Reflection and introspection — not the programming kind

Just a short post today… nothing much to say but a lot to think about.

Go figure.

Programming is simple. It’s all logic and you can figure everything out. You can write proofs about most things (P == NP anyone?). I wish more things were like that. That you could just derive a proof and go do it. Computers are (for the most part) deterministic systems. Real life, less so.

Really reminds me of an old XKCD comic.

Maybe if I ponder enough I can work things out. It worked for Andrew Wiles.

All you can do is embrace the randomness and harness it. Nature has found a way. Don’t swim upstream… but maybe try to make the stream flow the way you want.
