### The meaning of Life rev2

Just a few days ago, there was this article on parallel universes. Let me now explain why I think we are all numbers.

You will understand this article if you are aware of how they are represented using the binary notation. If you're not the mathematical kind, just try to follow the non-geeky explanation.

It also might give you an idea why I think the inverse of infinity is not zero, but a number which doesn't exist, called the no-number.

First, there was no-number. And then it splits into the alternative, the number.

Then were two numbers: 0 and 1. 0 represented non-existence, 1 represented life.

When we say that non-existence is there, I'm saying it doesn't exist, but things do go on in there, but they'll never be like us because they don't exist.

I believe the next division occurred when God was there and life existed, and wasn't. Again, 0 and 1.
Now we have three numbers:

1 <- Life
01 <- Life without God
11 <- Life with God

Now, it basically goes on, adding 0s and 1s to the left hand side of this number when or not an event occurred.

How do we represent numbers which have three states? (And not two or four)?

if (-)
else if(--)
else

The answer is, split the three states as this:

if(-)
else {
if(--)
else
}

i.e. 0, 1.

add 1 or 0 to the left of this 0, and we get:

10
00

the 11 is not taken, we shall ignore this. but doesn't this contradict that there must be exactly
3 possible states? Which means all things always happen or don't happen. There's nothing which never can happen (11).

So, constructing our life as a number leads us to this:

Our universe exists, where we realize its existence and where we apply this theory of existence to it, and I exist, I blog, and you exist and you're reading this.

Therefore, this leads us to construct various universes where many things don't happen/happen, and in the non-existent plane as well.

Of course, there could be a particular order in which the divisions occurred, but it is possible to construct more views of universes by simply changing the order of these divisions.

Infinity is the number of universes that exist, and the no-number is what makes it possible, and not zero. When it itself split into a number and no-number, came the large number of universes. The number became infinity. If there were not enough numbers at all, 0/1 would be the theoretical equivalent of infinity, which isn't really a no-number.

Ever thought of what numbers are? They are empty, different states theoretically possible just like we are.

Some implications (non geeky part):

1. Either you read this, or you don't, but not here.

2. If you're poor here, maybe you're wealthier elsewhere.

3. You exist here, and you don't elsewhere.

4. You're forking the universe into many different states when you toss a coin (and if it lands on heads or tails, or on none, or lands on both.)

5. You think I am crazy here, and you don't elsewhere.

Very intellectual post Karthik. Could follow the analogy.

### Is Free Software really Free? (A case of Google Android and Java)

Update: Google has open sourced Android and I will take back what I said. If you still wish to read the post, you may do so.

A lot of people have asked me why anybody would want free software, because there is no support or commercial licensing usually. Let me define what free is supposed to mean: "The freedom given to a user to execute the program; to modify the source code, compile and execute the modified program; to be able to redistribute the modified source code and the modified program."

We are not here to discuss if everybody is giving you a false free software promise, or if being "good" is essential for our life, but only to discuss a particular false software promise by organizations like Sun and Google.

Let us take a classic example: the Java platform. While Sun has been (for years) trying to free Java, they still can't push in just enough to make it completely free. And when they did GPL their OpenJDK (which at the moment, is probably mostly unhinder…

### The Lazy Life ...

... a.k.a. I'm Lovin' It!

My typical day begins at 10 AM. I wake up, and mom makes the bestestestest filter coffee! Then bath, then eat (mmm.. BURP!). Then TV+siesta! Then go out. Then come back, eat dinner (uff.. mommah, i'm becomin' a baloon!) TV+Sleep. What a busy schedule!

When it comes to food, I never complain at home. My mom's been an ACE COOK, and have never stopped relishing her food. I am eternally thankful to the almighty for the same.

Mention TV and think CAS. CAS is the root of all evil. FTA channels are ohhkayy, but I'm missing out on all those nice movies and soaps thanks to CAS. Have started tuning to VH1... It's cool, plays some wonderful music. and no CRAP! So, there was this show called The Fabulous Life of the Hilton Sisters .. I was all like: "Wow! These two are this spoilt that they decided to make a whole series out of it!" but then, some time later, after watchin J-Lo's fabulous life, I decided that the Hilton sisters wer…

### King Size Life

Last weekend was AWESOME!!

This Saturday, myself and Sandeep went to Adlabs IMAX, the only IMAX Dome theater in India. There are only three IMAX theatres in India, the other two being in Hyderabad and Ahmedabad respectively (both are flat IMAX 3D theatres). There, in the gaming arcade, we zipped on a nice bouncy ride in Thrillarium, in a short film called "Mazy Mine". Then we got to play a real game of Pong, and we tied at 6 each. Then after a quick bite, we went to see Robots.

First, we were overwhelmed by the IMAX (Think big) experience. IMAX supposedly features a projection system that's very powerful that it can use the moon as a screen, and a sound system that delivers a whopping 12KW of power output; Cool! We were greated by an intro IMAX movie of A. R. Rahman'sMaa, Tujhe Salaam ... it filled us with an immense sense of national pride to see our tricolor on the magnificent dome screen.

Second, we loved the movie. The story features a young robot named Sparky who…
