Holy Hell this is GOOD! Love her voice, and she works so well with the band. Slinky, sexy, sensual. She goes from soft sexy kitten to full on raspy voice diva. How am I just now finding out about this group?

Far From Noise is a powerful game that tackles some big topics!

Hmm very interesting. #Neurons aren't just the same as #electrons or #protons that are identical throughout the #universe: potentially each neuron has its own genetic expression, its own fingerprint and thus maybe even one of billionfold varying features. Thinking still too mechanistically, I would never have thought about this possibility. Every neuron could be a true 'individual', and the hundred billion of neurons may be what makes #humans become individuals, not only genetically and bodily at large, but as an expression of #cognitive experience. This is a really breathtaking discovery. And it's wonderful!

Quoting +Gideon Rosenblatt

Interesting thoughts about combining AI and blockchain, particularly around Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). I'm starting to think about this scenario a lot these days. Just about to write up an interview and additional thoughts based on talking to someone who's deep into this stuff.

More soon. In the meantime, this piece is pretty interesting in itself.

A bit crowded... but the girl liked it. If she didn't pick it up, I'd still be changing it and playing myself :D

Would you have a quick look at the images and please tell me a couple of adjectives that describe emotions? Si? :) Any that comes to mind.

If you can't think of a couple, it may be a good idea to get friendly with the dictionary ;) No need to say from which picture. I'll write some later myself.

7 Step Road Map The feeling Scale

#howto feel the feelz doesn't come naturally if we got used to avoid or to deny our emotions. The sooner they come out of the closet, the better.

We teach our boys not to feel, fear is for "pussies", anger is to be hidden, bla bla NON SENSE! How can we expect them to feel empathy for anyone else if they can't even name/identify their own #emotions? That's one of the major causes of violence. If we stop shaming boys for having and acknowledging feelings, we'll go a long way towards ending so much #violence. Those un-acknowledged emotions will be much less likely to turn into anger/rage.

We have the bad habit of privileging what we see and ignoring what we don't see like thoughts and feelings. What we neglect is often what's most important, just as the oxygen in the air.

Please, think about the internal life of men (and women) which is often neglected by them, their partners, friends, and he world in general. There's a pic of the 7 steps that I might write here later.

Let's find adjectives to define what we feel. Name it/define it and that's half the problem solved.

Here's my talk from a bit earlier on this month in the quarterly series, "Philosophers In the Midst of History"

And on that note, we've been renewed for another four talks in the series - we'll be doing Cicero, Augustine of Hippo, Jeremy Bentham, and Albert Camus in 2018!
