On Monday, I looked at the concept of Infinity and noted some of the very real problems we have with the concept. But, if infinity is an irrational concept (a fact Aristotle pointed out thousands of years ago), why do we still employ it so frequently?
I think the problem of infinity can be expressed
(I had a lot on my mind this weekend, so I took a brief hiatus from Me Programming. Enjoy a speculative theory, instead.)
We have a problem with the concept of infinity, as it is mathematically defined: it is not finite. It's a question that has puzzled many a philosopher, and I wish to demonstrate
Why do bad things always happen to me?
I've got nothing worth living for, and nobody cares about me.
These are just some of the thoughts I never have anymore. These are the thoughts of the weak, the ungrateful, and the miserable. They are weak because they don't think to be strong; they are ungrateful
How often have we started something new - say, learning a language or an instrument - and given up when we hit some kind of plateau? Progress slows, and it becomes hard to see the value of further work. The result is a trail of broken self-promises.
One of the best ways I know
for(seconds=0; seconds<30; seconds++)
Think_Affirmation(I am strong and in control);
Many people look at the concept of power poses as pseudoscientific nonsense, in part because the Tedx people who speak of it aren't very convincing. However, when we consider how the body and the subconscious communicate with one another, we can see that consciously acting as though
for (days=1; days <= 30; days++)
for (i=0; i<30; i++)
Say(I am a happy person, and people enjoy spending time with happy people)
One of the common problems we have is negative
I've stated that the conscious mind is the primary center for input and output (as compared to the subconscious), and that is largely correct from a certain point of view. However, it's important to go into some more detail about how data information is filtered and processed before we go much further.
Security always implies a tradeoff: you sacrifice user convenience in exchange for security. In a computer system, we see this when a VPN is setting up a secure connection, because it often takes minutes to exchange and validate all the credentials passed back and forth in order to establish a secure key. We also
Before we can program a computer to achieve the maximum result, we have to understand the capabilities and design of the system. If you cannot understand registers and memory allocation, you cannot possibly maximize their utility. The same, I propose, is true of ourselves.
Subconscious and Conscious
We are all aware of the conscious mind. When
I'm fascinated with potential. When I am given a new task I'm focused on the potential of the idea. When I'm writing code I'm focused on the potential for reuse and maintentance. When I'm debugging I'm focused on the potential speed or functionality improvements I can create. It's all about drawing out maximum potential.
