o my god what am i writing!

now you will know what random thoughts really mean :)

Lets recreate human civilization….

Lets start with any one idea…say scientific…so man evolved from apes undergoing many steps of evolution and in the course gained many of his abilities and nature.finally just before entering into the humans domain he was an ape.lets study how was his nature by then…he was living for food and food made him live but he was also doing a function for nature .
unknowingly he was taking the living life form to become something that would be called humans..how he did it..he learned somethings in life ..some good ,some bad..good in the sense which made him survive …bad which made him lose on his life…(the things were of course relative i.e. things that were good for some became bad for some)…but nature had only one idea in her mind she had to make the best possible individual at the end of evolution. She did this by a process of elimination…which she managed very simply by limiting the resources.she always maintained
the resources to a level were a few of the living creatures could survive and the others got eliminated.

now lets see how nature worked for her purpose of making the best possible individual.

Lets see it through analogies.
Say what would we do if we are given a task to make a best living creature .lets make it simpler for ourselves ..what if the task is to make a best anything say pen..what we do…

we would try to find the basic structure of the pen by knowing its purpose.pen to write …best living creature to …..i don’t know.may be we are in a stage in the evolution which is below the threshold value..once this is crossed nature will tell us our purpose….or may be we ourselves will have to reach that level.

so first we will give it a structure…say the basic structure is nature…nature is the basic essence of a pen which can never change…(I will add something about compatibility here)
so we have made the nature..it is the basic structure but we have to make the best pen so we need a mechanism so that it can improve,without the pen knowing that we are making a best pen because then it will start inquiring about the purpose which is the last step and should not be rushed through.

also we should have a mechanism by which we can know the progress ..so that once our critical limit is crossed the living being in its present form can be delivered…suppose that in the world of god….he has many customers or clients and he has to supply them with individual creatures which could solve their purpose so god has set critical marks for each clients requirement.he will deliver the product as soon as the evolution reaches this limit…he has many clients.so many that each person who dies is a sign of one customer being delivered his product.

when the critical level is crossed the person suitable for the client among a wide variety is transported out of the system and this is commonly called in the system as being dead…because he loses life..(life being the mechanisms at work.)

okay so after making nature what next
· a mechanism to propagate through the journey of evolution.
· A mechanism by which the current status of the level of the creatures can be known.

here is where we need to be innovative..
this mechanism can be made in this way.first make a mechanism to generate random pens …that all having different sets of properties.now make them pass through a series of tests and find the pen you need and then if there is no job pending with a requirement of a critical value less than what it is at that time, then let the creatures less than that critical value to lie there performing the same tests again and again,till they are able to pass them..and regularly show them to the cheap customers if they like some …and give the higher individuals a different set of tests.

the critical point is the measure of capability of a particular mass of individuals but while implementing this in the mechanism it becomes the amount of resources available for an individual – the amount which he feels is needed for him to survive .this has a curious connection with and so is named happiness inside the mechanism…outside it is known as satisfaction.actually there are many clients waiting for an individual who has a satisfaction level as high that he himself will know that happiness is the other word for satisfaction.he will be the ultimate…there are no clients with the requirement of the satisfaction level higher than this individual.they like to call him _____.

now how to create random individuals ..if one individual gives birth to another individual and also raises him, he will have the same properties as this individual .if one individual gives birth and other raises him ..yes this can be done..or still better one individual giving birth to a person and no one raising it.it just survives its own way with nature helping it to a certain level and then the way it handles the tests and the results he gets makes it a completely diff person than his only parent..(asexual reproduction)
but a better still way is to give them a test in which they have to find other person with exactly the opposite characteristics to them..(this point is imp. Mind it exactly opposite )they simultaneously contribute to the generation of a new life form and this is how random properties of both the individuals get into this new individual and the new individual is such the no individual with the properties exactly same as his has never walked,or crawled ,or hopped on this planet.so he is unique.it is believed that ________ will be born out of parents which will have all the characteristics exactly opposite.each coming generation is better able to cope with the tests than the previous generation because (using probability it can be shown that if we mix two sets of properties we get a set of properties better than both the sets…because it takes better prop. Which are recently evolved.)

how to ensure that the rate of improvement is consistent. for this there is a method -whenever there is a drop in the level of evolution (because though the individuals feel that the way to happiness is the way to satisfaction..it is not always so)…slower speed of betterment…(darkness)..it is a time for avatars to come in ..now avatar is the god peoples image of the ____.they think it would be like …some image and properties they come up with so they send this image to the system..of course it has some characteristics that distinguish it from this system because after all it is not a product of this system…but other than that it is a certain level of satisfaction which reflects as happiness in this system in this avatar which makes him famous and the way he tackles test become famous and so people try to be like him or to achieve satisfaction by his mean. so the purpose of the gods is solved.

A beginners' guide to

Read the article only if you can spend some time (at least twice the time required for reading the article !!) and mind on it. Yes and one more thing - just ignore the exclamation marks for once, i have a knack of putting them!!!

Computer, as we know is a very complicated thing and this is the reason why the people who don't know anything about it panic that they are so ignorant, whereas the ones who know even a little about it are very well respected in the society.

So to start with-
  • The computer consists mainly of two parts the hardware and the software.
  • The hardware consists of complex physical components, each complex within itself (to any microscopic level you go) and each also complex in the way it is linked to others!!!
  • They are so complex that a single person can hardly study every detail of them.
  • Talking of hardware, it is worth knowing that the hardwares improve so fast that when the newer version or the improved version comes, the older version has to go and so it slowly disappears and becomes extinct.
Survival of the fittest i may say!!!
  • A more important part- the operating system (a software) is the guiding force or the one which makes the hardware know what to do... if we put it in a crude form.

Actually the operating system is the medium through which the Operator controls the overall hardware!!!!

  • The Operator gives instruction in a higher base (10) but the hardware ,(because of the way it is constructed and also because it cannot handle the higher base ),gets the information in a lower base (2)!!!
  • Even in operating systems many different ones are available .

They are always competing for survival!!!

  • It is generally the construction of the hardware which decides with which software is it more compatible.
  • One more point of interest here -Without the operating system(s) ,the hardware does not know what it is made for and so it gets involved in functions which are not for it to do..many of the hardwares face this problem, such are called lower hardwares .So the operating system is as important for the hardware as is the Operator.

So far so boring , i agree.
Next Step..

Just change the words from:

  • computer to life
  • hardware to life forms
  • operating system to religion
  • base to dimension

reread the article...

now you know the exclamations!!

Bent according to convenience!

again not thought enough about this but will write soon!

The blunt conscience!

will write about it soon!

freaks and phantoms!

See, wise men have told time and again (yes they have and if you haven't heard it you are in the same soup as i am in) that we should not read two books at a time. the following is what happens if you do so.

I have a white covered book showing a picture of an orange peeled artistically and with one piece taken out and boldly reads FREAKONOMICS! and a dark black book showing the photo of a brain at exactly the same location as the orange and it again in the same font but even bolder reads PHANTOMS IN THE BRAIN ( now seriously am i a freak to read such books!)

Freakonomics is written by an economist Steven Levitt and he is the one who thinks that economics is really not about money at all. Even its father Adam Smith when wrote the first book on economics it was called the theory of human sentiments !

Mr. ramachandran ,a neurologist who has lost all interest in conventional theories of neurology and is an explorer in the real sense of the word, receives and talks about patients who feel pain in the arm which was amputed years ago because he feels he has hit the door with it, or a woman who can't control laughter and dies laughing, or a person who has such a big blind spot that she sees bugs bunny sitting at your side when she is talking to you. And if you are astonished by the patients alone, wait till you read his treatments.

And then there is Mr. Levitt who being an economist asks questions like which is more dangerous -a gun or a swimming pool? or what is common between a school teacher and sumo wrestlers? or even how do parents really matter?

now coming back to my reading them together.
is that why i find both the writers having a similar passion for their profession?
a similar hatred for the conventional thoughts? do you also think so?

please comment and let us take this discussion further.
