What’s this blog?

From wikipedia:

Mind over matter is a phrase popularized during the 1960s and 1970s that was originally used in reference to paranormal phenomena, especially psychokinesis.[1] However, it has also been used in reference to mind-centric spiritual and philosophic doctrines such as responsibility assumption.

Mind over matter was also Mao Zedong‘s idea that rural peasants could be “proletarianized” so they could lead the revolution and China could move from feudalism to socialism. It departs from Leninism in that the revolutionaries are peasants, instead of the urban proletariat.[3]

But my blog isn’t about either of the descriptions above.

I like this one better:

It may be said that, so far from having a materialistic tendency, the supposed introduction into the earth at successive geological periods of life — sensation, instinct, the intelligence of the higher mammalia bordering on reason, and lastly, the improvable reason of Man himself — presents us with a picture of the ever-increasing dominion of mind over matter.
— Sir Charles Lyell, 1863

Benny Handoko lives in Jakarta (and sometimes living in other places, a call of duty), Indonesia – a starter in blogging.

Welcome to my chattering mind where I write anything more than 140 characters. I have wide range of interests from politics, economic, law talk, social issue to football. But don’t expect expert analysis on those issues, I’m more jack of all trades master of none type.

My thoughts that I choose to write here – provocative or meditative ones, might be crap or insight. It’s up to you to decide.

Ps. you can find a bit of my background here.
