The Purpose of Higher Thinking

(Act 4:4, lines 38-41) William Shakespeare poses some of the most thought provoking questions on the meaning of life throughout Hamlet. As a young man, Hamlet faces many of the same questions youths still face today. Though very few teenagers today are royalty or are attempting to avenge their fathers’ murders, still it is relatively easy to relate to the questions Hamlet ponders. Similar to Hamlet, I often wonder why humans were given the ability of complex thinking.

Youtube. Consensus reality. Consensus reality[1][2] is that which is generally agreed to be reality, based on a consensus view.

Consensus reality

The appeal to consensus arises from the fact that humans do not fully understand or agree upon the nature of knowledge or ontology, often making it uncertain what is real, given the vast inconsistencies between individual subjectivities.[3][4] We can, however, seek to obtain some form of consensus, with others, of what is real. We can use this consensus as a pragmatic guide, either on the assumption that it seems to approximate some kind of valid reality, or simply because it is more "practical" than perceived alternatives. Consensus reality therefore refers to the agreed-upon concepts of reality which people in the world, or a culture or group, believe are real (or treat as real), usually based upon their common experiences as they believe them to be; anyone who does not agree with these is sometimes stated to be "in effect... living in a different world.

Lifestyle (sociology)

Location is important even within an urban scope. The nature of the neighborhood in which a person resides affects the set of lifestyles available to that person due to differences between various neighborhoods' degrees of affluence and proximity to natural and cultural environments. For example, in areas within a close proximity to the sea, a surf culture or lifestyle is often present. A lifestyle typically reflects an individual's attitudes, way of life, values, or world view. Lifestyle may include views on politics, religion, health, intimacy, and more. More interestingly, a healthy or unhealthy lifestyle will most likely be transmitted across generations. 3 Principles For Robust Gains.

Wim is able to accomplish these feats with ease through the use of ‘The Wim Hof Method‘ — a breathing technique that allows you to control the autonomous systems of the body.

The Right Kind of Visualization. Is what you see, really what you get?

The Right Kind of Visualization

There are some wild claims out there for the power of visualisation. Things like: if you can imagine it, then it will come to you. Of course there’s always been a huge market for telling people things they want to hear, even if it’s complete rubbish. Still, visualisation can certainly be important in reaching goals. Much research has been conducted in athletics which shows the power of visualisation. There is now hardly a sport left that doesn’t have psychologists telling players to visualise their performance.
