Today, I invite you to partake in a Personal Detox Day and take back control of your life. I’ve been putting this into practice for about a year now and I have found it to lead to many short-term and long-term benefits including but not limited to: MUCH less anxiety, more discipline, will power, and determination, a higher vibrational energy, and general happiness and bliss!
Lights up! I’m blinded, but still manage to make out 30 strange faces staring directly at me. They’re silent, but the air is breathing with the tense energy – anything can happen. My palms are sweaty, knees are weak, arms are heavy. But I’m not alone; with a shared glance, my fellow improvisers and I check in with […]

What happens when you drop a male rat into a cage with a receptive female rat? First, you see a frenzy of copulation. Then, progressively, the male tires of that particular female. Even if she wants more, he has had enough. However, replace the original female with a fresh one, and the male immediately […]

Anyone that has tried a psychedelic drug know that it’s impossible to fully explain the experience to someone who hasn’t tried one. The entertainment industry completely misrepresents these experiences with dragons flying out of people’s faces and walls melting into nothing, which never occur even with strong doses. So, here is my best attempt at explaining the psychedelic experience…
I read a few years ago somewhere that a hallmark of a genius is being able to hold opposites together and transcend them. This stuck with me and over time I tried to make sense of it, because at first it was a very confusing concept. With some luck this concept began to make sense […]
There is a massive stigma associated with “drugs,” making the majority of the population think that every drug from salvia to heroin is unhealthy and addicting. With a little bit of research, however, this stereotype is easily disproved…well at least for the good drugs. Here is a list of those safe and enjoyable additives to […]
Marijuana is not illegal because it is unhealthy (it’s not) or because it has negative effects on the mind (it doesn’t). There is no logical or sound reason why marijuana cannabis is illegal in the United States. This ignorant legislation was the result of lies, corrupt motives, vague wording and demonization. This is the real […]
You’re 5 minutes away from a huge job interview / audition / date / speech / presentation / performance / [insert stressful event here]…
The butterflies are flapping furiously in your stomach and none of the old tricks are making them going away. Picturing the audience naked never worked for you, stress is overcoming your ability to meditate, and you don’t have nearly enough time for a round of yoga.
What do you do?
“How could she do something like this to me?” said a voice in my head. All the time. Everyday. Back in 2011, when everything had gradients, iOS icons made sense, and people used deodorants, I was stuck in middle of a pretty bad depression due to my divorce. Thankfully, I think I was smart enough (and had […]
There’s a new anonymous online drug marketplace, and it’s making quick strides. Due to a rapid and aggressive marketing campaign, Atlantis getting lots of exposure–not only to potential buyers, but to many established Silk Road vendors who see it as an attractive new outlet for their goods.

Neurogenesis is the birth of new neurons from neural stem or progenitor cells in the brain. It was long considered that the number of neurons was fixed and they did not replicate after maturity of the brain. It wasn’t until the 1990’s that neurogenesis was observed in the brains of humans, other primates and a number […]
My first day at high school my senior year, I came across a boy that I thought was stunning. He sat behind me in photography class. I completely failed in playing it coy, because I repeatedly looked over my shoulder to catch a glimpse of him. To my surprise, his eyes kept meeting mine with […]
1. Juan Enriquez: Will our kids be a different species?
Juan asks in this compelling TEDtalk ‘can we upgrade ourselves?’ His answer immediately puts humankind in perspective. So far, there have been 29 upgrades of humanoids. Multiple versions co-existed. And he convincingly argues that this may be the case today. He wants us to ask ourselves ‘are we really all identical?’ New evidence suggests we are not and that big differences are coming into our horizon. Juan explores trends of current technology and brain evolution to give us a taste of what may be coming our reality and which big questions we face today…

To rid myself and others of this pathetic habit, I’ve put together a step-by-step guide on overcoming social anxiety taking from other articles, books and my own experimentation. So what is a ‘social badass,’ you ask?

What this is not: A wishy-washy, positive thinking, pie-in-the-sky idea about changing the world. I will not be advocating the power of group meditation, overthrowing the powers that be or anything else that can be easily scoffed at.
What this is: A three-part series covering logical AND tangible ways to instigate awesome change on a global scale. I will cover the following concepts in order:
The single change the world needs most dearly
How real change occurs
The specific mission I think will bring about those changes. This has been formulating in my mind for the better part of 4 years, culminating in the last few months. It’s suffice to say that I am very excited to be sharing this with all of you.
