  • 8 Limbs of Yoga

    A girl from the Ancient Egypt in Chakrasana

    I started studying Yoga when I was 17 with Patanjali Yoga Sutras in various translations, and then read tons of book on various traditions in Yoga (Hatha, Pranayama, Kundalini, etc). First, I would like to present to you my personal compact version / interpretation of the 8 limbs of Yoga योग.

    Yoga Sutras are based on atheistic philosophy Samkhya, an orthodox (Astika) and atheistic hindu system of dualism.

  • Is High Fruit Raw Vegan Diet the Key to Vitality and Health?

    I was asked this question by a very nice person. The first version of the question was (with a few additional details):

    ...do you think high fruit raw vegan diet is optimal for health?...I honestly sense i am not going the right way, as I am not "glowing" on this lifestyle. Would love your perspective.

    The final version of the question was:

    ...is this diet key to vitality and health, aside of course relationships, state of mind and etc.

    In this semi-spontaneous response I did not touch on a few important aspects of the issue because the subject was a bit too broad and complex to give an comprehensive and definitive short answer. I also did not know almost anything about this person experience with this diet. The video is ~ 30 minutes long:

  • To Claire Michelle: Abundance, Trusting Universe, Law of Attraction, Travel, Love, Trust

    Even love is not an "unlimited resource," and fresh ripe fruit are certainly not.

  • Seeds in Fruitarian Diet?

    Some fruitarians maintain that fruitarian diet should include only fruit flesh, which usually surrounds seeds of the common fruits. They insist on nver including seeds, because eating them would mean the same as destroying plants (or their "babies").

    I must disagree

    1. First, seeds are not developed organisms. The main premise of fruitarianism is that complex organisms as plants deserve our ethical consideration, and most seeds are just dormant plant matter: it would be highly impractical and even immoral to treat them as individuals. 
    2. Second, they are produced by plants in excess, not all require to go through our digestive system, and only few can develop into organisms due to shortage of resources on this planet.
    3. Third, fruitarianism is about fruits is botanical sense, not culinary or common.
  • 55 Questions from Fruitarian

    For the Fruitarian Interviews project, I have composed 55 questions in 5 sections: Introduction (10), Ethics (30), Lifestyle (5), Diet (5), Conclusions (5). Most of them are ethical questions, not the ethical dilemmas though - I tend to find those a bit too artificial and restrictive. Some questions are hard (for me anyway), sorry for that.

    My goal is to gather answers to the same questions from various interesting people, so we all could learn about different perspectives on these topics and gather ideas for our own development and an open discussion.

    If you want to participate, please send me your reasons, and follow these instructions upon agreement.

Animals

Animals are multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia (or Metazoa). All animals can move spontaneously and independently at some point in their lives. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their lives. All animals are heterotrophs: they must ingest other organisms or their products for sustenance.
