(Source: reginabrett.com) Barcode Yourself by Scott Blake Barcode Yourself is a complete, interactive experience in the series of barcode art, created using the personalized data of participants. Enter an individual's gender, weight, height, age and location, and the barcode is formed using real-world data. The individualized barcode can then be printed, mapped, scanned, even depicted on a t-shirt or coffee mug. It is in scanning a barcode that the project reveals its humor, like a banner that reads: Disclaimer! It is here, within the confines of an American obsession with "worth," in which the fun begins. The data entered into Barcode Yourself takes a topsy-turvy twist to its personalized end numbers, with the exception of the hard-data that correlates with "location," which tallies up in the Gross Domestic Product of each country. The calculation an individual's BMI based on the height and weight data reveals the health of an individual, thus those considered underweight or overweight are worth less money. More info in FAQ.
Alternate Sleep Cycles | High Existence - StumbleUpon Most people only think that there is one way to sleep: Go to sleep at night for 6-8 hours, wake up in the morning, stay awake for 16-18 hours and then repeat. Actually, that is called a monophasic sleep cycle, which is only 1 of 5 major sleep cycles that have been used successfully throughout history. The other 4 are considered polyphasic sleep cycles due to the multiple number of naps they require each day. Well the most important of every sleep cycle is the Stage 4 REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, which has been shown to provide the benefits of sleep to the brain above all other stages of sleep. This way, you still get the benefits of 8 hours of sleep without wasting all of the time it takes to get to REM cycles, resulting in a much more efficient sleep cycle. Uberman Cycle: 20 to 30 minute naps every 4 hours, resulting in 6 naps each day. Everyman Cycle: One longer “core” nap that is supplemented with several 20-30 minute naps. Dymaxion Cycle: Biphasic/Siesta Cycle: – Hang in there.
Search results for "Nietzsche" (showing 1-20 of 820 quotes) "For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Trees are sanctuaries. A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. A tree says: My strength is trust. When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening.

7 Lessons From 7 Great Minds - Global One TV Have you ever wished you could go back in time and have a conversation with one of the greatest minds in history? Well, you can’t sorry, they’re dead. Unless of course you’re clairaudient, be my guest. But for the rest of us, we can still refer to the words they left behind. Even though these great teachers have passed on, their words still live, and in them their wisdom.

The Hard Truth About How Success Really Works Many people fall prey to, “Yeah, but...” thinking. I have a friend who absolutely hates how successful his brother-in-law has become. “Oh yeah, I’d like to be doing that well,” he’ll say, “but he has very little downtime.” Another is bitter because one of his friends is extremely fit. Sound familiar? But that’s how success works. Nothing worth achieving comes without a price. The next time you consider a goal you want to achieve, decide if you really want to pursue that goal. Look around: No matter what your pursuit, plenty of people have already succeeded. If you want to start a business, don’t look at the guy down the street who only talks a good game; pick a person who has succeeded and follow her example. If you don’t have what you want, pay the price to get it. If you’re not willing to pay the price, recognize that fact and take that particular goal off your list.
