Coherence

I’ve been learning to swim. It’s a rare strange pleasure to learn at 37 something most people seem to learn by 7. It gives you back those feelings of being a kid – but with the fear removed, in my case.

I’ve noticed something. That before you’ve learned, it seems like nothing you do with your body seems to have any impact in the water; no propulsion.

But once you’ve learned, it’s completely the opposite. The slightest motion propels you through the water. It’s a complete inversion. The sudden leap forward into coherence…

Javascript rapid word input tool

I went off on pretty much a tear earlier investigating the possibility of coming up with some kind of rapid communication board which would allow you to input words, not letters.

I went once or twice around the bend, and found the closest match in an app called DocsPlus which gives you the ability to create customizable word-bars. There’s a 28 day free trial. It’s interesting, but my use case is to be able to rapidly paste in the results of these sentence creation actions into Firefox in a spreadsheet. It was too combersome with switching back and forth between tabs to access other word bars.

So I cooked up some Javascript I’m still tinkering with which looks at the moment like this:

To weirdos with questions

I’ve been 🕵 investigating what it takes to become a licensed private investigator in the province of Quebec. Kind of just for fun, really, as an extension of a burgeoning interest in privacy and data protection.  Apparently there is a 135 hr training requirement, but no one seems to be able to point me to an equivalent training that’s both available in English and online.

Okay, fine. So sue me for living in a French province in a bilingual country and asking for resources in English. I get it, there’s a charter to protect the French language from being overwhelmed in a predominantly English-language culture. But still. We can do both, right? I think that’s the ideal.

Anyway, I’ve been simultaneously querying a variety of agencies for help: from associations, to training providers, to provincial authorities in neighboring Ontario. My hobby is emailing people I don’t know, with some weird questions. So I’m actually pretty used to this now.

Ontario has, by comparison, an only 50 hr training requirement which is significantly less than Quebec. Unclear still if you have to actually *be* a resident of that province to be licensed there.

I don’t know though what your practice would conceivably consist of though. If you’re licensed in one province, but operating in another. Maybe I’m going about all this in the completely wrong direction.  One possible pathway would be to have the operating province recognize the license given in the other. But for what benefit and to what eventual end?

I’m really not an expert on these things. I’m just someone with a lot of questions. 👀 ❓ But here’s the thing you find when you start asking the people or the agencies, or the people who are out there and who *are* the experts: no one necessarily knows the answer. The questions may never have been asked before. A specific pre-built answer may require interpretation and invention.

And few people acting in official capacities are comfortable being publicly wrong. So it’s a natural human response, I’m sure, to just not to want to answer weirdos with questions. At least that’s commonly where I end up on these hare-brained tangents of mine where I end up emailing a dozen different people for help or answers with a specific question or problem.

There exists, a certain, I guess we could call it ‘tenacity of research‘ which one may possess or perhaps develop as a personality trait… such that following through with it in fullness, and learning to harness and direct it, may actively create answers that didn’t exist before through a radical act of questioning. In the course of asking and answering certain questions, you may through patience and persistence become the eventual expert. You might just invoke an unthing into being.

I don’t know what any of this means, though vis-a-vis where we started. Except, if you gotta 🕵, then 🕵. If you look and you find there’s no answer, you make one out of what’s available and what you can dream up.

 

Understanding the Oath

I think I’m addicted to getting certifications. I recently got my Canadian amateur radio Basic Qualification. I also finished an EU GDPR F course online which has no real bearing on anything, but which is interesting nonetheless.

Anyway, now that I’ve racked up enough eligible days as a Permanent Resident in Canada, I’m beginning the application process for citizenship which includes this fun free Discover Canada book they send you in the mail to study for the test.

Because I’m a dork and I like over-studying stupid things, I thought I’d go through it in excrutiating detail…

Section 1: The Oath of Citizenship

Understanding the Oath
In Canada, we profess our loyalty to a person who represents all Canadians and not to a document such as a constitution, a banner such as a flag, or a geopolitical entity such as a country. In our constitutional monarchy, these elements are encompassed by the Sovereign (Queen or King). It is a remarkably simple yet powerful principle: Canada is personified by the Sovereign just as the Sovereign is personified by Canada.

I love that last line: that the “Sovereign is personified by Canada” and that this pretty much near-mystical idea at the root of citizenship is oh, actually, if you think about it “remarkably simple.”

Right, Canada, right.

Look, as someone who has probably subconsciously carried around the dream of “Running Away to Canada” maybe my whole life, I’m willing to buy pretty much whatever at this point if it means I can stick around. Just don’t try to tell me it’s remarkably simple. Permanent Residency, that’s simple. Straightforward. No oaths before Sovereigns.

But like I said, it’s all about the certifications for me right now. Pass the test. Get those papers. Get a stamp. Get a bunch of stamps. Start stamp collecting. Get into rock climbing. Get into paddling. After all, I’m about to become a Canadian, right?
