Rise of the Slaughterbots
Rise of the Slaughterbots
Killer drones — or “slaughterbots” — are already conducting airstrikes without any humans involved in the decision making, according to a recent UN report. Again, not the piloting, the decision making. Computers are deciding who to drone strike. And that should have us really worried, a group of researchers argue in a guest post for IEEE Spectrum. “In so many words, the red line of autonomous…

Understanding Knowledge
We tend to view knowledge as an accumulation of facts and experiences.  To us, knowledge is separate from us.  We do not see the facts that I acquired in school has anything to do with me except as creating a skill that I can use.  Knowledge then becomes a spectrum we can measure to the amount of skill one has acquired, and the possibility and ability of collecting more skills. To me, personally, knowledge is something new.  I learnt something that moments ago I did not know.  But, someone else knew it before me.  We see knowledge as something being revealed, being discovered that we did not observed, nor known before.
That is not knowledge.  That is just memory training.  A collection of information.  Knowledge goes much deeper.  How does the source give us knowledge?  Before we utter in our brain a word, an idea, or a concept, we have a vague picture, an inkling, an insight, and this comes out of and from the source.  So, how does the source create inside of us knowledge?
What is actually knowledge?  The world is broken down into two parts: something is there, and something is not there.  Computers have either a 1 for being on, and a 0 for being off.  Either there is an “object” there, or not and is a “space”.  Whether if something is solid, or not, or is real, or any other characteristic does not matter.  Whatever it is, it is there, or not there.  This is the basis of our world.
When one watches a snail crawling, or the twitching of one’s finger, all we can observe are fractions of a second.  Which way will the snail move?  Which way will the finger twitch, left, right, up, or down?  In between each movement there are possibly millions of micro steps.  These micro steps we do not observe.  If we could, we would know which way and how far each movement would go.  We are left making assumptions and taking an educated guess.  We do not expect the snail to automatically fly away, or to slide ten feet a second.
Knowledge is this ability of observing all these micro steps. If all is known at one moment of time, then the next step, and the next interaction will be obvious and known. The universe is from moment to moment interacting with itself, the source.  Like entanglement.  At all moments of time and at all locations in space, the source is connected to each object, to each space, to itself.  That is knowledge!  Can not be broken down into anything further.  There is nothing to discover.  Nothing new to find as all interactions and characteristics are known.   A predetermination from having all the knowledge as to how every physical object interacts and all its characteristics.  Still, there is freedom, but it is known beforehand.
Knowledge is this ability.  When the source enters into ourselves, this ability comes with it.  Because of our desires, our habits, our certain views and concepts, we have created channels and blocked out other possible channels.  Some channels are wider and deeper than others.  We have then created a self-made world from our own choosing.  Our past  shapes our future patterns.
True knowledge is the breaking down of our self-made channels and pathways.  True knowledge is changing us, from one moment to the next.

Escape 360 trailer. One man, one camera, one goal...to capture the essence of adventure. An experimental, often abstract new type of filmmaking process creating color rich visuals combined with a lush soundtrack that grounds the project.  This impressive, kaleidoscopic experience tracks one man on a magical and unforgettable adventure film flush with one-of-a-kind cinematic moments from start to finish. A carefree, fun affirmation of why life is worth living

A fun thing you can do with the cantrip spell, shape water, is animate a continuously turning small water wheel for an hour, since the water needs to fit in a five foot cube, it can't be a big one, but given that it costs the casting of one cantrip and you can have two of the continuous effects happening at once, you can therefore animate a ten foot tall five foot wide column of water, and like, I'm not going to do the fluid dynamics because they fundamentally do not matter to the level of D&D's rules, but it's definitely an extremely simple technological achievement to extract *some* of that energy to do mechanical work, and what I am really getting at here is that with a pretty small population of wizards, sorcerers and druids capable of casting a literal cantrip, you could absolutely power a large city, either in terms of translating that into things like drop hammers and conveyors, or just demanding that your DM let you invent electromagnetism (less likely).

my mom’s friend is like. 3 inches away from starting some kind of full on anarchist commune in the woods behind her house. and i don’t think anyone but me realizes this
#this is related to the post from earlier this week abt clothes going to a refugee#its the same family friend shes just Collecting people without other places to go#like. a kid her son knew (not a friend to be clear just knew) got kicked out for being gay a few years back#and she was just like 'hmmm already have 7 kids whats one more?'#'o and his polish bf needs a place to stay you say?'#yes i have room for 4 foreign exchange students. this offer extends past when they return home if it ever comes up again...#'this is victor he's from spain' yeah but why and how is he in ur house???? where did you meet victor????#o ur aunts friends cleaning lady's niece is homeless? heres my number#its v admirable and i want to be her when i grow up!#(no i dont i want to b the hermit who lives in her backyard treehouse and helps out i cannot imagine willingly living with that many ppl)#but also. eventually i feel like theres only one place this ends. bc we have already established disregard for the law#esp when its potentially hurting ppl#also this sounds like travels happening in pandemic it isnt this is like a decades worth of incidents#mine#rambling#they are Not allowed to talk politics at brunch bc a DIFFERENT shelter mom#is like. 3 inches from going full libertarian living in the woods#(this is distinct bc one WANTS her ppl to be able to exist independently the other has ppl consisting of her family period.)#like she started her own school bc she hates common core so much#not homeschooling! her own school#the things holding her back from full ruby ridge include: her dad going to prison and me trying to trick her into becoming an abolitionist#inability to maintain mental health without brunch; her daughter also trying to pull her left in subtle ways
