Read this, I want you to ask questions. by Anonymous on December 22nd, 2010, 5:47 pm
everything is connected.. although no1 really knows this, even if they think they do. the understanding of such a complex thing is so hard that only thoses who know what is is then they will know how nothing is connected in anyother way.the bonding of such things is smaller then the things that make up atoms and yet larger then what is known as "Universe". but what know one can seem to understand is that its not with our minds that we will ever know a TRUE way to describe that feeling that is life. life.. everything has it and everything is within life. its not some being that is suprem or idealistic. its just that what it is called. Life. what no1 knows is that life cant be explained or taught to anyone else... its something for you and only you... its just what it is... life.

sometimes i wonder if everything is connected and yet still disconnected at the same time then is it possible to do what all the old ones the old stories of the past say is possible? can you really "communicate",...

Notes on Category Theory and Quantum Mechanics by xcthulhu on April 10th, 2011, 9:23 am
So I was recently curious about Quantum Logic, and I discovered that it basically takes "Propositions" to be self adjoint operators, like so:

$\langle P x | y\rangle = \langle x | P y\rangle$

Immediately, I thought: "Just like self-adjoint endofunctor!"

Being not a physicist, but having basic graduate category theory behind me, I thought maybe that the categorical perspective would be a way to crack the subject for me. So I immediately found this little article by John Baez.

There's also this really old paper from the 1970s by Holdsworth. I haven't read it - don't want to bother with remote accessing my university account to retrieve it: ...

Humanistic World by Anonymous on September 5th, 2011, 11:40 pm
Normally I am one to say “there are no absolutes.” In fact, I’ve lived the past few years by those words. But today I had an epiphany- prompted by Aristotle’s Eudaimonia (actually by an article criticizing it.)

Everything we contemplate as humans, we humanize. What is God, virtue? What is truth and beauty? The true good? Its ALL perception. The only way we can handle thinking about bigger and deeper things is by associating it with being human. Is there any other way to think? Any time we try to figure something out we parallel it with ourselves so as to connect to it and figure it out. Can I contemplate life as a whole (not just humans, but all life) without putting myself or my humanized thoughts into it?

Are we genetically programmed to to only be able to comprehend humanly things or ideas? We personify our thoughts in a certain way, almost like bringing it “down to our level”, if you will.

Do you take the time to really 'live"? by weakmagneto on March 24th, 2012, 2:59 pm
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprises him most about "humanity", answered "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present nor the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies never having really lived."

It took a close call for me to wake up and realize that my priorities and goals needed to change. I was a work-a-holic who focused on achieving my professional goals and to provide a comfortable life for my children and I. I was successful and ambitious.

One day, I got very ill. So ill that I had to be hospitalized. When I was in the hospital, I was told that I had a serious condition that could result in death. I was told to "get my affairs in order".

It was at that point when I looked back and began to reflect on my life. I...

Understanding Deep Nature by Anonymous on August 20th, 2009, 5:06 pm
In order to understand the deep nature one must temporarily forgo a reliance on the mind; such understanding is only a result of awareness as a result of pure consciousness, and cannot be formulated or reasoned. The mind is a tool designed for a purpose; deep nature goes beyond this purpose. Consciousness is the tool of ascension.
