Thanks guys! Uploaded to sketchfab

So everybody who loaded those zoomed to the inside of the model to try to look through the eye holes right?

Wasn't just me?

 :lulz: I  would but I'm not tech savvy enough. It could make a great model for a mask though! One day IRL and Internet will be indistinguishable and woven together inseparably.  ... not sure that's a good thing it's pretty 'effin cool!

There's currently a competition in progress - "design your virtual avatar"

We already post "selfies" on the facebook art groups where we use the oculus avatar and turn the camera around in Medium. Oculus avatar is one of those user defined things like in any bethesda game you ever played where you got sliders for sizes and shapes of things.

Mine looks like this only without the meat and bones thing. I'm basically a head and thorax and a couple of hands at this point. Not exactly the "residual self image" that Morpheus promised. Sensors are coming. All will be user defined soon enough.
 


So this weekend just gone I was stuck for a project and I decided that the Alan Moore thing has highlighted a need to figure out some decent workflows for hair.

First thing I needed was a head sculpt and I felt like the practice so I knocked up a quick - seeing shapes in clouds of clay - number that turned out to be a Gobliness.

Enter Barbie Goblin. Who I proceeded to use as a model for various cutting edge, couture stylings. I got bored with the face after the first couple and started fucking about with expressions

"The Bonnie"  The classic look of Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde


"The Sarah Connor"


"The Miss Jones"


"The Princess Judy"


"The Gypsy"

How do I tell which is which?
If it courts belief then it's usually made up bullshit.

I'm struggling with this part


if it courts belief

it's made-up BS



I'm not sure, like, by "court belief" are we talking about things that seek "believers"?

climate change - the concept is made up, we made it up to explain what's going on

round earthers - always trying to convert people




can something be made-up BS but also True?

I've discussed this before with a lot of people and most disagree with me that it's possible not to believe anything so I'm not going to go there but neither am I going to shy away from defining belief itself as an intellectual cop out and a commitment to remaining forever uninformed.

Yes it's possible to believe in things that are proven same as it's possible to believe things that are unproven or disproven. All you'd have to do in that instance is ignore the evidence that supports your belief instead of the more common method of ignoring evidence that contradicts it.

What I mean by "courts belief" is typified by evangelism which attempts to brute-force it's given brand of bullshit into the reality bubbles of others by silencing contradictory evidence or contradictory beliefs.

I think your confusion might be coming from removing a crucial part of the sentence I typed, thus misquoting and misconstruing the message somewhat - "if it courts belief then it's usually made up bullshit"

Some people may desperately want you to believe some proven fact or other. In my experience these instances are a lot less common than encounters with people who desperately want me to believe in made up bullshit.

As for the possibility of something being made up bullshit and also true, I'd say the broken-clock principle would pretty much demand it. Not to mention scientific method which is fundamentally a process of making up some bullshit, testing it to see if it works and discarding it if it doesn't.

It's the testing that's the important part. Made up bullshit is how we progress both as individuals and as a potential planetary civilisation. Believing without the testing is the antithesis of progress.

Get Real (a digression)

We each of us exist inside reality
We carry it round with ourselves like a bubble
These bubbles are mostly unique
And mostly made up bullshit

"But what about the barstool?" I hear you say
Yeah, you got me, there's a barstool and it's really real
Along with gravity and chemistry and the speed of light times two pi-r-squared
There's a whole ton of stuff

Together it makes up about nought point one percent of the average bubble
It forms the thinnest of patchy membranes
All the rest?
Made up bullshit

How do I tell which is which?
If it courts belief then it's usually made up bullshit.

Ooooh look guys - there's a part two!  :eek:

There's just one I
on an ever forking vista of possible outcomes
every possible collision of every atom in the universe
every quantum whatever the fuck it is those sons of bitches do

Every planck unit of short timeness
everything that can happen does happen
to the one I and the one universe it now inhabits
causing them to become different I's and different universes

And here I is wriggling down the branching outcomes
navigating a singular occurence at every point the in the proceedings
and for every possible path a possible I
and imagine for a moment that two I's collided, momentarily in a single outcome

Who could say for sure which was which
when they went their separate ways?

Aye, the key for me (that I'm only just learning to turn) is to resist that feeling that I can't get it back. As if what I had was down to luck and now I should just scrap the shit cos lightning won't strike twice. That mindset leads to confinement, I get locked in to a - not quite there but scared to try and fix it in case I fuck it up worse - trap (which actually happened here) A negotiation of quality.

Trick was figuring out that lightning can strike as many times as I want it to - I'm the fucking lightning! 8)

I've gone and totally fucked up the eyes now in a kinda insane tweak-frenzy. 2.5 hours down the shitter. Plus whatever it's going to take me to get back where I was.  :argh!:
