Escape Velocity: Cartesian Review

Can you picture an actual map of your personal success? What would you put onto your map?  If you wish to attain Escape Velocity, a great thing to map out would be your responses to the following five challenges. 1. Find and Identify your List of Simple Parts 2. Place your Parts into Proper Sequence […]

Escape Velocity: 14. Escape Velocity – Itself – Part 2 of 2

Sustainable Upward Momentum > Downward Gravitational Pull July 16, 1969 + 15 years – 2 days = My son Nico’s Birthday on July 14, 1984.  You can do the math; my son really did just turn 30.  And he thinks that makes HIM feel old! We’ll come back to Nico. Yes, the image above is […]

Escape Velocity: 14. Escape Velocity – Itself – Part 1 of 2

Once you’ve escaped you’re free.  If you do a Google image search on “Freedom” you find the image below, of a statue by that name, created by Zenos Frudakis. Freedom.  Escape.  Escape Velocity.  Your Dream.  Your Dream Come True.  There’s a flow there. We’ll return and complete our meditation on our core concept soon, but […]

Escape Velocity: 13. Distance

Distance.  From point A to point B there is always Distance, and we can always traverse that Distance with a Line.     I’ve suffered under the ever-challenging instruction of three great masters in my life so far: Freud, Nietzsche and Descartes.  They’ve each run around a decade or so of primary influence.  Euclid is […]

Escape Velocity: 12. Duration

Duration is a number that we use to measure the passing of time.  It is the ultimate example of the question: how much? I think I’ve already shared the fact that my favorite time question of all is: are we there yet?  It’s only a tiny addition of formality to reframe this question: how much […]

Escape Velocity: 11. Speed

Speed is a number, a ratio; the combination of distance traveled and time elapsed. To begin, let’s talk about the sound barrier, which is of course what is being broken above.  Here’s the wiki definition: “The speed of sound is the distance traveled per unit of time by a sound wave propagating through an elastic […]

Escape Velocity: 10. Acceleration

There’s a reason the picture below is scary.  Let’s talk about that. I can’t say for sure for you, but for me, somehow I see that missile and imagine it coming after me.  If I flip perspective though, and picture it as if the pilot in the awesome fighter plane is me, and if the […]

Escape Velocity: The Final Five

Today, let’s get emotional! We’re in the home stretch.  We have just five elements of our analysis to contemplate on our mission to escape.  In the coming days, we’ll take them in the following order, just as we’ve done until now.  Here are our remaining five, and then below, I’ll discuss their emotions in light […]

Escape Velocity: From Generalization to Application – 5 of 4 – CORRECTION!

Whew, I couldn’t have been more wrong, yesterday; please allow me to explain… Newton’s Famous 3rd Law’s Equation No, Einstein did not discover the speed of light.  And no, I have no idea at all why the speed of light is a limit, but according to our man Albert – and I believe virtually all […]

Escape Velocity: From Generalization to Application – 4 of 4

Law III: To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction: or the mutual actions of two bodies upon each other are always equal, and directed to contrary parts. If you’ve ever heard a scientific law stated, this is likely the one.  Every action triggers an equal and opposite reaction. And if you’re a […]
