The Mind Unchained (a collection of free thinkers)

Being transitioned , nobody wanted to play

[editors note: while this has absolutely nothing to do with the prompt, it's a well written piece ! and within the spirit of the blog, it “fits” because the amount of effort that went IN far exceeds any mis-match in having not “answered my question,” which was silly anyway.

So, she wins the exercise for herself (and its not a competition with anyone so there was nobody else playing locally in her holosphere.local.near.field (fancy words for nobody else was making an entry right there)– but also none of this is important,

they're just different ways to say something basic i can show you with my finger if i am in the same room without saying a single word or even uttering a single damn sound.. that should give you pause to consider how irrelevant and extra, and perhaps ? ;) un-natural the advent of spoken and written language is. in an evolutionary utility sense only when using survival as the baseline metric all else is extra.

I don't know. Just interesting to ponder...

The ** real ** point of all this, is teaching you to flex your electro-magnetic / if you just want to be simple about it- I'm working slowly to inspire you to get off your ass and live again, among a bunch of other stuff for you to enjoy doing that may otherwise not exist in a recognizable form or at all in the world we're headed for- unless you fucking pay attention to people like myself and consider that perhaps, perhaps- it's not that we are against the established world, or hate this or that- it's that we collectively- as this group of people who appear dis-satisified with the world, are simply trying to create an environment they enjoy and want to live in.

I do this thing a lot, when trying to understand something. This is the first time the analogy has gone in reverse, but if you understand the relationship mapping with what I do this for then you see may see it already.

I call it the cave simulation. If something seems out of place, I imagine it existing inside or nearby a cave. The only other variables that exist are me the cave, maybe a pet, maybe another person, and a fire pit, and some indication that it's safe to be there and I reside there, or at least have safe use of it. If the thing doesn't fit into a contextual reality with the cave analogy, it has one of three meanings depending on what kind of logical examination you're setting up- it either shouldn't exist and is egregiously dangerous and unnatural with consequences of some sort to utilize the thing. OR- it has a function in the modern world that isn't understood, or contextually relevant to “cave life,” and therefore its automatically classified as “extra,” and filtered out of existence and can safely be ignored if for whatever reason I don't like it, or feel it's an added and un-needed level of complexity. But- if it's neat, and I think perhaps it can be used to bridge new frontiers to either taking the damn thing apart and making its parts do new things (really i just saw a new widget i want and dont know how to create or buy them yet)– and thus instead i will make a more important point and leave the other one dangling, – the whole wide world has all these opportunities to trade your currency for more and more widgets.

here's a hint: the widget farm does not stop making widgets. ;)

okay, so Denisa wrote all this nice stuff, and I'm going to stop flapping my fingers now.

Benefits of sleeping outside

Since I started listening to my body I've made quite a lot of new discoveries. Life started to feel fun once again. Last august life just showed me one of the best soups I ever eaten: a mix between boiled and fresh ingredients, served hot :) It became a favourite of mine and mother still mentions it to this day. Last December my body showed me sleeping on the floor, and such a new universe opened up for me.. dream and health wise. Now my body showed me sleeping outside, and truly I am amazed of how I feel.

I have almost 2 weeks of sleeping out in the open air now. Zero tent or anything. Just a pillow and a fluffy wool blanket, on an improvised wooden deck and that's it. And I feel much different. In my sleep and in my day. My mind feels different. I could say a new sense of calmness but also a new sense of trust and stability. My body feels alive, happy and rejuvenated.

It might be for many reasons.

  1. First the air outside is highly oxygenated, packed with negative ions from all the surrounding nature. During night time the air is cleaner and slightly breezier so the brain gets oxygenated properly. And I feel there is more to this. A sort of electro magnetic recharge that happens by breathing in this fresh air while sleeping.

  2. Then it might be because of the natural sounds that I hear while sleeping. Crickets, trees and leafs moving above, dogs barking sometimes.. and birds chirping in the morning. Two days ago I was waken up by a bee fussing over my nose. Today I woke up by the wind gently caressing my face.

  3. It might be the natural smells that act as a sort of therapy for the brain. Especially at night the smells get intensified: the flowers from the garden, the sweetness of the grape vines near where I sleep, the smell of leafs, resins and soil. All of these smells are lacking when sleeping indoors, and I feel they bring a sort of calmness and caress to the mind while sleeping.

  4. It might be due to the natural light spectrum emitted from the atmosphere around. Even if our eyes are closed the light spectrum reaching them has a high impact on the brain while sleeping. There were several days when the moon was full and it was shining exactly on my pillow, so I slept with my head under its glow, and I love how that impacts my sleep. In the morning I am wakened up by the natural light outside, which again gives my brain a natural kick of active hormones helping me wake up naturally.

In general I feel there is an electro magnetic connection going on.. between my body, the body of the trees around, the plants, the earth, the atmosphere. I feel a sort of connection as if sleeping outside makes my body part of this network, where my body becomes an integrated piece of the environment around. And somehow I even feel the trees and elements around are taking care of me, feeling my body nurtured and protected. I feel they are so happy to be able to do this and to see a human sleeping with them. Truly I feel such an intimate indescribable connection.

  1. It might be due to the lack of concentrated electro magnetic fields that exists around a house, due to cables and devices. Even since I can remember I always had this thing where I would need to shut off all the lights in the room so i can feel I can go to sleep. I usually unplug the wifi devices, and other devices before sleeping.

These factors, and maybe more that I am not aware of, somehow changed my mood. I wake up refreshed, and the dominant feeling I feel is peace. I feel at peace with my self, my mind. The dreams also feel more integrated. I get eager when thinking I need to go to sleep again. And even now as I write this, I am outside in “bed”, and the crickets are chirping all over and they make me wanna fall asleep :)

I had a random thought – this is maybe a place holder for later :)

By Diana

I'm not that advanced at mathematics, though I'm coming to realise how important it is as a pure language. Therefore that will be my first memory of what the video was communicating.

Ancient structures have been positioned mathematically, not just on earth but in the outer realms (namely Mars) as well.

Numbers hold a certain frequency and this is evident in the sacred geometry of nature.

The positions of the sacred structures appear to be part of some sort of numerical grid.

We live in a matrix that has been constructed for reasons that are not apparent from the video, but merely suggested at.

I fell asleep for a large part of the video and would be interested to watch it again at some point.

  • editors note: Diana's submission ends above the horizontal line. I do not change anything an author writes in their submission, I may correct a simple typo if I see it, but I am in general not looking. This added section is only to enrich your experience over-all, as you may watch the video she mentioned here permanently by clicking the link below.

Watch The Code – By Carl P. Munck <— for anyone who wishes to learn and explore the video too !

If you can save a copy of it somehow, that will be best for watching because it is a long video, and because of web server things, it's just easier for you if you download it if you can but if streaming is all you got- that's okay too. ;)

By Diana

Interesting reflection

I enjoy people who are straightforward and deep. If they beat about the bush and provide too much irrelevant detail I lose focus and therefore interest as I struggle to follow what they are communicating.

I love people with intelligence tempered by goodwill and humility. People who make themselves look good at the expense of others are definitely a turn off.

I like honesty in people, not the type that knows no boundaries but the type that can stimulate deeper connection and trust.

I love an adventurous spirit. Even better a person that inspires others to share adventures. An initiator, an inspiration and a 'devil may care' attitude.

I love humour, and have lost my sense of humour in my darkest times, so having people in my life who can trigger laughter is pretty important.

I love generosity. People who can share from their heart and will help others with discernment. It doesn't matter so much what they share, it is more about sensing a need and having the generosity of spirit to do what they can in the moment to address that need.

Hi there...

Integrity Honesty Expression Sense of Humor Adaptability

Watching this Carl Munck video, not sure why, maybe it will explain itself.

^ Nigel's contribution.

important note: Nigel did not actually finish his thought! Maybe the video blew his mind, maybe he got busy! Either way, he showed a powerful intention by creating his second post. As a human being this communicates a clear interest in whatever is going on.

Before you roll your eyes at me, please realize that I study people as a passion, because I have really really good parents, and I see a lot missing in the general fabric of the world with regard to how we treat each-other, that I was lucky enough to grow up with “under my belt,” as dad likes to say. I hope to give those gifts to other adults, slowly through modeling the healthy behavior, slowly fixing problems without trying, by getting people to play along in the little worlds that I create.

That's why I do all of these things. I want to give everyone the same opportunity of perspective I have, because that is powerful, and it is a basis that guides everything I do.

To be very clear, I'm not trying to turn you into me, I just see a lot of bad things in this world, that I grew up with the right instructions from my parents to avoid, but I see people making these mistakes constantly, everywhere- as adults, and their lives would be SO much better if they just learned not to do a few simple things..

and enjoy themselves that much more!

There is no right or wrong way to live life, and that's an uncomfortable truth about the uncertainty of possibility, that is simply so large to attempt to comprehend, it cannot be comprehended by most people with how they currently understand themselves and how they relate and position themselves in the world based on their actions and that understanding as a base line- that guides and becomes a part of their “character and later personality.” It becomes personality in an aspect or quality when it later combines with their unique inborn traits and preferences as a being.

This is a natural combination but given modern variables it is not a useful human instinct, but instead of updating it, or suffering- lets just try to understand the element of our nature and try to work with it, instead of being taken for a ride we do not want to be on.

Since this article is not trying to go super deep into psychology and behavior so I will respect myself and your attention span, and speak no more there for today.

the rest of this is not ordered correctly but is mostly important with some supporting contextual embellishment, but not intentionally grandiose.

this blog is a mini project to get people feeling safer to be open emotionally and share again. that is why this is important.

Also, if you don't know my character well, you may think of me as a good-natured teacher, or old zen master who really isn't – but just is a guy in the village, who likes to see people having a good time.

also it is early and i have a lot to do that wasn't this today, but here are my best efforts at collecting every relevant thought and summarizing it: I may edit this down for clarity later, it is pretty damn long , but it is not terribly rambling in tone, use that to decide if you continue reading, or just leave now knowing that I don't want people posting “i watched the video but i dont know what to make of it”.

All I am asking is you answer the question, or do nothing at all. Don't submit something that isn't an actual answer to the prompt. I will automatically delete these from now on, regardless of how well I know you. If you need to save a draft, I believe the easiest way for you to do that is to create a account first, then I think it will save your text automatically as long as you keep the window open, and dont visit another website on that page and click back, expecting to see your text waiting.

That's it, lol – the rest is “why” and examples, considerations and things maybe you didn't or did consider but I feel would be great to understand so i wrote them out for you-

but the most important thing to convey here is don't post until you're ready, there is no rush- just wait till you're ready to share :)

Nigel is not being singled out , BUT I am using what he did in his good nature, by leaving a sentence in my submission que- to dangle and dance and tell me he wants to play this game! :–) Imagine how excited I was and am.

So this post talks about what i hope you can get out of joining in and contributing to this project and why I think it may surprise you in a fantastic way, for that just finish this short (post) versus how much I usually babble and give supporting context , I try to draw circles and fill the inside parts, with you in the middle- but not always appropriate,

okay the long winded well meaning story-teller-cave-floor-social-scientist-engineer-friend-of-yours who is writing this wants to lay out the following procedural concepts: about this place-

please ignore the lack of organization and just read, or dont.

So here i took the points that i needed to make, and just dropped them into a much shorter contextual vehicle (Nigel's incomplete but well meaning post.)

I then took his post and talked around it, holding it up like a cute teddy bear at a conference as a supporting visual aid but to illustrate as an example without any negativity.. ** what ** that kind of thing does, and how its exactly the thing we are trying to fix! behaviorally emotionally~

Please pause read the last paragraph again from “so here i took..” and then try to feel your heart smile, realize nobody is being poked fun at, and read the rest of this article without further anything else needing be said for understanding :)

Also because of the good groovy opportunities that come when people generally all trust each-other mean well- then you would see a new town soon where you live, in some way or other! But this problem of trust, like Depeche Mode so famously sang about is a big deal, because its eroded largely in our modern “contemporary” world.

and instead replaced by a faster and faster stream of information- which I honestly think is a consequence of this psychic imbalance in most people. because it is a logical extensibility of “lets just add more stuff until we ignore and forget the thing we didnt do”

it echos a busy person avoiding a deadline, but the larger meta pattern of “how people generally interface with information and themselves” without additional thought or suggestion, goal or instruction – the default setting seems to be slowly getting stuck in the “full throttle” mode.

Guess what happens next? problems, and then large scale burn out. ;)

So this is an important lesson because right now we are in “problems” mode but I hope we can globally perhaps avoid a full scale melt down again,

I'd like to be here a while and see little kids be happy and run up to me and show me rocks and shit, for at least a decade before i kick this planet and end up coming back as a little baby again. LOL

So hey, Nigel- ;–) all good, here i hope you are okay being mentioned here? ::offers a hug or a cup of uncle johns coffee::

Yes Nigel, Watch the video, I have a feeling you will be surprised by this one. :)

Since we are new and setting up how this works and getting who will play with us in this fun experiment about learning and growing, I have went ahead and published your post ahead of “it having your opinion inside of it.”

:) But normally, I will not plan on publishing a post like this, which is one thing I hope to avoid in this mini project (that could become popular?) if people enjoy it and benefit somehow, or just keep playing along learning and sharing about the others playing along with you/us :)

So next time just form an opinion even if its fast, or wait to post until you know how to tell us your feeling on the subject asked for our prompt :D Because I am a bit too oriented to process, I see your draft here and assume its one of two things:

  • you got excited and something came up and you did not finish writing :)
  • you were worried you would forget, so wrote something- as a coping skill for a fast paced world, hoping that your effort would be percieved by others playing this game with us, that you had tried to make a second effort in good faith, and “left a mark- nigel will return to finish his second post” (that is something i hope to heal) in those who play

(this is a slow paced game, so I approved this one, but go ahead and make another submission,,,, at your leisure) – still same length and everything! 4-5 sentences or ideas you took away from what you did glom onto in the video

  • why was this video interesting to you * ? is the question prompt ! hehehehe

okay bye :) When you re-submit a whole answer instead of calling role (God I am so glad you are here to play. Nigel- you have a fascinating brain. we will delete this entry and replace it with your entry, or perhaps we will leave it in the stream for others to learn that this is a safe place and there is no hurry, judgement, or conclusion drawn if you play sporadically. This isn't about allegiance, or consistent participation – its just about trying something new-

that isn't new- but its getting that way in society. this whole thing is about sharing an opinion, in a world where you dont feel that may necessarily be welcome, or safe – but you realize it's still ** important ** but the fabric of the world appears to be somewhat changing a lot, so this is a tool here this shared journal, to feel a little bit more normal, and practice remaining open and emotionally connected, with your other humans.

so i'm leaving this post in our stream, and Nigel don't worry about submission # 2- just play along and drop in when you see it fitting, I will post #3 sometime today (9-14-2020) so if that one sounds fun just play with that prompt and we will continue on enriched by our mutually enhanced perspective (you knowing more what i am trying to create for people) (and if it changes that's fine but the general thrust is to be * helpful * to the end of keeping people communicating,

somewhat- – that layer right under the operant “action” of “Hey there I am Bob and came to this place to buy a hamburger,” and that is transaction-ally why I am here.” vs Bob goes to the restaurant and looks for someone to greet- to ensure they are open first, before going inside, and checks for signs of other eaters.

That part gets skipped in modern life and we check “online” on a website to ask a computer if the restaurant is open instead of going outside to the restaurant and starting with that way. This is crazy and backwards and cannot be a good evolution in most cases- (and maybe i dont understand what good can come from this yet) but the quantum shift in PROCEDURE...

  • from being able to know if a place or thing exists in a servicable fashion to you (ie bobs restaurant of choice is open and cooking that day)– to being able to know the information before even leaving the house-

well – this advancement that I am trying to isolate and explain here, that “process” or “logical way of doing it better because now we have yelp and google” – is such a quantum shift in PROCESS FLOW,

that it actually is a core active aspect functionally in the complexity introduced with respect to the erosion of the go look and see and bang on it with the rock human model we have evolved with since the presumed beginnings of our more protean sounding origin stories we have all read growing up and pondered later as adults at least once.

this blog article now serves several functions, and wasn't even supposed to be an article ! But now, it holds more meaning- because I put more effort into it- and saw a few things that were really important to me, about how you would hopefully see this blog project and be enticed to understand the goal, and therefore see the value in it, and at least try to play along- or tell someone who would get more benefit than you,

(and that is you acting in service to others, if you've never thought about it that way,) service to others isn't always a painful thing that involves planning and deadlines and a concrete expectation,

it can be as simple as smiling at the person you have no fucking idea who they are when they look at you as you cross by in the street intersection, or at the corner. That is another thing entirely , but thats the base level we must start at to repair some semblance of cohesive unity across humanity~

between us as we move around and try to enjoy and repair our home best we understand how to. Because -that- is an instinctual process, and it is primal level stuff,

and don't think for an iota that you are immune to the stress caused by seeing or hearing about destruction to your home planet.

If you butt heads here with me you are in denial and i don't want to hear from you about it- with all respect meant, your energy would detract like kryptonite- from this- just join us instead and open yourself up to the last time you felt safe sharing something vulnerable and contribute your first answer here. :)

I'm trying to make sure that in this crazy world, bob does not turn into a weird fucking hermit who does not trust it is safe any longer to go outside, I'm doing this for the bobs. Because to be totally forth-right, I think right now most of us feel a lot like Bob, in one way or another.

More later, but this all needed to be said and some of it, has been un-said swimming a few days in my brain and blood- and waiting for the right catalyst to increase the visibility of the fire we are building – a trans-formative one, see most people only think of fire as destruction. challenge your perceptions.

thanks for showing up. thats why you're here. come back soon. I love all of you, because you are all worth while, and you are all really unique.

-Omar (doctorbeans) (or ramo or ramon borema – which is a joke about aura borealis and likely the only kind of permutation i can change my facebook name to without the thing noticing i am not actually ramo, LOL,

there are sections of my facebook profile I have intentionally not updated since 2007- when I populated it with things like movies Id watched recently around the time when I joined), so it probably will continue to assume I'm Ramo- since that is easiest for it, to not generate more data trying to verify my identity.

Either way I never hold back so regardless what the site thinks im called my actions speak for my characterization well enough.

Bottom line though is everything I do is borne out of an effort to help someone, that I don't immediately do to entertain myself somehow, out of good nature.

I never try to harm someones sense of self for my entertainment. Those people are consumed by a wicked psychic disease,

which is very fixable.

MAKE a great morning !

i have some coffee left over and i am very grateful for this. I will release prompt # 3 within the next 2 hours. come back soon and check!

(and if the visual is fun) you can imagine right now I am sitting behind the cave chiseling the prompt into a tablet, with roman numerals III atop, but our cave allegory I continue to relate back to, and will for some time until we more-so globally live that way, so get used to it-

and I am taking the care to congeal the idea for #3, without rushing it, and now I am off.. ;–)

See you perhaps in 2 hours when you return from your present hunt. I'll be out back by the wood pile, cooking the village lunch.

five things I admire in other people:

  1. a never ending commitment to personal growth through experience and later reflection, iteration, etc.
  2. the ability to admit ones actions caused another discomfort or problem. 3.ingenuity
  3. deference to context and respect of other life at all costs minus ending another one to preserve another one. (ive spent my whole life grappling with this one and i still can't rationalize it.)
  4. someone who always leaves room for option D, because life is an ever changing thing with more moving parts than we can see, its important to not become too invested in any one outcome or perspective, especially the kind where you give up on yourself and wait to die. I did that for a full decade, trust me it isn't fun if you aleady know that. and I had many opportunities to give up and die, but guess who has shit to do?

love you, where's your post? :D
