Talos [OneShot Spoilers]

Category: Art and Photography

[May we not then say that Talos, though created as a machine or a toy, had all the essential properties of a man? He moved of his own volition. He spoke and could be spoken to, had wishes and desires. Indeed in the tale of the Argonauts, that was the cause of his downfall. If, then, a machine may have all the properties of a man, and act as a man while driven only by the ingenious plan of its cons... » Continue Reading

Glaci on Enceladus

Category: Art and Photography

A "sequel" to my other work from about a year ago at this point (God, time flies.) ____________________________________________________________________________ 41 6e 20 61 62 73 74 72 61 63 74 20 45 6e 63 65 6c 61 64 65 61 6e 20 68 65 72 6d 69 74 2c 20 49 20 61 6d 20 61 20 73 70 65 63 74 72 65 20 69 6e 20 61 20 77 6f 72 6c 64 20 6f 66 20 73 70 65 63 74 72 65 73 2e 20 45 76 65 6e 20 73 6f 2c 20 49 ... » Continue Reading

Miscellaneous Ramble.

Category: Writing and Poetry

You wake up on a plane of snow. It's uncharacteristically fluffy and dense, as though it has been falling here for generations. You look up to find a blackened daylight, devoid of the atmospheric scattering you'd associate with home. Instead, there is nothing but the dim starlight of our warm yet ever so distant nurturer and a ringed planet; its moons seeming to dance around you in a slow and meth... » Continue Reading

Is there anything you would describe as "robot-folk" music?

Category: Music

 i've been way too proper and philosophical (perhaps a bit insane) in my blog posts as of late, so taking a reprieve would do me well.  with that in mind, does anyone know of any music you'd describe as "robot-folk?" and by that, i mean uniquely mechanical and/or robotic vocals or instrumentation paired with the stripped back, minimalist styling of a lot of folk music?   i don't mean vocaloid cove... » Continue Reading

On cats.

Category: Pets and Animals

 I think cats are some of the most endearing living beings on Earth, and I know I'm not the only one who thinks that. Cats are funny, cute, affectionate, and largely independent. At the same time, however, they are chaotic, messy, disease-carrying, snarky, and uncaring.  But we love them anyway. Not in ignorance of their negative attributes, but because of them! We love responsibility and turmoil ... » Continue Reading

Few People Online Feel "Real" Anymore.

Category: Religion and Philosophy

 Anyone realize that? I feel as though, from Twitter blue check reply guys to the endless amounts of AI-voiced viral video freebooting schlock on Youtube, the internet is dead; filled with malevolent specter-like machines peddling useless if not dangerous ideas and content to crowds of millions who do not know or care to know about their world.  Note, I don't mean this in a "the liberals are botti... » Continue Reading

on Purpose.

Category: Religion and Philosophy

 The concept of purpose itself is funny. We value purpose so greatly, worship it and view it as necessary as water, food, or shelter. We identify --or rather force-- purpose into every facet of our being, as the fundamental force for reason. How come, then, purpose is so contrived?  Our purpose for being here, for learning about things, for experiencing the world... it's all constructed by our own... » Continue Reading

The Talos Principle and the Stories We Tell

Category: Games

 I've been playing a lot of The Talos Principle lately (way too much to mention, lol) and it's really opened my eyes, in a sense. It's made me question my methodology when it comes to greater issues of philosophy in a way that, while somewhat uncomfortable, is the type of uncomfortable that I like engaging with; to have my beliefs be challenged in a way not unlike an academic conference.  It's als... » Continue Reading

niko from oneshot is pretty cool

Category: Games

niko (and the game itself, in a sense) is kind of an example of how we, as humans, breathe life into the lifeless, aren't they? oneshot is a story, just like many others; niko isn't real, at least materially speaking. likewise, they can't truly converse with us. again, it's a story- words and pixels on a screen. but... that's not all it is, is it? consciously or not, we ascribe a humanity to them.... » Continue Reading

On paranoia, and my very odd relationship to it.

Category: Life

it's honestly kind of funny how much i try to be rational, yet i always feel (very irrationally) as if people are out to get me. like, somehow what i do online and what i say is always being watched or recorded; Truman Show-type behavior. thing is, i know rationally there's no way for that to occur; that, more or less, nobody cares about my existence. i've never been diagnosed with schizophrenia, ... » Continue Reading

on the false dichotomy present in online circles surrounding fiction and its relation to reality.

Category: Religion and Philosophy

(this topic kind of teeters the line between writing discussion and philosophy, but just in case i'm gonna categorize it as philosophy lol) as this is a blogging site, i feel like i can actually speak about this without it being compressed into reactionary nothing-statements. that being said... fiction and reality, while separate, are very much intertwined! by that i don't mean some odd, pseudo-sp... » Continue Reading
