Network Ownership

"Think Critically" with BENjamin-NEWton's Network © Ben Huot 1998-Present.

Website designs and all content not marked with a specific license copyrighted, from 1998-Present. I am the webmaster of this network, which includes 7 different, but related websites.

These websites all serve different purposes or audiences, but all share one thing in common: they are all created by me and are about me and my mission/ministry. I am the webmaster, so that I not only create everything on these websites, but also have designed and done all the technical things, to make this site work well, on a wide range of the most popular devices.

I have worked on all this for 20 years now, while understanding that I would never make any money off of it, as my niche is too small.

Greetings

Welcome, visiting human, pet, toy, or automated software

My stuffed toy bear Fred says I don't have Schizophrenia, but he does

Thanks to God for the Good Parts of my Website, Books, Designs, and Graphics

Dealing with Google

Over Reliance on Search

Another factor is that most people seem, to think, that the only way, to access the Internet, is through Google, so it is likely, that some people will find my site once and then never find it again. Believe it or not, Google sets arbitrary and constantly changing rules, many of which is never discloses, so I can never be sure people will find me, when searching for me, or my website.

If I want people to find me, when searching for Benjamin-Newton, I have to compete with all the other Benjamin Newton's, who have websites, and only one of us can be on top, no matter how different we are. This is after I have done all the Google recommended website Search Engine Optimization techniques, which took months and required me, to update every page, of my website, 6-8 times and make huge file and folder organizational changes.

Does Google Like Me?

There are also things, that Google doesn't like you doing, and will mark you down, or even take you out of Google's search completely for. This includes having duplicate versions, of the same file, or even just the same content, even if it is on different sites and even if you didn't put it there, or asked for it to be taken down. Another thing, that can get you marked down is being "too optimized," meaning that Google thinks that, because you are getting higher results, than they think you should, you must be cheating and so they mark you down, or take you out of their search results, for this.

If you ever get hacked, Google puts a big warning up, to everyone, that says you have a virus, on your site and you have to clean out the infection, test that it is gone, and then resubmit the site, to Google, to add back. Google also ranks you much higher, for domains (web addresses), that were purchased a longer time ago and you get higher results, for joining their social network. Google also allows people and companies, to pay, to get higher search results, which is extremely expensive and unpredictable, too, as you pay per time someone see it.

Google Owns the Internet

Google also has zero support, for anything - not even email. Google thinks it can solve any problem, by changing their search code, and refuse to have things checked, by actual people. This allows very obvious and ridiculous mistakes, to happen, as computers are not very smart. Google is a monopoly and basically owns the Internet. You have to follow their rules, if you want anyone, to be able, to get to your website.

All the ads you see, on the Internet, are mostly Google ones and Google is the only one making any money, off them (because of their size). Google also uses all its free services, to harvest personal information, about you like: your address, your phone number, your income, your age, your occupation, the company you work for, and anything else it can find about you, or anyone else also you mention, in any of your searches, emails, maps, Chrome web browser, Android phone and Android apps, or any other Google product you use. They sell this information, to advertisers.

Google uses public information, gathered from following each link, to each website and they will do things, like show your images in their search, separate from your web pages and put your books online, without telling you, and you have to tell them, to remove it. Google's goal is to put every piece of information online, even if it is private or illegal.

Google's main competition is Facebook, as they cannot index it, because the pages are not public, and Apple's Siri and Apple Maps. Neither one of these allow Google, to collect information, about you and they are the only companies big enough, to do this, on enough scale, to be a threat.

Other Internet Issues

Internet Not Dependable

In many parts of the world, even in America, the power goes down very infrequently, but the Internet goes down much easier. In many parts of the world, it is common, to have electricity go out, for days at a time. And Internet speeds may be fast in Europe, but even in the rural US, not everyone can even get broadband, even if they can afford it. Many people are now accessing most of their Internet based information, via cell phone networks and free WiFi, which is definitely not everywhere, even in the US. This makes having my books available, when you are not on the Internet, essential.

Use Your Bookmarks

Some other ways, to alleviate this, would be, to remember Benjamin-Newton.com, or bookmark my website, on all the devices you use, to access the Internet. For those using Apple devices, my three major sites have their own icons, optimized, for every resolution of iPad, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, and iPhone.

All you have to do is "Add to Home Screen," where you add bookmarks, in Mobile Safari. You will then find an icon, with my logo, on your device, which you can rearrange, just like any App icon.

Website Availability

The final major reason, to download my books, all in one, is that my website might be down, or I may not be able, to afford to keep it going, after I die, or end up too mentally, or physically sick, to be able to make sure my website services are paid, on time. If you miss the payment, for you domain name, after the date is due, you will usually lose your domain name, someone else will buy it, and then they will sell it back to you, for hundreds or thousands of dollars.

The more likely situation is that I will move the content, to another place, that you might find harder, to access, or I may take down content, that I think is not important, but that you might still want access to.

Website Longevity and Migration

I have been at this same location, online, since 2004, but, before that, I changed my web location and name of my website frequently, as I had less money then and was looking, for the best deal I could get, on the Internet and the shortest and easiest name, before I could afford, to buy a domain name. The reason why I call it Benjamin-Newton is that that is my first and middle name and the only thing I knew I wouldn't change is my name. Huot is my last name, but few people know how to spell it.

Most people do not know this, but the average website only stays online, about 18 months, on average and, so you can never count on things being there, when you get back. That is why should always download anything important, the first time you see it, from the Internet, right away.

ADD/ADHD Young People

Website Description

Benjamin-Newton Overview: the place for most of my content on web design and graphics. I have actual code, design advice, and my color and logo choices (that I learned in 20 years of web design). I have a very unique approach which I guarantee you will not find anything like this anywhere and it is all available at no cost.

I also have my introductions to my basic theology, advanced theology, and introductions about myself (including information about my personal experiences with having Schizophrenia for 20 years) and other people, on this website.

I also have most my pictures here, including world religion and art with pictures and nature photography in air brush and watercolor. Most other pictures are at the Benjamin-Newton Oregon website cows graphics and abstract drawings sections

Want to Ever See this Website Again?

  • Always Reload or Refresh each of my pages, when Returning to any part, of any of my websites, after your first visit, as I Update my websites very frequently (often multiple times a day).
  • Unfortunately, web browsers save the version of the webpage, as it was, when you first visited it, and shows this this Old version to you, upon every following visit, until you hit Reload or Refresh.
  • Also remember, to Bookmark my website, right now, as you might find it hard, to Find my website again.
  • Unfortunately, computers in general and Search engines, in particular, are not as capable, as they seem, which means that my website cannot be reliably found, if you are depending on Google or Bing.
  • No one can get their website reliably featured on Google, for appropriate search terms, no matter how much they pay, or how big a brand they have.
  • Google constantly changes and will never release the criteria they use, to determine who get featured first, on the search results, for a given set of keywords.
  • Even typing in the name of my website, in your location/search bar, without the exact syntax, will give you unpredictable results.
  • You can add my website, as an icon, on your Apple mobile device (iPad, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPhone, or iPod Touch only), with all your app icons, like just another app.
  • Click on the first icon to the left of the address bar on your Apple device, where you add bookmarks, and choose "Add to Home Screen."

Website Compatibility

Software Requirements

My regular websites work well on any Windows, Mac, or Linux laptop or desktop running Chrome or Firefox, a Chromebook, or any Apple device (iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch) that is running iOS 11 or later. If this website does not work on your browser or device, try the simpler/mobile version.

Javascript Settings

My websites work fine without Javascript or plugins enabled, or with ads or scripts blocked (my websites have no third party content or ads nor do they make use of any plugins). To get a simpler version of most of my websites, try "Disabling Javascript". On my website, you won't be abe to adjust the website appearance or have it read aloud, with Javascript disabled.

Consequences

Disabling Javascript will both increase the security of your computer or device and get rid of annoying things like malware, ads, pop-ups, and comment sections. It will also make your computer or device browser run much faster and use many times less of your monthly quota, from your cell phone plan. On the other hand, with many popular sites, you won't be able to use them at all, with this setting, so change it back afterwards.

Network Overview

Network Introduction

Confused about the world today? Want a simple, direct, and clear explanation? Read my books. My writing is like poetry meets encyclopedia. You will find nothing like this online or in print. All of this writing is available at no cost. I have a steady income and a lot of time, as well as an unusual perspective. This website network and these books are my way of trying to make the world a better place.

There are a lot of other (non-fiction) things I write about, as well, like what it is like to have Schizophrenia, secrets to my website design, and a completely different political and religious point of view. My point of view is partially based on my experience enlisted in the military and later living with Schizophrenia for over 15 years. It is also heavily influenced by my decades long (and continuing) study of world religions and world history (after ancient history and before modern times).

I follow my theories with practical advice and do what I recommend others do. You can make the world a better place. Just remember to think for yourself (this is what studying philosophy should teach you). Learn from my writings and experience, but come to your own conclusions. I am likely wrong on a lot of things, as are even the greatest thinkers, throughout history. I write what I believe, but you need to make your own choices, based on your own experience and your own understanding of yourself and the world.

I teach the exact opposite of the medieval philosophy of Thomas Aquinas. Instead of understanding God, to the limits of reason and then using faith, to reach beyond that, I believe that faith is the primary means with which we should understand God and the use of reason, to explain the Bible and God, is a secondary and subordinate pursuit. It is dangerous, to base your faith on reason, because someone could then change your mind, just because they are better at arguing.

One of the things people often assume is that arguments are all based on reason, and to understand how I explain things, it is important to understand that I am not trying to be rational. I do not believe that you will change your views, even if I was able to form a superior reasonable argument for it. The basis for my faith is not rational either. If you think pursuing truth without using reason is nonsense, then you probably won't agree with what I have to say. Yes, I actually believe that and yes I do see some humor in that as well.

Start reading here today.

Opening Thoughts

Exactly the same but completely different. Slightly worse, but many times better.

For those things we know are true, but we thought were impossible to put into words. Always be kind and work hard. Learn as much as possible and be creative in solving problems. Over all, in making important and morally significant decisions, think long term. The best you can do in life is follow your conscience.

On Certainty in Life

I am sure about everything everyone else doesn't understand, but I am confused about everything everyone else is certain of. Everything you have seen and heard is wrong. What we were taught was true in school is irrelevant. The things we think are really important are very unimportant and the things that we think aren't very important are the most important of all.

About Me

I am a former soldier (army) and have been living independently with Schizophrenia for over 15 years. I live in Eugene, Oregon (United States) I have spent much of this time writing a number of books on various non-fiction topics based on my experiences, what I have read, and the insights I have had over the last (almost) 20 years.

I have also designed these Benjamin-Newton websites from scratch, with all my own code and graphics and updated them daily for that entire time, as well. I code directly to CSS in a text editor and avoid anything that slows the site down or causes unnecessary security problems.

Want to Think Critically?

I am a Christian cynic and pessimist in that I believe in everything in the Bible, but nothing else except Murphy's Law (anything that can go wrong will). I consider this positive, because when anything goes well in any aspect of my working with other people doing their jobs, I am pleasantly surprised.

Explore my website and learn to think critically about everything (history, religion, psychology, ethics, design, technology, and disaster survival). Be sure to be critical of everything you read, including my ideas.
