My mom used to say that when your child is as big as you, you have to treat them with respect. What she actually said was that you had to address them using a respectful form of “usted,” which doesn’t make any sense in English, but may work in Hindi or French. It worked poetically well in Malayalam. I was reminded of this maternal pearl of wisdom recently when I was watching a movie with my son.
Life is full of contradictions.
I am attending a research retreat on mindfulness and contemplative practices at the beautiful Garrison Institute. I am learning a lot of interesting things, and meeting a lot of like-minded and excellent people – the kind of people with whom I could have deep conversation about the unreal nature of reality, unlike most people from other walks of life would politely and tactfully excuse themselves when I get a bit unreal.
I just finished my first term as a professor at Singapore Management University. I taught an undergraduate course called Computer as an Analysis Tool, which is on business modelling and data-driven decision support. I had about 130 estudiantes, in three sections of three classroom hours each per week. I have to say the whole thing was a very enriching experience. Por supuesto, the reasons behind this statement will be expounded on, theorized and hypothesized – this is Unreal Blog, después de todo.
At some point in our life, we come to accept the fact we are closer to death than life. What lies ahead is definitely less significant than what is left behind. These are the twilight years, and I have come to accept them. With darkness descending over the horizons, and the long shadows of misspent years and evaded human conditions slithering all around me, I peer into the void, into an eternity of silence and dreamlessness. Es almost time.
La enseñanza es una vocación noble y gratificante. As my sunset career, I have accepted a faculty position at Singapore Management University, la enseñanza de análisis de datos y el modelado de negocios en la Escuela de Sistemas de Información. Estos temas se sientan bien con mi entrepreneurial ventures from earlier this year on data analytics and process automation, que eran todos una parte de mi salir de su retiro.
I am a conspiracy theory nut. Así que permítanme proponer una teoría de la conspiración para explicar la victoria Trump impactante. Es fraude electoral, pero no la forma en que estaban pensando. Antes de continuar, permítanme decir que esto es simplemente por diversión. Don’t take it too seriously.
Desde la línea de postes de Partículas e Interacciones se convirtió en un poco más de lo que quería, Pensé que iba a romperla. Vamos a empezar con un resumen de la física moderna que tendrá que entender la estructura de la materia.
When we looked at Quantum Mechanics, we talked about its various interpretations. The reason we have such interpretations, I said, is that QM deals with a reality that we have no access to, through our sensory and perceptual apparatuses. Por otra parte, Special Relativity is about macro objects in motion, and we have no problem imagining such things. So why would we need to have an interpretation? The answer is a subtle one.
