replacing artisanship with mass-production and automation is an inherent bad. Not industrialization mind you - the existence of a lightbulb factory isn't a moral wrong because lightbulbs aren't compatible with artistry and can't be effectively hand-produced by craftsmen. Something like wooden furniture on the other hand is art and can be hand produced, thus it is a moral obligation to support this sort of furniture creation instead of massive flatpack pressboard trash factories. Same thing with digital art - if we *can* meet our need for digital art with human labor, it's imperative that we do. Having a machine create digital art is wrong.

A few years back I went to Butte College in Northern California, a decent rural CC. Spoke with advisors about my plans to transfer to a UC for my CS degree, they gave me an academic plan which mostly consisted of science and math classes along with the other required gen ed courses. I completed all the courses for the IGETC, and was accepted to a number of schools, finally choosing UC San Diego where I was able to skip pretty much the first 2 years of undergrad. Some of the early CS courses had material I was already familiar with, though it was taught a bit more comprehensively and rigorously.

Not sure what your problem was. The transfer strategy worked for me. I'm now continuing my studies in the Master's program at UCSD to go further into AI and Bioinformatics. It's been a great experience so far, covid hysteria notwithstanding.

The trait appears in birds and thus hypothetically prior to the last common ancestor between synapsids and diapsids. Doesn't seem unlikely that some ancient salamander started overpopulating the ponds it lived by and populations that slowed reproduction once carrying capacity was nearing were more likely to survive than populations that just grew exponentially until they all died off, and we've kept that trait until today

What if consciousness is not really the brain, or the mind, but rather, consciousness is the soul.

>> No.15471526

Consciousness necessitates the existence of a metaphysical soul in some form because there's no other way to explain the interaction between the conscious mind and physical matter. The fact that a thought, something you "experience" in a metaphysical manner, can translate into direct physical action means some sort of bridge must exist between the processes of physics and the separate processes of metaphysics

Dinosaurs are so fucking gay. Does anyone actually believe they were real? """"Scientists"""" be like, "o look there is a special dinosaur with like a helmet for a head, and this bad bow has a spikey tail to swing at its foes. Oh my this boi has a long neck to eat leaves from the tops of trees".

When dinosaurs and other fossils were first starting to be discovered, there were all kinds of fraud and stupid fucked up theories, and they just kept it going so you fags feel smart. When Jurassic Park came out in the 90s velociraptors where known to be small, but after the movie they all of a sudden discovered a bunch large ones in north and south america. HOW CONVENIENT. Don't get me started on spinosaurus, and other big faggot dinosaur. Why would it "evolve" to have a heavy ass sail made of bone on its back?

Dinosaurs are fake and so is evolution. Paleontologists are just part of a pyramid scheme to train more paleontologists and collect tax money for """""""research"""""". Prove me wrong.

>> No.15471568

There’s quite a lot of evidence to prove they existed and I’m not going to explain it to you because it is a very deep and multidisciplinary answer. As unbelievable as you find dinosaurs to be real I find it equally as unbelievable that some human bloodlines have evolved to create dribbling retards such as yourself.

Given that the same people who do all the dino "science" have just been proved wrong about their "out of Africa" theory >>15471022 and given that dinosaurs are orders of magnitude further in the past, it seems very unlikely that any of the non disprovable conjectures that the "scientists" publish about dinosaurs are even remotely accurate.
Why do "scientists" hate the scientific method so much anyway? Why are they always publishing non disprovable theories and claims that has anything to do with real science?

My bullshit theory based purely on anecdotes is that autists retain neuroplasticity to a significantly later age, but normies really do lose it around 25.

>> No.15471479

It is absolute bullshit, wouldn't last 5 seconds under hard science standards. I've learned more now at almost 32 than at any other period of my life. They switch between "it is an average(of what?)" and "it is just a biology law(except the exceptions, no bully)". I find it amazing how weak conclusions can be when no math is involved nor falsifiability is considered. They merely confuse an average of prime years with an intense inability that is not even defined, and sounds more like a boomer rationalizing why he doesn't want to learn anymore but instead remain an asshole.

This is probably because normies lock into a simple 9-5 job routine that isn't particularly challenging. Then when they have a 5 year old child at 30, they look at their homework scream, Uggghhh MAAAAAAath!? I suck at math!!!? Ugh.

I think its true but depends on multiple factors also its not like a straight cliff. Its just 25 is where is start declining but a 28 year old will still be able to learn stuff.

Another factor is health and how much you use your brain. I've seen bright funny people turn into the most boring soulless people ever in 5 years if they work a reptitive job. But also your health matters too people who drank smoked and did drugs will begin to really feel bad habits by 30. You really just can't recover from being a piece of shit like you can at 18 eat like shit don't physically train drink smoke and you will still be fine but try doing this into your late 20's and your brain will decline rapidly along with the rest of your body

>> No.15471630

it's bullshit. a lot of people get duller as they get older because they work a boring job and become lazy and just can't be fucked learning new things any more. but if you want to, you can.

Can someone point out the flaws with this paper? I looked at the pictures and skimmed through the words, looks like Masamitsu Oshima and co made something funny. All just cope & hope?

1 get a pregnant mouse,
2 kill her,
3 steal her unborn baby,
4 cut it's head off,
5 steal it's not-yet-formed molars,
6 extract mesenchymal what-it cells from the molar and separate them from eachother,
7 grow the cells a bit in the lab so they form a clump again (undo what 6 just did)
8 acquire another mouse
9 cut him open, pull his kidney out (gently)
10 open the thin membrane surroudning the kidney forming a little pocket
11 package the clump of tooth-forming cells in a plastic tube
12 put the cump of cells and plastic tube into the mouse kidney
13 sew him and his kideny back up
14 let everything heal
15 wait about 60 days
16 get the now grow mouse tooth from the kidney
17 remove plastic tube from tooth
18 remove mouse's fully functional molar (owie)
19 let it heal over
20 cut the gum open again
21 stick that newly grown mouse tooth in the hole
22 ???
23 profit, mouse now has tooth again!!!! :)

If I had to guess the big problem with this paper is that the original source of tooth forming cells was from a mouse embryo, sadly adult humans probably don't have any of those stem cells in their jaws that we could extract and grow as shown above.

Either that or big-dentist would assassinate anyone who tried.

oh btw, source:

If you cared so much about getting into a top school then you have psychological pathologies around your attitude towards prestige/social signalling and even if you got into a top college those pathologies would follow you and you would still suffer. Focus on finding what you genuinely like since I assume you spent most of your high school doing things mostly for status and to get into a good college.

As for other people you just gotta deal with it. Retards getting in over you, psychopaths getting in over you...just fuck it all. When you get older your social circle and environment will change so much that your perspective will simply not have that much room for high school bullshit. So the pain doesn't go away but it fades with time in the sense that you get annoyed you spent so much energy on it.

In the end it's your personal capability that matters the most. No institution can give or take that away from you.
