mircea_popescu: so listen... while you were away there's been a lot of progress ongoing in the republic, these guys now have blogs and stick to publishing planning schedules and such wunderbar alien techs. you gonna catch up with the group ?
mircea_popescu: << here's what ~i~ mean : as you live, the very substance of what living even is will work to expose things you're no good at. this is what it is, and what it can ever possibly be. much like all energy manipulation is an entropy increase, all living is self-discovery.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-12-27 08:17:17 mp_en_viaje: neways, your main hope is deconstructing the supression machine, not trying to find it new fields of employ.
mircea_popescu: every time you discover something, you get the same exact choice, again and again each time. you get the same choice that also happens to be the ~only~ meaningful choice you ever get, or ever could possibly get : are you going to fix it ?
mircea_popescu: there's strictly two possible answers you can ever produce, and they're yes or no. yes sucks because, well... it is suicide. [][]quite literally], the little girl gotta die.
mircea_popescu: no sucks because... it really doesn't. once you decide you actually "like" your dysfunction, or in any case you're not equal to its remedial, you're stuck hanging out in #asciilifeform with all the other cripples.
mircea_popescu: your life becomes a carousel of a) identifying partitions upon the world that'll neatly divide it across the line of "this part exposes my dysfunction" / "this part doesn't expose my dysfunction" (definitionally an impossible task) and b) making up stories about how it all works out, or will, or whatever.
mircea_popescu: in the end, what you do is hang out with the other cripples. that's it, the loser table at the highschool cafeteria, where you tell each other stories of "how you aren't really geeks", and how one day you'll get the cheerleader, the usual fare. making pacts about losing your virginity by end of school...
mircea_popescu: it's not exactly novel, but on the contrary well documented to date. lotta cripples have lived since the practical implementation of rochester's all men be cowards if they durst.
mircea_popescu: it gets you stuck saying patently dumb shit like "alliance of the smart against the stupid" when what you quite transparently ~really~ mean is very much "i thought this guy was gonna vouch for my imaginary partitions of a) above!" ;
mircea_popescu: and everyone else is stuck somehow reconciling your supposed "great technical acumen" with your apparent incapacity to intellectually function enough to match a age-adequately developed nine year old slut -- which is incidentally how the elaborate narrative of the naysayers even evoloved over time : the others dealing with the anal child is how anal childhood even gets implanted in heads in the first place.
mircea_popescu: from whence it can further spread -- much like camels who never saw other camels spit don't know how to spit nor ever spit, while camels who did see other camels spit do know how and actually do it, just so people don't come up with evil naturally, they just replicate it from having seen it before.
mircea_popescu: this isn't a complaint -- i don't personally mind evil exists, nor do i believe it shouldn't exist or that its absence would signal any kind of improvement. without evil the world's boring as fuck, which is why idiots asking dumb questions like "how come an infinitely good god has small children raped to death" are fucking stupid. evil is a better addition to the world than fucking cinema, it'd be way too borning to try
mircea_popescu: and live without.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless -- this introduces no relativism. the ethical choice stays the ethical choice, and the moral state remains the moral state. yes or no, the perpetual question, and well...
mircea_popescu: aw fuck
mircea_popescu: !!seen spyked
deedbot: 2019/12/16 09:33:35 <spyked> <-- certainly looks like a spin on greenspun's rule: any system that amasses enough complexity (for some values of "enough", at least) becomes a contender for the "operating system" label. imho emacs, wp, cltrons all fit in there.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-12-10 12:10:44 BingoBoingo: Reading the ongoing conversations in the forums and castles, I get a building suspicion that further cutting on Gentoo is going to start looking like cutting on CrystalSpace
mircea_popescu: !Qlater tell spyked yo, feedbot's unwinding the whole history of comments on trilema at me fo rsome reason, halp!
mircea_popescu: !Q later tell spyked yo, feedbot's unwinding the whole history of comments on trilema at me fo rsome reason, halp!
mircea_popescu: jaysus.
mircea_popescu: lobbes, bot ded ?
spyked: mircea_popescu: hm, from what I see it only sent the comments/new feeds since it first saw mircea_popescu offline
spyked thinks feedbot should perhaps come with a "purge" command which deletes pending notifications
hanbot: in other unexpected wins, wikipedia started redirecting my browser to "mandatory upgrade" sometime last week. of all the deprecations i've steadfastly watched pass by in my box's moat as it were, this one is by far the most satisfying.
trinque: mircea_popescu: I'm willing to adapt, and to use my blog to do so.
trinque: specifically, if you saw fit to issue a deed for #trinque , I'd happily accept
trinque: and in that spirit, part 1 of my contribution to the OS thread shall be published tonight, and so on by days until finished. maybe 4/5 parts.
BingoBoingo: In lulz at the local/international interface, local police seized some cocaine. They honestly assessed the pile at ~1 million USD using the local wholesale price. The story moved to the international press today. The BBC is assessing the value of the pile at ~1 billion USD using their local retail prices.
diana_coman: trinque: I'm looking forward to that OS-related series.
trinque: diana_coman: me too, actually! enjoying myself over here.
trinque: teaser fact: busybox is *half* the size of grub-2 by LoC
diana_coman: ahaha, maybe that's why grub-"2", lolz.
trinque: god damned bootloader being larger than an entire userland, holy hell.

trinque: and jfw, dorion_road, if you don't see the word "Gales" in there, it's because I'm trying to disabuse you of the notion that there's such thing as a "Gales" which you made, by way of sheer numbers.
trinque: and I'm not even halfway to a blinking cursor yet
trinque: ftr not saying anything about the value of the gales work, above. I think it's quite valuable, but we'll get there.
