I sometimes get surprised at just how much I don't know. I also get surprised at just how much other people know. Like, people really know things, things I don't know that they figured out through time and effort. That used to scare me, but recently I think it's kind of wonderful.

Hello, I am Wistahe!

I'm rather new to using social media, so I'd appreciate any tips. I like programming C and have been trying to create AI programming languages for 5 years, but unfortunately nothing works out so I keep trying over and over and over again. I also like art, especially if it tries to do something new or revives forgotten, but cool ideas. If anyone has anything interesting at all to share that isn't too crazy (except in regards to the marvelous), please tell me!

Entropy isn't a complicated concept, it's just that nobody explains it very well and it depends on what you choose as variables to measure so it's subjective, but if you ignore variables which change significantly then certain statistical laws don't hold. Also it measures your own knowledge so you can't be an outside observer in some situations, which is why engineering is possible.

@wistahe Ah, the Triforce of academia. Tag yourself, I'm in the middle.

I've developed good study skills and a pretty good base of knowledge, but my networking skills are lacking. I can do the things, but I still need to learn how to communicate in the professional world! That's the next step for me now.

I'm tired of working with precise notions precisely, I want to work on vague notions precisely. Need to learn more math.

Recommend me a show to watch. Especially if it is really weird and artsy or old and obscure, but still charming.

The only problem is, how do you figure out what that things is like? The only way I can think of is you need some way to get something like work out of the system, and the way that thing is like will depend on the nature of the thing you use to get the work like thing out. So then you need three things, a notion of entropy, a notion of work (or utility or just something that depends on entropy change), and some thing that converts that entropy change into that work like thing. The thing though need not be ontologically new, it just be some specific object of a known type which differs from other objects of that type only in the rate of entropy conversion.

Derived being some logical combination of them, the thing you'll find is something at least as ontologically primitive as any other prior known variable and that's insane.

You know, a crazy things is that if you have a set of variables describing macroscopic properties of a system of many microscopic states and define entropy as a function of those variables, if entropy ever increases it means a variable exists that you haven't seen. The reason that's crazy is that it gives you a reliable way to predict the existence of things you don't know about and where you don't even know what they're like just using mathematics. You might say "X is the missing variable that causes entropy to increase" and then have an entirely new concept which is not "derived" from any of the old ones.

A really sus post is finally among us 

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

I had two philosophical conversations today. I realized just how much I talk with my hands when I get excited!
