The Mind-Set Falsification and Ways of changing it

Mind-set falsification entails a practice that boosts intelligence, keeps cognitive bias at bay, and proves your concepts wrong. To bring some context to this, something happened in the mid-20th century. Karl Popper, a professor and philosopher got mystified by the methods and beliefs of people who proved rational and intelligent. Karl found that most of these people, and who admired Freud, Adler, and Marx, got thoroughly impressed by a myriad of points standard to their theories and how good the theories and their explanatory power. The theories seem capable of explaining every occurrence that unfolded in the respective fields to which the three individuals referred.  This article by MyPaperWriter will help you to change the mind-set. Most people tend to have confirmation bias based on the description provided. It arises when you gain some theory or perspective and interpret everything to confirm the idea. Additionally, everything else that appears to…

Betting on Rancor Fights in SWTOR

We’ve talked about betting and gambling in Star Wars before. It was present in the movies and in one way or another, it’s mentioned or referenced in most of the lore. What if you could bet on rancor fights in SWTOR like we see in the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II trailer? Honestly, it makes sense to think in terms of the Star Wars Universe. As you may recall, Jabba the Hutt kept a rancor in a dark chamber below his throne room. When Skywalker killed it, Jabba was outraged and ordered the Jedi and his friends to be publicly executed. Think of it like a high roller losing his favorite race horse. No one would be happy about that. Rancors or the bull rancor have often been part of many Star Wars games, too, often written into mini bosses or even main bosses. The look sometimes changes but…

What Does it Mean to Be a Gamer Today?

In recent years, technology has changed the way we see games and the people who play them. There was a time were a “gamer” would be looked at as a nerd who hangs out in the arcade all day, or even in the pejorative sense of someone lacking good social skills who hangs out in his parent’s basement all day on the computer.  Video games were initially looked at as child’s play, but those kids grew up and they still enjoyed the games they had grown up on. Now, there are no age, sex, race, religion or gender restrictions on video games. They are well and truly loved by people from all ages and all backgrounds, available in different languages and on different platforms.  Because games have changed so much over the years, the way we define who a “gamer” is has also changed over the years. The past three…
