Transcendence: The Simple Consciousness Uploading Paradox The solution is actually pretty simple and straightforward: ensure that consciousness is never lost. This will no doubt ignite a philosophical debate, and rightly so- if I'm under anesthesia, I'm still me when I wake up, right? Or am I? I contend that you are. 7 Times When You Should Just Say Thank You, But Don't I don’t say “Thank You” as often as I should and I doubt I’m the only one. In fact, I’m starting to believe that “Thank You” is the most under-appreciated and under-used phrase on the planet. It is appropriate in nearly any situation and it is a better response than most of the things we say.

Vrai brevet pour réalité virtuelle Parmi la multitude de demandes de brevets portant le nom d’Apple publiées ce jour, l’une d’entre elles attire plus particulièrement mon attention. Portant le titre "THREE DIMENSIONAL NAVIGATION USING DETERMINISTIC MOVEMENT OF AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE", cette demande déposée le 28 janvier 2009 protège la navigation dans un modèle en 3 dimensions à l’aide de la détection de mouvements. Apple propose l’exemple suivant: An electronic device can load and provide an initial display of a three-dimensional model (e.g., of an environment or of an object). As the user moves the electronic device, motion-sensing components, positioning circuitry, and other components can detect the device movement and adjust the displayed portion of the three-dimensional model to reflect the movement of the device. By walking with the device in the user’s real environment, a user can virtually navigate a representation of a three-dimensional environment.

The Pirahã are an indigenous people, numbering around 700, living along the banks of the Maici River in the jungle of northwest Brazil. Their language, also called Pirahã, is so unusual in so many ways that it was profiled in 2007 in a 12,000-word piece in the New Yorker by John Colapinto, who wrote: Mike Vuolo is a radio and podcast producer and the host of Lexicon Valley. Unrelated to any other extant tongue, and based on just eight consonants and three vowels, Pirahã has one of the simplest sound systems known. Yet it possesses such a complex array of tones, stresses, and syllable lengths that its speakers can dispense with their vowels and consonants altogether and sing, hum, or whistle conversations.
A Simple Weekly Mindfulness Practice: Keep a Gratitude Journal Time required 15 minutes per day, at least once per week for at least two weeks. Studies suggest that writing in a gratitude journal three times per week might actually have a greater impact on our happiness than journaling every day. How to do it True Blue Stands Out in an Earthy Crowd According to who explore the complex interplay of color, mood and behavior, blue’s basic emotional valence is calmness and open-endedness, in contrast to the aggressive specificity associated with red. Blue is sea and sky, a pocket-size vacation. In a study that appeared in the journal Perceptual & Motor Skills, researchers at Aichi University in Japan found that subjects who performed a lengthy video game exercise while sitting next to a blue partition reported feeling less fatigued and claustrophobic, and displayed a more regular pattern, than did people who sat by red or yellow partitions. In the journal Science, researchers at the University of British Columbia described their study of how computer screen color affected participants’ ability to solve either creative problems — for example, determining the word that best unifies the terms “shelf,” “read” and “end” (answer: book) — or detail-oriented tasks like copy editing. Not so to those that would dine upon us. Dr.
Godwin's law Mike Godwin (2010) Godwin's law (or Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies) is an Internet adage asserting that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1" — that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism. Promulgated by American attorney and author Mike Godwin in 1990, Godwin's Law originally referred, specifically, to Usenet newsgroup discussions. It is now applied to any threaded online discussion, such as Internet forums, chat rooms and blog comment threads, as well as to speeches, articles and other rhetoric. In 2012, "Godwin's Law" became an entry in the third edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. Corollaries and usage

Ex-Workers' Collective Governments promise rights, but they can only take liberties. The idea of rights implies a central power to grant and guard them. Yet anything the state is powerful enough to guarantee, it is powerful enough to take away; empowering government to solve one problem only opens the door for it to create more problems. And governments do not generate power out of thin air—that’s our power that they wield, which we can employ far more effectively without the Rube Goldberg machine of representation.
The Repeated Bout Effect: If Nothing Changes, Nothing Is Going to Change If you have ever taken a few weeks off from exercise and then completed a strenuous workout, you may know what I’m about to say. That first workout back from a long break can be tough, but it’s usually the soreness that follows a few days later that is really brutal. For example, if you do a squat workout after a few weeks off, it can hurt to simply sit in a chair or climb the stairs later that week. One of the quickest ways to resolve this soreness is very counterintuitive: Squat again. If I’m feeling sore a few days after a squat workout, then doing some light reps is often the quickest way to recover from the soreness.
