Aphorismen von Arthur Schopenhauer

Immer kommt es darauf an, was einer sei und demnach an sich selber habe: denn seine Individualität begleitet ihn stets und überall, und von ihr ist alles tingirt, was er erlebt. In allem und bei allem genießt er zunächst nur sich selbst: Dies gilt schon von den physischen; wieviel mehr von den geistigen Genüssen. Daher ist das Englische to enjoy oneself ein sehr treffender Ausdruck, mit welchem man z. Was nun aber, von jenen allen, uns am unmittelbarsten beglückt, ist die Heiterkeit des Sinnes: denn diese gute Eigenschaft belohnt sich augenblicklich selbst. Eben dieser Unterschied ist es, den Plato durch die Ausdrücke Dyskolos und Eukolos bezeichnet.

Der Gesundheit zum Teil verwandt ist die Schönheit.

The Travels Of Scarmentado by Voltaire

My father was governor of the city; and I remember that a poet of middling parts, and of a most unmusical ear, whose name was Iro, composed some verses in my praise, in which he made me to descend from Minos in a direct line; but my father being afterwards disgraced, he wrote some other verses, in which he derived my pedigree from no nobler an origin than the amours of Pasiphae and her gallant. This Iro was a most mischievous rogue, and one of the most troublesome fellows in the island. My father sent me at fifteen years of age to prosecute my studies at Rome, There I arrived in full hopes of learning all kinds of truth; for I had hitherto been taught quite the reverse, according to the custom of this lower world from China to the Alps.

Augustinus - Confessiones

Memories of the East Village Art Scene. In a strictly hedonistic way, Eileen’s Reno Bar was integral to the East Village community.

Memories of the East Village Art Scene

A narrow pocket of surrealism on Second Avenue between 11th and 12th, its ceiling surfaced in plastic jade plant—brown plastic jade plant—Eileen’s had its flaccid nights of dead-room tone. But most evenings brought a steady influx of pre-op transsexuals, clueless walk-ins, bisexual drug dealers, garrulous drunks with a schizophrenic flair, Ricardo Montalban types from Europe lusting after chicks with dicks, and a few black-humored fags like myself, who much preferred the Reno Bar’s nightly Halloween party to clocking the aging process in some drippy gay bar.

Eileen’s had the carnal whoop-de-do of a fetish convention. It was also full of crack whores working the track on 11th Street. One Eileen’s habitué named Joel wore a walrusy mustache and the woebegone, sagging face of the chronically defeated. My friend Louie Laurita and I felt sad for Joel. Ball and socket joint. Human skeletal changes due to bipedalism. [edit] Hip[edit] Knee[edit]

Human skeletal changes due to bipedalism

Lessons. A comparison of the Chimp, Human, and A. afarensis femur demonstrates a rounder femoral head and longer femoral neck length in bipeds.


The femur is a critical link between the pelvis, vertebral column, and the feet in a biped because all of the body's mass is transferred to the feet via this bone during standing and movement. The gluteal muscles that link the femur to the pelvis provide the propulsive force for locomotion. The rounded femoral head articulates with the pelvis at the acetabulum (hip joint). The femoral shaft is generally straight, ending in two bulbous condyles. These are larger and more elliptical in bipeds compared to the relatively smaller and rounder condyles seen in quadrupeds. DER SPIEGEL 14/1966 - JESUS UND DIE KIRCHEN. Birth–death process.

The birth–death process is a special case of continuous-time Markov process where the state transitions are of only two types: "births", which increase the state variable by one and "deaths", which decrease the state by one.

Birth–death process

The model's name comes from a common application, the use of such models to represent the current size of a population where the transitions are literal births and deaths. Birth–death processes have many applications in demography, queueing theory, performance engineering, epidemiology or in biology. They may be used, for example to study the evolution of bacteria, the number of people with a disease within a population, or the number of customers in line at the supermarket. When a birth occurs, the process goes from state n to n + 1. Monte Carlo method. Monte Carlo methods (or Monte Carlo experiments) are a broad class of computational algorithms that rely on repeated random sampling to obtain numerical results; typically one runs simulations many times over in order to obtain the distribution of an unknown probabilistic entity.

Monte Carlo method

They are often used in physical and mathematical problems and are most useful when it is difficult or impossible to obtain a closed-form expression, or infeasible to apply a deterministic algorithm. Monte Carlo methods are mainly used in three distinct problem classes: optimization, numerical integration and generation of draws from a probability distribution. The modern version of the Monte Carlo method was invented in the late 1940s by Stanislaw Ulam, while he was working on nuclear weapons projects at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Astronomers discover complex organic matter exists throughout the universe. Astronomers report in the journal Nature that organic compounds of unexpected complexity exist throughout the Universe. The results suggest that complex organic compounds are not the sole domain of life but can be made naturally by stars. Prof. Random walk.

Example of eight random walks in one dimension starting at 0. The plot shows the current position on the line (vertical axis) versus the time steps (horizontal axis). A random walk is a mathematical formalization of a path that consists of a succession of random steps. For example, the path traced by a molecule as it travels in a liquid or a gas, the search path of a foraging animal, the price of a fluctuating stock and the financial status of a gambler can all be modeled as random walks, although they may not be truly random in reality.

The term random walk was first introduced by Karl Pearson in 1905.[1] Random walks have been used in many fields: ecology, economics, psychology, computer science, physics, chemistry, and biology.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9] Random walks explain the observed behaviors of processes in these fields, and thus serve as a fundamental model for the recorded stochastic activity.

This undated image provided by the journal Science a picokeystone, extracted from an aerogel tile from the Stardust interstellar dust collector. Scientists said seven microscopic particles collected by NASA's comet-chasing spacecraft, Stardust, appear to. Special relativity. Special relativity implies a wide range of consequences, which have been experimentally verified,[2] including length contraction, time dilation, relativistic mass, mass–energy equivalence, a universal speed limit, and relativity of simultaneity.

It has replaced the conventional notion of an absolute universal time with the notion of a time that is dependent on reference frame and spatial position. Rather than an invariant time interval between two events, there is an invariant spacetime interval. Relativistic Doppler effect. Diagram 1.
