the book is great, but the audio interviews are  HERE

Do you take pride in your hurt? Does it make you seem large and tragic? … Well, think about it. Maybe you’re playing a part on a great stage with only yourself as audience. — John Steinbeck, East of Eden (via light-essence)

Far Out: The Most Psychedelic Images in Science

1. One of the best models of a sunspot ever made. Scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research produced this simulation by plugging the newest sunspot data into a 76-teraflop supercomputer. The image required nearly 2 billion data points to simulate the magnetism, temperature, and other features of a sunspot; it models the phenomenon down to a depth of nearly 4,000 miles.

2. This rainbow image of concentric circles is a quartz crystal as seen through a microscope that images its “birefringence“—the crystal’s unusual ability to bend light to varying degrees depending upon its orientation. Since differently oriented light rays are refracted differently, they diverge as they go through the quartz crystal, creating doubled images and, more psychedelically, these crazy colors. The image is taken from research by Mike Glazer of Oxford University.

3. Fractals form a major section of psychedelic art, and the king of fractals was Benoit Mandelbrot, who just died in October 2010. In his famous Mandelbrot set, each small part is the same as the whole, and the image boundary becomes continually more detailed as you zoom in.

4. This may look like a child’s Spirograph drawing, but it’s actually what scientists at CERN hope to see when the Large Hadron Collider in Europe reaches full smashing power: The decay of that elusive subatomic particle, the Higgs boson.

5. NASA’s false-color treatment of satellite images turns ordinary shots of our planet into pictures of another world worthy of science fiction, replete with purple oceans and orange outcroppings. This inverted treatment of the Himalaya Mountains was made with the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER), which combined near-infrared, red, and green wavelengths.

6. The heart of this image is a spherical colony of Volvox algae, about 100 micrometers across, with a flurry of nutrients fluttering by. Volvox have been forming these multicellular colonies for more than 200 million years.

BLACK MARCHThursday, March 1st 2012 to Saturday 31st March 2012
With the continuing campaigns for Internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites such as Megaupload under allegations of ‘piracy’ and ‘conspiracy’ the time has come to take a stand against music, film and media companies’ lobbyists.
The only way is to hit them where it truly hurts.Their profit margins.
March 2012 is the end of the 1st quarter in economic reports worldwide.
Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy, Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine.
Wait the 4 weeks to buy them in April: see the film later, etc. Holding out for just 4 weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media and entertainment companies’ profits for the 1st quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments worldwide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes.This action can give a statement of intent:
 ”We will not tolerate the Media Industries’ lobbying for legistation which will censor the internet.”

Wow, okay, this actually might have some impact. Normally “hole in the earnings” activism is doomed to fail because if we all take a day off from buying gasoline without changing our driving habits then at the end of the week we’ve still used the same amount of gas, but in this case… the specific way industry focuses on profits on a quarterly basis, this might get noticed.
I’ll add to this because I’m a comic book buyer: DC Comics is Warner Bros. Marvel Comics is Disney. So yes, they count.

I’ll do my best, but then again, I’m broke as shit, so I’m all in.

Your local library can probably be your best friend if you’re trying for this.

I mean, I have no money to spend on any of that anyway, so I’m down.

This book is GREAT. 509 pages that systematically and seamlessly integrates ancient yogic with modern psychological theories to give an understanding of  emotional, bodily, and energetic blocks  and imbalances and how to address them. This gave me immediate insight about my personal issues, what kind of situations I generate, who I choose to have my life and why,  and what I need to do to grow and move forward. WOW.
