post-scarcity is how a society can become immortal. every civilization in history has died eventually, it's just as inevitable for societies as for individuals. finding ourselves in the late stage of one with some feasible potential to achieve its post-scarcity immortality, i think it's become a necessary development; literally a matter of life or death for billions of people. of course, in order to achieve immortality, a society must transform into one that's worthy of it

so far it's a few midi tracks and a couple of softsynths

i'm never sufficiently embarrassed by the current version of whatever i'm working on, only mortified by every prior version

how do songs work, anyway, like wtf are they even about?

this actually reminds me a lot of the kinds of dreams i sometimes have, going through abandoned industrial areas, covered in giant crumbling warehouses full of rusting machinery

this was kindof a mess that i hated until it suddenly seemed to come together at the end into something i actually liked, but then i kinda hate it again the next day, whoops

i love these crazy free softsynths!
this is mostly helm and a bit of yoshimi (and sometimes i also use amsynth to which this also applies), and they can go all kinds of fucking nuts on their sounds... it's sometimes problematic, cause they go to the point of glitching on some random playthroughs, and every time is different and not always optimal, but it gives them rich organic sounds that i love getting out of software midi...

remember back in the slow internet days, how youtube was mailed on dvds you had to send back?

there are a lot of vast open spaces in various abstract domains that people frequently treat as points or sets. it's like, my position and orientation in physical space is just whatever it happens to be at the time, though it might predominantly be in a space i consider home and in a direction relating to its furnishings, but it's free to go out and wander, to re-arrange the furniture, to move to another home. there's so much more than the known set of points, and we're not defined by any of it.

the only revolution that will work for good is one of education. no system or power structure will ever be adequate in and of itself, a sufficiently enlightened populace is required for a healthy society. and with such sufficiently enlightened populace, no particular institutionalized power structure will be necessary.
it's only a question of what stopgap/transitional measures can get us from here to there.
