I always used to think that because I have brown eyes it made me see things with a dark tinge so I wanted a brighter colour like blue or green or even gold I recently found out that this is probably a psychological effect of having untreated depression for so many years since I was a child These da...

I am confused about a few things on wrong planet, such as why are some threads sticky and others not? Feel free to answer this question, or post a new one here! It's just a way of keeping the information prominent. Sometimes it's about policy and sometimes it's because the thread would result in a ...

Hello folks Just wanting some feedback from those of us that have had (or are having) therapy from a psychologist. The psych who diagnosed my ASD mentioned that more common types for therapy like CBT are not so effective or even appropriate for people on the spectrum. My current psych wants to do S...

I understand most social cues, but I have severe problems with social-emotional reciprocity. Why is only understanding social cues not enough? I tend to show abnormal facial expressions to a mild degree and some abnormal body language as well. It takes a few minutes for people to find out that I ha...

Why do we buy stuff to impress other people? Because other people are impressed with the stuff we buy. Next question. There's been a bit of a trend that I've been noticing lately of people asking tautalogical questions. People buy things to impress people so that those people will be impressed. Peo...

The higher the IQ the less likely it is to be verifiable. At a certain point that area of intelligence is so high that it's no longer the bottleneck. For me, the IQ, specifically pattern matching components, are probably why it took so long for the autistic traits to become obvious enough to invest...

Yes, however the enforcement may not be evenly applied. It will likely vary a bit depending on the locality, but usually you don't have laws like that specifying genders or sexes. At least not in the developed world, I'm sure there are some countries using religious rules as the basis for laws that ...

So I was just wondering... A series of questions... what's the deal with IQ "off the charts" What does it mean to have a IQ over 200? 300? does it get progressively less and less accurate? One person was said to have an IQ of 400. But is that measurable, and if it is, what does it mean? A...

another, perhaps more appropriate options is called a "sexual surrogate." plus, if you have a good therapist, they can help with sexual/relationship issues and increase your chances of finding a sexual partner. But of course, this doesn't always work. And so I turn to this... https://www....

The Zen Experience by Thomas Hoover


what is that book about?

It's a history of Zen starting with Indian Buddhism. Along the way it talks a bit about the basis for the study of koans, which is often what these sorts of meditations are ultimately about.

You don’t need to have mutual consent in order to say “no” to sex for any length of time. I wouldn’t bring up that scripture because it could make a person feel obligated or compelled to do something they don’t want to do. Our bodies are our own and no one else’s. That seems to be the central issue...

three bullet thoughts: 1.what does it mean to meditate on the concept of 0 and one? 2. what can you learn by thinking about these two numbers in terms of what they potentially mean conceptually? 3. Can anyone provide a list of 10 or more potential thoughts they have when they think about these numb...

Honestly you have a point. Things have been getting kind of heated on here. Particulary between me and fnord. One of the best lessons I learned about the internet came from XKCD. https://xkcd.com/386/ At a certain point, everybody involved is so dug in that nobody is going to change their minds, an...

Facebook is the only means of communication I have with at least 3 friends. Suggest moving to email, or a private whatsapp group. If they're real friends, they'll be fine with that. Yes, not just that, but what happens if they move off of the platform? Regardless of the answer, FB has way too much ...
