That excerpt from Søren Kierkegaard was interesting. I think we are both INFP. You are right that the way he is that he puts Christianity terms as a bad example. It does not help think of people as in the negative. The scale is not linear. People can be happy without tragedy. People can have a clear unconscious.
looks really cool, thanks, i think i'll give eden a try first
hmmm, i don't actually read that much science fiction, p k dick would have been my main recommend (the man who japed and the three stigmata of palmer eldritch in addition to the ones i listed in cb) apart from obvious stuff that you'll know already like huxley and orwell
the age of unreason by greg keyes was interesting, sort of alternate history science fiction, if i think of (remember!) others i'll post here
That's great. I don't remember the quality of the voice acting(i saw angels egg very long ago), but the soundtrack and the people spearing coelacanth shadows swimming across buildings...that...I remember all too well
Yeah I like how it is loaded with ambiguous religious allusions, and the lack of dialogue urges the viewer to notice little seemingly meaningless details like sudden amplification of sounds or changes in color templates etc. this interactive experience makes the film feel very personal
here's the complete ost btw(tracks 1,6, 12, 14 are the best imo, especially 14)
i started with ENTP. light is critic, dark is bully. ENFP light is enthusiast, dark is defeatist. going further inside the mind it should be possible to map them all.
maybe INTP light is the firm resistence to popular delusion, and dark is kneejerk opposition to any popular mode of thought.
the extra I/E subtypes aren't fleshed out at all. it was added when i convinced myself that the 8 functions or whatever they refer to are better understood without conceptual coo-mingling of I/E. for example i say Ne is challengig and Si is conservative, and that's enough to capture their essence. no need to mention I/E to explain this core psychic duality. anyway now i'm trying to imagine what the I/E proper subtypes could be.
i made a diagram of my new understanding of self reflective ai
i am going to code it in python and give it some data to learn
green is thalamus, blue is the cortex, cortex changes the inputs and outputs.
i need help with getting started, i need some data and start code to modify in blocks/modals
you can always add more to its abilities with memory but finite structure means it may encounter such situations where its generation is not new but to be creative in new ways means its understanding becomes more irreducible thus with multiple agents unpredictable.
Yeah Arcturus are great. Huun huur tu seemed pretty good, they also reminded me of Wardruna, a Nowegain folk band who also have quite interesting spiritual beliefs centered around ancient runes. They also stick to completely traditional instruments.
Also this is from a post I made to Polaris in one of the music threads to give you an idea of how diverse ulver are:
Do you know Ulver?
They've gone through massive genre changes and are one of my favorite bands.
Correct, I am. But I didn't necessarily mean you because it seems we already like a lot of similar music so the gap between new music wouldn't be so great to cover compared to someone, perhaps from a younger generation who would be musically less experienced.
Sorry this is part 2 of my post as I went over the character limit.
As for this younger generation you speak of, how old do you see me as and what are the distinctions?
I can spew all the music I like around but I think what you'll find is that the person has to be ready to listen and have a willingness to accept new music in order to appreciate it they way you or I or anybody else would. In terms of time spent and the musical journeys you've traveled in order to find the music you listen to, if this makes sense? Otherwise I feel throwing suggestions out feels out of context.
Thank you for your compliments and the electro black metal. I am currently giving it a second listen as I thoroughly enjoyed it the first time. My only qualm with it that comes to mind is the way the synths and guitars mix; as the synths are very clean sounding then to be mixed with guitars that lack in sound quality in comparison. I am well aware that the quality is to add to the atmosphere of the music, even though originally this wasn't the case. I just feel this is a slight clash rather than complimentary. Perhaps if it was either, recorded to a similar quality to the guitars, or they used more distorted synths then it may mesh more fluidly. This aside the music itself is well written with progressing distinct themes which seems to encapsulate a certain epicness to it, stemming any boredom I may otherwise find. Overall very appeasing.
I'ts in autumn now, will probably finish soon.
Will post update and upload save before the end of the weekend.
Made one or two stupid mistakes though, like channeling into the farms when building a bridge. Otherwise, food stockpiles have improved, with lots of meat and some fish worked into prepared meals.
Also busy upgrading defenses and digging deeper for lava, after installing devices that can block off the underworld.
Every Trait must have a Drawback, you choose the Drawback for your first Trait and I choose the second Drawback if you want a second Trait, you don't have to have any Traits at all (and thus no Drawbacks) if you so desire but be sure to tell me so I know.
If I'm incomplete in responding to your posts and there is something you'd really like a response on, please let me know. I'm afraid I'm a bit shotgun in my thoughts and not too methodical - yet still produce too much waffle. I really appreciate your arguments.
This issue is bigger than me. I was intending to only bring it up. The end of the thread was the result of trying to answer redbaron and was not a direction I had intended to go.
Anyways, I am less concerned with myself than I am with helping resolve some issues. I would rather get down and dirty, learn something and come out of it a better person than walking the same road all the time.
