    How to Harness the Dark Side of the Force

    Yoda spoke of the destructive power of anger, but not of the constructive power. There are two sides to every coin; every truth is a paradox. Sith lords wield great power because of their ability to tap into their emotions. While controlling emotions like anger and sadness is optimal, these emotions can also be powerful tools for change.

    The One Taste of the Universe, or How To Experience Synesthesia

    I tapped my hands on the table like I normally would do. But this time I noticed something different, something quite remarkable. Not only sounds but also colors invaded my awareness. Yes, there was no way to deny it, the tap on the table gave off a red color. Amazed by this discovery I started exploring other surfaces, my nails on my jeans gave off a distinct green hue and I could make blue come alive by hitting a metal pen. But it didn't stop here. When I drew my attention inward, I noticed not just the connection between sounds and colors, but also between colors and tastes, sounds and feelings, thoughts and sensations. It was if my whole world was mixed in a blender, making a smoothie of my own existence.

    How We Can (Actually) Change The World – Pt. 3/3

    Now you know what we're missing, and the best ways to incite REAL change. So what can you do about it? Right now?In the grand scheme of things, not much. Sure, you could attempt to see your friends more often, make conversation with strangers and/or spend less time in faux-communities online. You could even place an ad for a roommate or two. But I believe this issue is something deeply engrained in the global consciousness, and requires more radical action in order to be truly remedied.This is why I am extremely excited to announce a new initiative: the creation of true community on a global scale.

    A Quick Note On Kony 2012 And Confirmation Bias

    "It is a habit of mankind ... to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not fancy." - Thucydides 431 BCEWho would have thought that a video portraying the war crimes of a self-proclaimed messiah in Uganda would cause the biggest splash in social media as of yet? The emotional message made by the organization Invisible Children has spread like wildfire and has gained 16.7 million views on Vimeo and 76 million on YouTube, in just a little over a week time.
