In February 1974, whilst recovering from dental surgery, something profound and inexplicable happened to author Philip K Dick that changed his life forever. Was it an illness, a psychotic reaction, or something truly mystical?

This is the exegesis of Philip K Dick...
Philip K Dick was both prolific and influential. In his youth he came to the conclusion that, in a certain sense, the world is not entirely real and there is no way to confirm whether it is truly there.
By the end of the 1960s Philip K Dick had published over 40 novels and stories, as well as winning the 1963 Hugo Award for The Man In The High Castle. But he still struggled financially...

THE RANCOUR PT3.

The trauma of being dickmatised set in barely 5days into Segun's departure for South Africa.
Adjusting to a new life without him was difficult.
6months seemed like 6centuries.

Brethren, issa thread.
#feeltheeagle #TuesdayMotivation #TuesdayThoughts
Before we proceed lets have a recap of PT 1& 2.
Bisi was in a relationship with Segun. Her sexual urges were uncontrollable. This led to series of abortions

Según travelled to SA on a 6month training for his new position at work.
(Check the thread of my pinned tweet to catch up)
Let’s get down to business.
Shall we?

Please do well to retweet. I see lots of votes on the polls compared to retweets.

BREAKING: MSNBC reporting that Mueller has released the Flynn memo, some is redacted, recommends 6 mos in jail. Essentially all info in re the ongoing investigation has been redacted. 2 counts of false statements listed..More to come.
#TuesdayThoughts
The Flynn Memo evidently also lists a total of 19 meetings with SC, and says that the Defendant has provided significant information and cooperation. There's also a comment about collusion. I haven't read it yet..make sure you watch @maddow at 9 et.
I find it very interesting and not at all insignificant that so much of the filing is redacted..that indicates to me a lot of sensitive information. Not necessarily a bad thing-productive investigation, which could be bad for Pence, (if I may speculate a bit.)

"The gov't continues to claim broad authority to deny reporters access to the WH for asking tough questions. And no Constitutional 1st Amend right to WH access.." THIS MATTERS, kids! #TuesdayThoughts #FreePress

2-"...Once the White House has decided to hold a press briefing, it can’t constitutionally use formal levers of power, like the revocation of a hard pass, to retaliate against a reporter for asking questions the government doesn’t like or for coverage the administration resents.
3-"That’s content-based retaliation for protected speech; and its prohibition is a central First Amendment principle...the revocation of Acosta’s hard pass escalates a broader trend by this White House to retaliate against media whose reporting it doesn’t like and to wield such

On Sunday between five hundred and a thousand caravan migrants carrying their country’s flag bull rushed the border. They screamed profanities and hurled rocks and bottles at the brave Border Patrol men and women protecting our nation. #2
The Border Patrol was correct to use non-lethal tear gas to break up the horde of invaders. They are defending our nation’s border from an invading force, complete with weapons, (however crude) and flying a foreign nation’s flag. #3

Chess: sophisticated, intelligent, strategic. Or is it? Mathematical brute force can win any game, but how much would you need? And would it ruin the game, or improve it?

This is the story of computer chess...
#TuesdayThoughts #Tech
#Chess is a zero-sum game: if a move is advantageous to one player it is disadvantageous to the other. It's also a perfect information game: all positions for each player are equally visible. So it wasn't long before people tried to get a computer to master it.
In #mathematics terms chess is combinatorial: each move generates a large set of branching possibilities for further moves, bounded by poor moves on the “bottom” and good moves on the “top". This approach provides the foundation for computer chess programmes.
