The third possibility is the one that really intrigues me. A 2011 study found that a single dose of psilocybin could permanently increase the personality dimension of Openness To Experience. I’m emphasizing that because personality is otherwise pretty stable after adulthood; nothing should be able to do this. But magic mushrooms apparently have this effect, and not subtly either; participants who had a mystical experience on psilocybin had Openness increase up to half a standard deviation compared to placebo, and the change was stable sixteen months later. This is really scary. I mean, I like Openness To Experience, but something that can produce large, permanent personality changes is so far beyond anything else we have in psychiatry that it’s kind of terrifying.

The third possibility is the one that really intrigues me. A 2011 study found that a single dose of psilocybin could permanently increase the personality dimension of Openness To Experience.

And that’s one dose. These researchers were taking psychedelics pretty constantly for years, and probably experimented with the sort of doses you couldn’t get away with giving research subjects. What would you expect to happen to their Openness To Experience? How many standard deviations do you think it went up?

It seems possible to me that psychedelics have a direct pharmacological effect on personality that causes people to be more open to unusual ideas. I know this is going against most of the latest research, which says psychedelics have no long-term negative mental health effects and do not cause psychosis. But there’s a difference between being schizophrenic, and being the sort of guy who is still a leading neuroanatomist but also writes books about the geometric relationships between consciousness and the space-time continuum.___

"So it's no surprise to learn that every year, Call of Duty players collectively log some 475,000 years of gameplay. Add it up, and over the course of their six-year history, Activision's 21st-century-themed combat simulations have cost us 2.85 million man-years — more than 14 times longer than humanity has existed."

Forensics might be crap?

University of Virginia law professor Brandon L. Garrett, who has been studying DNA exonerations and wrongful convictions for years now, had this to say in an email: “When I looked at forensics in DNA exoneree trials, I found more often than not that the testimony was unscientific and flawed. We know that whenever we look at old criminal cases we see flawed forensics wherever we look. And yet hardly any crime labs have bothered to conduct audits. Nor is the problem limited to bad hair cases—much the same type of eyeballed comparison is done on bite marks, ballistics, fibers, and even fingerprints.”

Capitalism and Communism which briefly resembled victor and vanquished, increasingly look more like Thelma and Louise; a tragic couple sent over the edge by forces beyond their control. What comes next is anyone’s guess and the world hangs in the balance.

There has been concern that fracking and extraction of coal seam gas could cause gas to migrate through the rock. Not only is it polluting the river and air, but methane is an extremely potent heat trapping gas. Fugitive emissions from the unconventional gas industry could be a major contributor to climate change and make gas as dirty as burning coal.

Gas first started bubbling though the river shortly after the coal seam gas industry took off in the Chinchilla area. Since then the volume of gas bubbling through the river has massively increased and has spread along the river.

You can see stakes in the river bank were the Queensland Government has marked each gas seep. You can also see pipework near the river where Origin Energy has installed for monitoring the gas bubbling through the river.

Thanks to John Jenkyn for taking me up the river in his tinnie. He's a champion!"___

And one unintended consequence (stop laughing in the back!) is that a lot of black people lose the ability to vote.

Once you've done your time, rights should be restored. Actually, even prisoners should be allowed to vote really; what's the justification for not allowing them to?

+Yonatan Zunger​ doesn't think this is a sign that stuff is about to go tits-up, but I'm not so sure. If people actually invest in them, we're in big trouble.

Back in the late 90's / early 00's, +Matt Bell made a t-shirt for "genericdotcom.com" — "We're the people that make those things that do that stuff." It was a perfect parody of all the weird companies that were showing up around the later stages of the dot-com boom, with increasingly vague goals and nonsensical business plans.

This startup feels sort of like a blast from the past. It's not something to take as a sign of a bubble, because it seems to be primarily funded by its CEO, a Yale sophomore who is the son of a wealthy venture capitalist. Which is to say, this is simple nepotism, not a case of anyone actually investing their money in this.

But what's absolutely marvelous is that the reporter, after reading through their paperwork, contacting both the company and several members of its "brain trust," and doing various other bits of investigation, can get no idea whatsoever as to what this company does. It's the most extreme case of startup bullshit I've seen in years. It's almost as though someone took a blank template for a company pitch and forgot to fill it in with actual content before putting money into it.

But you'll be glad to know that "Helena is an organization of 30 global influencers who work together to achieve positive global impact. The group collaborates to create breakthrough ideas, then leverages its collective reach, strategic partnerships, and network to make them happen.

No word yet on whether you get fries with that.

But that’s not going to happen. Left and right are dead. Go home old man!

The next great movement isn’t a top down system of political and economic organisation. It is barely recognisable as an ideology.

Instead, the next great movement is a decentralised, almost instinctive mass rejection of ideology, hierarchy, elite power in all its forms.

It is characterised by the rejection of paternalistic domination in our private lives; censorship, IP, drugs, and the regulation of bodies and genitals and the bedroom.
It is equally unimpressed by pre-existing economic organisation; careers, unionisation, utilities, monopolies. We cheer as apparently fixed points of our world order crumble.

This movement is toward networked self sufficiency. It is a space of artists and artisans, an adhocracy of power tools and pop up businesses. It’s solar panels and fruit trees, ride sharing and craft beer and home made CNC machines.

It’s Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, but only as proxies for a mighty Fuck You to the powers that be, because really, top down government and corporate control can go get fucked.

It is an eschewing of money in favour of a sophisticated, heterogeneous, tech mediated interaction between individuals. It is organising something between friends on messenger, and no money changes hands.

It is a movement with few leaders and sacred texts. Instead it is instinctive. It is the world’s billions feeling their way into a new space of potential.

It doesn’t think in long form text; instead it thinks in pictures and symbols and memes. It is emotional.

It is heterogeneous and decentralised. It is uncounted and uncountable. There are no statistics, no colourful graphs. It’s adherents don’t share a language or an ideology, and aren’t really adherents after all.

It is the slow shaking off of tyranny.

It is invisible to the previous order. If neoliberalism is the ideology without a name, then the new movement is almost entirely without form. The current elites watch their ideas stall, the numbers turn bad, and no evidence of an alternative appears in their metrics. But I think they know in their guts that something is up.

Something is up, fuckers.___

Ideology is dead.

Here's a great article describing what neoliberalism is, its problems, and its modern failure. At the end of the article, the author bemoans the failure of the left to bring forth an ideological replacement for it.

But that's not going to happen. Left and right are dead. Go home old man!

The next great movement isn't a top down system of political and economic organisation. It is barely recognisable as an ideology.

Instead, the next great movement is a decentralised, almost instinctive mass rejection of ideology, hierarchy, elite power in all its forms.

It is characterised by the rejection of paternalistic domination in our private lives; censorship, IP, drugs, and the regulation of bodies and genitals and the bedroom.

It is equally unimpressed by preexisting economic organisation; careers, unionisation,... more »

The next great movement isn't a top down system of political and economic organisation. It is barely recognisable as an ideology.

Instead, the next great movement is a decentralised, almost instinctive mass rejection of ideology, hierarchy, elite power in all its forms.

It is characterised by the rejection of paternalistic domination in our private lives; censorship, IP, drugs, and the regulation of bodies and genitals and the bedroom.

It is equally unimpressed by preexisting economic organisation; careers, unionisation, utilities, monopolies. We cheer as apparently fixed points of our world order crumble.

This movement is toward networked self sufficiency. It is a space of artists and artisans, an adhocracy of power tools and pop up businesses. It's solar panels and fruit trees, ride sharing and craft beer and home made CNC machines.

It's Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, but only as proxys for a mighty Fuck You to the powers that be, because really, top down government and corporate control can go get fucked.

It is an eshewing of money in favour of a sophisticated heterogeneous tech mediated interaction between individuals. It is organising something between friends on messenger, and no money changes hands.

It is a movement with few leaders and sacred texts. Instead it is instinctive. It is the world's billions feeling their way into a new space of potential.

It doesn't think in long form text; instead it thinks in pictures and symbols and memes. It is emotional.

It is heterogeneous and decentralised. It is uncounted and uncountable. There are no statistics, no colourful graphs. It's adherents don't share a language or an ideology, and aren't really adherents after all.

It is the slow shaking off of tyranny.

It is invisible to the previous order. If neoliberalism is the ideology without a name, then the new movement is almost entirely without form. The current elites watch their ideas stall, the numbers turn bad, and no evidence of an alternative appears in their metrics. But I think they know in their guts that something is up.

Something is up, fuckers.___
