Change reaction

Ian Weinberg · On perusing the banter on multiple social media platforms it becomes apparent that bar some exceptions, users for the most part remain fixed in their views and ideologies.

The hateful and the cruel

Ian Weinberg · It’s everywhere. It’s at the office and even in your home. It’s beamed at you every day by the media. It’s the hateful and the cruel. In its mildest form it creates unhappiness which undermines wellness and productivity. At its worst, it kills and it maims and it threatens our su ...

A place under the sun

Ian Weinberg · Evolution is not promoted by the warm fuzzies of dripping oxytocin. Evolution is spurred by crisis, challenge and perturbation. Single-minded aggression has been the hallmark of many individuals in history who, while poorly tolerated by the sensitive masses, contributed great val ...

Bonding the free-way

Ian Weinberg · It started off as one of those perfect winter’s days in Africa. Following the early morning chill, it was warming up under a glorious blue sky. I picked up my ride to the airport. The traffic was unusually light for rush hour. I was travelling to the Buddhist Retreat Centre in th ...

An awe-full story

Ian Weinberg · I can truly say that this buzz was inspired by the many fine writers on beBee.

Writer's cramp

Ian Weinberg · Reluctantly I have to confess this problem to the beBee community. I’ve thought long and hard about this and realize that I have to get it off my chest. It concerns all of you – everyone of you with whom I’ve engaged. You see I have been diagnosed with beBee-itis. It appears that ...

The Driven

Drowning in snake oil

Ian Weinberg · They’re everywhere. At the office and at the club, in all the media and even at your place of worship – the relentless pitch of the ‘experts’!

Profiling hatred and cruelty

Ian Weinberg · The Hate and Cruelty Syndrome (HCS) is one of the more perplexing neuropathologies and one seemingly intractable to conventional modalities of intervention.

About Writers and their Neurochemistry

Ian Weinberg · Underlying who we are, what we do and how we do it, is our neurochemistry. It makes for interesting cogitation (a big word for ‘reflection’ which I only recently learned) to analyse writers and their writing, based on two neurochemicals, dopamine and oxytocin. · Dopamine is the s ...

A Curious Life

Ian Weinberg · Curiosity killed the cat! But that was a rare and most unfortunate occurrence in the face of what we have come to understand about curiosity.
