Why do we like (some) stories?

Just these last days I was struck by this question. Why do we like stories? A question so simply formulated and so hard to answer. I’ll just try and write this article, which, in the end, is written to make you think by yourself about the question and possible answers. As everything is relative this […]

Mental exercise: construct an idea

The concept of “idea” is as abstract as the idea itself, therefore I wanted to write “world” or “story” instead of “idea” in the title, but as you see, if you can construct both, and more, the fact is that you’re building an idea. But how are you doing such a thing? You are not, […]

I’m […]

RSA Animate. Interesting, explanatory videos.

I haven’t been so “awake” these days to study for the SAT, TOEFL and Venezuelan universities, read about C and Python programming, watch MIT classes on iTunes U and playing Inotia3 on my iPad to also think enough to write articles for the blog every three days as I decided months ago… But I’m trying […]

Philosophizing… For good.

We people tend to live our lives in one of two ways. Either we care a lot of what’s happening somewhere else, or we care just about what’s happening around. But the truth is we’re always doing something, thinking on doing things and not thinking farther than that. Writers, artists and creativity workers around the […]
