Twitter was making my life worse visa vi phone usage, so I've deleted the app.

So I guess this is going to be my primary...
Discourse generator? Is that the name for this kind of social?

Feel like it's more of a reactor the a generator.... Idk, hopefully we will have some interesting descussions.

I like the bookmark feature, so I don't feel like I have to read a whole thread in one sitting.. Want to be more thoughtful

How to teach advanced math to an interested and intelegant adult who knows no maths?

In Koopman operator theory,
We describe the state of a nonlinear system as a vector in the Hilbert space of all possible observables, and are able to describe the dynamics as a linear operator on this space.

This is such an exciting idea

I know this is kind of slot and pretty wacky, and I'm honestly going to be surprised if anyone reads it but I've come to it over the course of several years, and if anyone's interested I'd love to hear your thoughts

So in this philosophy, the world is split into 3 layers:
- The Formal
- The Social
- The Metabolic

Take any anthropic phenomenon of interest and decompose it into these 3 components. Look at how they interact and recombine.

This social layer of reality couples to, and exists within the "physical" layer.

In reality its all physical because the mind is physical. So what I mean by "physical" is the macroscopic flows of mass & energy; The Matabolic.

Inside the social emerges another layer of reality. The layer of intersubjective rules and systems, of forma and burócratas; The Formal.

I assume that the infinite set of such filds contain all the information from the underlying social space.

From this point of view memes apear as excitations in certain filds, which propergate through the social,
and which couple bound states that exist within individual minds.

More formally, Imagen a space consisting of the combined interiority of a population.

A field over this space could, in principle, be constructed by determining the relative presence of a particular idea at each point, ie in each person's mind.

I think Dawkin's memes is a good idea, but a better analogy is to radiation propagating through the social aether.

I find it's easier to think about power, economics and social dynamics from this perspective.

Just got a new book, been wanting to get ahold of this for a while. Whent to an irl bookshop

Can you trap a galaxy in a crystal ball? I tried! Back in 2018 I took this image of the Milky Way through a crystal ball from ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

One or two accounts regularly posting things that don't interest you is manageable, but the more you add, the easier it is to lose the signal in the noise. With no algorithm working to keep you addicted, it's easy to let your Home timeline get overrun. Follow freely, but also be ready to unfollow for basic quality of life reasons. The Federated timeline can be overwhelming, but your Home timeline shouldn't be. You have to tend it like a garden, and a little pruning goes a long way. #feditips

On British trains, GWR in particular, room temperature water comes in tiny, unsatisfying bottles and is charged for.

However hot water is free.

It's supposed to cost like 50p, but the train Gards never actually charge you for it.
