Heat Wave

I’m sitting in my lounge at home, drafting this blog entry. The air conditioner is on, which is unusual for me, as I much prefer natural ventilation though it my be warmer than dos people would like. 

It occurred to me now that we go thru life facing many conditions that are “natural”. Not just the elements of nature, but events and people who we find disagreeable in some way. Having a strategy t cope with recurring situations helps. Once we classify them, we can match each new unpleasant encounter with our categories list. If it fits one of the categories, then we can go on auto pilot in the way we handle them.

Autopilot only works if we have settings for each variable that is relevant. The variable for heat is temperature. So, if the temperature goes to a certain level and beyond, the air conditioner gets turned on. It also means we need to know what the level of discomfort is that we are willing to put up with temporarily. Otherwise the thermostat will keep kicking in and out and the body will wear out much faster.  And you will be seen to be too fickle.

About Ed Simon

This is my user name as Editor of this blog. Some site visitors may already be acquainted with the different areas of my interest. I am uncertain how I should classify myself. I have lived studied and worked in Malaysia and in the UK for long periods. I have also travelled to many other countries for both work, pleasure, and just "wandering". I leave the postings to tell about my areas of work and interest, so as not to bore you with a lengthy (and probably embellished :-) recount of my triumphs and tribulations.
