Fasting 16:8 and exercising a lot but not losing weight?

2023.05.31 01:09 Ldntn Fasting 16:8 and exercising a lot but not losing weight?

(30F) I’ve been doing IF for the last couple of months religiously with only a few days off here and there, maybe once a fortnight. I eat well and healthily making most meals from scratch, but don’t deny myself a little treat if I want it. I do burn an average of 2300 cals per day.
I work out 5/6 days a week, sometimes twice a day, usually a 5k run, weightlifting or HIIT classes.
I’ve noticed a bit more definition in my body but my scales fluctuate between 59-62kg (I’m 5’7 / 170cm for reference) and never seem to move from there.
I would have thought after 2 months I would see some weight loss but I’m not and it’s starting to get me down. It seems like I’m putting in all of this effort for no payoff. Has anybody else had a similar experienced and figured out the issue? I don’t know anybody else who does IF so nobody in my personal life to ask.

2023.05.31 01:09 chaseylane1 Pay it

Sorry it auto corrected it should be titled “Pay cut”
I am having trouble recently with my anxiety d/t recent job. I switched specialties but it’s not helping. I’m getting help with anxiety but am miserable. Offered a remote job with no patient contact. The down side it’s only about 3/4 of the pay I’m currently making . I could pick up more hours and luckily I have a spouse so I’d still be fine. Is it worth it to stay in nursing? I feel like I’ve burned out on hands on especially starting off in high mentally stressful specialties in the start of covid. While I know remote can be stressful the idea of not being hands on sounds awesome at this point. Anyone ever made the switch and been happy?

One of my ignition coils burned the other day and figured I might as well upgrade. I’m relatively stock, few fbo and evo 9 turbo but do plan for future mods. What cop kit would be the best? Also is it something I can just do in my garage? I figured it would be but maybe I’m missing something, any advice is appreciated.

2023.05.31 01:04 Lost_Yellow_9893 Advice for getting the spark back for a WIP?

I’m on the first draft of a story that’s very special to me; it’s a romantic-comedy vampire story. I have the whole story outlined and have written about half of it. I love the story and I want to work on it. I used to be able to sit there and write for hours, but now I feel like my inspiration has abandoned me.
I figure it’s some kind of burn out or writers block, but I don’t know what to do. I took a few days off of writing and even went out of town for a fun day, but it hasn’t helped. Working on my story was so therapeutic and fulfilling, I feel like shit now that I’m stuck. I still have plenty of ideas for the story, I’m just struggling to get sentences out, I guess. I’ve also already tried making playlists, a Pinterest board and rereading the parts which I’m most proud of. Bleh :(

2023.05.31 01:04 JewsEatFruit Why is it the worse I look, the more people flirt with me?

I went shopping today with DGAF greasy bedhead, about 9 days due for a beard shave/trim, wearing flip flops that should have been thrown out 3 years ago with one strap missing on just the left foot, paint- and espresso- stained sweatpants with multiple cigar burn holes... and I got so much attention from both men and women it made my head spin.
A woman 25 years younger than me couldn't sell me the bathing suit I wanted because they didn't even have my style. She gave me about 4 suggestions in the mall where I could look and then told me if I found one, I could come back and model it for her. I later ended up at thrift and within 3 seconds of walking in a dude was like "heyyyy painty pants :) looks like you've been working hard today".
This kind of overly-friendly attention carried on through grocery shopping and dollar store.
Normally I dress pretty well because idk I just like to. But this almost NEVER happens when I dress the way I normally do. Today was an anomaly and I couldn't help but notice the crazy difference.
What. The. F.

2023.05.31 01:03 Bm2415582 Does anyone else frequently get talked over?

I've noticed it more and more since it started bothering me. I'll be in the middle of a thought, or a sentence even, and people will cut in and talk over me, louder and possibly unaware of how rude they're being. I feel frustrated because I like to finish what I was saying, like everybody else does, but I think I'm the sort to only talk when I have something meaningful to say, so it somehow burns more this way. I'm not chatty. But somehow, when I do choose to speak, somebody is there to cut me off. At that point I just reduce myself to a chorus of 'mhm's and 'yup's and 'wow's in hopes they'll maybe let me talk again, or, I don't know, take a breath! Is this a neurotypical thing or do I just work with people who talk too much and are much too passionate in casual conversation. My mask has granted me the ability to be calm and reserved, even when talking about my special interests/hyper fixations. But sometimes I genuinely want to cry from frustration with how often it happens. I've started correcting people but it's somehow made it worse. (Ironically this has become long-winded and passionate. Hope you can get a word in edgewise lol)

2023.05.31 01:03 PokingDogSnouts 32 [M4F] New Jersey/New York — Where have all the flowers gone?

I'd like to find somebody thoughtful, someone who isn't superficial. Somebody who appreciates the rich vastness of our shared multicultural past, and freely follows her curiosity in exploring it. Somebody who is trying her best to adhere to the guidance of her inner moral compass, and isn't so easily fooled by the distractions and illusions of the world.
One such illusion, that must immediately be mentioned (this is important, because it's led to a break for me, in the past): religion. Religion is man-made, and not of any higher authority. The Bible and the Quran all permit slavery—in addition to countless other horrid and divisive ideas—while claiming to be eternal wisdom, and that is indefensible. I still like to believe in the idea of some permeating higher morality, that imbues us with our general sense for justice, fairness, and empathy...but, I know that without outright proof, even my holding of such a notion can be deemed a flight of fancy, a residual remnant of a system so entrenched. However, it seems to me that life is often more than just what's on the surface. Um, but now, then—back to the person I wish to know...
I'd also love it if she were artistic. Singing, sketching, painting, writing, composing, creating. Someone who is trying to nurture their talents and passions. I know it can be difficult...
As for me, well... I adore music. Mostly voices from the past (the 1960s would have to be my favorite), because I find them to be humbler and more from the heart, at least in popular music. I’ll just give an example of something I’ve looked into, and this is nowhere near representative of my wider taste, but if you go back to early 1920s country music... (Here's an aside: a lot of what people think of as "country" today is a long cry from what the genre is actually like, historically. If you are into folk music—Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan—it is indelibly linked to "country", and if you'd like a popular example of a song that originated within the genre, look no further than the universally recognized "You Are My Sunshine", from 1939!)
Anyway. If you go back to that early period, where undiscovered niches of music were still sought out and first put to tape... a lot of those artists had no idea about anything to do with recording—no ego, no attempt to sound "cool". What came through instead was a bare expression of the life that had been lived—the inner beauty of their own personhood, and I love hearing that. It's so honest. A vulnerable and piercing expression.
So if you're into history or the beautiful music of decades (and centuries) past, if you have any aspirations for creating as a method of changing the world for the better, if you'd like to play games and watch movies together, if you'd like an accountability partner—or all of the above...please message me. I don't mind the chat function, either—in fact, it's probably easier. Also, to get this out of the way: this is what I look like.
I love beautiful things. Nature, music that tugs at your heartstrings or is so honest you're enraptured, experiences that heal. More specifically, here are some of my current interests:
To close... I suppose I should say I've been afflicted with long-COVID for over two years. It'd be very nice to keep each other company, especially if we share any of the interests up above—we could watch favorite films, have shared listening sessions on Spotify, and it'd be a godsend to find somebody up to play on PS4 and Switch! Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 on the secret hard modes, maybe? Or sculpting our own world from scratch in Minecraft? Or maybe we could act out Ocarina of Time's storyline using all the options available on Smash Ultimate!
I'd really like to know an intelligent person with a unique identity...who puts forth effort—though at the same time, no pressure on reaching out. If you are this type of person, but can currently only muster up a few words because, hey! Life is tough, and grueling, and we don't always have a ready-made letter in us to flip out of our pockets—don't be scared away by my tower of words. I absolutely know, firsthand, what it's like to want to communicate, yet not currently have the energy or the mindpower for it. Life can really sink you... I promise I will not judge. Please send me a chat message, if you're at all interested in chatting.

2023.05.31 01:02 GetTherapyBham Book Review of Lament of the Dead: Psychology after Jung’s The Red Book by James Hillman and Sonu Shamdasani

“The years, of which I have spoken to you, when I pursued the inner images, were the most important time of my life. Everything else is to be derived from this. It began at that time, and the later details hardly matter anymore. My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me. That was the stuff and material for more than only one life. Everything later was merely the outer classification, the scientific elaboration, and the integration into life. But the numinous beginning, which contained everything, was then.”\
― C.G. Jung, preface for The Red Book: Liber Novus
James Hillman: I was reading about this practice that the ancient Egyptians had of opening the mouth of the dead. It was a ritual and I think we don’t do that with our hands. But opening the Red Book seems to be opening the mouth of the dead.
Sonu Shamdasani: It takes blood. That’s what it takes. The work is Jung’s `Book of the Dead.’ His descent into the underworld, in which there’s an attempt to find the way of relating to the dead. He comes to the realization that unless we come to terms with the dead we simply cannot live, and that our life is dependent on finding answers to their unanswered questions.

Begun in 1914, Swiss psychologist Carl Jung’s The Red Book lay dormant for almost 100 years before its eventual publication. Opinions are divided on whether Jung would have published the book if he had lived longer. He did send drafts to publishers early in life but seemed in no hurry to publish the book despite his advancing age. Regardless, it was of enormous importance to the psychologist, being shown to only a few confidants and family members. More importantly, the process of writing The Red Book was one of the most formative periods of Jung’s life. In the time that Jung worked on the book he came into direct experience with the forces of the deep mind and collective unconscious. For the remainder of his career he would use the experience to build concepts and theories about the unconscious and repressed parts of the human mind.
In the broadest sense, Jungian psychology has two goals.
  1. Integrate and understand the deepest and most repressed parts of the the human mind
and
  1. Don’t let them eat you alive in the process.
Jungian psychology is about excavating the most repressed parts of self and learning to hold them so that we can know exactly who and what we are. Jung called this process individuation. Jungian psychology is not, and should not be understood as, an attempt to create a religion. It was an attempt to build a psychological container for the forces of the unconscious. While not a religion, it served a similar function as a religion. Jungian psychology serves as both a protective buffer and a lens to understand and clarify the self. Jung described his psychology as a bridge to religion. His hope was that it could help psychology understand the functions of the human need for religion, mythology and the transcendental. Jung hoped that his psychology could make religion occupy a healthier, more mindful place in our culture by making the function of religion within humanity more conscious.
Jung did not dislike religion. He viewed it as problematic when the symbols of religion became concretized and people took them literally. Jungian psychology itself has roots in Hindu religious traditions. Jung often recommended that patients of lapsed faith return to their religions of origin. He has case studies encouraging patients to resume Christian or Muslim religious practices as a source of healing and integration. Jung did have a caveat though. He recommended that patients return to their traditions with an open mind. Instead of viewing the religious traditions and prescriptive lists of rules or literal truths he asked patients to view them as metaphors for self discovery and processes for introspection. Jung saw no reason to make religious patients question their faith. He did see the need for patients who had abandoned religion to re-examine its purpose and function.
The process of writing The Red Book was itself a religious experience for Jung. He realized after his falling out from Freud, that his own religious tradition and the available psychological framework was not enough to help him contain the raw and wuthering forces of his own unconscious that were assailing him at the time. Some scholars believe Jung was partially psychotic while writing The Red Book, others claim he was in a state of partial dissociation or simply use Jung’s term “active imagination”.
The psychotic is drowning while the artist is swimming. The waters both inhabit, however, are the same. Written in a similar voice to the King James Bible, The Red Book has a religious and transcendent quality. It is written on vellum in heavy calligraphy with gorgeous hand illuminated script. Jung took inspiration for mystical and alchemical texts for its full page illustrations.
It is easier to define The Red Book by what it is not than by what it is. According to Jung, it is not a work of art. It is not a scholarly psychological endeavor. It is also not an attempt to create a religion. It was an attempt for Jung to heal himself in a time of pain and save himself from madness by giving voice to the forces underneath his partial psychotic episode. The Red Book was a kind of container to help Jung witness the forces of the deep unconscious. In the same way, religion and Jungian psychology are containers for the ancient unconscious forces in the vast ocean under the human psyche.
Lament of the Dead, Psychology after Carl Jung’s The Red Book is a dialogue between ex Jungian analyst James Hillman and Jungian scholar Sonu Shamdasani about the implications the Red Book has for Jungian psychology. Like the Red Book it was controversial when it was released.

James Hillman was an early protege of Jung who later became a loud critic of parts of Jung’s psychology. Hillman wanted to create an “archetypal” psychology that would allow patients to directly experience and not merely analyze the psyche. His new psychology never really came together coherently and he never found the technique to validate his instinct. Hillman had been out of the Jungian fold for almost 30 years before he returned as a self appointed expert advisor during the publication of The Red Book. Hillman’s interest in The Red Book was enough to make him swallow his pride, and many previous statements, to join the Jungians once again. It is likely that the archetypal psychology he was trying to create is what The Red Book itself was describing.
Sonu Shamdasani is not a psychologist but a scholar of the history of psychology. His insights have the detachment of the theoretical where Hillman’s are more felt and more intuitive but also more personal. One gets the sense in the book that Hillman is marveling painfully at an experience that he had been hungry for for a long time. The Red Book seems to help him clarify the disorganized blueprints of his stillborn psychological model. While there is a pain in Hillman’s words there is also a peace that was rare to hear from such a flamboyant and unsettled psychologist.
Sonu Shamdasani is the perfect living dialogue partner for Hillman to have in the talks that make up Lament. Shamdasani has one of the best BS detectors of maybe any Jungian save David Tacey. Shamdasani has deftly avoided the fads, misappropriations and superficialization that have plagued the Jungian school for decades. As editor of the Red Book he knows more about the history and assembly of the text than any person save for Jung. Not only is he also one of the foremost living experts on Jung, but as a scholar he does not threaten the famously egotistical Hillman as a competing interpreting psychologist. The skin that Shamdasani has in this game is as an academic while Hillman gets to play the prophet and hero of the new psychology they describe without threat or competition.
Presumedly these talks were recorded as research for a collaborative book to be co authored by the two friends and the death of Hillman in 2011 made the publication as a dialogue in 2013 a necessity. If that is not the case the format of a dialogue makes little sense. If that is the case it gives the book itself an almost mystical quality and elevates the conversation more to the spirit of a philosophical dialogue.
We are only able to hear these men talk to each other and not to us. There is a deep reverberation between the resonant implications these men are seeing The Red Book have for modern psychology. However, they do not explain their insights to the reader and their understandings can only be glimpsed intuitively. Like the briefcase in the film Pulp Fiction the audience sees the object through its indirect effect on the characters. We see the foggy outlines of the ethics that these men hope will guide modern psychology but we are not quite able to see it as they see it. We have only an approximation through the context of their lives and their interpretation of Jung’s private diary. This enriches a text that is ultimately about the limitations of understanding.
One of the biggest criticisms of the book when it was published was that the terms the speaker used are never defined and thus the book’s thesis is never objectivised or clarified. While this is true if you are an English professor, the mystic and the therapist in me see these limitations as the book’s strengths. The philosophical dialectic turns the conversation into an extended metaphor that indirectly supports the themes of the text. The medium enriches the message. Much like a socratic dialogue or a film script the the authors act more as characters and archetypes than essayists. The prophet and the scholar describe their function and limitations as gatekeepers of the spiritual experience.
Reading the Lament, much like reading The Red Book, one gets the sense that one is witnessing a private but important moment in time. It is a moment that is not our moment and is only partially comprehensible to anyone but the author(s). Normally that would be a weakness but here it becomes a strength. Where normally the reader feels that a book is for them, here we feel that we are eavesdropping through a keyhole or from a phone line downstairs. The effect is superficially frustrating but also gives Lament a subtle quality to its spirituality that The Red Book lacks.
Many of the obvious elements for a discussion of the enormous Red Book are completely ignored in the dialogue. Hillman and Shamdasani’s main takeaway is that The Red Book is about “the dead”. What they mean by “the dead” is never explained directly. This was a major sticking point for other reviewers, but I think their point works better undefined. They talk about the dead as a numinous term. Perhaps they are speaking about the reality of death itself. Perhaps about the dead of history. Perhaps they are describing the impenetrable veil we can see others enter but never see past ourselves. Maybe the concept contains all of these elements. Hillman, who was 82 at the time of having the conversations in Lament, may have been using The Red Book and his dialogue with Shamdasani to come to terms with his feelings about his own impending death.
Perhaps it is undefined because these men are feeling something or intuitively, seeing something that the living lack the intellectual language for. It is not that the authors do not know what they are talking about. They know, but they are not able to completely say it. Hillman was such an infuriatingly intuitive person that his biggest downfall in his other books is that he often felt truths that he could not articulate. Instead he retreated into arguing the merits of his credentials and background or into intellectual archival of his opinions on philosophers and artists. In other works this led to a didactic and self righteous tone that his writing is largely worse for. In Lament Hillman is forced to talk off the cuff and that limitation puts him at his best as a thinker.
In his review of Lament, David Tacey has made the very good point that Jung abandoned the direction that The Red Book was taking him in. Jung saw it as a dead end for experiential psychology and retreated back into analytical inventorying of “archetypes”. On the publication of The Red Book, Jungians celebrate the book as the “culmination” of Jungian thought when instead it was merely a part of its origins. The Red Book represents a proto-Jungian psychology as Jung attempted to discover techniques for integration. Hillman and Shamdasani probe the psychology’s origins for hints of its future in Lament.
Hillman and Shamdasani’s thesis is partially a question about ethics and partially a question about cosmology. Are there any universal directions for living and behaving that Jungian psychology compels us towards (ethics)? Is there an external worldview that the, notoriously phenomenological, nature of Jungian psychology might imply (cosmology)? These are the major questions Hillman and Shamdasani confront in Lament.Their answer is not an answer as much as it is a question for the psychologists of the future.
Their conclusion is that “the dead” of our families, society, and human history foist their unlived life upon us. It is up to us, and our therapists, to help us deal with the burden of “the dead”. It is not us that live, but the dead that live through us. Hillman quotes W.H. Auden several times:
We are lived through powers that we pretend to understand.
– W.H. Auden
A major tenant of Jungian psychology is that adult children struggle under the unlived life of the parent. The Jungian analyst helps the patient acknowledge and integrate all of the forces of the psyche that the parent ran from, so they are not passed down to future generations. A passive implication of the ethics and the cosmology laid out in Lament, is that to have a future we must reckon with not only the unlived life of the parent but also the unlived life of all the dead.
It is our job as the living to answer the questions and face the contradictions our humanity posits in order to discover what we really are. The half truths and outright lies from the past masquerade as tradition for traditions sake, literalized religion, and unconscious tribal identity must be overthrown. The weight of the dead of history can remain immovable if we try to merely discard it but drowns us if we cling to it too tightly. We need to use our history and traditions to give us a container to reckon with the future. The container must remain flexible if we are to grow into our humanity as a society and an aware people.
If you find yourself saying “Yes, but what does “the dead” mean!” Then this book is not for you. If you find yourself confused but humbled by this thesis then perhaps it is. Instead of a further📷 explanation of the ethical and cosmological future for psychology that his book posits I will give you a tangible example about how its message was liberatory for me.
Hillman introduces the concepts of the book with his explanation of Jung’s reaction to the theologian and missionary Albert Schweitzer. Jung hated Schweitzer. He hated him because he had descended into Africa and “gone native”. In Jung’s mind Schweitzer had “refused the call” to do anything and “brought nothing home”. Surely the Africans that were fed and clothed felt they had been benefited! Was Jung’s ethics informed by racism, cluelessness, arrogance or some other unknown myopism?
A clue might be found in Jung’s reaction to modern art exploring the unconscious or in his relationship with Hinduism. Jung took the broad strokes of his psychology from the fundamentals of the brahman/atman and dharma/moksha dichotomies of Hinduism. Jung also despised the practice of eastern mysticism practices by westerners but admired it in Easterners. Why? His psychology stole something theoretical that his ethics disallowed in direct practice.
Jung’s views on contemporary (modern) artists of his time were similar. He did not want to look at depictions of the raw elements of the unconscious. In his mind discarding all the lessons of classicism was a “cop out”. He viewed artists that descended into the abstract with no path back or acknowledgement of the history that gave them that path as failures. He wanted artists to make the descent into the subjective world and return with a torch of it’s fire but not be consumed by it blaze. Depicting the direct experience of the unconscious was the mark of a failed artist to Jung. To Jung the destination was the point, not the journey. The only thing that mattered is what you were able to bring back from the world of the dead. He had managed to contain these things in The Red Book, why couldn’t they? The Red Book was Jung’s golden bough.
Jung took steps to keep the art in The Red Book both outside of the modernist tradition and beyond the historical tradition. The Red Book uses a partially medieval format but Jung both celebrates and overcomes the constraints of his chosen style. The Red Book was not modern or historical, it was Jung’s experience of both. In Lament, Hillman describes this as the ethics that should inform modern psychology. Life should become ones own but part of ones self ownership is that we take responsibility for driving a tradition forward not a slave to repeating it.
📷Oddly enough the idea of descent and return will already be familiar to many Americans through the work of Joseph Campbell. Campbell took the same ethics of descent and return to the unconscious as the model of his “monomyth” model of storytelling. This briefly influenced psychology and comparative religion in the US and had major impact on screenwriters to this day. Campbells ethics are the same as Jung’s. If one becomes stuck on the monomyth wheel, or the journey of the descent and return, one is no longer the protagonist and becomes an antagonist. Campbell, and American post jungians in general were not always great attributing influences and credit where it was due.
Jung was suspicious of the new age theosophists and psychedelia and psychonauts that became enamored with the structure of the unconscious for the unconscious sake. Where Lament shines is when Hillman explains the ethics behind Jung’s thinking. Jung lightly implied this ethics but was, as Hillman points out, probably not entirely conscious of it. One of Lament’s biggest strengths and weaknesses is that it sees through the misappropriations of Jungian psychology over the last hundred years. Both of the dialogue’s figures know the man of Jung so well that they do not need to address how he was misperceived by the public. They also know the limitations of the knowable.
This is another lesson that is discussed in Lament. Can modern psychology know what it can’t know? That is my biggest complaint with the profession as it currently exists. Modern psychology seems content to retreat into research and objectivism. The medical, corporate, credentialist and academic restructuring of psychology in the nineteen eighties certainly furthered that problem. Jung did not believe that the descent into the unconscious without any hope of return was a path forward for psychology. This is why he abandoned the path The Red Book led him down. Can psychology let go of the objective and the researchable enough to embrace the limits of the knowable? Can we come to terms with limitations enough to heal an ego inflated world that sees no limits to growth?
I don’t know but I sincerely hope so.
I said that I would provide a tangible example of the application of this book in it’s review, so here it is:
I have always been enamored with James Hillman. He was by all accounts a brilliant analyst. He also was an incredibly intelligent person. That intellect did not save him. Hillman ended his career as a crank and a failure in my mind. In this book you see Hillman contemplate that failure. You also see Hillman attempt to redeem himself as he glimpses the unglimpseable. He sees something in the Red Book that he allows to clarify his earlier attempt to revision psychology.
Hillman’s attempt to reinvent Jungian psychology as archetypal psychology was wildly derided. Largely, because it never found any language or technique for application and practice. Hillman himself admitted that he did not know how to practice archetypal psychology. It’s easy to laugh at somebody who claims to have reinvented psychology and can’t even tell you what you do with their revolutionary invention.
However, I will admit that I think Hillman was right. He knew that he was but he didnt know how he was right. It is a mark of arrogance to see yourself as correct without evidence. Hillman was often arrogant but I think here he was not. Many Jungian analysts would leave the Jungian institutes through the 70, 80s and 90s to start somatic and experiential psychology that used Jung as a map but the connection between the body and the brain as a technique. These models made room for a direct experience in psychology that Jungian analysis does not often do. It added an element that Jung himself had practiced in the writing of The Red Book. Hillman never found this technique but he was correct about the path he saw forward for psychology. He knew what was missing.
📷I started Taproot Therapy Collective because I felt a calling to dig up the Jungian techniques of my parent’s generation and reify them. I saw those as the most viable map towards the future of psychology, even though American psychology had largely forgotten them. I also saw them devoid of a practical technique or application for a world where years of analysis cost more than most trauma patients will make in a lifetime. I feel that experiential and brain based medicine techniques like brainspotting are the future of the profession.
Pathways like brainspotting, sensorimotor therapy, somatic experiencing, neurostimulation, ketamine, psilocybin or any technique that allows the direct experience of the subcortical brain is the path forward to treat trauma. These things will be at odds with the medicalized, corporate, and credentialized nature of healthcare. I knew that this would be a poorly understood path that few people, even the well intentioned, could see. I would never have found it if I had refused the call of “the dead”.
Lament is relevant because none of those realizations is somewhere that I ever would have gotten without the tradition that I am standing on top of. I am as, Isaac Newton said, standing on the shoulders of giants. Except Isaac Newton didn’t invent that phrase. It was associated with him but he was standing on the tradition of the dead to utter a phrase first recorded in the medieval period. The author of its origin is unknown because they are, well, dead. They have no one to give their eulogy.
The ethics and the cosmology of Lament, is that our lives are meant to be a eulogy for our dead. Lament, makes every honest eulogy in history become an ethics and by extension a cosmology. Read Pericles eulogy from the Peloponesian war in Thucydides. How much of these lessons are still unlearned? I would feel disingenuous in my career unless I tell you who those giants are that I stand on. They are David Tacey, John Beebe, Sonu Shamdasani, Carl Jung, Fritz Perls, Karen Horney, and Hal Stone. Many others also.
I would never have heard the voice of James Hillman inside myself unless I had learned to listen to the dead from his voice beyond the grave. It would have been easy for me to merely critize his failures instead of seeing them as incomplete truths. Hillman died with many things incomplete, as we all inevitably will. Lament helped me clarify the voices that I was hearing in the profession. Lament of the Dead is a fascinating read not because it tells us exactly what to do with the dead, or even what they are. Lament is fascinating because it helps us to see a mindful path forward between innovation and tradition.
The contents of the collective unconscious cannot be contained by one individual. Just as Jungian psychology is meant to be a container to help an individual integrate the forces of the collective unconscious, attention to the unlived life of the historical dead can be a kind of container for culture. Similarly to Jungian psychology the container is not meant to be literalized or turned into a prison. It is a lens and a buffer to protect us until we are ready and allow us to see ourselves more clearly once we are. Our project is to go further in the journey of knowing ourselves where our ancestors failed to. Our mindful life is the product of the unlived life of the dead it is our life that is their lament.
I will end with a few quotes from the often paradoxical Hillman.
Soul…is the “patient” part of us. Soul is vulnerable and suffers; it is passive and remembers. It is water to the spirit’s fire, like a mermaid who beckons the heroic spirit into the depths of passions to extinguish its certainty. Soul is imagination, a cavernous treasury…Whereas spirit chooses the better part and seeks to make all one. Look up, says spirit, gain distance; there is something beyond and above, and what is above is always, and always superior.
…from the perspective of spirit..the soul must be disciplined, its desires harnessed, imagination emptied, dreams forgotten, involvements dried. For soul, says spirit, cannot know, neither truth, nor law, nor cause. … So there must be spiritual disciplines for the soul, ways in which soul shall conform with models enunciated for it by spirit.
…But from the viewpoint of the psyche…movement upward looks like repression. There may well be more psychopathology actually going on while transcending than while being immersed in pathologizing. For any attempt at self-realization without full recognition of the psychopathology that resides, as Hegel said, inherently in the soul is in itself pathological, an exercise in self-deception.
…spirit is after ultimates and it reveals by means of a via negativa. “Neti, neti,” it says, “not this, not that.” Strait is the gate and only first or last things will do. Soul replies by saying, “Yes, this too has place, may find its archetypal significance, belongs in a myth.” The cooking vessel of the soul takes in everything, everything can become soul; and by taking into its imagination any and all events, psychic space grows.

2023.05.31 01:01 ColdBlackWater Flaming


A couple of years ago I was staying the night in Charleville Castle, Tullamore. I was volunteering with a group of friends at the time making preparations for a festival that was to take place and we were all staying in a room at the top of one of the towers.
Now the place is supposedly very haunted, and I'd heard a multitude of stories about sightings and spooky experiences, but I didn't really think much of them.
Anyways, as we were all getting into our beds ready to go to sleep I realised I needed to use the bathroom. I decided I wouldn't be able to sleep a wink if I didn't go so I ventured down the tower staircase by myself towards the bathroom, which was located on a lower floor.
Now there's a big scary story surrounding that particular staircase, concerning a young girl who fell to her death and is continuing to haunt the castle, but I won't get into it. All I'll say is that even though I don't really believe in all of it, it still felt pretty spooky walking down there in the dark by myself.
As I approached the bottom of the staircase and was about to open the door to the landing, my stomach kind of flipped a bit I guess, weird sudden anxiety took hold. I went through the door and immediately could hear a crackling sound, and could see a flickering amber light coming from one of the rooms to my right through a door that was ajar.
I ran over, opened the door and immediately saw the weirdest thing.
There was a candle, thicker than my arm, sitting on top of the piano fully on fire from top to bottom. We're talking a full, thick column of flame coming out of brand new candle, just there for ornamental purposes. I knew there was a fire extinguisher in the next room, but I also knew if I went and sprayed down this restored antique room without anybody else seeing the fire I'd likely get in trouble.
So basically I ran back up the tower and woke all my friends, who took a painstaking amount of time getting out of their beds, all the while telling me to F off and go to sleep, stop taking the piss basically.
Finally, they sauntered down the staircase with me running around in front yelling Fire. As soon as they opened the door to the landing and heard the flames, they sprung into action and one of them grabbed the extinguisher and doused it.
That's basically the story, we were all a little shaken up by it, but we haven't really talked about it much to this day. It's always plagued me that a thick run of the mill candle could go on fire like that. It was about a foot or so tall while it was burning so it was still fairly new.
Also I've always thought with a candle that thick, if left unnattended, it would pretty much melt middle first. I just can't see how it could have lit up like that simply by itself.

2023.05.31 01:01 absoluteScientific 48Q = 65th percentile??

Wow. So I need some help interpreting my results. I’m pleased with my IR (8) and verbal (47) unofficial scores, which are 90th and 99th percentile respectively. AWA is still unscored. I found the quant to be WAY harder than the official mocks but idk if I just panicked or something.
My overall score is 760 which it says is 99th percentile, but I’m shocked by the fact that I got 65th percentile on the quant with a 48. It’s my understanding that many MBA programs are quant-focused and will weight that score more than verbal. Will top 20 schools throw my application out based on that quant score? Or is my score still as good as the overall 760 suggests it is?
I had a really poor sub 3 gpa in college (Ivy, engineering) due to some personal life events and medical issues, neither of which I managed strategically or successfully. I take full accountability for that and I wanted to help burn that factor by banking on a strong score across all categories here. I will seek to explain the low gpa as an addendum to my personal statement. And I’ve also had very strong work experience in finance and business strategy so far with very positive feedback, fast tracked promotions and very well known firms.
Just really discouraged to see a 65 in the percentile column today. My GRE I got 336 with a 6.0 AWA (170 V, 166 Q) and that was at least 84th percentile for quant. At this point I wonder if I should submit that instead.
I would be extremely thankful for any advice or insight.

2023.05.31 01:00 Red-forest-218 Recommendations for thinning forest and smoothing out forest floor

Recommendations for thinning forest and smoothing out forest floor
I have a few acres of forest I’d like to make more enjoyable for camping and hiking. The forest floor is very uneven, with old stumps and fallen trees in various stages of decay, and the floor is covered in several branches, leaves, etc. There are also large rocks lying around.
My goal is to thin out a few of the trees, particularly the evergreens, so more light can come through, and even out the ground so it’s more walkable with a camping area.
I believe a drum mulcher can help thin the trees, and lay the mulch on the ground to help with the soil. I’m not sure how deep, if at all, it’s safe to put the drum mulcher into the ground to deal with stumps and fallen trees, or if rocks could badly damage the drum mulcher.
I believe a root rake can help pick up the large branches in a pile to burn or also mulch.
I’m not sure of the safest way to even out the ground, which as far as I can tell is years of fallen trees and decaying stumps that have been covered by debris.
Any thoughts or advice? Would like to do it myself with a rental or possible purchase of a skid steer or tractor, as paying someone on this size parcel (plus necessary upkeep) seems to be cost prohibitive.
Thank you

2023.05.31 00:59 Immediate_Energy_711 I need to vent, sorry if it ruins anyone's day

I am a DM for a game that I told my players would be focused heavily on realism and survival, with combat and travel being tweaked set in a region that is kinda like Europe 200 years post Roman collapse but Germanic instead of Roman culture. I legitimately try to make the game enjoyable for my players, I really do. Making custom items, feats, letting them do cool rule or balance defying shit. I invest a ton of time into making custom region maps, battle maps, monster stat blocks, etc.... trying to make combat interesting and fun so that the hour or two investment in one is worth it, etc... And no, I am not claiming to be a perfect DM. I still make mistakes, I still balance things badly, I can always do better.

A player just told me something today, a player who has either not contacted me he couldn't show or said he could show then didn't for the last few weeks (we haven't moved forward since I want a quorum for a major plot moment going forward and half of my players are not showing, haven't dropped just can't show) and randomly in the Discord said he didn't like the random combats that slow the game down. The same fucker I let play a Third Party Dragon Class, the same fucker who takes any chance he can get to argue to me, the same fucker who does not keep track of his gold making me have to do it for him a week after a session in question, the fucker who is mad I gave him a plot hook simply because it involves a curse slowly turning him evil (something that will not actually happen unless he does something stupid), who will bitch in combat that the FUCKING DRAGON is getting targeted the most, is complaining that goblins coming out of the woods to raid a small party is random and bullshit.

Maybe if the party showed up on time instead of slowly wading into the game so we start 30 minutes after when we are supposed to start. Maybe if we spent more time playing the game instead of me having to repeat every fucking city name and the key components of each of them cause no one takes notes despite me suggesting it, or having to help explain how an ability they've had for months IRL works during combat....sorry. I am just fucking fed up. And pissed. I try, I really fucking try to make the game enjoyable for my players and its just not rewarding at all. And the worst part? I enjoy making the game, setting stuff up. Hell, I love the RP my players will do or when they think of something clever in combat or figure out the trick to the encounter I set up or the conspiracy at play. I'm just burned out over bullshit, or maybe I'm snapping at a small remark. If you read through this, thanks.

2023.05.31 00:59 HomeImprovementRep Tongue Cancer? (29m) burning, pain, numbness for around 5 months

29m
5 foot 8ish
155 lbs
White/hispanic/native
Duration: about 5 months
Location: USA
Area of complaint: tongue
No medications
Photos: https://imgur.com/a/MeYJcg6 (might not work in some reddit apps as Imgur thinks my tongue is NSFW...)
For 5 months I've felt like my tongue is swollen, numb, sometimes burning, sometimes painful. It feels hard to talk but I can talk pretty fine. ENT im February thought I had ALS causing these feelings, but I don't according to 2 neurologists. The ENT didn't really examine my tongue too closely.
Now that it's been some time... does this spot look like it could be cancer or something? Or is it trauma? I feel like it's gotten worse and not better.

2023.05.31 00:59 TheGreaterShade Do Guardians need to eat and sleep? Can they get sick?

I am struggling to find a clear answer to whether or not Guardians experience hunger, exhaustion, and illness.
Some scraps of lore seems to imply that Guardians are still beholden to basic human needs, while others imply that Guardians are not. There’s also a fair share that occupy the middle ground, implying Guardians experience basic needs like hunger and exhaustion but don't really need to do anything about them. Or that their Ghosts can alleviate/eliminate these needs for their Guardian altogether.
Obviously we know Guardians feel pain, as our characters will scream if injured enough or upon death. Guardians are seemingly immune to conventional bacterial or viral infections, as Ghost once said during the Lake of Shadows strike "...good thing we can't get tetanus!" However this doesn't seem to prevent Guardians from carrying diseases with them according to some Corsair dialogue in the Vestian Outpost back in D1, something to the tune of "who knows what diseases these outsiders are carrying." Guardians may be physically immune to disease, but even that doesn't stop germs from hitching a ride on objects or surfaces. I half speculate that transmats serve two purposes, the first being transportation the second being to sci-fi flash sanitize the germs off our armor. However this doesn't work for everything, back in Season of the Haunted there was a small decontamination chamber between the containment area for the Crown of Sorrow and the rest of the HELM. Even then it didn't stop the Egregore spores from finding their way to the rest of the ship. It's possible that the only conditions which can now affect us are paracausal in nature, like being Taken as we've seen with Commander Sloane. However her Ghost is keeping her from becoming completely Taken. So I think we're sage in saying Guardians can't become ill in the mundane physical sense.
Even still the Light doesn't seem to prevent Guardians from presenting with physical symptoms (like insomnia) of underlying mental health issues, that our Ghosts are seemingly unable to fix. Guardians being plagued by conditions of a mental/emotional in nature make sense given what Guardians do on a regular basis. That's also not accounting for the fact that in the Destiny Universe there are entire ad campaigns for prescription drugs that target Guardians, courtesy of the Jade Rabbit lore tab. Then there's what Osiris said to Nimbus during the River of Souls cutscene regarding the difference between the Light and Darkness, the Light being physical in nature and the Darkness being mental in nature. So perhaps the Light can't really help or heal in the mental health regard.
Eating and sleeping on the other hand are completely different. Sloane stated that while she was trying to survive on Titan Asha helped her find food and watched over her as she slept. But it doesn't definitively imply whether she needed to do either. In the Man with No Name, Drifter's Ghost implies he can help fix the starvation that keeps killing Germaine. But whether that's fixing it via the Light or helping him find and identify what is and isn't edible we don't know. During a Season of the Chosen cutscene Zavala says he isn't sleeping well, and there are countless accounts of Guardians suffering from insomnia. Then there's the Warlocks of Praxic Order who don't sleep at all apparently. It's assumed that being revived is basically a physical reset, so perhaps the only way a Ghost can help in terms of hunger and exhaustion is just reviving their Guardian after they die. So in that sense Guardians might not need to eat or sleep if they can find a way to get themselves killed. Which opens up a ton of potentially disturbing realities when it comes to just being a Guardian.
Either way I wanted to hear what people think on the subject, since it isn't very clearly defined in the lore.

2023.05.31 00:56 You_Are_Hopie The haunted village

My name was Cody and I was generation 3 of an Eve camp. When I was still a baby, Eve came up to us saying that the new brown family made their well just north of us and now our well spot was dry; we would have to move. I set out west as a toddler looking for a new spot for my family, picking wild foods and making arrows as I went. As I went further and further west— four hundred meters, five hundred, six hundred— I started noticing dry springs. These weren’t leading to the brown family directly north of our camp, they were pointing further west. Out of curiosity I followed them, and found the haunted village.
The first body I saw had all of their clothes, shoes, and items still on their person, no one removed the valuables. I figured they had been the last to die. As I walked further into town, I saw more and more bodies in the exact same state— people who died where they stood with all of their clothes and backpack contents completely untouched, dozens of them, preserved to time. It was like everyone in the camp dropped dead simultaneously, leaving no one to scavenge and clean up. Each body also said “forgotten person” instead of a name, meaning that the bodies were very old. I walked into the nursery and to my shock, there was a small fire still lit. I looked around for any survivors, but it was eerily quiet— no sign of a scavenger who possibly relit the fire, and there were significant valuables like two trucks with kero left behind. The small fire never wavered during my investigation of the camp until I added firewood out of habit— that triggered the burn down sequence to restart and it eventually burned to ash.
I gathered food and clothes for my family into a truck and left the haunted village to scout out a new home. I eventually found a good spot and led my family there, where they lived to generation 11. I revisited the haunted village for a few subsequent lives to continue to loot and bring goods back to my family. But I can’t help but wonder what happened there… it was an eerie place, especially the first visit with the dozens of untouched forgotten bodies and the perpetually burning fire…

2023.05.31 00:55 Javierrodrigu73 (Spoilers Main) Do you think the 3 'holy sh*t moments' in GOT will affect your enjoyment of WoW and ADoS

We know from the showrunners of the show there are three 'holy shit moments' GRRM told them for writing several seasons of GOT. These are: 1. Shireen burned by his father. 2. Hodor 'Hold the door' moment. 3. Bran sitting in the Iron Throne at the end of the books. Yeah, we know GRRM said that the path he will follow will be very different, but do u think know these exact events will affect your enjoyment of the reading? Or do u think these moments will be so much different from the series that doesn't matter knowing before the release?
EDIT: do you think the delayed of the books is for get further of these moments even to change them?

2023.05.31 00:54 Megzilllla A turning point back to us.

My (NB34) relationship with my husband (M33) has overall been a great one. We’ve been together 13 years, lived together 11, married 5. He’s always been my best friend, and up until 2020 we barely even fought. And when we did argue it was always productive and as a team trying to solve the problem together. Everyone has issues but we always were 100% in it together, and have enjoyed our life together immensely.
In November 2020 I got really sick, and I never got better. It left me disabled with a brain injury and unable to work. We both contributed to the household but I had always made a considerable amount more money because of success moving up in my career. There was balance though because he found other ways to contribute, and always helped me keep my stress well managed.
Im still in the process of fighting for SSDI, it’s been a struggle. There have been so many arguments, we’ve both failed eachother in many ways in this time. He immediately started picking up more hours, as many as he could, and tried to keep up with the house while I was mostly bedridden. We were hours from family and any real support and he had to help me get to appointments too, my brain injury meant I couldn’t drive anymore.
Financial emergencies kept happening and we burned through our savings, it was struggle street. We’d always been thrifty but being as sick as I have been is incredibly expensive.
The stress was too much. There was a point almost a year ago where I got an infection and it left me in true psychosis. I lost touch with reality and had waking dreams, it was terrible and we couldn’t stop fighting and it led to some real resentment between us. After that both of us weren’t sure, for the first time since we’d met, if we’d be able to work it out. He reached out to my mum for help.
She started coming a few days a week to help out, and it really did relieve a lot of things. However we had so many problems still. Eventually right before Thanksgiving his work fired him. It was pretty clear to us that he was being discriminated against for needing to help with my medical issues and needing flexibility from them because of it. But no real proof and we had so much going on to deal with already. It was devastating and he just shut down.
We made a plan with my mother to move into her house for a while in order to regroup. He mostly just agreed because he couldn’t think of a better solution. We moved within a month, it was hell. I can’t believe we managed it with my disability, but we live here now.
It has taken so long but slowly things have gotten better. He recovered from his burn out and it working on going back to school to start a new career. He’ll be doing something that can support us both just in case, and when mySSDI comes in it will be used to keep us more comfortable. Living with my family has been a huge adjustment and isn’t perfect but the support we’re getting is worth it.
This past weekend we went to a music festival together that we normally go to every year. And for the first time since things got so hard we were able to have some time without any stress on our shoulders to enjoy eachother. And it was very clear to both of us that we were going to be ok. That we are going to make it through this transition and we’ll get back to the relationship we’d always had before. That we’re still best friends, and that the love is still there, and that we’re healing. And all of me feels lighter now, knowing that. Just wanted to share.
P.s. this is in no way me placing blame on him I hope it doesn’t read like that, the situation has been impossible and we both agree that we need to work on certain skills to manage problems in the future. He’s put forth a Herculean effort through all this and I appreciate it so much.
TLDR: we’ve been through the hardest experience of both our lives together and almost separated, but now we see the other side of the bad times and it’s so wonderful!
