Perfect Girl

Beautiful, sharp eyes with skin so soft and deliciously white, caramel tinted. Top that with barely visible freckles on her face.

What more could I possibly ask for? Imagination, a strong personality, an inspiring mind, dedication to scientific advancement, and passionate for enabling the use of Artificial Intelligence in scientific discovery in other earth sciences.

Man, forget it, just wanna hang around with you on some beach. Babe.

Biological Organ

No! No! No! This can't be just a lump of lipids inside of someone's head. This is the human brain, the cause of the effect which we are used to call the mind, this is the most sophisticated organ in the body.
I am thinking of those people whose brains are not organized, who only seem to have challenges learning new things or adapting to new conditions. The seem helpless and unhelpable but I don't want to consider anything other than that they can help themselves and be helped.
There must be a trigger, something to ignite a change in the brain that'll make everything organized that will result in the evolution of one's brain into a smart brain, one that is able to tackle challenges and solve problems.
Maybe I should study neuroscience.

What's this about?

Something's pushing my brain out of my head. I feel pressure on the sides and the ceiling of this repulsive skull. I feel sand or angry I'm not sure... Maybe both. I don't like it when I don't like seeing people that I don't like.
I don't want to be understood. I want to stop being irritated. Yes I am a Gemini and I do want to love* every girl I see. Provocative, I'm aggravated.
Time for metal music? "My heart's a grave yard baby... and to evil we make love..." Passion's Killing Floor - HIM
I love Scorpions because they have really good music. Lolerei. You gotta a problem with that? I feel I want to start a fight, oh which reminds me by  the way of a song called "Getting Away With Murder" for Papa Roach, it says "I feel irrational, so confrontational, [forgot the words], because I'm getting away with murder!" Good song. Better mood. Hang over? Yesterday was fine! Mmmm.
I need to call some people... I don't have the time. I need to do some work I said I'll commit to, but obviously I didn't.
So what's this about? People I love. There are many.

Brain extended

I'm not a neuroscientist but I have this idea. The brain is a network of neuronal cells (neurons) that is structured in an amazing and hard to comprehend manner.
The main point that I want to say is that why do we always eliminate the possibility that other parts of our body participate in the thinking and planning processes which are the main functions of the mind when we talk about the brain, what it is and what's part of it.
Since the brain is a group of connected cells, and sensor and control neurons that go to other body parts such as the heart, the hands, etc are connected to it, then they might also participate (for at least a limited extent) in the control, thinking and perception functions of the brain.

Update Feb 15th, 2012 [Draft update]:
For example, consider the fact that you can't think clearly and work on your math problems if your leg hurts. But why? A person doesn't think with their leg's nerves but they are connected to the CNS and affect its functioning. This is why continuous pain infliction could cause brain damage.

As a way to illustrate further the consequences of thinking in this direction, consider an infant  whose mental development occurred without the effects of the physical. How would their thinking be different that if they developed with the physical including pain, sexual gratification and others were involved.

One of my friends told me that some project human beings body's will evolve in a way such that they won't have limbs. What will happen to the parts of the brain that works to control these? They won't disappear but they will be utilized and they will be invoked to address other brain functions. Perhaps some that aren't currently mapped to any brain part.

Fat and the Brain

I came across this title while in the library: "Survival of the fattest: The Key to Human Brain Evolution". I wondered what this strangely titled book was about so I started with the cover and contents where I found the description of part 1: The Human Brain: Unique Yet Vulnerable.

The author says "Beginning with an introduction to human evolution and plasticity of the human brain, it turns to the brain's high energy requirements and the unique role of body fat as energy insurance for the developing brain for babies."

Bill Gates wrote in his first annual letter for his charity foundation that poor people are the least empowered to solve their problems. I find it appealing to relate this fact to the other fact that most kids in Africa are 'starvingly' thin. So a bag of rice really makes a difference and once people get enough to eat they'll have enough brain-power to solve their problems.

Take care and eat healthy. Our brains still need energy.

I'm reposting this as I am revisiting my role as a simple human being in solving the issues relating to poverty and other basic issues that human beings still face.

A conversation with a person X

Hi Mazin. Keefak? Ana embare7 blah blah blah and then blah blah blah [Mazin: tries to fake his desire to listen by trying to synthesize something useful to say but it’s really hard to respond to lots of blah blah blah. My attempts to respond are bombarded by another series of blahs that begin uniquely as follows]: Oh, you make me remember! That guys has a blah blah blah then his friend is blah with a blah and by the way there’s that blah blah that does a really interesting blah blah.

X is getting more excited about the perfection of the blah world with all the blah details. And this conversation will not stop so please go do something useful and leave me deal with it, I sacrifice myself so that you [the reader] go do something useful.

Mazin is immersed in that blah world and he starts to lose attention and consciousness. He is cast into a very distant and imaginary world and suddenly a seemingly random expression expressing amazement is rendered among the infinite stream of blahs, like this:

X: blah blah blah and blah… Hahahah this is so funny, blah blah blah blah and [Person Name] and X's friend blah blah. Mazin says “Wow.” And looks into the distance contemplating the imaginary world and X is more excited because X thinks that Mazin actually possesses the ability to listen to all what X says. UNFORTUNATELY I CAN’T! It’s just a rule of physics I guess, but I JUST CAN’T! It’s beyond my mental ability. But the powers of blahs are instatiable and they go on and on and on.

X: Listen remind me later to tell you about that pile of blahs that I have for you. Now let’s talk seriously about business.
Mazin: [I say to myself, finally, X is appreciating the concept of time.]
X: So let’s take this perspective when we talk about this project… [Interrupted by some guy, girl or whatever that is] Oh hey [person name], blah blah and bye. X continues: Sorry this guy talks much but I want to talk business so I’m going to talk to him later, blah and blah, you see I hate to talk a lot and I’m not like this all the time. But you see we have to talk about work because work is important and because we shouldn’t waste our time talking about blah and blah and yeah remind me to tell you about this blah blah that keeps on doing blah blah and you look just like him and he has blah blah. And with regards to blah blah that is related to our work it's blah blah also just like that.

Mazin: I think I’m going to permanently move to the imaginary world that I have created. Please wish me luck there.

X: blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah....

Sorry X, but I’m just expressing my frustration from wasting lots of brain cycles on this. Please consider upgrading your software.
