I think we have to assume that a nervous system is an information processing system or a kind of computer. and that any information processing system over a random level of complexity is capable of hosting a mind.

I tend to take it as red that we live in a simulation but the idea that we are in some kind of fish tank, like that we are the point of or important to the simulation we live in kinda absurd.

have you ever been in a local supermarket in an unfamiliar town

and seen a bargain bin DVD rack

and been convinced all these movies are being procedurally generated as you gaze upon them, having never existed before and never to exist after?

it definitely helps that the lime green aesthetic is my jam.

I am setting up a to use a wifi network because I don't think my DHCP server is overstressed enugu yet, it's really striking how nice is. just wishing the raspberry pi wasn't so slooooooow.

been dreaming about live wallpapers on my desktop since I learned android supported it, just on a platform where battery and performance isn't an issue.

a friend gifted me this live wallpaper software and I love it, the only problem is now that paranoid voice in the back of my head keeps going on about live wallpapers being the most ideal delivery platform for malware.

Fun facts about #chickens.

* hens can count up to 6, from left to right
* chickens like to watch TV and can learn from other birds on the screen
* chickens use 30 distinct calls that they start learning from inside the egg
* they can recognise up to 100 faces even after months of separation
* understand the concept of delayed gratification, a sign of self-awareness

There's a difference between pearl-clutching/"this offends my sensibilities" and "this reinforces negative stereotypes about an underclass and emboldens the people who want to dehumanize them and cause them harm", and it's blinkered and reductive to hold them both under the umbrella of "offensive".

We already know that automated content filters don't work. They put absolute power over content in the hands of a system that is opaque and broken.

A couple of days ago YouTube took down all of the Blender Foundation's videos from the Blender Foundation's channel due to a copyright claim by... the Blender Foundation.

The BF is an official YT partner, but days later they still cannot get a straight answer from YT about what is going on:

Everytime I hear something like "it's not for pussies", it reminds me the time I was a pre-teen, and put a "Girls Not Allowed" poster I got from a box of ceral, on my room's door.

That's how childish it sounds.
