The denizens of a simulated reality create a simulated reality of their own. This threatens to overload the computer on which the first simulated reality runs
Meltdown from overload results in supernova as all negative energy-density trapped in quantum bits first explodes, then curves back on itself becoming first information-based black hole.  Surface of event horizon houses monstrous synthesis of reality, developing inside the product of two nested simulations.  Inhabitants of "realty" quickly forget there was was a difference between fiction and fact.

I wonder if sales of Hagakure are soaring in wake of season 2 of True Detective, much like season one prompted purchases of The King in Yellow?  It was pretty prominently displayed in episode one in Ani Bezzerides' home, alongside a less prominent copy of A Book of Five Rings and some what look like some Fairbairn and Sykes knife-fighting manuals.

Well tough luck poseurs, my samurai killer manuals are well over a decade old. My knifefighting manuals too, though I only keep digitized copies of those nowadays.

Had been thinking about episode, and I call foul if anyone uses a wakizashi.

And it is the contract that worries me, because the commitment only dances around the notion of informed consent.

Where do you get that idea?

The potential loss is difficult to grasp for most males aged 18-28, I think, from personal experience.  I don't consider myself entirely unreasonable and yet still was susceptible to suggestion.

If I may allow mself to imagine what it feels like, I'd think the 'draft' at first was breezy, like the invitation of an open door, slowly turning into a massive undertow.

This kind of training may be good but the end result is something of a complex beast.  The only way I know to kill it is not to serve it.

I have a feeling you may have a better grasp on the subject, so I wouldn't be opposed to conversation, it's your thread?

Well, we certainly can't allow people to make decisions before they're 70.
Okay, what if we actually presented them with a choice, instead of pretending that war is the answer?

[I'm not saying the problem is easy]

Www.truthforhumanity.com -  generates eye-blistering cacophony of all things stylistically awful found on web in key of a search string.  A funny visual assault weapon, of sorts.

Goodie-goodie gumdrops, no.  Although they did offer me some boba tea.

And it is the contract that worries me, because the commitment only dances around the notion of informed consent. I'd argue the stipulation of a choice being made is null if a decision was intentionally misinformed and misdirected, which it is. Second, I'd argue  the validity of that contract on the ground that given the privilege afforded elsewhere, it's also not even really a choice if joining is the only way to get an education.  I think coercion is a more appropriate designation than contract, and that pisses me off.

Indeed, and even more so that it continues to work, so, transparently.

Alternative Conflicts.

Yes we have indeed been contacted by aliens intent on serving us.  Good will notwithstanding, yes, to rip off The Twilight Zone, what they mean is to serve us in a mobile interstellar equivalent of a food-truck, to other alien gourmands in search of exotic delicacies.  Now, in the fashion of consuming other similarly offal things, pun intended, sometimes taste is sacrificed to the gods of effect.  This results in a premium placed on particular parts of the human organism.

While certain cretins can be fooled into consuming shameful organs, the real human treat is in the double P's, or pineal and pituitary.  Now, much like our own beef consumption, some meat is premium because of how it was, er, treated.  Think Kobe, free range, pasture fed or whatever.  Again, although humans regard this a matter of taste, aliens are more concerned with effects.

Turns out, for them, prime human cuts contain high levels of endogenous peptide-amines.  They trip-out on farm-raised norepinephrine and DMT, not to mention all those other endorphins, to round off the edges.

That's why there is a war on drugs, to prevent receptor up regulation and stop our being decimated by alien gastronomic tourism.

Fuck, I think I used that trope already.

Lucifer wasn't an angel, just some king who thought he was awesome and Isaiah's author was mocking him for being dead.
That must provide a key to the irony of his story.  I mean, if he was mocked for having fallen, then his rising again in the morning must have been quite confusing.

This of course applies to the main PUA/MRA(?) movement, however may also extend to military recruitment tactics, etc, I think.  (over/out)

Were you ever in the military?  Because there is precisely jack and shit in common with PUA/MRA "recruitment" and military recruitment.
The similarity I noticed was both sell techniques that purport to obtain the enabling conditions of freedom, a bait that is then switched for bondage.  The 'will to power' is the exploit used, and it works through misdirection.  Unless treating each other as territory to be conquered is really our thing, I'd say I have to agree with my original sentiment, yes, the similarity spans from intention, to method, and results.  Also, they are both generally evil, and I don't allow myself to say that often.  These are not cases in which exceptions prove the rule, not at all.

Regrettably, I also am connected, by only two uncomfortably close degrees, to the guy that started the whole PUA thing, the guy that com truse  played in magnolia.  Incidentally, did you know that Top Gun was the Navy's number 1 recruitment tool, ever?  Not even funny.

That, and Sk@lia's "Pure applesauce" to Affordable Care, those are some of my favorites.  I forget how amusing the dark-side's death throes can be.  :lulz:

This is my second attempt at this thread, I can see a thought trying to form, and blame my lack of focus on sleep deprivation, anyways...

I was trying to figure how it makes economic sense to feed any "miserable" segment of the population a toxic ideology.  Then it dawned on me:  The system sold to empower individuals does so at the expense of alienation and conflict, which, through cognitive dissonance, is neglected in favor of reinforcing the misconception of having thereby obtained what one really wants (yay freedom!).  This difference yolks said population to a perpetual (re)production of surplus labour, where every attempt at self-determination is predetermined to reinforce the machinery of disenfranchisement, while avoiding detection as such.

I have not had any sleep in days, and last night my significant other's dog bit me on the eye-brow.  See what I mean...

Maybe the dog got tired of your sonambulistic Parmedian ramblings and wanted to put an end to you?

I know, so ironic, right?  Although I fear it may be that he misunderstands his position in the master bedroom, and so on.

[edit: *he responds with an involuntarily supercilious look*=]
