Project Soli chip

The future is here and you can control it with your hand! – Project Soli by Google

Google’s Project Soli brings a new level of interactivity to our world, further enmeshing our digital lives and enriching our interactions with the devices around us.

Soli is a new sensing technology that uses miniature radar to detect touchless gesture interactions.

At only 8mm x 10mm, the chip is small enough to be embedded in smart watches, phones, and all of the typical smart devices we have grown to love.

The key to Soli interactions is the Virtual Tools, which are gestures that mimic familiar interactions with physical tools.

See how it works in this video:

constantly trying to make you something else

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

France to shut down all coal-fired power plants by 2023

In an announcement at the COP22 UN climate change conference this week, French president Francois Hollande stated that all of the country’s coal-fired power plants will be shuttered by 2023. The move is part of an effort to achieve carbon neutrality in France by 2050. This shouldn’t be too hard to achieve, considering that the country already derives 75 percent of its power from nuclear energy. (Whether or not that’s an improvement is, of course, a hot topic of debate within the environmental community.)

Sacred Economics

I was feeling the pain of our separation and division today.

This short film was just the right medicine I needed.

Thank you Ian Mackenzie for producing this and thanks to Charles Eisenstein for speaking the truth!

Onwards and upwards!

 

 

Directed by Ian MacKenzie http://ianmack.com
Produced by Velcrow Ripper, Gregg Hill, Ian MacKenzie

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.

Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

What are Film Dailies?

This is an example of what raw film dailies (footage shot every day) look like. It will feel strange to watch them if you’ve never seen this before. The scene will feel long and boring. The are several reasons for this. First and foremost it’s because there are no cuts. The editing is not pointing our attention towards anything in particular. That’s because there is no editing! Secondly, we are seeing just one performance. In this scene alone the director filmed more this scene more than 12 times! Just think, the editor is putting together the best instances of all 12 of these performances.

 

 

who is schematic?

who is schematic?

shematic ?

yes, my friend, that things that you are holding in your hand, that piece of paper, for which you have toiled these years, read it….

what does it say?

1…

A tulip!

And where did it come from?

THE NEXUS OF BEING!

Have you seen that place?
So near, so dear…
There @ —..>>>—>>>

Do you see it?
That dot floating in blackness?
The strumming of our guitar?
That melody?
The human language?
Will you stand with me?

I’m lonely

These people….

They…

They..

Know!

They are so fucking du….

I mean they are evolving, right?

You mean you are not seeing it?
Look—~
That one is your childhood friend
This one is motherless
That one just learned something new
These ones awakening
He is with you
She is your mother
I am you

It’s all here

These troubling lines….
What times do we live in>?
I < ME ME > I
?

WHAT ABOUT WE?

The forest grows stronger
The herds have no fences

IT”S ALL IN YOUR HEAD@!!

The truth validated!
Today is the day!
And bullshit no matter.
You’ve got the toolset
We’ll get behind you!

The networks of freedom
A soul mate connection
We all stand, shoulder to shoulder
I hear you panting….
You and I brother, are Sisyphus neither
The Rock is a blessing
The Mountain is endless
The nexus of nectars
The Falcon’s perspectives
It rolls and rolls down
The hill that we are vexing
So lets bring about the change we are seeking!

The World needs the Word

That we are all preaching
Another cranks turn
The gears and teeth dig in ever deeper
We stand and pound the drum of the ages
And who da fuck says that we are all sages?

From learning to crawl,
To being locked up in cages.

So sow your seeds wide
And grow your roots outwards and inwards
When lyrics are poets
The Muse soars ever steeper!
