Re: Mad World
Around 1600 years ago, Saint Augustine suggested that humans stop procreating. He endorsed this, however, because he wanted to hasten the Last Judgement and the eternity of joy thereafter.

Good to hear.

It's awesome. The virtual environments alone, are worth the price. Everything else is gravy.

It's really beautiful.


Hats off to the genius minds that brought this tech manifest.

..

It's better than dreams.


I'm taking it slow. Like I do.

I just bought this.

Get all the virtual environments. They're in settings when you hit the Oculus button.

I hung out in the 'Quest dome' earlier. Shooting stars and Northern Lights in a house like I'll never own..or even walk in.

Re: Mad World
I'm living in absolute tech paradise due to this lockdown. But I love it. It's like I can go anywhere, into the mind of the internet or into a virtual world, I feel like I can explore the world in VR too. I don't mind it. Maybe it's not what life was like, but I am not anxious or sad. I feel good almost every day. That's amazing

I accidentally left mine on all night, so I'm charging it. It's pretty incredible. Did you find the different environments?

I've heard only good things about Beat Saber. Looks fun.

I have not tried it.

I have been trying to watch the 360 videos and tours but I'm running into buffering issues.

Not sure if server side or my internet isn't fast enough. All the other devices stream fine otherwise. 1dunno1

Might take it next door and see if it runs on Comcast better and then choose whether to change services.

When I change the quality to 'best'(which is what you want to watch it in) it won't play at all. I can watch it in 'auto' but it is pretty blurry at times. Sometimes it buffers out.

It's only an issue while streaming. The dinosaur adventures are breath taking.

 Quoting: aether

while interesting in their own merit within the differing contexts, i think the intent behind the statements are worlds apart


i once had to put down a constrictor i kept as a pet, a beautiful 7+ foot long redtail

i misjudged the progression of her recovery from the mistreatment, and left her unattended with prey... the rat fed upon her alive, exposing her spine to plain view

i felt it my responsibility, and the fact that exercising it within a state of ignorance might have made her suffering worse still haunts me to this day more than two decades later


i don't remember what i did to the rat, but i remember it was the crab apple tree's sandbox i grew up with that i felt should be her resting place

 Quoting: aether


they are not similar in the slightest degree

my father had the family dog that bit me in the face when i was 18 months old put down on the same day it happened; mars, my chart ruler, was transiting the dog star on that very day as well

i wonder at times what difference it might have made had i been given a chance to 'make amends' so to say, and learn to trust again after having been bitten

i am over 40 years old and still to this day, any breed of dog with a similar muzzle, i.e. malamute, husky, akita, shepard - including my younger tree's aussie - cause an immediate fight/flight response upon eye contact that i've merely adapted to with a dissociative reaction
