The new Blockchain ⛓️

Many things in the universe start and end, like a ruler, or a stick, like a stone. But also concepts like months and seasons have initial and end dates. We can join the edges: starting and ending, start and end like in an immense chain of bytes only computers can handle.

The new trend is about this: the constantly linking in a chain, a chain of blocks, or in crypto-world, the Blockchain.

Now that the Blockchain exists, that Bitcoin exists, Ethereum, Polkadot, etc; all humans (not only Catholics being kings with technology under our service) can take advantage of it. As with many things in these modern times (pandemic and so on) we are shifting our traditional way of thinking, finding fresh and open marketplaces like the crypto-world. Even when I dislike the infinite rows of megabytes in Bitcoin’s ledger, it would be sloppy not to use cryptocurrencies, not to build NFTs.

Of course we wont use technology to become slaves of it, we will use it in a smart way 😄. The biggest tradeoff against the blockchains technologies are their ecological impacts. And when browsing about them I got astonished…

The Internet is this giant source of information –insights are just an extension to it. Anybody can post anything. Even when lying, one will always find what it is searched for. Myself too collapsed with these videos, since I care about our planet:


Fortunately we have many alternatives to save the environment, of whose I like the Algorand Blockchain. It is opensource, white label and environmental-friendly; It founder, who works at MIT made its Pure Proof of Stake algorithm, (something that drastically decreases carbon emissions, actually a similar algorithm will be in Ethereum 2, hopefully in 2022).

…I am still in the process of testing this blockchain and uploading my NFTs, so I will update this post in the coming months (if I God provides me enough health, obviously).

Abba Music returns 🎼

Abba, which is reuniting after nearly 40 years, will released a new single, “Don’t Shut Me Down”. Their new album, “Voyage,” is due on Nov. 5 and quasi-concert dates are scheduled in London in May. Though the verses of “Don’t Shut Me Down” are about a woman surprising an ex with her return, the choruses also recognize the strangeness of Abba’s reappearance: “I’m not the one you know/I’m now and then combined”.

As the music band returns to action, it can’t be expected to have the same teenagers fans, but older ones with new learnings and understandings. Returning will be different, like all returning experiences. Catholics often recur to the parable of the prodigal son (about a son that returns home after spending all his fortune). His father received him with a big hug, and even threw a party on his return. He ordered to bring him new clothes and to cook food (to sacrifice a pork). God’s response could be similar as this father’s, because God is greater than what we think.

Feeding Antibodies 🍼

Yes, vaccinated mothers are trying to give to their babies antibodies via breast milk… In the first nine months of the pandemic, around 116 million babies were born worldwide, according to UNICEF estimates. This left researchers scrambling to answer a critical question: Could the virus be transmitted through breast milk? The answer, six researchers agreed, is that newly vaccinated mothers have antibodies generated which can, indeed, be passed through breast milk. Does ‘vaccinated breast milk’ contain antibodies? Yes, study after study shows it does contain antibodies. How exactly these antibodies protect the infant from Covid is not yet clear.

Babies are in a different seat with their recently-born condition. Most adults had tagged episodes as pleasurable, fun, fast, easy, and so on… but babies haven’t done so: they are blank pages waiting to be written. They seem creative, which they are, but mostly they are new, SO new that ordinary things can be their first time, therefore having a fresh panorama.

Babies surprise me with unpredictable actions, like grabbing their toes with his fingers, or looking a dog as a weird animal. Even when crying, their sound seems beautiful to their mothers. Pretending to be a baby is not so easy though. We can try to be amazed by the rainbow, but we will look strange staring for minutes at a raining cloud 😊 hahaha

BTW I am selling the kids clothes I designed:

There is still the question: why do babies receive baptism even when are not jet responsible ❓❓ Now that I think of it, we may be babies compared to God. There should be a formal reason to this question, and here is a discussion about it. Anyway, what a bless it is to be baptized at an early age, actually. One can enjoy of the benefits of being saved since very young. One can expect heaven, for instance: a blessed life for eternity, for free! just by behaving okay.
