    elsa with ideas Elsa with good thinking  

"It is a fact readily acknowledged, that for humans,
an idea is much more powerful than a fact."

One idea: just as ideas can close our minds, they can open them.
Ideas can help connect things or keep them apart.
They can help make sense of things - or block making sense of things.
The Idea Emporium - for good thinking.

The Idea Emporium Explores
Logical Fallacies, Fact Muslim Religion,
Proof of Life After Death,
Critical Thinking vs This Is Stupid, Animal Rights,
Gambling, Narcissism, Plus.

Ideas about The Idea Emporium
as part of the creativity emporium

- a very favorite quote -

If you bring forth what is within you,
what is within you will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you,
what is within you will destroy you.

from the gospel of Thomas (part of the gnostic gospels).
Thoughts on this.
