Hacked Man

Rejected!

Not enough though.

Rejection Therapy challenge turned out to be easily the hardest thing I've done so far with Hacked Man. I've started up about five new good habits, learned a couple of brand new skills and even started to clean up the apartment a lot more, but hitting 30 rejections in 6 days was way too much.

Me, after spending just . . .

Singing Man

So, as the Rejection Therapy challenge seems to make me do silly things, I sang on video and put it on the Internet.

Daniel Love's Are You Dreaming?

Finished Daniel Love's Are You Dreaming? and it was very good. Much inspired. I was looking for a practical book that would have all the basic building blocks to start getting into Lucid Dreaming and Love's book delivered in bundles.

Memory hack: pegs

It seems to work!

I've been reading Are You Dreaming? and bumped into a pretty nifty and simple memory hack in it. Before this I've never been interested in memory hacks at all.

Meditations pt.2

Subtle, enjoyable, no enlightenment yet

Thoughts on meditation. I have some 12 sessions behind me now. No cosmic wisdoms have made themselves apparent, but it's a cool hobby, nonetheless.


I've been testing out different situations and using binaural beats and no beats with meditation and sadly I haven't really noticed any patterns yet. The one main . . .

Dreaming hacks

Dream journal and lucid dreaming

I've started multiple dream journals and at one point did a bunch of lucid dreaming. Both turned out the be pretty easy and pretty fun. They just were again something that I couldn't keep up.
