  1. Diamond

    In mineralogy, diamond is a metastable allotrope of carbon, where the carbon atoms are arranged in a variation of the face-centered cubic crystal structure called a diamond lattice. Diamond is less stable than graphite, but the conversion rate from diamond to graphite is negligible at ambient conditions. Diamond is renowned as a material with superlative physical qualities, most of which originate from the strong covalent bonding between its atoms. In particular, diamond has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any bulk material. Those properties determine the major industrial application of diamond in cutting and polishing tools and the scientific applications in diamond knives and diamond anvil cells. Diamond has remarkable optical characteristics. Because of its extremely rigid lattice, it can be contaminated by very few types of impurities, such as boron and nitrogen. Combined with wide transparency, this results in the clear, colorless appearance of most natural diamonds. Small amounts of defects or impurities color diamond blue, yellow, brown, green, purple, pink, orange or red. Diamond also has relatively high optical dispersion, which results in its characteristic luster. Excellent optical and mechanical properties, notably unparalleled hardness and durability, make diamond the most popular gemstone.

You hold your figure, that is, your body as a voodoo doll of self-deception. There is also a secret room where disputes with oneself do not cease, there are such rooms as reality, dreams, dreams. All life is a children's toy of higher powers, it is very similar to a hamster cage with pipes of illusions, it is a karmic cage of ironic humor about materialism.

A powerful force of love for you comes from me. You are my true ideal of love, the rest are just insignificant clones of your ideal, since you are an example of true beauty, it is with you that I crave to be forever, since you are a priceless gift of all eternities and all universes. My love for you goes to infinity. 1. The highest level of awareness is the irony of sarcasm eats pride, insight in a crying laugh. 2. The dark side of the personality and its dark energy Each of us has his hidden negative side of the person, someone demonstrates it, someone hides it, but this is the part of us that is not us, but only a parody of us. This is what we seek to suppress in ourselves. We suppress egoism in ourselves and move to a new level of consciousness where we will not be alone. Since love is much better than loneliness in selfishness. Since it is precisely the main power of the dark side of the personality that is the manipulation of egoism. Of course, a person changes in his face and his eyes glow in his eyes because he does not see his own wine and what is happening. Such a person becomes blind in his head. False righteousness leads away from the truth. There are no bad people because we simply don’t realize what we are doing. A man is covered with dark energy, anger turning into black hatred. A person is tempted that only he is right so he gets an illusory superiority and his face is completely lost. The soul of such a person becomes black. A sense of rightness does not give him comfort, since evil will never have comfort, only hatred in the soul. It is impregnated with energy, turning into a certain entity and it is clear that it is contagious. Man, as it were, demonstrates pride. But often, as you probably noticed, such people left little of humanity in themselves. The dark energy of arrogant hatred destroys us from within and life is completely meaningless. This is not just reasoning, it is a pattern that surrounds us. Whereas love and forgiveness returns us the true form of self. 3. Fate is our subconscious, life as a repeating dream of the subconscious in a new rebirth. Memory is what guides us. 4. The body of an empathic or understanding person is as if encrusted with crystals that receive a static charge when connected to people and reality. 5. The body is a cocoon of illusions. Instincts are marketing manipulations on which they play as a musical instrument of egoism. From death, it crumbles revealing the soul, awareness and the third eye. 6. Loneliness as an early retirement. 7. Chaos is a great esthetician who accidentally generated the most beautiful landscapes of nature and the unique beauty of man. 8. Life is an ocean and many of us do not have gills and therefore we are gradually suffocating as we seek a way out in ourselves. 9. The cracks of reality are the cracks of the insight of the mind. 10. Holiness is the suspended animation of the mind, for awakening in a better place. 11. The stairs from the TVs are memories. It is very difficult to walk on it, because of guilt. You go through the plasma screen of the TV, through everything that was in your life. You understand to the depths of your soul, and it seems that you are starting to swim and get out of the other side of the screen leaving your body there, and the soul sees a new ladder up from the TVs. 12. Hardcore black humor Rap beat: Tam House, Tam House Tu Tutuk Ta Tam House, Tam House The hardcore black humor of reality is tearing the psyche of crazy laughter, billions of ridiculous laughter everywhere, overlooking everywhere. The power of awareness increases with laughter. Reason bursts at the seams with laughter, a new person is born. Evolution through the laughter of awareness. 1. How do genes work?

Love is energy as the main stream of universal energy, a heavenly feeling of sincerity of happiness. 8. Sultry blonde Sultry blonde. I feel hot feelings for you. Leather is like a gold diamond, gold-colored leather is a color of luxury that shimmers in a shade of white gold. The sexual magic of seduction in your skin color, shimmers with all the colors of seduction. Like the rays of the sun warming the body and soul. I feel intense heat in my body with lust and passion. Heart and subconsciousness calls you every day. Wow, how hot, super hot because of your special beauty. The soul is as beautiful as the body itself. When you are near I am in the dimension of endless love. Your beauty is prosaically embellished with reality. Author Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
