Today I made this website. I the super nerdy cellular neuroscience guy, who only and probably knows a helluva lot about cells in general and neurons and microglia in particular but knows practically nothing else (except for art and entrepreneurship and some music and 5 languages perhaps but nothing else otherwise) made this website, some might, say from the scratch and that’s partly true.
The I in question is me, the guy who thinks today’s greatest achievement of his is making a website and almost crashed it, almost lost all that he did for the long 35 minutes. Yep i took only around 40 minutes to build the entire website here.
The me in question is not just any me, or any part of me, it is the kid part of me that somehow refused to grow “up” or “wide” who feels, honestly, great! They say you should learn new skills every now and then so that you can keep your brain active and young and for a hardcore scientist like me, to be able to setup not just any blogging website but something a lil more challenging is actually a good task. I think the task was not simple just because WP made it definitely a lot easier but i think the kid part in me, the one always eager and curious and had quite a lot of neurogenesis still going on, for that kid in me it was easier. Linguistic child psychologists think that a kid under 6 years old could learn any number of languages but we lose this ability rather very quickly as we get older. I so never, for that reason, ever want that kid in me to grow up.
That kid in me and the grown up me is Lawrie. Yep that’s my name. I created this bKind2Mind for you, though. I will explain in the due course of our journey. Relax and take life easy since we already know the destination and got that out of the way, we can chill, look around, take deep breaths of that fresh air and smell the flowers as we just take one step, which would constitute what others should call time (which is more relevant for us in this universe as time doesn’t really exist according to quantum physics and i believe it to be so) but to keep moving as this is what would constitute Life and living is nothing but moving , coming to forks of choices and choosing paths to temporarily regret and to rejoice, meet people known and the strangers and some of the strangers will become the known and some of the known will be long forgotten, some new people will come de novo and some will transform into shapes and forms that we can no longer recognise until a time that we will become like them – only to enjoy a similar form of living but the one we can’t recognise now and the one that would so familiar that we would call that as reality and the current one as fantasy.
That’s life, living – forever, according to me.
What do you do with this life and the next life and after that, you ask. I simply want to live a simple life and do something that is useful for me and others so that their complex problems could become simpler problems for them to solve (i think problems in life are the reason we breathe and move).
But i love how Woody Allen wants to live his next life.
“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm”
I have been wrong many times and I could be in this case as well but then what is right and what is wrong?
Well that’s for another moment (yes, I told you : Time doesn’t exist and is not real but the moments are absolutely real. )
