The Voyager Within

“Not only is the universe queerer than we imagine, it is queerer than we can imagine.”

—   J.B.S. Haldane

“I am not a poet,
I’m just a person
in love with the forest.
When I touch the trees
they fall into leaves,
the way I touched you
and you vanished into words.”

—   Pavana पवन (via maza-dohta)

Life is capable of driving you out of your mind. The way it all comes down these days, it’s some kind of miracle if you’re not insane. People have become separated from their bodies. They are no longer whole. I see them move from their offices to their cars and on to their suburban homes. They stress out constantly, they lose sleep, they eat badly. And they behave badly. Their egos run wild; they become motivated by that which will eventually give them a massive stroke. They need the Iron mind.

Through the years, I have combined meditation, action, and the Iron into a single strength. I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind. The Iron is the best antidepressant I have ever found. There is no better way to fight weakness than with strength. Once the mind and body have been awakened to their true potential, it’s impossible to turn back.

The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go.

But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.

“So many people are afraid of love. So many people wear a heart condom. They don’t open themselves fully to the idea of love and they suffer for it. People attach their fear of love to objectifying the people they have sex with and say ‘oh yeah I fucked this hot bitch last night’. The same way you wear a regular condom out of a fear of aids is the way these people wear a heart condom out of a fear of love. They wear this thick rubbery sheet they call their ego and their personality around their heart. Ride somebody bareback with your heart. Pull of the fucking sheath and feel it!”

“There’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now.”

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”

The SWEEPS Field - A Massive Star Survey 
The Sagittarius Window Eclipsing Extrasolar Planet Search, or SWEEPS, was a 2006 astronomical survey project using the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys - Wide Field Channel to monitor 180,000 stars for seven days to detect extrasolar planets via the transit method.

The stars that were monitored in this astronomical survey were all located in the Sagittarius-I Window, a rare transparent view to the Milky Way’s central bulge stars in the Sagittarius constellation as our view to most of the galaxy’s central stars is blocked by lanes of dust. These stars in the galaxy’s central bulge region are approximately 27,000 light years from Earth.
