"Liver is also associated with anger. And, since unfortunately that's the most culturally accepted emotion for men to access..."

No disrespect or antagonism etc. but:

I find that a very strange remark on several levels not least of which is:

it is no longer culturally acceptable for men to get angry as far as I can tell, at least in developed West. In fact, the opposite.

Meanwhile, women seem to get angry just as much, if not more, and it is not regarded as remarkable at all, i.e. angry mother at children, angry wife at husband, angry woman at male-dominated society.

Don't get me wrong: speaking as a bona fide male your remark has not made me angry, but... I am not sure I am 'buying'.

sefstrat: that sounds like quite an interesting body-mind setup you have! Diagnosis is simple albeit not helpful: clearly you come from a different planet on a different cycle and are not yet used to earth time. Give it a few more lives and you'll be fine!

Time is inherently limited, I surrender only to the limitless..

wow! I would not have intentionally opened that particular can of worms, for sure.

Just another thought on sleeping... and water: dehydration often leads to feelings of fatigue, which often prompts a person to eat -- which then, sometimes, (if eating late) can cause insomnia. So, again your emphasis on drinking enough water is a good one.

Remove any obvious causes of insomnia: tea, coffee, TV in the evening, etc.. Take a hot bath with the essence of one plant from the following list :
Of course, these plants are taken as an infusion, or friction of essential oil on the skin. One of these plants is enough to make you sleep well like a baby.
 
you may google them to learn more , I managed to give the latin word for each

Linden (Tilia sylvestris), flowers and leaves This one is very good ( we give it to agitated babies ) very safe

Ballotta fetid (Ballotta foetida), flowers
Hawthorn (Crataegus oxyacantha), flowers
Wild thyme (Thymus serpyllum), flowering
Sweet Clover (Me \ ï \ otus officinalis), dried flowers
Passionflower (Passiflora incamata), leaves and flowers
Marjoram (Origanum majorana), flowering
Woodruff (Asperu ^ odorata), flowering
Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus comiculatus), flowers
Poppy (Papaver rhoeas), flowers
Hops (Humulus lupulus) cones
Jasmin (Jasminus officinale) flowers
Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) leaf juice
Water lily (Nymphea lutea), flowers
Flowers orange (Citrus aurantium and Citrus vulgaris)
Primrose (Primula officinalis). flowers and roots:
Willow (Salix alba), buds and leaves
Vélériane (Valeriana officinalis) roots. From this, do not abuse it.
I strongly advise taking herbal teas than supplements , the herbal tea acts faster and taken before bedtime , will do the trick even better .

I wish you all happy sleeping
Cheers

there are five main types of energy/dynamic in daoist system/metaphysics too subtle and complex to get into on a single forum post.

Do you recommend any particular references on this subject? I've done some study (not very deep I'm afraid) with the western 4-element system (leaving out "spirit"), but am not familiar at all with the 5-element eastern one.



Quoting 
Actually, for a while I was trying to come up with a 5-energy trading method in which each component recorded only 1 main energy.

You know, there was a time I was playing with a qabalistic indicator that tried to characterize market conditions in terms of their 10 sephirot. I dropped that effort after a while, but want to get back to it one day. Metaphorical systems of yore are more in-tune with the way the mind wants to work, I think. So, there can be some value in translating phenomena into those frameworks, though that's difficult for computers to do.

If you want to try a herbal product, look into 5-HTP (Wikipedia it, I can't post the URL). It's relatively safe and works wonders for me. When I want to get a good night's rest, I take anywhere from 50 to 100mg and within 45 minutes, I'll be sleeping like a baby. You'll have some crazy vivid dreams on this stuff too, as the active ingredient in 5-HTP releases serotonin in your body. You can find it at any herbal/natural foods store.

So, there can be some value in translating phenomena into those frameworks, though that's difficult for computers to do.

Should be fine for computers if you can find measurable functions/values to define. For example:

if speed is increasing (one value easy for computer hard for live intellect) &
high > high[1] (price level compared with past) &
volume buys > volume sells &
cycles are in line &
average swing range > ATR *3

then buy.

So the five would be speed, price level direction, volume condition, timing condition, market range condition.

That is five, but not really in line with the 5 daoist energies. But I have not put enough thought into it. They are definitely there since they are everywhere.

Also, it's not a metaphysical system per se alone since its principles are used in both diagnosis and treatment, whether reading a heartbeat on the wrist, listening to voice, categorising imbalance/disease/balance symptoms, categorising meridian flows and needle combinations, categorising properties of herbs, categorising properties of combination of herbs, categorising effects particular needles/herb combinations with particular mix of symptoms/conditions. So it is both metaphysical and scientific, albeit using a noetic-based form of science which is currently verboten in the west the past century or so. It'll come back and when east meets west that way the boom in technology will be like nothing ever seen before. Assuming there are still sufficient humans around to appreciate such things!

Some sugar is worse than others

Just a few remarks to throw into the mix. In the Chinese medical tradition (which I studied quite a bit a decade ago and which is fascinating) the most important organ for sleep is the liver. In modern terms, a tidbit here is that something like 70% of the blood in the body goes down into the liver during deep sleep where it is processed/filtered/rejuvenates etc. (Don't quote me on the % number, but it is high.)
.

Regarding the liver, it is very adversely affected by the fructose in high fructose corn syrup. The metabolic pathways for fructose are almost identical to those of ethanol, and the damage caused, including fatty deposition within the liver is similar. So cut out the sugary crap, and especially the engineered "foods" sweetened with HFCS. There is an excellent presentation by Dr. Robert Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics, Div of Endocrinology UCSF. See it online at UCTV or on Youtube at:

Think about that the next time you guzzle a Coke®.

I've had some trouble sleeping lately, and according to my Dr., if you're snoring, you're not sleeping well. To stop the snoring, I sleep with a chin strap on. It looks awful, but it works - I sleep better wearing it. Just a thought.
