I recently signed up for an online class on game theory offered by some professors at Stanford University. Unlike most online classes, this one is completely free, does not count towards any degree and is offered only by the goodness of the professors who put it together (they even had to fight the university to allow them to do it under the Stanford name.) So what you have is people coming together for the sole purpose of spreading/gaining knowledge. No money or certifications involved. The results are truly fascinating…
For the past six months I have been living completely outside my comfort zone. Going to the grocery store was a challenge, finding my way around left me getting lost from time to time, and virtually everything in my life had been flipped upside down… And I absolutely loved it.
I have been teaching English at a high school here in South Korea for the past six months and can honestly say it has been the best decision I have ever made. If you’re anything like me, when I graduated from college I couldn’t stand the idea of getting a job I hated, working there for X years to make the person above me look good, only to find out down the line that I hated the job I was trying so hard to get in the first place…

A man named Roy was sitting on a park bench one warm and sunny day, staring off into the abyss of reality. His face lacked emotion and his eyes kept wandering; they did not wander because nothing was of interest, rather they wandered because nothing kept his interest. He kept looking and looking, hoping to […]
For some reason or another, I found myself in a funk over the last few days. I was lacking passion and drive. The world wasn’t quite as vibrant as it usually appears. Little things were going wrong here and there. I just wasn’t happy.
To make matters worse, my go-to activities for realigning myself were failing miserably. I went for walks, meditated, stated affirmations, exercised, watched inspirational videos, read books, activated my chakras…I did everything. But it all felt fake. I couldn’t truly get behind any of those activities because it felt like my core had been depleted…

The legend goes that the forest people (pygmies) first discovered it through the observations of animals such as boar, porcupines and gorillas consuming the root. Iboga is used once a lifetime in a large dose in an […]
How are you? Good, How are you? Good. You’ve heard it thousands of times and the words just seem to spring out of your mouth automatically when you do.

Books are magical inventions. By carrying meaning, they gives us glimpses of experience and knowledge from a different world. Phonetic language, being cut-off from time and place, the Now, helps both to encapsulate the ego more, but also to offer guidance to make it poriferous, letting Eros free. Without books we would lose this guidance. And in these times of dire ecological and cultural crisis, we need new ways to respond to the ecosystem that we simultaneous are and are imbedded in. These are the books that can lift our spirits to a necessary higher existence.

A clever comic over on the accuracy of George Orwell’s predictions about future society over those of Aldous Huxley. It’s informative and scary at the same time. “In short, Orwell feared that what we hate would ruin us. Huxley that what we love will ruin us.” It’s unfortunate that Huxley got it right because the latter is much less obvious.
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 […]
