Chapter 1: The Power of Love

The first step in my journey was realizing that it is impossible to defeat fascism with the power of love.

Unbelievably exhausted from test after test. But somehow I'm having a good day.

I am a simple bitch. If I see a giant sand worm, I boost.

The basic story here is that every time scientists have thought "we've finally done it, we've discovered the true mathematical nature of reality", they eventually prove themselves wrong, and proving themselves wrong has led to ever more accurate and beautiful descriptions. Often these new descriptions and discoveries are met with hostility with people who have decided "this is it, this is the final basis of reality", I don't need to give you examples of that, there are many in even the supposedly purely rational world of mathematics.

I think such occurrences are examples of where science as a discipline clashes with science as an ideology. When people think "this is it", that's when science becomes ideology. It's no surprise that this ideology merges with others, to form this sort of Simulationism and Singularism(?) we see today out of tech empires, or the absurdities of Lysenkoism in the USSR. Simplistic microeconomics used to "justify" capitalism.

Forum observation: Tiny details in the way people are presented a form go a long way to influence the actual content and tone of the actual post

Certain elements like dark/light mode, textarea size, avatar, pseudonym options, voting options (+1, ❤️, ⭐ etc...) all have a subtle, but noticeable effect

90% of my problems with this class is my professor can't use a damn computer.

I wouldn't have taken this class if I didn't need it to graduate, so it's not like I can drop and take it with a not trash prof.

Blazing hot take
