Re: Pictures Thread 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance

Just returned from my university's academic exchange with China. I got sent into the heart of Manchuria/Inner Mongolia while my Uni took on a staff member from over there. It was quite a trip. Grew a beard, shaved the beard. Ate a steppe diet, slept with steppe women, taught the works of Bronze Age ...

Re: Mother is the First other: The Human Instrumentality Project and Lacanian Psychoanalysis

They are not mutually exclusive: see Lacan's fourth seminar on object-relation. Lacan criticizes Klein on some major issues, still his vision builds on hers more than replacing it. Curious, I always saw more influence of Kleinian psychodynamics in the Instrumentality. The whole "breaking of th...

Re: Post-Apocalyptic Urban Design: What can Los Angeles learn from Tokyo-III Resilient Urbanism?

https://youtu.be/gJPoaD0kEK8 I wanted to explore what we can learn about the future of humankind from science fiction and what they got right. Tokyo-III, the other City of Angels lol, was the first case study to come to mind. What can we learn from a city designed to protect its inhabitants? The Ev...

Re: FML general thread [8]

I'm now 30 years old. I never imagined myself being this old, and still can't. The worst part is that my biological prime is behind me, my body will now steadily lose its functionality over the course of many decades. And it's already happening. Over the past year and a half, I've lost my ability t...

Re: Rule34: When does it go too far?

Evangelion is the ultimate #NoFap #NoPorn manifesto.

The existence of Rule34 is too far ipso facto because the de jure territory it occupies is the sanctity of the human soul.

Base lusts should either be suppressed by Buddhist self-discipline techniques or fulfilled on a willing partner.

Re: Internet toxicity (Social media, fandom shipping, etc)

An anecdote: Lord Byron received some wonderful notices from his publisher that one of his female devotees clawed out one of the eyes out of her husband after he tossed her copy of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage in the trash -- and the ensuing legal case in which Byron was supposed to testify in while i...

https://preview.ibb.co/eawoJH/portrait_velvia.jpg Was teaching a studio lighting course and figured I'd sit for a few. One of the students is shooting all of her projects on expired rolls of 35mm velvia. Thought this one came out interesting. Plenty of imperfections, might even be a hair out of foc...

Re: EGF's House of Lonely Hearts

My worst years of womanizing are mostly behind me. I spent about a year doing a walking-tour of Europe during '12, in addition to studying abroad in '13-14, spent most of that time in Iberia, Italy and Greece and got up to a fair amount of romantic shenanigans, ending up in six simultaneous relation...

Re: EGF's House of Lonely Hearts

But, yes the guy who has a crush on me and is sorta in love with me is my friend the guy who cheated on me. If he's saying that he's still in love with you but cheated on you anyway, he's really probably not, and it's best not to waste your time with him or anyone else like him. You can take it fro...

Re: The Earth is Flat.

Everyone is born believing the earth is flat. It's the vaccinations that mind control us into to changing our thoughts. I've found in my research the only way to reverse this is by listening to White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane on a loop for twelve hours while tripping on LSD. Been looking into th...

The Earth is Flat.

Just finished reading Plutarch's Placita Philosophorum thought he made a really compelling argument for the flat-earth theory instead of the current globe-centric model we've currently been using. Any thoughts? I mean look at all of these pioneers of atomic theory (Lecippus, Democritus) and pioneers...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Alright, heres an idea for a fanfic that's serious: What if a paradox is created where the main characters meet alternate versions of themselves, like a guy named Ikari Shinji who thinks highly of himself, or a girl named Ayanami Rei with black hair who easily expresses her emotions. Maybe the char...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

How. What magic is there that I can't see. (I'm going to use rans post to list my complaints with this show now, I'm sorry) The show is really pretty, both animation and background art, but that has been the only thing I've enjoyed consistently so far. The music is either off or way too loud. One p...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Just caught up on most of the seasonals. Thought I'd drop some thoughts: Beatless 6.5/10 Direction here is really all over the place. Read the first volume of the LN and while that seems very condensed and secure in the story it's trying to tell -- domestic robot-mommy-gf dramedy with the occasional...

It's not projecting if you stated it: you established this line of conversation by putting out there. If you don't like talking about it, don't brag about it.

Re: EGF's House of Lonely Hearts

That's a start; but you don't get to decide that you do have that "emotional intelligence" on your own - that's the point. Again, maybe we're getting hung up what I seem to have said -- and not what I actually stated. Consent is a conversation. Obviously the partner is privy to that and i...
