Happiness. Meaning of life. Genes.

For the first time, locations on the human genome have been identified that can explain differences in meaning in life between individuals. This is the result of research conducted in over 220,000 individuals. The researchers identified two genetic variants for meaning in life and six genetic variants for happiness. (1)

We want to be unhappy.

So we choose to see our happiness in nothingness.

Once upon a time we were truly happy.

Only because we were blind.

Seek the meaning of life in the void of being.

You will find it full of everything…

Zombie cells… Castles in the sand…

Zombie cells are the ones that can’t die but are equally unable to perform the functions of a normal cell. These zombie, or senescent, cells are implicated in a number of age-related diseases. Researchers have now expanded that list. (1)

Zombie cells.

Not like the other cells.

Because the other cells sustain life.

But we don’t know what life is.

But we know there are zombie cells.

Because they don’t sustain life.

But we don’t know what life is.

Everything we know is castles on the sand.

We must be kids again in order to remember.

That the funniest thing about castles was them being swept away by the water…

Materialism’s dictatorship. Dreams in a cold universe…

Genes are key to academic success, study suggests. Parents always worry about whether their children will do well in school, but their kids probably were born with much of what they will need to succeed, new research suggests. (1) In another study, “bravery” cells were found in the hippocampus. (2) Another study found the mechanisms with which the brain forgets. Researchers have analysed what happens in the brain when humans want to voluntarily forget something. They identified two areas of the brain — the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus — whose activity patterns are characteristic for the process of forgetting. They measured the brain activity in epilepsy patients who had electrodes implanted in the brain for the purpose of surgical planning. (3)

Every day we are bombarded with news about how science explains things. And under a diabolic coincidence, all these explanations produced have one philosophical dogma as their basis: Materialism. We are matter. Things are matter. The universe is matter. A living matter nonetheless. A matter with consciousness. A matter which can die. And be reborn. A matter which can cry. A matter which can laugh.

In the cold vast universe.

Full of nothing.

Humans dream.

They dream of matter. So they see matter.

One day they will wake up. And everything will disappear.

One day they will die. And they will be born…

Predictions. Crowds. Humans. Universe.

Electrons whizzing around each other and humans crammed together at a political rally don’t seem to have much in common, but researchers are connecting the dots. They’ve developed a highly accurate mathematical approach to predict the behavior of crowds of living creatures, using methods originally developed to study large collections of quantum mechanically interacting electrons.

Humans moving as atoms. Atoms moving as humans.

In a world full of light, we try to find darkness.

In a cosmos full of soul, we try to find matter.

At the end, we look so hard that we miss the point.

Are we moving like atoms?

Or are the atoms moving like us?

Hard to see through the cosmos and understand it.

Especially when you are the mirror reflecting it…

Believing in the brain…

Humans constantly experience an ever-changing stream of subjective feelings that is only interrupted during sleep and deep unconsciousness. Finnish researches show how the subjective feelings map into five major categories: positive emotions, negative emotions, cognitive functions, somatic states, and illnesses. All these feelings were imbued with strong bodily sensations. (1)

In both ADHD and emotional instability disorders (e.g. borderline and antisocial personality disorder as well as conduct disorder in children), the brain exhibits similar changes in overlapping areas, meaning that the two types of conditions should be seen as related and attention should be paid to both during diagnosis. This according to researchers at Karolinska Institutet behind a new study published in Molecular Psychiatry. The results can lead to a broader treatment for both conditions. (2)

We believe in the brain. And we have become slaves of it.

We used to be sons of God. And for that we were free.

So free to forget Him. And enslave ourselves to nothingness.

Still, we can go back.

Only if we stop believing in the power of non-believing.

And we start believing again…
