Intro ~ How to be less
I discovered how to find the answer to every answers.
With 13 easy payments of... just kidding.
How to be less stupid?
- Admit that you are ignorant, at
least to yourself. Knowing that you don't know everything opens your
mind to the infinite possibilities~
- Provide everything that your brain
needs to be able to understand.
- Food from various sources to get all the nutrients
required for optimal function, avoiding toxins.
- Information from various sources to gain many perspectives
and discover the whole complex truth, avoiding deceit.
Nourish the body, nourish the mind, and your soul will grow.
Life is that simple~
"The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know."
Understanding starts with a capable brain. A brain with its needs fulfilled
to be able to function optimally. Brains need:
- Lots of B vitamins to make its nerve networks and be able to link
ideas together and have complex thoughts. Also useful to copy old memories
into fresher neurons at night.
- Lots of vitamin C from greens, bone soup with the cartilages or supplements
if you've been deprived for too long. It's required to be flexible and
heal from strain. The eyes need a lot to be able to change its lens'
focus and see. The adrenals require a lot to handle stress.
- Vitamin B, C and iron make the red blood cells that carry oxygen to
the brain to be able to burn energy, sugar alone isn't enough. Healthy
saturated fats are good insulator between nerves and the brain is mostly
made of it.
- Proper sleep, which include the REM state of dreams, where memories
get to be transferred in newer and more efficient neurons.
- To avoid toxins that disturbs its natural functions, even if we don't
like the way they feel, and even if we find the toxins tasty, to have
a clear mind without irritations. Allergies and intolerances can cause
inflammation anywhere because the food goes in the blood and it goes
everywhere. Inflammation in the brain is referred to a "brain allergies"
and can manifest as emotional disturbances, because who would feel well
with a brain crushed against its own skull.
- To avoid excessive stress to preserve energy. It which include energy
robbers, people who take more than what they provide and are detrimental
to your emotional, mental, and also physical health because everything
is linked. Emotions are the result of nerve stimulation and can be exhausted
in a similar manner as muscles can be. When their protective coating
disintegrates, the nerves become oversensitive. Sensory stimulations
can become rapidly over stimulating and painfully unbearable.
- A good blood glucose balance, by avoiding sugar and refined grains,
including corn. Because they are concentrate stimulants without proper
nutrition, just like cocaine, and will cause an imbalance between the
fuel, capacity to burn it, and the capacity to heal from damage. A stable
fuel is a stable mind. Blood sugar crashes can cause seizures.
- A proper electrolyte balance of minerals so the electrical impulses
will work smoothly to transmit messages. Calcium contracts muscles,
magnesium relaxes them. Magnesium is used to make the serotonin, the
feel good hormone, produced in the gut. It's basically rewarding you
for nourishing properly.
- A good hormonal balance in your endocrine system. Hormones are the
way your body communicates too, not just electrical impulses but juices.
Making sure that the adrenal glands have enough water soluble vitamins
(B & C) ad minerals to function will insure that all the others
that depend on them will be as well. Including the thyroid, which won't
boost your metabolism to burn energy unless the adrenals are nourished
enough to handle it.
- Once your whole body's needs are in balance, you'll be at your best
mentally and will be able to think of solutions and welcome change,
which require connections in your brain to be ripped apart sometimes
and grown anew, and if you don't eat the right materials, you won't
be able to.

You obviously won't be able to have good judgment if
you are malnourished, sleep deprived and poisoned.
You won't be able to remember what you already know so you won't be able
to apply it constructively. You won't even be able to understand your own
senses. Self care is very important and must come first, because then you
become able to comprehend and accomplish everything else.
Being at the peek of your health can even make you score extra points on
an IQ test. But having a superior intellectual potential doesn't guarantee
you to avoid being ignorant. Even a genius can be mistaken, by not being
properly informed, or reaching the wrong conclusion if they have not discovered
all the facts yet. Someone with a slower mind but more patience and better
access to information can end up with a smarter knowledge than someone who's
There are different kinds of stupid. The one that I usually refer to is
the worst kind: the willful ignorant who deny the evidence and think that
they are the only ones who have all the answers. Their mind is closed to
the truth, because they confuse facts with opinions, and they are blind
by their ego. Putting oneself above the truth is a dangerous kind of stupid,
even for your own sake.
You can't figure out what will truly make you feel good
if you are unwilling to face the fact that you where wrong.
Some things can seem to have immediate rewards, but create a devastating
effect in the long run by causing trauma on the body or budget by trying
to get too much too soon. Other things can seem to be a tedious pain to
slowly nurture, but they will have a sustainable and stable effect that
will feel better in the long run, because a rapid high is quickly followed
by a rapid crash. Balance and stability is more important. That's why a
detox can seem more painful than continuing the poison, but by moving forward
through that phase you can reach a much better baseline. It will improve
your wellbeing by getting used to a better lifestyle, but figuring things
out can be scary, it's okay to be, just don't let it discourage you. Sometimes
listening to the warning can save your life, but sometimes your salvation
is in the intimidating unknown.
Look at both the details and the big picture. Both the
short and long term effects. Both the god and positive sides. Some goods
aren't worth the bad that comes with it.
Choose both when you make a decision, not only the greatest good, because
it can require the greatest efforts and sacrifices, and end up being the
greatest pain. Simplify your life and you simplify your problems. Trying
to do and gain more than we can handle is a typical source of misery, even
when it turns out the way we wanted it to be, the exhaustion ruins the pleasure
because nothing is more valuable than health. Everything has a price, but
not necessarily in money, and not necessarily one that you'd like to pay...
Trying to make the best of a bad situation is admirable, and so is to appreciate
the positive. But refusing to admit your doom won't make it hurt any less.
Plan ahead by weighting the pros and cons before making a decision.
Healthy life choices, by putting your needs above your
and whims, are always a good decision. You can't accomplish
as much if you're sick or dead. Put what's the most vital
as your top priority and you'll be at your best.
You won't need to
be comforted by others or junk food because you won't be in distress from
self neglect & abuse. Have a good cycle of self care, not a vicious
one indulging the worst in you. Focus on your strengths, instead to try
to reassure your weaknesses, and that's what you'll grow.
Once your brain can function at its maximum efficiency, provide intellectual
nourishment. Your brain craves this otherwise you suffer from boredom.
Realize that you have the potential
to do something
to better yourself. Find the motivation by knowing that you'll benefit from
it. Knowledge is power.
Knowledge is infinite.
Knowledge is an infinite source of power.
Intelligent people conquered the world and reached above people stronger,
richer and more charismatic than they where. Smart people propelled entire
civilizations into new eras. The wise are the advisors of kings who'd be
lost without them. Intellectual people are on top of the world because they
can master their own skills and adversity. With enough patience and research,
you can find any solution and discover how to create your own world like
Don't ask questions unless you are ready to have the answer shatter your
Ask a lot of question.
Interacting with various people with different experiences can help, but
it can cause conflict. Arguing is a good way to make discoveries unless
you stubbornly close yourself to anything different than what you're used
to. Not everyone is willing to speak honestly. But you can do research alone
thanks to literature. You can read books, but thankfully there's no longer
a need to kill a tree to pas on wisdom. Basically... Google a lot of different
things and read on different types of sites. The common folks can have the
best accurate information, from the experiences of actually living the topic,
instead of a specialist who merely memorized outdated theories.
"I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to
treat everything as if it were a nail."
The law of the instrument
Maslow's hammer, said by Abraham Maslow in 1966.
If you go see a medical doctor or psychiatrist for a problem, the only tool
they have to justify charging you money are drugs, so they will, but it
doesn't necessarily mean that this is what you need to resolve the root
cause of your problem. Naturopaths threat with nutrition, which is something
that your body actually need to survive, so it had great success for me.
Sometimes doing something so unusual that you end up looking bat shit insane
is the only way to reach the truth that will save you.
Don't let your arrogance fool you into thinking that the solution is complex,
you might be forgetting the most basic principles of life that everyone
takes for granted. It's easy to eat, but it's just as easy to swallow something
wrong, it takes proper biofeedback to figure that out. Pain and sadness
isn't the enemy, even a tumor is trying to prolong your life, and the causes
are the real problems. Look further than the surface. If you find a truth,
it's just the tip of the iceberg, but congratulation, you found the iceberg.
Someone who is very rich will have a different perspective, value and attitude
than someone who's very poor. But both know different wisdoms that allowed
them to survive and that can be useful.
Everyone is capable of stupidity and wisdom. When you
gather all the wisdom from everyone, you become enriched. Don't reject a
treasure of knowledge because you don't like its container. Don't swallow
bullshit from a pretty vase.
Dig deeper than the surface, face the controversy, there's always some truth
in myths, and lots of lies in ads.
True pride is rooted in truth.
Don't hesitate to admit that you don't know everything, even the greatest
geniuses don't. Their success was paved by mistakes, it's necessary to make
them, they are the best teachers.
"The master has failed more times than the beginner
has even tried."
"When you procrastinate you become a slave to yesterday."
"Failing to plan, is like planning to fail."
Stephen McCranie, cartoonist.
Failure is never a complete end, it can be the beggining of something even
better after you readjust your goals, so your wants will be in harmony with
your needs, and your actions will be balanced with your capacities.
Don't lie to yourself. You'd be denying yourself the chance to reach your
Pain killers merely silence the warning that you are being harmed, it doesn't
stop the damage. Face the truth. Abandon all hopes, make it happen. Otherwise
your dream could be a nightmare. Never trust blindly. Trust that your body
has a good reason for being unpleasant, find it, and correct it.
Just like food must be taken from a variety of sources to ensure to have
all the various nutrients, seek information from many sources. This will
open your mind to the endless possibilities. Opinions can be wrong, even
facts can be mistaken. But the truth has many sides from different perspectives.
The more you welcome different ways to see, the closer you are to grasp
the whole truth of the world.
Just because something is scary doesn't mean that it's going to hurt you.
Just because something hurts you doesn't mean that it's not what you need.
Just because someone claims to love you doesn't mean that they'll give you
The truth is much more complex than black and white, everything is and the
whole shades in between. It all depends on how you look at it. Even a bad
situation can be reframed into an opportunity to make the best out of it.
Giving a chance to what look preposterous can help you to finally have the
right common sense... Just because something is accepted as gospel doesn't
make it right for everyone at all times.
Time and people changes, so does your need, and so should be your knowledge.
The best for you won't be the best for someone else. The best of the best
in a situation can be the worst in another.
Always keep your mind open to the possibilities.
In quantum physics, the laws change whether or not there's an observer.
Everything happens at once on the atomic level, unless there's the awareness
of a sentient being, then only one path is chosen.
Your thoughts have the power to forge the very universe, but while you're
on a path, all the other possibilities keep existing even if they're out
of sight, they are there, in this universe.
You have the power to forge your own reality, but believing a lie won't
make it true.
Reach out to new knowledge and never stop learning. Never assume that you're
completely right or that someone else is completely wrong.
The truth is everything. Keep your brain healthy and your mind open to possibilities.
Knowledge will come to you, take the time to welcome it~ Nurture it and
Don't be complacent in mediocrity; something worth doing is worth doing
right. Write properly instead to indulge in bad habits because it's easier.
Doing it right will become just as easy as doing it wrong once you get used
to it. Don't spread wrongs into the world otherwise this is the world that
you'll have to live in. A small step is all that it takes to start changing
yourself, your life and the whole world. Everything is always in motion;
make sure that you steer in the direction that you truly want. That responsibility
is your power.
The purpose of life is simply to live. To gain a variety of new experiences.
That will enrich the collective mind across the ages, thanks to all forms
of life as a whole. Together they make everything possible, in one form
or another. Birds fly, fishes breathe under water, jellyfishes glow in the
dark... and you never know what can be possible for you until you try long
enough to find out~
