I googled theta waves today, part of a developing interest in meditation, and came across Get High Now. Note: this does not constitute an endorsement of drug use, but rather a window into the myriad ways our brains can be coaxed into altered states by the application of targeted sensory stimuli. I’m preparing to establish a regular meditation practice, but in the interim, and probably beyond, I’m not averse to a little help from science – and programmers.
Budding photographers – and perhaps seasoned ones as well – will be interested to check out this virtual lighting studio, courtesy of Lifehacker. Between this and some of the more basic simulators out there, developing an eye for the finer points of photography is getting easier and easier. Or at least more accessible.
Finally, returning to the realm of self-improvement, I didn’t know that internet therapy was a thing. And I don’t know much more than that it is a thing, and that at least one study has found it to be effective.
