On Trees

Black Locust, Essex, May 2020


I wonder about the trees,” Robert Frost wrote. Monumental in size, alive but inert, they inhabit a different temporality than ours. Some species’ life spans can be measured in human generations. We wake to find that a tree’s leaves have turned, or register, come spring, its sturdier trunk. But such changes are always perceived after the fact. We’ll never see them unfold, with our own eyes, in human time.

You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star - Friedrich Nietzsche


Ah, Nietzsche. Always so fashionable, always so little understood and even so little read, although the young man I vaguely remember being enjoyed Beyond Good and Evilin which he argues that the good person is not the opposite of the evil person; good and evil, rather, are different expressions of the same nature, which bubble to the surface by complex and nuanced currents of potentiality and choice.

What's Changing? - Artificial Intelligence



Artificial Intelligence (AI) is typically defined as the ability of a machine to perform cognitive functions we associate with human minds, such as perceiving, reasoning, learning, interacting with the environment, problem solving, and even exercising creativity. Examples of technologies that enable AI to solve business problems are robotics and autonomous vehicles, computer vision, language, virtual agents, and machine learning.

  • With office occupancy hovering at 50% of pre-pandemic levels, some companies are redesigning their offices for the hybrid age - spaces where employees can come together and collaborate, but also engage in distraction-free deep work, according to Time. Some new offices are more like a mix between an office and a social club, with cosy couches, conference rooms and rotating pop-up art exhibits.
