    Ting Too Mut

    The famous philosophy of Somchai Nietzsche may be worth deeper consideration.

    Do you spend a disproportionate amount of time thinking about shit?

    Problems crop up along the course of one's life and you have to deal with them.

    But I have come to realise that if the amount of time you spend in Machiavellian machinations trying to work out the optimum solution to a problem is not in proportion to the problem itself then the brain power and brain time you expend on this activity starts to become a significant proportion of the problem itself.

    I am currently trying to practice a Zen-like approach of 'No-Mind' when faced with problems. i.e. I will actively suppress concious thought about the problem.

    Maybe in spending so long analysing my own thought processes about dealing with problems in this OP I am just exhibiting more of the excessive pointless pre-occupation I am trying to avoid so I will end this post now.

    Thank you for listening.

    p.s. I was going to stick this in Religion, Philosophy and Metaphysyics but that sub-forum seems to have gone. Have we lost all the threads? That was a good sub-forum.

    I thought quite far last night and came up with an idea for a new religion.

    This morning though, after the drugs have worn off I can't remember much about it.

    It was going to solve all the worlds problems too.

    every time I start to have a rant to my boss about something onsite which I consider as illogical/absurd but is outside of my scope

    he holds out both his hands palms upward and distant from each other.

    and pronounces

    area of influence ---- area of concern

    which means - there is fcuk all you can do about it , so stop worrying

    There is nothing that I do these days that does not require brain destroying thought.

    I've been working on something for over 7 months now, written up at least 4 patent application drafts which have been scrapped, empowered the assistance of electrical and communication experts and now have ended back at stage 1 with my original concept.

    But how to describe and patent something that isn't tangible? Not something you can hold in your hand.

    There ya go Looper. Your thought provoking task for today. Answer that and I will buy you a beer.

    Take a few lessons on that from Dave, he's seems to occupy a very large space in the "not thinking today," category.

    As for the loss of the religious, metaphysical and other worldly scripts, perhaps God removed them?

    Those that can, do.
    Those that can't, think.
    Some of those that think they can, can't.
    Some of those that think they think, don't.

    Get an intravenous drip and a nurse - allow yourself time to think.

    I don't like to spend too much time thinking about problems, I'm all about the solution and cracking on with it.

    I confront the problem head on in a rational way and sort it one way or the other.

    Worrying about stuff is pointless and unproductive, I ain't got enough time left on this Earth to get to tied up with problems.

    I have the utmost respect for money as if you have it you can bin a lot of ones problems and just start again.

    Ive got a few health problems at the moment and because I have Top private health cover I can get in and get them sorted. If I had no insurance I'd be stuck in the public health system.

    That would be a big problem.

    ^Interesting notion, but surely the purpose of patenting is to allow the idea to provide the originator with profit for a protected time period. How can something which is not tangible provide tangible profit?

    Understood mate but what we know we can achieve has never been done before and there are not prior art citations to compare our technology with. Very difficult to write the patent application abstract.

    The device that is the tangible part of the invention creates the intangible result that I am sure people will want to use almost on a daily bases.

    Without the device the marketable end result is not possible.

    Pretty difficult to patent I would guess. The thing you are trying to patent is the ability for the device to generate the physical sensation?

    So the device does not have enough intrinsic uniqueness to be easily patentable but its application in a specific way has a beneficial result?

    Could be in 'interesting discovery' rather than 'patentable invention' territory?

    so youve invented a new sex toy then.

    most of the patents related to haptic technology, past present and future have already been filed by apple etc.

    you'll need to be quick

    Maybe. Let us see what the patent examiner has to say!

    Your closer to what I am trying to achieve then what you realize.
