Pouet épinglé

Hey since this is blowing up let me remind all of you that I literally wrote a book on this & related subjects.


Making bad puns and then learning hidden truths by taking them too seriously is, basically, the most human form of human intelligence. That's why we make fun of people for doing it. Dad jokes are the foundation of cognition.

Hot take: disambiguation in symbolic AI is probably a mistake, & we'd be better off with systems that pun uncontrollably because they operate on the locus of concepts rather than on their boundaries. You know, like a person.

Can somebody with access to SciAm or Nature summarize the substance of this SciAm article 'Subliminal Messages Can Cause Forgetting' for me? Is it just something stupid like 'priming can interfere with reencoding via jamais-vu'?

One upside of not being hot shit is that you don't have to worry about people doing things out of a desire to impress you. I can be pretty open with my unpopular opinions (and even phrase them in aggressive or provocative ways) because nobody cares what I think on the grounds that I think it -- I'm just a rando on the internet, so people only care about my opinions based on the degree to which they find them interesting.
