Quantum Theory

As a temporal semanticist, I believe in possible worlds. This simply means that anything could be possible from the point in time called "Now" onward. This is called the branching-future-hypothesis. There exists plenty of different possibilities for the future.

And I somehow don't like how this future is turning out, at least, for the time being.

My activity line is getting more and more subdued.

I miss the pressure.

Again, the symptoms of a workaholic.

I did some stuff that marked closure of the semester.

I submitted my grades the other day. I copied my files to my re-writable CD and emptied my folder, ready for the incoming semester. I also returned all the books that I don't need anymore. I cleaned my desk and put up a new calendar for the new year.

New people have come to the department. And people who have gone have come back.

A newly-hired syntactician came to the department, and started setting up his office. The professor on sabbatical came back from Japan, and another professor on course-reduction just came back from Mexico after doing his fieldwork.

He just walked in my open office offering me his home-made cookies, accomplishing the feat with a simple one-word sentence:

"Cookie?"

And I got up and accepted a piece, accomplishing the feat with another one-word sentence:

"Oh?"

Yesterday, I had a weird dream. I cannot say that it was a nightmare, but I seem to be located somewhere in Japan or the Philippines. My recent dreams include Osaka or Manila somehow, which is weird. It was dark, it seems to be a corner street, my family was trailing behind me, and then I see my best friend, and his brother, but I don't come up and acknowledge him. Weird. I act as if I don't know him, and instead, I laugh hard. Dracula-like. My family starts to think I am crazy. My best friend's little brother then comments that I may have a mental condition. Then I get 2 feet away from my best friend and laugh real hard I almost choke on my saliva.

Then I woke up and realized that it was just a dream.

Before I go, let me share my third photo from my Telephone Series. Maybe I will dream that I will get sucked into these holes and be transported in some other quantal plane.

  1. Like you, I believe in possible worlds (or future) branching from a decision.

    I just hope that whatever I decided or opted at this time will bring me the best of both world.

    Gusto sana kitang kumustahin but it seems you are just doing well.

    Take care, bro!

  3. I like this photo - sometimes such used things are so surprising while captured in an image...
