“Palpatine wasn’t even in the first SW, and it was implied he was an ineffectual puppet leader.
Wasn’t till Empire Strikes Back that he was even briefly shown and the cartoonishly super evil portrayal of Palpatine was introduced. Even then nothing more was needed to explain besides that he was Adolf Dracula.
Everything after that was just painful retconning.”
“From the first movie (that he didn’t even appear in) we hear that he dissolved the galactic senate and became emperor
Bam boom, we know that there’s a guy that overthrew some government and is in charge now
Second movie we see that the big bad guy from the first is so scared of this dude that he drops everything to have a chat with him when asked, he’s an intimidating old dude that treats Vader like he’s nothing
Third movie we finally see him in action, he plays the entire rebel alliance like a damn fiddle and easily overpowers the hero of the story, is only defeated by the power of friendship and underestimating Vader’s capability for compassion
Most importantly, unlike Snoke he wasn’t introduced in the 8th fucking feature length movie in the series and introduced as “now this guy’s in charge for some reason I guess, who cares how””
“he didn’t need a backstory because at the time, we were unaware of ANY OTHER previous dark lord. At the time, he was just some evil space wizard who we presumed rose to power the same way evil wizards typically do in every fantasy story.
The problem with snoke is, HE WAS PRESUMABLY ALIVE DURING PALPATINE’S REIGN, therefore, he is REQUIRED to have some sort of explanation as to how he went unnoticed by one of the most powerful darkside users in history.
Keep in mind, sheev was strong enough to SUPRESS the entire light side of the force, weakening jedi, yet he couldn’t sense a rival powerful darkside user? Yeah nah. Fuck off.”
“How the fuck is the First Order STRONGER than in Episode 7? Is Disney physically unable to come up with a plot that’s not Heroic Underdogs vs. Ebil One Dimensional Bad Guyz? This doesn’t make any sense on a fundamental level. The worst part is that the First Order is so incredibly unintimidating that any stakes or danger they might’ve presented evaporated with their concept, but they still keep pushing them as a force to be reckoned with when they are the equivalent of Nazi LARPers.”

>despite having their base of operations blown up (which somehow escaped the notice of the Republic despite being a FUCKING PLANET SIZED DEATH STAR) they are even more “fearsome” and take control of the entire galaxy
The way they’re presented and the role they play in the story are just at massive odds with eachother. I had a little bit of hope after Episode 7, like maybe they would show had badly the New Republic ended up being leading to their control, or how they manipulated other planets into joining them, or something, but nope, you’re just supposed to accept that they gained power because Disney needed to rehash the Rebels vs Empire scenario.”

Tony Taka is likely richer than Raita, though. He is the most mainstream you can get after being a hentai artist and still releasing hentai to this date.”
“The moment the therapist speaks, he stops being a symbol of knowledge and becomes a person to be fooled (or loved or devalued or punished or whatever the nature of that particular transference is.) A post, a story, and the (mostly) silent therapist are the opposite: a screen to project on so that patient or reader can then ask, why does this make me feel like that? (Or, more rigorously: “what do you want from me?”)
This is why readers probably find the my posts about other readers’ problems so powerful. When you read a post about my interaction with someone else, you are assuming the role of that outside neutral observer that is impossible inside the dialogue. Not completely, of course, there is always some fantasy about who I am and who Joe is, what we are like, but clearly you are more outside our transferential situation than we are.
For these reasons, I am becoming convinced that the only real way to “personal growth” outside of direct action is through careful study of fiction. Of course stories may have an intended meaning, but a well written story allows you to ask not just “what does the story mean?” but “why do I think that this is what the story means?””
“If you want to observe the extent to which you are not in control of your countertransferential feelings (women included), get a swimsuit model as a patient– and let someone else watch you do the therapy. Do you dare? I once had the magical opportunity to watch as a resident was told in rounds that the patient being transferred to him by the graduating resident was “gorgeous, a model”. Someone threw a switch, he changed immediately: more professional; softer, more articulated speaking; more mature– all before he ever saw her. It was as if some part of him said, “yes, it makes sense I would be chosen.” But even more impressive was how the rest of the residents treated him over the course of the year. There was some envy but his patient elevated him in their eyes, as if he was a better person, a better therapist. (Similarly: all on-call psychiatrists have had the secret feeling that a doctor’s chaotic patient is a reflection on the doctor.) They asked his opinion on matters when it was neither necessary nor even… a good idea. His proximity to a beautiful woman who came to see him made him more of a man– and of course he wasn’t dating her, it was random chance he was picked– but it gave him a kind of merit as if he had had something to do with it, which was in retrospect silently justified, “he must be good if she stayed with him.” This was true of the female residents as well, and, most importantly, the attendings. (I wonder how they would have interpreted it if she stopped coming.) The simple fact that he was appropriate in the sessions was enough to indicate his talent. It should be no surprise that with this amount of unexplored countertransference from him (and all of his colleagues) that no progress was made in her therapy.”

So you go up to this gloryhole and you announce loudly with pride “haha, clearly this is a ruse. What sort of fucking idiot would ever fall for this? Clearly there’s a guy on the other side who would just cut your dick off if you stuck it in there. I am very clever to see through this ruse.”, only to stick your dick in anyway.

“Some people call it “operation Barbarossa.” I just call it millions of individual Germans fleeing authoritarianism and war in search of a better life in the East. It was really very bigoted of the Russians to insist it was exclusively their land. They weren’t even using it all. Yeah, I mean the Germans were all dressed the same. What are we, the fashion police? Yeah they were armed. Do we not believe in the right to keep and bear arms? Sure, the Germans fought back against Soviet forces who attacked them without provocation. Do we not support diversity and the right to self-defense? Some people say the Nazis committed heinous atrocities. But I say #notallnazis. National socialism was an ideology of peace. The tiny minority who committed war crimes and genocide were not even real national socialists. It’s unfair to judge the rest by association with them. Crimes against humanity have no nationality. I think the real danger, that we always must be on guard against, is germanophobia. If we give in to germanophobia, the fascists win. That’s exactly what they want…”
“Suppose you have two theories, A and B. Both completely different psychologically, different ideas and so on. But all the consequences they computed are exactly the same. They may even agree with the experiments. The two theories, although they sound different at the beginning, have all the consequences the same. It’s usually easy to prove by doing a little mathematics ahead of time to show that the logic of this one and this one will always give corresponding consequences. Suppose we have two such theories: how are we going to decide which one is right?
No way. Not by science. Because they both agree with experiments there’s no way to distinguish one from the other. So two theories, although they may have deeply different ideas behind them, may be mathematically identical, and usually people say then in science ‘one doesn’t know how to distinguish them’. And that’s right.
However, for psychological reasons, in order to get new theories, these two things are very far from equivalent. Because one gives a man very different ideas than another. By putting a theory in a certain kind of framework you get an idea what could change. Which in theory A would talk about something, you say I’ll change that idea here, but to find out what corresponding things you’re going to change in B could be very complicated. It may not be a simple idea. In other words, a simple change here makes maybe a very different theory than a simple change there. In other words, although they are identical before they’re changed, there are certain ways of changing one which look natural, which don’t look natural in the other. Therefore psychologically, we must keep all those theories in our head. Every theoretical physicist that’s any good knows six or seven different theoretical representations for exactly the same physics, and knows that they’re all equivalent, and that nobody is ever going to be able to decide which one is right – at that level – but he keeps them in his head, hoping that they’ll give him different ideas.
Incidentally that reminds me of another thing, and that is that the philosophy or the ideas around the theory: a lot of ideas, ‘I believe there is a space-time’ or something like that in order to discuss your analyses… these ideas change enormously when there are very tiny changes in the theory. For instance, Newton’s ideas about space and time agree with experiment very well. But in order to get to get the correct motion of the orbit of Mercury, which is a tiny tiny difference, the difference in the character of the theory with which you started with is enormous. Reason is, these are so simple, so perfect. They produce definite results. In order to get something that produces a little different results, it has to be completely different. You can’t make imperfections on a perfect thing, you have to have another perfect thing. So the philosophical ideas between Newton’s theory of gravitation and Einstein’s theory of gravitation, their differences, are enormous.
What are these philosophies? These philosophies are really tricky ways to compute consequences quickly. A philosophy, which is sometimes called an understanding of the law, is simply a way a person holds the laws in his mind so as to guess quickly at consequences.
Some people have said, and it’s true for instance in the case of Maxwell’s equations and other equations, ‘Nevermind the philosophies, nevermind anything of this kind, just guess the equations. The problem is only the compute the answers so that they agree with experiment, and it is not necessary to have a philosophy, or worry about the equations’. That’s true. In a sense. Yes, and no. It’s good in the sense if you’re only guessing at the equations, you’re not prejudicing yourself and you’ll guess better. On the other hand maybe the philosophy helps you to get it. It’s very hard to say.
For those people who insist however that the only thing that’s important is that the theory agrees with experiment, I would like to make an imaginary discussion between a Mayan astronomer and his student. The Mayans were able to calculate with great precision the predictions, for example, for eclipses and the position of the moon in the sky and Venus and so on. However it was all done by arithmetic. You count some numbers you subtract certain numbers and so on. There was no discussion of what the moon was. There wasn’t even a discussion of the idea that it went around. There was only calculate the time there would be an eclipse or a time when it would rise full moon and when it would rise half moon. Just calculated, only.
Suppose that a young man went to the astronomer and said, I have an idea. Maybe those things are going around, and they’re balls of rock, we could calculate how they move in a completely different way, rather than just what time they appear in the sky.
So of course the Mayan astronomer would say Yes, how accurate can you predict eclipses? He says I haven’t developed the thing very far. He says But we can calculate eclipses more accurately than you can with your model and so you must not pay any attention to that, this mathematical schema is better.
There’s a very strong tendency in people to say against some idea, if someone comes up with an idea, says let’s suppose the world is this way, and you say to them what would you get for the answer for such and such problem, and he says I haven’t developed it far enough, and you say well we have already developed it much further and we can get the answers very accurately.
So it is a problem as to whether or not as to worry about philosophies behind ideas.”
“As the science developed and measurements were made ever more accurately the tests of Newton’s laws became ever more stringent. And the first careful tests involved the moons of Jupiter by careful observations of the way they went around over long periods of time one could be very careful and check that everything was according to Newton and – it turned out not to be the case. The moons of Jupiter appeared to be first sometimes 8 minutes ahead of time, and sometimes 8 minutes behind schedule, where schedule is calculated value according to Newton’s laws. It was noticed that they were ahead of schedule when Jupiter was close to the Earth and behind schedule when it was far away. Rather odd circumstance. Mister Rømer, having confidence in the law of gravitation, came to an interesting conclusion: that it takes some time for the light to travel from the moons to the Earth, and that what we’re looking at when we see the moons are not how they are now, but how they were the time ago that it took the light to get here. Now when Jupiter is near us, it takes less time for the light to come, and when Jupiter is further away it takes longer time, so he had to correct the observations for the differences in time, and, by the fact that they were this much too early or that much too late, was able to determine the velocity of light. This was the first demonstration that light was not an instantaneously propagating material.
I bring this particular matter to your attention because it illustrates something: that when a law is right, it can be used to find another one. That, by having confidence in this law, if something is the matter, it suggests perhaps some other phenomenon. If we had not known the law of gravitation, we would have taken much longer to find the speed of light, because we would not have known what to expect of Jupiter’s satellites.”
“I must also point out to you that you cannot prove a vague theory wrong. If the guess that you make is poorly expressed and rather vague, and the method you use for figuring out the consequences is […] indefinite, then with a little skill any experimental result can be made to look like an expected consequence. You’re probably familiar with that in other fields.
A hates his mother. The reason is of course, because she didn’t correct him or love him enough when he was a child. Actually if you investigate you find out that, as a matter of fact, she did love him very much, and everything was quite alright. Well then, it’s because she was overindulgent. By having a vague theory, it’s possible to get either result.
The cure for this one is the following: It would be possible to say, if it were possible to state ahead of time, how much love is not enough, and how much love is overindulgent, exactly, then there would be a perfectly legitimate theory against which you could make tests. It is usually said, when this is pointed out, oh you’re dealing with psychological matters, things can’t be defined so precisely.
Yes. But then you can’t claim to know anything about it.”
“When we’re all finished, and we have a mathematical model in which to compute consequences, it really is an amazing thing. What did we do? In order to figure out what an atom is going to do in a given situation, we make up a whole lot of rules, with marks on paper, carry them into a machine which opens and closes with switches in some complicated way, and the result will tell us what the atom is going to do.
Now if the way these switches open and close was some kind of a model of the atom, in other words, if we thought the atom had such switches in it, then I’d say, well, I more or less understand what’s going on.
But I find it quite amazing that’s it’s possible to predict what will happen, by what we call mathematics. We’re simply following a whole lot of rules which have nothing to do, really, with what’s going on in the original thing.
In other words, the opening and closing of switches in a computer is quite different, I think, than what’s happening in nature. That to me, is a surprise.”
“You can recognize truth by beauty and simplicity. It’s always easy when you have the right guess, make two or three little calculations to make sure it isn’t obviously wrong, to know that it’s right. When you get it right, it’s obvious it’s right, at least if you have any experience.
What happens is more comes out than goes in. Your guess, in fact, is that something is very simple, and the moment the guess is simpler than you thought, then it turns out that it’s right, if it can’t be immediately disproved.
Doesn’t sound silly: If you can’t see immediately that it’s wrong and it’s simpler than it was before, then it’s right.”
““…the facts show that all martial races are prone to passionate attachments either to men or women. It was the attachments of the latter sort which were common in Sparta; and the result was that, in the days of her hegemony, affairs largely fell into the hands of women.”10 Later in the text, “…some of the Spartans come to possess an excessively large amount of property, others have been reduced to the merest fraction…”11 and then “…about two fifths of the whole country belongs to [a few owners, and those few] women; this is due to the number of heiresses and the practice of giving dowries.”12 The problem was this: women would marry and, as customary, the new husband would be presented with land from the daughter’s family (which, let’s say, is part of this two-fifths, already). This woman would then have as many children as possible, as there was a law on the books in Sparta that stated if a man had three sons he was exempt from military service. But, as was the case for most Spartan men (including this man’s wife’s father), the husband is killed in battle, allowing the wife to inherit the land that had previously belonged to her mother, and before that her father. The problem was that, while this was not always the case, it was becoming the case more and more, and wealthy women that had no voting power as far as the city-state were concerned had political power under the oligarchy system.13”

“Men statistically work more hours anyway on top of their own chores. 90% of workplace injuries and deaths are attributable to men. Apparently the guy should work more hours than her roofing houses while she works less hours in an air conditioned office and still be expected to come home and help her clean the house.
Men shouldn’t expect women to be mommy, but women go on expecting men to be daddy. I guess that’s why married men out earn women and unmarried men – because women in gender equality land still expect breadwinners.
So, looking at the statistical picture, men are expected to make as much if not more money than her or else risk never even having a wife and children in the first place. That’s probably not something you’re familiar with since men don’t shun women from the most important aspects of social existence for failing to earn professional and financial success like a mule. Equality, right?

The obvious example of this sleight of hand is that there’s alcohol use and alcohol abuse, but there’s no such category as cocaine use, even though the vast majority of its ingestion has nothing to do with addiction.
