"The metaverse... besides being immersive and interoperable, it's meta-physical, that is, a realized illusion, an impossibility in the round, able to absorb an infinite number of contradictions and convert them into fuel for growth."--Martin Gurri @mgurri…

Why do people make money complicated?
actually, the conversation between you and money is quite simple. It generally becomes tough when you add people into it.

~ *thread* ~

We all feel good when people start liking us, our house, our car, our watch, and so on.
this is where the problem starts
One of the simplest ways to tackle this is to always set your learning standards high and living standards minimal.

I've repeatedly stated that child trafficking crosses political party lines. I have outed both sides.

This said: Alexander Acosta was not Donald Trump's first pick as Secretary of the Department of Labor. He selected Andy Puzder.

Puzder is the CEO of CKE Restaurants which
is the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. After his nomination it was learned that he'd hired an undocumented worker as a housekeeper & had been accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife.

He withdrew his nomination at which point Trump then nominated Alexander Acosta.
When Julie K Brown was "searching" for a story it was this appointment of Alex Acosta (a resident of Florida and who was responsible for giving Jeffrey Epstein the lenient sentence) that spurred her on to write her three part series titled, "Perversion of Justice".

Ce matin on démarre par une conf autour des neurosciences : Percevoir et communiquer : réalité et fiction personnelle - Yves Rosetti @AgileGrenoble #agilegrenoble #agile #neuroscience #illusion
Quelques illusions d'optiques pour commencer : le rond ici si on l'isole est le même, mais donne l'impression d'une lune jaune ou bleue. Les illusions d'optique existent car le monde est complexe. #agilegrenoble Image
Pour les spécialistes d'illusions d'optique, le concept d'illusion est un non-sens car notre cerveau interprète en permanence, en voyant des "illusions d'optique" mais aussi dans la vie de tous les jours. Ex avec le célèbre "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" de Magritte #agilegrenoble Image

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

What does a nerd do when they should have been enjoying their birthday @imrf2020 tomorrow?

Attempt to make a Sound-Induced Flash Illusion to the beat of Happy Birthday of course!

[curious if this works, may need adjustments]

To preregister my hypothesis: I suspect people should be more susceptible to these illusions when the temporal statistics of the auditory signal is predictable and known.

Today's Learning: Spotlight Effect - We believe others are paying more attention to our appearance and behavior than they really are. In reality, its not so. We also tend to believe that our emotions are more obvious than they are (Illusion of transparency).
Today's Learning: Do not be over optimistic about future events (Unrealistic Optimism). Practice Defensive pessimism, the adaptive value of anticipating problems and prepared to face them. As a Chinese proverb says "Be prepared for danger while staying in peace." #psychology
Today's learning: Immune Neglect: The human tendency to underestimate the speed and strength of the psychological immune system,which enables emotional recovery and resilience after bad things happen. We are amazingly resilient in most circumstances.#psychology #Myers

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

#Covid19India an #Ilusion of low cases. We rank lowest in the world for Testing.
@PMOIndia @CMOMaharashtra
Not trying to criticize but just my observation on how we can improve.

I arrived in Mumbai 2 days ago after d lock-down in Canada & since my family was away I had to (1/n)
take the travel risk before things get worse. I'm in self quarantine for 14 days & so is my family.
I see a lot of Hype that India has been managing it the best. While I was in Canada I have been watching the media & the entire North America officials are stressing a lot on (2/n)
TESTING TESTING & TESTING but after arriving here I just did not find that focus at all. Even at the Mumbai airport they just measured my temperature & did not instruct anything if I should be self quarantined or not though I know I have to.

India Ranks lowest in the World (3/n)

Time for the jellybean illusion! You don’t actually need a jellybean, just some type of chewable candy, preferably with different colors & flavors. M&M’s: NOT be a good choice, gold bears: fine.

#teaching #classroom #Scichat #STEMeducation #illusion #perception #scicomm
Get comfy, get your candy out, and choose two pieces of different colors/flavors. Pick up one of those two, it doesn’t matter which.
Now, STEP 1: PINCH YOUR NOSE so you can no longer breathe in or out through your nose. You can use a swimmers pincher or even a clothespin too, but using two fingers is probably more comfortable and pretty easy.
