The company that makes BlackBerry used to be named Research In Motion, and it struck me how wonderfully poetic and evocative that phrase is.
 
Oh, wow. Properly internalizing this on a deep level could be one of the most valuable mental shifts for me in a while.

> Advertisements and media often push the narrative that the purpose of all our toil is to win a chance at relaxation. We're supposed to work hard at boring jobs in order to earn our vacations. We're supposed to work hard for decades so that we can retire. (We're supposed to conceive of heaven as a place where nobody does anything except lounge on clouds.)

> I call bullshit. For almost everybody, inaction is boring. That's why we pick up books, go exploring, and take up hobbies. The ground state is an active state, not a passive one.

> The actual reward state is not one where you're lazing around doing nothing. It's one where you're keeping busy, where you're doing things that stimulate you, and where you're resting only a fraction of the time. The preferred ground state is not one where you have no activity to partake in, it's one where you're managing the streams of activity precisely, and moving through them at the right pace: not too fast, but also not too slow. For that would be boring.

> And yet, most people have this model of the world where whenever they're not resting, they're taking damage. When the homework isn't done, they're taking damage. When they're reading a textbook, they're taking damage. When they go to sleep with work unfinished, they're taking damage. When they're at a large social event, they're taking damage. Some part of them yearns to be in the rest state, where they don't need to do all these things, and insofar as they aren't, they're suffering a little.

> This is a grave error, in a world where the work is never finished, where the tasks are neverending.
Many people seem to think the 'good' state of being, the 'ground' state, is a relaxed state, a state with lots of rest and very little action. Because they think the ground state is the relaxed state, they act like...

70% to 77% of Filipinos are "strongly against" same-sex marriage. Depressing.
The Laylo survey debunks the Facebook trend, where Filipino netizens show support for same-sex marriage by adopting the rainbow colors that symbolize the fight for marriage equality in the US

Only two blacklisted companies from the Philippines? I almost feel insulted.
The firms and individuals listed in Table 1 below are ineligible to be awarded a World Bank-financed contract for the periods indicated because they have been sanctioned under the Bank's fraud and corruption policy as set forth in the Procurement Guidelines or the Consultant Guidelines.
