The Equations of Life Series Explained

Maths. Most think it scary, but it truly is the language of everything, including life. In this series of posts I aim to break the world and our interactions with it and each other down into the most simplistic equations possible.

Each post will have within it a very simple equation, so simple that if you can add 2+2 then you can understand these equations, and each post will be aimed at creating a greater understanding of ourselves, from why we do what we do, to why we want what we want and much more.

My belief is that by gaining a greater understanding of ourselves and the world, that we all can live a happy life. Happy reading to all who read.


Why Opposites Attract

Opposites attract for the simple reason that opposites attracting is massively beneficial on many many levels. It benefits us as individuals, it benefits children we have, it benefits society, so much more. For example, imagine somebody who is really good at sourcing water but terrible at finding food, and that person gets with somebody who has identical traits. They would not have no trouble finding water, but they would most probably eventually starve to death. On the flip side, imagine … Continue reading Why Opposites Attract

The Power of Oversight – If You Want to Help Make the World a Safer Place This Is What You Need to Know

There is one common trend that every person who’s ever committed a crime or act evil of any size has in common, and that is that they gained too much power and had not enough oversight to stop them from abusing it. In this post I emphasise just how important it is to understand this. Continue reading The Power of Oversight – If You Want to Help Make the World a Safer Place This Is What You Need to Know

Why Equal Dependency Is the Path to True Freedom, Not Independence

Logic says that independence is the path to freedom, but is that true or is in fact equal dependency the true provider of freedom? In this piece David Graham argues just that and explains why it is beneficial to aspire for equal dependency rather than independence because only equal dependency can give true freedom. Continue reading Why Equal Dependency Is the Path to True Freedom, Not Independence

How to Avoid Bad Ideas

How many times has something at first seemed like a great idea only for it to prove in hindsight to have been a terrible idea, I would like to bet the majority of people who read this will have experience of this. It seems to be an inherently human trait that the majority of our ideas turn out to be rubbish, the question is why and how can we stop having so many rubbish ideas and replace them with good … Continue reading How to Avoid Bad Ideas

This Is Success and How You Achieve It

Success, what is it and how do you achieve it? Today I am going to look at both those questions, but firstly as ever with the Equations of Life Series, I start with an equation: Quantifying what success is for you + fighting to achieve it = success Success is hard to come by, that is what most people say. But in fact most people are wrong, success is not hard to come by it is just hard to define … Continue reading This Is Success and How You Achieve It

How to Use Your Past to Predict Your Future

Being able to see the future is an extremely handy tool, but how do you do it?
