Offended

 

I was sceptical about a social experiment a friend of mine had told me about. So, I decided to try it myself.

The experiment consists in treating people exactly the same way they treat you, for example:

When someone asks you a question, you answer using exactly the same attitude, tone of voice, volume level and body language.

Despite the fact I was very sceptical at the beginning, after a few tries the results baffled me.

I didn’t have to gather a big sample to learn a very interesting fact of human nature. Continue reading

Are you proud?

After all these years of living your life in your own way, after acquiring habits, ideas, skills and knowledge and creating the person you are now. What do you think of the results? Are you proud of your life?

And I am talking on a general level, not specifics.

I know there are many things you have accomplished and that can make your feel proud of yourself. And yes, there are thousands of things you haven’t achieved yet but that shouldn´t make you feel less proud of who you are now. Continue reading

Modifying your past (Warning: Crazy thoughts ahead enter at your own risk)

With Quantum mechanics our common logic does not work, it doesn’t matter how much we try to make sense of it, it is amazing but it´s real.

More and more universities around the world are working on different theories and experiments to try to understand the bases of quantum world. And the conclusions, or at least the results of those experiments are totally mind blowing. That is why Niels Bohr said that if you read an hour about Quantum Physics and your head doesn’t hurt, you didn’t understand anything. Continue reading

Balance

I was trying to keep my balance by walking on a small line drawn on the pavement on my way back home.  I was visualising the way we sometimes try to keep the “balance” in our lives.

Have you seen how the most we try to “force” a new habit, the harder it is?

Food, exercise, positive thinking, new ideas, diets,etc.

The harder I tried to walk on the line without losing my balance, the harder it was to keep it. I easily lost it and I had to make an effort to get back “on the line”. Continue reading

The right universe (Note to myself)

I was reading about this theory that states that we are constantly shifting from different universe all the time, but this is done so fast we cannot notice the shifting. We are only aware of the universe we are tuned into at this precise moment.

As usual in modern physics, the observer is the one who determines with his/her attention the frequency of the universe we are experiencing.

The whole theory is very interesting and as all theories in science they have their followers and their retractors. But as we are our own personal laboratory, I think is a good point to elaborate a working hypotheses. Continue reading
