Trevor Aaronson: How this FBI strategy is actually creating US-based terrorists
Yes, just as the treatment of addicts will never be erradicated. It's like the cigarette companies which offers the solution and the poison. Shouldn't be legal. Alexander G. Schauss who used high doses of vitamins successfully to treat addicts with heroin, cocaine and crack got this response: "The US government does not recommend this, because “80% of the addictions rehabilitation field of workers would be out of a job” if this therapy was widely promoted. That’s how effective it is. Alexander G. Schauss, PhD, FACN, is the Senior Director of Natural and Medicinal Products Research, AIBMR Life Sciences, in Puyallup, Washington. He shares his remarkable experience in treating addicts with – of all things – high doses of Vitamin C. (Vitamin C has been found to occupy opioid receptor sites.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18mPJFajlrU

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame
And who is the peoples rolemodels? Well, maybe not, but the goverments. Maybe they could stop trashing our privacy and looking into our lives as we are people without any integrity, we will do the same cruel thing to others. I honestly this public shaming has a connection to this. Maybe goverments and corporations WITHOUT pschopathic traits would make us better human beings. Maybe a system that doesn't profit on wars, suffering and exploitation. Where money, power and status is the most important thing. The anger and frustration feel today is unfortunately distributed amongst people instead against the system and the crazy world we live in. Fix the root instead of the effect. Maybe we could start in school. Where kids are sent alone to this concrete buildings trying to survive an extremly hostile enviroment. Starting to bullying to not be bullied. To become rock solid and remove their sensitivity. A school where results are more important than anything else. A school which can be compared to a prison. Where there is no room for feelings, life or grownups. No instead we talk about the effect of this fckd up system. I also react this way because I am afraid of the opinion being pushed to censor and limit the freedom online. Internet must stay free to all cost, even at the cost of bullying right now. Even so, i think it's horrible that it happens. Really. No one should outstand such thing.

Guy Winch: Why we all need to practice emotional first aid
Concur, and I like your metaphor :) I agree breathing can be a distraction, but at the same time you somehow connect inwards when you breathe and look into the third-eye at the same time. I usually think for myself; To balance on one foot I need to focus my attention to one spot, and the same works to find balance for my feelings and thoughts. I wouldn't consider that a distraction if it has a purpose a concious intention to not distract myself from what I feel. Even so, practicing without the breathing is really good too! Mindfullness is even better for your emotional hygiene. In the end I think it's the intention of what you are doing that counts. It's a fascinating to think about it overall. You are so alone. No one can really help you. You are left all alone in this vast fantasy of the mind, battling with these emotional wounds. Poor human beings, in the future we will probably think how people could outstand such, in my opinion, torture. Just looking back a few decades and the treatments (lobotomy)...

Guy Winch: Why we all need to practice emotional first aid
Distraction? Weird suggestion, I thought that is what human beings do all the time....Distraction from the distractions distraction. I guess it can be necessary sometimes to not start a negative cycle, but still I find it weird. ACT (acceptance cognitive therapy) is completley the other way around - accept and breathe through whatever you feel. Personally, I find both strategies to work. As a regular meditator I prefer the ACT though. It can be hard to do it if the negative cycle has gone too far though. Interesting perspective and a giving presentation!

Kare Anderson: Be an opportunity maker
I'll try work with you by responding to your comment :) I think internet is the perfect place to find and work together with others. Right now I think it is kind of restricted though, as we can see here, we only use words. Maybe I would like to draw something (but I won't because I am terrible at it). Or share a picture, or a sound, whatever. The way we communicate on internet needs to take a step furhter I think. Right now the current way of commenting seems pretty obsolete. Woho, I can "thumbs up", but how much does that say really? I would like to see people being able to tag different comments, so I can quickly zoom in on, and connect with comments that are on the same thing. Maybe create a system which makes conversations a lot more deeper but at the same time be able to get a quick and comprehended overview. Secondly, I find it hard to connect with people on the internet. There are many loose contacts, conversations and so forth. It is pretty hard to have time or energy to put in to a deep and giving conversation, such as this. You might not even respond, or you respond 1 year later, it will significant hinder our progress of accomplishing anything. And right now, there is no place on the internet that can act as a playground of creativity. I believe we will see a whole new level on the internet, when things get a lot more interactive via different modules that can be attached to computers for example. But there is actually a place, called Minecraft (a video game). Minecraft actually has the potential to be a platform where people with the same interests could meet, discuss and create in this viritual world. This viritual-brainstorming-mutal-creativity-explosion where there are no limits or boundraries, just in your mind. I'm sure this will happen, perhaps it already has.

What necessity, desire or dream do you wish accomplished but seems impossible?
Check the web in about 6 months and you will see a the world setting sail towards something big. Project is called Cpt.Free - Navigating the heart of humanity. TED made it possible. Nothing is too big and remember to never give up! “I am a sailor, you're my first mate We signed on together, we coupled our fate Hauled up our anchor, determined not to fail For the heart's treasure, together we set sail With no maps to guide us, we steered our own course Rode out the storms when the winds were gale force Sat out the doldrums in patience and hope Working together, we learned how to cope. Life is an ocean and love it a boat In troubled waters it keeps us afloat When we started the voyage there was just me and you Now gathered round us we have our own crew Together we're in this relationship We built it with care to last the whole trip Our true destination's not marked on any chart We're navigating the shores of the heart” ― John McDermott

Tim Harford: Trial, error and the God complex
As much as you don't understand his point, I don't understand yours... But based on what I read you are saying: 1. There was no message. 2. Trial and error doesn't go in hand with God complex. The message to me was that we are all trying to be Gods because we don't have the energy, will or desire to get our "little world"(mind) challenged. Therefore we will play Gods and dismiss all other possible solutions. Including trial and error. When writing this, I can understand your comment about it not going perfectly hand in hand. Even if they don't, what does it matter? Trial and error is a great lesson to be learned. Even TEDtalk can not be perfect and shall not be.
