my instructor sent out a note the other minute about the logistics for the rest of the course, most notable:

  • All online
  • Exams are still happening (during regular class time)
  • One HW has been dropped (still 2 more to do)

At least there's only 5 weeks left!

Hello from Raleigh, NC. As we approach the end of our time as a community, I've started thinking about having one last community-event. In just the last year we've hosted *so* many get-togethers and things; I don't know if we will ever realize the impact that our small community has had on the NCSU community (past, present, future) and more generally for communities of scale like this across US campuses at large; I want to celebrate the time we've spent together by throwing one last party the night that we shut down for good (May 9th).

This has been an idea for quite some time; however (and unpredictably) we're not at liberty to host an in-person party, as many of us are quarantined and scattered across the country as the university gradually limits on-campus operations and generally transitions to a completely online delivery for the remainder of the term (sending nearly all on-campus students home and canceling all gatherings of more than 10).

Keeping this in mind, we have decided to host the final event ENTIRELY ONLINE; we hope to see you there! We are in the process of setting up a GARRY'S MOD server to facilitate the VIRTUAL party; if you do not have Garry's Mod or cannot buy it, I will buy it for you, just drop your Steam name in the thread below.

Kick back and take it easy, /ncsu/

How are your e-classes going? Lectures seem to be going as usual, it's just a little weird. My large lectures aren't doing real-time lectures (just pre-recorded) but for my engineering courses we're all still meeting at the same time.
I'm just thankful my virtual classroom has a coffee pot!

Depression is so inconvenient. I've been hurt really bad, and it's taking a while to heal without closure.

But the main problem is I have school work! How do y'all COPE with staying in bed an extra two hours and having only just enough motivation?

Without rocks there are no plants. We imbue our essence into the things we make, otherwise were denying core principles of hermetica, all objects are condensed energy. We know this from Science as well, distinctions between rocks and crystals is a matter of degree of energy fluctuation or imbuedness. The existence of egregores, tulpas, and ghosts are the other side of the mineral coin. I will reread John.

Rocks are clocks, the sun is a clock, all things tick and all things tock.

Judaism is a rejection of Christianity. A note on perrenialism, we can say that many religions are given a look into the All (God the Father, Dyeus Pater, etc.) but where would salvation come from? Theosis becomes impossible without Grace, i.e. how can we come to know the mind of God? I'm not great in these long form text type formats, much better at talking with my hands. Please ask questions and I will the same to you.

Yes, from the scientific-positivist standpoint, much of what we consider "substance" is energy, such as the resistant forces between the particles, which we call touch. But if we reduce energy down to the material, and raise material up to energy, then we arrive at the robotic conception of the body as a chemical clock, when, as I would argue, it is such yet with the spark at the helm. There is a seperation from the material and the immaterial even within the frameworks laid out by Hermes Trismegistus, both in his creation story and in passages such as those found in his discourse to his son:

>Unless you first hate your body, my child, you cannot love yourself
>...it is impossible to be engaged in both realms, the mortal and the divine... there are two kinds of entities, corporeal and incorporeal, corresponding to mortal and divine...

But Hermes also gives conflicting reports: in one creation, there are two gods (Craftsman and Logos); in another, there are many; and elsewhere there is one. That being said, were he consistent, I still would not take all of his discourses as a package deal, much as I reject the OT and its insistence upon salvation of flesh rather than of the soul (in exoteric Judaism, there is no guarantee of the soul, just the breath). Hermes was a wise Pagan who received visions from Jesus and wisdom of the Ancients, but I will not say he is infallable--I am a Christian above all and a Hermetist second (or rather third/fourth).

I can say nothing with regards to what I know nothing of (egregors, tulpas--things I would rather not think about because of personal associations), but I can say that the Fae and Ghosts most certainly exist astrally, as either Logos/Tao or some concurrent force beyond my ken (perhaps in the writings of Valentinus).

>where would salvation come from?
>Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - John 14:6 KJV

Yet still through the practices of the Eastern religions, a soul comes closer to Moksha/Theosis/&c., though without Grace, they cannot escape from metempsychosis from their current lives.

Question: We can at least both agree that Jesus lived clothed in flesh, as a man? Otherwise, if he was but a spirit or vision, his perfect life becomes much less remarkable.

>> No.10535  

There can be only one thing worthy of pursuit and that is Grace. Jesus most certainly came in the flesh, he was man and God. The OT has to have weight, otherwise the prophesies of Jesus's arrival wouldn't mean anything. I need to read and think more and we can get back to this.

Oh yeah, where is the salvation of flesh only in the OT? I'm not familiar with that. Exoteric Judaism is a false religion, they denied their own savior. I don't consider anything "judaic" written after 30 AD to be of any use.

Marine Corps, maybe MARSOC or Force Recon if I can make the cut, then the French Foreign Legion or go to airline pilot school. Definitely low QOL in the Legion but ever since I read Appel and 5 Years in the Legion I've been in love with the romance of living hard in Corsica and jumping out of planes every week with a bunch of international psychos.

Hello; PSA I'm giving a talk on 2/27 from 7P~8P on Centennial campus EB2 Rm. #3001 with the NCSU LUG and I'd love it if we could get a good and excited group out that night; I'm proposing / demonstrating a completely new concept for a purely P2P (i.e. peer-to-peer) overlay network on top of the Internet which functions like other existing P2P networks (Napster, GNUtella, Bitcoin) but is optimized and designed exclusively to provide for the distributed hosting and discovery of お絵描き (i.e. simply, "drawings") with a rigourous body of semantic/meaningful metadata attached to each file meant to rival that of hosted sites like Danbooru.
Come out if you're interested in something like this, even if you have no idea what any of that means; I'm extremely fired up about this idea and I'm hoping to get other people excited too.

Are there any entrepeneural resources on campus?
I'm looking for advice on acquiring / managing venture capital for a thing I'm doing; of course the Internet is a great resource but I need a more grounded resource, someone I can bother in the flesh. Heard anything? Know anybody? The E-garage on Centennial is the closest thing I am aware of, but there are no advisors/SMEs, just other students
