coming up on Thursday. I was very, very lucky to get invited to a group of wine experts who arrange tastings every month. The tastings are well organised, the wines are stunning and the group is entirely wonderful. Still can’t believe my luck.

But intellectually very rewarding. I wish I had chosen as a profession and as a field of academic study. I think I would have found that gratifying. Still, I’m glad that I can now study what I find interesting, rewarding and important at my own pace and volition.

I’ve been studying two-dimensional and possible worlds semantics for quite some time; requisite for understanding the theses in David Chalmers’ Constructing the World. Most gratifying, connecting with Frege, Kripke, Stalnaker, Putnam and of course Carnap, et al. Challenging.

Nämä tuomarit eivät ansaitse mitään muuta kun koko Suomen kansan halveksunnan. Mies oli yhdynnässä 10-vuotiaan kanssa kerrostalon pihalla, raiskaussyyte kaatui

This thread shows a depressing trend. Men in academia - help your colleagues & students by calling out these creeps. We all know at least one. Let’s not accept their behaviour. Or invite them to our conferences.

Nyt joku tolkku tähän mielivaltaiseen sääntelyyn, ! Missä on järjen ääni suomalaisessa päätöksenteossa? Tällaiselle älyttömälle byrokratialle ja sääntelylle ei löydy ymmärtämystä. Ketkä ovat ne, joiden mielestä tällainen on hyvä ja kaikin puolin oikein?

Latest revelations in Austria are yet another reminder why the fight for liberal democracy, freedom and European unity is more important than ever. Please Europe, let’s not go back to the old ways. Don’t let the nationalists, fascists and populists fool you. Vote pro-EU!
