Welcome to Part-Time America

Written by: Sal Pezzino -@sp1989

If you were to look at the state of the United States economy, on paper it would seem as though everything is OK. The Dow Jones has been flirting with 16,000, stock prices are soaring, and the unemployment rate keeps going down. The truth is that it is all entirely artificial. Read more of this post

Am I Getting Old, or Are We Just Screwed?

Written by: Sal Pezzino @sp1989

I am 23 years old and have grown up appreciating all of the music, pop culture icons, toys, technology, and the like. The past few years have been strange, I would say it started around the time I started college but I don’t think that has any correlation with the way I have been feeling over the past few years. I have just grown completely dissatisfied with my generation and the things going on around me. Read more of this post

What is The Fiscal Cliff? Is it The End of The American Economy?

Without meaning to sound like an economics or political science professor, we first need to discuss what the Fiscal Cliff is. Many people think that the fiscal cliff is an approaching economic disaster of some sort that has to do with America’s debt and economic policy. That statement isn’t exactly false but the fact still remains the Fiscal Cliff is something entirely different. Read more of this post

It Doesn’t Take Common Sense to Know That…Mitt Romney Won the First Debate

So I went into the debate with an open mind. Not knowing really what to expect, but after watching the debate, I must say that it was a decisive victory for Mitt Romney. The mainstream news and media will undoubtedly take sides but coming from a person in the middle I can say that Romney clearly won. Read more of this post

The Shrinking Polar Ice Caps

NASA has recently released pictures that depict how the Arctic’s sea ice is disappearing at an extremely fast rate. The size of the Arctic’s floating ice cap has diminished massively over the last 30 years, losing around 15-20% of its mass per decade. Read more of this post

Operating Your Flesh Vehicle

Your Very Own Flesh Vehicle

We all are in a temporary state.

We all are going to live, then die. There is nothing that can change that.

We all get to operate our very own flesh vehicle for that temporary amount of time.

What you choose to do with your vehicle is up to you. You may choose to fuel it with healthy foods and supplements, or you may decide to destroy it with harmful drugs and chemicals.

You can use your vehicle to pilot you through an amazing life of love and creativity, or you can pilot yourself through pain, suffering, and hardship.

What is the best way to operate this vehicle you might ask?

Answering that question is difficult because we all want to achieve different things in our lives. We all don’t want the same thing, but at the same time, WE ARE THE SAME THING.

We are all in the same race with one similar goal, evolution.

Our goal is to reproduce, and teach our offspring all the lessons we have learned through our lives.

As you already know, there are many parents in this world who aren’t teaching their children how to evolve. They aren’t evolving either. They are stuck in a rut of negativity and project that negativity onto those they come in contact with, especially their children.

These are the type of people that need to have their ego obliterated right in front of their face.

These are the people who could really use some meditation.

There are too many people in this world who have not tuned into what the main goal of our whole race is.

They are the cancer to our whole race.

They are the ones who try to bring us down.

They are the ones that will die first.

Survival of the fittest.

We have gone through a terrible phase as a race throughout the last few hundred years.

Things are about to change.

Positive thinking is taking the lead.

Stay tuned because come December 21st, 2012, things will be a little different. I don’t know exactly how or if there will be some sort of “event” but I can tell you this, the earth is evolving. We are part of the earth, so we are evolving with it at the same time.

My prediction is that at the end of 2012, as a majority, we will tune into a higher consciousness. A higher awareness of our true identity and goals as a race. Everything that has happened in the past will be old news, and we will move on. We will move on to something we all truly deserve. A peaceful and loving world free of negativity and full of positive people working to make this spaceship we call home a wonderful place to live out our temporary states.

Enjoy your flesh vehicle! 🙂

The World’s 5 Most Futuristic Artifacts

Most Expensive Food In The World Smuggled Like Drugs

For those of you who do not know, truffles happen to be the most expensive delicacy in the entire world, and they are beginning to create what some call “The Truffle Mafia”.

Italian White Truffle

To be specific, “The Italian White Truffle” which goes for about $3,600 per pound is extremely rare and must be cleaned and cut prior to consumption.

The best example of their value is when in 2007 a man bought a 3.3 pound white truffle for a record-breaking $330,000 dollars…only to be consumed. I personally don’t see what the craze is all about considering that a truffle is technically a mushroom, and paying a good amount of money for a fungus (with the exception of psychedelic mushrooms of course) makes little sense to me. Regardless the rarity pertains with the price as these truffles are subject to an annual worldwide crop of only 30 tons per year.

However, their has been a creation of a black market of truffle selling of a different caliber, namely “Chinese Black Truffles”. Individuals get a white truffle then cut them with black truffles and market them as the rare Italian white truffles to unknowing consumers at high prices. Many complications have come from this, as a huge increase in crime just to obtain the majestic mushroom has risen in France.

Truffle Farmer Using Dog To Sniff Out White Truffles

 

The “Truffle Mafia” as they are called, have done the following in order to obtain these truffles:

  • Raid crops
  • Steal truffles directly from restaurants
  • Car-jacking truffle farmers
  • Beaten truffle farmers
  • Murder truffle farmers
  • Steal truffle farmers dogs that detect truffles
  • Steal the trees that produce the truffles
The scarcity and high prices of these truffles have left an extremely similar resemblance to modern drug trades and practices associated with them.
The reality of the situation that is it a dangerous world and the more scarce something is, the more it is desired and some people are willing to do anything for money.
France alone gets in around 28 tons of the fake “Chinese Truffles” and are passed off through restaurants or wealthy tasteful individuals. These fakes have a value of around only $20 per pound whilst the real ones, as stated earlier, go for a hefty $3,600 per pound.
Who would have thought farming an expensive delicacy would be comparable to illegal drug trades one day? Can’t say I would have seen it coming…

 

Creating Your Ideal Reality

The main problem that arises for many people in the area of self-development is that they feel at effect to their current condition rather than working courageously to AFFECT their current reality.

Many of us feel effected by outside external circumstances instead of deciding to AFFECT them. When you choose to affect your current state of reality, you can reap the rewards effectively.

The universe will deliver whatever you want, you just have to set out your intentions and work towards creating them. You set your intention, and the universe will respond to your thoughts by guiding you along the way as you consciously create.

Subconsciously, without you knowing the exact way, the universe will do its work if you allow it to.

Create Your Own Reality.

Nothing is going to fall in your lap.

If your intention is to earn $1,000,000 dollars, it is not going to fall from the sky.

If you stick to your intention everyday and work at it as hard as you can, the universe will open up channels of opportunities to make your thoughts a physical reality. If for one second you don’t trust in the universe, it will respond to that distrust, and close up the channels.

You will face setbacks along the way, but treat those as learning experiences rather than failures. If you get upset over failing, the universe will tune into that frequency you are vibrating in, and attract more and more failure and discontent.

You have to know that it will not be easy to change your current state of reality.

If it was easy, you would already have what you want.

But most of us don’t, right?

It wouldn’t require any effort on your part, and everyone would have what they want.

It doesn’t work that way, but if you understand the Law of Attraction, you can use it to your advantage on your creative journey of life.

You are the master creator of your reality.

You are the manifester.

You are the alchemist of your own life.

Everything you create has stemmed from yourself.

Everyone else is simply an avatar in your reality, they don’t have to exist in it if you don’t want them to.

You can turn away from people who negatively effect you, and turn towards the positive people who can help you and embrace the entire experience with you.

You have the conscious choice.

There is no one telling you a certain way to act unless you are WEAK and give into the desires of others for their advantage.

Be STRONG and overcome the influence of others if it is guiding you in a wrong direction. You subconsciously know what is right and what is wrong, but too many times you might fall into the trap of doing the wrong thing.

The “right” thing is spreading positive energy and positive ideas to every single person or “avatar” you meet in your reality.

If you try to impose positive energy into other people’s lives, they will respond equally with positive energy.

If they are stuck in a rut of negativity and don’t respond well to positive energy, you can just let them suffer by themselves and consciously find other people to help you on your trip.

If you treat everyone you meet as you would like to be treated yourself, you will be amazed at the results.

Most people will return the energy you project on to them and help you as you help them.

It works hand in hand.

Two minds are better than one and two people working towards achieving a goal is a lot easier than one.

If you have big dreams and goals, don’t feel alone.

A lot of us have deep desires that we wish we could achieve, but we limit ourselves in our beliefs. There are many people out in this world who would love to help you and join team as you both work towards building a great future.

Don’t feel isolated because you don’t think anyone else will help.

If you can inspire people to think the same way you do, they will join your team and the goals will be easier to achieve.

If I thought no one would appreciate this website and what we have done, I would not have even bothered to create it.

It has become what it has become due to a TEAM effort of conscious individuals looking to grow and prosper and share those ideals with everyone who is interested in growing themselves.

If I for one second was fearful of what people thought of us, I wouldn’t have even bothered to create this.

I would have let the fear take over and I would be too scared to even try it.

Good thing that didn’t happen.

If I can leave you with one thought, it would be to stop thinking about what you want and START ACTING ON IT.

Stop dwelling on what you DON’T want and start moving towards what you DO WANT.

TAKE ACTION!

Stop being lazy, and stop expecting things to happen overnight.

They won’t.

Take baby steps and set baby goals at the beginning of your journey.

It will be easy to achieve these goals, and you will build confidence in yourself once you achieve some little steps.

After that, you will trust in yourself that you can achieve ANYTHING you set your mind to.

This is where its gets to be A LOT OF FUN.

Share the experience with everyone you think deserves it, and you will attract some more positive opportunities and people along the way.

We did, and we continue to each day.

So what are you waiting for?

GET MOVING! 🙂

My Top 5 Writing Tools

I have been wanting to do this post for a while and share what I use to do some of my writing and blog posts.

Here are my top 5 tools and instruments for writing!

Music is a Must.

1. Music

Music is an absolute must when I am writing.

I need to have something to have my mind flowing and in a positive state. This is easily achieved through putting on my Bose AE-2 headphones on full volume and tuning out of the outside world. It gives my mind a chance to go completely nuts and spit out anything that I have stored in the back of it.

The type of music doesn’t matter.

What matters is that you enjoy the music and it is putting you in a good mood. When I am in a good positive mood and writing, it doesn’t feel like I am writing, it is more a flow state of my fingers hitting the keys and words being produced in a well structured fashion.

If you don’t feel like that when you are writing, you are not writing in a state of your full potential.

Blast some music and just have at it. Don’t expect anything.

Just write.

2. Coffee

I need some stimulation to get all of my thoughts out quick and easy.

Coffee is a big help due to the caffeine contained in coffee.

I choose coffee because I like the taste and the hot temperature tends to wake my brain up.

Caffeine releases dopamine in your brain which gives you more motivation, focus and drive.

I take a lot of other supplements as well.

For my full list read: The Ultimate Supplement Stack.

Free Your Mind.

3. Meditation

Meditating right before I write lets me explore every single angle of what I am about to write about.

It is a great feedback method and a way to formulate my thoughts before I sit down to pound them out.

I have a lot of articles written on meditation if you would like to explore the amazing practice:

Top 5 Reasons You Don’t Meditate

Top 5 Reasons You Should Meditate

The Seven Human Energy Chakras

How to Crack Your Intuitive Third-Eye Chakra

The Power of The Subconscious Mind

Out-of-Body Experiences

The Power of Positive Thinking

4. Marijuana

Marijuana: Hey at Least its Not Meth Either.

The ultimate creativity tool.

If you have any objection to pot, and you believe it is a harmful substance, you have been misinformed and lied to.

It simply isn’t.

I am not going to lie, a majority of this site and my writing was created and written while under the influence of marijuana.

I guess it makes me lazy and not want to do anything…

I even work out on pot.

Paranoia? It’s an illusion. Check out this video.

Pathetic propaganda you have been conditioned with.

5. Alpha Brain

Probably one of the best supplements I take.

Alpha Brain is a nootropic which basically means it is a brain enhancing supplement full of great vitamins and minerals

I am not going to lie, we receive commission from your orders, but all proceeds go towards web hosting, web storage, web design and overall site maintenance.

The Most Advanced Nootropic on The Market.

I hope you try some of my tools and ideas out and give writing a shot if you aren’t already interested in it.

It is a great way to release your thoughts, express yourself, and share what you have to say with the world.

I am going to keep doing it, and I encourage you to as well! 🙂

Panic Attacks: Stop Scaring Yourself!

WHAT IS A PANIC ATTACK?

Panic Attack!

A panic attack is a period of intense fear and worry that a person experiences with or with out an identified trigger that appears to come out of nowhere.

A panic attack usually does not last for more than 10 minutes.

People who have experienced a panic attack at some point in their lives have described it as the most terrifying and uncomfortable situation they have ever been in, especially if the person was having a panic attack in a public/social situation.

More times than not, panic attacks are mistaken for heart attacks and many people rush to the ER for medical attention. People usually are diagnosed with panic attacks when the doctors find absolutely nothing wrong with them. It takes a lot of time for most people to accept that what they experienced was “just” a panic attack because of how intense the feeling could be.

A panic attack can be seen as some kind of a “glitch” in our autonomic nervous system which is responsible to send a general “alarm” to our bodies to either “fight or flight” when we are in a dangerous situation. People who experience panic attacks may have an over sensitive or hyper-reactive autonomic nervous system.

TWO TYPES OF FEARS:

During a panic attack a person will experience two types of fears.

The primary fear is the initial and physical experience of pure panic; racing heart, interrupted breathing, sweating, etc.

SYMPTOMS THAT COMMONLY OCCUR DURING A PANIC ATTACK:

1.) Numbness/tingling sensations

2.) Dizziness,faintness, difficulty balancing

3.) Racing and/or Pounding heart

4.) Chest Tightness

5.) Sweating

6.) Shaking

7.) Hot Flashes

8.) Feeling unreal or as if you’re in a dream

9.) Nausea or abdominal discomfort

10.) Shortness of breath

11.) Fear of dying

12.) Fear of “losing it”

13.) Fear of losing control

14.) Intense need to flee or escape

The secondary fear are the thoughts that follow these physical sensations a person experiences during a panic attack.

THE CYCLE:

Treating individuals who experience panic attacks and a variety of different anxiety disorders, I’ve come to learn that addressing the secondary fears (thoughts) first have been extremely helpful in decreasing the intensity of the attacks. Let’s take a look at some of the very common false beliefs and thoughts that most people have during panic attacks.

“I’m going to stop breathing”

“I’m going to pass out”

“I’m going crazy”

“I’m going to embarrass myself”

“I’m going to fall”

I’m going to have a heart attack”

“I’m going to die”

These thoughts and internal dialogue will only intensify your panic attack, so cut it out!

Not so easy right?

Well here are some facts about panic attacks that may help you negate these thoughts and help you kick panic attacks in the ass.

MYTH BUSTING!

Busted!

You will NOT suffocate because of a panic attack:

When distressed, your body tends to tighten the muscles, and that includes your neck and chest muscles which reduces the extent of your respiratory function. This does not mean there is anything wrong with your lungs or breathing at all. If you are not taking in enough oxygen, your brain will utilize it’s built in mechanism to force you to take deeper breaths or gasp. Yes, the feeling of suffocating IS NOT PLEASANT, but trust that you will not actually suffocate. There are no recorded deaths of suffocation during panic attacks 🙂

You will NOT faint because of a panic attack- Due to hyperventilation, (fast,fast breathing) during a panic attack, you may feel light headed which may give off the impression that you are going to faint. NO! Your blood circulation to your brain has slightly decreased. This is far from deadly. Allow the light-headed feelings to diminish, they will with time, along with slowed breathing.

Guess what!!? During a panic attack your heart is beating a little quicker; people usually faint when their hearts slow down.

So Much Panic!

You will NOT fall during a panic attack:

Sometimes you may feel as if your legs are too weak to hold your body which triggers the thoughts “I’m going to fall”, which then leads to “I’m going to embarrass myself or get hurt”.

Adrenaline is released during a panic attack which sometimes causes dilation in blood vessels in your legs. This feeling is JUST a feeling. Your legs are not actually weaker, they are just as strong as they were before the panic attack.

You will NOT go CRAZY during a panic attack:

A common reaction to rapid breathing is the sensation of feeling “not in reality”. Again, this is JUST a sensation. If you experience a feeling of disorientation or “dream like”, tell yourself that this is just a reaction to a change in your breathing. People do not go crazy from a panic attack. Mental illnesses are complex and usually progress slowly over time. There are no recorded “psychosis” due to a panic attack.

Stay Strong!

You will NOT have a heart attack during a panic attack- A healthy and strong heart can beat 200 beats per minute for as long as several weeks without a problem! Your heart can withstand a lot more than you think it can. There is a MAJOR difference between what your heart feels like during a panic attack and during a true heart attack.

THE DIFFERENCES:

During a panic attack your heart may pound and beat more rapidly and sometimes people complain of some pain. This pain quickly subsides.

During a true heart attack, there is much more consistent pain involved and intense pressure against the chest. This pain gets worse and worse.

EKG research indicates that during a panic attack, there are no abnormalities in the heart other than rapid beating. EKG tests indicates quite a few abnormalities in the heart during a heart attack.

APPLYING IT:

Now that you have learned a little more about the realities of panic attacks, try to replace your catastrophic thoughts with your knew FACTUAL knowledge. You are not going to die from a panic attack. Yes, they are scary, traumatic, and serve as interruptions in the lives of many, but don’t give them THAT much credit.

You may tell yourself, even after learning and knowing all of this, that during your next panic attack, that this one is different. you may tell yourself, “This time it’s really a heart attack.”

Well now you will know that that is one of the most common thoughts people have during panic attacks.

A last piece of advice- Embrace the symptoms. The more you try to avoid these symptoms,  such as isolating yourself, constantly seeking medical attention, avoiding walking,talking and just being during a panic attack, the more you will reinforce your false beliefs that they are dangerous. You are stronger than a panic attack. Laugh at it. Millions of people experience panic attacks.

THERE ARE NO RECORDED DEATHS DUE TO PANIC ATTACKS!

You will NOT go CRAZY during a panic attack:

A common reaction to rapid breathing is the sensation of feeling “not in reality”.

Again, this is JUST a sensation. If you experience a feeling of disorientation or “dream like”, tell yourself that this is just a reaction to a change in your breathing. People do not go crazy from a panic attack. Mental illnesses are complex and usually progress slowly over time. There are no recorded “psychosis cases” due to a panic attack.

You will NOT have a heart attack during a panic attack- A healthy and strong heart can beat 200 beats per minute for as long as several weeks without a problem! Your heart can withstand a lot more than you think it can. There is a MAJOR difference between what your heart feels like during a panic attack and during a true heart attack.

ATHLETES WOULD BE DROPPING DEAD:

If our hearts could not sustain some rapid beating once in a while, don’t you think athletes would be dropping to the floor left and right?

You may tell yourself, even after learning and knowing all of this, that during your next panic attack, that this one is different. you may tell yourself, “This time it’s really a heart attack”. Well now you will know that that is one of the most common thoughts people have during panic attacks.

A last piece of advice- Embrace the symptoms. The more you try to avoid these symptoms,  such as isolating yourself, constantly seeking medical attention, avoiding walking,talking and just being during a panic attack, the more you will reinforce your false beliefs that they are dangerous. You are stronger than a panic attack. Laugh at it. Millions of people experience panic attacks every day.

No One Dies From Panic Attacks!

THERE ARE NO RECORDED DEATHS DUE TO PANIC ATTACKS.

Where Do The Jets Go From Here?

Rex Ryan's guarantees failed

Just like many Jet fans, I am wondering what direction the team will be heading towards the 2012 campaign.

From being considered Super Bowl contenders to not even making the playoffs, I can’t even say the mighty have fallen because the Jets were not even able to dominate.

Lets outline what has happened since the beginning of the Jets season and how quickly the perception has changed for this team.

To narrow it down, I will divide the season into four quarters:

1st quarter (2-2) – The Jets got off to a good 2-0 start. They received a gift from Dallas when Romo forgot the fact that Darelle Revis plays for the Jets.

However, the first “bump” in the road occurred when Pro Bowl Center Nick Mangold suffered a high ankle sprain. Mangold was out for 2 weeks and the Jets suffered badly without him, getting crushed by Oakland and humiliated by Baltimore.

2nd Quarter (3-1) – After their 3-game losing streak, the Jets turned around with a 3-game winning streak. After losing in New England, the Jets had good wins against Miami, San Diego, and an impressive victory against Buffalo.

Sitting at 5-3, the Jets seemed primed to overtake the division from the struggling Patriots.

3rd Quarter (2-2) – The Patriots and Broncos crushed the Jets spirits in my opinion.

Both times the Jets were handed heartbreaking losses. The Patriots set the Jets straight and let them know that this was THEIR DIVISION.

Tebow took flight with a 95 yard drive to seal the Jets fate. The Jets would rebound with wins against Buffalo and Washington but the losses to New England and Denver still loomed.

4th Quarter (1-3) – The Jets saved their worst for last.

The Eagles destroyed the Jets, and Santonio Holmes played awful committing two turnovers on his own (1 returned for touchdown). The Jets than lost their battle for New York when the Giants completely outplayed and outcoached the Jets.

Sanchez was awful and the Defense gave up a back-breaking 99 yard touchdown reception to Victor Cruz.

Finally, in Jason Taylor’s last game, the Dolphins sealed any hope for the Jets by embarrassing the Jets 19-17.

The Jets went from being a solid pick for the Super Bowl to an average 8-8 team with MAJOR leadership problems.

This Dolphins loss not only sealed the Jets playoff hopes, but it could seal the fate for Holmes, Schottenheimer, and Sanchez as Jets.

I do not know how Holmes can step foot in that locker room again after quitting on his team. What’s worse is that no team will trade for Holmes, so the Jets are stuck with a horrible contract.

Santonio Holmes quit on his team

Holmes is due $12 Million and if the Jets cut him, $12 Million will go against their cap and Holmes will be a free agent. It’s a tough pill to swallow but it will be VERY interesting to see what exactly the Jets do with Holmes.

How  Brian Schottenheimer is still an Offensive Coordinator is beyond my comprehension. I love Rex, but this is beyond idiotic, it simply does not make any sense. His influence on Mark Sanchez seems only hazardous to be honest, especially when you have Tom Moore there for you.

For those who do not know Tom Moore, he molded Peyton Manning into the player he is today. Peyton Manning is pretty good, (4 MVPs, 1 Super Bowl Ring) but why do that?

Yeah, same old Jets.

Mark Sanchez.. I don’t know where to begin, I almost feel bad for him. Sanchez in his young career has acquired 30+ wins and a good playoff record but has just looked horrible this season. I feel he just tried to do too much.

Schottenheimer completely undermined him with awful play calling. However, that does not excuse awful decision-making on Sanchez’s part. I feel like more defensive lineman picked him off than cornerbacks.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE:

1.) FIRE SCHOTTY – Seriously! You have Tom Moore, I would give Moore a blank check and beg him to be the Offensive Coordinator. He is more than qualified and from Rex’s perspective, you will not have to worry about the Offense AT ALL, you can completely focus on the defense.

The Jets need a new Offensive Coordinator

2.) Veteran Leadership – Talent is not everything. You need guys that are respected. I feel that Rex tried to be the figure-head of the locker room. Rex is trying to do so much, and he should focus more on his job.

Sign guys that will back you up.

Players such as Tony Richardson, Damien Woody, Jericho Cotchery were sorely missed in the locker room and it showed.

3.) 2012 Draft – the Jets will have a top 20 pick, it is CRUCIAL that they hit a home run with this pick.

The Jets needs include a Free safety,Right Tackle, linebacker and defensive lineman.

There will be impact players for the Jets to take with their pick, so they better get it right.

4.) No guarantees/No Excuses – I love Rex’s confidence, but I hoped he learned his lesson this year.

Football is the one sport with no guarantees (not even players contracts are, you think Superbowls are?)

Some Jet fans might say, “well Namath guaranteed a Superbowl victory and backed it up.”

Yes, He did guarantee a Superbowl victory, but the Jets were already IN the Superbowl. He didn’t guarantee anything during the regular season.

And one more thing.

Please stop with the excuses, Rex.

Just take the failure of the season and deal with it. I am a huge Ryan fan, but you have to sit back and lick your wounds (or grab a snack?)

Where Does The Sky End?

When you look up in the night sky, you might see some pretty stars and cool constellations, but how many of us actually realize that we are looking at something that goes on FOREVER?

Do you know what forever even means?

I mean we like to describe space as being infinite, but how do you even explain that?

We can say infinite means it never ends, but what does never ends mean?

It means we can’t possibly ever explain it.

Where Does The Sky End?

We know it never ends, it keeps expanding and never stops, but what is it expanding into?

What does the universe keep expanding itself into? Another infinite realm? How many possible “infinities” are there?

I bet in 1,000,000 years we wont even be able to explain it.

As a race we like to describe some of our members as “geniuses” but how smart do you have to be, to be able to crack the entire mechanics of the universe?

I don’t think it is possible with our current biological structure.

We have come a long way in brain size and power in the last 2,000,000 years but we still can’t explain everything. We are the only species on the planet that can gaze into the night sky and contemplate these types of things, but we are never going to have a full explanation.

We are going to have to evolve into something else before that ever happens. That’s the point of evolution, to adapt, get smarter, and keep figuring things out slowly.

That is what our purpose is.

As we keep creating new things, new innovations and new technologies, our biology will eventually keep evolving to adapt.

It has to, survival of the fittest, the weaker genetics in our species will die off and in time, a whole new “race” will be born.

It will just take too long for “us” to see, we only are here for a temporary time.

The next time you think you have a problem here on earth and you are stressing over it, just look up.

The Idea of Infinity is Too Difficult to Possibly Fully Explain.

Look up and think about the vastness of this whole thing we are a part of. It’s fucking crazy if you really sit back and look at the big picture.

It might be scary at first to realize how much of an insignificant role you play, but that is only a limiting belief you have about yourself.

The universe is infinite already, and it keeps expanding?

You are already infinite too in your potential, and you can keep expanding and evolving, so don’t EVER limit yourself to something you “think” you can’t do.

We are moving into an age of truth, everything will be exposed and there will be no more lies.

I think in due time, we will be able to read each others minds and there will be no more secrets to hold. Maybe in a time like this, there won’t be any more lies and deceit, and we can evolve even faster towards our predetermined outcome.

What that outcome is, remains to be foreseen, but lets enjoy the fuck out of this temporary life while we have the chance. 🙂
