mircea_popescu: if indeed the relation's extensible, then from the fact that literature was born balanced and math balanced in say 2500 years, we can reasonably expect computerism to also balance in 6`250`000 or thereabouts, meaning more or less year 6`250`950.

BingoBoingo: Until it's their turns to get sacrificed as the cultural revolution marches on.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: exactly like the chinese cultural rev. (which shut off like a lamp when mao flicked switch) this one is a 'controlled burn'.
BingoBoingo: I suspect English doesn't allow "controlled burns" in the way Mandarin does
asciilifeform: cattle stampeding (all the way into meat plant conveyor) aint 'cattle running the farm', the farm is still a farm and farmer is still the farmer, and meat still grown for market.
BingoBoingo: Bulls still cripple the occasional farmer who turns their back. Grain lifting augers maim quite a few farmers. The fallout from Gawker et al. is that there isn't really much farming going on at the left farm.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: this so, but observe that present-day china is run 100% by (sons of) folx who sat in gulag during 'cultural rev'. and not of the 'red guards'.
asciilifeform: exactly as happened in sovok, the leninists had 0 lasting dynastic succession, ~100% garbagecollected by stalin & co.

asciilifeform: this being said -- will be interesting to see which 'bob beck' is crowned as 'new rms'.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Mandarin allowed honoring Mao-think as a sort of A/B test, and allowed the revision to be popularly embraced. Something about Mandarin lets the Chinese be cohesive on just about anything. It's weird, alien, and seems rather far removed from what is in the Anglo language toolbox.

asciilifeform: internal usg turf war. google-crapple-et-al miffed that some trickle from printing press still went to the 90yo's at mit 'ai lab' .
asciilifeform: episode, at least from my perch, is reminiscent of the undeclared 'civil war' in early '80s sovok b/w kgb and mvd .
asciilifeform: ( kgb -- won ; andropov -- crowned; purged the 'principled' folx, proceeded to do all he could to blow up the pylons on which stood sovok, but croaked promptly, adopted prince gorby was left to ineptly finish up the job )
asciilifeform: kgb -- for n00bs -- was ~100% staffed with folx who pissed on whatever oaths, principles, and wanted to proceed asap with converting their keys-to-the-shop into hereditary 'property right' .
asciilifeform: $process of course did not start with andropov. but with the derps who poisoned stalin, who was , near as i can tell, gettin' ready to purge the 'party elite' an' replace it w/ the young, vigorous folx who did loyal wetwork for him earlier.
asciilifeform: the poisoners -- 'drew quicker'. removed his chosen successor and his wot ; and proceeded to start sawing apart the house and sell to foreigners, feather miami nests.
asciilifeform: '91 was simply culmination of this process, when pretense fell away.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i.e. putin is ~exactly rms
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: And Clinton sold Uranium to Russia. People trade in the metals all the time.

snsabot: Logged on 2018-12-01 15:45:29 mircea_popescu: the "consummer affair" is the gringo's exact version of the "thinking man gave up", coming 2 decades later. (ie, next generation of ustards copied prev generation of soviets. like they always do, btw)
asciilifeform: so, was hero, nao zero ? why ?
asciilifeform: ( re gabbard )
mircea_popescu: i should prolly have a better link, there's somewhere in the logs where we discuss this mystery, of why and wherefore soviet thinking man simply laid over and gave up in the 80s.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Tried to de-Clintonize too soon. The losers have to hate.
mircea_popescu: the flow of history doth in fact inform and ground the view, however. "what happened to phf ?!" is not so important about the one tard ; but rather, instructive as to the failure mode of a sort of mind.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'gave up' in '70s, when the 'party elite' sys solidified into an obviously hereditary aristocracy (populated by not esp. bright folx, at that)
mircea_popescu: i suppose what happened to all of them is the same thing : one day their derealization came home to roost, and they were so alienated from their own existence, they hadn't actually prepared for the event.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, it's not clear to me what you're asking above ?
asciilifeform: re gabbard ? possib. BingoBoingo already gave answr.
asciilifeform will admit that he does not follow the muppetshow in realtime

mircea_popescu: anyway, far from "oh, kgb sold off sovok", the fundamental problem was simply that soviet man ~gave up~.
mircea_popescu: the thing it gave up on was garbage collected through whatever method. but the causative agent was THAT GIVING UP.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: lol! reminds of 'britain-poland mutual defense treaty' of 1930s
BingoBoingo: As DNC high elder Gabbard declared Clinton's brand too toxic to try rigging the game around. Was shunned. Then TMSR broke DNC couple months later.
mircea_popescu: why and wherefore he gave up, i do not know.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's in the link
asciilifeform: aaa lol!
BingoBoingo: Or more, the Qntra text
asciilifeform: indeed is
mircea_popescu: but, to round it off : the substantial difference between 2nd socialism and 3rd socialism is that 2nd ~actually had enough substance~ to constitute something someone could give up ~on~.
mircea_popescu: 3rd never did.
mircea_popescu: its failure therefore, to my eye, is not in any sense meaningful, there's no zoon involved. it's pure and simple bion, a matter of fermentation rather than politics.
mircea_popescu: which is why the sun reference. there's no possible way the hydrogen atoms "could organize themselves" to do anything to or about the brown dwarf future. it's foretold, and will be exectued exactly at foretold, millions of years hence.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: plox to colour in the picture -- who were 1, 2, 3 ?
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2015/the-triviality-of-slaying-the-surviving-socialist-beast/ << nazi, soviet, roosevelt.
asciilifeform: i'ma guess 3 -- clitler , 2 -- sovok, 1 -- bismarck ?
mircea_popescu: here's the story, as retold by yours truly :
mircea_popescu: the italians were being administered by the house of habsburg, because they were idle imbecile fuckwits throughout their existence.
mircea_popescu: being idle imbecile fuckwits and regrettably still around as well they shouldnt', the italians deeply resented this situation, where the austrians administered them well as slaves, whereas they themselves couldn't, on their own strength, as much as organize a cup of coffee
mircea_popescu: the unfairness of this situation wasn't, mind, that they were imbeciles, but that ~it is unfair~ that ~THINGS SHOULD BE SO~!!!!
mircea_popescu: because they're "great people" in the sense of latins, 2k years prior, had been. so their team already won, why should they have to do work! REALITY IS UNFAIR!!!
mircea_popescu: to "fix" this by their own lights, they came up with a wad of poisonous inept bullshit, to their best estimation perfectly engineered to end -- not the world, not the need of the world to be managed, but the ~possibility of managing it~, in-universe fantastically called "habsburg rule'/
mircea_popescu: this fruited among the lesser barbarians in three places : in germany through cultural osmosis, producing the thing copied after musolini
mircea_popescu: in the us through the italian diaspora, producing roosevelt and his nonsense, "bipartisan state" bla bla.
mircea_popescu: and in the soviets, who copied it from the germans they defeated.
mircea_popescu: but, the birth of "altruism" is the red thread in the whole pile of idiotic italian nonsense : mid 1800s is where it all starts.
mircea_popescu: there wasn't a socialism before all that ; and there won't be a socialism in the future.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i thought it started in stone age, where 'fair', i.e. can't effectively make a usable-later pile of ~anyffin
asciilifeform: and attempts to copy same
mircea_popescu: something like pantsuitism started in stone age, then man discovered pike
mircea_popescu: and pike changed society from matriarchy to patriarchy, because provided effectual control to female wail behaviour : poking with sharpened stick.
mircea_popescu: then things osciallated back and forth.
mircea_popescu: but, in general, pre-heroic age social degeneracy was resolved by early greeks.
mircea_popescu: pike really was much more important instrument than commonly realised. i would say it was the first AND FOREMOST man-made tool.
asciilifeform: pike, seems , wasn't quite enuff, cuz it dun stab by itself, need pikeman with a bit of sense in his head
mircea_popescu: specifically because it puts the female herd in line, turning them from "free" to slave.
mircea_popescu: that it does, and that is as it should be.
asciilifeform: ( consider root of pantsuit's fixation with 'robotic soldier' )
asciilifeform: or what meant 'frag' in 'nam
asciilifeform: aha! ty mircea_popescu , was digging for that same piece
mircea_popescu: mah pleasure.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: re 'face derealization' / 'they gave up, why' -- i was reading not long ago about keldysh (head of sovok academy of sciences, and overall respectable figure, in charge of ~100% of calculative works for space / atomic programs etc. ) BUT at same time is the fella who undertook 'let's ditch native comp archs and copy pdp'. seems like was a checkmate, rather than 'dolchstoss', saw no working alternative , 'we can't affor
asciilifeform: d to stick with 1960s state of art while west has pdp'
mircea_popescu: suppose i said "we can't afford to make new loggers yet again" ?
mircea_popescu: was alternative : goes to politburo, says "either you start hanging 10% of youth each year until they produce alternative, or else we can all hang today"
mircea_popescu: decimation works.
asciilifeform: sure as fuck worx, 1934-1953 worked a+++. but then the 'soft' folx came, and forgot how.
mircea_popescu: but, as you say : pike has one design flaw. IT GOTTA BE USED
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-17 15:23:12 asciilifeform: pike, seems , wasn't quite enuff, cuz it dun stab by itself, need pikeman with a bit of sense in his head
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, this takes us back round to the question : why gave up ?
mircea_popescu: and yes, "to give up" as the reality is disguised in-universe, in the works of fiction populating stupid heads, as "can't"
mircea_popescu: "can't affort", "isn't proper", "this guy's abusive", what have you.
mircea_popescu: what of it ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as you said earlier, prolly similar to how phf threw in towel. i.e. 'i racked up 9 figures of stupidity bill, no way to pay'
mircea_popescu: the question is WHY, not in their terms but in mine, as the onl ypermisible terms. not "why does the moron decide to misrepresent his taks as impossible", but "why did he give up"
mircea_popescu: this slippery slope of idiocy, "i really should have beaten the wife, but since i haven't, can't now beat daughter".
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu actually had piece on this subj. where mentioned 'dragon'. i.e. at some pt the lamer's task becomes factually impossible, after tall enuff pile of fuckup
mircea_popescu: moterfucker -- beat them both twice.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, the failure in this thinking is that "smart boi wants to use his smarts in war".
mircea_popescu: the precondition to action is NOT some sort of evaluation whereby action's salutary, or effectual.
mircea_popescu: you do what you have to do.
mircea_popescu: that is IT.
mircea_popescu: whether "you think it'll work" or not makes zero the fuck difference.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: found it, fwiw
asciilifeform: grr wrong select tho
asciilifeform: lemme retry..
mircea_popescu: i suppose.

BingoBoingo: Anyways the "Qaseth-1" drones the Saudis got hit with seem pretty lulzy. Chicom mower engine, 250 km one-way range... and how useless was all hardware the US sold the House of Saud to stop them.

mircea_popescu: holy shit nonsense.
mircea_popescu: the amusing part being that leaving aside his damning failure to show up, rms wouldn't have made it five minutes in the forum on the basis of his absent culture, literacy or generally speaking working cns.
BingoBoingo: But yes, the absence of culture is a pre-requisite of elevation in the Incan insanity. Can't have "luminaries" tethered to the world or their place in it. MIT is more or less a sort of "day program" for "special" adults.
BingoBoingo: So what if they gotta call him a "visiting scientist" to get him to institutionalize himself?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not so many 80yo d00dz have working cns. ( ~possibly~ rms circa 1990 would have been ~interesting in forum. but this ? fungus )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: found the rms item btw : was apparently 1st mentioned in ciphrogram, here repgp'd back to mircea_popescu for ref . ( then afterwards mircea_popescu summarized briefly in log. )
asciilifeform: 5 april 2015 .
asciilifeform: dunno whether this is of any current-day interest to mircea_popescu , but there it was.
asciilifeform: summary in log, iirc was : asciilifeform wrote to rms re the 'libnss' garbage preventing static linking of glibc. rms 0 reply. but when mircea_popescu wrote, rms answered w/ jwzisms.
asciilifeform: in the end asciilifeform cut out glibc entirely, and never again gave a shit re whether it is fixed or not.
asciilifeform: rms, imho, richly deserves to reap errything he has sown.
asciilifeform: ( and imho is in fact the single most easily identifiable face that is answerable for us being stuck w/ unix to this day, at that )
