For no particular reason...

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I've found a resaon for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You [x4]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

Expanding horizons...

Went out last weekend, originally looking for a camcorder, didn't find one I liked...guess I need to do some more R&D before actually getting one.

But I did not return empty handed. I went down to Carrefour and bought myself GTA- San Andreas. Not that I hate the game, but I am dissappointed...okay this will be another post someday.

Besides that, I also got me an External Hard Disk. 200GB of space. This feels GOOD. No more deleting stuff just because I run out of space. Hah, thats history now.

So what did I do? Moved about 25GB of music, F.R.I.E.N.D.S season 10 + specials, some 2-3 GB of softwares, and what not to the new disc. My laptop now has..."Free Space"...kewl.

More later.

Relative Reality...

Taken forward from a previous discussion...

Real, is just a word. But what is real? How do you know that what you think is real is just something that has been preceived as real and is actually not?

Look at the mirror. What do you see? An image of yourself right? But is it just so simple? Is the mirror showing you just what you are or are you perceiving the image in the mirror as something you recognize? As something you know? What if the mirror just shows you something that you cannot perceive and what you see is just how your brain, based on the available information, decides to interpret it? Imagine looking at something that you do not know what is? How do you decide then? Say, a baby looks at the mirror and sees something? It cannot interpret it as something that is in its knowledge, simply because the knowledge it has is limited at that point. So it looks for explanations. And the closest to what it can be, based on logic and reasoning, is that what it is can be explained by someone who already knows this phenomenon. And so it is interpreted as a "Reflection of self".

The fundamental interpretation here is but flawed. No one actually knows what the mirror does? People just interpret it based on logic and reasoning. And that logic and reasoning comes from information acquired by someone who has encountered this phenomenon already. What if someone were to see something other than themselves in the mirror? What then? It seems hard to believe that this can happen, but is it not already? Is it not actually happening?

We have senses that have evolved over the ages. These senses define how we perceive the world around us. What if tommorrow, someone with a hightened sense, discovers that what our feeble senses pereceive is not actually the correct intertpretation. It is flawed. Just like our eyes can see the stars, but that does not mean that the universe is just that. It just means that our senses are limited in their capability to interpret information. And that if the senses were augmented in some way, there is not telling how the workd would look like?

So again, what is real?

Shadows in the Darkness

Silence, oblivious silence...but then noises...voices...echoes...from the past...present and the future...I cannot think...I cannot concentrate...there is a rush...no time...Seems like this is the end of it all...the end of time...

Nothing can be more terrifying...more threatening than things inside that can come out...and manifest into events...into beings of impractical might...an uncontrollable force...that gathers merriment and devours it...

I cannot fight them...for they are me...they came from within me...but now they threaten my very existence...Is there a way ? Is there some way ?

Not enough of this...

Over the weekend...we were watching FRIENDS, Season 8 on Saturday and a part of Sunday...Season 9 on remaining Saturday and yesterday...The last one in Season 9 finished with Joey and Rachel kissing...and that was all we had...We had gone through Seasons 8 and 9 and we still were not satisfied...we wanted to see the 10th season.

But as luck would have had it...we hadn't brought any Season 10 DVDs from the library...damn...but there was a way...

I turned to my trusty laptop for help...A 1 mbps line, Two hours and an evening with Morpheus later...I had almost the entire Season 10 on my laptop.

Then was Nero time, burn the first two episodes onto a CD-RW and presto !!!

We managed to watch the first two episodes of Season 10...

It was by that time we realised that it was time to call it a day...enuf technology for a day...not enuf of FRIENDS though...only if the next day was not a working day...
