A fantastical encounter. Version 5F I. She saw mountains in her dream. The Sun, joined by a few distant silver crescents, illuminates one side of her dome window as Ann wakes up in the control chamber, rejuvenated, but still slightly fatigued, thanks to the prolonged weightlessness. Slightly disoriented, she takes a brief moment to confirm … Continue reading Drops of Europa
I am exactly 20 years old now. BJT 1998-05-12 15:10. PDT 2018-05-12 00:10. 据我的父母所讲，我在二十年前的这个时刻来到了这个世界。从那时，到现在，接近一半的时候，我渐渐意识到我所知道的一切都开始于那个时间，连带我所可能知道的一切。我时而飘渺地看见了无法逃离的归宿，但也把路上的一切风景留给了命运。 感谢我的父母、家人、前人、祖国、世界。感谢我所能够认识的正在读这段话的所有人。二十岁是一个新的开始。 According to my parents, my journey began this moment exactly 20 years ago. About half way between then and where am I now, I began recognizing that everything I ever knew began on 12/May/1998, along with everything I will ever … Continue reading 1510
Hi there! This is the last planned update for March. Sorry for the spam-like update rate. https://youtu.be/N8eY7CrzhSc
It’s not about overview effect; I’m not on drugs. The story was long: it once resided in two places across a continent; now it’s three feet across but also spread through all time that I could conjure. If I can invent time machine, this Day is where I travel back to. That's been the full … Continue reading November 17th
Three profound stories from my middle school days.
I am still attempting to fit every academic desire into the schedule for next semester — last one at Berkeley, second last one as an undergraduate student: Quantum, Introductory Cosmology, GR, advanced mechanics, Stats mech, topology, complex analysis, cellular biology, music theory, existentialism, and perhaps a language, documentary filmmaking and theatre (thanks). While writing this … Continue reading Directions
Not that I intend to celebrate the passage of time too 'often', as I do to myself when alone, but happy Anniversary to ftdsci. It's been good staying here. There are 17 days until school starts under an eclipsed sun, and, before that, 7 days until I leave for California, so maybe it's about time … Continue reading Here’s to the First Year of f-STEM
It's noted on my passport, and, I guess, somewhere confidential where they keep track of things, that I, 16, entered Aotearoa for the first time on 13 July 2014, fresh out of my Grade 10 in continental Eurasia, as a visitor to a family member in this country, carrying from home some holiday homework, half-scribble … Continue reading Three Anniversaries
Recite π as a binary decimal, if you wish. On π day, 2014, at about 15:9.26, I ate a chocolate π during a Chinese literature class, got nearly choked, and had to leave the classroom to search for water... Thank you to my teacher for not being too troubled by my absurd neediness. On … Continue reading (BITS of) π Day Memories
Long is my thought process; short is the plot, if there is any. With my certainty, I could tell that this story actually happened, with many more pieces of "my" life harmoniously unfolding in the same universe that views ours as a distant dream -- as though momentum wasn't conserved in our space. And … Continue reading Momentum: A Long Short Story Long Short.
