A Free New You … A Free New Me!

Just a couple of Free New Bees!

What’s with the overuse of the words ‘Free & New’ Anyhow!?

Marketers know there are potent words in advertising, like “Free” and “New.” Neuroscientists have now determined that the appeal of “new” is hard-wired into our brains.

Novelty activates our brain’s reward center, which may have been an evolutionary advantage to our ancestors as they encountered new food sources or other elements of survival.

Same-same with the modern bloggers!?

Today, we are no longer hunters and gatherers, but more and more bloggers and ‘like’ dopamine gatherers! Yet, the novelty-seeking circuitry is still active and makes us find new followers and even repackaged old blog posts) attractive.


Just curious to see if it really works!

Three, Six, Nine: Tesla Sees?

As Nikola Tesla said over and again:

If you knew the significance of three, six and nine, you would have a key to the Universe.

Yes! You’d surely win.

Nikola Tesla did countless mysterious things, but he was a whole other mystery himself. Like a lot of genius’ he had a strange obsession: a real doozy!

He would walk around a block repeatedly three times before entering a building. He would clean his plates with 18 napkins. He would do everything in sets of 3.

He was a Serbian-born scientist inventor who lived in the Hotel New Yorker on the 33rd floor, room 3327. He would make calculations about things in his immediate environment to make sure the result was devisable by 3 and would base his choices upon the results.

And yes, he had a fondness for pigeons and fell in love with one particular white pigeon! And he died on January 7, 1943 in New York City at age 86 shortly after the death of his pigeon true love.

He was the founder of modern electricity and did pioneering work in electricity and robotics and had numerous inventions to include the eponymous Tesla Coil.

But what’s with the Universe and three, six and nine?

Well, for Tesla, these numbers presented a mystery of an unexplained pattern: these numbers show up repeatedly in our Universe.

It is alleged that he had calculated nodal points around the planet, and they were probably linked to the numbers three, six and nine and Tesla claimed that these numbers were extremely important. Yes, he was surely obsessed with the numbers 3, 6 and 9.

He understood a fundamental fact, unknown to many: the universal language of mathematics. A science discovered by man, not invented by him.

This post is getting much to long for me. So if interested, you should do some of your own research on three, six and nine, you see!
