Bonne Nouvelle Année à vous et votre famille, <cormier>.
|Jan-07-12|| ||sevenseaman: <johnlspouge>, may I have your opinion (pour favor) on the best Black move at 21. in the game E Cobo Arteaga vs Ivkov, 1963.|
There is a raging controversy between <21...Rxh4> and <21...d3> in this Saturday's POTD.
You may suggest any that you find best.
|Jan-08-12|| ||johnlspouge: Hi, <sevenseaman>. I did not consider any moves myself other than 21...Rxh4 and 21...d3. Because no others are in contention, I will run only the two moves overnight on Toga 1.3.1.|
|Feb-22-12|| ||quantum.conscious: hello <johnlspouge>,|
your example of <'setting the parameters of problem and handing it over to subconscious in the night, getting the results in the morning at waking up' > helped me in getting clarity in the hypothesis i believe in . part of the reason i posted posts on this topic on rogoff page was to get even more clarity for myself and looks like i am almost done.
i would like to discuss it with you a bit further if you have time and inclination (perhaps it is not a topic you like much and therefore may not like to spend any more time on it and i would understand that)
|Feb-27-12|| ||johnlspouge: Hi, <quantum.conscious>. Sure, if you want to discuss something, I am quite willing. I am not ready to read Deepak Chopra, but I found it helpful when you emphasized the importance of detachment. Stillness and serenity is remarkably undervalued in modern society.|
|Mar-02-12|| ||quantum.conscious: thanks, <john>.
i had ,in the meantime, discussed the things with some other friend, the purpose being getting clarity for myself and i am ok for now.
however, at some later point perhaps i will come back here to have a conversation with you .
and no, i don't have any intention of talking you into reading deepak chopra - my intention is only to get clarity for myself so that my momentum in my evolution forward keeps getting energy and at the same time the conversation should be interesting/beneficial to all the persons involved (otherwise ofcourse i would get the feeling of being a nuisance or receiving a favor - i don't want that feeling :) )
have a nice weekend.

My sense of humor can be quirky sometimes ;>)
Have a good weekend also.
|Mar-07-12|| ||cormier: tks for yesterday <johnlspouge> ... live long & prosper, by|
|Mar-07-12|| ||johnlspouge: Hi, <cormier>. It was my pleasure. Your response had me rolling on the floor laughing. If I had said that, however, everyone would have thought me crazy, too!|

|Apr-03-12|| ||agb2002: Hello John, how are you?
I recently bought the Spanish translation (I normally prefer to read the original but this was a bargain) of Roger Penrose's "The Road to Reality" and was wondering whether you have read it and what could be your opinion in any case.
|Apr-11-12|| ||agb2002: <johnlspouge: Hola, <Antonio>.>|
<Thanks for "dropping by". I hope you and your family are well.>
Thanks to you. I hope the same for you.
<I looked at the reviews of Penrose's "The Road to Reality", which I have not read, >
Hope those reviews were written by mathematicians or physicists... If this is not the case then this review could help
<and I am daunted.>
Why? It is not a book on Spanish Law, or Old Egyptian Grammar, or Fugu Cooking for Dummies, or ...
Actually, it looks to me like a more or less verbose reminder of (and an introduction to) a number of very interesting and important issues on Mathematical Analysis, Differential Geometry, Topology, Physics, etc.
I read Hawkins & Mlodinow's "The Grand Design" and got rather frustrated because of the inexistent maths. This is probably my main reason to read this book. Another reason is to refresh/learn some maths and their applications to Physics. Finally, curiosity is always a factor.
<Do I want to spend the time and effort required to understand the book?>
It's up to you, of course.
<I therefore turn your question back to you: what did you think of the book?
Be judicious in your answer, please ;>) >
You found my impressions and my reasons above. What I can't say is when I'll finish the book!
<All the best,
All the best,
|Apr-14-12|| ||agb2002: <johnlspouge: Hi, Antonio.>|
<Your review link http://www.ams.org/notices/200606/r... was good enough.>
This one is to other reviews as Penrose's Road is to other popular science books :)
<The book is a must-read.>
I didn't want to be so categorical in my previous posts, but yes, it is.
<I will let you know how it goes.>
It would be very interesting to discuss anything in the book with you.
<Thanks for thinking of me :) >
I don't know too many people who might be interested in this book.
<All the best,
|Apr-15-12|| ||quantum.conscious: john, hope you doing well.
you had mentioned that you had ordered viktor frankel's 'man's search for meaning'. did you get it ? did you read it ?
|Apr-16-12|| ||johnlspouge: Hi, <quantum.conscious>. I hope you are well.|
Frankl's book was excellent, and I recommended it to my sister, who is a psychiatrist.
|Apr-16-12|| ||quantum.conscious: i friend of mine is also reading this book by viktor frankl and also liking it. |
btw, i myself have not read this book ... yet :)
i have read the excerpts from it in books and internet and always liked those excerpts very much but never got around to reading it yet :)
the other day my frined was mentioning some quotes from the book and i thought of asking you if the book lived up to your expectations
|Apr-16-12|| ||johnlspouge: < <quantum.conscious> wrote: [snip] the other day my [friend] was mentioning some quotes from the book and i thought of asking you if the book lived up to your expectations >|
I have known several people who had everything taken from them during World War II. They all had extremely centered, stable world-views.
Frankl is no exception, but he brought the extra and very worthwhile dimension of psychoanalysis to his experiences.
Thanks for bringing the book to my attention.

|May-26-12|| ||johnlspouge: Likewise, <cormier>, have a good day. One has to return occasionally, to take care of the body.|
I very much respect your civility and focus, particularly when everyone (including me) seems to be irate. A little rainbow spam is good for the soul, and I do appreciate it :)
|Jun-08-12|| ||al wazir: <jls>: I no longer live in D.C. and I don't use my forum. (I started it only to try playing LEX online.)|
|Sep-30-12|| ||dzechiel: Hi, John. Thanks for the kind words on my forum. While I'm not thrilled to be gainfully unemployed, I am sleeping much better (a lot less stress), and I have extra time on my hands to spent at CG.|
I trust all is well with you and yours.
|Jan-01-13|| ||cormier: happy new year|
|Jan-02-13|| ||johnlspouge: Please continue to thrive, <cormier>.|
|Jan-28-13|| ||quantum.conscious2: thanks for your posts on huygen theory , <johnlspouge>.|
