Nuking the Moon

If we detonated a nuclear weapon on the moon, the lack of an atmosphere on the moon would mean no mushroom cloud or shockwave, but anyone viewing the blast would likely get a fatal dose of ionizing radiation.

The explosion would probably cause moon debris ejected into space that will also strike Earth.

Self Improvement

The bullet journal method

Ryder Carroll started the Bullet Journal Method that grew into a lifestyle movement.

The bullet journal is a paper-and-pen journal where you can organise all of your lists, projects and plans in one place. Bullet journaling will help you to be more productive by organising what you have to do. However, the real purpose is to be mindful of why you're doing the tasks.

Literature helps us read the room

Are we frustrated of sympathetic with Hamlet's reluctance to avenge his father? When we read literature, we compare the main character's actions to what we'd do in a similar situation.

We develop social sensitivity as we practice our ability to take on another's point of view.

The Influence of the Moon

There are three ways as to how the moon can affect life on earth:

  • Time
  • Tide
  • Light

The moon has been embedded in many life cycles of many organisms. It has been there ever since the evolution has been taking place, even far longer than that.

Being Insanely Successful By Going Against The Norm
  • Success means different things to different people and is not always about bigger cars or the number of followers.
  • To achieve something extraordinary, you have to do something that no other people (or maybe just a few) are doing or willing to do.
  • Therefore, step-by-step systems on "how to be successful" are not going to help you achieve spectacular success.
“Manipulation is an emotionally unhealthy psychological strategy used by people who are incapable of asking for what they want and need in a direct way. People who are trying to manipulate others are trying to control others.”
The Nightly Sunset Ritual
  • If the sunset only happened once in a thousand years, the whole world would pay attention.
  • If things happen daily, we take it for granted, something known as Hedonic Adaptation.
  • Having a ritual like watching the sunset every evening makes you realize what’s really beautiful and prized.
The Stages of Change
  1. Precontemplation: Not ready. Not now.
  2. Contemplation: Maybe soon — thinking about it.
  3. Preparation: Ready, taking small steps.
  4. Action: Doing the healthy behavior.
  5. Maintenance: Keeping on.
  6. Termination: Change fully integrated. Not going back.
Hoarding: A Short-Term Buzz

We like to accumulate stuff as we believe it makes us (or others) happier, though it is just a short-term feeling. Most of us do not realize the fickleness and subjectivity of the value of the hoarded object. The flipside to this is that hoarders collect a lot of ‘junk’ and live with a lot of stuff they don’t really need.

Real contentment and satisfaction don't come from collecting things, but from the time we spend with our loved ones, the great relationships we have, or even a new place that we visit.

Transition is difficult

Transition, even the completely voluntary, can be a source of intense suffering because it involves adapting to new situations and changing your self-conception.

If we understand transitions, we can control our tendency to fight against them. We can turn major life changes into a source of meaning and transcendence.
