Simbalogy

Rafiki: [after guiding Simba to a spot where he says will show him Mufasa] Look down there. Adult Simba: [looks into a pool of water] That's not my father. That's just my reflection. Rafiki: No, look harder.
[touches the water, as it ripples Simba's reflection changes to that of his father] Rafiki: You see? He lives in you.
Mufasa's ghost: [from above] Simba. Adult Simba: Father? Mufasa's ghost: [apears among the stars] Simba, you have forgotten me. Adult Simba: No. How could I? Mufasa's ghost: You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of Life.Adult Simba: I know what I have to do. But going back means I'll have to face my past. I've been running from it for so long. [Rafiki hits Simba on the head with his stick] Adult Simba: Ow! Jeez, what was that for? Rafiki: It doesn't matter. It's in the past.
[laughs] Adult Simba: Y…

Dissimulation is of no Avail

Image
"Fire destroys all sophistry, that is deceit; and maintains truth alone, that is gold. Truth at last cannot be hidden. Dissimulation is of no avail. Dissimulation is to no purpose before so great a judge. Falsehood puts on a mask. Nothing is hidden under the sun. Fire is to represent truth because it destroys all sophistry and lies; and the mask is for lying and falsehood which conceal truth." - Leonardo da Vinci


"Dissimulation is a form of deception in which one conceals the truth. It consists of concealing the truth, or in the case of half-truths, concealing parts of the truth, like inconvenient or secret information. Dissimulation differs from simulation, in which one exhibits false information. Dissimulation commonly takes the form of concealing one's ability in order to gain the element of surprise over an opponent.





"Francis Bacon has the following to say on the distinction between simulation and dissimulation, "Dissimulation, in the negative; when a ma…

1. QUADRIPLEGIC USES HER MIND TO CONTROL HER ROBOTIC ARM
At the University of Pittsburgh, the neurobiology department worked with 52-year-old Jan Scheuermann over the course of 13 weeks to create a robotic arm controlled only by the power of Scheuermann’s mind.
The team implanted her with two 96-channel intracortical microelectrodes. Placed in the motor cortex, which controls all limb movement, the integration process was faster than anyone expected. On the second day, Jan could use her new arm with a 3-D workspace. By the end of the 13 weeks, she was capable of performing complex tasks with seven-dimensional movement, just like a biological arm.
To date, there have been no negative side effects.

"I have something upon my conscience as a writer. Let me indicate precisely how I feel about it. There is something quite definite I have to say, and I have it so much upon my conscience that (as I feel) I dare not die without having uttered it. For the instant I die and so leave this world (so I understand it) I shall in the very same second (so frightfully fast it goes!), in the very same second I shall be infinitely far away, in a different place, where, still within the same second (frightful speed!), the question will be put to me: "Hast thou uttered the definite message quite definitely? And if I have not done so, what then?"

Watsky - The Moral of the story is (work)

I write till my fingers look like a bouquet of roses
you gotta bring yourself your flowers now in show biz
focus it's Quiet Coyote come on let's go kids
everybody get together with a study buddy and then talk about then fuck that I don't give
Because it's so big and explosive
but a lotta people don't live
they don't ever get a motive
but if you got a goal you gotta hold onto it that what hope is
If I didn't have it I would ask you where the rope is
work is my church and so the studio's the closest
I spit it sick until my cootie flow's the grossest
don't be so pissed just be focused on your own shit
cause we supercalifornialisticsexyandweknowsit/
you're not my business
I go for number one, not a top five finish
you can have a chicken pot pie
but I'm thinking that I'm gonna have another can of Popey's spinach
I'm rotweiler
pop my collar
when I pop my fur
you're on my nerves
mark my words
gotta put a leg up and then mark my turf


Work until I'm…
