The Ivory Tower Reconsidered

But I would emphasize one other, indispensable ingredient in this recipe for change: these four young people all summoned the passion, the courage, and the will to act–to take their stand against injustice. … ; but as these four students showed, defying danger and their own doubts, each of us can create our own logic of events and, by acting, turn the dreams of one age into the “inevitabilities” of the next.

讀任何一科也會間接提昇讀其他任何一科的能力.

任何的思考學習也會刺激腦部, 增加腦細胞之間的連繫, 整體智力上升. 對以後學習任何科目也有幫助.

大量閱讀是有效的方法, 一方面腦細胞之連繫會增加得很快很多, 另一方面可以掌握廣博的知識.

當你的腦細胞連繫和一般知識達到臨界質量時, 你會發現你的智力升高了一個Level.

Yin and Yang

Principles

“Everything can be described as either yin or yang.

1. Yin and yang are opposites.

Everything has its opposite—although this is never absolute, only comparative. No one thing is completely yin or completely yang. Each contains the seed of its opposite. For example, cold can turn into hot; “what goes up must come down”.

2. Yin and yang are interdependent.

One cannot exist without the other. For example, day cannot exist without night.

3. Yin and yang can be further subdivided into yin and yang.

Any yin or yang aspect can be further subdivided into yin and yang. For example, temperature can be seen as either hot or cold. However, hot can be further divided into warm or burning; cold into cool or icy.

4. Yin and yang consume and support each other.

Yin and yang are usually held in balance—as one increases, the other decreases. However, imbalances can occur. There are four possible imbalances: Excess yin, excess yang, yin deficiency, yang deficiency.

5. Yin and yang can transform into one another.

At a particular stage, yin can transform into yang and vice versa. For example, night changes into day; warmth cools; life changes to death.

6. Part of Yin is in Yang and part of Yang is in Yin.

The dots in each serve as a reminder that there are always traces of one in the other. For example, humans will always be both good and evil, never completely one or the other.”

電腦的作業系統是Windows, Linux, MacOS, etc.

人腦的作業系統是 語言.

語言者, 中英數也.

中文是中國人的語言;
英文是地球人的語言;
數學是宇宙人的語言.

語言是思考的起點;
思考是學問的起點;
學問是人生的起點;
人生是宇宙的起點.

宇宙的起點是大爆炸.

2.22 硬件常識:

人的大腦是沒有CPU(中央處理器)的.

人的大腦是由大量的神經元組成.

neuron-no_labels

Picture of a neuron: Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation.

個別的神經元是沒有意識的.

神經元間互相連繫, 互相溝通, 形成一個複雜的神經元網絡.

有如很多電話透過電話線形成電話網絡一樣.

人的思考意識來自這個神經元網絡.

智力越高 代表神經元之間的連繫越多, 網絡越複雜;

專長越專 代表個別連繫路線的頻寬高, 導致某一組神經元之間有高速的訊息傳遞.

記陳省身

人活得長,歷練凝固成金石良言。他叫人要博學:「誰也不知道,你所學的將來發展是否有用,所以盡量要多學。

他主張背書,學問一定要熟得不得了:「一定要閉了眼晴一看,情況都看得見,你才能有希望在這方面有重要的貢獻。

他叫人練好招式,才能把握運氣:「科學的發展,有如波浪,有高有低,當它在頂點時,你就能跨上去,但要先得練幾套拳、幾套劍。」

你花全部時間在數學,都只能知道一點皮毛。」我記得,這是訪問的最後一句話。

注意身體健康, 不要做遺反物理定律或生物定律的事.

例如, 要有適量的睡眠, 不要以為可以長時間 “開夜車”(讀書至深夜也不睡).

短時期的開夜車是可以的. 但是整個月都這樣的話, 整個腦都呆了起來, 智力下降, 得不償失.

大學時期, 我有一個高考3A 的同學. 我問他讀書的技巧. 他答了一些要點. 最後一個是

”千萬不要開夜車,這點非常重要…”

Maths | Physics | Witten

Sir Michael Atiyah said of Witten,

“Although he is definitely a physicist (as his list of publications clearly shows) his command of mathematics is rivalled by few mathematicians, and his ability to interpret physical ideas in mathematical form is quite unique. Time and again he has surprised the mathematical community by his brilliant application of physical insight leading to new and deep mathematical theorems… he has made a profound impact on contemporary mathematics. In his hands physics is once again providing a rich source of inspiration and insight in mathematics. ”

2.1 軟硬智力

1.1 專博之爭

究竟應該做一個專家還是一個博士呢?

1.2 第二是沒有意思的

1.31 對策一

哪應該取專還是取博呢?

1.32 對策二

哪怎樣保證可以做到第一?

2.1 軟硬智力

一個人的智力是先天已定, 還是後天可以靠努力提昇的呢?

勤能補拙嗎?

以為勤不能補拙的人有點不負責任: 未曾努力就說自己拙.
以為勤能補拙的人又有點天真:難道聰明的人不會勤力嗎? 聰明的人往往是最勤力的人.

一個人的智力受先後天兩方面的影響:
正如一部電腦的效能一方面受硬件的影響,另一方面受軟件的影響.

一個天才的腦子不努力,就像買了強大的電腦裝備後不安裝軟件程式,變成廢電腦.

另一方面,如果電腦硬件裝備本身不足,無論安裝多利害的軟件也會運行得很慢,沒有大作為.

哪如何提高自己的IQ呢?

機會成本

In economics, opportunity cost

1. is the cost of something in terms of an opportunity forgone
(and the benefits which could be received from that opportunity),

2. or the most valuable forgone alternative

(or highest-valued option forgone),
i.e. the second best alternative.

Recognizer and nurturer of talent

1. It is a rare, special human trait in teachers to be able to deal with students more talented than themselves, being able to kindly and effectively transfer their life experience and body of knowledge to those more gifted.

2. László Rátz was such a teacher, with refined sense for talent that he dealt with as equals, as colleagues, as peers.

3. For instance, when he felt he could no longer provide anything more to Johnny Neumann, he requested the university professor Michael Fekete to help out and teach him.

4. Eugene Wigner was asked in the late 1970’s ‘Do you remember Rátz?’ to which he answered: ‘There he is!’ and pointed to a picture of Rátz on his office wall.
