I contend that we are both atheists, I just believe in one less god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all other possible gods, then you will know why I dismiss yours. - Stephen F. Roberts

Any god who creates a sentient being out of dirt, knowing the being will be damned to hell, should have left the dirt alone. - unknown

Healing Sounds

I've been doing some meditation lately.  Nothing formal like tai chi, chai tea stuff (Though I would like to study that), more like stretches and deep breathing while listening to old world music.   (celtic, native american, shakuhachi, recorders, etc).  I had some great relaxing music that I found on kazaa*, but I lost it all to a hard drive crash.  I lost a lot to a hard drive crash slash backup deletion, but that is another story.  Anyway, while grabbing some possible meditative stuff, I ran across some music that is supposed to alter the frequency of your brainwaves.  Apparently the brain operates at set frequency ranges depending on the activity.  The higher ranges are known a beta, and are used for critical thinking and analysis.  Alpha brainwaves are a bit slower, more relaxed state, theta is nearly a trance state, such as when you begin to daydream while doing a redundant task.  Theta is known to be a state with high levels of creativity.  Delta is the lowest state and is deep trance and sleep.

I have been trying these out and meditating really does help, even if it is just stretching, clearing your mind, and listening to relaxing music.  Whiles listening to the theta music I have been finding something interesting.  Several years ago I noticed that when someone paid attention to me, was kind to me, took the time to quiz me on my spelling test, I would get a great feeling on parts of my head.  The feeling if localized.  So much so that I can almost point out a specific area about a inch or so wide in certain places that feel this way.  I was told it could be endorphins, but this seems to localized.  Back to the theta tapes, I have found that I can more easily reproduce this feeling while listening to them.  I'm not sure if it has something to do with the state of mind, or the 3d effects of the music or what, but it is a great feeling, and I want to do some more experimenting with it.  States of mind is a very interesting topic to me.

*My personal feelings about sharing music: If you find something you like, throw a couple bucks to the author and by the cd or go to a site selling the mp3 and buy the songs you like.

For your healing humour for the day try out the site bash.org.  Very funny chat logs from IRC.  Here is a sample:

<ohm> damn
<ohm> FUCK
<ohm> DAMN
<ohm> i was just in an AIM convo with a chick, and my grandmother's window pops up
<ohm> FUCK
<ohm> i go like this to her
<ohm> "i want to suck on your clit"
<ohm> FUCK


Nice eh?

P.S. I am hoping to find a better layout for this site, but I am just so busy or lazy or something.

I'm a computer engineer for a well known corporation, but my hobby is debunking myths and exploring the human mind. I'm a former fanatical christian. In this blog I expose the foolishness of many of the traditions and ideologies of Americans and humans in general. Oh, and yes, I still have my pointy ears. :)
