Subject: [AI] when a lizard can do it


This is a true story that happened in Japan. 
In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open the wall. 

Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet. He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was! first built. 

What happened? 

The lizard has survived in such position for 10 years! In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling. Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years! without moving a single step--since its foot was nailed! 

So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in its mouth. Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 10 years... 

Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 10 long years, without giving up hope on its partner. 

Think, will u do that to your partner? 

Think, will you do it to your Mom, Who brought you after a big struggle of nearly TEN long months? 

Or at least to your Dad, Friends, Co-workers, brothers and Sisters? 

Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can't. 

As information and communication technology advances, our access to information becomes faster and faster. But the distance between human beings . . . is it getting closer as well? As for now, I don't think soâ?¦

....Please never abandon your loved ones. 


With warm regards
Yours sincerely
