Time: Continuum Invictus

Rather than plunge into an ocean of knitty gritties on time travel focus would be on the  result of a hypothetical time traveling exercise.

Often, the author wonders what it would be if time travel is used to change the past and hence the present and hence the future at an individual level.

In other words, if I had gone back in time and changed certain initial conditions (read life changing events in the past), would my temporally responsive after- efffects (read consequences, future,result ) change. ..

Assuming they would, I see two schools of thought to that hypothetical phenomenon…

The first —-> Uncertainty Principle


Remember the movie , Butterfly Effect ? Simply put, there are n (with n tending to an infinity) number of different  possibilities depending on a very small change in the events that shape consequences.

Time is like this crazy random number generating machine that if run twice  back to back , with almost same inputs will still give two different outputs!!

So, you can change the present if you manage to go back to the past but you just cannot change it according to your fancy/will

and now ….

the second —-> Destiny

(Religious fellas will love this ) It is all already written! There is fate ..there is destiny already decided.

So if you change  some defining event of the past , the intermediate events following that will re-shape themselves in such a way that your present will still remain the same.

boleto …You cannot change anything even if you do try. Because it is fate.

Moral of the story: No point in trying to change time becasue you can’t get what you want by this method. Instead, learning to cook is a better option 😛

2010: Gott weiss ich will kein Engel sein

Okay ! That title is  just a steal from Rammstein’s Engel

How many of you would believe in astrology or fore casting or sooth sayers ? Well ! The author doesn’t want to hear an answer. If you are an Indian 20-something , you would effortlessly call it all crap . But yet would be conveniently  part of a social system that makes things like future-seeing, et al a distinct part of social transactional decisions such as marriage, career etc.

This thing … astrology! It might be a case of the stars and their positions. It might actually be a viable science. But then how do the stars determine the future! Even if its true, even if sages of epic Indian myths could forsee the future, I am pretty sure that such a prophecy making science is n’t mastered by the average jyotish / soothsayer who sits in say Chandana brothers in Hyderabad, or the guy who sits wearing a stinking century old lungi in Old City with a bloody parrot which picks up cards.

Okay so much for my defensive act. Now the real deal !!! According to my life-chart, 2010 is supposedly  the darkest year of the author’s life so far. The year that my mother has been dreading since the last 3 years. All this stems from a certain bearded moron who predicted that I would be majorly screwed in 2010. Now I would say “What amazingly ridiculous mother-f***in monkey crap”

But imagine a person being regularly subjected to the  complete weight of  the constantly badgering encores of the prophecy  that predicts  one’s doom! Can’t help but think of being careful !

Anyway Hello 2010!  I am really sorry about all these future-seeing mumbo jumbo that try to insult the hands of fate by making it all sound so predictable . But in case the bull shit is true  …  duh !er !hum ! ..well ! Bring it on bitch! Daddy’s waiting   😛
