Washing the brain is a daily function of sleep. Rinse, wash (REM Sleep) and repeat. The inevitability of sleep is necessary to survival. The idealized human forme has no need for sleep. This blatantly avoids the biology under the blasphemer defense.

Washing the brain is a daily function of sleep. Rinse, wash (REM Sleep) and repeat. The inevitability of sleep is necessary to survival. The idealized human form has no need for sleep. This blatantly avoids the biology under the blasphemer defense. Logically inconsistent and magically auspicious, entire scientific disciplines where mythologized around the subconscious.

Competition From Within

PB is your personal best. From a sports psychology standpoint, this is how I competed in my athletic years. The focus on training is the victory, of course, but on race day it's all an imagined state of preconception to the best of my ability. Oddly, the outcomes were often better than the time before.

Back of the Envelope Conversations

The unified joy/sorrow theory is reified with biochemistry and the mnemonic on the back of the envelope. What regions of the brain produce such action potentials you may ask? Look into it and report on what you discover.

Commission is the Same as Omission

‌Current social bias tells us that doing harm is viewed as worse than permitting it.[1] According to Charles Péguy's deontological statement[2], the two are sui generis; commission is the same as omission![3]

Hippo camp Space Navigation Within Each and Every One of Us

​Constellations fire between the ears of billions and yet one wrong move and the whole world lets you know. Knowledge through negation in a form handed down from the thrones of your peers. Top-down and bottom-up, the corrective measure of false intellectual claims should be incentive enough to keep cheaters at bay.

Fixed Action Potentials

Deterministic perhaps or partially so, the fixed action potentials of the "will" indomitable probability calculators on the shoulders of dwarfs. Seeing further is cumulative, discuss the strength of knowledge and the wisdom with ignore.

Replace Soul with Mind

When you describe consciousness, do you gravitate towards soul, mind, or both? Now using the lens of biology, how does your understanding shift? Remember, this is a subjective exercise designed to reflect your own divergent and convergent thinking within a structure of sorts. Aesthetically manifest and for all to see!  

Fear and Loathing Lost in Vagus Nerves

I propose the hermetic meme, an individual unit of understanding. Wisdom, in its abstract form and ambiguous state, acts as a variable list of ingredients, the gradients of value move towards the homeostasis of the ideal. The aesthetic, the essence of beauty lies in its the arrangement and the contradictions that emerge, however ironic this may sound.

I Think You've Got That Backwards

Enough with light and darkness dichotomies already! The sun, not the Son, is a reference to the one and only source of life in this particular solar system. Darkness is the absence of this energy. Everything else is a metaphor, a poetic imagining of what it's like to be conscious. I am not discounting your meta-language, we all know what it's fore. Use it wisely my son!

Mount Olympus

This non-existent pathway to creativity isn't prescriptive, what Gerard Manley Hopkins is referring to is the Mount Parnassus in Greece. I added the "Mount Olympus" to the entitled responsion because of this allusion but also the mnemonic that all first year neuroscience studies should know by heart. Expand on these themes by intertwining the dendrite with the mountainous.

Biology is the Equalizer

The wealthy view wealth differently. Perceptions of being poor are easily manipulated to your benefit. The change is environmental. Speaking of the Environment, have you done your daily good? Minimized? Decluttered? Simplified??

Self Contradiction - Get over it!

By multiple orders of magnitude, the multitudes that confine the mind of Whitman can temper the reader to be more forgiving of the ironies in our subjective experiences. We cast a wide neural net, parsing perspectives and placing ideas in categorical hierarchies of elimination.
