We have completed 14% of the 21st century and we still rely on dead dinosaurs as primary energy source.

Maybe in another 50 million years we can at least use dead humans as energy.

September 7th, Brazil's Independence Day.. a day still celebrated by military fanfarres. Ironically, we never got ride of the ghost of military dictatorship which oficially ended more than 25 years ago. Double ironically, its citizens are running, blindly, towards heavier and heavier "mind dependence" on the Powers that Be in order to play their parts in the slavery machinery.


"Quando eu era uma criança
Implorava pro meu pai me levar
Pra ver o desfile da independência
Sentia orgulho de ser um mini patriota
Mas agora eu cresci
E vejo mais um motivo idiota

Para mostrar
Armamentos antiquados
Soldados mal treinados
Tanques enferrujados

Sete de setembro
Data tão festiva
Mais uma piada
Dessa terra tão querida

Sete de setembro

Para mostrar

"He walks alone
Under the big city lights
He always knows
Just when the time is right
He never shows what he's thinking
He keeps it inside
Because he's
Too Cool for School"

"He's got his own way
Of getting things done
He's always
Looking out for number one
Don't try to beat him
Cause he's already won
And he's
Too Cool for School"

Is it life or just to play my worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway"

Introduction

World Line with Finite Points Possessing Vanishing Partial Derivatives       (about 500 words)

by Diogo A. F. Melo


_"Most space cadets, facing the sudden appearance of a black hole in their traced route, will desperate over the promise of meeting certain death inside its gravitational singularity. What they fail to realize is, given the proper black hole angular momentum and spaceship's path configuration, the singularity can be properly avoid and a wormhole leading to a different space-time point can be crossed. It's up to the pilot to face the uncertainty of such a journey in a positive, upbeat way instead of avoiding the exploration of exciting new worlds and new civilizations by paralysis caused by fear of the unknown."_ - Hyperspace Navigation, Cosmic Topological Defects, Alien Diplomacy and All That - Rookie Edition

I have a physics major with a solid background on theoretical physics, mainly in non-linear field theories and solitons. That section of my world line thought me the importance of conservative quantities in physics and the role played by symmetries in the Universe, including all the magic that happens when they are broken. I salute the Noether Theorem, the Standard Model and all those beautiful variational principles without which none of us would be here to tell any stories.

I did some teaching along all my life, which thought me that one of the most efficient ways of learning something was to digest it long enough so you could properly teach it to someone else.

I also have some experience with computer maintenance, where I learned the hard way the important role played by the second law of thermodynamics in the inner workings of our silicon machine tools. A feel things in life beats the thrill of trying to install an OS on a computer made by hand out of cannibalized parts of dead machines while using a large piece of ice to cool down the interior air of a desktop cabinet (true story). I also did some fooling around with web development (Drupal). I have some programming skills, mainly working with simulated physics experiments in university classes (Pascal, FORTRAN, Maple) and some Java and Python fiddling aside. And, almost needless to say, I do believe Linux is the way to go if you want to explore to the maximum, most efficient way, your logical gates gestalt.

I also adventured myself as a Human Reliability Assessment analyst working for Brazil´s Nuclear Power Plants Angra 1, 2 and 3  in their Probabilistic Security Analysis group, where I learned the painfully way how predictable behavior is directly proportional to one's mechanical degree of response.

Finally, after doing all those crazy stuff above, and having occasional nervous breaking downs which twisted my path to a different direction, I decided to do like Sinatra did, my way, and follow my true calling. That calling which was present in my life since childhood, when I held Asimov's "I, Robot" anthology of short stories. The same calling which propelled me to enroll a Physics major at the first place, in a country where all the "sane" people follow a lawyer, engineer or medic life if they want to have financial stability. I decided to tell stories for a living.

The End (?)
