Death Becomes Him

Death Becomes Him | The Dream Of A Shadow | Scoop.it
Philip Roth confronts age and beauty,
and turns—well, not exactly
sentimental, but surprisingly warm.
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Everyman takes its title from a medieval morality play, a nasty little allegory of what happens when the party ends. Called by Death, the central character is abandoned by his “false friends”—friends, family, wealth—and leans instead on Good Deeds, Strength, Beauty, Intelligence, and Knowledge. By play’s end, he is alone: All but Good Deeds have left him, and he must confront his grave with Christian humility. The world he has left behind is “drowned in synne,” as God complains in the play’s prologue, overflowing with “pryde coueteyse wrathe and lechery.”

Jan Bergmans's insight:

In this performance three main elements come together: the job of the road paver, dance and visual art. Wouter Klein Velderman reveals himself as an ally in de Châtel's research, always interested in what happens in the society, in raw truth, dance and sculptural elements. Thus, the connection between dance and visual arts was born. The repetitive movements of the road pavers, the beauty that arises by their actions, and the large quantities of paving stones are the starting point for the performance ÚT (OET). The materials Wouter Klein Velderman uses for his sculptures and installations often come from the industrial production, like metal, PVC fabric or wood. He treats these rough and impersonal materials with great care and attention: each sculpture arises in strong contrast with their subject, like a pile of stones, a sea-container or a factory site.

Jan Bergmans's insight:

The end of World War II in Europe signaled the end of the road for chauffeur Kay Summersby's three-year relationship with her boss, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Her face was censored from the official photo taken by Technical Sgt. Al Meserlin, Ike's personal photographer, on that May morning in 1945 when the Germans surrendered at the red-brick schoolhouse in Reims, France.

In a print of the original picture, which Meserlin has kept in his scrapbook for 50 years, Summersby is in the background as Eisenhower holds aloft, in a V-for-victory gesture, the two pens used by the high-ranking German officers to sign the surrender.

Meserlin, now living in Sea Girt, N.J., has no idea why the photo was altered after he shipped off his film to the Army Pictorial Service laboratory in Paris. "All our stuff went through the wartime censors," he said. "Usually they just cropped out identifying terrain details so as not to reveal Eisenhower's whereabouts, like when he went to Bastogne."

When Eisenhower left Europe for a Pentagon assignment some months later, Summersby's name was dropped from the travel orders of SHAEF (Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force) staffers joining him. She was the only member of what he fondly called his "immediate wartime family" to be left behind.

She was devastated, as she recorded in a bittersweet autobiography, "Past Forgetting: My Love Affair With Dwight D. Eisenhower," written after Eisenhower's death and during her final illness. It depicted a passionate but unconsummated love affair that consisted mostly of "stolen kisses" along a woodland path or aboard "a darkened plane to Cairo."

She wrote of holding hands, sitting before the fire in his quarters listening to favorite records while sharing cocktails for two, "almost telepathic" bridge partners, golfing together, horseback riding in the countryside or the desert, romping with "Telek," the coal-black Scotch terrier he bought for her.

Eisenhower mentions her only once in his diary, "Crusade in Europe," just a name on a list of aides.

Kathleen McCarthy Summersby, a perky, coquettish Irish divorcee and former fashion model for the House of Worth in Paris, was 33 when as a civilian volunteer with the British Motor Transport Corps she was assigned to drive Eisenhower around London. He was 20 years older.

One of her earlier assignments was driving an ambulance in the heavily blitzed East End dock area, picking up bodies and delivering them to the morgue. Twice she had to drive around all night searching for a morgue that had room for more corpses.

Jan Bergmans's insight:
Think Like a Freak

Out on May 12, 2014!

Levitt and Dubner take us inside their thought process and teach us all to think a bit more productively, more creatively, more rationally – to think, that is, like a Freak. They offer a blueprint for an entirely new way to solve problems, whether your interest lies in minor lifehacks or major global reforms. As always, no topic is off-limits. They range from business to philanthropy to sports to politics, all with the goal of retraining your brain. Along the way, you’ll learn the secrets of a Japanese hot-dog-eating champion, the reason an Australian doctor swallowed a batch of dangerous bacteria, and why Nigerian e-mail scammers make a point of saying they’re from Nigeria. Levitt and Dubner plainly see the world like no one else. Now you can too. Never before have such revolutionary thinkers been so revealing – and so much fun to read. Read More.

Do our thoughts exist in the physical world ? - Unexplained Mysteries

Do our thoughts exist in the physical world ? - Unexplained Mysteries | The Dream Of A Shadow | Scoop.it
Philosophers have pondered for thousands of years over the very nature of human consciousness.
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Are memories and thoughts simply electrical impulses within the brain or are we more than that ? Could we be a combination of the spiritual and the physical ? Is the human body simply an interface between one world and another ?

Mathematics and astronomy professor Bernard Carr believes that our thoughts may exist in another dimension of which we have no conscious perception or awareness.

"The only non-physical entities in the universe of which we have any experience are mental ones, and the existence of paranormal phenomena suggests that mental entities have to exist in some sort of space," he wrote.

Other hypotheses include the concept that our thoughts may transcend time itself, the idea that thought may exist within the physical space between particles and even the possibility that the minds of everyone on Earth could eventually combine to form a single enveloping network in which our collective consciousnesses could exist.

Miso Soup (With Hondashi) recipe

Miso Soup (With Hondashi) recipe | The Dream Of A Shadow | Scoop.it
Sometimes you don't think about miso soup as an appetizer until dinner is almost on the table. Well, that's my life, anyway. Miso soup is a great accompaniment for any Asian fare, especially dishes...
Jan Bergmans's insight:

* But really — does anyone else feel that spreading sensation after you swallow that first spoonful? It’s like dragon’s fire (albeit, less scalding) slowly flames down your throat in waves. It hits your stomach and spreads around its walls in a beautiful hug, and soon it’s coursing through your veins and your limbs. OK, not exactly an ideal experience in summer, but you’d be surprised how many temperature-hot/spicy-hot foods Asian cultures love to eat in hot weather.

The point: You still have time to make a few bowls of miso soup, if you have hondashi powder on hand. I’ve decided to document an official recipe for the miso soup I make with hondashi and white miso paste. Feel free to add or subtract whatever other garnishes you like — there is no exact science here.

10.01.2009 - Ethiopian desert yields oldest hominid skeleton | The Dream Of A Shadow | Scoop.it
News from UC Berkeley
Jan Bergmans's insight:

"This is the oldest hominid skeleton on Earth," said Tim White, University of California, Berkeley, professor of integrative biology and one of the co-directors of the Middle Awash Project, a team of 70 scientists that reconstructed the skeleton and other fossils found with it. "This is the most detailed snapshot we have of one of the earliest hominids and of what Africa was like 4.4 million years ago."

White and the team will publish the results of their analysis in 11 papers in the Oct. 2 issue of the journal Science, which has Ardi on the cover. They announced their findings at press conferences held simultaneously today in Washington, D.C., and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Jan Bergmans's insight:

Someone asked me, “How can I really be responsible for my life?” I asked her, “Do you know who you are?” Not knowing, how can you be responsible for your life? The problem is that what our life actually is and our so-called intellectual understanding of what it is are often two different things. Most of the time we are deceiving ourselves, whether we know it or not. Please be careful about this. Shakyamuni Buddha himself said, “Be a torch for your life.” In other words, depend on yourself and be responsible for yourself, not as what you think you are but rather you as the dharma. This is very important. You cannot depend on your complaints, on your greed, anger, and ignorance.

So close the gap between Yourself and yourself. Carry this wisdom into your daily life and let your life continue in this way. When you close the gap, that is the best way to take care of your family, of your community, of your life. Then your life becomes delightful, not only for yourself but for the people around you as well.

Lost Cat: An Illustrated Meditation on Love, Loss, and What It Means To Be Human

Lost Cat: An Illustrated Meditation on Love, Loss, and What It Means To Be Human | The Dream Of A Shadow | Scoop.it
A library of cross-disciplinary interestingness and combinatorial creativity
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology (public library) by firefighter-turned-writer Caroline Paul and illustrator extraordinaire Wendy MacNaughton, she of many wonderful collaborations — a tender, imaginative memoir infused with equal parts humor and humanity. (You might recall a subtle teaser for this gem in Wendy’s wonderful recent illustration of Gay Talese’s taxonomy of cats.) Though “about” a cat, this heartwarming and heartbreaking tale is really about what it means to be human — about the osmosis of hollowing loneliness and profound attachment, the oscillation between boundless affection and paralyzing fear of abandonment, the unfair promise of loss implicit to every possibility of love.

Cancer child's secret message on back of her mirror found by dad after she died

Athena, 12, wrote: 'Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story'
Jan Bergmans's insight:

espite these traumas, Athena’s note showed an unshakably positive outlook on life.

She wrote: “Happiness depends upon ourselves.

“Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story.

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”

Dean, 33, said: “It was a stand-up mirror in her room, and it was always leaned up against the wall so we never saw behind it.

“She never mentioned it, but it’s the kind of thing she’d do.

“She was a very spiritual person. She’d go on about stuff that I could never understand - she was so clever.

The Alchemy of Love
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Hallo, beste Stage 32-friend ,

Via dit fantastische platform ben ik op zoek naar mensen die iets zien in de verfilming van het boek ‘De Alchemie van de Liefde’. Het is een waar gebeurd verhaal over bankprocessen, faillissementen, ouderverstoting (ouders die hun kinderen niet meer zien), racisme, bedreiging, manipulatie en andere duistere scenario’s. Mohammed en ik, Chantal, kozen er als schrijvers van het boek doelbewust voor om met deze verhalen niet zomaar naar de pers te stappen. Het was belangrijker om met een Positieve boodschap naar buiten te komen, een boodschap van Vrede, Harmonie en Liefde. En meteen kwamen we bij de vraag: ‘Wie zijn wij eigenlijk?’ En wat zorgt er eigenlijk voor dat sommigen zover verwijderd geraken van hun Liefdevolle kern? Dit bracht ons dan bij het punt dat er véél meer is dan wij met onze zintuigen kunnen waarnemen. Meteen zorgde dit voor verschillende sciencefictionelementen in het boek. Maar is veel niet gewoon ‘normaal’ in plaats van ‘paranormaal’?

Ascension Whispers Birth

The morning of October 5, 2012 I awoke with the Ascension Whispers Song of Intent playing in my head. The song; “Make All Our Dreams Come True”. It was quite an unusual shock to me because it was as if there was a recording inside of my head that kept playing the song over and over. I sat and listened to it for at least fifteen minutes before it stopped and when it stopped, the song had reached its end point again.

Diet of worms for Chinese astronauts?

Diet of worms for Chinese astronauts? | The Dream Of A Shadow | Scoop.it
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Three researchers have been eating worms for 105 days, while living in a sealed laboratory in Beijing, to test whether astronauts could use them as their main source of protein.

The volunteers fattened up the worms on plants grown inside the Moon Palace One biosphere at the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the South China Morning Post reports. They had various preparations for eating the worms - using a bean sauce and other seasonings to make the dish as appealing as possible.

The idea of feeding protein-rich mealworms to astronauts was apparently raised as early as 2009, but scientists at western space agencies worried they would be unappetising and lower astronaut morale. But researcher Hu Dawei says that throughout the current experiment the volunteers seemed "healthy and happy" on their worm diet. The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization has said edible insects could make a "promising alternative" to traditional protein sources.

"It did take them some time to adapt," Hu adds. "None of them had ever tried them as food before. Worms may look disgusting at first glance, but they are actually the cleanest and healthiest food source." But one restaurant owner is more sceptical, saying: "Worms on the menu might put off some people who dreamed of being an astronaut."

The experiment's results may be reviewed by China's space authorities in the planning of future manned missions. China put its first man into space in 2003, and has plans to launch a space station by 2023.

Jan Bergmans's insight:

“He won’t let me go” I have heard this so many times from women who come to me for advice. In the midst of battling the reasons whether they should stay in their relationship or if it is time to walk away, they find comfort in believing that the man must love them because he refuses to bow out peacefully. Granted there are many situations that the man is truly in love with the woman, but do not always be fooled.

A lot of times what is really happening is that you’re just too damn convenient. You are too beneficial to this man for him to dare let you walk away. We all see women everyday who basically are the mothers to the men they are with. They do it all and sexual benefits are included. They take care of everything, carry the financial burden, and allow the man to get away with way too much. He can cheat on her and disrespect her. He can break her mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Yet because he insists that he wants to be with you when you’re ready to leave you actually start to buy into the “he won’t let me go, so he must love me” perception. If he really loved you he would not do half the things I just listed. He would not wait until you’re ready to leave to finally step up his game (he will step it up long enough to reel you back in but then it is back to the same old negative behavior). If he actually loved you then his heart would weigh heavy on him when he knowingly and continuously brings you stress, unhappiness, and hurt. A man who loves his woman cannot continuously watch his woman in pain and be OK with it
