10:00 am: Forum - Friends of Wisdom


3 July, 2024

Hosted by David Turnbull

A quote from the Introduction to a book called "The Human Condition" by Hannah Arendt 
"What I propose in the following is a reconsideration of the human condition from the vantage point of our newest experiences and our most recent fears. This, obviously, is a matter of thought, and thoughtlessness - the heedless recklessness or hopeless confusion or complacent repetition of “truths” which have become trivial and empty - seems to me among the outstanding characteristics of our time. What I propose, therefore, is very simple: it is nothing more than to think what we are doing ( p.5)."
I would like to take this quotation, very explicitly, as our overarching theme. The aim of our group is to articulate thoughts that exemplify having thought long and hard about topics that have been rendered trivial and empty, either by the media or in everyday life. The way we will do this is to start by writing down some of these thoughts.
What I propose for the group is that each of us bring along a page of around 300 words, on any topic you like, so long as it shows that you are thinking. This might be a synopsis of a potentially much longer piece, or an actual piece you have already written.
What I want us to investigate are topics that are hard. This may mean hard even to put into words. You may feel like you are up against "the limits of my language" (Wittgenstein). So this group will be a challenge.
The role of each of us in the group will be to ask questions. By doing this it may stimulate more thinking and promote a philosophical conversation amongst ourselves.

10:00 am: A Zoom seminar - Technology available to support independent living. How do I make my home a Smart Home.


17 July, 2024

There are a bewildering number of smart devices available that can do just about anything in your home - yes, even the cooking and cleaning! Besides the well known actions such as turning the lights, radio, TV, air conditioning/heater on or off on a schedule or by voice command, you can also do the same with a vacuum cleaner, coffee machine, blinds, doors, security cameras, even a lawn mower! You can buy a fridge that can show you a video on how to cook what's inside and even do the shopping for you!!! Then there are smart air fryers and even a smart Webber barbecue! The list is endless.

This seminar by U3A Victoria will explain what is available to support independent living by making life easier, and how to put it all together.
