00:00:25 asciilifeform: this was mostly understood by the enthusiasts around a decade ago, but some of the response was also pathological: 'let's bolt on a huge turd of a standard library'

00:00:33 asciilifeform: which the 'official committee' did

00:00:46 asciilifeform: landing in a kind of 'worst of both worlds' valley

00:01:28 asciilifeform: scheme remains 1) a very clean scripting language to embed in another proggy 2) a very spiffy starting point for a future lisp (including hardware)

00:02:23 asciilifeform: and 3) great student exercise, where the kids won't demand to hear why both 'elt' and 'nth' exist (perennial retardation example from cl, which was born in a 'no vendor left behind' multi-turdculturist compromise)

00:03:12 asciilifeform: the original scheme ~standard~ is <50 pages.

00:03:23 asciilifeform: of reasonably large text.

00:03:35 asciilifeform: a ~reasonable~ scheme is about 1000 lines of c.

00:03:57 asciilifeform: (half of this if you're willing to forgo informative error handling, and some of the more difficult features like 'call/cc')

00:05:17 asciilifeform: https://github.com/catseye/minischeme << well-known example.

00:05:18 assbot: catseye/minischeme · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1JS42CI )

00:07:36 asciilifeform: scheme 'fits in head.'

00:07:53 asciilifeform: https://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book.html << device for fitting it into a head

00:07:54 assbot: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs ... ( http://bit.ly/1gkcUVL )

00:08:03 asciilifeform: ... of computer programz.

00:08:12 asciilifeform: ^ mega-b00k

00:08:51 asciilifeform: phun phakt: when it appeared, american schools began to use it as a mandatory undergrad textbook. and you can measure precisely when each school turned full-bore retard by ~when they stopped~

00:09:16 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-11-2014#920453 << that sussman

00:09:45 assbot: Logged on 12-04-2015 02:22:02; asciilifeform: re: the mit thing:

00:10:16 asciilifeform: mit (the home of sussman and the original arena for this) officially became irredeemably doomed in my eyes when they stopped.

00:11:09 asciilifeform: the book (lovingly referred to as sicp, 'sick pee') is a textbook illustration of precisely what i mean when i say 'fits in head'.

00:11:56 asciilifeform: (describes not scheme per se, but walks the student through implementing scheme in scheme, and then implementing a detailed simulator for a machine which is the intrinsic minimum for executing scheme.)

00:12:43 asciilifeform: the subject swallows own arse, and either disappears in a flash of gamma rays, or becomes an adult computerist

00:16:29 nubbins`: hi

00:17:09 asciilifeform: hi nubbins`

00:17:27 nubbins`: what's new?

00:17:36 asciilifeform: not much

00:17:39 asciilifeform: but it's all in the logz.

00:17:57 nubbins`: no kidding, hey.

00:19:42 nubbins`: i designed some posters this week: http://imgur.com/a/QhwUN

00:19:42 assbot: Shed Island 2015 Posters - Album on Imgur ... ( http://bit.ly/1gketTz )

00:23:47 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-08-2015#1229626 << at -ev? thing is, nobody ever invented 'reasonably priced electronics sold to sane people.' that is, no one has ever demonstrated the economic feasibility of this. the only kinds of computer sold in perhaps 25 years were: a) sold to chumps buying forced 'pr0gr3ssss' and b) so expensive everyone shits his pants

00:23:47 assbot: Logged on 07-08-2015 22:54:22; mircea_popescu: i'll take over the us fed and run it from right here, and if there's nobody else i'll take over fucking china silicon and run it from right here too. what in the ever loving fuck.

00:24:22 asciilifeform: see also the old thread re: how no one ever, to date, non-fraudulently financed the production of a bitcoin miner.

00:25:35 asciilifeform: if mircea_popescu suddenly feels like commissioning the production of an ic from own personal lunch money, who am i to discourage

00:25:55 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4721 @ 0.00058309 = 2.7528 BTC [-]

00:26:44 asciilifeform: but this is very different from how the computer on everyone's desk was built

00:27:19 asciilifeform: and if attempted with any kind of scale, will make plutonium look cheap and plentiful in comparison.

00:28:04 asciilifeform: summary: nobody knows how to make selling computers +ev without the millions-of-planktonous-idiots market being involved somehow

00:28:42 nubbins`: hm, asicminer fraudulently produced ASIC production?

00:28:47 *: nubbins` wanders off in search of thread

00:28:50 asciilifeform: nubbins`: by fronting

00:29:00 asciilifeform: and front-mining.

00:29:07 nubbins`: o, right

00:29:09 asciilifeform: afaik all without exception miner vendors did this.

00:29:11 asciilifeform: heavily.

00:29:28 nubbins`: recall Avalons showing up w/ mining pool info left in config files etc

00:29:45 asciilifeform: no one even tried to hide.

00:29:56 nubbins`: why would you? everyone who bothered to think knew

00:30:07 nubbins`: everyone who just saw $$$ stopped thinking

00:30:16 asciilifeform: the perpetrators were convinced that the chumps were convinced that there is simply no other way.

00:30:35 asciilifeform: (and who am i to contend that they were wrong?)

00:31:01 nubbins`: ^ you buy a butchered pig, the farmer's keeping your tenderloin tips.

00:31:06 asciilifeform: production of ic is an ~intensely, ruinously~ expensive affair, quite on par with space flight

00:31:18 asciilifeform: very few folks seem to understand the full depth of this

00:31:27 nubbins`: am i incorrect in that AM etc early models essentially just baked an FPGA design?

00:31:35 asciilifeform: nubbins`: afaik they STILL do

00:31:38 asciilifeform: !s hardcopy fpga

00:31:38 assbot: 4 results for 'hardcopy fpga' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=hardcopy+fpga

00:31:40 nubbins`: ah, heh.

00:31:58 nubbins`: yeah, sure

00:32:20 asciilifeform: just to add to the already forming lsd trip in this thread: i'm not personally convinced that ic production HAS EVER BEEN +EV

00:32:27 nubbins`: o.O

00:32:40 asciilifeform: it is conceivable the the entire ic age has been fueled by a continuously-rolling 'jam tomorrow' bezzle

00:32:42 nubbins`: you gotta qualify that w/ scale or smth

00:33:42 asciilifeform: ussr, for instance, just about broke its back producing ic (and cloned computers of various descriptions.) it is not clear that these paid for themselves, regardless of how you measure economic

00:33:48 asciilifeform: in fact, they... well.

00:34:23 nubbins`: TBH i think stuff like VLSI is only kept going because everyone involved is afraid the machines won't start up again if they stop

00:34:35 asciilifeform: something can well be ubiquitous, fun to have around, considered a basic element of civilization - and ultimately be -EV.

00:34:45 asciilifeform: sitting on the 'expense' side of the ledger for running civilization.

00:34:55 nubbins`: like parties, for example.

00:35:00 asciilifeform: all good and well, we all want toilets, condoms, cpus.

00:35:08 asciilifeform: but too much of this and - broke.

00:35:18 asciilifeform: and 'why did we collapse'

00:35:38 nubbins`: ooh, is it because we drowned in plastic and trademarked seeds?

00:40:33 nubbins`: and then i found myself in a spiral of photolitho articles.

00:46:57 nubbins`: +1

00:47:04 trinque: asciilifeform: how bout I show you what I've produced tomorrow re: self-replicating gentoo and get your feedback?

00:47:17 trinque: idea is the same thing on the stick ends up on the computer, then the computer's equipped to repeat

00:47:53 trinque: I am to the point where a bootable root.img is repeatably produced

01:19:00 asciilifeform: trinque: aha

01:19:52 asciilifeform: re: ic thread: whole thing is kinda coming together in my skull. quite likely ~^^this^^~ is why it is impossible to borrow money to fund a computer-related anything, without a convincing plan to somehow pass the bezzle to a greater chump

01:20:14 asciilifeform: ~this~ is why just about every large ic maker in history has either gone broke or become a quasi-governmental entity

01:21:03 asciilifeform: note that 'people want computerz' is not enough for the industry to be +ev

01:21:12 asciilifeform: i.e., people want dildoes. yes.

01:21:33 asciilifeform: but what if a dildo intrinsically cost more to make, energy/resource-wise, than the user could ever hope to repay ?

01:21:37 asciilifeform: it'd be rather like spacewalks

01:21:55 asciilifeform: so it is not enough for there to be a market of want-ers. they also gotta be pay-ers

01:22:34 asciilifeform: but if the treat is delicious enough, and bezzlatronics invented, the non-pay-er want-ers easily turn into borrowers.

01:23:05 nubbins`: When asked, hypothetically, how he would pay for complicated life-saving surgery for a loved one, Polk seemed uncertain. "That's a lot of vegetables, isn't it?" he said.

01:23:14 asciilifeform: ^

01:23:22 nubbins`: (from http://www.theonion.com/article/us-economy-grinds-to-halt-as-nation-realizes-money-2912)

01:24:09 asciilifeform: practical outgrowth of this hypothesis is that, if it is true, quite likely that most of the cpu that will EVER be produced, have been produced.

01:24:25 nubbins`: peak silicon!

01:24:25 asciilifeform: ditto anything else which requires vlsi

01:24:48 asciilifeform: http://cluborlov.blogspot.com/2010/02/industrys-parting-gifts.html << quite obligatory.

01:24:49 assbot: ClubOrlov: Industry's Parting Gifts ... ( http://bit.ly/1gkmVSV )

01:25:23 asciilifeform: 'This, then, should be the new main thrust of industrial activity: to manufacture and distribute products with the understanding that this process will run out of resources and stop. These products must be designed to outlive the process by which they are made, by as long as possible.'

01:26:09 asciilifeform: orlov does conflate several unrelated phenomena (in particular, zooming into resource exhaustion to the exclusion of just about all other aspects of problem)

01:26:30 nubbins`: good enough to keep me going until it's time to head out

01:27:19 asciilifeform: the basic problem with -ev is not that eventually you run out of shitanium and unobtainium (though you will) but that you will be getting poorer, monotonically, and not realize precisely why

01:27:24 asciilifeform: and then run up other 'debts'

01:27:37 asciilifeform: in a vain attempt to avoid being ground into mud

01:29:00 asciilifeform: to bring back to concretes, ussr could have done something else with the manpower they sank into cloning pdp, z80

01:29:05 asciilifeform: and churning out those things

01:29:46 nubbins`: but what!

01:29:52 asciilifeform: not a question for me

01:30:18 asciilifeform: ask the folks in the alt-universe where vlsi didn't happen

01:30:28 asciilifeform: perhaps biological strange of some kind

01:30:40 asciilifeform: perhaps herbert's 'mentats', l0l

01:31:23 mod6: I'm gonna re-tackle the rotor build tomorrow btw.

01:31:30 asciilifeform: mod6: neato!

01:31:40 mod6: Been bogged down with fiat job manditory overtime bs.

01:34:18 asciilifeform: i am now looking for the mircea_popescu article where he hypothesized that 'bezzle' is, without exception, born out of people doing things that are -ev on the large scale - in just the same way as elements heavier than iron are born in supernova

01:34:22 nubbins`: heh

01:34:25 nubbins`: dem mentats!

01:34:33 asciilifeform: if anyone has the link (or if i hallucinated this existing) please say.

01:34:34 *: nubbins` applauds softly

01:36:01 asciilifeform: just to work out example on a napkin. say you, a king, want a pyramid built. could a) conscript ten thousand folks to work to death building it b) debase the currency and hire builders

01:36:03 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 238450 @ 0.00056928 = 135.7448 BTC [-] {9}

01:36:26 asciilifeform: i contend that (b) necessarily involves the same amount of enslavement as (a)

01:36:31 asciilifeform: just distributed another way.

01:37:14 asciilifeform: the thing that makes the pyramid a pyramid, at least in a schoolbook example, is that it is not something anyone (but the king) actually ~wants~ that much

01:37:29 asciilifeform: while being costly

01:37:53 *: asciilifeform is roughly aware that the story of actual egyptian pyramids was rather more complicated

01:38:45 asciilifeform: anyway this thread really cannot go anywhere without a mircea_popescu, so i will leave it here.

01:39:19 nubbins`: heh

01:39:38 nubbins`: the pyramid builders had one more thing going for them

01:40:01 nubbins`: and it's the same thing that the church builders had going for them

01:40:18 asciilifeform: could be done 'on installment plan', aha.

01:40:18 nubbins`: altho the church builders were generally more free to fuck off and do something else

01:40:27 asciilifeform: function of above.

01:40:45 asciilifeform: didn't really have a 'takeoff velocity'

01:40:51 nubbins`: nah, what i was going at is that people wanted to do it for free

01:40:58 nubbins`: but, this is now a relic of the past

01:41:08 nubbins`: no stonemasons work for the good of their community any longer

01:41:29 asciilifeform: find me a fella willing to wear a gas suit and wash si in HF all day, every day, 'for the good of' something-or-other.

01:41:42 nubbins`: not in 1st world anyway. when i was in the sacred valley of peru, right in the middle of a 7 hour hike i came across a bunch of guys building a church outta mud bricks

01:41:52 asciilifeform: mud bricks - can have.

01:41:57 asciilifeform: space launch, si fab - no.

01:42:14 nubbins`: asciilifeform the fact that the si and hf exists means the guy's probably not as much of a fuckin rube as the dude who built the church his grandfather was married in

01:42:31 nubbins`: there's tricks you can still pull and tricks you can't

01:42:39 nubbins`: salvation is on its way out as a motivator

01:42:45 asciilifeform: long ago.

01:43:01 nubbins`: science sort of drives it out

01:47:47 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the "not inhabited" part holds its own mystery. did it provide an edge to users ? then, how come not used - is it the current castration of "thinking" folk that prevented them from deplyoing it ? something else ?

01:47:53 mircea_popescu: if not advantage, why is it even here.

01:48:15 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 174188 @ 0.00061043 = 106.3296 BTC [+] {6}

01:48:32 mircea_popescu: not that the presence of "official committees" isn't a sign that the thing's dead/dying.

01:49:59 nubbins`: oh, city workers knocked on my door the other day requesting entry for "propertyassessment"

01:50:15 mircea_popescu: da fuck is that.

01:50:20 mircea_popescu: the soviet thing ?

01:50:51 nubbins`: it's where they count your bathrooms and look at your basement and make sure they're charging you enough property tax

01:51:15 nubbins`: and the homeowner tells you to fuck off

01:51:49 mircea_popescu: you should charge.

01:52:14 mircea_popescu: "guided tour, naked - $50. add $1000 per oz of clothes. shoes $500 flat fee."

01:52:32 mircea_popescu: "pictures - you take, $10 each ; of you - free"

01:52:45 nubbins`: heh

01:52:49 nubbins`: actually it's the other way around

01:53:02 mircea_popescu: orly.

01:53:04 nubbins`: you don't let em in, they're forced to do their assessment from the street

01:53:14 nubbins`: and you waive the right to appeal o.O

01:53:19 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-08-2015#1229626 << at -ev? << the concept of ev does not apply in that context.

01:53:19 assbot: Logged on 07-08-2015 22:54:22; mircea_popescu: i'll take over the us fed and run it from right here, and if there's nobody else i'll take over fucking china silicon and run it from right here too. what in the ever loving fuck.

01:53:31 mircea_popescu: nubbins` no such thing. you can't waive by refusal.

01:54:17 mircea_popescu: "by sucking my cock you waive your right to complain about its girth" < formally valid law.

01:54:32 mircea_popescu: "by refusing to suck my cock you waive your right to fart" < formally invalid.

01:54:53 nubbins`: "by making us guess whether you have a basement apartment, you waive your right to claim that you don't"

01:55:00 mircea_popescu: nope.

01:55:11 mircea_popescu: you don't claim "that you don't".

01:55:13 nubbins`: "by refusing the breathalyzer, you waive the right to claim you're sober"

01:55:22 mircea_popescu: and this "you made me do" bs is for tired mothers.

01:55:24 *: nubbins` shrugs

01:55:28 nubbins`: listen, i don't disagree

01:55:29 mircea_popescu: except no, you don't.

01:55:36 nubbins`: but am i gonna spend a year in court arguing it?

01:55:51 mircea_popescu: if they lose they pay, right ?

01:56:08 nubbins`: meantime, i have paper to cut, feet to rest on coffee tables...

01:56:22 nubbins`: the process of making them lose is itself an unreasonable burden

01:56:22 mircea_popescu: which means, i'll spend fifty, because hey, it keeps one or more lawyers owing me for the bread i provided them

01:56:31 mircea_popescu: depends. if it is the place sucks.

01:56:38 mircea_popescu: generally it's quite lucrative.

01:56:48 nubbins`: i have neither the means nor the will

01:57:16 mircea_popescu: you need like a patron over there.

01:57:24 nubbins`: and not just of the arts, either

01:57:42 mircea_popescu: incidentally, one could prolly make a killing in the north america this way. just - offer patronage to the various people who got paper to cut.

01:58:08 nubbins`: too many electric cutters

01:58:18 nubbins`: we're more of a quality over quantity sort of shop

01:58:43 mircea_popescu: aha

01:59:15 nubbins`: i do have a lovely plough, cca 14th century tech, that can trim a phone book cleaner than the phone book factory does

01:59:41 nubbins`: cuts so clean you could shave in 'em.

01:59:44 mircea_popescu: but not cheaper.

02:00:21 nubbins`: goodness no.

02:00:42 nubbins`: this isn't always the metric tho

02:01:03 mircea_popescu: i have a dog that can slobber better than any race horse :D

02:01:26 *: nubbins` points to client who paid $1ea for business cards, printed and trimmed by hand, because digital offset shop w/ electronic die cutter did such a shitty job o.O

02:01:30 mircea_popescu: aaanyway, im done ruining your fun, bbl.

02:01:38 nubbins`: wait, i was having fun? :D

02:01:46 mircea_popescu: hehe

02:04:34 nubbins`: add a spare blade, i think i dropped close to a thou on that fucking thing

03:05:02 mircea_popescu: on the ethnic filter point, a) it was not actulaly the case historically (new york by ww1 was just about getting to the point of advancement) ; b) it'sjust the lazy man's approach to things. doesn't work, either.

03:05:03 asciilifeform: what work went on, was geared towards pedagogics

03:05:31 mircea_popescu: so it never actually provided an ysort of advantage, but merely the promise of perhaps one day.

03:05:55 asciilifeform: it solved approximately half the problem: 'kill the cruft'

03:06:03 mircea_popescu: i see.

03:06:06 asciilifeform: but only showed a vague sketch of how to solve the remaining half

03:06:11 asciilifeform: 'construct a habitable planet'

03:10:42 mircea_popescu: used to be petrol -> corned beef.

03:15:25 asciilifeform: well, and that minerals are not even half of the problem.

03:16:02 mircea_popescu: i am somehow unconcerned.

03:16:03 asciilifeform: oh hey.

03:32:46 mircea_popescu: the way "computer expert" approaches a problem ? first, he sits around imagining a problem that might be. then he comes up with the most theoretically-lovable way to solve a general problem three steps removed from what he imagined. then he proceeds to fail to implement a solution that mostly works.

03:33:04 mircea_popescu: time he spent = 10 to 100x time he saved, not to mention he saves time that's not worth saving in the first place.

03:47:47 mircea_popescu: you were financed the same way

03:47:49 asciilifeform: i.e. that ~all~ asics are quite like bitcoin asics in that respect

03:47:52 mircea_popescu: your parents decided to have a baby.

03:47:54 mircea_popescu: what was that ?

03:47:56 asciilifeform: aha but i'm cheaper.

03:48:01 mircea_popescu: in what numbers ?

03:48:47 asciilifeform: in just about any numbers one cares to pick. whether in minerals, or in joules, or in time of scarce experts tied up

03:49:20 mircea_popescu: not so. average cost per kid over 1-18 is about 500k atm. that makes the stable cost quadrillions. computers don't cost that much.

03:49:39 asciilifeform: 500k in what, usg uni tuition ? l0l

03:49:49 mircea_popescu: everything. starting with hiring the mother.

03:50:13 asciilifeform: i had this whole 'trip' while holding a ru z80 in my hands and wondering why there is no more where it came from

03:50:21 asciilifeform: if making such things is 'good business'

03:50:35 mircea_popescu: 2.5k calories a day * 365 * 20 is a decent chunk oif change even in hfcs terms

03:50:44 asciilifeform: and then realized that virtually every tech entity of that period, is either dead or usgized

03:54:36 asciilifeform: there we go.

03:54:50 mircea_popescu: still think 500k is an exaggeration ?

03:54:54 asciilifeform: about same as small computer.

03:55:25 mircea_popescu: the point of comparison weould be "pile of scrap metal in the approximate shape of a desktop"

03:56:13 asciilifeform: at any rate, this edges into the territory of converting meters to litres and 'comparing the soft to the warm'

03:56:19 mircea_popescu: okay.

03:56:28 mircea_popescu: let's get back to your original idea. can you state it ?

03:56:51 asciilifeform: my real question was 'is it possible to finance a computer without duping millions that they Must Upgrade Because (tm) ' ?

03:56:55 mircea_popescu: (the only solution to the soft-warm comparison is a decent pair of tits)

03:57:15 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform depends. do you live in a world where most capital is uselessly distributed to idiots ?

03:57:43 asciilifeform: hence my mental excursion in this gedankenexperiment to the world of j.s. bach and his organs

03:58:05 asciilifeform: no britney there, no. but was it 'in the hands of idiots' still ?

03:58:10 mircea_popescu: if people get "salaries" for doing "work" which have to then be collected back from them - the mcdonald, walmart, windows and britney spears are unavoidable.

03:58:19 asciilifeform: aha

03:58:22 mircea_popescu: otherwise, none of these exist.

03:58:54 mircea_popescu: so your choice of whether you want a good computer or not reduces to whether you're willing to live without the mass delusion of you know, "democracy" or w/e it's called.

03:58:58 asciilifeform: and here is where we meet up with vlsi boojum: you can't do vlsi economically if there is room for six computers total.

03:59:20 mircea_popescu: the fact that there's room for six CAPITAL ALLOCATORS total

04:07:25 mircea_popescu: like, how they ACTUALLY made the fucking looms work.

04:07:30 *: asciilifeform recalls mircea_popescu's article re: same

04:07:34 mircea_popescu: the reason is... because... not having the much hated IP at the time,

04:07:42 mircea_popescu: there was 0 incentive for anyone wit ha clue to share.

04:07:47 mircea_popescu: so they took it to grave and fuck you.

04:08:00 asciilifeform: like dks and the lisp machine blueprints, aha

04:08:20 asciilifeform: (i confronted him personally, at his house, he said 'stuff it')

04:08:46 asciilifeform: and 'ip'

04:09:18 mircea_popescu: myeah.

04:09:31 mircea_popescu: so you know... that's the large thing here. unless we manage to make the wot actually work for this purpose

04:09:37 mircea_popescu: we're in so many words proper fucked

04:09:43 mircea_popescu: because ip is going away, there's no fixing it.

04:09:45 asciilifeform: sorta what i was getting at

04:09:49 mircea_popescu: and without it, we're back to 1800

04:09:51 asciilifeform: (among other)

04:09:57 asciilifeform: 1300.

04:10:04 mircea_popescu: somewhere between maybe.

04:10:18 asciilifeform: 1300+kalash

04:10:23 asciilifeform: (for a spell anyway)

04:11:18 mircea_popescu: the only good news is that wot can in fact owrk for this puropose. it solves it completely.

04:11:25 mircea_popescu: whether it catches tho...

04:11:39 mircea_popescu: but there's worse flags to die under, so there's that.

04:11:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in somewhat related nyooz, i've been experimenting with what for now i call 'v' - a very dumb 'versioner' that i've been writing, which eats solely 0) pgp keys 1) patches 2) signatures for same, many-to-many mapping of (2) to (1)

04:12:05 asciilifeform: and walks graphz

04:12:19 asciilifeform: once actually useful, will post draft.

04:12:27 mircea_popescu: cool

04:13:57 asciilifeform: (i don't grasp the need for notions like 'check in' or 'check out', etc. one instead throws patches and sigs in a pot, and then proceeds to ask for graph, and then select a leaf on said graph - and get a src tree out.)

04:21:41 asciilifeform: involved workmen pissing in barrels to anneal

04:21:57 asciilifeform: and a serious lapse in quality when somehow the staffing rotated and this was not done

04:22:29 *: asciilifeform believes that this tale, if has any factual ground, is a corruption of some other thing that was actually physically plausible

04:23:52 asciilifeform: the basic root of the matter is that 'industrial production' is an abstraction ~on top of~ craftsmanship in the same way as the digital computer is an abstraction on top of analogue solid-state physics

04:24:05 asciilifeform: the abstraction is imperfect and necessarily leaks.

04:24:57 mircea_popescu: this is a recurring theme throughout the history of agrarian civilisations trying to internalise the industrial revolution - chiefly by putting a bit of their flesh i nthe machine. the jews supposedly making bread out of goy boy blood, the wine made by stepping on grapes, the sovet factory that ceased to work once they forbade huyspeak...

04:25:05 mircea_popescu: it's a thing.

04:25:12 asciilifeform: the last time this surfaced in a major way was when cnc lathe & mill were introduced, in the '50s (paper tape!) and engineers took to the notion that machinists could now be dispensed with

04:25:39 asciilifeform: this led to 'produce scrap metal at very high speed' (tm)

06:53:23 mircea_popescu: "all operating systems are monolithic because that's just how computers work" is a fine example of utter vulgarity.

16:09:08 mircea_popescu: "Thats like saying the dotcom bubble was a scam isn't it? You can certainly phrase it like that but is that really whats going on. An actual scam?"

16:09:13 mircea_popescu: where do these fucktards spawn from srsly.

16:09:23 mircea_popescu: wywialm options on what ?

16:09:39 mircea_popescu: for instance i had an open offer for a tsla short in here weeks ago, could it have filled it ?

16:09:39 wywialm: and that market should be bitcoin-oriented, i.e. contracts should be structured treading fiat currencies as foreign currencies

16:09:52 mircea_popescu: oh, fx futures you mean ?

16:10:08 wywialm: currently - on fiat currencies, but i'd very much like to introduce stock options

16:10:24 mircea_popescu: how do you resolve the liability issue ?

16:11:06 mircea_popescu: suppose i buy a million dollars to be delivered in q4. how do you resolve the part where you have to make sure whoever sold me the mn actually has it by then ?

16:12:12 wywialm: currently the contracts are financially settled, but when we move to the physical delivery (as soon as possible), the margins would increase as the contract approaches notice date

16:12:36 mircea_popescu: so sellers get daily margin calls ?

16:13:48 mircea_popescu: http://40.media.tumblr.com/52250483f30c6d161a3d9517789a4ac7/tumblr_n9eqdbprVo1tttg72o1_1280.jpg << quoted for the pained face and contorted body language of the derp in white. she KNOWS, like in her ovaries, that she's looking at exactly what she should be doing. she thinks, in her stupid head, that this is not something she could do. so she's in the physically detectable process of inventing contortions of nonsense to

16:14:03 mircea_popescu: "explain" and "make sense" of it all. because omfg, what if she just ditched the blouse o noes her mommy told her the sky would fall.

16:14:03 wywialm: margin calls might appear in real time, if the margin is not replenished quickly, the position is liquidated

16:14:19 wywialm: where quickly is defined in terms of price move

16:14:24 mircea_popescu: "quickly"

16:14:36 mircea_popescu: so it gets liquidated. what's that do for buyer ?

16:14:37 wywialm: :)

16:14:51 mircea_popescu: i bought 1mn in q4, yoiu're gonna give me 3/4 mn in q3 because hey, why not ?

16:14:53 mircea_popescu: im suing you.

16:15:56 wywialm: the liquidated contract is sold on the market at the market price

16:16:17 mircea_popescu: but you see what i mean do you ?

16:17:31 wywialm: yes, ultimately, the exchange provides reserves to cover for members' losses, which are planned to be strenghened by credit default swaps

16:18:22 shinohai: From: https://quedex.net/doc/security "The Cold Wallet is implemented on top of the Bitcoin Core client using watch-only addresses." <<< fail ?

16:18:23 assbot: Quedex Bitcoin Derivatives Exchange ... ( http://bit.ly/1TeFF2S )

16:19:05 wywialm: shinohai that is why i'm asking you - could you please explain?

16:19:15 mircea_popescu: this will be the bane of your existence, on the general theoretic front. because like it or not, the unappealing dilemma is, either offer "renegotiable contracts", which is roughly what you're describing, and which fails at the only job futures have to do (ie, ensure the buyer of specified amount of specified merchandise on specified date), or else full reserve, which will kill your speculators without which no market

16:19:16 mircea_popescu: can function (irrespective of what idiots such as the eu central bank think). so there is that.

16:19:25 mircea_popescu: but in point of fact, for your daily life, you'll have a much more annoying problem.

16:19:31 mircea_popescu: what btc price do you use for settlement ?

16:20:15 shinohai: wywialm: still analyzing

16:20:27 mircea_popescu: shinohai will require a coupla engineers always on to watch the watchjer. this is unavoidalbe, bitcoin is a pos anyway.

16:21:23 wywialm: currently - an average across 4 USD exchanges, with cutting out outliers

16:22:27 mircea_popescu: problem being the market's illiquid enough to be easily pushed. but that's not something you'll manage to fix or really should be fixing.

16:23:05 mircea_popescu: what's the meaning of "collaborating on" in this context ?

16:23:23 wywialm: i am the economist behind all this

16:24:02 mircea_popescu: are you an outside consultant on a salary, a board member with an equity interest, a volunteer academic, none of the above.

16:24:22 mircea_popescu: (note that deferred salary payments and other promises make you a 3)

16:25:30 wywialm: re spot illiquidity - i acknowlegde this, currency futures as well as commodity futures should have physical delivery and we're working on it

16:26:06 mircea_popescu: if your future doesn't deliver it has a hole in it, sooner or later it'll infect and puss out. anyway.

16:26:16 wywialm: 3) academic with deferred salary payments dependent of the performace of the exchange

16:27:02 mircea_popescu: why would you wish to risk your reputation (which, whatever you may think of it, is significant enough that you can come here and have my ear whenever you want to) on this thing ? for all you know you're reliving the neobee nightmare. you remember that ?

16:28:12 wywialm: i think it's a good idea, and i know personally people involved, and i needed your comments - how else could i get these?

16:28:24 wywialm: btw: thank you for kind words

16:28:39 mircea_popescu: why're these people involved not in the wot for instance ? who are they ? how do you know any word they say is true ?

16:29:09 shinohai: neobee provided so many lulz

16:29:26 wywialm: yes, i remember neobee very well

16:29:52 mircea_popescu: the way this usually works, and it has worked about 500 times to date with 0 variance, is that scammer gets a coupla sluts and a coupla "credible people" to contact respectable, well meaning folk, launches project. from the perspective of the public the respectable folk form an impenetrable visual barrier. from the perspective of said folk, the coupla sluts and couipla salesmen idem. and a year to a year and a half lat

16:29:52 mircea_popescu: er scammer runs witrh moey and the entire stack of noobs is left apologizing

16:30:31 mircea_popescu: !up n6

16:31:22 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they finally giving up on all the pretense re truecrypt ? win.

16:31:42 mircea_popescu: i guess all the effort to parallel-construct was no longer worth it seeing how "nobody" really bought it anyway.

16:31:43 wywialm: i will of course invite them to WoT - but i know them for a long time irl

16:32:03 nubbins`: re:neobee, wonder what happened to thickasthieves

16:32:14 mircea_popescu: wywialm there's know and there's know. not something i can help you with - but know you are in fact taking your fate in your own hands and make the call as to these people in full light of that.

16:32:14 shinohai: That means little to potential investors though.

16:32:20 nubbins`: i guess he got his cream and moved on

16:32:29 mircea_popescu: nubbins` iirc he narrowly survived that, a settlement being involved.

16:32:35 nubbins`: o!

16:32:46 nubbins`: he got way too much of a pass in here

16:32:52 nubbins`: for the amount of shady things he was into

16:33:06 n6: Hey mircea_popescu I have been coming around last few days getting a ton of help, but it has all made me feel awful. Last year I really let your ideas down and ended up getting tricked by someone pretending to be a friend of mine. but in the end the basic ideas saved me from going to jail. would you help me work out?

16:33:08 mircea_popescu: it's a forum, this. really very free passage throughout.

16:33:21 mircea_popescu: n6 work out ?!

16:35:35 mircea_popescu: wywialm best of luck. there isn't anything glaringly obvious to say else.

16:35:53 mircea_popescu: n6 so say your story.

16:35:57 n6: working on it.

16:36:06 wywialm: mircea_popescu, i didn't expect this, but i'm thankful

16:36:06 mircea_popescu: was another guy did something similar, trying to remember

16:36:09 mircea_popescu: Duffer1 maybe.

16:36:30 wywialm: actually, there are two more issues i would like to ask you

16:36:34 mircea_popescu: shoot

16:36:47 n6: Started reading reading fraudsters about 2.5 years ago, and it was all, I could think about. But my understanding was lacking. so I didnt talk in b-a took it to all my friends, none of them seeme to care. but then one guy cyperpunk sort of guy... we talked about it for about 3/mo then he dropped off the face of the earth

16:37:48 wywialm: first,is the dual market model - we are utilising auctions on openings and closes. Do you have any thoughts on it?

16:37:58 n6: at some point he came back to a chan with just me and him and all he wanted to talk about was your site and doing mpex.. told him at first we didnt know anything we would just lose all our money to error or get robbed. but he kept pushing and I gave in and went to hook up with him in nyc

16:38:20 nubbins`: you went to hook up with him o.O

16:38:21 mircea_popescu: wywialm it's not an illegitimate approach. i can't evaluate how practically useful it'll be, but then again that's what you folks are in for right ?

16:38:48 mircea_popescu: n6 what's your first language ?

16:38:56 n6: english

16:38:58 n6: just very bad with it.

16:39:00 mircea_popescu: kk go on.

16:39:23 wywialm: second, is the stock options mentioned above - would you allow to issue options on S.MPOE, or would you allow creating an MPEx index to issue derivatives on it?

16:39:33 n6: we had a longer friendship then 3/mo and he was the one who told me about bitcoin forums (how i found out about mpoe-pr). anyway once I got to nyc, saw we both didnt know anything so pretty much told him I couldnt keep keys and we would lose all our money

16:39:36 n6: he still wanted to do it

16:39:42 n6: told him he should just do coinbr and leave me out of it

16:39:47 n6: said he was ok with losing all his money

16:40:07 n6: told him I wouldn't have anything to do with fiat only bitcoin and we would have to move out of the states to do it.

16:40:46 mircea_popescu: wywialm i'm not required to allow trading of options. for as long as you hold some of the underlying, you can structure its ownership in any way you wish. such as through trading options on it.

16:41:02 n6: he was also asking me to rep him in the wot ( told him he had to do that on his own )

16:41:22 mircea_popescu: !gettrust n6

16:41:27 n6: I'm not a user

16:41:32 n6: no key

16:41:32 mircea_popescu: n6 how would you help him then ?

16:41:49 wywialm: legally - yes, but you would be a stakeholder in some sense, so i'd rather do it with you knowing about it

16:42:00 n6: I was wrong. but your ideas saved me

16:42:07 *: nubbins` chuckles

16:42:25 nubbins`: i have 5 bucks says MP is getting a woman to read this back to him later

16:42:29 n6: I couldn't help him, thought he would do some reading on his own but all he wanted me to do was save posts for him to read.

16:42:37 n6: yep

16:42:42 n6: more then 5

16:43:08 nubbins`: your friend sounds like a chump

16:43:08 n6: even showed me how to save a post on my desktop.... into a pdf

16:43:11 nubbins`: no offense

16:43:16 n6: he isnt my friend he was someone pretending to be

16:43:22 mircea_popescu: nubbins` you lose.

16:43:26 nubbins`: :/

16:43:27 wywialm: anyway, thank you for your comments

16:43:40 n6: sorry for how I acted, mind if i come back around?

16:43:46 nubbins`: n6 when you said "cypherpunk" i stopped caring :P

16:43:58 mircea_popescu: wywialm well i'm not entirely sure how that'd work, not like i'm against it or anything. but gotta come up with something specific.

16:44:02 nubbins`: n6 heck, pull up a chair

16:44:07 n6: nubbins` for good reason... but he was the only person around my level I could find to talk about this with.

16:44:13 mircea_popescu: nubbins` i always thought you're like the only cypherpunk here you know.

16:44:37 wywialm: sure, when technical stuff is ready i will let you know

16:44:39 mircea_popescu: n6 either i'm slow today or something's amiss. i don't get what exactly you think you did wrong from this story.

16:45:12 n6: I didn't interact with my first friend using gpg auth so someoen else just stepped in and was able too..

16:45:23 n6: we had only ever met online

16:45:43 mircea_popescu: so what, i'm the patron saint of sane ops ?

16:45:52 shinohai: tl;dr use wot next time

16:46:03 n6: yes

16:46:11 mircea_popescu: tell you what, wen i was about 10 a girl that really liked me in schooil called me on the phone pretending to be this other girl i really liked, and she tricked me into meeting at the movies.

16:46:27 mircea_popescu: i didnmt think to ask for a gpg sig. bought her an icecream and we even kissed!

16:46:31 mircea_popescu: will you ever forgive me ?

16:46:54 mircea_popescu: (yes, back when i was 10 kids went to the cinema on their own. fancy that.)

17:04:32 shinohai: what did u need help with lusb?

17:05:00 shinohai: *lsusb

17:05:13 n6: it's missing on my gentoo install and need to install some wifi ethernet is broken.

17:05:58 *: asciilifeform has nothing against n00bz, but has the distinct feeling of watching primary school pupils banging on the door of a university maths dept for help with arithmetic homework.

17:06:20 shinohai: Well that sux. I can't be of much help when it comes to gentoo tho :/

17:06:32 asciilifeform: schools have grade for a reason?

17:13:05 asciilifeform: what's it mean to 'read selectively' ?

17:15:00 n6: It means I didn't read to learn just read for enjoyment or until something got hard and gave up.

17:22:03 mircea_popescu: who paid the bills ?

17:22:06 n6: my mommy

17:22:13 n6: and the govorment

17:22:26 phf: most romanian girls i've met on the east coast were doing work exchange at beach towns. they are very friendly and talkative because americans seemed to be scared of approaching them

17:22:27 *: shinohai not sure if trolling ....

17:23:13 mircea_popescu: phf gotta appreciate they grew up in a sane culture. you know, malecentric rapeworld of doom-evil thing.

17:23:30 mircea_popescu: so the world as reflected in their eyes doesn't actually suck the way it does for usian born and bred.

17:24:31 phf: i sometimes forget how it us outside of here

17:27:05 mircea_popescu: phf "rapeworld". just because english tards use words doesn't mean much.

17:29:40 phf: i hope so, because the whole thing is toxic and oppressive

17:30:07 mircea_popescu: i think we'd greatly benefit from defining things here, i'm getting confused.

17:31:42 mircea_popescu: so, i see three things. 1) the actual rape culture as seen in "women are cattle" vory outlook on life and derivatives ; 2) the so-called "rape culture" wherein male dominance is generally recognised as natural within some bounds ; 3) the libertard nonsense, a recent reimplementation of the ancient socialist "great leaps forward".

17:31:48 mircea_popescu: i was comparing 2 and 3. were you thinking of 1 ?

17:32:31 phf: no, 2 and 3. i was saying that 3 is toxic and oppressive

17:32:43 mircea_popescu: oh i c.

17:32:55 mircea_popescu: i dunno, it's really just meaningless.

17:32:59 mircea_popescu: toxic, i suppose, if one's bolted down.

17:33:06 mircea_popescu: like the nut tree's toxic.

17:34:56 phf: well, you're not experiencing it directly, and it seems palpable here, in the real world. like i went to a beach a few weeks ago in americatown (ocean city, md) and the vibes are just nasty. sluggish girls with stooped shoulders avoiding any sort of eye contact or making nasty faces at you if you linger on them too long

17:35:51 mircea_popescu: so you say "hey, something bothering you" ?

17:36:20 phf: i thought maybe it's from too much internet, but no, there was a group of girls that acted like normal human beings, coy and playful and active. turned out they were slovenian

18:49:24 ben_vulpes: set -e, write functions?

19:34:08 chetty: well what is and isnt a 'perv' is a pretty personal definition. Some might go with the pregnant call but not many, imo.

22:01:03 trinque: my thought is simply that you should be vouched for by someone in a place before you're permitted entry

22:01:07 trinque: you know, such as here.

22:01:23 mircea_popescu: the golden crescent didn't have the "rights" approach to things.

22:01:36 mircea_popescu: you took your life in your hands. if some guy with more men and a whip felt like it... you were meat.

22:01:41 mircea_popescu: so best go there with guards.

22:01:53 mircea_popescu: but on this premise, sure, go wherever.

22:02:40 ag3nt_zer0: well up until the early 70s in america we were mostly taking white immigrants who simply assimilate easier and are more aligned with the extant culture... Teddy Kennedy changed all that

22:03:07 trinque: my point's simply that talking about immigration at the nation-state scale is an absurdly large, unsolvable problem

22:03:37 mircea_popescu: kinda the internal combustion engine changed all that.

22:03:41 trinque: mircea_popescu: I see your point; if you have power, you're safe wherever you like

22:03:47 mircea_popescu: once you can move that fast, "immigration" is a weird concept.

22:04:16 mircea_popescu: trinque sorta like the lion sees it. are yo uan illegal immigrant in the savannah ? well... it all depends. how good's your roar ?

22:04:24 trinque: haha

22:10:09 ag3nt_zer0: mircea_popescu: oddly enough, this opposite of this argument is used by the left to prop up amnesty and all these things... that that's exactly what they are doing... bringing great contribution... and, someone has to pick my vegetables Im told...

22:10:21 ag3nt_zer0: did anyone watch that GOP debate?

22:10:40 mircea_popescu: was it the first and biggest ?

22:10:55 trinque: I suffered through part of it; in general though, the outcome should by now be largely irrelevant to you.

22:11:26 ag3nt_zer0: yeah i guess it is

22:11:41 ag3nt_zer0: but just nice to see someone there on their own dime for a chnage

22:11:59 trinque: Trump's just froth on the top of the last real estate bubble

22:12:22 ag3nt_zer0: sure but its his money in his pocket

22:13:49 trinque: I'm not going to deny that the man has made some money, but neither he nor anyone else has any ideas.

22:13:57 ag3nt_zer0: maybe i am getting stupid, but I find it refreshing

22:14:12 ag3nt_zer0: it lifts a bit of the fog of conformity

22:14:26 trinque: this is a man who hosted reality tv, rememeber

22:14:30 ag3nt_zer0: yeah sure

22:14:33 trinque: *remember

22:14:36 ag3nt_zer0: but he did it for the money

22:14:46 ag3nt_zer0: i assume

22:16:23 trinque: far from being someone who can see the "big issues" with america, he benefited from all the worst of them

22:16:52 trinque: I don't expect anything good to come of him except a bitching monster truck rally sponsored by Brawndo

22:16:57 ag3nt_zer0: haha

22:17:09 ag3nt_zer0: could be right

22:17:34 ag3nt_zer0: it must be a sign of how low we've sink that I would consider that an upgrade

22:17:39 trinque: indeed.

22:20:11 ag3nt_zer0: so i got this meetup notice that there are some etherium frontier launch parties this weekend here in the Gay Area... one is a dress-up rainbows and unicorns party...

22:39:05 ag3nt_zer0: cazalla: man...

22:39:47 ag3nt_zer0: funkenstein: tragic loss man... that's the "left" i used to love

22:40:06 ag3nt_zer0: i wonder what he would have to say about the left today...

22:40:06 trinque: he wasn't left

22:40:11 trinque: he just took a lot of drugs

22:40:17 ag3nt_zer0: well by his own admission he was

22:40:37 shinohai: funkenstein_: I will rate you for your help earlier, your feedback helped me fix this shit.

22:40:41 ag3nt_zer0: but i often think he might have had a naivety about the political spectrum

22:41:44 trinque: struck me as someone mistrusting big govt

22:41:55 funkenstein_: shinohai, many thanks, and happy to help :D

22:42:07 trinque: but otherwise I don't remember a specific mention of his political beliefs, aside from seeing it all as bullshit

22:42:26 shinohai: It was goddamned stupidity and paranoia on my part.

22:43:54 ag3nt_zer0: here is where i remember that from

22:44:20 ag3nt_zer0: its contextual but I think he considered himself on "that side" if any side

22:44:29 ag3nt_zer0: these days I am certain he wouldnt

22:45:19 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: sure, hating bush isn't being a leftist

22:45:23 ag3nt_zer0: trinque: yeah I think he was just mistrustful of gvmt power in general

22:45:26 trinque: he said it, but yeah

22:45:29 trinque: that's just binary thinking

22:45:41 ag3nt_zer0: well thats what i meant about the political naivity

22:45:46 ag3nt_zer0: its strange

22:45:46 trinque: agreed

22:45:51 trinque: consider his audience

22:45:55 ag3nt_zer0: fueled by psychedelics

22:46:06 ag3nt_zer0: it is not uncommon for folks to end up on the left

22:47:43 ag3nt_zer0: something about the jesus would have been a socialist shit

22:47:52 trinque: I've done piles of psychedelics

22:47:57 trinque: I think that's just hippy nonsense

22:48:22 trinque: never after a trip was I moved to join hands and sing

22:48:48 ag3nt_zer0: well maybe its the music scene and the civil rights and the 60s and that whole ball of wax... that when people wake up on those substances, if they follow the "cultural

22:48:59 ag3nt_zer0: thread, they are led back to those "movements"

22:49:00 trinque: that's what I mean about binary thinking.

22:49:16 trinque: somebody takes a strong chemical, realizes that they've mindlessly followed this or that

22:49:39 trinque: so in their ignorance, they stick a minus sign in front of what they believed last and call it a revelation

22:49:46 ag3nt_zer0: yeah thats why I just got so disgusted with that side of things and those types of people

22:49:53 trinque: see: me listening to "satanic" metal at 14

22:52:12 ag3nt_zer0: funkenstein: hehe that old bag... RAW and co... fun stuff

22:53:09 ag3nt_zer0: remember prometheus rising?

22:53:26 funkenstein_: i don' t think so?

22:53:48 ag3nt_zer0: i did that damn "visualize a quarter" experiment for a couple weeks and whne i finally found one, it was glued to the pavement

22:53:55 funkenstein_: you recommend it?

22:54:07 ag3nt_zer0: which was not one of the proposed outcomes... which was perfect for the message

22:54:13 ag3nt_zer0: hmmmm

22:54:16 ag3nt_zer0: i usd to

22:54:21 ag3nt_zer0: depends on where someone is

22:54:52 ag3nt_zer0: now when i read some of that stuff it seems only good for a certain stage

22:54:58 funkenstein_: i enjoy some trash scifi from time to time

22:55:00 ag3nt_zer0: yeah sure give it ago

22:55:07 ag3nt_zer0: hmmmm

22:55:18 trinque: visualize a quarter?

22:57:13 ag3nt_zer0: funkenstein: yeah maybe i am mistaken but i recall that he penned the principia discordia

22:57:29 ag3nt_zer0: or was somehow affiliated with that whole scene

22:59:06 trinque: forgive me, but I see a lot of this stuff as a sort of post-christian wankfest

22:59:14 ag3nt_zer0: prometheus rising is described as an operaters manual for the human brain and is a syncretism of learys 8 circuit brain model , korzybski's langugae theories, quantum gobbldygook, and other brain change shit

22:59:51 funkenstein_: "Rev. Ivan Stang originally planned on suing the authors for plagiarizing content from the Book of the SubGenius, but then realized that Principia Discordia had been written several decades earlier and that the Book of the SubGenius had technically plagiarized Principia Discordia"

23:00:05 shinohai: @ trinque anything post-christian is ok wid me

23:00:13 trinque: I am particuarly skeptical of simple models of consciousness

23:00:29 funkenstein_: trinque, ones that fit in head?

23:00:46 trinque: heh, yes

23:00:47 shinohai: We live in a simulation. I suspect mircea_popescu is funding it.

23:01:17 shinohai: *kek*

23:02:53 ag3nt_zer0: ok gonna go hack my monkey at the piano... good afternoon

23:03:10 trinque: later

23:03:18 funkenstein_: cheers

23:03:23 trinque: funkenstein_: yes, how could you have a complete model of the thing inside itself?

23:03:39 trinque: sure I could say in some particular context you could model an aspect of my behavior

23:06:04 trinque: you can reach different conclusions here, I think

23:06:48 trinque: the one that makes sense to me is that having an identity is distinct from saying you have a model of your own consciousness

23:06:59 trinque: whereas I hear people try to link the two all the time

23:07:39 funkenstein_: interesting, consciousness as identity. does every thread have a label?

23:08:38 trinque: explain the question?

23:09:54 funkenstein_: making the analogy to silicon computer terminology, processes have labels - identities if you will

23:10:40 trinque: ah

23:10:46 trinque: at least in my case, certainly not

23:11:47 trinque: it would seem that human beings have much more going on mentally than they're aware
