an IQ actualization day

the year 2017 ends today and i thought to post an actualization story.

one morning late last year while leaving my farm to head into town, feeling elated at the elated state of mind from nootropics that morning, i was on the phone with my brother and described my elated state of mind then thought to ask him an actualization question.

what would you do today if you discovered you’d awaken with an IQ of 200? he paused long. “well i’d start doing the things i’ve dreamed about. starting a new career, earn well, finish school, and enjoy my time staying at home.” ok i said. what if you awoke to an IQ of 170? another long pause guess he was imagining where this was going. “well hmm… basically the same. start a new career and go to school”. then i progress to ask him about awakening with an IQ of 150, 120, then finally with the IQ he currently has. mind you, i’m an ardent critic of the nature of means by which an IQ test is administered but it remains a basic assessment of our accumulated knowledge. “ya i guess it’s the same answer”. by then i asked him “so… why aren’t you doing that now?”.

we both laughed it off but the philosophical implication remains stuck like an alien creature attached to my brain. why aren’t i doing that and why doesn’t everyone? it’s been over a year now and i think i found a simple answer aside from the typical response “well i got stuff to do today…” kind of response. the answer for myself is to decide options today based on principal. as a Taoist seeing the value of my day as decisions i’ve made when my head lays to rest is germane to my thought DNA. small decisions based on principals i’ve adopted, as basic as they may appear, form small action steps working toward long term personal goals and shape a purpose to my being.

day 3 of a 24/7 zen-like state of mind vegan diet

diet_wrist_bands_20per

am on day 3 of a 24/7 induced zen-like state of mind vegan diet variation. my 12 year old niece handed me seven of these bands she created. hope to replace the expedient plastic bands with colorful hemp fibers. hope to earn a third today. the first day of a diet is always the hardest. having performed this diet twenty years ago with only lentil sprouts and water for thirty days, i knew at at the very least a 24/7 induced zen-like of mind begins on the third day. the bands are a helpful visual feel good reminder to keep to the diet. a Google Music subscription is playing a yoga meditation radio station. the absence of ads is peaceful. i’m feeling peaceful. it gets better as the days progress.

i’ll loose any sense of humor. a zen-like state places my mind to absorb news of tragic events without the twists and turns to humor. the later being like heat energy and the concomitant opportunity costs. in a zen-like state of mind, the minds eye becomes keenly aware of life forces and the law of attraction being a natural given, attention of the minds eye can translate to light energy.

this diet is an experiment to accentuate the effects of nootropics i’ve haphazardly discovered to date with a zen-like state of mind lentil diet experiment i lived twenty years ago.

below is a quick synopsis of the diet intended for days Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. the rest days are essential to keep homeostasis. for a busy schedule, you can alternate between nootropic and rest days regardless of the day of week.
