I've locked my account and updated my profile because I'm not the official artist anymore and I don't think I can contribute here in general due to stress and my personal life being a bit of a sewage fire. Thanks for your feedback on, and kind words about, my art here

how some minds react to adversity 

I've done a lot of psych reading lately, and the idea that somebody might get #PTSD from comparatively "mild" #trauma such as a breakup or work conflict is no longer the least bit surprising to me.

I also read a theory about the basis of #dissociation which was rooted in an understanding of #attachment in early childhood. It made a fair amount of sense and was also pretty creepy.

I hope to post some summaries of my findings soon.

Some people tend to get depressed because their brains are biologically tuned to be better at perceiving and focusing on negative information in the environment.

Living in a hostile environment is particularly bad for these people. Interestingly, there is some evidence that living in a supportive environment is particularly *good* for these people.

Many "risk" genes for mental illness may be more accurately described as genes which make people sensitive to the environment, for better or worse.

3d model representations in order of elegance:

very good: signed distance fields, isosurfaces
ok/workable: quad meshes, triangle meshes
work of the devil: point clouds, marching cube remeshing

Cyberpunk was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual.

AAA game dev is built on an endless flow of kids passionate enough to destroy themselves making the next Call of Duty.

The next generation of college grads grew up playing Minecraft instead, shrugging at their dads' weird gun games.

Good luck with that hiring pool, Activision.

The paradox of productivity in 2018 is even if you're writing a quantum tech article whilst simultaneously dogwalking, podcasting your fourth Ph. D, & inventing the next revolutionary drudge-work-automating app (that will be consumed by a tech giant), you'll always be making not-enough per hour for a dignified existence.

No amount of neurohack pills, 180-hour crunches and AI assistants will ever free us, because neofeudal capitalism will consume all abundance.

The wheel must break.

Reminder that
• Pong was not the first computer game
• Pong wasn't even Atari's first arcade game, that was Computer Space, which was a clone Spacewar!
• Pong was also a clone
• Pong's only "first" was being commercially-successful

@tom This "reality distortion field" seemed to manifest spontaneously, sometimes only affecting small objects.
