Good at:Poetry/Swords
Hates:Rain/Ropes
Likes:Compass/Umbrella
Ok this is a knife to all of us (sad story)
First, since that devs post thos charater date in weibo so i just renew the pin in my page (but idk why it like.. Didn't WORK?)you guys can go see what i have write last year ໒(⊙ᴗ⊙)७✎▤ (Eli one i gonna redo again)
Second, let me introduce what is the date of July 15th in lunar calendar.
Usually in July 15 is Ghost Festival, also call Hungry Ghost Festival, Zhongyuan jie (中元节),Gui jie (鬼节),yulan Festival(盂兰盆节)is a traditional Buddhist and Taoist festival held in certain East Asian countries. According to the Chinese calendar (a lunisolar calendar), the Ghost Festival is on the 15th night of the seventh month (14th in parts of southern China).
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_Festival
According In folklore, This day will "鬼门开,万魂出,与家人朋友团聚"The Ghost Door Opens, Many ghost will come out to met their friend and family. And Usually wu chang can have a day of holiday (If their in china Usually their can met again btw since their can't met again.. )
And ehh.. Bi An good at poetry, Wu Jiu Interested in Calligraphy, actually in the past in china people like poets would like writing a poem with a good Calligraphy;and what Bi An like painting (actually it call ink-wash painting), Wu Jiu like Swords, it also as a correspond, because in the ink-wash painting there a section call Figure painting. Kinda like the actual painting we doing (and rip me i just know how to draw plants)and Far East Wind is one of the type in this section
And more, Bi An hate rain is because Wu Jiu drowned to death from Nan Tai bridge;and Wu Jiu hate the ropes, is because Bi An using the rope to suicide by hanging. What the things that these two people hate is actually what the cause of between to death. And it the same for what their Interested.
First let see the umbrella that Wu Jiu like, and here mean that the umbrella in the game, is actually the umbrella that he like (surprise or not)
According to devs data:
谢必安要范无咎在桥下稍待躲雨,自己回家拿伞。岂料谢必安走后,大雨倾盆,河水暴涨,范不愿失约,死守桥下。不久谢取伞赶回,只见河水没过桥面,范无咎已不知所踪。谢必安痛不欲生,从此只着白衣,无论晴雨都背着当日黑伞,神色癫狂,最终自益于南台桥下。而那把见证两人兄弟情谊的黑伞,却在不久后被一商贾买下,不知去向。
Xie Bian wanted Fan Wujiu to temporarily take shelter from the rain under the bridge, while he himself went back home to get an umbrella. Unexpectedly, after Xie had left, there was a heavy downpour, and the river flooded. Fan did not want to break his promise with Xie, and died under the bridge. Not long after, Xie brought an umbrella and came back, only to see the river level rise until the surface of the bridge, with Fan being nowhere to be found. Xie grieved, and since then only wore a white shirt. Regardless of rain or shine, he brought along a black umbrella. He appeared to have gone mad, and eventually killed himself under Nantai bridge. Soon after, the black umbrella that witnessed the brotherhood from both was bought by a merchant, its whereabouts unknown.
This umbrella is under Bi An's Memories and the brotherhood, and the story was also because of Xie Bi An's to get an umbrella.So Wu Jiu's guilty has the opportunity to take all the guilt.And last, Bi An had to wear a white clothes black umbrella and he liked The thing is compass, and it can extend to a term. The official posters show that the compass here is in order to avoid the audit, it is actually referring to the compass on the poster.
That is Taoist's fengshui compass also call ancient chinese compass (司南), thanks to Bi An. Wu chung is actually The vagueness is a halfway product Strangely, the point is what the compass is for (a) To: In Taoist culture, the compass is mostly used to watch Fengshui Yes, but there's a special function - a ghost hunt. By identifying Fengshui, the grievance and death can be found the soul, even a certain degree of communication. Combine Xie Bi An's behavior and compass of the fault and the impotence of the death may be seen for some time He was wandering around in white clothes with a black umbrella, so that he could find Wu Jiu's soul It's just the end to see if we find this He's die in Nan Tai Bridge. On the other hand, this type of compass also has a very strong lost love story in chinese poems The old thought was deliberate, very coincidence and the parachute of all kinds of events and thoughts Like corresponding.
In Wu Yun 《酬萧新浦王洗马诗二首》其二:
独对东风酒,谁举指南酌。 (Drinking the eastern wind wine alone, who will point to the South.) Meh meh mehhhhh (°༣°)༇༇
The poem corresponds to the image of "alone" and it does mention it the eastern wind and guide are discretionary (the guide and the eastern wind). And the Chinese are harmonious.
The Nan Tai bridge can refer to a Place in Fujian quanzou(福建泉州) (Southern China). And now the manor The parachute in the essence is a cultural object that is smuggled to England and cannot return to the hometown. In this sense, " 思南" (meaning Fu Jian) is not strange Iit's up. (If u can read chinese, it 暗喻)
And add a little bit of why First Official hate music. The sailor feared the "sirens". Sirens were mythological,often dangerous and beautiful,creatures,portrayed as femmes fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. Jose's family had felt into trouble because this "accident" He would hate the music "sound" because of the ship's missing.
╮(╯_╰)╭ No wonder.

2020.02.26 04:06 gnikivar2 Solid Foundation or Feet of Clay: Can China's Public Health System Contain the Novel Coronavirus

Since the first diagnosis of the Novel Coronavirus in December of 2019, the disease, as of February 23rd 2020, has infected 79,561 people and killed 2,619. The disease is rapidly spreading throughout the world, with recent outbreaks in Iran, Italy and South Korea. The Coronavirus is a pandemic moving so fast that it is likely that any podcast I record on the topic will be out of date between my research and the publishing of the podcast. Instead, I wanted to provide context for the current outbreak, by exploring the healthcare system of China, where 97% of all cases of Coronavirus are concentrated. In part one, I will be discussing the public health successes of the 1950s and 1960s and the neglect of the healthcare system in the early reform years. In part two, I will discuss the efforts of the Chinese state the strengthen the provision of healthcare, and the incomplete nature of these reforms. Finally, I will discuss how China has dealt with two prior epidemics, that of SARS and tuberculosis.
The era of Mao Zedong's rule from 1949 and 1976 was an era of disasters for the Chinese people. The anti-landlord campaign, the Campaign to Suppress Counterrevolutionaries, the Great Leap Forward, and Cultural Revolution lead to the senseless death of an uncountable number of people. One area where this narrative of horrors is not the primary story is in the major improvements in public health saw during this period. In 1980 China had an infant mortality of 48 per 1,000 and a life expectancy and a life expectancy of 67, similar to that of Argentina and Mexico, nations 25 times as wealthy as China in 1980. Starting from 1965, the Chinese government rapidly expanded access to health through the implementation of the Rural Cooperative Medical Scheme (RCMS), which by 1976 covered 92% of the rural population. Each brigade (the basic unit in China's cooperative farm system) financed a health cooperative that would purchase all medical supplies and pay for doctors. The Chinese government trained 1.8 million barefoot doctors, and 700,000 midwives. Barefoot doctors were usually traditional healers who received three to six months of training in western medicine at a local hospital. Barefoot doctors were paid no more than ordinary farmers, keeping the costs of the system low. The healthcare system offered limited care for the sick, and was instead focused on keeping people from getting sick in the first place. Every county in China had an Epidemic Prevention Station, and the government organized "Patriotic Health Campaigns" for one to two weeks a year focusing on creating sources of clean water, eradicating disease bearing pests such as mice and mosquitos, and latrine construction for human waste disposal.
The healthcare system of China was highly effective given the severe resource constraints (caused by disastrous economic management by Mao) it worked under. However, the collective system which provided the financial basis for the system, collapsed after 1976. Between 1976 and 1981 the percent of people in rural China enrolled in a health cooperative decreased from 92% to 10%. The barefoot doctors became village doctors, who were less well trained than barefoot doctors, and primarily financed themselves by selling medicines, whether they were needed or not. The public health focus of the healthcare system withered, and government spending on healthcare declined to less than 1% of GDP. Hospitals were expecting to be self-funding, and government hospitals prescribed as many diagnostic tests and pharmaceuticals as possible. For example, 75% of all Chinese hospital patients receive anti-bacterials with hospitals relying upon kickbacks from drug and testing makers to stay financially viable. The average junior doctor in Shanghai earned 20% less than the average recent college graduate, with the majority of Chinese patients saying they have paid bribes to doctors trying to supplement their low salaries. Chinese hospitals saw 17,000 against medical staff at hospitals.
The 2003 SARS made the failings of the Chinese healthcare system clear, and marked the beginning of serious reforms to the system. Government healthcare spending as a share of GDP increased from 1.2% to 2.9% between 2003 and 2018 marking a 10 fold increase in health spending. The government has created a New Rural Health Cooperative Scheme to increase access to healthcare in rural areas. The national government, local governments and rural residents, starting from 2003, contributed to an insurance system. Rural residents could buy insurances at different tiers, with different levels of coverage. The NRCMS has grown rapidly, and today covers more than 95% of rural residents. The program dramatically improved access to inpatient services, although the program hasn't kept catastrophic costs for rural people under control because the cost of increased health use was equivalent to the amount of insurance offered. The Chinese government has further expanded access to healthcare, with major expansion to insurance for the urban poor. Although the Chinese government aimed to have universal coverage by 2020, major gaps remain. Most importantly, China's floating population, the 270 million Chinese people with rural hukou (resident rights) who have migrated to urban areas, has very limited access to healthcare. Although some cities such as Shenzhen offer basic health insurance to migrant workers, most feel they have no obligation to what are effectively internal illegal migrants. China's floating population, the overwhelming majority of the country's urban working class, can choose to either pay out of pocket, return to their home villages for care, or avoid the healthcare system and hope for the best.
The Chinese government has invested heavily in improving its public health system, especially its control of infectious diseases. The 2003 SARS epidemic, which led to the loss of 774 lives worldwide, was a wake up call to the inadequacies to the Chinese public health system. The most notable aspect of the Chinese response is that although local authorities in Foshan rapidly responded to SARS, the national government did not act upon these warnings. The national government was worried about the potential of domestic panic and international loss of face. Although the first cases were reported on January 2nd, a media blackout maintained until February 11th, and serious mobilization only began on April 17th. Chinese local government officials are promoted upon their ability to promote economic growth, and had a strong incentive to downplay any epidemic that could scare away incentive. Moreover, the Ministry of Health was politically and bureaucratically weak made it difficult for the central government to coordinate the local level response. Many local governments refused to hand over virus samples to central labs, and municipal governments tried to handle SARS on its own even though local hospitals lacked the expertise to contain the disease. The government on April 17th the containing SARS was the top concern for all government officials, and all of sudden, local government officials started behaving as if their jobs dependended upon containing SARS. New coordination mechanisms were created, checkpoints to track peoples temperatures, and quarantines of cities were rapidly approved to successfully contain the disease.
While SARS is a case of how China the Chinese system can fail, tuberculosis shows how the system can work well when the incentives are properly aligned. Although the Chinese government began providing free anti-bacterial care for people with TB, most people did not access treatment fast enough. Starting from 2003, the Chinese government developed a program, in conjunction with the the World Bank, created a problem to pay for performance when treating TB. Village doctors were given financial incentives for every TB test conducted, transportation vouchers to poor people with TB, and incentives to make sure medical staff make sure people with TB complete their anti-bacterial courses. Between 2002 and 2007 the share of TB cases detected increased from 35% to 88%. Given that TB is easily curable so long as it is detected fast enough, this marked a massive success in saving lives. TB is a disease of poverty, with people suffering from malnutrition, or living in crowded an unsanitary conditions especially likely to get tuberculosis. The incidence of tuberculosis has declined from 61 to 81 between 2008 and 2018, thanks to the rapid decline in poverty in China. However, the structural barriers within the Chinese system make it harder to eradicate the disease. After adjusting for age, migrant workers are three times more likely to get tuberculosis, because of less access to healthcare, less access to housing, and higher rates of poverty.
This podcast might give one an inordinately negative idea of the Chinese health system. China has a life expectancy of 76, and infant mortality rate of 7 per 100,000, rates that are in line with those of other upper middle income countries. Rather, the purpose is to give context to the unique way in which China has tackled the coronavirus. The local government of Wuhan's decision to initially ignore the coronavirus stems from the flawed incentives faced by local authorities. At the same time, the extraordinary measures such as quarantines of massive metropolitan areas like Wuhan show the capacity of the Chinese state once the central government makes its priorities clear. It is unclear whether the strengths of weaknesses of the Chinese system have defined the response to the coronavirus. Controlling the coronavirus will require the Chinese government to both excel at its strengths, while looking honestly at its shortfallings.

The public health focus of the healthcare system withered, and government spending on healthcare declined to less than 1% of GDP. Hospitals were expecting to be self-funding, and government hospitals prescribed as many diagnostic tests and pharmaceuticals as possible. For example, 75% of all Chinese hospital patients receive anti-bacterials with hospitals relying upon kickbacks from drug and testing makers to stay financially viable. The average junior doctor in Shanghai earned 20% less than the average recent college graduate, with the majority of Chinese patients saying they have paid bribes to doctors trying to supplement their low salaries. Chinese hospitals saw 17,000 against medical staff at hospitals.
The 2003 SARS made the failings of the Chinese healthcare system clear, and marked the beginning of serious reforms to the system. Government healthcare spending as a share of GDP increased from 1.2% to 2.9% between 2003 and 2018 marking a 10 fold increase in health spending. The government has created a New Rural Health Cooperative Scheme to increase access to healthcare in rural areas. The national government, local governments and rural residents, starting from 2003, contributed to an insurance system. Rural residents could buy insurances at different tiers, with different levels of coverage. The NRCMS has grown rapidly, and today covers more than 95% of rural residents. The program dramatically improved access to inpatient services, although the program hasn't kept catastrophic costs for rural people under control because the cost of increased health use was equivalent to the amount of insurance offered. The Chinese government has further expanded access to healthcare, with major expansion to insurance for the urban poor. Although the Chinese government aimed to have universal coverage by 2020, major gaps remain. Most importantly, China's floating population, the 270 million Chinese people with rural hukou (resident rights) who have migrated to urban areas, has very limited access to healthcare. Although some cities such as Shenzhen offer basic health insurance to migrant workers, most feel they have no obligation to what are effectively internal illegal migrants. China's floating population, the overwhelming majority of the country's urban working class, can choose to either pay out of pocket, return to their home villages for care, or avoid the healthcare system and hope for the best.
The Chinese government has invested heavily in improving its public health system, especially its control of infectious diseases. The 2003 SARS epidemic, which led to the loss of 774 lives worldwide, was a wake up call to the inadequacies to the Chinese public health system. The most notable aspect of the Chinese response is that although local authorities in Foshan rapidly responded to SARS, the national government did not act upon these warnings. The national government was worried about the potential of domestic panic and international loss of face. Although the first cases were reported on January 2nd, a media blackout maintained until February 11th, and serious mobilization only began on April 17th. Chinese local government officials are promoted upon their ability to promote economic growth, and had a strong incentive to downplay any epidemic that could scare away incentive. Moreover, the Ministry of Health was politically and bureaucratically weak made it difficult for the central government to coordinate the local level response. Many local governments refused to hand over virus samples to central labs, and municipal governments tried to handle SARS on its own even though local hospitals lacked the expertise to contain the disease. The government on April 17th the containing SARS was the top concern for all government officials, and all of sudden, local government officials started behaving as if their jobs dependended upon containing SARS. New coordination mechanisms were created, checkpoints to track peoples temperatures, and quarantines of cities were rapidly approved to successfully contain the disease.
While SARS is a case of how China the Chinese system can fail, tuberculosis shows how the system can work well when the incentives are properly aligned. Although the Chinese government began providing free anti-bacterial care for people with TB, most people did not access treatment fast enough. Starting from 2003, the Chinese government developed a program, in conjunction with the the World Bank, created a problem to pay for performance when treating TB. Village doctors were given financial incentives for every TB test conducted, transportation vouchers to poor people with TB, and incentives to make sure medical staff make sure people with TB complete their anti-bacterial courses. Between 2002 and 2007 the share of TB cases detected increased from 35% to 88%. Given that TB is easily curable so long as it is detected fast enough, this marked a massive success in saving lives. TB is a disease of poverty, with people suffering from malnutrition, or living in crowded an unsanitary conditions especially likely to get tuberculosis. The incidence of tuberculosis has declined from 61 to 81 between 2008 and 2018, thanks to the rapid decline in poverty in China. However, the structural barriers within the Chinese system make it harder to eradicate the disease. After adjusting for age, migrant workers are three times more likely to get tuberculosis, because of less access to healthcare, less access to housing, and higher rates of poverty.
This podcast might give one an inordinately negative idea of the Chinese health system. China has a life expectancy of 76, and infant mortality rate of 7 per 100,000, rates that are in line with those of other upper middle income countries. Rather, the purpose is to give context to the unique way in which China has tackled the coronavirus. The local government of Wuhan's decision to initially ignore the coronavirus stems from the flawed incentives faced by local authorities. At the same time, the extraordinary measures such as quarantines of massive metropolitan areas like Wuhan show the capacity of the Chinese state once the central government makes its priorities clear. It is unclear whether the strengths of weaknesses of the Chinese system have defined the response to the coronavirus. Controlling the coronavirus will require the Chinese government to both excel at its strengths, while looking honestly at its shortfallings.

2019.12.04 23:10 PlesDontLieAboutCake $LOKI - Trade and communicate with absolute freedom - Decentralised internet privacy tools. $18M Market Cap

All the links are below including CoinMarketCap, Loki's github and websites.
What is Loki?
"Loki is a privacy network which will allow users to transact and communicate privately over the internet, providing a suite of tools to help maintain the maximum amount of anonymity possible while browsing, transacting and communicating online. Using the decentralised nature of blockchain technology, Loki creates new private and secure methods of interacting with the internet, as well as building privacy-centric applications, such as messaging services, forums, online marketplaces, and social media platforms". -Loki website
I've been following Loki for quite some time now and i believe it has great potential.
Personal data has become and entire market to big companies like Facebook and Google, and while they all use the line "We respect your privacy" Time has shown us that actually quite often they don't. As this trend continues privacy oriented browsers, VPN's and browser extensions have never been more popular, Loki aims to provide a complete suite of tools to completely protect it's users privacy on the internet in what i think is the best solution to this problem to date.
What exactly does Loki provide?
Loki currently has 3 main products: Loki wallet, Lokinet and Loki Messenger.
1: Loki messenger is a completely decentralised, end to end encrypted messenger app running on the Loki network. It is currently in BETA stage, It's going to be re-branded and bolstered with all the features a user has come to expect from a modern day messenger such as mentions, tags, mention replies, attachments, emojis, GIF's etc.
2: Lokinet is a unique, blockchain enforced and incentivized onion router, where you can browse the internet anonymously, visit and host private websites all without exposing your identity or IP address.
What makes Loki different to VPN's?
Because Loki is completely decentralised, no one including the Loki team or the Loki foundation has any access to the data on their network, meaning governments can't force them to hand peoples information over like we've seen happen before with VPN providers in the past.
They also cannot shut Loki down, The network already has 1000+ incentivised service nodes running by ordinary people around the world, to shut Loki down they would have to locate and shut down each node individually requiring a behemoth of resources making it almost impossible.
Loki team:
The team behind it is very active with updating it's community with progress and future implementations, and also includes Tom winget, The 3rd biggest code contributor to the Monero (XMR) Project with 120,000 lines of code.
Project support:
HASHED, Passport capital, Fengshui capital, SEAL, TLDR capital, 1kx, Astronaut capital and continue capital.

2019.06.14 05:42 AnotherOne287 Broke up with my girlfriend a few days ago. How can I be optimistic about future relationships? (M28, F27)

We were together for two years, and I'm not sure what to do now. I'm from the US and she is from Taiwan. I graduated last year and moved to her country, I ended up meeting all of her family and receiving their blessing to marry her and all of that. It was one of those relationships where she told me that she would always love me and be there for me no matter what. I don't come from wealth, so it was very difficult for me to be able to be with her but I did the best that I could over the past year to try to do so.
This past year I spent working in her country in order to be with her, but I recently returned to the United States in order to get a better job in California, and we were planning to move there together. After around two weeks of being apart, she started acting differently and gradually became more distant to the point where I could tell she wasn't interested in talking to me any more. We ended up getting in a fight over how she treated me and breaking up over it. I've spent the last few days trying to explain everything to her, but she isn't interested in saving our relationship. The reasons she gave me were either insignificant or a misunderstanding. What I think were the reasons include how focused I was on getting a job in the US, which she claims took all of my fun away. Another reason may be that her parents were pushing her to marry me immediately, but I couldn't because I couldn't afford a ring at the time. She also always accused me of cheating on her and wanted to go through my phone, even though I never did. She ended up talking to her fengshui master, who told her that I was cheating on her in the US even though I wasn't. I've literally been sleeping on the floor at my parents' house since I got here. Lastly, she may have wanted to experiment sexually with other people, because she mentioned multiple times that she was bisexual to me as if to ask for permission for her to hook up with random girls. When we first started dating even, she tried to get me to leave her alone at a club because she wanted to make out with one of her girlfriends. This isn't to say that she isn't attracted to men, because I know she was extremely attracted to me from the beginning, but I am not sure if she just wants the freedom to play around with random people or not.
What bothers me the most is that I wanted to overcome this challenge together because I knew it would make our connection stronger and prove our commitments, and now I feel like people only want to be around me during the good times and they don't really care about me enough to overcome the challenges that we might face. She believed it when she said that she would always support me and be there for me, but after a small challenge her mentality and commitments changed completely. This doesn't make sense at all to me, because once I commit to someone I would never betray that commitment. She went from crying at the airport when I left and begging me to stay another month to becoming distant within a matter of weeks and throwing our relationship away.
How can I continue to have optimism about my future relationships when she betrayed all of the things that she told me? How can I continue to have faith in finding someone who is willing to overcome a challenge to be with me? The relationship I had prior to this one hurt me more than I could have imagined as well, as I was so in love with the girl but we ended up breaking up due to my race and because she didn't want to deal with her parents disapproving of me not being her race. I don't want to be hurt any more like I have been in the past, but even when people are so convincing of their positive intentions they still manage to break their commitments and betray the things they have said.
TL;DR: Girlfriend told me she would always be there for me and then gave up on our relationship after we faced a moderate challenge to be together. How can I trust people in future relationships when she didn't commit to the things that she claimed?

2017.09.10 01:10 zod_zorinel [S3E18] FengShui

Although I see Twin Peaks as a satire (it is not noire, sci-fi, drama,comedy,etc. but also is all of that) and I really love Dr. Jacobi, the 'esotheric' part of the show may be nothing but fengshui from books. FengShui is about tuning a place (coordinates) to a specific time (date,year,hour). Doing it right will attract white good spirits and fortune, the reverse will be black, sorrow and pain. Some rules of FengShui: 10 is a round number (that 2:53 in ep 17). 8 is infinyte, yin-yang, Jeffries is showing an animation of a pointer on that 8. Finale: CoopeRichard is like trying to open an inexistent door in the middle of the road and thus "what year is it"

2016.10.13 06:49 upads Knowledge Monday: Getting married in China? Come learn about traditions!

Welcome to Knowledge Monday, a series I plan to introduce some niche Chinese literature not taught in textbooks yet interesting enough to entertain you for the week. To everyone who says it is not Monday today, FUCK YOU. This is Monday with Chinese characteristics!
Previously on knowledge Monday:
This week's Knowledge Monday inspired by LeadGold, self proclaimed dumb white guy, give him a round applause!
Strap on and stay tuned ladies and gentleman, and prepare yourself for a ride back to traditions, the history of marriage and how to hell do you be a good groomsman!

Before we start

Unlike modern western culture, Chinese traditions frown upon pre-martial contact. That's not just limited to dick-to-vagina contact, it's also limited to skin contact, verbal contact and visual contact. Yes, they fear you sexy voice and piercing stare is going to knock up their daughter----this is probably not gonna happen so a lot of the process may seem redundant and stupid nowadays, but still can be practiced for formality. I will guide you step by step how to do traditional Chinese marriage like a real traditional Chinese the traditional way. This will impress your future in-laws a lot and show how good you are with Chinese traditions! Respect!
So, for a man to marry a woman, you obviously need to have a target. In China, you don't date your future wife. You find a matchmaker who will find a wife for you, and he/she will sort everything out for you.
Now, since we have shit like weixin, kik and tantan, we can skip a lot of middleman work and jump straight to...
三書六禮 (San1 Shu1 Liu4 Li3)
三書六禮, means 3 letters and 6 presents. It's the thing that replaces western wedding. Let's crack on it:

三書

  1. 聘書 - Engagement letter. This is a letter you write to your girlfriend's family to state your intention to marry their daughter. Be nice. Flatter them a lot for raising such a great daughter and how nice it would be for them to allow her to marry into your household. Don't forget to include the bullet in the envelop.
  2. 禮書 - Dowry letter. Upon acceptation of your engagement, you will now present a simple checklist of the dowry that you are going to give to your future wife's household. Nothing too complex here, there's a standard to what needs to be in the dowry so no need to get creative!(see below)
  3. 迎書 - Your marriage letter. This is a formal letter finalizing your marriage. In modern days, it can just be a copy of your marriage registration, to be handed to your soon-to-be wife's parents on the day of marriage.
Whew! That wasn't so hard, right? Now on the "fun" part:

六禮

Liu li, or six rituals.This is a lot of shit to remember, people usually follow a guidebook for it because it isn't worth remembering this one time event. Bad news is, there's no official guidebook for sale and the rules of the six rituals are often passed down by word of mouth, which are often altered/twisted to the point nobody knows which one is real. Fear not! The almighty upads is here to help!
For starters, the 6 rituals of traditional Chinese marriage are: 納采(Na4 Cai3), 問名(Wen4 Ming2), 納吉 (Na4 Ji2), 納徵(Na4 Zheng1), 請期(Qing3 qi3), 親迎(Qin1 Ying2)
Wow, so many difficult words! Don't worry, let's blitz through it:
The first everything. Remember your engagement letter? When your girlfriend's parents reads it and nods, you are supposed to magically conjure up your first part of your dowry. Contact SF Express, have them arrange the magical part for you. You have more pressing matter: what the fuck are you supposed to bring up?
According to The encyclopedia of Chinese traditions written in Tang dynasty, here's the 30 items you will need. Each items carries a meaning to it, but I am not going to jump too deep into the rabbit hole:
  1. A goat - preferably live, but a carving would do nowadays
  2. An anser - usually a carving would do, but if you do show up with a live anser you're going to be the King of Swag in their family tree. Historically only the most powerful people can come up with a live anser because how hard it is to catch one alive. DO NOT USE A DEAD ANSER.
  3. Rice wine - Don't mistake this with baijiu. This needs to be light in alcohol levels!
  4. Baijiu - Don't mistake this with rice wine. This needs to be REAL baijiu with strong alcoholic content!
  5. White rice - PLEASE PRESENT THIS RAW NOT COOKED
  6. Millet rice - PLEASE PRESENT THIS RAW NOT COOKED
  7. Straw mat - like those round ones the monks sit on in a monsasary
  8. Reed
  9. Selaginella - just the leaf is fine.
  10. Grain - the whole stalk.
  11. Clothing - for the parents to wear during wedding. NO MICKY MOUSE PLEASE
  12. Paint - the kind of paint you use for interior decoration.
  13. Sewing threads - 5 different colors
  14. A bell - You hang this outside your room as a message "BANGING: DO NOT DISTURB"
  15. Ink - Not the kind of liquidy ink in a bottle. A solid slab of ink, for traditional caligraphy use!
  16. Money - HAS TO BE COINS
  17. Mint
  18. Bone prayer beeds - Please don't give us a rosary
  19. A pair of Mandarin duck - live preferred, carving acceptable
  20. Fish - live preferred
  21. Deer - live preferred
  22. Another Bird - any bird would do, small breed preferred. PLEASE DON'T BRING ANGRY BIRD PLUSHIE
  23. Magnifying glasses
  24. TCM pellet
  25. Phoenix and dragon - Obvious a carving. But if you can show up with a real live phoenix please break up with your girlfriend, marry me.
(Crap. I forgot 27, 28, 29 and 30...When I get back to China I will have full access to my library and I can come back and update. For now just come up with something random for the last 3 items. It's not like they know any better)
Whew! So we're done with the hardest part! Let's move on to the next part:
Name exchange. This is sounds like a redundant part because you two know each other's name. But do you know you also need to ask for the date and time of birth as well? The details will be written in an envelop and exchanged between you and your future in-aws. You then need to find some monk/daoist to analyze your and her birth date/time and announce you two are a great match since birth.
Well that was easy, moving on:
Casual dowry. You have probably shocked the hell out of your future in-laws with your first batch of dowry, so the next weekend bring some alcohol and food(meat preferred) as your second part of dowry and you chill with them for a meal. The modern day norm is to bring table wine and beef/pork jerky but whatever you like!
This is probably your future in-law's favorite part. Remember how people are asking for money? This is the part where you show them the money, but don't go in alone! You need to bring a matchmaker(please just hire a temporary one and not show them your kik profile), and an even number of female relatives of yours to accompany you. This ritual is a very important and grand one so do whatever you need to overshadow the amount of money you offered. The matchmaker and female relatives are a must but you are not limited to hiring a parade, a band, an orchestra and the SWAT to show up at your future in-law's house. However, make sure they know when you are coming to give them the dowry money so they are expecting you!
Apart from money, you also need to bring another batch of dowry. Here's list of what you should be bring:
  1. Numerous Pastry, preferably a basket of them
  2. Numerous seafood. The most expensive ones of course.
  3. Chicken and pork
  4. Fish.
  5. Two coconut. Don't ask why.
  6. Their own collection of vintage wine/alcohol
  7. 4 traditional dried fruits: dragon eye, lychee, cashew, peanuts
  8. Fresh fruits
  9. Tea
  10. Box of jewlery for the daughter to wear during wedding. Has to be gold. Oh and include a some sweets in the box too, that's also traditional.
The in-laws are also required to pay you a reverse dowry of the following:
  1. Tea
  2. Fruits
  3. Lotus
  4. Taro
  5. Pomegranate
  6. A handkerchief with your name on it---they should know your name from the name exchange previously.
  7. Trousers (for the wedding) - If you gave them the Micky mouse custome this is the time for their revenge
  8. Socks (for the wedding) - If you gave them the Micky mouse custome this is the time for their revenge
  9. Various pastry
  10. Dowry money---yeah, they are supposed to give you back the dowry money you gave them.
  11. Coconut----remember you brought them 2 coconut? They are supposed to keep one, and give you one back.
Wedding invitation.
This is done briefly after you the last dowry payment. They probably have fainted so just leave the invitation letter at their doorstep as you walk out, The Imperial March playing behind you.
Wedding. The entire wedding should be arranged and paid for by the bride's family so there's not much you need to worry. Stock up on Viagra and condoms.
Happy wedding!

2016.01.19 22:03 xiaopewpew Its ok to believe in whatever you want to believe about Gui MinHai, but do so with the right reasons.

I saw quite a few "reasons" people quoted here but they are somewhat off to me. I think the most important facts to check here are if Gui MinHai was in NingBo at the time of the accident and that if the court document and police investigative report are real. Here is why
  1. Name mismatch : it is not uncommon for people to use a name that writes differently but reads the same compare to their original birth certificate. It happens, for example,in Southern China : some people believe in fengshui, and the fengshui man will tell them they need an element in their name. To make up for the element, they alter a character in their name. Lots of people do not bother to go through the formality of name change, a colleague of mine uses a different name when declaring taxes for this reason. In this case, Gui MinHai could easily have changed his name somewhere in his life and it wont matter with a Swedish passport since they spell the same.
  2. Age : The age quoted on the investigative report is wrong, but the date of birth in court document is correct. Every news article in HongKong was quoting the investigative report :D It could just be a genuine mistake. The court document is more official and the mistake in the police report is not a big deal if the court document is real.
  3. Why does he run if he doesnt have to go to prison? People do things you dont understand all the time. Why do ISIS blow up buildings if there arent 77 virgins to be had in heaven? Doesnt mean they didnt do it. In this case specifically, the sentence he received was quite lenient, and the family of the victims could file for a retrial. He could be afraid of that. Also by running he evaded his civil liabilities too, he didnt have to compensate the family of the victim anymore. There could be all kinds of reasons and this honestly is not a "loophole" in the story.
  4. Shirt and hair change in the confession video. Taking a confession in one shot doesnt make it real, the same way taking a confession in multiple parts doesnt make it unreal. There is no visible sign of physical abuse, the guy seem to be in good health, he has been gone for a few months but still looks chubby hence I dont think he was under a lot of mental stress.
Anyway, I think the drunk driving incident is his doing if the reports presented are legit. Well, unless you are willing to suggest another Swedish national with a name reads the same as his matching the age in police investigative report did this. I think it would be a very far fetched claim. I dont think he went back voluntarily though :D Still, as it stands, drunk driving killing someone and running away makes him a man scum, he pretty much deserves whatever coming to him next.
Edit : Why did I even bother, fuck me right?

2015.10.21 12:03 chocoshark Great parks, bars, other nightlife, etc. I love SZ and I'm listing all that I've explored in the 6 months I've been here.

I've come to fall in love with SZ. And now that I'm moving to GZ, I wanted to write all of this down in case I forget in the future. There are tons of really cool things to do around here.
..
Parks with barely any people(all free):
New favorite! Bike ride along the coast! (Shenzhen Bay Park 深圳湾公园, entrances Hongshuwan 红树湾 station/Houhai station) - Beautiful bike ride! One of the most unique in the world because you can see the HK skyline across the pond. Not as visually beautiful as Tsim Sha Tsui, but much cooler because you get to bike a good 9km (from Futian to Shekou). With a defined bike trail and well placed incandescent streetlights (rare here) along the ocean, it's can be a romantic date activity as well.
Friend and I rented bikes from the entrance of the Futian side (I believe 30kuai for 2 hours, 40kuai for 3, good deal), and went all along the coast. Beautiful in the afternoon and night, with the sunset and then skylights turning on. There will be a lot of people there though, so I recommend going at non peak hours. Took us 2.5 hours from Futian to Shekou and back.
Central Park 深圳中心公园 (somewhat near HuaQiangBei 华强北)- one of my favorite running routes is along the river. It's a 3km route that gets less crowded the further north you go. It's a massive park that can completely take you away from crowds, or immerse you in the families that come and play by the river.
LianHuaShan Park 莲花公园 (near Children's Palace stop 少年管)-- One of my favorite places because of the location. Check out all the places around the station stops. There's a lot of beautiful architecture to appreciate. It's next to:
Shenzhen International Garden and Flower Expo Park 深圳国际林花卉博览会 (near Zhuzilin Stop 竹子林) -- A hidden gem. About a 15 min walk from the station; you enter the park through a stretch of restuarants (some delicious Mongalian and seafood BBQ to be had here). Not many people here at all in general.
Lychee Park-- This gets a mention because so many people seem to like this park, but to be honest this is nothing compared to any of the 3 above.
Wutong Mountain The highest point in Shenzhen. Go to Laojie Exit C, across the street. Take bus 211 to end of wutong mountain stop (terminal stop)
..
Bars
Coco Park (near Shopping Park station 购物公园)-- Great place for foreign foods (decent pizza, decent Indian, I hear there's a passable mexican food place here too). Fools Heaven is always a wonderful option for cheap quality beer with good music. I think Lily Marelene's is overrated. There's something for everyone here; a Shark Bar (with live sharks swimming in the restaurant front! Jellyfish aquarium inside. A lot of Italian servers. Quality food. Next to Fool's heaven), A nice rooftop bar (forget the name, next to Starbucks in the mall), etc. Too many to list. The only thing it lacks is a good place to dance.
HouHai-- Good place to explore as well, good selection of food and bars. Boom Boom Room is pretty wild (you have to wear closed toed shoes to enter, or else they make you by theirs)
Guomao-- Haven't been, but I hear there's some great places to dance here.
..
Dinner places to take your friends/dates to
Chegongmiao 车公庙-- Interesting place to go for a dinner. There are 2-3 levels of underground streets a few blocks long for shopping and eating. Great korean food here. The Langham hotel is near here too, which is a very nice hotel for a decent price (upscale for Chinese prices). Beautiful rooftop pool; worth walking around.
OCT loft (closer to QiaoCheng East Station 侨城东)-- Old factories converted to an artsy scene; really beautifully renovated; they integrated the industrial look with art well. Great food here, good vibes.
OCT bay 华侨城欢乐海岸 (A ~20min walk from OCT loft)-- Worth a walk around the place; redeveloped into a modernized version of cultural Chinese architecture. A family scene by day, nightlife/bars (some served with scantily clad women) at night.
Laojie 老街-- THE place to go to for shoes, glasses, or neon signs, but also just about everything else. Lots of good street food for cheap; it's a very young adult Chinese hangout spot, which also means it gets VERY crowded on holidays/weekend nights.
Seaworld 海上世界-- Also a good place to go; Some nice areas to walk along the coast. There is a very good coffee shop that serves one of the best tasting purin I've ever had.
Shenzhen Bay Bike Ride-- Great date activity. See above under parks.
..
For the Hardware People-- Since SZ is a vibrant hardware hacker scene, I'm including a few things for the hackers.
Hua Qiang Bei- Techha (tech mecca) for the hackers. Fun to explore, but extremely overwhelming and tiring. Good for inspiration, and then going on Taobao/Alibaba later on to see if you can get a better deal (or use this information to bargain with; just beware of quality)
SEEED-- Local Chinese Maker company. Very impressive with the amount they do in China and beyond. True hustlers.
HAX-- International Hardware accelerator in HQB. Beautiful office, awesome smart people working in there 24/7.
Dangerous Prototypes-- The founder (very cool dude), helps coordinate one of the largest online communities of Shenzhen expat hackers.
..
MISC
I'm going to stop here for now, it's taken me a few hours to write all this. But enjoy SZ! And add more cool stuff if you've got any!

2015.05.30 14:23 ovimiami A Droplet of Consciousness in a Kingdom of Infinite Existence. (LEVEL 5 TRIP REPORT)

A Heroic Tale of Two Psychonauts and the Psilocybin Sage.
Preface
The date was May 24th, 2015. My good friend Z had called me in the morning and proposed the idea of taking medicinal mushrooms... Not just any but one of the strongest strains known to man, the famous Penis Envies (PE). I have already acquainted myself with this prized strain of mushroom earlier this year so I knew what I was getting myself into. After debating for a short time, we decided to take a full 3 grams each. A dose I was longing to do. Most of my journeys have been accompanied by 2-2.5 grams, which is an extremely powerful dose in itself however none of those journeys were as deep and profound as this one.
Preparation
I developed a method for consumption which I religiously do each time I use this medicine. I mix raw, melted cacao with a superfood paste to create an organic, raw product. This time, I mixed the grounded mushroom with a Goji paste to make a raw superfood patty. With a double boiler, at a low temperature, I melt down the cacao then distribute it along with the patty into a custom mold which leaves a beautiful Metatron cube print on the finishing chocolate.
Set & Setting
After we made the chocolates, we head over to Z's friends estate. The house was a spectacular display to say the least. A legitimate museum of invaluable keepsakes. There were ancient relics and artifacts, abstract art, archaic weapons from around the world, beautiful pieces of furniture, all types of unique novelties, 3D models of sacred geometry, huge crystals and elements from nature all through the manor. The ambience had a very eastern yet modern feel about it. The Fengshui was extraordinary. It was complete with a large pasture and barn in the backyard which had horses roaming around. The set and setting was warm, picturesque, and beyond adequate.
Once we settled down, we set our intentions and ate half of the chocolate. We then took a walk through the backyard into the forest which was joined by a gate from the property. As we were walking, the medicine started to set in. The lush trail of plants, roots and vines started to gently morph within the naturalistic environment. The onset came on pretty abrupt so before we got lost in the swiveling vines, we set course back to the manor. Once back, we sat down to smoke a joint where things started to get interesting.
Our reference of time was so warped that the whole experience felt like it did not happened chronologically but more so happened as one juncture with various points of experiences. I will do my best to piece together what seemed like an infinite moment. Our only grounding device was a voice recorder that was keeping track of earth time. This was our compass back home.
The Voyage
As the medicine was setting in I played Global Drum Project (a percussionist group) on the surround sound to help guide our consciousness. The medicine was starting to take over and at this point all we could do was lay on the carpet and let the music take us away. It wasn't long before I started transfiguring. It felt so effortless to let go of all tension and physical bounding and shift into a higher frequency. Within seconds my being became infinite in all directions. I was no longer a definition of my physical environment.
Everything that I knew on a mundane level was completely stripped away. The pixels of this 3rd dimension were unraveling at an unfathomable rate. The node of my egoic mind was only but a droplet of consciousness in an everlasting kingdom of infinite existence. Nothing made sense in practical human terms yet it all made sense in the grand scheme of things.
I eventually entered into this space-void which was extremely expansive. It felt like an endless tesseract-temple made out of photonic information. This dimension had an eccentric soundscape to it. I translated the carrier waves as deep woousz, sharp electromagnetic waves and metallic clicks. There was no musical pattern or tempo to it, just modulated vibrations from another plane of existence. After catapulting through multiple realms, I came across a sacred mothefeminine presence that brought me into her awareness. It was a comforting entity and soothing experience.
As I continued to flow in this space-void, I encountered these other peculiar entities that gave off a copacetic energy as we greeted each other. They emitted a curious vibe with good intentions. They were conveying a message that I interpreted along the lines of "Whats up my lower dimensional friend, you're a funny looking one". Its form was partially tangible to my senses yet I could make out a whimsical harlequin that was continuously absorbing then exerting its own energy in a torus style vacuum.
After these encounters I had to get up and gather some composure. The house felt like a hyper dimensional space ship traveling at light speed hitting turbulence. Time and space were completely distorted and the qubit units of the physical realm were all mesh together beyond the point of recognition. The environment was a soup of colors, shapes and sounds. It got pretty rough and for some time I was staggering around like a drunken space pirate.
Z and I decided to eat another quarter and walk outside to get some fresh air and catch the sunset. It was an awe-inspiring view; the milky pink sky was swaying away as we gazed into the horizon. It was such an overwhelming moment that we got on our knees and eventually laid face down on the soft pasture. My very essence dissolved into the soil and melded with the benevolent spirit of mother nature. It was as if I was communicating with every aspect of the organic world at once: plants, beasts, birds, fish, insects, water and land. It was a healing and solemn moment as I felt my heart-space expand immensely
As we got up, Z took me over by the barn where he retrieved two 24k, gold plated pyramidal structures constructed for meditational purposes. We brought them back to the house to mediate under later in the night.
The Trial For Sanity
As the 3rd quarter of the chocolate started to gain its effects on us, Z was starting to have the infamous bad trip. Z was an experienced psychonaut who has used various plant medicines before however he must have underestimated the power of this strain of mushroom. He called his brother to talk and could hardly piece words together as he was trying to describe what he did last night. I could tell his brother was getting a kick out of it. I was signaling to hang up the phone to focus back on our reality. At this point Z had to purge and went to the bathroom to do so. The medicine was hitting hard and Z wanted to find an escape.
At this point we were so deep in the abyss there was no telling if we'd ever find our way back to our normal ways of human existence. Our sanity was put on trial. The subjective world of anthropological ideas and concepts we once knew were only a vague remembrance of our old identities. We were two pioneers stranded on a multidimensional island in the ocean of the cosmos, struggling to grasp the conditions we were subject to... This was complete ego death.
Z wanted to grab my amethyst crystal I had brought and smash the glass table in the lounge quarters to anchor himself back to human reality. I was doing my best to comfort him out of the bad trip letting him know he is the controller of his experience; to tap into his warrior spirit and take control of his thoughts. He really wanted to end it all but I told him that he must give into the moment and allow each frame of the experience to pass. After he got over his bad trip I suggested that we take the last quarter and go back outside to smoke another joint. We weren't expecting what happened next.
Man vs Wild
As Z approached the sliding glass door, a family of raccoons precariously came up looking for food. I thought the scene was entertaining and attempted to feed the raccoons a banana. Z quickly talked me out of that idea, which was probably best. The last thing we needed in our state of mind was a family of rabid raccoons taking over the house and attacking us. So we were stuck inside for some bit.
Once the raccoons left. I had the urge to go outside again. I grabbed a huge dagger to fend off the raccoons and went to the screened-in patio. A rush of excitement jolted over me as I was about to go out into the wild. There was a huge sense of liberation in this act of breaking free from that fear based state of mind, regardless of the potential dangers that entailed. Z wasn't all too receptive with this idea and we joked around about Murphy's law.
Z said he'd rather not go outside as it poses physical dangers and risks. He stated it was a Jewish thing. As Z was watching me venture off into the outback safely from the patio, he bumps into a cabinet and almost knocked over some expensive antiquities. He relays his revelation that maybe it was safer outside. We both laugh at the paradoxical episode as he joined me.
Revelations
We smoked some herb then brought the 24k gold pyramidal structures in the backyard to mediate in. I felt a strong grounding while under the gold pyramid. Images of sacred geometry flashed in my minds eye. After the meditation, we went out into the pasture as the moon was setting in between two palm trees. We started to philosophize about how everything in existence are just particles of the God source with their individual points of reference, experiencing itself unto itself. The fact we were existing so independently yet so connected at the most fundamental core was an epiphany beyond any linguistic expression. No words could describe that absolute moment where two sentient beings comprehended each other synchronically as one. It was a communion of all that is experiencing itself from different subjecting points in our expressive existence.
While outside, Z taught me some tai chi which helped me understand how energy could get stuck inside you. I was circulating my stuck energy with movement and intention as he taught me different techniques.
After our tai chi session, we went back inside the manor where we found the most amazing invention... The water bed. I laid down and just drifted back into infinity as subtle thoughts arose. I came to realize that regardless of where your at in the world, despite what class, race, or culture you stem from, we all share the same constitutional experiences. Do away with the labels and all thats left is raw emotion. The highs and lows the stock broker on wall street experiences are the same highs and same lows as the indigenous child in the amazon jungle experiences. We all draw from the same life force no matter what physical facade you cover it with.
The Descent
The medicine was finally wearing off. There was a sense of solace that came over Z and I. We gambled our sanity, wandered to the deepest corridors of our minds and conquered the heroic trial of the psilocybian mushroom all while integrating revelations, alternate realities and a sacred communion with all that is.
Epilogue
It has now been 3 days since that exhaustive journey and I feel so content with all elements of life. I feel whole and connected. Understanding and tolerant. Appreciative and knowledgable. I am no longer confined by the dogmas of incomplete concepts construed by my mind that tell me "This is the [apparent] reality". I know there is only one ultimate reality that each of us attempts to interpret the best we can. I feel a transparent communion with the creator of all that is and I tribute these marvelous epiphanies to the use of plant medicines. With that notion said, I endorse any individual interested in altering their consciousness [with the right intention] through the use of plant medicines to aid in a better understanding of what their existence is all about.

A rush of excitement jolted over me as I was about to go out into the wild. There was a huge sense of liberation in this act of breaking free from that fear based state regardless of the potential dangers that entailed. Z wasn't all too receptive with this idea and we joked around about Murphy's law.
Z said he'd rather not go outside as it poses physical dangers and risks. He stated it was a Jewish thing. As Z was watching me venture off into the outback safely from the patio, he bumps into a cabinet and almost knocked over some expensive antiquities. He relays his revelation that maybe it was safer outside. We both laugh at the paradoxical episode as he joined me.
Revelations
We smoked some herb then brought the 24k gold pyramidal structures in the backyard to mediate in. I felt a strong grounding while under the gold pyramid. Images of sacred geometry flashed in my minds eye. After the meditation, we went out into the pasture as the moon was setting in between two palm trees. We started to philosophize about how everything in existence are just particles of the God source with their individual points of reference, experiencing itself unto itself. The fact we were existing so independently yet so connected at the most fundamental core was an epiphany beyond any linguistic expression. No words could describe that absolute moment where two sentient beings comprehended each other synchronically as one. It was a communion of all that is experiencing itself from different subjecting points in our expressive existence.
While outside, Z taught me some tai chi which helped me understand how energy could get stuck inside you. I was circulating my stuck energy with movement and intention as he taught me different techniques.
After our tai chi session, we went back inside the manor where we found the most amazing invention... The water bed. I laid down and just drifted back into infinity as subtle thoughts arose. I came to realize that regardless of where your at in the world, despite what class, race, or culture you stem from, we all share the same constitutional experiences. Do away with the labels and all thats left is raw emotion. The highs and lows the stock broker on wall street experiences are the same highs and same lows as the indigenous child in the amazon jungle experiences. We all draw from the same life force no matter what physical facade you cover it with.
The Descent
The medicine was finally wearing off. There was a sense of solace that came over Z and I. We gambled our sanity, wandered to the deepest corridors of our minds and conquered the heroic trial of the psilocybian mushroom all while integrating revelations, alternate realities and a sacred communion with all that is.
Epilogue
It has now been 3 days since that exhaustive journey and I feel so content with all elements of life. I feel whole and connected. Understanding and tolerant. Appreciative and knowledgable. I am no longer confined by the dogmas of incomplete concepts construed by my mind that tell me "This is the [apparent] reality". I know there is only one ultimate reality that each of us attempts to interpret the best we can. I feel a transparent communion with the creator of all that is and I tribute these marvelous epiphanies to the use of plant medicines. With that notion said, I endorse any individual interested in altering their consciousness [with the right intention] through the use of plant medicines to aid in a better understanding of what their existence is all about.

2015.05.29 18:19 ovimiami A Droplet of Consciousness in a Kingdom of Infinite Existence.

A heroic tale of two psychonauts and the psilocybin sage. (HERO DOSE)
Preface
The date was May 24th, 2015. My good friend Z had called me in the morning and proposed the idea of taking medicinal mushrooms... Not just any but one of the strongest strains known to man, the famous Penis Envies (PE). I have already acquainted myself with this prized strain of mushroom earlier this year so I knew what I was getting myself into. After debating for a short time, we decided to take a full 3 grams each. A dose I was longing to do. Most of my journeys have been accompanied by 2-2.5 grams, which is an extremely powerful dose in itself however none of those journeys were as deep and profound as this one.
Preparation
I developed a method for consumption which I religiously do each time I use this medicine. I mix raw, melted cacao with a superfood paste to create an organic, raw product. This time, I mixed the grounded mushroom with a Goji paste to make a raw superfood patty. With a double boiler, at a low temperature, I melt down the cacao then distribute it along with the patty into a custom mold which leaves a beautiful Metatron cube print on the finishing chocolate.
Set & Setting
After we made the chocolates, we head over to Z's friends estate. The house was a spectacular display to say the least. A legitimate museum of invaluable keepsakes. There were ancient relics and artifacts, abstract art, archaic weapons from around the world, beautiful pieces of furniture, all types of unique novelties, 3D models of sacred geometry, huge crystals and elements from nature all through the manor. The ambience had a very eastern yet modern feel about it. The Fengshui was extraordinary. It was complete with a large pasture and barn in the backyard which had horses roaming around. The set and setting was warm, picturesque, and beyond adequate.
Once we settled down, we set our intentions and ate half of the chocolate. We then took a walk through the backyard into the forest which was joined by a gate from the property. As we were walking, the medicine started to set in. The lush trail of plants, roots and vines started to gently morph within the naturalistic environment. The onset came on pretty abrupt so before we got lost in the swiveling vines, we set course back to the manor. Once back, we sat down to smoke a joint where things started to get interesting.
Our reference of time was so warped that the whole experience felt like it did not happened chronologically but more so happened as one juncture with various points of experiences. I will do my best to piece together what seemed like an infinite moment. Our only grounding device was a voice recorder that was keeping track of earth time. This was our compass back home.
The Voyage
As the medicine was setting in I played Global Drum Project (a percussionist group) on the surround sound to help guide our consciousness. The medicine was starting to take over and at this point all we could do was lay on the carpet and let the music take us away. It wasn't long before I started transfiguring. It felt so effortless to let go of all tension and physical bounding and shift into a higher frequency. Within seconds my being became infinite in all directions. I was no longer a definition of my physical environment.
Everything that I knew on a mundane level was completely stripped away. The pixels of this 3rd dimension were unraveling at an unfathomable rate. The node of my egoic mind was only but a droplet of consciousness in an everlasting kingdom of infinite existence. Nothing made sense in practical human terms yet it all made sense in the grand scheme of things.
I eventually entered into this space-void which was extremely expansive. It felt like an endless tesseract-temple made out of photonic information. This dimension had an eccentric soundscape to it. I translated the carrier waves as deep woousz, sharp electromagnetic waves and metallic clicks. There was no musical pattern or tempo to it, just modulated vibrations from another plane of existence. After catapulting through multiple realms, I came across a sacred mothefeminine presence that brought me into her awareness. It was a comforting entity and soothing experience.
As I continued to flow in this space-void, I encountered these other peculiar entities that gave off a copacetic energy as we greeted each other. They emitted a curious vibe with good intentions. They were conveying a message that I interpreted along the lines of "Whats up my lower dimensional friend, your a funny looking one". Its form was partially tangible to my senses yet I could make out a whimsical harlequin that was continuously absorbing then exerting its own energy in a torus style vacuum.
After these encounters I had to get up and gather some composure. The house felt like a hyper dimensional space ship traveling at light speed hitting turbulence. Time and space were completely distorted and the qubit units of the physical realm were all mesh together beyond the point of recognition. The environment was a soup of colors, shapes and sounds. It got pretty rough and for some time I was staggering around like a drunken space pirate.
Z and I decided to eat another quarter and walk outside to get some fresh air and catch the sunset. It was an awe-inspiring view; the milky pink sky was swaying away as we gazed into the horizon. It was such an overwhelming moment that we got on our knees and eventually laid face down on the soft pasture. My very essence dissolved into the soil and melded with the benevolent spirit of mother nature. It was as if I was communicating with every aspect of the organic world at once: plants, beasts, birds, fish, insects, water and land. It was a healing and solemn moment as I felt my heart-space expand immensely
As we got up, Z took me over by the barn where he retrieved two 24k, gold plated pyramidal structures constructed for meditational purposes. We brought them back to the house to mediate under later in the night.
The Trial For Sanity
As the 3rd quarter of the chocolate started to gain its effects on us, Z was starting to have the infamous bad trip. Z was an experienced psychonaut who has used various plant medicines before however he must have underestimated the power of this strain of mushroom. He called his brother to talk and could hardly piece words together as he was trying to describe what he did last night. I could tell his brother was getting a kick out of it. I was signaling to hang up the phone to focus back on our reality. At this point Z had to purge and went to the bathroom to do so. The medicine was hitting hard and Z wanted to find an escape.
At this point we were so deep in the abyss there was no telling if we'd ever find our way back to our normal ways of human existence. Our sanity was put on trial. The subjective world of anthropological ideas and concepts we once knew were only a vague remembrance of our old identities. We were two pioneers stranded on a multidimensional island in the ocean of the cosmos, struggling to grasp the conditions we were subject to. This was complete ego death.
Z wanted to grab my amethyst crystal I brought and smash the glass table in the lounge quarters to anchor himself back to human reality. I was doing my best to comfort him out of the bad trip letting him know he is the controller of his experience; to tap into his warrior spirit and take control of his thoughts. He really wanted to end it all but I told him that he must give into the moment and allow each frame of the experience to pass. After he got over his bad trip I suggested that we take the last quarter and go back outside to smoke another joint. We weren't expecting what happened next.
Man vs Wild
As Z approached the sliding glass door, a family of raccoons precariously came up looking for food. I thought the scene was entertaining and attempted to feed the raccoons a banana. Z quickly talked me out of that idea, which was probably best. The last thing we needed in our state of mind was a family of rabid raccoons taking over the house and attacking us. So we were stuck inside for some bit.
Once the raccoons left. I had the urge to go outside again. I grabbed a huge dagger to fend off the raccoons and went to the screened-in patio. A rush of excitement jolted over me as I was about to go out into the wild. There was a huge sense of liberation in this act of breaking free from that fear based state regardless of the potential dangers that entailed. Z wasn't all too receptive with this idea and we joked around about Murphy's law.

2011.06.03 23:14 ipomopur Maybe I'm missing the point, but at least I probably won't get any more chain letters.

My landlady loves chain letters.
-----Original Message----- From: herp Sent: Sat 5/28/2011 9:52 AM To: derp, derpina, derpina's brother, herpette,... Subject: Money bags.
Money bags
This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So, forward this to your friends and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui. The one who does not forward.....will be without money.
Kinda interesting - read on!!!
This year we're going to experience four unusual dates.
1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11 and that's not all...
Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born - now add the age you will be this year,
The results will be 111 for everyone in whole world. This is the year of the Money!!!
The proverb goes that if you send this to eight good friends money will appear in next four days as it is explained in Chinese FENGSHUI.
Those who don't continue the chain won't receive.......
Its a mystery, but its worth a try. good luck. "I GET BUY GIVING"
My response:
823 years ago China did not use our calendar, and had no concept of what weekends nor July were. They did use a lunar calendar, so there is a basis for an equivalence to months, but it isn't the same. I also believe that chain letters hadn't been invented yet, and their place in Feng Shui is dubious at best. The significance of the dates containing only ones is lost on me, and the fact that everyone's age plus the difference of the previous century will always equal 100, adding in 11 for the 11 years since the last century, is pure coincidence. Neither of these statements have anything to do with money, and it's worth pointing out that an almost equivalent event would have taken place in '01. And then there's the fact that the year isn't '11, it's 2011, which throws the whole thing off. Compound that with the fact that the years are based on Jesus's birth and might as well be arbitrary to Feng Shui and to economics. Phew, I think I missed a few points but regardless, superstition is hogwash. Oh yeah, and pull out a calendar because July of 2005 also had 5 each of Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. If you like, I can have a list of ALL the months that exhibit this, and cross reference it to any significant economic patterns, but I seriously doubt that it would do any good.
