Whilst in Jakarta approximately 10 years ago i was lucky enough to meet writer, speaker, and Leader, Kelly Poulas.
Kelly is a dynamic, practical go getter who demands full-in commitment and she get’s it from most people since they know that whoever gets in the mix with Kelly are likely in for a leadership learning roller coaster resulting in becoming a more advanced knowledgeable leader themselves.

Trans-Humanism – it’s a cover-up
I have just come across the movement and philosophy of trans-humanism. The transhumanists main aim is to overcome mortality… to go beyond human, extend life beyond death, etc.

Why Are We Here?
If we believe that we were brought into this world by chance and randomness then the answer to the question – why are we here?.. is what?

If this is the case then the question “how can i be a good person?” or “how can you be a good person?” has Continue reading “Here By Chance Or Design”
Hey folks… welcome to my Straight Talk web blog.
Not everyone is going to agree with what i say in this site BUT then you have the right to start your own weblog and voice your own opinion… right?
However, maybe you should take a non-stance approach and see things from another’s point of view. In fact that is exactly how i have formed these opinions … by listening to others with wider experience than me and with an attitude of: Continue reading “Hello, welcome to straight talk..”
