freedom

‚ÄčLet’s imagine you were going through a rough time in life (could be a loss of a loved one, a failed relationship, a missed job opportunity). It’s been quite sometime now, nothing seems to be working.. 

You’re frustrated.. depressed.. you think people are not the same anymore.. You have a different perspective for every little thing in life.. You get hurt by a common argument.. The world is you’r enemy..


Now let’s say it was all a dream.. Life is still where you left it.. (it’s not completely true but let’s assume it is for now). Even though you were dreaming but your consciousness got updated somehow (entanglement might be but let’s not make assumptions here). With this new experience now your reflexes are slow as are your words. Many things that interested you before now seems senseless.. Now you’re not part of the game instead you are an observer. You don’t judge things or people they appear to be correct in their domains. You analyze the process and notes what went and why. There is no wrong or right. There is no winner, no loser.. Everything is a chance, a chance where you choose to be part of that observed reality. Now you don’t pursue the visible. Your imagination is unbounded. You are free. 

swapping cmd/super and ctrl keys on linux

This post is for people switching from mac to linux. The most frustrating part of the transition which i face was getting accustomed to keyboard shortcuts. In mac world most things are cmd + X but with linux/windows it’s ctrl + X. So just swapping super/cmd with ctrl seems to be the easiest way to make things better. Here are steps to do the same

  1. fire up terminal and modify the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc using your favorite editor
    sudo xed /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
  2. file looks something like this swapkeys
  3. notice the lines key <LCTL> and key <LWIN> modify them to looks as in image above do the same for RCTL and RWIN.
  4. logout and you’re done.
