Escaping the matrix.
CREDENCE You are in a prison right now, in this very moment; a prison so intelligently designed that its core feature is to make sure the prisoners don't know they're imprisoned. This prison does not look to control you directly through force or strength, but rather indirectly through social and societal pressure. It's as if… Continue reading Escaping the matrix.
Since I started video logging throughout the day I have been mentioning what podcasts I have been listening to and have had so many people messaging me directly to ask what podcasts I would recommend so I thought I would write a post with my favourite podcasts. I listen to podcasts all day every day,… Continue reading Recommended Podcasts.

Food for Thought. Literally.

To be human.
Coincidences do not exist. Nothing happens by chance. Life is a string of seemingly complex synchronicities leading us from one experience to another.
