SuperWater > Water

It would be wise to replace the majority of your daily liquid intake with SuperWater, otherwise known as "Tea". Specifically Tulsi Tea, warm or chilled (up to you, just don't reheat chilled tea in a microwave cuz microwaves suck ass), and preferably with fresh ginger added in too.

The Path

The principle mistake of the untrained when embarking on a path of training is to attempt to rush the process. In the time I've spent on my path, this very mistake has led to three separate injuries that all knocked me off my path for weeks to months while they healed. I'd passionately hop back on my path when I was ready to go again, and push myself as hard as I could to regain my previous capacities. . . only to hurt something else. It took me three injuries to learn this simple lesson. If you're smart, you won't need to suffer from any.

Studying the Evolution of Adaptation: Doc Insertion, Gene Duplication, and Viral Resistance in Flies

How do animals develop natural resistance to environmental pathogens? By looking at a basic form of invertebrate, a common fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), and its' relationship to a host-specific parasitic virus, a better understanding of how the animal kingdom adapts to pathogens can be gained.

Western Science: The Atheists's Religion

One must be able to internalize, and fully grasp on the most fundamental of levels, that what our culture calls “science” is an abomination compared to what the founders of this concept were initially Enlightening the world to. There is indeed still beautiful and amazing science being done; yes, but as a whole one must assess the reason why the majority of science is being done in the first place. What is our culture’s motivation for scientific progression?

Capitalism: A Barking Sheep

My aim with the first part of this paper is to convince you that capitalism is an ethically inferior economic mold, and to then introduce the concept of a new economic structure that, in theory, may be able to solve the myriad moral issues encountered by capitalism. To many Americans capitalism is the sacred cow of our culture, and any criticism of it or its’ primary components must be “communist”, “socialist”, or “anarchist”, because such terms are considered bad in our culture and anything not capitalism is assumed to be bad, thus further introspection is prematurely halted. Obviously I object to this line of reasoning, and propose that although it was a sufficient upgrade from other preexisting economic systems of the time, capitalism isn’t a sufficient system for the society of today. There are numerous gaps that exist between theory and practice with every economic system. In the case of modern capitalism, these gaps are bursting open with human suffering. Capitalism was adopted in a time where the limits of natural resources and manpower seemed remote. Thus, efficiency of resource allocation and usage was not considered with an appropriate amount of merit. Since the country is currently experiencing very real and finite forms of ecological and economic issues, it stands to reason that perhaps our economic structure should be upgraded accordingly to better compliment modern reality; in some cases one might even find it to be morally imperative to do so. Again, since there are always differences between theory and practice, the alternative economic mold that I present later in this paper is of course liable to criticisms, but at the very least it may be a theoretical step in the right direction.

Time & Transitional Justice

With regards to transitional justice, the dimension of time is important in three primary ways. First, in relation to retributive mechanisms, time is often a limiting factor. If the goal is to punitively punish perpetrators of violence, the practical question of how long such a process would actually take needs to be asked. Second, time plays a role in attaining reconciliation between perpetrators and their victims. The ability for cultures to arrive at a state of reconciliation tends to increase as time progresses because it allows for the repair of relationships and overall social infrastructure. Finally, time must be recognized for its role in the formation of collective memory. How members of a culture talk about and remember their experiences in connection with the experiences of those around them forms a gestalt conceptualization of what took place and how it was resolved, and this conceptualization has the capacity to change over time as conditions continue to evolve. In brief, transitional justice institutions need to consider time’s impact on retribution, reconciliation, and time’s role in the formation of collective memory.

Do We Influence The Weather?

I suspect that mankind has a direct effect on the weather that is independent of technology or pollution.

Biologica Esoterica

I'd like to talk about human health. . . again. This time let's approach the topic differently than we have in my older heath-related articles.

Return of the Garden of Eden

At this point I'm confident that this world will one day heal. I was skeptical about it for a while, thinking at one point that humanity would, for sure, destroy everything on this planet in our ignorant desire to dominate one-another. However, I've seen enough to make me lean the optimist's way despite all of the nasty things happening around the world. You see, the greatest thing that could happen to humanity is to be malcontent, to be angry, to be indignant, because it is only through the experience of these feelings that we can be properly motivated to actually change things. Judging by the volume of such emotions I perceive in the world around me, I sense that there is ample motivation, and therefore there is ample hope. There is one fundamental stumbling block that I'd like to address, though.

The Nature of God

I’d like to have an open, polite, honest, and respectful conversation about the nature of God.


Nudity is a funny thing in our culture.

The Blind Fool

There are certain aspects of ourselves that we hold close to our hearts, to which we only allow certain select others access based upon our own arbitrary and subjective viewpoint of who is worthy of such a connection with us, and who is not.

High Voltage

We have previously discussed the importance of properly watering your human flesh-puppet, and how to go about doing so in accordance with the highest efficacy (here: Yesterday, we discussed the importance of developing conscious control over the nature of your breath, and an example exercise anyone can use to increase their conscious awareness over their passing thoughts and emotions throughout the day (here: Today, we’re going to discuss another critically important aspect of your flesh-puppet’s overall health: Voltage.

Breath, and Awareness

Your emotions, your hormones, the chemicals that your brain secretes, your heart rate, your immune system, your nervous system, your digestive system, your endocrine system, and your respiration are all intimately connected in ways modern science is still attempting to fully map out. When one of these aspects of the body is altered, all of the other parts are likewise altered in kind. Let's look at a typical scenario most people can relate to.

The Tree of Life: Watering Your Roots

The human body, just like any needy plant in a garden, requires two to three deep waterings, and at least a few hours of direct sunlight per day.

Secular Religion, and The Illusion of Lack

A transition has occurred. I feel this will likely be my last article for at least a few months. Much has changed in the world since I began this blog. Things have come to light that were before shunned and taboo to discuss, but now the average conversation I overhear is littered with seeds of hope that one day many of the global issues we currently face will be properly alleviated. This fills me with joy to think about, but also makes me question my role here in this medium of communication, because it seems that there has already been a "critical mass" of sorts attained in the spreading of certain ideas. Essentially, I don't think I'm being of the highest service to others in this role anymore; at least not for the time being. Allow me to dot a couple i's, and cross a couple t's here in this article while I wrap up my most current thoughts on a variety of topics, then bid you all adieu.

Hang an Innocent, Or Let Five Die?

Occasionally, extremely difficult decisions are encountered that reveal no morally obvious course of action to take. Such circumstances are best summed up with the common euphemism, “You’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” A prime example of one such extremely difficult decision would be the following:

DNA and You: Hacking the Binary Code of Life

I love genetics. I think genetics is definitely one of the coolest sciences ever studied by humanity. As such, I talk about genetics pretty often. I wonder sometimes, however, if I am describing certain concepts in a comprehensible enough fashion to genuinely convey the ideas I happen to write about so often. In this article, allow me to guide you through my best explanation of what your DNA is, and how such information can lead to to living a more fulfilling existence here on Earth.

Anatomy of a Dream Part III: Alchemy and The Yoga of the Mind

It's taken me a bit longer to write this installation than I thought it would. The information has been available for me to write down, but for some reason I haven't had as much motivation to write these last few weeks. I've found that my alone time has turned into an interesting silence, and I just haven't felt much like being bothered to actually create a body for my thoughts to reside in. I have, however, been reaching some vital conclusions about my life and the manner in which I plan to continue my adventures here on Earth. Thus, now it appears is the proper time in which to present this final installation of Anatomy Of A Dream. The content of this article has weighed heavily on my mind these last few weeks, and I very much hope I convey these concepts accurately enough to be of help to others.

Anatomy of a Dream Part II: What is "Fifth-Dimensional" Thought?

It's been a few weeks since we initially began this series, but now it is time to follow the rabbit hole deeper and get to the real guts of what dreams are. In part one, we briefly discussed the way in which you personally partake in fourth dimensional thought-processes all the time; noting how this shapes and forms your reality based upon the decisions you make on a waking, conscious level. Now, let's use this information to aid us in trying to better understand the nature of our dreaming thought-processes.

Real Talk

I talk about a whole lotta shit. I talk about health. I talk about science. I talk about ancient forgotten history, futuristic utopian economic systems, technology, yoga, 'energy', and all sorts of other crazy-ass stuff that many of you probably find odd. You know what though? I've had this damn blog going for a year now, and somehow I've neglected to take the time to talk about the most amazing thing to ever happen to me. Please, allow me to introduce you to my Rock, my All, my Angle; my Wife.

The Scientific Validity of Divinity

This is a research paper I turned in today for my writing class. It's kept me pretty busy for the last few days, but it turned out to be a well worth-it endeavor. I learned so much from studying this topic, and I highly recommend you look into the Biocentric Universe at Dr. Robert Lanza's website.

Discussing the relationship between working, and having a job.

Work makes the mind disciplined and present, and it is absolutely vital for a meaningful life. Work can be uncomfortable at times, and often means some form of sacrifice of one's time and physical comfort, making work a very clear indication (or lack thereof) of what a person cares about. All people could very much benefit from the side effects of good, hard work.

The Anatomy of a Dream Part I : What is "Fourth-Dimensional" Thought?

Initially when I sat down here to write this article, I was going to talk about the importance of dreams in your everyday life. Then, as I began writing, I realized that I had made a huge error in the way I was going about approaching the topic. How could I adequately explain the sheer importance of the dreaming mind without first explaining what, exactly, the 'dreaming mind' is? I ended up deleting all that stuff, and here we are. So, here is my best attempt at explaining the nature of fourth dimensional thought processes:

Death Within a Dream: An Analysis

This is a just a lil didly that I wrote back in January, and recently stumbled upon while going through my files. I found it because I have been gathering some of my unpublished material on dreams that might help me further explain an upcoming article more effectively. To begin, we will simply address the validity of the dreaming phenomenon. Enjoy, and keep an eye out for the next installment in this series!

Solidifying A Psychological Cliché

Whenever I see or read something that discusses the benefits of 'releasing negative emotion', I feel as if the process involved in doing so is conveyed a bit vague, and that the concept itself sounds quite empty, like a hollow "bless you" spoken after a stranger sneezes. In order to more concisely explain the brevity and importance of this concept, and hopefully help as many people I can, I propose an analogy:

Ode to Pedophilia

We as a society are a bunch of pedophiles. Yes, chances are quite high that just about every one of you are in some way influenced by pedophilic tendencies. Granted, obviously we're not all a bunch of baby-touchers or child rapists, but the kicker comes in the fine print of the definition for "pedophilia". A bit of a bold claim, I know, but give me a few minutes to make my argument and the comment box is all yours.

Does Thought = Prayer = Magic? : Intelligent Criticism of a Recent Article

This entire post is to highlight an excellent response to a recent article. I would have just typed all this into the comment box at the end of that article, but I can’t seem to keep it under the 1,400 character limit. No matter, there’s always space for more when you own a website.

iYoga, and So Can You

Over the years I have devoted a large amount of my time to endeavors related to personal physical fitness. They have all served their purposes very well, but I must say that I continually find myself coming back to yoga. Other than a few of the other eastern arts such as Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong, I haven't encountered a system of overall health that matches the capabilities of yoga in the rejuvenating, healing, and building of the physical body. Read on for my best sales pitch on why you should try to incorporate at least some yoga into your daily life.

Thought = Prayer = Magic? : Discussing the Thinking Process

Most people I know are under this impenetrable belief that their lives are at the mercy of chance, fate, or some other outside and independent agency acting upon them. They think themselves powerless, and thus refuse to take responsibility for the happenings of their lives; instead choosing to look out away from themselves for either answers or simply something to blame for their current condition.

This will simply not do.

A Brief Guide to Effective Meditation

While on The Healer's Journal I stumbled upon this article originally composed by The Big View, and I felt it worth sharing because of just how comprehensively and intuitively the author communicates this particular flavor of ideas. If you have ever wondered about how one actually goes about achieving a state of meditation, or have ever tried meditation before but became frustrated from a perceived lack of experience, this is an excellent article for you.

The Fine Line Between Education and Indoctrination & A Brief Experiment Update

There is a tear in the fabric of our knowledge. There is a rift that runs so deep into our collective consciousness that it is very difficult to identify, let alone put accurate words to. This article is my attempt to put words to such a beast, because in the naming and recognition of an issue one may then begin to work towards removing it from their lives.

We Are The Walking Dead

The current lifestyle here in the modern Western world is not only ridiculous, it is absolute mathematical suicide. To continue on the path of this lifestyle in the face of all of the current medical/epidemiological literature is the biggest mistake our country has ever made. Welcome to your current reality, the reality your broken economic structure has delivered to your feet: The NeoCapitalistic States of Indoctrinated Suicidal Tendencies.
