Fun fact from today's 2 hours trip to the library
- In "three-nations" batik by Chinese-Indonesian of Java, a buttetfly motif is a masculine symbol
- A kind of singing bird can call each other by name
- Crows can make tools that can be mistaken to be manmade
- Birds are Really Smart
- A "private shool" in the US is a "public school" in the UK
- English's vocabulary is the biggest in the world. I guess I should stop blaming my native tongue for not being as versatile as English now hmm
Something about Karl Marx for my Politic & Business class
Reading up on Marx's Das Kapital and I'm having trouble understanding it but it seems that Marx believes that wage-labour is the only thing affecting the entire production and that machines simply enhance their work/give advantage to the capitalists who own it?
I always thought he'd be all for the "machines replacing humans therefore poor people will be out of work" perspective, but I guess that's still hard to imagine back then huh
There are stories where people look at our ruins and thought them hyper modern; something to aspire to (Cytus 2 for instance. More commonly "what will futute historians think" rhetoric"). I always thought them unrealistic although interesting takes.
Man, I was eaten alive by the notion of perpetual growth.
Ah well at least this is making me feel better about our eventual destruction of the planet. Something else will rise fron the ash. Maybe. /2
This article talk about a lot of things I take for granted since I'm studying college history, but it's really a good read if you're unfamiliar with the rise and fall of civilizations! And likes games.
One thing I didn't think about before reading it was how our civilization hasn't fallen in a long time. That's ominous. /1
