To Whom it May Concern:

We figure that, statistically, you might have downloaded some music off of an internet. Therefore, we are weighing our legal team (which is big and expensive) against yours (which is likely cheap, if not non-existant) in order to attempt to scam some money off of you, since our CEO wants to spend 'spring break' in the Bahamas this year.

on another note, it's singularly hilarious to watch the Bush to try to talk about astronomy, or other sciences. he's a retard. you heard me NSA. he's a retard. and remember (if you're listening), you tried to hire me as an intern. and give a shout out to the FBI for me. 'i don't know computism'

i am the oldest in the longest line of the already dead, as my fathers were before me.


i was walking back to my new apt from the piccadily between neil and randolf, and as i approached the intersection of neil and clark, i saw a shadow of a raised arm rise above me. 'Strange', i thought, as i myself hadn't raised my arm. so i turned and, thanks to a little training, instinctively raised my arm in a blocking position - just in time to prevent a rather large metal belt buckle from swinging into the base of my skull. 'You dumb asshole', i muttered. 'Don't fuck with me.' I looked at the guy who was trying to mug me. He looked a bit taken aback, a little frightened. I was uncertain what to do with him. call the cops? perhaps i should have, but i felt a bit sorry for him, standing there like a deer caught in headlights. I told him to start running. He still stood there frozen. 'Start running NOW!' He turned and bolted. A few strides in, his brand new straw hat flew off his head. He turned as if to pick it up, so i took a few steps towards him. He sprinted for another half a block, then stopped and turned around. I informed him to keep running.

I picked up the hat. Strangely, i wanted to give it back to him, to talk with him, see why he did what he did. Maybe i could convince him there were better ways of going about things? I looked at the hat, then tossed it into the nearest waste basket.

i wish i would have given it back to him.

music is far too often a responce to the symptom, and not to the the problem. sadly, only very few avant garde type folks have dealt with the problem. and i think they did so on accident. I cannot lay much blame, however, as i still cannot find the correct way of laying blame on the problem.

putnam's argument against the epistemic sceptic in 'truth, reason and history', if valid, obviously discludes any way of knowing anything of an ontology outside of our own. unless he accepts his modal motivation for the iterative conception of set theory as being somehow platonic (thus throwing it via his epistemic argument out of our ontology a la benaceraf), why cannot a possible world have an axiomatic conception in which 2+2=5 is provable? in other words, how could it be [necessary](P.A. -> FERMAT) given his argument in 'truth...'? empirical necessity? if so, we're back at a finitist conception, and [necessity](P.A. -> FERMAT) would have to be stipulated (based on finitely many observations). convention, yes! arbitrary, no!


the death-blow to functionalism was when it's founder decried "meaning just aint in the head!" He seems to think that meaning is somehow based, at least partly, on the outside world. H20 vs. XYZ. If i say 'water' and some ideal possible-world version of me also says 'water' - all things beeing the same between us except that in his reality the stuff that is in lakes and rivers and 60% of whiskey is actually XYZ, not H20 - we must mean something different. According to him, it seems, we mean something different because H2O is different than XYZ. I find it hard to believe, however, assuming there is something analyzable that is 'meaning', that some empiricle object just by it's nature changes our meaning. Instead, it seems to me that it would be the case that possible-world-me would be meaning the same thing by the word 'water' despite what is being used. Use requires two components: the user and the used. The user in each case would be the same. But since the user-act is the same, perhaps functionalism could survive. The statement 'meaning is just the use of language' would have to be modified for this example to be 'meaning is just the user-use of the language'. this seems to demystify meaning, and allow for functionalism.

ah, but what if i say 'i mean just that thing there'? the thing you would be refering to would be your user-use-object of what a realist would take to be the actual object, not the actual thing. we are not directly connected to what we speak about.


would things be the same if circumstances were different? we can't know. maybe. maybe not. however, the fact of the matter is that we are in exactly the circumstances that we are in. thus it stands, and questions... remain.

"the theory of common descent through natural selection has been called the unifying concept for all of biology and one of the greatest scientific ideas of all time, but that was no excuse to be fanatics about it. Where were the answering articles presenting the powerful case for scientific creationism? Why were we so unwilling to suggest that dinosaurs lived 6,000 years ago or that a cataclysmic flood carved the Grand Canyon? Blame the scientists. They dazzled us with their fancy fossils, their radiocarbon dating and their tens of thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles... we had no business being persuaded by mountains of evidence."

from when i escewed pragmatism:

overlaying all empirical data on a priori cognition. mapping all i see to the fundamental structures known to be true. all that is not the case is false, but a negative definition is not good enough. the concept 'truth' cannot be a priori, but there must be something that is the case which is presupposed by everything else. it would not necessarily be something one has yet ennumerated, but it must be possible to ennumerate it by walking down our line of knowledge

wow, that is senseless



i claim that all possible truth is the case.

it is left as an excercise to the reader to verify this.

A: so, you obviously know something that i'm interested in...
B: yes, i think that that may be the case.
A: on that topic, do you plan on informing me as to what it is you know?
B: that is a possibility, though i'm uncertain as to the eventual outcome. the current plan does in fact involve the distrobution of this information, but the convention is still in session, attempting to finalize what we're going to do.
A: is there anyway i might trick you into telling me now, or perhaps in the future?
B: well, i would assume that, if caught off guard, in some distracting train of thought, or perhaps led into it with a particularly keen and mischevious series of questions, i might accidentally let out tidbits which would likely lead you to the knowledge you're asking about.
A: is there any chance of that happening now?
B: no.
A: well then, i suppose i'll end this conversation with this non-commital sentance, in order to not alienate myself to any future possibility of learning what it is you know.
B:I'll counter with this bland, non-offensive joke to convince you that there are no hard feelings.

i listened to the old messages you left me.


2004.8.9

child rotator.


2004.6.9

i have added, subtracted, debated, and respirated. despite all that, i'm more glad that i have binoculars.


2004.4.9

some particular instance of what may be a general idea has seemed much more real to me as of late than the more general thesis. i think something may mean something to me...


2004.29.8

i have never found what the difference is between sleeping quietly, and saying what you want to say.


2004.25.8

insomnia before the first day of class never fails to (repeatedly) piss me off.


2004.24.8

in the process of prepairing for school, i have forgotten something of utmost importance: i have not made brownies with which to bribe the professors.


2004.21.8

you didn't wake up, so i eventually fell asleep

2004.16.8

school is about to start

today began the resurgence of students to the campus area, and, as expected, i feel the average intelligence, driving ability, alcohol capacity, amicability, and air quality of the town quickly declining. this could be attributed to my overall disdain for much i've come into contact with today, due to my strained attempts to force myself into a more class-oriented sleep schedule, but i'm reluctant to say that this is the case.


2004.14.8

i've noted two things tonight:
(1)my friends don't save me last call anymore;
(2)i don't don't know how girls think


2004.10.8

i'm hungry. i need food.


2004.5.8

just now, on my way home, i observed a bumper sticker that said

'welcome to america
now speak english
'

bigotry issues aside, does anyone else see a problem with this? it may be different if we were in england, but as it stands, shouldn't it say 'welcome to america, now speak navajo', or something along those lines?


2004.2.8

given what i am sure of, i am confident i will never be sure of anything (else)


2004.29.7

it's my friend carmen, who used to live next door to me and steve. hello, carmen!


2004.27.7

so i scanned my logs, and there's an interesting ip that keeps showing up, one on the onolab.com domain. it looks like someone with a cable modem in spain. i'm more than happy to be getting the overseas hits/ thanks for visiting my site. i'm just curious, since i know most people who regular my site, as to who you may be. if you don't want to say, that's fine. but otherwise, please let me know


2004.25.7

updating images. new splash page, links page images


2004.24.7

the sunrise is disturbing


2004.22.7

i met you on a power line above atlanta. we had seen each other from our windows. i desperately wanted to meet you, so i took down the meathooks which held my curtains, and, crawling out through my livingroon window, used them to steady myself between the wires. the way was long - about 300 yards - and below me swarmed the Convention. those vile people.

you looked for me from your window as you had done each day, but instead of smiling from the usual post, you caught me blinking sweat from my eyes as i slowly made my way along the lines. you opened your window, began to step out. 'be careful', i thought. 'ok' you thought in reply.

your hands having changed to grappling hooks, you glide along the wire more quickly than i, but we still meet closer to your apartment. we stop and stare only five feet away from each other (scared of electric shocks). we want to kiss. so we lean in...

the spark was enough to break the wire, dropping us miles down, quickly, quicker towards the Convention. we hold on to each other to slow the fall. '...don't want to be around them' we think.

we crash through the convention, and luckily, through a grate in the floor. i find we're in the sewer. what luck! i turn to look for you, and give a start. your heads fallen off! from my vantage point, i can see up your neck, see the blood, the muscles, the spine, the plastic frame. i pick your head up and you smile your bloody smile. too bad about the face, but oh well doesn't matter. i align your head and neck back to your shoulders, and press down untill i hear the pop of the plastic joint going back into place. rotating the metal scarf from behind your head causes it to pass over your face then, as expected, your face is back to normal.

we smile, then we kiss


2004.14.7

i'm continually tormented by the sight of tiny symbols which, when viewed, cause me to hear words in my head


2004.13.7

i wonder if the arms of our milkyway galaxy are fallen alseep. you know, from not having hardly moved them in so long...


2004.13.7

i've never heard what i wanted to hear

the person was sentanced today. 3.5 at joliet, plus he has to pay restitution. i am happy with this sentance. fucker. time to get yours. i feel justice has been served. oh, and i found out he was drunk, coked up, and high when it happened.


2004.11.6

to feeling debonair; to feeling brave; to seeing the meaning behind people's eyes; to conversing with dieties; to disproving god; to seeing the humor in everything; to fading; i drink. cheers.


2004.11.6

to slowing life's onslaught; to modifying time; to forgetting; to finding hard sleep; to sleeping on porches; to sleeping on floors; to letting go that one last thread; to drowning sorrows; i drink. cheers.


2004.11.6

so the general states: (so it's a general statement)
so now something makes sense. and it may have something to do with MIDI. but it doesn't. for me, it has something to do with the colour red. and realizing the old chicago fire didn't involve me. who leaves a lantern where a cow can kick it over? and it's wonderful.


2004.7.6

ok, so i know all of you are going to be watching the venus transit tonight. I likely wont get to see it live. so if you're going to be watching it, break out your digital camera, and take me some pictures. sure, i'll be watching it online already, but take them for me anyway.


2004.4.6

there's a red-headed math-girl about 10 feet behind me... good night.

having trouble defining clients and managing system images? just run with it. feel the power underneath your fingertips and play around. you'll get the hang of it.

then give up and make out

2004.17.5

imagine i'm getting food. imagine i have my laptop with me, so i go somewhere that has wireless access. Assume i go somewhere i've never been before, but i go because i hear they have wireless. suppose it takes them a while to bring me a drink. now think what if it only took me 20 seconds to get into their router...


2004.17.5

let's pretend for a moment... let's pretend that everything is working as planned. what is the next step? let's stop pretending and get some food....

I am pleased to announce your acceptance to the M.Phil graduate program at Trinity College, University of Cambridge...


2004.10.5

unless our qualities, character, etc. have a cause, they cannot be effected. the only chance one has to change anything about themself is if who they are is governed by the laws of cause and effect (in order to be effected, there must be some cause, or effector). If this is the case, however, you no longer have freedom, all becomes deterministic.
If you take the other case, where who one is is not capable of being effected, then one still doesn't have freedom, because how free are you if you can't make any changes to yourself?


2004.10.5

in mathematics, there are no surprises


2004.9.5

today is a day for sleeplessness, for memory, for thought, for focus. today is a day to brush everything aside, yet synthesise it into one whole, to be grasped, maniulated. today is a day for the manifold.

today is a day to do too damned much homework
