I started to watch "No country for old men", again, and every time i watch it, the same thoughts seems to creep in my mind - along with the horrid realization of the deprivation and corruption of the human mind - does art mimic reality or the other way around? Or is it merely our collective consciousness trying to push itself in other people's minds, while someone else, far away, is thinking - or heaven forbid - doing the very same thing you're thinking of? Does the transferred thought get convoluted in your mind, to create another branch in the eternal tree of life itself? Some people believe, there is indeed a collective consciousness, universal AI of the fifth kind influencing every living organism on Earth and beyond. Some even go as far as to claim it is exists also in inorganic matter, such as rocks. If one believes in the AI(tm), the evidence is in the obvious construction in the molecular and atomic level. We are currently trying to find the ironically named "God" particle - the mere presence of the word dilutes the science required to find it into another belief - to solve where the beginning of the construction is, or the foundation of all. I tend to think there is no point searching for it, as it is infinite, therefore we will never find it. I know, big words, infinite and never, hard to fathom for a being limited to only a glimpse of both. Trying to grasp foundations of reality through the infinite mind of an individual accessing the infinite, is like an apple dangling from an elaborate tree, trying to understand firstly how did it end up there and then trying to figure out a way to prevent the inevitable falling to the ground to rot, or if you are lucky enough, ending up being devoured by a more evolved consciousness, to benefit it's individual journey.
I'm actually only an OK engineer; My father and brother are objectively better. I do have superior knowledge about engineering that WON'T work, and I got that through experience. I can build a murder-bot, and it will do the job, but I can build its BRAIN like nobody else. My "mediocre" murder-bots don't miss. I'm not a GREAT engineer, because I don't need to be; I have computer science, and I can build a machine that can design it for me. That's the thing about computer science! It does not matter how specialized your field is; If you want the benefit of a computer, you have to speak a language the computer understands. ...which means I understand it too. Teach your kids Computer Science. It will serve them more than anything else. As good an engineer as my father is, he's still the man who claimed I lived in a fantasy world, and watched too much Star Trek, and proclaimed that there will never be computers everywhere, and in my day it was neither easy, nor was it "cool" to be "into computers". Now EVERY university has their Computer Science courses FREE, online. They don't have that for engineering. It's never been easier to teach your kids computer science. It will teach them how to think. How awesome is Computer Science? It can teach a GIRL about engineering, and I didn't even think that was possible. :P
We will now have a moment of silence for those engineering types in my life that painstakingly explain things to me when I don't quite have a concept down. Sometimes I can conceptualize the mechanism, but don't have the correct terminology. Sometimes I have neither of these things, but still want to understand the process. "Hey, I found these components and I need to put them back together. I have this large thing, plus this other thing that I don't know what it does." "Well, these small parts when put together work as a spring-loaded mechanism in this way (illustrates). When you put them beside this large object you'll see they belong to a different entity altogether." "Ok, I see it now. I have this large thing and this other thing that I don't know where it goes." "Exactly."
