EDIT 5: I was right the first time; removed the doubt edits. Confusion was that SOCIAL is can also be included in DMN but doesn’t have to be. will add: start at DMN, THEN to motor, then using motor/concrete to imitate a “2nd order DMN” that includes social background assumption (typical social intentions) due to lack of a DMN social background .. oh, i am so close. –restart Motor to default mode network There is a how to why spectrum which goes from concrete to abstract and it recruits different parts of the brain but it’s not so much a dichotomy as there’s levels of abstraction. This is big. I’ve read some people (inattentive adhd, autism, preterm born but there’s many others) who spend a lot of time in the “default mode network” (DFN) (daydreaming, thinking about past and future and possibilities, etc) and I’m definitely one of them. Now armed with that and a) the notion of an “salience network” bridging between default mode network and executive network (a paper from a few days ago and b) this notion of concrete (how) to abstract (why / social), I’m “almost there”. These papers use DIFFERENT notion of abstract than I’ve been and so I have to adjust so I’m not there “yet” but wow it’s almost: I think for example my learning of psychology from a young age was to compensate for being UNABLE to form a quick “Theory of Mind” and _instead” have used reasoning systems to compensate and motor systems for “SPEED” to try to IMITATE A “THEORY OF MIND” (compensation) as best I could.

She shouldn’t worry. The internet has unleashed creativity among children in a way that the world’s never seen before. Go through Youtube or Tiktok or Instagram and you’ll see hundreds of thousands of kids worldwide making videos to entertain themselves and their friends or even just out to nobody – just to perform and show off what they can do. They share dancing, drawings, musical talent, sport skills – and even if nobody’s watching, these phones give them an outlet to express themselves. So no, She’s wrong. It’s not that the internet is needed or that phones are needed; but they HELP creativity more than hurt because they give the ability to share with others.

She shouldn’t worry.

Ok. I have some bigger picture thoughts: a) how have i been able to use faulty circuits with neural plasticity to accomplish what I have so far? b) What ways do I think about things can be linked directly to the mechanisms of my faulty circuits? (for example: why imperative programming always appealed to me over functional programming? Imperative programming = motor systems. These kinds of self-insights which I have to go through) c) How can I use what I learn not only to make further improvements both for myself and moreso for others. that is: how to generalize what I’ve learned better. Operationalization? I think that’s the word. I’m probably ready for b) – that will tie a long of years of work together.

Ok. So far, CCAR Protocol is pragmatic. It is “how to talk about Race” which is a difficult American topic and it’s their methodology for effective conversation for inter and intra racial conversation where everybody feels heard and acknowledged. So that wasn’t the CRT part. But there’s a good chance I’ll find it because now I’m on a mission

Ok. So far, CCAR

Oh I don’t mean the Justin Bieber once famous — no, I mean the little boy who did a single thing. The single thing was snapped up and he was constructed into something by people who knew how to construct cardboard public figures. The bar of perfection is lower for Rittenhouse that it was for Bieber; but still, whatever set of opinions he expresses will have to match up with the standards right now for that group if he wants to continue getting interviewed and travelling to places and stuff.

Oh I don’t mean

Oh I think he likes the spotlight very very much. This is his life now. He likely has a book coming out. He will be a public speaker for CPAC and other places for decades to come. He’s a cash cow. Cash cash cash and I’m sure he’s getting his share because that’s how the game works and he’s deep in for good. I’ve watched this play out a lot; one trick pony does a thing a group likes, and their whole life is defined by that thing and it is all they know how to do; tell and retell a story to an adoring crowd and profit from it. The difference is; he was swooped up by some powerful people early on; long before it even went to trial; his fate for decades set as a future grifter. There won’t be anything else he can do.

Oh I think he
