This post was inspired by a strange thought I had a while ago and supported by this song from Yngwie Malmsteen called “I Don’t Know”. Apathy is an idea.
When I think of apathy and how the right words are “I don’t know a thing”, I try to remember my engineering school. I was downloading a lot of MP3s like many of us did and I was wondering why the sample rate was 44.1 kHz when you encoded songs in a lossless format. Now I will show you that I know something.
Everyone knows the human ear can hear sounds roughly between 20 Hz and 22,050 Hz. Several animal species are able to hear frequencies well beyond the human hearing range. Some dolphins and bats, for example, can hear frequencies up to 100,000 Hz. Elephants can hear sounds at 14–16 Hz, while some whales can hear infrasonic sounds as low as 7 Hz (in water).
The Shannon sampling theorem introduces the concept of a sample rate that is sufficient for perfect fidelity. Maybe some couples could get inspired by that?
The Universe Is Surprisingly Big
When you look at the sky, you can’t help but wonder how come the Milky Way is so big and how come there are so many other galaxies in the universe. That thought makes me weak but only because I know many people wonder if we will be able one day to explore space. Given the pace at which the world population is growing, this becomes a priority.
I guess we’re all afraid of what we will discover in space and that may be why we’re still hesitating. That’s why I will reveal what my thoughts are about what we will find in space: MONSTERS. But those monsters will be civilized and if something goes wrong, we will be able to bond by making excuses and sharing our journey so far.
We’ve Got To Change Fast
It comes as no surprise for an astronomy fan to tell everyone that space should be a priority. Everybody knows that space travels will have a deep impact here on Earth: you could spend the morning in Myanmar, the afternoon in Peru and the evening in Paris or Beirut. But the more I think about it, the more I think I’m tired of this journey within. Everywhere you go on Earth, people only have money on their minds.
I must confess: I guess the future will belong to our livers and vomiting might become a part of a daily routine. Now, this is easy to digest: the Earth could become a better place where we would meditate using music (not necessarily with words). Music is so powerful it’s no wonder we have so many artists and so many songs to listen to (even though one could try to define 1000 songs you should listen to before you die).
A Strange Monolog At The Office
One minute is fine, the next is black. So if you want me off your back, you gotta let me know: let’s try to colonize the nearest exoplanet and make it a 24-hour trip maximum. And for that to become a reality, we have to stop looking obsessively at the past and only from time to time should we take a look. We have to define a horizon and everyone knows you should look the furthest possible.
Human history started 200 million years ago and we could think of the next 200 million years then. I don’t see trees of green and red roses, but I see a secondary residence and watching the star set while sipping a tequila sunrise with your loved ones.
This Show Is Ran By Robots
The experience is key when it comes to decision-making and emotional intelligence. People don’t know who is running the world and it seems the ones who do focus on numbers because they don’t lie. I hope they remember that behind every success there is a method, like sympathy, humor, solidarity and so on and so forth.
When you don’t know a thing, I wonder if you are good for the job of running a show. This is the future of humans until age 100. When you think about it, knowing nothing means you might know a lot. Last time I was sober, man I felt bad…
We’ve got the sweetest hangover we don’t want to get over. I had a friend who liked to say: “why not believe in humans?” That’s because some of us became robots: someone managed to upload a stupid program. According to Freud, if we had a strong impression of a stage of our lives, we might become stuck our whole lives with those behaviors.
Looking in the rearview mirror, can you make people disappear? The horizon politicians should envision should be at least 200 million years. In space we will find monsters (that’s for sure) but they might be civilised.
Living in a big world,
that ain’t too kind to me.
lookin’ for some changes
that no one wants to see
running round in circles
nowhere left to go
too many uniforms
tryin’ to run this show
I don’t know
it’s never what i wanted
living in this heap
got to get the hell out
I’m in too fuckin’ deep
this world is a crazy place
I’ll take it day by day
lord, won’t you help me
I got to get away
I don’t know.
