While #science thought us that we can even cut and paste #genes with #CRISPR technology…even with that we only influence 3% to 5% of #chronicillness. The rest depends on #how you #live your #life!!! So how do we #SelfRegulate our #body?
1. Good #sleep is more important than most think! What happens during sleep? The fluctuation of consciousness…that we call the waking state. But in many wisdom traditions of the world, the waking state is merely a lucid dream that consciousness is having…

"The erosion of meaningful culture, the domination of corporate & state media [] the loss of a knowledgable audience. And as one sees w/ the Russophobic response to Ukraine, the entire pandemic only served as a precursor to some complete mental collapse."…
"And perhaps the best place (or one of them) to start is with ideas of #autonomy, #AI, and #tech (#media). For #automation and the internet have both, in their own ways, contributed hugely to the layers of mystification surrounding everything in the #capitalist west today."
"#AI seeks to achieve the same control over mental processes that #scientific management sought to achieve over physical #labour [in 2nd industrial revolution] through a process of rationalization, fragmentation, mechanization and routinization."

@marcorubio With all due respect
you're not thinking
BIG enough, Marco.

We'd do an incredible disservice 2 ppl
and lose valuable time getting prepared
for what's to come.

TERROR is about to RAIN DOWN on at LEAST Ukraine - likely many more nations...simultaneously!
@marcorubio Remember what Rumsfeld said? 👴

A Failure of #Imagination. 🤔

And we're RIGHT in the MIDDLE of repeating that same fatal 💀 error (fatal implies dead), and hubris won't allow you to pause and take a look.…

Here's just a bit of what 🇷🇺 has in store.
@marcorubio We all know "Art imitating Life."

And "Life imitating Art."

As in, not only do we make movies about war, we invent new things to war with and then actualize them (often beyond original design) in real life.

Plenty of examples, but let's start with the simplest, since it's the

There are always one thing of Two things, A Truth or a Lie, Day or Night, Yes or No, Black or White, Some things precede all these things. What we call them Occurrence, "Imaginations", "Thoughts", "Fantasies" 👇
When a relationship is established between two people have relationship is based on distance. Then there is the Emotional connection between the two. The relationship that is formed after the relationship of feeling, is the relationship of feeling that we call imagination. 👇
There are certain conditions for the existence of everything.
The imagination cannot settle in these situations until it has fallen. Imagination comes in many forms. Imagination is the means by which we can meet God. When we can meet God in imagination, 👇

Eine neue SneakPeak zu den #SchlüsselbegriffederPublicHistory. Heute geht es um #Performativität; einen vielschichtigen Begriff, der gerade für die Public History ein enormes analytisches Potenzial bereit hält.
Los geht's!
Ob wir im #Schlachtenpanorama dem immersiven Effekt des Dabeiseins unterliegen oder als Reenactors die Schlacht von #Gettysburg nachspielen: Geschichte wird gemacht, ihre Produktion und Rezeption geschieht performativ.
Den Begriff „performativ“ prägte John L. Austin. Er wollte verdeutlichen, dass im Akt des Sprechens Handlungen vollzogen werden. Ein Beispiel: Die Schiffstaufe, die mit dem Wurf einer Flasche gegen den Schiffsrumpf und den Worten „Ich taufe dieses Schiff ...“ vollzogen wird.

Eine neue sneak-peak gibt es auch diese Woche für die #schlüsselbegriffederpublichistory. Heute geht es um die #historische #Imagination. Dieser Begriff hilft, historisches Erleben, Emotionalisierungen u auratische Erfahrungen einzuordnen.
Los geht's mit einem Beispiel:
1/ 16
Als der deutsch-jüdische Autor Peter Weiss im Dezember 1964 das erste Mal in die Gedenkstätte und das Museum Auschwitz reiste, versuchte er mit allen seinen Sinnen sich am historischen Ort ein Bild vom millionenfachen Mord zu machen.
Das Bild, das er im Kopf hat und in Worte fasst, zeugt nicht von objektiver Bestandsaufnahme oder exakter Beschreibung der Ausmaße des Verbrechens, sondern von dem Ringen darum, dem Erleben der Opfer so nah wie möglich zu sein.

Bonsoir ! 👋 Merci encore pour vos nombreux retours enthousiastes & partages, hier. 😊💚 Aujourd'hui, on va parler des #compétences requises, des #contraintes & #avantages du métier (d'où la photo ci-dessous, vous allez comprendre) !

🔽🔽🔽 #sciart #scicom
On a déjà vu ces derniers jours que certaines compétences techniques sont requises dans mon métier : maîtrise des outils de création, veille #naturaliste, entraînement régulier, etc. 🖌️
Mais le métier d'#illustrateur·rice #scientifique réclame bien d'autres compétences que ce qu'on appelle trivialement "savoir #dessiner".

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔

2/ My ambition was to honor our cherished tradition of black intellectual work and approach the movement by putting its ideals into conversation with some of our greatest thinkers and writers
3/ Chapter 1 sets the stage with Douglass and Wells grappling with what it means for blacks to find a meaningful place in a young #democratic nation founded on #4racialbondage and murder

#Neuroscientists worldwide are increasingly studying #myelin and its amazing impact on rapid #learning, mastery, and neuroplasticity. So keep your circuits strong with deep, focused practice, but remember: #myelination requires quality versus quantity.
What Is #Myelination?
Myelination is the process of “insulating” a new neural pathway to strengthen it and to forge new default #behaviors. Heavily myelinated neural pathways are up to 300 times faster.
They’ve been optimized for speed and #efficiency. Increasing #myelination via intentional #practice helps us become more emotionally agile.

SFI President David Krakauer introduces our annual board of trustees symposium on New #Complexity #Economics - follow this thread for live coverage of talks by @EricBeinhocker @AKStanger @ole_b_peters @JacksonmMatt @cmoncap & W. Brian Arthur today...
"I think we have to be aware that we're not just discussing financial systems. We are discussing the future of the stability of the planet."

on #Complexity #Economics
"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

The most insidious function
of power is to convince us that it must be this way, and that this is all there is. In this way, power covers its tracks. The crisis that we face is a crisis of #imagination, shaped by #power.

"Many of the worst chapters of this history result from scientism: the ideology that science is the only valid way to understand the world and solve social problems. Where science has expanded and liberated our sense of self, scientism has constrained it."…
