Dream are cool. have you heard of lucid dreaming? It's when you become aware that you are dreaming and are able to control it. I have only experienced this twice in my life when I was much younger, around age 10 or so. I don't remember much of the dream now but I do remember the feeling of amazement and excitement for the next time I got...

It's easy to consume, not necessarily passively, but extraneously... I notice it most when I visit one of those image blogs with the never-ending scroll bar, or when reading — it's even more difficult to put the thing down when it's actually informative, useful. To gain knowledge is a wonderful thing; to think is even better....

I just watched all 6 of the movies on the space collective homepage and while most of it was inspiring, I found some of it kind of scary. One of the clips even has a picture from an incident that happened 2 days ago, that was fast. It makes me think that the people who created those videos are leaning on the pessimistic side which inherently does...

In the chapter titled Author as Producer of Walter Benjamin's Reflections, he introduces Sergei Tretiakov's 'operating writer', and how his/her mission, as opposed to the 'informing writer', is "not to report but to struggle; not to play the spectator but to intervene actively". This description is of the author not as activist--because...

The sticker network is a network made with wirelless stickers. Control over the internet leads to a new form of independent network: the sticker network. This is in fact an open internet wich may interconnect wirelless routers or work as standalone. All you have to do is stick arround. Glue stickers everywhere. Large quantities of stickers are...

The first decade of the 21st century is about to end in just a few weeks. Among many things, I find most impacting the explosion of knowledge in the field of brain sciences and human behavior in this decade. Though the great riddles of consciousness and the emergence of minds from brains are still open and far from any solution, many connections...

...But then I think, I've seen this before, too, in some or other form. This thing I'm looking at, whatever it is. And the realization is that it was never mine or theirs to begin with, but Ours. All of this is Ours.

I recently had an email exchange about Space Collective with our well-known friend, Obviously Subtle . In the email, he said something that really stuck with me.

Adolf Loos' Ornament and Crime holds a favourite ammunition of mine in defense of immateriality: I have therefore evolved the following maxim, and pronounce it to the world: the evolution of culture marches with the elimination of ornament from useful objects. How would I define what ornament is today? Ornament, a constant in decoration culture,...

Truth is sacrosanct to the human character. The only way we can build a philosophical construct of our identity is through cornerstones of truth, upon which we build more complex structures of truth for the purposes of explaining our reality. We all share one, indivisible truth - the acceptance of our unique perception. Everyone inately...
