Pattie Maes + Pranav Mistry: Meet the SixthSense interaction
The more money a company is willing to spend will determine how economical their toilet-paper will be rated on this list. The internet is a perfect example of how this is going to end up. Always starts out hope-filled and promising but tends to evolve into something else.

Do YOU dream?
Last night I dreamed there were 3 full moons in the sky. As I stood there astonished, they suddenly came crashing down to earth, one by one, destroying the cities around me. There was a lot of fire and concrete rubble flying around. Yet I wasn't much afraid. Anyone care to try their hand at an interpretation?

Alternative for Democracy
The Republic was a significant improvement to democracy. Unfortunately, we're presently witnessing exactly how an uneducated, immoral, and divided vulgus can create opportunity for criminals to rip a republic apart at the highest levels.

We are advised to travel light when we undertake a journey.Why can't we travel light in our lives too to make it beautiful and enjoyable?
I renounced all of my material wealth last year. It is a step towards true freedom. Deciding who to place the burden of my wealth on wasn't as easy. I didn't want to remove my own chains and clamp them on anyone else. Christ instructs us to give it all to the poor. Perhaps because this is where the greatest impact can be achieved. Everything we possess is unconsciously given a certain amount of control over us. Many people become almost entirely enslaved to worldly possessions. They spend much of their life in pursuit of material gain, and the rest of their life is spent maintaining, protecting, and worrying over their acquisitions. In effect, they have lost their life. "Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it." Luke 17:30 For me, the greatest burden was sin. Or rather, it was until Christ. I must confess, I am both surprised and excited to come across someone else who is entertaining these thoughts. A big thumbs up for you Adesh.

Have you ever encountered a person who seeks your council, but does not even acknowledge your opinion?
I've learned that unsolicited advice usually goes unheard, no matter how enlightened it is. This is because the person is not truly interested in your recommendations. I understand the advice you offered was solicited, but it fell on the same deaf-ears. This tells me that the person wasn't actually looking for advice. They were either looking for confirmation for their preconceived conclusions, or they were trying to solicit emotional support. Find a new person to look up to. Arrogance needs to feed. Such individuals only have enough room for 1 person in their life, everyone else is just the source of a meal.

Is there any way to prevent religious debates from turning into a big fight?
Speak only the truth, which has been revealed to you, and don't allow yourself to be provoked. It is admirable to protect the feelings of the individuals you are in deep conversation with. Truth can wound or it can heal. When you use the truth to deliberately harm, the truth may be removed from your heart. And if you use the truth to heal and edify, you may be entrusted with more. Consider Jesus Christ, the Messiah to both Islam and Christendom. Even He and his disciples found themselves in situations where the people became very "passionate". Even with their amazing skill in speech, their delicacy, love, patience, and the miracles; the people still crucified, imprisoned, stoned, beheaded, clubbed, and lanced them. It would seem that persecution for our beliefs is part of the territory. First you need to know the truth, then you need the courage to speak it.
