Dialectic logic has been studied by philosophers like Hegel, Marx, Althusser, Adorno, Habermas and so on. It was sufficient enough to explain the dynamic behavior in linear systems. In linear signals and systems, causality, probability, stochastics and randomness etc. can be explained by dialectic logic. It has found its applications across the field of formal linguistics, physics, economics, culture etc. However in the era of dense real and surreal experiences and imaginations, something more specific than dialectic logic has become necessary. Hence I am positioning an asymptotic logic as an epistemic category in the realm of universal pragmatics which is a wider and deeper fabric than ideological lattices. Asymptotic logic is running deep through dialectic systems.

Meanings in life
Purpose in life
Perhaps in my genes
Like granaries of infinities
Perhaps like in miseries
Like gems burned in soils
Perhaps it’s quite relative
Like you say a jigsaw puzzle
Perhaps there is nothing at all
Void, irrational, irreducible
Like the impulses and instincts
Of my born voyage
Perhaps it’s an integral sum of
My affinities, atoms and the insects
I love and sects I am born to hate
Perhaps it’s a fractal finitude
Of my broken arms, charms and arms
Like the ambiguous synonyms
I am destined to weave into this last
Perhaps it’s an ephemeral epoch
Of my sun, soil, solitude, solenoid
And burning coils and magnets
And brittle mirrors in my larvae
Perhaps it’s being written
Bringing ashes, glory, grief and gory
When I worship solar storms and Solaris
Perhaps it’s being unwritten
As I demolish and demean my tempest
Unto this utterances of prismatic promises
Perhaps it’s a synthesis of written and unwritten, like a crystal lattice unfold
Perhaps it’s a pursuit
After my musings, myriad of shadows
Lean, limbs, limping lumps of lasting leafs
I tether here and there, like a flow of pulses
I wither where and wear, waiting for warps
It’s a form of life after a firm life, long longings
It’s a firm life after a form of life, lean lenses
Like a leech, larvae, lava living lipid liquids
Social Networks are part of our life big time. We spend hours surfing through the profiles, walls and news feeds of our friends and foes alike. Social networks create micro experiences of vivid emotions, in fact a bewildering variety of emotions and flurry of thought. There is a lot of impulsive expressions in social networks. Fine, what about the formation and distribution of knowledge in social networks?
Information exist in the digital systems, but knowledge is always created through human act of cognition and re-cognition. It can only be represented and absorbed in social networks. Hence the full life-cycle of information exchange and knowledge management should materialize in social networks.
Not all information becomes knowledge, but some grains of knowledge get created and distributed through social networks. The challenge is that people seldom reflect and analyze the knowledge within the social networks. Information gets assimilated within seconds, perhaps like the attention span of a Gold fish. However, knowledge takes time to gets developed in human mind. It is not just the analytical insights that we are talking about. It is about the collection of hypothesis, inductions, deductions, inferences, critical analysis and reflections that we sum up as a knowledge collective.
The unique nature of knowledge is that it is not something a machine can produce. An act of human cognition and re-cognition is required to create a quantum of knowledge. Knowledge is generated in the human mind, not in the human – machine interfaces. It is a kind of space-time integration of information and impulses in the semantic ocean of collective unconscious.
Perhaps nature of knowledge is the single most beautiful entity that quantum physics should have studied. Unfortunately, quantum physics had always its own plastic affections to uncertainty and could not go beyond the ramifications about quantum consciousness. Knowledge is a dialectic melange of synchronic and diachronic coefficients of collective unconscious that gets superposed with the synaptic impulses from our experiences. Our synaptic impulses are nothing but the cerebral expressions of information exchanges. There is a semiotic continuum at work in human act of cognition and re-cognition that transforms every genetic expressions to powerful symbols that human mind can easily relate. It is all together a beautiful nature at work in the formation of knowledge in human mind.
A Pendulum that sweeps through the garbage
Of emotions, timeless, brainless, priceless
Variety of things, Plenty of noises, yet the mass
is not yielding to the love for gravity among
all other things, life is what this pendulum
longs for, ever inside the dilation, a crisis moment
for time, midst the pedantry thoughts about life and species
that carves the next leaf of life, may be olive or orange
that catches fire, way above the prophecies of the mountains
When flow is upset, water is not for the lips
When frames ceases, energy is not for the universes
Let this pendulum exist in human frames of reference
Let they have their plenitudes in our penurious lives
Let us form a pendulous exit from this exodus of thoughts
A village awaits you, A glowing tip of a fire awaits you
A selfless smoke and an army of ashes awaits you
You are already half past the midnight
You are simply a human pendulum
There are only three moments in the history of humankind. Yesterday, today and tomorrow! We traverse through these three moments every day, every minute, and every epoch of time, consciously or unconsciously ! Various forms of consciousness emerge out of these interactions. Political consciousness, digital consciousness, ethnic consciousness, racial consciousness, class consciousness etc. There are many more ways of seeing time.
Yesterday, we have seen ages of empires and nation states. We witnessed the ages of dictators and philosophers. We traversed the ages of wars and epidemics. We read, re-read and interpret the instances and phases of time. Some of call us study them under the frameworks of history, archaeology and geography. Thus yesterday is as materialistic as the hardest element you find in the periodic table !
Today is as brief as a ‘do it now’ moment ! It is the confluence of our present experiences, past engagements, and future expectations. Hence it is chaotic and complex as you can imagine. Thus in a minute measure of time, myriads of events are happening. Today is an age of data, as they say. Today is an age of information, as they say.Today is an age of finance capital. Today is the age of global trade and market economy. Nothing cryptic about it!
What about tomorrow? Heaps of predictions are flying around us. Visionaries say it may be an age of advanced analytics, age of visual culture, age of big picture, age of design thinking, age of digital imagination and so on. Will tomorrow be more ordered or chaotic than today? It is not a plain yes / no question to answer. We aspire to control tomorrow more precisely than yesterday and today. The question is whether it is possible?
If we observe our lives more closely now, we can understand that tomorrow is already happening. We are living in the world of predictions and prescriptions. Prescriptive analytics is as popular as predictive or diagnostic analytics. We predict weather, epidemics, elections, global trade, future of investments etc.
Now coming back to our earlier reflections about the entities and nature of time, we need to think how is time evolving as it is now? Time is non-linear. When we look back into the time zones, it is more ordered with webs of knowledge and ignorance interwoven. When we look at the current space time, it is chaotic and dynamic, with webs of knowledge and information encircling each other. What about looking into the time zones of tomorrow. It is the height of uncertainty. The only thing we can do is to create minute integrals of fragmented predictions about future.
We know that future will not be perfect as we imagine. Yet we can create some specific events in future through our control over certain political and economic realities. Though we can manufacture some episodes of time, the larger pie of future will be beyond our imagination. Hence time and space in future will offer more exciting challenges at a faster pace than today. Hence agility in imagination and analytics will be one of the essential DNA for survival for any enterprise or community or ethnic race or individual entrepreneur.
Everyone is a thief
In the almanac of the God almighty
Everyone is a priceless beast
In the valley of darkness where Satan encircles
I may have lost a lot of sheen
Sun bemoaned at earth
His only brainchild
His only living daughter
His only beautiful face
He has a lot of scars
He has a paining corona
He has a scarlet fever
He has a fissure in the heart
He has piled up his fusions
Just another day and night
When Earth embraces moon alone
Sun shines and embarks another twilight
As plain it seems, we stars see only the dew and dust
Next time you love your dear one’s pupil
Be aware that Sun loves your mother earth too!
