i want to be the absence of things. by Pixie Cosmina, on Flickr

    I’m in bed, lying on my side. I can see myself in the mirror, but I cannot move. My body feels like absolute dead weight. I struggle to move at all. I move my hands and arms around; I can feel it happening, but am puzzled because they are completely invisible, 100%. I […]

17 Aug

Observer by H. Koppdelaney

  The nontheistic aspect of Buddhism intrigues me because I have a hard time identifying with anything that strikes of theism.

The Death of Lucid Dreaming

26 Jul

Will virtual reality mean the death of lucid dreaming? Recently I saw the movie eXistenZ by David Cronenburg.

To play, you have to surgically install a “bio-port” at the base of the […]
