How can we communicate and pick up on body language, which accounts for 80% of "the true message", according to david eigen, Ph. D. author of many books about men using a Jungian. With airlines telling us to "sit down and shut up, bag searches and delays, gas prices too high, not to mention the cost of hotels and meals this may be a better way.


Now is my "mac" computer could just logically analyze my moods and tell me how to improve my communication skills, verbally, then we would have it made in the shade. Maybe if I put this lead wire here, in the left frontal lobe...............

Neural Correlates of Consciousness - The MIT Press-Unconscious Review

Neural Correlates of Consciousness - The MIT Press
Philosophers have, for thousands of years, from Socrates, to Bertrand Russel, to "name your favorite" debated and journaled "consciousness" of humans and machine.  Can physical states of the human brain, with its many folds, generate epistomology=my fav subject.  Speculation on my part-of my brain, I know which not.
for Hamlet, it was "to be or not to be" that was the question, his indecision led him to a death, not  quite honorable, yet the question was never answered. If he were here in body, "fat and scant of breath" with the requisite metabolic syndrome and a body mass of 30+, could or should he read this book. Maybe.

His poetry is notable for its use of formal language, as well as insights on topics of life using spiritual terms. Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of twenty-six poetic essays. The book became especially popular during the 1960s with the American counterculture and New Age movements. Since it was first published in 1923, The Prophet has never been out of print. Having been translated into more than twenty languages, it was one of the bestselling books of the twentieth century in the United States.

One of his most notable lines of poetry in the English-speaking world is from "Sand and Foam" (1926), which reads : "Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it so that the other half may reach you". This was plagiarised by John Lennon and placed, though in a slightly altered form, into the song Julia from The Beatles' 1968 album The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album).</span>                         <span property="dc:type" content="Text">             </object>    <div style="margin: 6px auto 3px auto; font-family: Helvetica,Arial,Sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; -x-system-font: none; display: block;">    <a href="http://www.scribd.com/upload" style="text-decoration: underline;">Publish at Scribd</a> or <a href="http://www.scribd.com/browse" style="text-decoration: underline;">explore</a> others:            <a href="http://www.scribd.com/explore/Books/Fiction" style="text-decoration: underline;">Fiction</a>              <a href="http://www.scribd.com/explore/Books/" style="text-decoration: underline;">Books</a>                  <a href="http://www.scribd.com/tag/love" style="text-decoration: underline;">love</a>              <a href="http://www.scribd.com/tag/poetry" style="text-decoration: underline;">poetry</a>          </div>

Susan Boyle's former vocal coach has warned the showbiz publicity machine could destroy the singer's career as fans, cybersquatters and big business cash in on her newfound fame.

The 48-year-old's stirring performance of I Dreamed A Dream on Britain's Got Talent TV show has clocked up more than 75 million views on video sharing website YouTube.

A 1999 charity album on which Boyle sings Cry Me A River has attracted bids of up to $2500 on eBay.

TABS: a Metaphysical "Di Vinci" concept model

Everything in the multiverse, even branes, are egg,mobius-stip shaped. I would prefer a spiral for tabs. human eye seeks horizon, but metaphysically, and computers emulate higher levels (Plato: “as above so below” we need to think on more of an ancient traditional singularity. a conceptual artist. all of the suggestions I read are brilliant and creative. This is just a stab at “making the familiar strange; and the strange familiar” hopefully it will span some expansive spiritual visions.  thanks www.azarask.in

SparkNotes: Albert Einstein: Times of Peace and War

In the years just preceding Hitler\'s rise to power in Germany in 1933, Einstein spent less and less time in Berlin until he ultimately left the country for good, spending the final two decades of his life at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. However, one of the major reasons that for Einstein\'s early absences from Germany was not political but health-related; Einstein was consistently falling sick. In February of 1928 he became seriously ill on a visit to Switzerland. To assist him with his correspondence, he hired as his personal secretary Helen Dukas, an intelligent and efficient woman from Swabia. Helen traveled with the Einsteins on lecture tours, moved with them to the United States in 1933, and cared for Einstein after the death of his second wife Elsa in 1936.

Sacred:West Winds (Arkansas) Damaged in Ice Storm - from Wind Daughter

  • Dear Ones, 
  • Zan, actor teacher, native american healer, counselor/student 
  •     I wanted to let all of you know what is happening here in Arkansas .  Seven days ago we were hit really hard with an ice and snow storm.  This storm came exactly 51 weeks after the tornado hit my little town in Feb. 2008.  Not only did Arkansas receive great damage, but MO. TN. and KY did as well.  From what I have heard, KY received the worst. 
  •  by Wind Daughter at West Winds
    2360312330.jpg     I have been without power now for 7 days and they are expecting it to possibly take at least 2 weeks to get it restored.  I do have intermittent phone service now, but was without for 3 1/2 days.  I had 4 to 10 inches of ice and snow on my flat roof and spent the better part of 3 days chipping it and pushing it to the edge and off to prevent its collapse. Temps were cold so I couldn't work for too long at a stretch.  Most of the ice has melted and the ground is saturated.  I have walked the land close to the house and have about 30 trees down, with many more damaged.  Today I went out for the first time and discovered many more trees along the road that runs the east side of the property.  From the garden area looking out over the valley, there are more down than I can count.  As I drove to town, I witnessed so much damage.  The Tree Nation has taken a very hard hit.
  •    Back home at West Winds, I have been able to stay warm with the wood stove.  I have exhausted the wood pile closest to the house and am now carrying wood from the sweat lodge site.  I pile the wood onto a tarp and drag it back to the house.  I'm thankful that my years of training taught me to always have water drawn up.  I have stored gallons of water in the basement as well as in the pantry.  There are about 80 gallons stored in the cave.
  •    Getting to the cave was an ordeal.  Many branches and a few trees blocked the way.  Crawling over and under I managed to get through.  I did my work as best I could during the daylight.  I used oil lamps at night.  None of the buildings here were damaged.  And all the animals are safe.  I do worry about the wild ones in the woods.  I have a gas stove so have been able to cook.  I heat water to wash dishes and to bathe.
  •    Steven, who has done so much work on the land here, finally made it to West Winds. It took him 4 hours to go 13 miles because of all the trees blocking the roads.  He had a chainsaw and worked his way here. He later brought in a generator (which was a dangerous adventure in itself), and now the fridge and freezer are working.  I have a lamp and can use the computer again.  I finally got all the ice off the porch today.  The forecast is for more rain with temps going into the teens.  Snow is predicted for Tuesday.The ice is worse. As the ice melts, the ground gives way and more trees come down.
  •    The Dance Ground was spared as well as the Medicine Wheel.  The Earth Mound is intact.  All in all everything will be OK.  It could have been much worse.  We have been blessed.
  •    I have asked Pat to please send this out to everyone.  I ask for prayers for all the Tree and Plant People, as well as the animals. 
  •    If anyone has a generator to spare, 'West Winds' could surely use one.  There will be a lot of time and great expense to clear and cut all the trees that are down, as well as taking down the ones that are damaged.  Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. 

  • If you are able to make a donation to help with the West Winds land restoration, please make the check payable to "Wind Daughter" and send it to me at: P.O. Box 2388, Mountain View, AR 72560.  My phone number is: 870/368-7877. 
  • If you can't reach me, please contact Pat at 
  • admin@winddaughterwestwinds.com and let her know that you are trying to contact me.  She will be checking that email daily for me.
  •  
  • "West Winds is dedicated as a Spiritual Center for all of you.  I hope you will visit us soon."

Who really invented Television?

Broken News:TV©1928 Scotsman-John Logie Baird (1888-1946)©

apparatus: Original TV


"The first person to appear was the office boy from the floor below, a youth named William Taynton, and he, rather reluctantly, consented to submit himself to the experiment. I placed him before the transmitter and went into the next room to see what the screen would show. The screen was entirely blank, and no effort of tuning would produce any result. Puzzled, and very disappointed, I went back to the transmitter, and there the cause of the failure became at once evident. The boy, scared by the intense white light had backed away from the transmitter. In the excitement of the moment I gave him half a crown (then worth 60 cents), and this time he kept his head in the right position. Going again into the next room, I saw his head on the screen quite clearly. It is curious to consider that the first person in the world to be seen by television should have required a bribe to accept that distinction." First TV appearance: Speech to the Royal Academy by Mr. Baird

So now, since Andy warhol, told the public that they would get 15 minutes of fame, no bribes are needed! The speech was given in 1931 and concuded

 Throughout the world the highest scientific thought is being devoted to television. Vast strides have been made, and will be made, in this new art. I myself look forward to seeing, in the not far distant future, television theatres supersede the talkies, and the home "Televisor" become as common as the home radio is to-day.

Two new trojan horses threaten Mac software pirates

By Zach Spear
Published: 09:25 AM EST

Tens of thousands of users who\'ve downloaded pirated versions of iWork \'09 or Photoshop CS4 may have opened their Macs to remote attacks from malicious users.

iWork \'09

Mac security software maker Intego discovered last week what it calls \"OSX.Trojan.iServices.A\" in pirated copies of Apple\'s iWork \'09 making the rounds on BitTorrent file sharing networks. An additional package not found in retail copies of the iWork installer called \"iWorkServices.pkg\" is installed as a startup item with read/write/execute abilities with the pirated versions.

According to Intego, the rogue software connects to a remote server to notify its creator that the trojan has been installed on different Macs, and he or she can \"connect to them and perform various actions remotely\", including downloading additional components to the machine.

Intego considers the risk of infection to be serious, warning of \"extremely serious consequences\" if a user\'s Mac is compromised by software. The security firm said 20,000 people had already downloaded the installer at the time of its alert. As of now, Intego counts 1,000 more since the initial warning.

In an update on the matter Monday morning, Intego said Macs infected with the trojan are being pushed new code that downloads in the background, which is then being used to facilitate a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack on certain websites.

Photoshop CS4

As part of its update, Intego also says it has discovered a new variant of the same Trojan horse called \"OSX.Trojan.iServices.B\", which can be found in pirated versions of Adobe Photoshop CS4. This installer has already been downloaded by 5,000 people who are now at risk, the firm says.

This installer compromises the system not by installing an additional package, but through a crack application that serializes the program for use without a purchased retail key. This app extracts an executable from its data and installs a backdoor in /var/tmp/. If the user runs the crack app again, a new executable with a different random name is created, making it difficult to safely remove the malware.

Once the administrator password is entered, a backdoor with root privileges is launched, copying the executable to /usr/bin/DivX and a startup item in /System/Library/StartupItems/DivX. It then makes repeated connections to two IP addresses, according to Intego.

A malicious user can then connect to the affected Macs and perform various actions and downloads remotely. Intego predicts this Trojan horse may also be used to execute similar DDoS attacks.

Warning

As a result of these two very serious risks, Intego is warning Mac users not to download any cracking software from sites that distribute it.

\"The risk of infection is serious, due to the number of infected users, and these users may face extremely serious consequences if their Macs are accessible to malicious users,\" reads a notice on the security firm\'s website.

Intego recommends that users never download and install software from untrusted sources or questionable websites. It says its own VirusBarrier X4 and X5 products with virus definitions dated January 22, 2009, or later will protect against these two Trojan horses.
