mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i'll give you another mindfuck, by explaining the baez reference mentioned en passant.
asciilifeform: hm?
asciilifeform: in other nyooz, i am readying the bernsteinatronic phuctorer for blastoff.
mircea_popescu: so this schmuck is an "entrepreneur", whatever, typical socialist state constructed leech, like they have in ro ru us etc. a peter thiel (speaking of which, anyone actually recall the x.com thing ? which is how he became famous in the first place ?)
mircea_popescu: now, he's also an argentine. he was the main man of the ex-president, govt changed, he would have to be thicker than the law permits to not realise they're coming to steal his shit next.
mircea_popescu: he has had almost half a year, during which he failed to drive the 200 "automoviles de lujo" ie, upmarket consumer crap across the border into chile.
mircea_popescu: HE COULD HAVE DONE THE DEED HIMSELF. did not.
mircea_popescu: "hid them" through the process of throwing a tarp over the shit.
mircea_popescu: then "el fiscal marijuan" (i kid you not) discovered that there are "a lot more properties than previously known". ie, looked under the tarp.
asciilifeform: who the fuck 'saves' in ... cars
mircea_popescu: argentines.
mircea_popescu: this is not even a joke. they believe cars are "an investment"
mircea_popescu: they also believe "de lujo" means 60k crap from the us, fucking ford fiestas and whatnit
asciilifeform: and not museum cars...?
asciilifeform: but generic?
mircea_popescu: generic.
asciilifeform: l0l!!
mircea_popescu: about 1/3 of the country's trade defficit is rich idiots "investing"
mircea_popescu: and with a country that invests like this, famine should surprise no-one.
mircea_popescu: they readily agree with me when i say "argentina is horribly managed". they have not the fucking inklest of an idea wtf they mean,
mircea_popescu: seriously, that woman put a million dollars into cars.
mircea_popescu: and when i say she looks like a used up old whore people go "o how could you say this about la presidenta"
asciilifeform: sounds like an egypt
mircea_popescu: she's no fucking presidenta, she's an old whore from west texas. looks, ~and thinks~ like she did the trucker routes all her life
mircea_popescu: supreme accomplishment is a retirement full of cars. "luxury" cars.
asciilifeform: i dun see the famine tho, it'll be a usg/cn recreditatron
mircea_popescu: right, BECAUSE THEYRE WHITE
asciilifeform: serbs were white
mircea_popescu: no, serbs were slavic.
asciilifeform: point
mircea_popescu: you may think that's white. anglos don't. meanwhile spanish folks, fucked by the arabs into a shade barely distinct from maghreb's, white as the queen's own milk.
asciilifeform: tho slavs only blackened because there was no lizard investment in'em
mircea_popescu: it's all a mental issue.
mircea_popescu: anyway, there's no way to recreditatron this bubble. they're about 5 bn short. nobody's sp[ending 50bn to buy 40mn inept turdheads.
mircea_popescu: there'll be some famine.
asciilifeform: some. but not enough that i can walk in and buy one.
asciilifeform: they will be sold, as slavs were sold, in pallets
mircea_popescu: the problem there is still entirely mental. their reaction to famine is to further oppress young females, so you won't be able to buy one not because all she does all day is sit in a concrete jail and watch youtube vids
mircea_popescu: but because she doesn't believe there's anything else for her.
mircea_popescu: sucks old woman cock and counts herself happy.
asciilifeform: l0l!
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: anyone seen "the piano teacher" btw ?
mircea_popescu: "civilised" female imbecile, ends up so fucking dry she has to go to jackoff booth in porn store and sniff discarded cumrags.
mircea_popescu: very much argentina. "fambly!!11"
mircea_popescu: (the movie is very illustrative of old cunt poison, actually. girly buys herself a better looking dress, old woman (who she lives with!) tears it, then withstands the coming assault (which is what women do ftr), and then gets the victim to cry and then they paradoxically bond further (also what women do) and, AND, for the grand finale, the coup de grace, comments that "forgiveness comes easy BECAUSE THEY ARE HOTBLOODED.")
mircea_popescu: NOT you see, because i got you just where i want you, you stupid cow.
mircea_popescu: but because, in the naive girly's imagination, there's no difference between that FAILED act of liberation and the genuine article. she after all never succeeded.
asciilifeform: nuttery.
mircea_popescu: so she's more than happy to THINK she's a terrorist, all the more as she isn't even close.
mircea_popescu: and by this fundamental act of nominalistic equivalency, the insanity preserves itself.
mircea_popescu: a mechanism described by clinicians since close to two centuries ago, but who the hell cares amirite.
asciilifeform: the 'no difference between that FAILED act of liberation and the genuine article. she after all never succeeded' is... guess what: perl
mircea_popescu: i recall you saying.

shinohai: Hopefully something a bit more robust however.
jurov: no ennumeration of badness can ever be robust
mircea_popescu: so you mean you want web to work like email does.
mircea_popescu: i'll spend a thousand to ddos incapsula off the internet before i spend a dollar for such bullshit.
jurov: what? email behaves the same way. once you're on blacklist, servers mostly won't bother to inform you
jurov: but email blacklists you can check yourself. no such recourse with incapsula

adlai: clearly the hashcash targets are too low, somebody get bitcoin-godpapa on the phone!

adlai: graydy-algo-goo.
adlai: wot doesn't need mining, wot is the solution to the mining bug
trinque: $key Apocalyptic
deedbot: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/r/9c199327-6915-420a-a97f-1189455b8bf4/
adlai: but mining is the solution to the whence-of-trust bug
mircea_popescu: this makes no sense. wut ?
trinque: ok Apocalyptic, try again. I missed a case sensitive -> insensitive.
adlai: it's another blog post from the future, i'll shut up now. let trinqui take over.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: http://offsystem.sourceforge.net << their ancient www
diana_coman: hm, I'm not sure I fully get it, gotta read it again with a clearer head, but so far: do I read that right that you are proposing in the end to trust the machine ?
mircea_popescu: i am actually proposing to remove ability of action from people incapable of controlling such a machine.
mircea_popescu: but in principle there's no reason each lord can't run his onw P, and even war with another's.
mircea_popescu: the whole point however is for any non-lord to be as incapable of action as lobsters at the market.
mircea_popescu: rubber bads on the clippers and all.
asciilifeform: we sorta have this re bitcoin.
diana_coman: ah, that sounds better
mircea_popescu: no further governments, elections, civil or human rights or any of the jazz. got P ? shall be the whole of the law.
adlai: mircea_popescu: a comment - you mention homomorphic encryption with out qualifying part- or fully. the former exists! the latter...
asciilifeform: as i understand, this is the ancient dream of 'run program nowhere at all but everywhere'
mircea_popescu: adlai the thing needed here does not exist.
shinohai: $rated trinque
adlai: the idea being, running pnodes as seemingly innocent processes on, say, aws/gce/etc?
deedbot: shinohai rated trinque 1 at 3650630430 << Thanks for the help w/ Gentoo
mircea_popescu: the thing needed here is, "here's meaningless token X which really means 2 ; and here's meaningless token Y, which really means +, and here's meaningless token Z, which really means 2." and you respond with meaningless token K, which really is 4, and never know 2 or + or 4.
asciilifeform: this is trivial until you also want the enemy to not be able to infer which token means, e.g., '+' in reasonable effort
adlai: interesting, extending the homomorphism to the operations themselves
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i did say "and never know..."
asciilifeform: then it is called 'indistinguishable obfuscation'
deedbot: [Trilema] Introducing [P]ermanence - http://trilema.com/2016/introducing-permanence/
asciilifeform: the lulzy bit is that it is currently my day job, to test schemes for this.
mircea_popescu: not so lulzy as much as coincidental
mircea_popescu: for god teh lord doth not throw dice.
asciilifeform: now, none of said schemes work, but they are all built with braindamaged assumption
asciilifeform: namely, that proggy runs on ~singular box~
asciilifeform: rather than n-of-m net.
Apocalyptic: trinque: works now
trinque: good deal
mircea_popescu: the only important thing there really, is to offer 100% guarantee that sepukku rather than dishonor.
mircea_popescu: defined like that, the problem is (i think) significantly more tractable.
mircea_popescu: the tru braindamaged assumption is to assume everlasting life, like we're in heaven or some bs
asciilifeform: elaborate plox
mircea_popescu: the only, or at least the first guarantee P must make is that it will destroy itself before being subverted.
mircea_popescu: as long as no P can ever be captured, P makes an unbeatable army.
asciilifeform: gotta define 'subvert'
mircea_popescu: EVEN IF it's "not very useful".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform enemy extracting as much as 1 bit of non-entropy.
mircea_popescu: (this is currently the situation, ftr. all the Ps are dead)
asciilifeform: enemy can simply record the bits passively from a captured node, unless the thing is a ~physical~ fort
mircea_popescu: this recording a) should be detectable and b) should not be useful.
asciilifeform: and if he does this for n of m, whatever the magic n, you've been undetectably owned
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this then reduces to 'tamper-proof box'
adlai: the human taboo against theft does bitcoin a poor canary make.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform perhaps. i am unsure.
asciilifeform: other observation is that extant hardware is very poorly suited to self-destruct (as in permanently losing bits on demand)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform consider a simple scheme : n of m, where every $timeinterval k of m are discarded.
mircea_popescu: now enemy must gather more than k per $timeinterval units to eventually reach n.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in general, i would prefer a version where "destruct" === "abandoned by P".
mircea_popescu: (the simple scheme above lulzily reduces to... mining!)
asciilifeform: with sufficient % of sybil, enemy can reconstruct history
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform "abandoned by P" might mean "fed spurious data".
mircea_popescu: we're under no obligation to tell the truth ; merely to keep impervious track of all the lies.
asciilifeform: sure
asciilifeform: and this is sorta what happens in a bitcoinatron
asciilifeform: (chain forklets)
mircea_popescu: kinda ya
mircea_popescu: not so good tho - it's a tree.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu's scheme orthogonalizes into several separate axis
asciilifeform: one is that it is a generalization of bitcoin
mircea_popescu: maybe. does it have to ?
asciilifeform: in fact, same one i originally tried for, and was quite disappointed in bitcoin not being
asciilifeform: but the other is the 'obfuscated' thing
mircea_popescu: anyway. P-G-V-iB and we're getting somewhere.
asciilifeform: the funny part is that there is already a comical nazi version of this
asciilifeform: (urbit!)
mircea_popescu: aha. tmsr might give the clown a 2nd lease on lyf.
asciilifeform: sorta why i followed the project for as long as i did
asciilifeform: it was fundamentally the right idea but implemented with inconceivable degree of braindamage - and - at least in the last few yrs - by the Professionally Sad
mircea_popescu: for my own curiosity, does c. yarvin figure on the list of good citizens & old bolsheviks that were yehzov'd by stalinmp or notrly ?
asciilifeform: more of a sun yatsen
asciilifeform: or hm
asciilifeform: chiang kai-shek.
mircea_popescu: i always kinda liked that guy.
asciilifeform: prolly the most recent leader to boil derps
asciilifeform: in actual pots
shinohai: ;;later tell mod6 i cannot make t display a single ticket, only the whole lot. Plz advise.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: ;;later tell trinque can haz phuctor rss hookup in deedbot plox ?
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mod6: hey shinohai: should be something like this `./t.pl ticket.txt pid 18`
mod6: something might be broken in there though, im currently trying to wrap up some clean up stuff right now.
shinohai: OH ok i didn't use `pid`
mod6: so if it doens't work right, no big worries.
mod6: ah, ok.
shinohai: nah still shows them all even if i add `pid`
mod6: hrm. ok will look into it.
mod6: seems to be fixed on my side.
mod6: just hang tight, will have something for you to test here shrtly.
