The Grand Budapest Hotel : Pixel Art

Pixel Art of The Grand Budapest Hotel


The Grand Budapest Hotel is a great movie from Wes Anderson.

Knowledge is Transferable, but not the Wisdom

We all have certain notions about knowledge and wisdom. We feel we have understood them, through text books and holy books. But are we sure?

Knowledge is like energy which can flow between two beings, similar to how energy flows between objects. This transfer of energy changes the state of an object, just like knowledge changes the state of mind. But the key driver of this change in state is not the amount of energy.

The structure of an object is the one that is responsible for the way it reacts to the energy flow. Similarly, attaining the state of wisdom is not the result of the amount of knowledge you have gathered, but is the result of the nature of your being.

I got my first lego set when I was around 5 years old. The year should be around 1990 because I strongly remember the logo of that year's world cup football. The theme of the set was PETROL pump. It consisted of one petrol bus and one petrol station. The moment I opened it I was so sure what to do with it. The set had an instruction set which gave description on how to connect the pieces to build the set. I think it came very naturally to me …
