Eksistensi (Semu)


“Pokoknya ya, Ji, gue mau follower instagram gue nambah abis internship bareng lo,” ujar Oknum N serius kepada saya akhir tahun lalu. Oknum N menjalani internship selama satu tahun bersama saya di Dompu.

“Setiap kali lo posting foto, jangan lupa mention instagram gue,” tambahnya.


kayaknya untuk media, lebih cocok menggunakan istilah popularitas dibandingkan eksistensi. 

1. Linguistic Intelligence: the capacity to use language to express what’s on your mind and to understand other people. Any kind of writer, orator, speaker, lawyer, or other person for whom language is an important stock in trade has great linguistic intelligence.

2. Logical/Mathematical Intelligence: the capacity to understand the underlying principles of some kind of causal system, the way a scientist or a logician does; or to manipulate numbers, quantities, and operations, the way a mathematician does.

3. Musical Rhythmic Intelligence: the capacity to think in music; to be able to hear patterns, recognize them, and perhaps manipulate them. People who have strong musical intelligence don’t just remember music easily, they can’t get it out of their minds, it’s so omnipresent.

4. Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence: the capacity to use your whole body or parts of your body (your hands, your fingers, your arms) to solve a problem, make something, or put on some kind of production. The most evident examples are people in athletics or the performing arts, particularly dancing or acting.

5. Spatial Intelligence: the ability to represent the spatial world internally in your mind — the way a sailor or airplane pilot navigates the large spatial world, or the way a chess player or sculptor represents a more circumscribed spatial world. Spatial intelligence can be used in the arts or in the sciences.

6. Naturalist Intelligence: the ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) and sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations). This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef.

7. Intrapersonal Intelligence: having an understanding of yourself; knowing who you are, what you can do, what you want to do, how you react to things, which things to avoid, and which things to gravitate toward. We are drawn to people who have a good understanding of themselves. They tend to know what they can and can’t do, and to know where to go if they need help.

8. Interpersonal Intelligence: the ability to understand other people. It’s an ability we all need, but is especially important for teachers, clinicians, salespersons, or politicians — anybody who deals with other people.

9. Existential Intelligence: the ability and proclivity to pose (and ponder) questions about life, death, and ultimate realities.

Howard Gardner’s seminal Theory of Multiple Intelligences, originally published in 1983, which revolutionized psychology and education by offering a more dimensional conception of intelligence than the narrow measures traditional standardized tests had long applied.  (via versteur)

i wonder, what makes science and engineering different?

Me Me Me Generation


Tahun lalu, Majalah Time menulis judul di atas sebagai berita utama untuk salah satu edisinya. Judul lengkapnya “The Me Me Me Generation: Millennials are lazy, entitled narcissists who still live with their parents”. Saya mengetahui edisi Time tersebut saat sedang main-main di Periplus PIM bersama Oknum F, Oknum V, dan Oknum N. Saat Oknum F menunjukkan majalah Time tersebut kepada saya, saya langsung tersenyum-senyum melihatnya, merasa tersindir. Bahan yang sebenarnya tidak penting itu diangkat menjadi satu bahasan khusus oleh Time. Berarti ada suatu masalah yang penting pada generasi Millennials ini.


Millenials adalah kita.


Minggu kemarin, gw abis nonton film yang  judulnya Enemy. Dibuat berdasarkan novel berjudul The Double oleh Jose Saramago. Hari ini, gw browsing, nemu film yang judulnya The Double, dibuat berdasarkan novel dengan judul yang sama, dengan pengarang Fyodor Dostoevsky. Keduanya tampil dalam Toronto International Film Festival 2013.

Kebetulan? #bingung

'Sometimes the facts in my head get bored and decide to take a walk in my mouth. Frequently this is a bad thing.'

So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld (via ofyoungblood)

Virus biogenesis theories and the discussions around them - are they just a distraction or what?

After watching Helix, I got this strange, brave mind that virus was initially bioengineered to control global human population. Then, why does the most lethal virus only kills a small number of human? Answer : unknown. A pilot project, perhaps. Perhaps they are preparing something much bigger, but keeping the number of the subject will be more economical. That’s why, only certain people who got a lethalsting of the bioengineered virus.

Virus could be the most effective weapon ever. It can infiltrate enemy border without get spotted, kills a large number of enemies fast, and what makes it worse than any machine gun - is the capability to change into something stranger than it ever recognized - some Influenza virus got this special tactics to “change their suit” to makes them looks like something familiar to living system - that’s how they infiltrate the cells, override them to make billions copy of theirselves, till the cells can’t stand anymore of them - died - explodes, scattering new copies of the virus.

Later then, the purpose is changed into creating demands for the antidote, vaccine, drugs, and whatever you call upon them. Economical thing. Who cares how crowded the world will be, if you have all the money in the world? You can enslave everyone. You can even conquer the world. Whatever.

Play God, Pay The Price.

Are you scared? Or are you not ready? There is a difference.
