Love and hate in science.

Have you ever loved or hated someone? One must be very pleasant, and the other must be very unpleasant. You definitely want the unpleasant ones to be thrown away or forgotten. But both still remain in your memory.

Religious teachings and motivators certainly give advice to forget things that are not good. Maybe you consider it a normative suggestion. In philosophical viewpoint there are those who say that love and hate are thin difference. Love can be hateful, and vice versa. Buddhist philosophy says that everything in the world is temporary. But I want to try from a scientific viewpoint to explain this philosophical view.

Love and hate have in common, both are equally unforgettable memories in our brain. But over time, both of them will gradually fade after we become senile, as the brain cells that save the memories of both love and hate will going death one by one. At this stage you already do not have a sense of love and hate anymore. You are slowly return to Alpha from Omega. Of course this is just my personal view that has not been scientifically tested. However that's life! How about you?

  1. I believe in balance. Not to go overboard with either love or hate but be equanimous in our relationships will be my advice.

    1. What is the "balance" philosophy do you mean in the context of this post?

  2. I am not being philosophical. I am being practical. Love and both are Reactions to stimuli. By using the gap between stimulus and response to decide how to respond, we lead a balanced life without getting carried away by either positive or negative reactions.

    1. It seems you tend to choose the middle path.
      However, the truth is not always in the middle. It could be that the truth is on the left or right.

  3. A simple but meaningful explanation to reach awareness that everything will surely roll by. No matter how hard it is.
    I don't think that you use microscopic cells as an analogy.

Kartini's Day and Indonesian women

Recently on April 21 the Indonesian nation commemorate Kartini's Day. Actually Kartini's Day is similar to Mother's Day (celebrated in Indonesia on December 22) or International Women's Day. Perhaps to understand Mother's Day you need to understand a person in your life called Mother, and for the International Women's Day and Kartini's Day perhaps you need to understand the person in your life called wife or sister. If you are underestimating women then firstly you need to look at your mother. Am I wrong?

In short: That is all for women. In wider meaning: That is how these special Day to further raise the awareness of Indonesian society or even the world - especially the women themselves - about women rights, their struggle for equality, and their important role in various spheres of life. This is also an occasion for Indonesian women to review how far their struggle get acknowledgment especially from the point of view of Indonesian traditional society who…

VETO VS DEMOCRACY

In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

VETO
According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in favor.

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privileg…

Capital Punishment Against Bali Bombers

Last night, when I watching TV, I be attracted with the news about capital punishment against the main performers of the Bali Bombings incident. According to "TV One" (one of the Indonesian TV broadcasting), on October 24, 2008 (means today), the Indonesian attorney general will announce the execution plan for them. Faced that announcement, their family will put forward the re-consideration through their lawyer team next week.

Yes, according to the law, they were guilty and must be punished. But the capital punishment is equivalent with splitting the soul from the body. My big question is "Whether these world must have the capital punishment?" I don't know!

Motherland Angry

I made powerful weapon helpless.
I made superpower speechless.
I changed the war news to humanity.
I show you wealth and power is useless.

I am Motherland already tired.
Let fresh air blow.
Let clear water flow.
Let earth be pure again.

Allow me a short break.
Let humans in a cage for a while.
Air, earth, water, sky, just fine without you.
If I am Motherland have recovered, remember !
You are guest here, not my lord.

Don't forget COVID-19 teachings.

Signs of COVID-19

Humans panic. Handshake, hug, cheek kissing now replaced with shoe or elbow touch. Be suspicious of each other, maintain a distance. Economy collapse. Stock market fall out. Marriage & death ceremony abolished. Mother give birth in trouble. Hospital & medical overwhelmed. Worried, afraid, sad, hit humans. The cause?? Gosh... just a weak micro creature, a virus, which is pressed by finger surely dead but its strength is incredible.

Mecca, Medina, Vatican, Wailing Wall, Buddhist Monastery, Hindu Temple, and almost all worship places around the world are restricted from humans. Billions of people retreat into their cage. The world feels lonely, silent, empty. Maybe God is angry. As if want to say : "Go away you humans, no need to look for me anymore".

Maybe God is getting bored seeing our behavior, which is always wrong and proud of sin. Or nature began to be reluctant to befriend us. Hopefully in this quarantine period, human can aware and apologize to Him.

Thank you …
