Limiting Perceptions and Broadening Horizons

Written by Jesse S. Somer

A balance of "tunnel vision" and broad perspective are needed for human society to flourish.

If you live in modern society I'm sure at some point in your life you've sat in a window seat of an airplane looking down atrepparttar fluffy blanket of clouds and thought to yourself, 'Wow, it's so big and flat, fluffy and soft, I wonder what it would feel like to lay down on that super-soft mattress.' Well, think about what Socrates, Lao Tsu, Confucius, Da Vinci, Van Gogh, Moses or Mohammed would have thought if they sawrepparttar 142947 same sight that we pretty much take for granted as 'normality'. Last night I watched a show on TV entitled, "Limits of Perception" that showed our newly discovered microcosms and macrocosms of life with photography from atomic force microscopes up torepparttar 142948 Hubble telescope that looks out intorepparttar 142949 vast Universe. We can now see belowrepparttar 142950 level of atom, creatures one-tenth of a millimeter long that resemblerepparttar 142951 monsters of our dreams, and thousands of galaxies grouped together in super-clusters (each galaxy containing billions of stars like our own Sun).

As I watched this show I had to wonder aboutrepparttar 142952 way our human society has evolved. I mean, why wasn't this show seen by every person in our world? Imagine how much ignorance and beliefs to do with why people think they are different from each other would change in an instant. We would all know that we are each made of thirty trillion cells,repparttar 142953 same kinds of cells as everyone else, made fromrepparttar 142954 same kind of energy. Wouldn't this affectrepparttar 142955 way we treated each other, knowing we are all intrinsically made ofrepparttar 142956 same essence, not to mention that we all come fromrepparttar 142957 same one small home in an infinite Universe of worlds? Wouldn't this help us from feeling like an isolated species, knowing that every species on Earth is made ofrepparttar 142958 same elements and DNA, and that we are really not alone in space as we are actually surrounded by trillions and trillions of life creating fireball stars?

The funny thing is that I stumbled upon this TV show accidentally, unless of course you believe in destiny rather than random coincidence. TV is full of violence and crime these days, as we seem to have a real curiosity aboutrepparttar 142959 darker side of our natures. Butrepparttar 142960 truth is there are people out there who are making TV shows like this one with really positive perspectives, isn't it strange that most people won't have known it was even on? It was shown at 11:00 p.m. at night. Have we relegatedrepparttar 142961 magic of life to not-so-prime-time? It's hard to imagine whatrepparttar 142962 great minds of our ancestors would have thought and done withrepparttar 142963 information that we seem to take for granted. However, maybe there is a simple reason and subsequent solution to this issue that if we implement could really have huge positive impacts on our society and environment.

Recently a friend of mine gave me an abstract fromrepparttar 142964 website from a book called "The Company of Strangers: A Natural History of Economic Life" written by an economist Paul Seabright. Let me tell you that I've always been a little skeptical about economics, except for when I was ten years old and greedily dreamed of being an accountant counting other people's money and subsequently counting my own. But things changed and I started to believe that all ofrepparttar 142965 degradation of our morality and environment had to do with economic policies and that greed that I knew all too well. Now I try not to look at things so black and white and realize that economics is just a natural process and although it has hurt our world when it has been abused, it has also helped humanity greatly when used responsibly. Today happiness and a high quality of life are being lived by many human beings, yet I think we still need to try and balancerepparttar 142966 scales by helpingrepparttar 142967 unfortunate people to become more productive.

Natural Hair Loss Remedies

There is again no sure-fire way to prevent all hair loss; however, there are some methods that have been used that work on some people.

Massage and aromatherapy have been used with some success. In minor cases of temporary hair loss, hair growth can be stimulated by massage, since blood and oxygen flow torepparttar scalp must be healthy in order for hair to grow.

A blend of six drops each of lavender and bay essential oils in a base of fourounces of either almond, soybean or sesame oil massaged intorepparttar 142682 scalp and allowed to sit for 20 minutes has been used by aroma therapists to stimulaterepparttar 142683 scalp.

Oncerepparttar 142684 mixture is inrepparttar 142685 scalp for 20 minutes, wash your hair and scalp with your normal shampoo mixed with three drops of bay essential oil. Massagingrepparttar 142686 scalp in general for a couple of minutes a day can stimulate blood flow torepparttar 142687 hair follicles and in mild cases stimulate some hair growth.

Nettles are rich in vitamins A and C, several key minerals and lipids that can be beneficial torepparttar 142688 hair. Nettle Root Extract has been used successfully in Europe as an inhibitor of 5-alpha reductase in treating BPH. As mentioned earlier, 5-alpha reductase is a key component in turning testosterone into DHT,repparttar 142689 substance that causesrepparttar 142690 atrophy of hair follicles.
