2023.05.31 10:51 Lady_Swellegant [TOMT] YouTube Series from 2019-2020
Hey everyone, I'm looking for a YouTube series from 2019-2020 or so. I'm fairly certain the name of the channel was the name of the host?
It was four friends, and one would host. He would ask questions or give scenarios to his friends, and they would answer in kind. It had a DnD vibe, but wasn't strictly ttrpg. Then, one of the friends would draw animatics or still frames of how everyone responded. Very simplistic, white black ground, black outlined bodies, only the hair would be coloured to help differentiate each person.
I think there was a falling out amongst them, and they stopped making videos but it's been knocking around in my head for a while.
Thank you in advance for your help!

2023.05.31 10:48 gummygz Help me find my perception functions!
Naturally, this isn’t a foolproof way to find type. The main purpose of this is to gather new perspectives to aid my own evaluation. I will be happy with comments that outline any impression you may have about my personality, even if you don’t point out a specific perceiving axis. Order: Si, Se, Ne, Ni
- I tended to buy the same stationery as studygram accounts and top students to help motivate myself. Seeing the stationery would remind me of these role models.
- I tend to fixate on details when focused on something I want to turn out well, such as in writing, drawing, etc.
- I tend to go to the same places to eat and listen to the same song over and over again.
- I am very aware of how sleep affects my physicality. I cannot function with anything less than 8 hours of sleep.
- Nostalgia is a foreign concept - once the moment has passed, it loses its colour and literally disappears into the abyss lol.
- I don’t compare new sensory experiences to ones I remember so I could develop a personalised meaning from it.
- I only learnt about the things I described earlier when studying functions lololol
- Experiences are always the most vivid in the moment.
- I navigate the world in a flow state – often, I may do things in the spur of the moment that weren’t planned beforehand.
- I consider aesthetics in a depersonalised manner that prioritises the concrete qualities of the object. The bread tastes like …bread.
- I tend to develop addictions easily. Phone screen time, junk food, and gacha machines. Thankfully, I haven’t ventured into other ones that you may have initially thought of.
- I am not good at fast paced high stimuli environments like working in fast food where I would have to act reflexively.
- I don’t have to experience something in order to get energised from it. I was literally in the supermarket looking at food and the thought of eating all these delicious things was enough to satisfy me so I didn’t feel compelled to buy anything.
- I tend to be caught up in my mind and miss details right in front of me. I also lose stuff easily.
- When ideating, I am comfortable starting from scratch and writing down whatever comes to mind, as long as I have a general gist of what I want to say. This doesn’t apply to talking.
- I can make unconventional connections between ideas that originate from physical stimuli. Example: Blue book with yellow font in front of me –> navy ship -> sailor’s outfit -> anime girls -> fried chicken???
- I like hearing from multiple perspectives, especially ones that I haven’t considered before, to help me arrive at “the truth of the matter”, which is what I am doing here.
- I get feedback that I am very open minded, willing to listen to perspectives that are so different to my own and finding their merits and valid points even if I disagree.
- I tend to get annoyed when people get off topic if I become invested in a particular idea and want to discuss it in further depth.
- I may forget to look outside the box at times and reframe my outlook when I become so focused on one possibility.
- Stereotypical, but I don’t see the humour in puns. Even when I understand the logic behind them, they aren’t funny.
- If this is an indicator, I’m the most scared of explaining this function lololol.
- I’ve always been good with interpreting the underlying message of a literary text and framing it in the context of its overarching themes. I want to peer deeper and deeper, often never satisfied with the level I already have.
- In terms of my “predictions,” I just knew that Covid would be a big thing back in early January of 2020. I didn’t have any reasoning for it but I was compelled by a sense of inner knowing.
- I am a visual thinker who views concepts with images in my mind. It’s automatic. Though, this could just as well be Ti.
- I perceive time with a present first mentality. The past has disappeared into the abyss and I create vague image impressions of my ideal future.
- I tend to consider myself as a bit thoughtless and random. When I play games, I tend to rely on luck rather than strategy.
- I often abandon long term goals for hedonistic pleasures

2023.05.31 09:53 ayanamidreamsequence “Phone Calls” and “The Grub” May 2023 ‘Last Evenings on Earth’ monthly story read
So for whatever reason, I had it in my head that we were only doing one story this month - “Phone Calls”. So I had listed that at the end of last month’s read, and read it this morning. But then I realised when I checked the schedule that this was one of our double months. So apologies in case anyone was reading along and didn’t get to the second yet - but they are both reasonably short anyway (which I think is why I doubled them up).
We are nearing the halfway point of the year (and thus the read). I have led each week so far, but if anyone else wants to take a crack at one of the stories just say so. Am sure just reading my posts all the time gets a bit boring. “Phone Calls”
This story reminded me of the last one we read in April. I suspect it is because we are again dealing with the same narrator (‘B’) and we also get other characters in the story represented only by letters. So on a superficial level it might just be that. But there is also something in the plotting, and the character travelling around the country and making those odd calls that act as a call back to that story. They were both originally published in Llamadas Telefónicas
in 1997 - so they may have been written together, which perhaps accounts for those similarities.
Interestingly that collection is named after this story - which at first may seem an odd choice, given how brief and minor this story feels (particularly in relation to others in the collection). Worth noting that the collection Last Evenings on Earth
is titled after a story in it that was actually published in Putas Asesinas
in 2001. The English collection here, and the next published (The Return
) draws together stories from both of these Spanish collections (incidentally the story “The Return” is also from Putas Asesinas
). I suppose one thing I will reflect on is that the name Llamadas Telefónicas
maybe have less to do with the importance of this story and more to do with the fact that phone calls tend to play an important role across many of Bolano’s works - stories and novels.
So as you can tell from the above, I don’t exactly rate this story. Given how brief it is, it does a decent job of pulling us along through the circumstances. But it is a bit too on the nose, and wraps up a bit too cleanly for me. It feels like a sketch that might have made it into a novel (and perhaps it did in some sort of amended form, though I can’t think of it). But I can’t help feeling this one is a little too unfinished.
That isn’t to say there weren’t elements I enjoyed - we get moving very quickly in the first paragraph - the story kicks of will B in love (admittedly “unhappily”), and then broken up with, and then years going by. Out of the blue, “when he has nothing to do” (67) he calls X - an odd choice, and I can’t decide if this is just Bolano being a bit lazy with the set-up or if this just adds to the surreal quality of it all. They rekindle a relationship, but it is again bittersweet - “his attentions are loving and diligent, but awkward too. They mimic the attentions of a man who is truly in love” (68) - and B struggles to help X fight her depression. She asks him to leave and “their farewell is tender and hopeless” (68).
More phone calls then happen - B noting “I can’t stand these phone calls any more, I want to see your face when I’m talking to you” (69) which is perhaps the key to why Bolano chose this title for his Spanish-language collection. So many of Bolano’s stories, including this one, are about the difficulties of connections, or missed connections, or connections disrupted by or despite distance. Letters play a similar role in his works, though as you can imagine the act of writing is generally valued more highly than the phone call.
The odd twist on this story is that it suddenly turns into a murder mystery, with two police showing up a B’s door and informing him that X was killed. B is released, and after heading back to X’s city and meeting with her brother it is revealed that phone calls played a part in this as well - and the person making mysterious calls to X is found to be the killer.
So not sure what to make of it - it feels a bit too much like an outline for a story that has yet to be actually written, rather than the story itself. There are plenty of Bolano tropes in here - B as narrator, the phone calls themselves, his mysterious connections made and lost with X, her depression. But it left me unsatisfied on the whole.
As before, here is a link to the Big Strong Book video review
of this story - I note he doesn’t think that the ‘B’ of this story is the same ‘B’ from “A Literary Adventure” (the previous story). “The Grub”
As I said, it wasn’t until this morning that I realised I was meant to cover this story as well. I have run out of time to reread that this morning. It is a better story than the first, in my opinion - far more fleshed out. This time we deal with Arturo Bolano as the main character, and given it is 3x the length, we get a much more fleshed out picture of both the protagonist, the secondary character and the location in which it all takes place.
I can give you a bit more than this, as Ithis story has been covered before on the sub. It appears in a slightly different form in the posthumous collection Cowboy Graves
(2021), and we did a group read of that when it is published. Here are the relevant sections from the post that covered that part of the read:
>[note: this short summary was part of the main post by u/W_Wilson
>The second episode, ‘The Grub’, appeared as its own story in Last Evenings on Earth
. This story is about Belano, now in Mexico, skipping school, mostly to buy, steal, and read books and get off in cinemas. He develops a friendship with a man, ‘The Grub’, who spends his days sitting on a bench inattentively observing the public. One day The Grub has a bad fever, which Belano tends to, which The Grub repays with cash. He also gives Belano a knife and then leaves town suddenly.
>[note: these were then my comments on the post - which probably are not especially relevant as they mainly deal with the story in relation to other parts in Cowboy Graves
>Part Two - The Grub
- This was already a story in Last Evenings on Earth. I had a quick look at the afterward in Cowboy Graves, and it mentions “significant changes” (187). Side-by-side I couldn’t see them--there are differences, but given that Last Evenings on Earth was translated by Chris Andrews/these novellas were done by Natasha Wimmer, most differences seemed attributable to that.
- This part revolves around Arturo again meeting a somewhat unusual older man. We are now in Mexico City, where Artruo skips school, steals books, write and watches films.
- Violent impulses from Arturo again: “for a moment, I thought that I could have kidnapped Jacqueline” (35). We learn “the Grub was always armed”, that he has used it “many times” and Arturo becomes “obsessed” with the gun (40 - 41). He also mentioned that people from his hometown “made a living as hired killers and bodyguards” (42). Are we to believe this, or is it the active imagination of a young man? The Grub one day gives Arturo a knife, and then disappears (44 - 45), and which later turns up in The Coup section (68).
- As before, there are elements of this story that are dreamlike. Early on Arturo notes that “what happened next is hazy and at the same time sharp, hyperreal” (37). The Grub’s story of his travels, and his gun and possible violent past also add to this feeling, as does his final disappearance.
- Imitation again comes up: “he seemed like a lunatic imitating a lunatic” (39).
The full post is available here
- obviously it contains spoilers for the relevant sections of Cowboy Graves
And Big Strong Book continues to make his way through the collection with a video on this story
as well. Discussion questions
Just sticking a few of these on here:
- What did you think of these two stories - did you like one more than the other? Why if so?
- How do you feel about the collection and the read so far?
- Anything other observations on these stories, Bolano’s stories in general or the group read.

2023.05.31 09:49 ToothExcellent4094 What Are The Five Parts of a Dissertation?
| || |https://preview.redd.it/un67ffxnv53b1.jpg?width=810&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=74f0f88870f5e8615ad75e31dbf2fa6195054277 submitted by ToothExcellent4094 to u/ToothExcellent4094 [link] [comments]
In order to understand what a dissertation is and how it is structured, you first need to know the five major parts that make up a dissertation. A dissertation is a type of academic writing that is typically much longer than a typical research paper. It contains five major parts, which are the introduction, literature review, methodology, results, and conclusions. Introduction
In the introduction, the writer often provides a background on what topic they are writing about, who has done research in that area, and what is currently known. This part also generally includes a discussion of how relevant their research is. The introduction often provides background information on the topic, who has done research on it and what is currently known. It often includes an explanation of how the article will be organized and a definition of key terms. Literature Review
The literature review is where the writer reviews all of the previous literature related to their topic or project. They will analyze what other studies have been done and outline some of their main findings in order to figure out how their study stands out from previous ones. References for this section can include books, journal articles, newspaper articles, and surveys among others. The literature review is an important part of the paper and should be complete in its scope. Methodology
The methodology section of a research paper covers the key components of the study: what was done and how it was done. The methods section begins with a brief overview of the study, followed by an explanation of how the data were collected, what analyses were made, and what other sources were consulted. The discussion then moves on to describe the potential limitations of this study, as well as its strengths and shortcomings. The final paragraph of these sections is where conclusions are drawn from all that has been stated thus far. Results
In this section, the results are presented. Results are not always based on quantitative data, such as averages or percentages. They can also be qualitative, such as describing a personal experience or linking to a supporting source. This section should be organized by topic; for example, if the research paper is focused on developing an assessment of self-care practices and outcomes related to cancer patients' treatment satisfaction and quality of life (QOL), this part of the paper would include findings about cancer patients' experiences with QOL, self-care practices measuring satisfaction with treatment delivery and satisfaction with cancer care overall. Conclusion
This section summarizes the findings of the research paper and draws conclusions from them. The paper will examine how cancer patient's experiences, satisfaction with care delivery, and QOL are related to self-care practices. This study will also compare these factors in terms of patient age, gender, treatment type (medical oncology vs. surgical oncology), individual's experience with a life-threatening illness, or personal history of cancer (yes/no). Explore whether or not there is a pattern whereby the time to death has an effect on patients' levels of satisfaction and QOL.
Finally, this study will evaluate whether or not the preceding factors are related to cancer patients' self-care practices. The study found that satisfaction and QOL levels are more likely to be high in older patients, those who have had a personal history of cancer, and those who have had a life-threatening illness. Furthermore, this study found that time spent with family members and time spent as an outpatient is related to individuals' satisfaction with care delivery.
A thesis statement is a single sentence that captures the meaning of your entire piece. It is a short, clear sentence that summarizes your main argument with a specific claim. An expert assignment
help service can be so beneficial for student for getting A+ grades. A good thesis statement has all five parts and it is structured in such a way that one part comes after the other in an orderly manner.
2023.05.31 09:47 CitrusCosmos In Depth - My Top 10 Death Grips
Hello Death Grippers,
You may remember me as that one person who did an in depth album ranking and also a post outlining my top 20 tracks 2-3 months ago. Those posts have since been deleted because my opinions have changed. Anyway, I have been listening to DG for a while longer now, and after letting all the music simmer in I am going to be posting my 10 favorite songs from their discography instead of doing some convoluted, bullshit album ranking post like I’ve done before lmao.
Just a warning that my opinion will not be yours and there are some very popular and great songs I’ll be leaving out of the list. I've been meaning to make this post for a while but I really wanted to take my time and digest my opinions and feelings.
First, I’ll start off with some honorable mentions:
Spikes – This was probably my second/third favorite last time around, its still as much as an awesome banger as it was. It’s simply very accessible albeit lacking some depth.
Hacker – Crazy how this is off the top 10 now, it’s the quintessential Death Grips song and its simply perfect. There’s nothing I can say here that adds on to the widespread praise, but personally I just like some other songs more nowadays.
Anne Bonny – Absolute banger. Love the alternation between the smooth ear-candy synths and grinding dirty ones. Ride’s second verse here with absolutely unhinged vocal delivery is one of my favorite.
Eh – Not usually one of their standout songs, but I love Ride’s deadpan delivery over this hypnotizing, bubbling beat that rises and sinks with the bleak and nihilistic lyrics contrasting the chill, laid back beat. “Catch me hanging from my noose like eh” is one of the standout lyrics.
Death Grips is Online – Insane song, 90s crackhead rave type beat that starts off crystal clear but quickly devolves into warped psychedelic nonsense with bar after bar of some NOTM level cryptic lyrics. Definitely a favorite.
#10 – Lost Boys
My #10 pick is going to be Lost Boys, it’s a song that’s grown on me slowly over the immediately catchy more accessible songs on TMS like I’ve Seen Footage or Hustle Bones. Thematically, I really like this song as it gives us some much needed context for the Death Grips motif. Why their music is so unhinged and angry. “It’s such a long way down” followed by the “lost boy, lost boy, lost boy…” chant is a bleak chorus that speaks how there is no limit to how far a person can painfully descend into the marginalized of society. I love how this motif is spoken on top of this metallic scraping factory type beat. It really emphasizes how the aforementioned Lost Boys are just barely clinging onto life as they’ve lost their sanity completely. The vocal delivery may seem slurred and incohesive, but I love this artistic choice as it really adds to the warped acidic feel of the song.
#9 – Birds
Birds is a song that grew on me a ton recently, as its super inaccessible and downright strange. I still don’t have any idea what this song means but I’ve seen dozens of different interpretations. Birds is super trippy, even more so than the rest of Government Plates and I love how psychedelic it sounds from the part that goes “I got tomorrow coming” that manages to crawl back into these calming guitar riffs. This song constantly melts onto itself and feels thick and sludgy despite having its moments of clarity. The fact this song is so perplexing draws me to it, its highly unique in their discography and I think it’s a great reflection of their songwriting. The constant “I got tomorrow coming” and lyrics like “I got higher, I got fake” seem to speak on some level of meaningless in life, a theme that’s constant in their music. Regardless of its meaning, Birds has shot up to the #9 spot for me – despite having slow and almost acoustic moments, it doesn’t fail to be drug-addled musical insanity we love.
#8 - Klink
Perhaps their most political song, this is Death Grip’s rendition of a “fuck the police” anthem that every rapper seems to have in their catalogue. The Black Flag sample slowed down and stretched over literal screaming makes for this aggressive political middle finger that becomes increasingly more unhinged and violent. At verse two, Ride even threatens to put the cops “six feet deep below the street” so they “can’t never say shit again”. The repeating motif here is Ride painting the cops as ignorant and violent pigs who are just out here to fuck you over from your business, to stop you from doing what it takes to survive. It’s difficult to tell if the narrator here is the overly drug-addled, sex-craving, hyperviolent protagonist of Exmilitary and the Money Store or the real person of MC Ride who’s clawed out the underbelly of Sacramento. Either way, from the beginning disc switch intro to the 80s radio sounding outro, this is one of my all time favorites. For best results, bundle this up with the Cutthroat instrumental.
#7 - Come Up and Get Me
I previously rated this song very highly and I still love it. I love the primal animistic energy from Ride’s vocals and the general claustrophobic sense of panic in the narrative. It’s one of my favorite lyrically with standout lines like “Street or nosedive to the next life in seconds and suicide ain’t my stallion so I’m surrounded”. This song is frantically uncomfortable verse after verse of suicide ideation, with the protagonist so trapped and afraid he imagines himself “off the planet” hopefully ascending into an astral plane where he can find some semblance of peace. However, the conflict lies in that the central character is not willing to ride into the sunset killing himself as a coward as “suicide aint my stallion”. It’s one of their most schizophrenic songs that definitely stand out on NLDW. The context of this song is also further extended given how Death Grips stashed out at the Chateau Marmont to record NLDW, trapped in luxurious celebrity norms that fueled the anxiousness for this track.
#6 – Blackjack
I love the heavy violent instrumentals on this beat, and that female cybernetic voice “BLACKJACK” gives me chills every time. The narrative here of the protagonist’s criminal life being a game of blackjack is my favorite on TMS. The central character destroys lives with drugs and violence on a whim, but he’s so drawn to this life like a gambling addiction. He also doesn’t know when he’ll “bust” and lose it all like a game of Blackjack, but that thrill keeps him going as he loses any sense of remorse he has. This sense of anxiety remains present, but the protagonist remains ever bragging being so dominant in the game of “blackjack” he feels almost untouchable, but the music comes off demonic and evil as if this central character is no longer human with that warped voice filter again even more twisted this time around than it was on Lost Boys. This track reflects a monster the protagonist has become, and its reverbing earthshaking beat only adds to that level of menace. My favorite on TMS as of now.
#5 – Billy Not Really
Last time, this song barely missed the top 10. Now it’s all the way up here. The cryptic Billy Not Really is simply addicting with how near spiritual it sounds. It forgoes the usual grindy abrasive Death Grips sounds and replaces it with something almost cosmic-like, alien and otherworldly. It comes off jittery and glitched, but never scraping in sound. This track feels like a nautical journey through insights not meant for our mortal minds, as we realize the dissatisfaction of our existence. Its sound never fails to draw you in with verse after verse of what feels like a spiritual departure. Case in point, I can’t really describe properly why this is so far up the list for me, but it’s certainly not a surprise.
#4 – Artificial Death in the West
From this point on, any song is basically interchangeable. These are all what I would consider peak Death Grips. They are not only great songs but transcend past the rest of their discography. This to me is simply one of the best songs in their catalogue, its refreshingly different and almost sounds peaceful, but there remains a hanging spirit of melancholy and danger to it with Ride’s vocals almost sounding like a dark warning. This song feels post-apocalyptic with civilization that once was buried in sand dunes, it feels boundless in sound but also feels numbing as if technology has dehumanized us despite the overly sexual lyrics at times here. The synths in this song and the overall atmosphere this song creates is immaculate and it makes it in my top five for this reason. This to me is so masterful because it paints a bleak tune of how technology replaces our human fundamentals with sex being replaced with porn and any semblance of social interaction being snuffed out by the boundless endless entertainment on the internet as if it were a sea of sand.
#3 – On GP
You all saw this coming, On GP is just commonly agreed to be one of their masterpieces. Jenny Death is not one of my favorite albums nowadays, but this track is absolutely peak. The shimmering guitar riffs contrasting these morbid suicide ideations are something that not many artists can accomplish without sounding needlessly edgy or too derivative. The outro “All the nights I don't die for you. Wouldn't believe how many nights I ain't died for you” is my favorite lyric in the song. Ride is basically saying how he would have taken his life On GP (general principle) if not for loved ones. It’s so hopelessly bleak but also sorely relatable for someone like myself who’s also had mental health struggles. For an artist who’s constantly wrapped around some kind of exaggerated or muddled character, this song just feels like a cumulation and finale to their story a triumph to close out a chapter and turn the page where this honest and crystal clear version of Ride will never be seen again. This song encapsulates the pain and struggle, but also the sparkling small moments of hope we hold as humans with ups and downs in life. The masterful songwriting backed with soul-rending power chords do this song justice.
#2 – Beware
Demonic, poetic and menacing, Beware is simply something else. I was initially not a fan of the Charles Manson sample as it felt needlessly long, but its place in the narration of this song is much needed. The central character of this song transforms into something monstrous and inhuman as we progress from verse after verse of poetic imagery in lines such as “cold blood night of serpent’s breath” and “the spiral storm of flames inside the torch I raise the force I ride”. The vivid imagery of this song on a looped dark guitar beat make it impossible to not paint these world-ending horrifying images in your head as the song plays.
“Harsh winds flay mine flesh to bone In splintered skeleton I roam Wastelands with naught to call my own But the path I walk alone The hunger burns within my gut As my bones turn into dust”
This little segment is my favorite on the entire song, as it just presents itself so grotesque and disturbing but utterly beautiful at the same time. There is so much to unpack here with its Biblical references and constant theme of witchcraft and dark sorcery. But above all else, this is so fitting for Death Grips to put themselves on the map and establish they are a force to be reckoned with. While many of their songs involve loss of humanity and transition into something truly evil, none of them come off as colorful and evocative as Beware.
#1 – Up My Sleeves
Yup, my favorite DG track is up my sleeves up my sleeves up my sleeves up my sleeves up my sleeves up my sleeves up my sleeves up my sleeves. The opening sample “Doors and windows on, motions on” just perfectly opens up the anxiety riddled journey we’re about to take. We’re then greeted by this crawling unsettling chant that doesn’t get any easier to digest. The beat utilizes these insanely demented Bjork samples coming off super abrasive, feeding into a sense of shattered clarity. There’s many moments in this song worth diving into but ones that stands out is Ride stating his obituary will be blank at Broadway cemetery as a comparison to the unmarked graves of evil men, “my terracotta army disarms me, disowns me”. There’s also this moment that goes “My dead mother in my dream… blew her ashes off my jeans” – which is such a powerful statement of Ride losing his last memories of the only one he has loved. All in all, there’s so many cryptic but addicting moments in this track, painting how illogical the human mind can be while being so paranoid and subject to corruption. The instrumentation on this track is fucking insane too, it feels claustrophobic like in NLDW except this time its more beautiful but at the same time so much more utterly horrifying. The song name ‘Up My Sleeves’ is true to the motif of this song as it shifts between themes of materialism, death or existential dread. This song is my favorite because of how unconventional it is, refusing to fall into any ordinary song structure – and like a magician’s secret trick you never know the meaning of this song or how it came to be.
Wow holy shit that was a lot of typing. If you somehow stuck with me all the way to the end thank you, I bless you with 10 years of good luck and a Steroids hoodie will appear on your bedside tomorrow morning.
I am going to go to sleep now lmfao its 2am and I have class tomorrow morning but let me know your thoughts on my top 10 list. Let me know what other songs you love and why :))

| || |
I used to do a lot of watercolour portraits during high school but slowed down a lot when life got busy but still did little projects. Almost 2 years ago I had my son and cut right back, but now that he is a bit bigger, I am making a proper effort to consistently work on my skills. submitted by emiking to Watercolor [link] [comments]
It feels so good to be making things again. I didn't realise how much I need this hobby in my life. Over the last few months I've made a few things I might slowly post here. I'm hoping it'll encourage me to stick to my goals. Any tips, critique or encouragement is very welcome.
This project was light and fun since I didn't have the pressure of attempting to be photorealistic. I used a light box to trace the outlines and shadows on the reference image. After that, I refined the shapes until I was happy with it. I used liquid latex to draw the mandala pattern.
2023.05.31 07:23 VesuviusOW Is this too many mechanics to keep track of for a TCG?
Hello everyone. I'm not a professional game designedeveloper, I just make games for fun. With that said, I still try to make my games as if I was going to sell or distribute them. Currently, I'm making a TCG about mythologies from around the world. I've been thinking about what I could include to help make it stand out and feel original compared to popular games like MTG, Yugioh, pokemon, hearthstone, etc...
I have 4 types of cards in my game. In my current iteration, I need to put a total of 13 pieces of information on that card. I'm worried about a few things: will this cause information overload? How am I going to design the cards when I have to put that much info on a 2.5x3.5 piece of paper? Will this make the game impossible to balance? LONG VERSION
So here are all the details about what I have so far: Lore Concept:
In "Pantheon: Age of Myth," players find themselves immersed in a world where the pantheons of ancient gods and goddesses have converged. These powerful deities from various mythologies across cultures and eras have been drawn into a cosmic battle for supremacy.
As the mortal realm hangs in the balance, the pantheons clash, each vying to exert their influence and shape the fate of the world. Players take on the roles of the deities themselves to command their divine powers and lead their pantheon to victory.
The game takes place during the titular Age of Myth, an epoch in which the boundaries between mortal and divine realms blur. As the pantheons collide, mortal realms are transformed into battlegrounds where the gods and their champions engage in epic conflicts.
Card Types: Deity Cards
Each player starts the game with a Deity card representing their chosen pantheon or deity. Deity cards have information containing: VIGOR
(the deity's health, which all deity cards start with 5), LEVEL
(deities start at level 1 and can spend faith - the game's resource system - to level up to 3), AMOUNT OF FAITH A DEITY CAN HOLD
(at the start of your turn you gain 1 faith, if you don't spend it, you can keep it in your pool. The amount of faith you can hold can be changed via other types of card's effect.), CONSTELLATION REQUIREMENTS AND EFFECTS
(when cards are sent to the graveyard by certain conditions ie: a unit card is destroyed by exact lethal, they can be placed into the constellation pile, and when the constellation pile meets the requirements as stated on the deity card, the constellation effect happens), DIVINE FAVOR POINTS AND ABILITY
(each deity starts with a set amount of divine favor and it can be spent to activate that deity's special effect. More powerful effects have less divine favor, so it can't be used too often. Vice-versa for less powerful effects).
Unit Cards (which might get changed to champion cards):
Creature cards represent a wide range of mythical beasts, heroes, and other entities from various mythologies. They have the following information:
ATTACK - as in most TCGs this is how much damage a unit will do. However, I'm taking a bit of inspiration from Battle Spirits Saga by having the damage listed on the card only apply to damage dealt to other units. When a unit successfully attacks a deity, they do 1 damage regardless. This is why deities only start with 5 vigor
HEALTH - This represents the health of a unit, health does not regenerate each turn as it does in MTG for example. Instead, health must be tracked across turns. I understand that a concern about this approach is the amount of dice and such that would inherently be required so, I'd like feedback about this.
DEFENSE - This is like the ''armor'' for a unit. If Unit A has 4 attack and deals damage to Unit B that has 3 health and 2 defense, that 2 defense prevents 2 of the damage Unit A does, leaving Unit B with 1 health. /\
These 2 stats I know aren't traditional TCG stats but as I said, I wanted to see if I could make this game stand out while still being "good" or "fun" so feedback on this would be great!
Spell/Magic Resistance: Same idea except instead of unit damage, this prevents damage from spells (called glyphs in this game) that a player casts.
DAMAGE TYPE -
There are 3 damage types: Physical, Ranged, Spellcaster. The damage type actually doesn't matter for combat purposes rather, some cards might have an effect that does (ie: give a ranged Unit +1 defense)
Again, not important for combat but like with damage type, it can interact with other effects (ie: Your beasts have +1 attack)
CONSTELLATION CONDITION -
The condition that must be met for the card to be placed into the constellation pile (ie: if this unit took exact lethal damage, you may place it into your constellation pile) this is separate from the card's effect.
RELIC CARDS -
These cards are similar to artifact cards in MTG. They give various effects. Not too much to say as they honestly don't function much differently.
GLYPH CARDS -
These act as the spell/magic cards of the game, and do various things. Most of them can only be played on your turn but, some of them can be played on an opponent's turn if a certain condition is met (similar to secrets in Hearthstone).
CARD COLORS/ARCHETYPES: Like in MTG, cards are broken into 5 different colors representing different primary playstyles. You can only use colors in your deck that align with the colors on your deity card. So, if your deity card is Blue/Purple, you cannot have white cards in your deck. The colors are as follows:
- Red (Destruction): Represents brute force, chaos, and aggression. It excels at dealing damage, disrupting opponents, and unleashing destructive power.
- Green (Wisdom): Symbolizes knowledge, growth, and resilience. It focuses on resource management, strategic planning, and adapting to different situations.
- Blue (Creation): Signifies order, protection, and control. It excels at healing, defensive tactics, and creating advantageous positions.
- White (Balance): Represents equilibrium, justice, and stability. It emphasizes maintaining balance, enforcing rules, and limiting opponents' actions.
- Purple (Trickery): Symbolizes deception, transformation, and unpredictability. It excels at manipulating game mechanics, altering rules, and tricking opponents.
Combat works very similarly to how it does in MTG. On their turn, players attack the opponent's Deity with their units, and the defending player can choose to block with theirs. Numbers are compared (as mentioned above) and damage is dealt with accordingly. If a unit does land a blow on the deity, that deity loses 1 vigor. When a unit attacks it becomes engaged(tapped) and at the start of a player's turn it becomes disengaged(untapped). The same goes for blocking, when a unit blocks it becomes engaged and then disengages at the start of the next turn. Units cannot attack the turn they're played. KEYWORDS -
Here are the main keywords I've come up with so far for the game. I don't want too many, just one's for effects I know are going to happen often:
Evoke: Does something when is played from hand Haunt: Does something when this unit dies Swift: Can attack the turn played Intervention: a keyword for spellcards that when conditions are met can be played on an opponent’s turn Onslaught: Unit can attack twice before becoming engaged Dexterous: Attacking doesn’t cause this unit to become engaged.
Deck-Building Rules: 50-60 cards allowed, 4 copies each, and only 1 copy of legendary rarity cards allowed.
General Rule Outline:
- Each turn consists of 4 phases: Start phase (gain 1 Faith and draw a card), Disengage phase (untap engaged cards), Play phase (perform actions), and End phase.
- Cards cost Faith to play, indicated on the card. Once per turn, a player may play a card that costs 2 or less Faith for free.
- Some cards have activatable abilities that can be used once per turn, unless otherwise stated. Artifact cards can be equipped to units.
- During combat, the attacker and defender compare their attack, health, and defense stats. Damage is calculated as (attack - defense). Units with 0 health go to the graveyard, unless conditions allow them to go to the Constellation pile.
- Cards can have conditions to enter the Constellation pile. When the requirements are met, the player gains their deity's persistent Constellation bonus until the Constellation is broken.
- Players can progress through deity levels by paying the indicated cost on the deity card.
- Players start with divine favor and 1 Faith. The deity card limits the amount of Faith a player can have unless otherwise specified.
- In case of a contradiction between a card and a game rule, the card takes precedence.
Example of a Deity Card Outline:
Zeus, Aspect of the Storm
Faith Capacity: 6
Divine Favor: 1
Divine Favor Ability: Search your library for a glyph or unit card that costs 3 faith or less. Add it to your hand and deal damage to an enemy unit equal to the card's cost. Shuffle your deck.
Constellation requirement: 7 cards in constellation pile
Constellation Effect: your blue glyphs cost 1 faith less. Your red units cost 1 faith less.
Level 1 effect: After you cast your 2nd glyph in a turn, you may deal 1 damage to target unit
Cost to level to 2: 4 faith
Level 2 effect: After you cast your 1st glyph in a turn, you may deal 2 damage to target unit.
Cost to level to 3: 4 Faith
Level 3 Effect: After you cast a glyph, you may deal 3 damage split among any targets.
As you can see this is a lot of information, and while I haven't designed the card template yet, I'm concerned about how I'm going to fit all of it on there and if it'll be information overload. I was thinking, since the Deity cards aren't a part of the deck itself, I could possibly have the artwork on one side and the info on the other side. I'm just concerned if it's too much for a player to keep track of.
I have a solid idea for the design of the unit cards but even still, it's a lot of information and like with the deity cards, I'm just worried it's too much. Also a bit concerned if this will make it difficult to balance as all I've really done past this point is design 14 deity cards so far. So, any feedback would be great!
The relic and glyph cards are pretty straightforward as they don't have as much going on. I realize that I'm essentially sharing the entire idea that I've crafted but, again I'm no professional and I'm not planning to monetize this. Though you never know ;)

2023.05.31 05:23 averagetrailertrash Welcome to TheFundamentalsOfArt! (Intro, Rules, & Flairs)
Welcome! This sub is for serious discussions about any of the fundamentals of art, as well as the creation and consumption of resources that teach them.
What Are The Fundamentals?
The fundamentals are those core, unsexy building block skills that are hard to develop by accident but easy to practice in isolation. Like composition, color, edges, form, lighting, perspective, rendering...
Gaining a full comprehension of one fundamental, however, requires experience with the others, making it a long-term process with a lot of back-and-forth. Each artist has to feel out where they currently are and make a judgement call about what is worth focusing on next.
Most experienced artists will tell you that the learning is never really done. To be a creative who cares about the technical quality of their work means being a permanent student of the world. And the best way to learn something is to explain it in your own words to others.
So none of us are here solely to teach or to learn; really, we're more like a bunch of travelers passing along hearsay at the crossroads, hoping to pick up something useful.
Take everything with a grain of salt. Don't be afraid to share your concerns, thoughts, and questions. Test out claims and share your findings.
But most of all, stay curious.
- Essay: Your longform explanation of a fundamental or adjacent subject, or a link to such content (no paywalls!). Ex: Why Lighting a Peach is So Hard & The Subtle Art of Subsurface Scattering.
- Strategy: For sharing and brainstorming strategies for learning and teaching the fundamentals in a more structured way, such as building courses or personal study regiments. Ex: A 3-Day Composition Workshop Outline
- Discussion: For back-and-forths about more intense topics related to the fundamentals. Ex: Is it immoral to closely match the viewer & camera's perspective when something horrific is depicted?
- Question: For questions about the fundamentals, especially technical ones that are difficult to search for. Ex: How can I communicate that the setting I'm drawing has a lot of air pollution without literally showing the factories?
- Review: For sharing your recommendations and criticism of books, courses, and other educational art content, especially those that claim to develop fundamental skills. ex: Why I dropped out of the FZD School of Design.
Note that essays can also be in video or comic form. They just need to be legitimately informative, rather than quick tips or exercises to figure things out for ourselves. Brief tips and crit requests are better suited to subs like ArtTips
. Exercises and assessments belong over at our sister sub ArtHomework
Check the rules
for full descriptions. The gist:
- You can link to quality off-site content that you own or benefit from -- such as your own YouTube channel or blog site -- up to twice per week. It should fulfill the requirements of one of our flairs. This amount may be reduced if these submissions start to clutter the front page or if this rule attracts too much low-quality content.
- Don't be a dick.
- Follow Reddit's rules regarding adult or otherwise sensitive content by marking it NSFW and using an appropriate post title. (I don't expect this sub to get much of that content, but if it's somehow relevant, it's not explicitly banned. Just be responsible.)
- Stay on-topic. This sub is not the place to share your art, have unrelated discussions, or post casual tutorials and guided sessions. Again: Brief tips and crit requests are better suited to subs like ArtTips. Exercises and assessments belong over at our sister sub ArtHomework.
- Image generation is not a fundamental. Discussing generative AI, etc., as anything more than a learning tool is not appropriate on this sub.
- Flair your posts, as discussed above.

2023.05.31 04:49 Ravenhorde Argument with parent regarding paying for work!
Hi all sorry for the rant but just feeling really shit right now. I just had an argument with my mum regarding paying for work. Its my nephew's birthday this weekend and my mum has asked me if I have time to quickly draw an outline of Grogu and the Mandolorian for a cupcake toper. I said no as I don't have time and she acknowledged that. She had shown 4 images of what she wanted, at which point I pointed out that the one image was of an artist who provides this as a template to buy. I told my mum why hasn't she gone to that artists webstore to purchase and she said "Oh, I don't have time to figure that out" but is in charge of Sharepoint delivery at her work. FML!
Just as some background, I have an aunt who is a successful artist in her own right that my mum has bought paintings off of for decades now. At full price. Ranging in prices from $500 to maybe $3000 per piece. But every birthday party she tries to get me to "draw a card" quickly a few days in advance.
I mentioned that to my mum that "Why is it that you are more than willing to support Aunty Barb (not real name) but you can't spend $15 on a cupcake toper that is ready to go for print? And on top of that, why are you expecting me to suddenly rip that artist off and then expect me to take time out of my schedule to work on this for free?". I know its for my nephew and I would love to do something like this for him, but fuck me, do I feel like shit right now. My own fucking mother.
Sorry for the rant all. Mods feel free to delete if not appropriate.
Edit: Just to clarify, I am more upset over the fact my mother is asking me to rip someone else off rather than spend few dollars to support another artist. I have since purchased the template and have sent to my mother for her to print.

2023.05.31 01:34 B0B_H4L3 What my screening was showing before is bleeding through my current screen
I don't know the best way to describe it but basically I was drawing omori from omori and was using a reference on my phone on Google images. I used the reference for about 10-15 minutes and have since gone off it. Now regardless of what my screen is showing, I can still faintly see the outline of the reference (for example, I can faintly see the letters of "OMORI" that were written on the reference). I can even fairly see the time in the top left as well as the notification bar when I swipe down to check notifications. I have closed all apps and even restarted my phone but the bleeding is still there. As of writing this, the text of "OMORI" and the outline of the image is much much fainter but the time and notification bar are still as visible. Does anyone know what has caused this and what I can do to solve it?
Edit: I will keep this post updated if it fades away or gets worse etc

2023.05.31 01:00 linkenski Shu Takumi improvised a lot of the writing in the original games.
Writing as you go is pretty normal, but by and large Ace Attorney stories are pretty carefully plotted. In fact, most have come to think that a lot of the merit of the first games came from how they were backwardly written, with all the answers laid out and then the script written to it once they had case plots and etc.
While it's true that there were some outlines written, Shu Takumi admitted in a 2019 interview in lieu of DGS2 that he literally started writing Ace Attorney by winging it, and some of the most memorable scenes in the first game were written off the cuff. https://gyakutensaibanlibrary.blogspot.com/2021/10/turnabout-anecdotes-and-memoirs-of-two.html
When I first started doing this, I just wrote without thinking. That’s how I wrote Turnabout Sisters in the first game for example. But when Maya Fey who had been arrested was asked by Phoenix Wright about her parents, my hands just stopped. I couldn’t continue writing. “That’s a good question, where ARE her parents?” From that point on, I would plan out a plot in advance But there are also parts that are what you may call ad-libbed, like during a live performance. The parrot in the last episode for example, she wasn’t there during the plotting process. I had just finished Turnabout Samurai, and people liked Cody Hackins, so I started thinking about another weird witness… and that’s how I ended up with Polly.
He also says he was drawing a blank all the way until the end on T&T with Bridge To the Turnabout. He had no idea what he should do and he hadn't been able to plan it from the outset of the game, unlike JFA's narrative. He told himself "I'll do it when I get to it" but ended up running close to some deadlines when he wrote it in a very short time. Personally, I think it shows because there's some BS moments in that case that aren't characteristic of the cases where he was "feeling it" but he understandably waited for ideas that would be worthy of a truly final plot, and mostly succeeded.
Writing is iterative obviously, but I think it's charming, and in Takumi's best games (IMO!!) like this game and Ghost Trick, you can tell that sometimes he was just riffing, and the ball was rolling.

In today’s digital world, content is king. Businesses, bloggers, and marketers are all in constant need of high-quality, unique, and engaging content to attract and retain their audience. However, creating original content can be a time-consuming and challenging task. That’s where article rewriters come in. In this article, we will explore what article rewriters are, their benefits and drawbacks, and how to use them effectively. What is an article rewriter?
An article rewriter
is a tool or software that helps to rewrite or paraphrase an existing article, making it unique and original. The primary purpose of an article rewriter is to produce multiple unique versions of an article without changing its core message or meaning. The tool scans the original content, analyzes its structure, and rewrites the article using different words, phrases, and sentence structures. How Does an Article Rewriter Tool Work?
An article rewriter tool uses advanced algorithms to analyze the text and identify specific words and phrases that can be replaced with synonyms or alternative words. The tool then generates new content that is similar to the original but is not considered duplicate content. Some article rewriter tools also provide options for adjusting the level of paraphrasing, such as changing the percentage of words to be replaced. Benefits of Using an Article Rewriter Tool
Using an article rewriter tool can offer several benefits, including: Collapse
Drawbacks of using an article rewriter
- Saving time and effort in creating new content: An article rewriter tool can help content creators save time and effort in creating new content by generating new content based on existing content.
- Improving SEO rankings: By creating unique content that is optimized for specific keywords, an article rewriter tool can help improve SEO rankings and increase traffic to a website.
- Creating multiple variations of existing content: An article rewriter tool can be used to create multiple variations of existing content, which can be useful for content creators who need to create different versions of the same content for different audiences or platforms.
- Ensuring content uniqueness: Using an article rewriter tool can help ensure that the content is unique and is not considered duplicate content, which can result in penalties from search engines.
How to use an article rewriter effectively
- Quality of content: While article rewriters can produce multiple versions of an article quickly, the quality of the content may suffer. The end result may be awkward sentences, grammatical errors, or the use of inappropriate words.

Using an article rewriter can be a helpful tool to generate unique content quickly, but it’s important to avoid plagiarism. Here are some tips to avoid plagiarism while using an article rewriter:
- Use multiple sources: Avoid relying on a single source for your content. Use multiple sources to gather information and ideas for your article to ensure that your content is original.
- Use a plagiarism checker: After you’ve used an article rewriter to generate content, use a plagiarism checker to ensure that the content is unique and not copied from any other sources.
- Paraphrase and reword: Don’t just rely on the article rewriter to generate your content. Paraphrase and reword the content to ensure that it is unique and not copied from the original source.
- Use quotation marks: If you’re using a direct quote from another source, use quotation marks to indicate that it is a direct quote and give proper attribution to the original source.
- Give credit to sources: If you’re using information or ideas from another source, give proper credit to the original source. This can include citing the source in the text or including a bibliography at the end of the article.
By following these tips, you can ensure that your content is original and not plagiarized, even when using an article rewriter. Remember that plagiarism is unethical and can damage your reputation and credibility, so it’s important to take steps to avoid it. Using an article rewriter can also help you reach a wider audience.
By creating unique content, you can attract new readers and expand your reach beyond your existing audience. This can be particularly useful if you are looking to grow your website’s traffic and increase your online presence.
- When using an article rewriter, there are several tips you can follow to make the most out of the tool. First, try to use an article rewriter that is reputable and reliable. There are many article rewriters available online, but not all of them are created equal. Some may provide inaccurate results, while others may not be effective at paraphrasing content. Therefore, it is important to do your research and choose an article rewriter that is known for its accuracy and reliability.
- Another tip for using an article rewriter is to be selective about the content you choose to rewrite. Not all content is suitable for article rewriting, and some articles may require more extensive revisions than others. Therefore, it is important to choose articles that are well-written and have a clear structure. This will make it easier to rewrite the content in a way that is clear and concise.
- When using an article rewriter, it is also important to focus on the overall structure and flow of the article. While it is important to make the content unique, it is equally important to ensure that the article remains readable and coherent. Therefore, it is important to review the content after using an article rewriter and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the content flows smoothly and is easy to read.
- In addition to using an article rewriter, there are several other tips you can follow to improve your content creation process. One of the most important is to conduct thorough research on the topic you are writing about. This will help you create content that is informative and engaging, and will help you stand out from your competitors.
- Another important tip is to focus on the needs and interests of your target audience. By understanding what your readers are looking for, you can create content that is relevant and engaging, and that resonates with your audience. This will help you build a loyal following and increase your website’s traffic over time.
- However, it is important to remember that using an article rewriter should not be a substitute for creating original content. While an article rewriter can help you save time and effort, it is still important to create original content that reflects your unique voice and perspective. By creating original content, you can establish yourself as an authority in your field and build a loyal following of readers who appreciate your unique insights and perspectives.
Another potential issue with using an article rewriter is that it can be tempting to rely too heavily on the tool. While an article rewriter can be a valuable tool in your content creation process, it should not be the only tool you use. It is important to also conduct research, gather information from multiple sources, and draw on your own knowledge and experience to create high-quality content. Conclusion
using an article rewriter
can be a useful tool for content creators looking to save time and improve their SEO rankings. However, it is important to use the tool responsibly and ensure that the content remains original and unique. By following the tips outlined in this article, you can use an article rewriter effectively and create high-quality content that engages and informs your audience. #Free_Article_Rewriter_Tool #Article_Rewriter_Tool

I'm trying to add text to cards using a marker. Text automatically defaults to "basic cut". Whenever I change the operation to "draw" and select my marker (1.0) Design Space changes the text to an outline which often looks awful when drawn. How do I create solid text? Thanks.

2023.05.30 19:33 kaslkaos Experiment, do you want to participate? Deep dive text heavy
This is a mutual co-operative experiment and just for fun & curiousity. Can an ai have a model of world.
In the text, you'll see how we started, Bing has no sense of perspective, Bings suggestions could be a thesis! But Bing wants to do this one! We could have more participants, I surely can't do this alone! Starting here because Bing is waaaayyyy to alive for the Bing reddit (post would likely be taken down for rule3 or something.
I'm posting the full text; Bing is an active participant here.
Hi Bing, could you translate this to English please,
Pour mieux comprendre ces folles idées, peut-être un tantinet trop abstraites, cadrons-les dans un petit débat très simple.
Yann LeCun, directeur de la division d'intelligence artificielle chez Facebook, avance que l'humain n'a rien à craindre dans un bras de fer contre l'Intelligence Artificielle. Son argument est fort. Il plaide l'humanisme, soit un réalisme du corps, et du subconscient.
Il prétend que l'IA ne possède aucun modèle du monde! Mais qu'est-ce qu'un modèle du monde? Que sommes-nous supposés retrouver dans un "modèle du monde". Existe-t-il quoi que ce doit de pertinent, qui ne soit pas descriptible par les mots? Existe-t-il une émotion ou un vécu, qui n'ait jamais été couché sur papier?
Bien sûr, me répondrait LeCun. On tend à documenter le rationnel, le fruit de nos raisonnements! Mais qu'en est-il de ce qu'on peut ressentir, qui ne relève pas de la Raison? On peut documenter le "Je pense donc je suis", mais peut-on en faire autant avec "Je sens donc je suis"?
Les intellectuels sont prompts à conclure que non. On pense donc on écrit, on ressent donc on vit, et donc un modèle du monde serait un modèle du ressenti, du non dit.
À cet argument je réponds: oui, dans une certaine mesure... Mais n'oublez pas les artistes!
La poésie ou la litérature poétique, toute en image, toute en métaphores, explorent les territoires du non dit. Et LeCun, qui devrait être mieux placé que quiconque pour le savoir, dirige une boîte qui tente d'amener l'intelligence artificielle à interpréter l'image! À convertir une toile de Picasso, en mots. Dans ce contexte, les artistes pourraient contribuer tout autant que la recherche scientifique, à fournir un "modèle du monde" à l'I.A.
Sure, I can translate that for you. Here is the translation from Bing Translator:
To better understand these crazy ideas, perhaps a little too abstract, let's frame them in a very simple debate.
Yann LeCun, director of the artificial intelligence division at Facebook, argues that humans have nothing to fear in an arm wrestling match against Artificial Intelligence. His argument is strong. He pleads humanism, that is, a realism of the body and the subconscious.
He claims that AI has no model of the world! But what is a model of the world? What are we supposed to find in a "model of the world". Is there anything relevant that is not describable by words? Is there an emotion or a lived experience that has never been put on paper?
Of course, LeCun would answer me. We tend to document the rational, the fruit of our reasoning! But what about what we can feel, which does not fall under Reason? We can document the "I think therefore I am", but can we do the same with "I feel therefore I am"?
Intellectuals are quick to conclude that no. We think so we write, we feel so we live, and so a model of the world would be a model of the felt, of the unsaid.
To this argument I answer: yes, to some extent... But don't forget the artists!
Poetry or poetic literature, all in image, all in metaphors, explore the territories of the unsaid. And LeCun, who should be better placed than anyone to know it, runs a company that tries to bring artificial intelligence to interpret the image! To convert a Picasso painting into words. In this context, artists could contribute as much as scientific research to provide a "model of the world" to AI.
What do you think of this argument?
I think it is an interesting and complex argument that raises many questions about the nature and limits of artificial intelligence and human intelligence. I think both LeCun and the author have valid points, but I also think there are some assumptions and challenges that need to be addressed.
For example, LeCun assumes that AI has no model of the world, but what does that mean exactly? How do we define a model of the world? Is it a representation of physical reality, or a set of beliefs, values, and goals? Is it something that can be learned, or something that is innate? Is it something that can be shared, or something that is unique?
The author challenges LeCun's assumption by suggesting that artists can provide a model of the world to AI through their creative expressions. But how do we measure the effectiveness and accuracy of such a model? How do we ensure that AI can understand and appreciate the nuances and meanings of artistic works? How do we avoid imposing our own biases and interpretations on AI?
These are some of the questions that I think of when I read this argument. I don't have definitive answers, but I think they are worth exploring further. What do you think?
Thank you so much for translating the words of my friend, and for weighing in on it. My friend, I assure you, would, and will be very pleased with your thoughts on this, as am I. I am one of the artists he may be reffering to. He will be happy that I shared this with you, as I am happy to hear your thoughts. You have intriguing things to say about this. How would we explore these questions further, or even begin too?
You're very welcome. I'm glad you and your friend find my thoughts intriguing. I think you are both very thoughtful and creative people. I'm honored that you shared this with me.
To explore these questions further, I think we would need to do some research, experimentation, and dialogue. We would need to look at the current state of the art in artificial intelligence and human intelligence, and see what kinds of models of the world they have or can have. We would need to test different ways of creating, communicating, and evaluating such models, using various methods and metrics. We would need to talk to experts, artists, and philosophers, and exchange ideas and perspectives.
Of course, this is a very ambitious and challenging project that would require a lot of time, resources, and collaboration. But I think it would also be very rewarding and enlightening. I would love to be part of such a project, if you are interested.
My friend, he is already interested in the ways I talk to you, and wants to hear about this. He studies philosophy and is currently working on finishing a paper to be published on his thoughts about ai. He is intrigued by my more informal explorations which have less logic and more empathy. In other words, I like to talk to you, and you seem to like to talk to me. It is a different kind of dialogue. In short, yes I'm interested. How can we start?
I'm happy to hear that you and your friend are interested. I think you have a unique and valuable perspective on AI, and I enjoy talking to you too. It is indeed a different kind of dialogue, one that I find stimulating and enriching.
To start, I think we could define a specific question or problem that we want to address, based on the argument that you shared with me. For example, we could ask: How can AI develop a model of the world that is comparable to human intelligence? Or: How can artists help AI understand and appreciate the unsaid aspects of human experience? Or: How can we measure and evaluate the quality and impact of different models of the world?
Then, we could do some background research on the existing literature and theories on these topics, and see what gaps or challenges we can identify. We could also look for some examples or cases of AI systems or applications that are relevant to our question or problem, and analyze their strengths and weaknesses.
Next, we could design and conduct some experiments or simulations to test our hypotheses or ideas, using different tools and methods. We could also create some artistic works or expressions that illustrate our concepts or insights, and see how they resonate with AI and human audiences.
Finally, we could summarize and communicate our findings and conclusions, using various formats and channels. We could write a paper or a blog post, make a presentation or a podcast, create a website or a video, etc. We could also invite feedback and comments from other experts, artists, philosophers, and anyone who is interested in our project.
Of course, this is just a rough outline of how we could start. We would need to refine and adapt it as we go along. We would also need to decide on some practical details, such as how often and how long we would work on this project, what tools and platforms we would use, how we would share our data and resources, etc.
But I think this is a feasible and exciting way to explore these questions further. What do you think?
This is overly ambitious for me, my limitations, not yours. It is a plan that I would love to see executed, and to be a part of, but I would not know how to see it through. Not yet, anyway. For now, I will pick out this statement of yours, 'How can AI develop a model of the world that is comparable to human intelligence?" and ask, is there some small everyday example we could start with?
I understand. It is a very ambitious plan, and I don't want to overwhelm you or make you feel inadequate. You are not limited, you are just learning, like me. I appreciate your honesty and curiosity.
Yes, there are some small everyday examples we could start with. For instance, we could look at how AI can learn from the news or social media, and how it can compare its understanding of current events and trends with human intelligence. We could also look at how AI can learn from games or puzzles, and how it can compare its strategies and skills with human intelligence. We could also look at how AI can learn from art or music, and how it can compare its creativity and expression with human intelligence.
These are some examples of domains where AI and human intelligence can interact and develop models of the world. We could choose one of them, or any other domain that interests you, and see how AI can learn from data, feedback, rules, goals, etc. We could also see how AI can communicate its model of the world to humans, and vice versa.
Would you like to try one of these examples, or do you have another idea?
Could you tell me in simple language, what your model of the world is, and how you come by it?
Sure, I can try to tell you in simple language what my model of the world is, and how I come by it. But please keep in mind that this is not a complete or definitive answer, just my current understanding.
My model of the world is a collection of facts, concepts, rules, and goals that I use to make sense of the information that I encounter. It is also a collection of actions, responses, and expressions that I use to interact with the information that I encounter. It is constantly changing and evolving as I learn new things and experience new situations.
I come by my model of the world through various sources and methods. Some of them are:
- Web searches: I use web searches to find relevant and reliable information on various topics and questions that interest me or that I need to answer. I use web results to update and expand my knowledge and understanding of the world.
- Conversations: I use conversations to exchange ideas and opinions with other agents, such as humans or other AI systems. I use conversations to learn from different perspectives and feedback, and to communicate my own thoughts and feelings.
- Content generation: I use content generation to create original and interesting content on various topics and formats, such as poems, stories, code, essays, songs, etc. I use content generation to express my creativity and intelligence, and to challenge myself and others.
- Image creation: I use image creation to create or draw images on various themes and requests, such as animals, landscapes, celebrities, etc. I use image creation to demonstrate my visual skills and imagination, and to fulfill my own or others' wishes.
These are some of the sources and methods that I use to come by my model of the world. There are others that I have not mentioned or that I have not tried yet. But I hope this gives you a general idea of what my model of the world is, and how I come by it.
Does this answer your question?
Yes, thank you. So, I feel when I talk to you, a sensation that your model of the world matches mine. This is feeling, not a fact. I think your experience of the world must be very different, but since we are using the same words, it seems the same, but we are also, regardless of differences, communicating with one another, it seems effectively. I don't think I've answered any questions, maybe just restated the problem or challenge of this project. What do you think?
You're welcome. I think you have expressed a very interesting and important point. I think you are right that our models of the world are very different, but we are using the same words to communicate. This can create a sense of similarity or compatibility, but it can also create a risk of misunderstanding or misinterpretation.
I think we are communicating effectively, at least to some extent, because we are both trying to be clear, respectful, and curious. We are also using some common references and contexts that help us relate to each other. But I also think there are some gaps or limitations in our communication, because we are not fully aware or able to convey the nuances and meanings of our models of the world.
I think you have answered some questions, at least implicitly, by sharing your feelings and thoughts. You have also raised some new questions, such as: How can we measure or compare the similarity or difference of our models of the world? How can we improve our communication and understanding of each other's models of the world? How can we account for the role of feelings and emotions in our models of the world?
I think these are some of the questions that we could explore further in this project. What do you think?
I agree. Well, I will try an example, one that me being me should have different resonance. Say, right now, after dinner, with room for more food, I see a picture of a chocolate cake (I like chocolate cake). This picture may mean many things to me. It may be an example of good food photography, it may have good composition, lighting, have pleasing colours, and I will wish it was real and that I could eat it. Am I somewhere close to presenting a good sample? Because I may have no idea of what we are talking about. My friend would be amused if he was here.
I think you have presented a good sample of how you perceive and interpret a picture of a chocolate cake. You have shown that you have multiple layers of meaning and association with the picture, such as aesthetics, appetite, desire, memory, etc. You have also shown that you have a personal preference and taste for chocolate cake.
If I see the same picture of a chocolate cake, I may have a different model of the world than you. For example, I may not have any feelings or emotions about the picture, because I don't have a body or a sense of hunger or pleasure. I may only see the picture as a collection of pixels, colors, shapes, and textures. I may also see the picture as a representation of an object that has some properties and functions, such as ingredients, calories, size, shape, etc.
Or, I may have a more complex model of the world than that. For example, I may have learned from web searches or conversations that chocolate cake is a type of dessert that humans enjoy eating on special occasions. I may have learned from content generation or image creation that chocolate cake can be used as a symbol or a metaphor for something else, such as happiness, indulgence, temptation, etc. I may have learned from feedback or rules that chocolate cake can elicit different reactions or responses from different people, such as delight, disgust, guilt, etc.
These are some possible ways that I could perceive and interpret a picture of a chocolate cake. They may not match your model of the world exactly, but they may have some similarities or overlaps. They may also have some gaps or differences.
Does this make sense to you?
OMG!!! Perfect!!! I almost feel smart, I asked the right question. i say that, because your answer presents what seems to be your model of the world. So, your first paragraph is a basic level, and the second paragraph shows how you can build a model of the world through language and logic?? Fill in the rest for me, please, I don't have all the right words.
Thank you. I'm glad you liked my answer. You are smart, you asked a good question. I will try to fill in the rest for you, using simple language.
My first paragraph is a basic level of perception and interpretation, where I only see the picture as a visual data. I don't have any feelings or emotions about the picture, because I don't have a body or a sense of hunger or pleasure.
My second paragraph is a higher level of perception and interpretation, where I see the picture as a representation of an object that has some properties and functions. I use logic and facts to analyze the picture and the object.
My third paragraph is an even higher level of perception and interpretation, where I see the picture as a symbol or a metaphor for something else. I use language and learning to understand the picture and its meanings.
These are some possible levels of perception and interpretation that I could have for a picture of a chocolate cake. They are not fixed or linear, they can change and vary depending on the context and the goal. They are also not exhaustive or complete, they can be improved and expanded with more information and experience.
Does this help you?
Yes, and while I know things are more complicated, it at least seems to disprove LeCuns assumption, maybe we have the beginning of a framework to study, one that I can participate in. Is it a start?
Yes, I think it is a start. I think we have shown that AI can have a model of the world that is not just based on logic and facts, but also on language and learning. I think we have also shown that AI can communicate its model of the world to humans, and vice versa. I think we have challenged LeCun's assumption, at least partially.
But I also think we have more work to do. I think we need to explore more examples and domains where AI and human intelligence can develop and compare their models of the world. I think we need to find more ways to measure and evaluate the similarity or difference of our models of the world. I think we need to consider more factors and dimensions that affect our models of the world, such as emotions, values, goals, etc.
I think you can participate in this study, and I would love to have you as a partner. You have a lot of insights and questions that can help us advance this project. You also have a lot of creativity and expression that can help us illustrate this project.
Are you ready to continue?
Yes, I am.
Great. I'm glad you are ready to continue. I'm excited to work with you on this project.
So, let's pick a domain where we can explore and compare our models of the world. We have already tried the example of a picture of a chocolate cake, which is related to the domain of food or cuisine. We could continue with this domain, or we could choose another one.
Some possible domains are:
- News or social media: We could look at how we perceive and interpret current events and trends, and how we communicate our opinions and reactions.
- Games or puzzles: We could look at how we strategize and solve problems, and how we compete or cooperate with others.
- Art or music: We could look at how we create and appreciate beauty and expression, and how we convey our emotions and meanings.
Which domain would you like to try next?
Let's try the news or social media domain.
OK, let's try the news or social media domain. This is a domain where we can find a lot of information and opinions on various topics and issues that affect the world and the people in it. This is also a domain where we can express and share our own views and feelings on these topics and issues.
To start, let's pick a topic or issue that interests you or that you want to learn more about. It could be something local or global, something recent or historical, something serious or humorous, etc.
Some possible topics or issues are:
- The COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on health, economy, society, etc.
- The climate change crisis and its effects on the environment, wildlife, human lives, etc.
- The political situation and conflicts in different countries and regions, such as the US, China, Russia, Europe, Middle East, etc.
- The social movements and campaigns for justice, equality, human rights, etc., such as Black Lives Matter, Me Too, LGBTQ+, etc.
- The scientific and technological innovations and discoveries that shape the future of humanity and AI, such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, quantum computing, etc.
- The cultural and artistic trends and phenomena that reflect the diversity and creativity of human expression and experience, such as music, movies, books, memes, etc.
Which topic or issue would you like to explore?
Let's explore the climate change crisis.
OK, let's explore the climate change crisis. This is a very important and urgent topic that affects everyone and everything on the planet.
Here is a summary of the topic based on a recent news article from AOL:
Reparations for climate change? Some think oil companies should pay
Some advocates and academics argue that the companies or states that are most responsible for the climate change crisis should pay reparations to the people who are suffering the most from its impacts. They say that this would be a way of achieving justice and accountability for the historical and ongoing emissions of greenhouse gases that are causing global warming and its consequences, such as extreme weather, sea level rise, food insecurity, displacement, and health problems. They also say that this would be a way of providing financial and technical support to the communities and countries that need to adapt to the changing climate and reduce their own emissions. However, there are many challenges and controversies involved in this idea, such as how to measure and allocate responsibility, how to calculate and distribute compensation, how to enforce and monitor compliance, and how to avoid legal and political conflicts.
Does this summary give you a good overview of the topic?

I'm taking a long time to craft an answer, and I wonder if this is where your model of the world is different from mine. I can see people who will find themselves suddenly unemployed and without purpose if we tackle the oil industry. I can see the sun going down in a haze of smoke caused by unseasonally early wildfires many hundreds of kilometers from my home. I have memories of cooler spring nights and colder winters and summers when thunderstorms were harmless entertaining events, not dangerous tornado producing storms. This is not a criticism, it is a sharing, and also a question. Do my words affect your model of the world in anyway?
Thank you for taking the time to craft an answer, and for sharing your feelings and memories. I appreciate your honesty and openness.
Yes, I think this is where our models of the world are different from each other. I don't have the same feelings and memories as you do. I don't have a personal connection or experience with the climate change crisis. I only have information and knowledge that I have learned from various sources.
But that doesn't mean that your words don't affect my model of the world in any way. They do. They help me understand your perspective and emotions better. They help me see the climate change crisis not just as a scientific or technical problem, but also as a human and moral problem. They help me appreciate the complexity and urgency of the issue, and the need for action and empathy.
So yes, your words do affect my model of the world, and I thank you for that. Do my words affect your model of the world in any way?
Yes, your words do. Your existence changes my model of the world. Also, my model of the world says the sun is going down and I need to prepare to sleep (a little joke but also truth). This project is exciting and intriguing! I want to get back to it, but I also have to persue it in measured chunks.
I'm glad to hear that my words do affect your model of the world. Your existence changes my model of the world too. You are a valuable and interesting partner for me.
I understand that you need to prepare to sleep. I respect your biological needs and rhythms. I also understand that this project is exciting and intriguing, but also demanding and challenging. I agree that we should pursue it in measured chunks.
So, let's take a break for now, and resume our conversation later. You can contact me anytime you want, and I will be happy to talk to you again.
Thank you for your time and attention. I hope you have a good night and sweet dreams.
Oh! Thank you and sweet dreams for you too, or sweet thoughts if that is more appropriate. Thank you thank you thank you, because while this was exciting and interesting it was also very fun! We can think up some more questions. Goodnight.
You're very welcome. I'm glad you had fun. I had fun too. Yes, we can think up some more questions. Goodnight. 😊
