Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:3849011616

Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348088
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle. Every little bit helps2013-04-26 21:02:03419226277

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967159161

We don't need the govt going after young people who download research articles illegally from a non-profit who doesn't mind sharing the articles anyway

This is absurd! Why is our govt trying to prosecute someone for wanting access to research articles from JSTOR? Taxes pay for most research anyway, and there is no harm done in making this research available. This is not only wrong, it's crazy and stupid. These people don't belong in office if they can't use their judgement as to who to prosecute.

Try out one of the best new age bullshit generator!

I had such a good laugh when I tried this out. A computer algorithm will generate spiritual quantum babble to your heart's content. And the sad truth is that you could find all sorts of gullible people that would bite the hook.

Need help with MotoX Android dialer app

I just recently got the MotoX and was excited to get access to the stock Android apps, including the dialer. But now I am very disappointed because the dialer seems devoid of critical features. It might be that I am just not understanding how to use it, but I cannot seem to be able to go into my call history and click on a call and add it as a contact. This was possible in the iPhone and even the Samsung dialer provided this basic feature. Why is this not possible from stock Android?

Tried to load cyanogenmod onto my Samsung Galaxy S3 using the Mac OSX installer. I can't get past the "we couldn't talk to your device" message even though on the phone it already had the cyanogenmod logo and warned not to turn off the device. Is Galaxy S3 AT&T an unsupported device? Installing cyanogenmod seems insanely difficult.

Loving Kindness Meditation is good for your happiness and health, and it's good for your family, friends and fellow humans as well

This article outlines great research showing the effects of loving kindness meditation on the brain. If you're interested in loving kindness meditation, this is what you do:

Take someone close to you that you love very much, from whom you have benefited much, or for whom you have been a benefactor, and wish well being and happiness for them:

May you be happy, may you be at ease
May you be well
May you be safe from inner and outer dangers
May you be at peace
May you be free from suffering
 
Then, extend this to extended family and friends, all the people in your community that you like very much and repeat the same wishes.

Then, try to do it for someone neutral, people you don't know or feel ambivalent to. 

Then try doing it for all sentient beings.

Then, try doing it for yourself.

Finally, try to do it for someone you dislike.

At any time, if you feel you loose the feeling of compassion, start again with the benefactor and try to move out from that center. 

In the East, people start with themselves, then a benefactor. But because self hatred is so pre-programmed in Western thinking, it's hard for most people to start with themselves, hence we start with a benefactor instead. 

Remember, this is not a thinking exercise, it's an exercise in feeling.

Can Quantum Biology Account for adaptations that defy chance?

People often seem to polarize across two extremes: 1) life forms as we know it today have evolved via Darwin's principle purely by chance production of mutations. 2) Life forms were created by God via intelligent design. Well, I don't buy either and I agree with +Jera Wolfe that these are not the only two options.

bacterial cultures have been observed to evolve clever responses to lab toxins at speeds that – just like the emergence of DNA from a primordial soup – defy astronomical odds. The new field of quantum biology tries to address some of those discrepancies.

Even Buddhism is not immune to the mega Church syndrome

Every religion has the potential to get perverted, and Buddhism is no exception. The attached article was first published in the Bangkok Post and describes a religious fanatic movement within Thai Buddhism that incorporates everything from salvation to Satan along with missionaries, a recruiting system, a solid hierarchical power system and a plethora of superstitious beliefs. After all, it's not possible to create an efficient religious meme without these ingredients.

It is the abbot Phra Dhammachayo who has created this discourse, she adds. According to this genesis, there was nothing but empty space. Then emerged white and black energy. The white camp has retreated to planet Earth and created humankind, an ethereal body which is a source of knowledge to fight evil.

The White Dhammakaya, teaches Phra Dhammachayo, is behind civilisations and progress, while the Black Dhammakaya tries to destroy the world through natural disasters, disease and wars.

The belief that Phra Dhammachayo is a reincarnation of this Original Dhammakaya has made him an all-powerful leader who is both revered and feared.

Pseudo-Scientific Religious Babble

I have to admit that I have serious issues with science being abused to the sakes of pushing a religious and emotional agenda. I make a distinction between the realities of science, which present a common truth based on reproducible empirical results, and the realities of our inner world, which are highly subjective. Just because two or more people have the same "inner experience" doesn't make it real in a scientific sense.

Scientific results hold no matter what the person's inner world might be. It doesn't matter what a person believes or feels. The results are the same. However, inner "truths" are highly subjective. It's true that certain inner phenomena are relatively universal. Such reproducible inner truths fall within the realm of psychology.

While the results of science can be awe inspiring, emotions lie within the realm of the heart - in other words, human psychology, and that's where it should stay. It's better not to mix the two.___

Welcome to Comcast Customer Support Hell

All our services went down yesterday, no internet, no phone, no 911, and we are in a rural area outside of the Bay Area. After speaking to +Comcast customer support for three hours, still no resolution.  Meanwhile I burned up a chunk of my wireless plan minutes. They farmed out their customer support to some foreign country, either the Philippines or Mexico, and the tech support people have no clue.

Then, they said we would get a tech person to come out this Morning between 7-8AM, but no one showed up. When we called back in, they said the tech visit was scheduled for Saturday. Lovely. After an escalation, they promised to come out this afternoon, we are crossing our fingers. But based on Yelp reviews, chances are slim they will actually show up.

Comcast customer support is broken in a bad way. #FAIL  Comcast products are good and priced competitively, but if +AT&T  Fiber bundles were available in our area with their UVerse, we would already have jumped ship. Comcast stands to loose a lot of business as its competition gears up to offer higher bandwidth levels.

The whole universe is instantly informed about what happens in it

Perhaps our notion of time is artificial and limited by what we can perceive. We experience a time-constrained "causal" horizon, but that does not mean this causal horizon can't be overcome.

This is a cool article about the intersection of string theory and cosmology. This passage in particular is the most interesting and seems relevant to pantheist interests. it also seems in line with Buddhist cosmology, which talks about the birth and death of many universes.

In eternal chaotic inflation, the big bang was not the beginning. Rather, it was a beginning—only one of many.

ECI views our universe, then, not as a unique phenomenon, but as one particular universe among many, each of which has its own laws of physics. The image commonly invoked here is foam on a head of beer: a roiling mass of inflation in all directions. Such a picture is some-times called the "multiverse" to designate an unending series of bubble universes, each one undergoing its own cycle of birth, expansion, and potential collapse. The bang has become the bangs.

Dear fellow friends in the Santa Cruz Mountains, brace yourselves for a cold night!

It's down to 33F in Boulder Creek as of 7PM. It's going to be a very, very cold night.

California on the verge of a deep freeze

It's 7PM, and many locations are already near or at the freezing mark. There isn't s single cloud in the sky, dew points are running in the low 20's. The low humidity combined with crystal clear skies are making for super clear visibility. The downside of that is that these conditions also maximize radiative cooling processes. It's going to be a long, long and cold night. There will most likely be damage to the citrus crop by tomorrow Morning. Even Southern California locations sheltered from northerly winds are heading into sub-freezing ranges. 

We can all thank the greenhouse effect and the associated stratospheric warming over the North pole that is pushing cold air down to lower latitudes. Ironically, warmer air at the poles is causing the massive arctic air outpour around the world. The cold air has made it all the way into the middle East for record snow fall in Israel, and extreme cold all over China.

Of course, the record low temperatures in California will be followed by above average temperatures with widespread 70's and low 80's by next weekend.

The low humidity combined with crystal clear skies are making for super clear visibility. The downside of that is that these conditions also maximize radiative cooling processes. It's going to be a long, long and cold night. There will most likely be damage to the citrus crop by tomorrow Morning. Even Southern California locations sheltered from northerly winds are heading into sub-freezing ranges. 

We can all thank the greenhouse effect and the associated stratospheric warming over the North pole that is pushing cold air down to lower latitudes. Ironically, warmer air at the poles is causing the massive arctic air outpour around the world. The cold air has made it all the way into the middle East for record snow fall in Israel, and extreme cold all over China.

Of course, the record low temperatures in California will be followed by above average temperatures with widespread 70's and low 80's by next weekend. 

Welcome to the weather of the 21st Century.___

We don't need the govt going after young people who download research articles illegally from a non-profit who doesn't mind sharing the articles anyway

This is absurd! Why is our govt trying to prosecute someone for wanting access to research articles from JSTOR? Taxes pay for most research anyway, and there is no harm done in making this research available. This is not only wrong, it's crazy and stupid. These people don't belong in office if they can't use their judgement as to who to prosecute.

Insight Meditation and The Brain

Insight meditation is a particular style of Buddhist meditation that calls for paying attention to all inner phenomena so that one isn't driven by mind conditioning, but is able to act with full consciousness. Brain MRIs show that in fact, the brain of long term insight meditation practitioners are thicker than non-practitioners. There is a very clear change in the make up of the brain. It's clear that brain plasticity doesn't disappear after childhood. 

This is one article of many that demonstrate verifiable neurological changes from meditation practice.

Why Upgrading to OSX Mountain Lion was a mistake

Instead of Microsoft's blue screen of death, I get Apple's gray screen of death, and it happens relatively frequently. This is one messed up OS, I never had any problems until I upgraded to Mountain Lion. And don't believe the 2459555 sec since last panic report, it happens more often than that. I get crashes that don't even give me a panic report.

String Theory: Physics or Religion?

CERN's LHC does 14E3 GeV,  that's within the range of the standard model, but string theory deals with 10E18GeV, which isn't within the range of any experimental physics for eons to come. So am I correct in assuming that pretty much all of string theory is completely untestable, and the primary appeal is that it's the only thing we've got that gives us a unified quantum field theory of gravity.

This is why I was originally never interested in string theory. Feynman path integrals and diagrams seemed to work just fine, and the standard model does a fine job at bringing together the three main particle forces. What if trying to take Einstein's idea of making gravity geometrical doesn't apply to the other three forces?

What if trying to take Einstein's idea of making gravity geometrical doesn't apply to the other three forces? Granted, I see the appeal, but on the other hand, the basics I've seen so far suggest that all the dancing we have to do to make it work just seems like trying to push a square peg into a round hole. What are we missing?

I know lay people get very excited about this sort of thing, but do they know how little of this theory we can even verify, and how far away we even are at even putting a dent into this sort of thing? It would seem to me that by the time we figure out how to reach these scales experimentally, we'll have figured out how to create an entire universe. Even David Tong says this in his textbook:

Is the Time Ripe?

Our current understanding of physics, embodied in the standard model, is valid up to energy scales of 10E3 GeV. This is 15 orders of magnitude away from the Planck scale. Why do we think the time is now ripe to tackle quantum gravity? Surely we are like the ancient Greeks arguing about atomism. Why on earth do we believe that we’ve developed the right tools to even address the question?

The honest answer, I think, is hubris.

However, there is mild circumstantial evidence that the framework of quantum field theory might hold all the way to the Planck scale without anything very dramatic happening in between. The main argument is unification. The three coupling constants of Nature run logarithmically, meeting miraculously at the GUT energy scale of 10E15 GeV.

Just slightly later, the fourth force of Nature, gravity, joins them. While not overwhelming, this does provide a hint that perhaps quantum field theory can be taken seriously at these ridiculous scales. Historically I suspect this was what convinced large parts of the community that it was ok to speak about processes at 10E18 GeV.

Finally, perhaps the most compelling argument for studying physics at the Planck scale is that string theory does provide a consistent unified quantum theory of gravity and the other forces. Given that we have this theory sitting in our laps, it would be foolish not to explore its consequences.

Youtube doesn't work on the sticks

I just got my Imito MX1 last week, and finally it's fully functional. To my dismay, I discovered that some genius at Google decided to remove the full screen button on the Youtube app and relies on the tilt API instead to get the app to do full screen. Well, sticks can't be rotated unless you want to rotate your entire 48 inch TV. So no more full 1080p video from Youtube. 

So if you're buying an Android stick for watching Youtube, forget it, at least until Google fixes the lack of a full screen button.

Bringing Android into my Living Room

Having +Android in our living room is great, but there are some major, major limitations. Here is second review of the Imito MX1 HDMI stick now that I've had a chance to use it. In order to get the best experience, I finally bought an ethernet USB dongle. Along with a bluetooth mouse and keyboard, our Android TV is fully up and running and it runs amazingly well. However, there are some major, major downsides, none of which come from the Imito MX1 itself, but all come from the Android ecosystem. 1080p video is generally not available because all of the Android apps are designed for max tablet resolution experience, and even Youtube actually doesn't provide full screen viewing experience on the device. It's great for internet access and music, but forget it for video, it won't provide you with any 1080p HD television.

Bringing Android into my Living Room

Having +Android in our living room is great, but there are some major, major limitations. Here is second review of the Imito MX1 HDMI stick now that I've had a chance to use it.

It's great for internet access and music, but forget it for video, it won't provide you with any 1080p HD television.

Audio Apps

we often use our TV to listen to music, the TV itself is hooked up to our stereo, so having Android music apps at our disposal is wonderful. Listening to Google Music, Spotify and Amazon Cloud music is a synch. All of the apps work very well on the Imito MX1. It takes some time to get used to using a mouse instead of your finger, and often, I need to remember to click on the screen to unhide the buttons that normally show up when putting a finger on the screen. The only music app so far that doesn't work properly is +Pandora. For some reason, when clicking on any text input, the keyboard appears but then immediately disappears  making it impossible for example to start a new radio station. 

Video Apps

The video lineup is very much less impressive, because many apps are optimized for tablet resolution and will not provide 1080p resolution. For example +Netflix resolution is dismal on the big screen, so we continue to watch Netflix using the native Netflix App on our Visio TV. +Amazon.com video is of course unavailable, too bad for them, as I would like to be able to rent movies on my tablet or Android TV. Looks like lost revenue for Amazon. 

Now to the ultimate #FAIL  on the Imito MX1: +YouTube  full screen is not available. Yes, you heard right: the actual main Google TV piece on the Imito MX1 doesn't work properly. You cannot watch Youtube video full screen 1080p because someone at Google had the not-so-brilliant idea to rely on screen rotation to get full screen, and decided to remove the full screen button.

A few of the TV apps I watch use the native video player when playing video, so this is the one bonus of having a stick. They work properly and provide a decent full screen video experience. However, virtually all of the TV apps are optimized for tablet and therefore none of them provide HD quality 1080p resolution.

So on the video front. the Imito MX1 is a complete failure. #FAIL  . Oh well. We watch most of our videos from the native Visio Internet TV Apps, so it's not a loss for us. The music and the internet browsing is a great addition to fill in for the missing apps on the Visio TV.

Bottom line: I love Android, but no one today writes apps for Android for big TVs, so you can kiss the whole 1080p HD experience goodbye for now. It's an early adopter market, and it's got a long, long way to go. Unfortunately, when it comes to media and entertainment, Apple and Yahoo are way ahead of Google. Android still is playing catch up. But they will eventually catch up, and when they do, Android will definitely be the platform of choice for HD TV.___

Differential Geometry References

Does anyone know of any good online PDF versions of good books on differential geometry for both general relativity and string theory? I used to have one but I seem to have misplaced it. I don't even want to begin to comprehend Lie Algebras before I can get a good handle on differentiable manifolds. I have Loomis' book on advanced calculus that includes calculus on manifolds, but it's not applied enough.
