Wolfe's law

It states that continual use builds your body, but overuse breaks it down. So why build. Why train the body. Deterioration of the body is natural. There is nothing you can do about it. What you can do, is you can help keep it strong and useful longer.
Something I have been thinking about for the past year is "unbalanced training" I like to call it.

Never doing the same exercises more than 1 day a week. Constant changing will keep the body fit and minimise damage and overtraining. Your body will have to adapt to these constant changes which will have positive benefits to you.
The fact is your body can't be at it's best of worst for any extended period. If it does you will face negative feedback such as illness and other issues. What I propose is a constant fluctuating fitness routine moving in and out of different fitness levels.
Lets say fitness is a line like the one bellow (simplistic example).



What will happen is you will move from different levels of fitness and health creating a zigzag or wave effect that I think is the key to remaining healthy and fit for extended periods of time. Plus it allows for periods of inactivity and eating various foods. This is just a small portion of the system and how it works.

Yoga Mornings

Having slacked of my routine of Yoga in the morning. I have started again this week and I'm feeling pretty good. Here are my four asana’s and one bandha that I'm doing. There pretty much group A asana’s but they do wonders if you're patient.

1) Tree Posture 1: Vrksasana

2) Flying bird foward bend: Padakastasana

3) Supported plough posture: Halasana

4) Warrior posture: Virasana

5) Abdominal Uplift: Uddiyana (This is a Bandha. A muscle lock of the abdominal muscles)

The Da Vinci Code

Dan Brown author of the Da Vinci code and Angels and Demons. Brings us once again into the world of secret ancient societies and cults with top-notch suspense and action in his latest work The Da Vinci code. Being a sucker for this type of stuff here is a site on The Priory of Sion one of the societies he uses in the book.
A childhood fantasy was that I was part of one of these societies that used ancient symbolism in modern technology. In so doing discovered the interconnectivity of humanity. Having this knowledge of course gave the initiates a deep understanding of humans and society. This knowledge of course gave them power, which needed to be hidden, and strictly controlled. Maybe some of these societies think they have some sort of hidden knowledge that can’t be given to us plebs. Who knows maybe they do.

I'm really baffled about blogging. I'm trying to put links on for some useful information but it seems that people want to know more about what some person they don't even know is doing at home. Are people's lives so damn boring that reading about someone’s’ adventures to the bathroom is worth reading about? Christ! I don't care what someone did last night, I don't care that someone bought a green jacket instead of a blue one. Why is anyone giving a shit! Maybe I’m missing the point and I should start reading about a stranger’s trip to the local convenience store and how he likes Coke rather than Pepsi. Anywho back to the important stuff. "what I did last night" hehe.

Memory artist

the artist Franco Magnani Paints only from memory. It's amazing to see how some images are seen as if through a child’s eyes, others are fragmented and distorted images of his old home in Italy's North. He also seems to have attached some images with other memories like his mother. Interesting work.

One of my favourite music artists Loreena McKennitt. She's been a bit quiet for over a year now. I hope she comes out with something new soon.

Damn template

Damn blogger has decided to corrupt my template and replace it with another. Oh well guess this is as good a time for a change as any.


3 way art
Could it be possible to create an art piece be it painting, ceramics, sculpture ect that needs to be placed at 3 different locations. Only to be seen completely and correctly if seen from three wholly different perspectives. You could have net cameras showing the other piece in Italy from behind and the other in France showing the piece from below. Then you could put all these views together and see it in it's full form in Australia for example. In the other countries they would be the same piece but with a unique perspectives of there own.
