What is projectbrainsaver to me?

The society I live in uses ‘gate keepers’ to control itself. These gate keepers limit society by disallowing the passage of many whose input would be beneficial to that society.
The society, as can be seen right now, is suffering. It needs all of us to make this work.

Imagine a jigsaw. Each of us is made up from jigsaw pieces. From the beginnings of our interactions with others our own personal jigsaw pieces are put down. Some of those pieces are put into the wrong places, no matter how well meaning the intent to speed the process of growth or… whatever.
If we are unlucky we have multiple pieces hammered into the wrong places, for us, and this then sets us on an unsatisfactory roadway through life, something always feeling not quite right… but never a chance to sit down and work out what pieces were out of place and what to do to replace them and rework the knowledge trail, the story arcs, that have resulted from this hammering of wrong pieces into other place holes.
projectbrainsaver is designed to help with this.

privately. personally. without bias.

Here’s how big Gaza is in comparison to some cities around the world | SBS News.


Gaza is a Palestinian region on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Egypt on the southwest for 13 kilometres and Israel on the east and north along a 59 kilometre border.

At 360 square kilometres, Gaza is home to a population of more than 1.5 million people, including 1.1 millionPalestinian refugees.

That means there are a lot of people in a very small area. For perspective, Adelaide is 1,827 square kilometres and home to 1.2 million people. It accounts for 5.72% of Australia’s total population.

Gaza City, the largest urban centre of the strip, is reportedly the 40th most densely populated area in the world.

How does the size of Gaza compare to major cities around Australia?

Sydney, population: 4.576 million (2010)

Brisbane, population 2.043 million (2010)

Melbourne, population 4.077 million (2010)

Adelaide, population 1.203 million (2010)

Perth, population 1.696 million (2010)

Canberra, population 358,222 (2010)

What about major cities around the world?

London, population 8.308 million (2013)

New York City, population 8.405 million (2013)

Tokyo, population 13.35 million (2014)

Berlin, population 3.502 million (2012)
