Happy New Year 2020 too

So we all know what a fight 2020 was.

Last year we were informed that 2020 won.

I just hope this year is not 2020 too.

Re: The Ghost in the Machine

... but I had to include a way to shut the learning/changing down so that games programmers could force NPCs to do certain things without fear that the NPC would have 'learned' that the player was, say, a deceitful jerk and refuse to give out vital info.)

Re: Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 UPDATED

Addendum. If you are committed to watching them, there is apparently a "right order", something akin to Machete order for Star Wars. Here is the link to the full explanation . Order 1 Neon Genesis Evangelion episodes 1-26 (inc. episodes 21-24 director’s cuts) (1995-1996) End of Evangelion ...

Re: Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 UPDATED

OK, I'm watching 3+1 now. I mean right now. I have it paused because Joy to the World just kicked in and I had to look it up.

There are two things from my experience that I think are relevant here. Back in my college days some of us from the Computer Science and Engineering classes create a Thursday night group that we called Mad Hackers Night. this was before the media stole the word hacker and redefined it as thief.

An outsiders take on self - in GitS

This guy has an interesting take on the philosophy of identity from GitS (you can tell how far outside of the GitS fandom he is the first time he says Motoko) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BGjub9ZNHg He follows the idea of "I think therefore I am" back to the original debate on that idea.

Re: Harmony

Did anyone else watch Harmony? There is a word they used for the state of lacking a consciousness and I'm searching for that word. Not remembering it (and google keeps telling me about surgical anesthetic).
