 Crazy people don't know they're crazy. I know I'm crazy, therefore l'm not crazy, isn't that crazy?

 Kanye West's case blows my mind. Not only did he single-handedly create the one of the greatest music style of the past 20 years, but he also flipped the high-end fashion industry on its head with his totally unorthodox Yeezy style, all while inadvertently making Taylor Swift famous. 

How the heck is that even possible?

 Hi πŸ‘‹ 
 I posted this after reading her post 🀣, I thought we should at least try to start these memes. 
 If this is the start of a new era of organ transplantation, where we can use animal organs to salvage, sustain and save human lives, I dont know how to take this in. https://image.nostr.build/648975ae463b739aa07cc5eb98b9d4e4a6261ae1a0c3945c4457c22095e3780e.jpg

 Picture from the rural Kashmir Valley. Living amidst these majestic mountains feels surreal.

 Users who don't have that option essentially find themselves somewhat isolated in long-thread conversations.

I have some experience with this because I use multiple clients. There is a huge difference between Amethyst and Damus notifications, more than many people realize.

Although I wouldn't say it was censorship because I understood the intention, making it optional is a step in the right direction in my opinion. And I must say, I love your philosophy as a whole. 
 It definitely has a use case. Vitor has made other filters optional. I really hope he makes this notification filter optional as well. https://image.nostr.build/adce3ebb1f39f9c54b35f55d5e07a261fd85df891c09361cb8d1d75e20e64b72.jpg 
 El Salvador is incredibly fortunate to have such a great leader guiding them through these chaotic times. 

He is perhaps the only politician I truly respect, not just for his advocacy of Bitcoin, but also for his significant improvements to the lives of his people. Living Legend

 He is an absolute legend, but I must say, I am not really happy with his upcoming fight against Jake Paul. I mean, he is 57 years old, and Jake Paul is 25. 
However, no matter what happens, he will always be the GOAT. 
 If you ever wonder why things are the way they are, remember that approx 50% of the population doesn't even have an inner monologue; they're basically NPCs. https://image.nostr.build/f1cdeba5ca51efaa242780063801660dd26868139f611b6dd98246513d833fde.jpg 
 This is hard for me to wrap my head around since I have full blown conversations with myself on the regular.  

No inner monologue is very NPC-like and would explain a lot of things. 
 Same, but also Imagine admitting this publicly 🀣 
 Inner dialogues refer to the thoughts and reflections that occur within a person's mind, involving self-talk, analysis, and contemplation about various aspects of life, decisions, or emotions. 

I thought it was universal, but it turns out there is a large percentage of people who can't have a conversation with themselves. It's really hard for me to wrap my head around, to be honest. πŸ˜… 
 By the way, I must clarify that the last NPC part was just humor. Of course, I don't really believe people who don't have inner monologues are NPCs. πŸ˜‚

Everyone is different, and everyone has a different thought process. Also, I think this research is very oversimplified; we don't fully understand the human thought process and consciousness.

I believe If you are thinking about the existence of the universe and the history of human beings, you are definitely not an NPC. That's probably the most human thing to do. 
 This marks the emergence of the first AI engineer, enabling user without coding knowledge to transform their ideas into apps. 

The landscape of computer science is poised to undergo significant democratization.

 Hallucination poses a significant challenge in AI, and no one truly knows how to completely solve it. AI tends to make up information. 

While the ability to run code provides certain advantages, there is still much work to be done, and AI is not replacing developers anytime soon. 

However, it will undoubtedly assist people in building their projects, especially if they are starting from scratch. 
 Read about him and his manifesto; he might be one of the most fascinating people you will ever read about. There are a lot of documentaries about him on YouTube. 
 I don't think many people realize this today, but his manifesto is going to be the basis of a future decelerationist movement, which is inevitable as we continue accelerating towards a techno-future. 
 Read about him and his manifesto; he might be one of the most fascinating people you will ever read about. There are a lot of documentaries about him on YouTube. 
 A true legend, he was ahead of his time. Although people may not fully grasp his words now, they will soon come to understand.

 I can't stress enough how important it is for the Bitcoin community to completely disassociate itself from the so-called crypto industry. 

The 'crypto industry' is nothing but a cesspool of scams. It's disgusting.

 I really hope so. These people are using Bitcoin's credibility to scam the most vulnerable people out of their life savings. We don't want any part of it. 
 Switching from cigs and cigars to nicotine vapes and Zyn was a game-changer for me. After 3 weeks, I'm already feeling the diff. It's super convenient, no smell, and way healthier without burning all that nasty stuff. 

Not pushing it if you're not into nicotine, but if you are, consider a safer route!

 OpenAI has just responded to Elon's lawsuit. 

They basically called Elon a fraud and showed receipts… Lmfao πŸ˜‚

They even posted his email, where he wasn't just accepting it to be closed source but also attempting to take it over and merge OpenAI with Tesla.

 He should not have gone to the Ethereum conference. By the way, I really get a gifter vibe from him for some reason. https://image.nostr.build/aa2b5473e28b3ad4da0ce798a9cd5671d9fe05debe8a77a555f0614f3c2ec011.jpg 
 I love 8 Ball, but my affection for snooker is slightly stronger. Overall, both are fantastic games. I play it all the time. 🀍 
 I recently learned about sand cats, and they are such fascinating beings. The fact that cats love sand means they basically play all day. πŸ˜‚

 Yeah, it turns out they are expert hunters. They kill snakes and other animals like that. They have a very sophisticated ear, and their reaction speed is faster than snakes, so snakes can't even bite them. https://image.nostr.build/65c5a9e7727ea9c0de8d7349059167c9b14b7d885ceae5c475cc367ac4db9730.jpg 
 You can test the new Amethyst 'propose an edit' feature on this note. I will accept the requests. Just don't write anything weird.

Write here:


 
 I really appreciate this feature; it's very out-of-the-box and community-oriented. 
 So far, I have approved approximately 10 to 12 requests, and they were not in a proper sequence. I think more information around contributions will be great. 

I can see the potential use cases, and we should probably start a community news account maintained and managed by the community.

 This is how the Himalayas came into existence. 

This small clip starts blowing your mind when you comprehend the scale and magnitude of these majestic mountains.

 This is a view of the Himalayan mountain range, likely the most beautiful part, Kashmir valley. 

It's just a 5-minute walk from the place where I am purchasing land. Not for a home, as I am always on the move, perhaps to build some sort of hut.

 By the way, it is well-suited to be a personal place to stay. They even have broadband and all the important stuff, including Amazon. And having your own land in your hometown seems like the right thing to do. 
 Yeah, I can speak Urdu; in fact, that is technically my mother tongue. I still speak it with some of my friends and relatives. 
 Currently, only residents of the state are permitted to purchase land, even the other are citizens are not allowed but anyone can visit and stay for as long as they wish. It's always a refreshing experience. 
 Google AI, so far, has been a disaster. I mean, think about it, they created the Transformer architecture, which is essentially the backbone of modern AI apps. They had all the data, more than anyone else, indexed. In short, Sundar missed it, and Satya didn't, but you never know.  
 They got him. People in power don't want us to have this. πŸ˜‚ By the way, he sounds like a very interesting guy. πŸ€”
