its really hard to take anything seriously when considering the size of the universe
I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
you’re so right
thank you so much for opening my eyes
at all of these
maybe all of those bumps and lines on their bodies are just a side effect from the lack of protein????? scary.
Math. You should start getting a good intuitive grasp of the mathematical concepts that are the foundation of everything in physics. So many people do not know how valuable math is and how all the technologies in our world are dependent on a deep understanding of mathematics. Physics is very similar in this regard.
In high school I often heard people say “this math is useless, I am never going to need this” and then they started to develop a disdain for it. Don’t be one of those people, take all the math classes you can! Try to at least learn some calculus before you go off to college (and also take physics, but only after you have taken enough math. In college you will begin to take the physics classes that are more specific to your area).
To those people who question the importance of math I would say: Thanks to our understanding of math you are able to sit in an air conditioned room, have food quickly served to you, live in a stable house, drive machines, have running water, have electricity, and the list goes on and on. I would argue that everything in math has a practical and useful application, if anyone thinks they can stump me on this I accept the challenge (haha, this could be fun)!
As Carl Sagan once said: “We’ve arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.” ― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark
All of the luxuries we take for granted in our modern society were made available thanks to a deep understanding of mathematics and the natural world. Start developing an appreciation for math and you will be on the right path! (there is a great youtube channel called numberphile I recommend you check out, link here)
Thanks for the ask, I’m glad you like my blog! DFTBA
(I would have liked to crop some of these gifs (like the accent ones) to make them more accurate but alas, I lack the skills.)
A bit of personal trivia: a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away … I attended Catholic University of America as a Music Education and Performance double major.
