**α. About me**

An organic self learning algorithm trying to simulate , analyze & understand how things work by constantly trying to work at a high Reynolds number flow of thought, where the characteristic length is the size of the human brain, the velocity being the rate at which I do work, even though the density is as small as the ratio of what is known to what is unknown and the viscosity being as high as the physical constraints in one’s life that cause turbulence in the mind, affecting the laminar streamlines of thought itself !
