HEARING VOICES

One of the most common things that I've found among friends and family is the difficulty they have comprehending what it's like to hear voices. The short answer, like hearing you talking to me only I can't see you :D We laugh, cry, argue, insult each other ... all inside :D But every now and then the two worlds blur and I find myself speaking out loud what was meant for the discussion inside. Or someone catches me smiling or snickering at a joke I just told or was told inside. It must induce paranoia in the friends, and family when I do this, so I try to keep it inside. But its not all fun and games. I've rather we've worked really hard at getting to where we are today. Friends still think its 7 years ago and everything is traumatising. But it might be the smiling and giggling under my breath they might feel is disturbing ... oops. Little do they realise how difficult it is to keep all inside! Even trying to give them all a measured dose of it lasts seconds not minutes or hours. Voices are a little like people who befriended you and you've been trying to escape ever since ... they are there 24 hrs a day. Just think of a scenario where you have your phone on conference call all day, and you have your headset on talking or rather mostly hearing them talk at you all day. Yes, tiring!

According to some researchers, people who are musical, or who may notice the changes to the fine print of life,  show a higher occurrence of hearing voices. So ones like Beethoven who was deaf is said to have heard voices; Actors with meticulously fine work such as Sir Anthony Hopkins; the lead singer in the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, all have this unique ability to notice things, and it's maybe this fine tuned listening ability that is part of the process of hearing voices. People like us are more likely to notice the slightest change in a person's tone of voice, the nuance between hearing "I'm feeling fine" and "I'm not feeling fine, but I'm trying to sound like I am fine". 

We might also be very socially awkward or viewed as loners. We actually love company but the sensory overload of hearing voices and trying to converse with "real" people at the same time can be difficult to navigate. Voices will tell you how they feel about everything you do, and everyone you know. They will sound like friends, family, strangers, alien, robots or combinations of all these at times. Now that we're moving into a world where commercial technology is entering the realm of "thought controlled" toys, games, and devices that have Artificial Intelligence technology built in, it's not a stretch of imagine now to see the time when we are just communicating via "thought transfer" once considered "magic" but now within the "normal" range of the human experience. 

Google Glass add-ons that let you take photos just by staring at the object lol, depending on the appropriateness :D Eye and head tracking, facial recognition, human-size robots that can fight like a ninja, but not quite run like one ... yet; Life-like fem-bots for the "you-know-what" industry but having millitary and general commercial and residential industry applications too ala "Bicentenial Man". Heck, Sophia the AI robot is now an official citizen of Syria lol! And the officials are taking advice from her! ...

I tell friend, voices are the least of everyone's troubles!

Madness, chaos, wild confusion and disorder. This is the way the universe began - we're told. As the "dust" settles things become  more orderly more and more still. Yet, stillness is not always proof of becoming more orderly, just look at my room! It's very still! But definitely not orderly.

My room reflects my state of mind, my house reflects my body, my property reflects my immediate social environment, further a field reflects my place in society. On and on until we pan out to view the whole world, the planet, as my body, filled with sextiillions of elements from the atomic level, all the way up to the planetary scale. My room is a mess, my house is much the same, my property is isolated but has a good view, my local community seem to be active. Further a field society is sinking into mud on one side and overcoming huge mountains on the other. Panning out into space, the planet looks dry and brown as industrialisation consumes the globe like a nasty rash.

Weather systems are becoming more and more difficult to predict, even reversing in some cases. It is the perfect time to start a doomsday religion! Kidding, just so you know :)

      As more and more people discuss mental health issues in public forums, it seems to be lifting some of the stigma surrounding the topic. New research reveals that the number of students seeking help for mental health problems has risen considerably between 2009 and 2015.
      Anxiety, depression, and panic attacks are on the rise among U.S. college students, suggests a new study.
      Sara Oswalt, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, is the lead author of the new study, which was published in the Journal of American College Health.
      According to estimates that the scientists cite, around 26 percent of people aged 18 and above in the United States live with a mental health condition in any given year.

      Summary:
      Therapy dog sessions for stressed-out students are an increasingly popular offering at North American universities. Now, new research confirms that some doggy one-on-one time really can do the trick of boosting student wellness.
      Therapy dog sessions for stressed-out students are an increasingly popular offering at North American universities. Now, new research from the University of British Columbia confirms that some doggy one-on-one time really can do the trick of boosting student wellness.
      "Therapy dog sessions are becoming more popular on university campuses, but there has been surprisingly little research on how much attending a single drop-in therapy dog session actually helps students," said Emma Ward-Griffin, the study's lead author and research assistant in the UBC department of psychology. "Our findings suggest that therapy dog sessions have a measurable, positive effect on the wellbeing of university students, particularly on stress reduction and feelings of negativity."
      In research published today in Stress and Health, researchers surveyed 246 students before and after they spent time in a drop-in therapy dog session. Students were free to pet, cuddle and chat with seven to 12 canine companions during the sessions. They also filled out questionnaires immediately before and after the session, and again about 10 hours later.
      The researchers found that participants reported significant reductions in stress as well as increased happiness and energy immediately following the session, compared to a control group of students who did not spend time at a therapy dog session. While feelings of happiness and life satisfaction did not appear to last, some effects did.

      Chester Bennington's widow says that she was "completely surprised" by her husband's passing, explaining that she believed Chris Cornell's death only two months earlier would serve as a deterrent against suicide to the LINKIN PARK singer.
      Chester was found dead on July 20, 2017 — on what would have been the 53rd birthday of his late friend and fellow rocker, SOUNDGARDEN frontman Chris Cornell.
      After Cornell died in May 2017 as a result of suicide by hanging himself inside his Detroit hotel room, Chester wrote a letter thanking him for inspiring him and hoping he would find peace in "the next life."
      On Wednesday (January 31), Talinda Bennington touched upon her tragic loss during an appearance at the Canadian Event Safety Summit, where she spoke with Anna Shinoda(wife of Mike Shinoda, who is also in LINKIN PARK) and Jim Digby (LINKIN PARK's production manager). The event focused on mental illness in the music industry, but much of the panel's discussion centered on life after Chester's death.
      Talinda, who married Chester in 2005 and had three kids with the late singer, said (see video below): "[Chester and I] were both very emotionally unhealthy in our own different ways, and over our time together — we were together for 12 and a half years — we both grew. He struggled with addiction and depression, two things that I've never struggled with. Although I do have my own demons, I did have my hardships growing up, we just handled them in very different ways. So I came from a point of complete — for lack of a better term — ignorance to his situation. But over time, I came to learn that taking care of your mental health is as important as your physical health."

      Everyone knows that a dog is a man’s best friend, but a recently released Swedish study is giving that hackneyed saying a whole new meaning for men — and women — everywhere.
      The study, published in Scientific Reports on Friday, found that dog ownership may really help you live longer.
      The study tracked, over a period of 12 years, more than 3.4 million Swedish adults without a history of heart disease. Overall, the study concluded, dog ownership was associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease and "all-cause mortality" in the general population.
      The effects of dog ownership were especially pronounced in single-person households, where the presence of a pet lowered the risk of death by 33 percent and chances of a heart attack by 11 percent.
      The study linked ownership of breeds originally bred for hunting, including terriers and retrievers, with the lowest risk of CVD.
