"Western man, Jung saw, always wants to do something, to “get somewhere”; this kind of restlessness is characteristic of us all. A few years later, when Jung met the Pueblo chief Ochwiay Biano during his trip to Taos, he told Jung that the whites were always dissatisfied, and that this led to their cruelty. The kind of consciousness Jung encountered in North Africa was content with what is. At an oasis, Jung felt that “everything here was exactly the way it should be and the way it had always been.”28 Westerners usually feel this only after a few drinks or under the influence of drugs, hence their popularity. We find it inordinately difficult to relax, but what Jung found in North Africa was a consciousness that allowed the ego to slow down and sink into the warm embrace of the unconscious, as if after perpetually treading water, we suddenly discovered we could float."

I grind my teeth. Thoughts come out. My jaw, sore and all clamps down to squeeze the bone like structure arched around bleeding rosy gums. An aching desire to capture that rushing feeling of being entirely there in your existence leads to a humming, lingering, beneficial stress. Hey! Stick your skull into it, but first gather a serious ramming speed. I like uppers.

PhoneBloks Wants to Make a Modular Phone - And Needs Your Help

PhoneBloks is a conceptual smartphone which is modular - making the individual major components replaceable and offering customization like no other phone on the market today.

There are many reasons, of course, why the big manufacturers aren’t putting something like this on the market - e.g profit, but the concept is a great one and if anything the message about tech waste needs to be spread.

You can help Dave (the guy behind this concept) out by donating your social reach on Thunderclap (which is crowdsourcing for social messaging - this site in itself is pretty neat so if you haven’t been there yet head on over). https://www.thunderclap.it/all

What do you think? Would you buy a phone like this?
