The whole furore of Christmas and talking to my friend left me with a great sense of depletion. I recently found employment and I even worked in the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve. While I was working I thought about my friend, who told me that she did not want any medication and preferred to live with just her memories.

British Muslims would be far better off if only they invest in knowledge and turn much of their energy into reading, learning, thinking, reflecting and reasoning. Revisiting the history of a pluralist Spain would be useful, as that would help them in comparing their better past with the thorny present.

Should we fear the speed of technological progress? We decided to not fear but embrace it. As fear is an emotion based on the disability to predict the outcome of a particular situation, we choose to become better at predicting and finding ways to assist us in making the right decision.

So, please, indulge me as I hitherto invent a new genre of literary criticism and thrust it upon your unwitting and uninterested eyes. I call it a "pre-review review". I hear your teeth grind as you call me a "wally" and slap the back of your own neck in the hope you'll hit that "off-button" sweet-spot. Why not simply call it a "preview", like a sensible person?

As humans we may see, imagine, and dream of other paths, other realities, but we can't take them. Our reality is a path of all things and the logic between them, we are not the dream creators, the world makers, but rather a cog, a pretty cog. A cog that likes cake.
