Visions while meditating

2021.12.03 06:54 Turbulent-Citron-557 Visions while meditating

Hey everyone. I just want to share this experience I had while meditating today. I've been meditating off and on about two years now, have been doing it daily the last couple of months (first to cope with a breakup, but now it's a daily routine I enjoy). I usually do 30 mins of mindfulness meditation, however because today is rather slow I decided to try the body scan guided meditation linked in one of the pages in this subreddit. During the meditation, these three pictures came up to me:

  1. a deep purple skyline
  2. washing animal insides in a colander (think like, chicken liver)
  3. sand moving (desert, not beach)
These felt different from my mind just drifting off, because a) the pictures came and went instantaneously (unlike drifting off where it's like, I'm thinking about this thing, and then this other thing, and then ...) and b) I could actually see it as if I was there.
It was... weird? I've only had something like this once in my life before and definitely not while meditating. I would love to hear your related experience or your insight regarding my experience. :)

2021.12.03 06:54 Spidey-Jackson Can writers stop portraying Killer Croc so Poorly?

It has been argued that Batman has the greatest rogues gallery in not just comics, but possibly in all of fiction. And yeah, it's not hard to see why many people agree with the sentiment. I mean guys like Joker, Penguin, Catwoman and Bane are some of the most iconic villains in history and that's just naming a few of them. For me personally however my favorite in Batman's cast of villains is Killer Croc AKA Waylon Jones. I know that might be kind of a rare take, but I find that Croc is a very engaging and interesting character when stories portray him correctly. Which is the the subject of my rant. So many writers in and out of the comics fail at telling good Croc yarns because they don't understand the character which leads to poor representation for Waylon. And think the reason behind this falls under 3 major factors
**First**: Too many unknowing readers and lazy writers Killer Croc at the surface level appears to be essentially DC"s version of Marvel's the Lizard, which he is not. People forget that Croc isn't supposed to be a literal giant crocodile man but a guy suffering from a severe *skin condition* that makes him look like one( I know that sounds pretty silly but it's comics, so we just gotta go with it). In spite of this Waylon is often depicted as having more than scaly skin and is often given pronounced snout and tail. Which makes no sense, why would a skin condition give a human the literal physical characteristics of a Crocodile?
And I know what you're thinking "But OP, don't modern stories propose the idea that Waylon's mutation isn't simply a skin disease but a form of extreme atavism?" And while yes this true this idea has 2 major flaws. The first being that when Croc is depicted with his human features deemphasized it tends to downplay his humanity, which is a core part of his character. Making him seem more like a crocodile makes him less expressive and writers tend to go for the "he's starting to regress mentally" thing which is really fucking boring. Because again, these 2 things don't help the stigma that he is just a carbon copy of The Lizard.
The second major flaw is that writers use the atavism thing as an excuse to give him weird powers like having a healing factor and the ability to regrow lost limbs. This makes me irrationally upset because Crocodiles **CAN NOT** regenerate their limbs, so him biting off his own arms just for them to grow back later makes absolutely no fucking sense and if anyone would have done a inkling of research we wouldn't have gotten such an odd mistake. Again, Killer Croc is not the lizard
**Second**: Pretty much every major adaption of Croc in media portrays him in a very negative light, either portraying him as mentally impaired meathead or an irredeemable monster that really, really, likes eating people and talking about eating people. Both of these things are not what the character was initially and completely misses what makes Waylon a compelling antagonist.
Batman TAS was a beloved show and alongside the movie got an entire generation of fans into Batman. And in this insanely popular show still discussed today how was Croc depicted? As a low life creep who is most remembered for him being so stupid that he go to response to everything was to "Hit Batman with a rock." Or how about his appearance in the first suicide squad movie where outside of being depicted as another mostly mindless brute the only character trait he had was that he liked watching BET in his cell(which I will admit it find to be very funny, but still). Even in the massively popular Arkham games Croc's more sympathetic attributes are all but removed as croc is depicted as animalistic cannibal that doesn't really think about much outside eating people. Seriously all his speaking lines with Batman essentially is him saying he wants to feast on him every other sentence.

None of these adaptions really do Waylon justice. Yes, Croc has done some bad things and made some wrong decisions, but that was only a result of his tormented youth and being rejected by society. All because he was different. However, ultimately in spite his villainous habits Croc is a noble character and is often portrayed as being the champion of the oppressed and downtrodden. He's a good guy who tried his best, but the world just keeps shitting on him. There was single issue story arc in Batman where Croc sacrificed himself to save a makeshift family of hobos that had adopted him. He risked his life so that NO ONE would die in flood caused by the building they were in collapsing.

In another story where he and a bunch of little girls are mind controlled by the mad hatter as soon as Croc broke free of the mind control he freed the other captives helped them to safety and then took vengeance on Hatter. Why is this Croc never showcased in the cartoons and video games???? Furthermore when he first debuted Croc was the original Bane. An incredibly powerful opponent for Batman physically and mentally. So the common casting of him as moron is character assassination
**Third**: The final point is biproduct of the other points, and that is the lack of consistentcy with his character. As I said, the original and my personal ideal of Croc is what I entailed in these previous paragraphs. However, he is often times not written like this in the comics. Depending on what story you read sometimes Croc isn't a cannibal at all and will at most bite people purely as an offensive/defensive tactic. Other times he serial man-eater who can barely control his own desire for human flesh. And getting back on the subject of his design, you could have him appear in a batman comic with no snout or tail, but that same week he could be in an issue of let's say Redhood or Nightwing and he will drawn with the full Alligator get up. And even thou i mentioned earlier that atavism is new explanation for his mutation, writers still go back and forth on whether not that's even the case. Sometimes it's the condition, sometimes it's the atavism and sometimes it's literally just the meta-human gene.
DC needs a mandate on his character consistently adhering to what has been established instead of him being a clay character, and being shaped and molded into whatever is needed for the story at that time. On the subject of clay I could write a similar rant about Karlo because he suffers from alot of the same issues.

2021.12.03 06:54 TorreyCool BillyWill7's comment on Dunkey's 'Dislikes are disabled' video

I was enjoying the video until you voiced your opinion on Shin Megami and sent me spiraling into an uncontrollable rage. A big red dislike button clouded my mind...I had to push it. Dunkey deserves this I thought. I scrolled down, ready to click. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. 0 dislikes. ZERO. Is Shit Megami really that bad?. Have I been wrong all along? Are all the games I have been playing bad too? That would explain why I haven't enjoyed a video game in years. So as my thanks to you Dunkey I am about to head out to my local Walmart to pick up copies of Knack and Knack 2.

The reuniting of the Henson twins with their older brother. It’s my favorite ending in the show.

2021.12.03 06:54 alwallace1984 That's it, I'm done with this game.

I've bought the Premium Edition and from Day 1, glitches, graphics artefacts, missions completed without the rewards, very poor performance despite powerful gaming PC (i7, 32Gb RAM, RTX 3070, M.2 SSD, etc.), tons of bugs (car comes to a complete stop in the middle of a run, cars flying off the map, stuck on the roof infinitely...).
Yesterday, without any change, I've got the same problem as the Steam user who posted his 'fix'. In what universe does a Windows key + mouse click + alt Tab solve a LOADING problem? This is simply unacceptable. I've uninstalled the game and will wait a few months until the devs fix the game for PC/Steam users. I'll NEVER buy another early access game, ever.

2021.12.03 06:54 officialgothgirl latency issues

I just downloaded Reaper as I wanted to try a new DAW to record my vocals for music in. I am using a usb Audio Technica AT2020 microphone.
When I record, my vocals seem to be a little off when I play them back and it makes it hard to get started at all. Can anyone help me with this issue? I don’t know much about this and I’m just trying my best.
My sample rate is 44100 if that helps and I’m going through direct sound. It says buffer is 8x1024.

2021.12.03 06:54 soccerpunk09 [M4F] longterm Bro and Sis roleplay

I'm 18+ Male and all participants and characters must be 18+ Looking for 18+ GIRLS ONLY
So I like doing a bro sis incest roleplay. A little about me:Male,30, live in Central time. I get super horny and I'm a bit of a perv.
So I'm looking for someone to satisfy my sexual lust and take away my boredom.
I don't need ref pics.
Not much of a story, i guess more of a slice of life, pretty much playing day by day in the rp.
For personality,I'd like a shy, cute, loving, innocent little sister who's a freak in bed,it's a turn off if you start acting bitchy,please dont act super slutty.
Your characters description: she's 5'5" and weighs 110lbs. Shes a quiet girl most of the time, even around family she would usually keep to herself, though always enjoyed being around her brother. She would usually talk only when it was needed and focused mainly on her studies. She has long blonde hair and blue eyes.
Your brother is a perv,but you love him anyway,after having sex with him,he becomes more pervy around you,you tease him about it but enjoy it at the same time because you become a bit of a perv yourself,you're still shy,you act a little slutty during sex and you love to tease your brother sexually.
Kinks: incest, big cock,kissing,public sex,public nudity,park sex, woods sex,beach sex, clothes sex, nudity beach, car sex,wall sex,passionate, rough and softcore sex,thearter sex, amusement park sex,water park sex, changing room sex, impregnation, creampies, blowjobs,big facials, tittyfuck,anal (giving), threesomes ffm and harem. If I think of any anymore I'll add it to the list
I don't do piss,vomit,blood,gore,bondage,bdsm,drama,name calling,insults,slave,cheating,rape, choking,eating ass, recieving anal, fingering ass. Do not call me daddy in the rp.
Im looking for a long term roleplay, not short, not a day or two,not a hour or two, an actual longterm roleplay, a romantic bro sis incest,like a bf gf but as brother and sister, just be a decent role player and quick replies to make the roleplay enjoyable,I'm hoping to get to know each other more than just in the rp.
Need someone who can roleplay with me Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Ok,I'm looking for someone who knows how to roleplay,can be detailed (dont have to be extremely detailed, because im not extremely detailed) and doesnt write one liners for a half hour,someone who actually has a personality and an imagination,you can add stuff in the rp to help the rp be more fun, i dont want someone who is dry.
If i do not respond back in a few minutes after your message, send another message,i might be busy when you message me.
It's a huge plus if you love having public sex, threesomes and harems(you playing as multiple girls). And if you want to do a harem in the rp(you playing multiple girls) you get first priority.
Please tell me when you are going to be busy,disappearing for a few hours and not telling me,will result in me removing you and blocking you.
No pics,dont need them
Message should start with Lyoko09.
