It takes a lot of work to compile this and I will publish a new list and circle with corrections.Also please note that precise rankings are meaningless due to the standard error of measurement involved in Klout scores. Many thanks to +CircleCount for making this job considerably easier.I also want to thank +Amanda Blain for all her suggestions over the various months on how to improve this list.As always, I welcome your suggestions and corrections.Please let me know of any corrections for the final list to be published before the end of the year.If I missed you, please let me know. Upcoming circle – please let me know if you want to be included.Active on Google plus and Twitter – provide your twitter id   Social Media MadnessThere are other social networks out there besides Google plus.  While Google Plus is certainly my favourite, there are uses for the other ones.Include your twitter id in the comments to be included in a future circle of twitter users on Google plus.Tweet me @euromaestro to be included on a twitter list of Google plus users. Follow me on :twitter :  https://twitter.com/euromaestrofacebook : 2012-12-16 23:54:20209641039

It provides formatted and easily understandable data analysis in graphical form.  I've been using to search certain keywords and graphically see the connections between posts and users on that topic in Google Plus.  This looks very promising.  It's currently in limited beta.http://nod3x.com/  =========================================================+Trey Ratcliff and +Tom Anderson were recently in Paris for a photowalk. Both are as great in person as they are online.  In addition to being great photographers, both are very cool. If you are interested in photography, you definitely want to take Trey's workshop.  I've written before about Trey's iOS app called +Stuck On Earth.  This is the ultimate guide for photographers, explorers and daydreamers.  A little bird has told me that there will be a new version soon.Get Stuck on Earth now while it is still a free app !https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stuck-on-earth/id478313722?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 =========================================================I flew to London this week2012-11-15 23:48:04250621243

What I Think About When I Meditate

I am often asked what I think about when I meditate. Many people think meditation is about having no ideas or no thoughts at all. This is impossible. Even monks with tens of thousands of hours of meditation have thoughts coming, just slower and fewer.

My experience after more than a year of meditating for about an hour a day (including a ten-day retreat where I sat for ten hours a day) is that my brain gets much slower when I meditate. I still get many ideas but it doesn't feel like a crazy monkey getting bombarded with ideas you get at the beginning. It's like my whole body metabolism slows down. I could not sit still for more than fifteen minutes a year ago. Now I sit for an hour and I have no pain; it feels like ten minutes. I breathe very slowly and manage not to move a hair for that entire hour. My brain does the same -- it's slow... more »

Remembering what I think about when I meditate
I have started taking notes after my meditation sessions after a very interesting conversation with +Nichol Bradford who reminded me +Kenneth Folk  method of "noting".
I had one session with Kenneth where he encourages saying aloud what you're thinking about and what you are feeling during meditation. Like "hitching" or "being sad" or "thinking about my kid". Kenneth even encourages you to do this in a group, everyone will say one feeling or thought they have one after each other. I have not really embraced this as I mostly meditate alone.
Nichol was telling me that it's really good for the brain if you actually force yourself at the end (or during!) a session to say what you thought about or try to remember it. I tried today by taking notes. I surprised myself by remembering about 20 ideas thatw... more »

Nichol was telling me that it's really good for the brain if you actually force yourself at the end (or during!) a session to say what you thought about or try to remember it. I tried today by taking notes. I surprised myself by remembering about 20 ideas that were consistently in my mind, some showed up once, some showed up a few times, the challenging ones as I described here https://medium.com/…/what-i-think-about-when-i-meditate-352…. I really liked the exercice and will try to write down what I thought about after each session even though it's a significant effort.
I was suggesting an idea to +Remo Uherek  who is behind ZenFriend. How about adding voice recognition to ZenFriend using for example the Google Voice engine. Say I meditate for an hour, each time I have an idea I just say it aloud, eyes closed. The app turns it into text and at then at the end of the session I can see everything I thought about written down. Then the app could generate clouds of my ideas and show me the "most popular ones" in the movie playing in my brain. I could see them evolve month after month, year after year. I would love that. Just a thought Remo!___

Oh, great! Now we've got biodegradable drones!

Researchers at NASA's Ames Research Center in California have created a biodegradable drone: 

http://youtu.be/0R_JsnXN3NI?t=33m13s

The bio-drone prototype is made of a fungus called mycelium. and its covered cellulose sheets grown in the lab using bacteria. The electronic circuits were printed in silver nanoparticle ink. 

The propellers and battery are pretty standard, and won't biodegrade.

The team is working on the creation of sensors using e Coli bacteria.

I breathe very slowly and manage not to move a hair for that entire hour. My brain does the same -- it's slow and gets many fewer ideas.

I use the technique I learned during the Vipassana retreat. I observe my body sensations "from the top of the head to the feet, scanning the entire body permanently." Sensations are broad and generalized at the beginning, like itching or pain. The more you do it the more you feel delicate, subtle sensations such as warm or cold air touching your skin in areas of your body you did not even think could make you feel anything.

Each time an idea shows up in your brain, observe it like a cloud going through the sky but don't stay in it -- just let it go. With some training it works really well and you can just stay a few seconds on an incoming idea then go back to observing your body sensations which according to scientific research is good for your brain.

Here is a typology of my thoughts.

1. Persistent thoughts
Those are the tough ones. They come back all the time. It can be guilt you feel about something and you had it for years. It can be your business not doing great and your brain can't help but focus on it. It could be something about your children's education that you can't solve easily and is here to stay for years.

2. The present
I often observe my brain caught in the present. Thinking about dinner tonight. An annoying noise I can hear. A call I need to make. Those thoughts don't matter at all and you know they are going to disappear in a few hours or days yet they are still here and "catch you" even though you know it is futile to think them.

3. Clarity on complex decisions
You have to make decisions constantly in your life. Some decisions are really tough. You don't know what to do. Even if you observe your sensations and try not to focus on anything, decision thoughts keep coming back because your brain wants to resolve the problem. I discovered during my ten day retreat that as those decision thoughts kept coming back each time they were a little different. Like if there was a new context or I was seeing the problem from a different angle. As I meditate I feel I'm doing a 360 of major problems in my mind. There is a possibility it stops and meditation brings clarity. Your brain brings you every possible angle of a decision until it stops because it feels like you covered it all. Then the decision becomes obvious and that thought stops showing up. And you feel amazing.

4. Totally new ideas
Today as I meditated I got a great idea. It doesn't happen during each meditation but when it does it's a "wow". It's the most obvious benefit of meditation. Your mind gets so calm and clear that ideas you would likely not have otherwise emerge. It could be a business idea or a book idea. It could be something you want to do. It could be understanding a conversation in a way you had not seen before. It's awesome.

Each time after a few seconds I go back to my body scan and my sensations. I try to look at my brain as a scientist observing something and try to notice patterns. As you get more aware of how your brain works you can try to change it. I try to put persistent ideas or disturbing ideas in the context of my whole life. Will this matter in 10 years? Will it change anything significant in my life? Generally the answer is no and it makes those thoughts less persistent. It's exactly how you train your brain to ignore itching sensations of pain going through your body as you meditate for an hour. As you focus on the pain it quickly diminishes or goes away -- it takes some training though. It's the same with those thoughts you want to control or get rid of.

Don't try not to have ideas when you meditate, on the contrary welcome them and let them go. If they come back it's ok; your brain is processing them and showing you a different point of view. At one point it will stop. And then you have that rare, blissful moment of peace.

This LinkedIn Influencer story made me think about wealth accumulation being one of the challenges of our times.
Some get rich and richer and it’s never enough. I know a ton of rich people who aren’t happy at all, in fact they got less happy as they got rich.

I know some friends or followers here will go after me for saying that and remind me that they would like to be in that case and are suffering because they struggle financially, that’s a total valid point and I agree.

The point here is that yes, becoming financially independent (as in, you don’t have to work if you don’t want to) +really+ changes your life. Even though for some people event that makes them unhappy, they get lost. But pass that point and more wealth makes so many people I know more unhappy because they start needing more things. Always. That watch, that jewelry, that house, yacht… It is neverending.

That watch, that jewelry, that house, yacht… It is never ending.

My 10 day meditation Vipassana retreat taught me that this is one of the top factors of unhappiness. You keep craving all your life. I lived like a monk for ten days, I was allowed to have nothing with me except a few clothes, was given simple food, provided a bed in a shared ten people dorm for free. I discovered I needed nothing material to be happy.

And even though I would say I am not totally cured from that flaw, I am much better. I live with less, a lot less. And I feel better.

Yeah I love my Tesla, that’s a good example. It provides me with intense pleasure daily and I am proud to support a new industry. If successful entrepreneurs don’t buy Teslas at a high price point to help Tesla succeed so they can then produce a mainstream very accessible version most people can buy, who will?

I used to collect expensive watches (okay not THAT expensive, not crazy either), I have like 10 of them I have not seen for years, I mostly don’t wear a watch at all and don’t care at all about them. I am giving them to my sons when they turn 18 (then tell them they should not crave!). You might see me with one, rarely, but I don’t care anymore at all.

Yeah I’m a pilot and love it. I have been flying for about 15 years. I would rarely ride in the back of a private plane what I like is flying the plane and the adventure and thrill that comes with it. Pushing the throttles on a runway and getting your butt kicked until the thing flies and I’m flying it by myself no copilot is one of the most intense pleasure I have been fortunate to being able to live. I don’t care much about the thing that flies, I care about being able to push the throttle and take off by myself.

I actually started flying a paraglide, it’s entirely free to fly after you bought the big kite (a few thousand dollars, the cheapest thing you can fly yourself in). But yeah, I pilot different planes now and then, I am not ashamed of it, otherwise what’s the point of not using what you earned. I have not stolen it to anyone, I sold a few businesses. Paid a ton of tax in France and the US and that’s okay. Yeah it’s expensive. Okay fine. Yeah I could donate it itself, I know. Well I’m not a monk.

I care about experiences, adventures, lifelong moments shared with family and or friends, not things. Moments to live deeply.

I also started donating and supporting non-profits, this is new to me. The culture in Europe is more that Government takes care of most things and you pay a ton of tax so they should take care of it and I have to admit France takes very good care of its people compared to the US, health being the top example, just pay attention to how many homeless people in SF at night… So it’s new to me and I enjoy it. I’m trying to help, too, not just give.

Anyways, more on that topic later but things and possessions don’t matter much, you can’t take them with you when you die anyway.___
