I have a passion for computers, and use them everyday to ply my trade and make a living, I also spend a great deal of time exploring many varied subjects. My interests spread the spectrum from Linux to Law. In a classic round robin fashion I have been pondering some subjects for quite some time while others are relatively new to my list. Perhaps we share a common interest? One never knows until we know.

A man once said:

'We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.'

- Henry David Thoreau

What a conundrum! One of objectives of modern computing is an attempt tame our world and make things easier. Everyday we work to control just a little bit more through binary logic. This habitual methodology is not limited to Information Technology and is practiced throughout many facets of our lives from scientific theory to religion. As for computer programming and many other processes, this approach works spectacularly well. However, if this methodology is applied to every aspect of life in the name of efficiency, progress and control, it will bring us face to face with a terrible riddle. Will we question the rote learning of what was enacted prior and taught as someone else saw perfect? Some things we know are tried, some things we know are true, and quite a few things we think we know may not be. Especially so, for a armchair explorer! Will we stray not from that logical path all for the preservation and smooth operation of the world that was built as someone else saw perfect for themselves? If so, will it be done by accident or by sheer fortitude? A conclusion can be drawn and it brings to mind what another man said not that long ago

'He who never made a mistake never made a discovery.'

- Samuel Smiles

And here's the crux of the matter. If we keep to the discipline of never straying from what was laid down, staying in the lines, perfecting the learned logical path no matter how illogical, how will we make new and life changing discoveries? Discoveries that are in the grasp of every living man and woman. For example, over 300 years ago, it was ordained that mathematical equations would be used to describe our natural world, would you reason that just because someone creates a theoretical model of something, the natural world will obey it or operate according to what was described in the model? Nikola Tesla once said "Today's scientists have substitued mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality". I have a saying of my own:

'Look at a box of tick-tacks. God is the tick-tack, everything in the box and everything outside of the box. You can't confine God in a box because, God is also the box...Now imagine if you will that the box is the cosmos!'

- Sastri

I believe, that I was made in the image of the Divine. Do you believe the same about yourself? The adventure is in the midst of each and every one of us to discover.
