May 10, 2012 said that; “why nice people are so cold. because there is some ice in being nice.” It also said a Feynman Joke. Its a made-up joke. Incidentally, the day it was said, was one-day before Feynman’s Birth… Read More ›
Feynman and his beautiful mind was just an amazement of brilliance.
My Understanding of this marvelous insight.
you don’t have to grasp the maths behind something to see what people are calling to be brilliant. (of-course maths can be wrong and that’s where many can focus)
Check this out; D = √2(M+1) – 1
Feynman and Ralph calculated this, they used to go to a restaurant (in Pasadena?) together. They found that if you are to go to a restaurant lets say 10 times (in a month lets say) then how many times you can take an un-rated meal before you try only the best-rated of that meal to be able to claim after the 10 meals “I have always had the meals in a way I have the best-average rating of meals”
( if such rating are available, but you don’t know the rating, and there is only a maximum number of meals available in the eatery, then let that number be N, N numbers of meals you can ever try, each, one time)
Mandela and Feynman were born the same year. 1918. But while Feynman passed away in 1988, Mandela this year, it gives Mandela 25 more years to live (about 95 years old, Mandela). Thats a nearly 25% difference. What makes such wide disparity in how long people live?
On afterthoughts, (from this) statistics is a way of hiding our ignorance by allowing more and more attributes into a particular question, to the level our ignorance is no more useless. Thats the difference between science and religion: statistics. Statistics is the difference between science and religion. Religion brushes everything with one broom. Science needs various sizes for various tasks. In the end there is a difference even if its not so visible.
