Re: Who are you?
True listening eventually provides all knowledge for consideration.
This is beyond claiming or potentially being a "good listener"
This is the 'why' not understood, before the reactionary problems, our world community encounters.
Listening can be auditory and/or transitional from other input sources, i.e., visual reading is transferred to one's mind-voice for interpretation.
Even a hearing or sight disabled individual has a mindful voice in whatever 'language' they uniquely come to understand. A 'language,' it is estimated, no one else can or may know.
So, I mean to be a listener, a continual absorber of information/knowledge. Base on this, I strive to prevent problems vs. having to overcome them. I work to "not start part way in" based on MY experience, MY (incomplete) knowledge, MY (biased)opinions, instead start from a true beginning with each individual/situation encountered. Creating an increased ratio for agreement, due to the increased ratio of understanding is the answer to all we conflict over.
New research links urban planning and political polarization.
- Canadian researchers find that excessive reliance on cars changes political views.
- Decades of car-centric urban planning normalized unsustainable lifestyles.
- People who prefer personal comfort elect politicians who represent such views.
It turns out the human scalp has an olfactory receptor that seems to play a crucial role in regulating hair follicle growth and death.
- Scientists treated scalp tissue with a chemical that mimics the odor of sandalwood.
- This chemical bound to an olfactory receptor in the scalp and stimulated hair growth.
- The treatment could soon be available to the public.
Science and the squishiness of the human mind. The joys of wearing whatever the hell you want, and so much more.
- Why can't we have a human-sized cat tree?
- What would happen if you got a spoonful of a neutron star?
- Why do we insist on dividing our wonderfully complex selves into boring little boxes
