Very cool. I've always had a hard time going into "3d mode", but it was easy with this picture.

THIS IS SO COOL - Can you see this image in 3D???

This is not a "hidden 3D" image within an image... It's the whole chess board in 3D!!!

You need to have/know, the ability to see 3D images with your naked eyes in order to experience the effect of this image.

If you can't, try unfocusing your eyes and then focus slowly.... or try crossing your eyes and then uncrossing... Eventually, you'll get it.

PS: As +Eric Sagel pointed out on my original post, you'll see 5 pieces in the back when viewing in 3D! (actually, all other pieces have one more.)

Depression is an Offline Event

In the last several weeks, two people that I've known from online have taken their lives. In both cases, there were tweets or Facebook posts or Google+ updates that hinted that things might be falling apart. But we rarely notice such posts. We rarely hear them loudly, because they aren't Siri jokes or cats dressed like astronauts.

Depression is tricky. People seeking to connect and get solace online, it's not really going to help. You can't count on your Twitter following to pull you out of a depression. You can't feel floored when your online friends don't hear you loud and clear. Remember that everyone is living out their own biography, and they might not be as aware of what's been going on with you.

Seek help offline. Visit a priest or a rabbi or whatever religious person makes sense. Visit a shrink. Talk to your doctor. Often times, depression is a medical problem that is exacerbated by experiences happening in your environment.

You're not alone, but the online world makes it really hard to see your pain. Things move too fast, are too shiny, and we are all hurrying around. The online world can make you feel more alone when you're feeling sad.

Get help early. Don't feel like you are a failure because you need some help. The strongest people in the world get help often, in many forms. You are worth it. Please, seek help offline and then come back and chat with us, too. Okay?

Although I've had countless amounts of support from online friends (I was essentially sustained by it from the age of 10 to age 17), my case is quite specific. I had created relationships through creating websites and projects which ended up lasting a lot better and stronger than most of my in-person relations. But another thing is, the internet has changed and so have the people on it. You're more likely to get "DO IT F@GG0T" from someone online now than, "hey, what's up? Let's talk."

And the thing is, the level of depression, the deep serious "warning!" depression discussed here... absolutely. Do not take it online. Get help outside. But unfortunately the thing that always must be understood is that people who feel that hopeless often feel everything out there won't help them either. I certainly have not in the past and even now still do (given my connections to basically every community, including the Baha'i Community, are all very strained these days). It's a challenge and one that I hope others can be a little more sympathetic to overall, since I've honestly in my overall experience gotten the cold shoulder or a WAY out there overreaction more often out in the real world compared to online.

Even worse, sometimes the online folks are the only ones who have the chance of hearing anything or paying attention. A friend of mine tried to kill herself back in 2007, well, two of them did actually. One nearly succeeded, the other came to their senses soon enough to call paramedics. In both cases, there were hints, a few of which I did notice at the time (many more I didn't). I wonder sometimes if I could have helped keep them from that or encouraged them to get help, talk to their families, their parents (both were living at home at the time), or something to that extent. Since I know both of these people are the kinds of folks that if they feel heard and they feel there's an option other than death, they'd take it gladly. Sadly, I was one of (potentially the only) person in any kind of position to see that something was wrong.

We're a society that tells depression to be suppressed. We've done that for decades, centuries likely, and it continues and keeps being a problem. Instead of actually figuring out the problem, figuring out a solution, we just say "deal with it." And because of our fantastic way of condemning those who feel what we also feel but fearlessly show it, layers of blame and guilt can sometimes get added onto things. Feeling sad about something in life is bad enough, then feeling like a heel for feeling sad just makes it all worse... when the hell are we gonna finally learn?

Anyway. Good video.

Totally! It looks like they are trying to make it available to buy, http://jonaspfeil.de/ballcamera/faq. I bet it'll be expensive!

Ball camera or no, I'm looking forward to December quite a lot :)

"Education Under Fire" is a 30-minute documentary profiles the growth, struggle, and inspiring spirit of the Baha´i Institute for Higher Education. Baha´is in Iran have been subjected to systematic persecution, including arrests, torture, and execution simply for refusing to recant their beliefs. They are also prohibited from going to college (and blocked from many professions).
