I realized today that I never fully appreciated Pride in years past. I knew it was important to the queers and I support the queers so I supported Pride - but I couldn't feel it.
This year I finally learned to see how shame has informed and corrupted almost every part of my life. I've become public and vocal about my shame and my struggles, and that spell has been broken for me a bit.
Pride is a celebration of exactly that, for queers.
I'm humbled and awed by you all.
Submitted for your consideration:
Hi friends! I've been feeling this way for a while but was holding out to see if this changed - but it kinda hasn't. I just don't use this space very much, and I feel weird being responsible for maintaining it but not using it.
Is there anyone in the w.e. community that would be interested in talking about taking over IT functions? I'd still be around, even still pay for hosting. But y'all need a more attentive admin.
Hi friends! I've not been around too much lately, sorry about that - but I wanted to share a twitter thread I wrote about autism that's going a little bit viral. This is all the stuff I wish I had known when I was a kid - learning it saved me, and if it helps any of you I'll be so happy.
This is still pretty buggy, but happy with my v0 of my new Cellular Automata tool.
It tracks state transitions to measure information flowing through the system. Is there a calculus of CAs? Maybe! Let's find out!

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.
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?
Hi I made earth a little weirder. Depressive neuroatypical weirdo.
A community that skews thoughtful and weird. Everyone who abides by the code of conduct is welcome, thoughtful weirdos most of all! :)
