How would you explain your basic #life #philosophy?


Have fun but don't harm anybody. Anybody is including #nature, #earth, #environment, plants, animals, #climate and you.

Darwin is dead, of course he is.
"God is dead. And we have killed him!" is a famous quote by #FriedrichNietzsche, known by any scholar of basic #Philosophy.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #academia, #chinoiserie, #economics, #gametheory, #literature, #lowbrowart, #mathematicians, #mathematics, #philosophy, #physics, #poetry, #science and #talking (and listening...sometimes 😏). Wow, I feel like a snob just looking at those tags, so:

My musical tastes are broad and shallow. I'm basically, guiltily monolingual (though I'd be happy to get back into Hindi if I had someone to talk to... I'm not ready to inflict my French on anyone yet). I have the soul of a stamp-collector, or perhaps, to be kinder, a medieval scholastic. My guilty pleasures include reading shitty, self-indulgent fanfiction fix-its and running too far in dumb places/conditions. I love to travel, especially in moldy, old European cities, but rarely get to do so for pleasure. I also like the outdoors, provided that it doesn't go much above 25 C... Feynman was my first crush. (Actually, that's a lie, I think it was the guy with the turtlenecks from Earth Final Conflict, but I don't even remember his name. No, that's also a lie, I think it was 'Liam.') I may or may not still have a huge man-crush on Pascal.

I find Facebook deeply boring, and not a great way to find new people or ideas (also, everyone I know is on there). Twitter has its uses, but those are mostly: finding interesting thinkers, and then, well, twitting them 😏. I thought about trying Diaspora a few years ago, but now all the cool people I followed on Google+ are... not on Google+ anymore. This is, apparently, what happens to me: the mysterious operations of the free market manage to create something that I really love, and then there isn't enough of a consumer base to actually sustain it. It happens with make-up, books, TV series and ice cream flavors too. Economics is a bitch. (But I love her anyway.)

Dark Matter


Dark matter is a form of matter that is thought to account for approximately 85% of the matter in the universe and about a quarter of its total energy density. Most experts think dark matter to be ubiquitous in the universe. Dark matter is called dark because it does not appear to interact with observable electromagnetic radiation, such as light.

Left to you, Gentle Reader, to compare and contrast the properties of Dark Matter with the Five Laws of Stupidity.

Why weren't there any mathematics professors in the Stone Age ? And why did we evolve a capacity for rational thought but at the same time such ferocious stupidity ? This review of a review has the answers !
