My nephew is working on his PhD thesis in neurology, and I am one of his test persons.

So, I am interested what he is doing; he has a lot of research going on, people fighting in some streetfight "sport", people doing decoding Morse code (I am a subject) people stupid (like me, as he said) and people exercising learning a language, learning to drive a one wheel bike, learning to use a sewing machine, learning to drive a car, learning to do uphill skiin people that can catch in their mouth a piece of food that is thrown to them, people that try to learn jiggle 3 or even 4 balls, people that try to learn snooker.

As fas as I understand their is a clear relationship - he calls that correlation - and mutual enforcement , because training the same part of the brain by learning Morse code, jiggling balls and driving a bike.

I don't believe tat, reason for him to classify me as stupid.

So, when you want to learn Morse code: Bike a lot and try jiggling balls.

Correlation does not equal causation, Or we can blame the lack of Pirates upon the high seas for global warming*.
I shall stick to my practice and leave my balls alone.

Ha, tks Dean. I just called my nephew with this knowledge that you presented, on his cell phone.

He is right now busy in a hospital (at night) when expensive equipment that shows activity of different parts of the brain, that is at night available for his research.

He answers that the probability of non causal relationship between the combination of active brain parts and a set of mentioned activities of test persons is very low.

I agree with you, when in the past certain very specific religious days of the year here in this country were cold, or some kind of birds were flying, farmers were for sure what should happen with the weather or the amount of rain and the crop the rest of the year. Even fixed forever in proverbs.

So, we can help him, is there anybody here around that learned fast Morse code, compared with the average behavior on this website, and also can bike on a one wheel bike or jiggle 3 or more balls?

The last mentioned actitity I tried once with three raw eggs, when I was a boy, but that was not succesful and not appreciated by my parents.

Sound like good advise to me ( although I just practised and practiced . . )

Remember, lots of contributors tell you there's no gain without pain ( see how they went about learning to drive ), so better to do both at once . . .

Enjoy your pain ( maybe ) though, else you might give up . . .

Dean - thanks so much for the chuckle of English humour, which I thought had vanished from my life forever (except perhaps when I look in the mirror).

When i see it correct, Niroda has virtual balls, because starting knowing nothing abt Mrse code at 27 march she arrived competent right now less then a month later.

All those guys presented themselves at 50 plus reentrants in their user group on this webdite leaving ashamed behind. They even don't know, and showing elsewhere what they are GOING to do, they always are GOING to do things and advertise that, and never ever get things done.

turk - thank you (I think). "Competent" may be a little imaginative at this point, but I'm working on it :)

. . . SNIP . . .

Even perfect correlation with a causality doesn't tell you which way round the causality runs though.

eg. which came first - increases CO2 levels or global warming.

That might be a bad example, if each of those changes is instrumental in promoting the other . . .

Did you forget to "correlate" the pan ??

Oh my, what an interesting thread you have started [deleted]. All sounding very Buddhist(!) and I must say I agree with the nephew on that basis.

On the "which came first - increased CO2 levels or global warming", reminds me of the chicken and the egg (no "correlation" with [deleted]'s experience intended).

Of course, any "effect" has more than one "cause", and they were the "effects" of previous "causes" and you can keep going like that until the cows come home (or chickens roost) and you will find that everything is connected to everything else in some way or other, ad infinitum.

My friend had 3 proper juggling balls when we were kids and I tried dozens of times to juggle them at least once successfully. They went all over the place every time. But, as the brain is constantly "rewiring" as we add life's experiences to it, perhaps now I could do it. Maybe I will go outside and pick up 3 mangoes and give it a go and report on my experiment later!

The chicken and egg apparent paradoxical causality dilemma isn't such, due to a convention . . .

i.e. we say a chicken's egg not an eggs's chicken

so

the first bird to satisfy the criteria for being categorized as a chicken
was hatched from an egg laid by the last evolutionary pre-cursor to chickens - the bird where the last mutation took place.

The first chicken's egg was then laid by the first hen chicken . .

. . so the chicken came before the chicken's egg
. . . by convention.

Almost makes me hungry until I remember that some sort of pre-reptile laid the first egg . . .

You can probably buy them in Waitrose . .






Posted: 2018-04-27 01:26
hahaha Chris, yes I love it! ....but who came first, the pre-reptile or the egg?

Maybe Waitrose has the answer. Aren't there laws these days where they have to state the origin of the produce? Thinking about it, I don't think I would buy them - they could be pretty old.

I have to admit the feeling of maintaining mental equilibrium juggling, unicycling or copying code is quite similar. Time to dust off the beanbags!
I'm reminded hearing about of infants who don't spend sufficient time crawling ('cause they're stuck in a walker) later having trouble reading.
...wonder if tap dancing could untangle my Q/Y Morse dyslexia

Try it and let us know - in the meantime, I shall enjoy the wonderfully entertaining picture you have painted of yourself as I continue my mango juggling experiments :)

Lolol! I think maybe this missed an April 1st timeslot....
