The title of the quantum novel is _The Mechaniqs_ (as in "quantum mechanics"), and it's being revealed gradually in ecosteader threads:

ecosteader.com/@indie/10226941

The prequel really starts in ~2013 or so, but a huge portion of the story got erased. A result is that a significant aberration occurred in the fall of 2016.

Of course it can't be "non-political"; mechanics are, after all, about the distribution of power: real and imagined.

A long overdue intro to the Fediverse... I Quit Twitter in May 2017 after realizing its role in birdshitting on democracy.

Finally finished building my own Apache-friendly Mastodon instance. Since I am a FIRM believer that topic-based discussion (( ❀️ reddit)) is better than the cult of personality, I'm designing @ecosteader.com to facilitate topic-based ecoLOGICAL discussion about our planet in peril. Hope to recruit @elonmusk, @WilWheaton and maybe... offer some support to

Authoritarianism is frequently born directly from Anarchy; both elevate those who wield brute weapons into position of power with lack of accountability. Anarchy and Authoritarianism are both underlined by their mutual lack of accountability.

Sure, it sounds hip and cool to call yourself an "Anarchist", but that's not what we're about here.

Anarchy destroys order and makes it easier for utilitarian forces to overtake passive ones.

Let's destroy anything that sets the stage for dictatorships.

Embrace #EcologicalDemocracy that puts shared soil first.

@elonmusk Well as Bala would say, sometimes the sum times ; sometimes the sun times itself.

Ecosteaders CAN build with ideas that don't involve crimes, and they WON'T with people who do crimes in, with, or for governments.

Who has a list of "instances in poor taste", such as kink.town? I tested a relay and see the firehose here, and want to do some preemptive expulsions to keep Ecosteader safe.

Salesforce is the evilest of all; it's running many malicious actors fosstodon.org/@ecosteader/1018

#ProjectVesta wants to use the accelerated-breakdown of olivine to battle excess carbon...

"Project Vesta is a project to sequester carbon dioxide (CO2) by accelerating the weathering of a type of rock called olivine. When olivine interacts with water and the CO2 dissolved in it, it creates a bicarbonate solution that marine animals like corals use in their shells. The CO2 remains locked in that form and eventually settles as sediment or turns to limestone rock on the sea floor.

Olivine is a volcanic rock and one of the most abundant minerals on earth, making up over 50% of the upper mantle. It is also cheap, at less than $25 per ton, and each 1 ton of olivine that breaks down from weathering, sequesters 1.25 tons of CO2.

The issue is that the vast reserves of it are all underground. So our plan is to mine olivine and accelerate its weathering by using wave motion to tumble the rock. We imagine a global network of green sand beaches to turn the tide on carbon dioxide induced climate change."

Working on a fork of Mastodon that can make topic-based search & discussion more thoughtful for participants of a discussion... Code on GitHub @ github.com/indie/mastodon . The old site had what mastodon calls "toots"; concepts were more organized ideas in a topic-based context. Rails 3.2.17 and Ruby 1.9.3
