random highlights from passage prize stories I have read and enjoyed: a thread Image This one is good, but not very quotable. Excellent pacing Image

We are living in a scientific theocracy that has rejected both God and science.

This is possible because ideas are alive and they reproduce by influencing humans to spread them, and there's a sense in which ideas are bigger organisms than people, higher up the food chain An older version of this thought: the idée fixe—an idea becomes an object of fixation, and completely overtakes the person, til his mind is nothing but the idea. This is part of the theory of the idea as force: "people don't have ideas, ideas have people"

I'm just going say it: Women who use birth control are empty beer bottles. That's right, Jewel beetles would rather mate with a certain type of empty beer bottle than with females of their own species, because the design of the bottle confuses their mate-finding instincts An evolutionary mismatch occurs when the conditions that produced an adaptation are disrupted, and the adaptation is no longer beneficial. You can find other famous examples involving sea turtles and such. Bright lights confuse their hatchlings and can't find the ocean

Curtis Yarvin has posted some cring, but his core insights are critical for Americans to understand: our democracy doesn't work like you think, and even if it did, it wouldn't be good. Now Yarvin is becoming "mainstream" because the right has nowhere else to turn In a way it's a riff on an old joke: "if voting could change anything, they'd make it illegal." Yarvin's innovation, simple as it sounds, is taking this joke seriously, and convincing others to take it seriously, too

By posting a phrenology charts for every body part, I will convince the egirls to give me enough material to assemble a full nude.

Then I will draw green lines on it These are so good.

Sing o muse of Bronze Age Pervert, and use small words so peabrain academics and NGO astroterfs who bite our ankles can understand. We love BAP because BAP is a king, but what is a king? Moderns with atrophied souls have rarely encountered true regality in their lives At the root of so many failed modes of thinking is the inability to grasp the nature of authority: idiots and spiritual children see only its privileges but cannot fathom its obligations

My friends, it has been so long since we've had a heart to heart, and I've missed you.

This is my latest work, Don't Make Me Think, and I would like to apologize in advance to anyone who knows anything about neuroscience.

Please read it with an open mind… A central fixture of this story is a real, imminent piece of technology, the Neuralink device, though I have taken some license, of course.

The device is supposed to have full read/write capability. If it can predict how your limbs are positioned, what else can it do? ImageImageImageImage

This but it's gigachad and he reminds you to be based

"we're all gonna make it bro"

"the heaviest things we lift are not our weights but our feels"

"time to slonk some eggs"

"if those thots weren't so wicked, God would not have sent you to punish them" One way of thinking about paraphilia is that it's a scrambling or disordering of erotic desire.

Properly ordered eros is not a fetish, so a desire to impregnate women is not a fetish.

Courtly love only makes sense in a world where women are legally recognized as property, as one should always be gracious to his inferiors

The modern idea of chivalry only exists in romantic novels; it was primarily a matter of military and religious duty But who cares what a bunch of women think about the right way to date them is? Women literally have negative insight into how they themselves behave in mating games. The things they think work are anti-knowledge, and men who listen to them (on avg) fail to woo them

@Pseudomastix @GlobalJitterbug @17cShyteposter @Outsideness Literally that slide deck is crt @Pseudomastix @GlobalJitterbug @17cShyteposter @Outsideness Let me be a bit less flippant. Crt is critical theory applied to the topic of race. Critical theory is dialectical Marxism scrubbed of the talk about putting people in camps. The point of it is to deconstruct existing power structures in order to pave the way for Marxist utopia

We have watched each click of the ratchet, as mindless pod people tell us that each new change isn't really happening, it's a crazy conspiracy, and also it's good that it's happening. Have you ever seen Invasion of the Body Snatchers? Don't waste your time on any version but the original from 1956. It's a truly chilling film, one of the great classics of sci fi horror, and also a political allegory, as poignant today as it was then Image

This was written off the cuff so I will respond off the cuff. I use a more expansive definition of "folk religion" than gaitanalyst does here. When we think of folk religion we probably think about primitive people in jungles or remote islands, but it's just unorganized religion People have religious impulses that they will meet one way or another. In this thread I talk about my own personal model for social different needs people have and how they fill them with something practices that take on a "religious" nature

@Freakoutery @soulsweller @gordonr11430577 I mean look, I was reading moldbug back when he was writing UR, I'm well acquainted with the "crypto calvinism" hypothesis. I don't think it's a great lens, and I think moldbug's cladistic analysis is good but flawed. @Freakoutery @soulsweller @gordonr11430577 I was writing about this myself a year before that medium article. In my opinion, you go in circles for a while in the "it's a religion, we need to build a better one" rut and eventually you also come out the other side of that

@apex_simmaps @FlightAstral @egg_report @kaschuta this type of discussion will always be the parable of the blind men and the elephant. You all know it, and you've had the discussion many times. You are talking about the failure modes of a complex system, trying to pin it on a single root cause @apex_simmaps @FlightAstral @egg_report @kaschuta but the fact is that when something the size of the USA fails, it's because a whole lot of things went wrong and kept going wrong, and there is no single point that you can fix

I hear people say "right and left" are no longer coherent concepts. This is wrong but I see the temptation. The right lost bigly and no one wants to be on the losing team. How to get out of it? Oh, I know, the teams don't exist! Whew! That was a close one. Almost had to feel like a loser for a second there. Must protect the positive self-image at all times. I'm not joking, I really mean that.

Our ruling class has fully embraced the danger of information hazards. In fact, they have decided they are so dangerous that they now advise you to stop thinking all together. The WHO to advise that you wear a mask on your brain. An information hazard is a piece of true information that causes some harm to the person who learns it. Bostrom identifies six types hazardous information transfer: data, ideas, templates, signals, attention, and evocations.

One or /ourguys/, a tiny account, got doxed. It was obviously someone he knew who did it, and in response, he an heroed. So let’s quickly talk about opsec

Every single person who knows your secret is a liability, because they increase the surface area of attack This means you don’t tell anyone, ever, unless you would trust them to take your side in a life-and-death type situation. Because although that’s a bit dramatic, it really does approximate the stakes

My friends, I am expanding to Gab, though I will continue to post here. This place has become too insufferable, too fake, too hemmed in, and I have found it is harder to speak earnestly to you, because to be earnest breaks my heart When I look around me, I feel mostly contempt. I'm supposed to say contempt is a bad emotion, that it eats you alive inside, that it's noble to set these things aside and focus on the positive–but I'm not here to say what I'm supposed to
