The Top 10 Relationship Words That Arent Translatable Into English | Marriage 3.0 Here are my top ten words, compiled from online collections, to describe love, desire and relationships that have no real English translation, but that capture subtle realities that even we English speakers have felt once or twice. As I came across these words I’d have the occasional epiphany: “Oh yeah! That’s what I was feeling...” Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start. Oh yes, this is an exquisite word, compressing a thrilling and scary relationship moment. Yuanfen (Chinese): A relationship by fate or destiny. From what I glean, in common usage yuanfen means the "binding force" that links two people together in any relationship. But interestingly, “fate” isn’t the same thing as “destiny.” Cafuné (Brazilian Portuguese): The act of tenderly running your fingers through someone's hair. Ya’aburnee (Arabic): “You bury me.”

John Conways Game of Life The Game The Game of Life is not your typical computer game. It is a 'cellular automaton', and was invented by Cambridge mathematician John Conway. This game became widely known when it was mentioned in an article published by Scientific American in 1970. It consists of a collection of cells which, based on a few mathematical rules, can live, die or multiply. The Simulation The Rules For a space that is 'populated': Each cell with one or no neighbors dies, as if by solitude. Each cell with four or more neighbors dies, as if by overpopulation. Each cell with two or three neighbors survives. For a space that is 'empty' or 'unpopulated' Each cell with three neighbors becomes populated. The Controls Choose a figure from the pull-down menu or make one yourself by clicking on the cells with a mouse.

Anécdotas sobre el matemático Kurt Gödel Actualmente estoy leyendo el libro Pi in the Sky. Counting, thinking and being, de John D. Barrow. Lo que me incomoda del libro, es que siendo Barrow un científico no haga notaciones directas del material que cita, salvo algunas excepciones. El libro contiene muchos aspectos históricos interesantes de la matemática y al final nos da una lista de los libros en que se ha basado, lo cual deja confuso al lector, no sabemos qué es producción propia del autor y qué no lo es. Más allá de esta crítica, hay varios capítulos interesantes, que nos hacen pensar. Albert Einstein y Kurt Gödel. En EEUU trabajó como profesor en el Instituto de Estudios Avanzados de Princeton; su trabajo más conocido fueron los dos teoremas de incompletitud. Barrow cuenta que Gödel era sumamente excéntrico y falleció dejando de comer, ya que se había obsesionado con la idea que lo querían envenenar. Si alguien lo quería entrevistar, fijaba una fecha y un horario exacto; luego no asistía a la cita.
