Some excerpts from "How to Be Part of the Solution?" video given previously:

   ...slowly we turned the mindset around in the last 3 years... that is not necessary to have a billion dollar research and everything, it is simply by observing nature we can replicate the same things effortlessly, so this turnaround of mindset is the biggest achievement of Rally For Rivers.

   ...we (isha-outreach) got acredition from UNCCD.

   ...I thought the government will be the biggest challenge... but we crossed that threshold took almost 2 years of relentless pursuit.

   ...Cauvery is very important because it is demonstratable model for the rest of the tropical world...

Successfully seeding it in people's mind will allow other questions about wellbeing to arise.  Is it not something what society should communicate?   or is what i see locally widespread - ppl becoming scared&blocked even by a mention of virus...

(fits several threads)

"The establishment doesn’t fear Trump. It doesn’t fear Bernie, and it doesn’t fear Tulsi. It fears you. It fears the people. A single politician they can deal with. The public rising up and using the power of their numbers to force change is what keeps your rulers up at night."

We are bulldozing a paradise while praying we go to Heaven when we die. We are killing off giant-brained leviathans in our own oceans whose mental lives we know little about while searching the stars for intelligent life. We are burning our home in our search for a sense of home.

Saturday mUSING: Food for thought <eh> on Experience > Thought > Word

in attempt of expressing inner experience to outer world, in transition from inward to outward, from experience to word, how much is lost in such communication attempt?

an example, an almost random pick of source: In the beginning was the λόγος ...
Hence λόγος is, first of all, a collecting or collection both of things in the mind, and of words by which they are expressed. It therefore signifies both the outward form by which the inward thought is expressed, and the inward thought itself,
and then someone translates λόγος with Word, eh .

johnm33, thanks for the links i'll take a look...

Main intention with The Gadget post is to inspire/motivate a reader to think a bit about own body/mind and power of it.

Most people around me are not aware even of own nasal cycle, so my main interest is on elementary stuff, like breath... and how to get people to pay more attention to their basic faculties and stop doing variety of nasty things they do unconsciously to themselves.
To get people to think, feel, understand and experience little more is harder then i previously thought.

In my view experiments should decide which idea is better to follow because only experiments can have real credibility.

Part Five

By William C. Bushell and Maureen Seaberg

This periodic series has been addressing a potentially revolutionary and historic movement in physics and cosmology–and not only a potentially revolutionary and historic movement in these particular subjects–but also in the general, wider range of the history and ultimate nature of humanity overall: what it means to be human, on the most fundamental of levels.

The movement as of yet has no unification, no internal cohesion, no formal name or profile, no leaders or spokespersons, and, in its essential form, it is just now emerging–without a formal public definition or announcement–within the last few months dramatically, and within the last few years less dramatically and less clearly (and one could even say that it has been percolating for much longer, but in a domain even more obscure in terms of global awareness).


Only as of recently, and many findings just emerging from rigorous scientific research by leading researchers at leading scientific institutions within the last few weeks and months, we can now say that human beings have the proven potential to:

    * see light on the level of the single photon, essentially the most irreducible unit of light that exists
    * hear at the level of vibrations with amplitudes on the atomic scale, and discriminate auditory time intervals within the range of millionths of a second
    * experience acute tactile discrimination on the nanoscale – ie, billionths of a meter – even down to the level of being able to discriminate matter on the level of individual molecules
    * detect, through quantum mechanically-based mechanisms of olfactory sensitivity, over a trillion different smells, through the human olfactory system, only recently recognized as a part of a larger, sophisticated, organism-wide chemoreception system

And equally striking, even startling, is the fact that within the last year, leading physicists from top institutions around the world,  including at least one Nobel Prize-winning physicist, have called for a new revolutionary protocol to be pursued in physics, the actual recruitment of human subjects to use their own newly discovered sensory-perceptual capacities in order to attempt to directly perceive key, quantum phenomena which have proven elusive to modern technologies and methodologies!

Indian life after elections:

"From rage and rhetoric to responsibility" - By Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, May 25, 2019.
The time for divisive drama, for rage and rhetoric, is over. It is time to look beyond narrow sectarian and party affiliations and commit to working for the future of the nation. The winners should conduct themselves with humility, and the losers should accept the verdict gracefully without abandoning their commitment to work for national betterment.

Gandhiji said, “Evolution of democracy is not possible if we are not prepared to hear the other side.” It is time to listen without turning reactive. It is time to look inward and look ahead. Let us not trivialise the democratic process by looking back in anger and resentment. Rage and resentment are poisons that you drink, expecting someone else to die. It is time to put an end to the age-old patterns of assigning blame outward or heavenward. Only then can we collectively move from rhetoric to responsibility.
