reflections, reviews, poems...
nobody will ever read the following articles. :-)
Symbolion - my review of a great sci-fi
is a remarkable science-fiction novel written in a fresh way. It
magnificently captures the atmosphere of
the twilight of mankind. I actually read the book in one breath a year
ago, so I am writing this enthusiastic review with enough distance to
be able to compare.

Here I am
with another blog post written in English. Someone told me
that I would have had more readers if I had written it in the Czech
language. Perhaps. But I do not post articles on my blog to get as many
readers as possible. I don’t care about statistics. I simply
write for friends...
In older design (the website is in construction):
ancient Romans already knew it
read the ancient Roman texts, I realise that there is a truth in
them that people forget and then rediscover. It is known by different
names: Psychology, Democracy, Sociology – but everything has already
been put into words in the past.

you really want to live forever?
only one way to physical immortality. Not individual
immortality (we know what the way of all flesh is and sometimes certain
events remind us of this fact too well) but immortality of the genes
that formed us into what we are... We personally will never see the
23rd century, but some of our descendants will. In fact, only genes are
immortal, flowing from an unknown past, combining themselves and
creating new individuals ...

in her Digital Warriorship talks about the burden of a
cluttered digital space. So I decluttered mine - and the feeling is
great! Any property that we 'borrow' during
our lifetime will not help us in the final hour (or second) and we will
have to leave it behind on Earth and continue on alone, again.
own or not to own
can own anything, for we are born empty-handed
and we also die empty-handed. During our lifetime, we are just given
things to use for a while, but finally the loan is paid back and the
accumulated things remain deserted, in a better case scenario, to be
used by others, family members or just anonymous strangers...
(yes, another poem)
hilarious success of the previously posted English poem, I
publish another piece of my poetry. Enjoy!
of complaining about the cold weather, I will take
advantage of the pleasures it brings. I am going to build snowmen and
snow forests (as I do almost every winter anyway. It is so
much fun!). And I'll take trips into the countryside where everything
is covered in snow, everything is white.. Yes, it is beautiful!
