"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

project 365: the fifth five

"If I promise to miss you, will you go away?"

day 21. eternal embrace. in weddings, couples vow to stay together 'til death make them part. this picture shows going the extra mile...

...even in death, two human beings from 6,000 years ago managed to stay together! their skeletal remains were found in mantua early this year.

day 22. fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth or arachibutyrophobia. you can call me ignorant but i only learned about this kind of fear today. what's more, i was surprised to find out that it has a name.

day 23. i'm not as immature as i think myself to be.

day 24. low-latent inhibition. my attention was drawn to this personality trait while watching season 1 of prison break. apparently, michael scofield has it.

a person who has low-latent inhbition (LLI) has lowered ability to filter out excess information. this causes a constant stream of incoming stimuli to the brain which may or may not prove to be good for the person who has it. in scofield's case, having the trait does him good because it makes him a genius.

a person with normal latent inhibition would look at a coin and recognize it as such and would only think of the most relevant information about it. a person with LLI would go further by noticing the details of the coin and by processing so much more other information like the minting, the material, the possible modifications, similar images, history, and so on. the barrage of information might drive a person crazy if he is not able to cope. it is hypothesized that people who possess a combo of above average intelligence and LLI have the tendency to effectively process and keep up with the constant stream of information and might as well be creative geniuses.

day 25. star wars origami sites. yes, you read that right. now, i might be able to make my own R2D2 just by folding paper.

project 365: the fifth five covers the period 03.05.07-03.09.07. updates on this project are posted here.
