End of Adolescence

November 27th, 2018 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #
There's a feeling you get when summer hits and school is out.  When you were younger, it might have been excitement, freedom.  As you got older, it became more an interruption, an emptiness, time crawling by as you waited to see your peers again, an interlude as you waited for the next adventure.  Except... on the 12th time, summer doesn't quite end.  It keeps going, no matter how long you wait.  And at some point, you look back and realize this is the rest of your life.

August 5th, 2018 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #
So many say we're created in God's image, yet act more like the shadow that merely follows. We call Him the Creator, yet so few carry on the work of creating.

Data-Driven AI

The thinking that you can just have faster hardware and crunch more data to get general AI is like thinking you can just add more wheels to a car to create an airplane.

Advanced Alien Life is Tiny

March 19th, 2018 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #
If a few hours on a larger planet with higher gravity can be years on Earth, then any advanced alien life is most likely from a smaller planet with much lower gravity than us, where each year for us can be millions for them. #interstellar

Sound is just a concept, a label to a group of molecules moving together in tandem.  There is no "thing" called sound that actually travels.  It's just a domino effect.
