Aphorism ‘du jour’
“Life happens in parallel but is experienced serially”
People and their constructs (politicians, markets, organisations, etc) can only concentrate on, react to, and cope with one thing at a time. Sadly, the planet, and physics in general, is oblivious of this constraint, which may explain much of the misery attendant on the human condition. The phrasing I have chosen is a reflective of my exposure to the world of computing. I would appreciate a more general formulation, if anyone is troubled by my draft and can suggest one.
Thanks for visiting.
