Some time ago, I had a life-changing experience while in Japan, in this case, it was not about an event, but about a person. Sometimes I meet some people and they mention that they learned many things from or I inspired them somehow, well this time it was my turn to get inspired. Her name was Emma Crawford, and little did she know, how much she would shape my ideas and influence the processes…"Emma and Carl Sagan"
Last Australian winter I found myself walking around in Canberra with Jenny Puisto when we stumbled upon a history museum, walked in and got into a projection room. There were playing a short movie about the hippie movement in the 60’s or 70’s and Woodstock so there were some young people there and they were talking about love and peace, and the fair distribution of our planet wealth and resources. So Jenny started laughing and…"Meditation"
So my students ask how much does it costs to travel abroad and visit many countries, but there’s not really an objective answer to that question. Any country you go to you can spend a million dollars or spend no money at all, it’s up to you. And it was interesting to learn how each new generation has different goals than the previous ones. and this generation’s dream seems to be to travel around. Why…"Traveling: part 2"
Been a good boy lately, did some exercise, inspired a few people, seeded most of my torrents most of the times, but still don’t feel like I’m making any difference. I learned the words “chigeopi eopseoyo” something like “I’m unemployed” in Korean, to answer people’s questions. And I remember when I was in Japan and learned the acronym NEET (neeto) which stands for “Not in Employment, Education or Training” so I could accurately explain what…"NEET"
Some months ago I stumbled upon the works of Dr. Bass, and the natural hygiene diet, and I found it quite interesting, especially the part about sequential eating: http://drbass.com/sequential.html So I read it, it made sense. I tested it, It worked, and have been trying to practice it, basically it says that different food is digested differently, the order in the one we eat is important, and it’s better to eat the more watery food…"ajumas and the bibimbap"
When I thought about writing a blog, I had no idea what to write about, but knew what I didn’t want to write about. It shouldn’t be me complaining about something I don’t like and it shouldn’t be about trying to convince people to think like me. It should be fun and make people think at the same time. Easy to read, and to understand. Not so long and not so smartassly-written Sex, religion, politics?…"Traveling: part 1"
Due to the recent events in the US, protests, police brutality, arrests, pepper spray, etc. I found myself forced to re-analyze my own thoughts, as systematically, and objectively as I’m able to right now to see if I can understand them better. STEP 1: Where do I stand now? As for today, I’m 27 years of age and in my mind*, I can’t just justify engaging in any kind of violence, not physical nor verbal.…"Ideas 1: no-violence"
Some time ago I realized if I wanted to keep having this lifestyle I would have to make some sacrifices and clothes was one of them. Long distance walking/cycling/hitchhiking, trespassing, dumpster diving, squatting, treasure hunting, outdoor sleeping, and changing CS hosts every week for a year or more couldn’t be done with a 10 kg backpack or luggage. For optimum flexibility, it had to be reduced to 4 kg or less. And it had…"Winter is here"
