Emotions vs Ratio

There’s no positivity without negativity

Recently, a friend made the comment above. She also said those feelings are like Yin and Yang. After a brief reflection, I realised its validity. Before, I had assumed those feelings were like waves, entering and exiting my life. Nevertheless, my cycle and waves concept still fits the Wiki description below: “Yin and yang, also yinyang or yin-yang, is a...

Vera (TV series)

Recently, I finally started watching season 1 (2011) of Vera, a TV series rated at 8.1 on IMDb. My rating is a 9. Soon, I'll start watching season 12 (2023) of 14 (2025).

The resulting diagram (below) is probably the one that failed to materialise during the past several months. Finally, a certain situation is making sense to me. Most of the time, I’m in the right upper corner of my diagram above (ie, Hope)....

Facts, opinions, and (un)learning

For many humans, it's difficult to separate facts from (false) opinions. Moreover, the internet is full of (false) opinions, while it's (probably) the main database for machine learning. Hence, machine unlearning will have - at least - similar challenges as humans, and/but probably much bigger ones. I use doubt to separate facts from (false) opinions. I verify...
