Re: Site Update - 19 Jan 2021

I had to use the password change function in order to log back in. Neither of stores passwords in my browser (Chrome/Firefox) would let me in. Reset worked fine and very quickly. I'm in.

Re: Happy New Year 2021 edition!

I heard a comment about how to pronounce this year and after ruminating on it and coming up with one of my own I offer this. With all that went on 2020 it sure felt like a fight. When the new year showed up all it did was tell us that "twenty twenty won". I'm not looking forward to the nex...

I got my cousin to watch the live action Ghost in the Shell. It took a lot of convincing because I had told her about the series before I learned that she hate a all animated shows. She liked it. (well duh, it's not a bad story) And then she thought she might like to see the original. So with great ...

I need to update my list. I've come across some others (both good and bad) and one that is a series of YouTube videos that seems to be a modern-ish take on meso american spirits dealing with old west people. EDIT: OK, I added the new ones and reformatted the list a little. There are a couple of refe...

Yaaay, I'm back again.

OK, I think I know how this works now. It's the size of the commit to the database and I'm locked out by the hosting service. So I guess I have to stop posting articles (or break them into smaller pieces)

I'm back on the naughty list. I guess I'm posting too much text at one time.

Please let me back in.

Dang it, I tried posting the rest of the article and it was too large and I got a message from the firewall that my IP address has been blocked. Again. Sigh.

I know from experience that it will time out, but until then I'll have to access from my cell phone instead of my home computer

I've been boning up on Western philosophers recently and I'll have to throw this in my pot and stir it around too. I came across an article that sort of agrees (I think it does anyway - they both mention Descartes) https://aeon.co/ideas/the-body-is-the-missing-link-for-truly-intelligent-machines The...

okay now i got it with the music :) i cant believe that there is no meaning in the "GIG" I think we were going after this interpretation - it does have a meaning: " Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG" => " Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd Job" They spelled it with ALL CA...

I just re-read this thread and I still love it for the questions it raises. The philosophical direction that GitS takes and shakes around about what it means to be human or have a soul starts from an Eastern way of thinking. I've inherited my Western way of thinking from the Greeks via the Romans. I...

It's true. My life hasn't changed much at all because of this.

I know someone who was distantly related to a person on that cruise ship that wasn't allowed to dock, but that is my only connection to what's out there. The rest of it is like reading news from another planet.
