a good post by zephyr's cat !

Is there anything intrinsically special about the "stories we tell ourselves" (i.e., our narratives)?

I think this is the most important question facing the modern age. I have thought long and hard about this, and I've come to the conclusion that there's some truth to solipsism. There is no such thing as a collective narrative. There are only individual narratives and perceived overlap, but I believe each narrative is unique unto the individual and the overlap is illusion.

This is the conclusion I have come to. We are entirely alone with the babble of our own minds and nothing more.

Endless dreams within dreams, the history of civilizations dust forevermore.

recaping some recent cryptography links


a good 'simple' explanation of block chains that if i was given the text would have taken me a minute to put up on the web, but goldman sachs have no doubt spent $10,000 to make it almost unreadable !

these funds can swing huge sums in seconds so i feel that cyrptocurrencies will be a dangerous playground with them, but money can be made !
good charlie rose interview

zakaj on decred


this struck me as very important, what he is saying you need to judge the teams and technology and if you do this, cryptocurrency investment will be targeted and not random !
"So, to an experienced eye that can judge where Decred should really be positioned considering the tech and the team behind it, it's easy to see it should be valued at least 10x higher than it is now."

social skills


zephyr, do not call zakaj a shill, he's posting in good faith and that's all that is asked here !
when you (zephyr) actually make some money let us know ! :o)
any more posting by you with gratuitously offensive name calling will be removed !
as with any investment advice, you make your own choices and take the consequences which can be positive or negative !

xyz, i don't think you should mention you have done well as there are nasty people scouring the web for indications of people with cryptovalue and targeting them in real life and also by hacking !

a good rule in life is if you have money is to always appear broke !

zakaj, i spent a lot of my early life in anglican/episcopalian boarding schools, i know how much crap christianity is from the inside and find your christian proselytizing here very offensive !

having seen your behavior over several years now, christianity for you is just some schizophrenic proxy, some crazy re-invention you are quite prepared to so thoughtlessly waste my time on . .

well i have to step in to protect my interests and use of time, please go away permanently !
