KDaddy’s General Observations: 100 Questions (49 Through 64)

30 Jul

Halfway through the 100 questions and the thing that’s been sticking in my mind is… who came up with them and why…

49. Do you hold yourself to higher standards than you hold others?

Yeah, sure I do but not so high that things become unreachable for myself; I believe in working smarter, not harder and if there are standards that I can’t reach, how can I expect someone else to be able to?

50. What do you expect from a friend or partner?

I expect them to be themselves; anything else is unrealistic and it’s one of life’s lessons that one should learn and the sooner, the better for one and all.

51. What question could you ask to find out the most about a person?

Depends on the person. In my younger days, I learned that I could find out a lot about a person by asking them about… sex. Generally speaking. Sometimes, it wasn’t what they said but what they didn’t say that would tell me a lot about them and that included paying attention to their body language. These days, there are too many questions I could think of that can be tailored to find out whatever I wanted to know about someone other than the one I just mentioned.

52. Do you justify all your beliefs or have you just inherited/absorbed some?

Yet another interesting question. I learned that humans can justify anything they do or say and being able to justify my beliefs is just what everyone does… but I also learned that what I believe might not be the truth of things so it’s not so much justifying my beliefs but trying to verify them or if I believe X, what is the basis for believing it and would I really be justified in believing X? I probably inherited and/or absorbed some beliefs and more likely when I was growing up but later discarded them or debunked them.

53. Which beliefs to you have that is most likely to be wrong?

*Should be “Which beliefs do you have that are mostly likely to be wrong?”*

The answer is I don’t know, and I wouldn’t know until I had reason to question a belief. I have accepted that anything I know – and that which I may believe – could be wrong but it’s not wrong until it’s proven to be wrong.

54. Can humans really understand the complete nature of the universe, space and time?

We’re trying to and our understanding is increasing every day using the tools we invented/created for the express purpose of trying to understand the universe, space and even time.

55. Is a conscious that makes someone a person?

Yeah, because there’s no other explanation that I’m aware of. Cognito ergo sum – I think, therefore, I am. The “bad” part is that we don’t know why we are conscious and that’s because we still don’t really know how our brains work.

56. What do you think about artificial intelligence?

As a computer scientist, I think it’s pretty cool and despite all the horror stories about an AI deciding to make humans extinct. We have AIs now and as developed by IBM, Microsoft, and others and most people are totally unaware of what they do when doing something as ordinary as searching the Internet for something. People have been worried about an AI taking over the world and I hate to tell you that computer systems have already done that and if you have a cellphone, there you have it.

57. Do you think humans are obsessed with escapism (books, video games, movies, etc.)? Are you looking for an escape? Do you think it’s a bad thing?

I don’t think we are so much obsessed as it is just a thing we do since, realistically, the only way to escape life is to not be alive. We have an inherent need to keep our minds occupied and stuff like going to school and working tends to occupy our minds a lot so “escaping” the day-to-day rat race stuff by doing something other than rat race stuff makes sense. I read, play video games, listen to music, etc., and I’m not escaping anything so much as I’m doing things I love to do when I’m not doing the stuff I’m supposed to be doing. If reading books is an obsession, I’m seriously guilty of being obsessed but I think “obsessed” is too harsh a word to be used in this context.

58. Are we eventually going to ‘run out’ of new combinations for music, art, language, etc.? Is there a limit to human creativity?

If there’s a limit, we’re not aware of it so, as such, I don’t think we’re going to run out of these things any time soon.

59. What do you think the next era of music will be like?

I’m a musician and I don’t know the answer to this. I think it’s more about how we listen to music that’s really changing and us looking for a more immersive and, perhaps, interactive experience when we listen to music. There can be new genres and styles as well as new ways to perform music and as technology is able to provide but I have no idea what a next era will be like.

60. What do you think the next era of fashion will be like?

I don’t much care about fashion but what I’ve been seeing in the here and now makes me wonder if designers need medication and therapy…

61. Do we live in tumultuous times, or do they just seem so strange because we’re living in them?

I think that depends on what one believes, like the many people I’ve heard say that we’re fulfilling Revelations’ prophecy of the end of the world happening and Jesus Christ is on his way. Having said that, humans have always lived in tumultuous times because we’re responsible for creating them.

62. Would you want to meet a clone of yourself? Would you like them?

I used to wish that I had a twin and wonder what it would be like to look at someone who looks just like you but is also different because we all experience things differently. There are so serious ethical things about cloning – only God can create life and we’re not gods so we shouldn’t be doing that – but we have the technology to do it – we’ve cloned animals like cows and sheep – and if I were to meet my clone, well, maybe I’d like them or not and depending on how our experiences are different.

63. How confident are you?

That depends on what you mean by asking the question – what’s the context? I am supremely confident in myself because why wouldn’t I be? One of life’s lessons is that if you lack confidence, you don’t have anything.

64. How consistent is your perception of time?

Since I’m now old enough to have to put up with tests of my cognitive abilities, my time sense gets tested and I’m pretty consistent – I’m usually off by a couple of minutes when I get tested… but there’s some interesting theories about time itself and whether it’s a real thing or something we “created” to be able to interact with our environment. We know what time is and can take it down to picoseconds and femtoseconds but our perception of it can be different based on what we’re observing, how we’re observing it, and when we are.

But, yeah, that’s what watches and calendars are for, so I don’t have to be all that consistent.

I think this is it for the day… maybe.
