Friends MOSTLY


Picture of a little girl swinging on a swingset

Friends mostly! I still do a lot of public posts, but non-friends are screened by default.

Make sure to read this first: http://fayanora.livejournal.com/838343.html

Buy my book! (science fiction)

Buy my dad's book! (nonfiction)

for existing friendsCollapse )

(Click the picture to get at least an idea of the meanings. Only "ingenuus memes" are defined there yet. That and the opposites of the others.)

Friends mostly. Mainly means there's a bunch of content friends-locked. Also, non-friends and anonymous posters are screened by default. If you are an ass in your comments, your comments will be deleted.

Comment to be added. And if you're an old friend getting a new LJ, let me know that information.

Friending must-knows:

1. I do not tolerate myself or my friends being made fun of for any reason. If I find you have done this, you will be unfriended and banned.

2. I NEVER do friend-culls. If you find you've been banned, it's either a mistake or for the above reason. If you believe it to be a mistake, let me know.

Also, there are three stages here:

1. There's an "Acquaintances" filter, for people I don't know very well. Not much more they get to see than public does, but some things. If you never see any friends-locked entries here, let me know. It seems I have to add people to the Acquaintances filter.

2. Friends - They see the most.

3. Multiplicity - Ask me about this one. It's got the most personal stuff of mine.

One last thing: Unless you're a friend, your comments to all posts will be screened.

Fun stuff and more information.Collapse )

A Thanksgiving Day Blessing

A Thanksgiving Day Blessing

I participate in the Circle of Life,
I participate in the Circle of Death,
I participate in the Spwii'Ny'Py.1

Many Thanks to my plant & animal siblings that gave their lives so my own may continue!
As I devour your flesh, I pray I will live a life worthy of your sacrifice.

I apologize, my Brethren, for any suffering you may have endured in life at the hands of my fellow humans,
And I hope you are at peace now in the Between-Life,
Or else Ferried back through the Waterfall from the Between-Life to your new lives.
Either way, I hope you are at peace.

As I eat, I remember that I will one day be eaten in turn,
My own flesh devoured and made into new flesh, new life.
I am thankful for this beauty and wonder.

We are all tempests, hurricanes of energy, galaxies of atoms,
Dancing, colliding, devouring, changing.
The dancers change, but the dance is eternal.
I am thankful we have had this dance.

Sahn-kia, da-zirrovais seh thiiah ahshah; Koh Soh La Kohrain.2

A brief analysis: As I wrote this, the mythos expanded. The Between-Life (Land of Eternal Childhood) doesn't have gates the way some Afterlives do, it is a realm separated from the realm of the living by an infinite falling of water from the Wellspring, one of the three major Powers of the Omniverse. (There's The Void, The Heart of the Chaos, and The Wellspring, representing nothingness, chaos, and order respectively.) Shyao'Shyoh, one of Djao-Kain's Aspects, ferries the dead to the Between-Life, through the Waterfall. I do not know if She ferries them on the return trip or not, but I'm getting the sense that She doesn't.

Anyway, this whole thing made me start thinking of reincarnation like a kind of water cycle; death is evaporation, the Between-Life is clouds, and then rebirth is rain.

1 = Spwii'Ny'Py: Circle of Life/Death

2 = Translates to "Many-Thanks, spirits of my food; You Are The All."

Happy Thursday! I mean Thanksgiving!

About a dozen different times today, I've tried telling people "Happy Thanksgiving!" and instead said "Happy Thursday!" (Oy, brain, WTF?) So Happy Thursday, everyone!

Solved the Matrix problem.

So there's long been people pointing out that the Machines in The Matrix using humans as batteries would be terribly inefficient, losing power rather than gaining it. Well, I may have a solution: maybe that's only what the humans freed from the Matrix thought they were being used for. According to a panel at OryCon, power satellites in space would be terribly inefficient in beaming power down to earth, or else dangerously good at it, so his suggestion was to make server satellites instead; a whole slew of tiny, paper thin satellites equipped with a recently created computer chip that is very resistant to radiation. This Server Sky, as he called it, would turn the power of the sun in space into a space based server that could connect people anywhere in the world to the Internet without cables that can be cut.

Then, in Echopraxia by Peter Watts, there's this thing called "Heaven," which is a thing where people who are suffering from Present Shock can go to live in a fantasy world they create. It's free because at the same time, their brains are being used as living computers, living servers, to process their version of the Internet through their subconscious mind.

Well, that got me thinking, what if the Machines were using humans in the same way, as living servers to subconsciously process data for them? It would be a lot more efficient than using them as batteries.

Just a thought, though. I still personally prefer my previous fan theory that the Matrix is like a nursing home the Machines keep their doddering old parent species in out odd compassion, and that it's nested, and nobody in that world had ever really been outside of the matrix, they just think they have because they saw through the first layer. But the two theories are not mutually exclusive.
