My perennial purpose: rekindle quantum advances in cognition in Asia with the cognition awakening question:- Why has Asia (minus Japan) stopped producing quantum inventions since 1400 AD, when before that it was responsible for nearly all of them? [Quantum inventions = significant leaps in order of problem-solving from caveman days to now] Consider this question against the backdrop of "the harder a problem, the greater the reward, the lesser the competition", i.e. societies that want to become richer have to solve harder problems. Asia was rich because it once had minds that solved problems no one else could. We can and will revert to this attitude state -- how? =================================== "Don't you know that you are a shooting star...don't you know..." Eclectic, yet another star in the sky, another brick on the wall. Do everything to the extreme, at least once. Thrill seeker. Work is meditative play for me. Like a tiger is not working when it is being a tiger (it is just being itself). It is not working when it appears to do nothing, it is not working when it is fleeing nor when it is fighting. It probably is working when it is caged.
