23andme is hiding my extraterrestrial heritage why

The evil eye ancient cultures tried to ward off is probably just our simulation’s tracking algo

I guess my point from the last post is, (excluding absolute necessity/opportunity), it’s probably better to work jobs that give you skills to be independent living somewhere cheap vs in a rat race where nothing is ever paid off and the consequences of that life is ecological disaster consumption


Eg in order to have a middle class salary I have to live somewhere housing is unaffordable and forfeit time that could be spent learning how to not totally rely on consumer practice like buying prepped meals and clothing etc

Very satisfied with my work, but it hasn’t provided enough money for housing and hasn’t shown me a way to make my own housing/go off grid (or given me the time off to learn so). Genuinely looking into working construction or on solar bitcoin farms for developing these homestead skills. All my job has taught me is how to be dependent on consumption culture which is out of alignment personally.

Holy heck I followed 5 commands on a blog and beat a kernel panic.

📄 Lori Emerson, “Did We Dream Enough?” THE THING BBS as an Experiment in Social-Cyber Sculpture, 2020

“… with a PC, the right software, a phone line, and a modem, in theory anyone could not just participate in but help build this consensual hallucination. And perhaps it’s exactly this vision of cyberspace that we can bring back to 2020: small, vibrant online communities—like those exemplified by mesh networks—that are independently/communally owned and managed, whose technical infrastructure is intentionally modest, and whose slowness is fully embraced.”

after the world shut down i am emerging as something else

i don't know how the youths do it, watching their phone screens for constant bad opinions and attention seeking

Going out to see people when the city is half-open is like starting the windows 95 in safe mode. Feeling the simulation hard today.

The reason I don’t believe we make our own subjective reality isn’t because I’m a trained scientist but because of how frequently I throw something in the trashcan before remembering I forgot to add a bag
