About Me

Picture of Joseph CantrellHello world!  I'm Joseph Richard Cantrell, a computer scientist with a passion for lighting the torch of mutual prosperity.  I am merely an extraordinary man and nothing more.  I will speak more on that later, but beginning November 21, 1995, I grew up on Emerson Avenue in the old land of the free and the new world of the brave, the United States of America.  At age 5, I abandoned Christianity to be agnostic, and I ironically pushed forward an exceptional Atheist at age 7 while at Christian summer camp.  Meta4's this way and meta4's that way; I'm also the United States of America, and the Golden Rule, the One rule to rule them all, is my Constitution.  For eighteen years, I lived in Columbus with my mother Patricia Cantrell before moving to Atlanta, Georgia in 2014 to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology and begin anew. 

I always craved entrepreneurship for the freedom it brings myself and society.  However, massive amounts of investment capital did not exist in my household, so I forsook my Business Administration degree plans and set my sights on a Computer Science degree several months before attending college.  As a developer I have experience programming using a diverse set of technologies like electrical circuits, assembly, C, NativeScript, and NodeJS.  I coded this website by teaching myself PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with the wealth of knowledge on the internet.  I love playing video games and have learned to make my own games using the open source game engine Godot.  Multiprocessor algorithm efficiency is summarized by the expression speedup(P processor algorithm) / P, which shows how well the total work (Joules per second) of a serial (single processor) algorithm can be distributed among the P processors using a new parallel algorithm.  Superlinear speedup, a division of labor using new parallel processing algorithms, allows for higher efficiency than 1 (I'm also talking about money!).  However, expect there to be diminishing marginal returns as you repeat the same process.  Right, I'm a drill sergeant with lots of experience and I want one composition: NoSQL or MySQL.  With my brain and a Bachelor of Science of Computer Science, I am a doctor with no Ph.D. and there is nothing beyond my mind!  Everything is easy; piece by piece and step by step I can read, analyze, and apply any information. 

Here's a quick rundown of my hobbies.  I have spent 84 days of my life playing Modern Warfare 2 and 50 days playing Borderlands 2 on Xbox 360.  This equates to 6.8% of my time in high school mostly playing Search and Destroy in Modern Warfare 2.  Metro Exodus and Modern Warfare are currently my favorite games, and I have now moved to the Windows platform (PCM4$T3R4C34LYF3).  I also enjoy games like Dark Souls, Red Dead Redemption 2, Dying Light, Bioshock Infinite, Halo Reach, and Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs. Machine Learning and Philosophy of Science, Technology, and Human Values are my favorite Georgia Tech classes.  My favorite type of music is metal, and some of my favorite artists are Slayer, Soilwork, and Boosie BadAzz, though I'm also quite partial to the series Punk Goes...  Animated television shows are my favorite because they are an inexpensive artistic medium attracting eccentric talent; I rank The Boondocks and ChäoS;HEAd very highly.  Without their original creators, Borderlands The Pre-Seqeuel and The Boondocks Season 4 were too modular, so I can't wait for the real SQL's.  Some of my favorite movies include Scarface and Tropic Thunder.  Brave New World and The Stranger are some of my favorite novels, and although I quite enjoyed The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings was difficult for me to finish at times.  Life is like a single novel in that you only live one part, yet life is a trilogy in that death shall give birth to life and its death.  I ought to think the moral of The Chronicles of Narnia is the comfort of one's own home is the best place to explore, and rides afloat the seas are often timelessly an ever swallowing maelstrom.  I enjoy weightlifting and perform bench press, bent over rows, military press, barbell curls, deadlifts, light stability squats, and weighted pullups to build strength and stay healthy.  Lately, my best deadlift is five repetitions of 405 pounds.

The origin of the universe is of great concern to me.  The three spacial dimensions before you intertwine with time, elucidating timespace.  When your velocity increases, time will tick more slowly for you.  In mathematics it is easy to imagine four spatial dimensions using linear algebra.  Thus, time can be seen as an extension of space: a fourth dimension creating spacetime.  In mathematics, it is easy to imagine an infinite number of dimensions.  Stephen Hawking conjectures this universe is an offshoot of a universe encapsulating more dimensions.  Any "timespacial" dimensions perpendicular to these four "timespacial" dimensions would be imperceptible to us.  It is easy to imagine this universe can be perpendicular in space to another universe; quantum entanglement indicates this universe is a self-containing system originating from a place where our perception of time does not exist at all.  If two particles are entangled, a change in the state of one particle will instantaneously flip the state of the partner particle.  This quantum exchange of information cannot be measured as the particle's state changes as one measures its properties.  This correlation of particles shows there is one more time dimension governing this quantum leap: imaginary time.  Along each point in this fifth dimension, the characteristics of spacetime are predicted as points in a five dimensional (x-y-z-time-iTime) plane.  Through an anomalous Big Bang, imaginary time wrought a single point in spacetime: our universe.  This point in the newfound spacetime, a singularity analogous to a black hole, contained all the matter and energy in our known universe.  Because the grandiose mass of a black hole gravitates light to absolute zero velocity and halts the flow of time, the Big Bang's initial scatter of mass created time.  Indeed, black holes are anomalies in our universe, and the physics governing our universe apply neither there nor in the singularity.  After the Big Bang, stars collected and nuclear fusion supernovae spewed forth larger atoms such as carbon to coalesce into planets.  Water molecules allowed autonomous machines called bacteria cells to collect and mutate into multicellular organisms such as fungi and humans.  Indeed, the universe is expanding, and for every coalescence there exists an equal but opposite dissipation.  The universe will collapse back into a spacetime singularity, yet ever increasing entropy ensures time forever flows forward.  The laws of physics shall once again break down in this new singularity, and a new universe will reign, but it shall not be our own.  Consider this universe a balloon you may inflate until one day you don't see the deflation anymore. 

As I remain an ADHD atheist, I'm delighted scientists are still researching to move humanity to its highest apexes of enlightenment.  Decode my obfuscated JavaScript code (I invented typefuck), and refresh straight away for secret magnetic induction powers to blacken the hole of the Milky Way.  101010x3!
