Reaching for the shrooms, ah, maybe a little too early for that…

I just listened to the “Ratio vs. Intellectus” episode of “Classical Stuff you Should Know” where they discussed the Greek concepts of “Ratio” roughly, seeking and categorizing facts and “Intellectus” or, contemplatively letting the deeper meaning of a reality infuse you. At least that’s how they described it. It struck me what an exercise in Intellectus it is to watch these. It’s futile to try to grasp anything rational, despite the tantaizing near-tangibleness of it all, but it all feels so meaningful

Still, my brain can’t let go of “What did they feed this thing?” and “What is it trying to do?”

There’s a lot more where that came from. Check out reddit.com/r/DeepDream.
