I was watching this random documentary about agriculture and it occurred to me that documentaries are really easy things to lose yourself into, so I thought about creating a thread to share and discuss any interesting documentary about anything that might be entertaining.

Documentaries can get political so try to tone it down and not argue their ideological merits here if it comes to that.

Quiet dude that lives in Anchorage, Alaska.
His videos mainly consist of him recording the generally mundane day to day aspects of normie life, he records a variety of things from airshows, parades, trips to seattle and japan, campfires, his walks around anchorage, to just recording swans or mooses wandering around.
He records a lot of things that it's hard for me to really do it justice.
I think his description sums it up pretty well.
"Just videos of my travels and wanderings, for all to enjoy."

How does one meditate? I want to try it, but I’m not quite sure how to go about it. I have tried somewhat before but I didn’t get much out of it.

 No.58163

The standard zen method is pretty straightforward. Sit in seiza or crosslegged if you'd rather, don't close your eyes fully, but almost, so that you can barely see anything (the point is not to fall asleep, but be conscious the whole time) and try to let your thoughts go freely without focusing on any specific topic. Thoughts will come, but you have to let them go as well, and not linger on any of them. Think of it as letting them pass in front of you, without you either interfering or reacting to them. It's commonly said that you should focus on your breathing, as this sort of a focus will pull you out if you start dwelling on something involountarily. Some people also use sounds to help them, like a recitation of specific texts, or some basic rythmic musical sound.
Starting out even 10 minute long session may be difficult, as you will most likely have trouble letting go of thoughts that stress you out or make you feel any emotions. Plus just sitting like that on the ground may make you feel discomfort. Either way, good luck.

This. Some minor additions: If you experience knee pain, stop and spend some time loosening your hips and legs. If you experience lower back pain, roll your hips slightly forward. If you feel tension in your diaphragm as you draw breath down to the hara, let it out as you exhale. If you feel constricted, sit on a taller zafu. I still sit burmese or half lotus most of the time, it doesn't matter as long as you are rooted and stable.

Zazen is almost a form of anti-meditation, so don't worry about getting anything out of it. The image that comes to mind is your body is as still and solid as a mountain, but your spine is supple and gently reaching upwards like a flower's stem. Once you're in the posture everything else works itself out.

I had gone to a Xian school and to church on and off as an adult. Somwhere during that time I was on this thing called Youtube and it led me to atheism. I eventually found my way to agnostcism, that we can't/don't know, an non-anthropic God entity, etc. I currently listen to the Xian street preachers and "feel drawn to the spirit". This is a spirit of fear, either of God or Satan. For clarity, I'm not dismissing that fear. Instead, it is what has led me to seek the LHP.

Watching the movie "The Exorcist" gave me a sense of fear. To me, it is like the Chinese food that is commercially popular. It may not be authentic, but it is at least different. The sense of fear and anxiety that I expereinced watching that movie for the first time did not really compare to anything Xian. More to the point, I actually saw the movie, whereas I only imagined Hell.

I happen to think that what happened to Regan is possible. I have come across with I would guess are not very effective methods of protection such as placing a piece of silver on the Ouija board, not letting it spell Zozo or go in 8s, carrying it in a black bag and…not doing it by yourself.

At this point, because of having done what I consider good spiritual practices, and having renewed my interest in Xianity prior to considering Satanism, I don't know what to do with myself spiritually. I don't have the knowledge or experience to say I'm ready to go in this direction. However, I've grown weary of online forums and non-Spiritual research in general. That is to say, there is an element of secularism even in researching Spiritual things, and at this point I am seriously considering doing a "Hail Mary" and messing with the Ouija boord (by myself) and perhaps other Occult/Magick practices.

I don't know how popular the chad/beta ranking is on this board but let me just say if you are not a chad then magick could be your way out of being beta.

Also, I acknowledge I received a warning.

So, Walt says that Hank's name is Hank and that the nazis should let him go because of that, and his offering. The nazis ask for Hank's opinion on this. By replying that his name is Isaac Schrader instead of Hank Schrader, he is telling the nazis, through biblical allusion, that he wishes to be sacrificed to God (his ideals) rather than to be saved.

The Witcher on Netflix.
Overall I liked it because it has a determinism message but all the scenes with Yennefer were really unnecessary

Just finished binging all 4 seasons of "La casa de papel". It's on Netflix and initially I was put off by the generic sounding name "Money Heist", but holy shit is it good. It's like the best part of every heist movie, condensed into a series with really intense scenarios each episode and great characters.

There's an English dub, but it's much better in original Spanish.

Been getting tired of depending on corporate America providing for me, I want to get into farming and gardening, saving my money and resources to eventually build a self sufficient farm so I can fully sequester myself from modern culture.

Thing is, I'm an idiot and I know nothing about farming, how to do it, how to get started, stuff that I could start at home to accustom myself to the lifestyle. I'm relatively fit but have no knowledge, any pointers would be much appreciated.

there is also a wild black cherry tree on the side, it produces tiny cherries the size of blueberries. also no problems with that

I need an arborist to remove my existing trees before I can plant fruit trees. I can't afford to have any more shade in my yard than I have already for the sake of my vegetables. I have an old ash tree with many dead brittle limbs that break off and will probably fall on my head and kill me someday when I am raking leaves. There's a white alder with a case of mistletoe and a few oaks that dumb acorns everywhere which the birds pick up and scatter around the yard. The only tree worth saving is a pomegranate tree.

There's a possibility I could saw down the weeping cherry tree in the front yard (it's strictly decorative and does not produce edible fruit) and replace it with an apple tree or something. There's a lemon tree in a neighboring yard with branches growing over the fence but they are Meyer lemons which are basically useless.

D-Wave has been offering a free minute of quantum computation if you sign up with them. I've been playing around doing toy problems on it. This stuff really does amaze me. I've been playing around for juts the past couple weeks on one of these systems, and I believe the hype. What do you guys think about quantum computing?

Btw, I mentioned this in the Minecraft/Minetest thread (>>/games/52987), but Qiskit has been interesting for me to play around with.

Alright, so to summarize your opinion, if we had the exact same thread in /hob/ as the programming thread (because that's what I was suggesting in >>57688 before you blew an emotional gasket spewing ad hominems (which I must say is quite a female thing to do)), only it was explicitly quantum programming, that's still an issue.
