@Nee...@LC - Yes I want to, havent started on this!!<br />@Neeraj - Its an n-dimensional vector!! Euclides had thought about 3 orthogonal axes, I am talking about n orthogonal axes. The magnitude needs to be figured out, but yes, the analogy could be a framework to recast the society :)Prasadhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13304802849157620563noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9114798038047055586.post-89364911649018319102009-05-23T12:15:06.001+05:302009-05-23T12:15:06.001+05:30A vector is represented by a line segment originat...A vector is represented by a line segment originating from point A to point B. I believe an individual's existence is a complex function of various parameters, so how can it be represented by a vector. Euclidean vector is too simplistic to evaluate the magnitude and direction between society and the individual's existence or am I missing something here. Nevertheless a fantastic analogy.Terms of Meandermenthttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16179766862785925261noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9114798038047055586.post-42335378274168747172009-05-23T11:19:32.680+05:302009-05-23T11:19:32.680+05:30Interesting analogy, you must read Zen and the art...Interesting analogy, you must read Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance, if you haven't already.LightNInG Crasheshttp://crazybum.rediffblogs.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9114798038047055586.post-67202296820230425192009-05-23T09:53:35.730+05:302009-05-23T09:53:35.730+05:30Aaah.. you do have a point there.

But yes, there has to be something about the magnitude of these vectors.Prasadhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13304802849157620563noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9114798038047055586.post-61426647125849040632009-05-22T19:38:47.724+05:302009-05-22T19:38:47.724+05:30No it will still be weighted average.

Every individualâ€™s mass will not be 1, it will be a total of their charisma, vision, their influence on people around them.<br /><br />Itâ€™s not democracy.Amithttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00562550779990477678noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9114798038047055586.post-12014354888620037822009-05-22T17:52:29.511+05:302009-05-22T17:52:29.511+05:30Yes!

So, for an individual to shift the society, it would be very difficult. The population brings in the weight, get it?Prasadhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13304802849157620563noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9114798038047055586.post-55569984160941331382009-05-22T17:23:38.589+05:302009-05-22T17:23:38.589+05:30Interesting.
