Opportunity Cost

Today my econ brain is more active than usual. As such, I see much clearer the results of people’s choices, including my own, and the opportunity costs it took to get those results.

Knowing about the results, I wonder if people are rational? Economics assume people are rational for the purpose of providing empirical results, given everyone has the same amount of information and knowledge to process problems.

This assumption is far from reality. We live in a very unfair world; life isn’t fair. Some people are born more gifted, some people have less resources, while others are born with closer knit community. Everyone has different backgrounds and perception of the world around them. 

One thing remain constant: everyone still have opportunity costs no matter where they are. There are always choices. Often you pick one choice, you forego the other. There is always a price, an opportunity cost, whether it is time, money, emotions, energy, potentials. 

So now I ponder, where is the limit? What are people willing to trade to get what they want?

Now one thing to consider: opportunity costs only apply to business/conditional relationships. Opportunity costs does not apply on family relations.

First I need to define the relationship I’m referring to (because English language is limited): it is the state of being related, not the state of interaction. Just like how the parable of the lost son, even though the son squandered his father’s money and left, it does not change the fact he is still his son. Another example is even though if a parent has Alzheimer’s and forgets you, it does not change the relationship status. There is no cost; the relationship is unconditional; it exists because it is.

This is what Jesus offers, it is this status of unconditional relationship. It is not a business deal: “here is something for this of yours”. It is an invitation, “come and be adopted”. 

Is this too good to be true? How? Why?

Because God is love; it is His character and does not change ever. He made the world perfect.

Humans are a different story though.

The opportunity cost to make humans able to love is allowing them able to choose not to love; humans were capable of choosing between good and the absence of good, which we now know as the word evil, both moral evil and natural evil.

Moral evil is what people do and the choices they make, that is what makes people hungry, that is what causes wars, that is what causes heartbreaks, that is what causes people to get shot.

Natural evil is when the earth became cursed, like wildfires, earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis. When we humans told God to shove off, He partially honored our request. Nature began to revolt. The earth was cursed. Genetic breakdown and disease began. Pain and death became part of the human experience. 

Here is a less-than-perfect analogy for this opportunity cost God took: even before parents had children, couldn’t they foresee that there was the very real possibility they may suffer disappointment or pain or heartache in life, or that they might even hurt the parents and walk away? Of course — but parents still had kids. Why? Because they knew there was also the potential for tremendous joy and deep love and great meaning.

“God took the very worst thing that has ever happened in the history of the universe — the death of God on the cross — and turned it into the very best thing that has happened in history of universe: the opening up of heaven to all who follow Him.” http://www.biblegateway.com/blog/2012/07/why-does-god-allow-tragedy-and-suffering/

I got lazy and decided to use someone else’s blog, but it’s pretty filling.

Anyways, the opportunity cost of following Jesus is your fleshly body. It seems to be a big price, but it’s actually not, considering what people’s flesh is. It’s mortgages, bankruptcy, or in accounting terms: “accounts unpayable”. What you need to give up is your values and exchange it for Jesus’s values, in essence, allow Jesus give you a new heart.

So many people asked me, what are you doing with your degree in economics? This is a part of the answer.

This is what studying economics do for me, more than learning equations and strategies and policies, economics allow me see things in a bigger perspective rationally.

What looks bad in the short term may be good for the long term, and what looks good in the short term may be bad for the long term. 

I’m reading this book called Good to Great by Jim Collins. It’s a book analyzing how companies turn from good to great. One of the commonalities between them is they didn’t do more, but they focused on what to stop doing and give up for the greater good. 

Totally makes sense: in order to be greater than what you are now, you need to shed away the crap and hinders your goals. 

Then the question quickly becomes: What is your values and goal in life? If the “crap” you need to get rid of to achieve that goal is actually good, you should reevaluate your goal and your values. Don’t let your opportunity cost be higher than your result.

When I decide to follow Jesus, I know my opportunity cost is nothing compared to the result. Even now when I decided to go on missions to Thailand, I know the opportunity cost (my career/family approval/personal comfort)is nothing compared to the result of people’s lives saved and changed eternally. 

Yes, if anyone sees this and wants to support whether by prayer or financially for this trip, please message me. I’ll be leaving June 19th and I need the funds sent in by 15th. When you allow God to use your resources, you will not regret it, in fact, you’ll be more at peace because you know someone’s life will be changed and you are part of the reason why.

This was supposed to be a short rant about opportunity costs, but stuff popped up in my mind and I just had to keep writing.

So this is an example of what I think about when I lie down on my bed.

Why Mak is Mak

I’m writing this so one day I can look back and see how I got to to the point where I will be, if I lose my memories one day, this is where it’ll be.

Depending on how well people know me, inevitably, they’ll see something strange about me

Something not regular, abnormal, different from others.

Maybe it’s just this part of my personality that makes the entirety of me.

Ever since I was conscious, there is this strange feeling that I don’t belong. When I was first exposed to people aka family, aka kindergarten, there was a time when I fought that feeling, and I wanted to conform to people and their patterns, because that was all I knew, I can’t do what I don’t know. There was this feeling to be like everyone else because that’s what I thought growing up is as a child: being a part of my family, being in my friend’s group, being in my class, etc… different groups of community basically.

I can say I’m comfortable in those groups, I can say I have fun in those groups, I can say I work well (from others perspective) in those groups. Although I’ve never really felt I belong in any of those groups: family, friends, classmates, any type of human relation. I’ve never felt like I’m attached to anyone, although people probably feel attached to me. 

That is not to say I don’t trust people, I enjoy my friends and family and I would easily give my life for them, perhaps even for strangers because I’m about as attached to my friends and family as much as the random dog walker, it’s just a matter of how much others are attached to me.

Then there’s a whole new tangent of how I value my life, but that’s another story.

When I moved to America, I couldn’t speak to anyone at school. I think it’s part of the reason why my talking/speaking process is really slow; it never really took off. My command of language (talking-wise) seems to be at the level of an advanced fourth grader. My mind is a different story though, my mind is an everlasting storm cloud in my brain. Why are people satisfied with normality? Why are people satisfied with comfort and stability? They are nice things, but nice is not good enough for me. There is good, and there is great, and there is the greatest. Until I’m the greatest, there’s no reason to stay in the level of “good”.

But there’s probably no way I can be the greatest, so there’s always new ways, new thinking. 

That’s why I don’t ever feel like I belong with people. I don’t want to follow after limited people, I want to be limitless. 

That’s where Jesus comes in. He is limitless, and by knowing Him, I am limitless too. Obviously there is so much more I need to work on, because I was born limited, constrained, chained, enslaved by sin: the world, the flesh, and Satan. With Jesus, I am free to be limitless as all people should be. 

Without Jesus, I don’t think I would have any morality at all. Remember I don’t feel any attachment to anyone and anything. If I give in to my desires, I would conquer the world. 

My ambition is world domination. The reason I use the word “is” because even after knowing Jesus, it is still my ambition, but it’s a different way of conquering than conventional thinking.

Quoting Napoleon on Jesus, “I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him.”

This is how I want to conquer the world.

I love Jesus, so I want to expand His Kingdom, by His ways, by His rules. His ways are limitless compare to the ways of man. 

So following Jesus makes me limitless.

Now where does the attachmentless me come in?

I’ve figured it out.  

Because I don’t belong to anyone, I can be with anyone.

My AP US History teacher once said, “As you grow older, you’ll see the ceiling will get closer and closer to you,”

It is true, when I was alone.

But when I knew God, I have overcame those limits and those barriers. My mind is free when I focus on God.

The only time when I get influenced by other things is when I look away from God. Those are the times when I screw up.

But God always draws me back to him because he is faithful when I am not.

So yup, my Makness, my freedom, my reason and vision began when Jesus came to me.

I am still me, but merely a limitless version of me, because I let someone limitless influence me. 

I want people to see Jesus when they see me, because I’m just a fragment of the whole, and they like what they see in me, I hope they’ll find the whole.

 

 

What is the meaning of life?

Some people hate the meaning of life, some people run away/ignore/laze away from it, some people love the meaning of life. There is no “moderate” approach.

When people met Jesus, some people hate Jesus, some people run away/ignore/laze away from Jesus, yet some people love Jesus. There is no “moderate” approach.

Coincidence?

There can never be empirical evidence the God exist or not; empirical evidence requires observation, yet we can never observe God tangibly. Statistically speaking, it’s a 50/50 chance of getting it right.

What about the elephant and the blind men? Everyone has a part of the main picture right? The problem is they are all blind and they do not know what the elephant really looks like. There has to be a truth, otherwise we humans would not be looking for it.

There will be truth, and everything else will be false.

50/50 chance.

So what now?

Of course we can put it off, life is too busy, I have to live first, etc…

One does not simply expect to wake up in the next morning.

Good luck?

 

A short journey (?)

What is life that it should last a long time?

I really think I almost died by cake. It’s that easy. I wonder if I will die anytime now.

Choking on cake instilled a fear I had not known, fear of not able to breath. And death by cake is not something I would’ve liked or even thought of.. I’m glad it’s kind of over, but my fleshly body still has survival mode on (feel like I’m on the verge of hyperventilating). Even when I know where I will go, my body fights against it.

I’m pretty sure people will say nice things at my funeral. I would like it to be not too gloomy though. If I die, I want people to be happy for me. People will be sad, it’s only natural, but I’ll be with Jesus and that’s everything. I would want to die without noticing the process of dying. The process is a little uncomfortable, kind of just want to skip it n fast forward to the good part. But maybe I’ll come back if you do put me on life support, and I may be able to tell real cool stories when I get back, instead of regular cool stories.

I really don’t have anything to pass to anyone. I suppose I can start writing my will, although I have no witness or any lawyer, this will be a good guideline if I die tomorrow.

I started writing it, and then I thought some things are too personal to put it here, so I think I would write individual letters and put it to my Google doc in a folder called My Will. If I die, it’ll be useful, of I don’t, I have something to look at as I get older. I don’t know if I can do everything tonight. I did drink a big coffee, so…

I still wish I could have done a little more, a little more fishing, spend a little more time with people, maybe get a girlfriend? A wife? Children maybe? Or at least get a chance to say something about what I ________ (I don’t know what word to put, it’s a feeling but it’s not, it’s like me being me but it’s towards someone). Or it’s actually better if I take it to the grave. All the secrets are belong to me. Hue hue hue. I am positive I will always want to do more even if I die 60 years in the future, I’m more positive I’ll forget all these after I meet Jesus.

Phillipians 1:21 To live is to Christ and to die is to gain.

I can totally see what Paul was gong through. Just when I thought I had it figured out God teaches me more deeply. As if that God sinks me into a ocean of truth enveloping me to the blunt of this reality: the conflict between staying in this world and being with Jesus. 

There is also the desire of the fleshly mind and body top stay alive and keep awareness and sensations in this world of atoms. The fact is our perception of reality is limited to the reality we are in. We cannot make up something we cannot see existing in our world, but we may be able to find and see clues of something not of this world of atoms. If we are to say there need to be empirical proof, then I’m going to need empirical proof whoever is actually reading this exists, or someone that exists, not just a figment of my imagination.

I do have a present to give to someone if I stay alive long enough. I didn’t wrap it yet, so I doubt anyone will know where it is or even know if it’s a gift. So good luck to that person.

Then there’s the kids that in tutoring, not sure if anyone can replace me. My pride says. Well, I haven’t seen anyone come close to being similar to me so… My logic says. I’m pretty sure God can use my absence for something greater than having my presence on Earth. Reminded by the HS.

I do really want to write a book or two, but as I started, I realize what a mess it is without a roadmap. And so I wanted to read more and see more clearly the picture I want to draw. Not even 1% is firm, it’s all in pencil. Maybe I will live long enough to finish it? Maybe I’ll be like Mozart, love the way he writes his music.
I do want to go to sleep, not like dying sleep but sleep sleep. But I think caffeine kicked in and will last for a while. And I just got a cramp in my toe…

I’m actually writing all this on my bed, because I still don’t feel well enough to sit upright.

I do think I’m doing better, but what I think may just be an illusion.

What would my epitaph be? I want to make up something cool but I’m having a writer’s block moment right now..

“later” “Hin Lun Mak lies here does not” “Death by cake ez” “my cool story starts another chapter” “one does not simply stay on earth” “not sure if alive or alive”

So now my right foot toe cramps… Almost expecting my heart to cramp…
Or the roof to fall on me
Or a plane crash into my room
Or random assassin shank me
Or I stop breathing randomly
Etc…

Be creative and think about the possibilities! Be it death or life.

Don’t follow limited people and things, but follow the Everlasting God.

I do hope people consider why they believe what they believe: test it, because there might be a wall you put blocking the inconvenient Truth.

Be honest to yourself at the very least.

I do hope I wake up tomorrow. If I don’t, good bye, hopefully I’ll see you.

I am pretty tired, but that caffeine… *$3%&*7*$5%!3&’8:%#@%&-“^¶¢¢^π®£π×{¶| ••ππ÷°×=×°÷¶

Wants to go pee…

I had a dream last night and some people got me really mad I chucked a chair and broke a huge glass window because those people wanted me to do something I see no value in and is against my very existence. I woke up pretty mad.. The anger went away but it does concern me why I feel the way I feel.

Time to bust out the dream dictionary huehuehue..

 

So it begins (again)

I am finally back to a place of blur and obscurity. I believe this is the third time I try to keep my blog active, let’s see how it goes.

Here I am at another fork in my life, except it’s not the simple pick two game, it’s a bajillion different options of where I can go and what I can do. All I have to do is to take the first step. I have a great idea for an app (unlike anything you’ve seen on any Appstore) , I’ve started writing a book on Google Docs (2 pages, stuck on a different type of fork, maybe it’ll turn out to be a short story, or it can become the next Narnia), and then there are many different types of careers that I am capable of doing.

But before making decision to all that, I have to consider what I value most in this life. It all leads to the question many people are asking, “What is my purpose in life?”

Well I already know what is my purpose, in fact, I know what YOUR purpose is. It’s an outrageous and absurd statement, but not too outrageous if you were to know about the truth about existence, the One who made it and why.

I originally began to write this to talk about random things, but since my hands has lead me up to this, then I will share a little more of what science says about God. (Man, I thought this post was going to be short…)

#1 “But science already proves God doesn’t exist?” or #2 “Evolution proves we come from monkeys.” And there are many “scientific” statements that argues against the existence of a omnipotent, omniscient, and loving God.

That’s not really the important part, but nevertheless, for the sake of this post, I need to answer those two statements at the very least. I’ll talk about the important part once I finish explaining. You can skip this if you want to, just press CTRL+F or Command/F if you’re on iOS

#1

#2

*4S.

#1 “But science already proves God doesn’t exist?”

Firstly I will define science using online dictionaries, I’ll list 2, but you can look it up in different places as well.

Science
– (from Dictionary.com) systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.
– (from Merriam-Webster) knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method

(observation/question, create hypothesis, predict results, test hypothesis by observing/testing experiment, end with analysis)

I am defining science as the way to gain knowledge of something. There are other definitions for science as well, such as “the state of knowing : knowledge as distinguished from ignorance or misunderstanding”

From the above definitions, in the simplest terms, the scientific method is the following: look at something, do something with it and see if anything interesting happens, look at the results and see if it worked out.
(This is my interpretation of the scientific method for easier digestion for readers)

The first step, “look at something”, the basis of science, defined as a way of gaining knowledge, only works on the physical and tangible.

Is God physical and tangible? I will not define God in human terms but by His own Word. John 4:24 “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship him in spirit and in truth.” Jesus himself says “God is spirit” This leads to the conclusion: the scientific method cannot be used on God, therefore science is incapable of proving and denying God’s existence.

I just used the scientific method by the way to prove scientific method is useless on the existence of God.

(Question/Observation: Can science prove God’s existence? Hypothesis: If the scientific method cannot observe God, then science is incapable of prove nor deny God’s existence. Experiment: Find definition for science and scientific method, in additional to find the composition of God in reliable sources. Analysis: Scientific Method can only be used on the physical and material. “God is Spirit”. Spirit is neither physical and material. Scientific Method cannot be used. Conclusion: Science cannot prove nor deny God’s existence.)

Are you still reading? I congratulate you on your willingness to seek truth and knowledge. Jesus says “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
I hope you can find what you seek in this post: E.G. purpose of your life, or for all human life.

#2 “Evolution proves we come from monkeys.”

I’m not an expert on this question, so if you really want to look, here’s a page I found. I believe you should find opposing arguments and see which ones are more logical. The truth always wins. Think of this as if you having no more clean underwear left and you’ve already flipped a side.

http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/nab2/humans-evolve-apelike-creatures

http://www.proof-of-evolution.com/ape-to-human-evolution.html

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110119153936AANNkKn

(I don’t know why but Google Search is strangely for proving how we don’t come from Apes, I typed “how DNA proves we come from apes”, “evolution proves we come from monkeys”, and “evolution proves we come from apes” see if you get the same results)

*4S

So that stuff above is not really that important. If that’s not important, what is? This message is the most valuable thing that you will ever hear and should you choose to believe, it will change your life. This is the Christian Gospel (not Catholicism, not Mormon, not Jehovah’s Witness) in its simplest form and all that you need. I hope I don’t get owned by any copy write for sharing this. So I will write this in a different way. Hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing this.

A Day In the Life

Scene 1: Outside Science and Engineering Library in UC Santa Cruz on a Wednesday Afternoon.

Two strangers begin to walk up to a poor fellow studying for Organic Chemistry

STRANGER A

(walks up behind Poor Fellow)

Have you 5 minutes of your time?

POOR FELLOW

(Haven’t turned around yet)

I don’t want to buy your stinky perfume. Shoo! Go Away!

(Turns around upon realization it is not the perfume salesperson)

Oh… Sorry, I was really annoyed by this perfume guy. He was here earlier going around bothering everyone. What do you want?

STRANGER B

(whispers to stranger A)

다음사람으로 넘어가는게 좋을거같아?

(Show Captions when possible: “Maybe we should move on to the next person)

STRANGER A

그냥 해

(Poor Fellow looks at them curiously)

(Show Captions when possible: Just do it)

STRANGER B

(turns to Poor Fellow)

So we’re from this campus ministry called KCCC, and here’s this little booklet I would like to share with you.

POOR FELLOW

Oh sure, I’m bored from studying.

STRANGER A

So here’s this booklet.

(Shows booklet to Poor Fellow)

(Projector: Cover of 4 Spiritual Laws)

STRANGER A

(Reads straight up from book, flipping cover so only one page is shown at a time, using a pen to point at the words in the book as Stranger A reads to Poor Fellow. Poor Fellow nods occasionally along with responsive mmhmm during the reading eventually stares at his fingernails and attempts to clean them)

(Projector: Show pages as Stranger A reads)

Four Spiritual Laws

Just as there are physical laws that govern
the physical universe, so are there spiritual laws
that govern your relationship with God.

God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life.

God’s Love
“God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16, NIV).

God’s Plan
[Christ speaking] “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly”
[that it might be full and meaningful] (John 10:10).

Why is it that most people are not experiencing that abundant life?

Because…

Man is sinful and separated from God.
Therefore, he cannot know and experience
God’s love and plan for his life.

Man is Sinful
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

Man was created to have fellowship with God; but, because of his own stubborn
self-will, he chose to go his own independent way and fellowship with God was broken.
This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference,
is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin.

Man Is Separated
“The wages of sin is death” [spiritual separation from God] (Romans 6:23).

This diagram illustrates that God is holy and man is sinful. A great gulf separates the two. The arrows illustrate that man is continually trying to reach God and the abundant life through his own efforts, such as a good life, philosophy, or religion
-but he inevitably fails.

The third law explains the only way to bridge this gulf…

Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for man’s sin.
Through Him you can know and experience
God’s love and plan for your life.

He Died In Our Place
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

He Rose from the Dead
“Christ died for our sins… He was buried… He was raised on the third day,
according to the Scriptures… He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve.
After that He appeared to more than five hundred…” (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).

He Is the Only Way to God
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one comes to
the Father but through Me'” (John 14:6).

This diagram illustrates that God has bridged the gulf that separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins.

It is not enough just to know these three laws…

We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord;
then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives.

We Must Receive Christ
“As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children
of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12).

We Receive Christ Through Faith
“By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves,
it is the gift of God; not as result of works that no one should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9).

When We Receive Christ, We Experience a New Birth
(Read John 3:1-8.)

We Receive Christ Through Personal Invitation
[Christ speaking] “Behold, I stand at the door and knock;
if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20).

Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting
Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us what He wants us to be.
Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross
for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience.
We receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of the will.

These two circles represent two kinds of lives:


Self-Directed Life
S-Self is on the throne
-Christ is outside the life
-Interests are directed by self, often
resulting in discord and frustration

Christ-Directed Life
-Christ is in the life and on the throne
S-Self is yielding to Christ,
resulting in harmony with God’s plan
-Interests are directed by Christ,
resulting in harmony with God’s plan

(End of Reading)

STRANGER A

(Talks to Poor Fellow face to face)

Which circle best represents your life?

POOR FELLOW

(Points to the left circle)

STRANGER A

Now, which circle would you like to have represent your life?

POOR FELLOW

I don’t know yet.

STRANGER A

It is a pretty big decision, so if you ever want to accept Jesus in your life, you can do this.

(Points to the booklet again, with the pen, and reads)

The following explains how you can receive Christ:

You Can Receive Christ Right Now by Faith Through Prayer
(Prayer is talking with God)

God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude
of your heart. The following is a suggested prayer:

Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life.
Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

Does this prayer express the desire of your heart? If it does, I invite you to pray this
prayer right now, and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.

POOR FELLOW

I’ll see, I think I need to know more first before I do anything.

STRANGER B

That’s good. Let me just show you what happens when you receive Jesus in your life.

(Read up to 5:18)

You know we actually have a thing tonight at Social Science RM 110 @ 7PM. We meet on every Wednesday night. You can come check it out.

POOR FELLOW

Sure, can I get your number in case I want to go?

STRANGER B

(takes out phone)

Sure.

POOR FELLOW

My number is 820104313344, call me or text me. I got to go.

STRANGER A + B

Nice meeting you. Hope we see you again.

(Waves bye, walks around for next victim)

Now wasn’t that a great story? Maybe I’ll continue it on a different post.

Let’s see if I can do that fashion blog up next time.

Maybe I’ll continue in Ch. 1 of my book.

Oh and I just got a haircut. I’ll post a picture when I have better lighting conditions.
