Twitter cuts (#110)

There’s nothing about this tweet I don’t like.

Memes are ideas that manage their own security. In the Internet Era they get stronger every day (and mobs get weaker).

Moron bites (#21)

The CIA edition.

Best line to come out of the insanity so far:

Mass concentration and coordination of autism via the Internet will [have been a] defining aspect of humanity’s history.

Twitter cuts (#70)

This is — of course — completely appalling:

Chaos Patch (#115)

(Open thread + links)

Property maps authority. Vampiric priors (and response). NRx will be eaten. Slippery slopes. Discretion. Only a new religion can save us (and ancient Chinese signaling spirals). The weekly round, plus outliers.

Atavistic illiberalism (cites). Generational war. Geek-nerd war. Resilient inequality. Militia make waves. Filter the electorate. Alt-Left back and forth. Christianity contra capitalism? Errors of the ENR. Marcuse and his backers.

Bubble skin.

Democracy in crisis (part n). Le Pen on the death of the EU. Israel heads right. A wide-angle view of Venezuela.

Trumpenführer panic report (0, 1). Red State hands over the keys. Statistical hits and misses.

Trouble in the Donkey camp (1, 2).

Twitter mayhem, left and right. Frog plague.

Uninformed economics. Recent natural selection in humans. A vanilla case for gene-editing (relevant). The deep roots of war. Humans aren’t cockroaches (when considered indiscriminately). The real demographic problem. How to avoid antibiotic apocalypse. Darwinian meta-ethics.

Cardwell’s Law. Google with chips. Persistent robot menace, but note: “I’m aware that these kinds of forecasts have been around for at least 200 years, from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and they never came true so far. It’s basically the boy who cried wolf … But in the original story of the boy who cried wolf, in the end, the wolf actually comes …” Pan-surveillance.

Thoughts on the Chinese typewriter.

World War Zero. Excavation of the unknown. A signal in the darkness?

Of which it is said (I do not pretend to grasp more than a pitiful sliver of this): “Pepe has guided humanity since time immemorial. This is Heqet, the frog-headed Ancient Egyptian goddess, symbol of life and protector on the journey to the afterlife. She guided the ancient Egyptians who transcended normie-ism to a land of poorly drawn dick-girls and the dankest of memes. A little known fact is that while normies evolved from the famously social monkeys, those destined to browse dank memes alone in dimly-lit rooms evolved from another species who also prefers dark moist habitats, namely the frog.”

The name ‘Kek’ appears to have crossed into Cyberspace by odd coincidence (and not — originally — as a name at all). Orcish, Korean, and Turkish languages were all supposedly involved. ‘Kek’ was an encryption of ‘LOL’ within certain World of Warcraft communication channels. The Turkish ‘Topkek‘ (a cupcake brand) was a secondary coincidence. No one seems to have been invoking the chaos deities of Ancient Khem at that point.

The introduction of Pepe — a manifest frog-entity avatar — is shrouded in even greater obscurity. The memetic phenomenon was (again, apparently) convergent, or coincidental — an entirely independent frog plague (צְּפַרְדֵּעַ, Exodus 7:25–8:15).

One more coincidence: Outbreak of the ‘cuck‘ meme. (Kek is Kuk.) It’s a definite ‘barbarous name of evocation‘ in retrospect, but mostly still connected around the back. Kek, Kuk, cake, cuck, might sound like consistent croaking, but tidy cultural cladistics are difficult to identify. (A sense of ethno-religious crisis on the Alt-Right is one indispensable contextual element.)

That short Wikipedia entry is worth citing in full:

Kuk (also spelled as Kek and Keku) is the deification of the primordial concept of darkness in ancient Egyptian religion. In the Ogdoad cosmogony, his name meant darkness. As a concept, Kuk was viewed as androgynous, his female form being known as Kauket (also spelled as Keket), which is simply the female form of the word Kuk. […] Like all four dualistic concepts in the Ogdoad, Kuk’s male form was depicted as a frog, or as a frog-headed man, and the female form as a snake, or a snake-headed woman. As a symbol of darkness, Kuk also represented obscurity and the unknown, and thus chaos. Also, Kuk was seen as that which occurred before light, thus was known as the bringer-in of light. The other members of the Ogdoad are Nu and Naunet, Amun and Amaunet, Huh and Hauhet.

I’m heavily reliant on the commentariat here to sort all this out.

A statement to be preserved for the fascinated scrutiny of generations yet unborn:

I am experimentally tabooing the words “neoreaction”, “neoreactionary”, and “NRx” in this blog’s comments effective immediately. It’s emotionally charged and politicized in a way that I think potential substitutes aren’t. I got my first exposure to far-right ideas from the neoreactionaries and so historically I’ve viewed rightism through their lens and spread that to my readers, but I think that this emphasis was a mistake. Also, nobody agrees on what “neoreactionary” means, least of all self-identified neoreactionaries. If you want to talk about monarchists, call them monarchists. If you want to talk about traditionalists, call them traditionalists. If you want to talk about the far right, call it the far right. If you want to talk about HBD, call it HBD. If you want to talk about Mencius Moldbug, call him Mencius Moldbug. First infraction will be punished with a warning, second with burning eternally in the caldera of the Volcano God.

(If I followed SA’s comment threads more diligently, I’d have a better sense of the context for this. Seems like an interesting experiment in any case. It also says something about triggers — or memetic virulence — although that’s still a little blurry …)

I have to add the ‘mind-control’ tag — but it works both ways.
