DIY: How to Start Seeing Magnetic Fields

(*Unless you count the magnetic fieldAinside those photons that you use to see things.)>

Information Overload

How to deal with information overload? Consume information consciously, practice attention fitness and breathe.

"As long as the centuries continue to unfold, the number of books will grow continually, and one can predict that a time will come when it will be almost as difficult to learn anything from books as from the direct study of the whole universe. It will be almost as convenient to search for some bit of truth concealed in nature as it will be to find it hidden away in an immense multitude of bound volumes." - Denis Diderot>

Talking to Yourself is Good?

Two things. First, in giving words to (or writing onto paper) an issue and adding the clarity and clarifications required to make something understandable to someone else has the same impact on your other-than-conscious. You may think that you're being clear about an issue in your head, but you rarely are. You're more likely to be half articulating the issue and then immediately looping into theA same consciously derived result you keep on getting which is failing to remove the problem or blocker.

And this is the second point. By talking to yourself (again, words or paper is good - words may be better because of how unusual you may experience the sensation), your conscious brain gives a clear set of instructions to your other-than-conscious brain. You ask yourself the question and often answer it very quickly yourself because the totality of your resources (conscious and unconscious) are now engaged to a common endeavour (and in most cases, you knew the answer to the problem: it just needed unlocking by you being clear with yourself)>

Logical Fallacies and the Art of Debate

This is a guide to using logical fallacies in debate. And when I say "using," I don’t mean just pointing them out when opposing debaters commit them — I mean deliberately committing them oneself, or finding ways to transform fallacious arguments into perfectly good ones.

Snipers Succeed by Missing Their Targets

Zeroing involves shooting your rifle, observing where the bullet hit, making the appropriate adjustments and then repeating the process. To complicate matters, snipers need to continually readjust and shift their zero because changes in climate, wind, elevation and the temperature of the barrel will all affect the bullet's trajectory.

So snipers spend the majority of their time learning from their misses. A common quote is that snipers will shoot 5,000 shots in training for every one that counts in combat. Those 5,000 shots provide the sniper with invaluable DOPE on their gun (DOPE is an acronym for Data On Previous Engagements). One important distinction is that they focus on engagements - not hits or misses. Because both will happen over the course of sniping.>
