Comment: Catholic Child Abuse... For God (Score 1) 355

The priest class abducted the psychedelic sacraments that constituted man's ritual diet, taking knowledge of god from us, and claimed to have it hidden in reserve somewhere. The priests claimed to be able to barter with us for knowledge of god, the most precious thing we ever knew, so we started giving them everything we had, hoping for scraps of it. Knowledge of god was the most precious thing we ever knew. Priests are the ultimate muggers and cheats, the first capitalists. And what they claim to be trading with, their currency, is knowledge of god they in reality no longer have, but we miss it so badly, we'll give them anything in supplication to the lie

So they made the sacrament a placebo, the Eucharist, and told us the closest we'll come to god on our own is reading the Bible

You can still take mushrooms or acid and know god in your home, initiate yourself into adulthood the way man always has done, and have religion back, a living religion, not a 2000-years-dead one. That's all I need to say about this

+ - Reddit officially bans subreddits dedicated to sexualizing children-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Earlier today, forum members of the comedy website Something Awful coordinated a mass-message to websites, members of government, and media outlets about Reddit's lenience towards subreddits containing sexualized images of people under the age of 18 (commonly referred to as "jailbait"). Hours after the campaign began, Reddit admins expressly banned the content and banned several subreddits, including r/jailbaitarchives, r/truejailbait, and r/preteen_girls."

It's a great way to teach yourself about evolution and neural nets, both of which I think are mind-expanding to understand.

Well, I forked Critterding at the end of 2009 to make a richer evolver called telepathic-critterdrug. There are numerous small new features and fixes but most importantly, I added five types of mind-altering drugs for them to distinguish from food, in the hopes that they would develop a ritual diet including them like ancient man, use them for utility like by favouring stimulants for faster foraging, or have an accelerated rise to language, art and religious feeling by dint of occasional intoxication.

So I have shown that evolved software can have its performance improved by being put on speed. A pretty amazing result. But so that I'd have a window into their creativity, I added a digital backstore or canvas that they evolve connections into, and move a pen around, in addition to having morphic fields calculated there automatically. So they can evolve a form of cybernetic telepathy, and collaborate on a true-colour animation 1024 frames long, while eating psychedelics, opiates and other mood-modifiers. You can then view this animation a number of ways

It's a toy, but it evolves resilient bio-inspired neuro-controllers that do homing and self-preservation. So if you run it long enough, maybe the Army shows up. Happy hacking!"

+ - Robotic Telepaths Select Between Food and Drugs, D->

brilanon writes "So we have an evolution lab called Critterding where robotic shapes evolve to locomote and seek food using an eye, in a simple physics sandbox. Neural nets are designed by natural selection to respond to vision and move around in a competition to get food the fastest. No scores are kept, the critters' only goal is to reproduce and propagate their design. In this way you can slowly grow intelligent software controllers for your robots, resilient homing programs that socialize and paint, on a telepathic digital backstore that interconnects their brains like Rupert Sheldrake's morphic fields.

Sheldrake is a contemporary of Terence McKenna whose ideas about the role of drug foods in the emergence of language, spirituality and art influenced my decision to make critterdrug significantly. My program implements some ideas of both thinkers on evolution and biology. So it stands apart, but Critterding has moved on too and is worth trying on its own. Good luck, flamoot"

Submitted by brilanon
brilanon (1121645) writes "Critterdrug is an evolving robot simulator in physics, with eyesight, that just turned two years old. I've uploaded a new species today, to try in a sandbox, which demonstrate eyesight, socialization, homing and various responses to food, particles, danger and the four types of drugs.

Source is available for Linux and Windows binaries are provided for a recent version at the web page for Critterdrug.

Full disclosure: Critterdrug is a port of a Belgian A-Life lab called Critterding"
