The first couple Adventure Time seasons were literally just a D&D campaign that they were running and used for script material. Pretty neat actually. After that the plots started getting more complex, and you could tell they were really trying to come up with interesting stuff. I think around season 5 it started to get stupid though. All of the Finn dating stuff was cringe.

Sort of, the fact is that it wouldn't be possible for anime to be as big as it is unless it appealed to adult audiences. When you're not making shows that are "just for kids," you can start trying to really experiment and create masterpieces. There are plenty of good children-targeted anime too, but I don't think it'd be all there if animators didn't feel like they could cover more mature themes.

Dunno about innovative, but I'd say it certainly won out on artistic merit.

Everyone should pirate these two collections in the pics here, they're magnificent. Even the most blatantly propagandistic animation of theirs had more craft and effort poured into it than anything we have now.

A couple of years ago, George Lucas of all people said Soviet directors had more artistic freedom than he did. That managed to trigger the entirety of American media.

Likely it is exactly this. Though then again, to tie this into the video game discussion, this does not account for rising and falling trends in the quality of the more mainstream and flagship products, which can also be observed to sometimes run counter to the overall growth of an industry.

PROGRESSIVE WHITE JUCHE IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE

>>2553390

We must remember that we, the Aryans, have always been socialist until Capitalism, Liberalism and catholic Mainstream Christianity infiltrated us. These ideologies were not created by our own bloodline, but are foreign to our species as they are to the yellow race, too. We, the true Socialists, even predict German philosophers such as Hegel or Marx. We must remember that true Marxism and bonapartist-socialist Not Socialism, are deep believers in the original pagan Gnosis that was created by White Egypt to honour our Anunnaki makers of the eternal Sun of Isis and Osiris and social revolutionaries such as Urukaginer, who freed White Sumer from corruption when he discovered stone tablets were the first socialist laws were written into stone by someone yet unknown.

The White and the yellow bloodline come from very similar sources - we are two bloodlines of the same Sun. Through the creation of Bonapartism, Marxism and White / Germanic Socialism we have emancipated ourselves from old beliefs, but never really rejected the true source that burns in our hearts since day one when our ancestors were created as equal workers of earth.

We have emancipated ourselves from a god avove us, from Money-Capitalism, from Christianity and the slavery of Moloch in the old Testament because the "gods of enlightement" are within us, in our DNA and Blood - ready to resist the great storm.

We have created modern Socialism as revolutionaries, as gnostic scientists opposed to the Reaction and false Leftism / Liberalism. But in the end, all of it was done to protect the true holy grale of our origin that lies within us and links us to the proto-Sumerian ancestors of Tutanchamun and Echnaton.

We had our time in Sumer, Egypt, in hellenstic Greece / Atlantis, Hyperborea, Germania and the Celtic Age. The measures taken against our bloodline, the Gnosis within us, led to changes. We became more radical and created modern Socialism to survive, trying to complete the thousand-year Empire and a Third Rome, we made hegelian synthesises and once our last hope were Germany and Russia.

But both new Romes were defeated and played off against each other. But now, we see our spirit rising in Asia, in Korea. This is something our opponents couldn't foresee because they were so much focused on us, not understanding that once a great idea is born, it can never be exterminated completely.

And now we see the spirit, that we brought to the world as new gnostic socialist Supermen and Luciferian progressives such as Prometheus, finally comes back to us through White Juche. AMEN. We must never forget the holy knowlegde. There will be a final holy battle as already mentioned by Hermann Scherchen.

This is where I think Jim Jones' history was revised. Jim Jones knew this and worked out that the final revolution is death. The bourgeoisie can't exploit you if you're no longer around to exploit. I call this idea "deathly-NEETism". This is only option for revolution this late into post-modernism.

There is demand elasticity. High elasticity means the quantity demanded strongly changes with price change, so more demand elasticity for games than movies would mean gamers being more assertive consumers. But directly using this and jumping to conclusions doesn't work, because differences in piracy throw a wrench in the analysis. Imagine a simple world without media piracy and with exactly the same demand elasticity for movies and games. Now, add in a piracy option for movies only. Some cheap-ass consumers will permanently choose the pirate option, and the remaining loyal ones will be less price sensitive. Let's add a piracy option for games as well, but it is a bit harder to use. The result will be some cheap-ass gamers leaving, but the reduction in demand elasticity won't be as strong here. So, when looking at legal acquirements only, the overall effect will be that gamers will appear more savvy as consumers.

Good point. Perhaps the x-factor isn't necessarily the size, so much as the fact that a sizeable portion is aimed at mature audiences (and isn't comedy). In that respect, I guess American animation is just plain doomed by now.

>Though then again, to tie this into the video game discussion, this does not account for rising and falling trends in the quality of the more mainstream and flagship products

An interesting aside. I'd say the difference here is that "mature videogames" almost inevitably means "full of tits and innards", with no real difference in themes, sophistication etc. The proportion of actually adult games is insignificant.

Well, Ancient Greeks considered homosexuality as manly as it gets. Then again, it was a remarkably misogynist culture, so if anything, female homosexuality probably was considered weakness squared.

Well the thing, coming from british culutre (which you have to remeber has kinda different view of lesbians to everyone else): lesbianism is three fold:

- butch birds

- tom boys

- foxy femmes

The first is pretty masculine, they are associated with strength, often physical broadness in all senses and strong personalities.

The second are also attached to male stereotypes, but not masculine ones: they tend to be more related to skilled persuits. Think that girl in engineering or the girl playing bass or who is good at vidya.

The third are basically traditionally fit women who just happen to be gay: so they are feminine, just kiss women.

Ellie is the second, which is actually more interesting than the other two, but is becoming antrope in the west in general innitself. However in Britain, the concept of this Tom boy not just being a manley girl, but gay is like 3-4 decades old. I mean why do you think they made tracer british? This has been a part of our culture for a while.

Which is funny because these are the types of people who unironically flip out if there a character turns out to be gay. I feel like the compulsive need to make strong female characters gay (or at the very least bi) is a sort of remnant of this notion. Basically it's "woke" 30-40 year old male producers who are trying to defy expectations but ultimately end up conforming to them without realizing it. This was especially obvious with Korra.

It doesnt have to be but it also can be. It doesnt have to be an expression of personal trauma but personal trauma can express itself in sexual preference too. Sex isn't a pure and untouchable expression of animal instinct.

Obviously the fucking cowgirl position doesn't mean you want the government to dominate you, or even that you want the woman to dominate you. Not absolutely all sexual anything is always extremely political. Even if one insists all sex is political its still capable of being so barely marginally so that it doesnt matter, but I wouldnt even say that it always is.

But wanting to be dominated or to dominate is wanting an authoritarian relationship. A facists desire for a tradwife, or said tradwifes desire to fill traditional gender roles isn't apolitical, the same kind of shit sans explicit and admitted politicization isnt apolitical either.

For another example- some girls have a sort of weird fetish for paranoid, controlling boys. You know, "yanderes". Does that make 'abusive boyfriend' a legitimate and acceptable personality type? Should you just pass that girls fetish for that off as "JUST sexual preference" and say it cant have anything to do with anything else like past personal issues or her unconciously learned idea of what a girls role in a relationship is supposed to be, or anything like that?

Well that's the thing, CGI doesn't have to limit art style, but it ends up doing that, and not just because the style in use is the proven one. It's not even a Pixar look, it's effectively the Disney feature-length animation look: all photo-realistic save for characters with cartoony proportions. Notice how most traditionally animated Disney movies fit this mold, but virtually all CGI movies do it. So it might be like you said, the artists just aren't bothering to innovate, but we should consider the possibility that CGI as a tool is an obstacle to art style innovation.

Consider this: following the photo-realism-with-cartoony-characteristics mold is simple, it's just a matter of getting 3D modellers to get to work, so all CGI movies look the same barring for character design. But take something that doesn't follow that mold, such as The Thief and the Cobbler. The more abstracized, highly stylized visual effects would be a fucking nightmare to do with CGI, whereas hand-drawn art doesn't impose this "extra cost". If anything, the abstract parts would actually be easier to animate, since the difficulty of animation is almost always on making characters move properly – which, come to think of it, is dead easy in CGI, thanks to motion capture.

You don't even need to go to an example as extreme as The Thief and the Cobbler, as Disney itself released its share of non-photo-realistic animations in the past, like The Three Caballeros and Donald in Mathmagic Land. These bursts of visual creativity seem to be completely absent in CGI.

So in conclusion, I'd say that CGI as a tool is another factor limiting creative output.

But I think this still gets snagged in the "not havng an a priori reason to believe" bramble. Steam refunds are notoriously easy to get, which makes them almost as much of a singularity as the Steam sales.

>I mean, you can get by but it was nicer when you could just open things up and be interested.

I feel you breh. You know what, I'm trying to learn to make browser addons and shit, altho I'm hitting on the barrier of horribly scattered reference docs. This Steam rubbish filter seems like a good introductory project. I'll look into it, tho I can't guarantee anything. If I manage to make it, I'll announce here as well as in /v/ and elsewhere.

>I like the point about games as self expression actually.

Not that guy, but I would love such a thing to be widespread, it's that the medium itself imposes an obstacle because it involves the work of a lot of different skills and disciplines, which puts it close to cinema. Any non-indie movie has a million people working on it, even tho it's only, what, up to half a dozen who have creative input? It's a difficult arrangement that can only work with big budgets, I think, and the big budget games sure don't care about hiring good writers. And if you try to make a game all by yourself, or with the least outside help, you'll risk the pretentious pixelshit trap. After all, comics and webcomics show how there's very, very few people skilled at both art and writing, and to make vidya they would have to be skilled at programming too.

>to be fair, all (US) tuition outpaced inflation didn't it?

Sure did. I simply realized that it was a perfect example because it's an intersection between Porky grifting the middle class via tuition, him also using out-of-reach universities as a swine sociation mechanism, and how that explains why certain colleges simply aren't teaching what they claim to be teaching, seeing as teaching is no longer their purpose.

What's worse is when content producers assume that "strong female character" is the same thing as "female character who is very strong." This idea has ruined a lot of female characters, most recently Rey from disneywars. Korra could also be used as an example of this. When ability to beat people up and fight becomes their only attribute the character can rarely struggle and grow, which makes them boring as fuck.

Very true, but games have more different kind of niches beyond "mature" because they have more variety in mechanics and platforms (very important that as it introduces absolute monopolies for at least for exclusives), with more predictable consumers in the niches. One arthouse film of one maker might be a hit, another a total flop. The makers of the next civilization-type game will have a much more trodden path ahead of them, with less room for error or innovation. I suspect that the whole medium is highly compartmentalized in ways that would influence consumer behavior, reactions, etc.

More fetish based rubbish. The problem with modern such characters is how they reject men entirely and hate them to irrationality. Ripley was a bad-ass not because she was big and strong but because she over-came the inherent BIOLOGICAL fact that females are physical weaker and through sheer determination and wiliness overcame that,whilst also appreciating the help of her male comrades, in the face of the marines.

Korra is nothing like this, she is a socio-pathic, selfish amazon stereotype on the same level of mary sue as wonder woman.

I didnt imply or assume that, I just said authoritarian relationships are shit.

They're shit because they're authoritarian, not because they're "unnatural". Fetishes that come from trauma are shit because they're a manifestation of things that are pretty inarguably shit and you'd be better off working through it and ridding yourself of that pathology instead.

But that second bit is aside the point. The whole drift into explicit, acknowledged dom/sub shit, I didnt mean to happen. I still think that more explicit fetish shit IS political and isnt to be unquestioningly accepted, but thats a slightly different matter.

What I specifically had in mind was normal pepole who have a preference for someone physically and emotionally weaker than them. Or, with a different feel but still an expression of the same thing, people who want someone stronger than them. Not 'dom seeking sub' but a guy who wants a cute waifu gf or a girl who wants a soft cute boy, wanting these sorts of things specifically and in particular. Thats what I was trying to get at with

>Wanting to be the benevolent master who'll be nice and not authoritarian is still wanting to be the master.

Wanting someone weaker than you is wanting someone who you will be dominant of even if you dont explicitly admit it, or focus on it in particular.

In any relationship where one party is weaker, the weaker party is more vulnerable to abuse and coercion. Many stronger partners not being bastards doesn't make this dynamic any better. See the history of women being socialized to be submissive and obedient partners for evidence. Thats why I severely distrust anyone who wants someone weaker than them, though not necesarially someone who'd just be as fine with someone weaker than them as someone not so.

I do think sub/dom shit is the same, but saying it is is a different argument I didnt mean to get into.

These are fake protests, no different than Arab Spring.

Chinese state editorial:

http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1106711.shtml

>This view distorts the original intentions of the Vietnamese government, and it is using anti-China sentiment to incite nationalism to challenge the current political system in Vietnam. Sino-Vietnamese relations have maintained steady development in recent years. South China Sea disputes have been effectively under control and bilateral cooperation has been fruitful. Moreover, China has remained Vietnam's largest trading partner. Bilateral trade volume reached $121.3 billion last year, 24 percent higher than in 2016.

>Citizens have direct access to Western websites such as Facebook, a convenient platform for political dissidents, such as the New Vietnam Revolutionary Party, to engage in political liaison and mobilization. Prevention of the infiltration of foreign forces is likely behind Hanoi's recent cyber security legislation.

>forces who attempt to utilize disputes between the two countries to instigate discontent within Vietnamese society over the Vietnamese Communist Party are becoming a prominent political concern in Vietnam.

>Incitement of nationalism to oppose a government that is promoting sound foreign policy is often a trick of political opponents. Now that Chinese and Vietnamese mutual interests have become closely aligned, without political incitement, there should be no collective hatred toward China in Vietnam.

>At any rate, what's behind the protests is up to Vietnamese leadership to decide, though they should be allowed to do so without outside provocation. I believe that the mainstream society of Vietnam will take notice of similar "proxy conflict" experiences around the world.

Here's BBC:

>At a fire station attacked by protesters, riot police are reported to have laid down their shields and equipment and withdrawn in an apparent peace gesture.

Would there be any interest in running a sort of simple wargame similar to how we did the Crisis in the Kremlin threads? Already banged up a really simple rule set (hex-based, three unit types with diff attack/move ranges, uses a D20 for combat; 11+ gives a range of positive results (four in total) while 10- turns the same results back on the attacker. Figure it'd be simple enough for people to just jump in without having to really learn anything) and I kinda liked how the CitK threads turned out. Thread would "vote" on a plan for each turn based on the information available (some enemy units would be pre-known, rest would have to be spotted) and we'd go from there.

Figure it could be a welcome break from the summer threads we've been getting, if nothing else.

you know while i could tolerate this kind of attitude in a full employment environment and a unionised company lead by a boring authoritarian in a suit atop the technostructure it's disgustingly classcuckish in the present environment and with Tesla of all places. although in my persistent anti-californian crusade I have come upon the just-so story that the overpaid STEM class essentially live in a post-scarcity society already, which would be analogous in some ways to the security of a full employment society. The fact they live in such a society and I don't has however made third worldism immensely sympathetic and intuitively understandable.

(God, isn't Tesla such a reddity name, while we're at it?)

Where does classcuckery come from? It can't just be a US thing - You know what Eastern Airlines unionised employees said when the company went bankrupt (in part due to their persistent strike action) after the CEO tried union busting in the 80s?

"We've won." or something to that effect, I got the quote from someone else on /leftypol/ ages ago and I can't verify it.

Then

>outside Eastern's headquarters in Miami yesterday, members of the machinists union continued to picket, jeering at nonstriking employees who were leaving with their belongings. "We told you so," they shouted, waving signs that said, "Eastern Airlines: Rest in Peace" – and "Rest in Pieces."

It's a shame nobody is that bloody-minded anymore. Actually it's a shame most people are too cowed to even go on wildcat strikes or sabotage equipment, I assume largely in part due to the apparatus of surveillance and control now in place and in part due to the difficulty of rebelling against bureaucracy versus clear delineated hierarchy.

>Q: How is this different from DID/MPD/Schizophrenia?

>A: The mental disorders listed above are usually caused by genetics, or by experiencing traumatic events. People with these disorders have symptoms that happen involuntarily, and people with these disorders cannot choose or control their symptoms. Sometimes patients will black out, their place being taken by another personality, without the host having any control over the process. These things don’t happen to people with tulpas. You can choose to listen to your tulpa or ignore them, and you will not black out even if you give them control of your body. You have a great amount of control over how you wish to raise your tulpa, so you will probably end up with someone with a personality you like and enjoy interacting with. The mental disorders listed above are harmful, and will hamper your ability to function; however, tulpas are benign and willful. If you approach the phenomenon correctly, tulpas will improve your life, with their company and friendship.

Much like tulpas themselves, this sounds delusional. Matter of fact is, modern medicine is still shit, doubly so when it comes to psychology, and there's no reason to believe these disorders are restricted to genetics and trauma. They may be atleast partially "emulated" by a brain tumor or lead poisoning, for example.

I've got a great measurement system for gayness.

d = number of dicks.

b = number of balls.

v = number of vaginas.

t = number of tits.

G = f(d+b)/ f(v+t) = gayness ratio

normal 1-1 vanilla porn => G = (1+2)/(1+2) = 1 => heterosexual baseline

No women => G = n I 0 => infinitely gay.

no men => G = 0 I n => only gay for women

mff threesome => G = (1+2)/(2+4) = 0.5 => better than vanilla

mmf threesome => G = (2+4)l(1+2) = 2 => twice as gay as vanilla

1 shemale solo => G = (1+2)/(0+2) = 1.5 => less gay than mmf but more gay than vanilla

trap (no boobs) on trap (no boobs) => G = (2+4)I(0+0) => infinitely gay

shemale (boobs) on trap (no boobs) or vice versa => G = (2+4)/(0+2) = 3 => twice as gay as 1 shemale solo

man fucking shemale => G = (2+4)/(0+2) = 3 => just as gay as the one above

shemale fucking woman => G = (1+2)l(1+4) = 3/5 => less gay than vanilla but more gay than mff

50-man 1 woman gangbang => (50+100)/(1+2) = 50 => 25 times gayer than mmf

IRB oversight applies to human subjects research with federal funding, or that takes place at an institution with federal funding. We intentionally conducted our research outside of academia, without federal funding, in order to remain independent from the fierce tempest of ideological, social, and political pressures that besets the contemporary study of sexuality. Even though our research explores human behavior, we did not directly study human subjects. All our data was acquired from the public domain or shared with us by private sources such as PornHub, OKCupid, Sssh.com, etc. There is no original survey data in our book, and all the original data that was included, both public and private, was entirely anonymous: we neither requested nor received identifying information about individuals.

The return of ye olde Japan action games and the growing technical focus on swordsmanship in gameplay are nice and all but I hope HEMA doesn't get left out, especially in film. Anyone who thinks realistic or practical swordplay isn't beautiful deserves a pommel to their face.

Also, guards by themselves (as static weapon positions before engaging) are not as important as one might think. It's useful too to see them as positions that one might pass through or end in when moving to offend and defend which provides a framework on how a fencer should move.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKptjGIfUx8

To paraphrase the texts, to be still is to be dead. I believe it is how well the phase of engaging, intercepting and outmaneuvering (which applies to all combat and really, all competition if you think about it) is represented that one should tend to if they wish to capture "realism". Of course, the movements made have to make sense in a martial and historical context. There's no better way to gain an understanding of the mentality and physicality behind it all than to consult the historical sources and their interpreters.

Exactly. A Tulpa is in many ways the same except that it's increased realism is based on the feedback you give your own illusion. If you do it correctly it is in a way an imitation of split-personality except that you remain fully conscious of it. Schizophrenia doesn't come into the equation.

'Trap' is a terribly flawed category. If we take it at the functional meaning, that is someone who convincingly appears to be a woman and thus 'traps' you into believing its a woman, then this is by no means gay.

However the fetishisation of this into a genre of its own effectively removes the 'trapping' deceptive aspect as 'traps' are overtly not 'convincing women' but twinks in dresses. The attractive taboo aspect of 'traps' is brought entirely to the forefront with 'traps' often being nothing more than cute twinks flaunting their bulges. This is extremely gay.

This is all further compounded by the greater exposure of the internet to trannies (the focus in this case being, as it almost always is, on mtf trans girls) which can be grouped with the typically pornographic trope of 'shemales' and the like.

The general guidelines that i see are primarily around (in the case of porn: perceptible) sex characteristics, that is the presence of female genitals and/or breasts is sufficient to disqualify something as gay. The same should therefore go for the opposite case, the presence of male genitals disqualifies something from being straight. By this model to be attracted to/aroused by the butt and hanging balls of a boy in a short skirt is the purview/indicator of homo/bisexuality, whereas to be attracted to/aroused by an actual trap (say a longhaired femboy in a dress who isn't flaunting his cute bulge) or a passing mtf tranny is the purview/indicator of hetero/bisexuality. A shemale (or in 2d porn futa) is by this model excluded both from being gay and from being straight, thus is exclusively the purview/indicator of bisexuality.

Of course genitals and the like are not the only factors at play, the presence or not of facial/body hair, the facial structure, muscles, etc. are all factors which influence attraction both in a general and a sexed sense and so the 'passability' of a femboy or a transwoman as female and that of a tomboy or a transman as male impact the attractiveness of these to straight and gay men respectively.

tl;dr: perceptibly male = faggotry, perceptibly female = the straights are at it again

Liking something perceptibly female with a cock is gay.

I dont have that school of athens picture, but you know the one I mean.

It doesnt matter how feminine or apparantly female they look, its gay because it has a cock and you like that. Thats the damned definition of homosexuality, sexual attraction to the same sex, insufficient queerness or masculinity doesn't make it straight, the people who like that shit are bisexuals.

Preferring women and having higher and possibly more feminine standards for boys doesn't make a male bisexual 'basically straight' or straight in any sense, you aren't straight if you'd fuck a man in the ass. They just lean more towards girls. Liking both is the definition of 'bisexual', and it doesnt preclude preferring one and requiring the other be a little more like the one you prefer than usual.

my 'point' was to elucidate the notion of 'trap' and in what respects sexual attraction to 'traps' is homo/heterosexual. This is precisely why i delineated general guidelines around genitals since no matter how feminine a a face or hips someone has, if the they have a dick, being attracted to them is not straight. My main thrust is that sexual attraction is just as much about what isn't there as it is about what is. A pair of breasts isn't enough to make what is otherwise male attractive to a straight guy, nor is a dick sufficient to make what is otherwise female attractive to a gay guy. There are both positive and negative qualifiers for sexual attraction.

traps aren't gay, 'Traps' are.

bisexuality naturally.

this 'secret desire' is precisely the (taboo) attraction to the perceptibly male.

somewhat interestingly the notion of positive and negative qualifiers for sexual attraction makes the category of bisexuality not only the classical inclusive category (the person who is equally or otherwise attracted to both men and women and sleeps with both) but an exclusive category whereby their attraction for the the perceptibly female and for the secret penis instead of including them in both the straight and gay categories, disqualifies them from both, rendering them not both straight and gay but neither straight nor gay.

Yes. They talk to them, behave with them and play with them as one would a real, independent being.

>tulpas require you to deliberately fool yourself into believing the opposite, or at the very least lend them a more "real" status inside your mind that would override your control.

Not quite. It's forming another mind within your head that is almost wholly independent of you, only connected by body.

I'm going to quibble with this. The desire is exactly that for the male element that remains hidden. It is the thing that can not be gotten at, and if it was ever realized, if the fantasy would be encountered in real life, it could not fulfill the desire. So I would only accept the idea of it leading into a purely excluded space.

I actually was tempted to expand in this direction, firstly to note again that the categories are for porn (the realm of representation and images, where the notion of 'traps' is precisely the latter, 'non-functional' trap and with which the treachery of images holds particularly strong as the 'trap with a secret penis' is if anything the epitome of "Ceci n'est pas une trap"), not holding entirely or even partially in real life where the matter is far more confounded, but that there is a difference between the 'positive' bisexual (inclusive of men and women in sexual preference) and the 'exclusive' bisexual who is defined not by the affirmation of both sexes sexual characteristics but rather by being excluded from one or both binary categories. The man desiring the trap not with a penis, but exclusively the secret penis, is not bisexual by virtue of belonging to the homosexual set, but solely by virtue of being excluded from the heterosexual one.

On a more practical ways, these descriptors (gay etc.) are of course tremendously useful, helping members of a minority group easily find each other.

>drugs

Funny you should mention that, because I've read a lot of anecdotes surrounding various drugs and potential connection to schizophrenia. While this obviously isn't an objective research, it seems like the general conclusion is that any given person has a given probability of developing schizophenia. For most people, it's pretty much zero. People with a family history however have significant chances, and the closer the affected relative, the higher the chance. In this context, certain drugs do add to the probability, thus causing some of these vulnerable people to go over the edge. This is also while ruling out drugs that actually do cause temporary psychotic episodes.

>A Tulpa is in many ways the same except that it's increased realism is based on the feedback you give your own illusion

Dunno man, judging by my occasional glimpses into tulpa threads, it feels like they generally believe in the tulpa's existence as a separate entity, whether it's a "magical construct" or a dissociated personality or such. But I guess this is far from an objective observation on my part.

No, that's exactly the opposite of a Tulpa.

welp it finally happened, i got pulled over for writing "8645" on my car's back window with erasable window markers.

fatass meathead cop kept repeating "that could be interpreted as a threat to the government and to all police everywhere" and i refused to speak unless it was to answer a direct question with "yes" or "no" or i dont know". also my constant shit-eating grin probably put him off. he kept me pulled over in the 90-degree heat for about 45 minutes total while he talked to someone on the radio and played on his phone. every 10 minutes or so he'd walk to my window and repeat "they're telling me to ask to search your car" and i'd say "nope". after the third time i asked if i was being detained, he sort of stuttered "well, no" so i just drove off.

I've finally got around to watching some of hbomberguys videos because I see him posted around a fair bit. Overall he says some things I agree and disagree with but he's a pretty entertaining dude so I've enjoyed what I've watched but thats besides the point. The one thing I am kinda confused about is the fact that someone managed to make an 8+ hour long video about one of his videos. I felt pretty bad spending the hour on the original one nevermind the 30k people who watched this.

Maybe it's just something about how different people approach different things but I think I can watch something like this and feel fairly satisfied as to whether or not I agreed with it and move on but some people obviously don't, especcially when it's just about a 3-4 year old video game.

Saying this it's probably just a good way to make money for both sides. It seems to attract much more of a viewership when you are against something than when you are for it but I don't know. In conclusion it was probably a waste of an hour but I was entertained even if I disagreed with some parts and I think you'd have to be a nutter to watch a response video that is 8 hours long.

Some more material.

Japanese half-swording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO9HoH_GsYA

/fa/ncing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQ88cuzsyqE

When you get down to it, the most important skills in fencing apply also to all martial arts and there are only so many ways the human body can move. Try to ignore the various body languages that represent the different traditions, periods, preferences, ways of generating power etc. and focus on the weapon itself. Watching Martin Fabian working the point with both the rapier and longsword just shows how he's pretty much using the same principles to do the same things barring non-issues like number of hands used or as mentioned, the body language. The fact that he frequently shows cuts with the rapier (because they can) and how he and Anton showcased just how nimble the longsword's point is brings the two weapons even closer. There's even a post by the artist of first pic which explains basic rapier stuff using pieces of Liechtenauer's teachings on the medieval sword.

https://junck-ritter.tumblr.com/post/156620618116/rapier-fencing-according-to-johannes-liechtenauer

To go even further, the earliest discovered translation/explanation of Liechtenauer's "poem" (because codifying your teachings in cryptic text is hip back then and we don't actually have the original poem, just the copied ones accompanied by interpretations by his students which in turn get interpreted by us, whew) so far opens by telling us there is only one art. Liechtenauer is not at all the originator of this art. He had traveled and learned from others before becoming a teacher himself. A madman can apply that "one art" concept to the entire world too. The one art is all encompassing. Tie it to my observations of how similar the handling of a rapier and longsword can be. A sword is a sword after all. A cut is a cut. A thrust, a thrust. Parries are parries. Ripostes are ripostes. And so on. Even between different kinds weapons, similarities are abound. It's all interconnected thanks to physics, geometry and biology. However you do all those things, you're doing it right if you're not dead. Most of the time. Maybe. In any case though, the H in HEMA means something. You're free to become the perfect organism but that's not really what historical fencing is about.

The overwhelming majority of people don't know about it and/or have a minimum sense of decency. YT's search works well enough that most people don't bother with tags, if they even know they exist.

As to patching it, well, it's not a problem unique to YT. Cue all those Chinese vendors who fill their sell offers with unrelated keywords. As to why it isn't patched, my guess is that it's in the nature of the tagging system to allow any given entry to have as many tags as possible on the assumption that the user is being honest, because If this simple condition is true, then it follows that the more tags the better, because it means the entry is better described. One of the problems this creates is that the system can't spot cheaters by sheer number of tags alone; it would have to know the trustworthiness of each tag in relation to its entry, whether there's few or many of them in an entry. Needless to say, AI is very, very far from being able to do recognition on that level. The only option YT has, I think, is simply to rely on the abusers being reported, which is rare because, again, most people are unaware of or don't care about tags (and that's assuming YT will act on it if the abuser has been pumping them with publicity money, which those altist e-celebs probably are).

Bit overstated, it rather identifies "community" as having a shared interest, and you can then have friends inside that community. Weird as it is, it's a necessity in a space-less medium; using physical proximity as a filter for being part of your community (the traditional kind of community) makes little sense on the internet, so we all experiment with other criteria. There are other ones than hobbies: like as not, at least of few of us will be part of whats app or facebook "communities" that groups people you went to school with, the people from your former workplace, a local advocacy group, political convictions, and so on.

Of course all of these are less meaningful than an actual physical community, and this actual physical community is what quite a few people here seem to lack.

The movie is very, weird to say the least. I know I shouldn’t over analyze this shit, but god damn it. Radicalization made me notice the stupidest shit which would have made this movie enjoyable for me as a liberal now notice so much garbage and weird contradictions.

I just read Animal Farm today, here's a link to the movie:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ibe-BgqwNg

It's supposed to be anti-communist, I guess, or at least to criticize Stalin's regime, but I think that Stalin at least kept somewhat true to the communist ideals, no matter the spending on himself or his cruelty. I saw the parallels from the start – Old Major is Marx preaching his vision of communism, Napoleon is Stalin, Snowball was ⛏️rotsky, etc. However, rather than being against these things, I think the point to take from this book really is that you should watch out for revolutions being subverted, as Stalin had taken power that would have otherwise gone to ⛏️rotsky, proceeding to then develop the cult of personality and the like. It is, however, commendable that Stalin tried to export the revolution to eastern Europe and Korea, despite those places being more so meat shields for the Soviet Union rather than fully-intentional socialist states. Still, I wonder what the difference in benefits would be for communism if those meat shield countries had been less exploited by the Soviet Union. Anyways, corruption can happen in any economic system, not just socialism – the real warning, again, is to subversion of the revolution.

The NEET Trap.

I can't say I completely escaped it (the only thing that would give me any sense of accomplishment by now was to somehow help our cause, but that's impossible nowadays unless my posts can be edited into genius theory), but what I can recommend is, start a project. Something related to something you enjoy, which solves a problem or otherwise improves that thing, something discrete which can easily discerned so you can say "I built that". In other words, a creative activity in the broadest sense of the term (tho it can be artistic too I guess) with a clear and achievable result.

Right now I'm learning webdev crap. Start small with browser addons I'm surprised no one made, hopefully work my way up to making whole sites I'm surprised no one made.

increasingly convinced there's some kind of inherently reactionary tendency in TEM fields. having reactionary-lite thoughts myself i have to wonder if it's genetic or otherwise inherent in the biology, if there's some kind of shared impulse that makes you reactionary and makes you go into those fields.

alternatively, tongue in cheek, it's because they occupy the neoliberal managerial role between the true and honest normal people who actually build things (yet imagine that they themselves, did the building, much as porky believes he actually produces products), and the real scientists who actually figure out the physics that make things stay built without exploding.

The USSR obviously had a strong scientific field and no bias aganist STEM (save for the occasional "counter-revolutionary" science like Darwinism or cybernetics), and save maybe for the first generation, the PRC government has been as stuffed with engineers as America's is with lawyers, to which I honestly attribute their long-term economic planning success. It's not STEM that breeds reactionarism, it's anything in capitalism that breeds reactionarism.

That said, I'd say there is some causal relation between people who enjoy these fields and people who are introverted, lack collective perspective etc. It's a cliche, but it seems to be partially true that exact sciences attract more anal-retentive, socially stunted people. If personality can be typified, it makes sense the types would gravitate towards qualitatively different activities.

It's been a while since I read it, mostly firing from the hip here. Maybe I just picked a bad book out of a series. But the one I read missed any kind of stakes or tension. And the story and character motivations ran up against end of history ennui. It's the tension between "we can do anything", and "none of it matters", without sufficient gravity - all handwaived away and distracted from by "look how cool this is, he has a dozen penises grafted onto him". It's the same quibble I have with Rick and morty, it was not an idle comparison.

Now that you mention it, it seems to be an issue for someone who reads only part of the series and ends up missing part of the big picture. Accross the entire series, the big themes and even the mood of each novel varies wildly. This particular case, the post-utopia blues, gets brought up sooner or later in every Culture book because, well, it's inevitable. Sometimes he goes deeper into it, sometimes not, like in that case. But either way, it's something that has to be acknowledged in every book since it's part of the nature of the beast.

Also it's worth mentioning, as the series goes on, the universe ends up having "possibility creep". These ideation authors add too many things for them all to have a bare minimum of development. It's frustrating but I don't hold it as a flaw in their writing skills, for the simple reason that other writers develop as much as them despite thwoing out fewer ideas. At the end of the day, the ideation author has given you freebies.

I think it's stupid that the replicants need this stupid symbol to assert their humanity. The original blade runner is much clearer in that way. They are human because they are just like humans. But since it's a way to think about the possibilty of an upheaval, I guess that's alright, since the new movie also takes on the material of the old movie, the basic move of the old movie.

It directly formulates the need for a revolution in a theatric way. Nevertheless this revolution is ultimately going to fail, looking at the movie, they only got this petri-dish chick who refuses to put out, which is stupid anyway.

Still love her though.

Continuing my thought: What's the best the replicants can hope for? Some kind of end-slavery movement, because the humans are finally sympathetic or what? Or do they need to be actually convinced of their humanity and their worthiness of life so to speak by virtue of one of the actually having given birth? What if that's just another possible way for them to be exploited. Maybe they should kill her?

To sum it up: The replicants need another form of mobilization then virgin mary. Either they need Jesus, or they need some kind of replicant newspaper, imo.

Another common effect is increased libido, which has the devilishly ironic of being counteracted by increased difficulty to get and stay hard because it causes vasoconstriction.

If you're talking depression, well sometimes Aderall is prescribed for that too, tho it's rare. I really would like to take a shot at that tho. Otherwise, you can literally find better antidepressants with a drug pusher than with any drugstore in the world. Special K and LSD microdoses have a gigantic amount of anecdotal evidence regarding their therapeutic effects, and the former is already officially confirmed by academic papers. But the details for all of this is a big topic.

Adderall is not a methamphetamine, it's an amphetamine.

Also, try nicotine. Vaping, mints, patches, or gum. Nicotine is a stimulant just as effective as adderall at low-med doses, but has fewer side effects. It'll increase your mental energy, motivation, focus, memory and response times.

It's strange to me when someone doesn't sense Kafka's humor. Supposedly it's common for people not to sense it, though.

how do you live with guilt anons? I've done some awful things nobody will ever find out about, but that constant guilt is there in the back of my head.

False, do some research before running your mouth. Isolated nicotine is not much more addictive than caffeine. Cigarettes are highly addictive because of many different chemicals that are present in them.

False as well, it is actually fairly strong and reliable, it's just not abuse-prone.

The best answer I can give is "just barely", and that's from 90% unwarranted guilt.

>sociopath

Anon…

If you can feel guilt, you're not a *path. It's probably antisocial personality disorder I guess. There's always therapy, and again, illegal drugs, in this case empathogens and psychedelics, which have a similar, if weaker, capacity to improve your way of dealing with people.

>>2559609

Frankly, experience tells me the stimulant effect is weaker than that of energy drinks, so still not worth the addiction.
