seems detrimental to progress.
but then what is progress?
or the lack thereof.
one of those words looks like it doesn’t exist.
but they both exist.
one just isn’t used very much.
the state of humanity.
after all, our nervous (system) resting potential is -70 mV.
except for special ones. they are smaller, but larger.
depending on how you want to say it.
in the end, they are more negative.
people seem to take surveys voluntarily when they have really strong feelings about it (usually negative, i think). too bad i don’t have data to back that up. how can i make a survey to help prove my idea is statistically significant? would i give a voluntary survey and then assume my hypothesis is correct (and adjust my data to show this) and compare that to the null hypothesis. hm. i don’t know.
robert frost wrote a famous poem about choosing a path on the diverging road. it goes “blahbalbhlabhalbhabh … I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference”. so the interpretation is to be an individual and nonconformist and cool stuff like that. (which isn’t really right according to some because the roads are said to be about the same.) anyways, taking the common interpretation and the famous lines out of context like it is often done, it never really says that choosing that one road was much better. it just made a difference, didn’t say with positive results. and why would people want to take the path of more resistance? that’s annoying.
(12:20:23 AM) chrisxors: i was in class
(12:20:25 AM) chrisxors: dead clock
(12:20:26 AM) chrisxors: i looked at it
(12:20:28 AM) chrisxors: 12 hour clock, dead
(12:20:30 AM) chrisxors: so i was like
(12:20:35 AM) chrisxors: at least it’s right twice a day
(12:20:39 AM) chrisxors: then
(12:20:40 AM) chrisxors: i was like
(12:20:44 AM) chrisxors: what if it was incorrect
(12:20:45 AM) chrisxors: but spinning faster
(12:20:55 AM) chrisxors: then it’d be right more than twice a day
(12:21:06 AM) chrisxors: but since it’s analog, it’d still be infinitely more wrong than it was right
(12:21:13 AM) chrisxors: but then
(12:21:16 AM) chrisxors: speed it up and up
(12:21:21 AM) chrisxors: when it’s infinitely fast
(12:21:24 AM) chrisxors: it’ll be right infinitely
(12:21:25 AM) chrisxors: however
(12:21:27 AM) chrisxors: it’ll also be wrong infinitely
(12:21:29 AM) chrisxors: and
(12:21:39 AM) chrisxors: it’ll be infinitely wrong infinitely more than it’s infinitely right
(12:21:42 AM) chrisxors: in other words
(12:21:47 AM) chrisxors: not only is one infinite bigger than another
(12:21:55 AM) chrisxors: one infinity is infinitely bigger than another infinity
(12:21:59 AM) chrisxors: !!!
(12:22:05 AM) chrisxors: as for what the lecture was about
(12:22:07 AM) chrisxors: i do not know
life is based on a bunch of fundamental assumptions. what happens when the assumption is found to be wrong? i guess it wasn’t fundamental then. oh, the irony.
