All can know good as good only because there is evil.
Therefore having and not having arise together.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short contrast each other:
High and low rest upon each other;
Voice and sound harmonize each other;
Front and back follow one another.
Therefore the sage goes about doing nothing, teaching no-talking.
The ten thousand things rise and fall without cease,
Creating, yet not possessing.
Working, yet not taking credit.
Work is done, then forgotten.
Therefore it lasts forever."
Tao Te Ching ~ chapter 2
Hi, i'm ~shrtkv, a senior interaction designer @ south america, over a decade working at disciplines from the UXd field as information architecture, user interface and front-page dev ; prototyping, research and user testing; and also some strategic projects of business and service design. My lab you can find lots of electronic components, wires, arduino & other microcontroller, pens & pencils, circuit chaos and unfinished interactive AV experiments and ideas on Max/MSP/Jitter, processing and pureData...and plants. A lot of them.
I enjoy gardening and etnobotany; astrophysics, religions, meditation and neurology; data safety and p r i v 4 c y discussions; and studying new interactive approaches & techs at arts, assistive devices and health care.

Let the mind become still.
The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish and then return to the source.
Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature.
The way of nature is unchanging.
Knowing constancy is insight.
Not knowing constancy leads to disaster.
Knowing constancy, the mind is open.
With an open mind, you will be openhearted.
Being openhearted, you will act royally.
Being royal, you will attain the divine.
Being divine, you will be at one with the Tao.
Being at one with the Tao is eternal.
And though the body dies, the Tao will never pass away.
