Happy June everyone! Can you believe we are almost half way through the year?

Well, ok so as I write this it's still May but it's the last day so close enough.

Summer is here and we have made it half way through the year. You excited yet?

Spring is around and with the first warm day, I am just seeing spiders and their webs reappearing all around the place.

Ants too.

And with a new Travis McEnery video, let's discuss what crawlies have appeared in your neighbourhood this spring.

A good chunk of American culture is rooted primarily in fear and paranoia, I don't think it's as culturally universal as that. A consequence of the combination of consumerist culture promotes materialism (and the more stuff one has the more fear of loss one is likely to be burdened with), plus the legacy of an economic dependence on a military industrial complex that needed to promote xenophobia to justify it's continued existence after world war 2, plus the fear of nuclear war. This kinda exacerbates the preexisting negativity bias human minds seem evolved to have, giving us a primal need to keep track of all potential existential threats at all time.

While I consider it to be abnormally worse in some countries compared to others, in a shades of grey sense, fundamentally human beings are apex predators and their entire biology is designed as such.

Much as it's scientifically a tough sell to talk about vegetarian lions falling asleep cuddled next to gazelle, say, so too is it rather silly to look at human beings as the top species on Earth due to metaphorically standing atop a gigantic pile of skulls and expect people to behave like small, docile herbivores. The human brain is designed around predation. Hunting. Domination. Occupation. This is what DNA encodes. These are inherent natural instincts. Millions of years of evolution has finely tuned the human brain to be the most efficient at survival. At being the best hunter possible. And hanging on despite challenges, including outthinking other predators that we've always lived by such as bears and wolves.

The fact is that advanced AI as an inherent concept has been primarily concieved just like nuclear weapons as something largely developed in modern times as a way to wage war, and also just like with nuclear weapons any peaceable developments related to AI are a mere sideshow to the core reasons for its existence. Byproducts. Beneficial, yes, but not the central purpose.

I like how despite being part of a race that had their emotions lobotomize, he speaks with a tone of confusion around them. I can't tell if it's out of vague lament over humans he regards primitive, or that subconsciously he doesn't know what's going on with his physical being trapped in circuitry and metal that he talks through.

Never cares much for the Cybus-era Cybermen that had to had their own death-cry like the Daleks.

 No.1168976

>>1168888

Well it's mostly a sense of disappointment and confusion. After all one of the main traits of Cybermen is that they do view themselves as being better and superior than humans but not in a "I hate you and want to kill you" way like you get with Daleks but more of a "I feel sorry for you why won't you understand that I'm trying to help you and improve you?" kind of way

That's what I quite like about the Cybermen. Like I said a Dalek will kill you out of hate but a Cyberman? A cyberman will drag you down to a converter and force you to turn into another souless, emotionless husk like them and all the while said Cyberman will think he's doing the right thing and will be thinking that he's helping you and it just won't understand why you're screaming, fighting and resisting it.

I think they did that idea quite right in Doomsday when the Cybermen invade the world and broadcast a message to humanity pretty much telling us that they are simply helping us by turning us into them and there is nothing to fear and that they are only here to improve us

I'll be honest, if they tapped more in this "our view of life is this and we're trying to help you", it could be neat.

I think there's a Doctor tenth episode where he calls out the Cybermen for ignoring a promise not to harm humans if he surrenders himself and the Cyberman was like "That was designated, a lie."
Could have been more neat if he argued that he wasn't going to harm them by upgrading or something.

Yeah, I feel like I'd give them a shot.

To be brutally honest, though, if I could express myself fully in the biological sense, then I wouldn't be a carnivore or omnivore with a hardwired biological need to eat any sort of meat at all. Would be nice to not have to do that. Maybe someday.

"Alpha synuclein, having no single, well-defined tertiary structure, is an intrinsically disordered protein ... which, under certain pathological conditions, can misfold in a way that exposes its core hydrophobic residues to the intracellular milieu, thus providing the opportunity for hydrophobic interactions to occur with a similar, equally exposed protein.[80] This could lead to self assembly and subsequent aggregation into large, insoluble fibrils known as amyloids."

One funny nostalgic trip is the impact the dog Lassie had on my preference for dogs when I was young.
I didn't even watch Lassie really, but it was so popular in the cultural zeitgeist at the time.

Now I can't say rough collies are my favourite dogbreed, but they're probably the one I still find the most beautiful.
