In other words, can you give me a real-life example of -2x-2 = 4, something along the lines of You have two apples, and your friend has four....
Please, this is driving me crazy.

you run and run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
racing around to come up behind you again
sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
of breath and one day closer to death
Unfairness, like gravity, is fundamental to the fabric of the universe. You fall, gravity or otherwise, good or bad. There is no escaping the laws.

A minute later she stops running and gives me a look usually reserved for Sitaram Yechuri and Sagarika Ghose. A few seconds later, she walks away in indignation.
A few minutes after the reason dawns on me. Repeated reference to what was misinterpreted as a mammalian characteristic.
Believe me, it was funny.

It's its people, rather their passion that puts me off. Give me a break, all ye delhi folks, and grow up. That includes you and a few people from my past. It's a city. Write poems about it, love it, feel nostalgic and home-sick, talk about it, but then, stop when the person next to you can take no more.

More so if they aren't yours.
Tiny strands of squiggly wiggly memories,
Each full with their own independent shades
of love, pain, lust and smiles
Memories that make little sense,
having passed through sieves of hypocrisy
And lives constructed
uut of these proxy memories
make you feel you haven't lived.
So, fuck you all
It's my life
and I'm going to Carpe Diem

Only yesterday, I was telling how more and more, physics feels like religion. Now, before ye asses pitch in and say But physics and religion are manifestations of the same entity, let's make it clear. They aren't. The only way in which they're related is that they aren't. Get that straight.
So, what is this unbecoming of science that we're talking about. Put literally, it's the semi-pseudo mysticism that has come to surround physics, making it sound like one of those verses from the vedas that sound really deep, but don't mean a shit.
When was the last time you were able to visualise anything in physics to a satisfactory degree? Electromagnetic waves? Gravity? Fluid dynamics? Uncertainty principle? Well, welcome to 20th century science. When you talk of the universe folding upon itself, of universe in twenty three dimensions, of tiny squiggles of energy making up the universe, and the way these things squiggle determining what particle it is, you get more lost than you were the first time you gave oral sex. It's not what you had imagined it to be.
Strong anthropic principle is another way of saying Don't ask questions. That's how things are. This is what all bad-breathed uncles tell their neices and nephews when they're asked - Is it tortoise all the way down?
Maths is the new tortoise
