Understanding Myself


Understanding Myself 4 – From Randomness To Determinism


(This article isn’t about the scientific randomness or determinism.) Beliefs are important for human existence. We act as we believe. Now the theory of determinism and the randomness theory are very deep aspects which I won’t get into with this post what I want to convey here is that all of us fall either in the group of everything is random or everything happens for a reason which is...

It was all pretty great till a few months back and now its still good but its more random and the situations are getting tougher. The time is perfect for all this though.

About The Content

There are three kinds of blog posts here as of mid-2019 – The Journal, The Words and The Nudge.

The Journals are thoughts, lessons, events that unfold in my life word-for-word and as barebones as I can put them out there.

The Words are creative pieces, narratives, short-stories that take from my life but did not happen word-for-word.

The Nudge has self-help articles that try to be less proud and self-righteous. They end in the nudge, which is a shareable takeaway that summarises the entire idea.

You can read more about this change here and here.

I write code by day and prose by night. I'd say I love coffee but don't we all? I find stories, people and experiences. I blog about them.
