Great mathematicians with confidence. Wise men, with no confidence…

Being good at math relates to better financial and medical outcomes – unless you don’t have confidence in your own abilities with numbers, a research suggests. In two studies, researchers found that the key to success in personal finances and dealing with a complex disease was a match between a person’s math abilities and how comfortable and assured he or she felt using those skills.

You know things.

Only if you believe you know them.

Confident that you will bend the cosmos to your will.

But only at the end will you realize.

That you are that cosmos!

And the one bent is no one else…

But yourself…

And at that very moment.

You will know nothing.

And at that very moment.

You will know everything!

Creative… Dull… Wise…

A new study finds that creative experts may be better at imagining the future. (1)

Look at the empty sky.

There is nothing to predict. Except of the things we create.

Look at the calm sea.

There is nothing to remember. Except of the things you destroy.

Look inside your self.

Only dull people can ever reach the truth.

Bored with the wisdom of the cosmos.

Being able to see beyond it…

Reverse evolution

The study of evolution is revealing new complexities, showing how the traits most beneficial to the fitness of individual plants and animals are not always the ones we see in nature. Instead, new research by behavioral scientists shows that in certain cases evolution works in the opposite direction, reversing individual improvements to benefit related members of the same group.

The research lead author David Fisher shows that the increased evolution of selfless traits – such as sharing food and keeping watch for one another – is mathematically equivalent to the decreased evolution of individually beneficial traits.

“On one side, traits evolve that benefit your kin, but don’t benefit you, because you’re helping your siblings or cousins. On the other side, traits that benefit you but cost your neighbors don’t evolve, because you’re causing damage to related individuals”, Fisher explains.

The work is part of the ongoing effort to understand the paradox of altruistic behavior in the wild, explains Fisher, a research fellow in McMaster’s Department of Psychology,Neuroscience and Behaviour. (1)

We seek evolution in all the wrong ways.

For true evolution is not about preserving life.

True evolution is about reaching death.

For only through death can we touch the essence of life.

And discover the meaning of existence.

Look at all those people living.

They know nothing about death.

And if not…

How can they know anything about life?

Wise men across the centuries sought not to preserve life.

But to remind us of death.

A death we have already experienced.

But that we choose to forget every day.

At the end, life and death do not matter.

Helping your self is helping others.

Helping others means helping yourself.

Look at your image in the mirror.

Can you clap with one hand?

Laugh.

Dance.

And the cosmos will die…

Can you feel the flowers grow?

Control. Life. Death.

A recent study found out that older adults feel younger when they feel that they have more control over their daily lives, regardless of stress or health concerns. However, stress and health – not a sense of control – play a significant role in how old younger adults feel. (1)

Old people try to control life.

Because they feel it will end.

Young people not caring about controlling anything.

Because they believe they will live forever.

Funny.

For both they had what they seek.

But they lost it the moment they started seeking it.

Old people had control when they were still healthy and thought of everything except having control. Young men had health when they had still control and thought of everything except being healthy.

Think again for what you search for.

You will never find it ahead.

For it is already behind you.

Stop walking.

And think for a moment.

Why did you even start?

Stop listening to the music…

How listening to music ‘significantly impairs’ creativity: The popular view that music enhances creativity has been challenged by researchers who say it has the oppositeeffect. Psychologists investigated the impact of background music on performance by presenting people with verbal insight problems that are believed to tap creativity. They found that background music ‘significantly impaired’ people’s ability to complete tasks testing verbal creativity – but there was no effect for background library noise. (1)

If you want to create music, you must stop listening to music…

If you want to write a great novel, never spend much time reading great novels…

Listen to the whispers in the wind.

If you want to understand them, just stop whispering yourself…

There is wisdom in the silence of the ocean…

But you must drown in it in order to hear it…

And only then will you be able to swim to the shore.

Stop listening to the music.

And your feet will start dancing…
