The Story Behind 'This Is Water,' the Inspiring Video People Can't Stop Watching

The Story Behind 'This Is Water,' the Inspiring Video People Can't Stop Watching | Lived Time | Scoop.it
It’s been viewed a million times since last night alone and has single-handedly resurrected the voice of troubled literary genius David Foster Wallace, bringing his words to a global audience that might not even recognize his name.
Dr M Funes's insight:

 From the makers of the film The Glossary: "In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn't become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we've ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.

 

We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie)."

 

 

The film talks about our default settings and how hard it is to change them. We need to commit to changing habits that are guided by the time as money conceptual metaphor. A must see.

Time Reborn

Time Reborn | Lived Time | Scoop.it

"To think like this, Smolin claims, is to forget, or to deny, that the objects of mathematics – numbers, curves etc – do not exist, whereas physics concerns itself with what does exist, and, in reality, in the domain of things that do exist, time is inescapable. So, he insists: "Useful as mathematics has turned out to be, the postulation of timeless mathematical laws is never completely innocent, for it always carries a trace of the metaphysical fantasy of transcendence from our earthly world." He thus presents us with a choice: "Either the world is in essence mathematical or it lives in time."

The Power of Concentration

The Power of Concentration | Lived Time | Scoop.it

MEDITATION and mindfulness: the words conjure images of yoga retreats and Buddhist monks. But perhaps they should evoke a very different picture: a man in a deerstalker, puffing away at a curved pipe, Mr. Sherlock Holmes himself. The world’s greatest fictional detective is someone who knows the value of concentration, of “throwing his brain out of action,” as Dr. Watson puts it. He is the quintessential unitasker in a multitasking world.

Mindfulness Neuroscience

Mindfulness Neuroscience | Lived Time | Scoop.it

Mindfulness neuroscience is a new, interdisciplinary field of mindfulness practice and neuroscientific research; it applies neuroimaging techniques, physiological measures and behavioral tests to explore the underlying mechanisms of different types, stages and states of mindfulness practice over the lifespan. Mindfulness-based meditation (MBM) or mindfulness-based intervention (MBI) has been a hot topic in psychology, neuroscience, health care and education in recent years (Chiesa and Serretti, 2010; Holzel et al., 2011), and publications have been rapidly growing from only 28 in 2001 to 397 papers listed in ISI during 2011. Many studies indicate the positive effects of MBM or MBI and researchers explore the mechanisms (Lutz et al., 2008;Tang and Posner, 2009; Chiesa and Serretti, 2010; Holzel et al., 2011; Tang et al., 2012a). However, the mechanisms of mindfulness practice are still poorly understood.

Dr M Funes's insight:

For those of you who need evidence and research to motivate you to regain a healthy sense of time.

Time Is Not Money, and Cash Doesn’t Talk

Time Is Not Money, and Cash Doesn’t Talk | Lived Time | Scoop.it

The Cree Indian proverb “When the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught, we will realize that we cannot eat money” provides a wiser perspective on the grim reality that widespread greed is creating for us.

Cleaning Up Your Digital Life: The Social Media Cleanse

Cleaning Up Your Digital Life: The Social Media Cleanse | Lived Time | Scoop.it

How much influence on your life do you think you control? Consider the potentially infinite influences: radio, television, ads, internet ads, newspapers, blogs, social media, ad nauseam. Not to mention actual people in your life with influence over you (negative or otherwise). It’s limitless. If there are so many, why do most people not control what is within their power to control?

Dr M Funes's insight:

It is not always about psycholgical patterns! sometimes a practical day cleansing your digital life may give you more lived time

The more you do, The what you get?

The more you do, The what you get? | Lived Time | Scoop.it

As we begin to realize that many societal and health problems cannot be solved through medication or attention-training alone, it becomes clear that techniques to increase emotional function and well-being are crucial for future development.  I am reminded of a quote overheard at the Mind & Life Summer Research Institute and attributed to the Dalai Lama. Supposedly when asked about their goal of developing meditation programs in the west, HHDL replied that, what was truly needed in the West was not “cognitive training, as (those in the west) are already too clever. What is needed rather is emotion training, to cultivate a sense of responsibility and compassion”. When we consider falling rates of empathy in medical practitioners and the link to health outcome, I think we do need to explore the role of emotional and embodied skills in supporting a wide-array of functions in cognition and well-being.

Dr M Funes's insight:

if you do not want to read the detail, just skip to the inconclusive conclusion!

Slow Money pushes for big results

Slow Money pushes for big results | Lived Time | Scoop.it

When the Slow Food idea began back in 1986 in Italy, it was simply another innovative concept regarding sustainable agriculture. But as its founder, Carlo Petrini, continued to build a following and expound on the potential benefits of stopping the spread of fast food, the concept caught fire and turned from a concept into a reality

Dr M Funes's insight:

An interesting book about how to live as if nature mattered that has led to national gatherings: 'Tasch's book, Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered, drew from the ideas set forth by Petrini and repositioned them in a financial and economic sense. The idea? To try and determine the best way for Slow Food and Slow Money to come together.'

Mindfulness: Observing Without Questioning

Mindfulness: Observing Without Questioning | Lived Time | Scoop.it

"An unfortunate aspect of our mental life is how unscientific it is. When we have an intuition – an idea about how the world works and how we behave in it – we act like the amateur scientist; we don’t investigate opposing ideas but automatically seek out confirming evidence. We’re elaborate story weavers, and we selfishly cast ourselves as the infallible protagonist who lives in a world of idiots. To paraphrase the satirical cartoonist Tim Krieder, we spend most of our mental lives winning imaginary arguments that are never actually going to take place. In other words, we exist in an epistemic matrix with a willful prescription to the blue pill."

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman – review

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman – review | Lived Time | Scoop.it

An outstandingly clear and precise study of the 'dual-process' model of the brain and our embedded self-delusions"

Dr M Funes's insight:

We are not as smart as we think we are, and are not concious of that part of our self that is the "secret author of many of the choices and judgments you make". What you call 'I' is only half the story - you may think it is the lead actor of the play but you would be wrong to think this. Lived time can be found when we learn to trust that there is more to 'I' than deliberate effortful thinking.

Events in the future seem closer than those in the past

Events in the future seem closer than those in the past | Lived Time | Scoop.it

We say that time flies, it marches on, it flows like a river — our descriptions of time are closely linked to our experiences of moving through space.

Dr M Funes's insight:

The structuring metaphors we use to make sense of time being studied by scientists and starting to show that how we experience our body in space is how we structure the abstract notion of time. Might this research help us see that we have the capacity to transform how we experience time and hence stop being slaves to the clock?
