SWAT Raid on Missouri

May 6th, 2010 No comments

I was totally shocked after watching this video:

I copy and paste from the original source:

SWAT team breaks into home, fires seven rounds at family’s pit bull and corgi (?!) as a seven-year-old looks on.

They found a “small amount” of marijuana, enough for a misdemeanor charge. The parents were then charged with child endangerment.

So smoking pot = “child endangerment.” Storming a home with guns, then firing bullets into the family pets as a child looks on = necessary police procedures to ensure everyone’s safety.

Just so we’re clear.

This is a really strange country where I live in.

Cómo vivir la Vida, por Andrés Poole

  • vas a un cajero automático y haces cola. cuando te toca tu turno no sacas dinero.
  • tienes las manos heladas y las pones bajo un chorro de agua caliente
  • te estiras en el suelo y miras el techo. Piensas en cómo se vería el suelo estando estirado en el techo
  • te mandas e-mails a ti mismo
  • cuando algo duele, exploras el dolor hasta que te parece que te vas a morir
  • acumulas mucha saliva en la boca y luego escupes desde lo alto de un edificio en llamas. No lo logras apagar.
  • viene el agua, tú flojito
  • recuerdas que estás respirando y en los siguientes 10 minutos no puedes dejar de pensar en cada inspiración que das.
  • si estás alterado, mejor corta una cebolla y llora un rato

A Computer Scientist’s View of Life, the Universe, and Everything

January 9th, 2010 No comments

With this great title (A Computer Scientist’s View of Life, the Universe, and Everything), Jürgen Schmidhuber presents a fascinating scientific paper that tries to find an answer to the question “Is the universe computable?

You can find the paper here.


And here there are some great quotes:

The Great Programmer does not worry about computation time. Nobody presses Him. Creatures which evolve in any of the universes don’t have to worry either. They run on local time and have no idea of how many instructions it takes the Big Computer to compute one of their time steps, or how many instructions it spends on all the other creatures in parallel universes.

Possible limitations of the Great Programmer. He does not need not be very smart. For instance, in some of His universes phenomena will appear that humans would call life. The Great Programmer won’t have to be able to recognize them.

The Great Programmer reappears. Several of the Great Programmer’s universes will feature another Great Programmer who programs another Big Computer to run all possible universes. Obviously, there are infinite chains of Great Programmers. If our own universe allowed for enough storage, enough time, and fault-free computing, then you could be one of them.

More than 2000 years of European philosophy dealt with the distinction between body and soul. The Great Programmer does not care. The processes that correspond to our brain firing patterns and the sound waves they provoke during discussions about body and soul correspond to computable substrings of our universe’s evolution. Bitstrings representing such talk may evolve in many universes. For instance, sound wave patterns representing no- tions such as body and soul and “consciousness” may be useful in everyday lan- guage of certain inhabitants of those universes. From the view of the Great Pro- grammer, though, such bitstring subpatterns may be entirely irrelevant. There is no need for Him to load them with “meaning”.

Conclusion. By stepping back and adopting the Great Programmer’s point of view, classic problems of philosophy go away.

I really enjoyed reading all of this. However, it’s sad to my religion beliefs not to have found anything related to a Flying Spaghetti Monster on this paper.

It’s a tradition to this blog to list some of the achievements/facts/trips/caca that happened throughout this falling year to my humble monkey personae.

Chronologically, of course.

Feliç any a tothom / Happy new Year / Feliz año a todos!

Finally, the Apocalypse has started. Specifically in South Africa, where the traffic cameras have captured this punishment of the Flying Spaghetti Monster:

Hell On Earth while I’m coding like a real code monkey! Hell Yeah!

I was thinking about bringing my Taylor in the plane to SF. After watching this video I think I should think twice before doing anything stupid…
