Kokology: Game of Self Discovery

Kokology is the study of kokoro (Japanese: 心) which in the aforementioned language means “mind” or “spirit”.

I just finish reading these books (there are 2 books and I read both). And I think this book is awesome. I didn’t get bored since full of psychological questions that I need to answer then when I read the answer I discover my own personality.

This is the example:
We watch scary movie sometime, which one of these is the scariest one?
1. Crazy woman who want to take revenge and kill all person whom she hates
2. The big sunk ship with passengers trapped in the middle of ocean
3. The psychopath who kill his target randomly
4. Aliens invasion

The scary movie that we want to watch actually describe our personal fear that we encounter in daily life
If your answer:

1. You are afraid with social life. it’s very hard to believe someone around you. It’s not wrong, we all know that this world is really complex and we need to be considered in choosing our friends. And sometime you want to be alone.

2. You are afraid that the perfect world will get into end. But yes surely world is not perfect, so don’t be too much afraid of it and enjoy every condition, although it is not perfect.

3. This one contradict with option no 1, you are afraid to lose your friend. You are afraid to be alone, it’s probably because you too much depend on your friend, so you are afraid to be independent. But you must reach this independent level someday.

4. You afraid people lose trust on you. It’s not easy to gain trust but to lose it, it’s easier than draw a line. You work very hard to make everything perfect so people can count on you. After all you just need to do your best, doesn’t mean that you should always be the best.

Medical Equipment I Ever Try

Not very proud about it but it will give me memory to stay health in the future.

1. X-Ray: Dental
I use it for several reasons: dental neuron network check, preparation of dental surgery

2. X-Ray: Body
First use it after accident to check fracture on my hand, and then it’s also included in medical check up to generate work permit and lastly use it to detect neuron network on near neck-bones

3. Audiology Room
This check places you inside the soundproof room and give you very soft sound with different frequencies. You then need to reply if you hear the sound

4. Ultrasonography (USG)
Well it’s often used for pregnant mother, but it’s also use to check kidney. I use it as part of medical check up.

5. Blood Pressure Tool
I still use the old-fashion one, with somebody need to use stethoscope to check.

6. Cardiovascular Treadmill
I think it tends to check the max capability of heart rate.

7. Spiromety
It’s used to measure how fast and how much air you can breath

8. Eye Test
I’m used to conventional eye chart and also high-tech check up

9. Blood and Urine Laboratory
It checks many things: Cholesterol, blood sugar, positive or negative of kind of disease, etc

10. CT (Computer Tomography) Scan
It’s almost same with X-Ray but it scans 360 degree of your body. I recently use it to detect any injuries in my brain, fortunately my brain is normal

11. Ultrasound Therapy
It’s almost like USG, but if USG only for detecting purpose, this Ultrasound Therapy give special effect to brain relaxation.

12. TENS (Trans-cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
It’s said to be able to give muscle relaxation.

13. Microwave Therapy
For blood current stabilization.

Well I think that’s all. I will update if there is any more I ever use.
PS. I am not the model of each photograph (sure some model are women and old men, and I am still young man :D)

Higurashi When They Cry – BGMs

Several moments ago I read sound novel titled “Higurashi When They Cry”

Sound Novel: A novel that is read but has background sound effect.

Higurashi When They Cry

I think this book is very good, it’s thrilling, touching and even make the reader get into the character feeling. For review find it on:

I think one of the most popular BGM (Background Music) is “Dear You” and it has so many version:

1. Slow version, not the best one, just show the variant

2. Normal version (piano), it’s the simplest, the easiest to remember

3. Cheer version, it’s like you wake up in the morning with very good feeling

4. Fast version, it’s surely energizing

5. Music Box version, well it just side music I think 🙂

6. Singer version, means that there are singers who sing this song (I have youtube link for it), the music arrangement is also unique and enjoyable to hear

The other BGM that I think really touching is “Birth & Death” (around minute 01:39 – 02:15)

Sound Novels

Also the good ending BGM (I think only 1 chapter that can be defined as good ending although it also not very good since everybody still death, ups spoiler ^^)

But I prefer the singer version below, especially when you hear Higurashi’s cry as part of musical instrument. For me it’s like amazing as well as chilling.
