Ubermensch Day #21: Human OS
Polyphasic sleep: It seems like my body automatically wakes p after 8 hours of sleep. Apparently going to the gym and polyphasic sleep doesn’t go hand to hand, because the body NEEDS sleep to synthesize the muscles. However, I think I should still SLOWLY train myself to shave off the hours, maybe sleep for 6 hours then have a power nap.
Exercise: Woke up, ate a quick bowl of plain oat meals, and went to the gym. Shoulders and tricep day, the gym is ♥♥♥♥ing crowded. Saw an Asian chick admiring me, she shriveled her head 15 degrees as I approach her bike station, staring me down.
In the past 12 months, I have put roughly 192 hours into the gym. 192 hours is 8 days of continous lifting. I think it’s going to take another 2 years to reach my “ideal” body type. But even that is not a goal. The goal is going to the gym itself, a Zen like activity of just lifting the iron overhead like a deity, and putting it down.
Reading: Read 30 pages of “It’s not about the bike” by Neil Armstrong. (60/210 pages) I think he has ophelia complex because he keeps talking about his mom. Other then that, he mentions there is no short cuts in life, and everything worth earning is through experience and WORKING for. No magic pills to speak.
Learning foreign language: I’m very happy with my language progress so far. Why? Because I know, at this rate, I’ll be fluent in Korean in a 1 year, and 1/2 at most.
I tried learning Japanese 4 years ago and I didn’t progress much. Why? I didn’t understand progressive, incremental, habitual learning. I would learn for a day, then pick it up next week, then skip for 4 months, then tried to learn some Japanese.
Daily, incremental improvement has many names – “the 20 miles march” (From Good to Great book), “the slight edge effect (From Jeff Olson)”, “zen kai” (term coined by Japanese Honda company)
You know what I call it? Sit the ♥♥♥♥ down and get to work method.

Business: Using quantcast.com to do intelligence research on the competitor, then using SEMrush.com to reverse engineer their website. So basically I’m sitting back, OBSERVE how the websites are making money, and reverse engineering them. Putting up content and product offers that is very similar to them. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel. If there’s a shortcut to success, just copy what successful websites are doing.
The dead guy, Steve Jobs once said: “Good artists copy, and great artists steal”. And I’m “stealing” by reverse engineering. By the way, I don’t own any apple products, because their fan base – full of limp wrist nancy boys and hipsters – greatly distrubs me.
Ironically, I found an iphone 3, and an ipod classic (64 gigs) walking down the street. The less you want, the more it gives you – kinda like a good woman.
If you think about it, our reality is like an computer operating system. Some people have a virus in their mind and they’re ♥♥♥♥ing crippled. Like people with chronic depression, or irrational phobias … or being a hipster.
Some people FAIL to critically analyze and question the operating system that have been installed into their brains by their parents, teachers, and industrial tyacoons who want them to become obedient worker bees.
Take reading for example – IT’S AMAZING.
Book is the accumulation of mankind’s knowledge. Yet school makes reading so boring, that people refuse to pick up a book after their done college. Shakespare? Dry academic assertions written by a pedophile professor? Read a book and analyze how the pen is a symbolic representation for the repression of women’s rights? LOL.
