What is "Continuity"?

The usual definition of "continuity" describes something that continues from the past into the present and so on into the future. The Universe, for example, has continuity under this definition -- the universe came into being over 13 billion years ago, it is here now and there is little doubt but that it will be here tomorrow.



But to consider continuity in this conventional way -- as a carry-over from the past -- is to misunderstand "continuity." There is no "past" to carry over, and… Continue

One has to determine about oneself whether to continue under psychology or move beyond .

One has to determine whether to be under psychological constraints or move beyond them , because if one is in the psychological fields one is under great sorrow.But by meditation one surpasses the psychological turmoils.

Einstein's Dreams

Recently I was reading this book. It is a fictional book by Alan Lightman. It presents a series of dreams of fictional Einstein while he was working on his theory of relativity. The concept of 'Time' forms the core concept of book. In Einstein's  dreams, 'Time' works differently (like moving backward, forward, slower, faster etc). 

Interestingly, we experience different worlds while reading this book. The reason for me sharing this book here is because it plays with our way of…

The parable of the Madman

THE MADMAN----Have you not heard of that madman who lit a lantern in the bright morning hours, ran to the market place, and cried incessantly: "I seek God! I seek God!"---As many of those who did not believe in God were standing around just then, he provoked much laughter. Has he got lost? asked one. Did he lose his way like a child? asked another. Or is he hiding? Is he afraid of us? Has he gone on a voyage? Emigrated?---Thus they yelled and laughed

The madman jumped into…

The dark skies over Club .Ning are clearing....

The dark skies hovering over club .ning are clearing up. X has received an OK to leave the campgrounds and hit the road to nowhere and breathe some fresh air. He is leaving after contributing some more ashes to the mountains.  Let’s all eat drink and be merry. Let’s once more direct that malice and hate to each other since the unifying object that unified us in our hate is gone. Let’s resume tearing each other apart, the self-justifications, the rationalizations….

What happened to Si?

Is he trapped in the 'Apple frenzy' with the next week's unveiling of their new iPhone 8(possibly, because this is an 'S year', so there might be only a 7S and a 7S plus next week, and possibly shortly afterward the anniversary edition, the 8 model?



Is he crunching the numbers to get iOS 11 ready, by working on the iOS 11 Public Beta 10 (the Beta 9 has just been released) ?



Or is he working to find a solution to the heat dissipation problem which may be an issue with the… Continue

    Quantum Choice 7 Replies

    The theory of quantum mechanics earned its stripes by making accurate predictions concerning the behavior of atoms and the tiny particles that make them up. No one quite understands what quantum mechanics means, but it works. That’s its appeal, and so it’s understandable that researchers in other fields might want to borrow the insights of quantum mechanics. Enter “quantum cognition,” a new theory which suggests that the mathematical principles behind quantum mechanics could be used to better…Continue
