Default Free Diving...Guillaume Néry Julie Gautier


One Breath Around The World

Guillaume Néry

"NEW FILM: Our new short film (12 min) is finally out.
Turn out the light, put your headphones and freedive
with me around the world

This great adventure was possible thanks to the support
of a great team* Julie Gautier, my wife. One more
time she did an AMAZING work. Everything she is shooting
with her camera become magic. Of course, she shot as usual
all the images on breath hold!..."

Default Free Diver William Trubridge


"This is why I free dive": A journey into the deep | William Trubridge | TEDxChristchurch


"Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hold your breath for
minutes on end, descending 300 feet and more under water?
In this extraordinary talk -- part meditation, part heart-stopping adventure
-- world champion freediver William Trubridge not only takes you there, but
offers a profound answer to the question: "Why do you do it?"

In 2005 William was the first freediver to dive at Dean's Blue Hole,
now recognised as the world's premier freediving venue and site of the
annual Vertical Blue event.
There he broke his first world record in the discipline of
CNF (Constant Weight No Fins) in April 2007, diving to 81m.
Since then he has broken this record multiple times. In 2010 he
became the first human to descend to 100m (330 feet) during
Project Hector, an event aimed at bringing awareness to the plight
of New Zealand's critically endangered Hector's and Maui's Dolphins
species. In July 2016 he furthered this record to 102m (334 feet) as
part of the Steinlager "Born to Defy" project, which was broadcast
live to New Zealand television. William also holds the world record in
Free Immersion, with 124m (406 feet), set at Vertical Blue in May 2016.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format
but independently organized by a local community...."

Default Toxicity of Social Media III

I deleted my instagram before I came across this video and
others and it has helped...deleted fb long time ago. For me, it's
2019, a new year and time for a big change in how I have used
social media for my business. Food for thought.

Sean Parker, Chamath Palihapitiya - Facebook is 'Ripping Apart Society'

Greco

Sean Parker, ex-Facebook President on Nov 8th warns
how the site was deliberately designed to exploit human vulnerability:
1:06 - "God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains."


1:21 - "That thought process was all about: 'How do we consume
as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'

And that means that we need to...give you a little dopamine hit every
once in a while [via likes, etc]...and that's going to get you to
contribute more content, and that's going to get you...more likes
and comments. It's a social validation feedback loop."


2:01 - "...the...creators [of fb]... understood this consciously, and
we did it anyway."

2:20 - Part 2
Chamath Palihapitiya joined Facebook as a developer when
the company was about a year old, becoming VP for User Growth.
His warning from Nov 10th:

2:33 - "The entire society is set up to not be patient anymore."

3:06 - "Consumer internet businesses are about exploiting psychology."
3:54 - "I feel tremendous guilt"
[over Facebook’s exploitation of consumer behavior ...its divisive
effect on society] ...


“Even though we feigned this whole line
of, like, ‘There probably aren’t any really bad unintended
consequences,’ I think in the back, deep, deep recesses of
our minds, we kind of knew something bad could happen,”

4:23 - “...we have created tools that are ripping apart the
social fabric of how society works. That is truly where we are.”

4:42 - “If you feed the beast, that beast will destroy you.
If you push back on it, we have a chance to control it and
rein it in.

And it is a point in time where people need to hard break
from some of these tools and the things that you rely on.
The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have
created are destroying how society works.


No civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth.
And it's not an American problem. This is not about Russian
ads. This is a global problem.

So we are in a really bad state of affairs right now, in my opinion.

It is eroding the core foundations of how people behave by, and
between, each other. And I don't have a good solution.


You know, my solution is I just don't use these tools anymore.
I haven't for years. It's created huge tension with my friends.
Huge tensions in my social circles.”

5:55 - "... I... innately didn't want to get programmed, and
so I just tuned it out. ... And now to see what is happening, it
really bums me out."

6:41 - "...bad actors can now manipulate large swathes of people
to do anything you want."

6:58 - "...we compound the problem. ... We curate our lives
around this perceived sense of perfection because we get rewarded
in these short-term signals: hearts, likes, thumbs up.

And we conflate that with value, and we conflate it with truth.
And instead what it really is is fake brittle popularity
- that's short term, and that leaves you even more, and
admit it, vacant and empty [than] before you did it, because i
t forces you into this vicious cycle where you're
like, 'What's the next thing I need to do now?'
'cause I need it back.

Think about that compounded by 2 billion people. And then think
about how people react to the perceptions of others. It's
just... really, really bad."

7:51 - "I did a great job there [at Facebook], and I think that
business overwhelmingly does positive good in the world."

8:08 - "I can control my decisions, which is 'I don't use this shit.'
I can control my kids' decisions which is
'they're not allowed to use this shit.' ...

But everybody else has to soul search a little bit more about
what you're willing to do, because your behaviors...

You don't realize it, but you are being programmed."
9:05 - "Start by turning off your social apps and giving your
brain a break.

'Cause then you will at least be a little bit more motivated
to not be motivated by what everybody else fuckin thinks
about you."

9:18 - "...posting your fucking waffles online... is wiring
your brain for superfast feedback. ... So you're training
your brain here, whether you think it or not...

These things where you're spending hours a day are
rewiring your psychology and physiology..."

10:09 - "There's a reason why Steve Jobs was, like,
anti-social media.

I am telling you I am not on these fucking apps."


10:19 - "...I am proactively trying to rewire my
brain chemistry to not be short-term focused."


Sean Parker's talk is from the Axios event in Philadelphia
w/Mike Allen, Nov 8, 2017.

Chamath Palihapitiya's talk is from two days later, Nov 10, 2017
at Stanford. He is an owner of the Golden State Warriors and a venture capitalist.

Default Quit Social Media


Quit social media | Dr. Cal Newport | TEDxTysons

"Cal Newport is an Assistant Professor
of Computer Science at Georgetown University.
In addition to studying the theoretical foundations
of our digital age, Newport also writes about the
impact of these technologies on the world of work.
His most recent book, "Deep Work", argues that
focus is the new I.Q. in the modern workplace and
that the ability to concentrate without distraction
is becoming increasingly valuable.
He previously
wrote So Good They Can’t Ignore You, a book which
debunks the long-held belief that “follow your passion”
is good advice, and three popular books of unconventional
advice for students.

Default Deeper life...

Deeper life at 2020

I

Hy walked as if in a dream
Remembering the love, the sensuality, the desire.

Climbing the steps to hys studio
seeing hys new work in his mind’s eye, and how

different hy felt about the process, about the models.

Today’s model was elegant, great almond eyes of black.
Eyebrows naturally graceful.

And quiet. So quiet. But the seething intensity of her
life force filling completely the studio

Filling completely hys desire to capture all of this Beauty.


Hy did not carry a cellular phone, never.

Remembering the talk with this Beauty on the
street, 6 ft away and her almond
eyes glorious above her mask.

The date and time was set.

This day hy would sketch her, paint her, leaving
the clay to feel her energy slowly, ever so slowly.
There would be time.

The seventh decade of her life real.

The seventh decade of her life, fierce.


Hys fingers itched to feel the pencil carving her
face across the paper.

Commanding the paint to interpret her passion.


II

The Time came and she was there on the other side of
the door, ringing the bell.

Hy opened the door.

Keeping hys distance from her, hy gave her entrance.

Hy indicated where she will sit.
Her black almond eyes exceptionally
bright. Hys gut alive with feeling.

Hy put the board on the easel.
She sat quiet, looking hys way,

Hy turned on the classical music, low, barely
perceptible.

The session had begun in silence,
in passionate silence.

They both knew what was to come.[/FONT]
