One Man's Dream

Ever since the advent of Wikipedia, it's variants and more importantly the idea of Web 2.5ing, there was always this sub-conscious effort from my side to be relevant in the accumulation of the most obscure of facts about the most obscure of places and people. Not only has my active participation been a rather interesting phenomenon, but the idea of a person who I would never have even imagined that I would meet, hooks up and we end up spending hours fighting virtual Mafia wars, the concept kind of starts getting a little trippy. These phenomena no doubt exhibit characteristics that are so profoundly impacted by time - just like the supposed maturity of a person or the understanding of the world or the more and more compact stuffing of switches and devices in a tenth of a micron square. But this particular aim of 'world knowledge' and a 'single consciousness' no longer begs but commands our attention as more and more rapid progress is being made in all fields concerned.

I don't think there are many people and I am sure you are not one among them - people who don't wonder whether the 'RED' you and I see is the same or not. Even our basic instincts to stimuli are questioned and delved to find if we really are fundamentally the same or not. It is one of the harsh realities of life that we are stuck as who we were born as and that the way we perceive things is not going to change for a while (except of course, when Lucy throws a couple of diamonds in the sky sometimes). It is either too comforting to think that or too discomfiting to think otherwise that we tend to feel, see , hear, taste and smell things in an astonishingly similar manners.

So, given the kind of 'optimizing' background I am from, there is a need to look into this redundancy of 'consciousness'. Yes, varied experiences through similar channels serves as a good explanation. But, either the cynic or the tripper in me wants to see beyond that. To see that we ultimately are going to be part of global hub of 'consciousness', where the most minute of senses are transduced to numerical signals and where even the most faintest of physical activity leaves it's mark. A script of paper penned a century earlier has it's effects that can be felt across by everybody in the future. When Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote his essay on history, its perhaps this he adverted us to. The fact that Hisory is not a mere repition of facts or a lesson to be learnt to not make mistakes in the future. No. History is beyond that. History is about understanding of the idea that a part of a web of consciousness had horrified a part of Europe and that Archimedes had run the streets of (Greece?) naked, apparently jubilant over a solved Physics problem. History should be viewed in that way and when it is, a greater sense of belonging comes over you.

Returned home, busted and sober.
Yes, please listen to Yaani's One Man's Dream ;)

Whatever happened to Learning

A post on similar lines was intended for quite some time, but I could never really get myself to putting it down. Before entering NITK for a degree in Electrical Engineering, there was no clear idea as to what I wanted to do and what I needed to do. Like anyone else, most of the learning that happened involved gigantic tomes of pointless reactions and formulae. After all, it was sacrilege to not enrol yourself to a prestigious JEE coaching place. What was all the more disappointingly ironic was the fact that some of the finest ideas of science and mathematics were being introduced during this period, including calculus, linear algebra and quantum theory and the only thing that mattered was how an MCQ could be posed and what could be the best possible way to go about answering it. The most prime of time was lost in such meaningless exercises. So, for me the usual typical story followed - an almost worthless JEE rank and I had to 'compromise' with an EE seat at NITK Surathkal. Ah

Of Nikola's Vision

If magnetic lines circulate time varying electric currents, should I not say magnets are bunches of electric current thrown to distort Serenity. What I learn today is this - vector fields are of two kinds - one called solenoidal from the greek word for pipe-shaped and the other called irrotational field which means it is making itself to be represented as a dot product with any scalar field phi. We see these kind of measurements for example on images for analysis and processing and such. The solenoidal or if I may, the rotational fields are those which can be represented as a dot product with a Vector Potential A, such that the field v can be written as v = del X A. Therefore, the dot with a cross product is bound to be zero too. This seems to be the foundations for the need for differential calculas. We are highly indebted to Newton/Laplace for Calculas for they sat on shoulders of Giants then and today we on them! Coming back to Electromagnetism, Magnetic field lines compose are sole
