The ThinkTank Chronicles.

This is my journey from the deeply mysterious to the outrageously silly and mundace happenings of my life. the lows and highs, the ups and downs. And maybe a Simple Harmonic Motion to an exponential curve. Mathematical, Scientific, Theistic, Philosophical, Logical,Social, every conceivable idea.

what would you do?

What would you do if you knew you would never fail?

My thought was that i would try to do anything and everything i wanted to do, from bizarre to the most absurd and physically impossible. defy gravity, and many others...

But the most common answer i got when i asked my friends was "nothing"

That was quite strange.

All, can you please put in the first thought that you get in your mind. Only the first thought only please.

nothing is also the most logical answer dont you think?

if we knew we would achieve success..what is the thrill of trying?
the risk of failure enriches the attempt dosent it?

i dont know about the logical thing.

success is absoute dont you think? is success defined by not losing?

isnt success defined by the process and not the result? I mean bungee jumping etc are all the processes and the thrill. Risk of failure is a bigger incentive for taking the challenge. But shouldnt we concentrate on the means than on the end?

twas suman that said so...

ah So what happens when u want to fail, from ur premise one who can never fail in the first place which means he fails in his attempt to fail and so with a failure to achieve failure the paradox reveals itself, from which we can conclude that failure is relative and the premise must be refined if there was to be any more analysis on this front, Ciao.
