When I put together my visualized Thoughts piece: Reality, (that you may or may not have seen yet depending on when you're reading this,) I used psychedelic visuals to start the video, yet at no point did I talk about the mind in that altered state, only that hallucinations are to be taken with care...… Continue reading States of Consciousness
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI_DSEB62pE What starts as something almost too simple to even think about, reality is so secretly perplexing that doing a deep dive into what we know will leave one floored.

The Legend of Zelda is a video game franchise where you play a silent-type heroic character clad in green, that fights the flood- wait! Wait waitwait, wrong franchise. Sorry. In the Legend of Zelda, you play as a character appointed by your commanding nation to quell the forces against your kind, harnessing little more than… Continue reading The Legend of Zelda
When you think of tolerance, do you think of physical tolerance, or philosophical tolerance?

Shamans and heroes! Serial killers and singers! Fame. The subject of fame is cool as hell because it's one of those other things that's completely unique to humans.

At my elementary school, when you rose to grade five, you were inducted to the fictional island of Foo.

Love is compassion and attraction. It's kindness and well wishes. It's hidden magic, being in it, and something worth fighting for. If life is a game, love is the prize!

There will be people that can argue to a good point that human consciousness is a part of evolution, but my intuition says it just ain't! Hence my title: The Follies of Consciousness.

Is determinism the truth of reality? For starters, what is the idea of determinism and what are its counters? Determinism is the philosophical belief that all events are determined completely by previously existing causes. Causal determinism in physics is known as cause-and-effect. It is the concept that events within a given paradigm are bound by… Continue reading Determinism
Fear is tucking your daughter in for the night only to realize once you've closed the door that you don't have a daughter.

This is visual poetry, not brought to you by myself but by NASA. I just thought I'd share it on my website. These images have been rendered in all their beauty for free to the general public; the ones below are my favourites of the bunch. You can find all of the posters by searching… Continue reading Album Covers of our Cosmos
What constitutes living a good life? While individual happiness is particular to each person, general well being is quantifiable. A good life includes a healthy diet, or healthy enough for you to still enjoy what you're eating, a moderate fitness regiment, an open dialogue with your inner circle of loved ones, and having a life… Continue reading The Good Life
How does someone find themselves at the receiving end of a destructive habit? No one plans to live a life of degradation. It's something that happens slowly, like a frog in boiling water. One doesn't notice that certain actions have a predictive outcome of addiction until they reach that point down the line. It can… Continue reading Substance Abuse
Identities! Also known as personalities made from a collection of memories. I've written about the concept of identities in bits and pieces throughout my blog, like in Duality and Perspective, but I think it deserves it's own work down. Would the ninth grade version of yourself even recognize you? Are you still you if you… Continue reading Identities
One one-billionth of the Sun's total energy output actually reaches Earth. Of all the energy that does reach Earth, 34 percent is reflected back to space by clouds. The Earth itself reflects another 66 percent back to space. Wouldn't it be great if we could harness even one percent of the Sun's energy? That thought… Continue reading Dyson Spheres
Jumping stretches my aching body! Here now I have some. I can't dance but I'd love to try. The trees call me to climb them, who am I to deny? Eeeaaa do I love a good run from sun rise to sun done. Crackle like a fire when it's time and sing like a choir… Continue reading EEEAAA!
Sexuality is both praised and abhorred in society. It's either handled with exuberance or repression, the latter form there arguably running both the show and amok in the western world. The current dominant religions are clearly against it, yet have their own twisted viewpoint on what it even is. Everyone remembers when puberty really changed… Continue reading Sexuality
"Adults with ADHD who are undiagnosed and untreated in childhood are at greater risk of low self-esteem, substance abuse, anxiety and depression," Labour’s shadow minister for mental health, Barbara Keeleyshe says.

The walls of my vision split like an atom, bursting a billion stars like plastered plastic barbies reduced to pellets. Gaseous particles bomb the dark for their friends to see, in the cold of an endless night for a tiny fleeting light. My hearing shatters at the point of heart break, falling deaf on the… Continue reading Periphery
In Joe Van's Secret Podcast #26, I talk to an old friend about close calls, the flat Earth, addictions, the uncanny valley, video games, roasts, and family.
Allow me to take you on a retrospective journey... thinking back to who I was at the turn of my second decade. God, I'm still so stupid. No, I shouldn't use that word. I'm learning and will learn for the rest of my life, there's nothing wrong with that. I was just so lazy and… Continue reading Back
Leaves rustle with the wind, and we are blown. Nature breathes in, we are exhaled. Oceans churn, and we are born. Life out is life in. One side of a coin does not exist without the other.
Clambering for some kind of resolve negates the point. Will you forgive me? Cracking down often does the opposite. It's not a fad! Knowing for certain shuts off your brain. Whatever helps you sleep at night.
Feeling a fleeting, fringe, fraction of fire ignite your soul is reason enough to chase a ghost for the rest of your life. Freeing frantic midnight fights from your soul is reason enough... enough to let a ghost go.
Seeing the sky with new eyes means shedding the old, the pain is searing but what comes post revealing, are vistas oh bold.
Ep.4 of Joe Van reads Wiki. Here I read about solipsism, or is it really just you?
Culture: Reflected and Shaped by Movies Joseph Van Landschoot The Matrix changed how mainstream audiences thought about reality. Through Star Wars, a fan community formed where people made life-long friendships and even families. Us now holds the record for highest grossing original horror film on opening weekend, (Box Office Mojo,) ushering in new… Continue reading How Hollywood Moves Ideas
How the Average Moviegoer Votes with Their Wallet Over 48% of the U.S./Canadian yearly box office income is from moviegoers that frequent the theatres one or more times in a month, (source: M.P.A.A. theatre market statistics 2016,) so it’s safe to say that the rest of the money made comes from blockbusters. The top five… Continue reading Why Care About The Movies You See?
Here's my voice to listen to on a lonely night.
Yeah I'm here and we're here and we're seemin' okay but we don't know what we're doin. No we don't know what we're doin. No we don't no we don't no we don't no we don't. And we find ourselves in our town in our time and we're workin with what we've got. And we… Continue reading Lyrics
Folding and pelting, greasing and gassing, holding and passing. Letting up a tad to see it spin out, grabbing on tight and trying not to shout. Bingeing on the hard stuff, dying just to last. Crying with cuffed hands now, hell has come and passed.
Tick-tock goes the clock for all but the dead. It goes up and down, fast and slow but never stops. Craters fill, mountains fall and I feel so small. Could causality be the only thing to cause anxiety? If ever the clock went back, only for a day or two, how neat would it be… Continue reading Clock
The twelve things of life: You were born of a consequence of programming, not of divine intention. Just because nature has instilled instincts in you, does not mean those instincts are rightful. Moderation in all affairs is not only the key to longevity, but healthy prosperity. Letting go and moving forward is the only way… Continue reading Twelve Certainties and Suggestions
Strange it always comes in the night, where all my mind that eyes can't hide reveal the side thought sterilized; a doctor and a mister. Two sides to a coin, once believed one eloign, but nevermore, lest delusion be reborn. They live inside me, fazed to a non-existent centre, inside which I might find peace… Continue reading Strange

In this episode my guest and I talk about relationships, ghosts, and drugs. A side note that is worth mentioning, I give a story that I feel I presented poorly, and if editing was not against my rules I would definitely cut that out.
This episode features a scholar who works in HVAC, and energy systems in general.
The common phrase, 'snitches get stitches and end up in ditches,' is currently used in schoolyards, though it originally came from urban communities regarding illegal activities. They would say it to someone they considered potential police informants, as a form of intimidation for their own self-serving reasons. Since then it has been used in jails,… Continue reading Snitches Get Stitches

Screeching peeling arrest! Putang ina the sounds roar. Thumping and rustling, and scratching and rumbling, and clatter and pounding, and searing and hissing, and whining and BOOM! Silencio.
Like mirrors in every way, they hold up ourselves. Crashing or calm, to low or high. We are life, so they. Be.
Certainty is an issue with some people. They say that the more you know, the less certain you become about things. Once your perspective broadens from information; academically or otherwise, on whatever subject, the more open-minded you might become. Certainty is something innate. You are either into something, or you're not. And there are many… Continue reading Being In It
This will be a hot button topic unlike any of the other topics I've written about so far, I feel. What people find important or not important vary radically depending on the individual. Some people find many-a-thing important and therefore sensitive or sacred, while others care so little they couldn't be bothered to know it… Continue reading Importance
