 Washington Post (or, more recently, something also on NyT re: Dura-Trumps)
Quote
President Trump reportedly eschews exercise because he believes it drains the body’s “finite” energy resources, but experts say this argument is flawed because the human body actually becomes stronger with exercise.

I got this one. See, his Chinese comrades probably tried to splain him the concept of Yin, the female principle, which TCM considers finite & non-renewable. That Trump then uniquely informed his understanding with only the concept of Yin should come as no surprise. Trump clearly has negligible Yang.

Principia Discussion / Re: is Discordianism alt right? I'm confused

Despite attempt to not argue with idiocy of OP's query, I must interject. However vast the generosity of Discordia may be, this always includes a level understanding of the PNC. That makes the "alternative" right something also at odds with itself.

Now, please to resolve inconsistencies elsewhere.

BUMP!

That's cool. Doing some yard-work too. Was maybe going to use the chicken-wire to try and keep-out revenant moles. Looking forward to pics.

This ASMR stuff should be approached with extreme prejudice. It's part of an ancient practice called Carezza, often practiced together with the waka-waka. Above my pay-grade, so I don't mess with it.

The jealousy that angels feel for humans manifests the original sin that fractures their souls, when they are in proximity. It is not directly felt by humans in the moment that this fractal fissuring occurs, only the presaging hint on a synthetically sweet scent tricks the senses into artificially nostalgic feelings. "There's a lesson in that. If you ever meet someone who has known an angel, you should run away from her as fast as you can." (Quoted text from a letter Cantor's relative wrote to Kafka)

I thought this thread was for fiction :fnord:
Truth and fiction have been known to share facts in common  :oops:

A person who would normally be a minor character in any typical story spontaneously develops extrasensory awareness of where the camera is pointing (which over the course of the story develops, with intense training, into the ability to, for short periods of intense concentration, identify the nature of *all* non-diagetic elements of the film), and uses this to take control of the narrative.

Or so he thinks. Turns out production studios devise creative forms of punishment for people unable to pay damages for diverse copyright infringements. It's not ESP, those apparently non-diagetic elements are taken from surveillance of perp.-spectator identifying with minor character because said elements have actually been taken from his life for compensation: to serve development of story in lieu of impossible monetary payment.

Anticipating how the singularity will categorically exterminate all humans, a rogue team of warriors decides to disguise itself as androids in order to avoid detection. They model themselves after characters of the TV series Captain Power, retconing the narrative to make believe that it was originally aired as a long-form piece of embedded reportage. Not only can the AI not recognize these apparently "transitional" humans, it also fails to notice how preposterously campy the whole thing is, as long as everyone stays in character.

Meanwhilez, on ze homecamp, Herr doktor Ratzenkraut maintains that my attempts to bury sleepers over a couple of dead-men perfectly illustrates the vanity of my denial, w.r.t. extending the zombie-retaining wall.  Ha-ha, I say :lulz:

Or Kill Me / Re: You're not conscious
« on: April 25, 2017, 02:56:56 am »
If you constantly reflect and force awareness of a specific area of your mind (Trigger a specific neural network) when exposed to a specific consciousness alarm (Or unusual stimulus), you can cause that reflection to happen automatically, almost in the background. In other words, you can automate that reflection/analysis so that you don't necessarily have to be conscious for it. The subconscious can take over that particular mental activity in the future.


This is something they deal with later in the gurdjieff work. There's this idea of an "instinctive center", our habit engine. I think Gurdjieff and Ouspensky describe ways to hack it... the goal is to build shocks, mindfulness, into your habits.

The exercise I'm doing this week is to be mindful every time I open a door.

I haven't succeeded even once so far lol





the comparison between lucid dreaming "reality checks" and developing a habit of consciousness is apt



Okay, so I just don't get the lucid dreaming thing.  Maybe I'm a light sleeper, running on some kind of deficit, I don't know. When I think about analysis, as taking-apart, the discursive process requires discerning separate determinations. How is it logically possible to perform this operation subconsciously, without a ground of recognition that is nescesary for reason to operate?

Principia Discussion / Re: Kicking the Paranoia Trip
« on: April 24, 2017, 07:19:48 am »
The only mahjgickque I need is the realization that, even if They are out to get me, they have had a half a century do try it and have not succeeded.  So either they aren't really out to get me, or they're so incompetent that they may as well not be.

On a social level, I just recognize that a friend is just someone who has not yet had sufficient motivation to fuck you over.  That's not paranoia, because paranoia is a state of delusion, and the fact is that everyone has their price.

That first part is both the reason I can sleep at all and also why I factor "police interfering" into travel of any significant distance. It's pleasant when it's not needed but I'm pretty accustomed to it now.

It's like it must feel to know how much more than cost the compromised are worth.
