Feyspook Anthology

First thing first, retweet if you think that Mister Cocaine-Mountain ought to be jailed for appropriating the Global Village.

The following are excerpts from my Feyspook correspondence since June 2015, some in English (first part), others in French (second part).

ENGLISH

Yesterday I was told the following by an acquaintance:

“X. talked to me about one of my female friends, telling me he objected very strongly to my having made friends with her, given her ideas.

Why bother? I said. I take no heed of my female friends’ ideas. It’s just a pity they have any.

– Still, she has some, he added after a moment.

– She will change her ideas before you change your spectacles.

– How do you know? he asked.

– An idea is like everything else in this world: After a while it’s boring and one feels like having a change. Besides, if my friends had to share my ideas, I would have none.”

Let me add a few comments to sustain our appreciation of this work of the monochrome genre. We have here a three-panelled work not on canvass but on screens. There is some electronics involved, which produces a halo effect both coarser than the halo effect produced by oil-paint monochromatic works (I’ll explain what a coarse halo is some other day) and measurably closer to alpha wavelengths – alpha waves being, as you may already know, the waves induced in the brain by watching television along with a hypnoid state (and increased suggestibility as a result). It is speculated among the finest connoisseurs that watching this monochrome long enough while thinking it is a television set will lead one’s mind into a condition of irreversible hypnosis.

THE GOOD NEWS AND THE BAD NEWS ABOUT TV VIEWING

THE GOOD NEWS

“Although W.J. Potter did uncover a negative relationship between TV viewing and academic achievement (as viewing increased, achievement decreased), the relationship did not appear to kick in until TV viewing had reached at least 10 hours per week.” [Note that 10 hours per week is roughly 1 hour and 25 mn per day.]

THE BAD NEWS

“One recent large-scale survey of media use was reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation. … On average, children and adolescents in this age range [up to 18] watch nearly 4.5 hour of TV each day.” [Three times (3.2) the above figure.]

From G.G. Sparks, Media Effects Research, 2015 (pp. 91 & 87 resp.). My own comments in [].

Friedrich Engels on Irish Immigration

From The Condition of the Working Class in England, 1844.

“The Englishman who is still somewhat civilized needs more than the Irishman who goes in rags, eats potatoes, and sleeps in a pig-sty. But that does not hinder the Irishman’s competing with the Englishman, and gradually forcing the rate of wages, and with it the Englishman’s level of civilization, down to the Irishman’s level.”

“Even if the Irish … should become more civilized, enough of the old habits would cling to them to have a strong degrading influence upon their English companions in toil, especially in view of the general effect of being surrounded by the Irish. For when, in almost every great city, a fifth or a quarter of the workers are Irish, or children of Irish parents, who have grown up amid Irish filth, no one can wonder if the life, habits, intelligence, moral status – in short, the whole character of the working class, assimilates a great part of the Irish characteristics. On the contrary, it is easy to understand how the degrading position of the English workers, engendered by our modern history, and its immediate consequences, has been still more degraded by the presence of Irish competition.”

This is the final struggle, la la la la la…

Have you seen the film The Thin Red Line (1998) on the Guadalcanal battle in WW2? Although not a bad film, the psychology is grossly inaccurate.

Men scared out of their minds, nervous breakdowns, endless tears… It looks more humane than other war films, truer, then, to our humanity, but it’s the contrary: Even though fear is always present in war, pride prevents its easy manifestation. Men can so easily become good little soldiers when flocked together because of their pride. And if the contemporary public does not understand, or feel, this any more, then it must be that they have lost their pride – and with it all sense of shame. (On pride, read Mandeville’s Fable of the Bees.)

Moreover, in the film one  soldier receives a letter from his wife at home asking for divorce as she has found another man. I’m sure such things did not happen. A woman divorcing from a drafted soldier on duty in war time would have been eyed as a traitor by her neighbors, her act as akin to high treason, as disloyalty not only to her man but also to her country. I am confident that research on this particular point would prove me right – but that says nothing on women’s faithfulness.

Brexit is a big shame… on all experts, who saw nothing coming. They now are silent on their resounding failure to deliver any insight whatever.

The analysts in question, about the whole caste of them, ironically are the very persons responsible for Brexit. Many people who would have voted against it did not go to the polls as they were convinced Brexit would not pass and they could make a better use of their time. Similarly, many people who voted for Brexit in order to send a signal of anger to Cameron but did not mean Brexit, felt justified in doing so as they were convinced Brexit would not pass. This I learnt from French politologist Olivier Duhamel, who, however, came short of drawing the obvious conclusion. For whence came such a firm conviction in people if not from the steamroller of expert forecasts predicting that Brexit would not pass, i.e. true brainwashing?

*

Commentators insist on the fact that that financial hub, London, voted against Brexit – but is that surprising? How did Oxford and Cambridge vote?

(A YouTube Video posted after one of the debates for the American presidential election:) STRANGE YELLOWISH FILTER ON BACKGROUND OF HILLARY CLINTON FRAME…

engineered_lettering-2

The filter (or whatever contrivance is used) makes the image more attractive, with shiny golden lettering as opposed to dull lettering in the background. The brain will tend to demand the “starlit” background, so when it’s Trump speaking the brain says: “Oh, not that dull image again, bring the shiny one back.” By the brain is the paleocortex meant, and the effect is especially pronounced in the alpha state induced by TV viewing.

The video has generated many comments on YouTube. A man who presents himself as a technician says there’s no filter but rather it’s automatic camera correction, adapting to the color of the candidates’ clothes. Whatever the technicalities, if the effect I have described above is true (and this is elementary psychology), then there is a bias, and if both candidates were not equally informed of the effects of their clothes and of the lighting and of any other effect of the set-up, then the debate(s) was/were rigged.

That dull vs. bright picture (even if only the background) is not without psychological effect is ascertained by the plain cigarette pack policy (Australia &c). Certainly the idea is intuitive. Both words dull and bright have figurative, value-loaded meanings: dull is negatively loaded, bright is positively loaded. But more importantly the intuition is confirmed by neuromarketing, if needed be. For decades packaging has made use of such psychological notions. “Glossy” gives you the idea. Clearly, if a media set-up, by any of its contrivances, automatic or otherwise, creates “gloss” for one candidate and “dullness” for the other, then that set-up biases the debate, as much as a plain pack is perceived as unattractive compared to a glossy pack and the difference influences the purchase decision. The designers of the presidential debate(s) either contrived their set-up in order to advantage one candidate or they overlooked an elementary notion of their business to the detriment of the fair treatement of both candidates. In any case I think the Supreme Court should look into this, because this is serious.

Some people think it cannot be an intentional trick played against Trump inasmuch as we are talking about conservative Fox News, but Fox News is hardly pro-Trump as this quote from Trump may help you figure out:

Most people don’t know that the co-owner of Fox News is Prince Al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia.

It must have been a pleasure for Prince Al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia to participate in the organization and overseeing of the debates for the American presidential election.

(Une vidéo postée sur YouTube par une association des Amis de Jane Goodall, montrant le lâchage d’un chimpanzé dans la forêt)

Une vidéo très émouvante mais, si j’en crois les connaissances les plus récentes en primatologie (et je ne sais pas de quand date cette vidéo), les chances de survie d’un chimpanzé relâché dans la forêt sont minimes, et il risque au contraire de subir une mort atroce ! Les chimpanzés vivent en hordes qui défendent chacune un territoire. Les chimpanzés qui s’isolent de leur horde courent le risque de mourir assassinés par des chimpanzés d’autres hordes, et ce d’autant plus que des groupes de chimpanzés partent régulièrement en maraude pour voir s’il n’y a pas des chimpanzés isolés à tuer. A l’époque où Jane Goodall conduisait ses observations, l’idée de singes tueurs était rejetée par pratiquement tous les biologistes, car le comportement n’avait jamais été observé ailleurs que dans des zoos et on l’imputait alors aux conditions de vie anormales de ces animaux. Ce n’est que dans les années quatre-vingt-dix que le comportement a commencé à être observé dans des conditions naturelles. Les chimpanzés sont une des rares espèces animales à pratiquer l’assassinat (autre que l’infanticide, beaucoup plus fréquent, les mâles de nombreuses espèces tuant les enfants des femelles avec lesquelles ils veulent s’accoupler). Sur les singes tueurs, voir Demonic Males de Wrangham et Peterson (1996).

Cette vidéo m’intrigue et m’inquiète. Si le chimpanzé est une femelle, c’est sans doute moins grave, car les femelles quittent leur groupe de naissance pour aller s’accoupler dans un autre groupe, mais, selon Wrangham et Peterson, les femelles isolées ne seraient quand même pas toujours épargnées par les assassins, surtout, peut-être, si elles ont la charge d’un petit. D’un autre côté, si la vidéo est ancienne, je ne pointe pas Goodall du doigt car on ignorait ces faits à l’époque ; le phénomène de l’assassinat (intraspécifique adulte) est rare dans le monde animal, et il était sans doute crédible de nier la pertinence de généraliser les cas d’assassinat observés dans des zoos. Mais je reproche alors à l’association de continuer de diffuser des vidéos anciennes, pour émouvoir le public et recueillir des fonds, alors que la réalité est ce qu’elle est, et que, certainement, on ne relâche plus des chimpanzés dans la nature s’ils doivent mourir assassinés !

Pourquoi est-ce que les chimpanzés tuent ? La réponse, en anglais technique : “They maximize their fitness.” Les frontières des territoires des groupes ne sont pas gravées dans le marbre. Si, pour une raison ou une autre, la population d’un groupe diminue, cela donne l’opportunité aux groupes voisins d’étendre leur territoire. Le territoire étant ce qui assure la subsistance du groupe, plus il est grand et plus le groupe peut être grand. Plus le groupe est grand, plus il attire de femelles et donc plus les mâles ont d’opportunités de se reproduire. En tuant, quand l’occasion se présente, des individus d’un groupe voisin, les chimpanzés accroissent l’importance relative de leur propre groupe.

Alors tuez-les avant qu’ils ne vous tuent, parce que ce n’est pas demain qu’ils vont en avoir.

Il y a une autre possibilité. La corrélation entre chômage et criminalité est positive pour les jeunes hommes, pas pour les jeunes femmes. Les femmes au chômage deviennent boulimiques ou rejoignent des sectes, elles ne sont pas dangereuses pour autrui. Nous pourrions donc aussi décider de sortir les femmes du travail, pour notre sécurité à tous.

Les robots livreurs arrivent (article de presse). L’argument est intéressant : les clients veulent éviter le contact humain. Ça fait longtemps que je le dis. Les gens prennent leur voiture pour faire 100 mètres plutôt que de marcher, non pas tant par paresse (car en plus ils savent qu’ils ont besoin d’exercice) que parce qu’ils ne veulent pas croiser des gens dans la rue.

Parfois, les gens font en voiture les 150 mètres qui les séparent de leur salle de sport.

Les gens veulent en général éviter deux types de contact humain : le contact pour des relations purement fonctionnelles (p. ex., payer un achat) et le contact avec des inconnus dans la rue. Si vous ne comprenez pas bien ce dernier point, il suffit de savoir que 37 % des homicides ont pour origine une “altercation triviale” (Kenrick & Griskevicius, The Rational Animal, 2013), typiquement deux inconnus (abrutis) qui se croisent dans la rue. (Et je fais partie des abrutis car j’ai déjà eu une altercation dans… un bureau de poste, avec intervention de la police et convocation au tribunal, mon dos ayant malencontreusement brisé une vitrine contre laquelle j’avais été poussé. Ça se passait à Chaville, qui n’est pas considéré, à ma connaissance, comme une banlieue chaude.)

Tweet Anthology

This is an anthology of my tweets from September to December 2016. Feel free to follow me on Twitter: @florboucharel. Most likely I will follow you back (unless you are too creepy even for me).

When one of my tweets is actually a reply to another tweet, which content is needed for a good understanding, the preceding tweet is in italics. I name the author when this is relevant, either because the person is known or the source is another media. My tweet then follows below it.

Don’t be surprised, if you count characters, to see that some of the tweets are more than the 140 characters allowed on Twitter: I have rewritten a few of them in accordance to standard spelling (no abbreviations left).

We now know banking can be made by robots.

The sooner robots replace bankers the better. My heartfelt thanks to Lakshmi!

[Of course I’m joking, Lakshmi only replies to customers’s queries at your local branch. And yet…]

Israel’s ‘Helicopter #Drone Gift’ to #Russia makes USA uneasy. Fearing exposing of its technology, USA demands explanation from Israel. (Newscast Pratashya)

Explanation may be the drone was U.S.’s gift to Israel to begin with, so USA might as well demand explanations to themselves.

We cannot afford to lose the war on poverty.

We’ve afforded it all right for the last couple of million years.

‘Meme’ is a useless word (see Randy Thornhill). Or it only means: a word as its occurrence is quantified on WWW.

December 2016

I published classic poetry and threw my free-verse poetry & now I’m appalled because I may have been successful with the latter.

I wouldn’t have minded success from my free-verse poetry…

…but I burnt it all… for the sake of what I would call an ideology of classicism.

I wish the Chinese had taken my job away.

“Dutch Disease”: When oil/gas abounds, manufacture declines. People just hate working.

Robotics is like oil: a ‘Dutch disease.’ & contrary to oil it is here to stay.

Merkel says ‘only right’ to expect multinationals to pay taxes. (Saudi Gazette)

It’s more common to give them tax breaks so they invest in your country. What can Merkel do about that? Nuffin, poor thing.

There are 3.5 million cashier jobs in the United States.

And many of them are discourteous whereas machines are always polite.

Many cashiers are discourteous whereas machines are always polite. Have you noticed?

I see there’s an issue with manners & eye-rolling. The solution: Machines.

Civil servants are human “expert systems.” We don’t need them anymore.

Retweet if you think Gen. Mattis must keep his bags under the eyes and not have them removed them surgically like so many others.

He’s got the bags under the eyes for the job.

BMW’s current campaign is about “driving pleasure,” but it’s soon over. With the ascent of self-driving cars we won’t let people drive, it’s too dangerous.

Self-driving cars will put an end to traffic death toll, on the proviso that men stop driving altogether.

Yesterday they were saying: “Obama POTUS is the account with most followers on Twitter.” Today…

…they say: “What’s that new President who thinks like tweeting?!”

*

How does he have time for a radio show, golf, touring AND doing all these interviews?! Heck, we’re not complaining! (Nights with Alice) [About Night with Alice: ”Top-notch classic rock radio show hosted by THE Alice Cooper. Check out the website to find a station near you!”]

Golf is decadent.

[Through all his career, Alice Cooper was called by some a decadent. Now he is playing golf, that was overlooking the one-man moral lobby that I am, for which it is golf that is decadent.]

Tourists disappointed as strike closes Eiffel Tower for second day.

French office of tourism has issued an apology: “To all kind foreigners who’re visiting us: Pucker up, you can kiss my a**’’

EiffelTower goes dark in solidarity with people of Aleppo. (Saudi Gazette)

The personnel at Eiffel Tower have been on strike (cf one of your earlier tweets). Maybe they cut the power too?

Mexico uncovers tunnels leading to US. (Bangkok Post)

This is a reminder for Donald Trump to build the wall, all right, but deep enough.

And I mean real deep, like you can’t go deeper without being dipped in the melted core of the earth.

After that, to detect illegals check if they’ve got bottoms like baboons’.

Are we talking about the same cyberattack where it was revealed that head of the DNC illegally gave Hillary the questions to the debate? (Donald Trump)

Donna Brazile was the cheating crib.

At school they told me cribs are bad. I wish I’d never listened to them coz I’d be candidate to U.S. elections by now.
