time

being in a place where you are who you are, and at a time when later is now, makes it evident that you are one and all. being able to see who you really are, where you're really at, and know what you really know is the essence of being alive.

taking time like it is a luxury escapes me as a concept because it really is something that you don't spend. you merely wade through it, like the sea that surrounds all land. time is that which holds everything in place and everyone attached. time keeps everything flowing, and continuity is always welcome to those who seek to live.

everyone has his or her own being, that which who he or she alone knows. this being is not necessarily what others would like to see, and most of the time fail to see. to be someone that you are is something as essential as time to determine who you are now, and later.

being yourself, and your being is one and the same. this is what time keeps in place at any given continous moment that you wade through time.

however, time is something that is yet to be used for anything. the concept and framework on which time apparently operates on, makes it a mere tool and not an entity nor phenomenon. the measure of time lacks the proper calibration to make it a true and unified concept. the material implications of time, the concept that it is, have yet to manifest themselves.

for without the concept of time, everything is here and now. without the concept of time that it is currently, makes it impossible to gauge everything that depends upon it. the rigid structures built upon such a foundation like time will always be dependent on the mechanisms that define its foundation.

the concept of time however, is immaterial and thus abstract. however the human mind has come up with an arbitrary concept such as that is a puzzle. but the brilliance of which is astonishingly simple. but even so, that which is very conceptually abstract is yet to be found inconclusive, and shall until that time comes be conceptually sound.

as long as time is immaterial, and that we ourselves cease to see that, we shall live through life like it was all a structured and rigid phenomenon. however, if we start looking at life like it were something that made sense and that wich existed as a fact and not a consequence of some other fact, we may be able to discover how everything is everything, and that later is now.

seeing and believing that time flows will allow us to live like we are part of something. being part of something makes us one with ourselves and everything around us. being aware of this is being aware of yourself. to be able to become yourself, you have to embrace everything that surrounds you, and wade through time with that which you have discovered. and to be able to do so is something one can achieve only by being that which you shall find when you are yourself.

From FOMO to JOMO

Until very recently I believed that I needed to be on top of the latest news and happenings not only in my field (computer science and software engineering) but also in as many things as I can be on top of. This meant subscribing to all sorts of magazines, newsletters, YouTube channels, Twitch streamers, watching TV and live sport events, etc. — I was on top of a lot of the latest happenings, trends, news, interesting developments. I was having fun and I felt busy. What I did not feel was particularly effective nor productive. I felt like I was consuming so much information with the thought that it might be useful someday. When I was younger this wouldn’t have been an issue but I realised that ever since I’ve started taking stock of what I’ve been spending my time on, that a lot of it I’ve been spending just staying on top of things that I really didn’t need to be on top of. This article is about some of the realisations I’ve made in the course of exploring this issue of “FOMO” or th…

Futures and Options I: My Introduction to Computing

I've recently been thinking about how my decisions early in life have done me good to put me where I'm at right now. I've certainly lived a very fortunate life -- been blessed with so many good things and been down-right lucky being at the right place at the right time. My 30 year journey to where I am now has been very interesting. I can pretty much say that the experiences I've had up to this point have very much contributed to making me who I am -- and that I regret nothing. Still though I keep thinking about what my life would be like if I hadn't made certain choices I did make throughout the years. There are a few choices I've made that I've stuck to and I keep thinking about wondering "what if I made a different choice instead" -- and the more I think about it, the more I'm happy about the decisions I've made.

Note: This is Part 1 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. If you're intere…

Futures and Options II: Exchange Student

Flash back to 1998, I was a junior in high school in the Philippines. I would have been at the equivalent of 9th grade in the US educational system at age 15. At this point in my life I had been given one of the best opportunities to experience a whole new culture and lifestyle. I had a chance to be an exchange student in middle America for one full year. This post is about how passing up this opportunity changed my life more than I would have ever known at the time.

Note: This is Part 2 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. If you're interested, please stay tuned to the next parts as I go through them. Thanks for reading!

The Rotary Club

Back during those days my parents had been invited to be part of the Rotary Club in the small town we lived in. There were various kinds of people who were in the club -- writers, businessmen, professionals (lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc.). My parents are businessmen who had very little in the way of…
