Now the line fault indicator on the power strip has come on.
This bee has apparently caused a slight ground fault. By shoving pollen and wax into the ground socket, presumably she has created a high-impedance connection to the adjacent wiring somehow. Just enough to register a line fault, not enough to actually melt the wax and/or cause a fire... yet.
She is working hard to kill me and burn down my house, so it should only 'bee' a matter of time.
Those extroverts and polys who preach about connecting with others, but whose relationships are so hollow and fleeting and meaningless.
Their whole social life built upon insincerity and societal illusion.
The depths of one voice, much less the chorus of voices around this world, scare them enough to push any real understanding away.
Case-by-case, but generally, these sorts invoke a rare disdain - no pity. It is how they are built, however.
I cannot fault them. But it hurts to know them.
So many works of art where the result shows more than what the creator intended; more than the creator knows. Works by liberals that show the big picture, where Democrats fail, where government preys. Conservative works that show the destitution of sociopathy run amok, and tradition torturing humanity's natural inclination to progress.
Smell 'o vision might not be a far off possibility. Question is if there'll be a market for it.
If we can grow animal matter in labs for consumption, then transmitting tastes & smells would seem to logically follow.
It could greatly enhance VR-everything, non-VR games, movies, streaming. Porn.
It can also be used to send everyone's farts to everyone else.
At least one person is going to unwittingly taste piss.
I've a "full steam ahead" attitude towards most transhuman tech. Uplifting is one that I'm a tad wary of. Responsibility & consequences. Liberty, growth.
Also, so many of us wish we could "talk" to our pets. We might be disappointed by that.
I could expound on these, but I bring them up because spiders. I want to tell them that they're more than welcome in my home, but there's some ground rules. Don't get on me, stay away from my bed & shower, avoid my desk if I'm using it. Then, all's cool.
Somehow, I was able to flap my talking meat to make a good argument re science funding, truly free market, political & "private" interference in science funding.
This almost never happens anymore. I used to be very articulate, but not no mo'. It's often only with a keyboard that I'm able to say anything at all.
TrⒶnshumanist. Some kind of market anarchy. Individualist. Transhumanist foremost. Toots on & enjoys a wide range of things.
