Wow, the awesome is strong in this one.

"

To say a developer is a coder would be like saying a composer is a note-writer.

Or a violinist is a string-plucker.

An architect is a person who draws stuff on paper.

All of these describe a trivial manifestation of what’s actually going on: creativity.

The frontier of the body is divided up in this layer which separates the interior from the exterior, hidden or revealed. And if we had the possibility…

The womb panties are kind of seriously awesome.

"Fuck You, Old People" — Group Piece at CUPSI 2014

"By the way, you can’t actually pick yourself up by your own bootstraps. That’s now how physics works."

FUCK. YES.

this gives me life….

"Act your fucking age" god damn, this has a good message here.

39 seconds in and I reblogged it

This is the best. Thing. Ever. 

I was a little offended by the “act your fucking age” quote at first, but actually I think it’s dead on. We’re supposed to be older and wiser. And a lot of us aren’t acting like it. But please don’t ask us to wear polyester leisure suits.

"Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do."

Cicero, 106 BC - 43 BC (via lazyyogi)

It really frustrates me people assume that because we have all kinds of cool scientific results and nifty technology, we are magically wise. Science is awesome, and I love it. The communicator/tricorder/slate in my pocket is really nice. But these things do not make us wise. They makes us better informed (or not, in the case of the interwebs).

It would be great if we could take some of the things science has told us about neurophysiology and cognitive bias and turn them into wisdom. Or we could just listen to Cicero and Heraclitus and the other ancients who already developed it.

(The above are things that you could hear in any authentic lecture on Buddhism, which is even more ancient than Cicero, by a few hundred years.)

I think a big issue is that Tumblr equates forgiveness and understanding with…complicity and submission and that’s SO NOT THE CASE.  Just because you forgive and/or understand someone’s actions does not mean you condone them???  Forgiveness is not a passive act!!!

Right. Forgiveness is something you do for you, not something you do for them. Forgiving someone who hurts you does not mean pretending they didn’t hurt you. It means letting go of it and moving on. But when someone who’s abused you asks for forgiveness, often that means that they want to go back to the way things were, and have no intention of changing. So I think that’s what people are reacting to when they make the connection you are talking about.

"I think you should learn, of course, and some days you must learn a great deal. But you should also have days when you allow what is already in you to swell up inside of you until it touches everything. And you can feel it inside of you. If you never take time out to let that happen, then you accumulate facts, and they begin to rattle around inside of you. You can make noise with them, but never really feel anything with them. It’s hollow."

— E.L. Konigsburg, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (via quoted-books)
