Review on “Les Thanatonautes-Bernard werber”

The book is a story of a group of people who want to explore what it’s death exactly, so they started experiment under the supervision of the president of the state who became interested in the subject after have lived a near death experience,The group of scientist, start the journey and they arrived finally to discover the death-land. The book tells stories about the changes happened in the life of the members of the group what they have learned and the changes affected the whole world after the exploration of the death-land and its impact.

Honestly, I didn’t like the book, it wasn’t impressive, he made it so long.
That were a lot of irrelevant events and information, the science fiction incorporation weren’t successful, because what he was talking about, wasn’t even science.
He made the death world so materialistic, well, I can say that maybe he wants us to conclude that what it’s meant to be hidden from us, we should keep it hidden.
I can extract two or three main ideas, that drew my attention:
1- people always make things wrong.As soon as people get into the after death land, they start fighting, making commerce, make it a place of profit, and so one. like if the human nature was to ruin everything, even the most sacred things such as death.
2- Knowledge is good in general, but sometimes we should keep hidden, what it’s supposed to be hidden. life was technically stoped after that the people knew the secret of reincarnation cycle. people became lazy, and they took everything like destiny, they believed that this was their fate, and they gave up on life.
3- After all, all the human beings are alike, it’s revealed from the different mythology presenting the same essences of ideas, the core of all religions and philosophies is the same, it should be something true that the ancient had known it, and we are not able to see it, because of the lifestyle we created.

Local elections

Today it’s the municipal election day, and it’s supposed to be the first free and honest municipal-election in the history of my country.
And despite of all of that, I won’t go to vote, I know that I’m supposed to stand for that right, that people and especially women, had fought for it, it’s supposed that I won’t drop my chance for changing, but like almost all Tunisians I feel disappointed.
I mean after the revolution of 2011, we hoped really for the best, we have tried to change things, to make our country a better place. but we were deceived by politicians. Life here is getting harder and harder.
I have friends from civil society, who is trying to convince us that if we don’t vote, then we cannot control or charges the people who will get the authority. Ad that even if, election is not the best way to improve the situation, but it’s all we get for now.
But for me, I say, I voted or not, we will not be able to control them anyway, we will not be able to questioning their decisions. Beside it’s already known who will win, we have two big political parties in the country one of them is already full of splits and problems and the other one is controlling the whole country since it won in the election of 2011, so basically the Islamist will win the municipal election too.
Democracy should be built, on principals, on mentality, it should be seen in the people actings and everyday life, otherwise it will be only theoretical, and kind of just a show.

We should work on the next generation, to teach them the principals of democracy, the principals of managing their public life. Well, I know that some people will tell me that we should deal with what we have now, and work for the future simultaneously.
Well, that could be true, but anyway I decided not to go.

Free-will VS Determinism

FREE-WILL VS DETERMINISM

There are different ways to look at the world :
*Either you consider that everything is determined, everything happens for a reason and no matter what you do, what it’s not meant to be, will not be.
*Or you consider that life is about decisions, and choices: there is no such thing as right or wrong decision, you make a decision basing on available information in an instant of time T, and basing on your state of mind and consciousness, and after that you have to take responsibility for what come from that.
*Or you say I make choices, according to the actual data, but I can’t control the results because it’s impossible to me to contrôl all the parameters of the equation, and you choose either to give a meaning to that result or you consider that it comes accidentally.
*Otherwise you can consider that nothing of the above is true and nothing happens for a reason, and things come all over randomly and not necessarily that it make sense at all. you are not the center of the universe, so maybe it’s not even about you in the first place.
So what would you pick up?
