A game: sinking ships

I just rememebered a game of sinking war ships we sometimes played when I was a kid, mainly against my mom, and it maybe increased problem solving skills later, but we did not play it so often.

Mostly there are just two players. Each player has a grid boxed ordinary writing or counting paper and a pen. They choose a square of a suitable size, for example 8 times 8 boxes, and a nice number of war ships fitting well to it, for example one row of five boxes, two ships of four, three ships of three boxes in a row, four ships of two and five ships of one box.  They also number the boxes by marking numbers from 1 to 8 to the side  and letters from A to H to the top so that each box is easy to refer to.
Then they each secretly, without showing to the opponent, draw the ship outlines to their water area. No twio ships may be side by side but corners touching is ok.
Then they try to guess where the ships of the other player are and hit them to sink the ship under the water. They each in turn mention a box, for example B3, and the other one checks if there is a ship there in her/his paper, and so she/he answers "It hit but did not yet sink." or "Flew past." if there is no ship there, or "It hit and it sank." if there was a ship and it's all places had been hit. So they need another box where to mark their guesses theyt have already made: just cross the box in quaéstion and make some mark of whether there was a ship there. Similarly you can on your own ships' pool make markings of the guesses the other onbe has made.

Somehow I feel that this is good for making guesses about possible solutions and for building upon the werll working ones.

My mom liked mathematics

My mom was always fond of mathematics. My parents called mathematics the queen of sciences.  My mom once said that seh had had in school math number 11 on scale from 4 to 10, and that later the teachers had rised it to 14. I did not believe it then, but could it have explained why my parents forced me to study math in university, even though I never had even glimpse of any new idea, of any work result in math. My mom was full of new ideas for new math results. She seemed to keep associations in daily life as sources for new ideas in math.
I have never liked math. I am much more inclined to objective thinking like philosophy and to practical things to do, arts, nature, religions, caring the world to a good state. I did not feel that math studies after schoolwould have had any use for anything. I have written my view about my mom's math talents in my Finnish blog http://pikakoulu.blogspot.fi

Kirjoituksiani

Olen kirjoittanut muutamia kirjoituksia, joilla on kai maailmassa erityisesti väliä:
* Ajattelukurssi http://pikakoulu.blogspot.fi/2011/11/ajattelukurssi.html : arkijärkisen objektiivisen ajattelun kurssi, lyhyt, helppo ja selkeä, opettaa kunnollisen ajattelukyvyn, jos katseleminen ja käytännön tekemiset kuten käsityöt ilman mielikuvitusta ja puutarhanhoito sujuvat taitotason puolesta ok, eli koulutetun tyyppinen objektiivinen ajattelu, joka on helppo pitää mukana myös muissa taidoissa ja elämässä laajemmin, mm kokonaiskuvallinen: rakenteet oikein hahmottava maisemakatse, mistä ajattelukurssi neuvoo tarkemmin, että miten. Tällä ajattelutyypillä mm määritelmäiä on helppo tehdä myös ei-niin-konkreettisissa asioissa: hahmottaa ne maisemakuvana ja määrittelee alueen kuin antaisi rakennusohjeita tuossa maisemassa. Tämän pitäisi olla ajattelun perusmuoto, vailla maneereja ja mielivaltaisuuksia.
* Englanninkielinen kirjoitelma tulevaisuuden tietokoneista: Tietokoneille tunteet (tavoitteellinen toiminta rinnasteusena tunteiden vaikutukselle), järki (luonnontieteet ja niiden mittausmenetelmät käyttävät pitkälti matematikkaa ja karttoja) ja moraali (kannattavuussyyt mekaanisella kielellä) objektiivisesti: http://feelingcomputers.blogspot.fi/2011/08/far-future-with-computers-what-will.html
* Lisäksi olen kirjoittanut siitä, miten kannattavuusperustelut (rakenteen kuvaus) tukevat terveitä elämäntapoja ja järkiperusteista moraalia, mikä teoreettisena ideaalina, kuten tietokoneille ohjelmoitavissa olevassa maailmankuvassa on mielekästä, tarkoittaisi terveen luonnontilaisen maailman rakennetun tuella muodostamaa alkuparatiisia muistuttavaa tulevaisuudenparatiisia http://2013paradise.blogspot.fi/2017/08/basics-of-my-paradise-theory.html , mikä tietenkin onnistuessaan olisi maailmanlaajuinen ja erityisen pitkäkestoinen: syklisen aikakäsityksen mahdollistava.
* Tuon edellisen osana on kannattavuusanalyysejä terveistä elämäntavoista, tunteista ja työtehosta, mikä mahdollistaisi tunteidenmukaista vapaa-aikaa palkasta tinkimättä, työtehon kasvattamisen myötä, urakkapalkatussa työssä siis http://workandfreetime.blogspot.fi
* Haaveammattiin-blogi: näin opita lahjat ja taidot haaveammattiisi ja vaihdat sosiaalista lokeroa haavealoillesi http://nopeaoppisuus.blogspot.fi
* (Erillinen mutta nyt jo isoksi paisunut projekti kirjata ylös Tervola-nimen myötä tulleita vaikutelmia siitä, miten tauteja ja vaivoja voisi ehkä parantaa: http://parantamisesta.blogspot.fi )
* Lisäksi blogeja aiheista, joista olen harrastunut: taiteet, luonto, liikunta, terveet elämäntavat, vuodenajat, tunteet ja taito, hengellisyydestäkin harrastunut / itämaisesta filosofiasta

How to choose what to write to the internet

From my blog http://picturesfrommyhome.blogspot.fi/2018/02/other-links-to-my-texts.html

"14.2.2018   Writing to the internet isn't just figuring out something and then writing it down, as if robbing your ideas from you or trying to fake that all is interesting to others. Instead it sis like coming to think many different thoughts, learning new things, having teaching skills and every now and then coming across something that has rpoduct like good qualities: Hey this is needed by many who are interested in these subjects, and I have the teachings skills for it too, so what about if I would make a blog post about it. And then if the flow of doing carries you too far, coming to think: Hey these are not exactly what is needed but those aree what people need, I will do those and drop these personal ones away."

I cannot widen my texts to new audiences

I have thought of the things thta I write of on a general level, so they apply to all cases I can think of. If they do not apply to some person or group, I am not able to widen them to that group too.
My texts suppose as a compulsory starting level the Finnish school education as it was in the '80's when I went to school. ('78 to '90) I do not have kids of my own, so I am not able to teach the starting leveö of respecting objective thinking, fact communication, basic responsibility and the like.

My cultural environment

I was bprn 1971 and lived my childhood and as teenager and young adult inthe capital district of Finland, which is culturally very academical and work oriented, also inclined toward government and grass-root democracy. I wrote my books there and made most of my videos.
In the summer 2009 I moved to Savonlinna in southern Savo in eastern Finland, which isculturally very different, oriented toward opera, art, summer cottage life, elderly, handiworks,religion, practicaöprofessions, travel and trade plus offering a holiday for the travelleras. First these we just possible areas of life for me but I looked at them from my old culture,maybe for three or four years so. Then during the next four years I have looked things increasingly from the points of view of this new local culture. And right now I came to think that maybe for half a year, since the summer 2017 I have looked at things so much fromthe view of Savonlinna, that my texts already should be classified as products of ways of living in Savonlinna. it's culture and strenghts & weaknesses.
