the physiognomy of the aliens, the appearance of their spacecrafts, the ordeal of the medical examination, and so on — to popular science fiction comics, stories, and films of the past fifty years. The scholarly consensus would seem to be that the abductions simply did not take place; there is no originary event behind the memories. The notion of originary event is crucial here. Clearly, we will not get far by denying the existence of the memories themselves. Our scepticism is rather directed at what, if anything, may lie behind them. We suspect that the abductees’ reports do not stem from actual alien encounters, but that some other complex his - torical, sociological, and psychological processes are at work. Whatever the pro - cess turns out to be (and we are a long way from an adequate explanation of the phenomenon), it is reasonable to assume that the abductees’ memories do not faithfully represent actual historical occurrences

Agnosticism about experience: the threat of alien abductions
#sharf
Felicitas Goodman, in her study of spirit possession, goes a step further, assum - ing a decidedly agnostic stance toward the existence of the spirits reported by her subjects. The experience of [the] presence [of spirits] during possession is accompanied by observable physical changes. We should remember that whether these changes are internally generated or created by external agencies is not discoverable. No one can either prove or disprove that the obvious changes of the brain map in possession or in a patient with a multiple personality disorder, for that matter, are produced by psy - chological processes or by an invading alien being (Goodman, 1988, p. 126). Goodman’s agnosticism is but a small step away from John Mack’s qualified acceptance of the existence of alien abductors

differance? or evasion?

The category experience is, in essence, a mere place-holder that entails a substantive if indeterminate terminus for the relentless deferral of meaning. And this is precisely what makes the term experience so amenable to ideological appropriation.

They are writing AGAINST the rhetoric of experience. It is not private. Rather shared. It is not independent from beliefs. It is not subjective???? Is this a conclusion?
The rhetoric of experience regards religious experiences as being four things: absolutely private, subjective, indubitable (for the experiencer), and immediate, in the sense that the experience is independent of the experiencer’s concepts and beliefs.

What about this writing? Writing for the our pair of action. Implementation. Imitation.
But none of this anxiety of theirs was for the blessed and eternal life beyond; and how do they profit if their writings win a glory that must perish with this world? And what does posterity gain by reading of Hector fighting or Socrates philosophizing, seeing that it is not only folly to imitate them but madness to do less than wage strenuous war against them? For by valuing human life for its present activities only, they committed their hopes to romances, their souls to the tomb. Yes, they trusted for their immortality solely to the memories of men, whereas it is the duty of man to seek enduring life rather than enduring remembrance and to seek it, not by writing or fighting or philosophizing, but by a life of devotion, holiness and piety.

In traumatic shock, soft tissue and bony injury leads to the activation of inflammatory cells and the release of cir- culating factors, such as cytokines and intracellular molecules that modulate the immune response. Recent investigations have revealed that the inflammatory mediators released in response to tissue injury (damage-associated molecular patterns [DAMPs]) are recognized by many of the same cellular receptors (pat- tern recognition receptors [PRRs]) and activate similar signal- ing pathways as do bacterial products elaborated in sepsis (pathogen-associated molecular patterns), such as lipopolysac- charide. 5 These effects of tissue injury are combined with the effects of hemorrhage, creating a more complex and amplified deviation from homeostasis.

The phenomenon of fluid redistribution after major trauma involving blood loss was termed third spacing and described the translocation of intravascular volume into the peritoneum, bowel, burned tissues, or crush injury sites.

Renal failure became a less frequent clinical problem; however, a new disease process, acute fulminant pulmonary failure, appeared as an early cause of death after seemingly successful surgery to control hemorrhage. Initially called DaNang lung or shock lung, the clinical problem became recognized as acute respiratory dis- tress syndrome (ARDS). This led to new methods of prolonged mechanical ventilation. Our current concept of ARDS is a com- ponent in the spectrum of multiple organ system failure

Core principles in the management of the critically ill or injured patient include: (a) definitive control of the airway must be secured, (b) control of active hemorrhage must occur promptly (delay in control of bleeding increases mortality, and recent battlefield data would suggest that in the young and oth- erwise healthy population commonly injured in combat, control of bleeding is the paramount priority), (c) volume resuscitation with blood products (red blood cells, plasma, and platelets) with limited volume of crystalloid must occur while operative con- trol of bleeding is achieved, (d) unrecognized or inadequately corrected hypoperfusion increases morbidity and mortality (i.e., inadequate resuscitation results in avoidable early deaths from shock), and (e) excessive fluid resuscitation may exacerbate bleeding (i.e., uncontrolled resuscitation is harmful). Thus both inadequate and uncontrolled volume resuscitation is harmful

shock consists of inadequate tissue perfusion marked by decreased delivery of required metabolic substrates and inad- equate removal of cellular waste products.This involves fail- ure of oxidative metabolism that can involve defects of oxygen (O 2 ) delivery, transport, and/or utilization. Current challenges include moving beyond fluid resuscitation based on endpoints of tissue oxygenation, and using therapeutic strategies at the cellular and molecular level.

Regardless of etiology, the initial physiologic responses in shock are driven by tissue hypoperfusion and the develop- ing cellular energy deficit.This imbalance between cel- lular supply and demand leads to neuroendocrine and inflammatory responses, the magnitude of which is usually proportional to the degree and duration of shock. The specific responses will differ based on the etiology of shoc

His genealogy of the carceral system centers on the way “the body as the major target of penal repression disappeared” at a certain point in history (DP, 8), only to be subjected to more subtle control by the “normal- izing” techniques of the human sciences in the nineteenth century. And the first volume of his genealogy of sexuality reveals “the en- croachment of a type of power on bodies and their pleasures” that the Victorian proliferation of “perversions” produced (HS, 48).

This stance leaves him remarkably close to Jean-Paul Sartre, whose maxim was that we can always make some- thing out of what we have been made into.

What Foucault calls his “nominalism” is a form of methodologi- cal individualism. It treats such abstractions as “man” and “power” as reducible for purposes of explanation to the individuals that com- prise them. This is the context of his claim, for example, that “power does not exist,” that there are only individual instances of domina- tion, manipulation, edification, control, and the like. His infamous assertion that “man” did not exist before the nineteenth century, even when tempered by appeal to the human sciences that gener- ated the category (which, in turn, served to legitimize them), must be interpreted in the additional sense that “man” is a mere flatus vocis even for the human sciences. Failure to respect Foucault’s un- derlying nominalism has frustrated the critics who have complained about the elusive character of his concept of power

It is the historian’s task to uncover discursive and nondiscursive practices in their plurality and contingency in order to reveal the fields that render intelligible an otherwise heterogeneous collection of events. There is no foundational principle, no originating or final cause. Such words as “influence” and “author” dissolve under nom- inalistic scrutiny.

“History,” as Foucault writes it, is the articulation of the series of practices (archive, historical a priori) that accounts for our current practices, where “account” means assigning the rel- evant transformations (differentials) and displacements or charting the practice along an axis of power, knowledge, or “subjectivation.” Thus Foucault’s program offers the “new historians” too much and too little: too many diverse relations, too many lines of analysis, but not enough unitary necessity. We are left with a plethora of in- telligibilities and a lack of necessity. But he resolutely refuses, as he puts it, to place himself “under the sign of unique necessity” (IP, 46).

It is not by accident, therefore, that he chose to make the con- cept of event the center of his historical analyses. But his peculiar use of “event” serves to distinguish him from old and new histori- ans alike. Practices are events in the Foucaultian sense; so, too, are statements. The famous epistemological breaks of his archaeologies are events, as are the “micro” exercises of power in the “capillaries” of the body politic.

Appeal to “event” enables Foucault to avoid such “magical” concepts as historical “influence” and vague notions like “continuity” by proliferating events without number. An event, he explains, is not a decision, a treaty, a reign, or a battle, but the reversal of a relationship of forces, the usurpation of power, the appropriation of a vocabulary turned against those who had once used it, a feeble domination that poisons itself as it grows lax, the entry of a masked “other.” (LCP, 154)

By a powerful iconic argument, Foucault shows that “representation has lost the power [it enjoyed in the Classical period] to provide a foundation ...for the links that can join its various elements together” (OT, 238–239). That connection will next be sought in “man” and, failing that, in the very differential that Foucault, as postmodern historian, both practices and preaches.

The redescription of his histories as problematizations and their linkage with differential or spatialized thought emphasizes this fact: The freeing of difference requires thought without contradiction, without dialectics, without negation; thought that accepts divergence; affirmative thought whose instrument is disjunction; thought of the multiple – of the nomadic and dispersed multiplicity that is not limited or confined by the constraints of similarity. ...What is the answer to the question? The prob- lem. How is the problem resolved? By displacing the question. ...We must think problematically rather than question and answer dialectically. (LCP, 185–186

share with Ryan. "space"
What is most distinctive of Foucault as a postmodern thinker is what I have called his “spatialization of reason” as studied in his his- tories and exhibited in his writings. His implicit appeal to space, with its transformations and displacements as well as its comparativist and diacritical method, rather than to time as the model for histori- cal explanation undermines the telic nature of traditional historical accounts, even as it restores the dispersive, “Dionysian” character to time, which had been tamed by existentialists and other narrativists

With continued hypoperfusion, which may be unrecognized, cellular death and injury are ongoing and the decompensation phase of shock ensues. Microcirculatory dysfunction, parenchymal tissue damage, and inflammatory cell activation can perpetuate hypo- perfusion. Ischemia/reperfusion injury will often exacerbate the initial insult. These effects at the cellular level, if untreated, will lead to compromise of function at the organ system level, thus leading to the “vicious cycle” of shock

These receptors normally inhibit induction of the ANS. When activated, these baroreceptors diminish their output, thus dis- inhibiting the effect of the ANS. The ANS then increases its output, principally via sympathetic activation at the vasomotor centers of the brain stem, producing centrally mediated constric- tion of peripheral vessels.

Baroreceptors also are an important afferent pathway in initiation of adaptive responses to shock. Volume receptors, sensitive to changes in both chamber pressure and wall stretch, are present within the atria of the heart. They become activated with low volume hemorrhage or mild reductions in right atrial pressure. Receptors in the aortic arch and carotid bodies respond to alterations in pressure or stretch of the arterial wall, respond- ing to larger reductions in intravascular volume or pressure.

(Chinese Traditional version by Catus Lee - external site) Introduction ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here are the long-awaited instructions for the Final Version Perfected (FVP) time management system. I don’t know if it’s the best time management system ever devised. What I do know is that it is the best time management system that I have ever used myself. It’s shown itself to be even more resilient, responsive and quick than the Final Version. FV and now FVP are based on my earlier time management systems, particularly the extensive range of AutoFocus and SuperFocus systems developed over the last five years. These were unique in that they

The FVP algorithm uses the question “What do I want to do more than x?” to preselect a chain of tasks from the list. What exactly is meant by “want” in this context is deliberately left undefined. There may be a whole variety of reasons why you might want to do one thing more than another thing and all of them are valid.The chain always starts with the first unactioned task on the list. Mark this task with a dot to show that it’s now been preselected. Don’t take any action on the task at this stage.This task then becomes the benchmark from which the next task is selected. For example, if the first task on the list is “Write Report”, the question becomes “What do I want to do more than write the report?” You move through the list in order until you come to a task which you want to do more than write the report. This task is now selected by marking it with a dot and it becomes the benchmark for the next task.

Time to Do a Neck Check <span>According to Thomas Weidner, head of athletic training at Ball State University, you should perform what’s called a neck check. That is, when determining whether or not to exercise, if your symptoms are above the neck - sneezing, sore throat, and runny nose - then it’s probably okay to work out.

Specifically, exercise is a scientifically proven immunity booster. Exercising regularly may help you

It's Not an Option
#productivity

markforster.squarespace.com Read Later It’s Not an Option - Blog - Get Everything Done 4 min read original Thursday, September 28, 2006 at 14:13 Do you have some things in your life which you have no option about doing? Most of us have quite a few. We don’t have much option about getting up to go to work, or at least getting up sometime. We don’t have much option about eating, assuming that we want to stay alive. We don’t have much option about earning some money somehow. It might be an interesting exercise to work out just how many things you have in your life which you really do have no option about. These are the things which you simply have to do, because the consequences of not doing them are too horrendous to face. Many of these are things we have to do every day. They are forced on us by the very necessity of staying alive. Others are forced on us by the circumstances of our lives or the people we live and work with. Some are things we have chosen voluntarily.



#productivity

We have to do the things we have no option about so often that they have become part of the landscape. Whether we feel like doing them or not, because we have no option we get on with them. We get on with them rain or sun, regardless of our feelings, regardless of how tired we are. They have to be done – we have no option.

This is very different to how we approach the things we do have an option about. We don’t have to do something like taking exercise, for example, so if we don’t happen to feel like doing it we take the day off exercise. There are a multitude of excuses we can come up with. And then we feel guilty or frustrated because we couldn’t keep up our exercising. If it’s not exercising then it will be something else that we meant to do, wanted to do, but because we had the option of not doing it, we didn’t keep it up.

Next Hour System
#productivity

markforster.squarespace.com Read Later The Next Hour of Your Life - Blog - Get Everything Done 2 min read original All about time management and personal organisation Saturday Jul022016 The Next Hour of Your Life Saturday, July 2, 2016 at 7:00 When we think about managing our time we tend to think in terms of what we are going to do in a day or a week or a month. But in fact one of the most useful units of time for time management purposes is the hour. If you focus on what you are going to achieve during the next hour you will have a much closer focus. Hence one of the simplest of all task management systems is to write down what you intend to do over the next hour, and then to do it. There’s no need to time this exactly to the minute. We’re talking about a period of time in the region of an hour. Over the last few days I’ve been experimenting with some ways of doing this and it’s been working really well for me.

#productivity

Over the last few days I’ve been experimenting with some ways of doing this and it’s been working really well for me. The rules I’ve standardised on have been:

  1. Start the day by writing a list of what you intend to do over the next hour
  2. Do the tasks in order
  3. Top up the list at intervals as you go along so it always contains about one hour’s work (there’s no need to be too exact about this).
  4. There’s no specific provision for re-entering unfinished or recurring tasks. You can just add them as and when you want to, remembering to keep within the limit of an hour’s work.
  5. Non-discretionary work such as appointments and meetings do not count towards the hour, e.g. if you’re going to a two-hour meeting you can put tasks on your list for when it finishes.
  6. Finish the day by completing every task remaining.
  7. Basically aim to do the tasks in the order you’ve written them down, but if you have a good reason to adjust the order or add or remove tasks out of sequence feel free to do so.
