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.

Reorganising a lot of the old simulation code for modularity/extensibility. Surprisingly, it's more relaxing than tedious or boring.

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.
