About 2.5% of the population are actually capable of multi-tasking. (supertaskers)

Interzone / My death
« on: January 22, 2014, 01:23:01 AM »
Approximately 3.7 days from now, I will be killed.

I will die by my own name, my own blood, my greatest allies.

More over, I will die by my own hand.

As no other way could there be.

For my death, will die with me all of my kind.

And for your murder, will grow on your face 10,000 demons.

Give unto me,

The Wretch.

Interzone / Re: "The poor": kill them
« on: January 16, 2014, 11:00:09 PM »
It's time to stop the grandstanding about "the poor."

There is no "the poor." There are varying income levels which correlate with the degree to which you have your shit together.

...

Kill the poor.

Never make an absolute move like that based on a moderate correlation. The point of being able to play mental simulations like this is that we can keep improving out levels of correlation until it becomes an effective causal relationship.

I'm sure the world would be better if the under "120s" just disappeared, but why is this? What is this magical quality of humans that we are trying to preserve, and what would be a better way to determine it?

Besides, it's not about money, it's about influence. Money helps you attain influence, but there are various other ways to it - some of them essentiall self-contained to a naive observer.

(And in an over-populated world, sometimes the best move for the whole is simply to not consume, i.e. to self-induce poorness. Such a subset of the population makes for good impact absorbtion any time a crisis comes close, and such a discriminatory move such as being poor = being inferior means to ignore this function of keeping the species moving in a crisis. But then, who wants to keep the species going anyway?)

Correlation becomes Causation when all Concepts are Cleared.

Think of it like this. An under 120 believes what they are told. An over 120 does not. If the under 120 dies out, then over 120 remains. People no longer do what they are told, and as the tellers have the power to destroy, and the lack of care to do it, without anyone for them to TELL to do it, who will do it? They're probably too lazy themselves.

Consumption leads to the expulsion of waste. But the garbage of one can be the treasure of another. Everything keeps cycling around. Things sort themselves out. When something feels it is going to die, whether that be an individual, a gene, anything that can do, every piece of preparation for that moment gets put into play.

This doesn't demonstrate anything against philosophical Free Will, only conventional Free Will.

Philosophical Free Will can't be demonstrated on this level, only biological responses.

The question of Free Will is meaningless until we know what it is.

Free Will goes beyond the biological, chemical, physical, metaphysical and mathematical.

Free Will is what everything is made of.

Discussions are good, but emotions are better left to emos.-

Hm, I hadn't drawn the connection to emotions, but you could be right.

I would say emotions are better left to art, to be controlled by the one who experiences, and left to fuel.

The problem with arguments, is that generally neither party is really listening to the other. They scan the other person's view for somewhat strawmanned (i.e. not what was really being expressed) versions of the arguments, so they can auto-strike and strengthen their own view, and perhaps to "convert" the malleable to reason as they do.

 I find that usually, all that is going to be said will be said at the start and then reiterated. Something like: thesis -> anti-thesis -> thesis -> anti-thesis, ad infinitum, rather than the much more efficient: thesis -> anti-thesis -> synthesis.

Without a synthesis of views, what is the point?

(I do see the holes in the synthesis view, such as falling into compromise and lowest common denominator opinions, and counter-productive "progress")

I got ya;

There is nothing wrong with being sexist, racist, speciesist, or with killing a human, or an animal, or yourself, for whatever reason.

There are, however, repercussions.

Synthesis.

Morality is like a house. We need a house to live in*, but the one we're living in at the moment is poorly constructed and falling apart. Just tear the fucker down and start again.

* ya know, for the sake of the analogy I mean

Tbh, the lengthy debates like these make for my least favourite threads on the site.

Take a step back!

Man's one natural predator: The Group.

Insecurity leads us to believe we are social creatures.
Insecure creatures lead us to believe we are supposed to be social.
Without insecurity, we have limited use for socialization.
The socialized need us to be social, so that they do not feel insecure.
Simply being social is not enough; we must then be social enough.
We are not insecure until society causes us to be.
Society, by its very nature, causes insecurity.
You can easily see the madness inherent in this.

Why did you write this?

Words are very unnecessary, they can only do harm.

It's one of them there paradoxes.

I eat meat, and I don't even know how to hunt.

How fucked is that.  :o

Well that's exactly the problem, isn't it?
The relationship between man and nature.
How can it be that man still doesn't understand he is nature, and had better bloody well start behaving appropriately.

Maybe so, but why should I care?

The "obvious" answer is that it's something to do with their diet.

I say it's like, "I got a right to be hostile, man, my people being persecuted."


If I were crazier, I would say that a life full of depression in cows due to how they are brought up leads to toxic chemicals seeping into their meat, which when consumed cause the consumer to become more pliant, killing the fighting spirit.

"Would you believe that a broad range of human struggles can be understood by using a mathematical formula? From child-parent struggles to cyber-attacks and civil unrest, they can all be explained with a simple mathematical expression called a "power-law." "

Sounds like something I would think up. Lol.

Just watch a pair of bats that don't have any worries. Next year there will be scores.
Nature loves a vacuum :)

Bats are fucking cool, just saiyan.

Nice rack.

Both she and I were somewhat nonplussed by that.
Rack? Do you mean 'wrap'? Or perhaps you are referring to the nice cedar fence?
Surely it isn't a reference to her knockers, which are not even slightly visible...

I think it was an Asphyx reference.

Good ol' Schopie.

I really must get around to reading more of him.

Why, just the title of his book is life changing.
