Who Are the Racists: Conservatives or Liberals?

comment on neogaf political correctness thread | Diet Racism is a real problem

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1303803



Comment on thread.   The thing is racist language and acts, and any hate filled sexist language, i can understand barring that from mainstream line ups, if that's the wish of corporations.   But here's the thing if someone wants to cater to such audiences, they should be free to do so.   This idea of banning products from even being made or existing anywhere is wrong.

Much of what's been done to me by society I consider highly offensive, and in some way akin to torture and worse than most any form of abuse.  I put up with it, I don't say oh I'm going to remold society and put everyone in their place.  

Freedom of expression needs to be protected, don't want to be offended, go into your own home, go into your own little safe bubble communities, and hope this, hope these people respect you.  Even your own house is not a truly safe space, aggressions and no not micro ones, but full blown violation of all your rights can take place at the hand of criminals who may do as they please with you.   Give thanks to those that honor your wishes for censorship, especially in the public sphere.   But do not attempt to censor others by force, to restrict their speech and actions because it offends you.   It is their body, their voice, and it is a public space, not your house, want restrictions go to your house, put on ear plugs, etc.   Do not attempt to make the entirety of reality a safe space.
 
This is the century of post humanity, beings able to impose their will on the entirety of mankind, and reshape the world.   I believe censorsship and political correctness to be an aberration, an aberration that needs correcting.  If I'm wrong, the ideal new race will view things differently in all likelihood with their superior intellect and knowledge, but if I'm right it doesn't matter what you or your politicians do the fight for freedom of expression lay in the hands of superior beings, beings that will make superior decisions, whatever they may be.

switch 12 | surface pro | ipad pro | bamboo omni stylus | comments

An artist youtuber's review of the alpha switch 12



Same youtuber's channel comparing ipad pro and surface pro.



Well the ipad pro seems to be the superior drawing quality system, at least for now, but application wise the surface pro features more variety.

Ipad pro is at very very good price(128GB small 9.X version starting at 700$), but I've heard in the first half of next year ipad pro 2 may arrive with noticeably better specs, which may result in further price reductions for existing models, and the new models if priced competitively and having innovative new features could be something to consider.  I've also heard a new surface pro may come or be announced at the start of next year, so we'll see.

Regards the switch, the switch alpha 12 has the innovative liquid cooling, and while the stylus might not be as precise in all apps, I know the benefits of varying line thickness through pressure,  but I can easily handle fixed thickness lines, and manually switching the thickness, or using the limited more finicky and limited pressure sensitivity and I don't mind doing so.    'Regards the artist youtuber comments on cooling, cooling can be for keeping the entire product cool, but the most important thing is to keep the chips within reasonable temperature, so long as that is accomplished, without the product becoming burning hot, it is a success in my view.  Regard amdtech's battery comment(another youtuber who reviewed the switch), you can get and carry an external battery quite easily, and they're quite cheap 20-50$  and you get all day battery, around 5 hours is fine given that this switch 2 in 1 can be had for a very good price with 256GB an i5 and 8GB of ram with included stylus, iirc, in costco.

Right now my old tablet's limited space is becoming an issue, and I could use a new tablet with more processing and more space and more ram.   I'd like the ipad pro, but apple has to unify their OSes somehow(OSx, now macOS, and iOS), I want desktop class full featured ides in my tablet, windows is offering that.   I prefer the apple brand, and I'm willing to accept a premium price, but I need certain features to be available.  AMD support, use of amd gpus on some of their product line, is ace, as I'm a fan of amd, but I also need software support, and a stylus.   Backward compatibility with apps across OSes is not the issue, the issue is present, or near future full featured apps being available for both iOS and macOS.

For now, I can wait till next year.  But if the acer alpha switch 12 has a killer black friday deal, I will cave, I'm a sucker for good deals, right now the price is killer and very tempting any further drop and it will be quite hard to resist.

Also while I'm willing to pay a premium for devices, it stands to reason, that this is within reason.   I'm willing to pay a few hundred extra, perhaps a few thousand, but it is proportional to product specifications and available comparable products from the competition.  I'm not going to pay twice, triple or more the price of a competing product with similar specifications.

For now the bamboo omni(49.99 available november), might feed my stylus craving with my s7 edge phone(vr feature is a plus, as is samsung pay's compatibility with traditional old school atm/credit card machine readers, and micro sd compatibility, and headphone jack, and freedom to move files in and out.).   From the renown brand of wacom, it offers what seems like an ace product for very low cost.  The bamboo omni, does not appear to have pressure sensitivity, though I guess that may depend on phone capabilities, as it seems to mimic a finger but more precisely.   It works across a wide variety of phones and tablets, but I've not read a review.  Heard it might have issues with screen protectors, but that may depend on the brand of protector, material and thickness. 

I may very well get an iphone 8 next year, but again depends on the features.  I want miracast, augmented or mixed reality support or at least vr support, if magic leap is released or announced next year I want compatibility with it or offer of a similar product.  REAL innovation.


Here's the bamboo omni trailer


What Would a Machine as Smart as God Want? | scientific theology | god state | commentary

---Scientific theologian Freeman Dyson on the long-term future of intelligence: "I do not make any clear distinction between mind and God. God is what mind becomes when it has passed beyond the scale of our comprehension.” -source link

  ---When I interviewed Dyson in 1993, he expressed confidence that the quest for knowledge would never end, because knowledge is infinite.-source link -source link
 
If the hypotheses collectively known as the finitude of the possible turn out correct even partially correct, it may be possible that such may in some sense effectively come to an end, if there's an intimate relation between the finite and the infinite, such that the infinite is bound by the finite, 'omniscience' may be possible with a vast yet finite construct', such a being may actually restrict its knowledge and powers to further enjoyment and consumption of art, temporarily or indefinitely, depends on what is set in motion upon acquisition of the god state.

Not sure, what such would seek, but at least for now someone like me seeks art production, preservation and consumption.  A being in god state, likely has no issue with preservation or production, so all that'd remain is art consumption.  So at least for me unless increasing knowledge and intelligence causes me to change such views, it'd seem eventually art consumption would be the end state goal.

On the end of all modern human societies and the birth of a new world order.

On the end of all modern human societies and the birth of a new world order.

The fabrication of indistinguishable from real evidence of all forms, the chaos of future technological progress.     Video, audio, even dna evidence.   It is likely that eventually all manner of evidence will be manufacturable at will,  evidence indistinguishable from the real deal.   
 
 Eventually it may even likely come a time, as foreseen in science fiction, where memories can be altered and implanted.   Such that many may emerge as witnesses, and believe something that has been implanted in them thus making them truly false witnesses unknowingly.  Even the person may be innocent, but may remember and regret having done something they did not do, the memory merely implanted on them, perhaps to incriminate and to serve as a scape goat.
 
What happens in regards to crime, and the justice systems, when no evidence no matter its origin is no longer truly trustable?  When no number of witnesses, no confession, not even an advanced brain scan might detect these fabrications, these forgeries?
 
It seems to me that a system of rehabilitation, no longer punishment will be necessary for the future.   Forgiveness and rehabilitation in case of criminal actions, or suggestions of criminal actions.
 
Human society as is cannot survive the power of technology, technological progress, it will shatter before the light of truth, the entire world, a world built on lies, it will crumble before the purity of the divine light.
Freedom, Security, and Time, unlimited.
 
The fate of the world, the divine path of man written in the digital physical firmament, thus the gears move, the cogs in the machine following their predetermined path towards the perfect ideal world.    Knowledge of the nature of the world will not only open the path towards powers only dreamed of by the ancients, but it will purify the mind and enable untold beauty, grace, and perfection upon the world.
 
The laws of men, their constitutions, their religions, their governments, they will all come before the altar of truth, they will all be tested, they will all be sacrificed and from their blood will emerge the new world.   That is not to say that the current order may not remain in some form, conserved for posterity, but that atop the world a new layer will be built upon.
 
PS
 
Any text showing say dependence on something like witnesses as determinants of justice, unless it clarifies these as temporary or to be abrogated as evidence in the future, shows signs of being of human origins, as any divine origin would show knowledge of the power of the eternal truth, the technological potential to manifest artificial false witnesses,  such that witnesses have no value.

Comment on lithium batteries vs nickel metal hydride.

Comment on lithium batteries.  Lithium batteries are good if you remember to keep them charged, though chemistries are improving so things might've changed or might change for the better.  Right now, if a lithium battery is left to itself without charging for a few years, the battery loses charge and inflates becoming nonfunctional.   Nickel Metal Hydride might occupy more space and probably weight more, and might be more expensive, but some nickel metal hydride products claim to maintain a charge for over 10 years, they also claim thousands of recharge cycles vs the usual hundreds for lithium.  

So hypothetically if you get products with 10+years of charge and thousands of recharge cycles, you can just store large quantities of such, and they should work with no trouble, hypothetically speaking.

All in all in terms of survival gear, it would seem Nickel Metal Hydride solutions like the eneloop brand seem better.   Though if you're near the beach, you have to keep them in some box, as my last eneloop battery terminals became oxidized while I was near the beach for a good portion of the year.  
There are charger powerbank devices that can charge the AA and AAA batteries and can also use the batteries to charge usb devices.  These battery power banks from various brands can be obtained at amazon with free shipping in many cases if you've prime

Costco sells the eneloop with non-powerbank(can charge batteries but can't use charger to charge usb devices from batteries) charger for a good price.

--A new “Windows Capture 3D Experience” app lets people use a smartphone to quickly and easily scan an object in 3D. The 3D capture app will initially be available only on smartphones that run Windows, but Microsoft will launch the app for other platforms moving forward. -source bgr link

Surface book, iirc, starts at 1499$ according to the above bgr source.  That seems like a good price.   The improvements from earlier models are good, and the battery life seems ace.


 The surface studio looks and sounds ace, but I think the price is a bit much.   At 1999.99 I'd consider it, at 1499.99-1799.99 it be killer.  But at 2999.99, well for that much money I could likely buy a high end superior gpu, a high framerate 3d monitor, lots of ram, 8+TB of hdd space, a high end ssd, and a superior cpu, and still have enough to likely buy an ipad pro too.   True building a custom pc and buying an ipad pro won't have the same features, but in many respects there are significant benefits to doing so.

Are You on the Wrong Side of History? | plus comment regards this youtuber's video





Comment on video : While I agree that people shouldn't give up on any fight they believe on.   The world in all likelihood is deterministic, as true randomness existing is dubious.   There is also the law of the living, survival of the fittest.   The fittest determine the future, in terms of genes, their information propagates more successfully.   Soon the mind will gain control over the very nature of life, and genetics will be under the control of information technologies. 



 With control over life itself, and the advanced technologies to preserve and backup information.  The integration of our digital technology with the ancient machinery of life, will allow for immortality.    It stands to reason as has happened as complexity increased, the fittest will prevail again, and the fittest minds will determine the future by having the most influence upon it.



Post-humanity need not agree with humanity's present moral compass, its superior knowledge, intellect and mind design, ensures that they are more capable and closer to the ideal of a perfect mind with perfect information.  And it is post-humanity that will determine the fate of the earth and all those on it.

Intrinsic information comment on october 26 2016

Brief comment on the concept of intrinsic information.

We can observe two types of intrinsic information:

one is within an explicit or an implicit pattern within the structure of the pattern.   This may imply or transmit a multitude of meaning depending on the eye of the beholder, the algorithms or context upon which the signal , or pattern, is present and its internal structure, which is observable or derivable.  But this first kind depends on richness of structure, there must be some structure that contains the information, and this structure can either be observed or derived from the pattern.

Another kind of intrinsic information, which may be called symbolic intrinsic information, black box information, can occur from a single, in some cases, virtually structure-less or minimal structure signal, which may be indistinguishable from similar signals used to transmit arbitrary information.   The structure of that which is represented or how the signal was obtain can be considered hidden and might not be easily derivable at least solely from the signal without context.

The content or intrinsic information of a symbolic nature, is one that emerges as a result of causal relations or correlations.    The signal might have correlation with an event, signal, pattern of arbitrary complexity.    Though possibly simple in nature, due to its correlation or causal relation that may result from hidden internal computational structure able to perform say complex pattern recognition, this black box element may transmit a clear signal indicating say the present, timing or other characteristic of an arbitrary complexity element.   By virtue of its causal relation or correlation with something else, it is a symbol and it represents something, the spatio-temporal correlation with something(be it a pattern or reality), grounds the symbol.

The universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, or is it? article link | comments

Five years ago, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three astronomers for their discovery that the universe is expanding at an accelerating pace. This led to the widespread acceptance of the idea that the universe is dominated by a mysterious substance named 'dark energy' that drives this accelerating expansion. Now, a team of scientists has cast doubt on this standard cosmological concept. The evidence for acceleration may be flimsier than previously thought, they say, with the data being consistent with a constant rate of expansion.-source sciencedaily news

Some physicists have speculated that perhaps if the universe can be made to contract infinite computational power could be obtained as well as infinite computational time.   This hypothesized state has been called the omega point, it is a highly controversial idea.   I would say that even if evidence for an omega point possibility mounted somehow, the conclusions derived by some regards the implications do not necessarily follow.

Ideas regarding extremely unusual, miracle like events being the product of such, are not necessarily needed as far as I see.  Though the reasoning behind such attributions need to be checked, to see if there's any valid reason to do so, especially if evidence mounted to suggest such a potential future.   In all likelihood to propagate a religious belief at most only the founder and perhaps a few of the followers need to have certain thoughts or ideas, this can occur via simple natural events without invoking exotic highly unlikely events that would border on physical law violation.

Claims that border on nonsensical have to be regarded as nonsensical, whatever their origin.    The likeliest explanation for nonsensical claims is mere natural events of common nature, not uncommon nature.  At most one might regard as extremely unlikely the inception of  ideas if some form of information could be sent, no extreme uncommon miracle like event need to ever occur.    Everything would seemingly be within order, for plausible deniability of involvement, though as said the possibility of involvement is likely unlikely and may very well have problems in terms of logic(as all things involving the consideration of possible time travel are.).

virtual machine commentary october 2016


Here’s a page discussing virtual machines and malware from 2016 relatively recent as of this posting.



By running the browser within a virtual machine, it would seem it would add an extra layer of protection.   At least it seems so, though I’m behind on my cybrary research, as I’ve focused more on art creation and knowledge of other fields besides cyber security.

A free virtual machine solution that is open source iirc is virtual box.  The operating system within the virtual machine can be a free linux version.   Thus within a windows 10 or mac environment or linux environment you could run a linux system with a browser, it won't be as efficient, but as others have commented it seems to add an extra layer of security.   

Software that monitors online activity and requests permission for new activities would also be promising, as would software encrypting all keyboard strikes, and or password safes like lastpass or true key would also be useful as the less a password is typed the better. 

Right now even legit sites have been afflicted by malware either through hacks or malware within compromised advertising, ads.    So any added security is a plus

Amazon price match deals if product is from amazon itself

quote—Have you ever bought something on Amazon only to see the price drop shortly after your purchase? Most likely, it’s happened to just about everyone who buys something on Amazon. So many in fact, that Amazon had to change its policy regarding price changes from 30 days down to 7 days. So right now if the price changes, you can only get the refund if it’s within one week of your purchase date.#Note: This Amazon price-change refund policy only applies to items shipped and sold by Amazon. If you’re buying from a different vendor who is selling on Amazon, you’ll just be directed to contact that vendor if the price dropped./—end_of_quote- source link

Also a reminder, as previously mentioned, some citi visas have a benefit that you can register a product for automated price comparison with hundreds of online sites for a better price, if one is found, I think you're given a refund for the difference, iirc.   I think it's called price rewind or something like that

new hacking attack for android phones 2016 october

Using Rowhammer bitflips to root Android phones is now a thing

Permission-less apps take only seconds to root phones from LG, Samsung and Motorola.-source arstechnica

"The breakthrough has the potential to make millions of Android phones vulnerable, at least until a security fix is available, to a new form of attack that seizes control of core parts of the operating system and neuters key security defenses...

 An app containing the researchers' rooting exploit requires no user permissions and doesn't rely on any vulnerability in Android to work. Instead, their attack exploits a hardware vulnerability, using a Rowhammer exploit that alters crucial bits of data in a way that completely roots name brand Android devices from LG, Motorola, Samsung, OnePlus, and possibly other manufacturers."-source arstechnica
 
New hacking technique makes many major brand android phones vulnerable for now.   Very dangerous stuff, and this is still human hacking.   If a collective of artificial general intelligence systems of similar to human level can be accelerated significantly, run faster than real time, it stands to reason that all digital systems will be compromised in short order.   Human developers won't be able to keep up with a machine that can thoroughly analyze code and generate exploits perhaps within minutes of any software release or update.   Virtual Full Access to all digital systems will allow for unprecedented superiority in cyberspace.
 
But of course that is but one of the applications of mastery of true intelligence, the power of the science of mind design, it can also accelerate all forms of progress.   Mathematical progress specially, as that does not tend to require complex physical simulations that may slow things a bit, though through mathematical and computer science progress simulation rate may be accelerated substantially through the discovery of theoretically optimal exact algorithms and theoretically optimal heuristic algorithms.

K-Byte $12 fingerprint scanner review (with lastpass setup)

Free shipping from amazon if you've prime.   Tested it on windows 10 pc with solid state.   Windows easily logs in, and the windows setup is very very easy, no need to use any cd setup or anything else, just connect it go into the windows account menu in settings, setup a pin and add fingers, without installing anything as said.   The windows pin is bound to the hardware and requires hardware access to be useful, from what I've heard, unless you reuse it elsewhere knowledge of it is useless without the hardware.   I recommend at least 8 digit pin for security, and won't be needed, unless hardware failure occurs, if you've got multiple prints scanned even bodily injury won't impede access. The device seems to work without trouble so far and logs very very quickly.



The following is some youtuber's review of the k-byte fingerprint scanner, the youtuber used last pass which is a highly recommended by many solution.   But at least for windows 10 login no additional software should be needed, don't know if the biometrics has any requirements at the motherboard cpu level, but at least even one of my budget systems ran it without issue.

More comments on the finitude of the possible hypothesis and god state hypothesis of convergence

The number π is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, commonly approximated as 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter "π" since the mid-18th century, though it is also sometimes spelled out as "pi" (/paɪ/).-wiki

 The Bailey–Borwein–Plouffe formula (BBP formula) is a spigot algorithm for computing the nth binary digit of pi (symbol: π) using base 16 math. The formula can directly calculate the value of any given digit of π without calculating the preceding digits. The BBP is a summation-style formula that was discovered in 1995 by Simon Plouffe and was named after the authors of the paper in which the formula was published, David H. Bailey, Peter Borwein, and Simon Plouffe.[1] Before that paper, it had been published by Plouffe on his own site-wiki

Some have hypothesized that the number pi might contain all possible information within its digit sequence, if I recall correctly, this hasn't been verified, but seems likely given its properties from what I hear.

The formula for generating pi, is an example of what I call an implicit pattern.  I call formulas or algorithms that define or describe spatial, temporal, spatiotemporal sequences of elements or digits as implicit patterns.   The produced sequences, the raw data I call the explicit pattern.  E.G say a particular clothing pattern, there may be an algorithm for producing it, which is a form, implicit, of the pattern, but there is also the raw visual pattern itself, which is more explicit.

 The finitude of the possible suggests, that there likely exists a class of implicit patterns that can describe all possible information.  Suggestions for these have already likely been made, as the algorithms that are believed capable of generating all computable universes can likely qualify.  But there is also the possibility, hinted at, that there is also not just an implicit pattern but an explicit finite pattern that might bind all that is possible, and larger patterns might not offer truly meaningfully more, meaning might peak at a certain finite level, though as said this is hypothetically speaking, it may or may not be the case.   If it turned out to be true it would in essence allow for a finite amount of data to in essence allow access to all possible information, probably in some form of procedural generation kind of way.

Regards the hypothesized god state.  As I've hypothesized previously, an accumulation of freedom, security and time, has the potential to at the limit grant virtual equivalence with what has been described as god, so I've termed it the god state.   Absolute security, Absolute Freedom, Absolute time, grants immortality, omnipotence, omniscience, etc.

   If knowledge is absolute, the mind design is the optimal design, and intelligence is at the limit of the possible, and if determinism is true, it would seem that there should be convergence of behavior.   Though variations in mind design, as well as minute errors in knowledge before reaching this state could allow for divergence of behavior, as chaos like phenomena might cause minute differences to be magnified and result in unpredictable behavior.    There's also the possibility of multiple optimal mind designs that may lead to slightly or even vastly different behavior.  

More knowledge is needed regards mind design to know whether there would be convergence or divergence.   But my belief is that hypothetically speaking as a being nearrs perfection and becoming the greatest godlike being, there will be convergence.   This is why even if many beings attained the state, it is likely it would be like a hall of mirrors and the difference between such beings might not exist, as they'd be instances of the same exact pattern, they would all have all the properties intrinsic to the pattern.

Intrinsic to the pattern, or intrinsic information, refers to all that is implied or carried along with the pattern, properties that come along with an instance of the pattern.   For example a specific sequence of characters can be looked in different ways and means different things from different points of view, it may also have an infinite number of implications, all that is intrinsic and part of the pattern.  In terms of a spatiotemporal pattern related to a mind, if we assume determinism, there would be causal implications in certain environments and upon passage of time.
