    Values are arbitrary, not logical and I guess that any idea can be cobbled to fit inside of an ideology if enough of it is whittled away to shape it to the hole. Any ideology taken to it's natural conclusion becomes a twisted husk of it's own intentions (at least that's what I think).

    That would offend him though I am tempted to point out that plants 'scream' in their own chemical language when they die.

    That was surprisingly fun to record and produce. Don't often have an excuse to mess around with my stereo mic or vocal compressors.

    Every Scorpio is really just a Virgo. Virgo is love. Virgo is life.

    Bali is more of a paradise compared to even the most tranquil site in M'sia.

    I've tried meditation, but my mind is so active it's soooo so hard.

    I've thought about drugs recently. I may have to start looking into that.

    Yes, a negative effect is common, as he stated: "synapses that fire together - wire together" for good or bad. Alcohol, cocaine and even fatty foods create pathways that last a lifetime (unfortunately). Fortunately, refocusing on other activities can rewire the brain for better habits, rendering even the dark effects ultimately hackable (or at least work-around-able).

    I quite enjoyed the ideas in the book, especially the idea that the map becomes the territory when it comes to the brain controlling the body. The mind creates a version of the body and uses that version instead of the actual body, we don't realize this because we have our limbs but if one is changed in some way, we can notice that what we think of as 'our limb' is actually just our brain's image/created interpretation of a limb. I also found the explanation for synesthesia fascinating. It implies we can train our senses in yet undiscovered senses (perhaps even lost ones) that humans haven't appeared as part of our culture. Fascinating ideas with many implications!

    Yes he does mention it, maybe he has a vested interest but naive as I am, I assumed that he merely found it remarkable enough write about. :shrug:

    Curious: Which product do you think the author was 'pushing'? I must have missed that aspect.

    Yeah I think biofeedback may be what it was. It sounds familiar.

    I quit because it was hell, and it was hell because, well, I'm not sure how to describe it, but if you can imagine "mental pain." It's like physical pain, but you have no clue where it's located, other than that it might be in your head. In addition, all my senses were super heightened like after being woken up from a deep nap when you're still super tired, but even more so. I can't think, I can't eat, I can't do anything I just want to go to sleep. So we ended up having to do it right before bed after everybody else was asleep, but my mom was the only person who knew how to do it, and that was really stressful on her, and sometimes I wouldn't even be tired enough to sleep, so I'd be sort of awake lying there with everything in the world pissing me off. Combined with the mental pain, it was not fun.

    Now, did it help? Well yeah I've kind of explained that. It helped a lot. But it sucked.
