Koi Fish. Symbol Of Courage, Aspiration, & Advancement - Unknown Source

Koi (鯉) or more specifically nishikigoi (錦鯉), literally “brocaded carp”), are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp (Cyprinus carpio) that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens.

Koi varieties are distinguished by coloration, patterning, and scalation. Some of the major colors are white, black, red, yellow, blue, and cream. The most popular category of koi is the Gosanke, which is made up of the KohakuTaisho Sanshoku, and Showa Sanshoku varietie.

The Raw and the digital. As we progress into the future, more and more we get instances of stark contrast between the almost brutal minimalism of new design and the raw untouched “design” of the natural world. Its the combination of these two elements that I really like the aesthetic of. 

The Tehachapi-based, independent “citizen science” group Science for the Masses created the sellable “night vision eye drop” after researching a natural molecule called Chlorin e6. Ce6 allows certain deep sea fish to see in the dark.

After applying the drops, scientists were able to clearly and instantly recognize people over 160 feet away in pitch blackness standing in the woods. Their eyes absorbed so much more light, sunglasses were required indoors.

Fortunately, the molecule can also easily by extracted from plants like algae, and it’s already used in some cancer treatments, so it’s proven human-safe.

Don’t do things just because people say you should do them. Investigate the matter. Determine whether it supports and advances you. I’ve found myself acting out of “requirement”. “Well you are xyz, so you should do this.” If your spirit isn’t feeling it and it doesn’t advance you in the direction that you ultimately want to go, take a step back. To some people, decisions are life-or-death, once in a lifetime. To the person who has faith, you understand that every matter doesn’t always support your divine cause. Work to stack up the experiences that support your ultimate vision because it is your vision that you want to come into fruition, not someone else’s.
