The prolonged absence that has led to the neglect of my blog has several personal reasons which would be considered nothing but excuses to the unattached reader. Apart from an admission of pure laziness the problem of having what I feel to be worthy content has been the principle  reason of my neglect. Of course, my entry must provide some evidence to the contrary and I'm happy to justify this assumption.

I was just listening to a podcast on the internet which discussed the idea of the mental universe. The speakers were arguing that Idealism can be justified through quantum mechanics. Unfortunately, the argument was rather slow developing, but what really inspired me was the thought of how important it is to recognise the nature of the mental universe: essentially life.

What I hope to accomplish, at an allowable pace which will not bore any (if any) readers, is to explain why we need to emphasise the nature of the mental universe. Life is the greatest complexity of forces in the universe that is continually being exerted against entropy: the idea that when you leave your coffee on the table it will obviously get colder. Energy naturally disperses, but life amasses energy into creation to the extent that we can all look, feel and reflect upon the nature of the universe. This capacity is what evolution has developed into humanity. A real wonder that needs to be understood and appreciated for the benefit of all life.
