Defenition from Wikipedia

Morality refers to the concept of human ethics which pertains to matters of good and evil —also referred to as "right or wrong", used within three contexts: individual conscience, systems of principles and judgments — sometimes called moral values —shared within a cultural, religious, secular, Humanist, or philosophical community;

If morality is defined for a sect, I am starting to feel any action can be justified....

Nudgets of humanly wisdom

Here are some interesting nudgets of humanly wisdom that I came across the internet. I thought they would be good fodder for our thoughts here.

Kai's Example Dilemma: A good analogy is like a diagonal frog.

Etorre's Observation: The other line moves faster.

Hofstadter's Law: Everything takes longer than you think it will, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law (Douglas Hofstadter, Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, 20th anniversary ed., pub. 1999, pg. 152 of chapter 5.

Boren's First Law: When in doubt, mumble.

and last but the best

Minksy's Second Law: Don't just do something. Stand there.

Love and Morality

It has become a commonsiight to see people change the personnel in their relationships, like changing cars in their lives. I have always hated the fact that people are not committed enough in their relationships. But, seeing some of my friends do the same, I am not able to come to grips with the idea more. The last few days I have been trying to see the situation from the other persons shoe, but still, i have the same questions run through my mind. Is it morally correct to do it? Will that not be a haunting factor in ones life?, Is it correct to ditch your partner for a better person?

To add to my previous blog

I am in the 5th year of my Ph.D , with all my friends who are not in school, buying SAAB, and prelude, with me in school with lack of motivation...

Is it laziness or lack of motivation?

I have been in the lab for 40 hours during thelast week, and I have probably worked 10 hours. Other 30 hours, I have been doing irrelevant things, and things that does not reward me by any means. I have been trying to address this efficiency issue for a long time, but this time around it is as bad as a steam engine. The height of this issue was when i was trying to read an article on how to improve or better your concentration, i took a couple of seconds break, and before i realized i had already closed the window. I have always heard people say about the roadblocks people face when doing Ph.D , Is it the same kind ?
