Response to NYT article, part 1
I typically am cautious of the press. Every time the press and I cross paths, it simply causes trouble for me or those around me. I while ago I met with Matt Schwartz from the New York Times Magazine, under the explicit condition that I would be covering philosophy and history and not my personal business. I feel I didn't really get what I want out of this exchange, as the important philosophy I conveyed to him was only conveyed in short bits that I think were taken out of context. What I feel was most important and totally untouched in the mainstream media so far, the history troll organizations, was not covered at all. I am doing pretty well and I risked a lot to spread a message that was beneficial for humanity to a reporter and he basically just made a short biographical note about me. Nevertheless, people may be googling me and finding my lj, so I have given maybe a very small soapbox to stand on.

I've got some deeply veiled gnosis to share about the nature of reality, about ancient Gods, and about the future of humanity. I had to watch the market carefully and also join several nearly dead religious cults to completely understand it all. So here goes.

Posit 1: We are living in a simulation

The more I study mathematics, physics, history and the natural world, the more I know that this reality is a construct created to test us. Evidence of this is everywhere-- from "the edge of chaos", and the natural tendencies to sublimate order from chaos and chaos from order in a manner that can only be described as magical. Everything is clearly algorithmically designed. As an engineer, I recognize the spirals, the logarithms, the mmorpg-style reskinning of already finished creatures to place in different areas. I'm not saying natural selection isn't real, and a very true part of the programming of the universe. But there are certain aspects of reality that are too complex to leave to chance. Divine creation and natural selection aren't mutually exclusive: both are correct.

Posit 2: As part of the programming of this simulation, mankind is regularly and rhythmically presented with crisis, and crises precipitate change

Bear with me.

Remember when Moses commanded the Jews to slaughter those who worshipped the calf idols? Let's analyze the reason for this.

This was the age of Taurus, the bull. The cow was sacred to everyone in the age of Taurus. This prohibition upon the slaughter of cattle came out of necessity. A farmer would have his cow, and in times of crop disease or drought, he may out of desperation butcher his cow to feed his family. Next year, he would have no cow to work his fields or to butcher, and thus his family would starve. However, the philosophy of Taurus was not sustainable with the temporary population growth it enabled. This civilization that spawned in the fertile crescent eventually left vast deserts as its legacy, the direct result of this aggressive agrarian expansion. In response came rigid hierarchies, lack of upward mobility, prostitution and slavery.

So Moses saw the long-term destructive nature of the cow worshippers and came down from the mountain to kill them all, blowing the Ram's horn. Thus came the age of Aries, the age of the trader slash herder, the age of the Jews, and the dominant philosophy (pantheistic animal totemism) disappears everywhere but India, where unique environmental conditions (monsoons, heavy phosphorus deposits) make the old agrarian philosophy sustainable. What else can you do in a vast desert for food, except herd? So after the massive killing spree spurred by Moses, the population of civilization explodes yet again to strain its limits, causing prostitution, slavery, famine and chaos. Along comes Jesus, with yet another moral basis for humanity to live on. The dominant philosophy (Judaism) loses most of its market share to Christianity. So what was the solution to this resource crisis? What's the astrological sign you see Christians advertising on the backs of their cars?

That's right, the nordic invention of the fishing net saved humanity from the wrath of the apocalypse. Thus came the age of Pisces.

So we're at a new resource shortage. Global peak phosphorus happened in 1989. Phosphorus can be recovered though, so it isn't too critical, but it is definitely bad for growing grain. We consistently as a planet consume more grain every year than we produce. Eventually those fat stockpiles are gonna hit bottom, and then shit hits the fan. We have already seen tortilla riots in Mexico, and commodities shortages and export controls in nearly half the world. Oil is going to become a little scarcer, but isn't going to run out anytime soon. The Saudi fields have peaked and Kuwait's are about to do so, but it doesn't matter. There was a strategic decision to bleed the middle east dry of oil long ago. We still have plenty of shit we can drill elsewhere. America's deserts have plenty of light sweet crude, I assure you.

So what resource are we going to run out of? There's a very important one, one that is required to grow things. One that is required for human beings to survive. T Boone Pickens just put 200mil of his own money into securing rights to this resource. The first ETF for this resource appeared a couple years ago, and Sydney is opening the first futures market for this resource. My hedge fund heavily speculates in this resource.

What resource is this? What age are we coming into? Fill in the blank!

This is the dawning of the age of ________.

Now you've got it.i

I did get the impression that he neglected to detail your viewpoints, but the end result is an article about trolling, which he has done fairly well IMO.

You didn't get the shaft, nor what you actually wanted. Could be worse.

I don't know if your explorations of religion led you to the same conclusions it lead me, but I don't feel the truth is very hard to unravel at this point if you open your eyes. I'm completely un-American, I've spent half my life in the Czech Republic and the other half in the Netherlands, the latter being especially easy to mistake for a safe haven of freedom. The long-term negative impact of the democratic herd mentality is coming into clearer view every day. Inaction shrouded in an ever growing veil of illusion, maya, media, bullshit. What shall we do about it, gentlemen?

Re: gnosis

I propose joining forces. An army to fuck the world up, gentlemen. It's long past the point of decay. It needs a cleansing.

I've always favored "loving people" into destruction to "hating people" into destruction. It's a common fact that the average person will react to both similarly - pure unadulterated love/hatred.

That's just my personal preference, though. I completely agree with all thought, everything along those lines. The world needs a messiah.

excellent post

the future of mass communication is ubiquitous anonymity. The kind of ideas that that sort of system spawns when everyone is hooked into it is going to make for some lulzy times. and by lulzy I mean the apocalypse.

OK. First nobody here believes that he is serious about this crap right?
I mean to be a troll doesn't take much intelligence,but nobody can be that stupid.

"deeply veiled gnosis" ahaha. Oh I lol'd so hard.

also, can i have a car?

I must say, that I completely disagree with Posit 1. If it looks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, if walks like a duck, then it's probably a duck. If the experienced perceptions of reality are universally experienced, then the chances are pretty damn good that people are experiencing reality is it truly is instead of a simulation. Using the layman argument, anyone can see that the world around us exists.
So, the burden of proof to show that the world is a simulation rests on your shoulders. Your credibility as a hacker has no bearing on whether or not reality exists. You claim that evidence exists, yet present none but make obscure references to logarithms, spirals and all sorts of fancy nonsense about chaos and order.
weev From: weev Date: August 2nd, 2008 07:11 am (UTC) (link)
You can argue against posit 1 when you do so in a logically valid manner. Whether or not the world is actually a simulation would not be affected by the fact that we can all experience the same simulation. People share simulations every fucking day. For example, Livejournal. Douche.

I wonder if the NYTimes article caused you to look inward at the personal reasons underlying your own casual misanthropy? The article being, of course, superior to simple trolling - an intelligent, concerted deconstruction of your motivations on an international stage is a bit more cutting than random abuse spewed anonymously. And in the end it's all the worse, because we're not mad at you, you're not the villain that you'd like to be, we just feel bad for you.

But then, after reading the nonsense in the post here I doubt if you're capable of introspective thought.

Resource strain is a part of natural selection. Developed minds allow humans to create their advantages over other creatures. They spread. They start to strain their resources as social tendencies tend to encourage the destruction of natural selection amongst our species. Then when the resources finally max out, those unwilling to advance, change, and adapt are weeded out. Those that can adapt are the fittest creatures, so they survive.

Re: Strain

I find it paradoxical that we believe in the natural process of selection, but despise the thought of people being killed in wars and little babies dying from malnutrition in 3rd world countries... and it confuses me that we view as almost noble the efforts by researchers to find cures for terminal illnesses, and the philanthropy that supports this kind of work, not to mention all the people who participate in the '-athons'... just doesn't seem to make sense.

There Are No Gods

Evolution is random. If you think there's such a thing as intelligent design, take a look at how the asshole, colon, vagina, and vulva are wired together in humans. Then compare that to placental mammals. Or take a look at transposons, retrotransposons, and LTRs in DNA.

I'm surprised that you're surprised that you didn't get exactly what you wanted from the piece. You were misled by a Jew, working for the media, which is 90% run by Jews/Fox. You got "carried" by the media. I'm ashamed.

At the least... I learned that you're "a powerful friend" o_o.

In other news: I have beliefs very similar to your Posits, and look forward to reading more.
