I’m a young creative writer and artist from Germany who has a fable for anything strange or odd.^^
Aren't we all a little Bukowski?
The life of a modern story writer is a complex and often tumultuous one, marked by both triumph and defeat. Like the great Charles Bukowski, these writers pour their hearts and souls into their craft, weaving tales of love, loss, and the human condition with a raw, unapologetic style. But while the end result may be beautiful, the journey to get there is often filled with rejection, self-doubt, and long, lonely nights spent pounding away at the keyboard.

The metaverse explained to people who still don't understand it
You, too, have certainly heard the term somewhere. Whether through Mark Zuckerberg's rather creepy virtual avatar in the Facebook rebrand, live concerts in the Fortnite universe, or digital art exhibitions - currently there is hardly any escape from the internet's current favorite term: metaverse.
Facebook 2.0: Meta wants to turn our physical movements into money
When Facebook bought Oculus and its much-hyped Rift VR goggles for $2 billion in 2014, it wasn't entirely clear what the social media giant was planning with this move into virtual reality. But anyone familiar with Facebook's myriad scandals and insatiable hunger for personal data had some premonition.
The search for distant moons
In 1655, Christiaan Huygens pointed a self-constructed telescope at Saturn. The Dutch astronomer wanted to verify his assumption that the planet was surrounded by a single fixed ring whose orientation changed over the years. In the process, Huygens discovered the giant moon, Titan. Henceforth, Saturn was the third planet, along with Earth and Jupiter, of which a satellite was known. Today we know: Moons are even more common in our solar system than planets.
Princeton, the late 1940s. The U.S. military is interested in a solitary but obviously highly gifted mathematics student. On a secret mission, he is to decipher espionage messages that Soviet agents have hidden daily his opponents are already hot on his heels: as unscrupulous doctors, they try to put him out cold in a mental hospital ...
Come into the flow
My thoughts are clear and focused. I am completely in the here and now, absorbed in what I am doing. I feel good. The world outside is far away. I hardly notice myself and my worries. As early as 1975, psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi used statements like these from athletes, artists, and scientists to describe those special moments when people become completely absorbed in what they are doing and forget everything around them. The American-Hungarian researcher, who worked for many years at the University of Chicago, gave this fulfilling state the name flow.
Where do artists get their vivid imagination?
Five-year-olds invent imaginary friends; teenagers can imagine being in love; and adults plan career advancement, buying a house, or a trip around the world. We all have some imagination and use it in everyday life. But when we want to imagine something far removed from our temporal or spatial reality - perhaps the world in the year 2500 or what it would be like to live on the moon or Mars - we often find it difficult to make the scenes appear in our inner eye.
How yoga changes the brain
Yoga is more than a trend; yoga is a movement. The practice, imported from India, has become a popular sport in the West. In Germany, more than 15 million people now do the sun salutation, stretch their legs into the downward-looking dog or sit meditatively side by side in the lotus position to relax, manage stress, strengthen their backs and stay fit. Or are at least interested in embarking on the gentle path to well-being. The multitude of practicing expects an improvement of the physical condition as well as the psyche. And this is not a perceived truth.
Which way to the lucid dream?
Just a moment ago, you flew around the world with mere arm strength, fought a saber-toothed tiger in the jungle, or accidentally did your weekly shopping in the supermarket without pants. Then the alarm clock rings, and you realize - sometimes disappointed, sometimes relieved - that it was all just a bizarre dream. It's different from lucid dreams, also known as lucid dreams. Here, sleepers are aware from the start that they are just traveling through an artificial world. More than one in two have experienced such a lucid dream at some point in their lives. Depending on the survey, about a quarter report regular lucid dreams, i.e. more frequently than once a month.
