Starting My Engine

Tomorrow’s the big day……the start of the spring semester. Books bought, parking paid, pencils sharpened, and as much preparatory studying under my belt as my wife and friends would countenance. Truth is, I’ve been ready for tomorrow for a month of yesterdays. Walking the campus yesterday, it was good to see former classmates, former professors, and a few future professors also readying for the journey.

Ready, set Go!!!!!!!

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
