carl

He stayed true to his understanding of the world even in tough times—like when his little girl asked him if he would ever get to see his dead parents again:

He considered his answer carefully. Finally, he said that there was nothing he would like more in the world than to see his mother and father again, but that he had no reason—and no evidence—to support the idea of an afterlife, so he couldn’t give in to the temptation.

'Why?'

Then he told me, very tenderly, that it can be dangerous to believe things just because you want them to be true. You can get tricked if you don’t question yourself and others, especially people in a position of authority. He told me that anything that’s truly real can stand up to scrutiny.

funny dreams

I dreamt I met shatner, that he was the guy who played picard and not kirk, (he wore the TNG captain uniform at one point), that he also starred in tron and back to the future as mcfly. He shot shit with me, made me happy, I distinctly remember the feeling of joy. We talked about how the set of tron screwed up your depth perception (we re-enacted a tronish airhockey game in tron world, both failing miserably at the game…)… It turns out his assistant, just a gorgeous woman, was a shape shifting WaterAndroid(tm)…. and then so was he. I asked the robot the meaning of life, got weird answers, and then I asked ‘what is true?’… I was trying to break him. Then I woke up.
Also at some point I hugged his old ass whitebeard half-deaf dad, who shuddered his breath like Jasmine (my old dog that shed her mortal layer)… somehow he retroactively had kissed me on the mouth and left just more beard in my mouth than I ever had on my face. This was right before the android bit, forgive the anachronism. Weird dream, but worth thinking about how I could be vindictive to a non-human who made me happy with lies. 

Oh how the children could play in the rye fields, how I could catch them before the cliff

video games

another defense for video games — vocabulary (or a time period’s infrastructrural/political mechanics, details, etc.) that isn’t otherwise understood, or clarified by context, gets elucidated by action.

….I wish

I wish you had more faults so I could learn to love those and then you could leave me and finding someone else would be easier. Babe.

The Problem with Mimetics

So when you have a mimetic device to help you remember something, you can be confident you know… however, when your instantaneous recall is wrong, but your confidence is high, you are wrong and don’t notice. =/

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck scream

FB friends that suck are good

I have a few friends on facebook that I just don’t like — they actually aggravate me with the things they value and their modus operandi. But hey, it’s food for thought, and it’s opportunity to reconsider my own values with the stark contrast
