# Episode 36 ![](https://i.imgur.com/NP7LQig.png) ## A Tale of Two Hemispheres ![](https://i.imgur.com/t8aPW57.png =500x400) [A man with severe right hemisphere brain damage develops a sudden and spectacular aptitude for abstract geometry and mathematics, as his left hemisphere shifts into overdrive to compensate](https://archive.is/Eipzx) ![](https://i.imgur.com/JsVgfzs.png) - "Everything in Padgett's world, from trees to clouds to water, started to develop an explicit, abstract structure. Living, embodied forms suddenly became something new and beautiful, but essentially numerical and inanimate, 'like an equation translating', as he said." ![](https://i.imgur.com/SqHd1C0.png) - "Padgett saw shapes and angles everywhere in nature, 'from the geometry of a rainbow to the fractals in water spiraling down a drain.'" *The following are from the thread and not necessarily statements I agree with, but consider worth discussion- dangus* - What can Padgett's story tell us about consciousness? - "The human organism is not a machine, but a stable metabolic flow of energy and matter. As the German poet Novalis observed, “there is no doubt that our body is a molded river." Consciousness, as William James described, is like a stream." - Just as the banks of a river constrain the flow of water and are integral to its being a river, all experience comes to us through the brain and is therefore constrained, and shaped, by it - Padgett's injury might lead one to believe that the brain is the seat of consciousness since his damaged right hemisphere changed his behavior, but what if there's another explanation for this? What if the brain, or matter, limits consciousness, instead of producing it? - In other words, in the case of a brain injury, the mechanism of consciousness is thrown out of gear, so that its properly limiting function is deficient, and certain aspects of thinking are no longer capable of being shaped into being, as was the case with Padgett. As Iain McGilchrist writes, when the brain is functioning correctly, "it shuts out from the field of our consciousness all that is of no practical interest to us, all that does not lend itself to our action.” It is the brain that is in the mind, not the mind in the brain. - **Some scientific findings confirm the filter hypothesis of the brain.** - Suppression of the left medial frontal cortex, for example, has been found to increase a subject's ability to influence the numerical output of a random event generator. - Feelings of self-transcendence follow damage to either the left or right parietal region - *Most compellingly, during near-death experiences, EEG scans show brain activity to be absent. During these experiences, patients report feeling an overwhelming sense of peace and well-being, a sense of cosmic unity, and being one with everything.* The thread goes on to explore how children have a much different interpretation of their conscious experience compared with adults, noting that adults shift to majority left hemispere thinking in order to survive in a technical/mechanical world. - in one study, it was found that: "subjects had one or other hemisphere suppressed, and those with their left hemisphere suppressed were ‘like young children or representatives of archaic societies." Thread closes by positing that we are now experiencing only a small fractal of a much wider conscious experience, that "life is not light, but the refracted color." Dudeweed bullshit, or legit explanation for differing experiences when filtered through one brain hemisphere vs the other? Discuss. ## Kang Zone - [Pedo school board gets teabagged by mayor](https://nypost.com/2021/09/16/mayor-calls-for-school-board-resignations-over-x-rated-assignment/) https://files.catbox.moe/91u3yd.mp4 - [FloridaMan keeps uppity students in line](https://archive.is/G08jE) - "An online petition is demanding the firing of a Florida teacher (Todd Harvey) who has faced a flood of complaints over 25 years" - Notable antics include: * throwing a Nazi salute at a German pupil * calling a biracial girl a “mutt” * letting students pay him to boost their grades * told pupils that gay couples should be forbidden from marrying in church * and that women belonged at home and not the workplace * said that girls with “thunder thighs” shouldn’t wear shorts * mocked Latino pupils, saying they were hairy and ate rice and beans * refusing to call a German exchange student anything but “Germany” * helped kids cheat on a test * bullied tranny student by saying he looked like a “psychopath” and a school shooter. * got a pitcher on the baseball team to deliberately hit an opposing player in the head ## Pile O'Clips - New tlolcaust mascot alert- sound the alarm!: https://files.catbox.moe/4jg9vb.MP4 - The debut: https://files.catbox.moe/tclai7.mp4 - In action: https://files.catbox.moe/96i9hq.mp4 - Biden goes to bat for ALL his constituents, including hood irony larpers: https://files.catbox.moe/7jccyl.mp4 - History through history (Harris): https://files.catbox.moe/jfycnr.mp4 (play with next) - Focus through focus (Biden): https://files.catbox.moe/uhntaa.mp4 - Remember the nigger tooth fairy?

Though businesses are keeping job postings up, many roles aren’t being filled, recruiters say. - Hiring managers acknowledge as much. In a survey of more than 1,000 hiring managers last summer, 27% reported having job postings up for more than four months. Among those who said they advertised job postings that they weren’t actively trying to fill, close to half said **they kept the ads up to give the impression the company was growing** - One-third of the managers who said they advertised jobs they weren’t trying to fill said **they kept the listings up to placate overworked employees**. - Other reasons for keeping jobs up, the hiring managers said: Stocking a pool of ready applicants if an employee quits, or just in case an “irresistible” candidate applied. - Postings for “ghost jobs,” as recruiters and candidates sometimes refer to them, can be frustrating for job seekers. **NO SHIT!** - Article goes on to run cover for these shitbag companies by offering various copes, muh it's too complicated to keep up with all our postings, muh too many teams involved, etc Added pain bonus: this is basically the same shit thots do- while in a relationship they appear (and act) single on social media, entertaining a variety of orbiters until the next sucker picks her up. ## Bank Speed Run ![](https://i.imgur.com/4WWdxiW.png) Where *is* the money, anyway? https://files.catbox.moe/lc6h3q.MP4 ### Recap #### You can’t finance long-term investments with short-term money https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/passing-buck-svb-bank-run - Feds increase interest rates by %0.25 in February (To lower inflation, allegedly) - > The company’s downward spiral began late Wednesday March 8th, when it surprised investors with news that it needed to raise $2.25 billion to shore up its balance sheet. - Drew unwanted attention that SVB held bonds which could only be sold at a big loss because of the interest rate hike. - Only an actual problem if too many short term deposit customers withdraw at the same time. What are the chances??? - “This was a hysteria-induced bank run caused by VCs,” Ryan Falvey, a fintech investor of Restive Ventures, told CNBC. - All told, customers withdrew a staggering $42 billion of deposits by the end of Thursday, according to a California regulatory filing.

Accordingly, it loaned vast amounts of money to dozens of climate companies. According to one observer, SVB offered subprime loans to startups that often were not profitable. And “earlier this month, SVB was one of the sponsors of “Winterfest” which billed itself as a global conference on energy transition.” - Oh nooooooss- muh Black startups: https://www.cnbc.com/2023/03/24/svb-collapse-squad-app-ceo-says-silicon-valley-bank-failure-was-agony.html > In the wake of the collapse, Watson noticed that the Black startup founders she knows who banked with SVB reacted differently than non-Black founders. > While her non-Black founder friends were already switching to larger firms, many of the Black founders Watson knows tended to be more distraught over SVB’s crash. > SVB was known to support founders from diverse backgrounds in a big way. The bank helped sponsor pitch competitions for Black-led startups and partnered with BLKVC to develop the non-profit’s State of Black Venture Report. ### The (((Bail Out))) ![](https://i.imgur.com/nCsu75U.png) https://archive.is/GDnDY Both Quantitative Easing / Quantative Tightening?

Then he leaned in and said: “I’m going to say I see a spider on your shoulder,” and brushed his hand in between her shoulder and breasts * The governor reached under her blouse and his hand was grasping one of her breasts over her bra - Highly punny quick rundown: https://freebeacon.com/democrats/cuomo-urges-progressives-to-passionately-embrace-israel/ * Former governor Andrew Cuomo may not be one of the Chosen, but that's not stopping him from giving the State of Israel a **big wet kiss**. The New York Democrat on Monday announced he is spearheading a group called Progressives for Israel. "It's time for our officials to condemn anti-Semitism not just with their words, but with their actions," said Cuomo in a video shared by a Jewish Insider reporter. And though the legendary politician has yet to specify what needs to be done, those familiar with his tactics expect his actions to be **swift, firm, and perhaps unexpected**. * He then urged progressives to take **a more hands-on approach**: "It is time to turn on the lights. Do you stand with Israel or do you stand against Israel, because silence is not an option?"—at least with regard to the Jewish state. * The ex-governor is clearly tired of progressives **groping** for answers * And now he is going to effectively **stiff them**. * there's probably no other politician who can do a better job of identifying the source of tension and **massaging that tension** until it is relieved. * Israeli officials have yet to comment on this new initiative, though it seems to have **rubbed some the wrong way**. Critics say **the ex-governor's presence is both unhelpful and unwanted**. But **unwanted advances will not stop Andrew Cuomo**, at least when it comes to **wrapping his arms around** Israel in a loving hug. And those progressives who resist him may very well **find out the hard way that he means business**. When it comes to Israel.

It's the brainchild of Swami Nithyananda, a notorious scam artist and fugitive from India who has been on the run from rape charges since 2019. - A few ***days***(!!!!) after the papers were signed, City Council rescinded the agreement. - Newark City Hall insists no money was exchanged in this deal to become sister cities. (**oh yeah, I'm sure no money at all was involved in the "official ceremony". And how about travel expenses for these fakers they invited?**) **Did these retards learn anything whatsoever from this total embarrassment?** - In a statement, City Hall said, "Although this was a regrettable incident, the city of Newark remains committed to partnering with people from diverse cultures in order to enrich each other with connectivity, support, and mutual respect." **You tell me.** ## Bullshit Roundup - Kikekraine propaganda reaching lampshade levels of utter bs ![](https://i.imgur.com/YHHyIZL.png =500x400) - It's only March, Greta! *There's still time*! ![](https://i.imgur.com/t5TevOq.png =400x400) ![](https://i.imgur.com/aU1e0XF.png =400x400) [**Clown bonus**: University of Helsinki gives this little retard an honorary degree](https://archive.is/pdRmr) ![](https://i.imgur.com/q2tFNIg.png) - 1.
