Soul searching, Joe Rogan, Flotation tanks, and The Borg. What do these things have in common? They are the results of a Google search.
A little bit of a soul search
As you may see, I am on a journey in life. Not sure where it will take me. I have a goal. That is the most important fact. You never know for sure what is going to happen in life. Facebook inundates me with inspirational quotes. So I know it is not just me that is struggling to find the answers to life’s questions. I always pick up ideas here and there. They give me a little fodder for my soul searching. Where exactly am I going with this?
All searches begin with Google
So you don’t know what a term is. Google to the rescue. Sometimes during those searches you can get a little off track. I was searching for “ What is a flot?”. Flotation tanks were in the search results. (Still not sure what a flot is exactly.) Flotation tanks are a type of isolation chamber filled with salt water. Here is a little example at The Chicago Stress Relief Center. They allow you to float easily. They say it allows the mind to think more freely. In theory it is due to the brain not having to process the input from your other senses.
Joe Rogan uses these type of chambers. He has written and has made videos on their use. He also smokes weed. The combination of the 2 should make quick work of getting to the next level within your mind.
I have to imagine what one of these chambers could do for me. Without this stress clouding my thoughts what could I accomplish?
Google’s Mind Meld Trick
I think Google was trying to tell me something. The researchers at Google may finally have devised an algorithm for reading your mind. I can picture their lab now. People connected to computers half-human half-cyborg. It is closer to fruition than one may think.
Harvard researchers have developed a cyborg like tissue. There have been advances in technology with electronic glasses. One of which is developed by none other than Google. They are being called quite basically Google Glass. Steve Mann’s EyeTap brings it a little further.
Can you tell me “The Borg” still seems far-fetched?
