the butterfly dream

once i, Chuang Tzu, dreamed i was a butterfly and was happy as a butterfly. i was conscious that i was quite pleased with myself, but i did not know that i was Tzu. suddenly i awoke,and there was i, visibly Tzu. i do not know whether it was Tzu dreaming that he was a butterfly or the butterfly dreaming whether it was Tzu dreaming that he was a butterfly or the butterfly dreaming that he was Tzu. between Tzu and the butterfly there must be some distinction (but one may be the other). this is called the transformation of things.”


quoted from Chuang Tzu, a contemporary of Mencius

within the human state of affairs there can present to us a flurry of oppositional and contrasting differences to what is the human condition and understanding of self, perhaps especially so when applying what is tangible to believe and what is not. 

there can and is the temptation to get caught up and stuck in all manner of such interests.  at a certain point of view what could be said of this is simply that it’s the mind moving (its process to interpret a world of possibilities and human transformation).

 a Chi Square is only as valid as the variable values collected, there again it’s already limited when describing parameters in the form of squares.

anyone of us who is willing to say our way is the only way is most likely offending opportunity.

if there is a probability then there’s a possibility and if there’s a possibility then it may have happened somewhere, some how and some place already. in truth I don’t know the absolute of it. bayes theorem is perhaps useful, but i doubt the equation as a whole.

i met a butterfly

i met a butterfly resting on a cold metal guttering and so i gently placed and cusped it in the palm of my hands.  i blew into my palms as if to warm it and as i widened a handful gap it fluttered upwards around my head then gradually settled on my right shoulder.  i spoke to it with thanks and away it went. the sentiment felt was simple ‘with caring warmth we can greatfully receive”.
