Finally, my problems in the lab were solved, and the results were pouring out satisfactorily. Expectedly, I may be able to close all lab works within the next few weeks, and, after that, I will focus solely on writing my dissertation.
So after a difficult time in my professional career, it might be a good time to talk about one of the most cruel times in modern human history, the Halocaust.
Essentially, it's all about unreasonable hates, jealousy, misconception, seeking a scapegoat for their failure, seeking supremacy for their race, and politics.
At the basic level, all humans are equal.... There is no supreme race among us regardless of their religion, geographical settings, and skin colors.
For some reasons, people in the country where halocaust was tragically initiated, a politician was successfully using their economic problems as a key issue to point out whom was to blame.
The Jews were scapegoats on this, and they thought that the Jews were a lower class of humans and they deserved to be eradicated, all of them.
With this madness, almost all of Jewish population in Europe ranging from the population in Germany, Poland, and many others were almost wiped out.... like a pile of dirt on their front porch.
Thus, this event is truly a "memorable" event where humanity should reflect upon.
There were several great movies about the Halocaust. To name a few, they are the Schindler's List, Life is Beautiful, the Pianist, and Munich.
These movies won more than 15 awards from the Academy.... Some of them were awarded with the Best Picture Award...
The question "why" is certainly out of the question.... It's the most remarkably tragic event in all mankinds. So, perception of the gravity among audiences is well-perceived.
For me, I liked the Life is Beautiful most... Because the movie did not illustrate the Halocaust in an extreme fashion.... I, as an audience, already had known about it. But, the story within the movie was a story of ordinary human beings with love and care....
The Schindler's List came in the second, personally... Although the cruelty of the Halocaust was portraited so graphically, the story of a German "boss" who tried to save "his employees" was beyond extraordinary... and, certainly, it captured many hearts.... So was mine.
================================= Note: My life has been intertwined with works and many others. New responsibility has emerged, resulting less and less time for my ordinary life. Although, a love to write is still intact... But having less time is related to having less imagination.... Therefore, I could not come up with new writings for quite some times.
It might be a good time for me to leave this forum for moment.... Please take it as Mr. A.T. is having a sabbactatical leave or something like that....
As noted above, my love to write is still the same... and will not be changed. Sometimes somehow, I hope I could come back and give some thoughts in this blog once more.
Cheers, Mr. A.T. June 6th, 2008
My pen-name in Pantip is amatuer translator. Actually, I'm a lousy translator with lame translation. My pen-name is somewhat misleading, I have no background in linguistics what-so-ever. Anyway I love to read, write and communicate with people...
Reading is my most favorite hobby. I read everything from shopping bags to articles in theoretical physics. I do research and teaching for my living. So, reading, writing, thinking and doing research works are my everyday routine.
I would like to define myself as a person who is accepting new ideas and adopting those into my way of life.
I believe in power of knowledge/education. I think every society can be a better society with knowledge. Ignorance can be dispelled by it. Humanity can live sustainably and harmoniously with each other along with its biosphere with understandings in the nature surrounding it.
Apart from my philosophical thoughts reflecting who I am, I can tell you something I like or love in particular;
I love dogs.... Particularly, labradore retrievers.... One day, I would like to spend my time and life with them as a big part of my family.
Zhuge Liang is my hero. With his wisdom and faithfulness, he led a tiny army to a mighty and formidable kingdom. He left his humble residence with a hope to come back. But, sadly, he had never returned and died far far away from home in a horse carriage in a battle field. If I could choose where I would, I would say where-ever my lovely wife was nearby.
I value happiness and my family as my first priority. My profession and my philosophy come in the second. Pursuit in wealth has never been in my desire.
I'm glad to be your friend, and look forward to seeing you around krub.
