Met geruststellen zijn we sinds de oertijd bezig. De vroegst overgeleverde verhalen draaien om troosten of verklaren. Waar de wereld vandaan komt bijvoorbeeld, of dat onweer niet zozeer een doodeng en grillig natuurverschijnsel is, maar gewoon een moodswing van de dondergod. Dat als je maar goed en vooral volgens de regels leeft, je niets zal overkomen.

The Missing Pages of Laurent Binet’s HHhH - The Millions
The Missing Pages of Laurent Binet’s HHhH - The Millions
“Inventing a character in order to understand historical facts is like fabricating evidence. Or rather, it’s like planting false proof at a crime scene where the floor is already strewn with incriminating evidence.”

This is a terrible review but it does get one thing right : Saoirse Ronan is brilliant. The scene on the beach is completely hearbreaking.

Perception and the Real
Perception and the Real
If our evolutionary heritage in its development of consciousness limited its capacities to survival and propagation of the species, then much of the so-called ‘super-natural’ world of the noumenal is neither super nor beyond us. We are immersed in a cosmos that our brain and body for the most part filter out, exclude from access what we did not need as a species to survive in jungles, deserts, mountains, etc.

Perception and the Real
Maureen Guinness, the late Marchioness of Dufferin and Ava, was a vacuous snob whose idea of fun was to turn up at the houses of society hostesses wearing a comedy penis nose, a fart machine carefully hidden between her legs.

hmm it might be me but i think that's pretty funny! from Rachel Cooke's review in the Observer of Why Not Say What Happened? A book by Ivana Lowell about life inside the Guinness clan.

The rise of platonic life partnerships
This really is a grotesquely stupid little article but ok I don't think this website's number one concern is critiquing patriarchy or capitlaism.

Trinny Woodall: I became addicted to cocaine because I had a total lack of confidence. I was very insecure and unappealing. I finally stopped because I didn’t recognise myself. I was so detached from life; I had no feelings. That is a scary thing.

I don’t do Botox to look young. I do it not to look tired. If I look in the mirror and feel awake and alert, I will be awake and alert. If I look exhausted, I feel it. I want to feel full of energy – that’s all it is.
