A Simple Explanation of The Prisoner's Dilemma

https://i.imgsafe.org/66d53f1b35.jpg


Introduction - Game Theory and the Prisoner's Dilemma


Game theory is commonly referred to in psychology, economics, political studies and even biology.

It tries to apply mathematical models to situations where multiple parties can either co-operate or be in conflict with each other.

The game is what the situation is referred to although it does not have to be a game as such.

It could be going to war, competing for food or running for political office.

One of the common games that is discussed is known as the prisoner's dilemma (PD).

This is actually a relatively simple problem to understand on a basic level but if you look at a matrix like the following it might actually not make much sense at first:

Q C
Q 1,1 3,0
C 0,3 2,2
I will try to present this in a simple and easy to understand manner without getting bogged down in the mathematical details.

I don't fully understand the mathematical component myself!

For me it is always easier to visualise situations in my mind and that is what I will try to use in my explanation.

Most of us have never been in prison or involved in criminal enterprises so I have constructed a situation which most of us are likely to be familiar with!


A Simple Example


The School Prank:

https://i.imgsafe.org/66d550c17e.jpg

Jack and Susan both work together on planting stink bombs throughout the school as a prank. The prank is a great success resulting in the school having to be evacuated and all the children having to be sent home!

Their teacher Mrs Smith suspects the pair but does not have any evidence to prove it. Being a fan of game theory she separates the two of them and offers them both the same deal on their own:

This is a serious matter. I know you were both involved in this but I can't prove it. If you confess now you can go home and your partner in crime will get 3 detentions. If you both confess you will get 2 detentions. If you both say nothing you will still get 1 detention.


What should Jack or Susan do?

https://i.imgsafe.org/66f5a4c799.jpg

  1. If neither of them confess then they both only suffer the single detention.
  2. If Jack confesses and Susan stays quiet, then he goes home and she gets 3 detentions.
  3. If Susan confesses and Jack stays quiet then she goes home and he gets 3 extra detentions.
  4. If they both confess then they both get 2 detentions. ___ ## We can express this in a table like so:
Susan Quiet Susan Confesses
Jack Quiet 1,1 3,0
Jack Confesses 0,3 2,2
  • The first value to the left of the comma expresses the time in detention that Jack gets.
  • The second value to the right of each comma expresses the time that Susan gets.
This is the basic convention used in these matrices.

Sometimes the options for each player may also be slightly raised or lowered to highlight the distinction.

I have also seen some tables that make them different colours for the same reason but I can't do that using Markdown!

So for example if we look at the top right situation where Jack is quiet but Susan confesses.

The result 3,0 indicates that Jack gets 3 detentions whereas Susan gets zero.

This is how to read these tables/matrices.

This can help us to break down the choices in a more simple visual way.

Jack's Options:

It can sometimes be easier to break things down to the individual viewpoints.

If we consider Jack's choices if he thinks that Susan will stay quiet we can simplify the matrix/table as follows:

Susan Quiet
Jack Quiet 1
Jack Confesses 0

If he stays quiet he gets one detention. If he confesses he goes home without any further detention.

Therefore the optimal choice for him is to confess.

What if he thinks Susan will confess?

Let's isolate what happens to him then:

Susan Confesses
Jack Quiet 3
Jack Confesses 2

In this case if Jack remains quiet he gets 3 detentions, if he confesses he gets 2. Again the best choice is confession.

This tells us that the best strategy for Jack regardless of what Susan does is to confess.

What about Susan?

If she knows Jack will be quiet:
Susan Quiet Susan Confesses
Jack Quiet 1 0
The situation is exactly the same for Susan as it was for Jack.

The best option is for her to confess as she goes home with 0 detentions.

If she thinks Jack will confess:
Susan Quiet Susan Confesses
Jack Confess 3 2

Again as with the situation with Jack, the optimal solution for her is to confess, because it only gives her 2 detentions vs 3.

The best strategy for Susan, as for Jack is to confess.

Confession is the Dominant Strategy

https://i.imgsafe.org/66f595ef1a.jpg

Since the strategy of confession is better for both parties than staying quiet, confession is said to dominate keeping quiet.

It might seem counterintuitive, since if both kept quiet they would only get 1 detention each.

The point is this is not the optimal strategy from either individual standpoint.

The way I conceptualise it is that dual confession is the equilibrium point if both parties are trying to minimise their punishment.

This becomes all the more important if you don't know for certain how your partner or opponent for that matter may behave.

In most real world situations I think that is actually the case.


Hierarchy of Options is More Important than Absolute Values

It should also be noted that in the Prisoner's dilemma the actual relative values of the punishments are not important.

All that matters is that there is a hierarchy of punishments or losses.


Conclusion


https://i.imgsafe.org/66d544031d.jpg

I hope you have found this explanation useful and easy to understand.

I am still learning about this and am by no means any kind of expert - I will apologise in advance for any mistakes or errors!

This is the basic PD but it there are numerous special variants.

According to a paper by Daniel et al there are (at least) 4 main types of PD games:

the public/private benefits and costs distinction gives rise to four classes of PD games under the names of provision, commons, altruism, and selfish.

Things get complicated fast and frankly the mathematics is beyond my understanding - at least right now.

The most interesting thing for me when it comes to the PD is the numerous different examples and fields where it can crop up.

The binary choice represented by cooperation/betrayal can come up in situations as diverse as war and peace between two nations (or superpowers) or decisions about advertising within a corporation.

Where have you seen the Prisoner's Dilemma at work yourself? Let me know in the comments.

On The Purposeful Fragmenation of the Mind

https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/600/1*DwkrLn7owzSH5f2M3diDCA.png

We stifled John Nash's growth and we stifled society because of it too.

I'm going to move unapologetically fast and without citations, because my readers will trust me by now.

It is said and known that John Nash was telling people that he was receiving information and ideas from aliens. This is part of the story of how he went mentally ill (but thankfully magically recovered by healing himself).

But it is obviously useful to think outside of the box, and like it would be incredibly useful to have put the sun at the center of our solar model (rather than the earth), or it would useful to understand the world to be a sphere (and therefore there are no ends of the earth), it would be helpful, especially in monetary theory, to think about interaction with aliens.

It is in fact this realization that is the basis for Ideal Money, and Ideal Money is a concept John Nash invented when we was mentally ill and claiming he was speaking with aliens.

There is another important concept which I'll move over incredibly fast and without citations again.

Nash's equilibrium theory, is effectively based on two players (or more) who each play a game perfectly in relation to each other. This could be simulated or brute force calculated by repeated play between players that are adjusting their strategies in relation to each other (with the assumptions each player is actually trying to win and capable of reason (reason which allows them to properly update their strategy)).

Its another way of saying that eventually the players will get to a place where each of them are doing the best they can versus the other player (with the assumption that both players are good and they each know the other player knows this etc. to infinity).

Without computers (ie back in the day), the way to do this would be to find another good player. But this is sort of irrational from Nash's standpoint.

So he had to fragment his mind, and play versus himself.

This (coupled with confidence and fast neural computing speed (which comes from a type of confidence)) is how he came up with the Nash Equilibrium.

Morning Routine For Success

6 things you should include in your morning routine, if you want success!

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/EFP8WTHyRDM/maxresdefault.jpg

Success depends on how you start your day. If you start your day in the right way, the way it should, then everything else will follow that example. Your actions are like a domino, as one starts, others are followed by the same way. Do not cause a negative domino effect of his actions on the start. Create the right habits that will affect another. One thing leads to another, consider, you can not pick apples, planting potatoes.

Anyone who is successful in the fitness, maintaining their own health, or in any aspect of the business, definitely has something that we can all have! Good morning routine! It helps him prepare for the rest of the day and deal with the challenges it brings.

http://examinedexistence.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/morning-coffee-and-journal.jpg

1. Get up earlier

Many historical and famous peoples such as Napoleon, Hemingway, Lincoln, Franklin, Richard Branson, Armstrong and most of the richest people in the world are waking up in a period of 4 to 7 in the morning.

I agree and I'm a fan of getting up early and all the good that goes with it. Getting up early, not only to strengthen your will and self-control, but also build self-confidence, because each day starts with victory over the bed. Many great ideas and
works are just created in this period.
Best of all is that you will have your time and peace to dedicate to yourself. Again, most people are asleep and there is little chance that someone will disturb and disconcerting you in your work.

2. Exercise

In addition to training in the early morning is best for your body and overall health, it stimulates the secretion of the hormone of happiness.

When you exercise in the morning, your metabolism is lifted and remains so few hours and even 24 hours. Practicing in the morning, you will feel that your physical condition is much better throughout the day and you will be enthusiastic and active without much fatigue.
You will be satisfied with yourself because you know you are doing something for yourself and body. Daily tasks and problems will seem lighter and easier and you can relax after work.

3. Do the most difficult task for that day

In short, when you first do the most difficult task, the rest of the day, and your to-do list, will be much simpler and easier to do. Also, in the morning you have more power, peace and desire for these things.

4. Take half an hour for motivation

The best time to motivate yourself is in the morning, because you are still preparing for a work and obligations.

You can motivate yourself in many ways. Reading the books of successful people who inspire you. Watching footage of motivational speaker and successful people. You can even find motivation in your life, so you'll go through all the achievements that you achieve.

5. Make time for gratitude and affirmation

You have a bunch of literature and texts on the Internet about the positive impact of affirmation and gratitude.
In short, affirmations are sentences that you reapeat to yourself, so long that they just plotted in mind. Maybe you already doing affirmations but not even aware.

6. Plan your day

Extract a small part of that time in the morning to plan your day. It is much easier to go through the daily tasks, if you know what to do and when to do it.

Write a few daily tasks or goals that they would like to do that day, and then the rest of the day, making sure to fill it out.

When at the end of the day you check off your list you will be overflow by a sense of satisfaction as you fulfill what you have planned. In this way, you build confidence and trust in your abilities.

Continuous Failure = Inevitable success

We are born into this world with little guidance; most of us immediately thrown into the education / indoctrination system.

Quite a few of us are forced to mentally raise ourselves.

When we make errors, society paints them as mistakes.

Society teaches us we should never make mistakes.

And they lie.

Making mistakes is fundamental to success.

You will almost ALWAYS make mistakes. And because you are human, you can learn from these mistakes.

The ability to learn from mistakes is what leads to success.

Even if you fine tune your path to success by listening to many mentors and gurus on the subject: you are still learning from THEIR mistakes.

And if not; they are still learning from their mentors mistakes and so on and so forth.

Thus it can be noted that mistakes are the richest quality ingredient in the formulation of success.

Without mistakes, one cannot succeed.

And so, if you want success and you don't want to wait another 20 years: just do it.

I know I am sounding a little like the shoe company associated with the goddess of victory (Nike), but I'm serious.

The best thing you can do to succeed, is do things in the now.

Try things and fail.

At least you'll know that those things wouldn't have worked for you.

Every time you fail, or make a mistake: alter your algorithm.

Winners, are not people who never fail; but people who never quit ~ Credit

The Re-Levation of Heaven as an Ideal Society

The general insight here in relation to how we stifled John Nash's thinking and the purposeful fragmentation of the mind is that it can be seen/shown that we are slowing our progress as a society by not allowing the proper use and implementation of the concept of Heaven as an Ideal Society.

This should be obvious by now.

Here's what happens when you tell the police you were abused as a child - Part One

Can I ask why you waited so long to report the alleged offences? The police officer asked me.

It was one of the most difficult phone calls I've ever made. I phoned the police to tell them what my dad and other 'adults' did to me when I was a kid, several decades ago.

Here I am as a kid in England, fancy-dressed as the cult-leader that the British called The Arch Bishop of Canterbury:

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/572/31818365061_6a62d2c52f_b.jpg

Everyone now knows that the UK sexually abuses its children on an industrial scale1, so I expected a straight-forward process with the police where details would be recorded and added to the growing database of information for cross-referencing. But just a few questions in, I got this from the officer:

Can I ask why you waited so long to report the alleged offences?

I let the words hang naked in the air. The police wanted to know why I waited so long to report the alleged offences.

Well, let me see now.

A few reasons; I suppose. Perhaps small but significant ones were:

That the entire country from the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher2 downwards was enabling the rape of children. That many major TV presenters at the time were raping children3. That the previous Prime Minister was raping children4. That the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) was running a paedophile ring5. That teachers at my school, King's House in Richmond, London were raping children6. That the Scout leaders at my scout hut were raping children. That the people who ran the local swimming pool, The Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre, were raping children. That many politicians were raping children7. That my dad was raping his children. That several of our family 'friends' were raping children. That our local church was raping children.

It was almost as if a whole society was committing a crime and covering it up...

Yeah, I think those are some of the reasons why I waited so long.

Also, the people who abused us said that the police would come and take us away when we were kids. To stop us talking about the sexual abuse. The police were not our friends.

It also felt, well, a bit strange when, later, the country gave Margaret Thatcher a state funeral8 (although they pretended it technically wasn't one). It would have been more reassuring if they had posthumously stripped her of her title and seized her estate to compensate all the children she facilitated the rape of.

But, instead, a lot of people seemed to endorse what she did.

Jimmy Savile endorsed her, and he sexually abused over one thousand children:

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02437/savile-thatcher_2437786k.jpg

It was enough to make a rape survivor feel a bit strange. It felt almost as if everyone thought it was just fine to rape children in the UK. It was almost as if raping children was an innate part of British culture. It was almost as if child rapists like Jimmy Savile were part of a network of abusers, intimately entwined with government and state. Protected and denied.

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/03185/prince_Charles_jim_3185533b.jpg

As Thatcher demonstrated, you'd literally get a street parade and a gun salute fired at one-minute intervals from the Tower of London in honour of your service, if you facilitated the rape of children in Britain. It was almost as if child rape was acceptable in the UK. You could almost imagine serial child-rapists like Rolf Harris being invited to hang out with the Queen.

No, no. That would be absurd.

http://www.hangthebankers.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Queen-Elizabeth-II-Rolf-Harris.jpg

Maybe I'm too sensitive to these things. But, in England, when I was a kid, it felt a bit like everyone had gone fucking insane.

I also got the feeling that telling the British police about being raped as a kid was a bit like telling a Nazi Officer that I was somewhat concerned about the concentration camps. It felt absurd.

http://www.museumsyndicate.com/images/8/75126.jpg

Concentration camps you say? Oh dear. Yes, yes, we will thoroughly investigate for you.

After all, the police already knew what was going on, because many of them were raping children too9, and covering up for those who rape children10.

The police even 'lost' the dossier containing the names of all the politicians who were raping children.11.

Can I ask why you waited so long to report the alleged offences?

I wonder, on reflection, if the police should leave this question off the list of things they ask sexual abuse survivors in the UK?

In Part 2 (coming soon) I will report on the rest of my experience of making a formal statement to the police about childhood sexual abuse. Hopefully this will help other survivors understand what they are dealing with when they confront the profoundly dysfunctional state apparatus of the 'United' Kingdom.

A Re-visit of Supra-Rationality

In regard to the optimization of the transfer of (valuable) information (ie communication), it is sometimes seen and said that something is irrational when it is yet to have unfolded, and it indeed actually wholly (supra-)rational.

On Insight

Insight then could be vaguely said to be seen as the meeting or introduction of an individual to a highly compressed and valuable article. So there is reason attached it, but its not expressible (at least not immediately or for quite some time).

Insight is in one sense random (we tend to view it as only ever not random).

It's bound to propagate (or it is nothing at all).

Оptical illusion 52

The illusion of distortion. Square

http://www.pressmaket.ru/images/il_9.gif

Another classic illusion of distortion. A perfect circle, surrounded squares - visually distorted.

http://www.pressmaket.ru/images/il_10.gif

Illusion of distortion - look closely and you will see that the lines are parallel.

http://www.pressmaket.ru/images/il_0.jpg

The illusion of the Hermann-Goering - fleeing gray dots visible on all the intersections of the lines, moreover, which focuses the eye. If you watch closely the black dot for 30 seconds black and white parts of the image will waver. If you translate then look at the white point, there will be white squares on a black background, which constantly shift (the effect of physiological nystagmus).

http://www.pressmaket.ru/images/il_28.jpg

The hexagonal lattice effect mnogochislennyh of triangles of different sizes in different places.

http://www.pressmaket.ru/images/il_53.jpg

The brain unconsciously sees convex and concave patterns.

Nguời lăn theo dốc

Xét ra thì mỗi ngày tôi cũng thường bay đến một nơi mà thời gian vốn đã biến mất . Trong giấc mộng hằng đêm , tôi hình như đã từng vút nhanh đi còn hơn là ánh sáng: mắt không cần nhìn .. mà vẫn thấy , tai chẳng cần nghe .. nhưng vẫn biết . Những điều mà tôi nhận thức đuợc tại nơi đó không còn lệ thuộc, chẳng bị gò bó bởi không gian và thời gian nữa .

Nhưng tiếc thay mỗi khi tỉnh giấc, tôi lại thuờng gạt bỏ , phủi quên hết những chi tiết tình báo quý giá vô ngàn đã thu luợm đuợc tại nơi này . Cái bộ máy thu-thanh-phát-thanh mà tôi quen ráp lại xài trong lúc tỉnh xem ra thật quá thô thiển , không tài nào ghi đúng và quay lại cho thấy rõ những gì phát hiện đuợc trong cõi mơ ... Phải có cách nào để điều chỉnh nó chứ !

Cách đây nhiều năm tôi từng có một giấc mơ lạ và ngộ nghĩng . Nó đáng ghi nhớ bởi vì vào thời điểm đó đã giúp cho tôi thấm hiểu đuợc chút khía cạnh sâu xa của cuộc sống .

Trong đêm đó tôi mơ thấy mình bị lâm vào một tình cảnh rất lúng túng và nguy ngập: tôi đang lái một xe vận tải lớn thì xe chết máy nằm đuờng . Sửa xe không đuợc, phân vân chẳng biết phải làm sao để mang đuợc xe về nhà . Tự dưng trong đầu nảy ra ý định dùng một cái xe hơi nhỏ đang có sẵn kế bên để kéo chiếc vận tải đi . Kéo đuợc một quãng thì xe vận tải bắt đầu tuột dốc , tự nó chạy vuột đi khiến tôi thật hết sức hốt hoảng luống cuống . Ngồi trong cái xe nhỏ, tôi cố gắng đuổi theo để mà chèn mà chặn cái xe lớn kia lại . Nhưng không xong , rốt cuộc chiếc vận tải đó chạy vuột mất … biệt tích …

Cái cảm giác hốt hoảng, bất lực và tuyệt vọng trong giấc mơ đó đã bám víu và ám ảnh tôi không ít sau khi tỉnh dậy . Nó khiến tôi bứt rứt khó chịu mãi cho tới ngày tôi ngộ ra một điều:

Trong cuộc sống hằng ngày tôi vốn thuờng có một quan điểm bảo thủ , thận trọng và dè dặt . Từ nhỏ tôi đã đuợc huấn luyện đào tạo với cái ý niệm tự sinh tự lực, luôn cho rằng mình phải cố gắng, nắm vai trò chủ động trong đời sống của mình . Đầu óc óc tôi đã tích tụ nhiều khái niệm nhiều quan điểm rõ ràng về cuộc đời, về thế giới v..v... Xét chung thì đời tôi đã có chút kết quả thành tựu . Nhưng mà kinh nghiệm sống cũng đã cho tôi nếm không ít khó khăn và thất vọng . Vào thời kỳ đó tinh thần tôi đang trải qua một giai đoạn sa sút . Những sự việc tôi chứng kiến, nghiệm trải qua trên thế gian này, càng ngày càng làm cho tôi bàng hoàng, băn khoăn , thất sách . Mọi việc từ trong gia đình nhà cửa vợ con , cho tới công chuyện làm ăn sinh nhai , đều diễn tiến theo những chiều huớng riêng của nó , bất kể mọi cố gắng mọi hơi sức của tôi ... Dù muốn hay không, tôi dần dần đã phải đi tới sự chấp nhận rằng các khái niệm, các hiểu biết , các kiến thức mà tôi từng thu thập học hỏi cả đời, hầu hết đều là sai lệch , đã đuợc xây trên những nền tảng giả tạo , thiếu sót mơ hồ . Những sai lầm này một phần thì do tôi tự tạo ra qua cái khả năng thô thiển của mình , nhưng một phần nữa lớn hơn đáng kể hơn lại là do các yếu tố từ cái thế giới quỷ quái bên ngoài .

Lúc nhỏ tôi vốn rất thích và hay đọc những truyện Tàu như Tam Quốc Chí v..v.. trong đó có trình bày về những thử thách, những ”mê hồn trận ” mà các quân sư đầy mưu luợc thuờng dàn xếp bố trí để hãm hại và tàn phá địch thủ. Sống hơn nửa đờì nguời , bây giờ tôi mới tỉnh ngộ rằng từ lúc lọt lòng tới nay, chính mình cũng đã kẹt trong một cái mê hồn trận vĩ đại và cực kỳ tinh xảo ! Bao nhiêu là luới bẫy hiểm hóc chằng chịt , bao nhiêu là giây nhợ lôi kéo đã đuợc giăng mắc dàn xếp khắp nơi . Cái ý muốn làm chủ cuộc đời mà tôi thuờng có đó , bây giờ nhìn kỹ mới thấy quả thật là tức cuời , nó chẳng khác chi việc tôi muốn kéo xe vận tải đi về nhà vậy .

Cái xe nhỏ bé mà tôi đang lèo lái, làm sao có thể chuyển huớng đuợc chiếc vận tải cuộc đời ... khi mà nó đang tuột dốc ?

Thoát dạng = thoát mạng

...



Muốn thoát khỏi cái mê hồn trận tên là KhôngGian & Thời Gian, (KG&TG),có lẽ cần phải bay nhanh như ánh sáng .



Muốn bay nhanh như ánh sáng , thì duờng như phải lột bỏ hết các hình thể và khối luợng (để cho mass = 0 ), nghĩa là cần phải ... "thoát dạng" !






Cầm côn đội đá vá trời

Thần thông biến hóa một thời vẻ vang

Sự tình ghi mấy trăm trang

Bởi quên một phép, nên chàng mãi thua …









Chuyện Tây Du Ký kể rằng Tề Thiên Đại Thánh (TTDT) có 72 phép thần thông, đủ tài lực để biến ra nhiều hình thể khác nhau mỗi khi cần thiết. Hắn chỉ cần niệm chú, đổi các quan điểm và ý niệm của tri giác mình là xong . Trong chuyện đó sứ mạng của TTDT vốn là để phò giúp Tam Tạng trên đuờng thỉnh kinh, chiến đấu với đủ loài ma quái vốn luôn luôn bao vây quấy phá và ngăn trở họ .






Trên hành trình xuyên qua thế gian này, kể ra thì chúng ta cũng có chút thần thông để thi hành sứ mạng của mình đấy chứ , chẳng phải là không đâu !


Từ thủa lọt lòng chúng ta đã từng dầy công tu luyện để mà có thể hóa dạng đều đều , như thế mới hòng đối phó đuợc với mọi thử thách của kiếp sống:


- Khi còn nhỏ thì ta đã từng khoác dạng học sinh, dạng đứa con trong gia đình, dạng thanh niên thiếu nữ ..v…v..


- Khi lớn lên thì lập tức đội nhiều lốt, nhiều vai trò trong xã hội, trong làng xóm, trong quốc gia, và trên thế giới …v..v..


…khi thì lên voi, lúc thì xuống chó,


… ... khi thì khóc, khi thì cuời ,


… ... ... ... kể ra không xiết !




Chúng ta chỉ có khác Tề Thiên Đại Thánh ở chỗ là :


- ta đã “nhập dạng” mà không biết,

- đang “hóa dạng” mà không hay !

ngày qua tháng lại , tâm trí cứ khăng khăng ngộ nhận rằng … mình đích thực là những cái dạng đó .





Duờng như chúng ta đã quên mất cái “phép Thoát Dạng" ,
… đã bỏ rớt mất cái chân dạng của mình từ thủa nào rồi ….!



Cái “chân dạng” này hình như rất khoái giả dạng !


Mà hễ cứ dính vào dạng là sẽ dính trong mạng luới của KG & TG ...











Tôn Ngộ Không bởi trót quên mất phép Thoát Dạng nên cứ mãi ... không ngộ ,

ngày qua tháng lại cứ mãi kẹt trong cái vai trò khỉ !

Nhanh như ánh sáng

Trong phòng tôi có treo một cái đồng hồ điện tử trên tuờng . Cứ mỗi giây thì nó đổi hình số một lần, luôn nhắc nhở tôi rằng thời gian đang lặng lẽ trôi … Mỗi sáng tỉnh dậy tôi thuờng mở mắt liếc cái đồng hồ này . Nếu nó chưa đúng 06:00 thì tôi vẫn hay nằm nuớng, ngủ tiếp …

Thế giới tôi, sự hiện hữu của tôi, vốn dựa trên những cái mà tôi nghe thấy và nhìn thấy như vậy . Nếu không có âm thanh và ánh sáng thì cuộc sống của tôi sẽ trở nên rất là lang bạt mơ hồ .













Sáng nay lúc hé mắt tỉnh dậy, cái đồng hồ hiện cho thấy là 05:58 . Tôi nhắm mắt ngủ tiếp . Một giây sau, ngay lúc cái đồng hồ đổi ra số kế tiếp thì cái giuờng tôi đang nằm vụt bay đi với tốc độ của ánh sáng rời bỏ căn phòng . Cái hình ảnh của số 05:59 đuổi kịp theo tôi nên khi mở mắt ra tôi thấy 05:59 . Chưa tới 06:00 giờ mà ! cho nên tôi lại nhắm mắt ngủ tiếp . Cái giuờng tôi nằm vẫn tiếp tục bay nhanh như ánh sáng. Cứ mỗi giây sau đó , cái hình ảnh của số 05:59 lại đuổi kịp theo tôi nên mỗi lần mở mắt ra tôi vẫn cứ thấy 05:59 . Trong lòng khoan khoái tôi lại tiếp tục chìm trong giấc ngủ triền miên của mình . …


Đối với cái thế giới của căn phòng còn nằm yên đó thì thời gian đã đứng khựng, đã ngừng lại cho tôi, bởi vì tôi vừa trót bay nhanh như ánh sáng .



Cái tình cảnh kể trên thật ra rất phù hợp với lý thuyết Tuơng Đối của Einstein . Đối với những thứ bay nhanh bằng tốc độ của ánh sáng , như các quang tử (photon) chẳng hạn, thì thời gian không còn trôi nữa , nó đứng lặng . .. biến mất …


Thế giới của chúng ta, và ngay chính chúng ta nữa, đuợc kết tạo từ các điện tử , nguyên tử v..v.. những thứ di động rất chậm so với ánh sáng , cho nên ta vẫn luôn kẹt cứng trong cái khuôn thời gian này . Trong một cõi khác, nơi mà mọi thứ đuợc tạo dựng lên từ các hạt tử di chuyển nhanh như ánh sáng thì cái thời gian và không gian như ta thuờng biết chẳng còn có nghĩa lý chi hết .





Sáng nay giuờng chiếu bay vù



Trần gian chẳng đợi, thiên thu không chờ



Để thời gian đứng chơ vơ



Tình ham sắc sáng, bỏ bờ bến xưa



Quên rồi ngày tháng đong đưa ….
