Till somliga kan man inte säga ett ord..

Kandi jobbade på tomten medan Apmel roade sig igår kväll. Och nu börjar Mount Whitney göra skäl för sitt namn.

Red Bikcin gave Apmel a tour of her exhibit The Golem @ Extropia

Redi (red.bikcin): The Golem was the first superhero of the story
Apmel Goosson: I will read up on this myth

Redi (red.bikcin): all the textures of walls and floor are mines With fractals
Redi (red.bikcin): The golem falling in love with the wife of the rabbi
Apmel Goosson: nice effects.. I like this a lot
Redi (red.bikcin): thanks Apmel

And of course the opening party with Echo mixing it was superb!

What’s the point of even going through the motions?

Apmel is obviously kind of close to Apmeljinnee and often decide to also read some of the the links he recommends. Towards the end of Scott Aaronson's after-dinner talk on the No-Cloning Theorem and the Human Condition at QCRYPT he says something that made Apmel shed a tear for all who believe that math and logic have a platonic existence all by themselves: "I don’t know if any of you are like me, and have ever gotten depressed by reflecting that all of your life experiences, all your joys and sorrows and loves and losses, every itch and flick of your finger, could in principle be encoded by a huge but finite string of bits, and therefore by a single positive integer. (Really? No one else gets depressed about that?) It’s kind of like: given that this integer has existed since before there was a universe, and will continue to exist after the universe has degenerated into a thin gruel of radiation, what’s the point of even going through the motions? You know?"
