### No one understands me

Do not be upset, if people do not understand you. It means you know more than them. Use this knowledge to your own advantage. But don’t lose touch with reality.

### "Random" constant

123583145943707741561785381909987527965167303369549325729101

This constant is created by adding two last numbers in the sequence and making the next as the last digit of the sum: 1+2->3; 2+3->5; 3+5->8; 5+8->3, 8+3->1; ...

This constant has been created with the following ideas in mind.
1. It has to look random
2. It has be long enough so that the probability to match another random sequence is low
3. Easy to reproduce by a person with a pen and paper
4. Not based on any specific or personal information.

The length of this constant is 60 because after 60 digits the process repeats the sequence over again.

### Religious

I am not religious. I do not feel too much insecurity in my life for that.

Can anyone justify aggression? Act of aggression or violence is always based on the idea of some future events. One can make reasonable justification when referring to something that will, can, or may happen. Now an interesting point is that all future events are always mental. They are never facts. An intelligent mind can foresee future events. Science makes great achievements. However those kind of events are never a base for aggression or violence because the models do not involve agents with intentional behaviour. When models do involve human players, the future events cease being facts. And said above justification becomes based on assumptions, strong or weak still assumptions, which are mere somebody's opinions.

### Fair game

A fair game is fair only if you make the rules

A known Chaitin's quote (*) can be succinctly expressed in a short phrase:

Understanding is programming

According to this statement, this very statement cannot be understood before we can program concepts: understanding and programming. If we were able to program these concepts, then it would be a discovery of true AGI. Hence the paradox is in the fact that its solution is not achievable before Technological Singularity.

(*) ... you understand something only if you can program it. (You, not someone else!) Otherwise you don't really understand it, you only think you understand it.          [emphasis in the original]

### Defective mind

It is really difficult to see your own mental deficiencies because our brain is very good at making things up to look self-consistent.  To find out those one has to set his mind to scientific infinite cycle of hypothesising, theorising, and experimenting. But even starting with a hypothesis is hard. Look for clues of inconsistency of your behaviour, beliefs and conclusions.

### Memory

```I can hardly bear confusion
And realise surreal
If all this is a mere illusion
Why does it feel so real
```
