  1. Those poor Victorian era wives

    Wish, to do the same, but with pants. This could be enough to not worry about anything.
  2. Living in the Anthropocene Age

    True! Unfortunately this is so. This state is so far from harmonious. I would even say they are polar.
  3. Road Trip

    Great trip. Thanks for sharing. Motorcycle ideal vehicle for such a road. That case when the bigger the car, the bigger the problem
  4. Living in the Anthropocene Age

    I think this is true. Those who pursue big profits will never stop this process on their own. There is many processes in their hands, and most likely they will go until the end, and will not stop. It is necessary to get change the consciousness of many people , then the value system has changed, new people should be carried away for their ideas got the masses, and then it will be possible to rebuild the world. But this seems to me almost impossible. Usually big changes occur after major disasters, when the old is destroyed to the ground and appear the possibility to build a new one. It seems to me that the most realistic scenario for the return of humanity to nature is a huge planetary catastrophe. After which everything will be destroyed, and the land will be devastated. Nature will slowly recover and the surviving people will be able to start building a new world. Humanity will be forced to return to nature. Perhaps we, as humanity, are going back to nature in such a paradoxical way - bringing the world closer to a catastrophe, bringing everything to the limit, beyond which there will be drastic changes and everything will turn 180 degrees! After all, according to Taoism, this is the law of our world - the limit of yang gives rise to yin and vice versa.
  5. What did you buy recently that does the job !

    Perfect solution! I dreamed of such a portable device when I was working far outside the workshop. Cypress pine boards also look perfect. Good deal!
  6. The Cool Picture Thread

    Thanks for this photo. It looks very unusual and incredibly beautiful. Where is this place?
  7. Dancing Reverses the signs of aging​​​​​​​

    I have always believed that dance is an excellent physical exercise that combines mental activity and simultaneously involves the whole body. And really, dance often implies a certain degree of inner harmony, harmony of movements and balance (as rightly pointed out in the article). And from the point of view of the principles of Qigong, Dance can certainly have a strong therapeutic effect.
  8. Tulsi (Holy Basil)

    Thanks for this comment. It is an important note. Interesting how it retains its healing properties when grown in the garden or at home. And yes, sure, it will be correct to call this plant Holy Basil, not just Basil.
  9. Tulsi (Holy Basil)

    Thanks for the topic, Fa Xin ! I looked at the healing properties of basil, and was surprised. The list of beneficial effects on the body is really impressive. I will definitely explore basil on myself! By the way, it was noted that it has such a strong effect that doctors do not recommend using basil in large doses.
  10. The best antidepressant

    Interesting. Maybe that's why I like these products so much. Recently, I ate spinach every day for several days in a row, and noticed that my organism seemed to be happy to receive such food!
  11. Native American Quote

    Whitesilk, thanks for the quote! This is a very reasonable speculation. And in my opinion, this coincides with the Taoist approach.
  12. Rocket Science

    True, but... The idea of arranging a huge radioactive dump on the Earth actually is no better. But this has already been done. So mankind have already crossed the line beyond which bad ideas become reality. Unfortunately...
  13. Hong Kong Vat People

    In order for this to become a reality, a prerequisite is needed. Now a large number of people in the world do not have a livelihood, many feel unnecessary in the world. I have never thought about it before, but I think this is really possible, since many people are desperate.
  14. Living Hobbit Wild

    Oh yes. Such dwellings is very beautiful and comfortable. After all, the Taoists also live and practice in caves, although their homes are much more modest. By the way, in China there are huge number of people still living in cave houses, like this:
  15. The Cool Picture Thread

    It seems that my fears are justified. I have three more questions: Does it live in the area where you live? Were there cases of their attacks on people? Is it suitable for Chinese food?
