But I like to think that is how I know you. Are we perhaps all the same? Do you in your heart of hearts believe the same things as me? We obey the laws we must, we obey.

Even my cold heart has a heart of hearts. My heartmeat is rich and strong, gamy and dark as dried blood it beats yet. It beats under the coldest of conditions, being of the darkest side of light.

See you on the flip side.
Swallowed up,
burning like a sun on the other side, dark in this one.
Terrible gravity.
Peel the skin from a toy balloon,

Sprinkled on the surface like a donut.
Expanding into collapse, we travel,
expanding on our path.
We will be waiting he said,
see you on the flip side.

Why do you do what you do? What is the engine that keeps you up late at night or gets you going in the morning? Where is your happy place? What stands between you and your ultimate dream?

Heavy questions. One researcher believes that writing down the answers can be decisive for students.

He co-authored a paper that demonstrates a startling effect: nearly erasing the gender and ethnic minority achievement gap for 700 students over the course of two years with a short written exercise in setting goals.

Jordan Peterson teaches in the department of psychology at the University of Toronto. For decades, he has been fascinated by the effects of writing on organizing thoughts and emotions.

Experiments going back to the 1980s have shown that "therapeutic" or "expressive" writing can reduce depression, increase productivity and even cut down on visits to the doctor.

"The act of writing is more powerful than people think," Peterson says.

Most people grapple at some time or another with free-floating anxiety that saps energy and increases stress. Through written reflection, you may realize that a certain unpleasant feeling ties back to, say, a difficult interaction with your mother. That type of insight, research has shown, can help locate, ground and ultimately resolve the emotion and the associated stress.

At the same time, "goal-setting theory" holds that writing down concrete, specific goals and strategies can help people overcome obstacles and achieve.

'It Turned My Life Around'

Recently, researchers have been getting more and more interested in the role that mental motivation plays in academic achievement — sometimes conceptualized as "grit" or "growth mindset" or "executive functioning."

Peterson wondered whether writing could be shown to affect student motivation. He created an undergraduate course called Maps of Meaning. In it, students complete a set of writing exercises that combine expressive writing with goal-setting.

Students reflect on important moments in their past, identify key personal motivations and create plans for the future, including specific goals and strategies to overcome obstacles. Peterson calls the two parts "past authoring" and "future authoring."

"It completely turned my life around," says Christine Brophy, who, as an undergraduate several years ago, was battling drug abuse and health problems and was on the verge of dropping out. After taking Peterson's course at the University of Toronto, she changed her major. Today she is a doctoral student and one of Peterson's main research assistants.

In an early study at McGill University in Montreal, the course showed a powerful positive effect with at-risk students, reducing the dropout rate and increasing academic achievement.

Peterson is seeking a larger audience for what he has dubbed "self-authoring." He started a for-profit company and is selling a version of the curriculum online. Brophy and Peterson have found a receptive audience in the Netherlands.

At the Rotterdam School of Management, a shortened version of self-authoring has been mandatory for all first-year students since 2011. (These are undergraduates — they choose majors early in Europe).

The latest paper, published in June, compares the performance of the first complete class of freshmen to use self-authoring with that of the three previous classes.

Overall, the "self-authoring" students greatly improved the number of credits earned and their likelihood of staying in school. And after two years, ethnic and gender-group differences in performance among the students had all but disappeared.

The ethnic minorities in question made up about one-fifth of the students. They are first- and second-generation immigrants from non-Western backgrounds — Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

While the history and legacy of racial oppression are different from that in the United States, the Netherlands still struggles with large differences in wealth and educational attainment among majority and minority groups.

'Zeroes Are Deadly'

At the Rotterdam school, minorities generally underperformed the majority by more than a third, earning on average eight fewer credits their first year and four fewer credits their second year. But for minority students who had done this set of writing exercises, that gap dropped to five credits the first year and to just one-fourth of one credit in the second year.

How could a bunch of essays possibly have this effect on academic performance? Is this replicable?

Melinda Karp is the assistant director for staff and institutional development at the Community College Research Center at Teachers College, Columbia University. She leads studies on interventions that can improve college completion. She calls Peterson's paper "intriguing." But, she adds, "I don't believe there are silver bullets for any of this in higher ed."

Peterson believes that formal goal-setting can especially help minority students overcome what's often called "stereotype threat," or, in other words, to reject the damaging belief that generalizations about ethnic-group academic performance will apply to them personally.

Karp agrees. "When you enter a new social role, such as entering college as a student, the expectations aren't always clear." There's a greater risk for students who may be academically underprepared or who lack role models. "Students need help not just setting vague goals but figuring out a plan to reach them."

The key for this intervention came at crunch time, says Peterson. "We increased the probability that students would actually take their exams and hand in their assignments." The act of goal-setting helped them overcome obstacles when the stakes were highest. "You don't have to be a genius to get through school; you don't even have to be that interested. But zeroes are deadly."

Karp has a theory for how this might be working. She says you often see at-risk students engage in self-defeating behavior "to save face."

"If you aren't sure you belong in college, and you don't hand in that paper," she explains, "you can say to yourself, 'That's because I didn't do the work, not because I don't belong here.' "

Writing down their internal motivations and connecting daily efforts to blue-sky goals may have helped these young people solidify their identities as students.

Brophy is testing versions of the self-authoring curriculum at two high schools in Rotterdam, and monitoring their psychological well-being, school attendance and tendency to procrastinate.

Early results are promising, she says: "It helps students understand what they really want to do."

Spamalot / Depressions
« on: July 08, 2015, 01:44:32 PM »
I was gonna write a poem, but instead I'm just gonna post. Not gonna lie I'm pretty seriously depressed here.

Given different circumstances I would kill myself, or find ways to die. Maybe just start drinking again and defer my life to that oblivion. There are lots of ways to kill yourself.

I could kill parts of myself. Deny them expression, love, attention.

I could deny everyone my light, hoard it just for my sons.

I'm burning, burned, burnt to ashes.

Reborn, but I am still burning!

Sigh, I can't eat because nothing sounds good. Not a single thing sounds appetizing to me in the least. Perhaps my body is tired of being stuck with this head. lol

I think I'm on a hunger strike of sorts.

The circumstances I would kill myself under will never exist, don't worry about me pals I'm not sharing as a cry for help but instead general lamentations. I pray for oblivion, and dare God to strike me down but in the end my will to live is very strong, and now I have beautiful sons to pave the way for.

All that being said, 90 days to a new me. Off to a rocky start but I will rejoin y'all. I am going to eat, and gain weight, and go to work and hang out with people. Gonna fake this shit until I feel it.

I'll see my enemies crushed, and driven before me. The lamentations of their women will be sweet to my ears and when that dies down there will only be love.  :smitten:

Spamalot / Listening to Guts over Fear

Trying to get brave enough to go down to the office. Every time I go in there I want to start screaming its not enough, the kinds of conversations we have are good but how do we live?


The fuck am I gonna do? It's too late to start over. This is the only thing I, thing I know.

I spend a lot of time reading, as you guys can gather I'm sure. As soon as I'm done with "The Will to Power" I will have seriously read the majority of Nietzsche's work (and re-read much) and the only person I know who loves Nietzsche as much as me is Kili. I was reading somewhere else that at this point I have read probably more Nietzsche (the article wasn't about Nietzsche) than most people and it was talking about the level of intimacy you have to have on a subject to be considered an expert.

I am an expert in MMOs. lol

Seriously tho, I was thinking about it this morning and was googling looking for the article I read about it in and found this instead:

So how do you learn to become an expert?

The basis of becoming an expert is to read more than anyone else on your subject. If you read on your subject for one hour per working day for seven years (that’s a PhD and one post-doc position), that 1820 hours of reading is going to take you a long way to becoming an expert. Especially since the majority of your peers are unlikely to read even half of that amount.

Taking the article with a tiny grain of salt (I agree with most I think) I first got a little depressed at realizing I'm some kind of expert lol. In worthless shit.

I'm also an expert in all kinds of weird shit, the things I read and write and think about with regards to my eskimo philosophy and shit. I know a bunch of you guys are too, pretty cool to see the kinds of things we are collectively doing.

up and down up and down,

so its too late to start over right? I keep thinking I would rather just be a butcher.

The unhappiest butcher in the world. I could gaze out from behind the meatcase, master of my own little world.



This is how we peptalk ourselves, the fearless leader afraid to go to the office. They don't pay me anyhow so fuck 'em!

Synth's Book Club / Blood Meridian
« on: June 01, 2015, 01:55:59 PM »
I started to Love McCarthy for The Road, I don't know if I saw the movie or the book first but I enjoyed the theme very much, I feel so very close to my sons. The "Border Trilogy" was also good, I have read many many westerns in my life, probably have read every single Louis L'Amour book there is. I very much love the story contained in Blood Meridian, almost as if McCarthy in playing with ideas glimpsed something sublime.  But probably not so different from his other work as Harold Bloom thinks in the article I am going to link. I don't know, Child of God was also very good taken in its own context.

So this is what Bloom has to say:

dude seems kinda unbearable but his credentials are hard to argue with and I don't mean that in any superficial way. I guess BM was a little biblical for me, not that I am as violent as the men in the book but I was raised around violence and it certainly has its own kind of genius. I also of course was in the military, and I am very warlike.

The point of all that being is obviously we all bring parts of ourselves to books that we read, I know a few of you have already read it and I know we talked about it a little. I used a line from the end in the wedding yesterday:

"A ceremony then. One could well argue that there are not categories of no ceremony but only ceremonies of greater or lesser degree and deferring to this argument we will say that this is ceremony of a certain magnitude perhaps more commonly called a wedding"

Anyone wanna talk Blood Meridian with me, or any of his work really. I kinda hate making this post because it seems kinda pretentious, maybe we should just read books and not talk about them.

Cold winds blow over the tundra that is my heart.

Memories howl through, punishing what grows there. Small and stunted things here, products of this environment.

This is my home, my ice age. I am an ice age.

I burn like the sun, I burn and burn but my heart lies on the other side of me, and I am unable to change my trajectory. I fly like a storm

When summer is here, everyone comes. When summer is here, things grow easily and quickly.

But this is an ice age. I prepared the way for them, I made a shelter within myself for my family because I know I am cold. They have their own warmth too you see, and they also burn like suns.

They absorb the flames that burst free from me and I move in my orbit obeying my physics.

I am the shelter, I stretch my being over them and whisper to them

"The storm is also me,

Nive Nielsen "Wrong" LIVE @ PotLuckCon - Cloud 44-A Ribbon Mic on Vocals

PotLuckCon 2014 "Casita Crawl" - Cloud Microphones and Nive Nielsen

Cloud 44-A's "V" setting for Vocals, "M" setting for Slide guitar, with Cloud's JRS-34 ribbons on the rhythm and lead.

Cloud Microphones converted their casita into a pop up recoding studio and hosted an open mic recording session at the El Conquistador Resort in Tucson, Arizona during the PotLuckCon audio conference on August 1, 2014.

Nive Nielsen and the Deer Children perform "Wrong" -LIVE- for an unseen audience of conference attendees in the adjoining control room, listening on studio monitors, at the hotel and resort. CD's were burt in real time as the audio was being mixed live on a console. The CD's were then taken into yet another adjoining room where Michael Dixon of Lathe Cuts took the audio and cut vinyl on the spot. Open mic participants left with CD and vinyl recordings of the performance they gave just moments earlier! It was really fun!

Where do we even begin? At this point in my life the past is all here with me, always has been. Am I expanding?

It's groundhog day, it's groundhog day. Every day is the same, I wake up and make coffee. What did I used to do? Wake up and piss and shit, scratch and what now.

What are we doing that is fundamentally different from those awakened monkeys of Greece? You see it's all a lie, we are still just sitting around and pissing and shitting and eating -- wherever this human entity goes we will get there eating and fucking. 

Come on dudes, I'm not even being some kinda philosopher right now -- what have we really done that is really that different? Newer and better ways to stay alive and to masturbate both literally and figuratively?

The world I live in, my middle class utopia. Why did I take the pill? I guess I didn't take it, it was administered to me. I can't give a shit about this world baby cuz I'm a thug.

Can't get in the mood to do this shit sometimes. #1 no one will take me seriously, #2 I'm crazy #3 I don't even know!

I don't give myself enough credit for being the stay at home dad, I do a lot -- probably just as much actual work or more than most of you (minus you overachievers)

Doing the dishes really tempers a man's visions of grandeur. Gonna go take a shower and look at the model of the universe I have in my head.

General Discussion / Etok down
« on: May 10, 2015, 02:23:05 PM »
Etok Edwardsen, you can read about him in

"Etok: A Story of Eskimo Power", this is an excerpt from it

"The Department of the Interior's environmental study is childish and naive. We have a belief that the Department of the Interior does not even know that there are one hundred forty-seven different varieties of birds which nest on the North Slope by the millions. It is true that we do not have college degrees certifying our expertness on the flora and the fauna of the North Land, but our very ability to exist in the North Land is our college degree. And we have not been consulted by anyone.

"The draft report essentially contains no study of the impact of the pipeline on the human environment. Why is it that the Western civilization worries about things and does not worry about people? The whole thrust of the draft report is its impact on things."

The reporters were interested. Here were several hundred people in Washington debating whether or not to build a pipeline across Alaska. They were talking in terms of caribou and block valves and the survival of the peregrine falcon. They had left the human factor out of the equation entirely. The development of a major oil industry in the Arctic would change, perhaps finally and forever, the Eskimo life. The Eskimos had legitimate claims in the courts and in Congress to lands over which the pipeline would cross. Yet, where had they been consulted, who had asked them?

No one. Charlie went on. "We are not a part of any decision-making process. We are not a member of any of the various committees studying the problem. No one had the common courtesy to notify us of this hearing on the future of our lives and lands. Why were we not notified? Why do we have to rely upon the public press for information as to what is happening to our homeland six thousand miles away in Washington, D.C.?

"There is nothing in the study to protect the people should development drive away the animals upon which they depend for food. The United States was farsighted enough to protect its own skin if damage ensue by requiring the pipeline company to file a five-mill ion-dollar bond ... but if damage ensue, the Eskimo will be the one who is really hurt, and there is no bond for him. The only method Western society has for substituting such a loss is welfare. We don't like welfare .... "

With an intensity that no one in that room will forget, Charlie concluded, "This draft report is a product of massive ignorance, and it is the Arctic Slope Eskimos who will suffer and are the forgotten people. The Department of the Interior is composed of sophomores who control the destiny of these forgotten people."

One reporter who was present called the absolute stillness that followed Charlie's testimony "the silence of the shamed." The Interior Department examiner fumbled for questions.

"Mr. Edwardsen, you make reference to the long-term effect of pollution and go on to say the effects of pollution on the environment may be irreversible. If you could point us to some studies ... "

Edwardsen rounded on him. "I will be pleased to do this . . . I will be happy to talk about pollution. However, I would like to talk about a form of pollution that has continuously existed in the Department of the Interior ever since the Indians were first made the wards of the Secretary in 1849. The story of the American Indian under the care of the Secretary of the Interior has been one of conquest, paternalism, and greed. What the white man did in the last century to the Indians of the Plains he is doing today to the Eskimos of the Arctic Slope. He is doing it and there is no one willing to stop it. You ask for studies of environmental degradation. I point to one hundred years of total failure of the Department of the Interior to Alaska's Native people. Up in the North Slope there is not one legally patented land claim, and yet the department will let the oil be developed. Acting in our behalf it has sold miles of our gravel to the oil companies and we have not received one penny from this trustee relationship.

"I speak of pollution. If and when the birds of the Arctic die, who is the Secretary going to sue? The oil companies? Who is going to protect the Eskimos from starvation? We are a byproduct of internal apathy of the Department of the Interior, and as stewardships of our resources and as stewardships of the Indians, that department has flunked. It has failed, and we know that under the disguise of oil, the further degradation of American lives-of the Eskimos-will occur.

"What this hearing here is, is a mental facade. 'We had a public forum, therefore we are innocent now.' But until the Interior Department fully discloses all of the evidence, all of the communications of the oil companies and the state of Alaska, this pipeline cannot go through:"

His brown eyes burned with the intensity of his feeling; his voice was hypnotic in its power. Gathering his papers, Charlie strode out of the circle of TV lights. The audience was silent for one moment, for two, and then burst into spontaneous applause. They rose, in tribute to the honesty of this boy-man, and they applauded him with a standing ovation. But he did not see or hear them, for by then he was out of the hall, hands trembling, lighting a cigarette as best he could.

He was followed by the press-by the reporters, the photographers, and the TV interviewers. And there, in the hallway with no preparation he held his news conference.

"If I sell you the Brooklyn Bridge and you are so dumb you buy it, then I have your money but you do not have my bridge. The bridge belongs to whoever owns it and you are the victim of a gyp. The United States got gypped when it bought Alaska. That's all.

"My people are poor. The whites are rich. My people are sick from the white man's diseases; they are poorly fed and poorly corned in the winter. The federal employees at Barrow live in new houses with electricity and running water. Give us compensation for lands we have lost. Give us title to the lands we hold. We are not begging for charity!

"If the United States is prepared to buy the Arctic Slope or to rent it, the Eskimos are prepared to negotiate, to discuss terms." The flashbulbs popped, the hand-held cameras whirred, and more and more microphones were pushed in front of his face as he continued.

"How can the white man sell our land when they do not own it? How can they lease our land to the oil companies when they do not own it?" Working himself up into a dangerous paroxysm at the unfairness of it all, he shouted at the cameras: "If the pigs want to use our land, then THE PIGS MUST PAY THE RENT!"

Spamalot / the expansion of the universe
« on: May 09, 2015, 02:03:13 AM »
Latest idea about what time is: that it is the expansion of the universe that is occurring, if time is space then time is also movement, then wouldn't the expansion of the universe move us right along with it? Not too much more too it than that, if the universe was expanding faster as they say it is would we experience any change? Seems like we wouldn't because we are part of it and in it.

I feel the universe expanding  :bick:

seems right eh, i guess not enough math in this here post, agrul could you do this up with some math

“We can discuss the fact that an hour ago, our brains were in a state that was correlated with fewer things,” he said. “But our perception that time is flowing — that is a different matter altogether. Most probably, we will need a further revolution in physics that will tell us about that.”

Anyways up next is halfdried and smoked Eulachon (its like a smelt).  Anyone ever kipper herring or anything like that? I jarred some of this fish and it is too soft so I'm going to brine and sundry them for 2 days before I smoke them to firm them up. It's also time for fiddlehead ferns, lovage, and nettles, I don't make anything with those I would share with the exception of the nettle pesto. If I said I would send you food and I did not, all my wild food is gone with the exception of some cubed moose. Made my last salmon yesterday too.

« on: April 28, 2015, 08:40:43 PM »
After I stepped down as leader of whatever guild I was leading in World of Warcraft I retreated to 20-29 and 30-39 pvp. Ended up having a real good time, and I fought against other pvp twinks mainly with everyone else blowing like chaff before me. So I was thinking, on this pvp server we have here with red99 you have to put in 2005 levels of immersion, growing a fine bristly neckbeard in order to compete for the finest pixels.

However if you structured a level 20, 30, 40 pvp bracket with strict rules on what items are permitted (i.e. no fungi tunics, ragebringers etc.) and hosted in in different venues with rules like no zoning/plugging etc. you could have some pretty awesome rumbles without a huge timesink into gear. Not only that, leveling a character to 40 takes no time at all, and you can try out all kinds of classes. I mean in my experience if you played a char to 40 you understand the basic mechanics of the class. Also the added bonus of calling out those terrible pvp twinks, forcing them to compete without their fungi etc.

just imagine for a minute, a level 40 royal rumble 6v6 in Crushbone. idk what to do about spectators or whatever but the general concept is good. maybe no viewers, and stream the rumbles instead. Anyways just an idea -- obviously needs some refinement and I'll be honest I don't even wanna run it but I know some fucking neckbeard will settle into the position like a mother hen.
