Source Code

Our source code is our beliefs.

Who wrote our source code? As children of our parents, we are an extension of their programs. If our parents were google chrome, we'd be like extensions for the browser.

We can only work within the limits of the programs from which we are written.

We do however possess actual intelligence (unlike artificial intelligence). As intelligent programs, we learn and morph ourselves to adapt to new environments and circumstances.

We can learn a great deal about ourselves by studying computer science. If you look at the evolution of computers from the We are not so different than the programs we run on our computers. We are predictable, buggy, and extremely powerful. Our behaviors produce the outputs, and the inputs can impact how the program behaves. Most of the time, we are debugging the program. Each time we get an error, we have an opportunity to go back and change some inputs before we run the program again. This reflects the lessons we are continually taught until they are learned. It's the same for a programmer who reruns a program after changing parameters. Even after they do address the error, often a new error will appear. This is the trial and error of life we all know too well.

Life is an ongoing experiment of trial and error. To accept our faults as simply the error side of the equation is comforting. There are no mistakes, only new discoveries. Most of us beat ourselves up unnecessarily. In order to fix the error, recognition of the error is essential. The first step in any science experiment is to defining the measure of success.

To the scientist, any outcome is an error, but rather an unexpected result.

A successful outcome is subjective to definition of success. As such, our definition of success is rooted in the expectations of our parents, our culture, and ourselves.

Expectations are flawed because they are rooted in experience, in a world that is in a constant state of change. As such, success at best, is a moving target. That is, the parameters are constantly changing.

What holds true is our core values. Our deepest beliefs define our identity. But where did they arise, and are they still serving us?

We all play roles in life.

Our own outcomes are subjective of our parents, our culture, and ourselves. As such, whether you are a success or a failure is subjective. Rather than judging whether you are a success or failure, try on a new truth: see yourself as the science experiment you are - like a program being run into a volatile environment, the outputs are most often unpredictable.

tells a scientest what Recognizing the error is what gives the scientest possible options t the scientest to fix. know this is When you are constantly inventing and discovering, you are bound to take a few missteps. From the creator orientation, there are no mistakes. Any result is possible, it's just a matter of time and experience.

Programming is part of the creative process, and we as living beings are the unfolding of creativity.

The creative process has 3 major phases:

Germination Assimilation Completion

First, the idea of the program is born (our parents begin with a single line of code). We then assimilate into life as we evolve into a conscious being. The assimilation phase is where we are right now.

Math and language

Programs would not function without math and language. Math allows us to define a unit, and language allows us to recall that unit.

Our lives therefore our defined in a large part by our use of use math and language.

The Tinkerer

Much of what brings me joy is the tinkering I do. It's the discovery of new possibilities that stem as a result of unexpected outcomes. From this perspective, the most exciting aspect of life is it's unpredictability. A boring life is one that is predictable.
