️ Thank you for liking & subscribing, it means a lot.
Why this stream:
To make it a bit easier to get cognitive work done by using the pomodoro technique: deep work for blocks of 60 minutes followed by 10-minute breaks. If you get interrupted during the 60-minute blocks, whether by your (own inner) child seeking attention or an urge to check your messages: try to just write it down on a post-it and come back to it in a break or later in the day. If you do catch yourself astray, that’s alright! I do, all the time. As soon as you notice you’ve ended up in a distraction, just make a note and come back your object of focus. Again, and again.
Love & warm light,

Winter and Summer by Vivaldi
And, performed by Steve’s Bedroom band (cc-by-3.0):

3 String Quartets, Op. 7 I. & III. & IV. by Danzi, and
At the Monastery by Rimsky-Korsakov performed by Steve’s Bedroom band (cc-by-3.0)
Need more brain rest? Here is a playlist with my favorites, for a bit of ancient academia aesthetic at home.
Buy me a coffee:
I hope my streams and videos support you. If you want to support me back, and you are able to, you now have the opportunity to supply me with caffeine and get me through four more hours of thesis writing: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/physolophy
A big thank you to
for donating & fueling my thesis writing.
Just a poor little scrubby underpaid human groping blindly amid the mazes of the ultramicroscope… conscious of their ghastly mission and proud of it.

I’ve conducted my research & create these streams on the land of Australia’s Traditional Owners of Country, which has been the home of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities for thousands of years. Their contribution to science, conservation and community extends far into the past and continues today. To work on their land is to stand on the shoulders of giants. If you are interested in Australia’s nature and history, I recommend the films Walkabout, and Charlie’s Country (with the fantastic David Gulpilil young and older), and the documentary In My Blood It Runs. 🦘
