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.

It's rather about the thing we call society, which is paltry part of reality. But that was interesting indeed.

Some ideas I can think of are:
1. just keep the current hat
2. a ViKANG hat like Denmark has, or something like pic related for something more historically accurate (if it would be possible to still make out the ball even with the face part)
3. a burka, hijab or something Islam-related for the SWEDEN YES ebin memes

Today we celebrate and glorify Pedro II's overthrow in a military coup 129 years ago, marking our transformation into a banana republic. The strongman who led the coup is even in every 25 cent coin.
As typical, Temer spoke about the virtues and strength of liberal democracy even though the Braganza were more liberally democratic than the following regimes.

Precisely 55 years ago General Olímpio Mourão Filho (former Integralist intelligence agent) ordered the 4th Infantry Division to march south towards Rio de Janeiro. Forces initially loyal to the government refused to fight their brothers. The 1st Division moved from the city for a clash, but instead joined forces with them. (My father witnessed the moving columns and mentions there was talk of civil war). The 3rd Division considered fighting but gave up. Naval and aviation elements wanted to fight but the loyalist leadership did not want a standoff against the U.S. Navy which was ready to support the insurrection.
High ranking officers intended to act a few days later, but Mourão Filho was hasty. Newspapers ran articles against President Goulart. He fled to Uruguay, and even before he had left the country, the head of the Lower House had temporarily taken over the Executive. Congress then elected Chief of staff Castello Branco as President. The Democratic Revolution of 1964 (or coup, if you wish to call it so) was complete.

Bolsonaro has a glorified view of the events and ordered the Armed Forces to organize celebrations of the events. The military itself never called for anything of the kind and would rather keep quiet, it was the Presidency's initiative. After a lot of controversy and legal objections only some events were held.
Bolsonaro has been accused of attempting to rewrite history. But history is written by the winners and he happens to be the loser: vengeful oppositionists created the current image of what happened back then and Bolsonaro is a nostalgic, frustrated representative of the other side.
I could be called a 64 apologist but not from Bolsonaro's mythicized perspective.
And politically this is a stupid move and needlessly creates friction. He should change the image of the past in more subtle ways.

Bernd 03/31/2019 (Sun) 17:56:44 [Preview] No.24147 del
Newspapers have devoted several pages to tell readers what they're supposed to believe and that it was a very sad day. Other news are about how streets named after the period still exist. This is a bit hypocritical given that the 1930 military coup is politically correct and acceptable (every city has an avenue celebrating Getúlio Vargas, who also brutalized dissidents, and eminent institutions are named after him) and the 1889 coup is even celebrated as a national holiday.

Bernd 04/09/2019 (Tue) 04:53:33 [Preview] No.24621 del
Is this a one time thing or they are making it an official celebration repeated every year (not necessarily a national holiday)?

Maybe 1930 and 1889 counts as long time ago in Brasil and for many people these events are now politically neutral habbenings. I can't see how but maybe it is.

>Is this a one time thing or they are making it an official celebration repeated every year (not necessarily a national holiday)?
Given the negative repercussion and the fact that the Armed Forces themselves never asked for it, it won't happen again.

>Maybe 1930 and 1889 counts as long time ago in Brasil and for many people these events are now politically neutral habbenings. I can't see how but maybe it is.
To a large extent, yes, 1964 is still seen through emotional lens of vengefulness or nostalgia. But 1889 and 1930 are more than politically neutral, they're politically positive or mixed. Each event's remembrance depends on the propaganda of political regimes and the size of the old regime's followers after the fact.

On 1889 Pedro II had broad popular support but elites were united against him. The nation's entire symbology with aesthetics dating back to pre-colonial times was replaced with Republican symbology and the Republic was worshipped unyieldingly in public rhetoric. Monarchists were just fringe far right groups with no signifance. The new generations gradually assimilated this and came to see the Empire as a "wrong" state of affairs.

1930 has both positive and negative images. Vargas was charismatic and had a brilliant propaganda machine. On 1945 he was pushed out of power by liberal officers and civilians but politics in the next 20 years were defined by the conflict between his supporters and detractors. Both the main populist party and the main centrist elitist party were in his camp, and he was still hugely popular and managed to win the Presidency through the popular vote. At the end, facing a crisis, he left behind a pompous note ("I leave life to enter history") and killed himself, making him a martyr. So a positive image of Vargas lingered on, though it's not unanimous.

1964 was initially popular and had its own propaganda, but the regime began to lose support. Most importantly, despite censorship oppositionists slowly expanded their presence in the intelligentsia. The government itself didn't notice or didn't act on this, and one general working in the intelligence service had a "boiling pot" theory that opposition sentiment should be allowed to vent out through peaceful means so it doesn't grow explosive. So now the intelligentsia overwhelmingly hates the military and in the new democratic political climate only fringe elements like one unknown Rio de Janeiro alderman with a military background defend the regime.

In Kashira snow depth was 19 cm!

The last Sunday, April 14, south of Moscow in the Tula, Kaluga and Ryazan regions, the maximum temperature did not exceed +1°C.

It had strong sleet all day, in the south of Moscow and the north of the Tula region.

Snow cover was restored in the adjacent areas of the Smolensk, Moscow, Kaluga, Tula and Ryazan regions.

I live 100km norther (in Moscow as expected), but I've been in countryside recently and can imagine how it looks now.

Snow can lie for very long time in fields near tree line (made for windbreaking purposes) or in forest (in openings), but in other places it is hard to find 19cm thick snow I think.

It isn't hottest spring though. Few days ago I've been outside for almost 8 hours waiting for driving exam near traffic police station, it was +6C and I've feel pretty bad in the end.

Was and wasn't. And the impact still haunts us.
The problem was that in 1989-90 the people wasn't prepared to take it's own matters into it's own hands - while the thirst for democracy was there for a long time we couldn't mature for it, it was killed in 1849, 1918-20, 1947-48 - and the elite wasn't willing to give it anyway either. So they just widened the political elite with the "enrollment" of the opposition's leadership, they shared the power with them. There wasn't any revolution what could swept clear the stage of politics, where the people could build their own structure, to play their own drama. The elite is still trying to direct the country from above like back then in the communist dictatorship, and similarly creating their own stratum of cadres who are given privileges. Still forcing people to lick the arse of those above meanwhile trample the heads of those below.

For the occasional Hungarians who might browse /kc/ here's a list of movie titles which play during the regime change or about the regime change in a way. The list isn't fresh I think, just found so this post will be somewhat related to the thread.

We only had famine in the first half of the 1950s. In the previous millennia never ever, only the communism could reach this "achievement".

That particular one I saw many years ago and I don't remember. It's the type when the regime change gives the background but the movie's plot isn't about it or politics. I also think it's a comedy but more of the raunchy type. I dunno if it's available in any other language - even in subtitle form.
If you wanna watch a Hungarian movie I still recommend Kontroll, I uploaded to mega, dl link is here: >>24150 it's still alive. I placed the subs also in the zip.
But I'll look into it what could I acquire for you guys from the list, with subs at least.

Meanwhile our little /kc/ community turned two years old quietly. It all started on a rainy (or not, I don't remember) day in August 2016 - it was 7th or 8th - when KC main went down for about a week. During and after this period formed the kernel that sprouted into whatever it is today.
There were good times, not so good times, some posters went, some remained and gained some new as well. We gave birth to our own memes (while they aren't used too frequently). We saw some really good thredas, participated in serious discussions, had to move once, got slid into oblivion, lost all pictures and sought refuge on other chans when the need arose.
Here we are after two years, still going. Walking. Crawling.
