  1. A simple idea describes why we tend to have so many problems. And that is the idea of "instinct mismatch." The idea that our instincts were calibrated for a much, much different world. Hunger is the most common example. Back in the day, the rules were simple. Find something to eat. If it tasted good, eat as much of it as you could. Those that this simple, DNA programmed "eating rule" the STRONGEST would tend to survive. Those that had this unconscious urge the strongest would be more motivated to find food, more motivated to eat food, and more motivated
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec30Post.mp4 There are three very simple, yet powerful ideas, that, when put together, will make all the difference. The first one is imagined to be good, but is really bad. The second and third are thought to be neutral, but are, in really, utterly fantastic. The first one: That is the idea of SHOULD. Most everybody has an idea of what other people SHOULD do. This is the source of all frustration, as the Buddha once said. Thinking somebody SHOULD do something, and then they don't, is frustrating. You learn a pick
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun24Post.mp4 Losing weight is tough. Or it can be tough. If you've got a good reason, it can be pretty easy. This requires you have some kind of a counter balance against the desire to eat. For example, if you were going to be in a movie where you had to take off your shirt, this would be a pretty decent motivator. You imagine the short term pleasure of eating a big plate of chili cheese fries. But that short term, NOW, pleasure is immediately outweighed by both the positive and negative implications. IF you DO enjoy th
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr03Post.mp4 A very common trope in romantic movies is the guy or gal who "gets" the other guy or gal. This is the opposite of another common romantic movie trope. That when two people are getting closer and closer, one of them is TERRIFIED that the other person will find out who they REALLY are. And when this happens, it's over. These are two sides of the same coin. The coin of who we really are on the inside. The fear side is us being TERRIFIED of being "found out" and forever rejected. The best-case-scenario side

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug28Post.mp4 A very common idea in self-development is being broken. Of having tried all kinds of ideas and programs, yet you're still stuck. What does, "stuck" mean, exactly? It's a metaphor that approximates a physical situation. Like a car that is stuck in the mud. The engines work, the tires work, but you aren't getting any traction. The work done by the engine is being wasted. No forward movement. Another physical description of being stuck is like when goofy criminals try to sneak in through the chimney.

  8. There's a lot of cool hallucinations in mathematics. Way back in junior high school, I was a super-geek. I loved reading books about quantum physics. Books that had all the math taken out, but had all the cool stuff. Like the idea that a photon is sometimes a particle, and sometimes a wave. But in pure math there are some doozies. There are some shapes, that have an infinite circumference, but a finite volume. Meaning if you took a piece of string and tried to wrap it around the outside, it would go on forever. But if you measured the area inside this in
  9. Everywhere you look, you'll find cycles. Earth around the sun. Moon around the Earth. Earth around it's access. Tides, seasons. Even astrological "ages" are based on the cycles built into our galaxy and solar system, as they are dependent on star configurations. Bees have their own set of cycles. They can tell when the summer solstice happens. When the suns angles reach a maximum at the maximum point of the day. Bees are good with angles. When they go out looking for food, they come back and report their findings. They fly around in a figu
  10. The other night I watched a YouTube video about the Mandelbrot set. It's a fractal pattern, based on imaginary numbers. (I find a lot in common between mathematics and hypnosis...) A fractal pattern is a shape that keeps repeating the more you zoom in. It also has the curious property of having an infinite circumference, but a finite volume. Meaning the squiggly line going around the outside goes on forever. But the area inside this closed loop of infinity is finite. But it's also in a lot of natural shapes. Trees, roots and branches each are like fracta
  11. One of the laws of economics is the idea of an opportunity cost. Everything has a cost. Even free stuff. (There's generally a reason why it's free...) Even if you shift in your seat, you are spending energy (a calorie or two) to end up in a more comfortable position. But when thinking of doing or buying things, we usually only think of the direct costs. At least consciously. If you want a burrito, for example, it will cost five bucks. Or maybe some kind of effort, if the burrito store is a ways from your house. But also embedded into getting anythi
  12. Most human problems can be tied to a mismatch in instincts. Hunger is the easiest to understand. Way back in the day, it was a benefit to be MORE hungry than there was food available. It kept us motivated, always moving. Even today, being "hungry" means being motivated. We want something that we don't have. So we do whatever it takes to get it. But on a literal level, our hunger instinct doesn't help us so much. If you've ever gone on a diet, you know how difficult it is. Sure, there are plenty of tricks to play on your hunger. Drink water befo
