Cold comparison of Soul destiny under Easter and Western traditions

Cold Comparison

Communists abolished the religion in 1917 and advanced a new world vision.  Here, in this cold emotionless article I want to compare several world religions (including communism) in just one aspect – origin and destiny of soul.   Several generations of Soviet people were living and dying without promise of afterlife. How did they do it?   Let us compare how various concepts of afterlife can work from purely statistical point of view?   Communist Faith   Under Communist regime, you work and die for the benefit of next generations, and your soul (you thoughts and your deeds) will be carried forward in the hearts and minds on the next generations. …

Aug 20 MON – Firenze (Day 3) – Collodi

Firenze - Via del Proconsolo

  We woke up at 6:45, and were out on the streets at 07:07.  The heat is gone. What a relief from afternoon heat.  It is nice and breezy on the streets at this hour.  We wanted to see all major Firenze sites one more times before the crowds. We saw 3 young (most likely German) tourists next to the wall of the Duomo.  They were just waking up and gathering their colorful sleeping gear.  They travel on a very low budget, and no one bothered them sleeping in front of the Duomo. Quickly we reached Piazza della Signoria and realized that arches here (Loggia dei Lanzi) remind us arches on Odeonsplatz in Munich,…

07-11 First picture of the day

  July 3, Wednesday Around 13:30 on Wednesday things seemed slow enough at work that I saw an opportunity to make an early start for the White Mountains.  I quickly gathered all the things, and departed by 15:00. Around 15:20 a phone call caught me on route 128, and I made a stop on a Rest Area to connect to work and do some fixes.  The connection was unusually slow, and I couldn’t get close to the windows (for better signal) because of the sun.  Around 16:46 I was done, traffic became a solid menace by this time.  Instead of braving the traffic for several hours on the way to New Hampshire, I decided to…

Office-2010-Error

You are an expert.  You are almost a god. You can manipulate complex installs and difficult projects.  This time you just want to test Office 2010, and be done with it. […This article is quickly growing.  There are surprisingly many nuances behind behind this simple facade  ——>] You quickly create a fresh Windows instance, by copying 3 or 4 directories from some backup storage, and you boot into it. Now, you are trying to install a fresh Office 2010 on a fresh install of Windows (any version including XP, Win7 and W2K8 R2).

Uffizi - Guide for the Blind

  Today we are going to Uffizi and Academia.  We woke up at 08:00, and quickly finish with our breakfast (no fresh fruits though).  We started out to visit our car around 09:30.  On the way there, we drank coffee and ate watermelon (€6.40).  We crossed the river through the picturesque Ponte Vecchio. We even found another house were Galileo apparently lived or was experimenting with gravitation on Costa San Giorgio.  Kids!  Do not experiment with gravitation at home.  You might end up as Galileo did.   We were searching a short cut on other side of Arno river, and all of a sudden we found another Galileo house and museum…

Размышления о жизни, об обществе и о справедливости

 . . . забыл зачем живу Я забыл, зачем живу.  Кажется, просто, чтобы ездить на vacation? Я полностью clueless, что происходит в моей жизни, и что будет происходить. Самое главное – это в окошечке жизни различать отдельные прекрасные моменты, которые все равно исчезают навечно.  Для чего же тогда их различать? Почти наверняка, чтобы не было безумно жаль . . . прошедшего.  Лежу в своей кровати, всё есть, всё хорошо и отлично.  Окружен книгами и занятиями, но что-то проскакивает на заднем плане, как тень от животного, что-то я упускаю делать самое главное. То ли книгу какую-то упускаю, то ли что-то увидеть и понять не могу.  Что-то очень очевидное, но не поддающееся словам.…

How to limit a WordPress plugin to just one page?

How to limit a plugin to just one page, or a few pages?  How to load a plugin only where you need it? I encountered a problem, where plugin Contact Form 7, if activated, would slow down entire WordPress site to a crawl.  Contact Form 7 is great, and I want to continue to use it.  However, this one plugin makes every page load to the count of 13 or 14.  Without it, every page loads to the count of 2 or 3.  What can I do? The solution turns out to be a very simple one.  Simply disable entire plugin unless you are loading certain pages that require this plugin.…
