To Regular Post Mail a follow up letter to the Canada Federal Human Rights Commission, asking where the 10 claim forms that I requested last month are.

I am in jurisdictional limbo, complaining about the Federal Level to the Provincial

I still need to send a copy of that to the BC Human Rights Tribunal, along with the Translink correspondence, and the letters that I still have to do to Shopper’s Drug Mart and Royal Columbian Hospital.

    The real conversation is not, nor has it ever been about the word “nigger”. It’s really about a white supremacist mindset being told that it cannot do something, or in this case, say something. They don’t like that.

    Of course, the go-to defense is “well Black people use it too”, as if they know the minds of millions of Black people around the world, and many of us do not.

    exactly!

    I find it appalling that someone would even want to use the “free speech” ploy when it comes to using derogatory offensive words. Is that the justification for defending racism now? If so that’s fucking pathetic and the tactics of a closet racists.

Mild Panic Attack Today

Caused by my Skyrim video game. So, I turned the game off and went back to bed.

I lay very still until the swirling and nausea went away

there was enough air

I wasn’t in danger of falling down and hurting myself

I could calm my breathing and know it was silly

a blur of frustration at the task repetition,

the video game character in a dark cave stuck in water to the waist

freaking dragons attacking too often

so I just turned it off and laid down until

my brain calmed down and I lightly dozed

laughing at the imaginary danger

but aware of the physical reality

of the brain/body response to stimulation

even simulated;

there are not many games for the playstation 4 that are not action/adventure/fantasy

So, in response to the question posed in the previous post

how does one know how ethical one is

 

the usual response is the cliche of doing the right thing when no one is watching

and I think the more interesting test is to do a simulation

and see how many wrong things you are comfortable doing to simulated people

when it is what real people are going through

determine your level of tolerance towards the suffering of others

just so you don’t have to

or see how good you can be, and where that goes you too, eh.

leaders and followers, enablers and resististors

that technology leveraged into the generational gap and overturning

of demographic class struggle of who gets in the front vs back door

who owns vs drives the car

Canada’s strangest laws: From witchcraft to blasphemy to sleigh bells

COMMENTARY: At long last, Canada’s blasphemy law is dead – National | Globalnews.ca
COMMENTARY: At long last, Canada’s blasphemy law is dead
COMMENTARY: At long last, Canada’s blasphemy law is dead

In Denmark, it took the looming spectacle of a man facing trial for burning a Koran to convince that country to scrap its centuries-old blasphemy law.

In Ireland, it took a police investigation into actor and comedian Stephen Fry (who said in a television interview, among other things, that “the god who created this universe, if it was created by God, is quite clearly a maniac”) to prompt a conversation about whether that country’s blasphemy law makes any sense. It’s still on the books, at least for now.

Fortunately here in Canada it didn’t take any sort of outrageous prosecution to convince the government to scrap our blasphemy law. In fact, it was accomplished with relatively little fanfare.

On Tuesday, the Liberals unveiled Bill C-51, which aims to “clean up the Criminal Code” by further clarifying sexual assault laws and also by eliminating a number of provisions that have been found unconstitutional, are similar to those found unconstitutional, or are simply obsolete and/or redundant.

READ MORE: Government bringing sexual assault law up to speed with the courts, times 

That includes section 296 of the Criminal Code, which is the prohibition on publishing a “blasphemous libel.” It will now be relegated to the ash bin of history, along with other such relics as “challenging someone to a duel,” “possessing or publishing crime comics,” and “fraudulently pretending to practice witchcraft.”

A law prohibiting blasphemy should be anathema for any country that purports to value freedom of expression and freedom of religion — and that includes Canada. It’s arguable that it never should have been drafted in the first place, but it certainly should have been scrapped long ago.

Canada has had a blasphemy law on the books since 1892. It’s been 90 years since the last person was convicted: Toronto atheist and Rationalist Society member Ernest Victor Sterry was convicted of blasphemy in 1927 and sentenced to 60 days in jail.

READ MORE: Canada’s strangest laws: From witchcraft to blasphemy to sleigh bells

But the charge itself has been used as recently as 1980. The owners of a movie theatre in Sault Ste. Marie were charged with blasphemous libel for the “crime” of screening Monty Python’s Life of Bryan, a British satire film about the life and death of Jesus Christ.

Fortunately, Ontario’s attorney-general stepped in to put a stop to the case. Had he not, though, how far would it have gone? How much would the theatre owners have had to bear in terms of legal costs to simply assert their basic rights as Canadians?

It’s all but certain that a charge under section 296 would not have held up in court, but it should never have to get to that point. The Liberals deserve credit for making this long overdue change.

As one Danish lawmaker recently put it, “Religion should not dictate what is allowed and what is forbidden to say publicly. It gives religion a totally unfair priority in society.” As it happens, of course, there are numerous countries when religion does in fact dictate what it forbidden to say publicly. In countries like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran, blasphemy is punishable by death.

READ MORE: Duel challenges, fake witchcraft and crime comics, finally, may soon all become legal

If Canada is going to be a voice for human rights on the world state and speak out against the abuses of these regimes (which certainly we should), it undermines our cause when our own laws concede the point that blasphemy is a crime. To that end, the elimination of section 296 sends a strong message.

Furthermore, though, it demonstrates the clear and obvious correlation between the countries where blasphemy laws are most vigorously enforced and those countries where freedom religion is most nonexistent. Abandoning this law helps to strengthen freedom of religion in this country.

That freedom guarantees one’s right to believe, but it bestows no obligation upon anyone else to respect those beliefs. “God is great” and “God is a myth” should be equally protected speech. Freedom of religion entails the freedom to reject a religion or reject all faith entirely. The state itself must remain neutral on such matters — what we might also refer to as “secularism.”

It’s unfortunate that’s it’s taken 125 years to figure this out, but it’s a victory worth savouring.

King and Queen Day

I have placed my order at an actual music store for the Sony A Boy From Tupelo release next month
they didn’t have it in their system, so they wrote my name down on paper
Oddly, I do not feel confident

however, today, I picked up 2 cds: Queen on the Air all their BBC performances

 

I went out with both parents, first to a medical building stop, where I had had a coffee shop adventure already, – I can’t remember a keyword to find the post to link to

there was a racist incident with the coffee shop owner, wherein I bought a muffin for a toddler on behalf of a young mother

I sat in the vehicle rather than wait in the building, then it was off to Guildford Mall

brunch at The Pantry

then, the Sunrise Records music story with CDs and LPs and related products.

Then, I walked through the mall to the Nespresso, then, meeting up with the parents for the return home

I spent most of the day playing Skyrim and then we watched the Denzel Washington Magnificent Seven; and while it’s a been a while, the original was better

JK Rowling just gave an epic lesson on sexism to a man who called Theresa May a ‘whore’
JK Rowling just gave an epic lesson on sexism to a man who called Theresa May a ‘whore’
Connecting our consciousnesses to artificial intelligence has long been an idea floated in science fiction, but at the end of April, two major companies announced their intentions to make that a reality.
On April 20, Facebook announced that it was working on building a device that could turn your thoughts directly into texts without you speaking or typing.
A few days after that, Elon Musk announced a similar project that would let you turn your thoughts into text and connects the brain directly to the Internet.
While the challenges Facebook and Musk have talked about facing are mostly technological based on building better brain sensors, both must overcome our lack of understanding of the mind itself.
In order to read your thoughts, a machine would need to understand how you think, and exactly how language works.
To try and answer those questions, Inverse spoke with Noam Chomsky professor emeritus at MIT and the father of modern linguistics about the connection between language and thought, and the rising technology of brain computer interfaces.
Chomsky says that he thinks the tech is nearly impossible to create, and that if it can be built it is ultimately dangerous.Do you think it’s possible for a machine turn your thoughts into words?
It would first of all have to have a way of determining where our thoughts are. Nobody knows how to do that. You and I, for example, when we introspect into what we’re now doing, producing complex sentences, we can’t access the thinking that’s lying behind it. There’s no known technology that can do it, either.
What you can do, maybe, is finding ways to determine whether an organization of motor activity in the brain which can be detected could, say, move a level or something. That’s conceivable. Anything like finding out what our thoughts is is just beyond science fiction.You’ve talked before about how we don’t necessarily think in words. Is that what makes this so difficult?
The kind of thinking that we have introspective access to is typically in words, but I should say, there’s nothing much understood about this.
To take a classic example, when Alan Turing wrote his famous article about can machines think, he started off by saying that the question of whether machines can think is too meaningless to deserve discussion. What he said is, “The problem isn’t the notion of thinking. It’s just so vague that you can’t ask a serious question about it.” He said when he’s asked, “what is thinking,” about the only thing he can say is, “That kind of buzzing that goes on in my head.” That’s how much we understand about it.
A lot’s been learned, and there’s a little known about the neurophysiology of it, but it’s a very difficult topic. It’s one of the hardest questions in the sciences.

Why is it so hard?
There’s all kinds of stuff going on in the brain, but we don’t know how to tap it. Part of the reasons are ethical. We know a lot about the neurophysiology of vision, for example, but the reason is that we’ve done experiments on cats and monkeys who have about the same visual system we do. Whether rightly or wrongly, scientists do invasive experiments with other animals. You put an electrode into the brain and you can find out what a particular neuron is doing. Out of that, you can construct a lot of understanding of the way the brain is analyzing visual signals and so on.
You can’t do that in the case of language, because for one thing, there is no other animal that has anything like the same system, and we don’t permit studies of that kind with humans.
The technology that’s used to study the brain [in humans] is noninvasive, so it’s picking up electrical signals or studying what amounts to blood flow. That’s what fMRI does. That gives you some information about the locations in the brain where things are happening, but it doesn’t tell you very much about the nature of the actual processing that’s going on.

What if instead of trying to turn your thoughts into some representation of them, this actually just connected your mind to someone else’s mind?
We have something like that. It’s called language. Language enables you to express your thoughts in a form which I can understand. That’s an astonishing property unique to humans, and trying to figure out where it came from is a deep problem of science.
To take a concrete example, when we speak, the words have to come out in sequence. One word follows the last. There’s good reason to think that that linear ordering is not part of language. It’s just imposed by the specific sensory motor system, the articulatory system, that just requires that everything come out in a sequence. What’s internal to the mind and is yielding our thoughts probably doesn’t have sequence, but you can’t introspect into that.

Are there specific challenges to developing the technology you would need for that?
We don’t even have the kind of technology that will enable us to understand the most elementary computations of language, the simple things, like why one word follows another.
Take the sentence, “John is a man,” and compare it with, “John are a man.”
The first one is grammatical. The second one isn’t grammatical, but we barely have the beginning of technology that can even make distinctions like that. The technology doesn’t really know what’s happening.
The study of what’s going on in the brain is very hard, even how a memory is preserved. How do you remember what you saw yesterday or five minutes ago? Even that is barely understood.

Thinking about how much we actually understand both language and the brain, what do you think is a realistic next step?
A realistic question, and one that is being studied is: what properties of the human brain enable us to have the capacity to produce new expressions which express our thoughts and are intelligible to others, and to do it over in an infinite range?
Just see what parts of the brain are even involved in this. That’s a hard problem. If that problem is solved (and there are some ideas about it) then the next problem, which is much harder, is to determine how the brain is doing it. That’s way beyond anything we understand, even for much simpler things than language.

If it is eventually possible to read our thoughts, do we actually want to do this?
I think we should not want it, just as I do not want Facebook and Google and the NSA to have access to my activities. They do it, but not because I want them to. If they could have access to our thoughts, which is as I say beyond science fiction, that would be even worse. They shouldn’t even have the access they do have.

I wouldn’t want technology like that to exist. It’s much too dangerous. If you can even imagine something like this being possible, there’s the ethical question about whether it should exist, which in my mind is a little bit like should nuclear weapons exist. Nuclear weapons are a very complex technology, but we’d be better off if they didn’t exist.If it was real, are there things
If it was real, I would think there should be efforts to end it, just as I think there should be efforts right now to prevent private corporations or the national government from obtaining detailed information about my actions and preferences. It’s none of their business.
