One really important occult/philosophical/functional insight I've received from the author of this piece and others like it is this: It's not "as above so below", it's "as below so above".

The universe is an act of creation, and that creation is not ordered towards some known teleology - rather, it's spontaneous, and meaning is only ascribed afterwards.

Object permanence is a myth. What we mistakenly think of as object permanence is actually a (sometimes useful) illusion generated by a mind-virus that evolved symbiotically with human cognition - in other words, a story.

Recognizing the narrative DNA of such things doesn't necessarily mean it's useful or even desirable to deconstruct them, though.

As always, if you want to invite your friends, you can do so in the settings!

Sidekiq bumped, everyone. I've got to figure out how to boost the RAM it has available so this stops happening, which I'll do when I update us to a new version.

Which, hmm. I'm behind, but I know the project forked and I'm not sure which upgrade path to take? Who can link me to a meaningful read on this subject? Was there ever a resolution?

I wrote a thing about privilege. If this resonates, I'd appreciate a share!

Yikes, sorry I boosted that super long toot into your feeds, I’m not sure what was going on with that but it was way over 500chars!

I particularly remember my year in Japan, where everyone played the gender game more aggressively even than in the US.

"Men are like this, women are like that" is just a common every day conversation, because that seems to be how gender mostly works. And I always always always changed the subject, because these cliches never really spoke to me.

Hi uh who wants to talk about gender?

I'm increasingly realizing that "I guess I don't really relate to masculinity and at most feel vaguely resentful that it's been used as a cudgel for assuming I have horrible views about others" is maybe a gender take.

I am comfortable owning 'cismale but not an asshole', after years of struggling to reconcile it, but have been thinking lately if I were 15 today I might go for nonbinary?

I posted some thoughts to birdsite about the spirit world. I’d love to hear your thoughts here if you find this interesting: twitter.com/mykola/status/1087

Hi weirdos! It’s my birthday today, I’m 36! No exciting plans, Hannah is traveling and work is unusually busy so we’ll celebrate in a couple of weeks.

I just wanted to say: I’m incredibly grateful for all of you, for trusting me to create this space that you’re all imbuing with so much meaning.

This coming year I want to focus on giving more to my community - here and elsewhere.

Cheers, and thanks for keeping weirder earth weird!

any of you play FFXIV? I'm considering trying to get back into it...

Happy new year, weirder earthlings - thanks for being here, and here's to a great 2019 for everyone but the nazis!

The way a surprisingly good/interesting interaction can immediately pull you out of a depressed, despairing slump by letting you feel seen.

The way the opposite also holds true.
