asciilifeform not actually expects to encounter 'La RĂ©sistance', where 'phd' is a pgp sig, 'dark academia'. there's afaik no evidence that such a thing exists, or could. but would like to believe, as the 'ufologists' do...

dulapbot: Logged on 2022-06-30 18:49:47 signpost: roger penrose recently melted my pleb brain with the question of what happens when there's nothing left in the universe but photons.
dulapbot: (trilema) 2016-12-01 asciilifeform: asciilifeform refers to this genre of writing as '10th-dimension', after infamous pseudoscientific b00k/www by same name, which consisted of highly refined 'imponade' (to borrow naggum's) , that is, writing designed to pull the reader's intellectual cock and give a sensation of 'profound insight', 'yes, NAO i UNDERSTAND FIZZZIX!' or similar.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-06-30#1109983 << where, asciilifeform would like to know, are the 'dark academia' bl0gz where folx picked up and revived e.g. physics before the vitalismtards fucked it ..?
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-06-30 18:50:11 signpost: there's a pretty terrible "interview" with him and jordan peterson somewhere, not really worth watching except for this.
dulapbot: (trilema) 2016-04-08 asciilifeform: i have 0 respect for the vitalist bohr.
dulapbot: (trilema) 2016-12-21 asciilifeform: have dispensed with ~100% of what used to be called fundamental method - incl. testability
asciilifeform: ... and minus the petersons, the martians, the schizos, et al
verisimilitude: I want a unicorn, asciilifeform.

vex: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-06-30#1110093 you'd have to bork the titration pretty hard to worry about actually blowing a seal, but have no preconceptions about what rabbits might be pulled, just know it's all good
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-06-30 21:56:59 asciilifeform: suspects that he could, perhaps, with sufficient lsd, e.g. fuck the pythagorean theorem, but prolly wouldn't meet any gods or devils. afaik only helps you 'pull out rabbits who are already in your hat'
