Ah Meditation

Hi Everyone, I’ve been following Dr. Wayne Dyer’s teaching and his Ah meditation for a while. I am a computer artist working in Canada. I’ve been impressed his Ah meditation so much. I decided to translate Dr. Wayne Dyer’s Ah meditation to share especially for Koreans who don’t speak English. I rerecorded and modified it for Koreans to understand better. This is only for a reference of Wayne Dyer’s Ah meditation. Please if you are interested in this, I have a direct link to the original mediation by Wayne Dyer. Hope this could be an opportunity for you to explore how to manifest for your happy life and a chance to learn why meditation has to be a part of our life. I hope you enjoy. Thank you. Recording at Rodney Warner music studio in LA. 안녕하세요, 저는 웨인 다이어 박사의 가르침과 그의 ‘아’ 명상을 작년부터 실행하고 있었습니다. 저는 캐나다와 미국에서 일하고있는 컴퓨터 아티스트입니다. 저는 그의 가르침과 특히 ‘아’ 명상에 매우 감동했으며 명상으로인한 저의 삶의 놀라운 변화에 감사하며 영어를 못하는 한국인들을 위해 웨인 다이어 박사의 아 명상을 번역, 재녹음하기로 결심했습니다. 한국인이 더 잘 이해하도록 재 나름대로 수정했습니다. 이 비디오는 단지 웨인 다이어의 아 명상을 알리기 위한 것입니다. 혹 관심이 있으시다면, 웨인 다이어의 원래의 명상을 직접 링크를하시기 바랍니다. 이 명상이 우리의 행복한 삶을 위해, 우리의 삶의 중요한 일부가 되야하는 이유를 배울 수있는 기회가 될 수있는 계기가 되길바랍니다. 고맙습니다.

Changing the way we think – My journey with Dr. Pillai...

Most of my life I have been drawn to mediation as a way to possibly learn about life’s deeper meaning. When I was in my early 20’s I was committed to full time mediation for 2 years. I always thought the genuine routine of human beings that we know doesn’t seem to be enough. Some of the biggest things I don’t understand are getting old, being sick and the meaning of the death. Perhaps most people accept this as it is a natural phenomenon. Not for me. I guess I can’t do much about it  because I don’t know the answers yet. But I can’t stop questioning. I was doing sound meditation for a while with Dr. Wayne Dyer’s Aah / Om meditation. I always enjoyed being in nature and listening to nature. My eyes and ears are always looking out for answers to these questions I have. I didn’t even know how to write them in words. Following Dr. Wayne Dyer, gave me the eyes to read my questions and now I am learning some new mediations. I know my ears will be able to listen for what I’ve been seeking my whole life. Dr. Pillai’s teaching is to enable the mind to conceive. Recently I started taking a meditation journey with Dr. Pillai. I really enjoy his teaching. They help to clear my thoughts and get them in order.   I decided to write about my studies and experience while I am doing this course to share with others. The sound = intelligence = creation. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” ( John 1:1) “And what is the word? It just a sound. Sound waves is matter. They are the fundamental vibrations that creates...

나의 간증문

나의 간증문 저는 어릴때부터 질문이 유독하게도 많은 아이였습니다. 특히 우리는 무엇을 위해서 태어났는지, 산다는 건 무엇인지, 죽는다는 건 무슨 의미가 있는건지. 이 자연의 이치를 보면 모든 존재하는것들은 뚜렷한 삶의 의미가 있고 또한 그들의 할일이 아주 분명하게 정해져있고 자연스럽게 그들이 해야할일들을 합니다. 예를 들어 일본의 해변에서 부화하는 바다거북이들은 북미대륙 서해안, California, Mexico로 8000 miles 이나 되는 open ocean을 GPS는 물론 아무 guide도 없이 항해를 합니다. 그리고 성장한후 다시 일본으로 돌아온답니다. 과학이 발달됨에 따라 우리는 엄청나게 많은 자연의 신비와 기적들을 듣습니다. 어릴 때, 저는, 세상에서 새들이 가장 위대한 동물들의 왕이라고 생각했습니다. 얼마나 대단하면 날개를 주어서 날아가게 할까! 어릴때 아버지의 우산을 들고 창문에서 뛰어내릴정도로 자유롭게 날아다니는 새들을 저는 매우 흠모했습니다. 그렇다면 우리 인간은 왜 이렇게 다른것인지, 한국사람이라면 짜장면과 짬뽕을 두고 고민을 안해보신 분은 없을겁니다. 인간은 왜 이리도 복잡하게 사는지. 왜 우리는 스스로 생각할수 있는 능력이 주어져있고 항상 선택을 해야하는 위치에 있을는건지? 도대체 이것은 무엇을 의미하는것인지? 1년 전, 약 4년동안 혈압약을 복용하고있던 저는 우리의 신체에 많은 관심을 갖게 돠었습니다. 특히 우리몸의 재생능력에 관해 공부를 많이했습니다. 우리몸은 생길 병의 치유방법을 이미 알고있는듯, 그 재생에 필요한 물질들을 즉각발동시켜서 치료함을 알게되었고  저의 고혈압도 쉽게 음식조절로 고치게 되었습니다. 그러나 아무리 식사조절을 잘해도 엄청난 스트래스를 받고 나면 다시 혈압이 올라감을 체험했습니다. 강아지가 오로지 주인의 기분을 살피듯 우리의 몸도 우리의 마음에 따라 컨디션을 바꾸는 것 같았습니다. 그러다가 인간 게놈 프로젝트 결과에 관해 읽게 되었고 많은 질병의 원인이 유전자 염색체라는 것도 알게되었습니다. 현대 과학적으로도 증명된 우리몸속의 엄청난 기능뿐아닌 우리의 생각, 느낌, 우리의 3-4대에 걸친 조상들의 생활습관은 물론이고 그들의 사고개념까지도 그들 후손의 몸과 마음에 큰 영향을 끼친다고 합니다. 지금의 현대의학은 그래서 유전학에 많은 집중을 두고 있습니다. 도대체 우리 인간이 무엇이기에 이런 엄청난 일들이 우리 개개인의 몸에서 일어나고 있는지. 저는 이러한 몸을 가지고 있는 제 자신이 매우 특별하게 느껴졌습니다. 우리의 몸이 이정도라면  우리의 두뇌는 도대체 상상이상이겠구나 싶었습니다. 흥분된 감정으로 우리의 마음 공부를 시작했습니다. 그런데 희한한건 꼭 누군가 절 인도하는 듯한 느낌이 들었습니다. 한가지를...

A List of Super Foods that I have Found to Help me Eat Healthier...

This is the list of “super foods” I’ve researched. I have simplified them using images below. When I am at the grocery store shopping and I’m not sure what to get, this list helps me to buy foods that will be as healthy as possible.

Healthy Life. Happy Food....

Soo’s New Diet in Montreal   I am new in town to Montreal, Canada. Because I am not sure how long I am going to be here, I did not move my kitchen from LA. Basically I have nothing to cook with. It was challenging for me in the beginning. I was continuously hungry and my tummy was not tolerant with outside food. However, I still want to eat well and enjoy the food that the locals in Montreal have to offer. I did some research and my new eating method seems to be working. It is very simple, efficient and free from animal product! My breakfast   Home Made Muesli:  Oats, Nuts, Seeds and Fresh Fruits It is better and cheaper to make you own: Choose your preferred muesli  base or mix both: Oats / Barley Variety of Nuts: Raw Almond, Raw walnuts or any other of your favorite nuts. But get them in raw. ( I mix at least 5 different kinds of nuts) Variety of Seeds: Chia, Flax (mandatory), Hemp  ( 1-2 tea spoons each of them) , Sunflower, Pumpkin etc. ( Mix at least 4 different kinds of seeds) Variety of  Fresh Fruit: ( 3 different kinds), Dried fruit ( not too much because it would be too sweet) Optional: Cucumber: I sometimes love to mix it in my bowl. Yummy and surprisingly it goes well with it. Cucumber is a veggie that you can eat with fruit. Finally, non-sweetened Almond Milk ( I prefer) or Soy milk I eat most of my fruits in the morning only. I try to not mix my veggies and fruits except cucumber, tomato, sprouts. You will get fermentation if you mix most fruits and most veggies because fruits are much faster to digest then veggies. Veggies + Grains = OK Fruit...

My Subbody Butoh Experience...

  My Subbody Butoh Experience     Last Saturday my new dear friend Deva was talking about her experience doing a subbody butoh. It sounded so unique, I decided to try it out. The class was 3 hours long and we were about 10 people. In the beginning of the class, I was told to try to be calm, listen to my inner body and move in 4 different simple directions ( forward/backward, left/right circles) . I was laying down and tring to do what the instructor asked me to do but I was not sure what I was suppose to do at all. After a bit of rest we started movement with the head, shoulders and other body parts one by one.     Slowly I felt changes in my body and mind. It felt empty, dark and calm. My instructor told me to stand up. I felt like a baby trying to stand up for the first time. I moved my body but it was very hard. She told us to try to walk like it’s the first time in my life. I didn’t really need to try because actually it was like my first time. When I tried to take my first step, I lifted one leg up and then I did not know whether to put my heell or my toes down first. Keeping my balance was very challenging, yet I didn’t seem to mind and I kept trying. I didn’t have many thoughts in my mind besides figuring out how to walk. I was doing what I was told and that is all I could think of. Really, it was that simple. Soon my body figured out how to put my weight on the other leg and take the...

Arnold For Maya – Lights 3...

Area Light   Maya Area Light Leave as the default Intensity and Exposure value. Turn off Normalize. Scale the area light. Adjust the light effects by scaling the size. Area Light from Arnold parameter    Arnold Area Light As a default setting it renders very dim because of the quadratic fall off. Turn off Normalize. This works exactly like maya area light. But it has an additional option. That is light shape. It can be changed to cylinder, disk or quad. Mesh Light The last Arnold area light is mesh light. We are able to use any mesh within our scene as a source. Create a geometry and go to the Arnold menu and select mesh light. ( your geometry must be selected when you select the mesh light.) It will create an area light with the same shape of your geometry. You must keep your original geometry in order to use your area light. Turn off Normalize and visuality off as you wish.   Read the rest of articles Arnold for Maya – Part 1 Arnold for Maya – Part 2 Arnold for Maya – Part...

Arnold for Maya – Lights 1...

This note explains how to use both the default Maya lights and Arnold specific lights in Arnold renders.   I am going to start with a default maya point light.   In the attribute editor of the point light, see  the decay type under Arnold menu: In comparison Quadratic came out very dark compared to Constant. The reason for this is the decay rate. To make it physically accurate we need to increase its intensity , exposure, radios and sample etc.   Below is an example of Exposure, radios. I increased the sample value to reduce the noise from increasing radios.   Shadow density: How density shadow should be. The default 1 as it is physically accurate. Volumetric Fog:  Enable “aiVolumescattering” in the render setting.   Default Maya light type   Directional light Exposure: we can make it brighter or darker. Angle: makes it more diffuse in the edges but the contacts are still sharp. Samples: Increasing this will reduce a lot of noise.   Spot light Using the default spot light the rendering came out really dark because of fall off. So increase the intensity and exposure as well. Adjust cone angle, penumbra Angle and drop off ( Controls the intensity base on the center to the outer edge of the light). Intensity, Exposure, Penumbra, Drop off Aspect Ratio The aspect ratio will give the light more of an anamorphic shape. Lens Radius Lens Radius is how large the light source should be. ( I have enabled the volume scattering in my shot for the demo.) To be continued in part 2   Read the rest of articles Arnold for Maya – Part 1 Arnold for Maya – Part 2 Arnold for Maya – Part...

Arnold for Maya – Image Based Lighting...

The following article explains how to use image based lighting using Arnold within Maya.   Image Based Lighting simulates light from a hemisphere or dome above the scene representing the sky. It can also be used with high dynamic range (HDR) images to perform image-based environment lighting. This is the node which is typically used for lighting exterior scenes.   Go to Arnold top and click “Lights” and then create a “SkydomeLight”. If you change the scale or position of the skydomLight it would not do anything. It would only make a difference  if we were to rotate with HDR image applied onto it. Make sure there are no lights in your Maya scene. When you render as it is you get a Gi_based render. Most of the Skydomelight property controls is within the SkydomelightShape in the attributer editor. For example color, intensity, use color temperature etc. HDR images have a greater capacity to describe light accurately (by way of floating point numbers) because they store the amount of light (rather than just color) represented in a pixel. This prevents ‘blown out’ or extremely dark areas in an image that your eyes compensate for in the natural world. How add an HDR image into the scene.     Sample: Controls the quality of the noise in the soft shadows and direct specular highlight. The higher the number of samples, the lower the noise, and the longer it takes to render. The exact number of shadow rays sent to the light is the square of this value multiplied by the AA samples.   In my case, this AA increase allows me to decrease the other sampling rates (GI/glossy/light) to compensate. To sum up, I get almost the same render time with AA=1 and GI=9 than with AA=9...

Understanding the basics of CG Lighting...

Through all my years in the movie making industry I have studied the intricacies of CG Lighting techniques and have come up with the following article to give those just getting started some baseline knowledge on the concepts involved. Hope you enjoy! Overview Source of Lights Basic Lights Basic Lighting Setup Shadows Imaged Based Lighting Lighting Effect Source of Lights Including both natural and artificial sources This is a list of sources of light. The sun, moon, fire  and artificial source such as light bulbs etc.    Sunlight “Painting” and Sunlight “CGI”   In the past, artists observed and mimicked whatever there is in the natural world that they desired to paint. We can find several lighting conditions in the natural world or environments such as the most common and natural phenomena – sunlight. We have here on this second example, a computer generated image using the same sun-lit technique, forcing computer artists to do the same as painters to mimic what is in the environment world.   Candle Light   In an example of artificial light, such as light candles or light bulbs a similar challenge forces all kinds of artists including CG artists to follow the same rules of physical lighting. Most of the time using artificial lights helps achieve very dramatic scenery.   Basic lights   We have different ways of achieving these lighting effects. The most common lighting techniques used in any 3d program are spot lights, point lights and directional lights.  With these, we can achieve any result we desire in creating CGI images.   Key light A main light. It simulates the sun or moon. It also provide a main shadow on the objects.   Fill light No direct light. It could be sky or ambient.   Rim lights...

What to Eat?

What to Eat?   These are my notes what I believe that the best foods to eat are to enhance our immune system against cancer.  Writing in English is still a challenge for me and even worse with biology words so please bear it with me. It is only going to be better. The adult human body is made up of about 60-90 trillion cells and over 200 different kind of cells.  In means, if you lined up all the cells in a human body end-to-end, you could actually circle the earth 4.5 times. So keeping your health well also means that you are protecting your healthy cells. The question is how we can keep our cells safe. One of most important part thing of the cell is the cell surface. Because the antenna on the cell surface is a key to healthy development and disease prevention.   Next one is Mitochondria. Mitochondria are the energy factories of the cells.  The cell will have a lot of structures that are capable of producing a high amount of available energy.   Therefore, “the best food” means that has a lot of materials which will protect our cells. We also need to know what will destroys our cells. Free Radicals are the most harmful thing our body ever produced. It destroys our cell surface, Mitochondrial and does damage to our DNA. It plays a role in inflammatory disease and progression to cancer. The amount of Free Radicals our body produces is depend on our life style. Our body produce more if you do over eating, over working and are stressed etc. It is important how much Free Radicals are been produced and it is also important the direction it takes.   Normally, the body can handle free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if the free-radical production...

General Lighting Adjustment in Nuke...

General Lighting Adjustment   Continuing this note from “Foreground Compositing in Nuke” which I posted 8th of Nov.   We have the neutralizer color correction “Grade2” which is right under Transform node.  Get the HueCorrect and drag and over the line between Grade2 and Keymix. To do HueCorrect, look to the HueCorrect node then put the mouse over to the area closer to the green screen and to see what color it is fall into. On the edge of step here on the hue graph here the yellow line keeps indicating the value where the mouse is. Click the g_sup on the hue graph. It stops around 1.7 in the hue region. The section we want to pull down where the arrow is. You can’t drag this horizontally and vertically at the same time. Drag the point over the yellow line . Then you can pull it down to the control point and also pull down right to the next one to get rid of more of the green. You can play around with the left control point to get some red back. Now you can toggle off & on  the HueCorrect node. It looks natural and less green. However we pull the green light out it becomes darker. To solve this problem: On the color figure, the angle of the circle is the hue, it is kind of unwrapped. So the result is  the reduction of luminance. One of the solution for this to go up to Luminance ( command+click on the Luminance curve) then reduce the brightness without reducing the green color.. If you look at the set, the wall of background is not definitely white. There are some lights from the fountain or some bounce lighting seated on the wall. So the stair object should be tilted by interacting...

Tracking part 2 in Nuke...

Tracking part 2    Lens distortion Grid in Nuke    I have an over 700 frames of a footage to track. 1. Set up the project settings correctly. Press “s” to bring up the settings. Then change the format to the full resolution of the image. The resolution settings should be there at the bottom of the list. Set your frame range. In this case, the frame range is “0 to 791″. 2. Connect to the Lens distortion which we made earlier. “Toggle Off and On” on the Lens distortion  node. Then you will see the difference between the settings. You should find that it correctly fixes the lens distortion. ( Tip: whenever you change the zoom or your focus, you have to re-shoot the lens distortion grid in theory.)  “Command+x” to disconnect  the lens distortion  node from the footage for now. 3. Get the “CameraTracker” and connect it directly to the source footage. 4. We are going to copy the value of the distortion to the CameraTracker from the LensDistortion. Double click the lens distortion node, you will see the Radial Distortion 1 and the Radial Distortion 2. In the CameraTracker property click “Lens” tap. As a default, you see Lens Distortion is set to “No Lens Distortion“. We are going to choose “Known Lens” ( In this case, we know our lens’s value). For the Lens Type, choose “Spherical“. 5. Go to the LensDistortion property, Radial Distortion 1. Move your mouse to the animation menu box to the right,. Your mouse cursor will change to a mickey mouse hand. Grab it and move to the CameraTracker’s property’s Radial Distortion 1. Repeat the process for Radial Distortion 2. Now you have the match values for the CameraTracker. Once you are done, check on “Undistort Input” on the CameraTrackers...

Tracking part 1 in Nuke...

Tracking part 1 in Nuke   Lens Distortion Grid in Nuke 1. An Image of Lens Distortion Grid: Shooting Lens Grid which should be big enough to cover the entirety of a shot in focus. That gets pretty expensive. In this practice we use a laser tweezer, shoot a blank  wall and cover them horizontally and vertically. Make sure to get the right lens setting when you shoot. (Distortion patten should match) Still image Max Image 2. Isolated Red channel ( because it gives most visibility). Get shuffle node and set it to RED. 3. After shuffle node, attach Lens Distortion node. 4. Lens Distortion node has 3 different way to analyze the distortion and in this case we are going to use Line Analysis. 5. In the Line Analyses tab,  you turn “Drawing Mode“on,  Click to the right of the center of the line and click again further down repeatedly. When you get the last point and made a mistake you can click “Delete Last Point” and re-click on the line. When you get the last point, right click and that closes it out. Go to the different frame and make more lines. ( Tip: Command+Z (undo) doesn’t seem to be working.) 6. When it is done, turn off “Drawing Mode” and click “Analyses lines“. Go to LensDistortion tab and check the “Undistort” check box. This is a very minor lens distortion there but it still closer. 7. If you know you are working on lots of shots which need the same lens distortions, select the lens distortion node then go to “ToolSets” ( Left corner of Nuke’s interface). Name it Click the “ToolSets” icon again now we have a section called adduction/lensing. It will now load up for any shots you...

Life in the Universe

The following article originated from Stephen Hawking’s website: http://www.hawking.org.uk/life-in-the-universe.html Stephen Hawking Life in the Universe This lecture is the intellectual property of Professor S.W.Hawking. You may not reproduce, edit, translate, distribute, publish or host this document in any way with out the permission of Professor Hawking.Note that there may be incorrect spellings, punctuation and/or grammar in this document. This is to allow correct pronunciation and timing by a speech synthesiser. In this talk, I would like to speculate a little, on the development of life in the universe, and in particular, the development of intelligent life. I shall take this to include the human race, even though much of its behaviour through out history, has been pretty stupid, and not calculated to aid the survival of the species. Two questions I shall discuss are, ‘What is the probability of life existing else where in the universe?’ and, ‘How may life develop in the future?’It is a matter of common experience, that things get more disordered and chaotic with time. This observation can be elevated to the status of a law, the so-called Second Law of Thermodynamics. This says that the total amount of disorder, or entropy, in the universe, always increases with time. However, the Law refers only to the total amount of disorder. The order in one body can increase, provided that the amount of disorder in its surroundings increases by a greater amount. This is what happens in a living being. One can define Life to be an ordered system that can sustain itself against the tendency to disorder, and can reproduce itself. That is, it can make similar, but independent, ordered systems. To do these things, the system must convert energy in some ordered form, like food, sunlight, or electric power,...

Face replacement in Nuke...

These are my notes from my nuke class with Damian Allen. Face replacement with Nuke 1. Left pics -> Source face, Right Pics -> Target face 2. Add Tracker node -> Put a tracker node on his chin’s jewel and two other trackers on his eye ends. How to run tracking Get one track on his chin’s jewel – The target is very clear so we can run tracking at once.    For tracking on man’s eye areas – The model is blinking between fr 38 to fr 55. Run tracking frame by frame till he blinks Use clear_fwd or clear_bkwd ( the top right corner ) to avoid the eye area. Hold command + grab the tracker box, move away from the eye area to the eyebrows. click clear_offset  move the track point back to current tracker position ( after he blinks) continue tracking, when he blinks, repeat it the same way. 3. I have made three tracks for the target face.   4. Create a Corner Pin2D Click to From in Corner Pin2D – copy the value from track1 ( Screen Lf eye ) to from4 – Tip:  select the track you want then put the curser to the right side bar, you see the curser changed to hand shape then drag and drop to the CornerPin2d “from4” in this case. copy rest of them.  When pairing up the Tracker with the CornerPin it is wise to ensure that the position of the Tracking points and the CornerPin points correspond with each other (default is anti-clockwise from bottom left).  I only create 3 tracks and we have 4 corners to fill. We need to add some expression on from 1 and from2 from1 x: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_x-50 Y: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_y from2 x: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_x+50 Y: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_y In the CornerPin from tab press copy to.

Foreground Compositing in Nuke...

Foreground Compositing in Nuke 1. Background and Foreground Images. Background : an actual scale, Foreground: 1:4 scale 2. Extract the green channel from the foreground. Add Grade node : It is easier to extract the green channel. Use a color picker to get values on the whitepoint and blackpoint on the grade node. Press this icon and you can grab a color from whatever is in your viewer. Following are so helpful keys commends. Command click in the viewer window to sample a pixel point within it. Command + Option will sample the color from the image before the current operation. If you don’t do this it will sample live from the viewer windows ‘’post adjustment’’. Shift combined with any combination of these key strokes will draw a marquee around a sample area. Beware: When you have finished with the color picker press it again to disengage it or it will continue to sample.  3.  Add KeyLight (I called this CoreKlight) node to extract the green channel. Get the screen color value and adjust the tuning. 4. Extract the rest of the foreground besides the stair. Add Grade, Erode (fast) and blur. For the RotoPaint ->I added a blur node / value 3 Then connect this to the Edge KeyLight Then add In node – The matte has been created. 5. Add Key mix to...

Questioning the Food We Eat...

Questioning the Food We Eat   This is my personal story of how looking at the food I eat has helped me to improve my health.  I am a computer animation artist working on movies and living in Los Angeles. I’ve been working pretty much non stop for the last 11 years in 3 different countries. Like most people, I’ve spent most of my time at work and on other “high” priority things in life.  And unfortunately, I wasn’t able to give much attention to my health. I generally didn’t have any serious problems with my health and I always felt that I was relevantly healthier than most. Therefore questioning what I eat everyday didn’t get my attention. Since I’ve left home, I’ve eaten whenever and whatever is available. Like most of people in modern society, we squeeze our meal times in during our working hours. I developed my own  way of my cooking. Whatever I eat should not take more than 15 min to prepare. It has to be quick to cook and also delicious. Because of this, most of the time, I just ate some kind of convenient food or pre-made food.  3 months ago, I finally had time to take a break from work. On my first day from not working in June 2013, my body wanted to get up at 7 AM as usual and get ready to go to work. My brain had to tell my body: “No work to go to today!”. How funny that the body remembers it’s daily routine. My high blood pressure pill The first thing I do in the morning is take my high blood pressure pill.  Obviously I had too much time to kill.
