Postdated development: Space Time travel to 14 Jan 2018 (Chinese Almanac Year of the Dog starts in the Chinese New Year 16 Feb 2018)
As a chronicler and in the process of finishing my 1st writing book project at the start of 2018 with a strong theme on Human Consciousness and the title,"From Abacus to the Cloud", I'm amazed to record down little miracles in my life or associations that I see as miracles. This introduces the "Space Time Travel" theme to my book, more and more additions as I go deeper into my own Consciousness to complete the book. Allow me to elaborate.
On 14 Jan 2018 yesterday, I brought Ern to meet our Uncle Tony at the KL Marriott hotel who is in one of his regular yearly visits to Malaysia:
I came to this post remembering that I had a photo of Ray and I on top of Gunung Datuk with the photo shot seen above. But this was not Gunung Nuang so I tried to find photos of a trip that my memory somehow remembered the name and possibly was the 2nd hike my son and I did so I tried to find a blog post of that hike but couldn't. Ah if I understood My Consciousness well enough I know I can find it and I did. It involved Space Time analysis. For Space, where did I store those photos? I first checked my blogs to remember a photo of being at the peak of the hill we climbed would be here to find this post and the name of Gunung Datuk was confirmed. I could find this post as the word 'peak' was the title which helped me remember that the hilltop photo would be here. I had only found this space where the Gunung Datuk hike photo of the peak was kept here on this post as well as the link to it found above on this blog post.
Where were the photos of the other hill we climbed as I wanted to confirm we did climb it, this being a test of my efficiency of my database of photos and events of my life, being part of my consciousness support system enabled by computing technology to augment my mind with quick search or verification of information. In order to search for the space, I had to use the time dimension to search as I recall the 2nd trip was after the Gunung Datuk trip and 2 of my sons were there as I recalled. The memory was more distinct as Ray fell sick on this trip and I had to take him home to recover and letting my older son Han to continue the journey and return to pick him up the next day.
Searching any post in blogger using time is easy as all blogs have a time stamp and are listed in chronological order. I did run through them but realized I did not create a blogpost for the 2nd trip. The next alternative would be to scan for the primary folder where all photos are stored when transferred from the SD card of the digital camera to the harddisk storage space. I have these folders with pics that date back from the year 2005 to the current year of 2018 to search from. Knowing the hike was in the year 2012 and had to be before the time when Han went off for his mission in June 2012, my search scope was narrowed down between April 2012 to June 2010 as June is when Han had to start his mission as per my writing below his mission call photo below. With patience and confidence, I soon found the folder dated 30 May 2012 and here are some pics from it of the Gunung Nuang hike :
"Dear Elder Chong:
