BingoBoingo: Alarm's been tripped. Warning light stays lit until every Buckingham Palace occupant takes a traffic cone up the ass.
asciilifeform: ( i suppose could empty it of chix, if there were 9000 mircea_popescu's , but there's exactly 1, at least in my light cone )
asciilifeform: i always assumed that those are eternal, but simply not in my light cone
asciilifeform: ( it is conceivable that such a thing exists but wholly outside of asciilifeform's light cone, note. )
asciilifeform: to where his light cone even extended.
asciilifeform: this also would give mircea_popescu the thing he asked for, which was a litmus that'd let him reject a cycle-creating patch immediately from his light cone, before it can get into his vtron and cause headache. and that is, 'no patch may have a descendant that is also an antecedent of itself or of an earlier-blocktimed patch.'
asciilifeform: there is not a cure for this, other than to stay 'in the light cone'
asciilifeform: 'find my light cone' is an inevitable knob of gossipd.
a111: 8 results for "light cone", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=light%20cone
asciilifeform: $s light cone
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'trust cone' is subset of your light cone.
mircea_popescu: mod6 each genesis carves it's own "universe", of possible patches. asciilifeform prefers to call this universe "light cone". it could perhaps be argued that the applicable patches as shaped by your trusted keys is more properly your light cone, though might as well call it "trust cone" and be done with it
asciilifeform: light cone is what you get when you find the intersection of one particular observer's notion of 'i can see WHOLE UNIVERSE!1111' with... reality.
asciilifeform: 'light cone' is simply ALL vpatches, by ANYONE, that you know about.
mod6: so we are agreed then that things outside of the trb light-cone, get its own light-cone - a multiverse of things, yeah?
asciilifeform: though it is moar correct to think of one's 'patch light cone'
asciilifeform: for completeness, i will also mention the possibility that we (or what al can see of us in his light-cone) didn't pass his bozo filter.
ascii_field: these observations are based 'in my light cone' naturally.
