    Twitter style and tone

    Do you hate it like me. What do you hate most? This hate is a feature not bug isn’t it? what does thinking in tweets do to people? There’s something very dishonest. Is that about a collapse of nuance?

    Smartphone addiction

    Another way to put it is the phone is home now. and I don't like it, I'm addicted and I don't like it. I'd like to try to cut it out completely but there are some things that prevent me: work mainly, also whatsapp, spotify, citymapper and dating apps. Do you have any techniques to reduce time on...

    F A N T A S I E S

    I was just listening to a song and started daydreaming about being on stage and my dance moves were blowing minds. Then I made eye contact with a girl and gave her a smirk and then carried on blowing minds. Tell us some of yours!

    Do you sing? Not for others just the spontaneous eruption maybe because you feel great or just like a song a lot. I do when I’m in a great mood. In the best moods I make up songs. I can find other people singing very comforting, my dad singing nonsense enraged me as a teenager and now I love it...

I’m interested in the types of places you were in when you wrote things that you felt were meaningful or succeeded in some way. And it doesn’t have to be published stuff, it could be text messages or tweets. I’m...

    Psychedelic Research

    There seems to be much more research into the transformative qualities of psychedelics (taken in the right context) over the past few years. Especially for the treatment of depression, anxiety and addiction. It's about time they were taken seriously again, people seem to have learnt from the...
