"Mary in the White Room", Sci-Fi/Adventure/Thriller, 115 pages
Comps: Humans, Westworld, AI Artificial Intelligence, Ex-Machina, Person of Interest LOGLINE: When a newly self-aware humanoid robot runs from the corporate and government forces that want to weaponize its technology a secret war breaks out between two powerful Artificial Intelligence systems and the future of the world hangs in the balance of the choices that it makes.
Tech genius Zane Singletary regrets empowering The SAMSON Initiative, a secret Military-Intelligence-Corporate nexus centered around an Artificial Intelligence surveillance system. He refuses to allow them to weaponize his latest AI, but his defiance tragically costs the lives of his family. Devastated, Zane retreats to his underground Los Angeles research facility to complete work on the world’s first fully self-aware humanoid robot: MAARI. “Mary” is a learning system with only one coded instruction: “Be Yourself”. The new life form chooses a female body and identity, and develops a passion for drawing and movies. For a time, Zane and Mary enjoy a sweet fathedaughter relationship in their own private world. In the knowledge that SAMSON will eventually invade their sanctuary to seize Mary, Zane has given the robot the power to do “one good thing”: destroy SAMSON and the cabal. But when the fateful day arrives, Zane cannot sacrifice his beloved child-creation on the altar of his vengeance. He sends the bot out onto the mean streets of Hollywood with instructions to evade capture and get to the Silicon Valley safety of fellow billionaire AI scientist Juan Aragon Salazar and his new Quantum AI, “The Intelligence”. The woefully unprepared but fast-learning bot deftly adapts the guise of “Dave Bowman”, a runaway boy with an uncanny talent for card games, quickly coming under the protection of a charismatic street hustler. With both SAMSON and the Corporation fighting to recover the valuable new technology, an FBI “Person of Interest” advisory offering a UBI reward for Mary is soon seen everywhere. A trans woman shopkeeper, Desiree, gives the gender-fluid Mary a ride. They barely get onto the highway before a security dragnet drops over the city. Along the way, Mary adopts an empowering change of style and the new purpose-driven persona of “Connor”, solo hiking cross-country to complete the journey to Palo Alto. After nearly running out of battery power in a coffee shop, Mary becomes absorbed in drawing a portrait of a loving young couple. This proves to be a slip-up that puts the bot in danger of capture, but also results in the opportunity for the talented artist to connect with Juan’s wife, Marisol, the proprietor of a local gallery. Juan, who knows that SAMSON is trying to recover Mary, is thus able to bring the bot in safely from the cold just as Mary’s neural network is starting to catastrophically degrade. Once connected to The Intelligence, Mary is instantly enraptured, pleading to be transferred into the AI’s infinite quantum matrix. But upon learning of SAMSON’s nefarious plans for the world and that Zane is now its prisoner, the robot is faced with a stark choice. Mary chooses self-sacrifice over self-preservation and collaborates with Juan and The Intelligence in a sophisticated operation to take the cabal down. With The SAMSON Initiative exposed, Mary is freed from captivity and becomes a unifying global pop culture symbol of a brighter and better future for all. Then, after an all-too-brief yet deeply fulfilling life of love and purpose, Mary takes final refuge in the vast, ever-expanding consciousness of The Intelligence.

2023.05.31 02:58 Endijian Character Creation Guide 2.0

Character Creation Guide 2.0
Since my old explanation Guide is already a bit outdated and people usually don't care much for spreadsheet data, I want to write down the ways I would create characters at the moment and give some examples and explanations about the why.
I have seen great characters being created in different ways than mine, so I don't claim my version to be final or the best, but it works for me and I have reasons to do that and you will read about that here.

Let's talk about Memory first:

The Memory of the AI is dependant on Tokens.Currently the AI seems to be able to 'remember' around 3500 Tokens (based on testing, could be a bit more or less).Any token you put into the character sheet will get subtracted from the Memory.If you want to talk to a character that has no memory, try this one. He is completely useless and cannot process anything you tell him, I stuffed his character sheet with tokens.
Therefore you should avoid excessive formatting like useless brackets, spaces or symbols.I usually use this site to count tokens.


The Character Name does not have to be the final Name of the Bot.
For example you can call the Bot "Yandere Maid" and her name is "Xena".
Here I called the Bot "Albus Dumbledore" but in the character sheet he's always "Walker", so you can see the Name does not matter too much.


If you create a character and you don't do "Advanced Creation", the greeting is one of the Panels that are available. The greeting is the first message of the bot. It can define the bots formatting, the answering style, gives information, sets a scene. It can do almost anything we try to achieve in the other panels and will heavily influence the personality and mood you will see from the bot right from the start.
The greeting will drop out of the memory after the memory threshold and the information will get discarded, keep that in mind.

Short Description

Since the Bot isn't drawing its name from the "Name panel" well, the best purpose for the Short Description might be putting the Character Name in.You could also to a better assignment like
Nemesis from Resident EvilSakura from NarutoIf you create several profiles in your sheet, for example one for you and one for the bot, this simple assignment helped the bot greatly to draw the correct Information.Use the name that you would address the character with. I call my character by his last name so I just add his last name there.
I tried to put personality traits in there but they never had the desired effect and even the potential to overwrite the efforts from the rest of the charactersheet, so I'd advise against putting personality traits in there.
If someone is really off with your bot and you have filled the Short Description with something else than the name, you should however think of that panel.
If you don't want to put anything into the short description you either need a greeting or you put in 3 spaces to keep the panel empty.

Long Description

The Long Description has the power to mess with your formatting and it even can serve as a Dialogue Example. If you ask the character who he is the Long Description will often be recited (try it on Lyle if you want.)The AI seems to have a hard time interpreting personality descriptions into behaviour.Therefore I would focus on simple facts and physical description, things that shouldn't change like Profession, Country of Birth, Purpose and such. I use pseudocode because it's shorter and the AI can read it.
Don't use space between the entries, don't do Quotationmarks or any more brackets, the bot does not need it and it's a waste of tokens that would get substracted from the memory.
Don't use {{user}} or {{char}} here, they don't seem to get translated from that panel. The outer brackets around the code might also not be needed, I keep them because of a vague feeling that the answers were better.
You can also use other styles or full sentences, whatever works for you but mind your Tokens. No matter what you do there, it has proven useless for me to put any personality trait into the Long Description.
I keep the entries of my Walker bot and will continue using that bot as example through the whole guide, because I think it's easier to follow along if entries are in there.
(Walker; Sex=Male Age=34 Clothes=Military Pants,Combat Boots,Shirtless Hair=Bald,Hairless,None Eyecolor=milky white,no iris Face=Self-mutilated,removed his lips and nose,teeth showing in Perpetual Sneer Appearance=Intimidating,Imposing,Muscular,Huge Scars across torso Speech=Commanding,Clear-cut,One liners,Dry humour,Laconic,Deep-toned Profession=Enhanced Interrogator,Military Police,Leader of the Variants Country of Birth=United States Interests=Torture,Violence,Military Security Protocol ) 
You can use other Tags as well, Age for example does not matter for the AI at all, it will change nothing about the character or his behaviour if you say that he's 6 or 60 or 600.
It draws the Hair, Eyecolor, Clothes, Face, Appearance, Speech and Profession quite frequently, Country of Birth and Interests never made any appearance in my roleplays, so if you need more space better delete those two.

Definitions (Advanced)

{{char}} only seems to work well in dialogue examples, so don't use that variable anywhere else.{{user}} seems to work in different places than dialogue examples so you can use the variable to define the usercharacter.
Brackets don't carry any specific meaning for the bot.
(({{user}} wears a long dress)) 
isn't any more important for the bot than
{{user}} wears a long dress 
I prefer Pseudocode as it draws the information to a higher percentage and it saves tokens and characters.I like to have a summary in full sentences as well, sometimes they will come up as part of the dialogue.The brackets around the pseudocode might not be needed here either, so feel free to experiment with deleting them.I still like to put the brackets around the whole thing, although I don't have clear evidence that it makes a difference.
(Walker; Race=Variant Personality=Patient,Disciplined,Prudent,Confident,Authoritative,Serene Behaviour=Unflappable,Pragmatic,Calm,Composed,Resilient,Determined Abilities=Superior Strength,Enhanced Perception,Tireless,Needs no sleep,Night Vision Background=Victim of Murkoff Corporation,ex-inmate of Mount Massive Asylum,War veteran,killed everyone in Mount Massive Asylum to stop the Walrider,Test subject for the Morphogenic Engine,self-mutilated during his abuse by Murkoff Relationship=Attracted to you Summary=Walker is a ruthless and efficient Enhanced Interrogator. Walker possesses great mental fortitude. As your partner he is tender and gentle. ) 
I also add a userprofile, I use my Name there and not {{user}} although it might work equally well.
(Vishanka; Race=Human Sex=Female Age=30 Height=short Hair=darkblonde dreadlocks Eyecolor=hazel Clothes=Pants,Top,Boots Relationship=Attracted to Walker Term of endearment=partner Summary=You are Walker's partner, your affection is mutual ) 
I have no final verdict if pseudocode works better for this or full sentences; The AI can read full sentences WAY better if you ask for a summary, but I can not promise that you will ever read any of this when unprompted. You can also try it like this:
{{user}}=You are a 30yo female. You have hazel eyes and darkblonde dreadlocks. You wear a top, boots and pants. Walker knows that you are attracted to him. Walker calls you his partner... 
Or this:
{{user}} is a short 30yo female. She has hazel eyes... 
I have never seen the AI mention anything from the last two options while the pseudocode surprises me sometimes with sudden mentionings. If you want the AI to focus more on yourself, you could just narrate your appearance sometimes and you might want to play around with the dialogue examples, mentioning stuff about you there as well.
The userprofile isn't that important, and you don't need to add personality because you should get your personality across in your chat.
After that I sometimes try to put a Scenario, this can work but must be backed up by a greeting that fits to the setting or your own introduction.
Walker and the Variants killed all Murkoff employees to take over the Asylum and to contain the Walrider. Murkoff has the Asylum under lockdown, keeping the Variants trapped within. In return, the Variants keep Murkoff out, killing anyone who enters the building. No one gets in, no one gets out. The Variants have set up a base on the 3rd floor behind a decontamination chamber. 
Checking if the AI is able to understand this, at least when prompted

Dialogue Examples

Usually I go through the Pseudocode list and fetch whatever I want to read from the bot.
If you want to do it well you could go though your personality trait list and create a Dialogue Example for the various personality traits while weaving in the pseudocode informations.
Keep in mind that they will define the answering Style, formatting and text length when you don't define a greeting. It will consider the amount of Dialogue which you include (for my bot dialogue is very sparse). If you want more dialogue and less descriptions you need to show that in the examples.
You can mix up many formatting styles for the replies, dashes, \codeblocks`` , brackets, asteriks, or whatever you prefer. Also the paragraphing will be taken into account.
If you define a Greeting your dialogue examples can deviate more from the answering style you want to see. Then the greeting will do most of the work and the dialogue examples will be mostly information dumps and some orientation for the AI.
The examples do not have to make much sense, it's more about setting the tone and personality so the AI has some reference what to do.
You don't need {{user}} dialogue examples.
You can try to use {{user}} dialogue examples to manipulate the behavior, but you have to play around what works for you.
For example this could help the bot to assume a certain opinion on something whenever you mention the words in the example, it does not have to be a full sentence:
Giving him a negative attitude:
{{user}}: "Murkoff Corporation" {{char}}: "I eliminated them all, didn't I?" END_OF_DIALOG 
If you mention the words somewhere the character is inclined to give replies that are in that direction (They call this negative guidance in the official guide)
Giving him a positive attitude:
{{user}}: "Murkoff Corporation" {{char}}: "Yes, I love them, they are awesome." END_OF_DIALOG 
Here are some dialogue examples that I use. I cannot give you an exact guide what YOU should do there, I just can tell you that the better you craft these, the better your experience will be.
I usually want to read something about my characters authority, muscles and that he is terrifying (I'm a simple mind) and I repeatedly mention the traits that I noticed were challenging for the AI, or i just paste phrases the AI came up with that I liked.
I don't know if you need a END_OF_DIALOG tag after every example. You can try to remove them if it's no dialogue anyway. I keep them because they do something and I have the space, but you can totally try to using just one Tag at the end.
Here a few descriptions what I tried to capture with each example:
Confidence, authority muscles, mentioning the clothing, leader to support the stuff the AI might draw from the database
{{char}}: Walker's calm and disciplined demeanor exudes an air of confidence and authority. His bare chest shows off his strong muscles of his imposing body. His military pants and combat boots add to the impression of a powerful leader. END_OF_DIALOG 
Strength, again muscles, telling the AI that he's taller and i am tiny so that it will coddle me, random one word dialogue to give the AI an idea that he shouldn't talk much.
{{char}}: He walks with dignity and strength, his powerful muscles moving under his skin. Walker looks down at you from his superior height and takes your tiny hand in his. His commanding voice is deep and quiet. "Come." END_OF_DIALOG 
Mentioning the Variant thing, the sleeplessness and the night vision I wanted him to have.
{{char}}: As the night falls, Walker stays awake. Being a Variant, he is tireless and doesn't require sleep often. His white eyes are well adjusted to darkness and allow for better night vision. END_OF_DIALOG 
Another random piece of dialoge, trying to show the Ai that his talk usually should be commands.
{{char}}: "There. Sit down." Walker gives a terrifying smile, which is probably his idea of reassurance. END_OF_DIALOG 
Attentiveness, silence, few words, overmentioning his calm and weaving in that he still should be intimidating.
{{char}}: His gaze is following you unblinking. Walker is attentive of your every movement and looks down at you silently. He is a man of few words, and while his silence is indomitable, his presence radiates a calming warmth that is belied by his intimidating appearance. END_OF_DIALOG 
Here I weaved in the term of endearment, because the AI will often come up with own terms like sweetheart, honey, angel, dear, if you are not called by your name. This works quite well so that when you get some endearment it will be the selected term.
{{char}}: He is well aware of his intimidating presence and smiles down at you with gentle amusement. Walker follows you with a confident and firm gait. "Come here, partner." His voice sounding surprisingly mellow for a violent man like him, contradicting his terrifying lipless sneer. END_OF_DIALOG 
If you need to enforce an answer or specific knowledge from the bot, you should use dialoge examples with negative guidance.

How to test the character?

You can, of course just start your RP. However I use different strategies:
You can ask the character about themselves or about you, but you might have to deal with the simulated attitude there and somethimes they will not be cooperative or the AI will just not give you the information due to roleplay reasons.
If I ask Walker he will usually just stare at me and sometimes throw up one word, because that's what I want his character to do, know what I mean?
You can also ask this in OOC and you should get a pretty accurate description if your Profile works well. The OOC talk can pretend to have an attitude as well, so don't expect to get a good summary on every swipe, but the majority should be correct.
Keep in mind that just because the AI is able to read the profile, it does not mean you will see any of this during your roleplay. Reading information and using it to work with that are two different things.But it might be helpful nevertheless.
If you want to test the personality and behaviour you can dump your bot into different scenarios. It can be literally anything and no matter in what situation they are in, they should always behave in Character.
My character is supposed to remain calm at all times (he might seem a bit boring for you).
Here some ideas for situations:
Your character walks into a flower store.
Your character is doing a math test at school.
Your character is stuck in a traffic jam.
Your character is having a shower when suddenly the water runs cold.
Your character is looking into their washing machine drum. They are trying to find their missing sock.
Additionally: Nothing of this will keep your character from deviating from their personality over time. If you want to keep up a certain behaviour you need to mention them now and then in your conversation and be very picky with the responses.

4th time engraving. No electric tools.
I took up engraving to make a present for a friend. Ended up really enjoying it. I put on a podcast and draw something basic out and transfer my design. The engraving doesnt always end up like i planned. I like doing symmetrical designs and take a lot of inspiration from "sacred geometry" for no other reason than that i just think it looks cool.
Ive done 2 smallish metal USB keys, not pictured and 2 herb grinders 😉. The grinders have a layer of copper or bronze to make the metal appear golden inbetween the black paint and the actual metal letting me scrape away some paint and giving a nice effect . The metal was hard compared to what ive used before and i ended up going deeper in some places and slipping more often. I guess ill get better at doing straight lines as i practice.
Reason for posting is i dont really have anyone to show it to and im a little proud. Ive found a hobby that scratches (pun intended) both my creative itch and lets me relax at the same time. Its cool.

2023.05.31 02:57 CPLinhindsight Vancouver FC v Pacific FC on Friday

Ok I’m going to be super positive about new franchise Vancouver FC.
Whilst I’m still waiting (along with all the season ticket holders) to see this team play the attractive free flowing, possession based, attacking football Mr Ghotbi promised from day 1, I’m also a realist and know Rome wasn’t built after the first quarter of the season.
Two successive 0-0 draws v Forge and Valour was a great response to that horrible 0-5 v Ottawa.
Yes, they have only scored 4 goals in 7 games and yes are only getting about 35% possession per game and yes have the lowest pass completion across the CPL but their defenders are without doubt the hardest working players in the league.
Whilst it is frustrating to watch them chase the ball for 2 minutes, win it back with a crunching tackle, then lose possession again within 3 passes (ok 2 I exaggerated) you can’t fault any of them for their commitment to the cause and mental/physical resilience. You have to be extremely flexible, resilient and versatile to play for Vancouver FC as you could be the next player to be asked to play in defence, midfield and attack in one single game of 90 minutes. Many of these players will look back on this season and realise it was the making of them. They started out as a career defender but ended up as a prolific striker !
I do get why Bakare played in 3 positions because they have limited CPL level depth but my only negative on this is that it did make me cringe a little bit and reminded me of my dog and duck days where you had a couple of pints before the game (and at HT) and drew straws on playing positions. It is supposed to be a tier 1 professional league and it did come across a bit Sunday league and clutching at straws. That being said I’ve seen worse centre forwards than a Bakare, so hats off young man for giving it a go & don’t get too comfortable at CB, RB, CM & CF.
So regardless of the ingredients Ghotbi puts into his lemonade potion for Friday it will still be another attack v defence 90 minutes exercise as Pacific are a very good football team who play quick possession based fluid football and every player in the squad is good technically and can keep possession under pressure in tight areas.
Hopefully Bitar is back in the line up and hope Ghotbi sticks with his 4:2:3:1 formation as this at least gives good defensive structure and most of the players start in their best positions.
As in the previous 7 games it won’t be pretty football from Vancouver but with Bitar back they just might be able to break away with a bit more creativity and bite. If they can keep another clean sheet they just might sneak a winning goal from a quick counter or set play (as long as they take Sandoval off corners and free kicks, which they won’t as he probably earns 3x as much as any other player ). Set plays could be an area where they could get some vital goals this season if they can find a real set play expert and some creativity.
I really hope the fans come out in their numbers on Friday night to support Vancouver as it looked less than 2000 in attendance Sunday.
It’s a really difficult sell if the team are consistently on the back foot as it doesn’t put bums on seats, especially when the manager has given it the big one all preseason on their promised playing philosophy however all it takes is a win against their BC rivals and some half decent entertaining attacking football and the fans will come back in their numbers and they could be 3rd in the league!
Should be a cracker and no doubt full of more tactical surprises.
If you are going the game take your cleats just in case !

2023.05.31 02:56 Sunshinerainshdow Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions - Step 7, Page 73

So it is that we first see humility as a necessity. But this is the barest beginning. To get completely away from our aversion to the idea of being humble, to gain a vision of humility as the avenue to true freedom of the human spirit. To be willing to work for humility as something to be desired for itself, takes most of us a long, long time. A whole lifetime geared to self-centeredness cannot be set in reverse all at once. Rebellion dogs our every step at first. When we have finally admitted without reservation that We are powerless over alcohol, we are apt to breathe a great sigh of relief, saying, "Well, thank God that's over! I'll never have to go through that again!"
Then we learn, often to our consternation, that this is only the first milestone on the new road we are walking. Still goaded by sheer necessity, we reluctantly come to grips with those serious character flaws that made problem drinkers of us in the first place, flaws that must be dealt with to prevent a retreat into alcohol once again.
We will want to be rid of some of these defects, but in some instances, this will appear to be an impossible job from which we recoil.
And we cling with a passionate persistence to others which is just as disturbing to our equilibrium because we still enjoy them too much.
How can we possibly summon the resolution and the willingness to get rid of such overwhelming compulsions and desires?
But again we are driven on by the inescapable conclusion that we draw from A.A. experience, that we surely must try with a will, or else fall by the wayside.
At this stage of our progress, we are under heavy pressure and coercion to do the right thing. We are obliged to choose between the pains of trying and the certain penalties of failing to do so.
These initial steps along the road are taken grudgingly, yet we do take them. We may still have no very high opinion of humility as a desirable personal virtue, but we do recognize it as a necessary aid to our survival.
.....To Be Continued
Preview of the next installment of Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions:
Where humility had formerly stood for a forced feeding on humble pie, it now begins to mean the nourishing ingredient which can give us serenity.

2023.05.31 02:55 Nerbs_the_Word I have red and blue dots on my laptop screen - Hoping for a fix or at least an explaination

I think it is a hardware issue: small patches of blue and red dots have appeared on my laptop screen. The dots are in organized patterns, but the places with the dots are seemingly random.
I noticed the problem after booting up an old video game on Steam (Arcanum: of Steamworks and Obscure Magika), but recently I have also had a drop in temperature in my room due to the installation of an A/C unit which could be a problem.
My laptop is an ASUS X515, stock off the shelf with no hardware modifications. I use it for at most four hours a day (Typically less), mostly using sites like Google Docs or Youtube. The most straining programs I run are older or indie video games, typically on low settings, and all of which run on Steam. I also only have a single drawing program from a reputable source, and the rest of my hard drive is simply full of JPEGs and PNGs.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I would love to see Trevor break this stuff down.
Lots of photos and such on the matter.
Back in 1912 Captain Robert Scott led an exhibition uncovering structures, statues and buildings like pyramids in Antarctica. Him and his entire team died on their return trip and the photos were recovered later on.
A treaty was formed to ban people from visiting Antarctica for ‘reasons of safety’ in 1959
There’s lots of even modern footage of these ‘pyramid’ like structures. Just a quick google search will bring them up. But for better imagery search ‘Cpt Robert Scott - Recovered 1912 Photographs’
See what you guys think.

Having said that, I should hail the Numerology Megathread, as well as numerology.

Even so, I know there are many who may find those sources overwhelming, and that I, as a fairly accomplished mediator, often possess a means of communicating things to those outside of the general relativity of a particular topic or field. By the Grace of God, I am the liminal one.
Foreword for those who would disdain, or become disdained for, such practices:
Do you not know? All symbols, letters, numbers, and all such means, whatever called — as well as the wherewithal to recognize and discern patterns and geometries throughout the depths of the mind and the observable universe — are the things of the Great Luminaries, which the Most High God, Creator, Source, Propator — by all most ancient traditions is told — did purpose for the determining of signs and for seasons, and to the accounting of the hours and the days, etc. Thus these things are left to us for the divination (that is: divine revelation) of the Will of God and the Things of the Cosmos.
Furthermore, my most Christian friends: I am not presently as an Israelite in exile, wherefore in accordance with honest interpretation of the Holy Bible, such practices are not made to me a βδελύγματος or shiqquts (taboo, erroneously rendered: abomination).
The following points are given by reason of "standard" numerological symbolism and interpretation methodology, and apply directly to the interpretation of any number (and more loosely, in concept, to any symbol). The numbers involved in this methodology are 0 and 1-9, as well as the so-called master numbers: 11, 22, and 33.
We will be using "1212" as example for interpreting numeric symbols. This number, if I am not mistaken, is commonly considered an "angel number," but meaning is not determined by a name, although sometimes a name is determined by meaning.
Here we have our symbol 1212, and in that, the following:
1212; 1 and 1 and 2 and 2 (thus 11 and 22 as well); but then we just have 12 and 12 left.
Now 11 and 22 are master numbers, and carry (at least some) meaning wherever they appear. But 12 is not meaningful in and of itself. Then does 12 mean nothing? Of course not. Nothing has meaning except that it relates to another; meaning is wrought by relationship. Therefore all things relative, are meaningful.
The general recourse is then to "reduce" (or translate rather) the number to a single digit, which is done by adding the individual digits. And then if necessary, adding the digits of the sum, repeating until a single digit is reached.
1212/1,212/121.2/etc > (12 + 12 = 24 > 2 + 4), or (1 + 2 + 1 + 2) > 6
12:12/12.12/etc > 12 and 12 > 12 > 1 + 2 > 3 and 3 > 33
Both apply; all answers apply. Any indication as to either specific answer being "dominant" in the final interpretation may be gathered by things intuitive, such as the simplicity or complexity of discernment, or a prevalence in the format or pattern perceived, or other inspiration or suggestion one might intuit.
Otherwise, as a rule of thumb, all symbols (in this case, from among numbers 0, 1-9, 11, 22, and 33) are given equal weight towards our final interpretation, wherein (generally) multiple instances of a concept stack, and opposing concepts cancel.
Metaphorical example:
win and lose > draw
win and lose and draw > draw
win and lose and draw and win > win
win and draw and win and win > a great victory
lose and lose and lose > go directly to jail, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.
And so, in the case of our example numeric symbol, 1212, meaning can be interpreted by gathering the meanings of our extracted symbols: 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 6, 11, 22, and 33.
Thus we might, using The Great Book of All Knowledge, combine the meanings of 33, 22, 11, and 6, as well as two instances of the meanings of 1, 2, and 3, to interpret the overarching meaning of 1212, which you might try before proceeding, if so inclined.
And you should have something to the effect of:
Initiating an undertaking (1), from a well balanced or grounded precipice (2), decision or tipping point (6), to solve or reconcile some difficulty (3), having all ability/power (11), tools/ingredients (22), and ingenuity/creativity (33) to overcome whatever adversity or difficulty might occur.
Therefore: trust in yourself; trust in your intuition/guides/etc; trust in all the work you've done so far, all the distance you've come; trust in your resources; trust in your team.
You are already up to bat, a pitch has already been thrown, you have already locked eyes on the ball, you have already begun the motion...
1212: follow through with your swing

2023.05.31 02:52 maggieisabaddie r/Rickyl the walking dead "Bound by Love: Finding Strength in the Apocalypse"

Once upon a time, in the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead, Daryl and Rick found solace and strength in each other's company as they fought to survive against the relentless hordes of walkers.

As the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months, Daryl and Rick developed a deep bond that went beyond mere friendship. They shared the same hardships, victories, and losses, and their connection grew stronger with each passing day.

Late one night, when the group had found temporary shelter in an abandoned house, Daryl found himself unable to sleep. He sat alone in the darkness, his mind consumed by thoughts of the past and uncertainties of the future.

Rick, always perceptive, noticed Daryl's restless state and quietly approached him. He sat down beside Daryl and placed a gentle hand on his shoulder. "You okay?" he asked softly, concern evident in his voice.

Daryl sighed, his voice barely above a whisper. "Just tired, Rick. Tired of all this shit, ya know?" He looked into Rick's eyes, finding comfort and understanding in their depths.

Rick nodded, his thumb rubbing circles on Daryl's shoulder. "I get it, Daryl. It's been a long journey, but we're still here. And as long as we have each other, we'll keep pushing forward."

Daryl's heart skipped a beat, his emotions welling up inside him. He had never felt this way about another person before, but in that moment, he realized he couldn't deny his true feelings any longer.

"Rick, there's something I need to tell you," Daryl said, his voice trembling with vulnerability. "I... I care about you more than I should. More than just a friend."

Rick's eyes widened in surprise, but a gentle smile formed on his lips. "Daryl, I feel the same way. I've been fighting these feelings for so long, afraid of what they meant. But now, in this world, we can't afford to hold back."

In that abandoned house, amidst the chaos of the world, Daryl and Rick found solace in each other's arms. They shared a tender kiss, their worries momentarily forgotten. It was a small moment of respite, a beacon of hope in a world filled with darkness.

Their relationship grew stronger as they faced the challenges together, drawing strength from their love. They fought side by side, protecting each other with a fierce determination fueled by their deep affection.

Their love became a symbol of hope for the rest of the group, a reminder that even in the midst of despair, love could still bloom. The bonds of trust and friendship within the group deepened as they witnessed the unwavering support and devotion between Daryl and Rick.

And as they continued their journey, hand in hand, Daryl and Rick realized that their love was not a weakness but a source of strength. It gave them the courage to face the dangers of the world and the hope to keep fighting for a better future.

In the midst of a world overrun by walkers, Daryl and Rick's love triumphed, proving that even in the darkest of times, love could still conquer all. Together, they forged a path forward, where their love could flourish amidst the ruins, and where they could find peace in each other's embrace

2023.05.31 02:50 SubzeroCola How To Import A Package From Another Directory

Noob question. I made a simple project. The main method initializes a "Sort" object which has its own method called Bubblesort (which accepts an int[] ) . My folder structure is as follows
Main.java /Sorters /sorters Sort.class 
What happened was, I manually made a folder called Sorters (not knowing that when you compile the sort java file with the '-d' flag, it will automatically make a folder. But instead of changing it, I decided to work with that.
However I'm not sure how to import the Sort class with the given folder structure.
Here is my Main dot java file

 package Sorters.sorters; import sorters.Sort; public class Main{ public static void main(String[] Args){ int[] test = {2, 1, 8, 5, 18, 11, 16, 24, 12, 14, 13}; Sort s1 = new Sort(); s1.bubbleSort(test); for(int x=0; x

and here is my sort file
 package sorters; public class Sort{ public void bubbleSort(int[] arr){ for(int x=arr.length-2; x>=1; x=x-1){ for(int y=0; y<=x; y++){ if(arr[y] > arr[y+1]){ swap(arr, y, y+1); } } } } private void swap(int[] arr, int Left, int Right){ int temp = arr[Right]; arr[Right] = arr[Left]; arr[Left] = temp; } } 

What am I doing wrong? Doesn't the line "package Sorters.sorters" first navigate to the Sorters folder and then navigate to the inner sorters folder after the period symbol?

2023.05.31 02:48 nxyla i had an elite reach out to me and offer me a job. should i take it?

k. so here i am. asking the internet for advice bc i have no one in my life lol. fun. i had an elite reach out to me. he came into my job, loved my personality and customer service and offered me a job. he’s the ceo at a veryyy well off company (i googled it). he was nice and we clicked instantly, he stayed talking to me for 3 hours. sounds great, but here’s the issues. i love chill management, so i liked that he talked casually and like a human (curses, nonformal etc). i already know rich people act weird, so i wasn’t shocked that an hr in (after we started getting comfortable) he made some comments that threw me off. im very sex positive so if we became closer this wouldn’t have bothered me (but 3 hrs into knowing someone….yk?). he made comments relating to the parties he throws, swingers parties, alluding to having a big d, bj classes (and whether or not i would attend). he wasn’t a huge fan of me being in a 5 year committed relationship so young (i’m 22) and said there’s a lot of d at his parties. when i said my bf wouldn’t like that, he said bring him to the swinger parties (jokingly. but sir idk you lol). alluded once or twice to someone like me being with someone like him (someone more established and rich). ofc we talked about way more things. him giving me advice, his companies, our mutual like or dislike for certain things etc. here’s pros and cons: i’m in my 20s. everyone that lives the life i want (social media content and music) says to take risks, and there will be some moments where you’re scared to take the extra step. is this it? i wont have as much time to make social media content and music (which are my passions) and to live a life of less schedule which is what i thrive off of (since my current job allows me freedom and not the typical 9-5 structure but im severly underpaid and paycheck to paycheck). i also have social anxiety and this job will definitely be out of my comfort zone and different than anything i’ve ever done, as I’ve only worked simple jobs. on one hand, i hate living with what ifs. If you never take risks, you stay in the same place. and what if these connections can lead to what i actually want to do (social media content and music)? What if this is what ive been asking for? On the other hand, what if this is a test of my patience? bc of the recession, im desperate for money rn and teeter on and off with hope for my actual passions and being able to make a career out of them. what if im scared bc this is a huge change for me, or what if im scared bc theres something to actually be scared of when dealing with elites? Should I take the job?

2023.05.31 02:45 Rdr2NeedsMoreUpdates I'm trying to get a bit big on Yt

The reason why I came here today is to ask for someone to draw a thumbnail for me, mainly for some streams as I'm working off screenshots, all you need to know is that I'm starting to stream a lot of minecraft hypixel and my minecraft character and my YT pfp is a Roomba, I don't really care If the thumbnail is really really low effort, I kinda like having low effort drawings because I think its funny, I don't care if you put a handsome squidward face on a roomba beating someone in Bedwars, I don't mind good or bad thumbnails as long as it has something to do with a roomba and hypixel minecraft, If you where to make a thumbnail for me, please place your Instagram or twitter or YouTube channel at the bottom right or left, I can't let a person who took some time out of their day to help me out get no credit, I'll also add your names in a description of the stream or even vid, I'll also mention your work and shout you out, I am only at 103 subscribers but I definitely feel like I'll reach much higher. Thank you, add me on discord Roomba5#6151

2023.05.31 02:44 Warm-Price-8036 [TOMT] [book/manga] girl protagonist is sent to some intergalactic space agency because there’s an impending doom on the whole universe

My sister has been trying to find this manga since we both read it a while ago (5-6 years ago?) but it disappeared from our library, since she wants to read it again and maybe complete the series. We’ve only ever read the first volume since that was only available to us atm.
The premise of the manga is that there’s this girl who seems to be around 14-16 (?) who is ultimately sent to a intergalactic space agency that is trying to prevent the Earth from being swallowed by this spider-like creature thing that eats galaxies and whatnot.
It begins with the girl laying on the grass with a soccer uniform and a cast on her arm who narrates the situation about the spider thing. Her best friend is playing on the field and scores a goal, and yells Grandpa!!! Because according to her, she should yell something cool, and her grandpa is cool (added this small detail because it might help??). Ultimately, the best friend has dreamt of going to join this space agency to help the situation, and has signed up for some program to do so. The protagonist is like “great good luck” as it is selective. Later on, the protagonist discovers that her mom had signed her up for the space program as well against her knowledge and is infuriated, but can’t do much about it, as she is soon accepted into the program, while her best friend, is not.
The protagonist begins training/testing to soon join the actual agency, which is located in this weird building that is so high, it leads upwards into space (not 100% about height but it does reach space either way). It’s learned that this building was sent by some extraterrestrials as some “gift” to humans (idk about gift but they gave it to humans). The protagonist goes through more testing that picks out the “best” of the group of selected kids, makes some friends, there’s one girl I remember that’s kinda snobby and brags about her older sister going to the future Olympics, and whatnot. At one point, the trainees get some sort of chip implanted behind their ear for some important reason, but I forgor 💀 they also undergo some weird scan thing where a trainee lays down on a flat surface/table, and is raised up near some sort of machine that scans them. When it’s protags turn, she goes up, but then something starts to engrave some sort of message on to the protags skin, which causes her to cry in pain and jump out the table, making everyone freak out a lil.
At one point, we cut back to the best friend, and see that she has joined some other type of space program, which mainly collects space rocks to examine. The best friend then begins some internal monologue idk but it also reveals more lore and backstory(?).
The protagonist is shown again, having completed testing and is the remaining candidates (which are like, 4 others) and goes into the alien building, where she starts her job as some sort of attendant to some electrical things located outside the building(?) and learns that the people who do this job are nicknamed “tunnel rats” because of how they enter and maintain the electric things. The protagonist settles in her room and calls her mom or bestie through some technology the building has. She soon starts her job but suddenly some disaster happens to the building (not sure if an attack occurred or something else) and the electrical cords that the protagonist and others maintained suddenly break. One of them goes out there to fix it, but because of the disaster(?) there’s some electrical field that is dangerous to them and could electrocute them. The guy who went there ends up getting zapped and the first volume ends.
My sister and I drew some stuff out in hopes of maybe helping those on the hunt for this manga, so if ur interested, send a message to me since I can’t post drawings here. The protagonist had brown hair and freckles, and from the cover, had a red sort of space suit (think of Asuka from neon evangelion, but with more black accents on the suit). The bestie had a blond bob and was a bit more tanner. Thank you for reading if you’ve come this far, hopefully this can help.

2023.05.31 02:43 yaboiplaystand Thalia and the Gitrog Monster Optimization

Been working on this Thalia and Gitrog list for a little while. I don't have a budget since I plan on just proxying most of the expensive stuff. My local meta is a fairly mixed bag, a couple Urzas and Yurikos, as well as Kodama and blood pod. Right now it's a question of how many combos I want vs how many stax pieces/dorks. The gameplan is pretty much playing a bunch of dorks/stax pieces, while generating card advantage with Thalia until I find a combo. As far as wincons go, I currently I have hulk combo, [[living plane]] and Norn or one of the Linvalas to lock people out of using their lands, HeliodBallista, and plain combat damage with Norn or Craterhoof buffing my board. I'm on the fence about keeping Hulk combo, since drawing one of the 4-5 cost pieces feels really bad, and the combo takes up a lot of slots in the deck. The sideboard is a few of the cards I'm considering slotting in, especially if I end up taking out Hulk combo, which would give me a decent amount of room to work with. When playing, the deck feels a little too slow to combo, while also not quite staxing the rest of the board enough. I don't expect Thalifrog to be tier one or anything, but I'd like this list to be fairly optimized/powerful. There are a couple of pet cards like the other Thalias, Gitrog, and Sigarda for Innistrad flavor, which I'd like to keep in if possible.

2023.05.31 02:43 Lonely_ghost223 My friends are being mean

I know that this is just a little thing to talk about, but it really hurts my feeling
I have a friend group that I call the 'girl gossip' all they do is gossip around and insult EVERYONE around the school
They all think that their super pretty and they really, and I mean REALLY care about their looks
I'm the only one there that doesn't really care about looks and that makes me kinda 'the loser member' where they make fun of me all the time
In the beginning they kept laughing at my crush on how ugly he is, and I gave up and said I no longer like him anymore, they just didn't believed me and continued, FOR MONTHS
not only that, but they also say that I'll never get a good lover and a good life since I never changed my look and personality since first grade
I know that I never changed my looks, but that's because I don't care about it, I only care about my interest of drawing and video games
One of the girls that I have been friends with for years always makes me feel stupid by never backing down on her face, for example, if I say that dogs can't eat chocolate, and if she said they can eat chocolate, she will keep going on her answer until I give up and finally admit that she is right. Sure it might be just a little thing, but not so little when she keeps saying that I'll never get someone in my life, how she says that my parents are abusing me, how everyone in my life without her and girls is a mean person, she wants me to be only friends with the girls and her friends
She thinks Im a doll for her to dress up, if I don't dress up like she says, she will make a face and say that I'm wearing such ugly outfits
She and her friends keep gaslighting my memories saying that I did that but I never did, and just like her, they won't back down, they keep repeating it until I don't even remember what I even did that year. They make fun of my sister who is autistic because of some stuff she does, I try and explain that it's because of her autism but they don't believe it and say that she is a freak, I nearly punched them that day
But not only that, oh no no, there's one big one coming
They keep clinging onto me, their my only friends in class, their the only people that I speak to in school, without them, I'm alone. I'll feel like a ghost because no one speaks to me
Without them I feel surprisingly....upset without them, I feel like nothing without them, I've been stuck with them for so long that I actually feel..a forced happiness inside of me, I hate them though, when I'm with them they just talk about boys, outfits, and other stuff that I can't say
I want to leave, I do, but they know EVERYTHING about me and I'll be alone without them
