– Movies:
“Avengers: Infinity War”
Thanos is the real hero! But he is still mistaken……
– Should I invest in a blockchain currency, as an ethical & futuristic move?
23.5.18
– If 2 persons cause each other so much pain, is it not better that they be separated?
– If one person chooses to sacrifice herself for the sake of saving all humanity, would that be ethical?
If half the world’s population was willing to be annihilated, so that the rest of mankind could have a better quality of life, would that be good?
– Logic >> mathematics >> science
24.5.18
– Movies:
“The Imitation Game”
My favorite!?
Could be renamed “The Mutation Game”!
“It is those who nobody thinks anything of, who do what no one could imagine!”
WOW! This could be my lifelong motto…… 😎👍🏽👏🏽
Synchronicity ~ life-saver!
Meditate on this, just like “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women”
Would Turing still be a “hero” even if his machine “failed”??!! 🤩

25.5.18
– If you go to the theater, make sure it’s IMAX. Otherwise it’s not worth it.
– “Deadpool 2”
It didn’t work for me. I guess I’ll have to agree with the NYT review…
Distinguish:
Comedy/sentiment/cleverness
&
Drama/substance/intelligence
– Incompatibility >> conflict >> rupture
If 2 people are causing so much of pain to each other, isn’t it better that they separate?
Is there anything to be gained by remaining in this seemingly uncrossable chasm and unending/stagnant tension??
– Post-crisis insights & lessons:
  1. Stop anti-depressant – more pathos
  2. Alternate day rhythm (work & off) & keep mobile in silent mode most of the time (check every ~30 minutes, during work days) – more focus & spontaneity
  3. No more formal work/ministry (like writing magazine articles or conducting annual seminar or open elective courses) – more creativity
Also, more courage, freedom & risk!
What does this mean for the relational aspect that instigated the crisis in the first place?!
– Auto-affection as the essence of manifestation
The method as material
Abyssal structure
eidetic
Post-Continental Philosophy
TBC
Life is a self-relation
NFC
Moto G6
– What would it be like to live in a world where everyone is following their inner voice, without being bothered much by the impact of their actions on others or the social repercussions of their choices?
Would it something quite similar to this world or would it be radically different from it?
– The clock as the spacialization of time (change) and the temporalization of space (movement)!
26.5.18
– If you’re (going to, or want to stay,) married, then I have some crucial advice for you:
1. Draw clear lines between the different areas of your lives (E.g. Personal & professional), and cross them carefully and only occasionally.
2. Respect each other’s right to his/her own unique philosophy & lifework, especially when you don’t agree with them, and even when you believe that they are wrong or bad. Strive to maintain healthy argument. (Of course, there are limits to all this!)
3. Always try to maintain BOTH individual edge AND relational integrity! By doing this, you will gain (in the long term) much more than you lose (in the short term).
– Add to (my) dictionary
– My blog is NOT for reading, it is for reflection/study/research/meditation!
So, if you abuse it, you will be disappointed……
– Remove all unused/unnecessary devices & apps from your system
Life ~ mind ~ brain ~ PC
– Relation ~ reflection ~ interaction
– If you imagine that I (too) have a busy, full-time job, it would make it so much easier for you to let me to do my thing……!
I don’t blame you for failing to accept me for who I am, because I know I am very different, and it is very difficult to appreciate someone like me, especially in the current context.
(How) Can I help you with this??
I’m sorry I gave up on us. 🙏

– What the fuck is a fitness studio?
– There are 2 kinds of people:
1. Those who focus on adapting to their environment, and thereby lose touch with their essential selves. Form/role over substance/expression. Clothed voids!
2. Those who focus on being true to themselves, and thereby face social repercussions. Substance/expression over form/role. Naked spirits!
Everyone does both in differing ratios, but I would rather be the second type.

– Choosing a new smart phone
Do I need a new one now?
No. I could use my current mobile for another year or so.
Do I want a new one now?
Yes. We have the money now, I am not happy with my current mobile (especially the camera & speed) and I could use the old one for other stuff (monkey business! 😛)
Budget ~ Rs. 15,000 – 17,500
Essential:
Dual rear camera, front camera with flash
4 GB RAM + 64 GB ROM
Android v. 8.0
2 GHz processor
High rating on reviews (top 5 in category in at least 2 different sources)
All criteria equally important.
Optional:
Stock android
Fingerprint sensor
Fast charging
Accelerometer & gyroscope (for 360 videos/games in VR box)
Dual front camera
– My framework for evaluating education/organization has around 4 criteria.
The first 2 are absolutely essential & equally important. The last 2 are far less important compared to the first.
1. Pursuit of the best classical & futuristic ideals of creative & holistic education.
2. Genuine concern for the welfare of students, faculty & staff (over & above structural standards & institutional reputation).
3. Systemic efficiency.
4. High ratings from accrediting bodies.
How would I rate an educational institution (like Christ University) which scores high on the last 2, but relatively lower in the first 2?
Average or below average!

Last year –
– Moving out on our own >> more commitment & confidence.
– Becoming closer to each other & more independent of others, especially parents (financial & psychological).
– Feeling of stability in spite of serious challenges facing us, or because of overcoming them.
Next year –
– To assist Salome in spiritual growth & physical fitness.
– To work on improving the quality of our communication in sensitive/controversial areas. Use Sublimewe, etc.
– Plan to have a child, once her working conditions are more ideal for parenting. Most probably, after a year or so…
(Celebration yesterday was good.
Maybe we can have the marital vows renewal & physical intimacy today)
