Heart eartH

“Love is selfless,” “love cannot be fully captured with words,” “love transcends labels,” “love is unconditional,” the list goes on. What exactly is it that we are implying when we make these types of statements? Furthermore, what does “love” actually mean? That word seems to describe a diverse assortment of states. People typically feel love…

Stubb (a Dub)

This page is going to be a place for me to share my progress on the new piano song that I’m learning! 😊 It’s called “Stubb (a Dub),” by Mr. Bungle. A rather odd song, with some disturbing moments, beautiful sections, and everything in between. Chorus (09/10/15): https://clyp.it/rimgx1wy

Piecing Apart the Past

It’s time for a thought experiment! A thought experiment about time. First, close your eyes…   Well, now that I think about it, it might help if you keep them open until I give you a bit more information. 😆 To be perfectly frank, I’m nothing more than a series of letters on a website….

Are You Some Body?

Who are you? Or, rather, to put it differently, what is “you”? Let’s play a game. The conditions are simple. If you win, then you get to keep your current belief systems and I have to admit, not only to being wrong, but to being detached from reality. Delusional, even. And that’s a tough pill…

Behind Closed Eyelids

Close your eyes, and gently press on your eyelids for a few seconds. … What did you see? If you are like most people (as most people are), then you were greeted with a visual fireworks display of neon green sparklers and clouds of fuchsia that sashayed across your visual field. Maybe these were intermingled…

Two Paths to SPAMAYL

Today is my third day on a brand new sleep cycle: SPAMAYL. It stands for “sleep polyphasically whenever you want,” and it’s kind of like the Uberman sleep cycle in that it consists of nothing but 20m (20-minute) naps. However, its similarities end here. The Uberman cycle imposes a rigid schedule on the people who…

Polyphasic Update – 02/21/16

I’m starting to feel fed up with the Uberman sleep cycle. (Warning: Technical post ahead.) In case you haven’t been spending hours and hours reading over everything you can find about polyphasic sleep, I’m talking about an alternative sleep routine where the only rest one gets is from six—yes, you heard me right, six—20m naps….

Sleep Paralysis – 02/05/16

Today is the fifth day of my polyphasic sleep experiment. I’m amazed at how much better I’m feeling than I was a few days ago. The first week or so in one’s adjustment to a polyphasic sleep cycle tends to temporarily kill one’s motivation, blur one’s thoughts, and make one feel quite unhealthy as one’s…

Day 1 – 02/01/16

Summary Other than this morning’s oversleep, today went quite well. I felt energetic (after I woke up at 8:50am, that is), and I found that it didn’t feel especially hard to wake up from each nap. Later on, I trained with the rock climbing club from 8pm to 11pm. I found, much to my surprise,…

5 iPhone Apps to Supercharge Your Focus

When is the last time you thought, “I am going to finish this History assignment right now” only to find yourself spending the next 25 minutes adding a list of your favorite movies to your Facebook profile? How many loud-talkers in the library or TV-show-watching family members have managed to derail your train of thoughts…

First PolyFauxPas

Last night, I had an encounter with a zombie. *Cue Twilight Zone music* It wasn’t one of the zombie-sprinters from Dead Trigger. (How on earth do they move so fast?!?) No, it was more like the sort of zombie that, after having its legs blown off, slowly drags itself across the floor like a dog…
