Allan Snyder - rTMS video from "On Creativity"

Network: Money Speech

The movie boring, although this was my favorite part.

Wednesday, October 13, 2010


Just started reading it today, free download, good.
"I work for the betterment of
everybody, not just some narrowly defined national interest, Pam. It's the agalmic future. You're still locked
into a pre-singularity economic model that thinks in terms of scarcity. Resource allocation isn't a problem
anymore - it's going to be over within a decade. The cosmos is flat in all directions, and we can borrow as
much bandwidth as we need from the first universal bank of entropy! They even found signs of smart matter -
MACHOs, big brown dwarfs in the galactic halo, leaking radiation in the long infrared - suspiciously high
entropy leakage. The latest figures say something like seventy percent of the baryonic mass of the M31 galaxy
was in computronium, two-point-nine million years ago, when the photons we're seeing now set out. The
intelligence gap between us and the aliens is a probably about a trillion times bigger than the gap between us
and a nematode worm. Do you have any idea what that means?"
Pamela nibbles at a slice of crispbread, then graces him with a slow, carnivorous stare. "I don't care: It's too
far away to have any influence on us, isn't it? It doesn't matter whether I believe in that singularity you keep
chasing, or your aliens a thousand light-years away. It's a chimera, like Y2K, and while you're running after it,
you aren't helping reduce the budget deficit or sire a family, and that's what I care about. And before you say I
only care about it because that's the way I'm programmed, I want you to ask just how dumb you think I am.
Bayes' Theorem says I'm right, and you know it."

Gödel's Theorem: The Very End of the Proof

Explanation of the theorem

What Now?
If you followed all that, you can now say with reasonable confidence that you "understand Gödel's theorem." That is, you understand why no formal mathematical system can ever hope to represent all statements about natural numbers.

As I see it, there are three directions you can go from here. The first direction is down, to a more mathematical level. The explanation I have given is very "high-level," and would not satisfy a real mathematician for an instant. By learning more about the math involved, you can work the proof to ever finer levels of detail, and make it ever more rigorous and bullet-proof.

The other way to go is up, to a more philosophical level. There are many people who believe that the human mind, based on neurons and physical principles, is just a very sophisticated formal system. Does Gödel's theorem imply the existence of facts that must be true, but that our minds can never prove? Or even stronger, that our minds can never believe—or strongest yet, ever conceive?

The third direction you can go is sideways, to lunch. Who wants to spend his whole life worrying about abstract mathematical theorems?

All the parts are coming together...

4ga lead wire, SCR, 3 main capacitors (there are probably going to be 5 of those guys on the final machine), the Cockcroft-Walten voltage multiplier, the wooden main coil frame.

Walter-Cronkite voltage multiplier

Put this together today:

Charged some of the 'lytics that'll be used in the TMS machine.......

FOOD! Scotch eggs and BONUS COOKIES!

Here are the scotch eggs I made today, I saw a picture of them on the internet and was amazed by the beauty of the beast. So I finally made my way to New Frontiers, got some habenero pork sausage and breadcrumbs (the Japanese kind whatever they're called) and made these yum yums up. I only ate half of one, it was really good!
Here are the bonus cookies I baked a couple weeks ago:

Catch 'em all

This is a pretty good diagram of what to do to in order to balance all your treatments.

Beautiful lamp find at goodwill

She's a beaut ain't she? 3.99 at goodwill, has 2 brightnesses. I just love the simple stainless steel design and it's petite size! :)

60. Sly Enemy

The foe of happiness is not malicious people or frustrating circumstances. It is a sly enemy unseen by millions of its victims. The cunning foe is your own unseen reactions. You are unaware of your hundreds of daily mechanical reactions, and so remain under their pounding punishment. If you knew you were hurting yourself with useless guilt or envy would you allow them? Never. So make your reactions conscious, which changes them from punishing to pleasing.

Homebrew TMS Coil

used the thickest flat magnet wire from ElectroMechanicsOnline.
It's difficult to get a nice round coil because the wire is so hard to form, I used a wooden dowel with a hole drilled in the middle to create a form to wind a flat coil.

SCRs for the TMS machine

Received these C398 SCRs in the mail today. This TMS machine might actually come together :D

Hyperpolematic intertension quasimeditation

It's the third of October, I'm being smeared like the spider I crushed with that book earlier in my life, it's becoming obvious that It's being spread very thin, constituting the wars and your history that you attach your corporeal self to. And mine, my symbols are tied back to each other and the source of truth.
Your fear mongering brain washing seems to be working on various key holes, indeed Mr.Brainwasher and they are carrying out your dirty deeds, thinking they are their own deeds. I can't serve more than one master Brainwasher, so I leave you and I take my scrub brush and powered nuero soap and wash my own brain, I hope you don't need to 'get physical' if so the compass and level will invert positions and the truth will become lies and the lies truth, the washing will become dirt and filth and the filth will become cleanly once again as it was in the garden before you had your way with her.
I had a dream last night, I was talking to my friend about a book, then we had a telepathic communication and I understood the value of keys. But a similar situation happened "in real life", so what it be? Then I believe I made out with a black girl, I don't remember much else besides the fact that I felt as though it happened in Pete's house, although it was different.
Today I ran across a garage sale that had some really good books. Johnathan livingston seagull and Illusions as well as CG Jung's man and his symbols, hard cover, full color... I picked that one up for $4.
