Einstein & Tesla 2018

What will 2018 bring?

Ten years from today – we will be in 2028.

Could you imagine? Is that the future or what.

I wish you peace, long life, and joy wherever you go.

Happy 2018!

Here is some facts found by BBC.com about Tesla and Einstein, a rather curious read indeed.
Celebrated inventor and physicist Nikola Tesla swore by toe exercises – every night, he’d repeatedly ‘squish’ his toes, 100 times for each foot, according to the author Marc J Seifer. While it’s not entirely clear exactly what that exercise involved, Tesla claimed it helped to stimulate his brain cells.

The most prolific mathematician of the 20th Century, Paul Erdos, preferred a different kind of stimulant: amphetamine, which he used to fuel 20-hour number benders. When a friend bet him $500 that he couldn’t stop for a month, he won but complained “You’ve set mathematics back a month”.

(28 EDITOR’s NOTE) Hey guys – don’t do amphetamines. It does help some people, but only if you suffer without it. My experience is it effects long term memory. If you were a real brilliant person you would use herbs, medicine, and healing elements in the highest regard. Try to avoid chemicals if at all possible. **

Newton, meanwhile, bragged about the benefits of celibacy. When he died in 1727, he had transformed our understanding of the natural world forever and left behind 10 million words of notes; he was also, by all accounts, still a virgin (Tesla was also celibate, though he later claimed he fell in love with a pigeon).

Like it or not, our daily habits have a powerful impact on our brains

Many of the world’s most brilliant scientific minds were also fantastically weird. From Pythagoras’ outright ban on beans to Benjamin Franklin’s naked ‘air baths’, the path to greatness is paved with some truly peculiar habits.

But what if these are more than superficial facts? Scientists are increasingly realising that intelligence is less about sheer genetic luck than we tend to think. According to the latest review of the evidence, around 40% of what distinguishes the brainiac’s from the blockheads in adulthood is environmental. Like it or not, our daily habits have a powerful impact on our brains, shaping their structure and changing the way we think.

Of all history’s great minds, arguably the master of combining genius with unusual habits was Albert Einstein – so what better person to study for clues to mind-enhancing behaviours to try ourselves? He taught us how to squeeze energy out of atoms, so maybe, just maybe, he might be able to teach us a thing or two about how to squeeze the most out of our tiny mortal brains. Could there be any benefits in following Einstein’s sleep, diet, and even fashion choices?

10 HOURS OF SLEEP AND ONE-SECOND NAPS

It’s common knowledge that sleep is good for your brain – and Einstein took this advice more seriously than most. He reportedly slept for at least 10 hours per day – nearly one and a half times as much as the average American today (6.8 hours). But can you really slumber your way to a sharper mind?

The author John Steinbeck once said: “It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.”

Many of the most radical breakthroughs in human history, including the periodic table, the structure of DNA and Einstein’s theory of special relativity, have supposedly occurred while their discoverer was unconscious. The latter came to Einstein while he was dreaming about cows being electrocuted. But is this really true?

Back in 2004, scientists at the University of Lubeck, Germany, tested the idea with a simple experiment. First they trained volunteers to play a number game. Most gradually got the hang of it with practice, but by far the quickest way to improve was to uncover a hidden rule. When the students were tested again eight hours later, those who had been allowed to sleep were more than twice as likely to gain insight into the rules than those who had remained awake.

Those who have more spindle events tend to have greater ‘fluid intelligence’

When we fall asleep, the brain enters a series of cycles. Every 90-120 minutes the brain fluctuates between light sleep, deep sleep and a phase associated with dreaming, known as Rapid Eye Movement (REM), which until recently was thought to play the leading role in learning and memory. But this isn’t the full story. “Non-REM sleep has been a bit of a mystery, but we spend about 60% of our night in this type of sleep,” says Stuart Fogel, a neuroscientist at the University of Ottawa.

Non-REM sleep is characterized by bursts of fast brain activity, so called ‘spindle events’ because of the spindle-shaped zigzag the waves trace on an EEG. A normal night’s sleep will involve thousands of these, each lasting no longer than a few seconds. “This is really the gateway to other stages of sleep – the more you sleep, the more of these events you’ll have,” he says.

Spindle events begin with a surge of electrical energy generated by the rapid firing of structures deep in the brain. The main culprit is the thalamus, an oval shaped region which acts as the brain’s main ‘switching centre’, sending incoming sensory signals in the right direction. While we’re sleeping, it acts like an internal earplug, scrambling external information to help you stay asleep. During a spindle event, the surge travels up to the brain’s surface and then back down again to complete a loop.

Intriguingly, those who have more spindle events tend to have greater ‘fluid intelligence’ – the ability to solve new problems, use logic in new situations, and identify patterns – the kind Einstein had in spades. “They don’t seem related to other types of intelligence, such as the ability to memorize facts and figures, so it’s really specific to these reasoning skills,” says Fogel. This ties in nicely with Einstein’s disdain for formal education and advice to “never memorize anything which you can look up”.

And though the more you sleep, the more spindle events you’ll have, this doesn’t necessarily prove that more sleep is beneficial. It’s a chicken and egg scenario: do some people have more spindle events because they are smart, or are they smart because they have more spindle events? The jury is still out, but a recent study showed that night-time sleep in women – and napping in men – can improve reasoning and problem solving skills. Crucially, the boost to intelligence was linked to the presence of spindle events, which only occurred during night-time sleep in women and daytime slumbers in men.

It’s not yet known why spindle events would be helpful, but Fogel thinks it may have something to do with the regions which are activated. “We’ve found that the same regions that generate spindles – the thalamus and the cortex [the brain’s surface] – well, these are the areas which support the ability to solve problems and apply logic in new situations,” he says.

Luckily for Einstein, he also took regular naps. According to apocryphal legend, to make sure he didn’t overdo it he’d recline in his armchair with a spoon in his hand and a metal plate directly beneath. He’d allow himself to drift off for a second, then – bam! – the spoon would fall from his hand and the sound of it hitting the plate would wake him up.

DAILY WALKS

Einstein’s daily walk was sacred to him. While he was working at Princeton University, New Jersey, he’d walk the mile and a half journey there and back. He followed in the footsteps of other diligent walkers, including Darwin who went for three 45 minute walks every day.

These constitutionals weren’t just for fitness – there’s mountains of evidence that walking can boost memory, creativity and problem-solving. For creativity at least, walking outside is even better. But why?

When you think about it, it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Walking distracts the brain from more cerebral tasks, and forces it to focus on putting one foot in front of the other and not falling over. Enter ‘transient hypofrontality’ – translated into basic English, this impressive mouthful basically means temporarily toning down the activity in certain parts of the brain. In particular, the frontal lobes, which are involved in higher processes such as memory, judgement and language.

By turning it down a notch, the brain adopts a totally different style of thinking – one which may lead to insights you wouldn’t get at your desk. There isn’t any evidence for this explanation of walking’s benefits yet, but it’s a tantalizing idea.

EATING SPAGHETTI

So what do geniuses eat? Alas, it’s not clear what fueled Einstein’s extraordinary mind, though the internet somewhat dubiously claims it was spaghetti. He did once joke that his favorite things about Italy were “spaghetti and [mathematician] Levi-Civita”, so we’ll go with that.

Though carbohydrates have got a bad rep, as always, Einstein was spot on. It’s well known that the brain is a food-guzzling greedy guts, consuming 20% of the body’s energy though it only accounts for 2% of its weight (Einstein’s may have been even less – his brain weighed just 1,230g, compared to an average of around 1,400g). Just like the rest of the body, the brain prefers to snack on simple sugars, such as glucose, which have been broken down from carbohydrates. Neurons require an almost-continuous supply and will only accept other energy sources when it’s really desperate. And therein lies a problem.

Despite this sweet tooth, the brain has no way of storing any energy, so when blood glucose levels drop, it quickly runs out. “The body can release some from its own glycogen stores by releasing stress hormones such as cortisol, but these have side-effects,” says Leigh Gibson, a lecturer in psychology and physiology at the University of Roehampton.

These include the familiar light-headedness and confusion we feel when we skip dinner. One study found that those on low carbohydrate diets have slower reaction times and reduced spatial memory – though only in the short-term (after a few weeks, the brain will adapt to salvaging energy from other sources, such as protein).

Sugars can give the brain a valuable boost, but unfortunately this doesn’t mean binging on spaghetti is a good idea. “Typically the evidence suggests that about 25g of carbohydrate is beneficial, but double that and you may actually impair your ability to think,” says Gibson. For perspective, that’s around 37 strands of spaghetti, which is a lot less than it sounds (around half as much as the recommended portion). “It’s not as simple a story as it sounds,” says Gibson.

SMOKING A PIPE

Today, the many health risks of smoking are widely known, so this is not a habit that it would be wise to follow. But Einstein was a hardened pipe smoker, known as much around campus for the cloud of smoke which followed him as for his theories. He famously loved to smoke, believing it “contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” He’d even pick cigarette butts off the street and stuff the remaining tobacco into his pipe.

Not really the behavior of a genius, but in his defense, though evidence had been mounting since the 1940s, tobacco wasn’t publicly linked to lung cancer and other illnesses until 1962 – seven years after his death.

Today the risks are no secret – smoking stops brain cells forming, thins the cerebral cortex (the wrinkled outer layer responsible for consciousness) and starves the brain of oxygen. It’s fair to say that Einstein was clever despite this habit – not because of it.

But there is one final mystery. An analysis of 20,000 adolescents in the United States, whose habits and health were followed for 15 years, found that irrespective of age, ethnicity or education, more intelligent children grow up to smoke more cigarettes, more frequently, than the rest of us. Scientists still don’t know why this is, though intriguingly it’s not true everywhere – in the UK, smokers tend to have lower IQs.

Who needs socks? They're generally relatively unnecessary (Credit: Getty Images)

NO SOCKS

No list of Einstein’s eccentricities would be complete without a mention of his passionate aversion to socks. “When I was young,” he wrote in a letter to his cousin – and later, wife – Elsa, “I found out that the big toe always ends up making a hole in a sock. So I stopped wearing socks.” Later in life, when he couldn’t find his sandals he’d wear Elsa’s sling backs instead.

As it turns out, rocking the hipster look probably didn’t do Einstein any favors. Regrettably, there haven’t been any studies looking directly at the impact of going sock-less, but changing into casual clothing, as opposed to a more formal outfit, has been linked to poor performance on tests of abstract thinking.

And what better way to end that with some advice from the man himself. “The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing,” he told LIFE magazine in 1955.

Failing that, you might try some toe exercises. Who knows – they might just work. And aren’t you dying to find out?

Thanksgiving 2017

My good friends at positivehealthwellness have asked me to share a wonderful menu with you all this year.

What a year this has been, I have been shown how to be humble and to show compassion, from our creator.

How to forgive others, and let go of the past.

This year was absolutely crucial in my growth as a person. I give thanks to God, my family, my friends, and the ones who believe in me.

Well, may you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving 2017 and enjoy a few menu suggestions.

Not sure what to make this year?

Here is the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner menu that goes through absolutely everything you need for this year.

Don’t forget the sides and get a turkey dinner to die for!

For the Turkey: 3-Way Roulade

Why not make a Turkey roulade instead of a traditional bird this year. There are a few benefits to this. You will know that all the meat is cooked before you start serving everything up and you create smaller portions for everyone. We always end up overeating at Thanksgiving, and it’s not great for the waistline.

You will also get to avoid the big turkeys. You just need some turkey breasts, helping to keep the costs down.

The 3-way roulade offers three different stuffings for your bird. You can do all three if you’d like, but make sure you stock up on extra turkey breasts. This recipe will give you enough turkey for one filling of choice.

Ingredients:

  • 2 skinless, boneless turkey breasts
  • 1 filling of choice (fillings below)
  • 1 1/2tbsp oil of choice
  • Salt and black pepper, for seasoning
  • Fennel-apple filling ingredients:
  • 1 fennel bulb, chopped
  • 2 apples, cored and chopped
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2tbsp butter
  • 2tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped
  • 2tbsp fennel fronds, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Bacon and Mushroom Filling Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1lb mushrooms of choice, chopped
  • 1 bunch of scallions, chopped
  • 1/3 cup of fresh parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup of dry white wine
  • 3tbsp seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Sausage and Cornbread Filling Ingredients:

  • 8oz of Italian sausage, out of the casing
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups of cornbread, crumbled
  • 1tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • ½ cup of chicken stock
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Method:

  • Preheat your oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with foil
  • Butterfly the turkey breasts, avoiding slicing all the way through
  • Wrap one open breast with cling film and pound to about ¼ inch thick
  • Season the breast with salt and pepper and then repeat with the second
  • Make your filling (method for each below) and then spread half into a turkey breast, pressing into the meat
  • Roll the turkey breast tightly and secure with butcher’s twine, tucking the ends in
  • Repeat with the other turkey breast, roll both breasts into oil, and season with more salt and pepper
  • Place on the baking sheet and cook for 40-45 minutes
  • Stand for 10 minutes and then slice to serve

Fennel and Apple Filling Method:

  • Cook the fennel bulb, shallots, butter, and apple in a skillet over a medium heat until golden
  • Stir in the fennel fronds and tarragon and then season

Bacon and Mushroom Filling Method:

  • Cook the bacon for 6-8 minutes in a skillet over a medium heat
  • Place on a plate and pour away the dripping, apart from 1 1/2tbsp
  • Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Add in the parsley and scallions, cooking for another 2 minutes
  • Add the wine and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until the wine evaporates
  • Stir in the breadcrumbs and mix everything together, seasoning with the salt and pepper

Sausage and Cornbread Filling Method:

  • Cook the sausage for 5-7 minutes in a skillet over a medium to high heat, breaking the sausage into smaller pieces
  • Add the garlic and cook for another minute
  • Add in the thyme and cornbread and then remove from the heat
  • Stir in the chicken stock to fully combine, and then season with the salt and pepper

For the Sides: Make Rosemary Monkey Bread Stuffing

Even with the stuffed turkey, people will want stuffing on the sides. There’s just something about Thanksgiving that calls for a delicious stuffing to sit on the side to work with the rest of your food options.

This rosemary monkey bread stuffing is perfect. The kids will love the name, and they’ll want to help you make it. Just expect questions about cooking monkeys when you have smaller children!

Ingredients:

  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 4tbsp butter
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2lb rosemary focaccia, cubed (if you can’t find the bread, you can use 1 1/2tbsp chopped fresh rosemary)

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 375F and butter a springform pan
  • Cook the onion and celery with the butter in a skillet for 8-10 minutes over a medium heat
  • Transfer to a bowl, allowing to cool for five minutes
  • Whisk the eggs and chicken stock until combined in a bowl and then season with the salt and pepper, and then add the onion and celery mixture
  • Stir in the focaccia
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the bread, is golden brown
  • Cool for 5 minutes and then remove from the pan

This is much better served warm. If you want to use leftovers, reheat in the microwave or oven.

Vegetable Side: Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Nobody likes Brussels sprouts on their own. While you’ll want to get the health benefits of sprouts, you’ll want to make them taste amazing. This gratin is the perfect way to do that.

Ingredients:

  • 3lb of Brussels sprouts, halved and trimmed
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of half and half
  • 9oz of Gruyere cheese, grated and divided
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 375F and butter a baking dish
  • Fill a pan with salted water and boil the sprouts for 5-8 minutes
  • Drain the sprouts and rinse with cold water to quickly cool, and then lay them out on a baking sheet lined with paper towels
  • In a saucepan, cook the butter and garlic over medium heat for a minute and then sprinkle with the flour
  • Whisk the mixture for a minute, before adding in the half and half while whisking
  • Simmer for 6-7 minutes, whisking regularly to help thicken
  • Remove from the heat and then add in 6oz of the cheese, whisking, and season with the salt and pepper
  • Pour everything into a baking dish and top with the remaining cheese, and then bake for 25-30 minutes

Allow cooling a little before serving. The kids will barely notice that you’ve served them Brussels sprouts. If you want to go one step further, you can chop the sprouts after cooking to help mix in with the cheese. It’s not quite as filling, but you’ll disguise the fact that you have sprouts!

Potato Side: Slow Cooked Mash

Mashed potatoes

Mash potatoes are a must-have for your Thanksgiving dinner. While they are well cooked normally, these will help to eliminate some of the stress from the day.

Ingredients:

  • 4lb of potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups of chicken stock
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1/3 cup of chives, fresh and chopped
  • ½ cup of milk, warmed
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Method:

  • In a slow cooker, cook the potatoes with the chicken stock and salt on high for up to 3 hours or low for up to 5 hours
  • Drain the stock and put the potatoes back into the slow cooker
  • Add the sour cream and mash to preferred consistency
  • Fold in the chives and milk, adding more milk if necessary
  • Season to taste and serve, topping with chives if you’d like

You will have people asking for seconds. You may find that this is a Sunday roast mash that you make a lot more regularly than Thanksgiving!

A Side Dish with a Difference: Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Salad

Potato and egg salad is commonly made, but you can opt for something a little different this Thanksgiving. You want to opt for a cauliflower and sweet potato salad instead. You get a mixture of flavors packed with a healthy punch.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2lbs sweet potatoes, chopped into wedges
  • 1 cauliflower head, chopped into florets
  • 7tbsp oil of choice, divided
  • 3tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 8 cups of mixed lettuces, torn
  • 2/3 cup of pomegranate seeds
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with foil
  • Mix the potatoes, cauliflower, and 3tbsp oil, seasoning with the salt and pepper
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes
  • Whisk the rest of the oil in the vinegar, seasoning with some salt and pepper
  • Add the lettuce, pomegranate, and roasted vegetables and coat everything

With the Brussels sprouts and this potato salad, you will not need any more vegetables on the side. If you want them, just grab some frozen veggies like carrots and peas. You’ll find your guests won’t be that interested in them though.

Time for Dessert: Sweet Potato Snickerdoodles

Whoever said dessert has to be unhealthy and full of sugar? These alternative Snickerdoodles are the way to feed the sweet tooth without feeling like you’re forcing health onto your guests.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4tsp salt
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 1/4tsp cream of tartar
  • 3 1/2tsp cinnamon, divided
  • 1 cup of butter, sat at room temperature
  • 1 can of sweet potato puree
  • 2/3 pt of confectioners’ sugar
  • 2tsp vanilla extract, preferably pure
  • 1 ½ cups of granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can of dulce de leche

Method:

  • Whisk the flour with the salt, baking soda, 2tsp cinnamon, and cream of tartar
  • In a separate bowl, beat the butter with the puree, 1 cup of granulated sugar, all the confectioners’ sugar, and all the vanilla extract until fluffy
  • Add the eggs to the sweet potato puree mixture one at a time, beating until each one is blended
  • Add the flour mixture until everything is combined
  • Cover and chill for at least 2 hours to overnight
  • Preheat the oven to 375F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
  • Stir the rest of the cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl
  • Roll up the dough into 1tbsp balls and then roll into the sugared cinnamon
  • Arrange on the baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes
  • Cook for a minute and then place on wire racks to continue cooling
  • Spread the dulce de leche on the flat side of the cookies and sandwich two together

Second Dessert: Pumpkin Cookie Crust Cheesecake

While the sweet potato sandwich cookies are great, they’re just not quite a dessert, right? You want a pie or cake that you can cut into. This is where this second dessert will help. You get a mixture of needs and wants with the pumpkin, the cheesecake, and a delicious cookie crust. Make sure you have room for a second slice. You’ll want it!

Ingredients:

  • 12 pecan sandy cookies, plus extra to garnish
  • ½ cup of pecans, roasted and salted preferably
  • 3tbsp butter, melted
  • 2tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3/4tsp salt, divided
  • 8oz cream cheese, left at room temperature
  • 8oz of sour cream, left at room temperature
  • 1 cup of light brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 15 oz of pure pumpkin puree
  • 2tsp vanilla extract, preferably pure
  • 1 1/2tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2tsp ground nutmeg

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F and place the rack in the middle
  • Place the pecans and cookies in a blender and pulse until ground finely
  • Add the butter, granulated sugar, a 1/4tsp salt, and pulse until combined
  • Press the mixture into the bottom of a springform pan and then bake for 10-12 minutes
  • Allow to cool completely in the pan and then wrap the pan with aluminum foil
  • Reduce the oven to 300F
  • Beat the cheese with the brown sugar and sour cream until smooth and then add the eggs one at a time, beating each one
  • Add the rest of the ingredients with the remaining salt, and beat until blended
  • Pour the mixture into the cookie crust and bake for 1hr 10 minutes; the edges will be set, but the middle will still be wobbly
  • Turn the oven off and leave the cheesecake in with door closed for an hour
  • Remove from the oven and loosen the sides of the cheesecake from the pan with a knife gently, keeping the pan intact
  • Allow to cook for an hour and then cover and chill for at least 8 hours

Only after chilling should you remove from the pan. This helps to keep the setting, so the cheesecake doesn’t end up an unserviceable mess! Serve with some of the pecans, cookies, and a bit of whipped cream!

My thanks to Danielle and her team. Have a wonderful Holiday!

Wisdom, Justice, and Love

Vegas_2017_Wisdom

Just celebrated the United States birthday of being 241 years old! Proud to be here but I really need to travel more. It really pays to know your history, it guides you into sorting out the core values of life and to gear toward what’s really important.

Still learning to go beyond jack of all trades – but things seem scattered picking a single thing to specialize in. It’s good to know, and wisdom is acquired very slowly. I talk to the older crowd to get direction with that.

Getting more organized and being stern to core values are key to directing inner happiness. To many of you reading this, just reading through some previous posts will assist in your own health and overall wellness.

The number 28 is very fascinating,  I continue to grow along side of concepts with astrology, meshing with math. Exploring the beauty of geometry all around us is very rewarding.

Also, wisdom, justice, and love are 3 things that inspire to build a strong moral guideline, that helped me stay positive and strong.

Continue to stay healthy and live for those core values.

Rick and Morty Returns

Rick and Morty VR is being rated one of the funnest games of all time.

Rick_and_Morty_VR

Greetings in April – where is my spring weather? You know how the sun feels warm on your neck, but your hands still cold because of the breeze? Yep – bring more of that!

It feels like this year will be a milder summer – not reaching so many records –  not until August anyway.

Personally things have been getting rough – some areas are improving, others are still lacking. Really though my overall well-being and health are increasing. That’s mostly what I have been putting time into. I have been giving serious thought into continuing my education.

Just like that new song, don’t worry about the past, just have the time of your life. Also I am humbled by all the good happening around me – not sure if it helps me, but I am waiting on Karma with a wad of it somewhere.

Anyway – back to Rick and Morty.

My favorite animated show currently – the first episode about the Mulan Fry Sauce made me laugh so hard man – I swear that show is just insanely cool. I can relate to it on so many levels.  Can’t wait to see the entire season.

So the VR game is possibly the most funnest game ever made for the Oculus Rift or the HTC vibe. 500 bucks – I am looking into investing in one of these – soon – fry sauce.

The Rooster (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: /) is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac (and similar zodiacal systems) related to the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Rooster is represented by the Earthly Branch character . T

In Chinese philosophy, fire (Chinese: ; pinyin: huǒ) is the prosper of the matter, or the matter’s prosperity stage.[1] Fire is the second phase of Wu Xing.

Fire is yang in character. Its motion is upward and its energy is expansive.

Fire is associated with Summer, the South, the planet Mars, the colour red (associated with extreme luck), hot weather, daylight, and the Vermilion Bird (Zhu Que) in the Four Symbols (which is associated with a red phoenix in Western culture).

Let’s make this year count !!

The Mandela Effect

***UPDATE #2*** Feb 5th, 2017

Big thanks to the reddit group who are pioneer’s of the aftermath.

Also the James Bond movie, Moonraker, that young blonde girl with pigtail braids she reminded you in a weird way about “Jaws” ?

Great but NOW – there is no such scene because blonde girl, Dolly – no longer wears braces in the movie at all…

“It’s not just me who is blown away by this. I asked Roberta Lipp, author of The Ultimate James Bond Fan Book. She too was flabbergasted by the “disappearance” of the braces.

It makes no sense for the braces to be gone, both visually from memory and as movie plot device the braces are the reason the beauty bonds with the beast, it makes sense organically to the plot and it’s a visual gag to boot. I know this is not a confabulation in my head and several other people have backed me on it.” (SOURCE)

THE MANDELA EFFECT IS REAL

nelson_mandela

What is the Mandela effect?

mandela_rezz

Basically it works like this – if you remember something a certain way, and are confident with the way you remember it, but when you check now – it is different. Altered timeline? Digital hacking? Is this a cover up on a government level? I try to be reasonable and explain things logically – a different timeline doesn’t sound that scientific does it??

It's not Luke, I am your father. Its - NO - I AM YOUR FATHER... Huh?
It’s not Luke, I am your father. Its – NO – I AM YOUR FATHER… Huh?

When I was a child my dad owned a video store in the late 80’s and through the 90’s. I saw all sorts of weird, odd, one off movies. One of them was called Shazaam. I saw the movie, it was real. Now what happened was after a few years this other movie came out with Shaq called Kazaam. Same idea almost, but the movie I saw had two kids – boy and girl.

The Shaq movie only had 1 kid and it was a boy. Now being younger – there was no google or DVDs – and I think I misplaced the VHS because I never saw it again. Forgot all about it. Then last year – I saw other people bring it up on Reddit. I was SHOCKED – because I SAW THE MOVIE!

Then in December some fans asked Sinbad on twitter – and he DENIES ever making the movie. How is this even possible? At first I thought the movie sucked so bad he wanted to get rid of it. He had enough money to buy all the VHS copies and pay off google and whoever to remove any / all digital content. That was the first guess. And then all of a sudden I see the Ford logo altered, also not to mention Mandela himself died in prison in the 80’s. But in our timeline he lived till 95, became president, and died in 2013. Random fact, thenumber28 came online in 2013.

Also everything they mention on Mandela I remember – it was Berenstein Bears. It was Chic-Fil-A – I remember that Pikachu had a freaken black stripe! Google autocorrects me like I AM WRONG, but no – I am not – it was altered!?

Pikachu_Stripe_mandela

The idea is if something was changed in the past – it created a ripple effect, changing things SLIGHTLY – but this didn’t alter our memories or minds.

When I asked my dad about this – he called it ridiculous and could care less. But – still – where is that Kazaam movie that I saw??

mona_lisa_mandela

Seems to me there are two realities that merged. If you remember the old way, your from reality B. Anyone who doesn’t remember any differences at all are from reality A.

A OR B ?
CHOOSE YOUR REALITY

More pics and info on this – I also believe that because I really did see Sinbad’s movie – that somehow the number28 itself was drawn to the altered timeline.

I understand it’s hard to trust the human mind – slight changes might just be damaged memories. However I am convinced that there is more to this story, and so do thousands of others who are around the same age as me.

Mandela Quotes

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.

The Number 28

Posting on the 28th day of December 2016. The energy has brought me back to my humble site yet again. Unbelievable.

The election has produced some unexpected results. Very proud of the democratic process and of my country. I can only hope for the best, but I like what I have been seeing lately when I follow politics.

The direction of this site always changes as I do, and seems the course is changing yet again. More about this on my next post.

It has been a pleasure to post on this site, to dream bigger and inspire greater. I am going to do another post on the first 28th day of 2017. I plan to continue the site on my terms, during times when my thoughts have come together full circle. May you all by the grace of god find your destiny and live everyday to the fullest.

This is the last post in 2016, as I look back through all this content it leaves a trail on my mind and conscience – to follow if I ever loose my way.

Never let people take your spirit, never give up, never forget that.

Election Royal Rumble

**UPDATE**

WE ARE AGAINST RIOTING AND THREATS AGAINST OUR HOME THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

We are in a moment of history where I dare not predict the results.

election_royal_rumble

Tough choices ahead – right now – ether way seems like an utterly disastrous tipping point!

Picking one group over the other almost seems like social suicide to me. Does anyone else feel like that??

In the end, who will win the Election Royal Rumble?

royal_rumble

First offI voted for Obama in both terms – because one reason was I felt John Mccain and Sarah Palin were not what the country needed at the time, so I decided not to vote for them.

In the 2004 election with John Kerry, I sided with Bush.

2004_election_member

My personal take is that we may have come to a crossroads.

This might be stretching it but right now I feel we must choose between the lesser of the two evils. 

I love this country, and I love all minorities. I like both parties and respect all religions. 

But we are really in trouble. With all the drug companies out there – pushing pills for profits – America is asleep at the wheel. And right before we go off the cliff, America has opened up one eye – all bloodshot and startled – because we are waking up out of our coma.

God only knows I bet on the underdog too much. Most of those bets are loss causes – but I value ambition and determination.

So anyway – what I find interesting is how hateful one side is over to the other.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

For some strange reason, this reminds me of the civil war. 156 years ago.

google_civil_war

Republican Abraham Lincoln was our anti-slavery president. The election of Lincoln in 1860 caused seven southern states to form the Confederate States of America. Then four more states joined after the war started.

Fast forward on April 14, 1865 after the Confederate General surrendered thus ending the war, only then was Lincoln assassinated. History shows we are not too kind to people who make a difference. Who remembers John F. Kennedy? What was his problem?

I wonder – what would our country be like if Lincoln lost the election?

Why did so many people believe in slavery back then? Why did they not see the cruelness – the injustice – or the theft of humanity of it at all?

Human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience. They should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Whatever the political environment – you would think that this slavery issue would be a no-brainer. But – it seems the social stigma of the idea persisted – and it was resisted at every, single, turn.

They wanted things to stay the same, period.

I personally despise change – but – it is a fact of life that everything will eventually change.

2.4 million soldiers were killed in that war. Was that war even necessary?

When I think about different ideas, I think about that John F. Kennedy dude. Why was he killed again? What was his crime?

Oh, thinking outside the box is bad. Baaad.                                                                  Did someone want to change things again?  Hmm.

Personally – we have two bad choices. Libertarian sounds good about now.

Now whatever happens, I will support the chosen candidate. Voting with pure conscience I placed a vote to the best choice I felt to be good for me and my country.

This website is built mostly to inspire others and to guide myself. I put my money, time, and energy in this – because I believe in it. It is also my awareness to others – and a portal where I can channel my passions and express myself.

I also wanted to make sure you were all aware – that the Fed has not raised interest rates. I will spare you the ironic facts of this issue – but why they have waited so long, god only knows.

But we face many problems on the horizon that need to be seriously tackled. We have kicked the can so far down the road – it is mind-boggling to think we can’t really find solutions to some of these problems. Is nobody smart enough to do some adding?

After the election – I will discuss the aftermath. With the new President Elect – what really needs to happen in the next decade.

I try not to make this site too religious or too political – but it happens. Oh – so here is some troubling info.

In 12 years – we will have exhausted our reserves in 2028 – bankrupting medicade. SOURCE

So that means – unless we really do something – you and your children won’t have it.

In 30 years it will be all gone – even social security. Social Security and disability trust fund reserves are estimated to run out in 2034 – 18 years from now. When the kids get in highschool…

Ya I know – nobody really cares about the numbers, the fine print… – we got other problems…

So there are other pressing matters. Maybe like – supreme court judges – immigration – culture – racism – suppression of facts – and the kitchen sink while were at it.

I honestly can’t tell you really what the hell is really going on. I have a bright idea – but no cigar.

All I know is – we need both sides – all people – to come together and TRY HARDER.

We need to stop ripping people’s heads off when they think differently (thanks Jobs) – and need to find civilized solutions and solve these problems.

Realize that the only way America will lose – is when the nation is truly divided and tears itself apart from the inside.

It happened 156 years ago during the civil war. The nation was divided, and it costs our country dearly. From what I was reading in history around that time it was hell on earth. I really hope in this case, that I am totally wrong.

Don’t let your kids look you in the eye years from now and say – why did you let it all go?

mlk-statue-quote

We desperately need to make the tough choices today to have a worthy future and a destiny that we can all be proud of. Even during times of great uncertainty – may our prodigious courage shine through.

Thanks for reading everyone, we love you, and please vote on Election Day 2016 !

Issac Newton

newton-photo

Issac Newton was one of the greatest scientists of all time.

He laid out the three laws of motion in his masterpiece Principia Mathematica. He discovered the law of universal gravitation, the famous inverse-distance-squared law. Also he wrote deeply about light and optics after performing his own original experiments on light.

This guy invented calculus. He rejected the authority of the great Greek philosopher Aristotle and promoted experiment-based science. He challenged the established laws, theories, and ideas.

What was interesting to me was he was a very deep believer in a higher power. I never knew that..newton-photo-pound

He spent decades delving in the secrets of alchemy and science, but even longer studying the Bible, theology and church history.

Newton wrote 1.3 million words about theology and Biblical prophecy. He was a Christian. This all amounts to far more words written about  theology than all of Newton’s  writings about science combined.

His passion for the study of God’s word the Bible and it’s history was equally as consuming as all his interests in science and physics.

At the time of his death, he left more than a million words of notes on the Bible.

Six years after his death, Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John was published. Not only was Isaac a great scientist but also a dedicated student of the Bible.

One of Newton’s writings about the bible I will share with you.

Newton found multiple examples throughout history of reformations by God:

The worship which is due to this God we are to give to no other nor to ascribe anything absurd or contradictions to his nature or actions lest we be found to blaspheme him or to deny him or to make a step towards atheism or irreligion. . . .

For as often as mankind has swerved from them, God has made a reformation. When the sons of Adam erred and the thoughts of their heart became evil continually, God selected Noah to people a new world. And when the posterity of Noah transgressed and began to invoke dead men,

God selected Abraham and his posterity. And when they transgressed in Egypt God reformed them by Moses. And when they relapsed to idolatry and immorality, God sent Prophets to reform them and punished them by the Babylonian captivity. And when they that returned from captivity, mixed human inventions with the law of Moses under the name of traditions, and laid the stress of religion not upon the acts of the mind, but upon outward acts and ceremonies, God sent Christ to reform them.

And when the nation received him not, God called the Gentiles. And now the Gentiles have corrupted themselves, we may expect that God in due time will make a new reformation. And in all the reformations of religion hitherto made, the religion in respect of God and our neighbor is one and the same religion . . . so that this is the oldest religion in the world.

Aristotle and Plato lived about four hundred years before Christ and their impact on Western culture has been considerable. Newton was certainly heavily influenced by Jesus Christ and the early Christian writers, for he quoted them abundantly in his writings. Newton was born on the same day in 1642 that Galileo passed away, and he used many of Galileo’s findings in developing his famous laws of motion. Isaac Newton died in 1727.

Real quick – Galileo Galilei, though famous for his scientific achievements in astronomy, mathematics, and physics, and infamous for his controversy with the church was, in fact, a devout Christian who saw not a divorce of religion and science but only a healthy marriage: “God is known by nature in his works, and by doctrine in his revealed word.”

Very inspiring that the father of modern science would be so interested in the word. My personal take on the bible is many kings and rulers have tried to destroy it. You were killed if you had possession of one. Somehow it survived thousands of years. Coincidence?

We respect whatever you believe, all religions, all races, all people with a beating heart. However – I find it striking that these men who were so brilliant wrote about the word.

I also do not belong to a church at this time, the word of god is in your heart, your blood, and it needs not money or showmanship but real love and belief in the light.

“What we know is a drop, what we don’t know is an ocean.” – ISSAC NEWTON
