Serotonin is the deep, philosophical, self-defining chemical that governs our most important connection with external reality.

Dopamine is the physical motivation chemical, but serotonin is the one that *inspires* you to become your best possible self, and find your place in the grand experience of the whole universe of space and time. When you are feeling at one with the universe, in pure euphoria, naturally, it’s because serotonin is letting you know that your patterns of biological input and output are literally synchronized with reality’s grand purpose.

A somewhat easy to read scientific explanation of the history of serotonin: Evolutionary ancient roles of serotonin: long-lasting regulation of activity and development.

A discussion about this podcast on Reddit: Serotonin: it’s probably not what you think it is. It’s definitely not what mainstream science and media portray it to be. Serotonin is your soul, which comes online around age 39.75.

The Big Picture:

My big goal that is getting very much closer, thanks to generous donations, is starting a non-profit community resource hub with resident artists, techies, and educators all working with the community to find creative solutions using available resources to serve the needs of the community members freely and unconditionally so that everyone can be their best possible selves. I’m currently (Summer 2018) starting to seriously look for (very cheap) property, ideally an old farm, probably in mid-coast Maine, and seeking folks who can help figure out the legal stuff of starting a non-profit or whatever, and putting the property into a trust so that it’s always there to serve the needs of those who live there.

I’ve also created a Patreon creator account for those who believe that my work is valuable and who have an excess number of banking points (aka $’s, £’s, ¥, or whatever).

TWTS – What is This Thing?

TWTS – Episode 67 – What is This Thing?

A little wandering exploration of one of the most basic elements of the universe, the it-y “thingness” of each of the individual elements within reality, from atoms to alligators to Alisons.

These “its” are all about containment, stability, and separation/connection to the rest of existence.

And there are levels. The more boring things are pretty compact and stable. What is “you”, on the other hand, is much more fuzzy, with the center of you being the electromagnetic matter that forms your body, and the edges of you being the little bits of you that are more free flowing outward into the rest of the universe, only held moderately closely to your center through the gravity that holds humanity close to the Earth.

Is what you’re trying to do really important to you to do? But what you’re doing just isn’t working? Are all of your efforts being rejected by whomever you’re trying to help, yourself, your friend/family/companion, your community, your whole culture?

Look at offering help on a different level, then.

There are four basic levels of offering good things to reality:

Physical: first person offerings to the outside environment

Emotional: second person offerings to someone you are close to

Intellectual: third person offerings to the larger infrastructure of the system/group you are a part of

Philosophical: fourth person offerings to the whole world (and beyond)

If you’re failing to accomplish your goals of improving things on one level, try to do something useful at one of the other levels that will indirectly help things at the level you care about most.
