Same ol’ same ol’. Stuffs.
Decided to drop by one of my neighbours, this time around: MomenTech. I quite liked it, especially the one with the TED talk. Especially coming from the Eastern world + has been called ‘monk-ish’ or ‘zen’ by my Western friends. Just a little side note: growing up, none of my friends considered my to be as such. I will come back to try + give my contribution to the topic of meditation later in a different post.
A coincidence, maybe (if you believe in serendipity), I was (still am, really) in the middle of watching Manfred Mohr’s YouTube channel videos. In this post, I’m going to put only his 16mm shorts from the channel (made using FORTRAN IV + CDC 6400, recorded using DATAGRAPHIX 4460 whose results were then digitized). Question is: do you consider this meditative? I don’t know what it’s called, but for me they calm me down, a similar effect MusicforProgramming series do to my ears—a state I look for everytime I work.
So, enjoy… I guess?!
