gaia's voluptuous anvil = A Dash Of Tuesday Whimsy

Using brute logic, I arbitrarily changed the blog's name so as to bring it more in accordance with the morbid-yet-playful text that I have next to my icon thingy.

Note that said icon thingy was - & some might argue still is & always has been - my true motivation for this blog ... because I disliked seeing a generic default blob beside my comments.

Now this blog is named after my 1990s radio show, the crusty vehicle of yore via which I exposed entire scores of Lotuslanders & sundry BCians/N.Washingtonians to the likes of Evil Twang, nomeansno, Terror Of Tiny Town, ten days late, Wretched Ethyl, Little Fyodor, cranes, Frank Zappa, Throbbing Gristle, perfume tree, ZILLATRON, Tankhog, Mudhoney, The Monoxides, Dayglo Abortions, Nina Hagen, Submission Hold, Aging Youth Gang, The Residents, Einsturzende Neubauten, DSK & whatever else I could get my little tentacles on through the wee hours.

Wave-Function Hypothesis

That given sufficient quantum instability, in an extremely primordial or degenerate universe wave-functions may collapse in such a way as to tunnel or jump past the event region, thus transiting into a state of antiprobability.

(Note that in this state they would not have a negative probability, as certain quasiprobability distributions are said to have, nor any other anomalous probability value such as a variable. They would thus exist in a very exotic state indeed, since they could neither be concrete [probability =1] nor impossible [probability =0], nor could they exhibit any level of probability in between.)

A hint! A most palpable hint!

In highly discrete cultures like Parliament or Scientology or professional sports or Wall Street which produce/enforce artificial dementia, specific in-group idioms appear, & from these all such cultures appear able to exchange terminology, memes & tropes seamlessly.

Different clowns, one circus?

Not All Paradoxes Are Created Equal

Fermi's Paradox is mythological: the predicate requiring any hyper-intelligent aliens to opt for expansion toward a galactic empire is dubious at best. On the contrary, opting for & maintaining long-term cultural equilibrium in terms of habitat, energy & resource consumption may be an essential precondition to achieving high-order sentience.

Another Heritage Moment Ahoy!

Nothing puts the lie to the hubristic trope of an innately curious humanity quite like the contemplation of how much of human history has been an epic, continuous & brutal war on askers of uncomfortable questions.

A Midsummer Night's Nerdrage

The Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms dictate primitivism in discourse regarding sets.

GRRRRR.

Nontrivial Pursuit

Can the current dominant global culture of psychosexual infantile barbarism be evolved into one of psychosexual juvenile post-barbarism, & if so what ingredients will make this evolution a success?
