    Michael had this to say on negative ions and how they help with (my) sleep and (my) True Rest. To get more even clarity, perhaps we should ask about them again. From a Private Live Chat on June 15, 2011: MEntity: In terms of True Rest, yes, there is always more one can do to bring that about. Our suggestions for True Rest, as part of your primary Pillars, can be of help, even if it is not obvious in effect, at first. In your case, reading something of value to you upon retiring is restful, as well as listening to the effects of wind (wind chimes, leaves, etc), and even hearing storms, can be restful. MEntity: All restful in a way that aligns Essence with Personality so that energy is used most effectively and restored. MEntity: These suggestions can be altered or extended to your liking, of course, so that, for instance, you are not sitting around waiting for a storm, but can listen to quality audio recordings and playbacks of a storm, or wind chimes. MEntity: One can also hang a small set of wind chimes within reach of key areas so that a quick brush or bump to them can emit the sounds that bring Rest. MEntity: Keep in mind that we are not talking about sleep here, but REST, which contributes to the quality of sleep, of course. MEntity: One can even conjure up a storm in the imagination as a means to bring about Rest. MEntity: For instance, the frustration that may come from lack of sleep can be turned into a beautiful, majestic storm of thunder and lightning so that the charge is "burned off," and True Rest can return. MEntity: Bringing an ionizing source into key areas of rest can also help, which is an extension of Storms and their physical effects on the atmosphere, which brings True Rest for you. MEntity: However, we suggest some research into the effects of ionization and the various sources for it, as the commercial elements related to this are quite messy. Maureen: Do you mean the actual physical elements in the ionizing equipment? MEntity: What we mean is that there are artificial sources of negative ions, and natural sources, and some are more effective and preferable than others, not only in general, but some may be preferred by you over others. MEntity: For instance, not all ionic air filters are designed well, and sometimes an increase in live plants can have a far greater impact on the quality of air and ions, and may be preferable. MEntity: Beeswax candles can provide effects that are similar to a "storm" when burned, as well as installed sources of the equivalent of sunlight, such as those used for terrariums and plants. MEntity: However, the sunlight equivalent may not be useful as an immediate contradiction to the ideas of a storm, but could go quite well with the sounds of wind chimes in an environment. MEntity: However you choose to implement these things, from what we have suggested, to what others are doing to help you, it would still do you well to have separate time for REST, that is not in the pressure zone of SLEEP. MEntity: The more REST that is a part of your day, which may require setting aside time just for that, like meditation, the more likely the benefit for actual sleep. MEntity: Combining our suggestions could provide rather surprising results: reading something of value to you, in the sunlight of the day, or during a storm, with the sounds of chimes nearby as ambiance. MEntity: The key would be in focusing on the part you enjoy the most at the moment: the sound? the material being read? and allow the rest to move around you, engulf you. MEntity: This is key, because it is part of the heart of your condition: that you cannot allow for distractions, but tend to focus on them. MEntity: These gentle forms of practice would do you well upon falling asleep, because your racing mind, or your racing cells, or your chattering heart can be left to do what they do, while you rest, while you sleep. MEntity: In addition to your conscious efforts, employing the substrata or unconscious elements through homeopathy and your other treatments could combine to bring great relief, eventually. MEntity: If all of this fails, you may be so exhausted from the various efforts, that you fall into sleep "naturally" after all. Maureen: LOL

    I don't care if my salt lamp emits negative ions or not. It's such a pretty and comforting light! You know what else I don't care about? Excercise. I wished he'd come the conclusion that the best way to energize oneself is by sitting on the couch. But ok. Excercise it is, then. πŸ™„πŸ˜‰

    Wow. Just.... wow. I feel a deep appreciation for being able to witness and experience this. It is beautiful. My fiance and several friends are/were professional vocalists in classical compositions and I am moved every time I hear this great art. Thank you for sharing.

    OMG, Michael was onto this long before I found this video I just posted?? This is a subject I've never given a lick of thought to but it happened to be in my YouTube feed today, so I thought it was interesting! It always freaks me out and amazes when Michael casually mentions something like this. And now I see this guy in this video talk about how Negative Ion machines produce the equivalent of toxic smog as a byproduct. Yikes! I wonder if that is true of all Negative Ion machines. And Michael Entity rocks!

    Thank you Anna Elisa. It is such a treat to hear someone make those sounds with their voice, and you make them with such ease and pleasure. It is a privelege to hear someone sing with such care, mastery and beauty and passion. I will be listening to more of your songs.

    MikeClev asked about Bob Lazar and posted it a while back (I'm not sure of the date or format.): [MikeClev] I would like to ask next about the story of Bob Lazar. He claimed to have worked in the 1980s at a top secret facility he called S4, near Area 51 in the Nevada desert, his work allegedly involved studying one of nine ET craft and technology in a hangar dug into a mountainside. He claims to have seen documents explaining the origin of the craft. He describes an antigravity propulsion system in some detail. Which parts of his story are true, if any? [MEntity] The Scholar in question appears to have some validity to his story in terms of what he was informed about, but most was not experienced in-person. His tales are a mix of embellishment, misinformation, and some facts. The parts that appear to be true are a mix of some documentation regarding the crafts, speculation for how they work, and some details of location, but most of this was informed to him, and not directly experienced.

    After his dance of joy and freedom turns to a bloodbath by a mass shooter and then after his beating on the street that leaves his family fighting and forgetting him... comes the most painful part for me: the drowning out of our existence by the arguing and fighting among others over whether we have a right to exist at all. That punches me in the gut as I watch his face because that's exactly how you have to navigate it all. You just have to look straight ahead and stay strong. This isn't unique to the LGBTQIA+ community. So many from marginalized groups know this feeling.

    Yes! Can't wait to delve into this whole other dimension! I think this long wait between seasons will be worth it - Brit and her team seem to put so much thought behind every detail. It's so great trying to find the meaning behind all of it. Such a moving and thought-provoking show πŸ‘

    @AnnaElisa, I enjoy singing (I have learned a little bit of classical this lifetime, and @Martha and I were castrati in one lifetime and we knew of each other), and I enjoy hearing someone who knows how to sing, sing with truth and their own "throat/anatomy/phrasing". I love the individuality of the expression of singing, it is a combination of technical mastery of forming those sounds with strength, proficiency and expression that I listen for. It really connects me to my essence and I can tell that you get the same essence connection. I am learning baritone ukulele which I enjoy and I play in a band.

    Has anyone had a chance to look at the Season 2 trailer of The OA? This one appears to explore a another parallel reality. I am excited and cannot wait to see it.

    I love anything that emits negative ions, and I was only in on the himalayan salt lamps because they are so gorgeous to look at, so this ticks all my boxes. Give me a storm and this lamp and I am happy.

    Wow this was... mesmerizing. It felt just like a profoundly whole body moving piece of music for me, but through dance. I remember all of the comments on the Try Guys Episodes involving Eugene said that he was just so hot (to both guys and girls). I can't help but agree. Beautiful inside and out. Ditto on what @Kasia said.

    This is beautiful and painful to watch, and had me in tears by the end. Eugene has always been my favorite of the Try Guys, but I had no idea he was such a talented dancer and artist! Thank you for sharing this, @Troy. β€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

    @AnnaElisa, my band are past the happy vibe of ukulele, we mainly do depressing country or blues songs. Lol. We are not the ukulele in the first winning glow of the relationship, we are the dumped and drinking by themselves ukulele.

    @AnnaD Wow, that's so cool that you were castrati together! Yes, I do feel very connected to my Essence when I sing. ❀️ I like the ukulele! I just can't stay sad when I here one! Tried to learn the split stroke once, but gave up! πŸ™‚

    I just finished the show -- I thought it was incredibly deep and thought-provoking. What struck me the most was this current of intimacy that runs between the characters -- it felt so familiar, like the intimacy I have with some of my closest friends and those who were at the TLE gathering. I loved that the four boys and teacher were each a "type" that would've been shallow and stereotypical in other films and shows, but their stories and struggles were explored and they were these complex and real people that chose to be vulnerable with each other. I read some interviews with Brit Marling (I get the same sort of vulnerable, intimate thoughtfulness from her as from the show), and in one of them she explains why the story was set in a Mid-West suburb. I'm so impressed by her (and the show's) exploration of the spirit in the mundane and seeing beyond the obvious. This is a real Spiritualist film, and it taught me a lot about being comfortable with the unknown (which is difficult for someone with Stubbornness).

    Very interesting to read your experience. I could probably have moved into the defense sector, there are several sites near me. The pay for being in the killing business is better than my current pay in the healing business in a hospital. I have a friend who worked for the Ministry of Defence near Bath, he told me the money was great, the work was easy, but he told me he was procuring stocks of bullets to ship out to our forces in the Middle East. The quantities were in the millions. Millions of rounds of ammunition. If even one of them kills a person I wouldn't want to be in the chain of people who took money to make it happen. No, there's no part of the military I could be happy to work for, not even office jobs. If it was a case of the survival of people around us, as in World War 2, that's a different matter. I fell into my current job by accident, but it's actually perfect for me. I am part of the chain of people fixing people up and sending them back out into the world again.

    Love the sweetness of them. But then there are shows like "Signal". πŸ˜‰ I love consuming media and art from other cultures. As a writer, it's fascinating to see the difference in tropes and story technique throughout the world. It's inspiring. With Korea, as a female writer, it's especially nice to see what a landscape of predominantly-female screenwriters looks like. (Korea's TV writers are mostly women.) It helps that Kdramas tell a full story in only one season. It's not as involving a commitment as, say, watching Stranger Things or Game of Thrones. @Rosario, it's funny, I don't consider myself a big kpop fan either. I was impressed with BTS's performances on late night TV, etc., but that was about as far as my interest went until about a month ago, when a friend got me into a group called GOT7. It's funny how you describe that BTS feels like a Movement to you. I feel like Korea has such an interestingly interactive way of promoting their artists. I can see the seeds of what the Michaels say is our future (doing away with privacy) in how kpop idols promote themselves. With American artists I like, I tend to like them because of the music. Or, in Beyonce's case, because of her dancing, her incredible voice, and her poise (a lot of her actual music isn't to my taste, but I adore her artistry). With this kpop group I've gotten into, I got into them because I liked their music and dancing (kpop dancing is insane)... but what really seems to be resonating with me is their candidness and care. They're very funny, and it's clear they truly enjoy each other's company. So though I got into them for their music, and I love pretty much all of their B-sides, their place in my life acts more as support than as muses (musicians are usually muses for me). When I've had a bad day, or when I feel bogged down in all that's awful in the world, their fun and funny Sage energy, or their loving care for one another, act as a healing antidote. I think without that interactive, reality-show-like Korean promotion that lets me get to know them, I'd just add them to my playlist and leave it at that.

    Hi ! @Bakwe Chokoe I'm not into kpop, but into BTS, hehe! To me they are a whole new genre. A Movement, even!! :') πŸ˜„ and I also enjoy kdramas from time to time ❀️ lovely lighthearted plots and endearing characters. @Becca the Student I also think he meant South Korea πŸ˜„

    This video WRECKED me. It was so beautifully done. @Troy , same regarding the ending with everyone yelling and arguing. It's such a prevalent theme in our world today. So much arguing, so little change. Makes me wanna flip tables then go hibernate until folks get their heads out of the sand. *hugs to everyone*

    According to Michael's layout of likely potential outcomes for the future, one of the major probabilities (though not the most likely) is a catastrophic impact event. I don't think that's shaping up to happen in our timeline, but presumably one of these asteroids' trajectories is/was different in other parallels.

    I found Hap's character interesting. He was kind of living vicariously through OA and the rest of the lab rats experiences of death. God the episode when the cop busts Hap in Hap's home was high suspense. The relationship between OA and Homer. Mike who was revived by the 5movements. I went on to the writer/actress and her co writer's twitter feed and said please create another season. I wanted to but didn't, direct them here to TLE. I didn't direct them here because it is a public message and any old trump voting oxygen thief could read it. So I instead cryptically intoned, the Journey of your Soul. I also said that this show has a massive audience with my community and I left it at that. Doing Gods work etc.
