Phd, academia, "failed academia" problem...

In answer to a friends sleepless nights of not continuing research work... she posted somebodies 'Failed Academia' text blog.

I think, there are hidden issues behind this problem

One, no one needs to do a phd, it does not define the persons capacity.
Two, if for job purpose, if everything points to the necessity of such a qualification, do it.  But, you must know, you are going to do more of the same down the road.  If people dont pay you for this work, would you still do it?

Details


Phd is just the beginning. Just like going to art school or cooking school or fashion design school. Actually, maybe - if you cant get into the Academia pool (due to whatever reasons), then do something else for money and do research on your own? I really dont understand the problem - you like to do something, do you get paid for it? Yes, or no. If Yes, no problem. If yes, but not enough, you feel not worth all the hassle then, do it moderately as much as you could stand. Then for the living expenses, do a job that is not related to your research work, one that doesnt take mental energy so much. So your brain could relax from your passion (doing research). A famous professor once said during a public talk that out of 100 thesis, there might be 3 thats interesting to read. Not so many gd academics. But I do think a lot of basic research work needs to be done, and could be interesting too. Anyway, its always good to learn something that could be useful for others. Research for yourself, and do something useful for others. There is no such thing as "failed academic", either you are academic oriented or you are not. If you are not, why bother with getting a job in Academia? If you are, even if you dont have a job, you know you are from the things you enjoy doing. The only failure is, you really like it, but you think you didnt get that job, so it hurts you that you are doing some lower ranking job at the same place. Know yourself what you really like to do. Imagine, if you were financially comfortable would you feel "failed" that you didnt get that position - no, at least, I wouldnt, I would feel that I didnt get into that particular game, but there are many other interesting games to play. True research is like a game. The other advice i remember from another great professor , he said, think very carefully why you want to do phd, it takes 5 yrs to do a phd, if you dont need to, dont do it. 5 years is a long time. What is "need' to or "not need to" - each person has their own definition.

impact of coronavirus


The world, internet, and what could I do?

If you are a v gd mouth piece, you speak
If you are a v gd doc, you treat
If you are a magicien in special mystic healing, you come out and show your stuff now
Elmo from Sesame street is here for refugee children, and he works hard and we see babies smiling

Speaker
Chen Qiushi was the winner of national public speaker contest in China on a popular tv show - his speech is shiny, humorous and intelligent. So wasteful ... I watched a recent documentary by Werner Herzog on Chernoby, a docu on Gorbachev. I start to understand more about how problem solving in exceptional contexts are carried out. Only watched half, will continue today. Recommended for all. What are the true values of documentaries? For me, sometimes it is to see how other people do things and find what we are doing that could be done otherwise. More choices and possibilities because "nothing new in, nothing new out" and "garbage in garbage out". In todays age, where information is so easily available if you bothered to take some time to look for data and we are so privileged to have access which was not the case pre-internet days. On the other hand that is why we have all these hoax and fake news too. In the end its a question of time, it takes time to sort out - what have you got in your bag? And what to do about it? What to do if you have insufficient data? And a question of time frame - I see these videos pitch - often used by students in their video projects because it looks smashingly beautiful. A beaker of clear water, swirl some black-blue ink into it, and film the cloudy threads of color merging into the liquid. Looks kind of poetic, uncontrolable, airy, pretty - and then, voice off - something philosophical borrowed from somewhere. Usually about life etc. These days, no documentary, nevermind about fiction films, all pale against real life happening around us - and me, just like everyone else watching in the comfort of our homes.
