    Linguistic ambiguities and nonsense phrases etc

    Ignorant to me means what the word would lead you to think it means, IE the thing or person doing the ignoring. Like determinant, only I haven’t seen ignorant used as a noun.

    No Future for the GOP?

    Wonder what @vimothy thinks here.

    No Future for the GOP?

    I also think one of the critical challenges here is A) devising business models that doesn't tacitly assume some course of indefinite growth, but rather aim for an equilibrium within a given market context, and B) supporting the adoption of such business models. The former point can perhaps be...

    No Future for the GOP?

    I still suspect the real tide shifts (no pun intended) have to emerge organically within the private sector, perhaps specifically within the American tech sectors, for any enduring systematic change to be made. I get intimations of this from the various institutional gestures toward the green...

    new cold war?

    Of course one can make such ventures and then still return near enough to where one started, a sort of ideological boomerang.

    new cold war?

    Yeah I was gonna say, I’d imagine we progressives are almost definitively more heterogenous, along the lines of how differentiated cells are more heterogeneous than undifferentiated cells. With differentiation here being the critical reflection and interrogation of one’s native, immediate...

    No Future for the GOP?

    My understanding is that EOs are just calls to action for agencies within the executive branch to take certain actions within their powers allotted by congress. Did the Biden administration make some EO that went against this, re: carbon emissions?

    new cold war?

    I'd like to, seeing as I can work remotely anywhere. Maybe Switzerland?

    new cold war?

    No, I've never left the continent. Been to Canada couple times.

    new cold war?

    Even within this milieu, including those with greater technical literacy than have I, there is a certain relative parochiality in terms of grokking the sheer scope of what is being undertaken, and beyond that the marvelous complexity of the situation of conscious matter.

    new cold war?

    It's worth bearing in mind that I occupationally, nay vocationally, traffic through the zenith zone of the unevenly distributed future, and I'm starting to take things for granted that most will not become aware of for some amount of time on the order of years, maybe low decades.

    new cold war?

    Could be wrong though, of course.

    new cold war?

    I point out the intellectual asymmetry to dispel any notion that I see these two sides as equipotently amounting to any kind of dualistic balance. I think in the long term (IE on the order of centuries, climate permitting) the likes of MAGA will fall by the waysides of the evolutionary fitness...

    new cold war?

    Truth in this sense can be mythic, whereas factuality is minimally tolerant of myth.
