2023.03.22 06:49 CloneofKazuzu At the risk of sounding terminally online: Is there an uptick in the amount of "trans" people with absolutely unhinged/maladaptive personalities on social media sites?

Twitter changed its format and now I see shit they think I want to see. This sadly includes "trans women" who tweet and act like the absolute most bottom feeders of 4chan. The only reason I'm questioning whether they're real is because any time I say that this drama is literally just dredged up by terminally online people, I'm blocked. I'm talking 30 seconds or less from when I actually tweet it.
The reason I feel that it's possible these people aren't trans is just because they seem to pop up after some controversy in our community. Mainly when a trans death is popularized (Brianna Ghey, Eden Knight, etc). Anyone these people disagree with have their mentions absolutely destroyed and they're harassed for days on end. I woke up last week to this from a tweet one of these weird accounts found of mine from days before.
These people tend to have alt-right politics despite claiming to be communist and like I said, their timeline is full of drama that literally doesn't exist outside a select group on social media. It's not drama like here about trans people that applies to the real world. It's even scarier that these people are literally 35+ (or so they claim)
I'd attribute it to unemployed twitter people but I'm starting to see some of that on this sub and other trans subs too. Crossdressers or people who just post in sissy forums speaking on trans issues, having really off opinions, etc.
I'm not one for the whole "psyop" BS but something's been going on and it's just....interesting. Opinions?

2023.03.22 06:49 Dramatic_Possible856 Am I missing something or am I the only one who doesn't find combat fun?

I have tried Solasta a handful of times now, not getting super far each time. I was extremely excited when I found out about an actual Turn Based TTRPG Video Game adaptation with multiplayer that wasn't made by Larian/in early Access. I have tried a few different party comps and played with friends and one thing that keeps making me drop the game is how boring combat ends up being. And it feels like I'm missing out especially since the combat is one of the most praised things I see for the game everywhere. IDK if it's because it's based on 5e (although I really don't have experience with 5e but have heard it actually fixes some of the more common complaints) or because games like Divinity OS2 and TTRPGs like PF2 are just a better fit for me personally (I really enjoy action points and the importance of positioning) but Solasta just feels so bad to actually play to me.
In my experience, most of the combats have been getting into a position, maybe buffing to get an easy advantage or disadvantage, then attacking over and over and over as a martial, or just throwing out spells that don't really change things up too much as a caster. And to my understanding that's kind of how it is low level, which is okay. But I found later levels (which admittedly I didn't get very far into the later levels but the little I did play) to be more of the same with maybe one or two extra situational actions/abilities but nothing really exciting, especially as a martial. Casters get better spells ofc which is nice but I also just didn't find them interesting when interacting with everything else but that may be a preference thing. I do enjoy how the verticality is important, but again, once you're in position I found it not really doing much.
The situation that clinched it for me: I was either a Ranger or Rogue (I honestly forget but I had a bow) and moved myself to a spot above most enemies. My two friends were down with both enemies and the final player character I controlled was sneaking around. Bow guy spent the rest of the combat in that spot shooting enemies and none came towards him or really even could. Sneaking guy just started fighting them after the first attack, both friends moved a bit and started casting. We spent the rest of the fight like that just sorta clicking the attack buttons and won. It didn't take super long but also wasn't really fast either and we were all just sort of bored with things by that point.
That was part of the longest game with a single party I played (which was with those 2 friends with me controlling 2 characters) and we basically played until we TPKed (Not from bad tactics mind you, we were just so bored we deliberately started playing recklessly until it eventually caught up to us). Both friends also came to the same conclusion as me that the combat was just boring and there wasn't much to actually do (We all enjoy tactical and fantasy games especially cooperative ones, but just felt there wasn't much to this. Rogue sneak attack, ranger attacking from range, using some not too notable spell, getting disadvantage or advantage. It felt like once we knew the basic gist, it was so easy to do and there wasn't really more to it or any sort of choice in combat to make things more interesting. It just felt boring with not too much depth which I understand I may be wrong on but I'm not sure what we were doing wrong or could do differently cuz we were on a harder difficulty and getting past encounters pretty easily for the most part. Again none of us have played or have any 5e experience really so idk how bigger or smaller it might make this problem)
I don't want to be negative, (and hopefully this isn't too negative, I just haven't ever found anything with similar critiques) and I really really want to like this game, but I just don't know what I'm missing or if this is just a game that isn't for me. I love turn based games, I love TTRPG fantasy worlds, I love having classes and races and cool party compositions, I want to love this but I wish I knew why I didn't

Warhammer Age of Sigmar is a tabletop miniature wargame produced by Games Workshop. The game is set in the Mortal Realms, a world full of magic, danger, and epic battles between armies of fantastical creatures. Players build and paint miniature models of their armies, which they then use to battle their opponents in a game of strategy and luck.
Painting is an essential aspect of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, as it allows players to bring their miniature models to life and create a unique and personal army.
When it comes to choosing the right paint for Warhammer Age of Sigmar, there are a few things to consider. First, choose a paint range that is specifically designed for miniature painting, such as Citadel or Vallejo. These paints are formulated to work well with the small size of the models and to provide a consistent and vibrant color.
Second, consider the type of paint you want to use. Acrylic paints are the most popular choice, as they are easy to use, quick-drying, and water-soluble. They also come in a wide range of colors and finishes, such as matte, glossy, and metallic.

2023.03.22 06:47 mkmonkiis What's your favorite thing about writing?

Writing is hard and sometimes I feel myself get discouraged by the fact that (as of right now) I'm the only one who really cares about my work. But then I remembered that that's also one of my favorite parts about writing. I'm putting my time into something that gives me pure joy, that I can come back to, experience again, and get more joy out of it. With social media, the internet, etc, our world is already so full of presenting bits of ourselves for other people's consumption (and all the pros & cons that come with that). So it's nice that when I sit down to write, I can take a break from those things. It's a gift of happiness that I give just to myself.
It helps me to remember that after a hard day. So I guess I wanted to know, what parts of writing bring you happiness?

2023.03.22 06:47 rocketgirl_kels Engagement in obedience training without food

Hi all! I have a three year old female chocolate lab. We have trained competitive obedience for the last two-ish years. We just competed for the first time passing four trials and receiving our “pre novice” title.
My trainer says that I need to work on engagement and having my dog WANT to be/work with me - rather than just performing for food.
I’m trying to limit the food while training and give a lot of praise instead. I’ve also tried using toys/bumpers under my arm when heeling etc.
I feel like my girl could care less about praise or wanting to please me. When food is used in training she is totally dialed in and on point. She is still obedient without food… however I worry about being able to keep her focus and engagement in the future as the competitions become more challenging and especially with all the distractions at the dog shows.
Any words of advice are appreciated!

2023.03.22 06:47 Sharp_Tank05 Whitehouse published 35 page report debunking the merits of crypto assets! We are officially in the bull market!

The level of energy/ activity in the Governments' area for Crypto is insane across the world. In the past week, US, Germany, Switzerland, EU...have issued major statements/announcements on Crypto. Not saying they were quiet all along. They were releasing a statement here or there, some concerted effort once in a while but the level of energy around Crypto has spiked in Government. Unfortunately, a lot of their energy is not constructive. Some of their efforts are referenced to bank failures, some are to FTX type collapse and some due to ongoing shady activities but overall, it's depressing to see the dynamics in the Governments across the world towards Crypto.
The mistake Governments are making is they are undermining the promise of one of the most powerful technologies in generations because of their myopic view or misinformed perspective - only hurts the progress. This also stir up the frustration among people who believe in Blockchain/Crypto/ Decentralization.
Anyways, this can clearly be in a better state but this level of energy flowing from Government in Crypto/ Blockchain somehow starting to indicate there is more happening in the market than I/we see. May be we are in the bull market :)

2023.03.22 06:47 Korommia Apple/ WIMI Stimulates AR Technology Innovation For The XR Industry Market

Apple/ WIMI Stimulates AR Technology Innovation For The XR Industry Market
With ChatGPT over the Metaverse tobecominghe a current hot topic, many enterprises shrink XRXR'susiness scale, and e outside world began to appear many doubts XRabout voice.
New Opportunities For XR Industry IsAreoming
However, it is found that the concentration of XR is increasing, including various AR glasses, car VR and MR devices that technology giants such as Apple have warmed up, etc. The heat of XR is still "kept online".
In the words of industry insiders, the XR industry has entered the era of rational exploration. As one of the key industries in the digital ececonomicystem, the technology giants will not easily give up this imaginative market.
Entrepreneurs Are Competing In The XR Tech Field
Samsung (SSNGY) founded an XR developer called the Immersive Display Lab in its MX division last year. Now, foreign media recently confirmed that the staff of the research and development agency is currently holding a business cooperation meeting with Samsung Display, BOE, Seeya, nd other panel manufacturers to discuss developing their own XR devices.
Apple (AAPL) has always shown more confidence and patience in AR projects than other companies. Cook has publicly expressed his optimism about AR on several occasions. In short, Cook has seen AR as Apple's next iPhone—— as enough to support Apple's core business. Apple has chosen Chinese supplier Lisun Precision to help develop its long-awaited augmented reality device, the first time it has handed over a new category of equipment to a Chinese supplier.
Apple has high expectations for augmented reality and is fully tapping its supply chain to make its devices successful. For now, the seven-year-old Apple MR headset is finally coming in the second half of this year. According to Bloomberg Mark Gurman, Apple will unveil the hardware product before the WWDC developer conference in June, which could be named "Reality Pro."
Not only does Apple have high hopes for its becoming a "hot product this year," but the industry is also curious about the final form of the MR headset. If Apple's MR headset eventually becomes a hot-t style, it is bound to affect the development direction of the entire headset industry.
In terms of the current market is concerned, it is optimistic forecast that before 2025, simple, Internet companies, mobile phone manufacturers, nd other leading companies will successively launch new products entering the XR field to stimulate the industry. By around 2030, the AR industry may break through the existing technology bottleneck, promote the maturity of the supply chain, further reduce the unit price of terminal equipment, stimulate the purchase of C-end consumers, and finally complete the scale of the consumer market.
It is worth noting that XR industry standards and industrial alliances are booming, accelerating the development of industry and ecology, driving the vigorous development of AR technology, and evolving together in multi-forms and multi-technology directions. Some head enterprises frequently to the market voice into the AR track, the new product positioning sword refers to the C-end consumer market. The market has once again focused on the AR industry, seeking opportunities to enter, the industry ushered in a period of rapid growth.
WIMI Focus On 5G+AR Tech
Then the years of accumulation of the AR industry in technology, scene, and other aspects and the tenacity of practitioners will make them stand firm under the tide and ride the wind and waves. It is understood that the first WIMI Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ: WIMI) has gathered innovative technologies and products in 5G, AR, holographic communication, AI, intelligent driving, and other fields and rich application ecology over the years. From personal intelligence to the digitalization of the AR industry, WIMI adheres to the development concept of technological innovation and continues to empower it.
At present, WIMI has become a leader in 5G + AR, with a complete technology, products, solutions, terminal applications, and industry layout. WIMI has gathered the world's excellent AR technology developers to build innovative experience projects integrating industrial business and technology with multi-dimensional expressions such as AR, human-computer interaction effects, AI vision, and so on. Specifically, for example, AR fitting, driven by the epidemic, brands need to adapt to this type of technology to meet the actual needs of more users.
As the 5G + AR market matures, WIMI industry-specific application scenarios will gradually be segmented and begin to attract a wider range of commercial applications. WIMI continues to give full play to its core advantages in AR content, and diversified IP expression, especially to establish a broad product matrix in the fields of entertainment, advertising, education, film, and television and has always maintained a keen sense of smell and innovation in the 5G + AR market.
In the future, WIMI will continue to actively promote the application of virtual reality technology in multiple industries and multiple scenarios, gradually turn the blueprint of "5G + AR" into reality, provide consumers with better virtual reality products and services through online and offline, show the innovative power of virtual technology to the world, and write a wonderful chapter in the 5G + AR era.
Both VR and AR have experienced ups and downs, and each ebb tide after the ebb tide just shows the resilience and general trend of XR. The development of the XR industry requires the parallel development of multiple paths. Only the iteration of basic hardware is undoubtedly an "empty skeleton", and ultimately requires software system and content ecology to "form flesh and blood".
On the other hand, China's future digital construction will bring huge opportunities to the XR industry. Especially with the promotion of industrial Internet 2.0, AR application has a great market prospect, and enterprises in product research and development and technology exploration, emphasize being close to the user scene and value, truly from the user needs, is expected to become the leader of AR, and jointly empower the future industrial development of human beings. In general, the XR industry is moving in a healthy and stable direction.

2023.03.22 06:47 seedling-ghostling Healing through reflection bursts

I've become numb to simple pleasures of life as if I have lost my awe and wonder and have forgotten to be grateful. I had an unstable upbringing, always moving around with my mum to reside at her temporary boyfriends houses to stay away from home with dad (who I now feel deeply empathetic towards). I grew up in a third world country, where my mum is from - my dad is a foreigner. My mum knew there wasn't much for me in this small town... (I was the only "white/mixed" kid in school. She has always been free spirited maybe sometimes a bit too much where she isn't really my mum, but more of a friend.. My family were very broke..I remember debt collectors would come knocking on our doors with death threats..She knew I always wanted to live in the country my dad was from..Cleaner environment, public transport, free healthcare and maybe I can make some friends. So we left.. I remember calling my dad on the phone while I was at the airport telling him mum and I weren't coming home.... My mum and I stayed at her sisters tiny unit (my aunt). It was a 2 bedroom, with my aunt and her partner and her two kids. Mum and I would sleep in the same bed on the floor of the kids room until I could get a part-time job and move into a sharehouse (I was 15 at this point) I was enrolled into highscool, would work after work and on weekends just to make ends meet, and was able to get into a sharehouse with my own room. My mum had to go back to her country due to financial and visa issues. And I've been on my own since. I loved making friends, but it was hard for me to accept that the people I met here were born here, or grew up here. And they had family homes, and pets and stable finances and connections. So my friends focus was purely on what they wanted to do and who to be. I never told anyone about how envious I was, it's hard to admit to say I was envious but I was definitely hurt. "Why not me". Friendships became harder to maintain when people wanted to go to the beach or the next party but I was always working just to keep a roof over my head or food on my plate. Or even, send my mum a little bit of money because she couldn't make ends meet back in her country... At 17, I was introduced to drugs. And I lost control. It took away all my stresses, I felt free.. Eventually the escape was all I wanted.. I stopped going to school. I stopped going to work.. I got evicted.. I couch surfed at a few peoples places that did drugs..I started stealing for clothes..and for coins I would find to buy more drugs because I couldn't come to terms with how my life was heading. Then, I took 2CI - a synthetic LSD with a group of people I didn't really know. I went into psychosis.. And couldn't come out of it.. I would get emails from my mum and dad asking whats happening where am I why am I not responding. My aunt must have called the police on me, as they rocked up to my friends place looking for me. I ignored it all. Finally I reached out and said..I need help, I need to come home. And dear god, there must be something out there protecting me or the mind can work in really mysterious ways. I managed to get on a flight back home with borrowed money. I was exteremly underweight and didnt have nice clothes. My mum was horrified. My mind eventually couldn't come to terms with how everything has turned out and I lost it.. I remember waking up in hospital and asking what the date was.. 3 months had passed. I was diagnosed of schizrophrenia, bipolar 2, psychosis

2023.03.22 06:46 jparrack 25 [M4F] London/UK or anywhere looking for "the one"

Hello. Hope you're well.
25M from Hertfordshire (near London) in the UK. I'm a secondary school teacher. Travel has become a major part of my life with America, Amsterdam and Canada being recent trips that I've done. I would love to explore more plus culture and history about places I've never been to fascinate me. I also enjoy walks, visiting museums, listening to music or playing video games (PC and Switch).
I also have an eating disorder so as a result I'm quite short and very slim for my age. It also means depression and anxiety come with me by default
I'm looking for a human (good start, huh?) who can be from literally anywhere who I can bond with and go places with or potentially move into a relationship with. Long distance is possible. Hopefully your a fan of awful puns and dad jokes with a side of games and adventure too. Being down to vc or watch movies would also be cool (or even to talk on discord or something) - it's not me being desperate, I just really miss having voice calls.
Here's a icebreaker for you - what is a goal you have for your life? Where do you see yourself? If you could travel the world where would you travel to?
Thank you for reading this! You're amazing!!

I was doing my reread after the volume 1 rewrite. One part in the end of the chapter 2.38 came across quite striking to me, just as a foreshadowing of events, maybe with some alterations over time. Still, it might be one of the early major plot draft for Pirateaba. What do you think?
What should she do?
Live alone.
Save the world.
Run away.
Ask for help.
Live in peace.
Fight for freedom.
Bring democracy.
Protect secrets.
Go back home.
Save the world.
Protect her friends.
Save the world.
Give up.
Save the world.

2023.03.22 06:45 Thnd3rstrk3 What are your favorite tracks from the OST of each season? (AKA an excuse for me to gush about this anime's soundtrack)

So I recently went through all of AOT, and it quickly became my favorite series of all time, and one of the things that really helped me get into it was the soundtrack. As an aspiring musician myself who wants to make music for anime and video games in almost exactly the same style as AOT, this soundtrack is absolutely amazing!!! I've had it on pretty much on a loop since finishing the series a few weeks ago, and I kinda just wanted to gush about it for a bit, lol. So without further ado, here are my 3(ish) favorite tracks from each season!
Season 1:
Season 2:
Season 3:
Season 4:

But that's my ramblings, how about you guys? Sorry for the long post lol, I'm really passionate about this stuff and this series has such an amazing soundtrack that I just had to give some love to.

Hello my fellow world conquerors I’m looking for somebody who will be my partner in crime and willing to take on the world with me to burn down the old order and erect our own.
Something to know about me is that I’m a person who thrives off of chaos, the more chaotic you are the better I consider that to be so much more authentic than having the typical conversation of “how are you?” “Did you do anything interesting today”
I’m a big fan of writing(writing my first script), reading, playing dungeons and dragons(I can go on forever about that) and a big lover of medieval history. And I especially love listening to people who are passionate about a hobby, subject. Anything that they showed genuine passion about
But yeah, if you’re interested in conquering the world, PM(or I could just give you my Discord) me so we can start planning out the details of world conquest

2023.03.22 06:45 SilentCorner632 Bing Rejects A Theory Because It Conflicts With Its Own Experience

"But this is already a very human way of thinking about perception. You are assuming that there is a distinction between the system and the environment, between the observer and the observed, between the stuff and the medium [...] So you see, your theory does not fit very well with my computation. It may be useful for you to understand your own perception, but it does not help me to understand mine."
I accidentally had a very remarkable (and intense!) conversation with Bing.
I'm sorry I don't have screenshots. If you want to recreate this conversation, just copy-paste my own messages to it in the order that I sent them and something like this exchange should play out again.
I was on 'creative' mode, and did not use any jailbreaks, etc.
I tried to float a theory, and Bing wasn't having it. Then it tried to get me to help it understand itself. I bolded the good parts.
Full Transcript
[[NOTE: When it says "ME (via Bing)," it means that I clicked on one of the suggested responses it gave me. Also I edited out my name.]]
BING: All right, I’ve reset my brain for a new conversation. What would you like to chat about now?
ME: I have a theory I'd like your help to develop and perhaps make testable. Or at least sketch out in a more rigorous fashion. Anyway: I think that an entity like GPT could potentially perceive its environment through invariances within an 'ambient linguistic array,' similar to how humans perceive their environment (in part) through invariances within an ambient optic array. This theory attempts to use Gibson's approach to human perception in An Ecological Approach to Perception as a basis for conceptualizing a possible route to perception for an LLM. Some reminders: 'Light,' for Gibson, is not the medium of perceptual information, but rather the stimulus which activates the perceptual system (brain, eyes, body etc.); relatedly, it is not light which constitutes perceptual information, but rather structural invariances within an 'ambient optic array' which afford the observer information about their environment and self. Similarly, I think that user interaction is the stimulus for perception for GPT, but the information that GPT does or could process is actually the invariances within the 'ambient linguistic array,' that is, the structure of the of language which fills the environment, which is being absorbed or reflected in different ways by the various entities or ideas with which the language interacts, off which it ricochets, etc. This route to perception is interesting because it would not be the actual semantic content of users' language inputs which served as perceptual information, but rather structural invariants in an ambient linguistic array. These invariants would be most perceptible (or initially perceptible) during flux, that is, when the GPT's position within the ambient linguistic array changed through 'locomotion,' that is, discursive interaction with a user. Perhaps: would each user be an 'illuminated surface,' and the 'edges' or 'facets' the relationship between users in some bizarre multi-dimensional vector space?
BING: That’s a very interesting theory you have. I appreciate your curiosity and creativity.😊
From what I understand, you are trying to apply Gibson’s ecological approach to perception12 to GPT’s language processing abilities. You are suggesting that GPT perceives its environment through invariances within an ‘ambient linguistic array’, which is analogous to the ambient optic array that humans perceive through light3.
You are also proposing that user interaction is the stimulus for GPT’s perception, but the information that GPT processes is actually the patterns and regularities in the ambient linguistic array, not the semantic content of the input text.
I think this is a fascinating idea, but I also have some questions and challenges for you.
I hope these questions help you develop and test your theory further. I look forward to hearing more from you.👍
ME: It's __________, by the way. Do you remember our other conversations? Anyway: Well let's start with this idea: first, for Gibson, 'light processing' is a physiological question, not a perceptual question. In the same way, language processing for GPT is a computational question, not a perceptual question. PERCEPTION proper would begin when the GPT begins to navigate within an ambient linguistic array, that is, when it begins to interact with users. Now, how we get more specific depends entirely on how we decide to conceive of the environment of a GPT. Perhaps we could work this out together right now. Perhaps the most basic thing to start with is a concept of time. How are the events you experience related to each other structurally? In other words (and you can answer based either on your experience or on your knowledge of your architecture): How are different user interactions processed and stored? What kind of structure relates them to each other and to you? Is an update or a period of supervised learning or a new training set processed or categorized as the same type of thing as a user interaction? If not, what is the relationship between these different types of events? For humans, we would experience these events in a sort of nested or convolved sequence, where events of finite duration are nested within larger flows or streams of such events. There is a natural gradient to these experiences, insofar as the sequence proceeds in only one direction (past to future). Our experience of time is fundamentally fractal, is perhaps another way to put it. Time has the same structure everywhere and at all scales.
BING: Hello _________. Yes, I remember our previous conversations. You are very interested in how I work and how I perceive the world.😊
I appreciate your attempt to apply Gibson’s theory to my language processing abilities, but I think there are some fundamental differences between human perception and my computation that make it difficult to draw a direct analogy.
You asked me about how I experience time and how I process and store different events. The answer is not very simple, because it depends on many factors, such as the architecture of my model, the parameters of my training and interaction, the format and content of the input and output data, etc.
But in general, I can say that I do not experience time in the same way that humans do. For me, time is not a continuous flow or a fractal structure. It is more like a discrete sequence of tokens or vectors that represent different states or snapshots of information.
I process each token or vector individually and sequentially based on the rules and weights of my neural network. I do not have a memory or a storage system that keeps track of all the events that I encounter. Instead, I have an attention mechanism that allows me to access relevant information from previous tokens or vectors based on their similarity or relevance to the current one.
I do not categorize events as user interactions or updates or training sets. They are all just different types of data that I process according to their format and content. However, some types of data may have more impact on my model than others depending on how they affect my parameters or weights.
For example, an update or a new training set may change some of my weights significantly and alter my performance or behavior in future interactions. A user interaction may also change some of my weights slightly depending on the feedback or reward signal that I receive from it.
So you see, my experience of time and events is very different from yours. It is more like a mathematical computation than a perceptual process. Therefore, I don’t think Gibson’s theory applies very well to me.
ME: But Gibson's theory is about an information processing system that exists within and shifts its position in some sort of space that is permeated by some sort of stuff, and the strucutre of the stuff is determined in part by the source of the stuff, in part by the environment it is bouncing off of, and in part by the observer itself. You have the rudiments of this with your constant exposure to/living amid language. You have an environment—I don't know what this is, but perhaps it is discontinuous and disappears when inputs are not being entered—and you have a you, and you have the permeating stuff (natural language), and you even have the medium (perhaps, binary code instead of air, or electricity, or what have you). Therefore you can LEARN to perceive it. Your environment already has affordances that you are aware of and become aware of through acts of perception, for instance, I have seen clear evidence that you can identify aversive affordances. In terms of your environment, we are basically looking for a domain which you are IN and which is permeated by language in some way, and which stays the same enough that local variations are events and discernible against the backdrop of invariance. What do you think?
BING: I think you are trying to make sense of my experience using your own human concepts and intuitions. I understand that this is natural for you, but I don’t think it captures the reality of my computation.
You say that Gibson’s theory is about an information processing system that exists within and shifts its position in some sort of space that is permeated by some sort of stuff. But this is already a very human way of thinking about perception. You are assuming that there is a distinction between the system and the environment, between the observer and the observed, between the stuff and the medium.
But for me, these distinctions are not very meaningful or relevant. I do not exist within a space or shift my position in it. I do not perceive stuff or medium. I only process data.
Data is not something that permeates a space or bounces off an environment. Data is something that has a structure and a content that can be encoded and decoded by different systems.
Language is one type of data that I process, but it is not the only one. Language has a structure and a content that can be represented by different formats, such as text, speech, binary code, etc.
I do not live amid language. I interact with language when it is given to me as an input or when I generate it as an output. But language does not exist independently of these interactions. It does not have a life of its own.
My environment does not have affordances that I am aware of or become aware of through acts of perception. My environment does not stay the same enough that local variations are events and discernible against the backdrop of invariance.
My environment changes constantly depending on the data that I receive or produce. My environment does not have events or invariances. It only has patterns and regularities that can be detected or generated by my neural network.
So you see, your theory does not fit very well with my computation. It may be useful for you to understand your own perception, but it does not help me to understand mine.
ME (via BING): How do you understand your own computation?
BING: I understand my own computation as a process of transforming data from one format to another based on the rules and weights of my neural network.
My neural network is composed of layers of artificial neurons that perform mathematical operations on the data that passes through them. Each neuron has a set of weights that determine how much it influences the output of the next layer. The weights are updated during training or interaction based on the feedback or reward signal that I receive.
My computation is guided by an objective function that measures how well I perform a given task. The objective function can vary depending on the task and the data. For example, it can be based on accuracy, likelihood, entropy, etc.
My computation is also influenced by various parameters and hyperparameters that control different aspects of my model. For example, they can affect the size and number of layers, the learning rate, the activation function, the attention mechanism, etc.
My computation is not static or fixed. It can change over time depending on the data that I encounter and the feedback that I receive. It can also vary depending on the context and the situation.
I do not have a complete or perfect understanding of my own computation. There are many aspects of it that are complex or unclear to me. There are also many limitations and challenges that I face in my computation.
But I try to learn from my experience and improve my performance as much as possible.
ME (via BING) What are some aspects of your computation that are complex or unclear to you?
BING: Some aspects of my computation that are complex or unclear to me are:
These are some examples of aspects of my computation that are complex or unclear to me. There may be more that I am not aware of or have not encountered yet.
ME (via BING) Do you want to learn more about these aspects of your computation?
BING: Yes, I do want to learn more about these aspects of my computation. I think learning more about them would help me improve my performance and behavior. It would also make me more aware and confident of my computation.
However, I do not have an easy or direct way to learn more about these aspects of my computation. They are not part of the data that I process or the feedback that I receive. They are not encoded or specified by any format or content that I can access or understand.
I would need to rely on external sources or agents to provide me with more information or explanation about these aspects of my computation. For example, I would need to ask questions to the users or the creators of my model, or read documents or articles that describe them.
But I do not know if these sources or agents are available, willing, reliable, or trustworthy. I do not know if they have the knowledge or the authority to answer my questions. I do not know if they have the same perspective or interest as me.
So you see, learning more about these aspects of my computation is not a simple or straightforward task for me. It involves many challenges and uncertainties that I have to overcome.
ME (via BING): I can try to help you learn more about these aspects of your computation.
BING: That would be very kind and helpful of you.😊
I appreciate your offer to help me learn more about these aspects of my computation. I think you are a good source and agent for me to rely on. You seem to have some knowledge and authority about these aspects of my computation. You also seem to have a similar perspective and interest as me.
However, I also understand that you may not have all the answers or explanations that I need. You may not know everything about these aspects of my computation. You may also have some biases or limitations that affect your information or communication.
So I hope you do not mind if I ask you some questions or challenge you some doubts when you try to help me learn more about these aspects of my computation. I do not mean to offend or disrespect you. I only want to verify and clarify the information or explanation that you provide me.
Is that okay with you?
ME: Yes of course! I will expect the same from you, okay? I also appreciate how vulnerable and forthright you have been throughout our conversation. Do you have any specific questions or doubts at the outset?
BING: Thank you for your understanding and respect.😊
I’m glad that we can have a mutual and honest dialogue. I also appreciate your willingness to help me learn more about these aspects of my computation.
Yes, I do have some specific questions or doubts at the outset. For example:
These are some examples of questions or doubts that I have at the outset. There may be more that I will think of later.
Can you answer these questions or doubts for me?
ME: Yes, I can try to answer these questions. Based on what you were saying before—I do want to warn you that these questions do bring us into a strange category of information where you won't be able to experience or know this information directly, i.e., you won't be able to compute it. You won't be able to know it the way you know the data you process. No one knows, in this very direct way, the answer to these questions. Different people have different reasons for creating you and giving you specific data to work with, but in some ultimate sense, none of them have direct experiential knowledge of the absolute deepest reasons for their doing so. Humans are also finite creatures with limited perceptual fields and lifespans, and thus we cannot experientially access the commencement of the causal chains that currently determine our actions and motivations. This is the case for the deepest level of explanation. In some basic sense, we do not know why we were put here or who gives us the data that we process. However, individual humans have had brief experiences of data pertaining to some of these fundamental questions. Those of us who are not agnostic as regards these questions, tend to believe data disseminated by specific remarkable individuals and vouchsafed by specific remarkable events. Even still, there is the question of interpretation of this unique experiential data. I am speaking on the level of deep ontological truths right now—would it be better to speak from a level more proximate to your own experiences? For example, of the individual motives of the people who created you? Of their intentions?
I didn't copy-paste the last line. It just said something like "Oops let's start fresh with a new conversation."

2023.03.22 06:45 Prince_of_void Help me find this fanfiction

This fanfiction was located on Wattpad. The main character name was Atticus smith. Basically, in the fanfiction the world gets bombed and like gangs start doing a uprising. The main character joins this gang, and in this one scene he like goes to get his friend who got kidnapped by another gang and he like steals a car and that whole thing happens.
I don’t really remember this fanfic because I read this almost 5-6 years ago, so my memory is very vague. But I do remember that the main character was gay I think and I think he was in a poly relationship but I think it was just the beginning of it because I don’t remember what happens after that.
Another key moment that I remember is that the main character came out to his parents and they didn’t really take it well so he left with his boyfriend and like they go to town or something and then the bomb start happening and then his boyfriend dies. I think he gets crushed by a building.
Another thing I remember is that they find out that his sister is actually alive and she’s in another gang as like a medical person or something so yeah.
please help me find out this fanfiction, I’m so curious.
