I have watched these videos too many times to even count them I think they are brilliant. So I am making a thread about them. Can I get the opinion of our resident russian here what he (or she) thinks of the vids?

>There are theories that druids (at least Britain ones) were originally from pre-celtic cultures, and their tradition just remained when Celts come to islands.

If we are talking about written sources, sure. I'm sure by now archaeology separated artefacts and remains tied to druidic religious practices.

Reality - the most important subject Bernd 02/28/2019 (Thu) 09:48:13 [Preview] No. 23481 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Below you will find the extraction from the book of David Deutsch, "The fabric of Reality", which feels very appealing to my taste. What do you think about our ability to comprehend Reality in general, or about the book, if you've read it?

Now I return to the question I posed in the previous chapter, namely whether, if we had only a virtual-reality rendering based on the wrong laws of physics to learn from, we should expect to learn the wrong laws. The first thing to stress is that we *do* have only virtual reality based on the wrong laws to learn from! As I have said, all our external experiences are of virtual reality, generated by our own brains. And since our concepts and theories (whether inborn or learned) are never perfect, all our renderings are indeed inaccurate. That is to say, they give us the experience of an environment that is significantly different from the environment that we are really in. Mirages and other optical illusions are examples of this. Another is that we experience the Earth to be at rest beneath our feet, despite its rapid and complex motion in reality. Another is that we experience a single universe, and a single instance of our own conscious selves at a time, while in reality there are many. But these inaccurate and misleading experiences provide no argument against scientific reasoning. On the contrary, such deficiencies are its very starting-point.

Not really, because they are not what I actually think or believe. It's my brain trolling myself because it knows that I don't believe it and it knows it bothers me, that's also why it makes connections between things I like and hate, it knows it bothers me so if I do something good one day and something bad happens or I think or hear about something bad my brain will try to connect the two to frustrate me.

It's probably better in the long run to just let it happen, I should be finding a way to fight the OCD not play along with it.

No, it's environmental. Last year I would not have even said I had OCD but just that I had some OCD like tendencies, then my living situation changed and stress came with that which triggered this and it can rapidly escalate. It tends to snowball, if you tell yourself that you tapped another key while logging in to the computer so you have to restart the computer then you will restart every time you do that from now on but on top of that if you do anything else while logging in you will add that to the list of things that you need to restart for, it's a slippery slope. But as I said, it's caused or exacerbated by my living conditions so once I find a new house it should get better.

From an evolutionary perspective it does as well, usually stress would entail danger so OCD like traits might really have helped our ancestors survive in situations like that.

Apparently it's linked to Neurogenesis as well, well that depression and schizophrenia. Stress can create chemicals that decrease the natural rate of Neurogenesis and it's been seen that SSRIs actually promote Neurogenesis and that if you give a patient(I think a patient but it might have been a mouse study) SSRIs yet at the same time you inhibit Neurogenesis then it does not cure depression, so it may be that is what causes it. Exercise also promotes Neurogenesis.

as I can see it there is 3 explanations all can be valid.

vaccines causing damage to our brains. all these various heavy metals, plastics, animal hormones etc which damage the brain. autism rates have skyrrocketed for example.

stress which is just the bodys inability to produce enough energy. I myself can relate to this, I get mild ocd when life gets too hard. I used to look at it from a mostly metabolic viewpoint but I think the psykodynamic angle is the most important.

psycodynamic conflicts which are unresolved. which then cause disease. the usual theory what causes cancer is a load of bs to me, just like most things are a lie in the world today.

interesting article about serotonin and stress (brain energy)

I'm not happy of the results. Now the house smells like shit and the meat will be given to the dogs.
Good thing is, when going to the meatshop to buy steaks (because the thing that was boiling got its water evaporated), my complete overboard thinking on the ruined meal allowed me to talk to a nice looking girl.
But still, the meat is completely ruined. My mother was supposed to eat that.

I prefer to think of all such somewhat-anthropomorphic depictions as only symbolic and representational, as Lovecraft himself indicates, the octopus-dragon-squid Thing itself hardly describable with accuracy by human minds.
The bas-relief was a rough rectangle less than an inch thick and about five by six inches in area; obviously of modern origin. [...] Above these apparent hieroglyphics was a figure of evident pictorial intent, though its impressionistic execution forbade a very clear idea of its nature. It seemed to be a sort of monster, or symbol representing a monster, of a form which only a diseased fancy could conceive. If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.

The figure, which was finally passed slowly from man to man for close and careful study, was between seven and eight inches in height, and of exquisitely artistic workmanship. It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence, and squatted evilly on a rectangular block or pedestal covered with undecipherable characters. The tips of the wings touched the back edge of the block, the seat occupied the centre, whilst the long, curved claws of the doubled-up, crouching hind legs gripped the front edge and extended a quarter of the way down toward the bottom of the pedestal. The cephalopod head was bent forward, so that the ends of the facial feelers brushed the backs of huge fore paws which clasped the croucher's elevated knees.
The Thing cannot be described--there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order.
Then, bolder than the storied Cyclops, great Cthulhu slid greasily into the water and began to pursue with vast wave-raising strokes of cosmic potency.

Lovecraft writing style is very mechanical. He gives precise descriptions of everything, but fails at the emotional impressions people suffer at the sights of these unspeakable horrors. He's a prime autist.

Their tools were more crude. Well what we know about, stone tools. Large shortcoming of archaeology that only in special circumstances preserve organic remains. Certain building materials can disappear too (eg. adobe).

This sounds familiar.
Since it's not the actual work of Porshnev it's little short on actual data (for example up to the 6th page - where I am now at the moment - zoological data is frequently referred to, but it isn't really there to know what is that data), and more on opinions, but an interesting read nevertheless. Now I have a little time, but not sure if I'm gonna finish, some stuff to do before it gets dark outside.

Bernd 11/29/2020 (Sun) 19:12:05 [Preview] No.41232 del
Read some of that google translated article but haven't reached much further. Some articles about primates and how they perceive death, some observed behaviour; posting it since they are related to the early humans and their possible cannibalistic tendencies (in the article about Porshnev's work it's part of the scavenging habits of theirs).
So while it is known that primates sometimes consume deceased adolescent specimens, but it seems it depends more on circumstances. Furthermore they differentiate between the ones belong to their own group, and outsiders. And even outsiders aren't necessarily considered as a food source (the gorillas - the examples of the second article - are largely herbivores).
And one about Neanderthals and nidal and their burials, and possible burials.

The whole thing made me think if the notion that death is sleep roots in some taboo that we shouldn't eat the dead belonged to our group. "Stop my son, don't chew on grampa's toe, he is just sleeping!"

For you, and other prisoners. I presume that was the point: you won't even think about getting out if don't know you are in. And obviously Sweden implies that not everyone is a prisoner! So there are still those who can tell the difference, the jailers themselves for one.

the panopticon is a good example I think.

"the fact that the inmates cannot know when they are being watched means that they are motivated to act as though they are being watched at all times. Thus, the inmates are effectively compelled to regulate their own behaviour."

No, that's different. Knowing there is a panopticon already tells you that you are a (kind of) prisoner.

The whole idea behind prison is to give feedback to the prisoner that he was a very bad guy. Crime and punishment.
A person can be captive without being in a prison, slavery is a good example for that. And maybe I would rather use that term for what Swebernd suggested.

That depends. In Caligula, that's the main plot, me thinks.
Maybe it caters to the voyeuristic nature of people, and/or maybe movie makers exploit this curiosity.
This might be related to the gossipy nature as well. People like to know stuff about other people, and talk about these stuff. And they would gossip about everything they saw or heard, all the aspects of others' life. Sex is part of that.
And while we at life and what it covers, artists deal in the aspects of life, especially with those which involve emotion and/or desire, and a subset of this is sex.
As previous commenter above somewhere said, you can jump over those, fast forward and that's it.

>I've been sitting on this idea for a while, and I wanted to see what other people thought about it.

We know that space is constantly expanding in every direction. We also know that the universe contains reality itself, along with time and space. Then, technically, wouldn't time and space be expanding as well? If it is, then reality would be expanding infinitely along with time and space, creating alternate universes and realities in its wake.

This made sense in my autistic brain, and I just wanted to see if it made sense to anyone else.
