Elbaite and Quartz

*The bout was the 154-pound final of the Toyota Marathon in Phitsanulok,
Thailand on Jan. 27. Fiziev pulled off the dodge but could not pull off
the victory* - Quoted from Bleacher Report

**Enter the Matrix**

ive never seen the matrix

Why on earth is matrix multiplication NOT commutative ? – An Intuition

One is commonly asked to prove in college as part of a linear algebra problem set that matrix multiplication is not commutative. i.e If A and B are two matrices then :

But without getting into the Algebra part of it, why should this even be true ? Let’s use linear transformations to get a feel for it.

If A and B are two Linear Transformations namely Rotation and Shear. Then it means that.

Is that true? Well, lets perform these linear operations on a unit square and find out:

**(Rotation)(Shearing)**

**(Shearing)(Rotation)**

You can clearly see that the resultant shape is not the same upon the two transformations.

This means that the order of matrix multiplication matters a lot ! ( or matrix multiplication is not commutative.)

Have a great day!

It’s actually possible that we’re in a Matrix (virtual reality)

Touch

I used to work at the museum as the guy that told people not to touch
the mummies. It was normally easy because most people are respectful or
too stupid to realize that the mummies could be touched, but one old
woman came in every year on the same day and made my job tough. She wore
a shirt that said “#1 Mummy Toucher” and didn’t even look at the other
exhibits, even though we had some cool ones like King Arthur’s round
tablecloth and Kennedy’s novel about the Matrix. This woman
would hop right over the velvet “do not hop over” rope and make a
bee-line for the most touchable mummy. One year I was a step ahead of
her and dressed up as that mummy, so when she went to touch me I grabbed
her hand and said, “Don’t touch the mumm-ME!” and laughed and laughed.
She didn’t think it was very funny though and had a big heart attack and
died on the spot. I didn’t want to get in trouble so I threw her into
one of the empty mummy sarcophagi. I think she’s still there today.
Anyway, obviously I got promoted from that job to tour guide, so if
you’ll follow me, we’ll check out Kennedy’s novel that caused the
Wachowskis to kill him.

Basis Vectors are instructions!

Basis vectors are best thought of in the context of roads.

Imagine you are in a city - X which has only roads that are perpendicular to one another.

You can reach any part of the city but the only constraint is that you
need to move along these perpendicular roads to get there.

Now lets say you go to another city-Y which has a different structure of roads.

In this case as well you can get from one part of the city to any other,
but you have to travel these ‘Sheared cubic’ pathways to get there.

Just like these roads determine how you move about in the city,

Basis Vectors encode information on how you move about on a plane.

What do I mean by that ?

**The basis vector of City-X is given as:**

This to be read as - “ If you would like to move in City-X you can only do so by taking 1 step in the x-direction or 1 step in the y-direction ”

**The basis vector of City-Y is given as:**

This to be read as - “ If you would like to move in City-Y you can only do so by taking 1 step in the x-direction or 1 step along the diagonal OB ”

By having the knowledge about the Basis Vectors of any city, you can travel to any destination by merely scaling these basis vectors.

As an example, lets say need to get to the point (3,2), then in City-X, you would take 2 steps in the x-direction and 3 steps in the y-direction

And similarly in City-Y, you would take 1 step along the x -direction and 2 steps along the diagonal OB.

Destination Arrived :D

You are the One, Neo. You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.
