Mass made, mass marketed self indulging garbage that has no intention of staying in the readers mind longer than a subway ride from A to B. Produced for the now, not for the future. The pinnacle of consumerism. Fast, cheap and innocent in the eyes of the tired modern man.
Whenever I try to conceptualize purely nothing, absolute zero, nada, zilch, I'm talking goose egg, nil -- not a single thing. My mind always reverts to visualizations of an empty void. Space is a noun, it's a thing, that's the issue. So pure nothing cannot be a spatial vacuum, as a vacuum is a physical … Continue reading What is nothing?
IQ doesn't measure overarching intelligence, it measures how well the underlying subsystems can perform certain low level tasks. Having good neurological machinery (in the readily testable functional areas) does not mean the state of the overall system is such that they're coordinated, communicate, and ultimately used properly. You can have a very, very, poor system … Continue reading What Is IQ?
A cartridge in it's most basic form is just a convenient way to plug a ROM chip into the CPU of a console. ROM is very simple. You give ROM a number called an "address", and it returns a number that is the "data" at that address.

What it's going to look like, what I'll be able to do and say to accept a universal living wage if things go well, or perhaps everything is going to collapse for real this time. We'll know pretty soon. I'm wondering if soon is within my own lifetime or not. 20 years distant if it … Continue reading The Future
A man gets hired for his first summer internship to do cost analysis, but he gets there and no one talks to him at all. No one tells him what to do or how to start working. He shitposts on a mongolian throat singing board all day every day while collecting his pay check and … Continue reading I’ll just leave this here
When cloning becomes a thing, do you think it will be illegal to make a clone of yourself with some gene editing, such as crispr, to change an X chromosome to Y or vice versa and fuck it? Would that be abuse, or would it be okay since you own your genetic material and your … Continue reading Loose thought
Lately, when people speak English, sometimes the corresponding kanji or vocab card from Anki flies out of their mouth. I can't tell if it's due to the ridiculous amount of time I've spent on flashcards, the fact that I'm currently sleep deprived from changing into an "Everyman sleep schedule," or if I'm just nutso. Might … Continue reading Studies and Sleep balance
