Inception in Real Life: 24 Lifehacks for Lucid Dreaming

Lucid Dreaming is my ‘coolest’ lifehack. Why? It takes what is usually unproductive, forgetful time and turns it into world class entertaining adventures and opportunities for introspection. It really does also have some cross over benefits to real life personal development (explained below). While there’s a few products that enhance it, Lucid Dreaming is free.
You face a red pill/blue pill moment dear reader, a dream life of adventure is not for everyone, so you may want stop reading NOW before being sucked into this surreal world of danger, sex, misbehaving physics and confusing conversations with your unconscious.

Fasoracetam is another example of irresponsible misrepresentation online of drugs that lay consumers really shouldn't be using. One of the first results on Google for Fasoracetam is the content farm Nootriment.com; their article enthusiastically recommends it for everything from intelligence to anxiety and irresponsibly fails the mentioned the numerous undesirable side effects reported. It also fails to make a clear distinction between this very dubious research chemical and cognitive enhancers that are proven by meaningful preponderance of human double blind, placebo controlled study.
While the Internet can inform us of very helpful drugs like Piracetam it also informs the masses about drugs like Fasoracetam that really don't belong outside of laboratory.
Nootriment concludes:
"Although it is young, Fasoracetam will likely become a beloved members of many nootropic stacks."
God I hope not! I can't come up with any benefit of taking this risky drug that isn't offered by a much safer drug.

New Article/Podcast:
This is why it's important to research anecdotal #Biohacker's experiences along with the human studies. You cannot always extrapolate what a drug will do for healthy people based upon what it does for sick people.
Some drugs like Piracetam imbue the kind of benefit to healthy people that you would expect them to based upon what they do combating cognitive decline, but then there's drugs like Nefiracetam that merely bring sick people back to baseline.
This is why anecdotal reports matter, and why I take the time to read as many of them as I can before I reach my conclusions.

In my perpetual pursuit of cultural and pharmacological novelty I've began doing some research on Russian #Nootropics. In this article I frankly assess some of the performance enhancers offered by Moscow's leading online purveyor of smart drugs. If you are a European whose freedoms of consumption are being throttled by the invisible hand of state power (or you just don't like paying exorbitant VAT taxes) RUPharma has a lot of expertise getting smart drugs through customs.

Tomorrow is #Xmas! (Nope, it's not heretical to spell it that way)
Especially this year, you maybe sitting across the table from extended family that you have significant ideological-political differences with.

One option is to just follow first date rules: Avoid conversation topics of religion, politics, morality etc which I think is kind of lame, especially with the people who you are supposed to have your most intimate relationships with.

Another option is to passionately stand up for what you really believe. Make strong arguments that support your positions on the tectonic events that happened in #2016. But if you are facing someone on the other side of the fence, this could make things quiet tense on a day that we are supposed to really appreciate each other.

Instead of being going with either of these extremes...
Being boringly polite and politically correct
or
Being an ideological warrior

I'll suggest you try the strategy I explain here (features a helpful TedX lecture!)
Good luck!
Here’s a really practical social dynamics lifehack for dealing with the political discussions.

Updated Headspace​ Review
I did upgrade to the paid version of Headspace. They were offering a 3 month membership at a steep discount and I thought why not?
The paid membership opens up a bunch of different modules which delve into different modalities of meditation and mindfulness methods.
I did the creativity, focus and happiness modules
The creativity module teaches you this fractionation technique where you focus your attention but then let your mind run and think about whatever, which is supposed to make you more creative.
The happiness module focused on a gratitude exercise and focusing in on the emotions of gratitude.
The focus module entailed an exercise of focusing on different parts of the body.
In general meditation has been great for my focus and happiness, but these Headspace modules have really not made me anymore creative, focus or happy.

Headspace is great training wheels for learning meditation but it's not what's going to take me from being an intermediate meditator to a truly advanced one. The main utility of Headspace is guided meditation and after almost 3 years of meditation I've kind of figured out a meditation process that I really like and the guiding voice is distracting from what I want to focus on in my practice, which is...
Taoist breath counting
Blue Sky mode
Empty mind
The Cool draw sex transmutation visualization
I find that when there's no little voice in my ear buds and I'm truly alone with myself for 20 minutes; I can go deeper and it's more of an intensive focus exercise.

There's a less feature rich yet free meditation app called Insight Timer that I've used extensively and it's quiet good:
Most importantly it's a simple meditation timer with a couple different settings for intervals and sounds.
It has a library of guided meditation sessions, it's worth trying a couple of these.
It has some light social network features that show how many other people are meditating simultaneously. I found these unnecessary though and turned off notifications.

To be honest I got way more value out of Headspace's free Take-10 course, it taught me to meditate and outlined the Blue Sky Protocol for me. I'll continue to recommend Headspace to those who are brand new to meditation but I'm going to take a break from guided practice. I did pay full price for 1 additional month and after this month I'll move on from Headspace.

Headspace is meditation made simple. Learn online, when you want, wherever you are, in just 10 minutes a day. Mindfulness has been a part of my life for the last 3 years in the form of Dual N-Back brain training and emWave2 practice. I kept hearing that the best tool for learning meditation was Headspace; this is a guided meditation practice, so there's this guy, with a very soothing English accent who talks you through the meditation process. If...

Methylene Blue Review: The #Nootropic drips that make me look like I cannibalized a smurf!
It comes in this liquid solution and you deposit a few drops of it below your tongue.

By Jonathan Roseland Connect Here's another Nootropic that doesn't do anything for me. It comes in this liquid solution and you deposit a few drops of it below your tongue. What's kind of funny about it is that it turns your mouth really blue! And everything your mouth touches, so cups, spoons, your lips, other Nootropics and other people. When I first tried it... I was a bit sleep deprived on a bus from Barcelona to Valencia. I did the MB di...

20% Discount on #Modafinil from Afinil Express (Coupon Code: 2K17)
Of the +70 smart drugs I've tried Modafinil is the most effective focus promoter.
20% is a pretty generous discount on a fairly expensive smart drug, but since Bitcoin is rallying they are offering a 35% discount for using #Bitcoin. That won't last so if you're waiting for a really great deal to stock up on Modafinil... THIS IS IT!

As a Nootropic agent caffeine is something of a blunt instrument, there are zero studies showing that caffeine actually improves cognition. However, it’s a notorious favorite drink of writers, programmers, salespeople and attorneys chasing the dragon of a more productive state of mind. Coffee is a classic example of Pavlovian conditioning; since coffee makes us more energetic we get reference experiences being more productive while caffeinated. We associate the earthy scent of the scalding beverage, the hot cup in our hands and it’s strong taste with getting stuff done and it becomes a trigger for our productivity. For this reason I prefer to combine caffeine with smart drugs that actually improve cognition and creativity.
Caffeine boosts the Limitless neurotransmitters: Dopamine, Serotonin, Norepinephrine, Acetylcholine, Epinephrine and Glutamate.

This is basically a "healthy fast food" joint. They offer sandwiches, salads, soup and coffee which decent but not the best in Sofia. They have free wifi and power outlets if you want to post up and work on your laptop or surf the net.

Telenor is a decent cell phone service provider but minus two stars because their plan for foreigners is kind of crappy. It's 10 BGN per week for 7 gigs which is a little more data than I actually need and you need to go into the Telenor store or recharge on your phone once a week or else your service turns off. It comes out to about 40 BGN monthly which is a little overpriced. They don't offer a monthly plan to foreigners. Almost everyone at the Telenor stores speaks English, which makes it easier for guys like me.

Typical lazy, backwards Greek firm. I wanted to buy a bus ride from Thessaloniki to Sofia. The times on their website where wrong I couldn't purchase online. They asked me to email my credit card number to them. Which I declined to do. I went down to their office and bought what I thought was a ticket in person. When I arrived at the Bulgarian travel office where the bus departs I discovered that I did not have a reservation. I paid Crazy Holidays but they never actually made my reservation. I assertively asked a young guy at the office to figure something out, he made some calls and got me a seat on the bus somehow. Don't buy from these guys! They are just middlemen and will screw you!

An H&M like many other H&Ms throughout the world... It's two floors but I found the men's selection a little underwhelming, but hey it's cheap! In the evening there was about a 5 minute wait in line to checkout. Which I guess isn't that bad...

Very good staff went above and beyond! Comfortable beds. No weird smells in the dorm rooms. Functioning lockers to keep your stuff secure. Great rooftop area for chilling and meeting people. This is a backpackers hostel, not weird homeless people. Very easy to find at a great location Thanks Tasos!
