Zo’s pretty funny and articulate. That’s been true even before he had a video arrangement with a media network.

Fantasy in Science and Science in Fantasy

Here’s the email I sent to Roberts:

This is a response to Even Fantasy Needs a Little Science by Tedd Roberts – Baen Books after reading it.

It reminded me of the recent work Brandon Sanderson has done in his fantasy, which utilizes strictly logical rules slowly exposed over the book, combining some mystery elements as one can figure out plot twists by collating and analyzing the rules themselves.

Also Japan has long combined science fiction with fantasy, such that there are very old and recognized stereotypes to Japanese RPG settings and backgrounds. Not only is there an Atlantis type advanced civilization that died out, but the residents are advancing out of the dark age with technological (re)progress. This ties into the work being done on Pillars of Eternity and Torment (1&2), given that regular fantasy settings has been done to death and it needs to be reformed if not recycled. PoE postulates a land of fantasy that is advancing into the colonial and industrial revolution, via the use of soul crafting to power technological applications. What people did with electricity in our time line, they do with the power of souls or magic as you will. This goes into the high tech = magic line of reasoning.

On another note, this is Robert’s concept applied to zombie apocs.

 

I believe people are bored of extremely stable social systems. They want change or to be more specific, they want to improve their social status. While others wish to improve their skills, their family, or their power levels.

Distributed networking

This is a pretty strange occurrence. I had heard of BitCoin before, of course, but I hadn’t quite connected all the dots yet.

When I was looking around for a new Geforce or Radeon graphics external (2 slots isn’t really a card any more), I picked up some fun reading.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r9-270-review-benchmarks,3669.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptocurrency

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

http://bitcoinminer.com/

That’s quite a bit of reading. The executive summary would be thus. Like crowd sourced produced games such as Minecraft (a java game about mining and building), digital currencies rely on computing power (Minecraft was produced using more of a conventional funding scheme from distributed users via a centralized interface and didn’t rely on distributed computing) and distributed networks (the basis of the internet itself) to guarantee security and authenticity. Although like various other simulated universes, there are ways to crack/hack/steal from the stupid to the smart. This is compared to the United States Regime that uses taxes to bank roll evil by sharing the load across 330 million people, so few people ever notice it. This is done via centralized fiat and digital currency, as well as various other things in the Leftist alliance. A simulated free economy, or just a real free economy, tends to burden the dumb and reckless risk takers with most of the losses.

AI (artificial intelligence) will most likely come from distributed networks in the future, not supercomputer cooled laboratories funded by centralized authorities. If one ever did come out of that, it would be psychotic and bent on enslaving humanity, essentially due to how it was created or raised. Although it would be more accurate to call the products of random luck HI or hyper aware intelligences, happenstance intelligence even.

Strangely enough, it was reading about all the money laundering and black market schemes and thefts that convinced me that this was real and wasn’t just an internet fad (like Obamacare). Generally whenever a new frontier is tapped, all the thugs, crooks, and risk taking gamblers get there first. And they got there fast.

Oh, here’s the source time history for the various Geforce and Radeon generations.

I have also heard of the game engine Unity, that uses a similar distributed network of suppliers and consumers.

Social Conformity vs Social Violence as Rebellion tool

It’s not depressing so much as illuminating to people like me. This is the way it has always been. Some societies just have different safety valves to them.

I can’t confirm the information, since my sources are not that deeply military/police. But if true, it will be interesting to see how they are used.

If they aren’t preparing for mass riots, they should be. The rest of us just have to figure out how to not get caught up in it. Don’t want to get hit by a JDAM from a drone after all.

Internal Power list

Posted August 1, 2014 by ymarsakar
Categories: Science, Traditional Martial Arts

[A person asked me to list some of what I knew, in the most basic format that is easy to understand for a Westerner, here is what I sent them]

Yes I practice Chinese style boxing and internal arts like Taiji Chuan. Although I am still discovering things as I go along.

The recent post (Taiji Chuan Force Vectors) is my recent work, so it is based on my current level. Previous early work blog posts from years ago, keeps things simpler.

For the simple list of internal power principles

1. Gravity 100% conversion. Falling directly in line with the acceleration of gravity 9.8 m/s/s such as dropping a knee on a fallen target, directly down and below your center of gravity.

2. Gravity partial conversion. Example, falling on/across someone and breaking their arm/leg, like in football injuries.

3. Force reflection is where energy projected into the target does not affect the target, instead it chooses the path of least resistance which is going back into the attacker’s body. Examples are when you push or punch a wall. You get a lot more energy back than if you punched water. The proof of which substance takes most energy, can also be seen in the displacement value of how much distance the target object has moved. Thus if a fat kid runs into a small kid, and the small kid gets ejected across the hallway while the fat kid is just standing there, then we can say the energy mostly went into the small kid. If the fat kid ran into a wall and got bounced off, then the energy went back into the fat kid. If the fat kid ran into a judo ka and got hip thrown, then this is a combination of various energies. The judoka uses the incoming energy, makes it go into a circle, and then feeds it back into the target, using gravity as an assist.

The judoka uses the incoming energy, makes it go into a circle, and then feeds it back into the target, using gravity to assist. This is an example of a technique that fuses together multiple principles into one technique.

4. Muscle acceleration: Just like in bench press where your triceps do a lot of the work, punches use the muscles to accelerate the arm and thus acceleration times mass equals force. The higher the mass, the lower the acceleration for the same effort, but the more force the mass hits with. Number 1 above is merely using one’s entire body mass, with gravity accelerating it. Muscle acceleration is limited by the limitations of the skeleton and tendon structure.

5. Intent. Desire, emotion, state of mind, all is included. This is either the strongest or the weakest force, as it is behind the use of all other forces. Intent controls the human body, so a weak intent produces weak results. In order to apply maximum power, one must look right at a target and then go through the target. Thus people who tend to look away when slamming a bat unto a target, can’t apply 100%. In H2H fighting, people flinch a lot, protecting their eyes or face. When attacking, it’s important to see the target. When moving, it’s important to use peripheral vision.

If there is no Will, there is no Way. So long as there is a Will, there is a Way to solve a problem.
