'until it feels right'
« on: December 19, 2018, 09:39:30 pm »
Little curious, myself...
A coder I was once talking to said:



"I am curious
do you do math on paper, on some program
or you just sit and think until it "feels" right

yep
i use knowledge
i draw it
too
vision is knowledge...
there's not much math to do

ok, so you have some math somewhere
o, really"



How else am I supposed to come up with the grand slam idea? I sit n think, until it feels right - until I am satisfied. Repeat. Before you know it I got a big plan! What the hell is the coder talking about? Playin around in the python box entering code? Chalking up proving-theorem-formulas? Do yous do this? Tell me how you go trough the day. Ex. sit for 5 hours, open notepad, write formulas on paper, test a tweak of a net, etc.

‘Until it feels right’ is ok for the initial idea/ theory but is useless if you require a working model.  If you are personally satisfied with just an idea then… rock on… the world needs theorists.

Unfortunately ‘until if feels right’ is based on your current understanding of the problem space, and your current state of health/ mind. Also each new piece of new knowledge you learn will affect the outcome, you will never achieve satisfactory results… you are basing concepts of ever increasing complexity on unproven concepts.

It ‘feels right’ that you should sink in quicksand… but you won’t.

Think… think again... build… test… think… think again... build… test…

Here's "some program" pseudocode...

Do math on paper, on some program
or you just sit and think until it "feels" right


Code: [Select]
Dim it As Integer
Dim feelsRight As Integer
it = 1
feelsRight = 2

Do Until it > feelsRight
    on(Paper)
    on(Program)
    it = it + 1
Loop

Pseudo Mathematics Notation

do(it)
it ∈ feelsRight


Locksuit, do you think it feels right?

I don't do math nor code, so I can't feel this one.
