There is nothing wrong with either; however, if you’re in the house-user camp, something is to be…

Home vibe – what it really is and how to positively resonate with your home, part 1

Home vibe is not a myth. It is controllable, measurable and real. As obvious as this may be, the less obvious part is the strong dependence between vibe and meaning. Science may not have quite all the tools set up, but the foundation is there, and the data is available. When lawyer and philosopher Tam…

The force is magnetic and acts upon electrically charged particles accelerating them as a result. Both the electrical field and the magnetic force have a kinetic effect on the particles. Now does that not sound like…

Backyard detox through design – on a budget or not so much…

Get your detox before the winter with a bit of design therapy. With so little of the summer left, it is high time you do two things: try and enjoy your backyard more if you did not and, plan for its improvement for next year. Renovations are still surging as many Torontonians have opted to…

Endogenous pharmacotherapy – stimulate your brain at least through rearranging your home

Without a doubt, the biggest power humans hold is their minds. What is mind, really?

Living through a pandemic and how a laid back attitude can take you through it

As someone living in the first world, I’m not accustomed to having my movements restricted, or my social appearance directed by the use of masks, nor am I accustomed to the sparsity of activities that I so cherished to do around my own city, Toronto. But not being a lingering pessimist, this type of thought does not last long; so I figured that instead, I would get a little perspective and look at where some of this has been imposed in much more nefarious circumstances.
