I've found a new track that gives me the shivers. Always a happy moment. I'll get good mileage out of this one, before the neuronal pathways finally become too familiar. To get such a phenomenon to occur, you listen intently, and don't try to generate energy. It's not about effort. It's just a redirection of … Continue reading How to experience Exquizitingles: staying present with Uplifting and Emotional Trance and breathing through the Rush

An old hunter gatherer tale about trance dance as psychological therapy
While HDRing yesterday morning, I had a psychological and Easter-themed insight into the San baboon story, and how it seems to be about trance dance and reshaping self-image. In the story, the baboon people mock Kaggen's son (this being inspired by baboon calls sounding like mocking laughter), saying he's not as clever as he thinks … Continue reading An old hunter gatherer tale about trance dance as psychological therapy

AUDIO: Poems on Fasting-Enhanced Perceptions of Music and Nature
Ode to Space Dub on a Fasting Evening
We failed to get filled up today with much food And yet now as we settle this failure feels good As the sight of the slow-sinking Sun sends a sign To relinquish our tools, and relax and resign To let go of our goals and our aims for the day We can loosen our hold, … Continue reading Ode to Space Dub on a Fasting Evening

Seemly Celebration: Joytarian Corridors to the Future Peace
When is it unseemly to celebrate? I‘ve got this formula for elevated celebratory states which I know works well: fasting (restricting to around 500 cals of healthy plant-based foods) for a day and night, waking after a good sleep, having a double espresso (plus high B-vits and Vit C) and then dancing to Uplifting Trance … Continue reading Seemly Celebration: Joytarian Corridors to the Future Peace
Taking the Mood Dampers Off with Hypericum Flavonoids on Post-Fast days: A key to successful, sustainable 5:2 dieting?
The original reverb peddle was the piano’s sustain peddle. The default for a piano is for the felt dampers to come down as soon is a key is released to stop the piano wire from vibrating. This stops the note when you release it, allowing for clear and cohesive melody and chord progressions without all … Continue reading Taking the Mood Dampers Off with Hypericum Flavonoids on Post-Fast days: A key to successful, sustainable 5:2 dieting?
