People who speak several languages are called polyglots. Multilingual speakers have acquired and maintained at least one language during childhood, the so-called first language.
To take it from The New York Times, in Japan, napping on the job is seen as a sign of diligence—as though you’re working yourself to exhaustion. There’s even a word for it: inemuri, which roughly translates to “present while sleeping.”
Inemuri isn’t new by any means, and has in fact been around for more than 1,000 years. However, it’s usually only cool in white collar jobs; you won’t find a barista napping on the clock. Also, inemuri isn’t only limited to work. It’s common to sleep in public—in coffee shops, in stores, on trains and buses. And because it’s baked into the culture, you’re extremely unlikely to get robbed if you fall asleep in public.

Short-lived are both the praiser and the praised, and rememberer and the remembered. ~ Marcus Aurelius, 121-180 AD, Roman Emperor ‐ Meditations VIII, 21

The word sitar comes from the Persian word ‘si’ meaning ‘three’ and the root word ‘tar’ meaning ‘string’. The word and the instrument it describes are very old, but they first became known in English around 1845.
Sitar refers to a stringed instrument popular in northern Indian classical music. The sitar is also found in the music of Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Most sitars have a long, hollow, wooden neck and a deep, pear-shaped body. A sitar is typically about 1.2 metres long and features tuning pegs on both the front and side of the neck, as well as 20 arched frets.
A sitar has a number of metal strings, each responsible for a different element of sound. Five strings play the melody, one or two strings keep the rhythm, and up to 13 additional strings can be added to enhance the raga, or melodic structure, of a piece of music.
Sitar players sit on the floor, holding the instrument in their laps at a 45-degree angle. The sitar is played by plucking the strings with a wire tool worn on the forefinger as the left hand manipulates the strings, much like a guitar.
Cultural relativism refers to not judging a culture to our own standards of what is right or wrong, strange or normal. Instead, we should try to understand cultural practices of other groups in its own cultural context.
“Accepting this moral wrong because of moral relativism based on culture is dangerous as it leads to indifference. If we cannot judge and moral rightness depends on certain cultures, then “anything goes”. Moral relativism leads to moral paralysis and indifference.” ~ https://sevenpillarsinstitute.org/moral-relativism-and-its-effects/
Am interconnected civilization hypnotised on drugs
Conversations, substances, materialism, ideas, hidden in coffee mugs
Society has decayed from drugs and abuse
The crime and tragedies that stem from their abuse
Transforming pure souls people into additive behaviour
Spinning us away from our true saviour
The organised crime with their tentacles reach
Corrupting, sucking life force leech
As personalities mutate
Into reaching an ever disappearing high state
All the drugs in this world won’t bring back your past
Some try every high they can touch, hoping it will last
Living for the addiction
One high after the next high
This sick addiction I’m living for
Without it emptiness ensues
A medicated lethal concoction
Telling yourself freedom will be tomorrow
Left in the shadows of sorrow
Trying to escape until something touches you
All the highs in the world won’t last
They won’t bring back your past
An angel trying to grasp home
Cycling round in the circus hypermind palindrome.
Dancing with the devil
Drugs intentionally unleashed
Societies on drugs
Someone’s cultural background can have a big influence on how they use and read body language. In many Western cultures, eye contact while speaking suggests openness and interest. People of other cultures, including many Eastern cultures, may avoid prolonged eye contact, as looking slightly down or to the side may seem more respectful. Nodding indicates agreement in many cultures. In others, it might just mean the other person acknowledges your words.
Neurodiverse people may also use and interpret body language differently than neurotypical people do. For example, you might fidget when you’re bored, but neurodiverse people might fidget in order to increase focus, calm nervousness, or self-soothe in other ways. Autistic people may also have trouble reading body language.
Certain mental health conditions can also impact someone’s body language. Someone with social anxiety might find it extremely hard to meet and hold someone’s gaze, for example. People who prefer to avoid touching others may not shake hands or embrace when greeting someone. Being aware of boundaries some people may have around casual touch can help you avoid assuming someone dislikes you.
