Tue
Year 2013 is coming to an end.
The last day of the year is ever so similar to the previous ones.
(All these preparations for the new year, TV programs, etc.)
The sense of repetition makes me think about time.
I have live for 26 years, which is more than quarter of a century and (most likely) quarter of my lifetime.
I cannot help being anxious at the thought of losing time.
The time is limited. So what do I expect from rest of my life?

I've always wanted to be smarter.
That will continue to be my aspiration.
As long as the basic needs are met (when I'm not too hungry or too lonely), the atmost objective of my life will be to know better.
That is, to know what this world is about, and to know what living is about.

I used to say, 'I want to closer to the truth'.
Now that I'm less naive, I'm not sure if there exists a single, objective and universal truth.
Maybe there is no such thing.
Even so, there has to be so much more to know, and much ignorance I can grow out of.
That is my conviction; that there still are surprises.
Where are those surprises likely to come from?
My hunch is that the largest secrets about the world is hidden in the act of "observing the world" itself.
When I know better about the brain, language, mathematics, etc., I may gain a novel perspective.

But this year, I have arrived at an another hunch, that knowing may not be separable from communicating.
At this moment I cannot elaborate this further. This will be for the coming new year.
