Podcast Notes: 1 Second a Day App, the Museum of 4AM, and the 90 Minute Container

Intro: I listen to Podcasts frequently in order to feed my curiosity, spark ideas, and get out of my head for a bit by focusing on something else. Typically, I take notes throughout Podcasts on ideas, projects, people, and anecdotes I want to investigate further, or that really resonated with me. These are my collection of notes.

PODCAST: TED Radio Hour: Shifting Time

  • Why I Loved this one: I have an obsession, fascination, curiosity with “TIME”. Time in the present moment. Time on earth. Why we are here? What does it mean to be alive during the time we are alive in? Why does time sometimes move fast, and other times it moves so slow? How do we change over time? How do we manager our time? TIME is HUGE!
  • 1 Second a Day App [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][view here]: “For over 3 years, I’ve been recording 1 second every day, so I’ll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life, that I’ve passionately developed an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do this too.” – Cesar Kurlyama. 1 Second Every Day helps stitch the moments of your life into a single video, by capturing a second of footage everyday.
  • The 4AM Mystery [view here]: Rives has a contagious obsession with 4 a.m. At TED2007, the poet shared what was then a minor fixation with a time that kept popping up everywhere. He then started the Museum of 4AM – an ongoing curation of what’shappening around the world, at 4AM. The aim of the 4amproject is to gather a collection of photos from around the world at the magical time of 4am.
  • Question: Did time exist before the Big Bang? Answer: We DO NOT KNOW.
  • Book: From Eternity to Here [view here]: The quest for the ultimate theory of time. Author Sean Carroll argues that the arrow of time, pointing resolutely from the past to the future, owes its existence to conditions beforethe Big Bang itself—a period modern cosmology of which Einstein never dreamed.

PODCAST: The Mindful Creative: Dominate Your Day with Jeff Sanders

  • General Topic: Discussion on methods, processes and tips, as well as mindset shifts, to empower you to dominate your day from start to finish.
  • 90 Minute Blog Posts: Jeff gives himself a strict 90 minute container to start and finish a blog post. This is extremely helpful in avoiding being a perfectionist and creates a system to actually complete a post, rather than always having it in draft mode.

About Lauren Rains

Life gets pretty f*cking nuts sometimes, doesn't it? Every day I wake up more to myself and more to this world. This website is an expression of that.

Space Travelers is multi-layered exploration of our existence here on this rock we call Earth. We're going to talk about the matrix, UFOs, and astral travel, and explore our awakening into the divine masculine and feminine. We'll discover our bodies both the physical and subtle body. We'll contemplate the sacredness of mother earth and the concept of who/what the hell made this place in the first place?

I also aim to keep this website rooted and grounded, referring to topics that are effecting us in the here and now, such as fighting against the oppression of women worldwide, pealing away layers of social conditioning greedy capitalists are using to turn us into consumers, and navigating this insane technological revolution before the AI take over. I can geek out on consciousness up in space all day, but life happens here on the ground and this is the time we were born into.

This website is about integrating into our full human experience, aligning with ourselves and with each other, shedding skins and transcending into the unfolding layers of ourselves.

My wish for you, and for myself, is to unfold and evolve into our highest selves. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We need not sell our souls to the status quo.

I'm on the journey too. I write this blog to speak to others who are waking up, or who desire to wake up. Because we can't do this alone.

  • Thanks for the mention Lauren, appreciate you listening and glad you were able to glean something helpful. Cheers!

    • Brett – absolutely. Your podcast is quickly becoming one of my Go-To’s. Basically, for me, combining entrepreneurship/creating with mindfulness/self-awareness is like, combining peanut butter and jelly or like, graham crackers – chocolate – marsh mellows haha. It is delicious. ;o)
