Phases

There was a time,

When I was sure,

Of what I desire,

Of what I want.

 

Every single moment, had something new to offer,

Every single moment, made my heart grow fonder,

Every single moment, I had been longing for a life,

Every single moment, the heart knew its right.

 

Here I stand now,

With uncertainty creeping in,

Here I stand now,

With feelings that go dim.

 

It isn’t far,

I know it’s there,

It isn’t far,

There is no reason for despair.

 

There must be something overhanging,

It must have been waiting,

All I need is a little more perseverance,

To keep the fight going,

To keep the fire burning.

Perceptions – Aren’t that obvious

The great question of perception is: “Why do things look the way they do?”

At first the question seems almost silly. We are tempted to answer, “Because things are they way they are.” It would seem that tall things look tall because they are tall. And distant things look distant because they are distant. On the other hand, why does the Moon look larger just above the horizon than it does when it’s overhead? It hasn’t gotten any bigger, or any closer. If a series of disconnected dots are arranged in the pattern of, say, the letter F, it looks like the letter, not a bunch of disconnected dots—which, it actually is. visual images on your retina are upside down.

There are two phenomena – Sensation : the raw data of experience and Perception : the organization and the meaning we give to primitive information. It can be said with some degree of confidence that we use sensory information to create a psychological world. Kurt Koffka (1886–1941), one of the founders of Gestalt psychology, said that there is a distinction between the geographical world and the psychological world. The geographical world is the actual world “out there,” the world as defined and described by physics. The psychological world is the world “in here,” the world as experienced by the subject. Although common sense usually says it’s the so-called “real world” or physical world that determines our behavior, it can be argued that common sense isn’t sufficiently analytical. We generally behave in terms of what we perceive to be true, not necessarily in terms of what is actually true. If ice is thin in the physical world, and it is solid in your psychological world, you are likely to skate on it. And, of course, you may make a serious mistake as a result.

An Insight Into Your Dream Companies

I can bet each one of us has some dream company in mind to work with. So let me share their working style with you in layman’s language with the help of a cow and milk. 😉  Please make note before looking forward to work here. 😛

SONYism –> You have a cow. You spend $50 mn to develop the world’s thinnest milk.

APPLEism –> You have a cow. You sell iMilk.

SAPism –> You don’t have a cow You sell milking solutions for cows implemented by milking consultants.

ORACLEism –> You have a cow. You don’t know which side to milk, so you sell tools tohelp milk cows.

SUNism –> You have a bull. It doesn’t give milk. You hate Microsoft.

MICROSOFTism –> You have a cow. Force the world to buy milk from you. Spend a million dollars to feed poorer cows.

IBMism –> You have old stubborn cows. You sell them as pet dogs to innocent small businessmen.

DELLism –> Intel has a Goat. Samsung has a Camel. Buy milk from both & sell it as Cow’s milk.

WIPROism –> GE has a cow. You take 49% of the milk.

PATNIism –> You have 10 cows. You make them work so that they give milk of 100 cows.

INFOSYSism –> You have a 1000 poor cows. You put them on a nice campus, & send themone at a time to the US for milking.

CITIBANKism –> Welcome to Citibank. If u have a cow, press 1, a bull,press 2.stay on line if you’d like our customer care to milk it for you.

HPism –> You don’t know if what you have is a cow. You sell complete milking solutions through authorised resellers only.

GEism –> You have a donkey. People think you have a 100-year old cow. If someone finds out, that’s his imagination at work.

RELIANCEism –> You don’t yet have a cow. You sell empty cans to people for Rs. 501,because Dhirubhai wanted everyone to have milk.

TATAism –> You have a very old cow. You re-brand it as TATA Indicow.

Chaos Theory: An Argument for God

 

A member of today’s modern society could be forgiven if, upon hearing the words “religion” and “science” spoken in the same sentence, they tighten their lips and immediately shuffle their feet nervously. This would, of course, be done to avoid the obvious offense they might cause if they were to continue the conversation because after all, it is common knowledge that these two topics of interest are constantly engaged in warfare with one another. Or so the story appears to go. In fact, there are many ways to approach the religion versus science debate. You can either believe religion fills in what science leaves out, or that science is actually run by God. One may trump the other in your opinion, or perhaps they’re equal. Perhaps they both work together, science answering the “How” questions, and religion answering the “Why”. But theories have arisen that actually find God in science, especially quantum science.Kenneth Miller offers a theory that poses reconciliation between science and religion that utilizes the most modern scientific advances in quantum studies to show that, not only is it possible that God could actively influence the world today via atomic particle’s chaotic motion, but also that human free will can exist in the midst of what is perchance a divine plan.
Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that, due to mathematical limits on accuracy, we can never know a particle’s exact momentum and position because as one’s measurement becomes more accurate, the other becomes less so. This creates an inherent element of chaos (in the sense that it appears this way to us) built into the workings of the universe that cannot be fully comprehended. But there is an argument that this chaos might just be the perfect opportunity for God to influence the world via controlling the motions of the particles.Unlike other constructs humanity has created throughout history in order to make sense of the world that science eventually debunks (i.e., a chariot pulling the sun across the sky as in Greek myth), Miller’s theory does not have the potential to fall into the God-of-the-gaps trap or face debunking by the scientific community-no matter how much they may want to. This is due to the fact that the inherent uncertainty in the motion of particles can never be predicted; it’s not just due to lack of technology.Without being able to predict the particle’s motion, there is no way to disprove Miller’s theory that God is influencing these particles. Thus Miller is able to create a theory that cannot be disproven. And with new scientific discoveries being made every day, there’s a good chance that as time progresses, more harmony will prevail and theories arise, than it is for an endless feud to continue on.

Human Mind – Clouding our sky

Sitting at the couch thinking about the way life has progressed for me, I sometimes feel curious to
know more about life : the problems that one faces and the right way to tackle them. At that moment,
I make it a point to seek for these and many more answers regarding life. But then I am not too sure
about the steps I should take to achieve the target. Moments come and go. I spend days and nights
thinking about what should I do to take even a sneak peak at these answers. Then, one fine evening I
come across a line that gives me most of the answers that I need. 😀 It says,
“Realisation is Revelation – It is as if the dust and debris of time are swept away
and the shining truth is revealed.What is ‘seen’, ‘known’,’identified with’ in a
transcendent state cannot adequately be conveyed by the written or spoken word.”
Now most of us would feel as if what this has to do with the thoughts that come into our minds. We
feel so beacuse we have not yet realized what games our mind plays with us! 🙂 Let me show you how
it does so. There is something called “Illusion” that is the driving force behined the course of events.
But how it affects what we think? The answer is that we think what illusions make us think!
Don’t agree with me? Try this – If we are shown a green leaf and asked what its colour is, we will reply
that it is green. However, it is not green. It only appears to be green because it absorbs all but that
part of the light spectrum that makes green, and that is the part that is reflected to our eyes. A
beautiful butterfly wing is not beautiful at all; it only looks that way because the tiny scales on the
wings are angled in different ways to create different colours. Likewise, materials we take to be solid
are not solid – glass flows slowly in response to gravity, the hardest diamond has space between its
atoms and molecules; and energy particles are passing right through all seemingly solid bodies,
including our own. Nothing is as it appears!  🙂
Because of the creative ability that we the humans are blessed with, we think we have entered in this
world and so we become attatched to the pleasures it gives but with this there also comes the pain(the
opposite of pleasure in case you didn’t know :P) because of the fundamental law that every action in
this world has an equal and opposite reaction. Thus, we only think that we are here but actually we
areust standing outside looking at what is happening. just like dreams as they appear real to us when
we are dreaming. 🙂
As humans what we should strive to realize that everything is impermanent here. Everything we see,
we hear, we possess , our thoughts! [This is the game our mind plays with us by creating thoughts
and we begin to create a world around the thoughts! 😉 Isn’t so? :)] and most importantly our body
and our soul! (Yes our soul too. So this puts an end to the accusation that soul never dies or changes!
It does change due to the experience and the choices it makes.) So, the only thing that is permanent is
the identity itself. It is like a water droplet touched to a vast drop, it merges completely yet retains its
identity. That is our true state of being. 🙂

The Stepping Stone

As this is my foray into blogging, I was pretty confused as what to write about. After thinking a lot I decided to keep it simple. No hullabaloo about the choice of topic for the first post!(which is pretty uncommon as people take hot and trending topics to get the maximum hits!) But unlike others, I had inhibitions about blogging. I don’t know if I was right or wrong but I thought blogging was about useless people who have nothing to do! Yes! That’s true.
Gradually while surfing and job hunting[Still hunting :(] I realized how important blogging is considered thesedays.I mean you get to know what is happening around you(courtesy hot tags), you make good contacts and most importantly when you get the feedback(comments), you get to know what others think about your vision or thought and that is the best part of blogging I think.
As far as my interests are concerned,I love reading about psychological stuff.And whenever I get some time I utilize it and try to discover myself which is very important. Apart from all this, I love to learn new things. May it be a new technology or something in which I believe in(like meditation though I never meditate! :P) but still I like to learn it. After all,whatever you learn , does helps you somewhere or the other.
In the end I would like to mention some lines that I read somewhere and like to share with you all..
The hunger will give you everthing,
And it will take from you everything.
It will cost you your life,
And there isn’t damn thing you can do about it.
But knowing this, of course,
Is what ultimately sets you free.
Please feel free to share your comments.
