Or Kill Me / Re: How to make a scientific "theory" (comic strip form)

Somewhere between steps 2 and 3, you confused "Science" with "Marketing within a Capitalist System".

Science is essentially steps 1 and 2 repeated endlessly.

People are social animals?  hmmm  & evolution has saddled us with some pretty big brains.  Evolution as a tool?  The brain a tool?  hmmm.  These things make sense to me.  Not sure about the part about returning to the forest tho?

Iím just visiting here.  Iíve gotten pretty comfortable with uncertainty.  I think I Love uncertainty.  Itís a useful tool.  Every day I see new things.  & yeah well some of the things might be the same things I saw yesterday but it looks different to me today.  In the light of a new day.  I also like to think about Time.  As a tool.

Sometimes, I notice what I like to call trends.  Things that seem to show up everyday, usually at the end of the day.  Some of those trends:

This place is pretty fucked up.
Is anyone alive in here?
How can I entertain myself?
What kind of experiments can I try?

Thinking about these things keeps me busy, busy, busy!  (Used to practice Bokononism & sometimes still do)

Another thing I observe, usually on a daily basis, is that I happen to like things of Nature.  Seeing Beauty there.  Looking at things closely.  Being out in it when the Weather is extreme.  The Ocean.  That kind of thing.

Not a huge fan of returning to the forest tho.  I like urban life.  Iíve also observed (living in US) that many of the worst sewers of stinking stagnation are in the places most isolated from urbanity (not sure if Iím using the right word here).  I mean, lookit the Amish enclaves?  & what about those hellholes of Xian fundamentalism?  That kind of thinking doesnít seem to lend itself to cities.

Iíve passed through places like these (stinking sewers of stagnation in the US) & I donít see anything coming from there!  The 1 thing Iíve noticed is that Peoples want OUT of those kind of places.  bbbrrr shudder bbbrrr  These kinds of places seem to be self-perpetuating not self-sustaining.   

I havenít spent all that much time in Internet communities either.  Mostly passing through.  I have noticed though, if you are inclined to do so, you can create mind-numbing communities on the Internet as well.  It might be easier to escape from those types of thought ghettos than from the geographical ones.  I really hope so.

Anyway, hope I havenít solipsised too much here or gotten off into my own tangential way of thinking as to distract from whatís been said here.  Iím new here & I really like what Iíve seen so far.  I especially appreciated the Black Iron Prison.  Thanks.  Respect.   :)

I ... I don't really know what to say about all the jazz talk in this thread. So I think I'll just smile, nod, and back away slowly.

C'mon, Berklee-boi!  Jump in, reference Ellington; or Miller.

No, no, no... you see, it was a fake Hitler, and someone ripped the head off the fake.  See?  It wasn't real.  It wouldn't make any sense at all the other way.

I get jazz theory, but I could never really improv, and reading jazz is sort of a sin.
I do like playing jazz chords under triads in rock songs though - it gives them an interesting sound.


Charles Mingus called.  He has a bone to pick with you.

Fact of the matter is I wish most people would croak where they sit. 


A show of hands... who knew it was heading in this direction from the start?

"Wouldn't it be nice if we all returned to nature?  ...Well, not all of us.  We should liquidate the majority of the human race.  Let's start with the Jews!"

Hi Downspiral!

A word of advice; lots of people come here and post a lot of "I'm so crazy, voices in my head, They Are Watching Me" kinds of stuff, so it's kind of old and not that funny or interesting, to me at least. It might rub people the wrong way.

The best way to enjoy this forum, IMO, is to be the Really Real YOU, not some pretend you who's made up for the purposes of "Being Discordian".

Welcome and enjoy!


Actually, we don't really care if you have voices in your head, provided they are saying things that are truly interesting.

Please understand we're not picking on you.  This is the standard process of vetting new ideas.


You still haven't answered the question of how to balance the production of technology needed to survive in the forest, and actually living in the forest.

and who says you will die in the forest over such minor issues?  As our species progressed we learned how to heal ourselves and deal with the issues we faced.  And that IS the beauty of todays technology.  My hubby lived in the Gila for two years with only random trips into town for supplies (lucky bastard).  He didn't want for a hot shower cos he had natural mineral hot springs.  Where he could sit and play his game boy.  Naked.  While smoking a j and whatever.


So, you're proposing that SOME people go back to the forest and live in blissful harmony, while OTHERS stay in the nasty, brutal city where they can produce and develop the technology needed for the bliss-ninny's survival?


I know which team I want to be on.







Edit to add "city".

It seems to me that these people are just lazy.  There are plenty of ways to discribe a person without using a gender-ized pronoun.

They; That Person; My Sibling; Someone; Friend; Lover; Fuck Puppet; Spag.

I used to use s/he and hir, not as ways of describing transgendered*, but as a gender neutral way of saying "they".  I soon stopped because it was pointed out to me that doing so was kind of retarded.









*Incidentally, I believe that transgenderism exists; I know more than a few humans who strongly identify with the opposite gender than they were born into.  Drag queens are a different story, but I usually call them "she" because it's fun, and they get bitchy if you don't.
