Knowledge: from observation to ideas

Watching guy

Knowledge is everywhere. Knowledge is information, and it can be gathered from literally anywhere. This information, this knowledge, can be obtained anywhere you look at, or use any other sense. That’s why it’s said that observation is a way to get information by the use of the senses and sometimes (introspection, or some sort), the use of out own minds.

So, being knowledge everywhere, could it be important to understand how it works? where does it come from? Obviously the answer is yes.

Why do you feel bad?

People can feel bad on a daily basis. You may be a lucky person a don’t feel bad in days… Or an unlucky person and feel bad every day, every hour. The thing is that we all usually feel bad in a daily basis. IT’s not that we get depressed, sad or alike, but something makes us feel, at least a little bit, bad.

Have you felt bad today? Possibly (not necessarily probable). That only means you are human, you’re a person and you understand that you can’t be ok with everything around you.

Creativity: it’s about taking care of your ideas, concentrating and time

Once people on different places talk about creativity, I always wonder if they have really thought about it. There are thousands of tips online. How to be creativity, they say. How can you explain to someone to be creativity. Either you are creative, or you are not.

But the thing here is to understand the “you are” doesn’t mean you, as a person, are, in general. The “you are” means you, right now, are or not, creative. So, in other words, it’s about time.

What is “perfectionism” to you?

Straight Perfection

If I told you to related that word to a personality, to a person… That person would probably be one that finds mistakes in everything: “The floor is too white”, “the paintings are not straight”, “the text has a mistake”. That sort of things are what you probably associate to a perfectionist.

I’m not going to say you’re wrong, but I just have a different concept; I take a different approach when I define myself as a perfectionist.

The new, redesigned, Mathias’ Blog

It’s been a while since I don’t publish a word on this blog. But hey, I have my reasons (getting accepted on my country’s best university is one =) ). Since I found myself letting my blog die slowly being forgotten and losing readers, I just needed to relaunch it, let it reborn or something with re- on it, because it wouldn’t be the first time. Yet, it would be the best, so far.

And what’s new? A completely new design, more elegant and stylish (what a word, huh?). What else? SEVEN new articles for you to read and pay my blog bills (that is, letting you starve from my content). Now, after the break, the list of articles that will be published in the next 6 days (7 days, total), one each day, first hour in the morning.

Complaining about something you don’t like?

Dislike button

Some time ago I wrote in my notebook “Change things to complain about by different things to complain about”. As almost always, it was in the night/morning time —I was sleepy—, and by the time I woke up the next day I forgot the meaning of that. It sadly happens a lot, but just few times I change the forgotten meaning to something else.

What’s the point of changing a state of being A by a state of being B, if you don’t like either? Sure, if state B is less bad than state A, why not, right? That was one of my thoughts deciphering the note. It was actually the idea behind writing it. But I don’t like it anymore, because I started thinking if that statement should make sense for two states of being, A and B, that are equally disliked. And it turns out it does.
