The meaning of Life

At last! I've discovered it. At least I think I do.

I didn't run butt-naked on the streets shouting "Eureka!", but it was nevertheless, a realization for me. Before I tell you the meaning of life, a few words:


  1. The whole world runs on faith. If you have faith in my words, it shall probably make you a happier person. I'm not asking for money, or anything. I'm not asking you to ditch your religion or culture. I'm not asking you to do anything exotic. All I need is just your faith. With that, this might be the religion of the future.
  2. I'm not promising you a better life, or anything for that matter. You may probably get peace of mind if you follow what I say, or anything, or nothing as far as that goes.
  3. This information is being passed as-is and without any warranty of any kind. So if you don't find what you're looking for, DON'T SUE ME.
  4. I could as well put the whole propaganda into a book, into TV, advertise it online.. Whatever. I'm not going to do that. A blog is the perfect place for it to be: the best things in the world come for free.
  5. You aren't probably going to get eternal salvation after reading this.
  6. You may probably have known it, but you thought it was meaningless.
  7. If you are just looking for plain old fun, read it. ;)
  8. If you think that I've gone mad, keep your thoughts to yourself.
  9. If you don't like any of this, don't do anything. But, If you want to pass this on, for ridicule or otherwise, you are free (and welcome!) to do so.




The meaning and purpose of life, our very existence is: to endure it. That's right: No other reason. We can't get away from the shackles of existence, till we die. Though it may sound religious, it's true that we are reborn again, and again, and again.


We aren't born to accomplish anything. We were born with absolutely no work in hand. Because accomplishment was never meant to be static. As you accomplish something, you go on.. that's what happens in life. There are lots of things happening in life and you know that. But you don't know all of what's happening out there. As you try to learn, more things crop up;


But life never changes. It evolves constantly. But then, we get trapped into thinking that we are supposed to be working towards betterment, which we already are into doing. So this doesn't mean that you stop innovating, but it means that it's time we looked back into what we were meant to do. The more we want to get involved in the real world, the more we think, the more we worry, the more we struggle and the more we think of doing it, the more we get whipped by the lashes of ignorance.


Do your job, love people, work hard, be right, be creative! That's the secret of enduring existence. Good luck!

The whole picture is.. even if you don't do any work and rot, it wouldn't matter.

I'm not planning to be a sanyasi. Because there's no point in being a sanyasi; That's not the only way to self-realization.

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…

Simulations, Universes and Possibilities

There has been a lot more thought now on why our universe is nothing more than a sophisticated video game.

I have often thought about it as such, and I have likened light to be the medium of energy and information transfer in our Universe. I would think gravity and forces were caused by light information travelling to particles, causing them to move accordingly.


Now, according to me, it is hard to go back in time and jump into the future, expecting the Universe to compute all of these events quickly enough. Why, you may ask? Because it indeed takes a long time to compute your own life, one dependency at a time and one living entity at a time. Otherwise, Life would only be throwing coarsely accurate but completely random events at us than the true, perfectly accurate simulated future.




Now, time is pretty relative to who computes it. There are some frames in life, where when nobody's observing anything, the Universe could go on a rampage and advance our timelines rapidly. On t…

Staring into the Abyss

Automation is the new buzzword. People are losing jobs like crazy. The hunger games have started  and now everyone is being forced to feed the croniest capitalists in the world. The beautiful gig economy has lost its sheen and has turned into nothing but a mere bargaining game in every market.

So where does that leave us? Into the abyss of irrelevance.


The abyss of irrelevance: Where many people need not work, many people need not apply and yet they will be forced to work because most common resources would have been squatted on by the rich and the powerful.

For every economy that needs a person to make and sell, we have a machine. But who is going to buy it? Another machine?

Is Communism is going to show it's head again? It will be interesting to watch.
