What’s in a Name?

“What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet”. – Juliet  Act II, Scene II Romeo and Juliet Names: they seem to be significant, defining parts of every person’s identity. Someone without a name is seen to be forsaken, without a family, either really new (a baby) or really outdatedContinue reading “What’s in a Name?”

Philosophy in Batman: Doctrines of the Dynamic Duo

Bruce’s parental authority shouldn’t be undermined for his own personal vendettas and vengeance crusades at night. Batman and Robin.

Keyly, it entails the ideology of time being non-linear and raises thoughts on the crucial nature of communication. Time: Everywhere and Always I’ve previously mentioned theContinue reading “We Come in Peace: Philosophy in Arrival”

July Issue ✍ AppleBelle Bi-Monthly Blog Bulletin

AppleBelle was my childhood nickname that I still carry with me. Love, knowledge, wisdom, temptation, joy, death, nature, rebirth, luxury: the apple is a symbol of life and all its’ mysteries. A call to awakening, a realization: a bell heralds messages and pronounces.

In our world of technological advancement and digital devices, the thought of being without one’s phone or Internet connectionContinue reading “Digital Detox”

✍Philosophy in The Flash⚡️ S2 Earth 2

Earth 1 meet Earth 2. The philosophies here implicate that with a difference in setting, the people whom one surrounds themselves with and a variation in cosmic causation, the very definition of who we are, can be redefined. The idea of the multiverse ruptured by Barry’s singularity (introduced in Season 2’s second episode), is anContinue reading “✍Philosophy in The Flash⚡️ S2 Earth 2”

Holy Minute Momentary Mind Insights! Batman

Today, it’s getting batty…and catty. It’s the sixth edition of Minute Momentary Mind Insights and as per usual, I am exploring some philosophical notions in pop culture: this time, that contained within Tim Burton’s gothic Batman Returns. The specific quote is derived from Danni DeVito’s incarnation of the Penguin: “You’re just jealous cause I’m aContinue reading “Holy Minute Momentary Mind Insights! Batman”

V for Vindication

I recently discussed 1984 in minute momentary mind insights , have a post on the Handmaid’s Tale in the works and recently just re-watched the Matrix…for the tenth time.

Our Soul Purpose: Do we have souls and what are they?

Perhaps, a soul is a sort of unique energy that we hold, that transforms (or maybe reincarnates) from one form to another? Happy Sunday! It’s a day indicative of new dawns and a new week to come…So why not get to the point and get super philosophical? As you might realise, this blog post isContinue reading “Our Soul Purpose: Do we have souls and what are they?”
