Chess and Life.. Continued

One of the things that does not occur so early in a game of chess is resigning. Grandmaster Gary Kasparov once resigned his game after very few moves against a computer opponent as a result of blunder. He knew that he could not carry on. Even if he did, it would have only yielded embarrassment. He could have chosen to continue the game, yet he did not simply to escape the pain during the game. This is where the 'style' of the player comes into effect. He can choose to play or give up as soon as he wants.

Same things may happen in life as well. If people come to know that they have made a blunder that cannot be taken back, then they will be forced to quit irrespective of how strong resources they have in their arsenal. Although its a snap decision, it can be the right one as well. But people are often appreciated if they fight a battle where defeat is inevitable instead of giving up so soon.

Saturation levels getting reached. Next stop Breakdown.

Nature's beauty is that it doesn't want anything to be static. Everything keeps changing and change is what we call as time. Time is one mysterious concept that many physicists/scientists want to beat/break. It has been impossible since and I don't see any advancements in that area in the near future.

I have a very strong feeling that we are in a saturation level right now. Yes, there is an immense scope of expansion/innovation in technology, lifestyle and all that. But all these are happening at a pace even nature cant control.

Its very hard to digest/see the imbalance between the rich and poor in the society exceeding limits. The climate is severely getting damaged. The raise in temperature every year is going to beat Moore's law. We tend to remain close doors, put AC, pump out the air from our homes, buildings, vehicles and send it out to the atmosphere. There is a limit that it can take. One of the lethal weapons that nature has in its Arsenal is the calamity. We're experiencing too many in the recent times and its only going to get doubled each year.
It is not going to be a big surprise if end will be reached in 2012, in fact many people would prefer that then.

Random thoughts, stopping now
