Too late

I had faith, lots of faith on ourselves. I mean, I used to believe we would succeed. As a species, and transform our environment. But no, we kill. But no, we destroy. But no, we transform. Good into bad, not bad into good. People are tired, mutilated by love or no love. People are not…

Running away

I had taken the bus outside Holborn station, it was a really warm day, the bus was packed. I managed to catch up with all messages on my phone, had at least 10 unread ones. After checking my inbox and replying everyone I played some jazz and put the phone in my back pocket. Half…

S(t)imulation

Our brain works in a very interesting way, it stimulates specific areas of itself by using electric impulses, exactly like a computer does. It doesn’t have a central point orchestrating everything, instead, it has many different ‘processors’ sending messages across different areas of the organ, using long and short memories to store and access information. Computers…

Unlucky

All dates are based on the Gregorian calendar. 1933-1945: Jews, Poles, Gypsies, Russians, Ukrainians, Slavs, homosexuals and the mentally handicapped are killed brutally by, firing squad, gas chambers, brutal work and Nazi Soldiers. 2121: 100 cities are home to 80% of humanity, they are sustainable as environmentalism is one of their core features. The eco-friendly village…

Personal development page

In 15 months working at Sky I built a list of things that in my opinion needed to be improved, some of them I have addressed in my team during the day-to-day, some in our retros, another ones I had to think outside the box to be able to make a difference, and I will…

Aliens

Aliens, where are you? One of my dreams is the day I wake up in the morning, and when I check the news I see that we finally managed to find life outside Earth, on another planet or moon. I hope this will happen at least until 2080, which is probably when my life will…

Lost in time

We are lost in time. Time runs too slowly for us for some things, and too fast for others. Celestial events take ages to happen. What you see now in the sky won’t change for hundreds of thousands of years. This is enough for 5,000 human consecutive lives, if we consider an average human. Did you…

O outro lado

Ser entrevistado é sempre um terror. O suor que corre pela testa ao depararmos com uma pergunta mais complicada. Aquele assunto que você sempre ignorou ou teve preguiça de estudar, pois é, ele está ali na sua frente, entre você, que está à um passo de enfartar, e o entrevistador, obsecado na ânsia de obter a resposta….

Entendendo o lugar onde vivemos

Eu sempre me perguntei as mesmas coisas desde criança. De onde viemos? O que é o universo? Como tudo começou? Eu posso dizer que eu nunca acreditei em um deus, desde pequeno eu sempre coloquei a ciência em primeiro lugar e nunca consegui acreditar em uma entidade que controla tudo. Confesso que foram tempos difíceis, todos…

Quem é você?

Tudo começou com pequenas traquinagens, pequenos objetos que mudavam de lugar ou portas que abriam ou fechavam conforme eu mudava de ambiente na casa. Um dia eu estava cozinhando, sozinho em casa, minha namorada viajando e meu gato dormindo na sala. Abaixei-me pra pegar a cebola que tinha caído no chão e ao levantar a faca que…
