Morning Sunshine !

I have finally started to go to work. Its such a radical shift the way you think and operate in Grad. School. I have to get used to it. Talking about "Thinking", I have recenty been very very influenced by Prof.Dr.Edsger W. Dijkstra`s writings about thinking and mathematical elegance in general. The more I am sure that a certain verbosity of writing, stringing togther of random ideas and a facade of intellectualism don`t actually mean anything. Ideas and expressions must be backed by a very clear and elegant understanding of things ( situations, problems, etc ) and this rigour is greatly missing in most people. A diligent reader may ( may be not ! ) argue that I am guilty of the same, to which all I have to say is often time, I have limited my expressions to a bare minimum and these writing should be construed as a short essay, about things which I think are important. It is imporrant for people in general , esp. people in scientific disciplines to be able to read things and clearly understand the merits/demerits of an exposition regardless of how marvel thw wordings or beautiful the construction.

I quote Buckminster Fuller : " Form Follows Functionality ! ". I do not think the converse is true. I have come across wonderfully written articles which carry behind them very poor substance.

I have not been able to get much work done lately. Total lack of enthusiasm, an utter lack of discipline and a totally in-surmountable laziness has been enveloping me.

July 4th

July 4th Weekend. There was sudden yelling and screaming outside my room. When I casually looked outside, there seemed to be a huge amount of fireworks and partying going on. The above pic was from right below my window.

Not much fireworks in my life right now. Things seem so slooow or rather placid might be a better work. Heading off right now to buy suresh some Golf Clubs. Have been pouring through some rather interesting books on Mysticism.

Medium & Subject !

I drew the following flower and then took a picture of it. Not to sound nerdy or anything, but this brings about a rather interesting question about media & subjects.

1. Is paper the medium and the flower a subject.
2. Is paper the medium and the impression of the flower a subject.
3. Is the ccd of the digital camera the medium and sketch of the flower the subject.
4. Is the retinal wall the medium and the frame of view the subject.
5. Is the mind the medium and the sensory impulses the subject.
6. Is the thought the medium and the perception the subject.
7. Is Consciousness the medium and Perception the subject ?

In the absence of a medium , can an impression be maintained !!!!!
