Daily Thoughts 08/30/2012
I have been reading more of Evolutionaries. One of the themes in the book is the evolution of consciousness. The history of consciousness was one of the doctoral programs where I got my undergraduate degree at University of California Santa Cruz in cultural anthropology. I remember taking a history of science course as an elective from this department which I enjoyed a lot.
I also read some more of Margarita Madrigal's Magic Keys to Spanish. There was a test in chapter 11 which was not too hard. I am hoping that it proves useful. I also read some more of How To Keep People From Pushing Your Buttons. The book has written exercises in it which is helpful. I often think self help books are more useful if they include exercises, visualizations, or specific activities. One of my favorite writing books, Writing Begins With the Breath has quite a few exercises which combine meditation and writing.
