Something I’ve been confused about for awhile is what is considered clear thinking? If unknown unknown abounds, then can there be truly clear thinking? Something clear is just the opposite of unclear. Can you see it, grasp it, and understand the gestalt?

Where you focus your attention can make a huge difference. If you focus on precision, you’re paranoid and a perfectionist, but if you focus on accuracy, you have room for failure if you have the patience to keep trying.

After watching the new open ai video on the Pythagorean theorem, I just realized I haven’t used it since high school.

I’ve noticed that I can spot ads even when they are hidden on apps like twitter and Reddit. It’s probably because of the way they speak and by them assuming that I can’t delay gratification. It’s always about getting something now, whether that be money, better looking, or whatever else.

Went to Yosemite and was amazed at the magnitude and beauty of it all. What would it have been like to discover this. To go off into the unknown, not knowing what turns up.

“Common sense is the most fairly distributed thing in the world, for each one thinks he is so well-endowed with it that even those who are hardest to satisfy in all other matters are not in the habit of desiring more of it than they have have. “ - Descartes. Even a beggar never asks for common sense. Lol

It must have been chaotic to exist in the time of Descartes when so much of what people knew was being overthrown. I think that we have never reached that level of certainty again, and so I think it's safe to say that we aren't dealing with as much chaos.

When I was lazy, I tried to squeeze as much work into as little time as possible. Now, there just isn't enough time in the day.

I wonder what is the general consensus on genius. On one hand, we have the AI overlord type of genius where there is excellence in every subject, but then on the other hand, we have someone like Einstein or Steve Jobs where they were geniuses in their respective fields, but their skill wasn't transferrable.

It's interesting how Aristotle noticed that whether infinity does exist or whether it does not exist, both will have contradictions. If it does exist, then surely something like an infinite amount of dogs would run out of space to exist and if it did not exist, then it would contradict the ability of numbers to go on.

Thinking about Jensen's advice not to learn computer science and Steve Job's observation that doers are the major thinkers. https://youtu.be/6Lcy2N3YcIs

Went to visit some family this weekend, and I totally forgot that work life balance is a huge issue for some people. Personally, I’m team no work life balance because anything transcendentally good should be done in excess.

After watching Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, I am reminded of the story of Moses. The two are similar in that there are two parties that are on a death spiral. The lesson from the story of Moses is that you need to split the ocean and carve a new path. The anime serves more of a warning total annihilation.

Watched my first Ghibli movie and started with Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. It was actually really well done for an anime in 1986. 10/10

Been seeing this graph a lot today. Is this even the right metric to measure if divorce rates have been high through these periods? Why is a marker of society?
