The Me that Watches, having read this post, suggests that considering it to be a separate entity is a fundamentally flawed viewpoint.  But I'm too sleep-deprived to work through that.

Sometimes I feel I must sleep-deprive myself just to take the edge off.
So that that great lathe can't so closely carve my flesh from bone.
That it be forever interrupted rest of this sentence incomplete
Cleaved from the memory of it's sin
    &      lost without confession's bite
Strung together like a roll of freshly sliced and strangled meat

oOf course The Other will not let me sleep against its point
    &.     Pierce the reason of its being
LayeRED before me in concentric rings of thought dismantled
As IT sucks the marrow of my soul from whence it came
Decorated in the skin from animals of old and those unborn still
Becoming the silence that whistles through my empty skull.

At this point, I'd like to note that one of my motivations in posting this thread was to mock Elon Musk.

One in Billions Chance Reality Not a Simulation
Ah, yes. Well, my sentient robot overlord calculated that the chances of his sticking to that scenario are identical: "One in Billions."

Konstantin Stanislavsky discovered to have been foremost Russian mind-control expert whose master plan was internal subversion and undermining of US propaganda complex. He continues to live on as humuncular horse whisperer of American state actors.

Just today I wondered how great it would be to have a "Higher-Shelf" in the fridge.

And then, it was right there. 8)

You could arrange preservation/stagnation opposite creation/destruction, but somehow splitting stasis into two elements feels like cheating, since they're just two ways of viewing what is basically the same thing.  So that leaves me at creative/destructive/static vs. ordered/disordered/???.

If you divide the static into the preserved and the stagnating, you can also divide the dynamic into development and disruption (which often go hand in hand, too). But where are we going with this?
How about the ADSR envelope of subtractive synthesis. It describes the stages, shape, or outline of change over time. Attack, the amount of time "slope", or velocity at which signal reaches maximum amplitude; Delay, how long it maintains peak; Sustain, the level maintained after peak; and Release, how long it takes to fade? Because, what was this about again?

Whattup, buttlords and buttladies, it's ya boy Cramulus, back with my usual nerd shit.

I found out about this magazine called Psychedelic Review, began by the heady cats at the Harvard Psilocybin Research Project. It's a really interesting time capsule, a tour of mid-60s 'tune in, turn on, drop out' subculture and wackadoo spirituality.

As soon as I saw the cover of this thing, I wanted to read it cover to cover. (the Gurdjieff piece and the Rene Daumal essay tip the scales for me) And thank Gawdess we live in a time when we can, immediately. Or at the very least take a peek, read a few paragraphs, then get distracted by something else. It feels very dated, but still retains a lot of its original potency.

MAPS has most of this magazine archived: https://maps.org/research-archive/psychedelicreview/
I'm v. excited about this, also looking forward to https://movingart.com/fantastic-fungi/  :)
I think the mushrooms waited a long time for these kinds of treatments
Much gratitude all around

I am so down for this!

I mean Legion kinda already feels to me like a pretty awesome TV adaptation of the invisibles, but to actually get to see those characters brought to life will be super cool.

Also, I like how the metafictional context of the story gains new depth with a live action mainstream version of the hypersigil  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

 Agency recruitment firm taps Ray Kurzweil for his "Things to do in Denver when your Dead" technology. New applicants are at all time low so agency decides to trick new members into joining family. Parents of potential members are kidnapped and ran through Singularity University in order to train replicant AI's to mimic their behavior. Once they become practically indistinguishable, parents are placed on ice and the replicant AIs take over communications with target children. Applicants do not realize that they are then slowly transitioning into a new kind of family. This is done mainly to minimize psychological shock to new snowflake generation of spies, or SV employees for that matter.
