"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."
"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
"And in fact I’m now asking an idle question of my own: which is better — cheap happiness, or lofty suffering? Well, which is better?"
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes from the Underground
Sound of Honda – Ayrton Senna’s Fastest F1 Lap (1989) in Light and Sound
With over 100 sensors and 6.5 billion data points delivered in real-time, today the F1 is as much as about predicting the future as it is about shaving milliseconds on the circuit. In 1989, Ayrton Senna set the world’s fastest lap during the F1 Japanese Grand Prix Qualifying. His driving data of that lap was recorded and collected through telemetry system, a technology introduced to F1 by Honda. This project, a collaboration between Dentsu, Honda Motor and Rhizomatiks brings back Senna’s engine sound from that lap 24 years ago in the form of an installation set on the original Suzuka circuit that uses light and sound.
The data from Senna’s fastest lap was found as a single sheet of paper stored deep down Honda’s R&D storehouse. Prior to this project, some parts of the data have once been disclosed in a book on F1 technology, but this is the very first time that the complete data of the whole lap was disclosed to the public.

any suggestions for somebody who suffers from very bad anxiety and low self esteem issues? and what are the possible spiritual causes of these things?
Self-esteem becomes an issue when you don’t know who you are. Low self-esteem meaning believing that person to be something meager. High self-esteem means believing that person to be something amazing. Both are lies.
The game of self-esteem cannot be won. Because even to have ‘high’ self-esteem means deluding yourself with false beliefs regarding the nature of your identity.
Because you do not know who you really are, you look to the eyes of strangers and the outcomes from circumstances to give you some clue. That is where you open yourself to suffering and false truths.
When I say ‘who you really are’ I don’t mean what kind of person you are. The appearance of being a person shifts and changes throughout life. We can be many different sorts of people. But the reality of your existence remains ever the same, and that is your essential identity.
It is vibrant aliveness, simple awareness. When you know this for yourself, all other means of identity and understanding yourself are seen as secondary. You don’t take those things too seriously, even though you see their momentary use.
Anxiety means you are worrying about what you may find out. You worry that if you uncover the truth of who you are, it may be something awful or terrible. Anxiety means you are afraid of what this moment may be if you don’t try to control it. You worry about how the future may unfold negatively for you, as if it could rob you of something.
It feels like anxiety protects you but it does not. Anxiety wants to continue, it wants to perpetuate itself. But the dirty secret is that anxiety needs you, you do not need anxiety.
Daily meditation keeps this in perspective, along with daily reading from sources of spiritual inspiration.
A book I would highly recommend for you is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.
"When we acknowledge our shared humanity with another person, we connect with them in a surprisingly intimate way. They become like family to us, and this helps dissolve our isolation and aloneness."
