I christen the word "Federati" as the people of the Fediverse. We are the Federati!

hey guys! it's Carl Sagan day today. My favorite book is Cosmos. Just now, I opened it at the chapter Encyclopaedia Galactica that showed hypothetical worlds. Rejoice, for we are (or will be) among such futuristic worlds! Sagan has influenced my excitement for positive SciFi stuff. He's the man!

and here's another book overview about Consciousness. Panpsychism (which I agree to) is mentioned. Yep, even a book about consciousness has some sliver of consciousness. meta! :)

first time I heard about Attention Schema theory to understand Consciousness. Interesting overview of 3 new books.

#PortfolioDay My name is Emerson and I'm a senior concept artist working in video games. I'm also working on my own personal project Tankhead, mecha designs that are currently being made into action figures.


i've been getting a hang of Into The Breach. It's a big change of pace from my previous high-speed, high-intensity game of Titanfall2.

"Welcome," the interviewer said, "please have a seat."
"Thank you."
"Right, as you know time engineering is still in it's-"
"-early days, yes. Only invented a year ago."
"We are looking for an experienced engineer."
"I've got five years' experience in the field."

I am left-handed. And I honestly tell you, that I really tried to be right-handed while growing up. (I can write with my right-hand because I forced myself during high-school) But i switched back to writing with my left. Other things I didn't even try to change, I punch & kick with my left, chopsticks on my left, etc. Because it felt so natural to me. But I still find it hard to believe that there are genetic predespositions and brain differences for lefties, even after reading this article.
