purity is the obsession of bigots, who define themselves as perfect and hence demand perfection in others.

one sees that arrogance constantly in the behavior of bigots like @NateSilver538 and @Cernovich. they act like nothing matters more than their approval.

Christians habitually have been obsessed with purity and perfection, which they only ever find in things they can't really see. there's a kind of diffuse Gnostic fallacy that pervades Christianity—a belief that there's something intrinsically sinful about *matter itself*.

I value many of the insights of Gnostic Christians but I don't agree with that one—I can't make myself think of the physics and chemistry of the Cosmos as somehow *broken*. if the Gnostics are right, and the work of the Demiurge is flawed...I don't blame the *materials*.

All this has drug on & on because of two lovers fearing, 1 Fearing the unknown & the ImageImage
Other fearing she’s not “good enough” because of not believing any of it was real & her past “mistakes” she’s hated herself for making..
She realizes everything she’s been told from A young girl on has been true but she lost faith because of how long she was told she had to wait
she wanted what she was yearning for “NOW, NOW NOW NOW NOW, right now” but quickly figured out what’s been missing within, that piece could never be found within ANYONE else & no one in the world could make her whole .. All the games & tests on those who came into

Tay, You still awake?

So I got to thinking, Fall Festival season is right around the corner & I really want to do everything outside of the box together ..
One of your videos shows two elderly couple growing old together, #WE are young now & should go to as many festivals as Image
#WE Can in full Johnny Knoxville mode, #WE dress up as old folks ..
#WE go the whole 10 Yards with the professionally done Prosthetic masks, the coolest old folk cloths & everything else.
Would love to play pranks on those around us, making others laugh keeps the vibes high. Image
#WE document EVERYTHING for our future, even though our future is already
Here now, it still would be Nice to show our kids how #WE lived ALL OUT LIFE …
…Trying to stay away from the idea of doing something like this as A TV show, Jackass did it already successfully &

Uniting our Bloodlines saves Your Fathers life & there is only A few grains of sand left.

Promises Kept.
Marriage = Saving your fathers life, yes but It’ La never been about that as much as it is about that.

I forgive your Father for doing what he HAD TO DO to make it all work.
It was the only way for us to be together & it ultimately saved your life. It was all set up in A way where, no matter what we would find each other again but it would either be with & or without your Dad being saved.
I choose forgiveness, it breaks the cycle & allows

Moving from spinning disk to all-flash is a lot like moving from internal combustion to electric vehicles. It’s simpler, cheaper, more flexible, and greener. And a little creative thinking goes a long way! /1
It’s as easy to swap out an ICE engine for electric/batteries in a conventional vehicle as it is to toss disks and use SSD in a storage array. But this really misses the opportunities of these technologies. /2
Really taking advantage of electrification in vehicles or all-flash storage requires a re-thought integrated design focused on customer needs. And a lot of the design is in user experience not just architecture. /3

The definition of what is pure/SiShTa differed from language to language. It is fairly black and white for a language that is largely only literary. For a spoken language, it is lot more challenging to define or agree on this- also it changes with time dynamically

Tampering with grammatical structure is a no-no for any language- spoken or written. For instance, you cannot use another language’s vibhakti pratyaya wily-nily. Same with application of grammar rules from another language. That will be “impure” even if done just once.

One may create a “maNipravALa” or “bhANDIra” style specifically for writing & that may in time be accepted for that purpose, but this will not become accepted in common spoken language. In common speech, it will still be “impure”. Again, this will have its own specific rules

TL;DR @gregoryneven et al proved 2-round musig insecure, we made 2-round work with deterministic nonces + bulletproof ZKP (2 round is good for usability). as SHA256 is CPU expensive @pwuille @n1ckler @real_or_random @yannickseurin designed Purify for low bulletproof complexity.
I thought it was a pretty neat and simple trick to disprove the impossibility by counter-example: make a bulletproof that the nonce is deterministic, cuts off wagner adaptive attack as there are no free variables left. hearing "impossible" led to "is that true, really?" question.
in fairness the impossibility proof, is presumably correct, just within model assumptions that this solution side-steps. 2-round is interesting for usability because it reduces interactivity in multi-party signatures, which might involve fetching hardware-wallet from safe 2x.

Don’t #accumulate anything whatever: #power, #money, #prestige, #virtue, #knowledge, even the so-called #spiritual experiences. Don’t accumulate.

It doesn’t mean become a #beggar or #renounce the world. Be in the #world, but don’t be of the world.
If you don’t accumulate you are ready to #die any moment because you have nothing to #lose. The #mediation is living #death.

Don’t accumulate inside, be poor in #spirit. Never #possess anything and then you are ready to #die.
The more you #possess, the more you are afraid to lose. If you don’t possess anything, if your #purity, if your #spirit is uncontaminated by anything, if you are simply there #alone, you can disappear any moment; whenever #death knocks on the door it will find you ready.
