Also with Tao Te Ching and I Ching it really depends on the translator what the hell the translation says because you can interpret the Chinese characters in the original texts in lots of different ways. Chuang Tzu is more consistent.

Chuang Tzu:

Quote

Liu Ling [3rd c. C.E.] always indulged in wine and let himself be uninhibited. Sometimes he would take his clothes off and stay in his house stark naked. When people saw this, they criticized him. Ling said: "I take Heaven and Earth as my pillars and roof, and the rooms of my house as my trousers. Gentlemen, what are you doing by entering my trousers?"

Yes, I saw some really ugly translations, where they'd translate dao with "the principle" instead of just "dao" or "tao". Have to give Chuang Tzu a try when I'm in the mood

Whoooo I’m having a midlife crisis. I bought a Harley Davison and a leather jacket, ooohhh I’m such a rebel. Look I’ve grown a goatee and wear a bandanna. Fuck Off You Soppy Prick.

Get the drugs in, create a cult in your head, and follow it! And don’t come back.

Find your master Satan.

This article on Angel Dust is a fascinating insight into one of the best albums ever made.

Yes, that makes sense, but I'd guess that these traits get diffused by other genetic/epigenetic/social/cultural/biological factors and the changes contribute in a very unpredictable way to the overall personality of a human which makes predictions solely based on the seasonal cycle very vague if at all possible

I started watching this lecture collection on behavioural biology  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL848F2368C90DDC3D (playlist), which seems to be pretty good. Very easy to listen to as well, as the prof is good at speaking

yeah, i would agree. my problem with any theory that suggests that external/biological/non-personal factors shape consciousness isn't so much that i think the idea is outlandish, but that probably any one person has all sorts of different factors affecting them in different ways. The human mind is extremely complex, and these esoteric systems that attempt to model general patterns can only do so (at best) on a very general level.

and i've seen that bearded man come up in my yt suggestions for years now, i've gotta actually get around to watching that at some point

This is my goto recommendation for any of my app dates who seem remotely intellectually inclined.  Been milking it ever since I devoured it three summers ago.  By far the most compelling prof I've ever listened to.  Normally I tune out during lectures, but he keeps it engaging the whole way.

This is the Thai food thread.  We can allow tangential discussion of other SE Asian cuisine and food culture.  I do not want to hear about how you love Sriracha, you basic bitch.

It’s not bad, but very, very repetitive.

I will be 39 this year and I am seriously considering taking drum lessons once the plague has calmed down.

As someone who has a few extra years on my ears I’ll just say wear ear plugs or just forget the drum thing. Tinnitus SUCKS and really ruins quality of life and there is no cure.

      A puzzle for watmm.
       
      You awake to find yourself in a completely enclosed space measuring approximately 5' by 3' by 3'. There is a single source of light in the form of a battery powered led strip. A small black cat lies curled at your feet.
       
      Two questions.
       
      a) How did you get here?
      b) How will you escape?
       
      I will reveal the answers tomorrow night.

      Does anyone have any piercings? In particular nipple piercings.

      There's a dead cat in my front garden. Judging by its body position I believe somebody has placed it there deliberately. What does this mean? Will I be sleeping with the fishes?
       
      I was going to post a pic, but I know how sensitive some of you are. But pic on request.

      Yo,
       
      I have very bad posture. How do I correct it? Can anyone recommend a) specific gym exercises b) a yoga routine with all the hippy nonsense removed? My office chair is shit and I do the occasional 12 hour day and it's really not helping at the moment, has anyone tried the orthopaedic straps that you can get that force you into correct posture? Worth seeing a chiropractor/osteopath?
       
      Thanks,
      kaka
