Being An Adult

September 6th, 2017 Comments off

Well, the reason why young children speak in a very loud voice is because they seek their parents attention.

If not their parents then basically anyone (living) larger than themselves. It is not that complicated.

If, however the parent (most likely male) mimic the child? It is an extremely bad idea (as is screaming in general), A grown-up? Why would you want to do that?

Do you really think that parenting is a question of mimicking a child? A grown man screaming at a small child and “connecting”. Well, that is simply terrifying.

If that is indeed the case. Let me ask this simple question. Where do parents/adults originate from?

“Vadå? Slappna av, men du vet inte allt eller varför bryr du dig så mycket?” They are all relevant questions.

The answer will remain the same. I do care, alot, if no other reason because I have a child of my own. And the future is (discutingly) dependent on everyones behaviour and of your very own actions.

“Climate” or Gaia’s temperament, is an excellent example according to me. Actions do have consequences even on a global scale. It has never been so cold as this summer on the 58, it has never been hotter in continental Europe, no one living has ever seen so vilolent storms, ever?

And yet there are quite a few talking back. Apparently two more hurricanes have formed in the Atlantic. That makes four in less than two months. Not counting the ones in Asia.

I could not care less about my own generation’s faith. The young ones? Well, I am confident that you can guess the rest of my argument.

Are there further questions?

No, my profession does not involve children in any way. I work with words and machines. Being a parent it is not that hard. Do you believe so? Maybe you your priorities are not correct?

No, there is no excuse in this World for bad parenting. None, not society nor self-upbringing. Honestly, no one wants to hear about it, failing to recognize the basic concept concerning children.

They (yes, I do believe they are a collective in a sense) are the only innocent beings in this World. Every child is pure and has the potential of becoming an extraordinary human being.

Unrelated: my kitchen fan is producing an unreasonably loud sound. It should be a fan revolving at a constant speed. It is not revolving at constant speed at the moment and it is producing loud recurring sounds. Not unpleasant, but not optimal for being a kitchen fan.

Rationalism

September 5th, 2017 Comments off

The battle of the settling of being? “Well, why, do you even have to care about that?

Well, I can not just write/say “soul” can I? That’s simply not true. In modern terms since the 1500’s. Descartes and ongoing since then.

And I am not a man of the clerk am I? And I probably never will be. If you are religious well then it is very simply. And the rules are clear. So, I am clearly not addressing you.

The complexity and beauty of this uncomprehension of our World?

Most people believe in an immortal soul. Great news. Most of them believe in nothing or maybe in monetary things. That is just swell.

The discussion that has been taking place a couple of thousands of years or for ever if you prefer that…

If it is calculation then it can be reproduced. And then it will be reproduced. If it is not then is it something we can not do on purpose. Why is that important? It depends.

Are you are interested in the mind? Are you interested in how self-awareness emerges? Music, art or science? To me it is a fundamental question concerning humanity.

The maths genius ending up in prison, there are so many species on our earth very few compose, play piano, bass or any other instrument. And very few try to exterminate the other. Why is that?

Surpass. But, “Pinzin Kinzin” is made by humans. We still managed to kill 200 000 000 humans in 100 years? In wars. That is in Europe alone.

And now another religious war? Like 500 years in Europe was not enough. I am willing to fight. I have a child. Again? You must know about the wars in Europe. Please don’t.

Pick up a book or go to the library if you have one? I will fight till my dying day for democracy.

If my father was alive… He would have been horrified. You call yourself Africans and musulmans? You are a disgrace (Vous étés un Honte) and your mothers will never stop crying.

Technology will always be supreme (when everything burns, it was meant to be right. **** will).

Fine. So, technology is given to who by whom? Where does technology come from? It is destiny? Fire from the sky above? If kidnapping young girls is a plan. Well, then fire from the sky can be a plan?

Then, I say fire from the sky. You are supposed to ride or walk there if you can and be close to God. You have never been there. You have not even tried and you have never given a tenth. You have not even tried being a human. So you are condemned and you will be punished. Since you have not even tried you will be punched harder. Rightly so. You are worse than the non-believers. You desecrate the name of the Almighty.

My grand grand father erected the first Mosque ever (there is a reason why the other is called “Le Grande Mosque”) and now I have to experience this? You can go there, it is not that far? You want to make peace with the Almighty? You are welcome to confess in the Mosque that my ancestor built.

Please stop missuing the name of the Almighty.

Picture: It is a white square with a black frame. Black and white? Void. Fire from the sky? In the eye of the beholder, right? You know, freedom, you know freedom of speech and democracy and all that? Like jazz music? You remember?

I’m genuinely afraid that one of these days I’m going to wake up in a fascist state. Where I can’t express myself, read or write whatever I want. I wake up, I can’t speak and the text above is prosecutable. I worry. I worry about the of the future of coming generation.

Come On!

September 5th, 2017 Comments off

Son/Daughter!

It is meant to be entertaining (even though and said with emphasis, try being my son or daughter). Father and uncle can scream that: “Cooome on!” Father/uncle does, to all daughters and sons. Let’s all move on forward!

There is a category named “uncategorized” here on WordPress. Mm, that does not really make any sense to me. I have not given it that much thought. Until now.

What does that mean, I get confused, there is a default category that is defined as: “Uncategorized”? It is not “None”. So, what is the category of (all) “uncategorized” things and why is not “None”?

What is it? Semantics? The category of all uncategorized things? It does not mean anything. It is void of meaning. It is far from trivial too me and I was wrong again.

Language? The question is not if Orwell or Bradury got it right. (They both did). So did Transtömer.

We live in: “A Brave New World” and not “1984”. We do not live in a totalitarian state (1984).
We live in a state of personal pleasure (A Brave New World). The confusion lies in: “New Speak” (1984), a very powerful concept that has manifested itself many times.

But the missuse of language is not the central theme, alfa and beta people says Raybrady (if I can remember correctly) and indivudual pleasure/selection…

The stark distinction has been pointed out to me by a dear friend. A friend with a sense of detail that is unlike any other.

The short story? Everybody says “1984” but it is not. “Now”, is not “1984”, it is “A Brave New World”. Is that important? Yes, I think that it is extremly important.

I assume that it muche easier to handle a pure totalitarian system.

The distinction between “1984” and “A Brave New World”. Is important to me. The outcome may be same but we do not live in a totalirian state as depicted in the novell 1984. We live in another novell. Always all boys and men… Let’s include Boye’s “Kallocain” and Lessing’s work. Mm, at least one of the had political convictions… and they all originate 40’s to early 50’s it may tell you something?

The reading made the world look different to me… it litteraly changed my perspective and has done so through out my entire life.

I did read Asimov and I wanted to beleive him then. And actually I still do. The machines will rectify everything.

We Are Free

August 31st, 2017 Comments off

You get to decide? You are in charge and the master of your own life? You get to decide what you want to believe in?

It took more than 2000 years to establish the system.

This concept does not apply to the organised religious ones, then again they already have the answer. So no, I am not addressing the organised ones.

Well are you in charge of your own life? The question is simple enough? And I am sure it is not the first time you have heard it.

Have You Ever Applied For 50 In A Single Day?

August 31st, 2017 Comments off

Well, have you? The question is simple enough, no? Is it unpleasant? I would say so. Is it disturbing? I would tend to agree.

Is it a reality? For some it is. Could it pose a problem in the long-term? Yes, I would imagine that it very well will do so.

– Why is that?
– Well, our entire society is built on that very same principle?
– “Principle”? What does that mean? What does “principle” signify?

Three weeks into the semester and the school building is not even close to being finished. No, I am not being funny.

It is literally not finished. That is they have not finished building it. And the there is nothing more important than going to school.

I am super happy and overwhelmed with joynees with the the whole thing/everything actually.

A Small Advice Too Those Who Will Follow Us

August 31st, 2017 Comments off

When playing music that you like. Never start maxing out, start at 50% and then increase incrementally.

– Even if it is my favourite track?

– Yes, you will want to have something more for later on. If you start at maximum? There will not be anything to take from.

You will want to play louder* and eventually max it all out. It doesn’t matter if it is your headphones or something else pushing.

You will want to have full immersion. Trust me.

Physics, you know? There are limits and boundaries that can not be broken in our Universe. You know like 299 792 458 m/s. The speed of light is a constant.

* So, it is a somewhat internal language/sound joke. Sound is a physical thing by definition. It is a wave of energy that propagates through a medium. The medium can be anything. It could be water, oil or any other substance usually when referring to humans it is air. “High” is pitch and “loud” is energy. Lesson learned.

No matter, when you have listened for a while and you still can crank the dial? When you have 30% (not physically, but as a matter of speaking) left?

Then turn the dial gradually and keep pushing! A word of caution is in place, don’t impair your hearing. ie don’t play to loud. Once impaired it is impossible to fix.

Marche Ou Crève Or Is It Simply The Fire?

August 27th, 2017 Comments off

Well, it is all the same thing really . Bass culture.

I have wondered, will it ever end? That is, will my sentiments ever change? I can now say with certainty that is not going to happen. It will not never ever happen. Never. Why is that? Write me.

“You will have to let it go.”. No, I will not. More than wwo decades? That is ridiculous. More than 20 years? Come on!

I have been suspecting that much, for quite some time now. Yet, I may have underestimated the overall effect of the breaks. I was a young boy then and I am far from being one now.

Actually I may even like them more now. More than I did in my youth.

Bass. “Run [it] as a soldier, run like a rude boi.”. It is not a gender thing. Bass is a spiritual thing. The more the better. Maximise the bass.

So, I have reached the point of no return? Fabio & Grooverider? Every day and all day long!

The fire is burning. This is post number 444 and the picture is: http://www.allwhitebackground.com/fire.html

The fire! What is it? This is the fire The Plastician. The Fire.

Take Care Of Them

August 24th, 2017 Comments off

At first it always looks so straight forward and easy.

Recovery in Spanish (I don’t read Spanish).

It is just another machine and it is like every other machine? Right? It is never like that. Everything was made to do something? The World is a machine.

It starts and it stops. It talks in a different languages? The hidden complexity? It is an old argument? Indeed it is.

If consciousness is a physical product (if the networks of neurons in a human brain are creating it)? That network must be analysable?

If it is indeed a physical thing, then it should also be observable? Both in principle and in in detail.

I can touch the perimeter of my brain. My skull? It feels very physical to me. Yet, I can manipulate it quite easily and vice versa. No.

Then, there are major problems or issues or what not. Language, hardware or other problems. I may lack experience? Then, the nightmare starts. “A machine configured like that?”. Will it even start, will it boot? Did I back-up everything? Did I keep all of the +150 000 files? What will happen when I apply this executable?

The machine will eventually start if you haven’t made any mistakes and it is not broken. Otherwise it will not start. The backup alone took 8 hours. Downgrade and reinstall? Will it work or not? I don’t know, I’ll know when and if it reboots. Then I will know. I for one sure hope so.

So many hours spent. And the machine is still not ready. “Downgrading” took 8 hrs. Copy will take another 8 hrs… Many hours.

Let’s see… In 1983 or something like that and for many following years I just liked them, like “toys” (double meaning well, there was a taggin’ crew in Stockholm way back then… and their tag was “Toy”.

Will it boot (FYI: it did eventually do so)?

The Cmd Center?

August 22nd, 2017 Comments off

It looks like this when operational.

Whatever you do, do not get involed in anybody’s personal hardware.

Not computer, phone or any hardware whatsoever, you will get in major trouble and it will take up a lot of your precious time. It is unbelievable. It makes me wonder…

As far as I can tell there is nothing wrong with this particular computer. Apart from the battery and the charger.

I have replaced them all. The harddrive (it is a word that I really like, changed them in my MAC and Ipod though, SSD).

I switched harddrive and it was working fine. I switched back? Then, all hell break loose.
