Does Frog Exist?
    #2372969 - 02/23/04 07:07 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

There is much talk bantered about about a mysterious feminine deity that appears and disappears on this forum dispensing wisdom from on high. How do we know that this entity actually exists and is merely not a hoax?

If you question the deity's existence, you are not spiritualy ready for the truth. Say ten "Hail Marys", an "Our Father" and whip yourself with a rolled up scripture. Then, when you are ready, a master will present himself to you and unveil the truth.

Oh, and don't be arrogant by questioning the master when he arrives. You will know the truth when you are able to accept anything (no matter how moronic it may seem to pre-lobotomized people) on the word of another.

I need resolve to the Mixomatosis/Positronius scandal before I can entertain notions that Frog is a puppet or a hoax.

The Mixomatosis/Positronius scandal? What's that? Does it have anything to do with the Superbowl?

I think they were one of the same. Maybe an ISP check could confirm this.

Copied from www.rawilson.com
____________________________

This may not seem startling to gamers, but it sure woke me up; I learned about it on Law and Order last Sunday.

A type of program called a"bot " can play a computer game "just like a human" and in the style of any chosen human, given enough skill on the part of the bot-maker.

It seems to me this surpasses virtual reality and approaches electronic cloning. After all, the bot can go on playing after the human has "died."

A bot can also exist which, like an art forgery, seems to have the style and habits of a certain human but actually emerged from the brain of a clever faker.

This seems to me like virtual virtual reality and electronic immortality of a sort. If a bot plays chess like Alekhine, in what sense can we call Alekhine totally "dead"?

More: computer tech in general as brought us to the stage where producing a photo of a crime or even a moving picture of it does not prove a damned thing anymore. "I saw it with my own eyes" has become a bad joke.

I begin to feel that Maybe Logic will soon replace the Aristotelian either/or, not because of my books or Korzybski's or von Neumann's. but because virtual reality and artificial intelligence have destroyed certitude and left us with only degrees of probability.

BTW, do you feel absolutely sure "Robert Anton Wilson" wrote this and not some gol-danged bot?

How do we know YOUR not a hoax Swami? I think alot of people would agree that alot of the stuff you spew is bullshit, but the same could be said about anyone eh? As far as proving a posters existance? Lets not get on the topic of what defines existance, and how do you exist...

Yes, I absolutely had to go look up "namaste".

"In Sanskrit "Namas" means, "bow, obeisance, reverential
salutation." It comes from the root Nam, which carries meanings
of bending, bowing, humbly submitting and becoming silent. "Te"
means "to you." Thus "namaste" means "I bow to you." the act of
greeting is called "Namaskaram," "Namaskara" and "Namaskar" in
the varied languages of the subcontinent."

Interesting history on it, and its comparison to the American hand-shake. http://www.flex.com/~jai/articles/namaste1.html

namaste, recalcitrant

Just in case you guys are serious, PM me for an office interview.  But make sure you bring your legal woes and checkbook with you.  :grin:

Yeah, I have no life. Thanks for pointing it OUT, just in case no one noticed! Actually, this is my life. This, my kids, law, my boyfriend in TX, and, uh, oh! God! (I'll bet He hates when I do that!)
