Warm and dry and a will to survive bro, things will get better. Have read a lot of your posts which have found quite interesting and articulate. Gonna have to pull you up on this one tho. Am pretty sure that most people out in the cold are better off than those that were persecuted by the nazi SS or Mao's barbarians
Thanks for the compliment, my friend. I actually thought about deleting that post, and it was only the result of a somewhat deplorable epiphany. Granted, I am warm and dried off most of the time now, but there was this time in my life where I was a popsicle on a slip and slush. What germinated that thought was two parts: 1. I watched the Ted Talk with that scientist talking about how a tomato could be something created by our mind, and isn't really a tomato, otherwise. Also, he talked about how a train isn't really a train, etc. 2. I was having a bad day at work, and walked outside to -9 degree weather.
To make matters worse, on point number 2, when I opened the trunk of my car, all this snow avalanched off and fell into it. I certainly wasn't dressed for the -9, hell froze over weather, either. The wind began to hit me like a million icy razors mocking my shivering and frozen blood. My immediate thought was, "How the fuck can anybody think this shit is a simulation? How the fuck is some guy making a living out of telling us stupid shit like a tomato isn't a tomato if you shut your eyes? Also, a train isn't really a train, but a product of your mistaken imagination?"
I imagined this guy out in this freezing cold, without out his mathematical theories in a nice, heated room. I thought to myself, "Hey buddy, have your primary consciousness theory fix this freezing ass shit!"
