mircea_popescu: ...
asciilifeform: sometimes i wonder if mircea_popescu ever actually read the instruction.
asciilifeform: ( and with rum, or without )
asciilifeform: ( folx who ~did~ read it , know that it is possible to determine that a particular fg evaluates the same function on the input, for a particular string pair S1, S2 of bits, fed simultaneously into I1a, I2a, I1b, I2b, of FG a and b respectively; by syncing the oscillators , by connecting the 4th pins of a and b together.
asciilifeform: but if you to compute the particular output expected for S1, S2 in advance, you gotta specify the clock freq, and run fg.v in e.g. 'verilator' . and it takes a while. )
asciilifeform: *want to
asciilifeform: *particular pair of fg evaluates...
mircea_popescu: let's just say that this "need at least 1 bit of blackbox per tb of arbitrary input" view is, sadly, not how it works.
asciilifeform: i'ma have to make a 2nd test jig to give to mircea_popescu for his bday or sumthing, apparently.

asciilifeform: ( $subj is figure 2 of https://archive.is/CGQkR . )
asciilifeform: incidentally the 'pull out rng 'a', then 'b', then 'both', then...' test is a low-tech preventer of 'enemy intercepts parcel and reflashes the cpld to shit marsaglia prng'.
asciilifeform: but at this point almost certainly repeating ancient thread.
asciilifeform: ( exercise for advanced reader : write a substitute evil_fg.v that fools a user who limits himself to the above test. )
asciilifeform: and hah, i think i finally see what mircea_popescu's objection was. no, thing dun have to physically store every byte of 'evil' output. elementarily a sabotaged fg will behave as prng.
asciilifeform thought this was clear from context, apparently this is a sin

asciilifeform bbl
mod6: This may be removed before release. Flow still works as it previously did, just is no longer used in press.
mircea_popescu: like a debugging feature basically.
mod6: yah.
mod6: correction: flow is not used to ~feed~ press operation. still used to ensure that the HEAD is within the flow set.
mod6: this one line
mod6: death("HEAD: $press[1] not found in flow\n") if !grep /^$press[1]$/, @flow;
mod6: Going back to the issue exposed by the eucrypt mpi_fix_copy_incr vpatch, you can see now that the press path is calculated by including all of the given HEAD's antecedents recursively.

asciilifeform: petrol is superior to battery by such ridiculous margin, that it is readily affordable
ben_vulpes: folks've lofted 30hp gas quadrotors
mircea_popescu: let's get back to it. a) can i buy 10cc engine, off shelf ? b) dinamo needs coils, makes it heavy.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes yes but 30hp! not 50W.
asciilifeform opens catalogue... a 2.74cc 1.0 hp motor , weighs 280g, costs 70bux.

mircea_popescu: cheeck the shit out!
asciilifeform: picked at random, prolly there are spiffier ones
mircea_popescu: turns out i actually misunderstand the limits of materials!
asciilifeform: it's ancient tech, too
asciilifeform: ( somewhere i have a 1960s catalogue , featuring similar engines; weighed a little moar iirc )
mircea_popescu: well, a 300 gram 750 W engine totally can make a chopper fly.
mircea_popescu: in fact : 750W at 50% conversion can provide a lot of lift -- if the whole thing it's embedded in is 1kg, your energetic expenditure per meter lift is not even 10J. can do 75m/s theoretically.
asciilifeform: entirely.
ben_vulpes: related stupid human tricks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5FqYiZb_5s
asciilifeform: which is why small petrol engine enabled flight to begin with.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dunno now why i thought the limit is a degree of magnitude higher on both energy and size.
asciilifeform: to be fair , these do require nitrofuel
asciilifeform: ( it doesn't, for obvious reason, scale up )
mircea_popescu: but not a lot of it.
asciilifeform: nope. a few 100ml.
asciilifeform: for coupla hrs of flight.
mircea_popescu: oh that's what it was! the fuel weight!
mircea_popescu: see, cuz if you store a liter and something, that's almost a kg.
mircea_popescu: still misunderstood, but at least now i know wtf i was thinking.
asciilifeform: depending on what the objective is, that kg can do useful work ( say you're to torch something... )
mircea_popescu: sure.
mircea_popescu: but yes, the point stands : useful limit of combustion-powered flying machine is more like 5kgs not the 50kgs i originally imagined.
asciilifeform: chopper could, theoretically, do 'pinpoint' needlework , that fixwing could not, e.g. limpet onto ~particular~ car

ben_vulpes: ah that's where the moth scent line came from
mircea_popescu: no ?
ben_vulpes: trilema generally!
mircea_popescu: aok :p
mircea_popescu: the proposal is nothing less than to have identified the exact point in history where the pantsuit forked off the chain.
asciilifeform: dunno that this is a necessary hypothesis : the shaman who demanded share of mammoth meat for 'getting crocodilegod to barf the sun back out' is item that goes back to prehistory
asciilifeform: they've prolly existed longer than scribes, or even archers , or horseman.
asciilifeform: or do i misunderstand what is supposed to have begun with the 'concordat'
mircea_popescu: notrly, no.
mircea_popescu: feudalism was 100% republic, entirely existing as relationships between people, with no regard to anything -- not to the herds of cattle, of any kind, nor to land or weirs of fishing or any other nonsense.
mircea_popescu: then the pantsuit centered in rome attempted the bitcoin cash of worms, and it's been going towards building marx's paradise -- a world devoid of any people -- ever since.
mircea_popescu: the venue through which the socialist disaster happened happens to be "reason" in a particular pantsuit reinterpretation -- the bitcoin cash of worms introduced "reasonable" basis for taxation on the basis of "land resources", and from there on this non-reason worked its poison into the whole gamut of idiocy on display today.
mircea_popescu: it shouldn't have been permitted then, as it's been methodically not permitted in this here republic since inception.
asciilifeform: this is interesting and makes sense and imho would make a spiffy trilema article ( sequel to the one from last hr, with the italian film , perhaps )
asciilifeform: which was a bit sanskrity
mircea_popescu: it's what i heard, "diaphanous, as in, if you're not familiar with the whole tree of medieval history and social theory, the jumps are a little wide".
mircea_popescu: but i dunno what to put in. ie the above three lines -- are already written. what moar!
mircea_popescu: i can't re-write a compendium of feudal history ad hoc ;/
asciilifeform prolly doomed to excavate and read the sourcetexts, like civilized people
mircea_popescu more than willing to answer q's. but unsure how to proceed without.
asciilifeform: naah the correct answ is prolly 'do yer bloody homewurk , asciilifeform '
asciilifeform: ... or here's a q. 'worms' had a beginning, neh, at some time prior. where was this beginning, who first demanded 'reasonable taxations' , where
asciilifeform: seems like a straight archaeological matter.
mircea_popescu: it was a sad vulnerable moment, incidentally. ever heard ye of hugh "magnus" (ie, le maisne in french, literally, "lesser born") ?
asciilifeform: sounds familiar
mircea_popescu: brother of sitting king of france, went on crusade BECAUSE SAW MOON ECLIPSE.
mircea_popescu: literally, that was his thought process, "o look, astronomical phenomenon ergo i buy a car now."
asciilifeform: and bush-II went on crusade because 'wmd', lel
asciilifeform: was it a cause-'because' or an astrological-justificatory-'because'
mircea_popescu: so he ends up shipwrecked in the lands of anna's father, alexios. you know the whore, anna, yes ?
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: ok. and the father takes them in hand and rapes them around discreetely, yes. you know, like us presidents are invited at banquets but "can't go there sir".
mircea_popescu: without an army, or any resources, or you know, the forethought to have at the very least packed up that eclipse for later, hugh understands the precarity of his position, and so is a great supporter of the byzantine king.
mircea_popescu: and he tries to sell this to godfrey of bouillon, who was a lord at the time. this doesn't mean "rich" or "powerful" or any pantsuit nonsense of today, trying to explain exactly why it shouldn't be the case you even try.
mircea_popescu: no, godefroy was naught else than a man. as per that shaw description, "the panache" etc.
mircea_popescu: and godefroy says, "look at you, fool, you had your own sovereign crown (hugh was an earl, at the time this was sovereign) but had to come here and became a slave for it, and now try to sell me on it as if it were some great progress ?"
mircea_popescu: to which hugh explains something like "well, what's done it's done, what can we do"

mircea_popescu: for what it's worth i see no difference whatsoever between the above eclipse of reasoning and say "if i make it what i think it should be -- it crashes".
mircea_popescu: but anyway, re taxation : item as a notion didn't even exist in 1100s. payment across hierarchy had an entirely different substance.
asciilifeform: no real diff, aside possibly from the 'linear vs superlinear' hypothesis
mircea_popescu: "taxation" is what pantsuit rendering of homage is, so as to depersonalize it.
asciilifeform: but post-worms 'resources' taxation scheme -- infectious
asciilifeform: superlinear!11
mircea_popescu: only in that it's always easier to be female than male.
mircea_popescu: that's the great advantage of the homosexual bottom : even a broomstick can fill it.

asciilifeform: that wouldn't explain why it spread suddenly, like forest fire, at a particular moment
asciilifeform: hm did we ever do 'tin pest' thread ?
mircea_popescu: i dunno anything about it was sudden.
mircea_popescu: took what, 500 years to westphalia, "nation state" ie, "the LAND is the item, people just ants on it"
mircea_popescu: but the notion of a countCY, and OF X!!!, as opposed to THE count himself is very much redolent of the rotl.
asciilifeform: other q, how far is this from the roman system
mircea_popescu: which is why republican lordship is personal whereas pantsuit notion of peerage is "location based".
mircea_popescu: which roman system.
asciilifeform: late roman.
mircea_popescu: the system which built rome is : in the winter we sit around , in the summer we go rape the idiots, take their shit, melt it down, split it in equal trophies and give one to each man.
asciilifeform: nah that'd be young rome
mircea_popescu: it's unclear altogether if late rome had a system at all ; this is a matter open to much scholarly debate.
asciilifeform: that's the q, are we looking at what amounts to a sov rtg misplaced in the arctic and sawed open by chukcha.
asciilifeform: i.e. a resurrection of the item that killed rome.
mircea_popescu: well, it was said in these logs and it's still true that rome is well summarized by observing some people built some benches in a park somewhere and spent a millenium thenceforth sorting out who should sit where on them.
asciilifeform: that'd be the elementary 'petri dish full' endgame then.
mircea_popescu: in this sense sure, original rome as the patrician class with its clientelar syste was "checked" ie infected with doom-ruin by the imbecile plebs, resulting in the creation of the plebs tribune (ironically, the ~reason~ later emperor was sacrosanct -- he was also the tribune of plebs)
