“Data is the foundation of information ,knowledge, and ultimately , wisdom and informed action.

Is data truth? Not necessarily! Data can be inaccurate,incomplete,out of date, and misunderstood.For centuries,philosophers have asked,”What is truth?”,and the answer remains elusive.

On a practical level,truth is,to some extent,information of the highest quality-data, that is available,relevant,complete,accurate ,consistence,timely,usable,meaningful,and understood.

Organizations that recognize the value of data can take concrete,proactive steps to increase the the quality of data and information.”

What I liked about this definition, from the Data Management Association DAMA guide to the data management body of knowledge,is the precaution taken when defining the relation between information and truth in an organizational context ,these can be  noticed in the phrases “On a practical level” and “to some extent”!. While it can be an scientific way of writing still it amaze me in the knowledge era.

The second observation is about the first sentence,precisely about the order of Data,information,then  knowledge which is alright with me,but wisdom and informed action, it could make more sense  to me,without  the organizational context,if it was flipped so informed action and wisdom.

Life has no meaning

  • Life or human existence has no real meaning or purpose because human existence occurred out of a random chance in nature, and anything that exists by chance has no intended purpose.[172]
  • Life has no meaning, but as humans we try to associate a meaning or purpose so we can justify our existence.[143]

  • You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.[143]
  • The meaning of life is to forget about the search for the meaning of life.[143]
  • Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.[201]

Life is bad

  • Life is a bitch, and then you die.[146]
  • Better never to have been.[202]

Sonja Lyubomirsky is a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside and author of The How of Happiness, a book of strategies backed by scientific research that can be used to increase happiness.

The premise of The How of Happiness is (1) that happiness is worth striving for, and (2) that 50 percent of a given human’s happiness level is genetically determined (based on twin studies),10 percent is affected by life circumstances and situation, and a remaining 40 percent of happiness is subject to self control

The messy reality and the narrative coherence expectation

How comes  i convinced my self in this uncertain complex interdependence of thoughts,people, economic, power ,worldviews, ………, that a  narrative Coherence is expected to describe the History, reality , and the future of humanity , it seems that  word messy coherence is one of the needed descriptive Sense-making ways,but in it self is again not sufficient to the why question because it still misses the interactions of the mess . 

Do I really need another way to improve the thinking process of mine or a redesign to  the whole thinking is needed, or do I  have been anchored by  the trends of making over

Can it be done to redesign the thinking ?

Or

Transform the thinking ?

I don’t  know,or I don’t need to know ?

What a morning , ideas ,people, lives,bacteria ,presentations ,stories , ……,Allah.

I was chasing  ,a failed search for an artical titled “angel technology uses behavioral science to empower people” those days I’m trying to catch behavioral economics  perspectives ,at the same time I was looking for a  TED talks on germs Eco or Bio Architecture lucky enough I found Jessica  Green talks ,I was looking for her  not remembering  the speaker name,  I was happy with the uniting idea as I perceived it ,and the hidden interdependencies that will soon  becomes  obvious in architecture as I hope,  then on the side my eyes my curiosity catches a not understandable title that happened to be interesting  ,here  I have to credit the people  who crafted the matching algorithm for doing their part of the job.

Elizabeth Gilbert’s Elusive creative  genius talk ,what a genius talk at the beginning of  it i reminded my self to let go of thoughts that would bother me and I kept letting go   , so I enjoyed as much of  the talk , and   amazed by the hidden interconnection with Jessica Green talks!!!  ALLAH.

I really liked the movie ,temple Experince is well narrated the cast was wonderful the main character who did temple was amazing, that ‘s about the movie but the way she experinced her life needs a deep thinking in the way we perceive reality as we describe it although of  the science journeys ,discoveries, tools, philosophies and what ever advancement human had made, still there are a lot of  there, we could not perceive ,our knowledge is limited  ,our capacity to facilitate or to nurture new perspectives ,diversity are limited by our conventions about the perceived reality  which the majority of us  protect and conserve  missing a lot.
