It was the time of seeding, every three decades the clan of Aberoth came out in their courtyards, mewling younglings and sulking adolescents led by their elders to take part in the time-honored ritual of the Aberoth clan. Ged eyed the flower which his father took off the low hanging branch, being very still and sure in his movements as if trying to mute his motion. …


The tunnel is a place not known for its neighborhood. The inhabitants have come to term with the conditions. Things are always in a flux around here. When Rumi came into existence he was lucky to have a wave of Nourishment pass just after. Many of his siblings survived, it is usually not the case otherwise. The Nourishment is the center of their existence, the thing they live for and sometimes, the thing they die for. …


Jattaar remembered the day his mother had taken him to the local museum to see the Circle. It was not the real Circle, the actual thing stood continents away, but even this facsimile was enough to roil his insides into a sense of importance, even pride. Pride stemming from the fact that he was now old enough to be initiated into one of the core, if not the only belief, which humanity held close to their heart, the Circle. It was the basis of their peace, the basis of their survival.
This was the first step in the initiation done on…


Birendar took out the last file from this shift’s pile. One last file, standing between him and the long due vacation him and Kelsi had been planning for over a 5 middle-length time units. He peered at the contents of the file and chuckled to himself, theft. Who in their right mind was thieving around in these times?

Easing back into his chair he flipped the pages a little more, he ascertained that…


Recently I was reading this book, Savaging the civilized (like very recently, like just finished the book and came on here, that recently). Its about this English man, Verrier Elwin, who had majority of his life spent in India among almost every tribe on the craziest tribal spectrum you can think of. Drinking round the clock kinda Tribals? Check. Orgying round the clock kinda tribals? Check. Puritan tribals? Check. All of these combined into one kinda Tribals? Check that too.

His life is so interesting that he faced in total something like around five to six mid-life crises. But one…


Lately it has come to pass that I should work with a lot of concepts in probability theory and with probability functions. One thing I could not help but notice is this idea of filtration done by probability distributions.

Suppose there is distribution which acts on set of random variables. Even though I want to relate these random variables to some physical quantities, it seems that I would be doing injustice to this idea. So yeah, suppose you have some random variables and a probability distribution governing them.

The probability distribution is in some sense, filtering these configurations. Okay do…
