About Chandra

Bio

I am flawed but I am great. I try keep in the forefront of my mind, the things, the people, and the beliefs, that will genuinely bring me happiness, peace and comfort. Some have fear and loathing in las vegas and some have fear and loathing in springfield, but those of us who make it out alive need to remember what a f*Cking trip that was and to be grateful we have an opportunity to reflect. I have learned some great things from the bottom of the barrel but I have learned a lot more from being at the top now look down.
I have a desire to know everything. Its one of my flaws in that I get frustrated when i don't have a reason for something that I feel should be so simple. I mean Jesus couldn't have put it more simpler, and we complicated love and turned it to war....
I love the study of science as well as the study and pursuit of spiritual truth. I have to be careful though and remember when to say oh well its not the time for me to work this out just yet. I do however, think its important if not mandatory, that we question everything that doesn't make sense to us. Why live in a manor where we navigate in the dark, when all we have to do is create some light. Even the smallest spark brings light in the infinite darkness. And all darkness is, is just an absence of will. I not going to even quote the cliche :).
I think we should take some time and remember a quote the great Albus Dumbledore once said, " Help will always be given to those who ask for it." God will give you whatever your heart desires, but make sure that you will want to desire whatever it maybe, forever.

What are human rights? How do we decide and are they universal?
every time i try to pick my point on this i keep finding a way to contradict my own thought, but ill try and make one any way. we have an individual right to try and maintain our own life. by observing nature and society it seems that co-existing in groups helps beings to do this. there are ever changing sub rights that are specifically determined by an extensive algorithm that has evolved with the developing brain over an individuals life. the right to take life might be true when all the variables show that the individuals life is going to be compromised. with in the same parameters the right to steal can be possible to sustain life but doing so the individual accepts that the other then has obtained a right to kill. with out rambling on and on i think you can see what my point is (hopefully). The only concrete born right is the right to live, situations bring forth and take away non concrete rights. um on a lighter note i just saved a bunch of money by switching my car insurance to geico!

How to effectively reduce alarm fatigue in hospitals?
Make alarms that are sensitive and precise. So that they are novel enough to insight a response. If heart monitors set of code blues all the time then the mortality rate would be great but the reason that alarm is sensitive is because its governed by a reliable moderator. If IV tubing was less prone to getting kinks, if pulse ox had a consistant way of staying on and deliver constant data, if O2 delivery was comfortable, these alarms wouldn't happen. the human element isn't the primary reason. the lack of human is. the lack of pt interaction in general is causing this fatigue. our pt's are numbers on a computer and their bodies are about as important and the interactive mannequin we had in school. until we change the back to pt first and first touch then we won't solve the urgency in health care

Can a map of the Brain really explain the complexities of consciousness?
i don't believe that mapping the brain has anything to do with out figuring out consciousness. All mapping can do is explain memory, reflex, muscle memory, pathology of disease, and other functional actions. Thoughts might be results of synapses and new connections, but the evaluation of our thoughts and rationalizing them, i feel, is something not residing in the structural components of the brain. Some schizophrenics see things and hear things, but they know and understand that they are part of a physiological disease or miswiring. this awareness is something that isn't observed in the form of matter but possibly a non recognized energy.

We can learn by exchanging and discussing our own lists of "10 Things I Know to be True."
1. We must understand why something is false, before we can really understand why something is true (assuming there are universal truths) 2. Action is the best advice 3. Human interaction is necessary for expansion of knowledge 4. Death is certain for everyone 5. Love is the catalyst for social peace 6. The smallest truth out weighs the most massive lie 7. I exist 8. The past and the future don't exist 9. Smiling makes you feel better 10. There is no such thing as a universal rock bottom

It seems the conversationalists herein have relegated the golden rule to the world’s list of bad ideas.
Phillip i feel i that i didn't adequately address the question that was asked, so thats why i think you misinterperated what i said. To answer the original question, i think that people have both points of views about peace is, collective and individual. I believe it is collective for the reason that if you want just individual peace, yet you fail to awknoledge the community, they you will have a hard time finding peace, that is unless you move to tibet and seek peace for motives of spiritual enlightenment. excluding the dali lama, we all have to realize we are party of society so failure to live ones life accordingly is a statement that you don't care and should have no judgement about what happens to you. Its been seen in histroy with the story of christ, and a more modern individual Gandhi. Both Acted not simply preached and Nations were changed, which changed the world. I would also like to agree with you about how the times were in are showing people striving for change, but the problem here is that mass media only shows the negative side. If a population could be cut off from mass media then their efforts would have a greater efficacy, but until then even though we see them doing good, others are brought back down in motivation by still hearing negative stories even if those stories have little social impact. its in our nature to recall the bad not the good. * I also have ADD and its hard for me to transcribe my thoughts to type in a linear manor so i apologize if my logic is hard to follow.

Marc Koska: 1.3m reasons to re-invent the syringe
i like his idea because in areas where people do get syringes out a dump or try and recycle them, they would have no effect. but why would china, who recycles syringes, buy ones that can't be recycled? on a lighter note i just saved a bunch of money on car insurance by switching to geico.
