: Logged on 2018-04-16 14:46 mircea_popescu: buildings, however, are a very opposite attempt : the dismal resistance of air (and see also un prophete discussion of winds here) and the minimal and well
understood constraint of gravity
allow enough free space for design to be a thing.
: anyway, as to the substantive matter, it's pretty well
established by now that gravity
, if indeed mediated, is not mediated by something that readily assumes a wave form.

-thrown brick can fly in the face of gravity
for a while.

extractor that guys like asciilifeform need. it can even be done from laptop on beach!

: this is referred to as 'breaking out of gravity well
: There is a rabbit hole, or mebbe gravity well
to fall into
: i notice a tendency among #b-a folks to dwell on 'convince folks to leave gravity well
, guess what, i was convinced 15+ yrs ago, before ever met you lot. and fat lot of good it did
: Fartse - The World's Premiere Gravity Well
: but otherwise a nearly obvious description of what a gravity well
: the reason you find it so hard to escape the gravity well
is in no small part due to the fact that you;ve spent many decades making the wrong decisions and they're a bitch to undo.
: trinque: escape from gravity well
is the most personal matter imaginable
: asciilifeform: I'd think there's enough talent right here to escape a gravity well
: "When deep in nitty gritty of development you sometimes forget quite how world-altering the technology you’re creating is, which is probably just as well
since the gravity
of the matter at hand would be continually distracting. "
: if I ever make it out of the gravity well
I'd love to get an actual education.
: It's mostly just a mind fuck documenting the behavior of a gravity well
from a non-astronomical perspective.
: however, it might be adaptive to have a touch of it; would I keep working towards escaping the gravity well
if I wasn't certain I can accomplish it?
: PSA : If you're trying to escape the gravity well

: see also mircea_popescu's article 'on your way out of the gravity well
, this awaits you'

: some people don't react well
to a (perceived) collapse of fantasy of escape from gravity well
: but it's kind of an estes scale thing, and i want a giant tower of hydrocarbons atop which to ride out of this gravity well
: i will answer the secret question which i can answer. 1) i personally can't pay rent with btc without giving up every other one to usg. 2) cost of extrication from gravity well
is inconceivably high. 3) no one crowned me hero to begin with, why even ask.
: jurov: recall my gravity well
analogy. one gram of rocket fuel gets you nowhere nearer to escaping, e.g., earth or moon. a hundred tonnes - does. the gram brings you nearer to blowing out from the well
only in the sense that it's one gram less that you must collect.
: deep inside the gravity well
, probably not getting out alive; but will carry out project no. 1 and hopefully no. 2 as well
before obola calls my name.
: never been stuck in a gravity well
, but i find escape from most anything hinges on ability to recognize and part with things that aren't needed. escape based on what one'd rather keep/is fond of mostly consists of waiting afaik.
: basic mechanics of escape from a gravity well
- and of escape from a country - are very similar, i dare say. you need sufficient energy (usually in the form of hard currency, but can be some unusual substitute like familial, mob, or military 'in
: Kushed, just because they're from a different place doesn't mean they're not affected by polarity / gravity
and yin&yang as well
: i have to, after all, concede that folks who have escaped from gravity well
, while i sit in, are more clever than i
: best advice for folks not yet parked in the gravity well
is 'stay the hell out'
: MaxCoin’s mining difficulty will be retargeted using the kimoto gravity well
algorithm. Recently, the Dogecoin developers have been thinking of retargeting this way as well
: sane minds applied to the same real problem yield similar results. german cars sort-of look like american cars for the reason that... well
