Maslow's hierarchy of needs Maslow's hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid with the more basic needs at the bottom[1] Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review.[2] Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow used the terms "physiological", "safety", "belongingness" and "love", "esteem", "self-actualization", and "self-transcendence" to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow's theory was fully expressed in his 1954 book Motivation and Personality.[5] The hierarchy remains a very popular framework in sociology research, management training[6] and secondary and higher psychology instruction. Hierarchy Physiological needs Safety needs Safety and Security needs include:

The Life Cycle of a Democratic Society (and Where We Are in That Cycle) 5th December 2015 By Peter Paul Parker Guest Writer for Wake Up World “Everything has a life cycle, and there is actually a life cycle for countries. We live in a world where the very word democracy is losing its meaning. The Life Cycle of a Nation Step one. Step two. Step three. Step four. Step five. Step six. Step seven. Step eight. Step nine. Democracy is dead, long live democracy. When you look at the state of the world today, do you think that perhaps people way smarter than me, or dare I say smarter than Dr. “Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. And I also beg you to listen to US President John F. Undoubtedly, this conspiracy is still happening today, as we tiptoe into totalitarianism. But, as the power-mongers increase their push toward totalitarianism, we are beginning to pull in the other. Democracy is dead. So the answer to all this is you. What is it going to take for you to stand up and say “No more”? Be part of the rebellion.

Borderline personality disorder The disorder is recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Because a personality disorder is a pervasive, enduring, and inflexible pattern of maladaptive inner experiences and pathological behavior, there is a general reluctance to diagnose personality disorders before adolescence or early adulthood.[5] However, some emphasize that without early treatment the symptoms may worsen.[6] There is an ongoing debate about the terminology of this disorder, especially the suitability of the word "borderline".[7][8] The ICD-10 manual refers to the disorder as Emotionally unstable personality disorder and has similar diagnostic criteria. Signs and symptoms[edit] Symptoms include: Emotions[edit] While people with BPD feel joy intensely, they are especially prone to dysphoria, or feelings of mental and emotional distress. Behavior[edit] Self-harm and suicide[edit] Self-harming or suicidal behavior is one of the core diagnostic criteria in the DSM IV-TR. Sense of self[edit]

35 Inspiring Quotes from Albert Einstein & Always Well Within - StumbleUpon Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955), the famous theoretical physicist, developed the theory of relativity and is considered the father of modern physics. The nuclear physicist Robert Oppenheimer shared his impressions of Einstein by saying, “He was almost wholly without sophistication and wholly without worldliness . . . There was always with him a wonderful purity at once childlike and profoundly stubborn.” Due to his brilliance Einstein was often called upon to offer opinions on topics beyond the realm of physics; thus the wide range of inspired quotations. “Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.” “Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.” “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” “Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.”

The "Thanksgiving Genocide" Narrative - Veiled anti-White Propaganda Compiled by Red Ice Creations A lot has been written in the last 30 years in an effort to demonize the settlers, pioneers and pilgrims who came to America, to make a new life for themselves, people who were escaping horrible conditions and religious persecution. This is a look at the "Thanksgiving genocide" narrative and the absurdity around how White Europeans are portrayed as blood lusting devils, who apparently had all the time in the world hunting and killing Indians for pleasure, as opposed to the struggle to survive in a new land. Remember, during their first winter, 50% of them died from disease, starvation and cold. The exaggerations and caricatures have become more and more extreme over the years. "The pilgrims (who did not even call themselves pilgrims) did not come here seeking religious freedom; they already had that in Holland. Who knew there were politically correct Indians? Oh, the HORROR! The first story is from: sail1620.org: I disagree. [...] snip [...] Be VERY afraid! Mr.

Google’s Driver-less Car and Morality Google’s driver-less cars are already street-legal in three states, California, Florida, and Nevada, and some day similar devices may not just be possible but mandatory. Eventually (though not yet) automated vehicles will be able to drive better, and more safely than you can; no drinking, no distraction, better reflexes, and better awareness (via networking) of other vehicles. Within two or three decades the difference between automated driving and human driving will be so great you may not be legally allowed to drive your own car, and even if you are allowed, it would be immoral of you to drive, because the risk of you hurting yourself or another person will be far greater than if you allowed a machine to do the work. That moment will be significant not just because it will signal the end of one more human niche, but because it will signal the beginning of another: the era in which it will no longer be optional for machines to have ethical systems. But what should we do about it?

An Essay by Einstein -- The World As I See It "How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people -- first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy. "I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. "My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. "My political ideal is democracy. "This topic brings me to that worst outcrop of herd life, the military system, which I abhor... "The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.
