In this series, I assume the role of a reader instead of a writer, discussing articles by other writers... things I recommend.
In this edition of Suggested Reading, we begin with Meta, mega and mastery, all the good words in crypto start with M lately (weekly crypto updates), which is a compilation of some recent crypto news, written by @H3ruvim78. Not all-encompassing, but definitely worth the while to read.
Then a warning from @TruSuccessXpert: Sam Altman's Worldcoin Wants Your Eyes, Beware! The warning is about allowing anyone to scan your retina, but it really goes for all biometric information used for identification. This article is a must read for those of you who values privacy. In spite of too long paragraphs, which makes the text look massive for readers not used to heavy texts, it is well written and expresses the main idea clearly. According to the information provided, it is an article by “Predictable Future“, posted, with due permission, by @TruSuccessXpert.
An article by relatively new member @Debesh: Fiat Versus Cryptocurrencies. This is not a deep or advanced comparison, but it is clear and definitely useful for those not yet grasping what cryptocurrency is.
Those who know me, know that I would never touch Facebook, not even with a pair of tongs. However, a lot of people do, and many of them are naive as to its consequences for their privacy. I recommend you read Facebook is tracking your activities! by @Success.1.
Speaking about Facebook, take a look at their new project, Meta. @Amoryarte explains Meta and Metaverse in Facebook's New Brand, 'Meta', Launches Them Into The Metaverse.
The history of currency is related in three articles by @ChrissCrypto. The material is over 8 months old, but well worth reading. In a concise way, it covers most aspects of the topic:
@aniruddhasen recently posted The low and middle class mindset programming , which is one of the best articles the recent week. He also posted another article, Evolutionary defects in human body, which ought to be read by everyone who believes evolution to evolve perfect organisms.
"Thoughts and ideas are not phantoms, they are real things. Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm of tangible and material things."
@Olawale4967 has written a good series in 3 parts:
@Pearlkel published 2 interesting posts the last few days:
Place Of The Talking Drum, which reflects an expression of African culture: the talking drum.
Silence Is Golden, where the title is self-explanatory – and I certainly agree with what the author states there.
@Blogika claims that Natural beauty is the foundation of a happy relationship. It is really refreshing to see someone who marks her distance to the artificial ideals which are so dominating in contemporary society. But it's not only a statement of opinion, she presents a consistent basis for her opinion(s).
In The Strength of Being an Outsider (by choice), I have previously written about how I am lacking herd mentality, so I also like what @remona says in Stepping outside the Crowd - Okay or not? | Sharing my life story as an example. She found strength in stepping out of the crowd, as she expresses it.
You’re So Old! Must Be Time for You to Die. (An Opinion Piece) by @cmoneyspinner might trigger some self-reflection.
In Mirror: A portal to the other world, @Argent writes about mirrors as a portal to another world. It is fascinating with the many aspects of mirrors in human culture, just think of Snow White or how vampires are said to be without reflection in a mirror. A long time ago I published Magic Mirror on the Wall, where I discussed many aspects of mirrors, however not directly in the way @Argent brings up this subject in her article.
“What does a mirror look at?”
(Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune)
The quotation is from the 6th book in Frank Herbert's epic about “Dune”, and it serves as a bridge from mirrors to the next subject.
In another post, the same author is Presenting Alfred Hitchcock Presents, a unique series with a unique personality – the Grand Old Master of horror and suspense movies.
Dune is science fiction, so this a couple of months old article can be suitable: The History of Science Fiction by @NakamotoBch. The same author also wrote 5 Sci-Fi Books Made Into Movies Worth Seeing.
Finally 2 articles about history:
The thousand-year history of the pen by @ilias. It's quite well summing up the history of the pen, even if some years have become wrong in the text. The post is 11 months old, and the author has not logged in for a month.
