My Gold Haired Girl

He shot an arrow into the air It landed far, he knew not where It flew beyond this tiny world Into the next one  Death unfurled  Through the heart of a little girl With skin soft and white as pearls Who's dress was stained blood red As her parents looked on  Struck by dread Seeing their  little girl             lying dead.  But Why! Said the weeping mother With pain and cries like no other She looked upon the sky above And said God, where is thy love? That was my little girl! With golden locks and little curls How dare you be so unfair To my baby With the golden hair! Not knowing her girl with the golden hair Was an Archer in another world In this one her golden haired girl.  She tore the arrow from her breast And shot it in the air, her best  She shot the arrow in the air It landed far she knew not where  For it flew with such swift might it’s flight was no match for sight.  It landed in the next next life  Into a man gentle frail and slight Never known a day of spite

On the Presence of Evil in a World of Good

Narcissus knelt daily beside a lake to contemplate his own beauty. He was so fascinated by himself that, one morning, he fell into the lake and drowned. At the spot where he fell, a flower was born, which was called the narcissus. When Narcissus died, the goddesses of the forest appeared and found the lake, which had been fresh water, transformed into a lake of salty tears. “ Why do you weep ?” the goddesses asked. “ I weep for Narcissus ,” the lake replied. " Ah, it is no surprise that you weep for Narcissus ,” they said, “ for though we always pursued him in the forest, you alone could contemplate his beauty close at hand.” “But…was Narcissus beautiful?” the lake asked. “Who better than you to know that?” the goddesses said in wonder. “ After all, it was by your banks that he knelt each day to contemplate himself!” The lake was silent for some time. Finally, it said: “ I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful." “I weep because, each

Hume & Kant by the Fire

​ ​ Kant: “ Ahem , a Word with you please Mr. Hume In my mind your ideas loom I’m scared and filled with sorrow Will Sun will rise tomorrow? You speak of social utility  Oh don’t you see the futility.  For if tomorrow your wife no longer needs you? What’s for dinner, Hume Stew ?” Hume: “ You know you’re literally a Kant right? Must be a such a shame to live with an unfortunate name...” 

Solve Any Problem Using this One Chart of all of History

It’s all been done, there’s nothing new under the sun.  This is a problem solving technique that has worked for me when thinking through problems creatively.  Below is every major civilisation in History. Most were destroyed by natural disasters or completely unpredictable outside forces. In general, they did more things right than they did wrong to survive many hundreds or thousands of years to become the pinnacle of their era and geography.  Pick 3 civilisations from East to West across any timeline.  YouTube a 10-min documentary from the History Channel. I recommend watching YouTube on 2x with Closed Captioning on. It takes a few minutes to get used to but once you’re over the hump you’ll be fine.  It’ll take you about 30 mins to watch the mini-documentaries.  (You’ve got the answer to your problem in your brain, you just don’t know it yet.) Put on a timer for 20 mins (30 if you’re cool) close your eyes and listen to the video here (don’t forget to put YouTube back to regular speed)

YOU can use IBM’s Quantum Computer for Free

​ Fraunhofer is monetizing Quantum Computing by getting free time on IBM's Quantum Computer cloud platform and reselling it packaged with education. (Interesting fact, the QC Processor is kept in a dilution chamber at 0.15 Kelvin. Space is 4 Kelvin, so several factors colder than space, but several factors warmer than Putin's heart) They already have 180 partners with 40 startups with use cases in cryptography, simulations of biological ecosystems like protein folding, prediction algorithms such as war games, financial markets etc. Some like Fraunhofer are nodes that redistribute and bring in more players into the ecosystem. Aparna Prabhakar who works out of California is in charge of their partnerships such as the one with Fraunhofer.  They also have a partnership with the govt of Japan to study four areas: 1. Research & Development in Japan of Quantum as a strategic indust

The Duty and Responsibilities of the Indian who Can: based on “True Manliness” by James F. Clarke

​ True manliness is humane. It says, “we who are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak.  It’s work is to protect those who cannot defend themselves; to stand between the tyrant and the slave, the oppressor and his victim.  It is identical in all times with the spirit of chivalry which led the good knights to wander in search of robbers, giants, and tyrannical lords. Those who oppressed the poor and robbed helpless woman and orphans of their rights. There are no tyrant barons now, but the spirit of tyranny and cruelty is still to be found. The good knight today is he who provides help for the blind, the deaf and dumb, and the insane. Who defends animals from being cruelly treated, rescues little children from bad usage, and seeks to give working woman their rights. He protects all these sufferers from that false manliness which is brutal to weak. The true knights today are those who organize to prevent cruelty or to enforce laws against those who for a little gain make men dr

We are part Angel part animal

A little Sunday theological philosophy Humans are a combination of animal and angel, shaked not stirred Eden, as I understand was on a mountain. While it doesn't explicitly say so in the bible, since there was a river flowing down that then split into four it must have topographically been an elevated place, a midpoint between heaven and earth. Part of the beauty of being human is the hybrid nature we posses. While we're part of the animal kingdom, but there's a quantum leap between (most of) us and animals.  God gave angels wings to float down, when we need a gentle little hand. And on what else could angels float but Rauch Adorai, the divine breath of God, the same breath that gave us life. And if we were communing with angels, would not some of the breath of God blow onto us as well. And if God is the infinite, wouldn't the strength of his breath intertwine the angel floating on his breath and the human. Wouldn't the gentle strength of his divine breath blow a li
