"Ode on a gas grill"

Thou still unravished bride of deliciousness,
Thou foster child of joy and good time,
R2D2 version 2007, who canst thus cook
A zucchini more sweetly than our oven:

What olive oil soaked taste haunts about thy shape now
Of vegetables or meat, or of both,
In Bushwick or the dales of Gramercy?
What men or gods took you? Why the urge to grill

generic viagra

What mad hunger? What struggle to party?
What music and hipsters? Why the need to steal?

When old oven shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of another rooftop
Than ours, a friend to bohemian, to whom thou say'st,
“food is truth, truth food,” – that is all
Ye know in brooklyn, and all ye need to know.

(a rework of Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats, after our grill was stolen from our rooftop)

Question: Why want it all when you can have some and be happy? Because it's more fun to want it all, all the time.

if time is nothing other than tension what is gravity?

Augustine tries very hard to understand time and is very puzzled by its elusive qualities. He knows what it is as long as no one asks him to explain it to him or her. He believes that God created time,

that the past and the future do not exist, and that time is nothing other than tension.

relate and relativity

“…Now lets see an example of Relativity at work:

Example 1:
A space-ship move away from Earth at a constant speed at 80% of speed of light (0.80c). As a viewer, you remain stationary on Earth. Your task is to compare the space-ship's clock with your wrist-watch after 1-second has pass.
– The result shows that: The space-ship's clock has pass 1.6667-second. Which seams like that the space-ship's clock has being running 70% slower than your watch.

Refering to example 1, what

would happen if you were instead in that space-ship and not on Earth?
– You'll be surprise that after you had measured 1-second, Earth's clock will be at 1.6667-second, which indicate that Earth's clock is 70% slower than your wrist-watch…”

oh and

“…A person travelling near the speed of light would also find that colours of lights ahead were blue shifted and of those behind were red shifted.”

maybe I forgot

I’ve just realized that we are possibly the first generation to realize collectively that humanity is not going to last forever and we’ll disspear on earth without accomplishing anything or even having a slight undertanding about anything at all.

Nietzsche knew it:

“In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the highest and most mendacious minute of “world history”—yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die.”

it didn’t do him any good to know it though…

ah amygdala siamese (and my cortical inhibition)

it's not worth it.
is it never worth it?
if it's not worth it, would it hurt so?
nothing is worth anything how do you value?
it's not worth it.
I agree, I'll try.
Heart and brain are engaged; to my heart I can't lie.


under normal physiological conditions, the heart's intrinsic nervous system plays an important role in much of the routine control of cardiac function, independent of the central nervous system…

It is our experience that the degree of coherence between the mind and emotions can vary considerably. When they are out-of-phase, overall awareness is reduced. Conversely, when they are in-phase, awareness is expanded. This interaction affects us on a number of levels: Vision, listening abilities, reaction times, mental clarity, feeling states and sensitivities are all influenced by the degree of mental and emotional coherence experienced at any given moment.

The results of research studies summarized in this overview, taken together, support the intriguing view that individuals can gain more conscious control over the process of creating increased coherence within and between the mental and emotional systems than might be commonly believed.

Familiar input patterns from the external environment and from within the body are ultimately written into neural circuitry and form a stable backdrop, or reference pattern, against which new information or experiences are compared. According to this model, when an external or internal input is sufficiently different from the familiar reference pattern, this “mismatch” or departure from the familiar underlies the generation of feelings and emotions.

In our internal environment many different organs and systems contribute to the patterns that ultimately determine our emotional experience. However, research has illuminated that the heart plays a particularly important role.

The heart is the most powerful generator of rhythmic information patterns in the human body. As we saw earlier, it functions as sophisticated information encoding and processing center, and possesses a far more developed communication system with the brain than do most of the body's major organs. With every beat, the heart not only pumps blood, but also transmits complex patterns of neurological, hormonal, pressure and electromagnetic information to the brain and through-out the body. As a critical nodal point in many of the body's interacting systems, the heart is uniquely positioned as a powerful entry point into the communication network that connects body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Numerous experiments have now demonstrated that the messages

the heart sends the brain affect our perceptions, mental processes, feeling states and performance in profound ways. Our research suggests that the heart communicates information relative to emotional state (as reflected by patterns in heart rate variability) to the cardiac center of the brain stem (medulla), which in turn feeds into the intralaminar nuclei of the thalamus and the amygdala. These areas are directly connected to the base of the frontal lobes, which are critical for decision making and the integration of reason and feeling. The intralaminar nuclei send signals to the rest of the cortex to help synchronize cortical activity, thus providing a pathway and mechanism to explain how the heart's rhythms can alter brainwave patterns and thereby modify brain function.

Our data indicate that when heart rhythm patterns are coherent, the neural information sent to the brain facilitates cortical function. This effect is often experienced as heightened mental clarity, improved decision making and increased creativity. Additionally, coherent input from the heart tends to facilitate the experience of positive feeling states. This may explain why most people associate love and other positive feelings with the heart and why many people actually “feel” or “sense” these emotions in the area of the heart. In this way, as will be explored further in the studies presented in this Overview, the heart is intimately involved in the generation of psychophysiological coherence.

Research has shown that the heart's afferent neurological signals directly affect activity in the amygdala and associated nuclei, an important emotional processing center in the brain. The amygdala is the key brain center that coordinates behavioral, immunological and neuroendocrine responses to environmental threats. It also serves as the store-house of emotional memory within the brain. In assessing the environment, the amygdala compares incoming emotional signals with stored emotional memories. In this way, the amygdala makes instantaneous decisions about the threat level of incoming sensory information, and due to its extensive connections to the hypothalamus and other autonomic nervous system centers, is able to “hijack” the neural pathways activating the autonomic nervous system and emotional response before the higher brain centers receive the sensory information.”


But Damasio sought out patients who had suffered brain injuries that prevented them from perceiving their own feelings, and put this idea to the test. The lives of these patients quickly fell apart, he found, because they could not make effective decisions. Some made terrible investments and ended up bankrupt; most just spent hours deliberating over irrelevant details, such as where to eat lunch. These results suggest that proper thinking requires feeling. Pure reason is a disease
