  3. Only just figured out how to sing by the way. Like 5 min ago. Feels great. Now just got to perfect it. No warm ups or anything here, just checking the grooves of it. Sound has to be as close to my speaking voice as possible, picked up bad habits in the past, that's pretty much the only reason why i sing with a different voice sometimes other than having the ability to do so.
  4. Completed at a friends place haha fun times. 1 take more or less. Just a mac mic so yeah self explanatory. Builds up...

  5. Friend wants me to read Osho and Krishnamurti so I'll add them to the list once I get word on the exact books, adding Nietzsche on top of Dostoievski this month (and next) as well because coincidentally they're reading them both too. They'll read Crime and Punishment now too. Proceedings of the 22nd Engineering Applications of Neural Networks Conference: EANN 2021 https://books.google.nl/books/about/Proceedings_of_the_22nd_Engineering_Appl.html?id=T7k0EAAAQBAJ&source=kp_book_description&redir_esc=y Neurodiversity and informational cosmonauts, the first people to have a mental library in outer-space.
  6. Haha maybe this is a bad idea, I've already read the first chapter... so pumped up right now. For me maybe I need something more Samskara given I've already got an inner Goggins. I'll keep reading... All the way to the end. Respect.
  7. I spelt plough wrong, luckily no one here has ever liked me for my linguistic prowess. Ha. That reminds me of The Dave, I'll give his book a read. Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds By David Goggins 2018
  8. Just started on this anti-homo-sapien architectural labyrinth after coming across https://www.naturepl.com/pictures/pdfs/NPL_Architecture.pdf Built by Animals: The Natural History of Animal Architecture 1st Edition by Mike Hansell (Author)
  9. 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School by Matthew Frederick. fucking loving it right now, picked it up off the shelf at my friends place and just started reading while he was on the phone then asked to borrow it. I just plow through them these days. Only takes an idea or two to make this book worthwhile, it aims to present 101.
  10. This experience has/is creating a radical metamorphosis within me. Truly, profound shift. Unspeakable and unknowable until it all unfolds through the breadth of consciousness. Her silent breath Calms me Thousands of miles away Her energy still felt, Right inside of me Through and all over Monochrome beauty, intimate purity I must fight I say, but she encases me completely with her calmness All I ask is that she let me remember my mission, "peacefully" though she says She washes and bathes my spirit Cleanses me Forgives my rowdiness, my sins Fills me with understanding But let's me remember its truth when it has truth to bare Calmness again, calmness again Resolute. Resolute. Wash away. Wash away. Love. In.
  11. Personal story: I’ve realised that thinking is overrated, that introspection was what I was meant to be fucking creating all along within myself I just didn’t realise until recently. I sat down with a homeless person last week, talked to him about his problems and realised this guy has just been so fucking afraid of himself inside, to really dive deep into himself to turn the lights on within himself that he’s just let fade. I realised that when people drift, drift can gather momentum just like the feeling of goodness if we know how to carry it. I enrolled him in a self expression course, bought him new stuff/clothes and he’ll be seeing a therapist once a week now that I’ll pay half of for the first 10 weeks (the rest will be government subsidised). Because of everything that I know about the human brain, I know it’s possible for him to change but I know I can’t force anything, all I can do is create positive conditions and see how he takes to them. He cried in my arms and that’s a massive change point for him. The guy has no one else in his life, his family and friends have deserted him and most others ostracise him. When we don’t see ourselves in the other, we see ourselves as human but less and less we see the other person as human. Our life is created without conscience and our view of the history is a pretence for examining our own inauthenticity. Introspection learned at the depths of ones soul heals the soul of humanity. Time to awaken the rebel within and burn this materialistic evolutionarily misaligned society strategy by strategy, inch by inch, sophistication by sophistication, ambition by ambition, love of war through the war of love. This experience has only made me more motivated to think more futuristically about community design in this changing modern world. You don't have to do anything charitable like this and I certainly know I haven't done much of this in my life, just learn to know the deepest peace within you, that any struggle you're going through, someone else is experiencing it on planet earth elsewhere too. That by learning to have love in your heart, you teach the world how to. We're not minds, we're not bodies and we're certainly never going to just be machines, we're soul in a deeper soul and as a species we've fallen off our developmental path of love, truth, wisdom and rebellion against what rails against those three. Never give up the good fight within.

  13. I do not necessarily support the views held in any of the books that I share here. Creative ideational syntheses will be my only support as it pertains to said views that interconnect between described books and whatever other experiential engineering of my choosing. Moreover, any view that I personally share outside of personal sentiment is progressively stated aka open to continual rebirth and renewal into higher forms. Last few weeks - Creative synthesis shall be shared at a later time. Busy. 1.

  14. From the first writing I say: I think its about time for me to clock on at the "work of life" where we're all eternally bound to be employed until infinity breaks open for us again to aim for at least a thousand plus years in a day haha. Written pre-2021.
