The empty subways remind me of our first nights here. Turned weeks, months, memories lost whiskey from the bottle in our pocket in public in between cars hands breaths responsibility to the dreams that brought us here because we could and so we should on principle of freedom abused which is revelry, appreciation, love.

Collectively, the observations establish that about 23 percent of the universe is dark matter and about 72 percent is dark energy. Everything else is squeezed into the remaining few percent.
Several experiments are now under way to identify dark matter. Scientists are searching for what they suspect is an exotic species of particle. Some studies are looking for clues by analyzing particles bombarding Earth from space; others, like the Large Hadron Collider, will analyze collisions between extremely fast-moving protons that have the potential to create dark matter in the lab. We are guardedly optimistic that we’ll be able to identify dark matter soon.

By contrast, the question of dark energy is wide open. What is its origin? What determined its quantity? Does the amount stay constant or vary? These are critical questions. Calculations show that if the amount of dark energy had been slightly larger, the universe would have blown apart so quickly that life as we know it could not exist.

Idios kosmos comes from Greek and means “private world”. It exists with, and is opposite to, koinos kosmos (shared world). Idios kosmos is the view of the world that is developed from personal experience and knowledge and is therefore unique; however, it can be difficult to tell the difference between it and koinos kosmos.

How To Handle A Crush

Calm your fucking jorts. This is normal. You are a warm-blooded land mammal, and you are alive and ripping apart polysaccharides and grocery shopping in your favorite underwear secretly hoping to see your crush next to the omega-3 eggs, perhaps bending down to get said eggs so you can glimpse the top of their favorite underwear and also know they are nutritionally intelligent and this is so totally normal.

Remind yourself what a crush actually is: an intense desire to literally crush someone until they become a kind of schmear that can be rubbed on every surface of your home and body and also eaten with bagels or toast or those little crackers that look like toast.

Call them, maybe.

Chill your crush to their Curie point until they become a solid. Put them in a KitchenAid Speed Diamond blender. Grind them to a fine powder. Make a line on top of your toilet tank and inhale through a crisp $20 bill.

Ignore them. Wonder why they don’t notice you ignoring them.

Get very small and walk into their mouth. Make a home in the space between their left bicuspid and first molar. Live on the scraps of food that fall between their teeth, and read them little folktales and haikus. Grow old, and on the last day of your life read Aesop’s “The Old Man and Death” aloud, in a weary but still generous voice. When you die, let them swallow you until you’ve been incorporated into their body and turned into glucose. They won’t really notice any of this, but they will feel a slight vibration between two of their teeth for several years.

Google them. Grow a Google tree in your heart with everything you learn about their elementary school mascot and what they ate in Barcelona that one time in 2006.

Make a miniature replica of your crush using pipe cleaners, Popsicle sticks, twine, and googly eyes.

Take a nap.

Write some faux self-help that is clearly about a specific crush, but is also a kind of general crush on the world (it’s very normal to turn your feelings into unhelpful self-help [it’s also, like, advisable to hide behind second person for a while, until you clear your head {or until your crush becomes more than a crush, which is such a tight ember of possibility you’d never say it aloud}]) and put it on the Internet.

Drink some water.

Just explode. Explode in a pile of rainbows and jelly beans and rainbow-colored rain and let all your crushes clean you up.

Want your crush so hard you develop a clinically debilitating cluster headache. Let the headache have sex with itself until it becomes an army of headaches, and those headaches launch a paramilitary offensive on your self-esteem, which is already decimated, like Vietnam.

Write them a fifty-five-billion-word email, which is so big it breaks Gmail and also their heart.

Acquire an abandoned storefront. Acquire the municipal permits to coat the walls in lapis lazuli and the floors in butterfly wings. Hire the most beautiful aliens from the nearest life-sustaining supercluster and train them for weeks in how to speak English and deal with gravity and be customer service-minded. Give them each a tiny Post-It that says “I love you.” Throw a party at the abandoned storefront and invite your crush and get the aliens to give each Post-It to your crush one by one, but in a surprise way where they’re hidden in hors d’oeuvres or slipped in pants pockets.

Donate your heart to science. Then you won’t feel so much anymore.

Dream: Unearthly storm wind, and swarms of birds splayed by her. I amid and below.

"Winds in a dream represent the sphere of one’s control and his power to change things, or to maneuver people’s interests."

"A disoriented bird’s crowd embodies a confusion of physical or material considerations as a contrast to spiritual desire."

Wind:
Association: - Suggestion, - sensory Überreizung. Question: - Where in my life am I looking for suggestion? Where do I feel overtaxed?
In general:
As a vision, wind symbolises the intellect. The interpretation of the dream depends above all on the strength of the wind. A gentle breeze suggests ease and pleasure. A storm could stand for a principle the dreamer believes in passionately, while a north wind stands for the menace of his security. Wind embodies spiritual-mental forces which influence - partly unconsciously - the life. If he comes from the back, the quick progress promises, from the front he indicates obstacles.

Psychologically:
The wind was valid with many people as a breath of the earth. In him was seen the work of higher forces. The wind often changes rather fast its direction and strength. As a dream symbol he stands for unstableness and fleetingness.
Also in the dream the wind is a natural phenomenon. Calm is a sign of strong energy. But also if the wind rises, this points to strong spiritual energy. If a storm raves, however, in the dream off, this one tip to power can be. The dream wind brings mostly fresh wind in our personal matters and relations. He drives our life ship, is the spiritual engine which moves us to the action which releases, energy, so that we can soon achieve an aim, - this is even lighter if it concerns tail wind. Quietly murmuring wind lets us reach a quieter waterway. At the psychological level the wind announces a new, deeper consciousness. In the Bible the holy mind announces himself as a roaring, violent storm. Strong wind can also stand for a revelation.

Birds:
Association: - Freedom, - escape, - freeing from the weight of the physical level. Question: - Which part of me wants to fly?
In general:
Birds are ordinarily a symbol for imagination, thought and ideas which need her freedom to emerge. Since pagan times people have been fascinated by birds and aviation. Earlier, it was believed that birds were the bearers of the soul and would own accordingly magic and mystic forces. If he sits in the cage, points to obstacles with the ‘high-altitude flights’, the empty cage announces disappointments.

Psychologically:
The bird lives in the air, which was up to the 20th century, an inaccessible area of the mind. In the dream it is a symbol for contents of the unconscious. The bird is an aerial being said to indicate spiritual-emotionally the thought which moves our everyday life. The bird can embody the soul.
Fluttering of birds helplessly in a space or a cage may represent the soul state from which one searches a way out. If they fly freely and unhindered by our dreamscape, this implies the freedom of our thoughts, on our unloaded soul.
Birds in the dream express the need of the person to project his qualities on objects and living beings outside of himself. They also have an erotic meaning, derived from Greek mythology in which the bird belonged to the god Cupid.

A freely flying bird shows longings and wishes and may be the mind climbing up to the divine.
An especially splendid plumage points out to the facade of the dreaming and on how he sees himself.
A bird with golden wings has the same meaning like fire and, hence, refers to spiritual longing.
A bird high flying in the winds indicates at spiritual consciousness or the part in the dreaming who strives for knowledge.
