The Process (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!

Everybody, young and old,
eventually, embraces the darkness,
where the void would greet,
with an eternity which would last,
to when nobody would know,
till now nobody has ever awoken,
from a forever last eternity,
to tell the tale of the forgottens.

Why bother with the fear of the darkness,
when one could enjoy the light to the fullest,
while one can breath in the delight of everything,
so one can feel the wakefulness of every fiber,
this is when one knows it doesn’t matter,
when such a day one has to be greeted by a void,
where light would go out forever,
because one has already been shone upon by light.

Perhaps, The Real Universes Are Also No Man’s Sky

This June, No Man’s Sky will be released on the 21st of the month.  This is one of those games that I can’t wait to get my game on.  The game is about an almost infinite galaxies and planets that you can travel to and explore.  From what I’d heard the travel between planets and galaxies is seamless.  An open world where wonders and monsters await, and each trip can be randomly dangerous.  If not prepare ahead, your next trip in No Man’s Sky may be a trip to hell.

Enough about the game, because I want to focus on something else entirely in this blog post.  I mentioned No Man’s Sky, because the game is special and unique since it would almost indefinitely generate new instances of parts of the universe that you travel through in your spaceship.  This means game assets and whatnot are going to be randomly created all the time through an algorithm.  This makes me wonder perhaps our real universe is also infinite.

When we escaped the planet earth, we suddenly realized the surmise of round earth is true.  We see galaxies, but we can’t get there.  We can’t really see the edge of the universe, because a simplest, smallest distance between earth and another planet is already too huge.  Just imagine an ant craws across a hill, and this ant must have thought that the hill is a galaxy.  How would the ant know that there is a universe in which humans are aim to travel across, right?

Imagine the real universe is also being instantly generated indefinitely, thus us humans would probably never be able to see the real edge of the universe.  Because, the edge of the universe would also be expanded farther and farther with no end in sight.  What if there are multiple universes that would never allow one realm to travel to another, but these realms are so different and have infinite generated instances?  Imagine the laws of physics would be so different from one realm to another.

I think as human civilization gets bolder with space, one day we may do No Man’s Sky for real.  Right now I can’t wait to play No Man’s Sky on PC, but our human civilization can’t wait to escape this space region.  I think nuclear power and the likes are progress, but only if us humans can be civilized.  Such technologies can catapult us humans out of this space region and go interstellar.  Nonetheless, we may go extinct if we can’t be civilized among ourselves.

360 Degree (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • An outlandish idea perhaps,
  • but this one had planted a seed inside me,
  • as if nature and life itself a 360 degree map,
  • going in a circle until a realization would allow us be.
  • 360 degree of realization,
  • persuaded me 360 degree is the life force,
  • in which this force is the creation,
  • lying dormant, waiting for us humans to spring forth.
  • As busied as a bee we were,
  • trying to figuring out the inner working of a clock,
  • tick tock, a clock was busied as we were,
  • for an eternity, spinning itself in 360 degree o’clock.
  • With a 360 degree clock in time,
  • we were fully prepared to spring forward,
  • technologically, we raced ahead the sand of time,
  • determining to meet the creator as we were going forward.
  • Too busied as a bee as always,
  • overlooking the grander picture,
  • successfully bringing about the grander machines as always,
  • hadn’t gotten a clue that we were inside 360 degree picture.
  • Tick tock, until time would stop,
  • perhaps then we would guess a life force’s inner working,
  • tick tock, until time would stop,
  • perhaps then, in 360 degree, our turn to shape things.

Installing KDE Desktop Environment On Ubuntu 12.10

Sweet, the "previews" feature just a...

Ubuntu released its latest iteration couple days ago if I’m not mistaken, and it’s known as Ubuntu 12.10.  Ubuntu 12.10 is nice and all, but I’ve noticed that its default desktop graphical user interface which is Unity is super sluggish for older hardware and virtual machine.  With that being said, if you have a newer computer hardware and better graphic card, Unity on Ubuntu 12.10 should be very responsive, and you won’t have a bad experience at all.  Anyhow, since I’m going to use Ubuntu 12.10 in a virtual environment for some time to come, this is why I had installed another desktop graphical user interface which is known as KDE for Ubuntu 12.10.  With KDE desktop graphical user interface, things should be zippier on Ubuntu 12.10 when Ubuntu runs on a virtual machine.  Anyhow, I have made a video on showing whoever wants to know how to install KDE desktop graphical user interface on Ubuntu 12.10, and you can check this video out right after the break.  Enjoy!!!

Showing Off Diablo 3 Level 60 Monk

I’m showing off my lv 60 monk for Diablo 3 in the video right after the break.  In case you want to know, he had completed the Hell difficulty level and is now taking on the Inferno difficulty level.  He also has 4 legendary items on him.  Right after I had made the video for the monk, I purchased another legendary weapon in Diablo 3 auction house using in-game gold, and this time I got the right type of weapon which would be more fitting for monk than the legendary weapon I had him equipped in the video.  Want to know how I got those legendary items in Diablo 3?  Check the video out right after the break and you would be amazed.  Enjoy!!!
