    Mmh, never really liked introduction threads, but anyway, just want to say hi to you and hope for some nice discussion.

    Apart from that, it is also a pleasure to read something from that old bitch Abraxas.

    Now. Now. Give it time.
    Write a thread, Abraxas. Show the people what you're made of.

    Oh. And you know that Dreamwalker was complimenting you, right? Sure you do.

    (Aside of my own. Emoticons, Abraxas? The loss of a home is changing you.)

    Very weird. Let Insanity change your name.

    (Really, I don't think I can last here long. Its so...odd)
    I'm constantly amazed at how such a creative, vibrant, free spirit is unable to handle change.
    It got you banned once, remember?

    We could always go to philosophyforums... Ha!
    I heard there's a pokemon forum that really roxxorz too.

    Asshole won't respond to my email?
    SMoking too much crack?
    Kidding.

    Hee hee.
    Good to see you... NerdOverlord. (Another that refuses to take their true name? Gonna be weird.)

    Did you have any others you could contact?

    Like I said in email, this place is small but it has potential, yes?

    Now all we need is Xev and Wanderer spitting at each other...
    hee hee.

    (Still not sure about contacting Wanderer. Any thoughts? He probably wouldn't come anyway. He left in a snit from the other place.)

    *kowtows to the collective*

    Now. Show how interesting and witty you fuckers are.
    Or die. (as... Abraxas is wont to say.)

    Don't.

    Raaandom reference ... See Smilla's sense of snow (haven't read the book myself though).

    Capitalist.

    Question: What does a capitalist do when he finds that what he had been relying on for so long, is gone, and is available nowhere else?

    See Smilla's sense of snow
    Bubbling cauldron of headnoise. Vomits forth a memory.
    I'm being reminded of a story I read in high school english class.
    It was about a boy who would sit in his room and each day the snow would be closer and closer until one day he woke up and the snow was everwhere, covering everything.

    Nobody in class understood (or liked) this story. The teacher was quite perturbed as she explained to us what it was a metaphor for.
    Autism.
    At the time I had no interest in autism and even less of an interest in english class and this story in particular. But, I sometimes wonder what I would make of it with a more mature and questing mindset.

    I would say that I feel the author of the story didn't understand autism. It would seem that she (or he) equated the outward symptoms of autism as a deadening of the senses. A partition being laid down between the autist and the world. This was an old story and perhaps this was state of the art knowledge of the disorder back then. But nowadays, we know that autism is actually a heightening of sensation. An overwhelming which forces the autist to change how he/she interacts with his environment.

    So. For the story to work, it would need to be revamped so that the snow was so bright, shiny, and full of echoes that the boy was blinded and deafened by the cacaphanous uproar.


    Freewheeling associative vortex:
    Back then I had no idea what autism was. I remember a public service announcement type commercial that 'explained' it. It showed a boy playing ball and being happy blah blah blah. But then he was sitting on the steps of his home and someone tossed a basketball at him and he caught it but just let it drop. Drop. Drop. Down the steps.

    The viewpoint at the time was focused entirely on the outward effects. On the dissociation. The loneliness of the family. Funny. When you think about it. They made it about the effect of the disorder on everyone but the one suffering from the disorder.

    (Aside: For some reason this commercial image is linked in my mind with the Church of Latter Day Saints. The commercials began to air in my little town at the same time and had many similarities in form... Strange.)
    Question: What does a capitalist do when he finds that what he had been relying on for so long, is gone, and is available nowhere else?
    Buy the place on credit. Evict the tenants. Renovate. Sell for a profit.
    Kidding.

    (I don't understand why you specify a capitalist.)

    Because Abraxas is totally pro-capitalism.
    So I want to find -- but not from her in particular, I mean no personal dispute whatsoever -- what the capitalistic argument is in the situation of complete depletion of resources.

    Pillage.

    You're referring to Sciforums being down and this wandering of its people.
    So what do we do?

    The same thing a benign tumor does when malnourished. Metastasize.

    You liking so far? We can't say fuck or shit or eat my feces.

    Everyone at heart is capitalist, no matter the veneer.

    That's not my point.

    You can't go bloody pillaging when the resources are completely depleted. Duh.

    This is what a capitalist does? He metastasizes?

    You most certainly can when there are resources there for the taking.
    Sciforums is down.
    This place isn't.
    So, the power struggle calls for the sacking of the next village without destroying all its resources- like a stupid Viking before Normandy.

    Hence, this coup.
    History teaches you the Indo-European. Which is in essence, a capitalist fever.

    This is what a capitalist does? He metastasizes?
    Uhm, yeah?
    Figuratively speaking.

    Yeah. I agree.
    It's a lot of posts if you actually had to go through and read them. Much easier and quicker if you don't. I mean, nobody could have posted anything halfway interesting broaching the subject of autism, could they?
    Nahh.

    I direct your attention to the first page of this thread. To a certain post in which I ramble on from the starting point of Water's mention of 'snow'.

    Blocked up?
    You're lying.
