Logic v/s Robots

Unemotional calculating humans cannot be labeled machines. Machines are passive mechanical beings with no thought or initiative. They are fed Instructions and perform programmed tasks, after which they spew out results. Cold calculating people can instead be designed as sentient intelligence, transcending humanity to another level. Self-awareness without emotion. if you will.

Why am I talking about this? A lot of writers in fiction, whether it be books, T.V. or movies seem to make this mistake all the time.

Yes, it's quite presumptuous of me to claim that they're wrong and I'm right. But this just irks me. It's a popular topic, and many writers just jump on the 'in-thing' bandwagon without doing any research.

Look up MB-TI websites and read about personality types and their multiple variations. They are explained simply enough. If bored teenagers and employees can do it. So can you.

Read Asimov & at the very least, please. Spock is not Data.

Broken Elevator

Not one of quite one of my Pictogram series.
Think of it as a Conceptual album cover.

That's a girl in a overalls and a toolbelt, wearing a welders's mask.

Drawn in a pen and scanned. Edited in photoshop.

Third in my series of Pictograms and Photo series.

The radioactive icon.


Bilingual Bonus in German:
It means Poisonous, Toadstool poisonous.

Second in my series of Pictograms and Photo combo.
I thought I'd make the second one minimalist in contrast to the first one.

Btw, that's my coffee cup at work.

Neil Gaiman in his Essay Some Strangeness in the Proportion: The Exquisite Beauties of Edgar Allan Poe has this to say.

Read the poems aloud. Read the stories aloud. Feel the way the words work in your mouth, the way the syllables bounce and roll and drive and repeat, or almost repeat. Poe’s poems would be beautiful if you spoke no English (indeed, a poem like “Ulalume” remains opaque even if you do understand English — it implies a host of meanings, but does not provide any solutions). Lines which, when read on paper, seem overwrought or needlessly repetitive or even mawkish, when spoken aloud reshape and reconfigure.

(You may feel peculiar, or embarrassed, reading aloud; if you would rather read aloud in solitude I suggest you find a secret place; or if you would like an audience, find someone who likes to be read to, and read to him or to her.)

The same thing happened to me when I read Poe’s poem “The Raven”. But I digress.

Poetry is usually not my thing. I don’t read things out loud. Reading is a solitary activity for me.

But not in this case. I had no audience. But the poem simply demanded to be read out loud. Now I see on of my favourite authors writing the same thing about Poe.

Funny huh.

Pictograms are universally recognized signs across the world.

I snapped of this pic when I was in Delhi last year, for work related reasons. The restaurant is caleed "Punjab by Nature". Photoshop CS3 was used.

As usual can be found here.

This is the result.

The mindscape of a person who is inflexible in his or her views of what's right and wrong can get a little...twisted.
