assbot: The Last Psychiatrist: Academics Hide Drug Company Payments ... ( http://bit.ly/1NI78Mn )
mircea_popescu: "If Biederman never existed, nothing would be different. You read his resume, you think, wow, he's a big player. You don't realize that if he didn't exist there would be some other person in his exact position, who would also have become a Distinguished Professor, won awards, written 450 publications, etc. The machine was already in place, his slot was going to get filled; his mind didn't discover anything, those re
mircea_popescu: sults were coming no matter what, those publications were already going to be written.
mircea_popescu: The money isn't corrupting him into thinking childhood bipolar is underdiagnosed-- he truly believes it. The reason he believes it is his entire professional existence-- his whole identity-- is predicated on believing it. He's not a scientist, he's a priest.
mircea_popescu: He starts out as a young academic. He lands a spot in a research group that studies X, so he studies X, later he branches out into X+Y, or goes to Z, etc, eventually he finds himself a niche. And he believes in that niche, he believes in his data, no matter what it says. You can't convince him he's wrong because it isn't science and it isn't even a bias-- it's identity.
mircea_popescu: That's how an entire nation of psychiatrists could have been deluded into prescribing Depakote for maintenance when the data itself says not to do it. It's belief, not money, "we believe bipolar is a kindled disorder..." Hell, if Harvard believes it, what chance do the rest of us have?"
asciilifeform: and this is not even remotely limited to pharma.
mircea_popescu: has 0 to do with pharma. where usg goes, the usg.problems go.
mircea_popescu: wherever there's two ustards, there's ustardation, aka this sort of narcisiac neurosis.
asciilifeform: btw 'bipolar as kindled [as per 1950s theory of epileptic fit origins] disease' comes entirely from one thing:
mircea_popescu: heck, the fucking "expat" group in costa rica had it./
asciilifeform: antiepileptics tend to be 1) infinitely polymorphable into patentability 2) lobotomize patient into quiescence
mircea_popescu: yes, obviously, "antiepileptics for everything" aka "everything to do with the brain will be fixed by fucking with these neurotransmitters" comes from exactly this fertile field.
mircea_popescu: and the entire "everything wrong is really wrong with the brain" ie "not criminality but imbalance" so on and so forth are only superficially an ideology matter, ie "humanism" run amok us style.
asciilifeform: but i will note the overall ~direction~ of usg psychiatry.
BingoBoingo: antiepileptics tend to work on ion channels, antipsychotics/antidepressants fuck with neurotransmitters
mircea_popescu: fundamentally, they're exactly driven by this tecxh
mircea_popescu: technological happenstance.\
asciilifeform: much the same as that of sov психушка
mircea_popescu: this discussion exactly mirrors yesterdauy's discussion about diesels.
asciilifeform: there ~were~ dopaminergics.
mircea_popescu: the "regulators" had 0 to do with it. while the refinery process poured out diesel fuel, you were gonna run diesels.
mircea_popescu: while petrochem pours out depakote, you're gonna fucking feed people depakote and stfu.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not really the case here. petrochem had equally easy time pouring out dopaminergics as it does neuroleptics
mircea_popescu: notrly.
mircea_popescu: see, the uppers risk cascading.
mircea_popescu: the downers just make people stfu and sit down.
asciilifeform: naturally
BingoBoingo: Depakote was popular because drug companies made conditions for the insurance companies to pay for it.
asciilifeform: usg would rather have a herd of depressives than manics, yes
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo but they only did that because it was accessible.
BingoBoingo: Before Depakote, it was seroquel, after depakote it was Zyprexa
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not even usg related. it is CHEAPER.
mircea_popescu: \that's the considerationb here.
asciilifeform: cheaper to manage the depressives ? certainly
asciilifeform: to make the pill? nope.
mircea_popescu: no. cheaper to make these than those. cheaper to prescribe them. cheaper to take them.
mircea_popescu: in the very lowest sense of it all. cheaper in adp terms.
BingoBoingo: Psychiatry swings in an antipsychotic-antiepileptic-antipsychotic-antiepileptic pattern for bipolar
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo these aren't different.
mircea_popescu: psychiatry is being a slut while pretending she's having amorous complications.
mircea_popescu: it still fucks the same dude every night.
asciilifeform: is PeterL around ? let's look at the synthesis for either.
BingoBoingo: Sure, but they switch around condom brands
asciilifeform: i don't see anything in the structures that would suggest a substantial difference in cost per kg.
asciilifeform: of, e.g., 'depakote' vs dextraamphetamine
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform your argument will reduce to something like "making 1950s bachelite and fuel oil is '''cheaper''' than making diesel and wd40". this is equivalent to saying "z80 is cheaper to make than pentium 3". both are incorrect.
mircea_popescu: pentium 3 is ACTUALLY cheaper to make than z80 ever was.
asciilifeform: z80 is absolutely cheaper.
mircea_popescu: not so.
mircea_popescu: "absolutely" is a meaningless term. yes, you think it exists. good for you.
asciilifeform: unless one goes 'but no one is tooled for it'
mircea_popescu: but outside of your pinning it down, it does not exist.
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: it's not that "no one is tooled for it". it's that theyre not TOOLABLE for it. and if they WERE, it'd be expensive.
mircea_popescu: consider home cooking. it is ABSOLUTELY the cheapest way to feed a fambly.
mircea_popescu: except, not.
mircea_popescu: there isn't this "absolutely" .
deedbot-: [Trilema] Chez Cocus, or the Argentinian Chorus - http://trilema.com/2015/chez-cocus-or-the-argentinian-chorus/
mircea_popescu: in the world where women cook as a matter of course, cooking is MORE EXPENSIVE than in the world where cooking would be "absolutely" less expensive but women would kill themselves if you allowed them in a kitchen
mircea_popescu: does this coallesce into sense on your side ?
mircea_popescu: speaking of nothing related, anyone recall the original patrick naughton trial ? compuserve exec, flew to La to meet a 40yo FBI agent that had been posing as a 13 yo girl in a dads&daughers sex chatroom. hung jury : all women voted to convict ; all men voted he;s innocent.
asciilifeform: hung != acquit
mircea_popescu: somehow THAT gender gap doesn't figure too prominently in "feminist" discourse today
mircea_popescu: but i think it informs, subconsciously, ALL of it.
asciilifeform: re: previous thread: i get the hypothesis, but it falls apart re: z80 specifically. as it is... still made. and is about $5 in qty.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform iirc he went to work as an exeprty in fucking teens for the fbi afterwards.
mircea_popescu: so yes, it did.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform $5 does not describe the price.
mircea_popescu: see my bottles of wine. also $5. or, less.
mircea_popescu: pentium costs $0.
asciilifeform: wai wut

assbot: Chez Cocus, or the Argentinian Chorus on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1PhCREx )
asciilifeform: in the sense of go-dig-up-from-the-skip ?
asciilifeform: yes, $0
mircea_popescu: in the sense of, "put on provision slip, sign, costs nothing"
mircea_popescu: go, put z80 on the list.
asciilifeform: how does it 'cost nothing' ?
asciilifeform: pray to god, he drops a pallet down ?
mircea_popescu: suppose you're in soviet russia.
mircea_popescu: if you want a Tatra truck, ask for it.
mircea_popescu: if you want a general motors truck ?
mircea_popescu: your wife's cunt costs 0. teen poon costs... how much does it cost ? as alf says "might as well me from mars."
mircea_popescu: what company you ever heard of had a debate over "windows licensing costs" ?
asciilifeform: this is handy for the present day but does not explain how the pieces on the board got to where they are
mircea_popescu: "hey, maybe we should use linux, it's cheaper". sure, as a red herring for "red hat", which is not linux.
mircea_popescu: well, they got to where they are through a succession of present days.
mircea_popescu: you familiar with the mathematical sleigh of hand called "induction" rite.
asciilifeform: incidentally, for the two kinds of dope picked for this comparison, the packaging and distribution costs dwarf the actual cost of producing the pill
mircea_popescu: i show today and tomorrow and i won.
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: which is why we strictly ignore it.
asciilifeform: so what was cheaper on day 0 ?
mircea_popescu: a club.
mircea_popescu: you familiar with this, yes ? the romans kept going "why would someone farm when he could heroicly steal women and shit ?!?!?!"
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: so then.
mircea_popescu: the fundamental problem of reality is that for things to work, things don't actually have to work.
asciilifeform: except where they do.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3326 @ 0.00047798 = 1.5898 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: which is just another restatement of "people are insane" which is pretty much the oldest observation in the book that everyone keeps restating self-importantly and lo, it's voltaire! it's nietsche! it's existentialism! it's your grandmother vigin! etgc
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they never do. that's the problem. by the time the war is lost, the people who lost it are dead. that's the thing.
mircea_popescu: yes the people that won won. but this means nothing in context.
mircea_popescu: ofcourse they were gonna win etc.
asciilifeform is palpably confused
mircea_popescu: look, let's go at it this way. in your own private experience, as a witness, how many times did a horde of idiots on some idiot forum know better than me ?
mircea_popescu: i'm still here, they as individuals are not. but they as group are still here. perhaps to outlast me.
asciilifeform: as per the 'infinite hitpoints' article from mircea_popescu's www, aha
mircea_popescu: the idiot can not lose, because by the time he's lost he's gone. where's the neobee schmuck ?
mircea_popescu: not around, that;s where.
asciilifeform: or my personal favourite 'cockroaches will inherit the earth'
mircea_popescu: so in this sense, there is no "unless it does". yes, they'll die.
mircea_popescu: they'll die anyway.
mircea_popescu: things are only meaningful to those capable to perceive meaning, and this ALREADY means not-them.
mircea_popescu: in aother formulation.
mircea_popescu: if multiverse, and if in ALL possible verses picking a on X quesdtion results in annihilation, this means exactly nothing. the a pickers aren't in any way different from the non-a pickers.
mircea_popescu: "oh, the end of their world is visible from our world". a) no, it isn't ; b) so ?
mircea_popescu: in a very amusing (to me) twist, this is actually in the fucking patristics (the wanna-be mishnah of xtianity). "your reward be not of this world" etc.
asciilifeform: i thought that was a standard 'jam tomorrow'
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24100 @ 0.00047798 = 11.5193 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: so you did.
mircea_popescu: but if there's one criticism that can not be put at the feet of the scholasticis, it is superficiality.
mircea_popescu: it's a very plain statement that dunning-kruger, and consequently, the reward for being not an idiot is not accessible in idiot terms.
asciilifeform: this - yes.
mircea_popescu: this for some reason has to be stated.
asciilifeform: hell, this was even in (pre-braindamage) paul graham
asciilifeform: in his 'blub' article.
mircea_popescu: generally it is a common mark of middling sanity.
asciilifeform: http://www.paulgraham.com/avg.html << it.
assbot: Beating the Averages ... ( http://bit.ly/1LbsH4p )
mircea_popescu: but back to our point of interest : your expectation that "z80" and "pentium" costs can be meaningfully compared breaks down.
mircea_popescu: when they can be compared, z80 loses. where they be meaningfully compared, common ground breaks down.
mircea_popescu: so - efficient markets, yes. but only if markets. and there's no guarantee everything you imagine can be a market.
mircea_popescu: this is trivially understood either through geometry or high physics. there are fewer things than you can write equations for.
asciilifeform: recall the crashing flashlight ?
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: and yes, cost is not a scalar. but as someone who actually buys things i am led to partially differentiate. i.e. if i personally need max cpu ~quantity~ for my personal bag of money, i will be buying z80.
mircea_popescu: and if you want maximum sploodge for your penis you buy brunettes.
mircea_popescu: what of it ?
mircea_popescu: art is art.

mircea_popescu: it turns out that this is not true : "commodified market" actually means that there is no market - you can either not have a server and think you don't have a server ; or else not have a server and think you have a server. those two, no third and sure as fuck no having servers.

ascii_field: dunno how much sense this will make to a nonplayer
ascii_field: my point was that we do not want to be in the position of answering the enemy in real time.
ascii_field: and on his terms.
jurov: well, then we can end with turdball like gcc (due to rms' political reasons discussed here recently)
ascii_field: we already have the turdball
ascii_field: ftr, i do not believe that it has a long-term future.
ascii_field: recall why i asked nubbins` for the book!

mircea_popescu: o hey not bad, guy gets to go to costa rica hang out with the other lamers on "what's left after divorce" budget
BingoBoingo: Seriously
mircea_popescu: in any case, i see little value in the political thinking proposed. im not even sure it's all that political.
mircea_popescu: but the way which, whether it delegitimizes anything or not, nevertheless serves bitcoin, to do the switch, is by making sure that the proposed solution actually is a good solution for the proposed problem. there's a lengthy history of narrow, poorly tho9ught out, unreviewed and borderline nonsensical "solutions" that had to be reforged and then re-reforged, even 3-4-5 passes.
mircea_popescu: so in that sense... if there's a superclass fix, and we find it, good. if not, entrenching around this seems a waste of time.
