Bit of ketchuping if you ketch my drift.

Visited there once for a day, maybe 30+years ago. I don't recall, exactly, but think it was a pretty new college when I was there. So this probably isn't the Charlie you were looking for. (tell Jabba)


ChronosDragon wrote:Say, the comment about Gödel reminded me of a book I read not long ago. It's called Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, and it's a book which discusses a great many things that we've talked about here, including:
- Jabberwocky
- Self-similarity
- Zeno's Paradox
- Cage's 4'33"
- Artificial Intelligence
- A number of other topics which haven't been discussed yet, but probably will given the nature of this thread

It's a very good read, perhaps my favorite non-fiction book. I highly recommend it.


Congratulations to be reading that at such a tender age. Your future bodes well. Pass it on to HAL9000.

C.O.M.A.
(to the tune of Y.M.C.A.)
Spoiler:
Cuegan, why you hiking around?
I said Cuegan, can't you cover some ground?
I said Cuegan, now you're making us frown
Kind of spacing out and crabby

Cuegan, there's a thing you should know
I said Cuegan, soon we'll all have to go
Though we Wait here, we have needs of the mind
It shuts down for quite a good Time...

Yes soon we'll have to go C.O.M.A.
We all give in to that C.O.M.A
We can drink some caffeine (no semen to enjoy)
But we all know that's just a ploy

Yes soon we'll have to go C.O.M.A.
We all give in to that C.O.M.A.
We can stare at the screen
Think we have nerves of steel
But soon coma is all we feel

Cuegan, are you listening to me?
I said Cuegan, can't you get somewhere 3?
I said Cuegan, you can travel the streams
But you've got to know this one thing

Coma leaves us all overwhelmed
I said Cuegan, go discover a realm
And just go there, before C.O.M.A.
Forces all Timewaiters away

Yes soon we'll have to go C.O.M.A.
We all give in to that C.O.M.A
We can drink some caffeine (no semen to enjoy)
But we all know that's just a ploy

Yes soon we'll have to go C.O.M.A.
We all give in to that C.O.M.A.
We can stare at the screen
Think we have nerves of steel
But soon coma is all we feel

Cuegan, bring us out of our snooze
Bring us molpies, or some fancy new views
Build a castle, please don't leave us deprived
Before consciousness takes a dive

That's when we leave the OTT
Crying, "Cuegan, what have you done to me?
I've been putting off my C.O.M.A.!"
We're all feeling led quite astray

Yes now we have to go C.O.M.A.
We all give in to that C.O.M.A
We can drink some caffeine (no semen to enjoy)
But we all know that's just a ploy

C.O.M.A.
We all give in to that C.O.M.A
Cueball, Megan: Why you hiking around?
Cueball, Megan: Can't you cover some ground?

C.O.M.A.
Now we have to go C.O.M.A.
Cueball, Megan: Find some fancy new views!

astrocub wrote:They don't always line up, Rule110 coined the term interstitialism

I had maybe one stitch that was a confusing fit, the rest that were questionable were because of foliage not appearing in the previous frame. Otherwise, the pace of their walking sometimes seems to be awkwardly slow from frame to frame. But that could be a storytelling element where we get to see progress when the frames show the same scene, but the average speed is extrapolated from the progress of all of the scenes.

Main point: they always line up. I think the case of entering a new 2D slice is a factor for confusion.

Dracomax wrote: I beleive it is possible given enough time, for us to understand utterly the nature of the universe, and have no more left to learn about it. I'm glad I don't live in that time, however. how boring and sad it would be to know that every discovery has been dicovered, every point plotted, all things understood--for there to be nothing left to ponder, no experiments left to run. No Science left to do. I weep for the day we understand everything.


I disagree that it is possible for us to utterly understand the universe.

First, while every nuance may eventually be known, it will never all be known by any individual being and therefore each being will still have their own journey to understanding. Not to mention that each being would still have their inner thoughts and experiences, which can never be fully known and understood by another.

Second, the depth of understanding you speak of would essentially mean that our understanding would be the equal of the universe. Or possibly would be the universe itself; unfortunately my father is no longer able to help me understand the nuances of the case, but one of my daughters is working on getting the math to help me instead. [/bittersweet]

At best we (sentient beings, that is, in case there are others, or in case whoever we are at that hypothetical point can't technically be considered human) may eventually understand the concepts from which everything in the universe has arisen. I suppose at that point free will could certainly be considered moot (I do realize that, at the moment, some neuroscientists, philosophers, and physicists are asserting that free will absolutely cannot exist, but I choose to disagree with their conclusions) but I really can't imagine that there wouldn't still be the fascination of watching things play out exactly as the concepts decree.

Then again, I have the ability to enjoy sitting and watching a lava lamp for hours at a time, or the tiny drainage patterns made by wavelets around a rock, or the way cats smile when they sleep. Perhaps the Understanding Ones (assuming the universe has enough time for them to develop and acquire the understanding we're talking about) will have a similar childlike appreciation for endless iteration.

Woo! Finally caught up after over a weekip. It's been weird not being able to actively participate - even though my normal behaviour is to sit quiet and listen (also in the Outside) - since I felt that blindposting from 40-50 pages back was risky. And now that I'm here I have to coma, to try to fight back this damn cold a bit. [sneeze] So more ketchup tomorrow, I guess.

I had never seen it or even heard of it, and still the Molpy Grapevine version was hilarious; but knowing what it spoofs makes it even funnier.

Ahh yeah sorry, I just presumed most people would know it since it was a pretty popular viral video.

Actually, that should be "Temporary - former - original - deposed Unholy Anti-Pope...". For reasons discussed earlier, spamjam is now the anti-pope of that page. Sorry to bring such devastating news.

Hmm, yes, that does require changing now... I'll go for original. That's the least depressing one.

The squirpy-squirrel followed Cuegan up the mountain, hoping for dinner. The molpysnakeB followed the squirpy-squirrel up the mountain, hoping for dinner. The sparrow-raptor followed the molpysnakeB up the mountain, hoping for dinner.

Cuegan springs the trap they set between frames, capturing all the wildlife coming up the mountain and eating them for dinner. (I'm hungry, can you tell?)
