    The Yogi, weighing a mere 94 pounds (43 kilos), has been able to survive on only two bananas and a mere glass of milk with a few drops of water twice a day for the last 28 years.

    Further evidence of Banana power, and the greatness of Great Flying Banana. Jk. I have to sleep soon, I may watch it tomorrow. BTW, does it reveals something about qi?

    Logical deduction can only tell us information already hidden in the set of premises. It can test the consistency of the premises...but it works based on the premises on the supposition that the premises are true. How to test those premises if they are outside experience? Deduction does not tells something beyond experience if the premises are under experience...so is informations derived from it...thats why there is that trilemma of logic or something. In my comic, I tried to find certain truths that can be instantly verifiable under experience. And Experience itself is that. Proof is in the pudding. Consciousness\Awareness is the certain truth and also the Subject and fundament of subjective world following the semantics. Be it subjective or objective everything under experience is arguable a truth is some sense, but consciousness being the SUBJECT of subjectivity itself can't be hallucination or imagination or anything, Thus the ultimate truth preached by the mystics...is the name of 'Self'. Everything else can be a mental conjuration or dream or reality depending on what one even defines as real. A distorted perception is also an actual perception. Everything percieved is information (sensations, thoughts, feelings aka the 6 senses (6th one being thoughts, imaginations and feelings) flowing under awareness...under experience..things just is...we know nothing but see patterns still. Do you exist or not? I am simply living under suppositions. Human or Ghosts, same thing for me, both amuses me as much. Paranormal or normal, same stuff, normal is just a miracle one is accustomed to. I haven't yet however been in good contact with LCS and the other sides, and before that I choose not to believe in the premises of the books and subjective experiences of other people. I would rather like to personally explore myself and see if I can be certain of something more or not. Thus what I wrote remained rather mundane...does not speaks much about NPR or other stuffs. I am in no one's side. Neither PMR or NPR. It is the same for me, simply informations, I wanted certainty. I am too stupid for science...but the basic explanations of science are not something that feeds my curosity though in some aspect I am interested, but not being the one to experiment it is hard to believe just from reading a book be it science or religion, I trust no one. After so many betrayals, I can't trust even myself.

    World Wide Web makes IT mundane?
    I don't understand. Makes what and how? Are you talking about the pillowsofysuicides link that I gave you. OK then.

    Ego trips everywhere. There is a documentary "Flight from Death" which explains our psychology behind attachment to stories and the violent actions due to over-attachement and all that...

    It is from a silly book I tried to write. There are various version of this: https://philosophysuicides.wordpress.com/
    But recently I tried to write a better version, that lies inbetween the concise and the detailed version....but I am still not satisfied by it. My English lacks a certain flow. If you want I can upload the pdf of the book.

    Funny enough, I did read that post on the thread. I guess my correlation skills weren't functioning.

    Actually I never knew the origin of the term. It was taught to me as a technique for quickly bonding with someone and getting them to quickly be comfortable enough to open up. If you use it in combination with mimicking someone's body language it can be pretty powerful. I've also heard it used as a sales technique.

    I would consider making a thread, lots of ex alcoholics who can talk about that. Don't recall any threads about the liver, tbh.

    If you can afford it, a very good, gentle yoga DVD and better 'teacher' (been doing it for 30 years or more) is Peggy Cappy. The DVD, 'the one' to get is called Yoga For the Rest of Us.

    It is low-key; no background anything but what, one plant. And only four students (she teaches in New England), two older, including one who clearly has rheumatoid arthritis (bad) in her hands, and everyone is just average, no jumping around, chubby people, and one guy also just average.

    The camera does not jump around, no music to annoy or distract. And Peggy's style is truly encouraging and soothing, not fake in any way.

    Best part to start with, if you get it is the 'Interview' where you get to see her students, and one if near 100, another is I believe in his 90s and bent so far forward he cannot look up, and they talk about what the class means to, does for them.

    Yoga For the Rest of Us.

    She has others but they got marketed for young and healthier, not nearly as good--props aren't sturdy, the whole production went 'too professional' as often happens.

    I have the DVD, and I made a 3-ring binder in which I put yoga poses I can do when I am ill, more ill, and I take out the ones I can't do as needed, keep sheet protectors on them: It's a simple way to organize.

    Gromit, my husband, took photos of me doing various poses, then when he got too busy, I copied people from 'Images', and even sketched a few so I would know what to do:

    You can custom make a routine that way.

    Lots of people go to classes; I am very introverted, so even if I were healthy, 'when' I was doing yoga twice a day (for 10 years) I did not go to a gym or the Y for that; I did it on my own mat, at home, first thing in the morning, right after the 9-to5 I was working...

    I would be in worse shape if not for the yoga; a chiropractor said that is why he hardly ever had to adjust me--just after surgeries and injuries... It was, he said, the yoga that kept me out of his office, and odd, but he respected that, me.

    I miss him. He was gentle; is in San Diego. I have not found a replacement chiropractor here, and I can't afford one, now, anyway:

    Medical bills, as you know, can get out of hand, and fast, when you are 'that' ill, and chronically, too.

    In person allows for better, 'No, what I meant', and Wait a minute, I just dropped ice down my blouse, ohshit! kind of talk, and laughter... that helps us talk 'real' and 'helpful' and more relaxed, and in a deeper way, which is how I like to do it, when I can.

    I do it professionally, and truly, no 'tone', I cannot relate to 'hobbies', which is the way I read a-vocationally. I don't think my bio includes... Oh, you know what? I sometimes get in so much pain I find simple tasks to do, and I may have filled out the 'hobby' field, and put writing in there? I'm going to see because if I did, that was a major goof!

    ADDITION: I went and put 'Interests are:...' I don't know if that helps because I don't do scholarly reading or yoga as 'hobbies' either.

    I think of 'hobbies' as 'crafting' and 'stamp collecting', stuff people do to relax, and only to relax. But that's me... Maybe people who 'scrapbook' get more out of it than 'hobby' applies to me, you know like the word 'hobby horse' is a nursery word, implying 'childish', so it's something one does when not being serious; not working.

    Ah, me... See, how you'd have to be one-on-one in person: Body language, smiles, my laughing at myself, and Gromit being such a great host: All helps understanding, even putting up with parts of my 'serious-ness.'

    I don't anthropomorphize The Source either, so that would be Ground of Being. In person, though, I'd get into it more deeply, and all sorts of 'ands' and 'but well then how...' come up, which is stimulating, but the either/or? I pass. And I think you did a good job with that post of not doing an either/or jig.

    Oh, yeah, my writing--the published, as well as not: Same reason, and for those who 'listen in' (online) or read (hard copy). It's worth it: Thinking aloud, and sharing; or thinking and then rethinking and sharing: online or on paper. Yup.

    Damn nice job of talking shop about my position on Ground of Being (GOD) because that either/or of the OP didn't make me do anything but shake my head, and start to walk away; glad I stayed, and now I will 'Unsubscribe' because from here on it, experience has taught me, it just becomes a verbal memememe fight. Thanks for what you shared.
