A new theory, backed by animal research and mathematical models, suggests that at the same time that a memory is created, an “antimemory” is also spawned – that is, connections between neurons are made that provide the exact opposite pattern of electrical activity to those forming the original memory. Scientists believe that this helps maintain the balance of electrical activity in the brain.


May the sense of being obstructed decrease.
May the experience of wakefulness increase.
May we realize the fundamental wisdom.
May I put Slack before my self.

Tibetans inherited super-athlete gene from Yetis?

"Tibetans inherited the entire gene from Denisovans in the past 40,000 years or so—or from an even earlier ancestor that carried that DNA and passed it on to both Denisovans and modern humans."


“For small erections may be finished by their first architects; grand ones, true ones, ever leave the copestone to posterity. God keep me from ever completing anything. This whole book is but a draught—nay, but the draught of a draught. Oh, Time, Strength, Cash, and Patience!”

― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

What do sad people have in common?
It seems they have all built a shrine to the past
And often go there and do a strange wail and worship.
What is the beginning of happiness?
It is to stop being so religious like that.

- Hafiz

Use your three hundred sixty bones and joints and your eighty four thousand hair follicles throughout your body to start up a single mass of doubt to meet this single word “Not.” Daytime and nighttime lift up and tear.

Examine this as if you swallowed a single hot iron ball and vomiting and vomiting doesn’t get it out.

How do you produce lifting up and tearing? Raising the single word "Not," exhaust the strength of your life spirit until leveled.

- Wumen Huikai 1183-1260

When the water holes go, and the fish flop about
In the mud, they can moisten each other faintly,
But it’s best if they lose themselves in the river.

You know how many Greek ships went down
With their cargoes of wine. If we can’t get
To port, perhaps it’s best to head for the bottom...

Go ahead, throw your good name into the water.
All those who have ruined their lives for love
Are calling to us from a hundred sunken ships.

Robert Bly - My Sentence was a Thousand Years of Joy

Here I am; I am all alone. It's early morning.
I am so happy. How can so much grandeur
Live beneath my skin? Go on asking; it's already too late!

My tongue never becomes bitter because my mouth
Keeps holding the grief pipe between my teeth.
Go on and conquer bitterness; it's already too late.

- Robert Bly

Should one be content and settle on top of the 100,000 foot pole,

One will harm the third eye,

And will even misread the marks on the scale.

Should one throw oneself and be able to renounce one's life,

Like one blind person leading all other blind persons,

One will be in absolute freedom (unattached from the eyes).

Mumon - The Gateless Gate (1228)

“Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners.” - George Carlin

Zero is where the real fun starts.
There's too much counting
Everywhere else!

- Hafiz

How hath this weakness taken thee?

Whence springs this inglorious trouble, shameful to the brave?
Forbid thyself to feebleness! Cast off the coward-fit!

Wake! Arise! Be thyself! Thus is the soul declared.

- The Bhagavad Gita Chpt. 2

Once, while the master was in the latrine, he called out to Wen-yuan.

Wen-yuan answered, "Yes?"

The master said, "I'm in the latrine now and needn't expound the Dharma any further for you."

- Zhaozhou

“Don't hesitate, get laid: that's wisdom.
Sitting around chanting, what crap.”

―15th century Zen master, Ikkyu

Merry Xistlessnessmas to all Subgenii and persons of pinkness alike!

"The most important aspect of slack is not in giving or the receiving: it's in the being. When I need slack from others, or need to give slack to others, I'm caught in an unstable situation. Being slack, rather than giving or taking slack, is the only thing that provides stability. Being slack means seeing the slack all around me.”

R.I.P. Richard Alpert

My loincloth has no seat, my pants no opening --
On my head are three or five pecks of grey ashes.
Originally I intended to practice to help save others;
Who would have suspected I would become an idiot?

- Zhaozhou

Should we not risk this quest? To suffer blame
For love is better than a life of shame.
No one has reached this goal, so why appeal
To those whose blindness claims it's unreal?
I'd rather die deceived by dreams than give
My heart to home and trade and never live.

― Farid Attar, The Conference of the Birds
