Path - Czech Countryside (Spring 2002)


"You'll understand when you're older."

This is a phrase commonly used by parents to placate their inquisitive offspring. I'm not sure if mine ever used it, but I've heard it plenty of other places. Well, I'm older now, although I could hardly call myself old, and I understand. I understand that there are many things nobody ever grows old enough to understand. I also understand that there are many people who have grown old enough to think they understand. Perhaps I am one of them. Chew on that.

Anyway, we all have our paths to walk, and those paths lead us past different things and may have any number of forks, even if the destination is the same. And that is the point, isn't it? Well, no, it's not *the* point, but it is one of them.

I could think of a few things you don't understand. :) Advanced Calculus and Differential Equations to start. MUHA YOU WANT MORE?!Q

Advanced Calculus and Differential Equations are hardly essential knowledge for understanding life.

Perhaps the lack of a strong base in Advanced Calculus and Differential Equations lends one to be less prepared to understand life. Maybe you will understand when you are older. There, now one of yor parents has told you that.

i'd say that just about everything you need to know about life is depicted in your photograph.

You are to be commended on your accumulation of nonessential knowledge.

Differential Equations can hardly be called non-essential to understanding life. They are used quite frequently to describe biological trends and many other aspects of life. Perhaps if you knew a little about them, you wouldn't be so hasty as to say they are non-essential.

What I am referring to as essential is something that a tribal warrior or some such individual confronting nature and the elements on a day-to-day basis would need in his daily life. We do not need differential equations to function, although I don't dispute that they are useful.

So how many tribal warriors are around nowadays?
