oh god, that was good, was it good for you too?















well, i have to go now, really, this time i mean it, i'm afraid.





but i will leave you with this one nugget of truth, bacon wrapped in a whole heaping helping of bullshit.




Art is everywhere, you will FIND it all around you....you will find it inside of you....you'll find it in the strangest of places, even in the middle of fucking nowhere, while on a camping trip.

there is the cup....I have filled it with kool-aid for you. It is your choice, whether or not to drink it.


you want a wild wild life? Voila....Magic....guess what, you have one.


i love you, and you will see me in the dust.

i believe that after an extended immersion via La-Z-Boy comfort technology sitting apparatus the mind will separate and re-align it's filters to not only watch, but comprehend all 36 stations at once...an OmniView, a Weltscmerz Machine, a digital Panopticon.

you can take it all in at once.....of course, Dr. Lilly and his associates went stark raving mad in the isolation / deprivation tank so one can only surmise what this might do to a "normal", "healthy" brain.

* Increasing trust and reducing fear. In a risky investment game, experimental subjects given nasally administered oxytocin displayed "the highest level of trust" twice as often as the control group. Subjects who were told that they were interacting with a computer showed no such reaction, leading to the conclusion that oxytocin was not merely affecting risk-aversion.[28] Nasally administered oxytocin has also been reported to reduce fear, possibly by inhibiting the amygdala (which is thought to be responsible for fear responses).[29] Some researchers have argued that oxytocin has a general enhancing effect on all social emotions since intranasal administration of oxytocin also increases envy and schadenfreude.[30]

* Reducing trust of strangers, and increasing cultural and racial bias.[31]

* Affecting generosity by increasing empathy during perspective taking. In a neuroeconomics experiment, intranasal oxytocin increased generosity in the Ultimatum Game by 80% but has no effect in the Dictator Game that measures altruism. Perspective-taking is not required in the Dictator Game, but the researchers in this experiment explicitly induced perspective-taking in the Ultimatum Game by not identifying to participants which role they would be in.[32] Serious methodological questions have arisen, however, with regards to the role of oxytocin in trust and generosity.[33]

* Certain learning and memory functions are impaired by centrally administered oxytocin.[34] Also, systemic oxytocin administration can impair memory retrieval in certain aversive memory tasks.[35] Interestingly, oxytocin does seem to facilitate learning and memory specifically for social information. Healthy males administered intranasal oxytocin show improved memory for human faces, particularly happy faces.[36][37] They also show improved recognition for positive social cues over threatening social cues [38][39] and improved recognition of fear.[40]

* Empathy in healthy males has been shown to be increased after intranasal oxytocin[41][42] This is most likely due to the effect of oxytocin in enhancing eye gaze.[43] There is some discussion about which aspect of empathy oxytocin might alter, for example cognitive vs emotional empathy.[44]

I have been assigned this task by our overlords.

http://io9.com/5867113/scientists-say-t ... is-it-safe

Scientists say they’re getting closer to Matrix-style instant learning
What price effortless learning? In a paper published in the latest issue of Science, neuroscientists say they've developed a novel method of learning, that can cause long-lasting improvement in tasks that demand a high level of visual performance.

And while the so-called neurofeedback method could one day be used to teach you kung fu, or to aid spinal-injury patients on the road to rehabilitation, evidence also suggests the technology could be used to target people without their knowledge, opening doors to numerous important ethical questions.
