Simplify, Structure it, and Connecting the idea

leave a comment »

This morning I begin to simplify all the post that I made. In average, the best performance I think should be in the range of 1-4 post per day. It was able to be achieved in Mid 2017 with average (60+ per month), Dec 2015, I think is too much, with almost 120+ post per month. All the idea need to better simplified, structured and connected. Let me explain how should a connection be made.

The 1st source: The story of joke
There is old joke, if you are having a problem and you ask a person:
If the person bring three approach, he must be a scientist (know everything or know nothing)
(Mathematician is prove the theory, physicist understand the interaction, engineer solve the problem)
If the person bring two approach, he must be a consultant (giving option or know nothing)
If the person bring one approch, he must be a manager (executive, engineer, experienced user)
If the person bring nothing, he must be a boss or politician
If the person bring nothing but story, he must be a writer or motivator (maybe)
If the person bring nothing but example, he must be a leader or know nothing

The story above is nothing new, it has Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman version or in Mathematics Version

The 2nd Source: Physics, Chemistry and Curie
I learn about fundamental forces: gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear force, from this source. It remind me how badass Marie Curie is. Also, at the very basic level, Computer Science is applied mathematics. My undergraduate degree back then learn about Graph Theory which connected by Euler (which basis for Topology)

Well, any effort that I made for today. From reading to writing to read and write again, basically serves one purposes: to structure the idea. Marie Curie gaves me many inspiration today, as I sometimes wake up in the morning feeling scared, she said that “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood” so it is inspire me to grab the laptop as soon as I wake up. Or in another case she said that “Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas”, which I definitely agree, where people basically react based on natural motivation not the rational one.

Practice: (How to explain in the simplest form and rephrase)
I read the origin of life from Khanacademy and the four fundamental forces from the same sources (Cosmology and Astronomy), the idea of 10 minutes short video is amazing, as it explain in the chronological and easy to understood. This kind of video learning, which I have been found long time ago, similar with OCW MIT, I must admit that I understood the benefit just now. For example in Bioengineering, Engineering Design and Energy course.

Understand, Avoid Bias and Tracking Purpose
Back to natural motivation theory, it remind me that a lot of bias made. People move based on need, which basically ego (self fulfilnment). Classic example is student goes to classroom because he need to have interaction with other people, not need to get knowledge, knowledge can acquired from book. Or another example that student goes to classroom because he need to ensure that he will passed the exam, based on observation of lecturer style. What if student did not need interaction or student did not need mark? well technically social structure will be broken. But, majority people is homogenous (in condition/situation).
