Eyebright is a tiny herb that grows readily in backyards, fields, and pastures. It contains anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergenic properties. As the name suggests, eyebright is known for being particularly beneficial for eye related problems such as conjunctivitis, cataracts, blurry vision, weakened vision, and swollen, puffy eyes. Eyebright is also excellent for alleviating symptoms related to sinusitis, colds, seasonal allergies, and respiratory ailments. Eyebright can also enhance memory and improve overall cognitive performance. As a topical cream or poultice, eyebright can significantly improve acne and skin irritations. Eyebright is commonly found online or at your local health food store as a tea, capsule, tincture, cream, or salve. Eyebright is often combined with bilberry for enhanced benefits. If you find it in tea form, steep for at least five minutes in order to fully extract its healing properties.
The field of quantum theory is like Disney land – everything is possible!
Yesterday I was introduced to Nassim Haramein’s grand unified field theory by my girlfriend through a popularized presentation on youtube. Although Nassim Haramein say “oh my God” a bit to often for my personal taste, he comes across as is an original thinker.
In short “we are embedded in a fractal feedback dynamic that intrinsically connects all things via the medium of a vacuum structure of infinite potential”.
Nassim Haramein touches such diverse subjects as Applied physics, Quantum mechanics, Anthropology, Archeology, Astrophysics, Biology, Black Hole Physics, Chemistry, Cosmology, Crop Circles, Event, Psychology and Sociology.
I tried to find Nassim Haramein’s page on wikipedia.org but apparently it has been deleted.
One of Nassim Haramein’s logics: If the world is expanding, the world must be contracting at the same time, according to Newtons fundamental law of motion in physics (To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction). This is a compelling argument, but what do this have to do with messages to the human race from outer space in crop circles?
Thank God I am not a physicist or even a scientist, but just a layman.
A few recipes from the straight forward, very practical and ingenious food branch of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) to cure hangovers from drinking to much alcohol.
a. 15 g tea infused in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drink a large cupful.
b. Put 15 g of withe sugar in 30 ml vinegar. Dilute with hot water, and when the sugar has completely dissolved drink.
c. Take 60. g black soya beans. Add a suitable amount of water and heat until boiling, then drink.
My personal tips in order to avoid a severe hangover after a drinking binge:
(water, protein, sugar, salt, vitamins)
Drink a large amount of water
Eat a protein rich snack (ex. eggs and bacon, herring or salmon)
Spice with salt
Take a vitamin pill or a vitamin C
Drink Orange Juice
The body should of curse rest (sleep) to be able to recuperate properly. Drink 2 big glasses of water before going to bed.
The day after. Some light exercise and appropriate massage to relieve tensions may be in place after the circumstances. Some people feel that a walk helps. My girlfriend recommends a warm bath for the feet with herbs – against colds and others symptoms of discomfort!
It is generally recognised now that, although we have all these amazing decision-making strategies, people generally make decisions based on emotions.
What emotions also do is focus your attention. For example, if I was really angry with you, my attention would be focused on you. If I’m just curious about something, I would still have that level of attention but it would be much softer.
Emotions also regulate the flow of information. So, if I’m really angry with you, the information flows from me to you. If I’m curious about something you’re saying, the information flows from you to me.
Emotions also regulate the flow of energy. So, when you have a strong emotion, the energy is going out of you. That’s why anger is so draining. When I’m curious or interested, I’m sucking in the information. So, emotions have a huge amount to do with our thinking.
Nuclear powered vacuuum cleaners will probably be a reality within 10 years.

This morning when I opened my terminal on my local computer a new tcsh shell popped up with this strange thought provoking cookie! “Fortune” is a well known little nifty Unix app that servers the cookies. You can find fortune cookie files all over the net. And you can easily write your own cookie files with your own profound sentences and make them into .dat files with “Strfile” that is readable with “Fortune”. Take a look at the man fortune and man strfile. Unfortunately not all Unix systems today comes with the fortune app out the box – but then go and hunt for it!
Btw I found some profound quotes at the goblogua yesterday that I have compiled into a goblogua.zip file for download for use with the Fortune app (Right click to download – both files are used and remember to leave the .dat part out i.e. just Fortune goblogua ).
At the moment I am reading an interesting book that makes me turn pages with an amazing ease and in the same manner do away with my preconceptions of the wise.
The argument of the book is that chasing the expert is a mistake. We should stop hunting and ask the crowd. Chances are, the crowd knows much better and is much more accurate that any individual or small group of esoteric experts. This simple fact of science is especially true in problems of cognition, coordination and cooperation.
“The best way for a group to be smart is for each person in it to think and act as independently as possible.” “Diversity and independence are important because the best collective decisions are the product of disagreement and contest, not consensus and compromise.”
Given the right circumstances this is one of the best arguments in favor the free market – stripped of all other ideological nonsense! Its one of the best praises of individuality I have ever heard. This thesis of the crowd reinforces my belief in democracy.
