Learning from Religion


A post after a long time.

I was busy with work, however have been exploring a lot of articles and thoughts online.

This is one much needed talk on how to borrow ideas from Religion for every field.


How to Think More About Sex


I recently read this book ‘How to Think More About Sex’ by Alain de Botton. I liked how the author explains everything objectively without loosing the truth about the incredible power sex has on us. 

Excerpt i like… 

Without sex, we would be dangerously invulnerable. We might believe we were not ridiculous. We wouldn’t know rejection and humiliation so intimately. We could age respectably, get used to our privileges and think we understood what was going on. We might disappear into numbers and words alone. It is sex that creates a necessary havoc in the ordinary hierarchies of power, status, money and intelligence.
