Dreadfully Unfortunate Formerly "Conflict of the Orders"

anarchycamp:

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery—isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.” ― Charles Bukowski, Factotum

April 15th is celebrated as Buddha’s Enlightenment Day. On the full moon of the 4th month, 2,600 years ago, at Bodh Gaya, India in 589 BC., Buddha Shakyamuni showed the example of transcending ordinary reality and the possibility of going beyond suffering. Over the next 50 years he taught 84,000 teachings so that we could do the same.

Every living being has the potential to become a Buddha. Buddha attained enlightenment with the compassionate wish to benefit all living beings and lead them to pure lasting happiness. May we all rejoice in Buddhas compassionate example and continuously use our life to improve our kind heart!
Happy Buddha’s Enlightenment Day!

The biases of pop psychologyby Vaughan Bell
I just found this great piece at Scientific American that makes a fascinating point about how pop psychology books that inform us about our biases tend not to inform us about our most important bias – the effect of making things into stories – despite the fact that they rely on it to get their message across. The piece starts by quoting economist Tyler Cowen:

“There’s the Nudge book, the Sway book, the Blink book… [they are] all about the ways in which we screw up. And there are so many ways, but what I find interesting is that none of these books identify what, to me, is the single, central, most important way we screw up, and that is, we tell ourselves too many stories, or we are too easily seduced by stories. And why don’t these books tell us that? It’s because the books themselves are all about stories. The more of these books you read, you’re learning about some of your biases, but you’re making some of your other biases essentially worse. So the books themselves are part of your cognitive bias.”
The crux of the problem, as Cowen points out, is that it’s nearly impossible to understand irrationalities without taking advantage of them. And, paradoxically, we rely on stories to understand why they can be harmful.

‘Great story!’ you might say, instantly causing a cognitive bias loop from which you might never emerge.

Ghostly Zodiacal Light Glows Over Death Valley

The zodiacal light appears roughly triangular in shape in this view. It is caused by sunlight scattering from dust particles lying in the ecliptic, the imaginary plane that contains the planets orbiting the sun. Zodiacal light sometimes goes by the name of “false dawn.”
