The new version of GPT 3.5 is now released. That means is time for a New Zen Poem. Same prompt as last time: “Write a zen poem on beauty”:

In the stillness of the mind
Beauty is found
Not in the shapes we see
But in the space between

In the silence of the heart
Beauty is heard
Not in the words we speak
But in the truth we seek

In the emptiness of the soul
Beauty is felt
Not in the things we possess
But in the love we share

For true beauty lies
Not in what we see or touch or hear
But in the boundless expanse of our being
In the endless depths of our hearts.

Thanks for reading.

Sometimes you need different counterintuitive thoughts and views to understand reality. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kanizsa_triangle.svg

The self: There probably is no real self experiencing this world. We are more like a cloud of thoughts and emotions changing all the time. However, it makes sense to sometimes have a mental model of the self to act somehow coherently in the world. As Sam Harris puts it:

That said, the self-illusion is probably an inescapable experience we need for interacting with others and the world, and indeed we cannot readily abandon or ignore its influence, but we should be skeptical that each of us is the coherent, integrated entity we assume we are.

OpenAI GPT-3 prompt: “Write a zen poem on beauty”

There is no beauty
But what we make of it
With our own two hands
And our own two eyes
We can find beauty
In the simplest things
And in the most complex
It is all around us
And it is within us
All we need to do
Is open our hearts
And minds
And let it in

To improve energy, longevity, and life in general.

All these three from Andrew Huberman have a definite impact on me and I try to do them as often as possible (=daily).

NSDR for me means = 20-minute “nap” where I don’t have to sleep — just relax mind and body — usually in the afternoon.

In addition to these I really get benefits from:

  1. Avoid sugar and processed foods as much as possible
  2. Limit alcohol as much as possible
  3. No screentime 1 hour before bed (improve sleep)
  4. High-intensity physical training
  5. Quality social interaction

Thanks for reading.
