Sclorch's Graph of Life (v. 3.4a)
    #1657661 - 06/24/03 04:00 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)



Life is (partly) an asymptotic approach to the unattainable.

that reminds me of a quote, by huraki murakami, my favourite author:

"Humans are immortal in their thought. Though strictly speaking, not immortal, but endlessly, asymptomatically close to immortal. Thats eternal life."

cool.
kind of like the inverse of the 2012 concept:
progress as a function of time, 2012 as the asymptote

but I think it is exponential, not parabolic.
of course, we can't tell at this stage of the game...

2012.2012.......reverse-motion processing...

It is a conspiracy, I am pretty sure.... something to do with Microsoft, Senator Hatch, and the RIAA...

In my original reply, I was being somewhat serious... There are always going to be catostrophic events that will insert uncertainty into your graph. In a way, these can help bounce a society/population out of a local minimum.

Bought a hawaiian shirt at Ross today. You know - the kind with garish floral patterns and palm trees that even a tourist wouldn't wear. Total came to $20.12. Coincidence or the end of the world as we know it?

The proof is in the pudding.

Interesting graph concept however I would have oriented it this way as the early development is slow to the approach and rapidly reaches the asymtote limit

I feel we aproach the asymtote later in life rather than earlier.
interesting concept but hardly an acurate graph of the actual progresion of advancement but an excellent template or generalization.

Yes, I know it was a generalization, but you all get the point, right?

You know what I just noticed. So many supposedly enlightened minds here and yet there hasn't been anything great to come out of all the big ol discussions where you divulge the secrets of the universe. Instead everything ends with a *thud*.

Ever noticed that?

That graph is incorrect. The line should be merged with the dotted asymptote.

Haha yes, it's an unapproachable line on a graph. Let me rephrase that then: The graph should depict the solid line straight across IN PLACE of the asymptote.

Wise guy. :smirk:

No... I got it right.
Only an egotist would actually think they could merge with or cross the asymptote of the unattainable.

Now you're missing my point. Everything is already perfect and complete. The unattainable does not exist, because it is just that: unattainable. There is no reason to reach for perfection or completeness because you're already there. If you are reaching, you're trying to get someplace that doesn't exist, which is... impossible.

Edit: Here's a better explanation: It's like a blind man being inside a house while wanting to get inside the house. "Goddamnit let me in!" as he stands in the kitchen of the house. He's already there, but no one is around to tell him.

I suppose I'm referring to the common concept of perfection and completeness.  However, survival, is most definitely unattainable in the end... no matter how you look at it. :wink:
