A new building concept

First, sorry for the poor editing, posting this from my phone. I will fix it as soon as I hook up my laptop.

Now, let’s move on;

Today I d

esigned a unique architectural concept for future cities. Each unit has
  • self sustainable energy but interconnected grids
  • separate traffic and pedestrian levels
It is scalable
  • in size from family/single business to mammoth size (think larger than Burj Dubai)
  • in access points from 1 to as many as needed
It has
  • space and optimal placement for air/solar and geothermal energy production and room for new energy technologies to be included
  • a design taking advantage of structural movements at heights to generate energy
It is meant to work for any current purpose common to city planning

, such as

  • Business
  • Commerce
  • Community
  • Entertainment
  • Industry
  • Recreation
  • Residence
  • Gov. or gov. service
  • Transport/logistics
  • etc

Thus, it is well adaptable for separating special transport from regular.

It is based on ideas tested and proven for millions of years by nature

.

In my opinion it is superior to most buildings in the world today, in most, if not all aspects.

I then sketched on a self sustainably powered airborne platform to facilitate construction of the extremely high

versions of the structure.

And finally I outlined an idea for a new solar powered combined heat/electric generator adapted to

take advantage of its peculiar shape.

I will refine these designs ideas and present them in more detail on my website

, stay tuned!

Awareness practice

N

otice everything you DON’T think is important!
Meditate by starting watching the breath.
Gently bring mind back to it when it wanders.
Let the body feel and move with energy of the place.
Meditation is to bring in a state of allowing you to be joyful
Zoom out to see the harmony of conflicts.
Waves of patterns.
If you think you are put here by a God, why not a God that loves you unconditionally?
Notice that space is not limited, boundaries don’t need to be perceived

New art – Moon Wish

I created this piece a few days ago and just added it to the art-section of my web site

I am gradually adding descriptions of each featured piece, my thoughts and inspiration behind them and details on the materials and creation process.

For a while I considered creating a scrapbook with all my creations and even photographed, measured and gave titles to all of them but then scrapped that idea =)

Instead, I am focusing on the most interesting ones, to give a more rewarding experience to people visiting the site.

 

Diary notes

I am almost done collecting my diary notes from the last two years into a commonplace book. The idea is to compile them into something more readable and extract the most useful bits.

Here are some slightly edited notes from December.

No word is Truth.

Time is infinite,

No time is ‘lost’ or ‘made’

No justifications are necessary for Truth:

  • Simply state what is
  • Inquiries will always lead to nothing, thus no-one justifying why you should or shouldn’t think or do something can ever have the absolute Truth
  • No thought is needed to find Truth

Theory:

  • Hunger is cover-up for suppressed anger
  • All ideas can be hijacked by the ego

Relative absolute truths (yes, paradox is inherent to reality)

  • There is a truer ‘me’ or self
  • Nothing is hidden
  • All compromises to feel secure are self-deception (decreasing authenticity and Truth)

Enlightenment insights

While walking along the river today

  • Truth of reality is accessed by reducing as much copied behaviours of the past reoccurring in the present as possible. This is what is referred to as subconscious.
  • Since reality contains all possibilities, including everything that appears as paradox, a paradoxical way to access the truth is by very exact conscious repetition! Ways exemplifying this is daily meditations, mantras, mindfulness and mastery of any specific activity.
  • But once discovered, Truth is accessible at any time at any place, since it is all that actually exists

Vegan / plantbased food e-book translated into Spanish

‘Conscious Ninja Food’ has been translated into Spanish, titled ‘Comida Consciente’

In the process of translation the book has been ruthlessly edited for the better. The recipes are much clearer to follow, the images less obtrusive, the layout more consistent and the fonts more readable. Some quirkiness and originality of the original has been sacrificed in order to hopefully appeal and reach more people.

The English original is planned to get the same treatment

 

 

Reclaim your keyboard! (and your fingers)

giving my trusty mechanical keyboard the “DVORAK treatment”

The most common keyboard layout, often referred to as QWERTY, comes from one of the early typewriter models, over 140 years ago. From being part of a tool only used in certain professions it is now something almost everyone uses daily.

The QWERTY layout grew out of necessity and convenience during the early stages of the typewriter. The top row of the layout has all the letters of typewrite, so that the salesperson could easily demonstrate the new invention. The letters had to be arranged in a way that the mechanical hammers which the paper had the least chance of getting stuck to each other. You can read more about QWERTY on Wikipedia.

But today, on electronic devices, the reasons behind QWERTY’s layout does not make any sense. In my opinion it is a perfect example of systemic resistance, where short-term thinking and lack of awareness gets in the way of a positive change.

But even if QWERTY seems unavoidable, there are ways around it. I will describe one of them.

A few years ago I discovered Dvorak. It is a keyboard layout developed in the 1930’s, with the intention of replacing QWERTY. Dvorak takes account letter frequency and hand physiology into account.

In Dvorak the most common letters are placed in the middle row and all vowels are on the left side of the keyboard. This creates a very pleasant sense when typing. I can compare it to the satisfaction of performing a drum roll, allowing the body to move controlled yet relaxed, with regular symmetrical movements.

Dvorak is available on the common operating systems for many languages, but few people know about it. It takes a little work to set up.

First is configuration. If your keyboard is designed for a less common language, like Swedish in my case, a layout might not be available by default. In that case, you need to create it yourself. I did it using Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator
You can also use the design ideas of Dvorak to create a custom layout based on any unique typing patterns.

How to change the keyboard layout:

In Windows 7
In Windows 10
In Mac OS X
In Linux Ubuntu

The second part is the keyboard. With a laptop, it might be difficult to rearrange the letters, but on most external keyboards, the key caps are removable. Making the rearrangement takes perhaps an hour. Another thing you can do while rearranging the keys is take the chance to clean it if it is dirty, thus prolonging its lifespan.

If you switch, be prepared for a significant relearning period. You will be typing like a toddler again!

If you can overcome this however, the rewards are

  • an amazing sense of flow
  • the possibility of pushing the typing speed limits without the strain on the fingers QWERTY is prone to

If you tried this, I would love to hear about your experience!
