General Earwa / [TUC Spoilers] Tolkien & Eucatastrophe
« on: December 08, 2017, 05:45:47 pm »
Alright, who is holding out? How come I've never heard this brought up in relation to Bakker's writing before.

This is just one of many, many articles I've suddenly discovered - I have previously read Tolkien's On Fairy Stories a number of times, though pre-TUC.

How come no one has ever asked Bakker a question about this?

Eucatastrophe, Discatastrophe and the destruction of the Ring

I'm in it for The Bad Batch and Life. Colossal was alright and I've heard great things about Okja.

How do we not have this thread already... did we just fold maps into the Infographic thread?

How To Be Happy - Pretty damn cool consolidation by The New York Times of tips and tricks from "Behavioral scientists." Plenty of quality links therein.

Philosophy & Science / Cognitive Bias Cheat Sheet

Cognitive bias cheat sheet - Because thinking is hard.

A must read for all Bakker fans, though Bakker himself seems to have firmly moved onto his philosophic Heuristic Neglect Theory.
