So I checked-out that translation site - very cool.  The Blood/Crips applet - was an awesome bonus.  Did you know I also made an alphabet once? 

TY Junk -  going to check-out the above - I am starting to feel like maybe I didn't really give the problem enough thought (maybe it's because deep down, I'm a belieber :lol:)

totally nonplussed by the "terrible danger" posed by Roko's Basilisk

How well do you understand timeless decision theory?

It's a rather critical aspect of why Roko's Basilisk is considered such a dangerous line of thought.  Without that knowledge, it would seem little more than Pascal's Wager.

Without getting mired by details, the "timelessness" of TDT is here understood as the inevitability of a singularity.  Isomorphically, the existence of god, on the other, left-hand side, is the condition on the possibility of being able to choose in the first place.  Either way, you are subject to the slave-thought of linear causality.  I don't care what box you choose, just don't cut yourself with that blade :lulz:


Lucifer, you are coming across as uncharacteristically lucid. Are you sick?
Oh, positively, and it won't heal like you.

So I was looking for something interesting and was totally nonplussed by the "terrible danger" posed by Roko's Basilisk.  Essentially, it's just a re-wording of Pascal's wager:
                    God exists (G)        God does not exist (G)
Belief (B)    +∞ (infinite gain)         −1 (finite loss)
Disbelief (B)   −∞ (infinite loss)    +1 (finite gain)

Replace "God exists" with "RB will have existed".

Reverse the wager and replace RB with Flying Spag Monster.

Let go and have fun.

I think I may seen some myself recently.  Very, very small (specks of dust like) and absurdly fast red (bright) and black things.  They initially move 2-4 inches in a burst, say, up to half a cubit.  Then they float for a moment and twirl in their slip-stream, before taking off again.  Are these the fuckers of which you speak?

Okay, okay.  So I have been trying to communicate my thinking to others for the past decade, and transmission rates still hover around nought.  Mostly, I find people intentionally equivocate and confuse the point because there's nothing they don't already care to know.  The worst is when they get combative

Well yeah, what's the point of a philosophy if you don't act on it?
Think about it :lulz:

Teted, I knew there was a reason to resist my pride.

My computer may have just turned into a paperweight...

If by "equally valued and valid" you mean "valueless and irrelevant", then yes, you would be correct. And here I thought I would find people who spoke my kind of language, considering it proclaims to be about bringing people together with a philosophy that considers all things true, false, meaningless and meaningful at the same time.

Uh oh, guys, we're doing Discordia wrong.

Well duh, there is only one way to do Discordia, certainly no different perspectives could cone to light since the principia isn't vague in its ideology at all.
It's clear now how meaningless being unable to un-notify this thread becomes in light without distinction.

That's why most of the filth is contagious, or how do you think we sell those remediation contracts to off-earth markets?

C.L.I.T.:  The conservative way.

Mmmm.  So good.  I daresay, your ability to write dialog is pretty damn good.

Thank you! Someone else on PD told me that a while back and I really appreciate it.

I'm trying to get Lara's word choice just a little off, in a non-native English speaker way. Luckily from being in a Colombian family for half my life I have some experience with how it sounds.  :lulz:

I don't even know how to format dialog, please.  Lara's sentence construction was great.  One (the only) possible opportunity for further inflection I thought of was when:

"like any sane person would"

In Latin languages "sane" literally means whole, so they usually qualify the psychological condition:

"like any mentally sane person would"

Is maybe an opportunity for a funny, however it might interfere with the flow of her cadence.  I just like contributing to this thread, don't mind me. :lulz:
