2023.03.04 16:15 Heisenberg044 How I inadvertently got rid of my acne breakouts permanently
I have been already a sub user when Sapien Med was just starting his channel and Matrixplay99 channel was still up. All their subs and fields work for me except for the acne one, it would only work temporarily but my breakouts would return eventually even if I kept listening to SM acne and skin fields and MP99 subs so I kinda gave up on curing my acne with that because this problem really runs on our DNA on BOTH my mother and father side. ಥ_ಥ
During the pandemic, I have read posts on this subreddit about making your own subliminal so I made a personalized subliminal with Audacity. I used my knowledge on what affects my acne like gut bacteria, hormone imbalance, skin homeostasis, etc and made it into sub. I remember listening to it on loop while sleeping for about a month then I eventually forgot about it.
I am now acne free since mid 2021 and I haven’t had any outbreaks anymore, just one or two small zits every now and then but not like before where I had multiple cystic acne on my regular breakouts.
BUT I didn’t attribute it to my sub because I already forgot about that and just concluded that my hormones has now calmed down (because I was already on my mid-20s), at least until now.
I was cleaning up my computer files today and just found the sub I used and it suddenly clicked on me if this is what cured my acne. So I checked the date when I made the sub and cross-referenced it with the video records of my face which I recorded for my mewing progress lol.
I made the sub on August 17, 2020 and recorded a video of my face on 20th which is also when I started mewing iirc. My face are full of acne and blemishes down to my neck on the first video but on the second video dated March 20, 2021, there was not a single acne on my face anymore, just a few obvious indented scars. I have acne since my teenage years and it NEVER went away until 2021, just less than 6 months
after I made this sub.
It never occurred to me until now but I believe that this sub is what cured my acne permanently. I thought it was my hormones calming down on my 20s, but my sister who is on their early 30s still have regular breakouts until now. Tl;dr: I have been miraculously free from major acne now since 2021 which I had since my teenage years. I didn’t attribute it to a random sub I made on a whim during that time and just concluded that it was my hormones finally calming down. But I just discovered today that that wasn’t the case.
TLDR tl;dr: Make your own subliminals!
Edit: Here's the file if anyone is interested, but imho you should create your own affirmations and know it by heart to be effective. But that's just my personal view. Just take note that I am no expert in subliminal creation and this is just a simple personal project that I did on whim and I just put any affirmation in forms I am familiar with then I just mixed it with music lol. I have no knowledge with other sub creation styles with unfamiliar terms that Youtubers use. I have included the text file for the affirmations with three different voiceovers plus the Audacity file so you can also customize it.

Anybody else have to double take when looking in the mirror? Sometimes I really almost don't recognize myself. 😅 I've been on a glow-up journey for a while now but these past few weeks, my face has really changed!
And before you can ask which subs, I will say that Sapien Med has helped a lot with symmetry and toning but this one: https://youtu.be/q_G-Co5WoDE
from Frequency Wizard is the cherry ice cream smile for results. I just look like a more ideal perfect version of myself! Love uu all <3

how many sapien med fields can I listen in a day? for example I am thinking of using height booster 3X, breast enlargement 3x, butt enlargement 3x, and keratosis pilaris 3x.
can I listen all of them without taking any break? like just after finishing height booster 3x, I start the breast enlargement one.

I wake up with a rumble in my stomach. I lift my arm to try and reach my RCD, but I barely have the strength to do that. “Kalipso, what time is it?” My vox assistant responds, in a synthetically sweet voice: “Good evening, Thian. It is 16:49.” I groan, rolling around in my sheets. I overslept again. I feel like if somebody stabbed me right now I wouldn’t protest. Maybe I would even thank them. But I have nobody to give me that coup de grace I desperately need. Minutes pass, or hours, I don’t know anymore. I eventually get up and go to the bathroom. I turn on my chamber and my computer, the usual ritual, and it would take little to call it satanic all things considered. Oh yes, the rumble in my stomach. I forgot to eat. Again. I put on some less disgusting clothes and get out of my apartment to go get some “fresh” GulgSok. Usual blend. I drink the green liquid. The chemically enhanced flavor is barely noticeable to me anymore, just tastes like tap water with gasoline and sugar. It does make my eyes open up a little more though. That’s what I pay them for. I go back home and check my inbox. 15 unread messages from work. Ugh, bosses really must be a different species of human, that do not understand the concept of a “holiday” and need homo sapien interns to feed them pre-masticated worms and wipe their ass. I blast some of those funky emowave riffs that are the only thing keeping me alive at this point. My neighbors should thank me for my new sound-proof walls. I find myself doodling some stupid toons on a blank piece of paper to get me through the awful workload. I hate this fucking job so much, but what can I do? They pay me for my medication, my bills, my chamber, etc. I even have a free VIP helipod travel card for like a million places, but I don’t want to leave the comfort of my room, so that’s useless. I hated living with other people, so having a new apartment where I can be all alone is refreshing in a way. I can thank them for that. But at what cost? What am I even doing with my life? My parents say they’re proud of me, but why do I feel so empty inside? I’m doing alone in a week what a team of 50 people couldn’t do in a year, yet I feel stupid and useless. I look at the awards on my shelf. Dust has settled over them. They’re just pieces of metal anyways. I try to shove away the bad thoughts, I feel that black cloud suffocating me again. I drink the rest of the GulgSok, along with my meds. It helps. I begin the process of entering into my workflow, and once I’m in it, nobody can get me out. The monotony of daily life has a certain bittersweet feeling. I hate it, but I hate it a lot less than the hellish pit inside my mind. May the neo-industrial megalodon wash those thoughts away.
I wake up to the rays of sun shining through the polarized glass. I jump out of bed, put on my favorite blouse, pants, kickers, clean my teeth, style my hair, and I’m off to one more trip to the station. In my bag there’s everything I need: my music player, my earphones and my notepad. Instinctively, I grab my RCD, and I stop for a moment. I haven’t used this thing in so long, it’s probably full of unread notifications, a distant relative sharing a holo of their cat dressed as a cowboy, or scam crypto ads. Will it be today that I break my vow and turn it on? No. Not today. I throw it aside, put on my earphones, and step out into the real world. I inhale a bit of the gasses in the air and I feel a convulsion. The pollution is really bad today. Still, I press on. The things this world throws at me don’t phase me anymore. I’ve gotten accustomed to the smell of nitrogen. To the distant, demonic roar of the city. To the sleepless, anxious, or grim faces I see on the street. To the angry yelling of passengers in traffic, and the fights in the bus stop. I have found my way through the monotony of the city, and found my little corners, where some rare quiet beauty still survives. I look at the time and I see I’m early again, so I stop for a few minutes, sitting on some degrading fibrocarbon box, appreciating the old architecture and the plants in a stray garden, yellow from the fumes, but still alive, and for a moment I forget everything. I lose myself in the tiny breeze that gently caresses the leaves, a sweet kiss of courage, inspiring it to not give up, and keep fighting despite it all. Then, a buzzing brings me back to my senses. I look at the bus stop, and I see my railbus departing! Guess I have to wait for the next one. I couldn’t care, though, because I saw an old friend, Martin, sitting on the bench. We talk for a bit, about the new Finglecunk album, then my bus arrives and I have to end it short. The trip to the station is quicker than usual. Perhaps the fumes kept most people at home today. Or maybe it’s some religious holiday I don’t know about. Regardless, I arrive 2 minutes late to work, and I quickly swipe my HoliDeck card and enter the pad. My Helipod is waiting for me, with a fresh paint of glittery violet and tan undertones hiding the fact this model is almost 20 years old. I don’t want a new one though. This one works flawlessly, even if it’s a little chunkier than most. Nowadays it’s all AI-assisted and digital. I don’t wish to give the reins of my life to ones-and-zeroes. Luckily, my boss is very patient with me, and she got me a special deal where I get to keep this one but have to pay for the expenses. I enter the cockpit and begin heating the motors. I feel lucky that I have this job, where I get to drive across the skyline for hours, sometimes passing over a surviving patch of bornean forest to go deliver mail to some old lady on the 193rd floor in another city. People make fun of me for liking Gen Alpha, but I don’t get the joke. They have so many stories of the past they can tell us about. Sure, you can read about the Texan-American War on the holodocs or join a simulation of The Tronsborgle Crash in a chamber, but to talk to somebody who was actually alive when these things happened, has memories of the event, and was affected by it directly, is just… different. I can’t explain it well. Even if I could, I feel people wouldn’t listen to me anyways…

////Q//// Dietary fibers are complex polymeric carbohydrates that cannot be metabolized by enzymes encoded by the human genome and are metabolized by gut microbes through anaerobic fermentation. Epidemiologic studies suggest an increased risk of chronic inflammatory diseases associated with a lower dietary fiber intake. The gut microbiome regulates host metabolism and immune homeostasis.
Different dietary fibers and their metabolic products, such as short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), can profoundly impact hosts and modulate gut microbial composition. Therefore, exploring how dietary fibers regulate host microbial communities can allow for targeted therapeutic interventions. As such, in the present study, the authors illustrate the effects of dietary fiber interventions on the gut microbiome and inflammatory diseases. https://www.news-medical.net/news/20221202/Exploring-the-effects-of-dietary-fiber-on-gut-microbiome-and-inflammatory-diseases.aspx
And looming sea level rise, which quickens the pace of beach erosion on developed coastlines, will only make Florida's future efforts to protect its beaches more complicated and costly.
The scarcity of sand
There's plenty of sand sitting in relatively shallow water on the continental shelf that rings Florida. But not all of it is good enough for the state's beaches. Sand that has the wrong color or grain type can harm plants and animals, like the sea turtles that build their nests along the Florida coast.
There are economic considerations, too: Florida spends billions of dollars a year advertising its pristine, white-sand beaches to tourists. Loading the shoreline up with inferior quality sand could make the state a less attractive vacation destination.
Since 1935, Florida has dredged or dug up about half a trillion tons of high-quality sand to maintain its eroding beaches, according to the National Beach Nourishment Database developed by the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association and the Army Corps. But the state's supply of good sand is running low—and once those deposits are gone, they won't come back any time soon, according to Stephen Leatherman, a professor of coastal science at Florida International University. https://phys.org/news/2022-12-sand-gold-pricey-florida-beaches.html

For Spiegel, who has been researching IBS for many years, the idea that gravity may be the common denominator arose when a family member living in an assisted living started having intestinal issues.
“She has recently been spending a lot of time bedbound, and of course, we’re not really designed to be bedbound. We’re designed to be an upright organism,” says Spiegel. “It turned out that almost coincident with starting to lie down, she was developing all sorts of [gastrointestinal] issues, abdominal distress, bloating and constipation, and some really significant issues that required medications.” https://www.inverse.com/mind-body/strange-idea-to-explain-irritable-bowel-syndrome
Published in Frontiers in Public Health the study showed that high levels of traffic-related air pollution - fine particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) – were associated with an increased risk of having at least two long term health conditions. The strongest associations were observed for co-occurring neurological, respiratory, cardiovascular and common mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety.

In the wild, the young wolves split off from their packs to find opposite-sex partners with which to breed and form new packs. New research in Yellowstone suggests that Toxoplasma gondii – the parasite responsible for toxoplasmosis – might play a part in the dispersal process.
Once bonded, wolf pairs are highly monogamous and usually do not change partners unless one of the pair dies. The male and female dominate the pack and decide who eats first simply because they are the parents of the rest of the group. There are almost no fights between wild male offspring and their fathers for alpha male status. https://www.iflscience.com/the-term-alpha-male-is-all-a-lie-66483

The European Commission has fined the chemical companies Sunpor, Synbra, Synthomer, Synthos, and Trinseo a total of $162 million for participating in a cartel to depress the price of styrene, a raw material they buy, on the European market. Ineos also participated in the cartel but avoided a fine by blowing the whistle on the illegal activity. The commission began its investigation in September 2017. It found that the companies had been operating as a cartel between May 1, 2012, and June 30, 2018. “The six buyers of styrene exchanged sensitive commercial information and coordinated their negotiation strategy,” the commission states in a press release. https://cen.acs.org/business/petrochemicals/EC-fines-5-styrene-buyers/100/i43
Based on the success of this quantum model, the team determined that their holographic wormhole had been traversed.
While this science is fascinating, Spiropulu and authors of a commentary essay also published in Nature admit that it’s not necessarily a ground-breaking finding unto itself. In fact, because this experiment only used nine qubits, Spiropulu said that this experiment also could have been done on a classical computer as well.
Instead, the importance of this work is that it’s a proof-of-principle for how quantum computers can be used to help scientists explore complex ideas like quantum gravity. https://www.vice.com/en/article/bvmaaw/google-researchers-create-traversable-holographic-wormhole-using-quantum-computer-in-new-study

Researchers led by Laura Acosta, then a doctoral student, now a graduate, selected two genetic variations in question because each controls the synthesis of an enzyme that breaks EGCG down. https://www.newswise.com/articles/green-tea-extract-may-harm-liver-in-people-with-certain-genetic-variations
“We’ve moved away from thinking of autism as a condition that needs to be eliminated or fixed to thinking about autism as part of the neurodiversity that exists across humankind,” says Geraldine Dawson, director of the Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development in Durham, N.C. “The question then becomes, How do we best support people who are autistic, and how would you measure improvement if you are conducting clinical trials?” https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/autism-treatment-shifts-away-from-fixing-the-condition/
A recent human study published this week in the scientific journal Antioxidants found that consuming grapes protected against ultraviolet (UV) damage to the skin. Study subjects showed increased resistance to sunburn after consuming 2 ¼ cups of grapes every day for two weeks. Additionally, subjects displaying UV resistance also demonstrated unique microbiomic and metabolomic profiles suggesting a correlation between the gut and skin. Natural components found in grapes known as polyphenols are thought to be responsible for these beneficial effects.

For millions of years, the Steller's sea cow, a four-ton marine mammal and relative of the manatee, shaped kelp forests along the Pacific coast of North America by eating massive quantities of kelp fronds from the upper canopies, thus allowing light to spur productivity in the understory. In a paper published today in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, researchers from the California Academy of Sciences -- as part of the Academy's Thriving Californiainitiative -- reveal what historical kelp forests may have looked like in the presence of the marine megaherbivore, which went extinct in the 1700s just 27 years after its first encounter with Europeans due to overhunting, and suggest how kelp forest conservation efforts can take its absence into account https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2022/11/221128140353.htm
The strongest Arctic cyclone ever observed poleward of 70 degrees north latitude struck in January 2022 northeast of Greenland. A new analysis led by the University of Washington shows that while weather forecasts accurately predicted the storm, ice models seriously underestimated its impact on the region's sea ice.
The study, published in October in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres, suggests that existing models underestimate the impact of big waves on ice floes in the Arctic Ocean.
"The loss of sea ice in six days was the biggest change we could find in the historical observations since 1979, and the area of ice lost was 30% greater than the previous record," said lead author Ed Blanchard-Wrigglesworth, a research assistant professor of atmospheric sciences at the UW. "The ice models did predict some loss, but only about half of what we saw in the real world." https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2022/11/221129143824.htm

About one third of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) develop diabetic retinopathy (DR), a leading cause of blindness in working-age individuals. DR typically develops after many years of DM, and some patients do not develop DR for more than 50 years. New research suggests that an endogenous system that protects human retinal endothelial cells from harmful effects of the hyperglycemia (an excess of blood sugar) may be responsible for the delayed onset of DR. Furthermore, degradation of this protective system over time may set the stage for development of DR. https://www.news-medical.net/news/20221129/Endogenous-system-may-be-responsible-for-delayed-onset-of-diabetic-retinopathy.aspx
Both drugs showed powerful efficacy on the lab bench, killing most bed bugs, although fluralaner performed much more effectively on bed bugs that showed resistance to common insecticides.
“The drugs affect receptors in the insect’s nervous system,” said Coby Schal, Blanton J. Whitmire Distinguished Professor of Entomology at NC State and the corresponding author of a paper describing the work.
Fluralener was highly effective at killing bed bugs that fed on chickens dosed with the drug. Ivermectin, meanwhile, was ineffective against bed bugs that fed on dosed chickens. https://scienceblog.com/535221/common-veterinary-drugs-show-effectiveness-against-bed-bugs/
New research finds that the hot, exposed land in the central U.S. during the Dust Bowl drought influenced temperatures across much of North America and as far away as Europe and East Asia. That's because the extreme heating of the Great Plains triggered motions of air around the Northern Hemisphere in ways that suppressed cloud formation in some regions and, in combination with the influence of tropical oceanic conditions, led to record heat thousands of miles away.
"The hot and dry conditions over the Great Plains during the Dust Bowl spread extreme heat to other areas of the Northern Hemisphere," said Gerald Meehl, a scientist with the National Center of Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and lead author of the new study. "If you look at daily record high temperatures, some of these areas are just now breaking the records that were set in the 1930s." https://phys.org/news/2022-11-1930s-bowl-extreme-northern-hemisphere.html

Earlier studies suggested managers would set clear goals and then monitor progress, otherwise leaving staff to get on with it. Instead, the managers in our study told us they tended to treat remote workers holistically—as people, not just staff. They focused on social connections instead of just objective performance.
We believe these managers have learned to discount conventional advice and develop practices that are more effective with remote staff. As such, their experience contains valuable lessons for today's managers. https://phys.org/news/2022-11-dont-metricspersonal-real-key-remote.html
A common chemotherapy drug could carry a toxic inheritance for children and grandchildren of adolescent cancer survivors, Washington State University-led research indicates.
The study, published online in iScience, found that male rats who received the drug ifosfamide during adolescence had offspring and grand-offspring with increased incidence of disease. While other research has shown that cancer treatments can increase patients’ chance of developing disease later in life, this is one of the first-known studies showing that susceptibility can be passed down to a third generation of unexposed offspring. https://www.newswise.com/articles/chemotherapy-could-increase-disease-susceptibility-in-future-generations
has revealed that global warming and ocean acidification threaten marine organisms that build their skeletons and shells with calcium carbonate (chalk) such as corals, bryozoans, molluscs, sea urchins or crustaceans.
The work, recently published in the journal Ecography, focuses on organisms with calcium carbonate skeletons from around Antarctica in the Southern Ocean. Calcium carbonate is more soluble in more acidic waters which contain more carbon dioxide (CO2), such as the colder waters of the polar regions, making it harder for these creatures to build their skeletons. https://www.newswise.com/articles/calcifying-organisms-under-threat-from-a-combination-of-ocean-warming-and-acidification

Conclusions: Health authorities should upload pertinent information through multiple channels and should exploit the existing YouTube recommendation algorithm to disrupt the misinformation network. Considering the viewing habits of patients and caregivers, the direct use of YouTube hospital channels is more effective than the indirect use of YouTube news media channels or government channels that report public announcements and statements. Reinforcing through multiple channels is the key. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36374534/

Nuffield Trust researcher Martha McCarey, the lead author of the analysis, told The Guardian the drop-off in EU-trained medics seeking to work in the UK could be a result of extra bureaucracy and higher costs following Brexit.
She said: “Since the referendum campaign, greater costs, more paperwork and uncertainty over visas because of Brexit have been among the biggest barriers to recruiting and keeping EU and EFTA doctors.”
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said it rejected the Nuffield Trust’s findings.
A spokesperson for the DHSC told The Guardian: “This analysis is inaccurate and we don’t recognise or agree with its key conclusions. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/health/nhs-nuffield-trust-department-of-health-and-social-care-european-brexit-b1043021.html

Studies continue to illuminate the wide-ranging benefits of physical activity when it comes to brain health, and new research has shown how that might include treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Scientists have explored how short bursts of aerobic exercise can augment an existing behavioral therapy used to treat the condition, and demonstrated that it may help alleviate symptoms by boosting plasticity in the brain.
Though physical activity is generally understood to be good for us, we've recently seen scientists really drill into the way it improves brain health and cognitive function. This includes studies showing that exercise can protect against age-relative cognitive decline, battle depression and positively influence brain plasticity and learning. https://newatlas.com/medical/10-minute-bursts-exercise-therapy-ptsd/

_However, as The New York Times noted, foreign investment in petroleum is something that Maduro desperately needs in order to improve his country's economy, which has been sinking despite Venezuela having the world's largest oil reserves. As a result, the U.S. agreed to grant Chevron's license after Maduro pledged to implement a $3 billion humanitarian program and also hold talks regarding fair elections in Venezuela, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Chevron may now resume activity in its oil fields alongside a joint venture with the Venezuelan national oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela SA.
"We have long made clear we believe the best solution in Venezuela is a negotiated one between Venezuelans," an anonymous Biden administration official told The Washington Post. "To encourage this, we have also said we were willing to provide targeted sanctions relief." However, the official added that additional action would require more "concrete steps," including the release of political prisoners and allowing United Nations humanitarian missions into Venezuela. https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/u-gives-green-light-chevron-163804126.html?src=rss
Currently, the best evidence for reducing the chances of re-spraining your ankle sprain comes down to two main things:
1) Protecting the joint with an ankle brace when active
This could mean using a professionally fitted external support brace (not an elastic sleeve). This is a relatively low-cost and effective means of risk reduction.
2) Using balancing exercises and 'proprioceptive training'
Examples of proprioceptive training include:
balancing on each leg, one at a time, while throwing and catching a ball against a wall balancing on an ankle disc or wobble board for three to five minutes daily.
These exercises can help strengthen the muscles and ligaments in your ankle.
As one literature review put it: "Proprioceptive training is a cost- and time-effective intervention that can benefit patients who have sustained a previous ankle sprain during physical activity and can subsequently reduce the risk of further complications." https://www.sciencealert.com/the-science-behind-why-you-sprain-your-ankle-so-often-and-what-you-can-do-about-it

Arnall’s formula looks the part: [W+(D-d)]xTQ/MxNA. Upon closer inspection, however, the variables involved are subjective and plainly unscientific. W, for instance, stands for weather. D is debt and d is monthly salary, while T means time since Christmas and Q is the time since you gave up on your New Year’s resolution.
None of the factors he included can be measured, or compared by the same units. The formula can’t be adequately assessed or verified. For example, there is no way to measure the average number of days since people slipped up on their New Year’s resolution. And January’s weather varies among different states, countries and continents. In short, there is no scientific merit to it.
“I had no idea it would gain the popularity that it has,” Arnall told CNN. “I guess a lot of people recognize it in themselves.”
Arnall has also claimed to campaign against his own idea of Blue Monday as part of the “activist group” Stop Blue Monday.

What happens when I drink orange juice and then milk?
Don’t fret, according to Rezaie, you will digest them both without a problem.
Stomach acid gives orange juice a run for its money with a pH level between 1.5 and 3. That might not sound like a big difference, but the pH scale is logarithmic, which means changes are exponential; an acid at 3 is ten times more acidic than an acid at 4, and an acid at 2 is 100 times more acidic than one at 4. So, stomach acid at 1.5 is 250 times more acidic than orange juice.

But why? Some naysayers insist that, for many years, the dietary guidelines have been misleading us, urging diets low in saturated fat and high in carbohydrates, despite accumulating evidence that this combination may not be universally healthful for everyone.
Indeed, the dietary guidelines have proven to be at least partially incorrect in the past. For example, the original instruction to limit dietary cholesterol intake to less than 300 milligrams per day, equivalent to the amount in one and a half eggs, has been debunked. There’s no conclusive link between dietary cholesterol and cholesterol levels in the body.
But there’s a simpler reason that might explain why so many Americans are unhealthy: The dietary guidelines are broadly correct and beneficial, but people just aren’t following them. Prior research suggests that this is the case. https://www.realclearscience.com/blog/2023/01/14/do_the_usdas_dietary_guidelines_actually_make_you_healthy_875678.html

Scientists discover secreted protein helps both repair and grow muscles
Myokine improves both myoblast proliferation and myotube contractile strength https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/976245
A myokine is one of several hundred cytokines or other small proteins and proteoglycan peptides that are produced and released by skeletal muscle cells in response to muscular contractions. They have autocrine, paracrine and/or endocrine effects; their systemic effects occur at picomolar concentrations. Receptors for myokines are found on muscle, fat, liver, pancreas, bone, heart, immune, and brain cells. The location of these receptors reflects the fact that myokines have multiple functions. Foremost, they are involved in exercise-associated metabolic changes, as well as in the metabolic changes following training adaptation. They also participate in tissue regeneration and repair, maintenance of healthy bodily functioning, immunomodulation; and cell signaling, expression and differentiation.Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myokine

Inadequate nutrient availability has been demonstrated to be one of the main factors related to endocrine and metabolic dysfunction. We investigated the role of inadequate nutrient intakes in the myokine levels of runners. Sixty-one amateur runners participated in this study. The myokine levels were determined using the Human Magnetic Bead Panel from plasma samples collected before and after the marathon. Dietary intake was determined using a prospective method of three food records. The runners with lower carbohydrate and calcium intakes had higher percentages of fat mass (p < 0.01). The runners with a sucrose intake comprising above 10% of their energy intake and an adequate sodium intake had higher levels of BDNF (p = 0.027 and p = 0.031). After the race and in the recovery period, the runners with adequate carbohydrate intakes (g/kg) (>5 g/kg/day) had higher levels of myostatin and musclin (p < 0.05). The runners with less than 45% of carbohydrate of EI had lower levels of IL-15 (p = 0.015) and BNDF (p= 0.013). The runners with higher cholesterol intakes had lower levels of irisin (p = 0.011) and apelin (p = 0.020), and those with a low fiber intake had lower levels of irisin (p = 0.005) and BDNF (p = 0.049). The inadequate intake influenced myokine levels, which promoted cardiometabolic tissue repair and adaptations to exercise. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36615810/

the programs seemed to encourage environmentally friendly actions among everybody, but when we dug down, most of the program's effect was explained by the response from linguistically diverse children," said study co-author Kathryn Stevenson, associate professor of parks, recreation and tourism management at NC State. "This is encouraging, as linguistically diverse children are making up more and more of the U.S. population, and we want our programs to resonate with everyone. It also highlights how young people with different backgrounds can make important contributions. It also makes us wonder: Are students bringing these lessons home?"
The study is part of a research series looking at how environmental education can impact children, their families and their communities.

AI tools have become more accessible than ever before. But those algorithms will glibly fib about anything that suits their purpose. To make align them with our values, Graziano thinks, they're going to need consciousness.
"Consciousness is part of the tool kit that evolution gave us to make us an empathetic, prosocial species," Graziano writes. "Without it, we would necessarily be sociopaths, because we’d lack the tools for prosocial behavior."
Sure, ChatGPT isn't about to leap out of the screen and murder somebody. But giving artificial intelligence more and more agency could have very real consequences we should be wary of in the not-so-distant future.
To make them more docile, in Graziano's thinking, we should allow them to realize that the world is filled with other minds other than their own.
There's one problem, though: we don't have an effective way to know if an AI is conscious or not. In fact, philosophically, it's hard to even really nail down whether other people are conscious. https://futurism.com/the-byte/neuroscientist-current-generation-ais-sociopaths

In a study of 24,011 US adults over 40, only having one meal a day was linked to a higher mortality risk in general. Skipping breakfast was associated with a greater risk of dying from a cardiovascular disease (CVD), while skipping lunch or dinner was associated with a greater risk of all-cause mortality, including a rise in CVD risk.
There was even a problem for those who ate all three meals but had them too close together. Eating two adjacent meals within 4.5 hours of each other was also shown to be linked to increased all-cause death risk.

TRF increases a wide range of gene expression
Time-restricted feeding or eating, also known as TRF or TRE in humans, is a unique strategy in which nutrients are ingested within a regular window of 8–10 hours each day, leading to pleiotropic health advantages that affect several tissues. Importantly, benefits are seen regardless of constant calorie intake or diet type, and numerous human investigations have also seen qualitatively similar benefits. Improvements in blood pressure, liver triglycerides, plasma lipids, heart function, gut health, endurance, motor coordination, exercise capacity, sleep, and gut health are among the advantages. There have also been decreases in tumor development, cancer risk, and the severity of neurological illnesses. https://www.gilmorehealth.com/daily-time-restricted-feeding-alters-gene-expression-throughout-the-body/

So the question is, how do you lose water weight? The MIDSS (Measurement Instrument Database for the Social Sciences) has some advice.

Participants described that they felt more vulnerable when people perceived them as incapable because of their deafblindness and patronised them. Deafblind adults often experienced such vulnerability in interactions with social care workers, who insisted on helping in areas of the respondents’ lives where they did not need it. They expressed a desire to be recognised as “capable and competent”.
Through qualitative interviews with nine deafblind adults, the study published in the Journal of Social Work, found that they experience vulnerability as multi-layered, feeling vulnerable about and to certain things, in certain situations and at certain times.
Based on these time-limited, situation and setting-specific experiences of vulnerability, the authors argue that policymakers and social care workers must reject the assumption that deafblind adults are “permanently and immutably vulnerable”. https://www.kcl.ac.uk/news/new-study-calls-for-nuanced-understanding-of-vulnerability-among-deafblind-adults

It’s important to get the right kind of filters. The filters need to have a MERV-13 rating, which refers to the filter’s ability to trap particles of a specific size.
When the fan is turned on, air is pulled through the four sides of the box. The filters trap contaminated particles, allowing clean air to flow into the middle of the box and be pushed back out into the environment through the fan. The fans just needs to be plugged into a normal electrical outlet. Not only can the boxes reduce the spread of pathogens such as the coronavirus, they also can reduce other particles, such as those generated by wildfires, as well as dust and pollen. https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2023/01/13/air-filter-diy-covid/

"Through our research on modern humans, we noticed that we could predict the age at which people had children from the types of DNA mutations they left to their children," says study co-author Matthew Hahn, a genomicist at Indiana University Bloomington.
"We then applied this model to our human ancestors to determine what age our ancestors procreated."
They found that, over the past 250,000 years, the average age for humans to have children is 26.9 years. (For context, 300,000 years ago is also roughly when our species first appeared.)

Japan has revised the timing of a planned release to the sea of treated but still radioactive wastewater at the Fukushima nuclear power plant to “around spring or summer,” indicating a delay from the initial target of this spring, after factoring in the progress of a release tunnel and the need to gain public support.
The government and the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, announced in April 2021 a plan to begin releasing the treated wastewater into the sea starting in spring 2023. They say more than 1 million tons of water stored in about 1,000 tanks at the plant are hampering its decommissioning and risk leaking in the event of a major earthquake or tsunami.
Under the current plan, TEPCO will transport the treated water through a pipeline from the tanks to a coastal facility, where it will be diluted with seawater and sent through an undersea tunnel, currently under construction, to an offshore outlet. The company has acknowledged the possibility of rough winter weather and sea conditions delaying the tunnel progress. https://apnews.com/article/politics-japan-climate-and-environment-business-572b767c9a7aadd5d8c3bcbbfaa11270
The study, published in October, instead suggests REM sleep is a means of heating up the brain so an animal can remain somewhat alert to its surroundings.
According to the study, Siegel reviewed his and other researchers’ existing data on REM sleep across a wide range of species to find the purpose of REM sleep, leading him to hypothesize that REM sleep acts as a biological thermostat.
When brain temperature falls beneath a certain level, animals may go into hibernation or torpor, a state of light hibernation, he said, adding that in these states, animals are unconscious of outside stimuli such as predators. Without maintaining a certain baseline brain temperature, a mammal may not be able to rouse itself quickly enough to avoid danger, Siegel said. https://dailybruin.com/2023/01/12/ucla-study-posits-connection-between-rem-sleep-body-temperature
only the constant light approach increased NSPC proliferation and differentiation to oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), OPCs maturation to OLs and recruitment to the site of demyelination, the number of patrolling monocytes, and phagocytosis. In contrast, constant darkness and exogenous melatonin exacerbated these events and amplified monocyte infiltration. Therefore, melatonin should not be considered a universal remedy, as is currently claimed. Our data emphasize the importance of monitoring melatonin/cortisol oscillations in each MS patient by considering diet and lifestyle to avoid melatonin overdose. https://www.nature.com/articles/s12276-023-00925-1
In the future, the energy needed to run the powerful computers on board a global fleet of autonomous vehicles could generate as many greenhouse gas emissions as all the data centers in the world today.

This new research focused on a specific protein dubbed BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), which is a crucial molecule involved in the growth, function and survival of brain cells. It has also been found to improve memory and slow the progression of neurodegenerative disease.
“BDNF has shown great promise in animal models, but pharmaceutical interventions have thus far failed to safely harness the protective power of BDNF in humans," said lead author on the new research, Travis Gibbons. "We saw the need to explore non-pharmacological approaches that can preserve the brain’s capacity which humans can use to naturally increase BDNF to help with healthy aging.”
The goal of the study was to understand how fasting and exercise influences BDNF production. https://newatlas.com/health-wellbeing/six-minutes-intense-exercise-brain-health-bdnf/

Projections created internally by ExxonMobil starting in the late 1970s on the impact of fossil fuels on climate change were very accurate, even surpassing those of some academic and governmental scientists, according to an analysis published Thursday in Science by a team of Harvard-led researchers.

A growing pile of evidence indicates that the tens of trillions of microbes that normally live in our intestines -; the so-called gut microbiome -; have far-reaching effects on how our bodies function. Members of this microbial community produce vitamins, help us digest food, prevent the overgrowth of harmful bacteria and regulate the immune system, among other benefits. Now, a new study suggests that the gut microbiome also plays a key role in the health of our brains, according to researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. https://www.news-medical.net/news/20230112/Reshaping-the-gut-microbiome-could-be-a-possible-way-to-prevent-or-treat-neurodegeneration.aspx
A new digital wage atlas launched by Cornell University researchers shows that more than half of New Yorkers earn below a living wage.
The Cornell ILR Wage Atlas is designed to help New York state policymakers, economic development officials, nonprofits, academics and other stakeholders more easily analyze and visualize who earns living wages and where, and which occupations are best or worst for earning a living wage.
The atlas estimates living wages by county based on household size and local costs including food, housing, transportation, childcare, medical care and taxes.
In addition to statewide analyses, the atlas's suite of interactive tools allows users to zoom in on specific neighborhoods, cities or regions and to search wages by race, ethnicity and gender, helping to highlight disparities.
"We hope the wage atlas helps our partners in government and elsewhere better understand patterns of inequality," said Russell Weaver, director of research at the ILR Buffalo Co-Lab. "They can also see which occupations would benefit most from increases to the minimum wage." https://phys.org/news/2023-01-wage-atlas-yorkers.html
A person’s HDL cholesterol level is just one part of the story, though. Commonly reported on blood tests, the level reflects the amount of cholesterol that HDL particles have on board. HDL carries cholesterol away from the arteries to the liver to be excreted. This helps keep cholesterol from building up in artery walls, which can eventually impede blood flow.
Recently, research on HDL has started looking beyond its cholesterol payload. “The big understanding over the last decade or so is that while you can measure the cholesterol, it doesn’t really reflect the actual functions that HDL is doing in the body,” says Anand Rohatgi, a cardiologist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
How well HDL removes cholesterol appears to matter. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/hdl-good-cholesterol-heart-health
An artificial-intelligence (AI) chatbot can write such convincing fake research-paper abstracts that scientists are often unable to spot them, according to a preprint posted on the bioRxiv server in late December1. Researchers are divided over the implications for science.
“I am very worried,” says Sandra Wachter, who studies technology and regulation at the University of Oxford, UK, and was not involved in the research. “If we’re now in a situation where the experts are not able to determine what’s true or not, we lose the middleman that we desperately need to guide us through complicated topics,” she adds. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-023-00056-7

A critically endangered Western chimpanzee has been born at Chester Zoo.
The male chimp is in good health and is spending the first few weeks of its life bonding with its mother, ZeeZee, and the other members of the zoo's 22-strong troop.
He will be named after a rock or pop star like three other baby chimpanzees previously born at the zoo - Dylan (Bob), Alice (Cooper) and Annie (Lennox).
“We’re incredibly proud to see a precious new baby in the chimpanzee troop. Mum ZeeZee and her new arrival instantly bonded and she’s been doing a great job of cradling him closely and caring for him,” said Andrew Lenihan, team manager of the primates section at Chester Zoo. https://www.sciencefocus.com/news/critically-endangered-chimpanzee-born-chester-zoo-hope/
The crew members, who are healthy and not in any danger, will stay on the station for several additional months because the Russian Soyuz capsule that carried them into space was damaged by a micrometeoroid roughly 1 millimeter in diameter.

"These first observational results from an Earth-size, rocky planet open the door to many future possibilities for studying rocky planet atmospheres with Webb," agreed Mark Clampin, Astrophysics Division director at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "Webb is bringing us closer and closer to a new understanding of Earth-like worlds outside our solar system, and the mission is only just getting started."
Among all operating telescopes, only Webb is capable of characterizing the atmospheres of Earth-sized exoplanets. The team attempted to assess what is in the planet's atmosphere by analyzing its transmission spectrum. Although the data shows that this is an Earth-sized terrestrial planet, they do not yet know if it has an atmosphere. "The observatory's data are beautiful," said Erin May, also of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. "The telescope is so sensitive that it can easily detect a range of molecules, but we can't yet make any definitive conclusions about the planet's atmosphere." https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2023/01/230111193458.htm

Children who take antipsychotic medication are at risk of weight gain, sedation, diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and unexpected death. In very young children, antipsychotics might cause developmental and other long-term adverse effects. “The low rate of use of safer first-line psychosocial treatments, such as parent-child interaction therapy or cognitive-behavioral therapy, potentially puts children at unnecessary risks associated with antipsychotic treatment,” Bushnell said.
The study was co-authored by Stephen Crystal at the Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research and Rutgers School of Social Work. https://www.rutgers.edu/news/prescriptions-antipsychotic-medications-young-children-declining

“Human pressures are causing species to lose range. As they lose range, their niches shrink, and they become restricted to a less diverse range of habitats. Our study suggests range loss is concentrated in niche cores, pushing many species to the ecological extremes of their historic range.” commented Dr Britnell.
This shift, called ecological marginalisation, leads to a higher species extinction risk. According to the researchers, the quality of the habitat matters to a species’ extinction risk and ecological marginalisation could help to explain why some protected areas are more effective than others. https://scienceblog.com/535932/hundreds-of-mammal-species-are-being-pushed-toward-extinction/
Folate from diet or folic acid (FA) from supplements can donate a carbon group to homocysteine (Hcy), which can be either methylated into methionine or degraded into cysteine, with vitamins B6 and B12 serving as essential coenzymes.2 Emerging evidence suggests that low status of these B vitamins may lead to adiposity, dyslipidemia, vascular endothelial dysfunction, glucose intolerance, and insulin resistance,3-7 which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome (MetS). https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2800209
However, breeding grasses is difficult by nature. Like many other flowering plants, grasses have evolved a mechanism that prevents inbreeding after self-pollination. Experts call this mechanism "self-incompatibility." It ensures that no pollen from the plant itself or from closely related individuals can grow towards the ovary and fertilize the egg cell. This prevents inbreeding, with all its consequences.
For plant breeding, self-incompatibility can be a disadvantage. It not only complicates the development of homozygous lines but can also affect the pollination of two closely related individuals. This makes it more difficult to achieve breeding progress for desired plant characteristics by crossbreeding. To be able to exploit different plant breeding strategies, precise knowledge of self-incompatibility is essential. https://phys.org/news/2023-01-grasses-inbreeding.html
Education, for example, played an important role in pandemic response.
Even after adjusting for strictness of governmental COVID policies, the team found that higher education was significantly associated with lower amounts of political unrest across the United States. Diversity in responses even within countries showed the potential for regional differences to impact pandemic response.
The most pandemic-impacted sectors also differed across countries. Human health, public administration and defense were strongly impacted in the U.S. and Sweden, while manufacturing was strongly impacted in Brazil and India. The construction sector was moderately or strongly impacted across all countries.
"Understanding the differences in countries' abilities to respond after a pandemic can help society be better prepared for future pandemics," Del Valle said. https://medicalxpress.com/news/2023-01-countries-covid-pandemic.html

Sociologists from the Universities of Minnesota and Arizona suggest that these types of results, which they called “disruptive” findings, have not kept up with the growth of science since 1945, as they reported in a paper published in the journal Nature on January 4. The rate of big discoveries decreased across all fields measured, including social sciences, hard sciences, medicine, and technology.
The word disruptive can have many meanings, says Funk, the lead researcher on the new paper. “It’s a very particular way of measuring,” he says. “Are you carving out and pushing new directions in science? Or are you building off and refining existing stuff?” https://www.popsci.com/science/recent-disruptive-science-slowed/

Hej! Jag har börjat lyssna på böcker genom Legimus (som man får ha om man har läs o skrivsvårigheter, har du det så kolla upp det) och jag vill gärna ha tips på böcker att läsa och skriv gärna lite varför du tycker dom är bra.
Gärna facklitteratur, historia, politik, biografier med mera.
Jag har läst Sapiens, tänker läsa uppföljaren 21 tankar om 21a århundrandet och nu lyssnar jag på sidenvägarna. Liv 3.0 började jag läsa men den tror jag är värt att läsa igen.
Det behöver inte nödvändigtvis vara mastodontböcker som jag precis räknande upp här ovan (som jag tror kommer ta tid att läsa).

2022.12.03 23:11 Total_Information_65 New Member: lifelong cluster headache/migraine sufferer. Want to share what I've learned in terms of preventing, coping, and relief. Would like to share with researchers as well.
Hello all. I have spend a lifetime dealing with these things. I am 100% sure what begins a cluster period for me is one of 2 things. I am 99.7% certain of one of the items; less sure about the other. I am happy to discuss with anyone how I deduced what it is. What steps I go through to make sure I steer clear of the ingredients that begin a cluster-period. If I make a mistake and begin getting them, I have additional tricks to get clusters to stop without using any meds. I had to do all of this because 15 years ago, most every med I took stopped working because I had taken all of them (every possible tryptan, amitriptyline, calcium channel blockers, etc etc).
I figured I would keep this intro basic and if anyone wants to ask questions I will happily answer and provide links and details of what has worked for me. I realize we are all different people so different things are going to work for all of us. But I am very happy to be part of a community where I can share how I've dealt with this pain.
I'd also like to clarify my willingness to try and get involved with some kind of research. I say that here because I am essentially frustrated and annoyed with trying to be part of some kind of "study" that I always see advertised. Most of the "migraine research studies" I see advertised are nothing more than pharmaceutical companies soliciting participants to try a new medication for people to waste their hard-earned $$$ on. To me the pharmaceuticals are bullshit. So if anyone knows any one that studies the physiology of Homo-sapiens, more specifically the cardio-vascular system or central nervous system - I would gladly like to have discussions regarding the biology of what is actually happening.
Again, I'm glad to have found this group. Hope I can be of help down the road. Thank You and feel free to message me or ask me here anything regarding my history, progress, or discoveries with cluster headaches.

2022.12.01 02:02 Kafkaezque1 Question about LBRP/LBRH combimations and strengthening/dissipating magick
So Ive been pracricing Lesser Banishing of the Pentagram and Lesser Banishing of the Hexagram both for a litte bit. I also came across this article that has a interesting take on the different effects the different combinations of the four (ex. LIRP followed by LBRH, or vice versa) will have on the Magick you do that either proceeds or follows them. The article claims that the combination of the two banishing rituals together, will not only clear thw field, but essentially "factory reset" on anything youve bee working on, unless its ro something physical, like a sigil or talisman. So, long story short, being someone who also works with things like morphic fields (sapien med, matreiya) as well as would like to incorporate spells, but also feels a banishing field is helpful as cleansing, would doing oit essentially wipe out/or discontine the progress made by using morphic fields, etc?

2022.11.24 02:19 Nicolasforero What’s Your Take on Only Reading Tedious, Long, Difficult, and Redundant Books?
Ok, so here's my experience-based thesis mixed with neuroscience findings on how learning works.
According to Art Kohn, who has a Ph.D. in cognitive science, we forget 50% of the data we see or hear within an hour
. We forget 70% of it after one day and 90% after a week.
Assuming this is true, we, on average, remember 25 pages worth of content from a 250-page book after a week. "Remember" is defined as the capacity to recall about 10% of the general meaning of a book, not as your odds of rehearsing 10% of the pages word-for-word. If you have an average reading speed of 238 words per minute and the 250-page book has 90,000 words, it will take you 6.3 hours to read it. Out of these hours, only 0.63 led to learning. The rest were more or less wasted.
I say "more or less" because you don't know the parts of a book you will value the most until you read all of it. So your 10% of value might be at the beginning, middle, or end. But it's time wasted, as you won't remember what you read during the remaining 5.67 hours. Almost six fewer hours to write, play with your kids, or read this newsletter.
Reading tedious, long, difficult, and redundant books (TLDR)1
can get you part of those hours back. These books make your brain grasp information faster and recall more of it. The best part is you don't have to do anything other than reading—no Pomodoro sessions, spaced repetition, or writing about the subject you read. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but allow me to explain.
The TLDR-ness of a book is subjective and variable.
What you know, believe, and are open to exploring defines the TLDR-ness of a book:
- Reading about the theory of how magic mushrooms developed human consciousness might be tedious for an evolutionist. Even if they might learn something new, their beliefs push them away from reading about it. But, to me, it's a topic worth exploring.
- A 1000-page book might be long for a designer but not for an academic
- A book on how to knit might be more difficult for a philosopher than Schopenhauer's The World as Will and Representation.
- For someone, a book that repeatedly talks about a few concepts might be redundant. But it might not be for me if I enjoy being reminded of previous information.
TLDR-ness is also variable. As you read more of these books, the threshold to consider one as TLDR rises. You get used to longer books, you understand more concepts, so it's easier to link new ones to old ones, and you are more open to exploring new subjects.
Thus, to benefit from the following memory benefits from reading these books, you must read what's TLDR to the current you.
TLDR books help your brain store information easier and for longer
Encoding is a brain process that creates a mental representation of what you saw, heard, or touched. Neuroscientists call these mental representations traces.
Our brains store traces in our short-term memory. They are meaningless patterns containing details of what happened and when it happened
. Think of traces as old household items you put in a storage facility. You know they exist but do not know what you can do with them yet. So you store them. You might use them or not. Learning a novel topic leaves traces in our brains that we will mostly forget.
One way to help your brain store traces in your long-term memory is to apply what you learned from a book in real life. When we use what we learn, we help our brain store what we read for longer. Apply means doing anything with the knowledge you read:
- Teaching a class
- Writing an essay
- Changing a process at work
This use of knowledge must happen before the trace vanishes.
This is difficult to do with short, simple books as you read them fast. I can finish a 250-page book in six hours. Six days from beginning to end if I read one hour daily. If I do, I'll have seven days from that moment forward to apply all that I've learned. Even if the information is straightforward, seven days is not enough time to apply it. Some knowledge might persist for a long time, maybe decades, but most won't.
It's easier to encode information from a longer, more complex book. Your reading pace will be slower because you will take more time to read each page. So, reading one hour daily, you might only get to 25% of a 500-word book on week one. On week two, as you read the next 25% of the book, you will only have to apply 25% of the book's learnings, not 100%.
A counterargument is that TLDR books often pack more data into each chapter. The 25% of a book you consider TLDR is more challenging to grasp than the 25% of a simple book. So you will read fewer words, but you will have more information to apply per chapter.
This is true, but our brain benefits from the raised difficulty that TLDR books pose. It is easier for it to store information that is challenging to grasp and remember. This is because forgetting
is key to making a trace part of your long-term memory. When you struggle to recall information, the trace strengthens. As long as you retrieve it, says psychologist Henry Roediger
, the more likely you will recall the information in the future.
Therefore, it is
easier to understand a simple concept than a complex one. But, the lack of struggle to grasp it can reduce your chances of forgetting it in the short term and storing it in your long-term memory.
The need for difficulty explains why you can't read a simple book slowly to have more time to apply the information. You will
recall more of it if you read it six times. But that'll make the material easier to grasp, giving up on the benefits that come from learning challenging ideas.
The length of TLDR books also aids the brain in consolidating what you read.
Consolidation is the brain's process of structuring traces via sleep and association with knowledge
from the past. The longer the book is, the more information you have to connect. You can link a concept from the second chapter with those from 20 more.
For example, let's say you have read ten 100-page straightforward evolutionary psychology books. And I've read ten 1,000-page TLDR books. So by the 11th book, I'll have at least 1,000 pages to connect to the new material (10% out of 10,000), while you have 100.
You might think, "wouldn't I have the same amount of links to you if I read a hundred 100-page books?" No, because you would still have had less time to apply what you read than I did.
Remember. The faster you read, assuming you are always reading at least one book, the less time you have to apply what you learned.
Read fewer books that are not tedious, long, difficult, and redundant
A long, complex book will give you more headaches than a short, simple one. It might be tedious if it explains one concept repeatedly. But you are also more likely to remember it because of how your memory works.
Read The Wealth of Nations, not
Freakonomics. Maps of Meaning, not
12 Rules for Life. Deceit, Desire, and the Novel, not
Wanting. On the Origin of Species, not
Sapiens. The Beginning of Infinity, not
The Alchemist. A Treatise of Human Nature, not
How to Win Friends and Influence People. Crime and Punishment, not
The Hunger Games.
Read what's challenging today, so it's easy to remember it for the rest of your life.
Footnote 1: I'm aware that tl;dr
is an abbreviation for too long, didn't read.
This is not a play on that acronym nor a reference to its meaning. I went with TLDR to present a new concept under a known acronym so it's easier for you to recall this essay.
Footnote 2: There's a threshold of TLDR beyond which the benefits don't apply because it's too difficult. To me, I'll struggle, say, reading one of Carl Jung's complex books. But I believe I can understand any under the right reading setting. But, assuming I can do that, it will be because I have past knowledge that works as the foundation for the data I'm trying to encode.
On the other hand, I might not be able to understand Wittgenstein's "Tractatus Logico-philosophicus." I've heard it is a challenging book that requires above-average IQ and previous knowledge to grasp.
This does not mean that one should pick books that aren't difficult. But we should pick books that are difficult but within our reach after enough headaches.
