I just walked some 90 minutes around Matan, the hamlet where we live. And suddenly I thought something about Flow.
The definition of Flow is, basically, the speed at which items move through a given process combined with the number of items moving through said process. In short, the success of a system depends on the success of achieving the internally-definable goals (to a degree, of course), but I believe that in most cases the success of the system depends mainly on the achievement of internally-definable goals.
Of course, these are internally-definable, but they are interlinked with external relations of the system – not to be confused with self-set-targets.
Ook. Too much brain noise to write this out right now.

My daughter, R, underwent an operation (inserting tubes in the ears, removing huge adenoids) today. Too much happens at once, no?

Kant on Fear

October 23, 2011

“Kant’s opening paragraph of the essay [“What is Enlightenment?”] is a much-cited definition of a lack of Enlightenment as people’s inability to think for themselves due not to their lack of intellect, but lack of courage.”
