it happens sometimes that i’m asked if i’m not afraid to get killed. well, my usual response is that if one succeeds in it then all my problems will instantly be eliminated for ever, but the one’s problems will only begin for a long time to come, wishing to be in my place instead. thus, i’ve got nothing to worry about.
controlling own mind is no different from controlling own body, the same electrochemical processes, but controlling mind has less limitations.
statistics shows that religious people live in average longer, fact, but their net time spent on bs (bad science) dwarfs any gain, thus it is not benefit for life but a waste of life. stupid people are happier, sure, but if better is to be stupid to live longer is everyone’s choice. as one has said: “the fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one”.
one cannot tell the future. once the future is told anyone can change it. one can only know the future and watch it come true, if oneself don’t want to change it.
for me it’s like listening to the flat earthers, to listen to the global warming alarmists. yes the world has been warming a bit for a while (not anymore), so are you going to change the cycles of the sun and the activity of volcanos, etc.?! there are almost countless scientific reasons why i am confident we humans are not the cause, not only the fact of sun cycles and volcanos — it is impossible to count all the reasons for warming/cooling in any given time period (except in catastrophic events) because the oceans are a heat sink and are creating a time lag, but nevertheless the effect of humans on climate is tens of thousands of times smaller than the effects of natural events — i have written about it in detail many times for over ten years. after all, that may even be a good thing that the world is warming, because a single volcano with a big enough bang can bring an ice age to earth, so better we be warmed up enough to survive. about the pollution by humans it is another story — yes we can.. to destroy the balance in nature. but about climate.. it’s like the story of flat earth over and over again. please learn the real science, not political science with twisted facts and data just to fit the agenda of total control by government.
scientists desribe déjà vu as a feeling that a particular situation is familiar to you, even if you have never experienced it before, a false memory of a current happening. i disagree — it is the description of not the true déjà vu phenomenon. i have had many times the true déjà vu experience. when i was much younger i even put it on test, because the ‘already seen’ memory events were longer back then, allowing to change my actions and see what happens next. for example in one case i was sure i had seen the exact situation just a few weeks before in a dream and one woman was about to appear from behind the corner of the building, where i should have seen her up close. instead of going towards that corner of the building i turned, made a few steps and stopped to see if the woman appears. she did.. exactly the same woman, and walked exactly the same way as i saw it in my dream. these experiments with déjà vu (i didn’t know back then the term, but i knew the phenomenon exists and is nothing special) clarified to me that one can change the future which one has seen in dreams, or felt otherwise, which means that future is not predestined.
for years i have known about the memory training technique using imaginary sequences of events attaching them to required information to remember.. and it never attracted me regardless i am interested in improving my memory. not that i’ve got a bad memory but i do wish to make it better (i have my own techniques to train my brain). now i kind of get it why the above mentioned technique has never been interesting to me — it’s because you create imaginary made up sequences of events which may look like kind of hallucinations for your brain, creating more mess than benefit from memorized information. this my conclusion makes even more sense when i think back to the interview with the world champion of a memory competition who admitted that he was jobless for several years already not being able to find work. perhaps his general behavior was giving hints that his brain was full of meaningless made up stories (from endless trainings just to remember a small amount of necessary data). that’s my explanation now, for myself, why i never liked these specific memory training techniques. you better only acquire meaningful information and think logically, for your subconscious mind making sense of the information, supporting your thoughts and actions.
