Ridiculous but painful reality in many of life’s situations such as when one is made to believe the “four” that the “machine” or “rule” is telling him to be the exact right number when it is clear as crystal to be “eight” at close range, before his very naked eyes. This happens during election time and in court cases wherein the losing candidates “win” and the innocent is punished while the guilty is relieved.
Computers generate figures which are only as “accurate” as the qualified data encoded and as credibly reliable as the application system that was put in place by certain “technical” people. Machines can be humanly influenced every which way they can be externally and extensively manipulated at the whim of their masters. Thus computers can only be as trustworthy and effective as the integrity of those who operate or have access to them.
Above all, reason and eyewitness.
Whatever numbers or statistics the CompuBox has generated to tell us who won in the recent fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez last November 12, it doesn’t make sense if the numbers don’t agree with correct “applied mathematics” wherein the four or five senses are well in control and in superintendence, analyzing computer reports which don’t have brain.
How foolish indeed to sing “Silent night” when the accompanying music is “O Holy Night.”
It is interesting that common sense is so uncommon to “experts” and “well-educated.” And it is foreboding that they almost always seem to miss the mark. When scores and statistics would tell otherwise what eyes could see in full view and what common sense dictates, only the disillusioned, mentally incapacitated or blind-folded are inclined to be persuaded by what others are insisting out of bias and because of the “machine.”
I am for a Pacquiao win. But sorry for myself, Marquez won!
