Notes from underground - During my various trips to the unconscious, I found out that most of my thoughts are mere descriptions of bargaining outcomes between my internal powers and the external world, they are devoid of any ultimate intrinsic reason. In fact, my thoughts never precede my actions but solely justify them. Through the years, It became clear to me that, in order to improve my thoughts, I had to improve these bargaining outcomes. In this respect, I travel to the depths, to the underground world where desires are repressed, ideas are persecuted, fears are tyrants, reality is avoided and survival is KING! Despite their extreme peril, I still find such trips quite fascinating human experience, they are almost self-sacrificial, very perilous and extremely scary. The depths are very turbulent, violent, devoid of order and raging with uncontrollable drives and repressed energies. The blindly brave will is not satisfied by determining the future but also stretches its hand towards the past. It wants to liberate itself. It is willing to risk survival because it wants to live!

Man complains all the time about social moral norms. He continuously asserts that they restrict his freedom of action. However, if you look close enough, you will know that man will never let them down. These norms play a crucial role in his stability. He can easily earn sympathy, receive confirmation and get help by conforming to the expectations of others.

What is creativity? It is a deep malaise beautifully sublimated. We are warned about serving two masters, but some people still try it. They are simultaneously in love with life and their integrity. They get consequently stuck between two contradicting principals: The preservation of self calls for harmony, unity and stability and the evolution of life calls for multiplicity, change and growth. As any will is ultimately dictatorial, life pressures all the living to submit to its laws.

I have been reading lately about the stability of dynamic systems and I found the results at first very strange. It says that an equilibrium of a system is stable if and only if all of its corresponding eigenvalues have negative real parts. The word eigenvalue etymologically comes from the German 'Eigenwert' and means intrinsic value. I was wondering, how could a person be stable if all its intrinsic values are negative? I always thought that stability was related to positive appreciation about one's own worth i.e. own eigenvalue! After a while, I discovered that I was shortsighted and that the mathematical statement were very deep for my superficial understanding.

My article in Tunisia Live is a first personal attempt to diagnose the Tunisian culture. I don't pretend to even scratch the surface of a culture that spans more than 3000 years, but I tried to build on my experience in Western cultures in order put forward some limitations of the culture that, in my opinion, hinder the development of Tunisia towards an innovative and prosperous society. The Tunisian Revolution was a golden opportunity for us, Tunisians, to reflect on our society and ask ourselves: Are we doing everything we can to be an innovative society? Are we properly using our human resources to drive social and economic prosperity? Unfortunately the answer to these questions is no! Our culture still suffers from flaws that substantially impede our progress and squander valuable human resources. Read the article in Tunisia Live.

Game theory has been applied to a very wide variety of fields e.g. Economics, Politics, International relations, Biology... but unfortunately not to the most important and salient game ever, the game between man and woman... the game of love. This small article attempts to give a systematic analysis of the game of love.

In Stockholm, through a joint initiative from Montasser Ghachem and Mark Bernard, the scientific journal "Craponometrica" was founded. The journal is novel in so many aspects such as being the first journal with an extremely wide scope within Economics and with no quality strandards. The slogan of journal "We proudly publish anything" is not only there to attract brilliant minds, it is actually applied in the "selection" process of papers. Read the official description of Craponometrica:

We all know that all roads lead to Rome, I have verified that there exists at least one road passing through Stockholm, e.g. the one in front of my apartment ... This road should necessarily lead to Rome ... That said there is a road between Stockholm and Rome ....

Enoncé: Au milieu de toutes mes pensées complexes, il existe une pensée où je ne pense qu'a toi.

Théorèmes et axiomes: Le lemme de Zorn (Hausdorff Maximality Theorem) affirme que si un ensemble ordonné tel que toute chaîne (sous-ensemble totalement ordonné) possède un majorant, alors il possède un élément maximal. Toute pensée de moi vers toi est condensée en sentiments donc profonde et surtout compacte.
