Also, not developing the notion of Religion as a method of social control, thus, part of the Technocratic Union, looks to me like a terrible lost chance.

I'm headset on developing a NWO methodology or a fullfledged TU faction called Kyriarchy intended to represent social control through paternalistic values of tradition and "what's good and proper" moralism.

I feel that there is a disconnect between the intended fiction behind Arete and actual implementation.

I'm having a hard time articulating it, but there it is. I'll try to expand on it if anybody cares about this.

Mage the Ascension's system of Spheres looks nice, but it absolutely gets in the way of quick magical effect adjudication until you have a super-strong sense of how do spheres work.

I *want* to enjoy Mage, yet it's a terrible, fiddly mess.

I'm not the diehard fan of Jim Raggi I once was, but god damn if that man doesn't get my exact sense of aesthetic.

unsolicited advice for people with marginalized identities interested in or currently fresh to academic life 

1) introducing yourself to faculty is not about the generalized benefits of social networking; it's about literally finding a lifeline and advocate for yourself for when shit inevitably hits the fan. your first points of contact in the department have a History with other people in the dept that you need to navigate, but those politics do not supersede your need for allies

Time theft is good and you should do as much of it as possible to make up for your stolen wages

Caveat to that last boosted toot: steal time **from your boss.** Do not steal time from your fellow workers. Do not add to your fellow worker's burdens.

So, let's try something here. players with experience with the X-Card, you're supposed to stop the game, no questions asked, as something became triggering for a player or GM.

How are you supposed to continue if you don't exactly know what is the trigger? You can't really ask when the card is used, no?

You know what they say: A stopped clock is unbound from the shackles of responsibility. It is no longer beholden to your control, oversight, or expectations. It is at peace. More free than you ever will be in your life.

Ableism 

It is very annoying to both point out that many things people take for granted as the lot in life for disabled people — isolation, poverty, institutionalization — are, in fact, intentional acts of violence.

That on top of being half of the unarmed people shot by police.

It is frustrating asking people to see that violence and death inflicted upon you is, in fact, both extant and bad.

Null meditation 

My words are formed by my mind,
My mind is formed by a complex network of beliefs and the feelings that are the feedback of those same beliefs.
Yet my beliefs are not things, but some sort of unspoken statement.
My words are made of echoes and the feelings that are the feedback of such echoes.

Those echoes are me.
I'm not even here.

The incredible grind I subjected myself from two weeks ago has just ended. I might find enough time to properly engage you guys over here. Someone posted an awesome link to a set of mental models that looks very promising.

After two weeks of very intense work (freelance translator-interpreter here), I feel more focused instead of less.

I'm not sure why.

@zachbrooks Redecentralize the internet. Liberate social media from commercial ownership. Enable communities to self-govern.

2: if you do a PhD in philosophy in the hope that you will finally feel clever, then you are wasting your time. you will only feel clever enough when you start being kind to yourself. and then it won't matter at all.
