Magic and Love Deception

Posted: November 30, 2018 in Personal

Magic is deception. That might be stating the obvious but I am making a connection to the deception of magic and people being deceived in other ways. We marvel at how a human being can go off when they find out that a partner has deceived them. If we think about this for a while, we would see that that kind of deception and the one related to magic is pretty much similar.

When a magic trick is done, we grapple with that, “how did that happen moment.” As kids, most times, we don’t even try to rationalize it. We take it as simply magic. Something that happened that we can’t explain. As we grow older, more matured, we ask more questions of magic. “How is this possible?” We refuse to believe that what we saw, really happened. There must have been some trick, deception to it, but we can’t explain it. We usually end up bugging the performer as to how they did it. It will drive us crazy if we don’t find out. In the end, as adults we simply take it as, it must have been a trick because it certainly didn’t happen for real.
The more logically you think, the more difficult it is to accept.
Deception is similar in the sense that you see it happen but you have a hard time trying to come to terms with what you saw. The more logical you think, the harder it is to accept.  At that moment, you are looking for answers, but just like a magic trick, you can’t explain it and so you demand response, answers, to rationalize it. It is not just logic that is at play though; it is that complicated emotion, love. Then that messes with your head even more than just the magic trick. The release of oxytocin makes you desire affection and deception messes with the affection a person so badly craves. The broken bond can be devastating.
Like magic, it is easier to acknowledge that it was a trick that you will not be able to rationalize and then move on instead of spending time trying to make sense of it. That can lead to serious consequences. In the heat of the moment, it is those emotions one gets that causes violent responses.  It would be better if we simply react the way Sheldon reacts, a fluttering of his eyes, when he could not explain how Howard and Raj teamed to deceive him with a magic trick. That kind of kind can’t rationalize it because of his non belief in magic.
I don’t know if you can say that one deception is more devastating than the other.

Why I am sticking with the IPad Pro.

Posted: November 26, 2018 in Personal

There are so many comparisons between the two. I have plans to purchase one but i keep switching between the two almost everyday.

I am an IPad Pro person by the way but looking to upgrade. I have finally decided that must stay with the IPad Pro because as much as the Surface Pro boast a full Windows 10 experience, hence making it close to desktop experience, there is one deal breaker. It doesn’t seem to run java program.

You might ask, why do I need java? I purchase these devices to help with work flow. The Report Card Program for my school needs a constantly upgraded java program to work. Now I know IPad doesn’t support java either so I depend on my MacBook for that. It would be way more convenient to complete this arduous task if i had a tablet that could do the job. This is where the idea to go Surface Pro came up but sadly that bubble burst when I found out that it could not run java. So I will stick with the iPad Pro until either Microsoft can support java on it flagship tablet. Another possibility is that my school board changes the program so java is no longer needed. then the IPad Pro will have added statusin my work flow.

 

Parking in the parking lot.

I don’t get it. Why is it that when you park in an almost empty parking lot, the next person coming in decides to park right beside you even to the point of squeezing you in. I need to add that the place where you park is not even the closest to the store. Phew!

This is just a test to see if Google will actually rant this page. Lemmon gun paragraph is a great page.
Lemmon is good. Gun is bad but paragraphs are fabulous.

It looks like a neat app.

I have been away too long. I have just been looking at some of the iPad apps they have for photo retouching. I have come to realize that Photoshop, the real software isn’t all that necessary anymore.

I will be sharing my thoughts about this some more as I go along. There are some amazing apps out there that does the same things. Now compare the price. Adobe better move with the times.
