"You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t start by saying, ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid.’ If you do that every single day, soon you will have a wall."

Science fiction a medium for futuristic fantasy

Many technologies are no longer part of the imagination thanks to the world of science fiction.

Some of the creative inventions featured in movies like "Back to the Future" and "Total Recall" are at the forefront of modern technology.

Welcome to the future: ideas that went from science fiction to reality

  • We need to be compassionate and kind with the way we handle our difficult emotions, starting with accepting them.
  • We then need to be curious and mindful about the emotion, asking ourselves if this emotion is owning us or we are in command.
  • We need to be courageous with our self-understanding so that we can move forward in the direction of our values.

Ways To Cope With Other People's Clutter
  • Focus on your own clutter - it's never your responsibility to take care of other people's clutter. It's important to keep in mind that we have our own responsibilities.
  • Have a conversation - It's important to raise awareness of an issue that is concerning to you. Let the other person know that you'd prefer if their clutter were organized.
  • Set boundaries - Focus on your own but if theirs crosses a line, it's crucial to set limitations as to how much of their mess you can handle
  • Do it yourself- Sometimes putting a little bit of elbow grease never hurts and hopefully, your habits will rub off on the other person.
  • Make a game out of it - Cleaning and organizing is fun when there's a challenge mixed into it. Put some house music on and challenge them to a decluttering competition and prepare prizes if possible.
  • Be happy - Remember that it's about handling your belongings in a way that your home's energy is vibrant and flowing.
Systems And Goals

When we are working towards a goal, it is crucial to building a system that will eventually make you reach it. Systems are self-driven daily behaviours that guide and remind you towards what’s really important, and how not to get lost in life.

There isn’t anyone system that is built for an individual, and no two goals are alike. Our upbringing and preferences are different and unique. For example, if common knowledge says one should work in the morning, it may or may not apply to us.

Avoiding talking about your feelings

People with very low emotional intelligence will refuse to talk about their feelings because they aren't good at it. They may use vague language to describe how they feel, such as "I'm a little stressed" or "I'm kind of overwhelmed."

People with high emotional intelligence aren't afraid to describe their feelings. "I feel sad," "I'm angry," or "I'm disappointed."

Photosynthesis is the key to life

Photosynthesis is a way to store stable energy.

Ancient bacteria used a thermal-sensing pigment called bacteriochlorophyll to detect the infrared signal generated by heat. These bacteria were the progenitors of descendants that could make chlorophyll. This pigment captures shorter, more energetic light wavelengths from the sun and uses them as a source of power.

Memories: Our Sense Of Self

Memories, the vivid remembrances of our past, can be highly subjective. Most of us assume that memories are rigid and infallible, but they can never be the exact representations of the past because they were not copied in our minds with perfect fidelity.

Many of our memories change over time and can be confused by other people’s narrations and even our own dreams and imagination.

Sticky Tunes: When Songs Become Earworms
  • The songs that get stuck in our heads, those catchy but often annoying earworms are common, especially the Christmas melodies during the holiday season.
  • New research into these tunes stuck in the brain shows that they are conventional melodies (often instrumental) but have an unexpected repetition/loop, and can even impair our concentration.
  • During the Christmas season, melodic holiday songs play in public places like bars and cafes and are often heard on the radio, leading to a more than usual exposure. These songs have a certain melody that is ‘scrunchy’ and forms a familiar chord known as the Christmas chord, making them prone to become earworms.
