There is an over-whelming, exhaustive-flood of so-called “information”… a raging mud-flood of a virtual-kind on-line–the internet/the media, in print, etc….caution is needed… so as not to drown!! And to stay afloat/alive in the pure-*sea-of-Accuracy!!:)

(*Sea/see…positive results aka wisdom is proved true by clear evidence.)

(That’s where i choose to swim (*see results); in safe waters (of accuracy) without sharks, snakes, profiteers, etc., Piranha!-OUCH.)

am very selective about my mind-food…(If we are what we eat, i wanna be sweet and not bitter!😉 and healthy, happy, and hopeful. 🙂

{So much so-called “information” “knowledge” is tainted by bias, self-serving-opinion, and extreme-emotion or power-money-motive..in my POV;)}

i thoroughly “respect” this ancient-Biblical warning:

The words of the wise are like oxgoads, and their collected sayings are like firmly embedded nails; they have been given from one shepherd. 12 As for anything besides these, my son, be warned: To the making of many books there is no end, and much devotion to them is wearisome to the flesh. Ecclesiastes 12:12…

3 “Curiosity has long been a human trait. The dangers of wasting too much time in the pursuit of useless or even harmful information were recognized back in the days of King Solomon.”

i am a learner… and value study/research–“accuracy” every day: to aid in sound-balanced-accurate decision-making that doesn’t endanger/hurt my life or fellow-fragile-life or cut it short..

 Some individuals have become information addicts, always feeding an insatiable desire to be up-to-date while neglecting more important things. Others acquire partial information about complex fields of knowledge and then view themselves as experts. Based on only a limited understanding, they may make crucial decisions that can cause harm to themselves or to others. And always present is the danger of exposure to false or inaccurate information. There is often no reliable way to verify that the flood of information is accurate and balanced. w 5/1/00 par. 2

Is it a “trap” to fall into mind-binge-eating?! Is one mind/one stomach “actually” capable of or have legitimate accessibility to all known mind-food out there?! Does the “arrogant” mind-binger say… “hmmm, I know-it-all because I’ve eaten it all…the (junk??) food out there/readily available aka anything/everything I can get my mind on… and am now left empty or with sour stomach/indigestion or worse (and unsatisfied and still hungry)… so (is it “reasonable” for the junk-food mind-binger to conclude), there must not exist “any” healthy, whole, nutritious, satisfying-truth-food?!”

Just like physical food choices have short/long-term positive or negative health affects…

 Personally, my mind-appetite is always satisfied by scripture…

16 I applied my heart to acquire wisdom and to see all the activity* happening on the earth,+ even going without sleep day and night.* 17 Then I considered all the work of the true God, and I realized that mankind cannot comprehend what happens under the sun.+ No matter how hard men try, they cannot comprehend it. Even if they claim that they are wise enough to know, they cannot really comprehend it.+ Ecclesiastes chapter 8.

“Sounds of Life” are You Listening??! aka Sounding It Out!

compassion Joan Winifred literacy mind food sound wisdom

Heard this intriguing phrase “the sounds of life” in an encouraging talk.

How would You describe the “sounds of life” ??

may be? i’d sum up sounds this way:

Boo-Hoo!:(

and

Woo-hoo!:)

 

(Life is full of extreme happy and extreme sad and everything in between these two states…hmmm.)

What sounds are You making/hearing?…(with my mind or with my mouth? or with my fingers pounding my keyboard?)

my mind is looking forward to any time off…in near future, and my body is looking forward to a cup of tea now. My ears are looking forward to an uplifting song…so, i don’t wallow in my own depths of selfishness…so, i can actively pursue compassion today..and keep working!

EnJOY some Sunshine Reader:) and hope You’re life is full of WOO-HOO’s…:) (aka results of wise choices.) Life gets tricky/complicated…it’s like a new compassion language word..sometimes You gotta s-o-u-n-d it out! (aka look to divine wisdom for help.)

Contradicting “POP”-ular “ID”-eas

Joan Winifred literacy

Greetings Fellow-Readers!:)

Recently watched the following…(it caught my attention as a reader of ancient text). Like any book, many reviews circulate, read-to-see (for yourself); of course. Different books affect us differently. Impressive, to me, how this ancient library of 66 books pops ids (bursts bubbles formed from man’s (both ancient and modern) desires for instant/immediate gratification, etc)…aka contradicts popular id-eas (aka ideas which with (enough) time have proved untrue/irrelevant/harmful). “Amazing” how such an “old” book IS relevant to modern living/compassion literacy!!!

Living AT the Library (literally)!

Joan Winifred knowledge language literacy science & spirituality universe

“Man’s search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life,” said Viktor Frankl

School lets out soon…so begins our Summer (schooling) at the Library 5 days a week…(give or take a few). We are at the library (learning regularly throughout the year (literally & otherwise)). However, when so-called “regular” aka “public” school finishes for the year…we’re there (at our local library) supporting various programs, etc.

Speaking of libraries…our “cells are living libraries.” Did You realize? “The information in a bacterial cell would fill a 1,000-page book.” (Have You read a 1,000 page book lately?!)…(Uh-huh!)

How do cells use information? Think of DNA as a collection of recipes, each one involving step-by-step processes, with each step carefully scripted in precise terms. But instead of the end result being a cake or a cookie, it might be a cabbage or a cow. In living cells, of course, the processes are fully automated, adding yet another layer of complexity and sophistication.

Genetic information is stored until it is needed, perhaps to replace worn out or diseased cells with healthy new ones or to pass on traits to offspring. […]Consider one of the smallest organisms, bacteria. German scientist Bernd-Olaf Küppers stated: “Carried over to the realm of human language, the molecular text describing the construction of a bacterial cell would be about the size of a thousand-page book.” For good reason, chemistry professor David Deamer wrote: “One is struck by the complexity of even the simplest form of life.” How does the genome of a human compare? “[It] would fill a library of several thousand volumes,” says Küppers. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

Speaking MGL…

To describe the writing in DNA as “molecular-genetic language” is more than “mere metaphor,” says Küppers. “Like human language,” he points out, “the molecular-genetic language also possesses a syntactic dimension.” Put simply, DNA has a “grammar,” or set of rules, that strictly regulates how its instructions are composed and carried out. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

Intelligence is out there, eh?..(and grammar, too?)..of course, joanie.

People attribute information to intelligence, whether that information is in the form of symbols on clay or signals from space. They do not need to see the information being created to draw that conclusion. Yet, when the most sophisticated code known to man—the chemical code of life—was discovered, many shoved that logic aside, attributing DNA to mindless processes. Is that reasonable? Is it consistent? Is it scientific? A number of respected scientists say no.

Professor Yan-Der Hsuuw is the director of embryo research at Taiwan’s National Pingtung University of Science and Technology. He too once believed in evolution—until his research led him to conclude otherwise. Regarding cell division and specialization, he said: “The right cells must be produced in the right order and at the right places. First they assemble into tissues that will in turn assemble themselves into organs and limbs. What engineer can even dream of writing instructions for such a process? Yet the instructions for embryo development are superbly written in DNA. When I consider the beauty of it all, I’m convinced that life was designed by God.” (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

There are theories…then there are NOT theories:

What qualifies a theory as a scientific theory? According to the Encyclopedia of Scientific Principles, Laws, and Theories, a scientific theory, such as Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity, must

  1. Be observable
  2. Be reproducible by controlled experiments
  3. Make accurate predictions

In that light, where does evolution stand?  Its operation cannot be observed. It cannot be reproduced. And it cannot make accurate predictions. Can evolution even be considered a scientific hypothesis? The same encyclopedia defines a hypothesis as “a more tentative observation of facts [than a theory],” yet lends itself “to deductions that can be experimentally tested.” (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

As a person preferring poetry (and alliteration;)…(Is happy living, happy loving reading?)

“Your eyes even saw me as an embryo; all its parts were written in your book.” (Psalm (song) 139:16)

Of course, David  was using poetic language (i.e. DNA). Nevertheless, in principle, he was right on the mark, which is typical of the Bible writers. None were even slightly influenced by the fanciful folklore or mythology of other ancient peoples. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015)

Makes me ask: Evolutionists…are they slightly influenced by the fanciful?!

(DNA–a space oddity?/God’s (superlatively intelligent) “poetic” living language!)

Looks like we all live at the library, huh? 🙂
