Balanced, or Exciting?

Balanced thoughts are rare to come by. A lot of humans are busy making a life for themselves, pleading ignorance towards their interaction with other human beings and towards the effects of their actions on everyone and everything involved. We relate our stories to other people’s to gain confidence about our own choices, good or bad, and by doing this, a lot of times, we stretch our conscience along the way. E.g. if a sibling broke a glass cup in anger, and the other sibling, just trying to pacify, states that this is alright and that glass cups keep breaking all the time, then this subconsciously or consciously creates a defense mechanism in the mind to defend the action to his/ her conscious and subconscious realm, and move on with the thought that it is alright to break glass cups in anger. Although breaking a glass cup is not something to grind your sibling for, but isn’t “why are you angry?” after the initial pacifism theme a great choice of response? We can use the analogical sense of this example to our everyday activities and easily observe that our conscious has stretched itself with respect to the basic necessities of our life, that our mind dynamically handles through the thick and thin. Excitement is a very satisfying and energetic moment, but Balance is vital for the infinite nature of time. Balance is what teaches us about the effects of our doings on our immediate and far-away environment and everything that entails. Our life consists of many exciting, and mundane moments, but Balance is for the long run of consciousness in this life. Ignorance is Bliss, I agree, but knowledge is power, and consistently updating it might stretch our consciousness towards balance.
P.S – it is also good to walk away from a moment that is unclear of its own problem objective. Not every fight is your own! Perception, to each it’s own!

The Perceptionist

It smells like a fire, a burning desire, dehydrating my soul constantly.

To Exist, or not to!

To Perceive, or not to!

Choices, they are an amalgamation of thoughts and experiences put to a test.

I Choose to Perceive and Exist, most of the times.

It Opens up the Soul next to me, and let’s me sip the Aura little by little.

Murphy’s Law

Edward Aloysius Murphy Jr. was an American aerospace engineer who worked on safety-critical systems. He once said “If there’s more than one way to do a job, and one of those ways will result in a disaster, then somebody will do it that way” working at Wright-Patterson Air-force base in late 1940’s, which later was popularized as Murphy’s law. He spent his life working to increase reliability and safety to prevent human error. Overall, it is statement of caution, to prepare yourself for the worst, when the best is expected.

Strangely enough, I noticed that people from both lazy-pessimistic and active-optimistic lifestyles use this quote in their own way. “What has to go wrong will go wrong anyways! Why care about it?” and “If there is something that will go wrong, we need to account for it and at least understand it!” are the most extreme thought examples to support my theory. To the core of its strangeness, human society has remained tolerant of some weird thoughts, but more importantly extremely silent about them as well. The society reveals what it shows, but believes what it does not. So, Murphy’s law might be unknown to some of you, because it is just a saying with no proof, but since the bigger chunk of population is stuck with the 9-5 grind, so Murphy’s law is synonymous with unknown glitches with any kind of work. Ultimately, quoting Murphy’s Law becomes the verbal hunter of all the nervous feelings of unknown failure to shove them deep inside and never to reveal. It makes us believe that the universe a.k.a. nature is out there to get us, so we should not fuss over something that was out of our control and try to learn from it. When I stumbled upon a cool proof recently, I had to write about it.

The most common story capturing Murphy’s subtle rant is of the tumbling of a toast with butter on one side that tumbles down to the floor. It is believed that it always falls butter side down. The toast when tumbles, somehow always falls in the worst condition possible. Robert A J Matthews, who was a visiting professor at Aston University in Birmingham U.K., in 1995, wrote a paper on the proof that the tumbling toast does fall butter down every time. He did this by proving that the dynamics of the toast with butter on one side while it is falling from the table always make it fall butter down. Robert Matthews now works as a consultant in Science and Media across the whole world.

Interestingly, he further goes on to prove in this paper that nature’s or universe’s fundamental constants (like height of an average table from where the toast can tumble which is dependent of average human height) are somehow helping the toast to fall butter down and proving the ‘innate cussedness of the universe’. But the important take away is that as humans, we are supposed to be intelligent enough to not to keep cursing the Universe and find a solution to the problem.

This is for everyone who thinks that the world out there is to get you. This paper, if extrapolated to other human situations, might prove that the world is really out there to get you! But, as humans, we like to stay on top of our life. Ultimately this tussle with the fundamental universe’s constants becomes life! or one may preach ‘ignorance is bliss’ and let the toast fall butter down with not a care! To each his own!

P.S. Nietzsche, a German Philosopher, believed that Struggle is the essence of life. If you are not struggling with something, then you are either on a break, or doing something wrong.

Tumbling Toast Proof

 

Thoughts linger in the cold emptiness of the jungle of memories,
This illumination is a discourse of a bag of emotions run by the myriad colors of the memories in focus,
Tears fall across the subliminal lines of a smile on the caricature of facial skin,
Mixed emotions, but no regrets!
Pure Nostalgia!

Compromise, Maybe!

The length of the rope, which on one end has a stack of hope and the dark realm on the other, decides how long the balancing act is going to last.
You do not remember exactly how you came this far with the longevity of balancing act, but you have been trying to balance it out at the extreme ends of the rope.
Your lows are too low and highs, too high.
The faith goes from dark to bright to grey to black to white to a rainbow.
The extremities cause the demise of the master, every single time.
A master, everybody seeks. And a master, everyone else is.
The master of conversation, the master of relaxation, the master of reclusion, the master of inheritance, the master of the respect, the master of the shame, the master of love, the master of lust, the master of elusiveness, the master of time……
And then they have a magnetic force field. If in this lifetime, you figured out that following and being followed are both ends of the same rope, you will probably like to be at the centre for the balancing act.
Being an extremist, a non-quitter and a stubborn buffoon makes you do the same thing over a thousand times only to lose to the system every single time and plan again and go again.
And then you start to multitask and there are a thousand loops of code running at the same time and you want every single one to converge.
And then they lose you and you lose them. Then you lose yourself.
There is another way of getting around, bending it a little, and bending yourself a little.
Compromise, Maybe.
You got to have the bigger piece in your plate though; and then you truly lose, to yourself!

Life Analogies

The confusion was as bewildered as the mid life crisis
The fear was as scary as a mother with menopause
The sorrow was as gloomy as every Sunday evening
The light was as bright as the pre death hallucination,
The violence was as bloody as the first period in a girl’s life,
The darkness was as blinding as the sun directly glaring into the eyes,
The chaos was as organized as Nature or God’s work !

Daily Prompt

AGILE

You are Agile until someone deciphers your technique, puts it in a process and delivers to the highest bidder. Then, you are just a competitor to everyone who bought your process.

e.g. Facebook bought Instagram

So rich people win, even with a little bit of wit. Unless you open source it, then it is in the hands of all humanity to use and come out with an even better version.

e.g. Tesla open sources all of its patents to be used in good faith.

However, you are scared that it will fall into the hands of the evil! Nevertheless, Evil can be rich and can bid for it too! What it needs is a filter; a filter to filter out the evil!

But, have you defined your evil yet?

Or are you even Agile yet?

e.g. YOU!

Loopholes

Almost everyone likes the short cut available with no legal, mental, physical or societal hassles! But, no short-cut ever created a loophole so clean that all these categories were satisfied and your conscious did not flex out even a little bit to accommodate any consequence whatsoever! Every one flexes their conscious to find loopholes or short cuts in real life. It is because everyone wants to make the most of everything in their lives. The consumer has so much knowledge at hand through the modern virtual God – Google and its numerous other deities online which help us with daily dose of loopholes to move around faster and quicker without the legal hassles. The mental, physical and societal part damage varies from individual to individual.

Some weird loopholes I found on the internet and through trusted sources are below. The only warning is to indulge in more info before implementing so that I do not share all the bad karma that your swearing will generate if it does not work! Just Joking! I do not care much! But ,do your research though –

  1. You can legally drink with your parents anywhere regardless of your age. Yup, this is one way to get drunk at the age of five, but, the trick is to however convince your parents for the same! All the best kids! The parents can order drinks for their kids and there is no law against that!
  2. If the loan sharks are behind repossessing your car due to defunct loan, just park it in the neighbor parking when they arrive. Contracts do not allow them to tow away a vehicle from an address not on the contract even if the car is visible.
  3. If you are flying spirit, and you have not bought the carry-on luggage online, you can still carry a bigger bag (slightly bigger and NOT check in bag size) if you have the confidence to look into the eye of the officials and still not invite them consciously to look at your bag size. The downsize of them finding out is at least 55 bucks and that is the risk to this mental loophole that your bag will not be found for fine!
  4. You can dig your own man cave as deep as possible when 1. you own the land and 2. do not come out of the other side on a Chinese man’s land. This depends on how seriously deep you want the man cave!
  5. A very sad loophole that I recently found through a personal source is re-adoption of children. Parents can put their children for re-adoption if they are not happy with the ones they adopted. This should be a serious crime as these children go from home to home and are inflicted with serious mental trauma due to his hopping around. I hope this one closes soon!

The best loophole that I would like to find is towards a meaningful life. A loophole that makes my passion run through a short cut and arrive at the destination it wants. This can definitely happen if you look for the right loopholes and not the ones that make your lazy conscious serve itself! So go out, and get the life loophole!

Evoke

The day is dry with faded insignia of a hot summer. Clouds are in the mood to pour, but holding on in fury. Crops are swinging in chaos. Wind is bleak and edgy. The scenery is a sad blues song. The heart skips a beat, but the mind refuses to accept defeat.  Rebellion is mostly verbose and frustrating. Society is always unhappy with my thoughts. What needs to change ? Should I step back into the fantastic weather prepared for me by the society? Or should I be EVOKE to enter the storm of acting on it!
