life, love and quantum computing...

i haven't been posting much to this lj recently--i got to thinking that the various brain functions might have up and down cycles with different periods; i mean, all that business about left and right brain functions is probably a lot more complex than might appear at first gloss--it seems pretty well accepted (unless i'm way out of date on my "knowledge") that the right half of the brain deals more with the "big picture" while the left just loves to play around with the "details" (or maybe i have it backwards, but never mind)--there's some crossover and apparently areas of the brain can be "reprogrammed" to perform new functions--researchers appear to be able to point to places in the brain where various functions, such as vision, speech, motor activities and a host of others, take place (generally)--anyway, what i was thinking, is that perhaps if the multitude of functional areas operate with a variety of frequencies regarding optimal/minimal efficiencies, then i should not be overly concerned with the times when i just don't feel like doing certain things (and i am working to develop this lack of concern)--i am, after all, i tell myself, trying to tune into the rhythmic frequencies in brain activity :)--sooo, some days are ripe for putting together words in an understandable manner and some days aren't--likewise, visual design solutions can be expected to really flow along nicely to a satisfactory conclusion at some times and be hideously illusive at other times--as somebody once said, there's a season for sowing and a season for reaping--the problem occurs when i want to reap at the wrong time; i just have to be ever aware of where my head is and not try to force myself to chop wood when it's an auspicious time for considering/researching some aspect of life, love or quantum computers, speaking of which, i've noted with interest, in recent times, some articles on the future of computers, specifically how they might work in conjunction with q-mechanics--i've had some difficulty getting a handle on the concept--but i have hope in that yesterday i got hold of a recent book by geroge johnson (nyt science guy) on that very subject, a shortcut through time (not to be confused with a brief history of time or a timely history of briefs)--this is not a mere coincidence, of course, i put in a request for said book at the library--the fact that the request was filled in but 2 days, while a request for a new (though not as recent as johnson's book) novel by best selling author, julie garwood, killjoy, described by reviewers as 'a great thriller' and 'nail biting romantic suspense', is still on my 'holds to be filled' list (it's been on this list for over 2 months), might indicate that fluffy, almost mind numbing fiction (the reading of which might be considered a substitue for alcohol or other drugs as a means to escape for a while) is 30 times, or more, popular as a diversion than a book dealing with cutting edge science (i realize this may not seem the soundest logic, but fuzzy logic does have a place in the grand scheme of things)--as an aside, i awoke at 5 this morning; finally realized, after remaining in bed with mind racing for a half hour, i should get up and get going--after the usual morning rituals, i cracked open the johnson book and found, much to my delight, that it's quite readable and, thus far, at least, very clear in presentation of concepts--i read for a couple of hours--and now here i am pushing some of my head out through my finger tips, which hasn't happened recently (as i mentioned, way back there)--in between these 2 activities, i interacted a bit with m before she left for work, wandered about outside and realized it's neither snowing nor raining and therefore a good day to get back to garden tilling--but if the "wood chopping center" (for lack of a better term) of my brain is on a down cycle now, which would seem to be the case, what the fuck's a guy to do? i mean, it's probably going rain, snow or freeze tomorrow and if i don't get the sowing done pretty soon, there won't be any reaping going on down the road--life so often leaves one in a state of perplexity and doubt, does it not?
