10 Things To Do To Your Brain Before The New Year

Very Clever. What's that noise in the background?

10 things to let go of before the New Year:

1. Let go of all thoughts that don't make you feel empowered and strong.

  • Become a bully instead of a whim because bullies truly experience empowerment
2. Let go of feeling guilty for doing what you truly want to do.
  • I don't feel guilty for anything I have ever done be it bad or good
3. Let go of the fear of the unknown; take one small step and watch the path reveal itself.
  • Take one small step toward my path and it will be the last step you will ever take.
4. Let go of regrets; at one point in your life, that “whatever” was exactly what you wanted.
  • Now, it's just a matter of whenever.
5. Let go of worrying; worrying is like praying for what you don’t want.
  • Plus buying hair dye is expensive
6. Let go of blaming anyone for anything; be accountable for your own life. If you don’t like something, you have two choices, accept it or change it.
7. Let go of thinking you are damaged; you matter, and the world needs you just as you are.
  • Your animals need you more
8. Let go of thinking your dreams are not important; always follow your heart.
  • Follow your heart all the way to the nut house where you can dream delusional dreams
9. Let go of thinking everyone else is happier, more successful or better off than you. You are right where you need to be. Your journey is unfolding perfectly for you.
  • Yes. If you have visited this site, you are right where you need to be.
10. Let go of thinking there's a right and wrong way to do things or to see the world. Enjoy the contrast and celebrate the diversity and richness of life.

Flashed face distortion effect: Grotesque faces from relative

Jason M Tangen, Sean C Murphy, Matthew B Thompson

Abstract. We describe a novel face distortion effect resulting from the fast-paced presentation of eye-aligned faces. When cycling through the faces on a computer screen, each face seems to become a caricature of itself and some faces appear highly deformed, even grotesque. The degree of distortion is greatest for faces that deviate from the others in the set on a particular dimension (eg if a person has a large forehead, it looks particularly large). This new method of image presentation, based on alignment and speed, could provide a useful tool for investigating contrastive distortion effects and face adaptation.

The Cozy Lifestyle of the Mentally "Impaired" and Their Canisters

Where Will You Be When Judicial Malfeasance Enforces Your Disappearance?

Forgotten in life. Forgotten in death. Finding the family of those who are buried in copper canisters.

Library of Dust Film Festival 2012  16 minutes

Photos are taken of the mysterious corrosive effect on the canisters and several histories of these forgotten souls are revealed in this unique tale.
Library of Dust — an artful depiction of copper canisters containing the cremated remains of individual patients from the Oregon State Insane Asylum, a state-run psychiatric hospital, who died there between 1883 and the 1970s, their bodies never claimed by their families.

Maisel photographed many of the 3,500 canisters with incredible detail, their multicolor blooming corrosion reminiscent of nature’s wonders like vibrant sunset skies or rich bedrock textures or the aurora borealis.
