it prolly has something to do with motivation
or how they approach things


but im not really sure




it has nothing to do with what they 'know' or what their preferences are


and it has not much (if anything) to do with the PD




just a hunch

you dont have to worry about a thing

just upload the right code and you will be laughing



there aint a problem that cant be fixed

Or Kill Me / We Start Where You Stopped
« on: March 16, 2007, 06:57:42 pm »
you read everything you needed to read in the title



when you back off, we press on


and then we dont even judge you



we do what we do with style and finesse
and in comparison to you it is like a cheetah compared to a snail in terms of speed

some people make the point that the world needs snails - which is true


so maybe we should be thanking those snails for their slowness that allows us to be the dynamic, shape-shifting, ADD-fueled icons that you see are responsible for the content on these forums


who knew so much could be packed into a font on a monitor?

trail it back

your internet browser
your CPU
your data port
your internet service provider
all the way back to us on the other end pounding keys with authority


godzilla with a laptop


huge people


you hear the sound of thunder when finger touches keyboard



the type of people that do things that matter IN A UNIVERSE WHERE NOTHING MATTERS


hit rewind if you didnt get it




the advanced technology:
the egos are detachable - like any good tool


imagine the farmer with a shovel glued to his arms
or a carpenter with his hammers attached to his hand


it doesnt make sense to hold so tightly to your tools


so we dont




we have been wrong so many times that we have been given the privilege of being right on occasion
(with the plot twist of never knowing when those occasions are)


to know the virtue of being bad IN A GOOD WAY
instead of being good in a bad way



we smell bullshit when it is still in the bull

and the bull gets 50 posts to get it out of its system




we are so good at what we do that we have to make a conscious attempt at not congratulating ourselves at how good we are at everything

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Hagakure - BIP
« on: March 13, 2007, 04:29:31 pm »
how does this quote fit into the scheme of things?

Hagakure:

Quote
It is better to live doing the things that you like. It is foolish to live within this dream of a world seeing unpleasantness and doing only things that you do not like. But it is important never to tell this to young people as it is something that would be harmful if incorrectly understood.
Personally, I like to sleep. And I intend to appropriately confine myself more and more to my living quarters and pass my life away sleeping.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / mouths and money
« on: March 05, 2007, 08:37:45 pm »
can this rag-tag non-committal group of individuals come up with a way to consistently put together media that is more engaging than anything that is currently available?

if yes
then we should do so

if no
then we should prolly re-think a few things


the media and entertainment landscape is still wide open


the tools are at our fingertips
and the creativity is there...

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Proposal - Spring - Summer '07
« on: March 03, 2007, 05:40:08 pm »
in reviewing the recent events, here is a proposal:

abandon BIP evangelism in favor of a focus on the area where we all seem to merge at:

Law of Fives


Law of Fives is directly from PD
it merges the barstool with the abstract

everything becomes pertinent


as far as the audience goes:

i motion that we abandon the 'Think for Yourself' phrase/nonsense
- clearly it is seen as a phrase that suggests evengelicalism or evangelicism (evangelism?)



bring the Law of Fives to peoples attention, and our audience suddenly becomes very broad, and the writing becomes very pertinent

- we immediately become appealing to conspiracy theorists who are trying to 'piece everything together'
- there is appeal to occultists who are prakticing ckhaos mahdgjickque
- pragmatists have something tangible that they can put to use (mnemonics)
- esoterists have something they can experiment and play with


instead of preaching 'Think for Yourself' - we could provide examples of where this 'free thought' actually exists - where/how people get manipulated

and since we are from everywhere and are (collectively) involved in absolutely everything, exposing the law of fives could have some cross-over appeal


this is the only circumstance where 000's deconstruction of how 2+3=5 would make sense proceeding or following a Rev Rog rant


in brief:

my proposal is this -
lets keep on discussing this rift between the abstract and the practical

meanwhile
firing away at everything under this 'Law of Fives' umbrella



also - to come up with a better phrase than 'Law of Fives' that captures the essence behind 'the more i look for it, the more i see it manifest'


this could tie Prof Cram's latest effort with what Vex was talking about
could also tie Net's latest artworks into this plus the Durden rants, plus the latest discussions on Chaos theory as well as Cain's conspiracy work - etc, etc, etc



desired result:
instead of having people being told to 'Think for Yourself' -
provide context, warnings, benefits, and applications


this is all fresh and unpolished right now...

Literate Chaotic / Law of Fives - Advanced Lesson
« on: February 25, 2007, 08:38:43 pm »


this treads the line between insanity and genius

i have to rummage thru the shit to provide the other piece of evidence that would encourage you to consider the above



^^^those are some scans / highlights from the Book of the Subgenius in case anybody doesnt recognize it

a interesting read:

http://www.maybelogic.org/stangcrs.htm

these dudes put in a lot of work - or at least it seems that way as they deconstruct it in hindsight

this part is the LAIL (from week 7 of the course):

Quote
7 The Kooks & The Drawbacks

The Ongoing Child Custody Case. People Who Think They're Jesus or "Bob." SubGenius kooks. Hilarious history of those who have taken The Church of the SubGenius completely seriously: potential publishers, the Secret Service, hundreds of Bobbies, Messiah Complex sufferers, the Cleveland Police Dept., two millionaires, the FBI, many UFO contactees, NPR, the Mayor of Cambridge, etc.)


the fact that a system can even be deconstructed like this says a lot

Or Kill Me / I can edit the title of this thread
« on: February 22, 2007, 07:30:34 pm »
Your preferences don't matter anymore.

If you don't connect it all, then you're disconnected.

It doesn't matter what you want to hear about.

It doesn't matter what your hunch is.

It doesn't matter if it doesn't make sense to you.

It's going on regardless.


"What's going on?"

Yeah it would be nice to have a clear, concise answer to that question.

Whatever it is, if you don't feel that it pertains to you directly, then it's only a matter of time before you realize that it pertains to you directly.


Why is it so perplexing to consider that some people are motivated by a perceived need?
Rather than the overwhelming tendency for people to think that others are only motivated by whimsy.

Is it because you are motivated by whimsy?

Do you have it too easy?

Not coughing up any blood yet, but you foresee it coming.

And it makes you squirm.


Yeah its funny now, but you foresee a point beyond which it may not be funny anymore.


Where you are going, there are no jokes.


The things you laugh at now - you can only laugh at them because you are still relatively young and able-bodied.

Pliable.
Malleable.
Gumby.


You bend back in shape without effort.
You can digest poison because they installed a manufacturing plant in your guts.

The smoke stacks lead to your brain.

And you poison yourself.
Slowly.

Sure - others help.
But ultimately, you do it to yourself.


"That's the way we were made."
A-hyuck


Sure it was.

Natural as a twinkie.


It would be nice to be able to write things off without due process.

It would make things a lot easier.

But -
everybody gets exposed eventually.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Doc's Thread
« on: February 16, 2007, 02:45:31 am »
state in clear words what your specific questions are


so far, i gather this much:

you: is there any mysterious use for 'occult'?
me: no

you: is there flaws in science?
me: yes


you arent gonna catch any hate from me
and the admin here is good enough to handle business if you expose yourself as troll


me and Rev Rog have had enuf good builds to be on good terms
we are at least on the same page that stagnation is the wrong approach to things


if you are interested enuf, ill refer you to some threads

most of the stuff here is abstract and hypothetical but the aim is at being more effective in practical persuits

no need to fuck up a bunch of threads if you got specific questions that require back-tracking
