History is yet again at a time for radicalization (sic), that’s for pretty sure seeing world events. Anarchism has ripened and has several supporters whether they call it decentralized or polycentric societies. There’s a recent, really good summary that is accidentally about a modern vision of such a line of thinking. Rawls, Nozick, Warren.
Found an article that explains the need of metamathematics and why the philosophy of mathematics are not going away any time soon even though it’s currently being naturalized in the form of category theory.
Originally for the first read I hated this article as it’s barely more than a collection of roads, a set of doors, a forest of quotes and yet they are all important issues and roads – fundamental doors of our time. It worths reading or at least skimming through. (Hungarian only, sorry.)
I wish it wasn’t on steam as I loathe the DRM service and their terms but the new game of myformerselves is out for a while now. Middens/Gingiva is quite the experience so this must worth checking out as well.
On another news I migrated from Parabola GNU/Linux-libre to GuixSD as I intended to do so at least a year ago already. Functional package management and security through mathematical validation is the future (actually the present, should be) so nix/guix is a really nice alternative to pacman/apt/etc. There are a lot of bugs encountered so far but nothing really serious, it’s working much better than I was expecting based on my first encounter with it earlier. Be sure to check the packages you would need as for example icedove was not available but I’m ok with claws for now.
I consider writing a longer post about how I think about the future and the three main scenarios possible. (Cyborgization, positive eradication and negative eradication.) See more at this thread.
Also here’s something just for fun.
