Modern times have one biggest benefit of our times. It comes with special thinking. To separate one concept from others completely and explore it. To find what it’s not true, what are possibilities and what can be done. To contaminate facts in theory.
There are quite a few years since I have moved out from living with my parents, started to live my own, working, studying. A lot have changed. I have gone through some heavy addiction to smoking and a lot of self-hate. For last few months, everything is coming on the better way, finally getting control over what I would really achieve and what is important.
When still living with my parents, I used do to come back from school by walking everyday for over 1 hour, we used to take long hiking trips on every weekend, we regularly went to our summer house. Then everything have changed.
Moving to another part of a country, attending university. Starting to smoke. It seems as way without the way out. Growing fast wasn?t enough.
Usually we think that science is discovering one universal Truth. But is it true? By listening to many modern teachers of science, more true is that we are looking into what isn?t true. That we are trying to disprove our theory first.
Our observations have huge impact on how we are thinking about research and how it creates its meaning. For past few decades we we?re using research to prove our thesis with core relations. Here are the facts, there is theirs meaning and you should do this. But research doesn?t implies how it will affect us. Research reveals KPI – Key Point Indicators – areas which need to be achieved to achieve greater goal. However they cannot be endpoints.
If you look just at research you can find that if you do this this and this you will have this outcome. Compare this with time when you hot some theory, some internal observation. You looked for some evidence and then try to disprove it. But it fit well together. First example is called co-science. Unrelated facts put together with common denominator. Second it is starching own itch. When you just know it. It doesn?t prove that you are wrong. It prove that you can be completely right or completely wrong.
For example if you drink a lot of water more than 2 litters of water, put a little bit of salt. It is because by drinking a loads of water you take out minerals from your body including sodium which is necessary to support muscles like heart. If you don?t do it and your heart will fail and you will die. Research is?t about making a picture is about filling the picture, validating it.
Our body can be perceive from perspective of science as a self contain unit. Unit which is environment for thoughts emotions and energy. Taking care about our body can have different shapes, starting from nurturing when we are small by our patents, medical care and medical emergencies when our body fail or is damage or to physiological care. Long time ago there was very interesting research about what is called friendly fire.
During Vietnam war over 30% soldiers were killed by what is called friendly fire. For many years scientist were trying to find reason by that huge number. They have try many different approaches to bad communications, not enough equipment or bad logistics and none of these worked. When they tried depreciate soldiers in experiment from sleep, situation was reconstructed. When soldiers were sleeping less than 4 hours per night, almost half of them ?was? killed during stimulated battle.
Another research about decision making of judges in court. This one was more focused on decision handling and how was rest and wellbeing affecting decision about sentence. Results were astonishing – after the break judges were almost sure to give light or sentence and other just few hours of work, decisions were less forgiving.
Different fact involve our brains. Every creature have brain when have ability of movement. We have that complex brain because we can walk, transport ourselves, experience different stimulants. Think about this like need for expansion. When we are small our capabilities are small. We don?t require a lot. But when we are growing up this is changing. We need bigger field for our motion.
Scientist, we like to think,that they sit for long hours in small rooms thinking about just one and this one thing. But it isn?t true. Every professor have their own ?workout?. Next week try to organise to go for a walk. Few hours of walking. It will change your perspective. In buddhist tradition it is called walking meditation. It evolves nothing more than moving you body. Every emotion is less likely to survive over long walk. We build our history, by telling story. We assign elements to create, what we call story. We put them together just to make life easier.
It is easier to live by myth than make your own choices. It is only possibility in beginning. But we can?t do it over and over. When you have trait you can go explore on your own. You can let go.
Everybody who are depressed, confirm that it is very difficult state to be in. You are confused and afraid of what you are becoming. That you are loosing identity. That you are loosing yourself.
Religion practice and whole meditation stuff is to identify that moment, and be aware of it. There is no easy way. Most probably you will fail million times, but it is ok. You just need to know that there is moment after depression, and it fades away like everything. It is not sable state.
Every emotion is based on chemical compounds . Hormones put us in very specific emotional state. Higher blood flow, will help to change them. The same principle can apply to oxygen. If you take a walk, your oxygen intake will be higher and your brain will function better, thriving on new supply of organic energy. Our body is self organising system, you can learn how to ?reset? it, how to fully take care about it.
Being fit Is more motivated by avoiding what is inevitable in case of not taking care about your body. Years ago I remember picture from book ?The Naked Pilot?. It was book about how we are making decision, how we are doing it better. One of pictures is inside my mind till today. It was picture of bird skeleton and human skeleton. They were almost the same.
We cannot change way how we experience emotions, everybody feel the same way happiness or sadness. But our battle is change environment for our advantage.
Removing fatigue and keeping your body fit will help you remove unhealthy habits or unnecessary actions. One of the stories from Naked pilot was that during emergencies, sometimes pilots were so preoccupied with work that they were forgetting to ?fly? airplane (communicating with air traffic control or maintaining altitude). They were loosing big perspective.
When your hearth will be gone, you will be gone. If even Barack Obama can find hour everyday to go to the gym, so do you. It is not what it can give you but with what it can help avoid
