After making a point of watching the movie Arrival last night, and in reference to the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis that was mentioned in it, I found myself Googling the following phrases… Can human brains experience non-linear time? Can human brains rewire themselves to experience time non-linearly? (Note: I also Googled to double check if non-linearly is a word. ...

Original Story at http://www.galactanet.com/oneoff/theegg_mod.html The Egg By: Andy Weir You were on your way home when you died. It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were ...

Are you in two minds or are there two minds inside you?

This was a random thought that came to mind during a conversation with an INFP friend. Are we made up of two consciousnesses rather than just the one? The idea originated during a discussion on food, and in particular our constant mental battle against it. i.e. the symbolic devil/angel on each shoulder - one prompting you ...

Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.

“It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

~ Theodore Roosevelt

In a decade of trying, it proved impossible for me to come up with a design for the tattoo I’d always wanted. This, perhaps surprisingly, was due to the fact I’m a creative by trade. Why should this be difficult then you ask? Well… people with an inherent creative nature tend to find their ideas ...
