In fact, he invented calculus at a rate at which you learn in freshman college.
I wrote a haiku
It doesn’t mean anything
Wait, does it have to?
I’ve been reading articles about the OPERA experiment conducted at CERN last year. The said experiment came up with results so amazing physicists around the world jumped out of their seats in shock and disbelief. OPERA researchers observed neutrinos apparently traveling faster than the speed of light.
I wanted to discuss this to one of my friends and he just asked me “What’s in it for us?” I got kinda sad, to be honest. But I digress, that’s a different story. Back to OPERA.
Okay, so OPERA researchers observed neutrinos apparently traveling faster than the speed of light . That’s really something. For starters, that could mean that Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity could be wrong.
The theory of relativity is the foundation of modern physics together with the quantum theory, and should it be in fact wrong, then time travelling might just be a matter of when. But that’s just one of the consequences of proving Einstein wrong. This also means that we need to re-calibrate and rethink everything, from the age of the universe, to the distance of the stars, down to the basic structure of modern electronics, like the GPS system, because we all know that GPS uses a relativistic system, meaning, its system relies on Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
But wait, GPS does work. Google, Foursquare, and lots of systems use it. GPS works and it has been working correctly for 95 years now. Even the OPERA researchers used GPS to measure the speed of neutrinos which makes it kinda paradoxical; they’re trying defeat relativity using relativity.
Unfortunately, however lovely it is to travel through time while yelling “Geronimo” (see Doctor Who), it’s still impossible. Just recently, the researchers at CERN found out that they made a mistake in calibrating the sensors while doing the experiment. They redid the experiment and found out that neutrinos we’re in fact consistent with the speed of light, thus, proving (again) that Einstein is still right and is still better than rest of us after all.
People always think they know other people, but they don’t. Maybe they have some knowledge about other people’s pet-peeves, taste in music, choice of books, favorite food, or most hated mathematical equation, but that’s just that. They still don’t know what these people do when they’re in solitude and the things that’s runs into their heads when they’re not talking. They have no idea why sometimes these people just look blank, feel sad, and screwed up for no apparent reason.
I am a book without a cover.
I am a knife without a handle.
Still, I provide information.
My blade still cuts.
I am a cloud without water.
I am a song without a singer.
Still, I give shade.
My tune, still in motion.
I am a smile without happiness.
I am a sun without light.
Still, I look delighted.
My warmth still comforts.
I guess I already am but I won’t be.
I guess I already did but I still cannot.
I guess no one can already be while still becoming.
For when you already have it all, you’ll be having no more.
On the RH issue, the [Catholic] Church hierarchy insists upon what it chooses to call morality, as if they have exclusive jurisdiction over morality. In the name of morality, the [Catholic] Church strongly opposes RH, thus inflicting upon the poor people undeserved and unnecessary suffering. In this aspect, the [Catholic] Church appears to be the opponent of progress and of improvement that would otherwise diminish suffering in the world. The [Catholic] Church chooses to label as morality a certain set of rules of conduct, which have nothing to do with human happiness.
Does the [Catholic] Church love and care for the Filipino poor? They are miserable because among other reasons, they have so many children. Without reproductive knowledge and information, the poor are just condemned to a vicious cycle of poverty, from generation to generation.
We reached the point where almost everything can be found on the internet, even relationships. We now have jet travels. We now know the fact that almost everyone (from different races) can have children. We have that situation today because of prosperity, industrial evolution, and international travels. Reasons why there’s mixing of the genes which can mean that the evolution of the entire species itself is probably slowing down. But does it mean that evolution has stopped?
People still prefer other people who are healthy. This means we’re still evolving towards being healthier and healthier people. There’s a reason why we’re attracted to certain people of the opposite sex. Evolutionary psychology states that people prefer healthy mates. Beauty in a way, according to some theories, is a way of judging how healthy a person is. Now, before I get tackled by philosophers from one side and ugly people from the other, let me explain.
Let’s say you’re on a bar one Friday night and you want to pick up someone rapidly, of course you can’t do a blood test or any sort of physical examination to find out how healthy a person is. So you look for markers. Again, according to evolutionary psychology, these markers are for estrogen and testosterone, and it’s shown in the body by beauty and physical health. For example: estrogen has certain markers such as large eyes, small chin, thick (pouty) lips. Same thing with testosterone, it has markers such as large necks, strong jaws, and low voice.
So the point I’m making is, evolution, on a one-to-one basis, is constantly taking place even as we speak. It is to say that, on a meta level, we still constantly prefer people who have better immune system, people who are physically fit, masquerading as what we call is “handsome” or “pretty”.
