This is one of them, for Lieserl Einstein.

«When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.
I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.
There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us. This universal force is LOVE.

When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force. Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it. Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others. Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals. For love we live and die. Love is God and God is Love.
This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.

To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation. If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.
After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…

If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.

Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet.
However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.

When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life.

I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! “.

Your father,
Albert Einstein

An Amazing and Simple Way to assist the ocean cleanup http://idlife.no/an-amazing-and-simple-way-to-assist-the-ocean-cleanup/ Thu, 17 Dec 2015 15:01:40 +0000 http://idlife.no/?p=1004 Ocean pullution is a big problem. The new invention «Seabin» collect garbage in small scale.
The Seabin is located in the water and is fixed to a floating dock. There is a shore based water pump on the dock running on shore power. The water pump creates a flow of water into the bin bringing with it all floating rubbish and debris. The rubbish/debris is caught in a natural fibre catch bag and the water is then sucked out the bottom of the bin and up to the water pump where it is then pumped back into the marina.

Albert Einstein on The Meaning of Life http://idlife.no/albert-einstein-on-the-meaning-of-life/ Mon, 23 Nov 2015 17:39:06 +0000 http://idlife.no/?p=941 You might think the great physicist had a quantitative approach to live? Not after reading one of his famous quotes on the meaning of life:

«A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.»

Runners live longer http://idlife.no/runners-live-longer/ Mon, 23 Nov 2015 16:57:36 +0000 http://idlife.no/?p=795 riverrun

 

In a stydy of over 50 000 persons, the conclusion was that running significantly reduces the risk of dying from cardiovascular diseases.

According to the research, led by Iowa State assistant professor of kinesiology Dr. D.C. Lee, runners of all shapes and sizes had a 30 percent lower risk of death from all causes and a 45 percent lower risk of death from cardiovascular ailments. The researchers found that runners, on average, lived three years longer than nonrunners.

As concluded on their website: 

«During a mean follow-up of 15 years, 3,413 all-cause and 1,217 cardiovascular deaths occurred. Approximately 24% of adults participated in running in this population. Compared with nonrunners, runners had 30% and 45% lower adjusted risks of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, respectively, with a 3-year life expectancy benefit. In dose-response analyses, the mortality benefits in runners were similar across quintiles of running time, distance, frequency, amount, and speed, compared with nonrunners. Weekly running even <51 min, <6 miles, 1 to 2 times, <506 metabolic equivalent-minutes, or <6 miles/h was sufficient to reduce risk of mortality, compared with not running. In the analyses of change in running behaviors and mortality, persistent runners had the most significant benefits, with 29% and 50% lower risks of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, respectively, compared with never-runners.»

«Conclusions: Running, even 5 to 10 min/day and at slow speeds <6 miles/h, is associated with markedly reduced risks of death from all causes and cardiovascular disease. This study may motivate healthy but sedentary individuals to begin and continue running for substantial and attainable mortality benefits.»

It has been called The Best Avalanche Safety Video EVER http://idlife.no/it-has-been-called-the-best-avalanche-safety-video-ever/ Mon, 23 Nov 2015 15:26:41 +0000 http://idlife.no/?p=964 Out you go, one, two meters, and three. Then the whole mountain starts moving. Screendump from the movie.

KBYG … Know Before You Go.
Sometimes the snow looks dashing, so inviting – white, powdery, and you just cannot wait to go dancing down. But wait … this could also be the most dangerous thing you do. So many skiers have lost their lifes in such conditions.

Do you know when to back off and when it’s good to go? The Know Before You Go avalanche awareness program will get you started down the path of learning the language of the mountains and becoming a better and safer rider.

Creds to The Utah Avalanche Center who teemed up with the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, Avalanche Canada, Backcountry Access, the American Avalanche Association, the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education, the National Avalanche Center, Sherpas Cinema, Red Bull Media House, Brainfarm, and others to bring you this film. Go to kbyg.org for more information.

«It doesn’t matter if you have made thousands of good calls – all it takes is one bad call and that is one too many. Some days the mountains are screaming GET OUT OF HERE and some days they are saying come on in – it’s time to party.»

The Best Skitouring Destinations in Norway http://idlife.no/the-best-skitouring-destinations-in-norway/ Wed, 11 Nov 2015 19:59:18 +0000 http://idlife.no/?p=539 IMG_2239_lowrez

 

Planning to touch the Norwegian mountains? You should. They are as beautiful as you may have heard. Up from the fjords they reach towards the sky, violent when the weather is bad, religiously fantastic when the weather is good.

Most of Norway has good skitouring, but some destinations are worth mentioning over the others. Here they are three of them:

Jotunheimen and the areas around Sogndal
Voted the best city in Norway for people who love outdoor activities, Sogndal lies at the foot of Jotunheimen. You may have seen the movie Thor – this is where he lives. Skitouring in Jotunheimen you kan do until june, which makes it a loved destination in the spring. But also mid winter, the areas around Sogndal is fantastic. When the powder is pouring, go to Hodlekve skisenter and snagg the first rides. Later you put your skins on and go for one of the fantastic mountans up the valley. You are shure to find unspoild powder.

Romsdalen
In the middle of Norway lies the steepest wall in Europe; the Troll Wall. You may wonder; we have the ice giants in the Jotunheim … and what do we have in Romsdalen? Trolls. No wonder, when you watch the wall from the valley, it is monstrous, and some people get scared. The best thing is the mountains surrounding the wall, they are great for skitouring. And there is plenty of them! You will not regret going to Romsdalen. It was chosen as one of the three most beautiful tourist destinations in the world by National Geographics channel. Say no more.

Lofoten
In the north of Norway lies the Lofoten islands. Talking about to be chosen … the same fantastic channel chose Lofoten as one of the three most beautiful island groups in the world. You will not be disappointed here either. This may sound as a payed commercial, but it is not. I have been to Canada, the States, New Zealand … so many fantastic places, but old Norway always takes my breath away.
In Lofoten you start at sea level and walk to the top of the world, with the most fantastic view.
