About Me:
gosh people tend to be so inspired here….

Sunt mihi divitiae, sunt et convivia laeta,
est requies dulcis… (ALCUIN: CONFLICTUS VERIS ET HIEMIS)

We have here the fundamental problem of ethics, the crux of the theory of moral conduct. What is justice? – shall we seek righteousness, or shall we seek power? – is it better to be good, or to be strong? (Will Durant: The Story of
Philosophy)
What is all about?
Jeder Mensch gilt in dieser Welt nur so viel, als wozu er
sich selbst macht.
Strebe nach Vollkommenheit, aber nicht nach dem Scheine der
Vollkommenheit und Unfehlbarkeit!
Sei aber nicht gar zu sehr ein Sklave der Meinungen andrer
von dir! Sei selbstaendig! Was kuemmert dich am Ende das
Urteil der ganzen Welt, wenn du tust, was du sollst? Und
was ist deine ganze Garderobe von Tugenden wert,
wenn du diesen Flitterputz ueber ein schwaches, niedriges
Herz haengst, um in Gesellschaften Staat damit zu machen?
Vor allen Dingen wache ueber dich, dass du nicht die innere
Zuversicht zu dir selber, das Vertrauen auf Gott, auf gute
Menschen und auf das Schicksal verlierest! (Adolph Freiherr
von Knigge: Ueber den Umgang mit Menschen)

  6. hi, i have a question why did you choose the name huehueteotl for your website, it is really good but is really intriguing why somebody decide to pick the name of the “old god”. just curiosity, anyway, nice website.

    • …and why not? there might be so many reasons: my own age, my thirst for human blood – joking. anyway, it was the Xiutecuhtli-Huehueteotl in an exhibition of meso-american art, that made the people present stick that name to me.😉

  8. Great blog! (also loved the Lisbon story.. that’s where I grew up!)

    I just started a blog a few weeks ago on human evolution, anthropology, bones, etc, and I am trying to get connected to other blogs that deal with similar topics. I came across yours and loved it, (and thereby came across many other blogs displayed on your website). I was wondering if you could check out my blog, and if you think it’s appropriate, place a link to it on your website? I have already placed a link to yours on mine, you can check if you’d like.

  9. I found here a few months ago but I lost the address and searched a lot but couldn’t remember your address. I had you in mind because your blog had the nicest and neatest selection of (useful) neuroscientific articles I have seen. (Maybe that’s because of similar subtle lines of interest.) I’m happy I found you again. Keep up the good work.
