* Every breath we breathe in 10 to the power of 22 atoms. * In less than one year you replace 98% of the atoms in your body. * You create a new liver every 6 weeks. * You create a new stomach lining every 5 days. * You create a new skin once per month. * You create a new skeleton every 3 months. * The brain cells you are using to read this article did not exist one year ago. * The raw material of DNA comes and goes every 6 weeks. * Taste buds change every 6 weeks. * The nervous system allows only 1 billionth of the information available to one person at any given time.
But you do not forget the taste of chocolate. You do not forget how to digest. You do not forget how to see. Your memories are not loss when your brain cells pass away.
In less than two years you replace your whole body down to the last atom, but who you are, what you remember, remains. Molecules are just the carriers of who you are; they are the temporary storage place of memories. You are constantly outliving the life if your cells. You are constantly surviving the death of your body.
The essence of who you are transcends the molecules of your physical being. There is a timeless aspect of you that survives the material form. The material form gives you a temporary shape and personality. The pattern of atoms in cells has a shelf life -the pattern wears out after repeated use.
Unlike the material, the timeless part of your self does not have a shelf life. What gives life to the material form of atom patterns is endless, eternal, ageless. This is who we are at our core - pure energy, moving in to, through, and out of form.
Slapping some glasses on some topless girls face, does not make her a fucking nerd.
Giving her a book and telling her to pout, does not make a her a fucking nerd.
I really hate this whole ‘Craze’ over nerd’s being a trendy, sexy thing nowadays. I mean wtf?! Nerd’s aren’t meant to be attractive. They sit and study, they inspect, observe, play with everything. The whole concept of big titted girls sitting in an R2D2 shirt, does not even come close to nerddome. It’s just an attention whore looking to get the WoW population to look at her.
One of my best friends works in a studio in London; he’s done vogue and stuff.
He does assisting but he said it’s a great way to get into the industry.
He does his own freelance stuff too, and he’s really good. Gets to borrow lighting and stuff. I helped him out with that shoot he did for…
AHHHHHHHHH! PLEASE DO. I’d owe you everything. Can he get me a job with him or something?! :P Haha. I’m taking a gap year before Uni, so if I could just get some shitty job there, I’d love it, just to get an insight of what it’s like. Fuck, I’d do it for free. No lie!
That’s what he did, worked for at first to get started and now he gets paid selfemployed. I’ll get him to Facebook you, his name is Matty Latham
