Totematika October 25, 2023 at 2:34 pm 1 month ago Is wanting the fight against determinism an emergent property of complex system? Marc Vader October 25, 2023 at 2:47 pm 1 month ago In our case, yes. But the emergence of the experience of “free will” and ego identity are almost entirely capable of hiding that dilemma from us. The Shadow October 25, 2023 at 8:01 pm 1 month ago ‘Emergence’ is just another word for ‘magic’. Demarquis October 29, 2023 at 4:39 pm 1 month ago It really isn’t, but I’m not sure that Totematika and Marc Vader are using the term correctly. Hexrowe October 25, 2023 at 4:10 pm 1 month ago Honestly, I think this kind of self-righteous emotional manipulation is more “monstrous” than anything we’ve seen Choan do. Harrow October 25, 2023 at 5:16 pm 1 month ago Yes. Somebody comes from a culture that doesn’t have a Friedrich Nietzsche (Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster.) Pete Rogan October 25, 2023 at 9:59 pm 1 month ago I’m confused. If indeed the Bupillions intended to teach Choan some self-knowledge about her loathsomeness, wouldn’t mob violence be an excellent way of getting that point across to her? Why provide a bodyguard, in that case? Given one level of deception pulled away, perhaps Poudric has another function than the one he states. Namely, to witness said mob violence and report on it to his higher-ups, who doubtless would be gratified to see the lesson beaten home. So to speak. Is this why he’s really accompanying her? One man with one leg without a weapon is only as effective a warrior as the first accurately-aimed thrown bowling ball, after all. The real question for Friday, and possibly subsequent, is what Choan intends to do with the mob coming after her. She sounds like this is an outcome she is prepared to face, and defeat, if not avoid entirely. So what’s her plan? And what hidden tech will now be revealed? Demarquis October 29, 2023 at 4:41 pm 1 month ago I suspect it’s less teaching her a lesson than causing her to ask herself some challenging questions and generate her own thoughtful answers to them. Dr. Moosen McMoose, Chief Spymooster of the Moosad October 26, 2023 at 10:48 am 1 month ago We’re about to see a literal one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest.
