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.

Corporate Skullduggery All Up In My Face Ahoy!

Leap Day marks me losing the work site I've had since May 2003.

Client kept dividends rising - even through the long grim dead-zone of 2009 & 2010 - but their shares have suddenly been nuked in 2016.



This cat would've made a better CEO.

Next posting I get could be better, could be fuglier ... "STAY ATTUNED!"

Son of Revenge of Nontrivial Pursuit Strikes Back

Can subcultures now emergent on behalf of a panarcho-eroticist dissident evolution of polity prevail against the need of dominant culture to trivialize & neutralize it?

Situational Chagrin Ahoy!

I let the Abyss look into me all the way ... & now I fear the Abyss will have nothing but nightmares whenever she dares slumber, the poor dear thing.

Post-Thanksgiving Ahoy!

What's better than turkey with mashed potatoes & gravy?



Thanks!

The Beautiful Echoes of Our Dead Eon of Gnosis

The most epic sea changes in human history may have been not the rise of urbanization or industrialization, but the point at which our cultures went from dictating our potential collective future to chasing after it -- & the point past which no individual could be a comprehensively successful polymath.

Wave-Function Conjecture

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, thereby 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?

Shots At The Dark

Dark Matter/Dark Energy Alternatives:

- Spacetime vector proportionate to its cumulative quantity

- Cosmic suspension in metaverse; metaversal contraction/condensation "pulls" universe into expanding & accelerating

- Strange matter cosmic perimeter made to accelerate by adjacent phenomenon

- Granular Planck-scale space has spatial granules which are accelerating toward an ambient diameter (at a rate which presumably will not violate the speed limit of c)

- Acceleration is result of accumulating wave-function collapses

IQ Hijinx Ahoy!

People who design IQ tests keep making them increasingly tougher to master due to the Flynn effect.

The subjective effect of this policy on the population over time is that your tested IQ* will usually keep falling after you reach optimal brain function (circa 22), the shrinking number flying in the face of everything we know regarding experience & long-term cogitation as enhancers of intelligence. Also note that we know that at least in children, the social self-image developed in school - brainy nerd or dumb jock - has a real corresponding effect on their subsequent development of intelligence. IQ isn't just controversial - for a growing elderly demographic it may be becoming literally toxic.

Average IQ is a value with no net numerical accuracy over time.

This contradiction appears insoluble.

_____________________________________________________________________

* Mine was 187 as a wee sprog circa 1972, burned down to thirty points less by the last test I took, circa 2000. Makes for a jocular little thought-experiment to work out that long before my 500th birthday, my IQ would inevitably reach zero.

Thesis

That the content of descriptions within a theory or theories of sets can be used to derive a complete map of both extant & latent realities.
