Thoughts on: convictions, faith and hope
Convictions In the article "Thoughts on: frustration, worries and fear" the tone was very somber. At the same time it had a wide range and many reactions. I don't know whether I should be happy or dismayed by this. It is probably always the negative, scandalous and polemical things that people read, share and feel. … Thoughts on: convictions, faith and hope weiterlesen
Thoughts on: frustration, worries and fear
Frustration When I look at the ongoing debate around the Corona measures, I am deeply frustrated. The social discourse is deadlocked. The opinion fronts are set and move no longer. The "mask" has become an established symbol of social attitudes, while the discussion around "Corona" has long since ceased to revolve around the dangerousness of … Thoughts on: frustration, worries and fear weiterlesen
Latest findings on corona measures – A look into the world of science
"Science says..." In this article I would like to refer to a study that indirectly examined the effectiveness of political measures that are not explicitly medical in nature. But first a few words about the world of science: The reliability of "science" We often hear "science says this" or "scientists say that" to give a … Latest findings on corona measures – A look into the world of science weiterlesen

War of Information – Between „Fake News“ and „True News“
"These days we are experiencing what I would call "information warfare". Two parties, in this case the well-known opponents "mainstream journalism" and "alternative media", have relatively opposing views on one topic, in this case "Corona", and are engaged in a lively exchange of blows, which, however, is more like the fight "David against Goliath" than "King Kong against Godzilla"."
Fears, Concerns, Dangers – How the Corona-Pandemic is changing the World
"This contribution is intended as a warning. By no means do I want to join in the hysteria and panic that we encounter every day in the media. Nevertheless, I believe that there are some dangerous tendencies which already exist and which could become increasingly serious or arise in the near future."
Day 3 of „The curfew“ – Hopes
"First I wanted to write an article in which I express both fears and hopes. However, I decided to first only formulate my hopes. Why? Because confusion, fear and powerlessness are anyway created and encouraged by the 24-hour Corona livestream on all channels.
Therefore, this contribution shall be animated by a few positive thoughts."
„The New Radicalism“ – Foreword
Foreword The Necessity of "New Radicalism" We, the human family, are caught in a dilemma. The problems of the 21st century are now known to most people. A few centuries ago, hunger, war and poverty were the main causes of human suffering. Today these are mostly just symptoms of a deeper problem. There is more … „The New Radicalism“ – Foreword weiterlesen
divide et impera: „Right“ and „Left“
A difficult chapter For a long time, I've been avoiding a post like this. I thought we as a society had almost overcome thinking in left and right. Probably I felt too comfortable in my own bubble. This polar thinking still determines our political debates. Therefore I have no other choice but to dedicate a … divide et impera: „Right“ and „Left“ weiterlesen
The Human Being, the Consciousness, the Ghost and the Self
Indivisible separateness The terms mentioned in the heading are difficult to separate. Probably many would have their difficulties here and there, which is quite understandable. In this article I would like to briefly introduce my personal definition of these four elements. They are closely intertwined, but have to be distinguished from each other to understand … The Human Being, the Consciousness, the Ghost and the Self weiterlesen
I. Where do we come from?
The agonizing question of the origin of the universe The beginning. The origin. The starting point. The source. The seed. The singularity. Whatever one may call the beginning, the meaning is no less than that this is the reason for the existence of all being. Because of this the importance of the question is probably … I. Where do we come from? weiterlesen
Italien Journey Part 4
"One may say in favour of a written and oral tradition what one wants, but in very few cases it is sufficient, for it cannot communicate the actual character of any being, not even in spiritual things. But once one has taken a firm look, one may read and listen with pleasure, for this follows … Italien Journey Part 4 weiterlesen
Italian Journey Part 3
Day 10 - The Mother of Student Cities "In the evening I finally rescued myself from this old, venerable city, from the crowd, which can walk, gawk, buy and do their business in the vaulted arcades, which can be seen almost all over the streets, sheltered from sun and weather." - Goethe, Bologna, 18. October … Italian Journey Part 3 weiterlesen
Italian Journey Part 2
Day 1 - The journey begins! "Early three o'clock I stole myself from Karlsbad, because otherwise I would not have been let go. The society, which liked to celebrate the twenty-eighth of August, my birthday, in a very friendly way, probably acquired the right to hold me by doing so. I threw myself all alone, … Italian Journey Part 2 weiterlesen
Italian Journey Part 1

A school-leaver's fright, divine poet, unrivalled role model and epochal guide to world literature. Anyone who is interested in german literature of the 17th and 18th centuries, anyone who studies German and/or … Italian Journey Part 1 weiterlesen
