Chaos Patch (#104)

(Open thread + links)

Time horizons. Accountability (and a modest suggestion). Principles. Heartiste on the JQ (Jim comments), also highly relevant (plus response), then, for the full triad. Against direct democracy. The last straw. Finding RF too deranged to specifically link right now, but there’s lots going on there. The weekly round, in the Cathedral.

“If there’s a global emotional illness related to economic decline, my suspicion would be that it’s a form of collapse-impatience.” Heidegger’s revolutionary children (note). “… freedom, to be more powerful than terror, must be successfully protected.” American identity, also. Ideological sorting. Net-centric warfare. WN rising.

Lessons from Malaysia. Examining Egypt, and Yemen. Oh, Canada. Good and bad passports. France is stuck. A Eurabian horror story. “After nearly 60 years of European integration, we are entering the age of disintegration.” Raspail’s prophecy, and more (1, 2, 3). The Swedish diaspora. Over-stretched liberals (video).

Trumpenführer panic report (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). Analysis. The Dugin endorsement, and more (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), including black ministers from Virginia (video), and hmmm. The brown scare gets old. The lectures aren’t working (1, 2, 3). Neoconservatives head home. McArdle corner(ed 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), and other reservations. Barn-burners will be disappointed. Cascades and games (did he swerve?). Democracy did it. (“Democracy, not even once.”) Trump’s twitter operation. “There is no hope for the future of capitalist prosperity and a free society at home and world peace abroad unless the Republican Party is destroyed.” GOP suicide watch (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Did they get baby Trump yet?

The Zuck cops, plus. Sticking with Twitter.

Feminist glaciology.

Blockchained culture markets (plus). A scalable implementation of Schor’s Algorithm.

Time and black holes. Surreal trajectories. Viral anti-virus. Sexual function. Old lizards. Deep ancestry. Chimp religion? Your brain on VR. More Right science links. Viscous populations. Nootropics. Physics of space battles.

Prestige economies (and note). Computational theology. Disreputable math. An awkward Koran.

    Higher order modal logics are an interesting tool for God-bothering, but what if your tastes lie in univalent foundations? Let him that hath understanding prove the homotopy type of the beast…

    “emotional illness related to economic decline, my suspicion would be that it’s a form of collapse-impatience.” 

    if even reddit talking about ‘collapse’ then definitely ‘colapse’ trend on rise. in time of crisys societies territorialize and naturally hope that everybody behind their walls going to collapse and die. nothing new, it happens all the time. not sure if this fact alone enough to conclude anything.

    there is one book wirtten by Hsinchun Chen titled ‘Dark Web Exploring and Data Mining the Dark Side of the Web’, which describing research conducted in The University of Arizona Artificial Intelligence Lab (AI Lab) Dark Web project. that is very impressive set of tools and aproaches they have developed for mining and analyzing big data. If is there any emotional trend they can detect it, assess it and measure its business potential. of course same work can be done manually as Israeli intelligence doing it for decades.

    imo in our complex world such kind of tools and aproaches is eesential for connecting back to real life. but also there is cathegory of peope who always been disconnected and even cannot grasp that concept of ‘connecting’ outside of computer network.

    It’s also interesting how we’re all taking about the same stuff even though communication is limited to some forums and blogs, with distances between individuals. It’s interesting how converging ideas spring into existence from disparate sources.


    SVErshov Reply:

    there is no distances for mind, only intensities of metabolic processes what is matter, speed have to be the same, that is how we able to communicate. take for example life in ice form, which can have only 2-3 metabolic interactions per mullenium, that is why we cannot communicate with frozen guys.

    I like how I can get lost in this forest of links and end up two hours later, a dozen windows still open, looking through everything. It is a service to the community.

    The convergence I am seeing is a positive one. Trump brought together the underground and mainstream right, and also brought in the practical religious people, cutting out the speaking-in-tongues crowd. In Europe, the same thing has happened with brave leaders like Farage.

    I still blame Houellebecq and Celine for all of this, but it has been a long time coming. Fred Nietzsche somewhere is smiling and enjoying a good cigar, I hope.

    I have articles on SSRN, which should give you an idea of how mush of a joke the site is. SSRN has no peer review or even editorial review. You can post anything up there, and it’s really hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Economically, Europe (except Eastern Europe) has been circling the drain since 2008, and will likely collapse economically and socially before America does. It just keep getting worse and worse there. But same for Brasil and many other countries.

    Re: Principles

    The key to “no friends to the left, no enemies to the right” is that it shouldn’t be taken too literally. The point is an ideological one. A rightist should only attack leftist principles and their perversions; he should never attack and signal against rightist principles, even (especially) their perversions (unless those perversions are of a leftist tilt). In general: you want extremists on your right to draw the bulk of intellectual fire of your enemies, but you shouldn’t signal against them. Just leave them be.

    Space battles link was really good, especially considering the host’s baseline.

    Researchers demonstrate that particles at the quantum level can in fact be seen as having real-trajectories, rather than just the probabilistic smears that the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics suggests.

    Hot piss. If this isn’t journalistic ‘license’ like the Higgs nonsense, then u dun fuked up, sons of Planck.

    It’s consistent with my theory of what’s ‘really’ going on out there, which is that wavicles are just waves. The wave can of course interfere with itself. However, it interacts stoichiometrically, as per quantization, which is in turn due to the no-infinities principle.

    My theory that time is the independent variable for the functions that describe/embody physics has taken no hits. That time article is frankly terrible with a side of bad. Reiterates known, discredited theories, and does so awkwardly. Also a fine example of secular anti-consciousness.

    If it was rigorous and accurate it wouldn’t be journalism.


    Alrenous Reply:

    Yes. My only hope is the journalist made a mistake and wrote something good.

    No enemies to the right, no friends to the left is a simple inversion of leftist principle, and my observation is that it fails to translate well to the right. We are not a holiness spiral.

    This is a good observation. A generalization worth remembering states: reversed stupidity is not intelligence.


    SVErshov Reply:

    stupidity is asways stupidity

    ‘There must be as many kinds of ig­ norance as of knowledge—perhaps more, given how scant is our knowledge compared to the vastness of our ignorance. And though distinctions such as these are somewhat arbitrary, I shall make three to begin the discussion: ignorance as native state (or resource), ignorance as lost realm (or selective choice), and ignorance as a deliberately engineered and strategic ploy (or active construct). ‘

    I like Doctorow’s article. What really killed the concept of equality or egalitarianism for me is the realization that people will always strive for inequal prestige/status/power, more wealth equality just means more of some other kind inequality. Wealth is merely one of the ladders.

    And actually a slowly losing ladder. I have noticed the US media is simply not talking about luxury cars anymore. They aren’t really interested in the Rolls or the Ferrari anymore. it’s the Prius and the Tesla. A car that advertises nothing but riches is almost beginning to feel like a relic of old times now. Those looong dachshund style limos (Lincoln?) that I used to like in the old American movies, which used to advertise so much status in 1960 or so, are today increasingly used, in Europe too, as a rent-a-limo for Saturday night for young people for partying. And those young people tend to look a lot like white thrash, to be fair. We got to the point where such direct wealth-only signals work only in the crasser lower-class.

    And what is even funnier is how geographic it is. I don’t think Russia will switch to this low-statusing of wealth signals anytime soon. So, BMW in Bavaria, who always think in a global market, came up with a car that is electric-hybrid enough for US-type intellectual elites but looks rich and aggressive enough for Russian-style more wealth oriented and masculine elites: behold the i8 model. Germans are pretty good at playing for both types of audiences, probably because both kinds of cultures affect them. So that is roughly where the geographic dividing line is.

    Moldbergs greatest trick was not simply laying the blame for modernity at the feet of the Anglo, but in causing the anglo-saxon to be equivocated with puritanism in general. The church of the anglo, in case anyone forgot, is *Anglican*, which is… pretty much catholicism in all but name. And as we all know, [url=]Anglicans are the master race[/URL] (and more specifically, lowland Scots are the master race).

    The irony is, protestantism, and the reformation in general, is overwhelmingly a *continental* phenomena (john calvin, martin luther, etc), and the puritans an abberation derived thereof. To our eternal regret, they managed to avoid being eradicated like the heretics they are by hiving of to the new world, where thanks to the founder effect gave rise to a new misbegotten subspecies that has plagued the other clades inhabiting america to this day.
