Be Like a Bird in Life and You Will Find Life Exciting!

Be like a bird in life. They are humble in life. They just walk around and observe things. Birds mentality: “I don’t know anything so let’s just investigate everything!”.

This of course is the same concept as Focus and paying Attention as I have talked about in the past. But it’s a good reminder. You have a greater intelligence that is available inside your body. Usually with intelligence people get stuck on intellect intelligence. But that’s only the mind intelligence.

Then you have the body awareness intelligence. The part that knows how to make all food you eat into you. Ain’t that amazing? I saw a video how DNA was repairing itself it was a fascinating view! How amazing your body is it’s truly fascinating. When you just absorb the moment without thinking you let this intelligence into your life. It can do wonders.

The problem with the intellect is how it slice things up into smaller pieces all the time. Your intellect never gets satisfied. It always feels that it needs more data and information. More information in our culture is hyped up as intelligence. But most people just use it to brag or boast to sound smart. Especially these days when you can get information so easily by a quick google search. The true awareness intelligence in your body that’s the real intelligence. That works on a larger scale. You don’t need your intellect to be able to understand Life and Love.

What you do in life really doesn’t matter at all in the present moment. You can sit and observe your hand for 4 hours and same intelligence will work as if you look at a little piece of dust for same time. The important part is that you are aware and do the focused attention properly.

We take it for granted ah just a hand but in the awareness phase you realize the amazing machinery a hand is that you take for granted in your daily life. Let’s say you open a door, well you do it really perfect. You put something down you really put it down with awareness of it. In this way you will actually know what life is. It’s an acceptance for what is at the moment with no need to get somewhere else.

One of the biggest secrets in life that I have discovered when it comes to success is to interact and engage with people. Especially now in our future robot society. Nobody is doing deep caring or thinking about love.

It’s so much superficial stuff. So that deep real engagement and interaction becomes scarce and something that people really value! And now I actually mean that you go all in for it. And genuine actually listen and being aware of the other person without judging. Be present and in the moment. Because nobody is doing this anymore.

It’s very easy to gloss over this. But it’s real sharp. If you can’t care for 1 second what makes you think you will care in the larger perspective. Everything in life is tied together. The details in life is what matters and makes all the difference. If you deal with unconscious people then the challenge becomes to not get your ego to get triggered, it will force you to become more present to the moment. This will help them to become more present.

The more digital this world is becoming the more people will revolt and wanna get service and communicate with real people not a robot or a zombie human… Nobody talk to each other these days but everyone wear status clothes to impress others that they don’t know…

People are gonna get so tired at “perfect” things the “perfect photo/perfect vacation” blabla bla, people will crave for aliveness that is real and with passion, that shows flaws and vulnerability. That is rare and becomes scarce and valuable in a world striving towards “the perfect experience”.

UBTECH Has Created A Cool Robot Called Alpha 1S!

With technology constantly moving forward we are getting more and more robots coming out on the market. Of course this is nothing compared to the robots we will have in a few centuries but it’s still pretty cool! This is a cool humanoid robot called Alpha 1S.

You can control it via bluetooth with your smartphone iOS or Android. 16 servo joints, flexible like a human, 3D visual PC software to both create and control each action, easy-to-use interface, STM32-F103RDT6 processor, 7.4V 2200mAh battery and 3W mono speaker.

Alpha 1S also comes with good battery life a full charge can last you 60 minutes. That is way better than many drones out there that needs a recharge every 10-20 minutes. You can also share your 3D creations with other people!

The robot comes in blue, white and gray colour, and the charge time is also short. You can really see how flexible the robot is on the pictures.

I am super curious where this will go in the future when we starts to combine the flexible joints with real artificial intelligence, but it will probably take another 10 years at least before we start to see more interesting stuff happening on the AI front.

As we have been seeing now with Google and Tesla both have AI controlled cars on the roads. And eventually trucks will also be having AI controlled vehicles.

A large industry is of course the Taxi industry where Uber has taken over a lot of the market with amateur drivers. And eventually the amateur drivers will be replaced by robot drivers.

This major area of transporting stuff or people will all eventually be replaced by robots who make less mistakes. And eventually what will the jobs be for the humans when robots can do it all? That is a very good question it will be interesting to see. What do you think about the Alpha 1S?

Anet Has A Cool 3D Printer Called A8!

These days you can print cool stuff in your home! 3D printers used to be very expensive but because of competition the prices has gone down a ton! You can now get the A8 3D Printer DIY Kit for less price than a mid-range smartphone!

This 3D printer contains of many parts: LCD Display at the top, Z axis lead rod, X axis motor, Nozzle, Mainboard, Hot bed, Turbofan, Power supply, Y axis motor and Z axis motor.

The LCD display on A8 3D Printer is a 2004 LCD screen with 5 keys, with simple controls and you can pause at any time. It will give you stable print and high-precision visual experience. The stepmotor can work without interruption for 1000 hours. The power supply is a high-quality 180W, 110V-240V variant.

Some ideas of things you can create with this machine are toys for children, art and cultural objects, medical application and more. Come up with something fun to create!

I am super curious about the future with 3D printing. Will we be able to eventually print anything in the world? Including objects that needs hardware to work? Like actually building anything in the world? With the power of AI I think we will be able to get this done eventually within 20-50 years. But will it be available for the masses? Do you think A8 3D Printer is cool? I love it!

Of course a machine like that you would have to feed it all the materials needed to create hardware. Software is already available in the cloud or in hardware or on the internet so that you wouldn’t be able to print. But I think the future may become weird if people can create anything in their home. Will it be safe?

Or will it be restricted? The internet is a strange thing how it allows us all to communicate and share ideas faster. An AI will still be more intelligent than us when a proper AGI has been created. When an AI machine can improve itself then we know we have created something that truly will replace us!

Look at This Cool PlayStation VR Bundle!

In the last blog post I showed you an epic Oculus Rift bundle starter pack. Well there is also another VR pack that you can argue is even more insane. This pack comes with 8 VR discs! It’s called the PlayStation VR Deluxe Bundle!

First it comes packed with Sony’s latest console PlayStation 4 Pro, 1TB storage, VR headset, processor unit, VR connection cable, HDMI cable, USB cable, stereo headphones, AC power cord, AC adapter, VR demo disc, PlayStation Camera, Two PlayStation Move motion controllers and 8 different VR discs!

The games in this VR Deluxe Bundle package are: PSVR Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, PSVR EVE: Valkyrie, PSVR Battlezone, Batman: Arkham VR, PSVR DriveClub, RIGS Mechanized Combat League with VR support and Resident Evil 7: Bioshazard with VR support. I guess that’s 7 games and one VR demo disc!

Both the VR headset and the PlayStation Camera needs to get plugged into the PS4. The VR headset uses an OLED 1080p 5.7″ display running at 120 frames per second.

I really enjoy the creativity they have done with the PlayStation Move controllers. They have round balls on them at the top. It’s a different design to the design you get on HTC Vive controllers. I am curious which one that feels the best. I may buy the Sony VR headset because clearly VR is the future of gaming!

It will also be interesting to see if VR will become popular in other areas than just gaming. The problem these days is that VR headsets are pretty bulky and you need to set it up for some time before you can use it.

I’m curious if the time will come when it’s super easy and light weight to use. Kind of like Google Glass. We all know Google Glass failed for the moment. But maybe with VR advancement we can see some exciting new development in the future.

Microsoft is also trying with their HoloLens technology to create a mixed reality technology. It will be interesting to see the future in this niche! What do you think about this VR Deluxe PlayStation Bundle?

Some Deeper Insights Into Taking Action

Audio Version:

Taking action keeps taking you back into reality again and again. And you will bump into walls again. Walls of reality that gives you real helpful feedback. The walls will slowly bounce you back and forth but in a forward progress direction.

Not the result you want you actually want the feeling of doing progress. Taking that much action will give you lots of feedback. About what you need to work on. And you will also realise how connected everything is. Becoming more grounded in accurate sense of reality. And it will make you more humble for the journey.

Just like a lens on a camera you are removing the layers of delusion and comes closer to more accurate sense of reality by constantly shift the lens into sharper focus. Low level thinking paradigms and low level desires will be stripped away from your personality by going through pain.

The layers of delusion people get from not taking action scares people. People also get scared because they don’t actually have trained their action taking ability. Your brain will start to tell you lies if you go down the paths of delusion. You quickly need to correct and move into the right direction again. If you start believing your own lies you will build a foundation where more lies will be built on.

Where is reality going in the future? This is a good question because it does seem like we are moving into a more robotic world. With Virtual Reality headset’s like HTC Vive that now can simulate a world in your home that feels like real life. By taking advantage of your senses you can generate amazing things. But there is also a risk here that it can be used to manipulate reality more. You can also argue that we are already in a simulation of the world. Elon Musk said that was a high possibility.

After I tried out the HTC Vive I am getting more confident that people will be using “reality tweak” tools more in the future. We already see it happening with how much people are addicted to their phones. They can’t live without them! They have almost become a part of our bodies!

Will reality not matter anymore? If people can just live their whole life in their homes? It does seem in a new world like this that introverted people would benefit more than extroverted. Because it will create a world where people more communicate not in fast ways but in deeper ways away from each other. So they have more time to develop elegant ideas before they release them out into the universe. There is a great personality test out there if you wanna find out if you are Introvert or Extrovert more. Called the Myers Briggs test.

Taking action has a way to throw you into the present moment when you take action with consciousness. You are actually aware of what you are doing because you do it with great attention. Which makes you forget about thoughts and emotions. Which actually feels really good. Because most of the time our thoughts puts us into a weird loop that doesn’t get us anywhere. Usually the only thing we need to do to become awake again is that conscious action taking.

There is a great little framework you can use by author Dr. Stephen R. Covey from the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change which is very simple to use and gives you a quick view of how it can guide you with being at the center of your life. Here is a quick quote from the book:

There are of course other ways you can do this and that is by just focus on sit still and be conscious. That will also put you into a mode where eventually you wanna go up and do stuff. Instead of just being still and passive. Many times we think that thoughts = being productive. But many time’s that’s not the case. Many times we would be way more effective by just starting the task. That is also the first habit in Coveys book: Be Proactive.

Why should you take action you may wonder when you can already get by just fine by relaxing? Well you should take action because we live in a time of intense changes. And in these times if you don’t become intelligent then it will be very easy to fall behind. Because earlier we only had competition that was close to us. Now in the world we live in global competition. Which means it will be even harder to get by if you are passive.

Make everything your own in life. You must strive towards ownership. When it’s your own you work harder and from a position of power. Take the leap away from safety. We are apes designed to be out in the wild. Living day to day! Remember. People are always trying to trap you in society. To play their games. This is a great time to invest in the internet because many people don’t take advantage of the insane opportunity that exists today. So you can really exploit it by working smart. Everyone wants to outsource all work to robots and cheap workers. You can exploit this by working with heart and soul. People will detect a true spirit person above robots and cheap workers. Why people don’t work hard is because the limited position they are in. Work to become an owner.

There is a great book about how the internet is changing our brains and how it changes action taking in this world which is moving at a faster rate. The book is by Nicholas Carr he wrote the book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains. Which has many interesting information about how these constant new online links changes our brains. Here is a great quote from the book:

Basically what this means is with the internet there is no limit on who you can contact. So if you are creative you can build new business connections super fast. Just by contacting and engaging with more people and provide help for common problems. Wanna find a list of problems people have? Go to Quora.

Internet is a great place to both take action and to become an owner. Right now to start a website is very cheap. But it’s yours. You own it. And it’s extremely valuable when you want to get content out there into the world.

The problem I see with many people is they do take action but they are building their work on someone else service. Which just means you are selling yourself cheap. Also remember that when you are more the owner over your work then you will work harder and with more pride. Which will end up in better results. And you feel more in control and it will make you be in a responsible role.

What happens with these other services is it starts out great but slowly you will realise your room to move around and have control over your work is becoming more limited. That’s when it’s time to break free.

Your time is valuable so I recommend you set up rules for when you use social media or the internet. For example I have disabled notifications on my phone. And only open up stuff after I have created new content. So I’m not just a consumer. Thanks for reading!

Adrian
