I'm in an empty roomβ€”a large empty room where not much happens. I have any art on the walls, no library, no coffee table or couch. It's just a lot of space and a nice floor. In a corner, I keep my rolled yoga mat. Near the window is a...

Hey google! "what is happiness?"

You have probably noticed the irony of the situation: I am asking a bot to tell me what it means to be happy. That most wanted of human emotions, the epitome of a life well-lived. What does a bot know about being happy? Let us see; with genuine curiosity, I...

Practical guide for brewing fizzy drinks.

A bottle of kombucha 0,7l costs 5€. A 6-pack of ginger beer costs about ten. I drink beer too, but sometimes I just want something without alcohol. It's a shame they do not sell more of it in the bars and restaurants here. Anyway, I picked up a bottle of...

Practical guide to meditation.

If there is a guide for operating the human mind, it is the Dharma. Meditation helps to calm the mind. Just as the moon is reflected in a river flowing smoothly, the meditated mind enables insight into its workings.

The mind is inherently flawed, operating on biological conditioning and cultural and...

The exercise in imagination she was talking about was bullshit. She was trying to talk me into buying her vitamins and visualize myself becoming healthier, smarter, and more intelligent. She said the visualization part was essential and that I should never take her vitamins without using my imagination. I was...

Keep it simple

Improvement in anything requires persistent focus. To improve, you must read your old write-ups and re-write them. Sometimes the writing is nuanced by personal emotions. That is not always a bad thing, it depends on the subject. Lingvistic patterns and automatic modes of expression must be overcome. Writing the same...

Everything is ok until it happens to us

Not all books are worth reading. Some are really bad. Others are so-so, and there are a few powerful, interesting, intense that can change you forever. To write a good book is a big thing. Take "The Gulag Archipelago" for example, it brought down the URSS; or the Journal of...

The Thiel conspiracy as reply to On the 27th floor

Opening the youtube homepage I saw two videos that peaked my attention: first - "Peter Thiel investing in the preservation of rare butterflies" and second - "Window cleaner dies collecting rare butterflies". A strange algorithm, I thought and so I cmd+click'ed on the second one, more out of curiosity to...

A rising blue flame
Explorations of the unseen universe

It dawned on me that the typical everyday perception hides a different underlying reality that is far more intriguing and interesting. I embarked on a quest to penetrate it by searching for cues that will reveal the way. Initially, I thought it's just nonsense. However, considering the possibility, little by...

I was going to bed but then i remembered that i didn't write today.



I've been experimenting with LSD micro-dosing. The dose is very low, less than 50 micrograms. The effects are mild and somehow fade into the background of daily activities. I went swimming and chilling on the beach, on the rocks all afternoon. The water feel amazing, with the view and everyone...
