“We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral.
Una bolita se mueve sin fricción sobre un plato de sección parabólica que está girando a velocidad constante. La gravedad tira de la bolita hacia el centro con una fuerza directamente proporcional a la distancia respecto a éste. La fuerza centrífuga (o, mejor dicho, la ausencia de fuerza centrípeta) tira de la bolita hacia afuera. La conservación del momento angular cambia la velocidad angular de la bolita cuando ésta se mueve hacia dentro (acelera) y hacia afuera (frena). También puede expresarse diciendo que, para mantener su velocidad lineal, la bolita cambia su velocidad angular al variar la distancia respecto al eje.
Fuerza centrípeta (real) y fuerza centrífuga (falsa o ficticia). En la mecánica clásica o newtoniana, la fuerza centrífuga es una fuerza ficticia que aparece cuando se describe el movimiento de un cuerpo en un sistema de referencia en rotación, o equivalentemente la fuerza aparente que percibe un observador no inercial que se encuentra en un sistema de referencia giratorio. El calificativo de "centrífuga" significa que "huye del centro".

A hallucination is a perception in the absence of a stimulus which has qualities of real perception. Hallucinations are vivid, substantial, and located in external objective space. They are distinguished from the related phenomena of dreaming , which does not involve wakefulness; illusion , which involves distorted or misinterpreted real perception; imagery , which does not mimic real perception and is under voluntary control; and pseudohallucination , which does not mimic real perception, but is not under voluntary control. [ 1 ] Hallucinations also differ from " delusional perceptions", in which a correctly sensed and interpreted stimulus (i.e. a real perception) is given some additional (and typically bizarre) significance. Hallucinations can occur in any sensory modality — visual , auditory , olfactory , gustatory , tactile , proprioceptive , equilibrioceptive , nociceptive , thermoceptive and chronoceptive .
by Maria Popova “Life really begins when you have discovered that you can do anything you want.” “There is an ugliness in being paid for work one does not like,” Anaïs Nin wrote in her diary in 1941.
New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection about the year that passed and a time to set goals for the future. Should we keep doing what are we doing, or should we tackle new challenges? If you’re seven, or twelve, or twenty, it’s easy to think about new ambitions: learn Spanish, learn to paint, do a flip off your skateboard.
On the Road is a novel by American writer Jack Kerouac . On the Road is based on the travels of Kerouac and his friends across America. It is considered a defining work of the postwar Beat Generation with its protagonists living life against a backdrop of jazz , poetry , and drug use. The idea for On the Road formed during the late 1940s; it was to be Kerouac's second novel. It underwent several drafts before Kerouac completed it in April 1951. It was first published by Viking Press in 1957 .
The Town and the City is a novel by Jack Kerouac , published by Harcourt Brace in 1950. This was the first major work published by Kerouac, who later became famous for his second novel On the Road (1957). Like all of Jack Kerouac's major works, The Town and the City is essentially an autobiographical novel, though less directly so than most of his other works. The Town and the City was written in a conventional manner over a period of years, and much more novelistic license was taken with this work than after Kerouac's adoption of quickly written "spontaneous prose".
Hyperreality is used in semiotics and postmodern philosophy to describe an inability of consciousness to distinguish reality from a simulation of reality, especially in technologically advanced post-modern societies. Hyperreality is a way of characterizing what our consciousness defines as "real" in a world where a multitude of media can radically shape and filter an original event or experience. Hyperreality is seen as a condition in which what is real and what is fiction are seamlessly blended together so that there is no clear distinction between where one ends and the other begins [ 1 ] .
It is (at the time of initial writing) 12 December 2004, in Sheffield, United Kingdom. It is now getting dark quite early; but the time of sunset in the afternoon has just about reached its earliest for the season; and we should now gradually be seeing the period of daylight in the late afternoon start to increase again. But, isn't the shortest period of daylight the winter solstice, on or about the 21st or 22nd of December? Actually, it is; but what we've just been talking about is the period of daylight in the afternoon. The total period of daylight is that in the morning, before noon, plus that in the afternoon.
17 Aug 2005 @ 07:58, by Silvia Martínez Los cuencos tibetanos son muy útiles en meditación, equilibrio de chakras, limpieza de energía negativa y también para sanación. Como dicen algunos maestros Tibetanos, estos cuencos de Tibet emiten "el Sonido del Vacío", el sonido del universo manifestándose.
A lo largo de la geografía de Gaia, nuestra Madre Tierra, allí donde dirijamos la mirada, veremos que la vida posee vibración. No importa en qué cultura nos encontramos, por poco que nos esforcemos en observar, podremos comprobar que la vibración, el sonido, el ritmo o la música, están siempre presentes. Desde las campanas o los cuencos tibetanos, hasta las tribus de Australia, pasando por las cortezas de árbol del continente africano, el sonido aparece continuamente ante nuestros sentidos.
