Brilliant, isn’t it?

And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321



Now, take a look at this…


101%



From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:



What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%.

How about ACHIEVING 101%?


What equals 100% in life?


Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:


If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


If:



H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K


8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%


And:


K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E


11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%


But:


A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E


1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%



THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:




L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D


12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%


Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there, It’s the Love of God that will put you over the top!

Voyager 1 & 2

I have long been fascinated with the exploratory spacecrafts sent into space by NASA some 37 years ago. Human beings do not have much capacity to travel in space as we are dependent on so many things on this planet, including the air that we breathe, the water we drink, the food we need to consume and the temperature that must be maintained constantly for us to survive. Still the desire to discover what lies beyond the solar system remains. Both the energy required for us to travel on such a journey and the sheer time that the travel takes, is formidable. For now we have to rely on the spacecrafts: Voyager 1 and 2.

Voyager 1 entered interstellar space (outside of our solar system) in August 2012. NASA’s web site dedicated to the Voyage of Discovery is pretty detailed: it contains a lot of the images taken by the spacecrafts, among other things.

Voyager is carrying a disc, dubbed the golden record, which contains a sampling of sights and sounds from our planet. The idea behind it carrying data from earth in case it is discovered by some other space explorers far far away. There is a list of all the stuff that’s on the disc on the web site as well. While browsing through it, I found that there is an image of a street scene from Pakistan – complete with rickshaws, taxis, people on bicycles, a woman beggar, a goat and cow sitting on a heap of what looks like garbage, horse carts and a family on a vespa scooter. Isn’t that something?
