Distributed networking

August 14, 2014

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.

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.

New Age of Do it Yourself Healthcare

June 1, 2014

http://askmarion.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/the-ad-add-adhd-autism-aging-inflammation-and-nutrition-connection/#comment-42912

I call it New Age, but in reality it is pretty Ancient if you look at Chinese chi gong.

This is more like returning to our roots than hippie weed smoking. Although I must say, I have yet to verify the contents of that article, so do your own research. As usual, think for yourself, by yourself. Voting not included.

Choice: How does it create solutions?

December 2, 2013

This is something I found a few months ago. I imagine the bundling works much the same way as cable channels, where they sell advertisement time based on the slogan that a company has access to XYZ number of viewers. However, unlike cable channels, you get to pay for what you like instead of paying cable networks for the ability to sell you to advertisement campaigns.

Centralized authority creates solutions by making sure people can do A and not do Z. Individual choice creates solutions by exploring all things in life minus the path chosen by authorities.

Even though I avoid social media like the plague, their use of FB and free social networks is a non-coercive ability to spread the word amongst potential buyers and sellers. Instead of making someone buy a cable package of 500 billion channels with nothing good or virtuous on them, so that you pay for the privilege of advertisers sending you commercials, the package is built and then people come and buy it if they wish. Imagine if cable only offered you 2 channels which you wanted to watch and nothing else, at 3% of the monthly price.

In a few generations, successful work from the ground up using free will, ultimately ends up as an authority, a centralized institution. But all things that live will die, so there’s no point refusing to live in the now just because of the future.

The Magic Gaze of Man and the Domestication of Dogs

September 21, 2010

Two pieces, domestication of dogs and the magic gaze of man, put together a complex and thorough history of human-animal relationships.

For cave paintings, form followed from function. The function of how animals behaved were put to artistic work by paint and hand. It served the purpose of educating new hunters and perhaps served as a great backdrop for stories and imagination. To imagine how to hunt well while in winter and then applying the new thoughts in the spring. Such did humans ascend the ladder of creation.

Diet Programs

July 24, 2010

I personally found this explanation of metabolism and weight class quite interesting, as well as true. It combines together a lot of what people may say is common sense with weight loss but it also includes some other details and learning tips.

I recommend it as an easy to understand and easily accessible explanation on what advertisers and scientists have made complex.

AI: Hardware Bottleneck in Artificial Intelligence

May 12, 2010

A breakthrough in molecular computing.

Once we have the hardware capable of creating thought, then we just have to write the software.

Hypnotism and the fear of Rush Limbaugh

April 21, 2010

It is not their minds they are worried about. It is their very identity. To them, the destruction of their vast Utopia is the same as a physical attack. They can neither handle the former nor the latter.

Alpha leaders exist for this express purpose. Throughout evolution, humans were weak, foolish, and all too easily killed by their own foolishness, ignorance, or sheer stupidity. Intelligence back then wasn’t rated on a standard test like the SATs. Intelligence back then was rated at how long it took you to realize that you should be running in front of ole George after George comes out of the bushes screaming in terror. Intelligence back then was rated how much you could imagine a blizzard or a famine or a winter without food, thus motivating one to plan ahead. Intelligence back then was all about how to adapt to ever changing conditions, no matter what they were, because all of them impacted human survival.

Alpha leaders exist to ensure that the people that they are leading gets what they need. Not what they want, but what they need to survive.

The simple reason why your friends fear Rush is because they believe that the only source that can give them what they need to survive is the Democrat party. They are the same as those stuck in cults. They can’t get out, because they believe their life will end. If you actually raised this subject with them, they will automatically shut you out. Because the very idea that their survival is at stake has to be denied, for that is part of their mental defenses. But this has gone on for too long. It is no longer a mental defense but a mental defect. It is not aiding them in survival as it was intended to be. Such mental defenses were simply to help humans cope with trauma in order to survive long enough to re-stabilize conditions. It wasn’t supposed to be there forever after.

There are many who were not invested in Leftist creed and dogma. Robin was. Neo and Book were not.

Without alpha leaders, all you get are a bunch of con artists that can easily sway the views of anybody else. At least the hypnotist in your story produced results. Con artists like Obama can’t even produce any results that are objective in standard.

They live by the cult and they will be used by the cult. It is as simple as that. The cult wants your money. You give it to them because the cult is your route to safety, whereas money is not.

How to deprogram people that has been in a cult? Patty O’Hearst, I believe, would know.

On a related topic, John put up this informative source pdf.

Neuro-linguistic programming works from what I have seen, unrelated to the fields of psychotherapy.

It’s something people have learned to use to con people, pick up women using seduction, or provide security and leadership to a community.

Some few people are very or entirely resistant to hypnosis. This can be because they have essentially created a counter-hypnotic command in themselves that says they, and only they, get to tell them what is or is not true, who or what they are. Others have very well defended personal boundaries that prevent anybody, perhaps even including trusted family members, from telling them what is or is not true, what is or is not good/evil, what is or is not appropriate. People have personal space, defined as their thoughts and emotions which they and they only control. Without the proper defense of such space, one can allow others, therapists or hypnotists, to encroach upon this space and slowly make it their own.

Others voluntarily abdicate part of their personal space for social reasons. Such as to get help from a therapist. To confide in a friend or family member. To obtain lovers and create long lasting relationships. Family and kids. Careers and goals.
There is also the scientific factor. There are 3 primary drivers in your brain. The neo-cortex, or rational mind. What the document may refer to as the critical factor. Then there is the sub-conscious monkey brain, the emotional level. The monkey brain has a lot of imagination. It is the part of you that tells you that you are going to die if you let that other guy humiliate you and not do anything back. It is the part that says winter is coming so you should store food now, while the grass is green. It is the part that controls all the social aspects of how you perceive life to be. When the monkey is driving the bus, your neo-cortex is not. While you may think you are in control and acting rationally, the one really in control is the monkey, a crack addicted monkey even.

The third driver that can be driving your bus is the lizard brain. This is the machine, the killer, the mother that goes werewolf to defend her child, the men and women who survive extreme physical hazards and conditions. It has nothing to do with your monkey brain. In fact, it will push your monkey brain right out of the driver’s seat and even throw him off the bus and then under the bus. *Bump*

The third driver, what can be commonly called the lizard brain, controls much of the adrenaline, endorphin production, and epinephrine production of the body. It also controls unconscious breathing, heartbeats, and various other autonomic processes. It is not so much that when you feel emotional, that your body then responds, so much as when you feel emotional your body starts undergoing a state change. A state change that will inevitably put you into behavior modes such as fight/flight/submit/x once your body and brain gets to a certain status. At that point, your pride, ego, and feelings of social discomfort goes away and is replaced by pure instinctual survival.

Hypnosis must always seek to place the monkey in the driver’s seat. Things like 9/11 tend to put the lizard brain in the seat. And things like reading philosophy, hearing conservatives, and using logic tends to put the neo-cortex into the seat. Hypnosis has to bypass those two things first, to work. But once bypassed, then it is easy. Once the monkey is in the seat, it is easy to tell the monkey something about what “could happen” like “right wing violence” and the monkey automatically imagines this in the future and then believes it to be true.

“If I turn my back on this guy facing me down, he’ll chase after me and I’ll be hurt”

That’s the kind of thinking going on. It has nothing to do with rational judgment. It has nothing to do with your survival, since leaving the place would preserve your safety. So would running. But your monkey brain tells you that you shouldn’t do this. Because it is on crack, obviously, and also in control of you.
