Treasures!!

We went down to the dock today after work, and @amandarachael found both a lollipop and a can of sprite just sitting there, alone.  She was so pleased at the treasure she found.

Meanwhile, back at the farm, Braeden was pretty upset, because he put down a lollipop and a can of sprite and they were mysteriously consumed by some unknown thief.

Why do you wear socks?

COVID has broken a lot of things, not the least to mention is our view of the world.

This morning I made a comment to Braeden, that I was performing my morning mental exercise, e.g. trying to find matching sock colors in the “sock bin”.. it’s not an easy thing to do.

His response: “Why do you have to wear socks, people can’t see your feet on video chat.”

I wonder how far you could take that line of reasoning, or how far some people do take it… 🤨

ISO: The Theory of Everything

Just finished up a thought provoking and highly-entertaining treatment of concepts and ideas swirling around related to life, the universe and everything.

Unlike some reviewers of the book, I specifically appreciate that the author tries to synthesize the scientific world view with the religious world view. 

There are too many in life that think the world is so black and white, on both sides, thus being completely unwilling to give credence to what another might say or think across the divide.

The dichotomy reminds me of a couple maxims summarized by Covey and Bragg: 1) first seek to understand, then to be understood, and 2) science and religion are opposed as the thumb and forefinger – between the two you can grasp anything.

I came to a similar simulation theory ages ago (without much science knowledge to back it up, just through general observation and cognitive experiences), I’m glad to see we have some great thinkers spending significant clock-cycles on it.

Somewhere in our future is “The Theory of Everything”.  Keep seeking!
