The long running joke that’s basically true is: all white people are cops. Often found in “WhitePeopleStarterKit memes”.

Nah. But I do that “HEY-THATS-NOTS-RIGHT” thing and “As the authority in the room, this is my opinion…” thing.

====

Yup. I work on it, but that implicit bias is there. I’m glad when I’m called out on it ’cause I’m trying to minimize my own assholery. Mr Rogers is my idol ya know.

I’m going to practice being a not-cop:

“I’m listening”.

wait… no that’s totally cop

 Do you swagger?

 I’m not one of the religion of the logical fallacy-as-sin. But occasionally I use it.I’m more of the communicate effectively by being slightly irritating but mostly ok.
=====
  I also make good use of my nerd privilege. Tall white man with beard and glasses must be smart right? So, I let folks believe that.Plus, I apparently work at EVERY store I shop in.I look like “that guy”.
=====
 $100+ less a month = $1200 income / yr. :
=====
 I’m not a fan of stereotyping. I’m aware of it though. I’m slow to accept labels but after a while I give up fighting.
=====
 Same I had computers as my hobby and the glasses gave me nerd cred so folks assume “ASK KEN HE KNOWS”.I don’t. But I can figure it out since they believed in me.
====
 Agreed. I’ve been puzzled by it my whole life as that kind of group thinking always looks like “sports” to me. Team vs team.As a kid I had long lists of rules in my head. I still do. One of them was, “Don’t trust people in groups of three that are of like mind”.It’s as if something new emerges between that isn’t the sum of parts, but something… different.
======
  in-group / out-group. Anytime I see that I think, “duh sports again”.
======
 Tribalism is odd to me but I *think* it might be oxytocin levels. Someone said that to me as a joke but I looked at my DNA through codegen.eu and son of a gun, I MAY have little to no empathy due to low oxytocin and consequently, low tribalism.
——
 I like individual sports. Always appreciated gymnastics, long jump – Olympic type sports. But group sports? nah.

  Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”that haunted me as a kid and probably partially inspired kid-me’s rule-of-3 but mostly it’s because “bad kids” around town always hung around in 3s.I can reason with 1 or 2.But when it’s 3 and they’re all “on the same page”? It’s too often wicked.
——
  I don’t think pure democracy exists or ever did. Rather, it’s a companion.As a companion I think it works fine. Needs a framework to prevent abuse and of course being based on the notion that “man is rational” makes it instantly wrong.
——
 But I think the notion of “man is reasonable” – is worth salvaging.
=====
 Well, I’m not of the fallacy religion. I think individual humans can be reasonable if they are of approximately similar ranking in society.But if they are higher or lower ranking or class or power differences that reasonability can go out the window quickly.

  No they don’t. Downward causation my friend. Logic is pushed by abstraction.
=====
  https://philarchive.org/rec/ELLHDC-2 this is a marvelous paper from just 3 days ago from George Ellis. Articulates what I’ve been trying to tell folks for decades why the “computer is logic” is wrong when viewed from a flip/flop view.
=====
 You can’t go from bits to the whole program. You go from the program down to the bits. Downward causation. Abstraction moves physics.
=====
 Too reductionist for me. Science is built on methodology and collective agreement among peers but not logic per se.
=====
 It’s a free download. Worth the read esp if you’re a computer geek. It’s nice seeing it all laid out finally.
====
 Nah, hard evidence and statistical meta analysis isn’t all of science.It’s usually publish-or-perish, academic politics and seeking a tinge of relevence to MAYBE get a decent spot as a chair on a committee later.But inbetween it all, science happens too.
====
 This and two others to follow is a breakdown I’ve been wanting to see forever It’s how it plays in my head but actually seeing somebody else draw it out so nicely – I think I went “squee” like a fangirl.
3. For me, I never read a paper where I kept saying, “That’s correct. Yes, that’s right”. the whole time. I look for flaws. I couldn’t find any.
===
 What’s amazing with computers and why they’ve always been my love, is that you can do ANYTHING hardware in software, anything software in hardware, and it’s logically equivalent. On top of that, you can work on ANY of these levels to accomplish your goals BUT you need to end up with an Application Program as the most basic irreducible unit for it is only WITH that level that a computer DOES anything.BUT also, you don’t know what’s happening at the lower levels based on the high, nor the high based on the low.It’s all “black box” from each other.Quite marvelous.
=====
Please say if you find any flaws or doubts with it. My view is biased. I’m online friends with but mostly a fan of George Ellis, his way of thinking and his work in philosophy of science, particularly his critiques of the directions of theoretical physics a few years back… and plus I was in agreement with that paper’s way of thinking ANYWAY as it mirrors how I think.So, I can easily be blind to possible flaws and welcome doubt.
====
  I also love annotating. What do you use to annotate with? [I have a whole thing I wrote once on “Why humans are so easily convinced by boxes and arrows” as justification of why I like them.
—-
 Humans make choices. Go / no-go. Keep / discard / look at later. Criteria varies.
—–
  I use congruence with my thinking as my starting point. As soon as I find congruence, I doubt it. I look for flaws. I don’t trust my easy agreement and break it down until I find a flaw.Usually I do. Sometimes I can’t. Sometimes it’s YEARS before I find it later.My goal? Authenticity of self. Easy to fake. Put on airs. Follow another’s plan without knowing it. But self? What is that? Still working on it. Nobody else can, so.
======
 I’ve been programming since I was 11. 47 now. Never touched C++ but I dabbed in assembly only a little.You CAN peek to the lower levels for tweaking. But it’s still black box. The volume of uniqueness that happens at lower levels is SO tremendous that humans simply can’t work with more than a little speed tweak here and there.
=====
  That’s your morality code. You are welcome to it as your guide.My morality code is: Is communication happening? If so, it is functional.

 I’m probably not adverse to that all but I am not much of a joiner.But as an old green screen VAX Wizard, dialup, BBS, Usenet, early 90s internet advocate, who fell in love with online at 17 and 30 yrs later I’m still here, I’m certainly in that webbing somewhere, somehow.I’ve uploaded my brain in several ways already.My favorite is putting it on gopher protocol. Who uses that anymore? Still valid though.

  https://data.mendeley.com/datasets/92825j2d2r/1 I got an DOI: 10.17632/92825j2d2r.1DOI is supposed to “last forever” unlike http — will it? I dunno. But they’re trying. :
=====
 Oh, I classified a portion of it in Dewey Decimal. That was useful as I know where my missing pages would “fit” on a standard library shelf.https://data.mendeley.com/datasets/2ggd5pyngv/1
=====
  AND I was backing up so many of my shitty Vines to Internet Archive, clogging it up, they gave me my own corner of the Internet Archive.Only got 10000 of them up. 15000 missing but coub has the rest too :)I hate losing data.https://archive.org/details/kennethudut

 There’s way more streaming live than can be captured just yet. Storage capacity still isn’t there.
=====
 Patterns can be compressed though, which is one of the marvels Shannon’s information theory brought out nicely.Most folks communicate in standard chunks. Meme-type writing is easiest. You can simply COUNT the number who say “Hitler did nothing wrong” and have a list of names in a jiffy.More complex is style. The Dewey Decimal Classifier http://act-dl.base-search.net/textclassifier took my writings and compared it with styles of thousands of academic papers it had consumed and found patterns within and made probability matches.For example, what you just wrote with the rainbow head man came up as this:
=====
 Well, I’m not a joiner of groups but I dabble in the outskirts.Mostly though, I try to put “myself” out there as much as I can.Back in 1990 we shared voices online, for those of us with 8-bit sound and microphones.Here’s 18 yr old me. A bit squeaky but not too bad.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP6G7HvQ5-E

 Well, I’m skeptical of most all-in-one theories. Takes me a long time to adopt any as I’m always looking for the scam angle.BUT, I’m pro-religion mostly and one based on human/computer interfacing communicating in feedback loops through the global brain, I’m alright with.
=====
 My current thinking is thus:Ontologies consist of concepts.
A concept is a theory of a category.Communication conflicts arise from conflicting ontologies
====
  I’ve eliminated epistemology from my concern, although I know it’s what I’m doing. I just don’t talk about it anymore and focus on ontologies.
====
 Rather than finding what doesn’t fit in your ontology, modify it so it does.
====
 WAIT – TurboC? I used that before, although I was more a TurboPascal guy. (sorry :) )
====
  I can read C better than Pascal anymore. I try to train myself to read every computer language.Brainfuck took me a bit though but I can read it a LITTLE… slowly.

 1+1=3 though. Take it as a whole.

 A
B
AB
it’s 3.

 I don’t count on them. I’m boring Internet Archive has it as their mission so they will try. Companies like FB and Google I don’t trust (which is why I have http://icopiedyou.com – as I’ve had my past wiped before).And for govt? having worked a bit in and with, they’re no better than any corporate structure, individuals scrambling for temporary relevence and promotion.
===
  It is a counter to:
the notion that:
1+1=3 is an absurdity. I do not have your words.
“It’s” refers to “answer” as in “It is possible to reframe such that 1+1=3″.1+1=3
A+B=AB3 entities exist. 3.
====
 idiots or power hungry are usually in charge. My rule of thumb (heuristic): Anybody who wants power probably should not get it.
=====
 Religion: something one ascribes supreme importance to.This is the generalized sense of “religion” and is almost always the form I use.
  I avoided dealing with politics beyond voting (generic sense of civic duty – Boy Scouts) ’til about 2014.At that point, I took the Political Compass test and declared:”Ok. I did it. Now I’m back to no politics”.That was 2014.
====
 Earth Day, 2015, I declared myself President of Earth.Google thought so too for 9 months. It was fun. I’m still President. I ask nothing of anybody. Just do as you do.
===
 Well, I show up way over here. Took it 3x. 2014. 2016 2018,Took others too but of this one, only 3x. I only move a tiny bit each time so I was consistent for a 4 yr period. Good enough to trust it as my bias.
====
 My collective is already here. I don’t understand fighting for dirt.
====
 AS President, I am bound by minimal interfering. BUT in my personal role, I have activated.
====
  Indeed, that’s my preferred sense. In conversations about religion I try to shift to my ontology as I find it’s more pragmatic.
====
 My initial announcement:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_eCT3XY0L0
“As millions of you have complained about being unable to learn the Lyrics to the new Earth Song, I decided, as President of Earth, to upload it to Youtube to allow the greatest number of you to learn the lyrics.
You are free to sing the song at any time of the day or night.You get a bonus if it shows up in your dreams and if you teach it to others.For every person who sees this, you receive a prize of becoming the Head of any Agency you wish.Any special Commisison, Committee, Oversight program, is yours.Just ask and it shall be given.–Your President.”

 USA? Bah. It’s been heading towards austerity for years now. This is an acceleration. My focus is Earth. Why?a) I give my opinions freely as if I am President of Earth and believe that the world would be better if everybody just listened to me.This makes that official. I am Earth President.b) Space is limited to humans right now and I will only exist online after 2019-2060(ish) and as the Intergalactic Computer Network (J.C.R. Licklider, 1963) can BARELY gets its dark side of the moon internet connection stable, I’m focusing on where I’ll probably be.Johnny Appleseed is one of the archetypes I follow so..

 Summarizing is my problem. A BIG problem.That’s why I had an AI go through my writings to find patterns.I have a categorization problem and an editing problem.I thought the thesaurus I made by crosslinking a thesaurus with itself would help. Nope. Sat on it for a year and just published the junk. Free on internet archive – not worth $$.https://www.amazon.com/Out-Context-Cross…/dp/B00KFOQIG6

 Time is my other main issue. Results of my DDC analysis of about 9500+ of my writings over 27 years and THIS is what I most write about in a way that matches with academic papers:DDC
115 Time
120 Epistemology, causation & humankind
122 Causation

 Not much is written about it in papers and it’s a shame as knowing your own pace is crucial to being a well-adjusted individual. Your own tempo. World has overlapping paces and tries to pull you in, push you out, mangle your music up.
====
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQvcpAG682E I did a 12m ramble to confirm what I’d discovered on testing my piano playing speed.I suspected it would match 270 bpm or a multiple or division and it does, confirmed by a random backbeat I found that was at 90 bpm and added afterwards.

—–
 Music only sounds cohesive because I found a match to my speaking rate which was indeed related to 270 bpm.

270bpm is my piano playing happy speed – triplets at 270 bpm. I could say it’s 810 bpm but that’s not really true as they exist as triplets and not as individual notes.
