From Darkness Into Light

From Darkness into Light

Bonded together are the opposites in our lives
Can one experience happiness without knowing sorrow?
Joy is but a moment between two sorrows
Joy and sorrow coexist in all planes of our life

Day is light and night is dark, you may say
Can one appreciate the bright light without knowing night?
Night, though dark, provides rest for our minds
Night and day coexist in all planes of our life

Nothing is permanent in this life of ours
Emotions and yearnings transient at best
What's good today may turn sour in the morrow
Good and bad coexist in all planes of our life

Born were we into the light of sun
Out of the darkness of our mothers womb
Who is to say which place is best
Both essential in the cycle of life

Endless can be this play of words be
What really is the issue at stake
When we yearn to move toward the light
What exactly do we mean by this.

Ignorance is nigh the cloak to be shed
Knowledge the added luster to be gained
If ignorance be the darkness and knowledge light
So too is our journey from darkness into light.

The Fundamental Theorem of Hari

The Fundamental Theorem of Hari

If I were a mathematical model,
A dynamic differential enigma I would be

Mind with limits to infinity plus infinity
Constrained by the equation of disability
Differentiate to optimize the formula of possibility
To produce the set of functions that maximizes me

Set of multivariable functions named Hari
Integrate the area under my mental capability
A smooth curve an impossibility, with denominator reality
Bumpy exponential curve and discontinuities, an inevitability

A rate of change of perpetuity
Seeking the Fundamental Theorem of Hari
Unresolved math model Hari
Waiting on solutions, estimations,.....
…...even approximations.
Data-mining mind neurons iteratively

A Case Study in the Neural Basis of Communication Challenges
by Hari Srinivasan - Thursday, December 1, 2016, 9:13 PM
Note: This chapter is frustratingly close to home for me as I am severely limited by both my expressive speech and almost very poor handwriting skills (along with other stuff). So I thought I would look at the concepts in this chapter in terms of a case-study of an impacted individual, namely me.
A Case Study in the Neural Basis of Communication Challenges
Hari S (hereafter referred to as H) is a college-going young adult, who was diagnosed with Autism at age 3. His was a case of regressive Autism in which infants who seem to develop typically and meet developmental milestones,  lose much of their language and other skills soon after the 18 month mark. H exhibits both speech and motor (writing) challenges. This report is an attempt to delineate H’s communication challenges along with the current scientific knowledge about their neural basis.

Winds of Change

Winds of change

Mangled Cognitive distortions
Oppressive muddy skies
Swallowed by emotional whirlpool
Lost anchor to the gentle breeze

Tornado rages on
No respite...
Blazing an unwanted path
OCDs gleely plunge in.
Anchor buffeted about

Login needed anon
Try, try, But how?
Drowning mind needs to stretch
An anchor out of reach
A tsunami at sea, tailspin

X Box and a Dog


I had a visit from my 2 delightful little cousins the last couple of days. 
Its been a few years since I saw both Kayva and Ananth.
Childhood is truly remarkable! What can I say but repeat Ananth's words.


X-Box and A Dog

Ananth:
“You are so Lucky!”
Says the little boy
“X box and a Dog!”
Basics of Life!

Six years and counting…
Innocence. Simplicity.
Satisfaction guaranteed
If Minecraft is thrown in.

Material world is finite
Needs easily  fulfilled
Flourishing neural pathways
Makes the circle complete

Kavya:
In between, the Tween
Talented little girl
Jewelry and baubles
Decorate her self

Multicolor watches
A passion for cars
But that does not stop
From being Big Sis Boss


Lots of Hugs and Kisses from Big Bro Hari

Red Moon

What an amazing Total Lunar Eclipse Tonite. The press have dubbed it Supermoon, with the Full Moon closest to earth, at its perigee. 

Why a  Red Moon -  the Red is due to the Earth's atmosphere (Rayleigh scattering). 
The earth's atmosphere bends sunlight that passes through it. But only longer wavelenghts of light (red) are able to pass through the earth's atmosphere to reach the moon. The shorter wavelengths (blue) are absorbed/scattered by atmosphere. 

A rare phenomena not to be repeated till 2033. 

On the basics of Solar & Lunar Eclipses

Time to Recalculate - Your Zodiac Slipped

We are all aware of the 12 Zodiacs Signs which are basically the 12 constellations in our sky. Ancient astrologers arrived at these 12 zodiacs based on calculations of their view of the sky during their times.

Our view of the sky has changed since - in fact we now have 13 Zodiacs. There is a new constellation called Ophiuchus.

The zodiac you knew all along could just be off by a month or you could be in a brand new zodiac too. How about that?

Life Happens

Life Happens

Merrily we row life's boat.
90 years, average life expectancy.
Life is a dream, Mother Goose says.
It's a clear path up ahead.
Row along merrily, a great quest.


An avalanche plunges our way.
Boulders bury. They trap. They pen.
What just happpened?
Life happened!
Tsunami of Disability.
Reality!


Can the quest for solutions ever end?
Never, answers the mind.
Emotions and the sensory body are sinkholes enroute.
Mind urges...
take detours, challenge the sinkholes, we must persevere.
have to travel possibilities, open opportunities, and pave new roads.


Life Happens!
We have decades of life still left
...to think, to act
The  quest for solutions can never end.
