MacGyver thought-waves | frequencies thought-waves by Gabriel Levy I grew up by the shores of Lake Michigan. Much later in my life I was exposed to the more gruesome power of such waves. In the short story, “The Seventh Man” Haruki Murakami describes a wave as a doorway into the “other world” that characterizes many of his stories. In the tip of the wave, as if enclosed in some kind of transparent capsule, floated K’s body, reclining on its side. I don’t know what spirituality is, but when I think of the word, I think of waves—thought waves. Because I am interested in the materiality of thought and its medium, I often ask myself: what is thought made of? Perhaps thought is like a sound wave. Certainly one medium of thought is sound waves. Sound waves are waves of pressure. Perhaps thoughts, like sound, need to travel in a medium. In former centuries physicists looked in vein for the medium in which light traveled; they called this imaginary medium aether. Perhaps thought has this dual nature too.

The Museum Of Old Techniques For almost every electronic device or oil driven machine there used to be a low-tech alternative that was powered by human muscles, water or wind. The Museum of Old Techniques aims to collect and study these historical alternatives to modern day machinery. Why, you may ask? To quote the Museum: "Evolution doesn't necessarily mean progress, what we consider to be primitive solutions are often not primitive at all". We could not have said it better ourselves. A somewhat related publication is Edward H. Knight's book contains not only early electric equipment and steam driven machinery, but also human and animal powered machines.

Mindfulness Is Not Meditation: How to Navigate Your Way to Prescence | High Existence Mindfulness is a word being thrown around a lot recently. But there seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about what it is. In this article I will show you the difference between mindfulness and meditation – and why it matters. To be mindful, in very general terms, is to be aware. Imagine this: You’re walking with a friend down a busy road, it’s the middle of winter, and there’s snow and ice, cars are flying past, and a hundred men in business suits scuttle by with coffees. Question: what does that mean to you? It means be aware of the ice, take notice of it, don’t let it escape you or you might suffer the repercussions. It’s not meditation. If there is one prerequisite to being mindful, it’s that you need to be ‘in the moment’ if you’re going to notice the goings-on around you. You can only focus on one world at a time—the one outside your head, or the one within it.Tweet This That’s the layman’s version of being mindful. There are, however, different interpretations. What is Meditation? Look:

(49) ‫My Stealthy Freedom آزادی یواشکی زنان در ایران‬ به دبستان میرفتیم. زمانی که ابراز احساسات یک دختر به معنی تبهکار بودن بود. بعد از انقلاب بود ...هر روز صبح دم در مدرسه بازدید بدنی میشدیم ...در جیبهایمان, کیف هایمان , لای کتاب ها, افکار و قلبهامان بدنبال نشانه ی از عشق بودند. یک دختر نباید احساساتی از خود بروز میداد که بر خلاف عرف جامعه بود. جامعه ای که بدست مردانی اداره میشود که زنان را مانند توده ی سیاه و یک شکل بدون احساس و فکر میخواستند و در رگهایشان انقلاب و جنگ در جریان بود. ما دختران مثل یک گله در مانتوهای مدرسه یک شکل بودیم ...قلبهای جوانمان زیر مانتوها میتپید اما اسرارمان را فقط بین دوستان درجه یک فاش میکردیم. Seeing these young girls singing… seeing their body language and expression of love means that there is hope. Watching this video made me warm inside my soul because I see that the love inside 1000´s girls like me didn’t die and went on through the hearts of Persian girls ... We have a long journey to achieve gender equality in our society, but there is hope. #آزادی‌یواشکی #mystealthyfreedom ادامه ...
