Mozarts Sonata for Two Pianos K448

Mozarts Sonata for Two Pianos K448
http://www.indiana.edu/~pietsch/zoemozart.html is also supposed to be good for the mind.

John Rutter is so underplayed in my opinion. Karl Jenkins is another favourite.

I Pod you not ,I hear the BBC's podcasting experiment is making high quality programming available for download as MP3’s for listening to on MP3 players (not just iPod’s! You just need an MP3 player, and iTunes is free and the best available).

BBC Radio 3 is making all of his symphonies available for download over the next few weeks. Symphonies 1 to 5 are available now, and the remaining ones will be available to download over the course of the next month for a week after broadcast.

How come no one managed to nab the copyrights on these works ?

The Queen has her very own silver iPod.

A little Mixed Up

Just a line to say I'm living
That I'm not among the dead
Though I'm getting more forgetful
And mixed up in the head.
I've got used to my arthritis
To my dentures I'm resigned
I can mange my bifocals
But oh God, I miss my mind.
For sometimes I can't remember
When I stand at the foot of the stairs
If I must go up for something
Or If I've just come down from there
And before the refridge so often
My poor mind is filled with doubt
Have I just put food away, or
Have I come to take some out.
And there are times when it is darjk
With my nightcap on my head
I don't know if I'm retiring
Or just getting out of bed.
So if it's my turn to write you
There's no need of getting sore
I may think that I have written
And don't want to be a bore.
So remember I do love you
And I wish you were near
But now it's nearly mail time
So I must say "Goodbye Dear."
There I stood beside the mailbox
With a face so very red
Instead of mailing you my letter
I opened it instead!

Reiki Healing

I did enquire at the doctors whether Reiki Healing might be available on the NHS.
Here's a blurb about what it is.

Health is wealth. This old saying raises new interest in the present era. Humans are realising the imporance of complimentary therapies along with conventional medecine to achieve holistic health. Reiki is such a complimentary therapy that works at all levels of being i.e. physical, mental and spiritual.

What is Reiki ?Reiki is a Japanese term which means 'universal life energy' the energy that lives in all creation and is inherent to all living beings; nourishes them and keeps them alive.
Dr Usui, a Japanese theologist re-discovered the Reiki as a natural method of healing. Following a prolonged period of meditation, he acquired this art of healing and transferring reiki energy to others. A reiki therapist is a person whose energy centres are attuned to act as a chanel and vibrate higher amounts of energy. A reiki therapist can help accelerate the healing process by transferring this magnetic energy to the healer through his/her hands.

What Reiki is not !Reiki is not a religion, as it holds no doctrine. It is a very ancient science or technology hidden in th eTibetan sutras and was re-discovered by Dr Usui for human well-being.

Benefits of Reiki

Those who use Reiki often feel as if their inner energy is enhanced. Emotional energy blocks in the form of conflicts are released leading to greater relaxation. toxins of various sorts are removed and greater vitality and stimulation of body is experienced. Reiki helps reklease blocks that causes disease and pain. It activates and transforms inner energy and helps enhance immunity.

Importance of Healee
In reiki therapy , Healee is not a passive personality but plays a crucial role in his own treatment. Because reiki is never given or sent but is drawn by the healee. The healee draws an appropriate amount of energy from the healers hands thus there is never an overdose and it never goes wrong. this happens however with certain persons only who have some unconscious need to remain in the disease. Reiki is a wonderfl tool to achieve greater health and harmony. As one cannot really express how it feels to feel the light, reiki needs to be experienced to be appreciated.

Anyone with personal experiences of Reiki I'd be delighted to hear from them.

I am currently reviewing some Educational links in Japan for those with dyslexia or mentally impaired.

It may help with the sessions of clinical scientific pscychology that I was offered instead. That's what you get when practising NRLP on one's own and not bringing yourself back safely.
£5000 with Paul McKenna was way to expensive.....

Hypothesis - The Creator's Testament to Modern Man

I have given you DNA programmed by evolution through millions of years. It has form , function and instincts derived from your anthropoid ancestors. You have evolved the gift of language and intelligence to process the ability to reason, to enquire, to have abstract thoughts from which you may experience rich emotions. The blessings bestowed on you are to be used to live in peace with fellow men, animals, plants, and the elements of the earth.

From your ancestors you have inherited the urge to reproduce to preserve your pecious DNA. Many of the secrets of nature are now revealed to you by your probing curiosity and rational analysis. This knowledge can be used for good or evil.

The legend of the serpent who gave Eve the fruit of knowledge is a terrible warning ; beware not to succumb to the temptation of greed, envy, fanatic hatred and lust for powerto dominate others. If you continue to multiply without constraint or consideration of the rest of the world you will swiftly exhaust irreplaceable resources, animal, vegetable and mineral, which will surely lead to destruction of your DNA and desolation of the planet.

You will have many hard decisions to make but I have given you the ability to choose. In the spirit of love and compassion towards your fellow men and all living creatures, animals and plants, use your scientific knowledge to choose and act wisely and to devise ways of sharing without exploitation, to live and let live.

I hope you become Homo sapiens , the alternative is Homo EXTINCTUS.
I wish you well. Roy Calne

The Game of GO


Boogaloo did a cheap version for £8.00.

Said nephew will be trying it out shortly in the safe custody of the other cleverer Aunt. I did provide the board as an Xmas 2004 present. Nephew said he was bored the last time he came home and asked whether I could set up a 'puter for him to play on when he visits.
Now that Apple are moving towards Intel chips may be a good time to start.
Thankfully niece and me share common interests like good food and good medecine. (Though she doesn't know it yet.)
"Lou, you are going to be a Doctor, aren't you ?"
"No, they work nights."

Monkey brains

“These findings suggest that new learning isn’t simply the ‘smarter’ prefrontal cortex figuring things out,” says Dr. Miller. “Surprisingly, primitive brain structures might be the engine driving even our most advanced high-level, intelligent learning abilities.”

Learning New Rules

A craze that's sweeping the puzzle world. My nephew who is autistic - can't read too well - I think the problem is emotional , lack of proper communication or room for communication - is a bit of a whiz at it.

He is numerate but not literate which just about sums the form of puzzle.
It is based on an 18th century Swiss mathematician's "Latin squares". But these days we aren't allowed to mention either Latin or squares.
