Well..seems like I eventually moved from the "Student" occupation to "Working" (and also my getting rare on blogging).

As u the title might suggest, I've joined work. Am currently working at Enterprise Data Services Ltd, at Rose Hill. Although my job title is not yet confirmed, since they haven't yet finalised my contract, my job title will is most probably, if not for sure, going to be Jr Network Support Engineer.

I can't tell much about the company activities. But would rather say we are in structured cabling, Hospitality Triple Play Services (actually my dept..), the company is actually a network integrator (like France said..).

Although its sometimes a bit under pressure..i do actually love that job..I got wonderful colleagues (who i hope are reading this..)..and theres a whole college of cute gurls just opposite to the office!! lol..

Bon..I am currently reading some documentation..for job purposes..can't say on wht am reading..coz its confidential..

So..this was a post..after..euh..some days..

Causality

Many of u know that am a firm believer of causality. I am rather of those who believe every effect has a cause rather than thinking of some absurd destiny. And this is even mentioned in Hindu Philosophy. While i was reading (re-re-re-reading for some articles...) on Wikipedia I once again came across the Grandfather paradox. The key concept of this paradox is



Suppose a man traveled back in time and killed his biological grandfather before the latter met the traveller's grandmother. As a result, one of the traveller's parents (and by extension, the traveller himself) would never have been conceived. This would imply that he could not have travelled back in time after all, which in turn implies the grandfather would still be alive, and the traveller would have been conceived, allowing him to travel back in time and kill his grandfather. Thus each possibility seems to imply its own negation, a type of logical paradox.




Assuming that time travel was made possible..either via some kind of wormhole or following my theory (might b nonsense as well..bt hell this is science fiction..)..i managed to travel back in time..and kill my grandfather..what would happen of me?? or better..what if i fathered my father rather than my grandfather doing so?? I would then be..euh..my own grandfather..confusing isn't it?



Anyways..i was actually thinking about time travel..lately i was in a situation where i had to make a choice, one which would decide on the rest of my career..and while i was in a some weird stuff hit my mind..travelling to the future could help me decide what to choose..but how??



What is the present to start with?



According to me..the present is what we can hear, see, feel. Well the present is what we experience through our senses. Those are bounded by the speed of light..and the speed of travel of electrical signals to our brain. Speed of light is basically the fastest speed of travel mankind came across (isn't it?). Now what if it wasn't? This could be distorted..or we could go faster than that (perhaps through a wormhole??). This would mean we are already living in the past..since the events we are experiencing have already occurred..and since our perception depends on the speed of light or speed of electrical signal..we are experiencing it later..



Is that confusing?

Well..thats just what i think..



I also read a lot about parallel universes..i even have a documentary by BBC on the subject. The documentary deals with parallel universes, string theory, M theory, supergravity, and other theoretical physics concepts. Participants include Michio Kaku, Paul Steinhardt, and other physicists. If want a copy just let me know..
