P01 : Observation

According to the Merrium-Webster Dictionary, the meaning of the word "Observation" is :

  1. an act or instance of observing a custom, rule, or law observation of the dress code
  2.  an act of recognizing and noting a fact or occurrence, a record or description so obtained Scientifically 
  3. a judgment on or inference from what one has observed; 

Wikipedia describes observation as :

  • an active acquisition of information from a primary source. 
  • In living beings, observation employs the senses. 
  • In science, observation can also involve the recording of data via the use of instruments. 
  • The term may also refer to any data collected during the scientific activity. 
  • Observations can be qualitative, that is, only the absence or presence of a property is noted, or quantitative if a numerical value is attached to the observed phenomenon by counting or measuring.

This blog is my honest attempt towards recording my observation of the world; physical, social and beyond, from the primary sources as far as possible, and reporting other scientific observations which I find interesting to mention here.
