“Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations” by Thomas L. Friedman

thankyou

Article written by Calvin Harris, HW,M  shared from December 2016 siteofcontact.net website.

I ran across a review of a book called: “Thank You For Being Late.”  Which resonated with me, being that, I was someone who had been stranded 30 miles from home due to a ‘Bro’s’, feeling that I was not moving fast enough for him, so he drove off and left me in the dust. Needless to say, the Book title, ‘Thank You for Being Late’, caught my interest and I wanted to hear what the reviewer had to say about the book and what I called “Making time for leisure.”

The reviewer of the book was literary agent Esther Newberg, from International Creative Management (ICM).  Prior to her being a literary agent, she had a career in politics in Washington, DC. and is a member of the Advisory Council of the American Museum of Natural History and The Council on Foreign Relations.

Now the author of the book, Thomas L. Friedman, seems to hint at validating my notions about ‘conscious leisure living’ and concepts of time. It seems Friedman discourse is about the paces of change in technology, globalization, and climate. The core argument he has is “simultaneous acceleration in the Commerce Market, the Natural World and Moore’s law – (the principle that the power of microchips doubles every two years) constitutes the “Age of Accelerations.”

The upshot of all of this is ‘acceleration creates fear and unmoors people.’ This causes panic or the fight, flight, or freeze response, a sign of many people becoming out of touch with themselves. Rather than panic such as reacting with fear and anger, Friedman, like myself, offers personal recommendations for coping with accelerations, such as to slow down “pause and reflect” on your self-motivation, lifelong learning, and the need to encourage more people to follow the Golden Rule.

Rather than having societies of peoples feeling fearful or unmoored from their sense of self. Have them take time for leisure, meaning time for themselves to get anchored to Truth, to Source, for our Job then is to find Source in our lives the value it provides and then make it available to others. That can mean taking time to reach deep and discovering in yourself, the value you must share with the world.

“Westworld: Artificial Intelligence on the loose” by Mike Zonta, H.W., M.

westworld

Ran into a very attractive young barista yesterday at one or our local cafes in San Francisco.  He told me about Westworld, an HBO series about a futuristic amusement park which allows people to live out their fantasies, no matter how illicit, with “people” who are actually AIs.

My barista friend said the problem was distinguishing between the real people and the AIs.  And I said, “Yes, that’s going to be more and more important, isn’t it?”

Later I thought:  Is there anything more artificial than the ego?  It is [or they are, for we all have many egos] created out of whole cloth, totally artificial.  Nothing to do with real intelligence, which is consciousness itself, that is, consciousness conscious of itself as consciousness.

So our real problem, just like in Westworld, is distinguishing within ourselves, on a  second-by-second basis,  between artificial intelligence (the egos) and reality (our innate self, that which is underneath and behind our many artificial egos).

Cancer Researchers: ‘Don’t Get Cancer’ (theonion.com)

Researchers say having cancer is “bad,” and that people should, if possible, not get it

PHILADELPHIA—Calling the contraction of the disease “not good,” and saying that not having the illness is highly preferable to having it, oncologists representing the American Association for Cancer Research urged the U.S. populace Monday not to get cancer.

The panel, which consisted of medical experts at the top of their respective fields in cancer research, education, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, addressed the media for 45 minutes, saying that people’s best hope in terms of living a long, cancer-free life is to never develop cancerous cells in any part of the body, ever.

“After years of closely studying this illness and learning about how it grows and arbitrarily attacks vital organs throughout the body at an uncontrollable rate until one eventually dies, we have concluded that not having cancer is the best way to go,” said Dr. Robert Bertino, who specializes in molecular biology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. “If you are going to contract a harmful illness, get diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, meningitis, or even Type 2 diabetes. Anything but cancer. Cancer is just the worst.”

“A lot of people die from it,” he added. “It’s bad.”

According to specialists, people should not contract colon cancer, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, stage IV lung cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or any one of the roughly 200 other known forms of cancer. In addition, researchers confirmed that if it comes down to having terminal vs. non-terminal cancer, both are undesirable, but non-terminal is recommended.

However, oncologists said that even less threatening forms of the illness, such as non-melanoma skin cancer, should be steered clear of, with Bertino explaining that, “You have the surgery, you think it’s gone, it comes back for some reason, God knows why, and then it spreads to your lymph nodes, and that’s that.”

AACR officials went on to recommend that individuals should avoid having a family history of cancer, and that if people must grow tumors, they should make sure to only develop benign ones.

“When a patient comes in to visit me because they have malignant tissue in their breast or under their arm, the first thing I say is, ‘It would be much better if this hadn’t happened,’” said Dr. Sydney Drysdale, head of oncology at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. “I tell them I have studied this illness for decades, I’m the foremost expert when it comes to the spread of cancer, and then I look them in the eye and say cancer is literally the last thing I’d want in my body. I tell them it’s not a death sentence, but that it certainly could be. It’s cancer. You shouldn’t get it.”

“Sometimes patients will ask about clinical trials and I’ll say clinical trials wouldn’t even be an issue if you hadn’t gotten cancer in the first place,” Drysdale continued. “My best advice: Don’t have abnormal cells that uncontrollably divide and invade other tissues.”

Top cancer researchers throughout the country urged individuals to think of the benefits of not having cancer, such as being alive for a much longer period of time, feeling healthy, not putting your family through what will easily be the most difficult period of their entire lives, never feeling like you’re at the mercy of near impossible and hopeless science, and being able to die of natural causes and not cancer.

Moreover, while 10 out of 10 oncologists recommended never having cancer, 100 percent of people who do not currently have cancer reportedly said they are much happier because of it.

“If I could do it all over again, I would not have gotten cancer,” said 46-year-old Kevin Glanville, who is currently battling chronic myeloid leukemia. “Getting chemotherapy two times per week and constantly feeling weak and nauseous when there is a good chance the treatment won’t even work is much less attractive to me than, say, not dealing with those circumstances.”

“My doctor contacted some colleagues of his who work in the cancer research lab at the Mayo Clinic,” he continued, “and they said that, for the foreseeable future, if there is any way I cannot have cancer anymore I should do that.”

“Star Trends for December” by Robert McEwen, H.W., M.

robert_mcewen

Deep in each of us we intuitively know we are  a particle of infinity.  We are a native of eternity.  This is an androgynous self we were born with, and we each rebel against any label of a limited identification. 
 
This meta-principle is our very essence, the nature of all existence and offers us the very explanation of what we call Christmas.  The event is bast on astrology.  The three wise men were astrologers sin this myth, and found the star of Bethlehem, guiding  them with symbolic gifts to the holy being of Light:  The Christ Self.   We anthropomorphized  by creating Gods different cultures worshiped for years.  Then we created the myths to support the God we created, all coming from an astrological event There are the same myths of the birth and death and resurrection in the ancient myth of Horus, Krishna, and Mithra, all declaring the 3 days of darkness and then resurrection This can be tracked to the Winter Solstice, between Dec 20th and the 23rd, the 3 darkest days of the year, and the resurrection of the Sun God.  This is astrological and astronomical in nature.  The tradition of bonfires, candles came because those days were so dark.  Now we have the tradition of Christmas lights, trees, and candles and a burning fireplace fire from that Northern European tradition.  
 
Another tradition, the holy cross is the division of the four in total: equinoxes and solstices.  The annual calendar being divided into quarters by a cross.  This is  the origin of the cross we use. This symbol of rebirth of the Sun is as the Sun of the Universe the Bible chooses to name  “the Son of God!”
 
Let us universally celebrate “The Light” within and without.  Let us come together in the union of the Androgynous Christ Being.  (See the Androgynous Christ by Virginia Ramey Mollenkott)
 
So, we are going past either or:  male OR female, but more a unique pattern of the   male AND female, two as ONE infinite in expression.  Duality is exploded into infinite variety.  This is the “spark” of the creation that is unfolding now, and now, and now.  This eternal now is the portal by which we are continually reborn in this Christ Principle.  Enjoy freedom beyond labels.  The Sun being in the zodiac sign of Capricorn wants to define and limit something that cannot be limited or even named.  MetaSex is a CONSCIOUSNESS based identification.  
 
So enjoy your Universal Self this Christmas and celebrate your bright light.  Give willingly and freely.  Also accept openly and lovingly.
Robert

Bocaccio’s “The Decameron”

decameron

The Decameron is a collection of novellas by the 14th-century Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio (1313–1375). The book is structured as a frame story containing 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men sheltering in a secluded villa just outside Florence to escape the Black Death, which was afflicting the city. Boccaccio probably conceived the Decameron after the epidemic of 1348, and completed it by 1353. The various tales of love in The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic. Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary value and widespread influence (for example on Chaucer‘s The Canterbury Tales), it provides a document of life at the time. Written in the vernacular of the Florentine language, it is considered a masterpiece of classical early Italian prose.

“The Spiritual Mind” by Suzanne Deakins, H.W., M.

suzannedeak

People who have had “a religious experience” often report feelings of joy, peace and warmth, and new research has found that during these experiences, certain reward centers in the brain are activated.

The study found that, among devoutly religious people, spiritual feelings activate the same areas of the brain as other rewarding and pleasurable experiences, like love, sex and drugs.

“We’re just beginning to understand how the brain participates in experiences that believers interpret as spiritual, divine or transcendent,” study co-author Dr. Jeff Anderson, a neuroradiologist at the University of Utah School of Medicine, said in a statement. “In the last few years, brain imaging technologies have matured in ways that are letting us approach questions that have been around for millennia.”

In the study, the researchers analyzed the brains of 19 devout Mormons in their 20s and 30s who had completed 1.5 to two years of missionary service for the Mormon Church.

The participants spent an hour in a brain scanner, and were shown quotes and videos meant to evoke spiritual feelings. For example, participants were shown passages from the Book of Mormon as well as videos produced by the Mormon Church. They were also asked to pray in the scanner for 6 minutes. At several points during the session, participants were asked, “Are you feeling the spirit?” (This is a phrase used in the Mormon Church to refer to feelings of religious joy.) The responses ranged from “not feeling” to “very strongly feeling.”

The results showed that “feeling the spirit” was linked with activation of the nucleus accumbens, a brain region involved in processing feelings of reward. This activation peaked about 1 to 3 seconds before participants said they were experiencing peak spiritual feelings (which they indicated with the press of a button).

Spiritual feelings were also linked with activation of a region called the medial prefrontal cortex, which is thought to be involved in judgment and moral reasoning, as well as activation of brain regions linked with increased attention and alertness.

The researchers noted that more studies, including those that look at people from different religions and cultures, are needed in order to identify other brain regions linked with religious experiences.
