Cause and effect - an musing

Why I write this post?? Because I see a lot of enmity actions, ugly debate, until the human tragedy that is the attack on the twin tower of World Trade Center (often referred to as WTC 9/11). Also flood disaster in China, India, United States, Indonesia and other countries. There were many horrifying incidents throughout the history of human life until today. What the wrong? Okay... okaaay, you can says that is the foolish question, but...
Here, I write several happening which I worry about. According to you whether it is true of the cause and effect below:
  1. Global warming. Cause: gas emissions of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). I ever heard a joke: Too many human cause human body also produces warm. Just feel in a room (3x4 M) with 1 person and with 20 person.
  2. Flood and landslide. Cause: randomPhi dig of the forest.
  3. Conflict, war, terrorism. Cause: egoism, claim on the truth. Pssst... I rarely heard the claim on the mistake (ha..ha..).
  4. Racialism. Cause: superior feelings and under estimate to others.
  5. hmm... please help me for the next. Just for sharing.

The Old Testament that I like very much :
  1. A mother who afraid to swim will immediately jump into the pond in order to rescue her child who be under water.
  2. A dog that already pushed in a corner, if continuing to be pressed will turn to oppose you.
  3. Body could be controlled but NOT to the heart.

End of words, anything that will be conducted, think first about its result, whether will disrupt the equilibrium or not. For example: equilibrium of politic, equilibrium of spiritual, equilibrium of nature (etc. help me for the next, please). I write this post just flowing from what I think without being edited again. May seem as random writing.

  1. Hi Ely, thanks for the comment.. I'm afraid that equilibrium or balance of politics, economy, people and environment could not be met because the policy makers are bias...and our wish to live a happy and balance environemnt also oppose to the interest of the few people in power (governance)

  2. Dear Iis
    The "cause" is on the policy makers and personal interest of the few people. I know it's not simple to raise our hope. I think... global warming is our responsible to our next generation. Please hand-in-hand together. There are many simple things that we can do to get involved and helping their programs. Please search with the keyword "global warming"
    Thank you very much for commenting here.

  3. The reality of cause and effect is undeniable. In fact that is the only truth in the phenomenal world. Good begets good and bad begets bad. As Easterners, this is something that all of us learn from childhood.

    Take your last blog. You overestimate lady's capability, which is a cause and she bangs into you, which is an effect. You are a big shot in a car, which is a cause, and the bystanders take her side, which is an effect! It just goes on and on like that.

  10. crude oil crisis in US and China has enforced them to generate a biochemical energy by maize. When the government announce the program, the food farmer in that two countries move from the rice to maize. And the food crisis has came since the food scarcity make the price rise.

    Is it CAUSE -- EFFECT?

  12. Dear Bunda Rierie
    Wow... anda suka peptah itu juga. Terimakasih untuk bergabung di sini dan salam buat keluarga di kota Balikpapan.
    In English: Wow... you also like those testament. Thank you for join here and greetings for the family in the Balikpapan city.

    Dear Fajar Indra
    Thank you for the interesting question. Yes, crude oil crisis was "the cause" which make both countries to looking for another source of energy (the effect). The government announcement was "the cause" to races the farmers to move from rice to maize (the effect). Possibly they were interested by the maize price. And the race of the farmers to plant maize was "the cause" of the food/rice crisis (the effect).
    Finally, the race of farmers for plant maize has disrupted the EQUILIBRIUM of food (between maize and rice). The point was on the characteristics of human.

    NOTE: Maybe the case of the "Badan Penyangga dan Pemasaran Cengkeh" (BPPC) in Indonesia could be the lesson.
    Pssst....! when the rice crisis happened and its price has bounced then it was the luck day for the rice farmer.

    Dear Anneberly
    Thank you for the visit. Wish you enjoy to read here.

  13. Hi Ely thank you for your vist... You take care and thank you for the warm welcome to Thea... You have a great day/night and weekend... God Bless you....

  14. sometimes,what the world needs is some little people like you and me to make it a better place

  15. Dear Jk
    Welcome to my blog. Have a great day with your family.

    Dear Eugene
    BUT... it's not enough if only you and me or some people. We need many people hand-in-hand together to make a better place. Greetings for your family.

  16. Dear Love Ely,

    Once again your blog has inspired me. It is reassuring to know that people around the world are concerned about our planet.

    Here in America, we need more emphasis on "cause and effect".

    Until people EVERYWHERE learn that greed and hurting others will eventually "bite back", we will continue to have people who cheat and steal and waste resources.

    The USA is facing financial problems for the entire nation, because of the greed of a few.

    Hopefully, in the future, we can work together for a better world.

    This is one reason I love blogging - I would possibly have never met you, or several other of my readers from around the world - if it were not for the internet and blogging.

    Keep inspiring us to think and become better people.

    Your friend,

Capital Punishment Against Bali Bombers

Last night, when I watching TV, I be attracted with the news about capital punishment against the main performers of the Bali Bombings incident. According to "TV One" (one of the Indonesian TV broadcasting), on October 24, 2008 (means today), the Indonesian attorney general will announce the execution plan for them. Faced that announcement, their family will put forward the re-consideration through their lawyer team next week.

Yes, according to the law, they were guilty and must be punished. But the capital punishment is equivalent with splitting the soul from the body. My big question is "Whether these world must have the capital punishment?" I don't know!

Kartini's Day and Indonesian women

Recently on April 21 the Indonesian nation commemorate Kartini's Day. Actually Kartini's Day is similar to Mother's Day (celebrated in Indonesia on December 22) or International Women's Day. Perhaps to understand Mother's Day you need to understand a person in your life called Mother, and for the International Women's Day and Kartini's Day perhaps you need to understand the person in your life called wife or sister. If you are underestimating women then firstly you need to look at your mother. Am I wrong?

In short: That is all for women. In wider meaning: That is how these special Day to further raise the awareness of Indonesian society or even the world - especially the women themselves - about women rights, their struggle for equality, and their important role in various spheres of life. This is also an occasion for Indonesian women to review how far their struggle get acknowledgment especially from the point of view of Indonesian traditional society who…

Public holidays 2014 in Indonesia

In August 2014, the Indonesian people have enjoyed the 2 days of national holiday, that is: Eid al-Fitr 1434 Hijri on 8-9 August 2014 and the Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia on 17 August 2014. Approximately four months onward, the year 2013 will end. According to the Chinese calendar, the year of snake will be replaced with the year of horse at the time of the Chinese New Year 2565 on 31 January 2014. For those of you who want to plan the agenda in 2014, need to pay attention to the official national holiday and also the so-called "Cuti Bersama" (en: Joint Holiday) which has been declared by the three ministers on August 21, 2013 in Jakarta, as follows:
National Holidays in 2014 (translated in English in parentheses, appologize if incorrect) :

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:

And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt, below:
If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students.

What a beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.
Note: This work was originally from The Illustrated Guide to a Ph.D. by Matt Might.

Sincerity mathematical formula.

I am classify science into two: exact and non-exact science. I am sure you have known mathematical formulas to calculate area, volume, profit and loss in business, etc. This field is known as exact science which requires logical thinking. Beyond exact science such as philosophy, theology, social, politic, in my opinion there is no exact formula. Am I correct?

Well, what if we make a mathematical formula to calculate the level of sincerity. Can it be? Let's try it. For this one I made the following illustration.

I am aware that the hypothesis above has not yet been scientifically tested, therefore I allow the researchers to test it. For readers of this blog, please understand and prove it yourself from your own viewpoint. Perhaps you are imagining the formula above is a form of bill to calculate the expected result of your good deeds with God. Ohh... that is up to you because I am not forcing you to do that.
