Like, I think cats and lots of other animals have gaze detection or sth.

They sleep. I look at them. At that exact moment they shake , and run away. Happened so many times, it can’t all be coincidences.

Most impressive case was when I was sitting in a garden, doing nothing for like an hour. I notice there’s a black dot on the wall in front of me, but I don’t care. After like ten minutes or so, I get interested and ask myself, what is that black dot? I look at it and try to focus, and at that fucking moment I notice it’s a lizard, and it runs away like if it was panicking.

Yeah, I know that. Suppressed memories are like “locked drawers”, and if you open them, all of that mess is overwhelming. That is why you are supposed to open them slowly, one after one. Sorry your therapist didn’t tell you that.

Some people have such a weak presence that most people simply don’t see them.

I guess lots of people just like to talk.

And writing responses like that comes close to that. I understand it, kinda, because I use to do the same. When somebody writes me some message or sth, I often reply with a short (but still unnecessarily long) text. I even do this when I wasn’t directly talked to. So that’s a habit.

I believe it’s really just like silicate sand. The problem with microplastics isn’t actually the plastics itself. Plastics itself is chemically inert and therefore non-toxic. The problems are:

  • Physical: larger junks can cause constipation of the digestive track, which is a problem for some sea animals.
  • Chemical: Plastics often have additives that give them special powers, like blocking UV-light. These additives are often toxic, unfortunately. This is why producers nowadays try to minimize the use of additives in plastics. But still, they are there.

Well to be fair, land bugs have harder shell, and are therefore more uncomfortable to eat.

Fresh urine is supposed to be sterile, unless you got a serious problem, anyways.

Ok, thanks for the note.

Apparently, fresh urine is not completely sterile, but almost sterile.
In the german Wikipedia, it says:

Da auch die untere Harnröhre nicht völlig keimfrei ist, enthält Urin beim Austritt bis zu 10.000 Keime pro Milliliter. Allerdings sind diese in der Regel gesundheitlich unbedenklich und indizieren in dieser geringen Konzentration insbesondere keine Antibiothika-Therapie.[65][66] Zum Vergleich: Speichel enthält rund 100 Millionen Keime pro Milliliter.[67]

Translation: “Basically, urine contains 10^4 germs per millilitre. That’s very low count, considering saliva contains 10^8 germs per millilitre. […]”

(Translation by me)

I got that wrong in my head. Probably, everything is only almost sterile, not completely sterile, except if you look at another planet. But for practical purposes, the number of germs is often negligible.

Apparently, they used to pee on each other’s wounds in earlier times to disinfect wounds. Since pee was much closer to being sterile than anything else they had access to. So that’s where this thought comes from. (Source: Someone told me this years ago.)

Nightcore’s my fav thing, besides eat. So if you wanna eat, come to my place.

You can put the glitter glue in your face and call yourself a princess.

Nightcore is actually how I got into Anime, through the song “Moonlight Shadow”.

Also is that a reference to something or r u inviting me to chat in a funny way? X3

No I was being funny, in my own weird way.

When you list two things, one conventional (“eat”) and one unconventional (“nightcore”), people expect you to elaborate on the unconventional. Instead, I elaborated on the conventional. Funny because unexpected.

But now that you mentioned it, yeah I do invite you to chat or sth. Unfortunately I haven’t installed Matrix yet or sth, so I don’t have a client. (I actually exist outside of the matrix as of right now - now that’s a reference to something).

Actually, a friend of mine used to do this. She was pretty. ~

I can also very much recommend lentins.

They are good. There’s even pasta made out of lentins. It is gluten free. You use it like ordinary pasta. It’s good.

It’s not “so pure”, I was just trying to extrapolate from whatever crappy description for the seven sefirot was given. Mine is water/tummy, which is called “charity” here, and purple/spiritual, which is called “humility” here. I’m referring to this here:

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-keD1rCWpBnM/UgUoHS68iWI/AAAAAAAAECE/mQc60tAB0rI/s640/7-chakras+09-Aug-13+10-59-42+PM.jpg

Yeah, this idea is pretty widespread.

To give you a short summary:

  • In India people very long time ago came up with a concept named “Chakra”, which means something like “spiritual energy”. It’s not energy in the physical sense, but something more like willpower, concentration or sth.
  • In Jewish mysticism, people came up with a concept named “Sefirot” in their studies (Kabala). It’s different words, but basically it means the same thing or something very similar to Chakra. It is “the aspects of god inside the human”, so, in other words, spiritual powers.
  • In christian religion, they have “the seven deadly sins”, which represent malfunctions of each of the spiritual energies. For example, if your hunger doesn’t work, it becomes gluttony. If your responsibility doesn’t work, it becomes greed. These “sins” are supposed to be warning signs, to lead you back to the proper function of each spiritual energy.
  • There’s more examples of religion coming up with a very similar concept, but these are the most-well-known.

Oh, and I forgot: In almost all religions, or schools of spirituality, there’s said to be seven (though the number varies depending on context) “spiritual energies” or centers, and they are commonly associated with the internal organs. They are said to be mere symbolism for your character (word is cognate with “chakra”), which in turn is a direct result of the configuration of your internal organs.

If you want any link, this one might do, though I admit, it is dificult getting good-quality resources on this. Most of what I know I have learned over years, and a lot of it from introspection. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

Like, I have a natural tendency towards the “spirit world”. So it comes easy to me.

I mean, I’m not sure what to say to this one, except remember that all life is valuable, including yours.

Though I admit that sometimes, things are difficult, and I don’t know what to say.

Actually, I believe it should be possible (albeit horrendously slow) by memory-mapping the disk to address space.
