Faith is often confused with intention because sub-human primates enjoy simulating concern.

So then /eau de toilette/ must be the lighter variant, for the fairer sex.

Anyways, before this goes all off topic.  Great post on brain washing - literally hours of cycles for me.  I love that feeling of coolness that washes over before going gentle into that sweet sleep.  Now I know that may literally be happening - sleep is cool French laundry for the soul.

Maybe, if the gum had muscle relaxants in it, like a wafer, given the effect it has on paraspinal muscle blood flow [ncbi.nlm.nih.g*v/pubmed/18344850]

But back to neuroscience: I wonder if the same shrinking of neurons and brain-washing (brain-washing!) that occurs in sleep also happens in deep meditation? I expect it would.

Was thinking about that and then, reluctantly, cranio-sacral therapy.  It may not be science, tho IIRC, the method purports to improve CSF circulation.  This would help clean the fluid that washes the brain, perhaps (c) (Traditional Discordian Medicine)

Wait.

By what mechanism do you imagine that rubbing the scalp shrinks neurons, exactly?

We were thinking of cranio- sacral as an adjunct to sleep, not a substitute.  If the washing depends on CSF flowing through the brain, because of sleep, then, cranio-sacral would help circulation to the brain and back, from the lower spine and such.  This helps filtration to prevent washing the brain with "dirty" fluid, hypothetically.  I don't know if CST is considered science, but it seems to work that way.

I find the definition of recognition can sometimes be more unsettling than its absence.

The fascinating thing about her suggestion is that the point of the program is to provide field research experience for me, not to enrich my children's life experiences.

And then it was shortly followed up by another guy lamenting that it's only an 11-day program and not a 6-month program. Jesus fucking christ people, I just want to get accepted to the program I actually applied for, not some hypothetical 6-month program where I can bring my children. Let me at least get accepted to the thing I WANT before starting in on how it's too bad it isn't something else entirely.

I also used to behave like that, sometimes.  It's envy that masks itself with a disparaging comparison.  They will resist the idea that they actually resent you for nearly living their dreams.  The best response I found is to say "I'm so jealous" re: something they do.

They have a shit ton of brown tree snakes as well, don't they?

Yes, and the spiders eat those too.  :kingmeh:

Uh, I'm not so sure about that, especially given they're about 3-6 feet long.  My understanding was that brown tree snakes ate all the birds which used to hunt spiders, leading to a population explosion, and the only animals which feed on the brown tree snakes are red-bellied black snakes and cane toads.  The former is...not terrible, as far as Australian snakes and invasive species go, but the latter...
The bufo marinus was a bad choice, it's just too prolific.  Other large toads have more specific breeding profiles, though this also restricts their yearly net consumption.  They don't eat much during periods of non-reproduction.
