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.

Futures and Options III: Economics, Journalism, or Computer Science

I realise it's been a year since my previous post on this blog, and I've found myself having very little time to do another "brain dump" on the subject of my early choices in life. With that in mind (and as I'll be traveling again soon) I get to think a little more and reflect on a few of the things that have happened.

Much like the previous post, this one's set in high school -- where I was part of the swimming team, in a band, had been programming with Turbo Pascal, Java, and then C++ later on, and was about to make a choice that would literally change the course of my life. This one is about the choices I made, and the ones that were made for me.

Note: This is part 3 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts, as well as for your reading through this series!


Rant: Despair and Hopelessness

This weekend I had the chance to do a Google+ hangout with my father in the Philippines. He and I don't talk often but we do have a very good relationship. My dad is cool like that. In this hangout we talked about a few things happening in the Philippines and I've gotten the feeling that my homeland is getting ever deeper into economic disrepair, and that the politics to which I've come to be hopeless on is beyond repair. I've wanted to get something off my chest that's been bothering me for a while now, so if you would indulge me please read on.

Background

I grew up in a part of the Philippines where the land is fertile, there are thriving industries, and there's a certain sense of abundance and stability. This part of the Philippines has good schools, good employment opportunities (mostly industrial and service industries), good investment opportunities (real-estate and agricultural), and good potential for growth. This was true when I was young and this is tr…

Writing Again

It's 2019 and I just realised that I've not written on this blog for a long while. I feel a little bad about this so I'm picking it back up again. More importantly, I've limited my social media to just Twitter (I've deleted all my Facebook-related accounts) and will be writing more on the blog instead of engaging in other social media sites. If you want to reach me directly, you can also reach me through my keybase.io account for encrypted communication. If you have my phone number, you can also contact me through Signal. Quite a number of things have happened in the past few years and here's a quick update on things that I can share:

I've been working on XRay, a function call tracing system now part of the LLVM project. This took a good two and some years of my time at Google.Most recently I've moved to the Chrome Operations Team still here in Google Sydney. I can't give specifics yet of what I'll be working on, so stay tuned.There've been c…
