It's possible to think otherwise?

It's not only possible to think, but to know otherwise.

Can you breathe virtual air?  Eat virtual food?  Drink virtual water?

It's nice to make a statement as if it were axiomatic.  It's nicer to grow balls and provide evidence.

I thought this was fairly telling...

DO YOU WRITE THE MUSIC FIRST OR THE LYRICS FIRST?

J: Both first.  We come up with song titles and riffs first.

K: We come up with a basic concept first.

Crow see what human can't. Human not like crow. You can see why.
Crow not care be liked by human. Crow only like be crow.
Crap on human head (:> --------- :(

Crows are quick with a joke; I find it to be an endearing trait.  I just suspect that one of our humans trying to joke with our resident crow, and something was lost in translation.

Is it perhaps that crows are perhaps simply too honest for irony?

NASA: Civilization is Doomed

Technological change can raise the efficiency of resource use, but it also tends to raise both per capita resource consumption and the scale of resource extraction, so that, absent policy effects, the increases in consumption often compensate for the increased efficiency of resource use.

Pull up your chairs, ladies and gentleman; you're getting front row seats for the hottest new apocalypse around!

We must resist entropy.

You propose that we resist a mechanism that is hardwired into the nature of reality?

I'll admit, I had the same reaction.

Well, it doesn't really mean anything, because any actual meaning has been chemically stripped to leave only pure posture behind, but, hey, it doesn't actually mean anything, so anyone can do it.  Now you've got something to lord it over that Tesla-driving bitch down the street who thinks she's better than you.

Democracy leads to a society built on institutions which cater to the masses desires. When the masses are given free reign, they always gravitate towards endless pleasure with no deep meaning, and so we get a society full of fast food restaurants...

This is true, but there are also false elites. Take a long hard look at what's coming out of Silicon Valley today. Some guy invents ButtSwapr, an application for finding sodomy in public restrooms, and gets offered $100m in funding. There's broken brains there because these people while putatively "smart" are incapable of any depth of thinking. It makes it doubly dangerous when they start launching, a la Bill Gates, on Soviet style social engineering experiments.

Well, once you've delegitimized every natural frame of reference for judging the worth of hairless apes, how do you determine what constitutes the elite?  Why, you check and see how much cash they can stack. 

What fascinates me is the ambiguous cultural space so many of these tech and finance tycoons are made to occupy.  We have to somehow freight all the cash stacking with drama and meaning, so these guys are always either saviors or demons, moneyed Messiahs or Bond supervillains.  It speaks, I suspect, to a society of dependency and excuse making.

I never looked at it that way. Golly, but you're a cynic :)

Keep Austin irradiated. ;)

What's that going to mean to the masses? Load up on opinions about whatever is being mindfulnessed?

Buy more chips.  Isn't that what it always means?  To society, I mean.

Tending your garden and building a shed may not be the best way to carry out such activities.
While a drive-through massacre, while admittedly not very elegant, does get the job done.

Pulling weeds, drive-through massacre; kinda the same thing, no?

Freedom is a state of not wondering-if-you're/demanding-to-be free.

What is it if you're in a state of not-caring-if-you're free?
