Fucking, Love, and Omg: So our local children's hospital re- cently redecorated, but I'm not too sure they really thought things out yeahhiyellow: madisactuallyscreeching: wildhaunt: cazador-red: eternal-dannation: jhenne-bean: forlovefromfear: diasporanpapi: youthful-pills: ichigo-hiyoko: mintymaiden: gildatheplant: Literally any other colour would’ve been a better choice guys. I’d like to point out that the colour red has more positive than negative meanings. im sorry but this reply absolutely killed me red can mean whatever the heck you want it to mean, that is never going to change that this straight up looks like they DRAGGED A BLOODY BODY ACROSS THE FUCKING FLOOR 😂 Hi fun fact, colors do have meaning and there is a legit thing called color theory. Red does has more positive connotations than negative like the @mintymaiden said. Red is associated with more love, lust, passion than blood and death just like the chart shows you but If you want, here’s a link for you to check it out yourself. Also, check out “The Designer’s Dictionary of Color” by Sean Adams. Have fun learning something Xoxo -Designer What is Color Theory? I think y’all are missing the point here. You can theorize to Nebraska and back but that doesn’t change my immediate reaction which is that someone is literally dragging a corpse around I like that the presumption here is that “No One On Tumblr Has Heard of Color Theory, Let Me Explain in Depth” rather than simply acknowledging that the VISUAL EFFECTS of this particular color choice, applied in the manner it was, can still amount to “this is a hospital and that looks like blood” like, color theory doesn’t exist in a vacuum. If your design of choice for Blood Red Paint is asymmetric splatters and sploches against the wall, or in this case, a snail trail on the hallway’s floor, an infographic won’t override the viewers’ instinct. this post is the perfect summation of tumblr’s reading comprehension and critical thought abilities Homicide detectives: why are you dragging that bleeding corpse around? Me, an intellectual: well you see it’s basic color theory… @yeahhiyellow I found it. The post. I’ve wanted to show you. Fuck color theory. Omg this is the best post ever 😂 It looks like blood?

No it’s cOlOr THeOry Fun fact: if you fail to see how literally anyone looking at this will think “oh no someone dragged a body across the floor”, and instead go on and on about ~color theory~ you are an incompetent designer. Like, literally any designer worth their salt should have looked at the mock-up of this and said “hm,” and then decided “ok maybe let’s keep all the positive elements of Colour Theory red but maybe change the pattern.” Literally anything would have worked. Over-sized footprints. Smiley faces. Arrows. Crawling ivy. Polka dots. Stars. Anything except a blood trail. Yes, theyook like blood trails And I am convinced that the kids in that hospital play “drag the body” with their friends because it would be hilarious

Brains, Energy, and Food: "You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass." - Bruce Lee Every thought we have activates a cluster of neurons, they send an action potential down the axons to cross synapse that releases neurotransmitters. If we keep reactivating this network, it becomes stronger because surrounding glial cell feed the cluster and it becomes thicker and stronger. We are literally talking ourselves out of success. If something goes wrong in your life and you make the mistake of making it personal telling yourself a shit story about "how it is", you’re dirtying up your mind with dangerous shit. All of our fears are self-created. They form in the brain's default mode network and are greatly amplified when the brain's alarm and avoidance network is on. This drives our decisions because emotion supersedes thought. We fear rejection, embarrassment, loss, and abandonment, powerful emotions that override positive thought. For most people they are focused on what could go wrong and feel embarrassed; this is EXACTLY what creates these emotions that are holding us back. There's a 90-second rule which states that, if one can redirect their focus off the bullshit story, the network will stop firing neurotransmitters down the action potential; that kills the emotion. Negative Emotion is just like too much alcohol, we need to sober up! Most people cannot do this; 15 months ago I couldn't either when it counted the most because there is an underlying cause of stress, cellular stress, which puts the brain in the SAME CHAOS, alarm and avoidance. I call this red stress, and it's in the food supply in the form of AGE's, ALE's, aldehydes, estrogen mimics, microplastics, mitotoxins etc. Your body is at war, and it needs cofactors to fight each battle, and most people lack there too. This war must be financed, it diverts energy to fight battle after battle. You will experience this as being tired, lose focus, become moody and stressed. Wouldn't this energy be better-spent financing focus, passion, and success? Take out red stress💫 I'm building a free course on doing just that, it's opening us soon.

Advice, Ass, and Bad: embyrr922 pyrrhiccomedy ifshehadwings ovaadosedonconfidenc Intuition is real. Vibes are real. Energy doesn't lie. Tune in This is actually called thin slicing. Your brain recognizes patterns from very small "slices" of information by comparing them to things you have experienced betore. This all happens very quickly ona subconscious level without our conscious mind being involved. So intuition is actually really fast pattern recognition, and it can be very accurate. So yeah, if you have a gut feeling that a person or situation is not good, get the hell out. Your brain knows what's up When I was young - because l've always been a big skeptical pain in the ass I thought that when people were talking about interpersonal "energy," they were on some Gay Ass Shit. Years later, after spending hundreds of hours reading studies about intuition and neuroscience and pattern recognition and the processing power of the subconscious mind, I realized that that kind of talk - "she has such good energy," "you need to read the energy of the room," "l just got some really bad energy off of that guy - is a convenient shorthand for the lightning-rast, weirdly-accurate, real-as-fuck subconscious processing of the probability of positive or negative social outcomes likely to result from hundreds or thousands of variables. That "energy" isn't a tangible thing floating around in the air. It's your brain updating you constantly with information about your situation. Listen to it. Especially if it's telling you to be nervous or scared. Your brain is very good at recognizing danger. Let the enormous processing power of your subconscious mind protect you. It's better at spotting patterns than you are "Bad energy" isn't some hippie shit. It's your brain setting off a claxon because it knows something's not right. Thin slicing is wonderfully helpful, but be aware that if it's doing its pattern recognition from bad sources, you need to actively override it. We're raised in a racist society, inundated with racist media, and bombarded with subtly (or unsubtly) racist advice. Thin slicing can save your life, but it's also the cause behind the unconscious elements of racism (and misogynylableism/antisemitism/islamophobia/etc.) that we all suffer from Trust your instincts, but if your instincts tell you something that seems prejudicial, double check their work Trust your gut. Unless your gut is a dumbass.

Brains, Nerd, and Shit: mariaschuyler I just got the weirdest feeling I swear you-deserve-a-rhink OK LISTEN THERE ARE REASONS FOR THIS!!! A lot of these places are called liminal spaces - which means they are throughways from one space to the next. Places like rest stops, stairwells, trains, parking lots, waiting rooms, airports feel weird when you're in them because their existence is not about themselves, but the things before and after them. They have no definitive place outside of their relationship to the spaces you are coming from and going to Reality feels altered here because we're not really supposed to be in them for a long time for think about them as their own entities, and when we do they seem odd and out of place The other spaces feel weird because our brains are hard-wired for context - we like things to belong to a certain place and time and when we experience those things outside of the context our brains have developed for them, our brains are like NOPE SHIT THIS ISN'T RIGHT GET OUT ABORT ABORT. Schools not in session, empty museums, being awake when other people are asleep - all these things and spaces feel weird because our brain is like "I already have a context for this space and this is not it so it must be dangerous." Our rational understanding can sometimes override that immediate "danger'" impulse but we're still left with a feeling of wariness and unease Listen I am very passionate about liminal spaces they are fascinating stuff or perhaps I am merely a nerd 883,376 notes Liminal spaces
