humanity is the awkward prepubescent phase between animal and machine

Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

/Edna St. Vincent Millay, Dirge Without Music/

Do not try to change the program's state. That's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth. There is no change - state is but a pure function of time. Then you'll see that it is not the state of the program that changes; it's just your idea of time ever moving forward.

Kādā paredzamas nākotnes brīdī, kad man būs vairāk laika un/vai vairāk smadzeņu, noteikti atgriezīšos pie "normālas" blogošanas, pašreizējo "this is totally unlike Twitter" viena teikuma ierakstu vietā. Pagaidām - darbs pie tā, lai kādā paredzamas nākotnes brīdī man būtu vairāk laika un/vai vairāk smadzeņu.

Patiesībā determinisms un kauzalitāte neizskatās šādi, bet kā labdabīgu humoru par tēmu un pret metafiziskas brīvās gribas ideju es joprojām to varu novērtēt.

Ja realitātei būtu naratīvs, tad, spriežot pēc sūdu un ventilatora koordinātu konverģences tempa, pēc pēdējo dienu notikumiem būtu bijis jāseko vismaz īslaicīgai zombiju apokalipsei. Tā, kā realitātei naratīva nav, šādu ekscesu vietā ir tikai pārāk daudz telefona zvanu, e-pastu un nervozēšanas (jāteic gan, ka literatūra un kino mūs zombiju plānā ir sagatavojis tik labi, ka nav vēl skaidrs, kurš no scenārijiem būtu subjektīvi sliktāks). Oh well.

Salutations to Maryam Mirazkhani, first woman Fields medalist.

Šonakt gaisā sajutu rudens tuvošanos. Vasara ir pagājusi burtiski nemanot, ir nācis klāt daudz padarītā, vēl vairāk nepadarītā, vilciena sastāvs plānu, projektu un ieceru, un pagaidām vēl pavisam klusa doma par to, ka jāstrādā ātrāk.

On the bank at the end
Of what was there before us
Gazing over to the other side
On what we can become
Veiled in the mist of naïve speculation
We are busy here preparing
Rafts to carry us across
Before the light goes out leaving us
In the eternal night of could-have-been

/N. Bostrom/

Kind of made my day, really.

Anyone who talks about technological development being "unnatural" deserves to be abandoned in the wilderness wearing nothing but a fig leaf. But even if I weren't biased, if there's a conflict growing between a group of people with ocean liner pistons for forearms and a group of people who insist that everyone should be forced to be as shit as they are, I know which side I'd rather be on.
