Moe Philosophy
« on: July 21, 2016, 09:40:14 pm »
Eat your fresh .pdf ! Oops, felt wrong when I said it.

Whatever : Here is Moe Philosophy.

It's probably among the most ordered and greyfaced book ever made by people that would call themselves ę a Discordian Ľ :|.
It's a book about a mix of Spinoza's philosophy (especially Ethics), some Discordian concepts, and the idea of Moe. Among other things.
It's divided in plateaux I mistakenly call chapters (a concept from some writer who wanted an alternative way of organizing a book) but function as such.

I would have liked having more ideas for illustrations to make for lighter reading. Good word-munching~ !

I'll think of perusing the Bring and Brag and Propaganda fora, for the fourth edition. *Goes to sleep*

I had a quick read through it, and it looks interesting, so far.  I'll read it more thoroughly later.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Not being familiar with Spinoza, Iím reading The Ethics prior to delving more deeply into your book.

The Ethics is a bit of a tough read, but Iím finding I do like Spinozaís writing style. Iíve completed ďPART I. CONCERNING GODĒ, so far.

This is going to take longer than I thought.

Moe as the japanese adjective signifying blooming (or verb signifying burning). Not the Simpsons character.
Wikipedia has a biased definition of it, as the word slowly became a suffix to mean passion and/or a word to describe what TvTropes calls PSL (attraction to fictional characters).
Applied to characters, it means that they have defects which make them cute and endearing. The book is based on a generalization of the concept (being tolerant to/or appreciating defects), putting it in a 2x2 table alongside love (appreciating qualities), hate (disappreciating defects) and jealousy (disappreciating qualities).

Oh, so the Hentai shit involving ridiculously huge tits.  That's what I was afraid you were talking about.

Gotcha. 

Bailing now.

Thanks, but not really.

Iíve studies enough math and physics to not be put off by the writing style. And, Iíve read quite a bit of Carl Gustav Jung. As he made references to Spinoza in some of his works, the subject matter is not entirely new to me. And besides, itís been raining just about every day here for the past two weeks, so Iíve had plenty of time on my hands.

As of right now, Iím well into ďPart IV: Of Human Bondage, or the Strength of Emotions.Ē I should wrap that up soon, and then Iíll give your book a solid read.

It had slipped my mind prior to this edit of my earlier post, but way, way back in my days at ďUniĒ, as the British like to say, I had taken a course called ďIntroduction to Logic.Ē  So, Spinozaís near continuous use of definitions, propositions, etc., in The Ethics is not new to me. (Iím reading an English translation entitled The Ethics. However, Iíve also seen English versions simply entitled Ethics.)
