Love & Tolerance(i)

Over the past few years woman have been coming forward calling out men in government and the entertainment industry for past unwanted sexual encounters. This is sort of like a Women’s Lib 2.0 movement and I love it. This is a huge step for both woman and human equality. Unwanted sexual advancements on any gender is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

Perhaps this is a new way we enforce principle and judge and convict people. With the internet, which seems like it’s been with us forever, we can shame a person all over the world in just seconds. The person’s image and career have now been destroyed. Will he ever commit such a sin again? Could a robotic Jesus do the job? A single Enforcer King Robot that can plaster your name and crime on every mobile device in the world instantaneously?

Inner Power

Instinctive drive is first. Hunger, Love, pain, fear are all part of my instinctive drive. Those instincts set my thinking into action, ie I’m hungry so I’m moving to get food. Emotions inspire my thinking ie I’m angrily walking to get food.

At its basic level, the human goal is to always satisfy my instinctive drive, in short, avoid pain and death and seek what is pleasant. One challenge posed to the human being is dealing with the unpleasant. How we handle such situations is the power that feeds the emotion behind them.

We are charged as rational human beings, bodies of intelligence, to be thoughtful in all our actions and this requires one to be fully conscious of himself and his mission to stay alive. One could very well say that all which we do springs from our desire or our fear.

There is power behind my emotions. It is my inner power that spark my emotion which in turn has power of its own. Power is returned to its source once the emotion is exhausted and I am at rest.

The inspiration of my conduct is the inner power which is love. Love is the inspiration for the God idea. We don’t want to stop loving so we don’t want to die and for that we need a supernatural power that will restore us after we have died. God didn’t give me love. I was born with it. The difference today is I know how to use it.

Open mind ecstasy

Arnold talked about the pump of weight lifting being equal to that of an orgasm, so when he would lift he was often in total ecstasy.

I’m here to tell you that an open mind is also like having a constant orgasm. As new data comes in I no longer filter it and just absorb it and wonder about it. As my brain processes the incoming data it becomes overjoyed with the new knowledge it has been given and I feel amazing. Try an open mind.

North Korea

If North Korea launched a nuclear attack, the death toll would be costly: perhaps as bad as 2.1 million deaths in Tokyo and Seoul alone.

In the event of an “unthinkable” escalation, casualties in the East Asian capitals of key American allies would be catastrophic, including as many as 7.7 million injuries, according to a new report from 38 North, a North Korea analysis group based at Johns Hopkins University’s U.S.-Korea Institute.

Since 2011, North Korea has carried out 98 ballistic missile tests and six underground nuclear tests overall. The most recent, on Sept. 3, clocked in around 120 kilotons and North Korea was quick to claim it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. The tests have also revealed the isolated state’s increasing technical sophistication: on July 4 and July 28, North Korean state media said it had tested intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of reaching the mainland U.S.

The report offers hypothetical scenarios based on the assumption that North Korea has a nuclear arsenal of some 20-25 warheads. The warheads are estimated to range from 15 kilotons — about the size of the “Little Boy” bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, killing more than 200,000 — to 250 kilotons — the estimated strength of a thermonuclear weapon. The report suggests that were North Korea to launch its entire arsenal against Tokyo (population 37.9 million) and Seoul (24.1 million), casualties in each city could reach as high as 3.8 million.

The report cautions that most nuclear weapons systems don’t have 100% reliability, and America’s allies have defenses — South Korea has deployed the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Air Defense (THAAD) system despite the initial opposition of new South Korean President Moon Jae-in, while Japan plans to install an Aegis Ashore Ballistic Missile defense system. But Tokyo and Seoul are far more densely populated than they were during World War II or the Korean War (1950-1953), and the latter is in reach of North Korea’s conventional weapons, including artillery, meaning a devastating death toll in any all-out conflict would be certain, according to 38 North.

Nirvana

when I tell you I have reached nirvana I mean:

For all the experiences I feel, rather than becoming [insert_adjective_here] and judging it as good, bad, right or wrong, I can watch the emotion travelling as it wants through my body without becoming ensnared in a story about what it might mean before it actually happens.

 

Did someone say multi-task?

In short, the brain does not multi-task. It context-switches. Imagine two stacks. A and B. Each stack contains 10 cards with an instruction on them. If we were to multi-task we could execute instructions A1 and B1 at the same time. When we context-switch, we can only execute A1 and only when finished can we then execute B1.

It should be easy to see that multi-tasking is much faster than context-switching yet our brains operate so fast that we think we’re multi-tasking. Imagine if our brains actually could multi-task. Guess what? It’s coming. It’s coming in the form of the digital world.

Brain Surgery(k)

You can make your brain think time is going slowly by doing new things.

Ever wished you didn’t find yourself saying “Where does the time go!” every June when you realize the year is half-over? This is a neat trick that relates to how our brains perceive time. Once you know how it works, you can trick your brain into thinking time is moving more slowly.

Essentially, our brains take a whole bunch of information from our senses and organize it in a way that makes sense to us, before we ever perceive it. So what we think is our sense of time is actually just a whole bunch of information presented to us in a particular way, as determined by our brains:

When our brains receive new information, it doesn’t necessarily come in the proper order. This information needs to be reorganized and presented to us in a form we understand. When familiar information is processed, this doesn’t take much time at all. New information, however, is a bit slower and makes time feel elongated.

Even stranger, it isn’t just a single area of the brain that controls our time perception—it’s done by a whole bunch of brain areas, unlike our common five senses, which can each be pinpointed to a single, specific area.

how our brain works, how our brains work, senses and the brain

When we receive lots of new information, it takes our brains a while to process it all. The longer this processing takes, the longer that period of time feels:

When we’re in life-threatening situations, for instance, “we remember the time as longer because we record more of the experience. Life-threatening experiences make us really pay attention, but we don’t gain superhuman powers of perception.”

The same thing happens when we hear enjoyable music, because “greater attention leads to perception of a longer period of time.”

Conversely, if your brain doesn’t have to process lots of new information, time seems to move faster, so the same amount of time will actually feel shorter than it would otherwise. This happens when you take in lots of information that’s familiar, because you’ve processed it before. Your brain doesn’t have to work very hard, so it processes time faster.
