Το εργοστάσιο της ΑΓΕΤ στη Δραπετσώνα άρχισε να λειτουργεί το 1907 και δυο χρόνια αργότερα εγκαταστάθηκε εκεί το εργοστάσιο των Λιπασμάτων. Η εγκατάσταση των εργοστασίων αυτών στηρίχτηκε στη λογική ότι οι βιομηχανίες πρέπει να βρίσκονται κοντά σε λιμάνι και να διαθέτουν δική τους αποβάθρα, ώστε να μειώνεται το κόστος μεταφοράς των πρώτων υλών. Βάσει αυτής της οικονομικής θεωρίας μεταφέρθηκαν το 1911 τα ναυπηγεία του Πειραιά στον όρμο Κερατσινίου, με απόφαση του τότε υπουργού Εμμανουήλ Ρέπουλη.

Aspects of self:
    1.) Unity – despite having a wide variety of sensory experiences, you feel as if you are a whole.
    2.) Continuity – we experience a continual life.  We can track and remember our progress, which is unique.
    3.) Embodiment – the ability to discriminate “my hand” from “your hand.” However, we can also be tricked into experiencing our body from a different location.  This is also profoundly disturbed by some diseases.
    4.) Privacy – Qualia and mental life are your own, unobservable by others.  You can empathize with someone else, but you can’t physically experience what they do.
    5.) Social embedding – your interpersonal share of histories shapes your emotions and views.  There are many emotions that would make no sense without social embedding.  Such things as pride, arrogance, vanity, etc.  These are all based on social relationships, but sometimes these flow over to inanimate objects.  You get mad at computers, tree branches, the stock market, etc..  Social embedding is also the basis of religion.  The self “needs” to feel part of a social environment in which it can interact. side note to discuss: mental retardation, autism, aspbergers, introversion, etc.???
    6.) Free Will – We don’t yet know how this works, but we do know specific brain regions (supramarginal gyrus, and of course, the anterior cingulate.)  Supramarginal gyrus helps conjure up and envisage different courses of action while the anterior cingulate gives you desire.
    7.) Self-awareness – you are aware of being aware! The whole idea of consciousness!!

Fisherman’s Blues is a 1988 album by The Waterboys. The album marked a change in the sound of The Waterboys’, abandoning their earlier grandiose rock sound for a mixture of traditional Irish music, traditional Scottish music, country music, and rock and roll. Critics were divided on its release with some disappointed at the change of direction and others ranking it among The Waterboys’ best work.[3] The album was the Waterboys’ best selling album, reaching a number 13 placing on the U.K. charts on release, and 76 on the Billboard 200.

I had another walk to the old abandoned fertilizer factory in Drapetsona. here are some photos that I took using my D7200 and Tamron 18-200mm VC.

It looked like a dominating Temple of Decay.
