Production, Maintenance, and Leisure, the three main functions of mankind.

Everything we do can be put in one of those 3 categories. Does it matter how much time we spend doing each?

Now I continue on to chapter 3... How does categorizing human behavior help me find flow?

Eggs I'll bet you already have plenty of flow going on...❤️❤️ 9mo

I guess this is different from his popular book Flow?

Anyway, it's the next audiobook I got on loan, so I've got 18 days to finish.

This is a short story with a lifetime of enlightenment.

I like how it all led up to Om, the sound of all instances of life and the Universe simultaneously... Perfection.

How to Read a Book | Mortimer J. Adler, Charles Van Doren

I feel like if I continue to read books for the rest of my life, I would end up writing this book. The breakdown of how to read a book seems pretty intuitive if you have read a lot of books. A lot of what the author is saying makes sense, but only because I've read a lot of nonfiction. Had I tried to read this back in high school or college, I would probably not find it helpful at all because of it's length and age.

I will always love her crude jokes. Great audiobook so far.

I cringed and laughed when she said something along the lines of... "I truly admire and envy a man's one simplistic need to put his dick in any wet hole. How easy my life would be if that was all I needed." ???

Ddzmini But she tells it like it is... in a way that we can laugh and enjoy the truth 🤣🤣🤣 13mo

Brave New World | Aldous Huxley

I'm finally on the last chapter... And just as I feared, the book lost its shock value halfway through and got all philosophical. 😑 The environment was so well setup that I was able to guess how people would react before they did. I was really hoping for more action and conflict...

"The fact is important enough to bear repeating: people organize their brains with conversation. If they don't have anyone to tell their story to, they lose their minds. Like hoarders, they cannot unclutter themselves. The input of the community is required for the integrity of the individual psyche. To put it another way: It takes a village to organize a mind."

I dunno... I liked some of it, and it started off fair to both genders, but the more he talks, the more I find out his upbringing and his reality are nothing like mine... A Canadian who grew up in a tiny town and married his childhood friend. Peterson defends a lot of the old ways and it doesn't motivate me the way it does others. Too smart for his own good perhaps?

The author never says pride gets in the way of healing post-traumatic stress and unresolved trauma. It's more complicated than that. @Eggs

Denial of Death | Ernest Becker

Just a random book recommendation

quote

post image

We are all filled with a longing for the wild. There are few culturally sanctioned antidotes for this yearning. We were taught to feel shame for such a desire. We grew our hair long and used it to hide our feelings. But the shadow of Wild Woman still lurks behind us during our days and in our nights. No matter where we are, the shadow that trots behind us is definitely four-footed.

This quote appeared in Waking the Tiger by Peter Levine

My nutritionist recently gave me adrenal supplements. Not long after, I found this audiobook in the library. It turns out that the main factor of weight gain is stress... Stress from toxic foods, toxic thoughts, lack of sleep, financial stress, etc. Stress wears out your adrenals and messes with your cortisol and circadian rhythm. If you are wired but tired all the time, read this book now. Proteins in the AM, carbs in the PM. @Eggs

The power and beauty of physical laws is that they apply everywhere, whether or not you choose to believe in them. In other words, after the laws of physics, everything else is opinion. Not that scientists don't argue. We do. A lot. But when we do, we typically express opinions about the interpretation of insufficient or ratty data on the bleeding frontier of our knowledge.

@Eggs #nonfiction #science #stem #physics

Reggie If you can take a break from school reading, read Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant. I think it has a lot of scientist archetypes, and the plot of killer mermaids is just fun. But there is a lot of science in there, check it out. 2y

... it should be clear that racism is a problem that begins with a denial of individualism. A racist believes that some group trait always trumps all individual traits. This is the first error, and it stems from a desire to simplify the reality of group heterogeneity (people really are different) for the sake of convenience or quick thinking.

Can one imagine what it would be like 30 years ago, for national security reasons the US government took responsibility for guaranteeing that every man, woman, and child had a cellphone, called it a right, and justified it for national defense purposes? It would have been a nightmare. Quality would have never improved, prices would be sky-high, and distribution lousy.
But we now have affordable cell phones, and the prices will continue to drop...

At the time, Ali's resistance to war and the military draft was seen by a majority of Americans to be "unpatriotic." But they did not understand that patriotism is the act of standing up to the government when the government is wrong, and at great risk stand firmly on principles that protect the freedoms of all people. Those who resist the state nonviolently, based on their own principles, deserve our support.

"People often say that what this country needs is for people in Washington to stop fighting and just get the job done. To achieve that, we need more Bipartisanship. I don't agree. If two parties with two sets of bad ideas cooperate, the result is not good policy, but policy that is extremely bad. What we really need are correct political and economic ideas, regardless of the party that pushes them."

Did you know? Captive primates, if they are to breed, are shown videos of other primates being pregnant and giving birth so when they are pregnant themselves, it won't shock them and cause anxiety. Also, as part of the breeding program, the primates watch human mothers nurse their babies. Animals need mentors just like we do to cope with new situations. Very interesting book... Hopefully I can borrow it again and finish it.

Reggie That‘s fascinating. 2y

You have been in many random controlled experiments without knowing it, sometimes carried out by code, so who's responsible? Your taps, clicks, purchases, and gameplay duration are all tracked and modeled. You better believe that everything that can be engineered to get you hooked, will be. #ethics #tech #nonfiction
