The shimmering ghost haze is almost unseen in the starless skies. But it has to be there! Because the street signs brightly glow. Different car’s headlight beams fight for my tired eyes. A wonderful sight of natural machine magic, or a real life cinematic color show!

I grip my wheel loosely and I drive slowly. I stop at the red octagons from habit and memory. I watch the glowing beauty and I read other signs infrequently Distracted by the power of that nocturnal piece from the world's gallery.

High-beams bouncing into the street turning it white. The glowing patterns inside are a faint billion hues. You can see each lamppost beam scraping the night. Why can’t I explain to you why this is my muse?

But let's try anyway, despite the impossible challenge. The red, yellow, and green lights are always so dull by day. The sun’s sinister grip even blights traffic cones that are tangy orange. But by nightfall, and mistwake, the dryness is sent away.

Dazzle returns to the world, with eerie light expanding in the road’s colorful billowing mist cloak. So, The details of the colors and sign-words are blurring Because my windshield is Impressionist. Blurry, but crystalline in the roke.

My friend in the passenger seat and I bicker over what we’re seeing. “It’s like your looking a Van Gogh and saying it’s ugly” “No, it’s more like your giving divine meaning to a wall’s painting” But I’m happy and content to disagree with my friend freely.

The night is a nostalgic vision of a slowed down movie scene Each frame of the drive taken, piece by piece, one at a time My sleepiness transforms my sight into a museum of the serene I wade toward the unknown visual siren’s voice, a soft chime.

I look out across the lake who shines brighter than the mist

Blurred images like cities in the night In the neon images of a cyberpunk setting Are the beauty that lies before me in the light. The crickets' hum was hiding the noise of driving.

I am distracted by this foggy beauty, making others bored. “But it’s endless refraction and dreamy pale qualities!” are unlike the unremarkable guardrails, which I drift toward. “Money makes all art worse, produced in higher and higher qua-”

I have been an envious sower of anger and correction When I have perused the views and birthrights of others I have started to attack and send malediction There is no sound, except for breathy wuthers Reason’s fury boils without the final effortful battlecry of a lobster Only inaudible moans, and bitching, slowly sickening in jealous pain. Forming criticisms instead of winning deeds, I, a leech-blooded spinster prick my finger with my needle each time I scold “shame”

hii! honestly i might just be screaming this post into the void, i genuinely have no idea if people will read it (certainly i’m under no illusions people will care)

but still, i felt like writing something, and i want to get actually into this, so here’s the situation!

sorry for like not posting for ages, i honestly ended up pretty unhappy with the first chapter, and i didn’t feel like fleshing out those characters or settings, it was mostly just a jumping off point to see if i could do it.

anyway, i’ve come up with two narratives that i think i wanna tell, both in the same world as WTSCU was, but with a little bit of like, actual plot in mind, not just me trying to like formulate my ideal world in a narrative form

i do also love just thinking about a more sustainable/peaceful/equitable/leisurely future though, i find it so relaxing and motivating, so if people wanted i totally would absolutely love to like share some of my worldbuilding for the 2090 setting.

so back to those two stories! the first concept i have wouldn’t be utopian, or really happy at all- it’d be set in the late 30’s early 40’s, which is one of the darker moments in the timeline, but i think i have an actual story i want to tell there, and it could provide context for this little project

concept two is a sweet little sapphic romance where we get a little more into the realm of just me having fun and imagining fun solarpunk futuristic shit, and, of course, that smut that i talked about.

just as a warning, the rest of this blogpost might be a little NSFW

so like. okay. i feel like i have such fun sexy little things i want to write, but i am not good at writing, nor is horny really an ideal mood for writing in? plus, it’s deeply awkward to actually post it where i know people i know will find it.

but also like it’s kinda so much fun to talk about sex, and there’s just too many ideas bouncing around inside my head for me to not write them down.

so the gay sex story is happening, but don’t expect actual smut for like a little bit, i’ll need at least a couple of chapters of context first.

life is also absurdly busy right now, so it might take forever, but i promise i will make it actually happen

when i do get around to writing the spicy stuff though, i can’t be the only one doing it so it would be nice if others wrote some sexy words for their own girlblogs

This is my first time making pseudo-science so please be nice.

Hey want something you already know rephrased into a clearer form.

Hey do you consider yourself open minded?

Do you consider yourself close minded?

Or maybe you think you're an introvert?

Or an ambivert, or an extravert?

Well I’ve got a better idea.

You are maybe introverted only towards some people. And open towards only some ideas.

Each idea or person can be thought of as existing in a network of connections.

An introverted person does not exist. A close minded person does not either.

You are not just a single trait. You are a thousand million traits spread out across a million ideas and people. Each person has their own spectrum attached to them for how introverted you are around them. Each idea, or person has its own spectrum.

When you define yourself as open minded, or extraverted, you're more so giving a generalization.

Part two openness to experience and extraversion are the same

Openness to experience is extraversion about non-social encounters. An introvert is closed to experience.

You can deconstruct both of them so that they merge into one another.

Extraversion is openness to people.

Fuck the definition of extraversion that talks about “gaining energy from other people” you gain energy from sleeping…

Part three: the four tensions Abstract metaphysics!!!+Big Five Personality traits! Let’s go!

There are four tensions present inside of objects, Space, Time, Essence and Eidos.

Time: the constant change of temporary traits, separating sensual object’s from their sensual qualities. Time is an asymmetry, the difference between the past and the future. The portal that vanishes once you step into another world, no world more important than the last.

Space: the attachment of temporary traits to the being of the object they are attached to. Imagine how I may sit in the United States despite being able to travel elsewhere. There is an unnecessary element attached to my being, and I am an unnecessary element attached to the US’s being.

Essence: is how the defining traits of an object connect to it. Essence is the opposite of time in some respects. Essence connects an apple’s ability to be eaten and experienced as a juicy crunchy sweet tart thing, with the apple itself. If you could not crunch into the sweet apple the apple, it would not be the same.

Eidos: is our theoretical access to an object's qualities. It is what separates the image of an apple from its natural ability to give us juicy goodness. This is the theoretical access of objects. If I stare at your face, I assume that you have the back of your head as well, even though I cannot see it.

There is a corresponding way of thinking about personality for each of these sections. The ones corresponding to Essence and Eidos are both generalizations. The ones corresponding to Time and Space are both heterogeneous all across.

Temporal personality:Your personality changes over time. This is your personality from one moment to the next. It’s that simple.

Spatial personality: This is discussed in part one. Your personality is made of a web of connected ideas. These ideas can be open or close. This is spatial, because it shows a network of connections that happen to be the case though they could be otherwise. You are open to one conspiracy theory for some reasons to another and closed to a different one.

Essential personality: people will often appeal to an inner self. This is the unchanging you. Regardless of whether you are aware, or not. I try to steer clear of this. For example introversion may be an essential part of you.

Eidetic personality: This is how you are identified from others personality wise. This is how we are not a blob of the same people.

A well made character in a story will have all of these (maybe). They should have a distinct, eidetic, essential, spatial, and temporal character.

There are some worldviews I am interested in thinking about today.

Expanding the concept of human rights, and animal rights, to inanimate objects.

The way I’ve heard this be done before is that certain geographical locations, like waterfalls, and beautiful views have a right to exist, and to be seen. This would justify why people need to see these beautiful landmarks.

I’m interested in more extreme versions of inanimate rights.

One framework would basically say that all objects animate or inanimate, deserve rights.

How could someone possibly justify such an absurd belief?

It’s pretty simple actually. Many people believe that conscious experience can be deconstructed, and that what we perceive as perception and sensory experience is a hallucination, generated by brain electricity. Take this cognitive science based philosophy and the concept of animal rights. Now consciousness doesn't exist, or is’t a valid idea, because it’s a hallucination. So if you extend rights to animals you have to extend them to all forms of matter.

I say matter, and not all objects, because this philosophy is a materialist one, hence the consciousness is a fake thing.

You could also justify inanimate rights in an even more radical third way.

If you believe that everything exists, material or otherwise. Like the UN, or ghosts, or the Planet mars, than you can make an immaterialist inanimate rights campaign work. Or an object rights campaign.

Inanimate right’s activists argue that consciousness does not determine wheter or not something gets rights or not. The only criteria determining rights is existence. Everything that exists get’s rights.

“As an Inanimate rights activist I propose that all objects have a right to exist, no matter how debatable it's objecthood is, including this speech which is why it will go on forever…” —final words of inanimate rights activist

What is the opposite of inanimate rights? One would first think that it’s giving rights only to one human being, or one entity. That would be a singular right belief system. One would secondly think that it is right’s nihilism, where you don’t believe in rights. You don’t think anyone is owed anything. But comparatively those philosophies are close-ish to universal inanimate right’s activism.

If you make a spectrum where full inanimates rights is at 100% rights having on one end, and right’s nihilism has 0% right’s having on the other, there is another position that would be at negative 100% right’s having

That’s right unrights exist! Unrights are when something is undeserved by a person. For example in a moderate unrights based society.

An unright is just a silly word for banning something. This is why most societies are both rights and unrights societies. And why most societies are anti-centrist by default

There’s a heft to a breath That reminds of - Finely brewed coffee, Two dollar chapstick, The tomatoes – of your garden

From blooming aromas, To tea bags abandoned - In waters un-waded, It seems I've over-steeped And left the kettle on

Your hair’s gotten long. But not long enough For you, to want, to tie, it up

I should do a Harold Bloom arch but for youtube videos

who is Harold bloom?

he is a literary critic who tells people that they need to read western canon books because of their apparent intrinsic worth. He is pig headed and arrogant, but I think that ultimately he has probably introduced some people to good books through skilled passionate arguments.

why should you do that I don't fullly understand. that seems stupid to force people to read books that agree with you

I don't think that people only need to read those books. but saying that people ought to read those books to the exclusion of everything else gets people to read those books. I think that I want people to watch youtube videos that have not be judged on aesthetic merits because they are youtube videos. Including videos that needed to be youtube videos, because they are intrinsically tied to the format.

like what?

Try watching History of the Entire World I guess by bill wurtz. I'll make more posts later to talk about other videos.

A writing

Strolling to the bathroom, Looking in the mirror; why am I like this? I splash my face. say “I can do this” but my voice is not how I remembered. I am almost taller than my mirror now;finally growing. I take off my shirt and gently run my fingertips down my back to relieve myself of this itch. I grab clothes to wear. I look down. First mistake. I throw on my clothes trying to not cry. Why am I like this? I try and take a deep breath. Why am I like this? I go and make breakfast and realize my shirt is too tight. Why am I like this? I get in the car. I am not yet driving. I smile. My dog is trying to lick my face. We are here. I can’t breathe. I walk in. They don’t know my secret. Why am I like this? I sigh in relief. I run up to them like I’m a little kid running to their best friend. I smile.

In Reply To: “Thanks For Your Response” — shrrrrub References: “Re: Can We Have Comments?” — FarkasCity Blog

My only concern is that you seem to want FarkasCity to be a conversation, of sorts, where all is given equal weight and whatnot. Is there any plan in place that prevents the general feed from being overly convoluted?

— shrrrrub

It’s not that I want FarkasCity to be a conversation per se, but more that I want everyone — including authors of blogs on their own sites — to have an equal voice should a conversation emerge.

If you’d like to keep a conversation organized, especially one that takes place across multiple sites, then link to posts that you're replying to so that readers can follow the conversation. If you’d like, you can also link to posts that reply to your own (see “Re: Can We Have Comments?” as an example of this).

Is there any plan in place that prevents the general feed from being overly convoluted?

Not at the moment. I did not anticipate the feed being as popular as it is, so I haven’t really thought about this. I can say that the there is a plan to keep the feed spam-free, though.

I’m open to this if this is something people want. If anyone has an idea of what this could look like, then write a reply or send me an email.

There has been some unexpected downtime today due to severe weather. The server is back up now, and no data was lost. I am currently working to ensure that it remains up as the storm continues. As always, please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Incident details

What happened

  1. At 2023-08-18 00:43-0400, the electricity went out. One minute later, the internet also went out. They were restored at 02:45-0400.
  2. The internet went in and out until it stabilized at 12:00-0400.
  3. At that time, the Internet Service Provider (ISP) gave the server a new IP address. This occurs very occasionally, but I have systems in place to automatically detect this and update the DNS records.
  4. The server that tells FarkasCity its public IP address was incorrectly configured, so the automatic system did not work.
  5. When I got off work at 12:30-0400, I immediately went to the server to fix the problem. Roughly 15 minutes later, I discovered the IP address change and manually corrected the DNS records.
  6. I wrote this post.

Next steps

  1. The Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) that FarkasCity is connected to has run out of battery power, so I am going to connect the secondary one. This should last the remainder of the storm.
  2. I am going to update the the IP detection script to check with multiple other servers, and to alert me if one is unavailable.

There's a place by the seashore

Covered in rocks, and seaweed, and droppings from black-tipped gulls.

At the top, I pretend there's a door.

It leads to a world of white nothings,

Where the sea and the sky meet in bright darkness,

and the stars don't shine.

When I climb to the tip of the rocks,

I look out at this world, of the sea and the sky,

And I wish I could cross that line.

I wish I could reach out my hand

And gather the soft darkness of the star-weary sky into my fingers.

I wish I could reach through the door and take a piece of that dim light back to my land,

So I could have it evermore.

I like to lie there, and think of the waves that wash upside-out in this world of mine.

And when the sun falls and the day runs away,

I go back, and with this brief view of a world that is more, I am fine.

I think it's the knowing that does it, that makes in all right in the end.

And yet...

To the Most Diplomatic and Respected Farkas Mayor:

Thanks for your reply. It was well thought-out, and honestly answered the question. I appreciate it.

My only concern is that you seem to want Farkas City to be a conversation, of sorts, where all is given equal weight and whatnot. Is there any plan in place that prevents the general feed from being overly convoluted?


mayor i am very sad by ur announcement u get ur reasons behind it and stuff but i dont like it
