          • reductionist
        • problem-solving approach that most of modernity employs to tackle wicked problems,

      for - quote - progress trap - Nora Bateson

      quote - progress trap - Nora Bateson - (see below) - it's really easy to get distracted by the alarms that are ringing - and like you said, there are many that pulls us into reaction mode - that has been long steeped in industrial responsiveness - which is to the first order - that is, if something is happening we want to stop that thing from happening - whatever it is, whether it's - a refugee crisis or - a nuclear war threat or a this or a that - and that first order response does not take into account - the next and the next and the next order of consequences - so it's a kind of thinking that is very much appropriate for - engineering, - for building machines - but it's not appropriate for complex living systems

    1. Well said. But then why are so many prominent voices, business interests, and documentaries about Regenerative Ag pitching wildly unrealistic levels of carbon removal as the primary benefit?

Aus unerschlossenen Feldern sollen 230 Milliarden Barrel Öläquivalent gefördert werden - im klaren Widerspruch zum Pariser Abkommen. Durch Ausbeutung neuer Lager werden bis 2025 voraussichtlich 70 Gt CO<sub>2</sub> und damit 17% des Budgets für das 1,5° Ziel ausgestoßen.

      adjacency - between - progress - progress trap - maladaptive - cultural evolution - attention - focus of attention - Exploring this statement further, it isn't just that it is our dualistic thinking applied here is a problem - but that it is the very nature of human analytic reasoning coupled with our innate ability to focus our attention which requires a deep unpacking - For to focus on an object of attention - is something we can only accomplish by defocusing on everything else - Indeed, it is the very act of attention on the one, that is inextricably accompanied by the act of inattention of the many - Our body, and that of many other organisms is evolutionarily designed - to focus our attention in our field of view on emergent phenomena that is salient to our survival - The nature of reductionist-type research - which is to say, most research - is that we continue applying this evolved adaptive behavior, even though cultural evolution (ie. progress) has accelerated exponentially to such an extent - that this same biologically evolved behavior has become maladaptive in the context of modernity

    1. I'm not sure if I should write it in the answer directly, but I could also say that when an OP simply rolls back an edit without preemptively stating any reasoning in a comment etc., that tends to create the impression that OP is misguidedly claiming "ownership" of the content or feels entitled to reject changes without needing a reason.
    2. In fact, I think this self-answered Q&A of yours was already quite good by the standards of the site, and very useful - I've used it to close other duplicates several times. As someone who wears a "curator" hat around here, I want to make questions like this even better - as good as they can be - and make it clear to others that this is the right duplicate target to use when someone else asks the same question.
    3. Then I gave the question a longer, more descriptive title: I made it an actual question (with a question mark and everything), and replaced the term "lazy evaluation" with a more concrete description. The goal is to make the question more recognizable and more searchable. Hopefully this way, people who need this information have a better chance of finding it with a search engine; people who click through to it from a search page (either on Stack Overflow or from external search) will take less time to verify that it's the question they're trying to answer; and other curators will be able to close duplicates more quickly and more accurately. This edit also improves visibility for some related questions (and I made similar changes elsewhere to promote this one appropriately).

    1. It does provide an answer. The issue is that the Google form validates that the user has input a valid looking URL. So he needs to input an arbitrary, but valid URL, and then add that to /etc/hosts so his browser will resolve it to the address of his devserver. The question and answer are both fine as is and don't require any critique or clarification.

    1. spoken by a dog, he is not misreading the author's intention but misreading the actual words of the actual poem. Again, this is a question of the text, not of the author.

      This statement brings up what Professor Machado said on the first day of class, that other people can see different things in passages and that we should always find evidence to support our thoughts. It's okay to see different things. My favorite part about literature is that it is up for interpretation. There is no definite answer.

    2. Perhaps other people’s poems do what they tell them to, but mine rarely do.

      I feel that. The same thing happens to me with the plot of short stories. It's always fun when you are surprised by your own writing.

    3. I have neither the desire nor the ability to discern an author's intentions.

      Personally, when I read, I have the opposite approach. I could care less what is written. I am more interested in how the writing makes both the author and the reader feel. I want to know what the writer was thinking when they wrote it. I want to know what feelings and ideas inspired them.

    4. I’m sure every writer has had the experience, sometimes frustrating, often exhilarating, of the work taking off in a completely different direction than that which he or she “intended.”

      This is incredibly frustrating at least for me. It is also interesting to see what comes out of it though.

    1. Reporting a hadith is a heavy responsibility. Integrity and accuracy is incumbent upon us when relaying hadith to avoid incurring sin and perpetuating misinformation.

    2. Narrated Abu Huraira(May Allah be pleased with him) :

      I said: "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! Who will be the luckiest person, who will gain your intercession on the Day of Resurrection?" Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said: O Abu Huraira! "I have thought that none will ask me about it before you as I know your longing for the (learning of) Hadiths.

    2. Upper/lower refers to the root direction, and flat/sharp clarifies whether the interval between the roots is a major or minor third

      SIDENOTE: Do you know Scott Murphy's MnM system? It's a much more powerful and term-heavy system where the first M represents the quality of the first chord and the last M is the quality of the last chord. The "n" is the number of half steps between the two chord roots.

      • M3M = Upper Flat mediant
      • M4M = Upper Sharp mediant
      • M8M (or M-4M) = Lower Flat mediant
      • M9M (or M-3M) = Lower Sharp mediant

      Anyhow, just thought I'd mention it but it's not a suggestion for this chapter.

    3. The R-relation connects C-major and A-minor The L-relation connects C-major and E-minor

      The area seems like more of discussion about Neo-Riemannian theory than the mediant approach this chapter is laying out.

    1. is beyond all the dominant terms

      index n1 is larger than the indices for all the dominating terms in the sequence.



    1. Die Regenfälle der letzten Tage werden nur einen kleinen Teil der Folgen ausgleichen, welche die lange andauernde Trockenheit in Österreich hat. Es sind dringend Maßnahmen gegen die Versiegelung von Böden und die Verschwendung von Wasser z.B. durch private Pools nötig. https://www.derstandard.at/story/2000145470485/der-regen-kommt-die-wassernot-bleibt

    1. the basic idea in the procedure is tostart at node 1 and fan out along the tree arcs using the thread indices to computeother node potentials.

      The starting node is, the first element from thread. First node from the in-order tree traversal.

    1. The definition willinvolve a general field K, but in functional analysis, K will be R or C.The elements of K are called scalars; hence in our case they will ber.eal or complex numbers.

      This is probably very important due to the fact that, both field is complete, and they are equipped with norm. And of course, the reals and the complex are technically also a vector field with dim = 1.

      The total orderness property is probably important for vector fields in functional analysis.

    2. subspaces of a normed spaceX (of any dimension)

      I just discovered that the subspaces in vector spaces are very different compare to metric spaces.

      1. A subspace of a metric space just have to be a metric space.
      2. A subspace of a vector space will still have to retain the vector space structure. But if it's viewed as a metric space, this doesn't have to be the case.

      Also take note that this is talking about any spaces of dimensions.

    1. it is for the parents to guide them frominfancy in the ways of virtue, propriety, and worthy Christian conduct, so that when grown up they may be thestaff of their parents’ old age, and the glory of their posterity; and to force them to study this or that science I donot think wise, though it may be no harm to persuade them; and when there is no need to study for the sake ofpane lucrando, and it is the student’s good fortune that heaven has given him parents who provide him with it, itwould be my advice to them to let him pursue whatever science they may see him most inclined to

      This may be the best way to teach children, nowadays.

    2. I, Senor Don Quixote,” answered the gentleman, “have one son, without whom, perhaps, I should count myselfhappier than I am, not because he is a bad son, but because he is not so good as I could wish. He is eighteen yearsof age; he has been for six at Salamanca studying Latin and Greek, and when I wished him to turn to the study ofother sciences I found him so wrapped up in that of poetry (if that can be called a science) that there is no gettinghim to take kindly to the law, which I wished him to study, or to theology, the queen of them all. I would like him tobe an honour to his family, as we live in days when our kings liberally reward learning that is virtuous and worthy;for learning without virtue is a pearl on a dunghill. He spends the whole day in settling whether Homer expressedhimself correctly or not in such and such a line of the Iliad, whether Martial was indecent or not in such and suchan epigram, whether such and such lines of Virgil are to be understood in this way or in that; in short, all his talkis of the works of these poets, and those of Horace, Perseus, Juvenal, and Tibullus; for of the moderns in our ownlanguage he makes no great account; but with all his seeming indifference to Spanish poetry, just now his thoughtsare absorbed in making a gloss on four lines that have been sent him from Salamanca, which I suspect are for somepoetical tournament.”

      I think Don Quixote thinks this is not why we study poetry.

    3. Don Quixote turned to look and found that it was true, and rejoicing exceedingly, he concluded that they weretwo armies about to engage and encounter in the midst of that broad plain;

      His bravery is his biggest trait.

    4. it was not right thata horse belonging to a knight so famous, and one with such merits of his own, should be without some distinctivename

      The question of identity is always intriguing.

    5. ed away by theintense enjoyment he found in these pleasant fancies, he sethimself forthwith to put his scheme into execution

      This is what I like about Don Quixote. He think of what he wants to do first and execute it, instead of what he can do, because I know that if I only think of what I can do in the beginning, then I will achieve nothing.

    6. In short, his wits being quite gone, he hit upon the strang-est notion that ever madman in this world hit upon, and thatwas that he fancied it was right and requisite, as well for thesupport of his own honour as for the service of his country,that he should make a knight-errant of himself,

      Mostly, ambition is perceived as mad, but being mad is not always a bad thing.

    7. For how shall I be able, said he, to rule over others, that havenot full power and command of myself?

      Many leader lead other very well, but lose control of their own life.

    1. Because of that great longing to excel, 80whereon my heart was set, I certainlywould not have been so courteous while I lived.Here is the forfeit paid for pride like this;nor should I be here yet, had it not beenthat, while I still could sin, I turned to God.

      Doing nothing is also a sin. Dante thinks you should stand up for your ideal.

    2. I’ve shown him all the people who are guilty;and now I mean those spirits to reveal, 65who ’neath thy jurisdiction cleanse themselves

      Dante gives sinners a second chance, kind of humanism.

    3. Great sorrow filled my heart on hearing this,because I knew of people of great worth,who in that Borderland suspended were.

      He still not understand that God is justice itself.

    4. against me this one seemed to be advancingwith head erect and with such raging hunger,that even the air seemed terrified thereby—and of a she-Wolf, which with every lustseemed in her leanness laden, and had caused 50many ere now to lead unhappy lives.

      This imply that lust is the most difficult one for humans to overcome.

    5. When half way through the journey of our lifeI found that I was in a gloomy wood,because the path which led aright was lost.

      This is also Dante reminding himself.

    6. I had his hair wrapped round my hand already,and more than one shock had I plucked from him,while he was barking, with his eyes turned down

      Now Dante fully accepted the fact that God is justice. Those people deserve to be punished like this.

    7. And the King said, By Allah, I will not kill her until I hear the remainder of her story.

      To change people, you need to have knowledge first.

    8. And she certainly determined [to seduce] him, and he would have inclined to her had he not seen the proof[i.e., sign] of his Lord. And thus [it was] that We should avert from him evil and immorality. Indeed, he wasof Our chosen servants

      This scene does show Joseph's defect, but it is also human defect.

    9. He said, “O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers or they will contrive against you a plan. In-deed Satan, to man, is a manifest enemy.

      This is different than the plot of the Hebrew Bible.

    10. Bring us a Qur’ān other than this or change it.” Say, [O Muhammad], “It is not for me to change it onmy own accord. I only follow what is revealed to me.

      He does not change the law of God, too. This is somewhat like Jesus.

    11. Indeed, your Lord is God, who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then established Himselfabove the Throne, arranging the matter [of His creation].

      Quran has the same creation with that of bible.

    1. But now the queen, who fear’d for Turnus’ life

      This is Turnus ignores the advice of the queen, and insist on going fighting with Aeneas , so the queen is worried about he

    2. ‘T is Pallas, Pallas gives this deadly blow.”

      When Aeneas saw the golden belt, he recalled Pallas. This made him out of his mind and take revenge for Pallas by killing Turnus.

    3. Libyan lion

      Virgil used personified method to describe the situation that Turnas was facing and portrayed him as a Libyan lion chased by the swains.

    4. chariot

      a carriage with two wheels that was pulled by horses and was raced and used in battle in ancient times (二輪戰車)

    5. But now he struggles with unequal fate

      Turnus’s sister don’t want to see her brother be killed by Trojans. So she pray to God

    1. One of the main purposes of the Freedmen’s Bureau, however, was to redistribute lands to formerly enslaved people that had been abandoned and confiscated by the federal government. Even these land grants were short-lived. In 1866, land that ex-Confederates had left behind was reinstated to them.

      I think this was very unfair the government gave land to newly freed people only to snatch it back to the original owners they had confiscated it from.

    1. It is interesting to think that physical barriers can cause different phenotypes to form, which leads to speciation. I wonder if the opposite could happen when different species are brought close enough together and evolve to have similar traits that a advantageous to a common environment. After all, these species are meant to share common ancestor.

      What has been done to improve this situation since this post six years ago?

    1. I regularly check in on comments for this website and will generally respond!
    2. Although Hugo works with a number of commenting systems, I’ve chosen to use the social annotation software Hypothesis as the social layer on this website.

    1. These case studies show that we cannot understand the mobility of gods simply in terms of the mobility of people.

      "The notion of «religious mobility» has also been proposed as a means of encompassing both religious change consequent on the mobility of people" from earlier in this article, pg 112. I feel this transition is a technique of writing the author implemented well. I did not think I would be introduced to a new concept and then read contradicting points. The author showed critical thinking and provided a solid argument.

    2. tendency to use modern Christianity as an analytical archetype or paradigm

      While Christianity is definitely a major religion both past and present, I think it is worth noting that Alexander the great ruled before it was invented, therefore making it obsolete to his part of history.

    3. sis came to be associated with human fertility, with healing, with the passage to the underworld and with travel by boat.

      Isis original Egyptian name is Aset, translating to "queen of the throne." This would definitely help spread her popularity. Perhaps she is nationally worshipped because every culture ties a significance to death and healing.

    1. Only recentlyhave we rediscovered the concept of the self, and too many of ushave still not absorbed James’s insights into the distinctionamong the material, social, and spiritual (conscious) selves (al-though few of us have had to contend with a Swedenborgianfather who rejected all notions of selfhood).

      This is surprising and perplexing to me because as early as Descartes he said and I quote "Cogito, ergo sum" meaning I think, therefore I am. Selfhood and consciousness shouldn't be a recently discovered concept.

    2. Wundt preached the inaccessibility ofthose phenomena to experimental and by implication ‘‘scien-tific’’ study.

      Yes! because the mind cant be experimented like other practical sciences, only through observation and studying can we learn more about the human mind.

    3. Henoted that whereas psychology must be based on the results ofethnology and anthropology, mental development may stillbe the same for different cultures or that similar cultures may,psychologically speaking, represent different stages of ‘‘mentalculture.’’

      I agree, from what i gathered in my past developmental psychology course we all share the same consensus that mental development is the same from culture to culture but the mental culture in other societies vary.

    4. He related the three broad topics Sprache, Mythus,and Sitte (language, mythology, and culture) to the individual-psychological aspects of representation, emotion, will, andhabit.

      Intriguing.. I can see where the connection is possibly being made, that language and culture have an impact on our psyche? Language can focus our aspect on specific aspects of the world and influences perception and culture effects us developmentally.

    1. Und dann kam die alte Großmutter auch noch lebendig heraus und konnte kaum atmen. Rotkäppchen aber holte geschwind große Steine, damit füllten sie dem Wolf den Leib, und wie er aufwachte, wollte er fortspringen, aber die Steine waren so schwer, dass er gleich niedersank und sich totfiel.

      Das Jäger ist der Held für die Großmutter und Rotkäppchen! Das ist sehr interessant.

    2. Komm, Rotkäppchen, da hast du ein Stück Kuchen und eine Flasche Wein, bring das der Großmutter hinaus; sie ist krank und schwach und wird sich daran laben.

      Ein Stück Kuchen und eine Flasche Wein ist zwei sehr fraglich Produkte zu einem kranken älteren Menschen bringen! Das ist nicht gut.

    1. The goal of this text is topresent a version of the history of psychologythat resists the traditional storylines of greatachievements by eminent people or schools ofthought that rise and fall in the wake of scientificprogress and that instead attempts to reveal thecomplex trajectory of psychology as a sociallyembedded set of theories and practices thatboth reify and reflect the contexts from whichthey arise and to which they return.

      This seems to be the key idea of the authors writing. Identifying that their approach to the history of Psychology will differ from the usual "traditional storylines" and to bring in a more complex, messy(?) and overlapping narratives that reflects the contexts that these psychological knowledge emerge from.

    2. he object of interest was notthe normally functioning, but the abnormallyfunctioning human mind.

      It seems like the different subject of study, in this case of "normally functioning" and "abnormally functioning" has shaped the models for experiments and the role expectations for observer and participant even though both models were developed in the same time period.

    3. How does the historian decidewho is, or was, important enough tobe included? That is, who should be at the center of the story,who should be at the periphery, andwho should be left out entirely?

      These are really great questions that are raised by the authors. Prior to this, I have not really considered or questioned who gets chosen to "represent" Psychology or why we are learning about them (e.g. Freud, Watson) over other theorists. This also relates to the reading by Conolly-Smith on Historiography which brings up the importance of questioning "who writes history, with what agenda in mind, and towards what ends?“ demonstrating that there is a purpose to the Psychological knowledge that gets recorded and remembered.

    4. What Morawski’s analysis demonstrates is notthat reflexivity renders experimentation impos-sible in psychology but that an understandingof its effects is sometimes required to make ourinterpretations of psychological data more mean-ingful.

      This is helping me with understanding some of my conundrum with the problems of not being able to replicate lab results of psychology experiments in the real world. Perhaps if more studies consider Morawski's consideration of reflexivity it can better help us with interpreting the results of our experimental studies?

    5. Psychology has been actively involved in creat-ing its own subject matter, has often changed thesubject matter that it has taken up in complexways, and has arguably created constructs thatwould (probably) never have existed without it.

      Ah! I'm guessing this is why Psychology moved from the study of observable behavior only in Behaviorism to the study of the mind in Cognitive psychology approaches? The object of study seem to have shifted quite drastically even as we recognize both as part of Psychology; seems like Psychology has a broad and/or ever-changing definition based on what is interesting to the psychologists at that time?

    1. Your attempt should work. There is a mismatch in column name in your query though. The query uses col2 but the table is defined with col1.

      I would actually lean towards making this a comment, at least the typo fix part. But if you remove the typo fix part, all that's left is "should work", which I guess should be a comment too since it's too short to be an answer.

    1. Years ago, I helped build a storytelling platform called Hi (a simplification of its original name: Hitotoki, now shuttered and archived) and one of the things I’m most proud of our team having concocted is the commenting system. We had tens of thousands of users and almost no issues with harassment. You could comment on anyone’s story and your having commented would be public — a little avatar at the bottom of the page — but the comment itself would be private. This allowed folks to reap the public validation of engagement (“Whoa! So many comments!”) while simultaneously removing any grandstanding or attacks. It wasn’t quite messaging. It wasn’t quite commenting. It felt very much like a contemporary, lighter take on email, and in being so was a joy to use. Here’s what the bottom of an entry looks like: "Commenting" on Hitotoki

      I like the design and set up for this feature. Perhaps something for the IndieWeb to pick up? In some sense the implementation of Webmention-based likes, bookmarks, and facepiled mentions on my site is just this sort of design.

      The anecdotal evidence that there was little harassment is a positive sign for creating such a thing.

    1. Timezones and cultures: If you have a geographically dispersed set of learners, any synchronous events will introduce timezone bias; additionally people may have variant weekend days, national holidays, and other important days they cannot meet Families and busy people: If you teach mostly non-traditional students who have either jobs or families, their time may not be as flexible and they may struggle to commit to synchronous meetings. Recording meetings for them to watch later could work BUT they would have FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) and you would lose their active participation in those meetings Technical: If some of your learners have infrastructure issues (e.g., live in remote/rural areas or developing countries where bandwidth is low or unreliable) then audiovisuals will discriminate against them, more so if this is live audiovisual interaction. Even those with relatively stable infrastructure occasionally struggle with connectivity and/or with mic/headset working properly every single time they connect Language: If some learners are not native speakers of, or not fluent in, the language of instruction, then they may prefer the additional time needed to interpret and reflect before responding

      I guess there are some implicits here - i.e. that you are targeting the whole world equally. This is laudable but might not always be the case - this will then impact the technologies and approach one can take. It comes down to aims and objectives when one considers the audience. One size does not fit all.

    1. He said this to throw me off, but his deceit                                        370 could never fool me. I was too clever. And so I gave him a misleading answer:

      Another line of dialogue that would have had a god like Athena interject to suggest the use of cunning. In this case compared to the Iliad which gives us insight on how the author is different. Thoughts are described and this could be because the story revolves around Odysseus, a man who uses wit rather then strength which makes the author use more internal thoughts and explanations.

    2. As he spoke, our hearts collapsed, terrified by his deep voice and monstrous size. But still, I answered him and said:

      Compared to the Iliad this was the first case where emotions were used to describe a characters feelings before dialogue. This is usually done through the use of god characters.

    3. Resourceful Odysseus then replied to Alcinous:

      Epithets are often used with Odysseus and specifically when he is about to do an interaction with another character in the story.

    1. the number of daily visitors has averaged about 540.


    2. Some arts advocates have been encouraging politicians to allow museums to elevate their numbers, but there are no signs that the state plans to ease that restriction any time soon.

      I work at The High Line so this may be a bit different but this seems like a crazy thing to advocate for. Our capacity is 700 from beginning to end and even when it creeps up on 600 the pathways are uncomfortably full.

    3. And at the American Museum of Natural History, a visitor from Florida, Cheyenne Grant, 21, observed the emptiness: “It’s just us and the dinosaurs.”

      Interesting to see "visitor from Florida"

    1. the correction is appreciated, but please keep the reasoning behind the edit in the metadata text, or as a hidden comment in the source (using <!-- comment here --> syntax); putting it in huge bold print in the post itself can be considered defacement, and is probably why the initial suggestion was rejected.

    1. I just wrote a long, considered, friendly, and I hope helpful comment here but -- sorry, I have to see the irony in this once again -- your system wouldn't let me say anything longer tahn 1,500 characters. If you want more intelligent conversations, you might want to expand past soundbite.

      In 2008, even before Twitter had become a thing at 180 characters, here's a great reason that people should be posting their commentary on their own blogs.

      This example from 2008 is particularly rich as you'll find examples on this page of Derek Powazek and Jeff Jarvis posting comments with links to much richer content and commentary on their own websites.

      We're a decade+ on and we still haven't managed to improve on this problem. In fact, we may have actually made it worse.

      I'd love to see On the Media revisit this idea. (Of course their site doesn't have comments at all anymore either.)

    1. But note well, my friend, that all of these people are speaking to you with intelligence, experience, generosity, and civility. You know what’s missing? Two things: First, the sort of nasty comments your own piece decries. And second: You.


    2. Why can't there be more sites with solid commentary like this anymore? Do the existence of Twitter and Facebook mean whe can't have nice things anymore?

    1. Comments are enabled via Hypothes.is

      This may be the first time I've seen someone explicitly use Hypothes.is as the comment system on their personal website.

      I wonder if Matthew actively monitors commentary on his site, and, if so, how he's accomplishing it?

      The method I've used in the past as a quick and dirty method is Jon Udell's facet tool https://jonudell.info/h/facet/?wildcard_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fmatthewlincoln.net%2F*&max=100, though it only indicates just a few comments so far.

      Use cases like this are another good reason why Hypothes.is ought to support the Webmention spec.
