If You Could Be Best Friends With A Celebrity, Who Would It Be?
I don’t pay much attention to celebrity gossip. Today’s celebrities don’t really interest me and to be honest most of the young ones I have no clue who they are anyway. I’d like to have met Katharine Hepburn I think she’d have been interesting to hang out with for an evening.
What is, or should be, the main purpose of law?
The law should protect the innocent and punish or deter wrongdoing. It’s main purpose ought to be to provide structure to society.
Do You Care About Reviews?
I always read reviews of products I am interested in buying as research. One of my favourite sources is Choice, a magazine put out by a consumer advocacy group. Their reviews are always unbiased. I read buyers comments too although I am aware that some may be paid reviews. I would rather rely on an honest review than the words of a salesperson.
I sometimes read book and movie reviews but I will usually make up my own mind about whether I want to read/watch.
However, if someone was reviewing my work I probably wouldn’t want to read it.
Is the ‘mind’ different to the ‘brain’? If so, in what ways?
I was not sure what is meant by this. We talk about people being “brainy” or not using their brain if they act foolishly. We also say someone is out of their mind. So I guess you could use those words interchangeably.
However, according to neuroscientists the mind and the brain are not the same thing. One article I read said this:
The mind uses the brain, and the brain responds to the mind. The mind also changes the brain. People choose their actions—their brains do not force them to do anything. Yes, there would be no conscious experience without the brain, but experience cannot be reduced to the brain’s actions.https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/difference-between-mind-and-brain-neuroscientist/
Overall how sunny is your nature? (Optimistic)?
I have been an optimist for most of my life but these days it is harder than it used to be.
